TAXCO, OLD MINING TOWN.
MSc. Rodrigo Espino Hernández.

PART 7

IN THE ARCHIVE OF SANTA PRISCA, 
ARE FOUND EVIDENCE IN THE BAPTISMAL INSCRIPTIONS 
OF THE EXISTENCE OF A BIG POPULATION OF BLACK ORIGEN,

ALTHOUGH THEY WERE NOT SLAVES AS SUCH.

THE CENTURY XVBII WAS DISTINGUISHED 
BY THE EXPORATORY CHARACTER OF THE MINING ACTIVITY
IN THE TAXCO REGION WITH A LOW PRODUCTION 
AND EVEN WITH VERY CRITICAL PERIODS.

NOTHELESS, THE INITIAL NUCLEI OF POPULATION 
DID NOT DISAPPEAR, SE AFERRARON, AND MANAGED 
TO SUBSIST UNTIL THE GREAT BONANZA OF THE CENTURY XVIII.

THE MINING WORK OF JOSE DE LA BORDA
WHO ARRIVED IN THE ZONE OF TAXCO IN 1716, 
AT THE AGE OF 17 YEARS, 
WAS THE PREDULE TO A FUTURE BONANZA.

AFTER SOME TIME DEDICATED TO THE LABOR OF SMALL MINES
INHERITED FROM HIS BROTHER FRANCISCO, WHO DIED IN 1744,
DON JOSE DISCOVERED THE VEIN OF “SAN IGNACIO” 
LOCATED IN THE MINE “LAJUELA” FROM WHICH HE OBTAINED 
GREAT RICHES THAT PERMITTED HIM TO CONSTRUCT 
THE MONUMENTAL PARROQUIA OF SANTA PRISCA AND SANSEBASTIAN,
THAT WAS INITIATED WITH THE PERMISSION GRANTED 
BY THE ECCLESIATICAL AUTHORITIES IN FEBRUARY OF 1751, 
TO BE TOTALLY CONCLUDED IN 1759.
