The Vale


Vale is a pioneer mining company. We work with passion, discovering and transforming resources into essential ingredients that are part of everyone’s daily lives.

We are present in the five continents, with responsibility and commitment to sustainable development.

We support actions that contribute to the preservation of history and traditional culture of the places where we operate. For two decades, we have helped preserve Praça da Liberdade in Belo Horizonte and, in 2011, we created Memorial Minas Gerais Vale.

Building our future

The values that led Vale to create the Memorial are the same that guide our operations.  We are moved by transformation, innovation and the continuous search for what is new. Memorial Minas Gerais Vale is the result of this belief.

Vale is also very proud to enable the transformation of a historical building into an innovative and technological cultural project that immortalizes the memory of Minas Gerais people.  We believe that by investing in the preservation of our history and culture, we contribute not only to the rescue of our identity, but also to the comprehension of our present and to improve the planning of our future.

Thinking about the future has always allowed Vale to value our history and invest in our culture.  Now, in partnership with the Minas Gerais State Administration, through its Foundation, Vale leaves a permanent legacy to the entire state of Minas Gerais:  Memorial de Minas Gerais Vale
