Report summaryUrucum is approximately 27 kilometres from the city of Corumba in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. The operation consists of a surface iron ore mine, an underground manganese mine and a processing plant. It is close to Vale's Corumba and MMX's Corumba properties. Production at Urucum commenced in 1994 and it is Vale's only operation that solely produces a lump product. Urucum does not have a seamless mine to port infrastructure solution. Mine production is trucked to a rail loading facility, and then railed to a river port before it is barged to an export terminal in Argentina.
