The mines, named La Negra and H14, have the capacity to generate 2 million mt of iron ore/year. Located on both sides of the border between Coahuila and Chihuahua, La Negra is 60 km from the 3.5 million mt/year Hercules mine, while H14 is 3.5 km.

The mines "will reinforce the supply of iron concentrate that is sent to the furnaces of Ahmsa in Monclova," the company said in a statement.
