Volcán Chiliques is a stratovolcano in northern Chile immediately south of Laguna Lejía. The volcano consists of a symmetrical cone rising 1000 m from the surrounding terrain and contains a 500 m wide crater. Several young lava flows are seen on its flanks and some might be younger than 10,000 years. The largest flow extends 5 km to the NW, but older flows have reached 10 km distance on the north flank towards Laguna Lejía.
In April 2002, first signs of a possible reawakening of the volcano were detected as new hot spots inside the crater.

2002 hot spots detected in crater
Until 2002, the volcano had been considered dormant or even extinct, but satellite images discovered weak hot spots in the crater and on the upper flank, which had not been there previously. These are probably new fumaroles, that might be indicators of a re-awakening of the volcano. This observation does NOT mean that an eruption of the volcano took place (even though it would be a very remote possibility that a small extrusion of lava took place and was only detected after it started to cool down again.) ...plus
