Volcán Miñiques volcano is a large basaltic-andesite to dacitic volcanic complex south of Laguna Miscanti and Laguna Miñiques in northern Chile.
Its summit contains 3 overlapping E-W trending craters, partially filled by lava domes and flows. A prominent lava flow extends northwestward from the summit to the lower flanks and separates Laguna Miñiques from Laguna Miscanti.
Laguna Miscanti is a heart-shaped brackish lake located 8 km north of Miniques Volcano. The lake is part of one of the 7 sectors of the Los Flamencos National Reserve.
