Road Log From Chihuahua to Naica and Parral

January 01, 1990


The main item of interest is the visit to the Naica mine, which is reached by travelling southwards along valley floors to Delicias, and then southwestward to the mining community. The deposits comprise a lead-zinc-silver assemblage and are well developed in numerous mantos and breccia pipes that are located in Cretaceous carbonate host rocks. Felsic dikes, of Oligocene age, are associated with minor skarn development in their immediate vicinity. The latter part of the day will be spent by travelling southwards to Ciudad Camargo and Jimenez, and then west to Parral, located at the eastrn margin of Sierra Madre Occidental.
