The revival of Jacobina

2005 Aug 29

After six years of closure, Jacobina mine is now being reactivated. After rapid recommissioning, the operation is set to become one of Brazil’s largest low-cost underground mining gold producers.


In the heart of the Serra do Jacobina mountain chain, approximately 340 km northwest of Salvador in the state of Bahia in north eastern Brazil, is the Jacobina mine, owned by Desert Sun Mining Corporation.


Epiroc operated under the trademark “Atlas Copco” prior to January 1, 2018.
