Note: The references below state that the Toro Mine is a locality for atacamite. Panczner and Boletín 40 say specifically it is in the district. In my research, I have found no Toro Mine in Baja California Sur mentioned elsewhere, but I have found an El Toro Mine (copper mine) about 20 km north of Bahía de los Ángeles, Baja California. I am curious if this may be the actual locality. (WW Besse, July 2017)
