The mining sector is often involved in disputes regarding the use of the land where its facilities are located. One of these potential areas of conflict is the presence of mining activities in regions with rural settlements regulated by the National Institute for Colonization and Agrarian Reform (Incra). So much so that, in December 2021, the agency published Normative Instruction 112/2021, through which it sought to regulate the administrative procedures for the use of these areas.
However, the text still leaves room for improvement – in points such as financial charges, the applicability of the standard and the relevance of the Public Utility Decree for mining activities. In order to contribute to the discussion of the topic, William Freire Advogados prepared an analysis with its initial reflections on the impact of Incra’s Normative Instruction on the mining sector. The document, prepared by the office’s land area coordinator, Ana Maria Damasceno, and partner Tiago de Mattos, can be accessed here.
In addition to this study, the William Freire Advogados website provides interested parties with a series of analyzes on mining law, including the impact of the activity on indigenous lands and an annotated version of the Mining Code.
