There are no Holocene eruptions known for La Negrillar. If this volcano has had large eruptions prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

The following references are the sources used for data regarding this volcano. References are linked directly to our volcano data file. 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.

The La Negrillar cone and lava flow complex (also known as Aguas Perdidas) covers a roughly 16 km area along the SW margin of the Atacama basin and was interpreted to be of Holocene age by de Silva and Francis (1991). Gardeweg (1993, pers. comm.), however, did not consider La Negrillar to be of Holocene age, and de Silva (2007 pers. comm.) noted that it was not as youthful looking as the other El Negrillar complex to the north, although it did show leveed lava flows and pristine craters. This basaltic-andesite volcanic field, distinct from El Negrillar (north of Socompa), lies WSW of Socompa volcano between the Sierra San Juan and Sierra Almeida.
