PARIS. Action de F100. Serie 2. brown, black. #20000. No 20267. The river Approuague flows through French Guiana, east of Cayenne. Gold-mining in Guyane started around 1855 with findings in this river, and was important by the end of the 19th century. Since then it has never been on a large scale, but continues today by small dredging enterprises, often illegal, similar to neighbouring Brazil. Early date for a share from French Guiana.
