Iron Ore Mining in Brazil to 2021 - Production Remains Buoyant Supported by New Projects

Iron Ore Mining in Brazil to 2021 - Production Remains Buoyant Supported by New Projects

Summary

Brazil ranked third after Australia and Russia with 23 billion tonnes (bnt) of iron ore reserves as of January 2017, accounting for 13.3% of global reserves. The country holds high-grade reserves in the state of Para, with most of the country’s operational mines located in Minas Gerais. In terms of iron ore production, Brazil ranked second globally after Australia, accounting for 429.1 million tonnes (mt) in 2016. Production is projected to reach 511.6 mt due to the expansion of existing mines and upcoming projects.

Key Highlights include in this report -

  • Projects that are due to commence over the forecast period include, Vale SA’s Apolo Mine in Minas Gerais, the Pedra de Ferro Project of Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation Plc in Bahia, Vale SA’s Serra Leste Project in Para, Honbridge Holdings Ltd’s SAM Iron Ore Project in Rio Grande do Sul, and the Jambreiro Project in Minas Gerais.
  • Iron ore mined in Brazil is mostly exported to countries such as China, Japan, the Netherlands, South Korea, Germany, France, and Oman.
  • The Brazilian iron ore industry is dominated by Vale SA, the world’s largest producer.
  • The mining industry is governed by the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) and the Geological Survey of Brazil (CPRM).
  • The Mining Code of 1967 regulates all exploration and extraction activities. The code specifies deposits and mines, sets regulations for authorization, concession, licensing, and permits, and details the duties of holders of mining rights and regulating authorities.
