Upstream dams ban: further supply disruptions expected in Brazil

Report summary

On 15 February 2019, Brazil's National Mining Agency (ANM) released a new regulation establishing the ban of all dams in the country built with the upstream method. Companies holding such structures will have six months to present a technical decommissioning project and until 15 August 2021 and 15 August 2023 to fully conclude deactivation processes of inactive and active dams, respectively. Our analysis indicates that, excluding Vale, close to 8 million tonnes of seaborne supply is at risk in 2019 with the new decree.
