Emergency plan of the Capitão do Mato dam in Nova Lima is escalated to level 2. There are no people residing in the Self-Rescue Zone
Vale informed that it activated the Level 2 of the Emergency Action Plan for Mining Dams (PAEBM) of the Sul Inferior Dam, of the Gongo Soco Mine, in Barão of Cocais (MG). Due to the heavy rains in the region, there was erosion in the inner part of the structure's reservoir, which nonetheless remains stable.
Once again, traffic is driving along the dam crest, electricity generation is running full-steam ahead, and lake Forggensee is filled with water. After a total construction time of only 16 months, during which all participants worked at maximum capacity, remediation of the Forggensee reservoir dam in Rosshaupten was successfully completed in July 2019. After completion of the new street along the dam crest (including walking and biking paths) and other construction projects, the Rosshaupten reservoir dam was re-opened on September 12 during a festive ceremony.
Vale informs that the National Mining Agency (Agência Nacional de Mineração - ANM) authorized the partial resumption of the dry processing operations at the Vargem Grande Complex.
