Report summary

Urucum is approximately 27 kilometres from the city of Corumba in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul Brazil. The mine does not have a seamless mine to port infrastructure solution. 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.As Vale prioritises more efficient lower cost assets the company opted for shutting down operations at Urucum in 2016.All of Urucum's lump production was being exported via the seaborne iron ore market.
