Las Truchas is a surface mine located near the town of La Mira in Mexico's state of Michoacan. The mine, owned and operated by ArcelorMittal, supplies the company's nearby Lazaro Cardenas steel operation. Most of its production is a 67% Fe concentrate that feeds the pelletizing plant at the steel facility, which in turn feeds both the blast furnace and the DRI plant. Las Truchas low cost of labour, transport method and proximity with the steel plant place the mine as one of the lowest cost mining operations among ArcelorMittal's portfolio.
