Mina Torrecillas is a small mine (or rather a number of small prospects) containing native arsenic, located in the Salar Grande district, immediately on the coast, south of Iquique.

Note: Currierite can easily be confused with an unknown similar looking arsenate. Currierite is much rarer and requires SEM-EDS for identification.
Some samples sold as Currierite turned out to be the unknown mineral.
