Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world with an area of 8.5M sqkm. It is also the fifth country in population with 210 million people (IBGE, 2018) and the world’s eighth economy, with a US$ 2.08T GDP (IMF, 2017).
Brazil, given its continental size and geological framework, is comparable to Canada or Australia with regards exploration and mining potential. However, unlike those, most of the country is still underexplored, what makes Brazil one of the most prospectable and attractive places to look for world class ore deposits.
Brazil, since the 18th century, is one of the most important mining countries in the world, having been for almost a century, the world’s largest gold and diamond producer. Nowadays, Brazil is one of the top five world’s producers of niobium, iron, graphite, bauxite and kaolin. The country is yet an important exporter of tin, nickel, magnesium, manganese, chrome and gold and is fastly turning into an important copper producer as well.
Brazil is considered one of the most secure jurisdictions to invest in the mining industry in the world, having a quite competitive tax regime and a mining code that follows the best practices worldwide. The country also holds a modern and strong industry that may provide most of the materials and equipment required in a mining project.
