Report summary

The Viga mine is located near the town of Congonhas in Minas Gerais state, roughly 80 kilometres south of Belo Horizonte.Ferrous is currently investing in the so-called 'Viga 4+' project which will allow the mine to process low-grade itabirite ores into a high-grade concentrate product as well as save costs by improving efficiency. Phase 1 was completed in mid-2017. Phase 2 has its start-up planned for Q1 2019.All of Viga's production is currently being sold on a FOB mine basis.After the completion of the Viga 4+ project, we expect Viga to transition to a concentrate-only operation with output to be solely sold into the seaborne export market.
