    Brazil regulator suspends operations at two Vale mine complexes

    Brazil's mining regulator has ordered Vale SA to suspend activity at its Fabrica and Vargem Grande complexes, the iron ore miner said late on Wednesday, as authorities crack down after last month's fatal dam break. In a statement, Vale said the ANM mining regulator ordered the suspension in light of the possible failure of five dams at the mining sites in the interior state of Minas Gerais. In late January, a tailings dam at Vale's Corrego do Feijao mine failed in the same state, likely killing more than 300 people.

    German firm halts Vale dam certifications after disaster

    German inspection firm TÜV SÜD said on Tuesday it will no longer certify tailings dams owned by the world's largest iron ore miner Vale SA, after a dam burst in January, killing over 300 people. The firm, which had signed off on Vale's dams in the past, said in a statement there was "heightened uncertainty" over whether the current certifications system is appropriate. Brazilian authorities arrested two TÜV SÜD employees in the wake of the disaster, but freed them soon later.

    BHP CEO staying around to deal with tailings and transformation

    The chief executive of mining group BHP has no plans to quit and will focus on the "nuclear level of safety" needed to avoid any repeat of the Vale dam collapse in Brazil, as well as on transforming his own company. Speculation about the future of CEO Andrew Mackenzie, 62, has swirled since 2017 when activist investor Elliott Advisors began campaigning for change and Ken MacKenzie was appointed as chairman. Asked about how long he planned to stay, Mackenzie, in the role since 2013, said he was not thinking about moving on.

    BHP Can't Rescue Iron-Ore Market After Brazil Dam Disaster

    The global iron ore market has been thrown upside down by the tragedy, after Vale was forced to shutter operations and the Brazilian government said it’s banning certain types of dams used to hold mining waste. While rival producers such as BHP and Rio Tinto Group might be expected to fill the gap, they’ve got little room to respond after focusing in recent years on maximizing profits rather than increasing volumes. BHP is operating its Australian iron ore operations at full strength and doesn’t expect changes as a result of the January incident, Chief Executive Officer Andrew Mackenzie told reporters on a call Tuesday.

    Brazil Bans Upstream Mining Dams After Vale’s Latest Disaster

    All so-called upstream dams need to be decommissioned or removed by August 2021, according to a resolution the National Mining Agency, or ANM, published on Monday in the nation’s official gazette. Vale has said it will spend 5 billion reais ($1.4 billion) to decommission its 10 upstream dams in the next three years. The upstream method is typically the cheapest way for miners to contain ponds of tailings waste, a byproduct of extracting iron ore.

    Brazil bans upstream mining dams after deadly Vale disaster

    Brazil's government on Monday banned new upstream mining dams and ordered the decommissioning of all such dams by 2021, targeting the type of structure that burst last month in the town of Brumadinho, killing hundreds of people. In January, one such dam operated by miner Vale SA, the world's largest iron ore miner, collapsed, unleashing a wave of mud that bulldozed nearby structures and has likely killed more than 300 people. The move by Brazil's mining regulator, which would impact some 50 upstream mining dams in Brazil's mining heartland of Minas Gerais state alone, is the strongest governmental response yet to the disaster.

    [$$] Brazil Probe Finds Vale Auditor, Employees Knew Dam Wasn’t Stable

    SÃO PAULO—Brazilian police arrested eight employees of mining giant Vale SA on suspicion of murder after a judge found evidence suggesting they had known for months about significant safety problems at one of its dams before it burst last month, killing more than 160 people. The dam’s auditors considered falsifying results of a safety inspection out of fear that Vale would cancel or alter another contract between the two companies if they failed to declare the dam safe, according to prosecutors cited by the judge in the arrest warrant. The Vale employees arrested were directly responsible for the mine.

    Seeking assurances from Brazilian miner Vale by phone after a second deadly dam disaster in three years is not enough for Sasja Beslik. Beslik, head of sustainable finance at Swedish bank Nordea, blocked the bank's investment managers from buying any more Vale shares on Jan. 26, the day after a dam filled with mining waste burst its banks, killing hundreds. Vale needs to address the risks associated with tailings dams and deal with its waste material safely if it is to prevent an exodus of global funds and stem the recent share price slide.

    Vale's safety measures have not worked, CEO says as woes grow

    BRASILIA/RIO DE JANEIRO/SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazilian miner Vale's safety procedures have not worked, the company's chief executive said on Thursday, responding to questions from lawmakers after one of the company's dams collapsed last month with the loss of hundreds of lives. "Vale humbly acknowledges that, whatever we have been doing, it has not worked, as a dam has collapsed," CEO Fabio Schvartsman told lawmakers in Brazil's lower house, who are investigating the tragedy. The break of Vale's dam polluted the Paraopeba river and killed at least 166 people, with nearly 200 still missing, according to the latest information from rescue workers.
