    Brazil lower house okays increase in most mining royalties

    Brazil's lower house of Congress on Wednesday approved a bill that would boost royalty rates on iron ore by 75 percent instead of doubling the rates as had been proposed. Under the revised plan, gold mining royalties would rise 50 percent but potassium mining royalties would be slashed. The full Congress now faces a deadline of Nov. 28 to pass President Michel Temer's planned overhaul of mining policies.

    Brazil resumes murder trial in Samarco mining disaster

    A court in Brazil decided on Monday to resume criminal proceedings, including consideration of murder charges, related to the 2015 Samarco mine disaster, throwing out a challenge from two defendants claiming that evidence was illegally collected. Vale SA and BHP Billiton Ltd, joint owners of the Samarco iron mine, are part of a group that includes 22 people and two other companies that stand accused of crimes related to a tailing dam that burst. The judge ruled certain material based on transcripts of corporate emails and chats to be invalid but that it did not impact the validity of telephone surveillance and other evidence, federal prosecutors said in a statement.
