Buoyed by government and private investment, Brazil’s mining sector is going through a significant transition period. The country, benefiting from a truly green energy matrix, can be a leader in sustainable mineral production. Brazil’s government is well aware of the role mining plays in the country’s economic development. It is supporting the mining industry’s growth in various ways, including the announcement of an investment fund for critical mineral production and the establishment of the National Fertilizer Plan to drive fertilizer self-sufficiency. As global demand for sustainably produced critical minerals booms, the country has all the necessary factors to meet that demand while maintaining its position as a leader in iron ore production.
