The first known license for the exploitation of the mine of Regoufe dates back to 1922 and was granted to the French and British citizens. In 1941, the Company of Portuguese Mines is formed, and it acquired the license, being exclusively of British capital.

This company will be responsible for huge improvements, such as opening of the road, the introduction of electric light and telephone (Vilar, 1998).
