The Campo Del Cielo refers to a group of iron meteorites or to the area where they were found situated on the border between the provinces of Chaco and. 1,000 kilometers (620 mi) northwest of.The crater field covers an area of 3×18.5 kilometers and contains at least 26 craters, the largest being 115×91 meters. The craters' age is estimated as 4,0005,000 years. The craters, containing iron masses, were reported in 1576, but were already well known to the aboriginal inhabitants of the area.
The craters and the area around contain numerous fragments of an iron meteorite. The total weight of the pieces so far recovered exceeds 100 tons, making the meteorite the heaviest one ever recovered on Earth.
The largest fragment, consisting of 37 tons, is the second heaviest single-piece meteorite recovered on Earth, after the Hoba meteorite. In 1576, the governor of a province in.
Commissioned the military to search for a huge mass of iron, which he had heard that Natives used for their weapons. The Natives claimed that the mass had fallen from the sky in a place they called Piguem Nonralta which the Spanish translated as Campo del Cielo. The expedition found a large mass of metal protruding out of the soil. They assumed it was an iron mine and brought back a few samples, which were described as being of unusual purity. The governor documented the expedition and deposited the report in the Archivo General de.
But it was quickly forgotten and later reports on that area merely repeated the Native legends. Following the legends, in 1774 don Bartolome Francisco de Maguna rediscovered the iron mass which he called el Meson de Fierro (the Table of Iron). Maguna thought the mass was the tip of an iron vein. The next expedition, led by Rubin de Celis in 1783, used explosives to clear the ground around the mass and found that it was probably a single stone.Celis estimated its mass as 15 tons and abandoned it as worthless. He himself did not believe that the stone had fallen from the sky and assumed that it had formed by a volcanic eruption. Those samples were later analyzed and found to contain 90% iron and 10% nickel and assigned to a meteorite origin. Later, many iron pieces were found in the area weighing from a few milligrams to 34 tons. A mass of about 1 ton known as Otumpa was located in 1803. A 634 kilograms (1,398 lb) portion of this mass was taken to.
In 1813 and later donated to the. Other large fragments are summarized in the table below. The mass called el Taco was originally 3,070 kilograms (6,770 lb), but the largest remaining fragment weighs 1,998 kilograms (4,405 lb). The largest mass of 37 tons was located in 1969 at a depth of 5 m using a metal detector. This stone, named El Chaco, is the second heaviest single-piece meteorite after the Hoba meteorite.
However, the total mass of the Campo del Cielo fragments found so far exceeds 60 tons, making it the heaviest meteorite ever recovered on Earth. Samples of charred wood were taken from beneath the meteorite fragments and analyzed for carbon-14 composition. The results indicate the date of the fall to be around 4,200-4,700 years ago.
