THE HILLSBORO MINING DISTRICT

(Back to The Holes In The Ground Portal Page)


Mines and mining districts are ill defined.  Geographic coverage and names have varied over time.  In general, the mines listed here are to the east and northeast of the village of Hillsboro, New Mexico.


The following is a listing of the mines of the Hillsboro Mining District, the minerals that were taken from the mines, blogs on the Black Range Rag about the mines, and links to other material about the mines.  Blog entries which are dates (e.g. March 23, 1883) are links to blogs about the issue of The Black Range newspaper of that date.
