UPDATE 1-Brazil's Vale Q1 output up vs year ago; issues at Itabira, S11D weigh

Iron ore production at Brazil's Vale SA fell sharply in the first quarter on a sequential basis, but rose compared to the same period a year ago, buoyed by the ramp-up of multiple key mine complexes. Among the other factors that buoyed Vale's iron ore output in the period was a relatively dry January, as well as the late 2020 restart of its Serra Leste facility, which had been halted since the Brumadinho disaster. Conversely, scheduled maintainence stoppages at its S11D mine in northern Brazil, regulatory restrictions at its Itabira mine and "habitual seasonality" weighed on production compared with the previous quarter, Vale said.
