Rio Tinto is a leading global mining and metals company. Our focus is on finding, mining and processing the Earth’s mineral resources.
Our 55,000-plus people work in more than 40 countries across six continents, including in some of the most difficult terrains and climates. We are strongly represented in Australia and North America, and also have significant businesses in Asia, Europe, Africa and South America.
With headquarters in the UK, our Group comprises Rio Tinto plc – a London and New York Stock Exchange listed company, and Rio Tinto Limited – which is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange.
This global presence, and our expertise in technology and marketing, enables us to supply the right product, at the right quality, at the right time.
From our diverse portfolio, we supply the metals and minerals that help the world to grow.
Our major products are aluminium, copper, diamonds, gold, industrial minerals (borates, titanium dioxide and salt), iron ore, thermal and metallurgical coal and uranium.
Technology is an increasingly important success factor in the mining and minerals industry. Improvements in technology can change the way that we look at mineral deposits, make our operations safer, help us manage costs and respond to environmental imperatives.
Rio Tinto’s Technology & Innovation (T&I) group focuses on creating sustainable value and competitive advantage by making improvements to the way we operate. T&I partners with the business and external partners to provide technical insights into how we run our operations and deliver our projects.
