Coal Deposits of the Santa Clara District Near Tonichi, Sonora, Mexico

Description: From abstract: The Santa Clara coal district is 7 to 10 kilometers west of Tonichi, a small town on the Rio Yaqui, in southeastern Sonora, Mexico. Tonichi was the terminus of a branch railroad from Corral until May 1945, when the end of the line was removed. The coal deposits were developed by the Southern Pacific Railroad from the 1890's until about 1911, when the mines were abandoned, partly because the coal was found unsuitable for use in locomotives. Other coal deposits, near Los Bronces and San Javier, west of the Santa Clara district, were mined for a number of years to provide coal for a silver smelter at San Javier which was abandoned sometime during the 1920's. Since 1942 the Santa Clara deposits have been reopened; through 1945 about 50,000 tons of coal had been shipped, at first to the Boleo copper smelter at Santa Rosalia, Baja California, and more recently to Guadalajara, Jalisco, for the manufacture of calcium carbide.

Manganese Deposits of the Talamantes District Near Parral, Chihuahua, Mexico

Description: From abstract: The Talamantes district, 20 kilometers east of Parral in southern Chihuahua, has been the second largest producer of manganese ore in Mexico. Production, which started during World War I and has been more or less continuous since 1930, has totaled about 50,000 tons of ore with an average manganese content of 40 or 41 percent. The mines are on the Mesa de Talamantes, which is underlain by folded Cretaceous (?) limestone, overlain unconformably by gently dipping Tertiary rhyolite flows and tuff, volcanic breccia, agglomerate, and tuffaceous sandstone. Steeply dipping normal faults of northerly trend cut the rock and divide the mesa into a series of blocks.

Optical Calcite Deposits of the Republic of Mexico

Description: From abstract: Many small deposits of optical calcite (Iceland spar) were discovered in the States of Chihuahua, Durango, Sonora, and Sinaloa from early in 1942 to late in 1944. Exploration that began in Sonora led to the discovery of commercial deposits in the eastern part of that State, and subsequently other deposits were found and mined in southwestern and northeastern Chihuahua and in western and central Durango. The largest deposits can be reached by foot or by horse in from 1 to 3 hours from the nearest truck roads, but some of the small deposits are 1 to 3 days by horse from the nearest roads.
