Passage

“Al-Zawawi also said ‘This sultan Musa told me that at a town called ZKRY he has a copper mine from which ingots are brought to BYTY. There is nothing in my kingdom, Musa said, on which a duty is levied except this crude copper, which is brought in. Duty is collected on this and on nothing else. We send it to the land of the pagan Sudan and sell it for two-thirds of its weight in gold, so that we sell 100 measures of this copper for measures of gold.’ He also stated that there are pagan nations in his kingdom from whom he does no collect the tribute (jizya) but whom he simply employs in extracting the gold from its deposits. The gold is extracted by digging pits about a man՚s height in depth and the gold is found embedded in the sides of the pits or sometimes collected at the bottom of them.”
