[Module 2A Group at N4]
Part of the Module 2A Group with CVRD staff above the CVRD Carajas N4 iron mine. The mine was visited to explore the connection between the occurrence of large iron-oxide Cu-Au deposits in one of the world's premier iron ore provinces. This part of the visit involved a geological overview from Sergio Guedes, Manager Geology, supported by a range of plans and drill sections in a glass walled lookout over the pit. This was followed by a tour of the beneficiation plant and then of the town. At the end of the tour, the group was treated to lunch at the 'palatial' company guest house before being taken to the Carajás airport for their departure.
