    Slow landslide at Vale's Gongo Soco reduces risk to dam

    A closely watched embankment at a Brazilian iron ore mine run by Vale SA has begun to slide slowly into the bottom of a mining pit, the company said on Friday, reducing concerns that a sudden landslide would trigger a dangerous dam collapse. Authorities had initially feared that a landslide at Vale's Gongo Soco mine could destabilize the nearby Sul Superior dam, wreaking havoc on a nearby town. An environmental official for the state of Minas Gerais had previously estimated a 10-15% chance of the Sul Superior dam losing integrity due to tremors from the expected landslide.

    Brazil's Vale says risk of dam break at Gongo Soco mine has diminished

    An unstable embankment at Vale SA's Gongo Soco mining pit in Brazil has a lower risk than previously thought of collapsing in a way that would destabilize the nearby Sul Superior dam, the iron ore miner said in a statement on Tuesday. Last week, an environmental official for the state of Minas Gerais estimated a 10-15% chance of the Sul Superior dam losing integrity due to tremors from the expected landslide in the mining pit.

    Anger mounts at Vale in Brazil town at risk for new dam burst

    It was bad enough for Paulo de Morais when he was expelled in early February from the house where he lived for 22 years, in the shadow of a mining dam at risk of collapse. De Morais was evacuated with about 450 of his neighbors under orders from Brazil's mining agency, which feared a repeat of the catastrophe at Brumadinho 65 kilometers (40 miles) away. A dam collapse there in late January unleashed a wave of toxic mud that buried alive more than 240 Vale SA employees and neighbors.

    Vale warns Brazil prosecutors another dam at risk of collapse

    Brazilian iron ore miner Vale SA told prosecutors in the state of Minas Gerais that a dam is at risk of rupturing at its Gongo Soco mine, about 40 miles from where its Brumadinho dam collapsed, killing more than 230 people. According to a document published on Thursday, prosecutors said Vale is predicting the dam in the city of Barao de Cocais may collapse next week if the current rate of movement in the embankment of the mine pit close to the dam is maintained. Vale said in a late afternoon statement it remained unclear whether the slippage in the embankment would actually trigger a collapse of the nearby Sul Superior dam, but said it was raising its level of alert and readiness for such an extreme case.

    Brazil's Vale swings to loss as dam burst charges near $5 bln

    SANTIAGO/RIO DE JANEIRO, May 9 (Reuters) - Brazil's Vale SA set aside $4.95 billion to pay for costs from the collapse of its Brumadinho tailings dam, driving the world's top iron ore miner deep into the red as it reckoned with the aftermath of one of the country's deadliest industrial disasters. Vale, which swung to a $1.64 billion first-quarter net loss, acknowledged it was still too early to determine all the costs related to the Brumadinho collapse in late January, which unleashed a torrent of toxic mud that killed at least 237 people, most of them buried alive. Prosecutors accusing the company of ignoring warning signs ahead of the disaster pressured it into replacing Fabio Schvartsman as chief executive with company veteran Eduardo Bartolomeo.

The world's largest iron ore exporter shuttered various mines after the dam at Brumadinho collapsed, unleashing a torrent of toxic mud that buried nearby buildings, including a company cafeteria, killing 236 people, with 34 still missing.

    China's iron ore imports in April fell to the lowest level in 18 months as poor weather in Brazil, the country's second-biggest supplier, disrupted shipments and some production by miner Vale SA was halted after a mine accident.
