Hydrothermal polymetallic vein system at the far southern end of the "bolivian tin belt". Principal veins are the Chocaya, Oploca, San Miguel, San Pedro, and Potosi veins, emplaced in low grade metamorphosed Ordovician shales and sandstones of the Acoyte Formation. Ore-bearing solutions related to late Miocene dacitic intrusives. Underground mining began in 1936 and continued on a relatively small scale until 1989. Present operator acquired the property in the 1990's and has reopened the mine as an open-pit (coordinates below).
Located at an altitude of about 4300 m asl.

Note: "ottemanite" specimens on the market from here are actually the new species suredaite.
