LOPERA MESA, Gloria Patricia. "The top of the hill is for small miners". On the validity of the special regime for Marmato mining and its influence on the construction of territoriality. Rev. Derecho Estado [online]. 2015, n.35, pp.101-150. ISSN 0122-9893.

This article examines the circumstances that led to the issuance of a special regime for Marmato mines in the mid-twentieth century, which reserves the top of the hill for the small-scale Mining exploitation. It also explores the validity of these rules and how they have influenced the social construction of territoriality and a way of life developed around the traditional practice of small mining.

Keywords : Mining legislation; Marmato; small-scale mining; territoriality; social and environmental conflict.
