Latitude & Longitude (WGS84): 20° 56' 59'' South , 66° 17' 59'' West (est.)

Locality type:Mine
Köppen climate type:BSk : Cold semi-arid (steppe) climate


NB: The Animas, Siete Suyos, Oploca, and Chocaya mines all worked the same system of veins and have very similar mineralogies. For this reason it is generally impossible to tell which mine a specimen actually came from, and "errors" are common both on collectors' labels as well as in the scientific literature, so many collectors just refer to it generically as the "Chocaya-Animas" mine.

Alternative Label Names

This is a list of additional names that have been recorded for mineral labels associated with this locality in the minID database. This may include previous versions of the locality name hierarchy from mindat.org, data entry errors, and it may also include unconfirmed sublocality names or other names that can only be matched to this level.
