Workers evacuated at Brazil's Samarco mine after new mudslide

RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan 27 (Reuters) - Brazilian miner Samarco Mineracao SA said on Wednesday it evacuated some workers after rain caused a mudslide at the site of a November dam breach that killed at least 17 people and led to about 800 losing their homes.

Samarco, a joint venture between Vale SA and BHP Billiton, said in a statement the mudslide involved residual mud left in the area devastated by the earlier dam burst. (Reporting by Caroline Stauffer, Marta Nogueira and Stephen Eisenhammer; Editing by Tom Brown)
