With headquarters in Brazil and operations in more than 30 countries, Vale is a truly global company, committed to quality of life and environmental preservation in all of their regions of operation. Their offices, operations, exploration and joint ventures are spread over the five continents.

The Voisey’s Bay Mine and Concentator Site, in Labrador, has been producing ore since 2005. The site also includes vast deposits with potential for future underground operations.

Nickel concentrate produced at Voisey’s Bay is currently shipped to Sudbury and Thompson to be smelted and refined, but processing will eventually shift to Long Harbour.

St. John’s is home to the Vale Newfoundland & Labrador corporate office. Employees in this office focus on matters related to Vale’s operation in Voisey’s Bay and Long Harbour. These two sites produce nickel concentrate and copper concentrate, employing 580 full-time staff and 3,100 contractors.
