Vale to resume operations at Brucutu mine

2019-04-17 11:42:38  【Print】
On April 16, Vale SA announced that it expects to resume operations at the Brucutu mine within 72 hours.

Brucutu mine was shuttered in early February by request of Minas Gerais state prosecutors after a tailings dam burst in late January in the town of Brumadinho, killing hundreds of people.

Earlier on Tuesday, a Brazilian court had overturned an injunction that prevented Vale from reopening the mine even after authorization was given by the state of Minas Gerais in early March.

Vale expects its iron ore and pellet sales this year to only reach the mid-range of earlier guidance, between 307 million tonnes and 332 million tonnes, after strong rains in northeastern Brazil affected some of its exports.
