Outlook of the mining sector in Brazil

At present, Brazil is the most important emerging economy of Latin America. Its economic force has its origin in the distribution of agricultural and mining products and in the last years, exports have expanded substantially. In mining, it is among the top six countries worldwide thanks to its rich natural resources; extracting approximately 50 different minerals according to the Departamento Nacional de Producción Mineral (National Department of Mineral Production, DNPM), among these, niobium (first producer of the world with 92 % of the total production), iron, gold and copper.

In 2010, the fourth Plan Nacional de Minería (National Mining Plan) for the development of the sector in Brazil was published, being the first plan for a period of this length with a prospect of 20 years ahead. This plan focuses on three core ideas: mining in behalf of the national interest, environmental sustainability and added value by investing every year in new technologies. During the plan’s validity, the Brazilian mining sector is expected to grow five times with public and private investment of approximately 350.000 million dollars dedicated fundamentally to mining sector research, as well as the exploitation of new sites, mineral transformations and infrastructural and logistical constructions.

Additionally, not only in Brazil, but also in the rest of Latin America, a conversion process from f open-pit to underground mining is going on, with the aim of minimizing the environmental impact and increasing sustainability. Therefore, during the last years, mining operators have purchased modern equipment to increase safety and productivity of underground exploitations. Putzmeister equipment is used in the most important mining projects of the country, like the Caraiba mine in the state Bahía, where the concrete spraying system Putzmeister SPM 4210 Wetkret realizes ground support works with shotcrete.
