Report summary

Tamandua is mid sized surface mine and part of Vale's Vargem Grande complex ultimately falling under Vale's Southern System operations. The mine is located in Brazil's Quadrilátero Ferrífero (QF) region and is approximately 19 kilometres south of the city of Belo Horizonte. The deposit is approximately 0.4 kilometres wide and 1.8 kilometres long.Since Vale does not own 100% of the MRS railway as they do most of their other logistics routes they must pay market rates for transportation. As a result Tamandua's transport cost is one of the company's highest.
