The village of Inca de Oro is located 100 km northeast
of Copiapó. Inca de Oro (in some times it was called "Cuba", interesting
is that TREUTLER in his map of 1852/57 uses Inca de Oro) was an
important mining center. Located in the wasteland Llano de Varas between
Carrera Pinto and Diego de Almagro. Inca de Oro has a long mining
history. Especially thanks to the gold sector in the southwest of town.
But also the sectors in Qda. Chañaral Alto and Sierra Caballo Muerto
were important sources of income.
As already mentioned: The current Inca de Oro was called Cuba, at one time San Pedro de Nolasco and now Inca de Oro. The railway station in many fountains is named San Pedro de Nolasco.
