A Court Orders Vale to Suspend Operations at its Onca Puma Mine

On 14 August, 2015, a regional court in the state of Para ordered Vale to suspend operations at its Onca Puma mine, located in southeast Para, until it provides proper compensation to local indigenous communities. The regional prosecutors claim that the nickel mining operations have polluted rivers with heavy metals, affecting the health of three villages inhabited by the Xikrin indigenous peoples. In addition, the court ordered Vale to pay BRL 1 million (USD 300,000) a month to each of the villages until remedial action is taken. Vale has appealed the decision, noting that the mining operations had been duly authorised by Semas, the environment protection secretariat of the state of Para. It added that "all requirements and procedures demanded by Semas had been fulfilled prior to securing the mining license". The project has faced resistance from the Xikrin since 2012, with sympathetic prosecutors from the state of Para demanding the suspension of Onca Puma, which accounts for about 9% of Vale's total nickel production on the grounds that Vale had failed its commitment to protect the local indigenous communities.

Vale Gets Green Light for Voisey's Bay Underground Mine

Vale SA has received the green light for an underground mine at Voisey's Bay in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The province's natural resources ministry said that Vale had met the terms of the Voisey's Bay development agreement amended in 2013 to move the mine underground from open-pit. The mine will have a production capacity of approximately 40,000 tpy of nickel. The underground mine will include the Reid Brook and Eastern Deeps nickel deposits in northern Labrador, adjacent to the current open-pit mine. Its development will provide hundreds of construction jobs and, once in operation, will employ an estimated 850 workers, up from 450 currently. Ore production will start in 2020 and is expected to continue past 2035. Procurement planning will start immediately, with initial construction scheduled to begin in 2016.
