Brazil's Vale approves 2014 investment budget of $14.8 bln
SAO PAULO Dec 2 (Reuters) - Brazilian iron ore miner Vale SA said on Monday its board approved a 2014 investment budget of $14.8 billion, with 80 percent going to develop new iron ore project and logistics.
The company said in a statement it remained committed to developing its Mozambique coal project and its Salobo copper and gold project.
After reaching a peak of $18 billion in annual investment budgets in 2011, Vale said 2014 marked the third consecutive year of declining investments as it refocuses on its core business of iron ore mining.
