Looks like UTM, Southern Hemisphere, West of the Central Meridian of some Zone.  Which Zone is impossible to determine other than knowing what the context of the data represents as all 60 Southern Hemisphere Zones can have the same identical set of coordinates.  If you narrow the Zones down to where there's an area of interest, you have a good clue.

Subject: [Proj] Knowing projection from bounding box values.

If bounding box values are given, then can we determin the projection ?

let say i have following bounding box values:

Bounding Box (Min X, Max X) = 161691.814, 161835.595
Bounding Box (Min Y, Max Y) = 6581562.789, 6581647.802

then, what will be the projection file or EPSG code ?
