Within the summit of one of the plateau’s tepuys a new fluvial cave of imposing dimensions was discovered in 2002 and it was named “Cueva Charles Brewer“ in honour of its discoverer. It is extremely difficult to access. It rises from the forest in the southeastern region of Venezuela. This cave of 23.4 kilometers in length and 110m deep, was explored later, during two expeditions that took place in 2004 and afterwards by eight more, and is worthy of attention first of all because, in spite of being developed in quartzite (silicarenite), this cave has spaces and domes whose volumes exceed hundreds of thousands of cubic meters. A classic cave that is simultaneously so voluminous and well developed to the absolute perfection such as this, has never before been found in quartzite; one reason is because it constitutes a totally new phenomenon, as well as the unusual speleothems that we named biospeleothems that were observed inside the cave.
