  • 1. Earnings Release 2Q12 MMX – Results for 2nd Quarter 2012 Rio de Janeiro, August 13th, 2012 – MMX Mineração e Metálicos S.A. (“Company” or “MMX”) (Bovespa: MMXM3) releases its results for the second quarter of 2012. Financial and operating information below is presented on a consolidated basis in accordance with international accounting standards (IFRS) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”), in thousands of Reais, except where indicated otherwise. This was a quarter of recovery for MMX operations after a weak beginning of the year due to the effects of rain in the region of Minas Gerais. In the period, the Company had an Ebitda of R$ 13.9 million and net revenue of R$ 203.6 million. The highlights of the Company’s second quarter were: (i) obtaining the Installation License (LI) for the expansion of the Serra Azul Unit, which enabled the beginning of the expansion work and construction of new processing plant and (ii) resumption of the navigability of the River Paraguay, allowing the shipping of iron ore from Corumbá System to export market. However, it is worth noting that the uncertainties surrounding Europe and instability regarding the behavior of Chinas economy negatively impacted the global prices of iron ore. "At the beginning of this year, MMX sales and operations were greatly affected by natural phenomena, especially heavy rains, that interfered in our industrial activity. In the second quarter the situation was normalized and production reached approximately 2 million tons in the period. In April, MMX received the Installation License (LI) and immediately started work on the expansion of Serra Azul Unit and the construction of a new processing plant, which will be capable of producing 29 million tons of iron ore per year, using state-of-the-art technology. The Serra Azul Unit will have integrated logistics solutions, a crucial step for MMX to consolidate its strategy to become a competitive mining company in the international market" said Guilherme Escalhão, CEO and Investor Relations Officer for MMX. 1
  • 2. Earnings Release 2Q12 2Q12 highlights and subsequent events: • Obtaining of environmental Installation License Installation License (LI) for the expansion of Serra Azul Unit; • Start of work on the expansion of Serra Azul Unit; • Public hearings held in the municipalities of Itaguaí and Mangaratiba for the expansion of the Sudeste Superport to 100 Mtpy; • Total sale of 1.7 million of tons of iron ore 22% above the 1Q12; • EGM’s held for PortX and MMX, approving the merger of PortX by MMX; • On August 10, 2012, it took place the issuance of debentures at the amount of R$ 600 million, by MMX Sudeste Mineração S.A. Consolidated Highlights Var. % Var. % 2Q12 1Q12 2Q11 2Q12/1Q12 2Q12/2Q11 Sales - Iron Ore (000 t.) 1,699.5 1,395.3 2,066.9 22% -18% Gross Revenues (million R$) 216.1 169.7 312.9 27% -31% Gross Profit (million R$) 113.1 84.8 186.3 33% -39% EBITDA (million R$) 13.9 4.2 75.2 231% -82% Net Income (Loss) (million R$) (391.6) 49.3 90.9 n/a n/a Net Debt (million R$) 1,872.9 1,391.6 255.6 35% 633% Shareholders Equity (million R$) 2,578.6 2,949.1 3,129.2 -13% -18% Economic Context, Scenario and Outlook for the Mining Sector The average price of iron ore with 62% Fe delivered in China in 1Q12 was 21.5% below the average price recorded in the same period in the previous year and only 1.2% above the price reached in 4Q11. This modest price recovery in 1Q12 was possible thanks to the growth in utilization rates in steel mills combined with a reduced supply in the transoceanic iron ore market. In 2Q12, however, pessimism in relation to the world economy, particularly in Europe and China, had a negative effect on the international market for iron ore. The economic environment in Europe, which has been unfavorable since 2011, remained unstable with the inability of governments to prevent the slowing down of the economy, in addition to the fear that the crisis began in Greece would affect other debtor countries, such as Italy and Spain. 2
  • 3. Earnings Release 2Q12 In this quarter, the major indexes published by the Chinese Government indicated that the growth rate of the country’s economy would continue to slow down, leading to a reduction in the apparent consumption of steel and, consequently, of iron ore. The fall in industrial production, coupled with the use of stockpiled steel, interrupted the growth trend in Chinese steel production which stabilized at approximately 60 million tons per month. This movement triggered a reduction of Chinese imports of iron ore at the amount of approximately 4%, when compared the second quarter with the first quarter of this year. At the same time as falling demand, the supply of iron ore in the transoceanic market increased considerably in this second quarter. The main producers in Australia and Brazil were supplying the market in an attempt to recover lost sales due to climatic effects that affected the two countries in the first quarter. The final effect, considering the increased supply combined with falling demand, was the reduction of iron ore prices on the spot market by approximately 10% between the beginning of April and the end of June 2012, in addition to a reduction of approximately 20.5% when compared the average price charged in the 2Q12 against the 2Q11 (iron ore 62% Fe CFR China). Long Term Outlook Despite a not so optimistic scenario for the global economy in the coming months, it is believed that the European market will be able to resolve the issues related to the debt crisis of the Euro Zone. At the same time, the Chinese Government also has adopted some measures to resume growth. In this scenario, it is expected that the global production of steel will remain stable throughout 2012 and resume growth as from 2013, although at lower rates than in the past. Given that Chinese producers will continue struggling to expand their production of iron ore in view of increased costs and decreasing quality, it is expected growth in the demand for imported iron ore. In this scenario, MMX stands out for its solid, integrated project, with a guarantee of certified mineral resources and reserves, long-term access to railway infrastructure, besides the Sudeste Superport, MMX’s private port which is now under construction, for shipping of its own production. 3

In 2Q12, the production in the Sudeste System was of 1.4 million tons, 13% above the volume recorded in 1Q12 and 12% below the registered in 2Q11. In this quarter, the Corumbá System resumed its pace of production, which had been impacted by restricted river navigability on the Paraguay River in 1Q12, and recorded production of iron ore of 631 thousand tons, 90% and 7% above 1Q12 and 2Q11, respectively. Sales Sales Var. % Var. % 2Q12 1Q12 2Q11 (´000 tons) 2Q12/1Q12 2Q12/2Q11 Sudeste 1,152 1,165 1,583 -1% -27% Corumbá 547 230 484 138% 13% Total 1,699 1,395 2,067 22% -18% In 2Q12, the sales volume of the Company was of 1.7 million tons of iron ore, 22% higher than the previous quarter. In comparison with the same period of the previous year there was an 18% retraction. The domestic market absorbed 64% of that amount and the remainder was directed to external market. Sudeste System Sales in the Sudeste System totaled 1.2 million tons of iron ore, which is in line with the performance recorded in 1Q12 and 27% less than 2Q11. From the total sales, 86% were addressed to the domestic market, represented mainly by pig iron producers, steelmakers and large mining companies. The remaining 14% were exported through the CSN Port, in Itaguaí, which was made in a single shipment. In this quarter, the Company was able to maintain the export level of the previous quarter, but in comparison with the same period in the previous 4
  • 5. Earnings Release 2Q12 year, a reduction was observed. In relation to the 2Q11, there was one less shipment addressed to exportation, which resulted in the difference in sales volume between 2Q12 and 2Q11. Corumbá System In 2Q12, the Corumbá System sold 547 thousand tons of iron ore, performing 138% above 1Q12 and 13% above 2Q11. More than 80% of such amount was addressed for export and the rest was sold on the domestic market. The return to normal water levels on the Paraguay River, allowing navigation of barges carrying iron ore to the port in Argentina, was essential for the recovery of sales in this quarter. Cost of Goods Sold (“COGS”) In 2Q12, MMX recorded COGS of R$ 90.6 million. The COGS/ton this quarter had an average value of R$ 53.29/ton, in line with the previous quarter. In this quarter, the production cost was impacted by the effect of the provision of the Tax on Control, Supervision and Monitoring of Activities related to Research Mining, Exploration and Exploitation of Mineral Resources ("TFRM"), enacted by the State of Minas Gerais, at the amount of R$ 2.17/ton. It is important to emphasize that, even considering this provision for the payment of the TFRM, the COGS/ton for 2Q12 was 8% below the 2Q11.

In relation to 1Q12 there was an increase of 46% and a reduction of 5% of such expenses in comparison with 2Q11. The increase was due to resumption of sales at Corumbá, as explained above. Sale expenses include: (i) the port tariff for CSN, (ii) port charges in Ladário (Corumbá) and in Argentina, (iii) road transport from the Serra Azul Unit to the railway terminal (valid for export and part of the sales for the internal market) and (iv) MRS tariffs for the transportation of ore produced in the Sudeste System to the port. Ebitda MMX recorded a consolidated Ebitda of R$ 13.9 million in 2Q12, a 231% increase in comparison with 1Q12 and an 82% reduction in relation to 2Q11. In this quarter, the Company recorded an Ebitda Margin of 7%, against 3% in 1Q12.

The result of this quarter was influenced by: (i) reduction in the weighted average of the price of iron ore resulting from deceleration of the global market, partially offset by an 11% increase in the average exchange rate compared with 1Q12 and (ii) provision for TFRM, which impacted COGS in the period. In 2Q12, the Ebitda margin for the Sudeste System remained in line with 1Q12. For the Corumbá System, 2Q12 Ebitda was of R$ 10.3 million. This result was due to higher sales volume in the period, combined with an increase in the average dollar value when compared to 1Q12. 6
  • 7. Earnings Release 2Q12 The Sudeste Superport, under construction in Sepetiba Bay (in Itaguaí-RJ), recorded negative Ebitda of R$ 610 thousand, given its current phase of deployment. In relation to 2Q11, the comparison does not apply, because, the port started to be recorded in MMXs results as from its purchase dated as of May 2011. Financial Result MMXs financial result in 2Q12 was negative at R$ 411.6 million, of which we highlight: (i) R$ 5.9 million in financial income, (ii) R$ 186.1 million from the sum of financial expenses with the adjustment of long-term liabilities represented by present amounts of the expected payment flow of royalties to the holders of securities of variable compensation (MMXM11) and (iii) R$ 231.4 million negative exposure to exchange variations, mainly from long-term liabilities represented by the above royalties.

It is worth noting that such effect is accounting only with no cash effect on the Company. Cash, Debt and Acquisitions Cash Net position: The cash position at the end of 2Q12 was R$ 355 million, distributed as follows: (i) R$ 219 million in short-term investments with high liquidity, remunerated at a charge-free rate equivalent to 101.5% of the CDI (Interbank Offered Rate) marked to market at 101.9% effective interest rate and (ii) R$ 136 million in cash and banks. The Companys cash reduced during this period, mainly due to: (i) investment in the Sudeste Superport construction work in the amount of R$ 180 million and (ii) investments in the Serra Azul Project in the amount of R$ 120 million. 7
  • 8. Earnings Release 2Q12 Debt: In the second quarter of 2012, MMX had total financial debt of R$ 2.1 billion, being R$ 696 million related to short-term debts, and R$ 1.4 billion to long-term debts. Drawdowns from BNDES to finance the Sudeste Superport contributed to the increase in debt of R$ 37.8 million. In addition, the following borrowings and amortizations occurred: (i) new short-term debts in Export Contract Financing totaling US$ 85 million, (ii) long-term debt of US$ 30 million and R$ 129 million and (iii) amortization of debts in the amount of US$ 119 million and R$ 2.5 million. In 2Q12, the average debt term in foreign currency was of 21 months, while the average term of debt in Brazilian Reais was of 60 months. The weighted average cost of dollar-denominated debt in 2Q12 was 6.12% p.a., an improvement in relation to 1Q12, which was 6.29% p.a., plus exchange variation in US dollars. The average cost of debt in Reais, composed essentially of BNDES credit lines, was 8.17% p.a. The graph below shows the evolution of the debt profile of the Company: 8

Below is the breakdown of the balance of purchases at the end of 2Q12: R$ million 2Q12 Corumbá 3.6 GVA 78.7 Chile 33.1 Total 115.4 Investments The main focuses for MMX investments are currently: continuation of the expansion work at the Serra Azul Unit operations initiated in 2Q12 and completion of the Sudeste Superport construction work, which will begin operating next year. In a second stage, the Company will return its focus to the development of new projects, such as Pau de Vinho, Bom Sucesso and Chile. Serra Azul In 2Q12, continuing the development of the Serra Azul Unit project, MMX started the expansion work immediately after obtaining the Installation License in April of this year. In July 2012, as a subsequent event to the closing of the quarter, MMX informed the market that it had received approval, in an EGM, to complete the acquisition of PortX by MMX. The iron ore produced at Serra Azul will be exported through the Sudeste Superport, which, combined with the MRS rail network, gives the project unique characteristics in terms of integrated logistics and location. The construction of the Sudeste Superport is currently well advanced in the municipality of Itaguaí (RJ) and is projected as a private mixed-use port terminal with capacity to transport up to 50 million tons of iron ore per year, in a first phase, which may be expanded in the future to up to 100 million tons per year. 9

Earnings Release 2Q12 Side view of of the shiploaders View of 2 shiploaders (in yellow) Other items In Chile, MMX is investing in the development of a project with the potential to reach up to 10 million tons of iron ore per year capacity. In Minas Gerais, in an area adjacent to Serra Azul, it is located the Pau de Vinho Mine, where early studies point to an additional capacity of 8 million tons of iron ore per year. Both projects are in the stage of conceptual engineering and geological research. In 2Q12, MMX invested R$ 454.6 million, mainly in the Sudeste Superport (R$ 201 million), in the Serra Azul Units (R$ 243 million) and in Chile (R$ 10.6 million). Sustainability MMX is moving forward with the implementation of the Integrated Management System for Sustainability (“SGS”), with steering committees and sustainability managers in all its units, focused on the implementation of the documents that make up the system. Sudeste System MMX Sudeste created another 920 places in its Professional Qualification Program, in the municipalities of São Joaquim de Bicas and Igarapé with training programs for work in the civil, mechanical and electrical industries and in the industrial cooking sector. The goal is to contribute to the increase of professional qualifications in the local community and enable MMX to increase the number of hires from this labor force in its projects. With this in mind, MMX signed a 13
  • 14. Earnings Release 2Q12 partnership agreement with Sebrae-MG for the development of a training program for local businesses to raise their potential as service providers in the region. MMX has opened new channels of direct communication with the communities of São Joaquim de Bicas, Igarapé and Brumadinho. In July, MMX opened the Casa de Diálogo, a place where information can be exchanged with the community surrounding the new ore processing plant under construction in São Joaquim de Bicas; the Company also set up a 0800 line for answering questions as well as some other tools to complement the web hotsite specially dedicated to the project: In the Interaction Program for social and environmental education, developed with schools in the region, teachers and students were involved in defining the scope of the research that will be developed during the year. As part of the Raízes (“Roots”) Program, which aims to preserve local history and cultural identity, MMXs participation in the 14th edition of the Festa da Farofa (Manioc Flour Festival) in São Joaquim de Bicas was noteworthy. During the event, the Company recorded testimonies and pictures that will be part of a book and a video about the cultural history of the neighborhood of Nossa Senhora da Paz, also known as Serra das Farofas. The book and the video will be released along with a booklet of recipes for manioc flour dishes created by the local community. In the environmental area, the Company initiated a project to plant seedlings of Atlantic Rain Forest trees in an area of 163 hectares, which is a vital part of the Serra Azul environmental project. Corumbá System The Dialog Platform experience (MS) was brought to the Humanities Forum, a program that ran parallel to the Rio +20 event, as one of the examples of a successful experience with dialogue between NGOs and companies. The platform discusses strategies for the promotion of sustainable development of wetland and MMX has an important role in this since its inception. This month the Forum agreed on strategic lines of action geared to the conservation of biodiversity and water resources management in the region. The Company was also a supporter of the largest international event for mammalian fauna, which took place in Corumbá in July, when the Homem Pantanero Institute, an MMX partner in environmental matters, presented the monitoring program for fauna in the area of impact of the Company’s project. 14
  • 15. Earnings Release 2Q12 Sudeste Superport On April 13th, the inaugural class of the 3rd Phase of the Professional Qualification Program was inaugurated. The goal is to offer training to the resident population in the areas of influence of the Sudeste Superport, developing professionals for the opportunities that will be generated by the project. 120 places were offered in courses on Electrical Installations in Buildings and Painting Techniques in Masonry. On May 10th, the graduation ceremony for 116 students was held. Since 2010, the Company has been developing the Professional Qualification Program. Courses in welding, carpentry and bricklaying have already been held. In all, more than 300 residents of Itaguaí and Mangaratiba received training during the first and second phases of the program. On May 16th, a meeting of the Sudeste Superport Committee for the Environment and Social Responsibility was held. The Committee was created in September 2010, with the goal of monitoring the implementation of MMX’s environmental management and social responsibility system. On May 23, 2012, the planting of more than 200 thousand Atlantic Forest tree seedlings was completed on the banks of the Guandu River, in the municipality of Seropédica and Queimados (RJ). The initiative is part of the Cultivar Project, a partnership between Firjan with Inea, which benefited from a R$ 4 million contribution from MMX. The seedlings were planted by students from public schools in the region and MMX employees. In all, the Cultivar Project is reforesting an area of more than 100 hectares. MMX will monitor the development of these trees for 42 months. On May 28th and 29th the State Commission for Environmental Control (“CECA”) held public hearings in Itaguaí and Mangaratiba on the expansion of the operational capacity of the Sudeste Superport. About 800 people attended the events and were able to learn more about the project, its Environmental Impact Report (“RIMA”) and the socio-environmental and economic compensation schemes. The sessions are part of the first stage of the environmental licensing process for duplicating the handling capacity of the port terminal from 50 to 100 million tpy. On June 12th, MMX initiated the second stage of the Environmental Education Program (“PEA”) in Itaguaí and Mangaratiba. More than 100 public school students attended lectures on sanitation and quality of life, environmental health and selective garbage collection. The PEA intends to hold 40 more lectures for teachers and students, in addition to the courses to train environmental agents and education/communication workshops. 15
  • 16. Earnings Release 2Q12 On June 14th, the Public Notification was made for the 2nd phase of the Social Investment Plan for Fisheries (“PSIP”).
