Mesa De Oro, "Table of Gold," was once a fabled city defended with honor for centuries by Native Americans. Its exact location is a guarded secret and is built in a mesa, an elevated area of land with flat tops and flanked with steep cliffs, near an underground river. De Oro was most likely somewhere in southwest America where mesa formations are prevalent. The only way to enter Mesa is through a pulley system. Ra's al Ghul led a band of Spanish Conquistadores to conquer and pillage Mesa De Oro. The wealth stolen from this city became the foundations of Ra's' vast wealth.
Centuries later, Ra's al Ghul could no longer be effectively healed by the Lazarus Pit for a normal amount of time. To supplement his immersions, Ra's stole the Shaman Staff and kidnapped Superman. He and his followers then transported Superman to Mesa De Oro to perform a unique ritual. The Staff could drain Superman's vitality and transfer it to Ra's. Luckily, Batman conducted a spectral analysis and found traces of jet fuel. After finding a hangar occupied by Ra's' Society of Shadows, Batman made his way to Mesa De Oro and saved Superman. A partial cave-in led to the disappearance of Talia and Ra's al Ghul but they both managed to survive after falling into the nearby river.
