Vallourec – Mining Iron Ore Case Study

Vallourec – Mining Iron Ore Case Study

Vallourec operates the Pau Branco Mine just 30km from its neighbouring city, Belo Horizonte in Brazil. The tailings dewatering project has a current capacity of 2 million tonnes per year, that eliminates the use of the tailing dams that represented a high cost and are continuously growing in risk, the longer they stay in operation.

Vallourec assessed its options to rid the operation of a tailings dam and the complication of renewing its licence in future following strict mining laws introduced after the unforgettable Bento Rodrigues dam disaster.
