The Gochico Mine in southern Sonora (Fig. I) is reached from Hermosillo by traveling south along a scenic highway for 350 km to the town of Navajoa, then east 50 km along the federal highway to Alamos, northeast along 63 km of earthworks to the village of San Bernardo, and from there, a 10-km dirt road to the mine. The area has a small-craft landing field; both Alamos and Navajoa have paved runways. The nearest railroad station is Navajoa.
