NOTICE TO THE MARKET

Vale SA ( Vale or Company) hereby provides details regarding a news item published in the Estado de Sao Paulo newspaper on April 19, 2016, regarding the understanding on the part of the Superintendence of Corporate Relations ( SEP ) of the Securities and Exchange Commission (CVM) that in the ordinary and extraordinary general meeting (AGOE) convened for April 25 this year, prior opportunity must be granted to minority shareholders of the company to try to elect, separately, a full board member for the position currently held by board member Alberto Guth.

The Company wishes to clarify that it does not agree with the SEPs position, this being the reason for filing, on this date, a Request for Reconsideration pursuant to CVM Resolution No.463 of 25 July 2003.

As set out in its Request for Reconsideration, Vale believes that the SEPs understanding should be changed, in summary, as follows:

(I) The election of the board member by minority shareholders through separate vote is optional, not obligatory;

(Ii) According to Brazilian Corporate Law, the option to vote separately presupposes the election of the board as a whole, as there is no possibility of holding a separate election to elect an individual board member, where, logically, and pursuant to the provisions of corporate law, there should be a single electoral college;

(Iii) The regulation in paragraph 5 of art. 141 of the Corporate Law is a regulation that restricts the voting rights of the controlling shareholder, and therefore, according to the basic rule of legal interpretation, should be subject to a strict, and not a broad, interpretation.

In view of the above, the Company requests the SEP to reconsider their understanding of the applicability of art. 141, paragraph 5, of Corporate Law in the AGOE of April 25, 2016.

However, if the SEP decides to maintain its understanding, it was filed pursuant to CVM Rule 463, section III, Vales Request for Reconsideration be referred for consideration to the Collegiate
