Abstract

The Guanajuato mining district is located in the central part of the state of Guanajuato, 475 kn1 northwest of Mexico City (Fig. 1). The district has an approximate length of 20 km and a width of 16 km, and includes the mining areas of La Luz to the west, Santa Rosa to the north, and Peregtina-El Cubo to the east (Fig. 2). The city of Guanajuato is located at the center of the district. Guanajuato can be reached by paved highways, railroad, or by commercial plane (by way of León airport, 62 km from Guanajuato city). The Torres-Cedros mine, which has the greatest production in the district, is located 3.2 km from the city and can be reached by a dirt road.
