BELO HORIZONTE, BRAZIL, April 20, 2021 – – Brazil Minerals, Inc. (OTC Pink: BMIX) (the “Company” or “Brazil Minerals”), the Strategic Mineral Resources Company for the Green Energy Revolution, is pleased to announce that its iron-focused 60%-owned subsidiary has begun drilling in the subsidiary’s wholly-owned project located in the well-known Iron Quadrangle area of the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil, one of the world’s most prolific areas for iron mining. Samples collected in this mineral property have shown iron concentrations up to 68%, a strong result according to the technical experts involved in the development of this mine. Photos from the site including the initial cores from the first hole are attached to this release.
Marc Fogassa, CEO of the Company, commented, “Brazil exports US$20 billion of iron ore annually. Iron has reached multi-year high prices recently and demand continues unabated. From what is observed from other local miners, a well-defined, simple open pit operation with quality extractable material can be highly profitable.”
This mineral property has preliminary indications of iron mineralization between 7 to 12 million tons. The current drilling campaign is expected to last two to three months and will determine the shape and depth of the open pit for operational licensing.
