Located 2 km south of Caleta Chanabaya.
Guano was extensively mined in the promontory till the mid 19th century.

"I have visited Pabellon de Pica several times and found and discovered the unique copper mineralization up there. Younger Guano deposits like Pabellon de Pica are a very strange environmental zone with a highly unique microbiology. This microbiological life produces a lot of unique Nitrogen components. It is a normal process when such components later go into a part of the mineralization. The Pabellon de Pica is, for now, the only known contact zone of a copper deposit and a young sub-maritime Guano deposit. There is no anthropogenic influence to form the rare copper minerals. Chanabayaite is a good example because the best specimen we collected was on rock samples we took out of a 1-meter deep zone in the steep wall. Minerals like Shilovite and Ammineite form in a massive Halite vein. During the mining process of guano, the local miners never used any explosive, because the base rock is already cracked by the powdery Guano itself."
(Gunnar Färber, http://www.mindat.org/mesg-14-333383.html)
