One of the world's most captivating places, Brazil is a country of powdery white-sand beaches, verdant rainforests and wild, rhythm-filled metropolises. Brazil's attractions extend from frozen-in-time colonial towns to otherworldly landscapes of red-rock canyons, thundering waterfalls and coral-fringed tropical islands. Then there's Brazil's biodiversity: legendary in scope, its diverse ecosystems boast the greatest collection of plant and animal species found anywhere on earth.



Brazil is one the biggest global players in the mining sector. It is the world’s largest producer of niobium, second largest exporter of iron ore and manganese and among the largest producers of bauxite and tin. Iron ore accounts for 80 per cent of Brazil’s mining exports and provides 30 per cent of global demand


A feature of Brazil’s mining sector is the gradual move towards exploration and operations in the country’s tropical northern states, which are home to the largest high-grade iron ore deposits. In particular, the northern state of Pará represents opportunities for companies with capabilities to operate in tropical, indigenous and remote environments.

Two of the largest mining companies in Brazil are Vale and Anglo American:

  • Vale is one of the biggest producers of iron ore and nickel in the world, and it also produces manganese and copper, among others. 


  • Anglo American is one of the largest mining companies in the world and its Brazil operations are focused on iron ore and nickel.
