QUERY: Colonial gold mining, esp. Brazil

Vera S. Candiani's picture

Dear colleagues:

I'm in need of recommendations for readings on two topics relating to gold.

Priority is gold mining in colonial Brazil in particular, but also elsewhere in the Ibero-Americas during the colonial period. It's for a graduate course, mainly. 

Parallel to that, I'd also be grateful for readings on gold coinage and minting in Spanish and Portuguese empires.

English would be great, but I'll take any language.

With gratitude for any leads,

Vera
