Benito Juarez Mines Company

Benito Juarez Mines Company
Item# 4712ol

The Benito Juarez Mines Company was incorporated in 1907 in New Jersey, with mining operations in Salinas, Mexico.

The company was named after Benito Juarez. Born Benito Pablo Juárez García, Juarez was a lawyer and politician of Zapotec origin from Oaxaca who served five terms as president of Mexico, 1858–1861 as interim, then 1861–1865, 1865–1867, 1867–1871 and 1871–1872. He resisted the French occupation of Mexico, overthrew the Second Mexican Empire, restored the Republic, and used liberal efforts to modernize the country.

Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of Juarez’s life in politics is his background: he was a full-blooded native of Zapotec descent – the only full-blooded native to ever serve as president of Mexico – who did not even speak Spanish until he was in his teens.
