Located in the northeast of the State of Zacatecas in north-central Mexico, Noche Buena is convenient to road transportation and power. This is a historic mining region, and skilled labour and smelters are readily available. Approximately five kilometres to the south of the operation is the Peñasquito mine, one of Goldcorp’s Mexican cornerstone operations.
The Noche Buena property lies within the eastern Mexican fold-belt, composed of folded Mesozoic clastic and carbonate sedimentary units. Its geology is similar to that of the adjacent Peñasquito operation, which contains world-class Au-Ag-Zn-Pb deposits.
