We propose to implement one passive nuclear track detector array of 400 m^2 at the Chacaltaya High Altitude Laboratory (5230 m a.s.l.). The main purposes of the experiment concern the searches for magnetic monopoles of relatively low masses at the Parker bound level, searches for low mass nuclearites and searches for some supersymmetric dark matter candidates (Q-balls).

Nuclear track detectors can record the passage of heavily ionizing particles like ions, magnetic monopoles and nuclearites.

Magnetic monopoles, nuclearites, Q balls: A Qualitative picture

We present qualitative pictures of the structures of magnetic monopoles (MMs), nuclearites (nuggets of strange quark matter, strangelets, surrounded by electrons) and Q-balls (supersymmetric states
