Proaño Mine

Fresnillo

The Proaño mine is located on the hill of the same name, named in 1551 by the Spanish explorer Diego Fernández de Proaño while he was looking for a complete metal hill that the inhabitants of the area had told him about.

And although he saw silver in the open, he didn't pay much attention to the discovery that took a few years to start being exploited.

However, the Proaño mine has been working for five centuries and has a sector that can be visited by the public. During the tour, you can access tunnels located more than 700 meters deep and observe an open vein.

Around the Proaño mine, an ecological park was developed that has a viewpoint from where you can get beautiful views of Fresnillo, a series of trails and suspension bridges, a small zoo with local fauna, and a mining museum.

The Proaño mine is located near the Fresnillo mine, which is the largest silver producer in the world.
