Ó Minas Gerais | My Land Our Landscape #28

Dry Season.
São Gonçalo do Rio Abaixo & Barão de Cocais, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Since the beginning of February, this mine was forbidden from generating wet tailings by Minas Gerais’ State Public Prosecutor, when a high risk of dam erosion was identified. A close by mine, Gongo Soco, that dates from the Brazilian gold rush exploration in the early 1800’s, has been risking collapsing for the past 4 months and overwhelming the historical town of Barão de Cocais and Santa Bárbara.
