Protecting Biodiversity in Brazil

We operated the Sao Bento Mine in Brazil for 11 years until we closed the mine in early 2007. While operating the mine, we created a 180 hectare environmental preservation area to safeguard and enhance habitat for flora and fauna.

The environmental preservation area included an education centre to share information about the local plant and bird species. More than 50,000 students visited the site, which was awarded Brazil’s Environmental Preservation Award in 2004.
