MEXICO CITY, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Shares in miner Grupo Mexico fell sharply on Monday to their lowest price in nearly three months after the company said rains last week triggered an overflow at its massive Buenavista mine just weeks after a toxic spill.

Grupo Mexico shares lost 5.13 percent to 44.17 pesos in early trading following the announcement from Sunday.

Grupo Mexico's image has taken a hit since a massive toxic spill in the northern state of Sonora in August led to threats that it could lose one of its biggest mining concessions. (Reporting by Veronica Gomez)
