Gain an understanding of the copper and nickel mining industry in Brazil, copper and nickel (base metals) reserves, historic and forecast data on copper and nickel mine production, consumption and trade, demand drivers, active, exploration and development base metals projects, the competitive landscape and the country's fiscal regime.

Key Highlights

  • In 2014, the country’s copper mine production was an estimated 311,685t while nickel mine production was estimated at 118,034t.
  • The increase in copper mine production can be attributed to the commencement of upcoming projects such as the Antas North mine during the first quarter of 2016 and the expansion of existing ones such as the Salobo mine. Nickel mine production on the other hand is expected to gain support from upcoming nickel projects such as the Vermelho mine and the Morro Sem Bone project.
  • The mining industry is governed by bodies such as the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME), National Department of Mineral Production (DNPM), Brazil Geological Survey (CPRM) and Ministry of Science and Technology (MCT).
