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.

Over the last 6 years, the environmental responsibility team at the Maracás Menchen Mine partnered with local biologists, authors and organizers to produce The Fauna and Flora of the area of the Vanádio de Maracás book. The Fauna and Flora of the area of Vanadio de Maracás book highlights the importance of the different flora and fauna species surrounding the Maracás Menchen Mine and the subsequent steps we are taking to preserve the wealth and beauty of this area.

Ao longo de 6 anos entre levantamentos e monitoramentos ambientais, foram obtidas informações valiosas sobre a fauna e a flora do entorno da Vanádio de Maracás (VMSA). É com orgulho que a VMSA apresenta o livro “A Fauna e a Flora da área da Vanádio de Maracás”, com a finalidade de valorizar e divulgar a riqueza e beleza desta Caatinga. Agradecemos a contribuição de nossa bióloga, Janete Abrão, além de todos os outros autores, organizadores e fotógrafos que permitiram este projeto se concretizar. Abaixo segue o PDF para download, e conheça mais sobre as espécies da região e admire-se com tamanha beleza!
