Abstract: Geoethics is an emerging area of geosciences, and the application of its principles is increasingly necessary. The main objective of this article is to analyze the behavior of organized civil society in the face of the consequences of the Fundão Dam failure, in Mariana (MG), considered the greatest environmental catastrophe in Brazil. To do so, this paper presents the relationship between geoethics and mining, and analyzes the reaction by state agencies, NGOs, and the geological scientific and professional community, to the tailings spill from the dam. The analyses indicate the urgent need for a geoethical approach at different levels and in different sectors of the geological community.
