Vale announced that its subsidiary Mineracao Rio do Norte had been granted the Stability Condition Declarations of all its operational structures in March 2019, considering the new auditing parameters and following the new guidelines from authorities, primarily the ones given by the National Mining Agency. MRN is also in accordance with the Resolution 70.389/17, Decision ANM 4 of February 15th 2019, and with the items related to dams of the Regulatory Norm No 22 - Safety and Occupational Health in Mining.

In June 2019,11 structures located in Oriximina were reclassified as greater potential damage. Immediately after the reclassification, on June 26th 2019. the company was fined RS50.464,80 for not having submitted the Emergency Action Plan for Mining Dams of the related structures. Considering the time demanded to build the plans, MRN will dispute the fine, requesting an extended deadline to submit the plans that are ongoing.
