"Pachapaqui Mine" is a common misnomer - actually a mining district including many individual mines. More specific locality designation is frequently impossible. The detailed account of the district by Bodenlos and Ericksen (U.S.G.S. Geol Survey Bull. 1017) indicates that the Tetrahedrite crystals are found only in the Santa Benita Prospect, 5 kilometres northeast of Pachapaqui town.
