MINES OF THE TAYLOR CREEK TIN DISTRICT

AND HERMOSA 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 those found in the northeastern part of the Black Range in Sierra County, New Mexico.  The Taylor Creek Tin district is also known as the Black Range Tine District.  This listing includes the Salado Mountains Fluorspar Deposit.


The following is a listing of the mines of this area, 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.
