HISTORY

Rosario San Juancito

American-owned company NYHRMC was responsible for operating the Rosario gold and silver mine in central Honduras and Nicaragua, which was owned and operated by Rosario Mining Company (NYHRMC).

 

For centuries, the mountains near Tegucigalpa were widely believed to be rich in gold and silver, attracting fortune-seekers from Central America, the United States, and other countries. During the following ten years, three million dollars’ worth of silver and gold were extracted from a well-known mine at San Juancito, some 40 kilometers northeast of Tegucigalpa. When Comayagua, Honduras’ capital city, was moved to Tegucigalpa, the rival town of Rosario Mining, it was speculated that Rosario Mining was somehow involved. San Juancito, a nearby village, had electricity before Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras.

 

Since the Spanish colonization of the area, the mountains around Tegucigalpa have been well-known for their gold and silver riches, attracting fortune seekers from all across Central America and the United States. The Rosario mine, a gold and silver producer in central Honduras and Nicaragua was owned and managed by the New York and Honduras Rosario Mining Company (NYHRMC), known as Rosario Mining Company.

Honduras: In central Honduras and Nicaragua, a gold and silver mine called Rosario was owned and managed by the New York and Honduras Rosario Mining Company (NYHRMC), also known as Rosario Mining Company.
