"The present report, relative to the studies on the value of Cochasayhuas and descriptive of what was discovered and worked by me in that mining district, is written in fulfilment [sic] the commission which was entrusted to me at the begining [sic] of the month of April last. Special circumstances give to the studies made and conclusions formed a certain and appreciable value. There already existing in the Company's works various crushing machines and small tanks for cyaniding, I was able to see in great part the results of my tests with the metal in the chemical laboratory, in the actual work of grinding and valueing [sic], taking advantage of the results obtained and observing the defects in the existing system. It is tanks to this that I can now present a study with definite conclusions that display results obtained in the actual work, and from which the present methods can be improved, establishing a system more in harmony with modern practice and the exigencies of the mineral of Cochasayhuas" – Introduction, leaf 3.
