A lead-zinc mine with a 1,200 tons/day capacity. Operated by Cia. Minera Santa Luisa, owned by Mitsui Mining & Smelting Co. (Japan).
Famous for excellent pyrite and fluorite specimens. According to well-known mineral specimen importer Rock Currier, the Huanzala mine probably holds the world record with regard to total tonnage of mineral specimens produced by a single mine.

Previously noted as in Huallanca District, Dos de Mayo Province, Huánuco Department, Peru, but border has changed.
