The Las Truchas deposits cover approximately 14 km2 at the crests of Cerros Santa Clara, El Campamento, Las Truchas, El Volcán, Valverde, El Tubo, La Bandera, and Leopardo, forming part of the southwestern mountain massif known as Sierra Arteaga in the Sierra Madre del Sur, that extends along part of the Pacific coast and toward the southeastern end of the Sierra Madre Occidental (Figs. 1, 2).

The deposits are located in the Melchor Ocampo municipality of Michoacán State, 4.5 km directly northwest of the coast town of Playa Azul (Fig. 1).
