LONDON – Brazil can boast a variety of mineral deposits, such as coal, gold, iron ore, copper, zinc, and more. There were around 11,150 tonnes of copper reserves in the country in late 2013, and more than 9 million tonnes of nickel reserves in early 2015. Para, Bahia and Goias possess the largest reserves of base metals.

Copper mine production almost reached the 311,700 tonnes mark in this country in 2014, while local nickel mine production was slightly over 118,000 tonnes in the same year.

Expansion of existing projects and commencement of the new ones emerge to be major factors driving growth of the copper production.

Upcoming nickel projects, in their turn, are expected to encourage growth of nickel production in Brazil.

The local mining industry is under control of such bodies as MCT, CPRM, MME and DNPM.

Major local producers include: Yamana Gold, Mirabela Nickel, Vale S.A., and more.
