A Brazilian court has halted activities of Minas Gerais state-based iron ore producer Fleurs Global Mineração, according to a media report by G1.

The halt follows a recent investigation by the Brazilian Federal Police, which is searching for evidence of illegal mining and the use of state-owned assets.

The iron ore company was also ordered to mitigate damages it caused to a local river. Minas Gerais state environmental regulator, Semad, should also audit the company to determine the damages it caused.
