Following the tragic accident on Friday afternoon at Vale’s Feijão iron ore mine at Brumadinho, Minas Gerais, the entire Harvest Minerals team in Brazil and UK send our sincere condolences to the relatives of the missing and deceased at this terrible time.
In response to queries from shareholders, Harvest does not produce any waste material and therefore does not require any tailings disposal. This incident is therefore also unlikely to impact our application for a full mining license.
The Company takes the Health and Safety of all our staff exceptionally seriously and since the project started on 7th January, 2016, we have had zero Loss time injuries and have been operating for 1,115 days without any accidents.
Harvest’s Executive Director, Luis Azevedo, issued the following statement on Friday in his role as President of the Associação Brasileira de Empresas de Pesquisa Mineral (ABPM): “Faced with the tragic accident at the start of today in Brumadinho at the Vale Mine in Minas Gerais, I present on behalf of ABPM our most sincere solidarity with the relatives of the victims of this serious accident. I also present to Vale, its directors and employees, our solidarity.”
