Rio Tinto Group Key Developments

X2 Resources Reportedly Mulls Acquisition From Mining Firms

X2 Resources Limited has completed an initial fundraising of $5.6 billion to buy mining assets. The company seeks to buy assets from BHP Billiton Limited (ASX:BHP), Rio Tinto Group, Vale S.A. (BOVESPA:VALE5) and Anglo American plc (LSE:AAL).

Rio Tinto Group Plans to Cut Costs and Jobs Across Six Divisions

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. The company instructed six divisional heads to remove duplication and formulate plans to revise the structure of their divisions in the coming weeks. The note made no specific reference to the number of jobs that could be cut but there could be hundreds, which could help Rio better withstand the relentless fall in the price of iron ore and other commodities.

Rio Tinto Eyes Acquisitions

Rio Tinto Group is looking for acquisition opportunities. RIO Tinto continues to make impressive cost and debt reductions in the face of sliding commodities prices, with the miner last night logging a better-than-expected full-year profit, unveiling a $US2 billion share buyback and declaring its balance sheet strong enough to start considering -acquisitions. Chris Lynch, director of Rio Tinto says this means Rio Tinto is in a position to take advantage of the downturn if it throws up acquisition opportunities.
