 BHP Billiton and Vale Sa commit funds to Samarco

BHP Billiton and Vale Sa commit funds to Samarco

Miners BHP Billiton and Vale have approved $181m to fund remediation and compensation programmes at the Samarco iron ore mine in Brazil.

The two firms have also each extended credit lines of $115m to Samarco, where a dam collapse in 2015 caused a deadly mudslide and polluted a river.

BHP said the funding would be offset against a $1.2bn provision it agreed to in June.

In October, the company said it hoped to have contained the waste that spewed from the mine by the end of 2016.
