RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Anglo American Plc received an operating license for a iron ore mine and processing plant in Brazil's state of Minas Gerais, the company said on Tuesday, moving the long-delayed and over-budget project closer to completion.

The London-based global miner expects to ship the first ore from the Minas-Rio Project by the end of this year using its docks at the Port of Acu in Rio de Janeiro state, the company said in a statement. (Reporting by Jeb Blount; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
