Abstract

This text focuses on a small set of documents housed in the Overseas Historical Archive (Lisbon), relating to the Buarcos coal mine, which have not been, to date, the object of study and dissemination. They comprise cartographic and epistolary documentation produced at the last quarter of the 18th century, when the mining works were directed by the judge of Figueira da Foz and by the Lieutenant Nunes de Figueiredo. Reading these and other documents together, allows us to identify the authorship and production date of the two maps present, although the date of elaboration of the geological profiles remains undetermined, due to
the scarcity of elements.
