Our Projects

Our operations

BAMIN is a mining company in operation that is dedicated to the extraction, processing and commercialization of iron ore through integrated processes in which modern methods and the state of art equipment are used.

The Pedra de Ferro Project consists of two large projects: Pedra de Ferro Mine and Porto Sul.

At Pedra de Ferro Mine, BAMIN will sustainably produce and process two types of ores: hematite (1/3) and itabirite (2/3). Hematite has a high iron content (about 65%).

Through Porto Sul, a port terminal with capacity for up to 42 million tons, BAMIN will export its production to international markets. The Porto Sul port complex is being implemented and will be operated by BAMIN, in a partnership with the Government of Bahia. The port can handle vessels with a capacity of up to 220 thousand tons, 330 meters in length and a fully loaded draught of 18.3 meters.

Logistics solutions

The flow of the ore production extracted and processed at the Pedra de Ferro Mine in Caetité has as a logistical solution a mixed system composed of road, rail and sea modes, designed to meet each stage of the project.

Pedra de Ferro has recently started operations with production being loaded on to the FCA railway through the railway terminal of Licínio de Almeida.

When producing at full capacity, the ore will be transported by the West East Integration Railway (FIOL), which is being implemented, and by Porto Sul.

Porto Sul, which is already under construction, is a port complex in which it will be operated by BAMIN, in a partnership with the Government of Bahia.



Iron ore is the mineral substance from which iron can be obtained. Iron is an essential input for the production of steel and that's why it's so present in people's lives.

This indispensable raw material is part of our daily lives and is so connected to the most diverse products, that we are not even aware of its presence. It's at the base of the construction of our houses, in the pipes that bring water to the taps and showers, which also has iron in its manufacture -, in furniture and kitchen utensils. Iron is also found in cars, buses, subways, trains, motorcycles and bicycles that transport us either for work or leisure. Steel is also essential in the area of health, as it is present in hospital equipment such as X-ray devices and surgical instruments and even in prostheses. Iron ore is present in toys and leisure equipment such as skates and skateboards and helps us to keep our bodies healthy in the gym equipment. Iron is also in the beauty industry. Yes, many makeup items use minerals in their compositions and one of them is iron oxide.
