We prove a result motivated by Williams's classification of expanding attractors and the Franks--Newhouse Theorem on codimension-$1$ Anosov diffeomorphisms: If $\Lambda$ is a topologically mixing hyperbolic attractor such that $\dim\E^u$|$\Lambda$ = 1, then either $\Lambda$ is expanding or is homeomorphic to a compact abelian group (a toral solenoid). In the latter case, $f$|$\Lambda$ is conjugate to a group automorphism. As a corollary, we obtain a classification of all $2$-dimensional basic sets in $3$-manifolds. Furthermore, we classify all topologically mixing hyperbolic attractors in $3$-manifolds in terms of the classically studied examples, answering a question of Bonatti in [1].
