Report summary

Miguel Burnier is a medium sized iron ore surface mine situated in Brazil's Quadrilátero Ferrífero (QF) region, approximately 85 kilometres south of the city of Belo Horizonte.Miguel Burnier's mining operations were closed at the end of 2015 due to weak iron ore and steel market conditions. Though the mine's processing facilities are still operational handling ore trucked from Varzea do Lopes.Gerdau's original plans for their Miguel Burnier and Varzea do Lopes mines were to achieve 100% self-sufficiency for its nearby steel facility, Ouro Branco. As the project was being realized and additional resources were discovered in those areas, Gerdau started contemplating expansion plans. However,market conditions have forced Gerdau to place its intentions on hold.
