    Rio shareholders back Australia mines sale to Yancoal

    Rio Tinto shareholders Thursday overwhelmingly supported the sale of most of the mining giant's Australian coal assets to China-backed Yancoal, paving the way for the completion of the deal. Shareholders for the world's second-largest miner, which is dual-listed in Britain and Australia, voted 97.2 percent in favour of the US$2.45 billion offer at their respective annual general meetings, Rio said in a statement. Shares in Rio were trading 3.28 percent higher at Aus$63.35 late afternoon in Sydney.

    Rio prefers Yancoal to Glencore in Australia coal sale

    Rio Tinto Monday recommended shareholders accept a new improved offer from Yancoal for its Australian coal assets, after the China-backed firm trumped a fresh bid from Swiss commodities giant Glencore. Rio, the world's second-largest miner, said in January it was selling Coal & Allied to Yancoal Australia -- majority-controlled by China's Yanzhou Coal -- for US$2.45 billion. Rio last week said it still favoured Yancoal since the deal was expected to be completed faster due to greater funding and regulatory certainty, leading Glencore to deliver a fresh US$2.675 billion bid over the weekend.

    Glencore makes new bid for Rio's Australia coal assets

    Rio Tinto said on Monday that Swiss commodities giant Glencore has upped its offer for the firm's Australian coal assets, raising the stakes in a bidding war with China-backed Yancoal. Rio, the world's second-largest miner, said in January it was selling Coal & Allied to Yancoal Australia -- majority-controlled by China's Yanzhou Coal -- for US$2.45 billion. Rio last week said it still favoured Yancoal since the deal was expected to be completed faster due to greater funding and regulatory certainty, leading Glencore to deliver a fresh US$2.675 billion bid.
