This province does not fit the established concept of a metallogenic province. However, its geology and physiography seem to control certain metallogenic aspects related to tectonics and epigenetic hydrothermalism over an estimated 185,000 km2 (Salas, 1975, p. 107), an area that almost crosses the country from east to west: from the Los Tuxtlas volcanic complex in Veracruz on the Gulf of Mexico to the Bahia de Banderas on the Pacific Coast of the state of Jalisco (Fig. 1).
