Rio de Janeiro, November 22, 2021 – Vale S.A. ("Vale" or "Company") informs shareholders and the market that Vale’s Board of Directors, today, has received a letter from the director Mr José Maurício Pereira Coelho informing his resignation to the position of member of the Board of Directors.

 

The Company clarifies that, given the resignation mentioned above, the Board of Directors will meet in the coming days to evaluate, under art. 11, §9 of the Bylaws, the nomination of a substitute to fill a vacancy until the next General Meeting of Shareholders.
