Santa Eulalia is a world-class polymetallic mining district located in the central part of the state of Chihuahua, Mexico, 22 kilometres east of the city of Chihuahua. 

Mineralization in the area was originally discovered during the Spanish colonial period in the 1500s and recorded production has occurred over more than 300 years. 

Santa Eulalia ranks as one of Mexico’s primary silver– and base-metal-producing districts with nearly 450 million ounces of silver and substantial amounts of lead and zinc mined. 

Production and reserves for the district have been estimated to be about 50 million tonnes with grades of 125 to 350 g/t Ag, 2 to 8 per cent Pb and 3 to 12 per cent Zn, along with appreciable quantities of tin and vanadium.

The Santa Eulalia district covers approximately 48 square kilometres and is divided into three areas, the West camp, the Central camp and the East camp. West camp has produced most of the minerals from the district.

Cyprium Mining’s Potosi Silver mine is located in the West camp.
