Note:

As at the date of this announcement Rio Tinto plc had also issued one Special
Voting Share of 10p and one DLC Dividend Share of 10p in connection with its
dual listed companies ('DLC') merger with Rio Tinto Limited which was designed
to place the shareholders of both companies in substantially the same position
as if they held shares in a single enterprise owning all of the assets of both
companies.
