The Northwest Africa 869 (NWA 869) strewn field, was first found in 2000 near Tindouf in Algeria.
The regolith breccia meteorites are classified as ordinary chondrites (L4-6). The chemistry of the NWA 869 meteorite shows that it contains carbonaceous inclusions and small flecks of meteoritic metal - iron and nickel.
At least 2 metric tons of specimens, that  range from less than 1 gram in mass to greater than 20 kilograms, have been found at the strewn field.

Latitude   27°45'0.00"N, Longitude    8° 7'60.00"W
