According to the Mining.com website, the Brazilian mining administration has ordered Vale to partially stop the production of Brucutu iron ore. The mine is the largest iron ore mine in Minas Gerais and the second largest iron ore mine in Vale. The Brazilian Mining Authority (ANM) said that the decision was made to understand that Vale has surpassed the approved mineral reserve boundary in the suspected exploration area. Vale said that the various production conditions proposed by the Brazilian Mining Bureau have been met. In 2017, the report on the economic utilization plan of the authorities was also fully elaborated, and corresponding measures will be taken.
