Developing the next major nickel project in Brazil
Slide 1


Horizonte Minerals works in partnership with rural communities and demonstrates the utmost respect for our local farming families.


Throughout the Araguaia Nickel Project's construction and operation, we will focus our contributions in three pillars in the Conceição do Araguaia Municipal: economic development, social development and care & respect for our community.

Our Economic development pillar includes:
  • Maximising local employment opportunities in our company
  • Developing local suppliers who can provide services to our company and others in the region
  • Developing small & medium enterprises, particularly in the rural area.
Our social development pillar includes:
  • Providing capacity building programmes to the local government where we operate
  • Eventually investing in education/cultural activities once the project moves to operation
Our care & respect pillar includes:
  • Public health programme, including sexual health education
  • Environment education programme
  • Resettlement programme aligned with IFC guidelines
  • Mine Closure plan
  • Engagement and continuous communication

Our innovative socio-economic development strategy, planned for the future mine, aims to diversify the local economy and build strong vibrant communities to ensure sustainable net positive benefits are received by our local stakeholders before, during and after mining has taken place.
