Pasto Bueno "mine" is a misnomer. It is, in fact, a mining district that includes the Huayllapon mine, the Huaura Mine, and the Consuzo Mine. In some texts, the Mundo Nuevo mine, the Compaccha mine, the Tamboras mine, the La Victoria mine, and the Huaccara mine are also included. Additionally, select dealers have offered and continue to offer various specimens labeled as coming from "Cantera Quesgar" (the correct name is Cerro Quesgar - http://www.mindat.org/loc-219701.html; it is a mountain where native people search for quartz with sericite, not fuchsite; comment by Cosme Perez). The Majistral mine is next to Pasto Bueno, but it has been operated for copper, not tungsten. Exact identification of specimen provenance is usually not possible.
