Juan Godoy was a Chilean prospector and woodcutter who in 1832 discovered an outcrop (reventón) of silver 50 km south of Copiapó in Chañarcillo.[1] This event sparkled the Chilean silver rush.[1] He successfully claimed the discovered outcrop in his name and the name of José Godoy and Manuel Gallo.[1] The finding attracted thousands of people to the place and generated significant wealth.[2]

According to folklore Godoy was guided to the riches of Chañarcillo by an alicanto.[3]

The mineral juangodoyite (Na2Cu(CO3)2) was named after him in 2005.[4]
