La Mina Bambolla is an interesting occurrence! Native tellurium and its secondary minerals occur in the deposit and up until recently, could be collected on the dumps. Here are some examples. They are small native tellurium samples with varying amounts of micro gold and secondary tellurite minerals on them.
