Rio Tinto Limited Company Profile
Rio Tinto is on the lookout for pay dirt. Rio Tinto Limited, one of the world's largest mining operations (along with BHP Billiton and Vale), is the Australian half of dual-listed sister companies, with Rio Tinto plc taking up residence in London. Although each company trades separately, the two Rio Tintos operate as one business. Rio Tinto explores for a variety of commodities: bauxite, coal, copper, diamonds, gold, iron ore, minerals (borates and titanium dioxide), nickel, and potash. Iron ore makes up about 44% of the group's sales. It also produces aluminum through its Rio Tinto Alcan unit. Most of its businesses are in Australia and North America, but it is expanding its operations in China and Mongolia.
