Mijnbouw Maatschappij "Bwool"

Established in 1897 in Amsterdam (NL) with a capital of 4.7 million Dutch Guilders: 4000 ordinary shares and 1400 Preferred Shares of 500 Guilders.

I know little of this company, so anyone who knows more is invited to share his or her knowledge with me.

The city of Bwool, usually written as Boeol (in the landscape of Boeol), lies at the mouth of the river Boeol where it streams into the Celebes Sea. When I read maps well, it lies at 121,5 degree Northern length and 1 degree Northern breadt on the North Island of Celebes and then in the north-west. It lies about 70 km's West of Palèlèh. The landscape Boeol has 3 districts: Palèlèh, Biaoe and Boenobogoe.
The 1921 consize encyclopedia of Dutch East Indies, mentions on page 91 that in the early years, the population of Boeol was digging for gold in the quarz layers and riverbanks. But ever since the minig company Palèlèh was established there, the population no longer digs for gold.

So, it may very well be that Mijnbouw Maatschappij "Bwool" was in the gold digging business, but I am not sure.
