Mining giant Vale has awarded an SNC-Lavalin consortium an engineering services contract for its multibillion-dollar iron ore processing project in Brazil.

The SNC-Lavalin and WorleyParsons consortium will implement Vale's S11D project on a "cost reimbursable" basis. No value for the contract was disclosed.

The project is a 90-million-tonne per year iron ore processing facility nearly 2,000 kilometres north of Sao Paulo in one of the world's richest ore bodies.
