The Santa Fe Mine is located in the municipality of Solosuchiapa in Chiapas State near the Chiapas/Tabasco state line. The town of Pichucalco (Chiapas) lies 40 km directly northwest, and Teapa (Tabasco) about 30 km north.

Access is by the Pichucalco–Tuxtla Gutiérrez unpaved roadway for 50 km through Ixtacomitán and Solosuchiapa to El Beneficio Ranch where a 3-km-long trail leads to the mine entrance. The roads are passable year-round. Paving of the Pichucalco–Tuxtla Gutiérrez road is scheduled in the near future (Fig. 1).
