Vale SA has evacuated 200 people as a precautionary measure in an area near one of its dams in Minas Gerais state, Brazil, the company said in an emailed statement.

The people near the B3/B4 dam in the Mar Azul mine, about 25 kilometers (16 miles) from the state capital, were evacuated to a community center on Saturday night and will be accommodated in hotels, the company said in a statement. The embattled miner evacuated about 500 people near Gongo Soco mine as a precaution on Feb. 8.

The miner’s operations have fallen under stricter government scrutiny after more than 150 people were killed in a collapse of a structure in Brumadinho, Minas Gerais, in January. Brazilian police arrested eight Vale employees yesterday as part of an ongoing investigation into the deadly dam rupture.
