In 2015, mining dams burst in nearby Mariana in what is considered Brazil's worst environmental disaster.

Five engineers have been arrested over the incident following protests by victims' relatives.

Thursday's news reports put the death toll in the disaster at 110 people while 238 people were reported missing, Sputnik reported. Rescuers momentarily stopped looking for bodies and police helicopters released flower petals over the ruined area.

The owner of the dam, Vale, said in a press conference that the majority of the victims were employees.

"We are prepared to forgo legal actions, reach out-of-court settlements, and sign an agreement with the authorities of Minas Gerais as quickly as possible to allow Vale to immediately begin facing this compensatory process", he said. So far, efforts have been focused on finding bodies closer to the surface and did not involve backhoes.

In the end, the game remained level, but the incident has not gone unnoticed by other Premier League teams. We can not talk week in, week out about the mindset because it will not change.

"After this disaster, we can no longer live with this type of dam", said Schvartsman, whose announcement helped to clarify the near-term impact of the accident on the company's production.

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.

The Paraopeba River flows into the much larger Sao Francisco River, which could also be contaminated.

"This tragedy will be remembered not just here but all over Brazil", said 23-year-old Jonatan Silva Santos, who lost friends that worked at Vale.

A peaceful walk in homage to the victims took place on Friday evening in Brumadinho.
