At least 60 people have been confirmed dead and an estimated 292 remained missing at Vale SA after a dam storing mine waste at the Corrego de Feijao mine in Brumadinho on Friday.

Edvan Cristi, 23, who lost several friends who worked for the Vale mining company, said the city would suffer tremendously because most young people worked in mining. Authorities have not yet called off the search for bodies although no one has been found alive since Saturday. So far, efforts have been focused on finding bodies closer to the surface and did not involve backhoes.

The mining company said it had also begun safely treating the streets and fields of Brumandinho to prevent the spread of disease as an environmental group told the AP Thursday that it had set out to test the Paraopeba river's levels of toxicity.

"If we had known (what the problem was), maybe this tragedy would have never happened", The ministry's mining secretary Alexandre Vidigal said.
