MAXAM Foundation - House of the Explosive - Documentary library

The MUMI boasts an important documentary library stored by the MAXAM Foundation at its facilities.

The MAXAM Library contains more than six hundred volumes, many of them first editions dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, on the different aspects of chemical science and its applications in the explosives industry. You can view the titles it contains by selecting Museum of Mining and Industry in the search engine of the Catalogue of the Network of Libraries in Asturias.1

Other documentation available for specialists and researchers are the minute books of the General Meetings of Shareholders and Boards of Directors from 1872 (the foundation year of the Sociedad Anónima Española de la Pólvora Dinamita. Privilegios Alfred Nobel) to 1970 (the date on which UEE merged with Compañía Española de Minas Río Tinto, giving rise to ERT, Explosivos Río Tinto), as well as photographic archives and old industrial plans of the La Manjoya factory.
