Origins: Mina Ojuela , Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Ojuela was a small mining settlement located in northern Mexico. The settlement is now well known as a ghost town as a result of the ore being exhausted.
Ojuela was established after the discovery of abandoned gold and silver mines in the area in 1598. The Ojuela Mine produced a large quantity of mineral during the last part of the 19th century. With the advent of the railroad, all the extracted ore were transported away from the mine by train and processed in the nearby town of Mapimí, Durango.
