Mineral de Pozos
Así, llegaron y se crearon varias compañías en Mineral de Pozo para explotar las minas, siendo algunas de las más productivas la de Santa Brígida, Escondida, Triángulo, Potosina, El Dorado, Trinidad, Ocampo, Nona y la Mina de Baldomero de la cual solo quedan en pie las parededs que aluden a ese pasado de esplendor y bajo que se vivía en el pueblo durante el Porfiriato. Los minerales y metales que normalmente se extraían de estas minas eran oro, plata, acantita, bornita, tepetate, cobre, yodo, hierro, plomo y mercurio.
Debido a los constantes accidentes a los que los mineros estaban expuestos en aquella época, el dueño de la Mina de San Baldomero mandó a edificar un centro de salud conocido entonces como El Hospitalito,
So, several companies came to Mineral de Pozos to exploit the mines, some of the most productive ones were that of Santa Brígida, Escondida, Triángulo, El Dorado, Trinidad, Ocampo, Nona, and Baldomero Mine, in this last one only the walls are left standing that allude to the past splendor and luxury that the village lived during the Porfirio Diaz era. The minerals and metals that were extracted from these mines were gold, silver, acanthite, bornite, tepetate, copper, iodine, iron, lead and mercury.
Due to constant accidents that the miners were exposed to at that time, the owner of the San Baldomero built a health center known then as The Hospitalito, where every day injured people were attended during the labor day. The structure of this building is still standing, and from it, there is a path leading to the Cerro de la Cruz, site of a chapel with an exceptional view of the town of Mineral de Pozos.
