The story goes Crixás the first gold mines in Pennsylvania in the early formation of the territorial city limits the conflict between pioneers and Indians, which allows an analysis of the process of territorialization and deterritorialization, whose essence is structured in the effort of understanding the actors social in that locality. Thus, it is clear that the territory of Crixás was established by a ratio of narrow economic interests. Therefore, we note the existence of a territory whose order is expressed by the conceptual idea of the field, organization and management of a particular area, as a warning Manuel Correa de Andrade. Although the state of Goias express a patchwork territorial economic structure had been asserting themselves through the first camp, which since then developed gradually distinct economic profiles from mining. Subsequently embraced by livestock and agriculture, before emptying into the agribusiness, which manages all profiles promoting economic restructuring in the productive sector. In Crixás, mining and livestock are kept as economic activities, but their productivity is enhanced by new relations of production imposed by the progressive industrialization. From this perspective, we can make an analogy between their economic structures from the Cerrado biome that protects "yellow natural" contradictory. The "yellow gold" and "yellow pequi." Both yellow with economic and cultural values. However, the gold no longer has the "brightness of human emancipation." The process of industrialization exerted by the mining Sierra Grande enters its production in the global market. Thus, the "brightness" of gold is reflected in Europe, Japan and other countries, with shares traded on the Johannesburg, New York, Australia and Ghana. Already pequi loses plenty to pasture. Even with the growth of livestock in Crixás party happens this fruit, whose purpose is to demonstrate the richness of the Cerrado and its importance to the culture of his people. To this end, the municipality of Crixás has sustained its economic structure by contradictions and conflicts over land. The circumstances of the research methodology require the primacy of the agrarian and regional studies, making comparative analysis of historical and contemporary. In support of this research, we will adopt a theoretical framework based on dialectical and historical materialism, aiming to address the aggregation of local dynamics in the city of Crixás-Go to mediate our understanding of its role in the economic context Goias.
