Environment & Wildlife Preservation

The Maracás Menchen Mine owns the San Conrado legal reserve, where native species are preserved on over 2 thousand hectares of native forest. Wild animals found in the project area are captured and released onto the reserve. A native plant greenhouse, with the capacity to produce 20 thousand trees is also being cultivated to reforest the surrounding area.

Largo’s environmental sustainability policy seeks to preserve the region's natural resources and monitor the quality of soil, water, air and the protection of Flora and Fauna. In the first years of operation, over 1 million Real (BRL) has been invested in environmental projects in the Jiquiriçá Valley in which it operates.
