By Friday, the company said it was expanding its financial assistance to residents "who lived or carried out any rural or commercial activities in the Self-Saving Zone (ZAS) of the Emergency Action Plan for Mining Dams (PAEBM)". A state regulator said it was likely that liquefaction (when a solid loses its strength and behaves like a liquid) was the cause of the disaster.
An internal study showed the miner knew as recently as previous year that some of the areas hit were at risk if its tailings dam burst, according to a report by Folha de S.Paulo newspaper.
The most recent victims were found in a changing room that was buried by more than 20 metres of mud. The company has said the mud flow destroyed the sirens before they could sound the alarm.
Officials with the Mines and Energy Ministry and the National Mining Agency (ANM) told reporters on Friday that the cause of the rupture was still unclear and that all documentation regularly submitted by Vale had indicated that the dam was stable.
