By Rhiannon Hoyle
SYDNEY--BHP Group Ltd. said the Brazilian iron-ore operation it
owns jointly with Vale SA has restarted iron-ore pellet production

suspended in the wake of a devastating waste-dam collapse in
Samarco Mineração S.A., the joint venture, expects initially to
produce roughly 8 million metric tons of the steelmaking commodity
a year, BHP said.
