Brazil Mining Equipment
Brazil is a country rich in mineral resource. Mineral and mining industry is very important to Brazil economy development. In Brazil mineral processing and mining process, there are great needs of mining equipment. Additional, road building is very popular in Brazil, which needs great number of construction aggregates, to produce these aggregates, mining equipment is necessary for Brazil.
Brazil is the third largest country in the Americas after the USA and Canada, and has the world’s ninth largest. Brazil has demonstrated reserves of several important commodities such as bauxite (2 800 Mt), Kaolin (1 700 Mt), iron ore (19 000 Mt), niobium (4.5 Mt Nb2O5) and nickel (6 Mt).
Brazil is also a major producer of several other key commodities such as gold, coal and phosphates. Types of ore process operation products provided almost 2% to Brazil’s GDP. Iron ore is the most important of Brazil’s mineral exports, generating annual revenue of around $ 2.3 billion. Brazil is also the world’s largest exporter of niobium, tin, lithium, tantalum and gemstones. Bauxite, gold, manganese, among other primary mineral products, also contributes positively to mineral export revenues. The devaluation of the Brazilian Real (as much as 17%) against the US Dollar boosted the country’s mineral export earnings, with the iron ore market benefiting the most. Iron ore exports account for 6% of the country’s total export revenues.
The minerals sector employs about 4% of the total workforce (approximately 650 000) of Brazil. This excludes the estimated 1 million “garimpeiros” or artisinal miners active in Brazil. Job losses continue to occur as a result of privatisation and joint venture activities.
A wide range of geological environments are encountered in the country, with nearly half of the country covered by younger sedimentary successions, which cover extensive Precambrian terranes, some of which is Archaean in age. The younger cover successions are responsible for deposits of coal (Paraná basin), evaporites associated with gypsum, phosphorite and barite and uranium in continental sediments (Paraná and Parnaíba basins.
