Lower commodity prices and a wobbling local investment climate have hit mining activity in Brazil, leading to asset write-downs, the closure of less-profitable operations and falling export revenues despite strong output. Many projects have been delayed and placed under review. A lack of progress on initiatives to reform Brazil's mining legal framework continues to worry the industry, but with the economy mired in recession and the president's approval rating at just 8%, general business confidence is also at an all-time low. But while expected mining investment of US$53.6 billion in 2014-18 is the lowest since 2009, it is still more than is forecasted in any other Latin American country, highlighting the opportunity that remains.
