Oct 28 (Reuters) - Brazilian miner Vale SA VALE3.SA on Wednesday reported third quarter net profit of $2.9 billion, as the company boosted iron ore production and inventories following a deadly dam disaster in January 2019.

The result, which compared with a net profit of $995 million in the year-ago period, fell short of a Refinitiv estimate of $3.6 billion.
