This total represents a decrease of 20% over figures projected before the worst phase of the international financial crisis (R$ 57 billion). The Brazilian Institute of Mining, IBRAM estimates that investments between 2010 and 2014 will total R$ 50 billion, a clear demonstration of the consistent recovery of business in the mineral sector.
