Mina de Coricancha, San Mateo de Huanchor, Districto de San Mateo, Provincia de Huarochiri, Departamento de Lima, Perú


The mine owned by Belgian Nyrstar NV. with more than 60 years of operating history and currently comprises a 600-tonne per day ore processing facility, is located in the Central Andes, San Mateo District, approximately 90 km east of Lima.
Specifically, the underground mine is in the Viso-Aruri poly-metallic mining district, Tamboraque area, 5km southeast of San Mateo and 17 km northeast from the provincial capital Matucana. It operates on the flank of the Aruri Valley and is characterized as a deposit of poly-metallic veins in andesitic rocks of the Rimac Formation.
The hydrothermal mineralization consists of low-sulfidation and narrow veins containing zinc, lead, copper, gold and silver.
