    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 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.

    Former Barclays chief executive John Varley quit as a director of mining giant Rio Tinto on Wednesday after being charged with conspiracy to commit fraud in Britain.
