Mining is closer than you think.

Whether in the construction of houses, in products used in the health area, in new technologies, in the manufacture of cars or even home appliances. Ore is present in solutions that transform people's lives for the better, contributing to the evolution of society.

In addition to mining, we take care of our production chain, investing in logistics and energy to ensure that our operations are efficient. 

In order to meet the global demand for ore, our operations, research laboratories, projects and offices are spread throughout the five continents.
