Notes:
Originally presented as the author's thesis (master's)--Programa de Pós-Graduação em História da UPF, 2007., 413 p, Blacks were used in several activities of the mining universe, highlighting work in the mines and planting gardens. With the mining crisis at the end of the 18th century there was an expansion to the interior of Mato Grosso province. Existence and use of captive labor seems to have persisted in the region until near the end the 19th century with the abolition of slavery.
