Abstract

La mina de plata de Guadalcanal (Sevilla) es una de las principales minas históricas españolas. Su riqueza hizo pensar que este yacimiento era el Potosí español, por eso, en 1555, el Estado se hizo cargo del mismo. Por ella pasaron importantes personajes, tales como Francisco Mendoza, Antonio Boteller, Juanelo Turriano, Jerónimo de Ayanz, los Fúcares, Lieberto Wolters, María Teresa Herbert, Thomas Sutton, Louis Le Camus, Guillermo Bowles, Cristóbal Störr, Juan Martín Hoppensak, Zacarías Helms, Fausto Elhuyar, Francisco de la Garza, el Marqués de la Remisa, Duncan Saw, etc. Este trabajo es una síntesis histórica de las minas. En ella podemos ver las innovaciones y la evolución de las técnicas productivas. ---------- ABSTRACT---------- The silver mine of Guadalcanal (Seville) has historically been one of the most important mines in Spain. The enormous wealth of the mine led to it being known as the “Spanish Potosi”, after the fabled silver mines of the town of Potosi, in Bolivia, and was the reason why it was taken over by the State in 1555. Many prominent people have been associated with it over the ages, including Francisco Mendoza, Antonio Boteller, Juanelo Turriano, Jerónimo de Ayanz, the Fúcares, Lieberto Wolters, María Teresa Herbert, Thomas Sutton, Louis Le Camus, William Bowles, Cristóbal Störr, Juan Martín Hoppensak, Zacarías Helms, Fausto Elhuyar, Francisco de la Garza, the Marquis of Remisa, and Duncan Saw, among others. This paper provides a historical summary of the mines, and examines the evolution of the mining production techniques and innovations.
