Vale S.A. Announces Decision of United States District Court of the Southern District of New York of Dismissal of Complaint Filed Against it by Rio Tinto plc

Vale S.A. informs that it received last November 20, 2015 of the decision of the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York of the dismissal of a complaint filed against it by Rio Tinto plc under the United States Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organizations Act(RICO) alleging violations of the U.S. Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) in relation to Rio Tinto's loss of certain Simandou mining rights, the Government of Guinea's assignment of those rights to BSGR, and Vale's subsequent investment in VBG. In 2014, the Government of Guinea determined that BSGR had obtained its rights in 2008 through bribery of Guinean government officials, and withdrew the concession from the joint venture, explicitly finding that Vale had played no part in BSGR's actions. On April 30, 2014, Rio Tinto then sued both Vale and BSGR claiming, despite the Government of Guinea's clear findings to the contrary, that Vale had been somehow involved in BSGR's corrupt actions. The US Court found that Rio Tinto's complaint was barred by RICO's four year statute of limitations, since Rio Tinto knew about its alleged injury in December 2008. The District Court also found that apart from the statute of limitations, Rio Tinto had failed to plead critical required elements of a civil RICO claim. Specifically, Rio Tinto had failed to plead a pattern of illegal activities by Vale or a conspiracy to violate RICO. Based on these determinations he dismissed the RICO claims with prejudice and all other claims for lack of jurisdiction in the U.S. Federal courts. Vale has been firm from the beginning in believing that Rio Tinto's claims had no merit. Vale is pleased that the U.S. court saw that Rio Tinto's allegations were baseless and dismissed Rio Tinto's lawsuit.

Vale S.A. to Close Manitoba Nickel Smelting and Refining Operations in 2018

Vale S.A. said that it will close its nickel smelting and refining operations in Thompson, Manitoba in 2018 in response to falling prices, but will continue to mine the metal and ship it to a new facility at Long Harbour in the Newfoundland and Labrador province. Smelting and refining operations were originally scheduled for closure this year, until the company struck an agreement with workers and Canada's environment department to keep them running until as late as 2019.
