LONDON – Brazil’s mining industry is governed by the Brazil Geological Survey (CPRM) and the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME). The Mining Code of 1967 regulates all mineral exploration and extraction activities in Brazil. The code specifies deposits and mines, and sets rules and regulations for authorisation, concession, licensing and permits, and plans the duties of holders of mining rights and regulating authorities, among others.

An apex body, MME, come into being in 1960, and since then it has been busy with formulating and administrating regulations with respect to the resources of mining and energy industries. The CPRM is known as a federal government organisation under the jurisdiction of MME. It was formed in 1969 and became an entirely state-owned institution in 1994.
