Activity in Brazil:

In 2008, a Vancouver-based junior mining company is entering into a strategic partnership with a major international steel producer to develop an iron ore port facility in Brazil.

Early this year, Adriana Resources Inc. purchased 771,818 square meters of land on the coast of Brazil for the development of a proposed iron ore port facility.

The company recently announced it has reached an agreement with ArcelorMittal, the world's largest steel producer, to move forward with the construction of a port facility in the state of Rio de Janeiro.
