Discussions have been held with Para's Federal University to look at options regarding the uses of slag product from Araguaia laongside talks with the local communities on socio-economic aspects of the project and water management.

“By drawing on the experience and talent of our team, we are implementing quality procedures during this development stage of the project to provide a strong operational platform as we move towards the construction stage.
