Summary: A detailed description of the workings of the Tolima Mining Company at the end of the nineteenth century.
Historical Notes: Even if the coffee industry came to dominate the Colombian economy since the nineteenth century, other activities also occupied a share in the country's exports. One such economic activity was the mining industry that had its history in the colonial period. Thus, when the coffee exports decreased in the early twentieth century, Colombian governments relied on cotton cultivation, cattle raising, and mining to attenuate the export deficit. (See for example, David Bushnell, The Making of Modern Colombia: A Nation in Spite of Itself. Berkeley: University of California Press, 1993, p. 169.)
