Mar 6 15
Rio Tinto plans to cut costs and jobs across six divisions. Rio Tinto, is heavily reliant on the price of iron ore, which has fallen by about 50% in the last year alone. Rio announced that its energy chief was leaving and it would fold its coal and uranium businesses into two other units, in a reorganisation aimed at slashing costs.
