Rio Tinto in Talks to Buy Riversdale Mining, Telegraph Reports

Rio Tinto Plc is in talks to buy Riversdale Mining Ltd. for about A$15 a share, the London-based Daily Telegraph said, citing unidentified people familiar with the matter.

A deal to buy Australia-listed Riversdale, which has coal-mining projects in Africa, isn’t certain to be completed, the newspaper said.

Karen Halbert, a spokeswoman for Rio in Australia, said the company doesn’t comment on market speculation. Bill Kemmery, a spokesman for Riversdale at Sydney-based Fortbridge Consulting, declined to comment. Rio Tinto spokesman Tony Shaffer in London also said the company doesn’t comment on speculation.

Riversdale shares closed at A$14.10 on Dec. 3 in Sydney.
