(Reuters) – BHP Group Ltd <BHP.AX> on Friday said it has approved $44 million for work related to the restart of a concentrator at Samarco Mineracao’s operations at the Germano iron ore complex in Brazil.

The world’s largest miner said that the funding will enable the construction of a filtration plant and a restart at Samarco, where operations were suspended following the failure of a dam in November 2015.
