Brazilian miner Vale said in a filing on Monday that a court has granted a temporary injunction giving back operational licenses to the company’s Sossego and Onca Puma mines.

The miner was informed by the State of Para’s environmental secretary last week that its operating license for the mines had been suspended.

Para’s environment secretary did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
