Soapstone/steatite are found in many places in Brazil. However near Ouro Preto city steatite is mined around Mata dos Palmitos/Santa Rita de Ouro Preto, Cachoeira do Campo,... and stone-pits are found in Bandeiras, Boa Vista, Maciel,
Catas Altas and Ouro Branco.
I am pasteing some links concerned in steatite mines around Ouro Preto:

Most of steatite craftwork are sold in Feira da Pedra-Sabão de Ouro Preto.
If you just took interest in steatite raw-material you shall research along many brazilian states as: Bahia, Goias, maybe Ceará and Rio Grande do Sul.

Travel Tips for Ouro Prêto

Republicas.

by cachaseiro

You will often see a sign saying "republica" on houses in Ouro Preto.
These places are student houses where students live together and often party hard.
These places are often quite anarchistic and many wild ideas and wild plans for Brazils future has started in these places.
They are there cause Ouro Preto is a big student town and therefor also a very young town and i think the republicas is one of the coolest things about Ouro Preto.

Excellent Guide located in Ouro Preto

by Traveler-from-NY

I just returned from Brazil. One of the places I visited was Ouro Preto. Before I went to Ouro Preto, I arranged a tour with a private guide. His name was Pedro Paulo. Pedro was an excellent guide. His knowledge of the history of Ouro Preto and Minas Gerais was excellent. I had done a good deal of reading before i arrived in Brazil, so I know his information was accurate. His knowledge of gemstones and all other major industries in Minas Gerais was great. His english was near perfect. He lived in the US for several years. The price he charged me was very reasonable. I also arranged transfers to and from Confins airport with him. Again his price was very reasonable, about a third of the cost that was quoted to me by a US based travel company. He is directly located in Ouro Preto. If you want to use his services contact him directly. I always pays to cut out the middle men. Below is his information for anyone looking to use his services.

Black gold (Ouro Preto)

by Andreas_Fran

Another reason to spent more tha 2 days, is the reach cultural, the popular and religious events that take place all the year. And of cource the mines. Find a local and take a tour to the underground!

Estrada Real.

by cachaseiro

The Estrada Real was also called the gold route.
That was the route the portugese took when they had to transport the gold and other precious stones to the coast so they could be transported to Europe.
They ended up in what is today Rio De Janeiro or Paraty.
The route is still thee and marked with little signs that you are likely to come across if you travel around Minas Gerais.
