Senhor Figuireda told me that he had planted, the year before, one bag of feijao or beans, and three of rice; the former of which produced eighty, and the latter three hundred and twenty fold.
(a]) Vara de Fazenda Publica e Autarquias de Belo Horizonte), on July 9th, 2019, within the scope of the lawsuits 5010709-36.2019.8.13.0024 and 5026408-67.2019.8.13.0024 proposed by the State of Minas Gerais and the lawsuits 5044954-73.2019.8.13.0024 and 5087481-40.2019.8.13.0024 proposed by the State Public Prosecutors of Minas Gerais, which declared Vale responsible for reparation of damages caused by the breach of the tailing dam in Corrego do Feijao, in extension and form to be subsequently defined.
The Wall Street Journal's Samantha Pearson and Luciana Magalhaes report that their investigation reveals that several workers at the Corrego do Feijao mine owned by Vale warned that the dam was about to collapse before it did so in a disaster that killed 270 people, but supervisors "brushed aside concerns." Vale denied that it ignored warning signs or that it was aware the dam was at risk of imminent collapse, stating that it had consulted the world's top engineering experts and trusted an outside audit of the structure in September, the report noted.
"The choice is aligned with the goal of bringing a senior executive to ensure stability to Vale's operations, continuity of the indemnification process, repair and mitigation of the effects of the rupture of Dam I of the Corrego do Feijao mine.
The dam at the Corrego do Feijao mine, operated by Brazil's Vale near the town of Brumadinho, collapsed on January 25, sending a slow-moving tsunami of toxic sludge and mud over parts of the mining site and surrounding areas.
The collapsed dam at Vale SA's Corrego do Feijao mine buried mining facilities and nearby homes in the town of Brumadinho, killing dozens and leaving the community in shock.
The disaster occurred last Friday when a dam near Feijao iron ore mine burst its barrier flooding another dam down below.
Firefighters focused their hopes for finding survivors on a bus, a train, offices and nearby homes that were buried after the dam break at Vale's Corrego do Feijao mine in Minas Gerais state.
The Retiro Baixo dam is 135 miles (220 kilometers) from the site of the Brumadinho dam burst, according to ANA.The Feijao mine is managed by Brazilian mining giant Vale, which said it suffered a "breach," causing mining debris to spill into the mine's administrative area where employees were working.
