The site is comprised of lthic implements of different use, size and formats, including volcanic rock, basalt, obsidian, and shell. Implements are described in 16 typologies by use, in a tachymeter system of 30 squared shapes. 2000 items are currently kept in the Archaeology Department of the Museum of Natural History in Santiago, Chile.
