An earthquake measuring 5.5 on the Richter scale struck on Sunday in the Tarapaca region in northern Chile.
The National Seismological Center (CSN) of the University of Chile stated that the epicentre of the quake occurred 24 km from the Collahuasi mine in the region, and at a depth of 106 km.
So far, there have been no reports of material damage or human losses due to the earthquake.
In 2010, a massive 8.8-magnitude earthquake struck central and southern Chile, killing at least 500 people and triggering a tsunami.
Chile is located in an area called the Ring of Fire, a major area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean, where many earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur.
