ROBLES BERUMEN, Ruth  e  FOLADORI, Guillermo. A Historical Review of Mining Automation in Mexico. Prob. Des [online]. 2019, vol.50, n.197, pp.157-180.  Epub 18-Out-2019. ISSN 0301-7036.

The increase of mining in certain historical periods can be attributed to the incidence of various factors, such as the price of metals, technological development, and economic and environmental policies. This paper reviews the most important periods of mining development in Mexico, examining in depth the most recent period: the implementation of automation. The majority of social analyses related to mining have focused on the concept of neo-extractivism and have emphasized economic policies and prices. This paper's contribution is a review of the data of the revolution in the mining sector's productive forces. This is an aspect that may be as important as metal prices and the sector's economic policies when seeking to understand the current situation.

Palavras-chave : mining; automation; gold and silver exploitation; technological development; translational companies; foreign investment.
