Report summary

Sapecado and Galinheiro are two medium sized surface mines whose production is rolled together. They are located approximately 35 kilometres south east of Belo Horizonte Brazil. The mines are part of Vale's Itabirito complex ultimately falling under Vale's Southern System operations. Ore from Sapecado/Galinheiro undergoes a rigorous beneficiation process because of its low raw ore grade and high level of impurities particularly silica. Production from both mines combined is expected drop as Vale switches output to more efficient lower cost operations.
