"El estudio de los inicios de la minería en Asturias, a mediados del siglo XIX, ha sido citado con gran profusión por la historiografía general contemporánea y más aún por la económica. Ahora bien, en la mayoría de los casos apenas se ha profundizado con la amplitud que cabía esperar en las primeras compañías mineras, los técnicos, especuladores, capitalistas, notables y elites asturianas que intervinieron en su desarrollo (...).
Aquellos años de nuestra primigenia historia minera se caracterizaron por un sistema organizado de corrupción, en el que estaban implicados los inspectores de minas, los ingenieros, los notables y las élites de los municipios mineros, los escribanos y los empleados mineros con la intención de saltarse la restrictiva legislación minera de la época en materia de registro y denuncios, así como la obligación de ejecutar trabajos legales, pagos de impuestos, etc. Esta corrupción se extendía también a la venta de carbón extranjero como nacional para no pagar los aranceles establecidos."
