Pasto Bueno "mine" is a misnomer. Actually it is a mining district that includes the Huayllapon mine, Huaura Mine and Consuzo Mine. In some texts, Mundo Nuevo mine, Compaccha mine, Tamboras mine, La Victoria mine, Huaccara mine are also included. Additionally, select dealers have 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.
