28 de Noviembre, written out as Veintiocho de Noviembre, is a town of roughly 5,300 inhabitants in southwestern Santa Cruz Province, Argentina. The town is near the border with Chile, not far from Puerto Natales. Its main economic activity is coal mining. 28 de Noviembre was officially founded on November 28, 1959, on the second anniversary of adoption of the provincial constitution, when a decree merged several settlements into one town which was named after the date of foundation.
