Six Possible Buyers Assessed For Rio Tinto Steam Coal Assets

Australian media said six possible buyers of steam coal assets of Rio Tinto Limited (ASX:RIO) were assessed and they included China Shenhua Energy Co. Ltd. (SEHK:1088). Only Glencore Plc (LSE:GLEN) and X2 Resources LLP bid for the assets previously and China Shenhua, New Hope Corporation Limited (ASX:NHC) and a mining- focused private equity firm participated in, later. As of September 3, 2015, KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR) has also joined the host of bidders for Rio Tinto's Hunter Valley thermal coal assets, The Australian reported. X2 is headed by former Xstrata boss Mick Davis and advised by Goldman Sachs. The Australian also reports that Macquarie Group also had run an eye over the coal assets of Rio but is now retreated and stands as an interested observer.

Rio Tinto Court Loses Appeal Against Asbestosis Illness Compensation Ruling to Dying Worker Zorko Zabic

The High Court has thrown out an appeal by Rio Tinto against an asbestos compensation claim, setting a precedent for the Northern Territory. Zorko Zabic, 74, worked at the Gove alumina refinery in the 1970s cleaning asbestos from pipes, and was diagnosed with mesothelioma after suffering chest pains early last year. In January, the Supreme Court had ruled Mr. Zabic developed the malignant mesothelioma as a result of exposure to asbestos dust and negligence by the mine operators, Alcan Gove, which has since been bought by Rio Tinto. But the court ruled against the claim because the symptoms emerged after the Workers Rehabilitation and Compensation Act came into force in 1987. This was overturned by the NT Court of Appeal in March. In rejecting Rio Tinto's latest challenge, the High Court has upheld the Court of Appeal decision. However, the Court of Appeal of the Northern Territory overturned Justice Barr's decision, and found in favour of Mr. Zabic, awarding $425,000 in compensation.

Rio Tinto Seeks Acquisitions

Rio Tinto Limited (ASX:RIO) is seeking acquisitions. Chief financial officer Chris Lynch said Rio Tinto's focus on cash made the balance sheet robust, meaning that on top of returning cash to shareholders, Rio could look at acquisition opportunities if they came up. "There are some assets that we'd like," Lynch said, "Whether they come free, or on to the market, or whether we can shake them lose at some stage, that all takes time."
