About the Company

As pioneers in mining and metals, we produce materials essential to human progress.

Aluminium and copper, diamonds, gold and industrial minerals, iron ore, coal and uranium: our materials make up the world around us.

You’ll find them in smartphones, planes, cars, hospitals and throughout your home. We operate with pioneering spirit.

We’ve developed some of the world’s largest and best quality mines and operations, and our people work in around 35 countries across six continents.

We’ve pioneered technological innovations, such as our Mine of the Future™ programme and our low-CO2 aluminium from hydropower.

And we’ve paved the way in areas such as safety, tax transparency and legacy management.

We continue to pioneer progress for a better future. Through research and innovation, we’re helping meet the needs of society in a growing and changing world.

We produce essential materials responsibly. Our activities help economies grow and communities prosper. And it’s all underpinned by an absolute commitment to safety – for our people, contractors, and the communities in which we operate – and to minimising our environmental impact.

We partner for human progress. We partner with auto industry leaders in developing alloys that are enabling a new generation of lighter, fuel-efficient vehicles.

We partner with peers in organisations like the International Council on Mining & Metals to seek better ways to operate.

And we work with NGOs worldwide to address some of mankind’s most fundamental challenges: how to grow more food, make better use of water, extend access to healthcare, and reconcile enhanced living standards while minimising impact on the planet.

We also partner with the communities in which we operate, sharing the wealth and benefits of what we do with local people, through employment, skills and education, and local economic development initiatives that aim to build self-sustaining communities long after we’re gone.

Rio Tinto’s history in Australia is one of many firsts.

Groundbreaking project developments.

Recognising and working with Traditional Owners. Partnering with governments, communities and business.

Australia is home to about half of our global assets, and we continue to invest in Australia’s future, with new developments such as the Silvergrass iron ore mine in the Pilbara, and the Amrun bauxite project in Cape York.

It’s a heritage built on Zinc Corporation, in Broken Hill in 1905, which helped form CRA. From Hamersley Iron, Dampier Salt, and Comalco in the 1960s to the beauty of Argyle pink diamonds in the 1970s.

Rio Tinto listed on the Australian Securities Exchange in 1962, and today more than 160,000 Australians count themselves as shareholders of Rio Tinto Limited.

We’ve pioneered technology and automation through our Mine of the FutureTM programme and we are working with governments and the education sector on the jobs of tomorrow.

And it’s a future with many career opportunities. Through embracing new technologies, our research collaborations and work within our communities, we continue to pioneer progress.
