The Nuevo Mundo silicic lava dome and flow complex between Potosí and Uyuni in Bolivia is capped by pumice cones. Two viscous dacitic lava flows were erupted along a N-S fault and were associated with block-and-ash flows to the east. A later plinian explosive eruption produced an airfall-tephra deposit that extends as far as the renowned Bolivian mining center of Potosí, 200 km to the east. Nuevo Mundo was considered to be of late Pleistocene or Holocene age (de Silva, 2007 pers. comm.) and is the youngest volcanic center center of the vast Los Frailes ignimbrite plateau in the eastern Cordillera of Bolivia.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Nuevo Mundo. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Nuevo Mundo page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Nuevo Mundo.
The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Nuevo Mundo.
The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
