    Rio extends iron ore deal with Sinosteel

    Rio Tinto has again extended an agreement to sell its Pilbara iron ore to Chinese state-owned steel company Sinosteel. The two businesses will sign a new deal to extend their Channar Mining joint venture in WA, under which Rio will supply an additional 10 million tonnes of iron ore in return for an upfront payment of $US15 million ($A19.7 million) as well as production royalties linked to the iron ore price. This is the third extension for the joint venture, which was first formed in 1987 for the joint development of the Channar mine in the Pilbara and is 60 per cent owned by Rio and 40 per cent by Sinosteel.

    Will Rio Tinto Get a Lift From Lithium Frenzy?

    If press reports are true, minerals producer Rio Tinto (RIO) could spend billions on a stake in a Chilean lithium producer. Rio doesn't have any lithium, a hot commodity used in batteries for electric vehicles, and Rio could buy roughly a third of Chilean lithium producer SQM that PotashCorp must sell to meet requirements of its merger with agriculture product giant Agrium (AGU). Buying such an asset illustrates seduction by the lithium frenzy, given that SQM's valuation has been "significantly buoyed by recent lithium price increases, volume growth expectations and a general market fervor regarding lithium," they write.

    Not a race to fine Rio Tinto, senator told

    The Australian corporate watchdog has been asked why it was slow to prosecute global mining giant Rio Tinto over a coal mining project in Mozambique. Already, Britain has fined Rio Tinto STG27 million ($A47 million) for failing to write-down the failed investment and the US has launched legal action for fraud. Greens senator Peter Whish-Wilson was questioning the Australian Securities and Investments Commission head at a hearing in Canberra about why it wasn't first, given Rio Tinto was company with dual listings in London and Australia.
