Vale announces sale of coal assets

Vale informs that, on this date, it has entered into a binding agreement with Vulcan to sell the Moatize coal mine and the Nacala Logistics Corridor for total proceeds of US$ 270 million, comprised of US$ 80 million at Closing and US$ 190 million from the existing business until Closing; plus a 10-year Royalty Agreement subject to certain mine production and coal price conditions.

The Closing of the transaction is subject to the satisfaction of customary conditions precedent, including the approval of the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy of Mozambique pursuant to the Mining Law No. 20/2014, and the approval of the Government of Mozambique pursuant to the Concession Agreements for the change of control and antitrust. Vale is committed to work together with both Mozambique and Malawi governments to ensure a smooth transition to the new operator.

Divestment process

In early 2021, Vale announced its objective to no longer own coal assets, focusing on its core businesses and on its ambition to become a leader in low-carbon mining.?Over the past 15 years, Vale has worked in partnership with Mozambique and Malawi governments in the implementation of the Moatize mine and NLC’s 912-km railway for coal transportation, in addition to the revamp of general cargo operations and passengers transportation. These investments represent a relevant legacy to the countries and are an important driver for local development.?While conducting a responsible search process for an investor in the coal business, Vale continued to support the project’s ramp-up and its commitments to society and stakeholders.

I am pleased to announce this important step for the responsible divestment of Moatize and NLC, in a transaction that benefits the communities and governments where those operations are located and?offering a sustainable future for the operations. This is another accomplishment?on our commitment to reshape our company, focusing on our core businesses, said Eduardo Bartolomeo, Vale CEO.
