Abstract

The first important source of platinum to be discovered was in the western part of what is now the Republic of Colombia, then part of the Spanish American colonies and known as New Granada. This article recounts the early history and exploitation of these deposits, which have been worked continuously since the earliest expeditions of the Spanish Conquistadores.
