Results of Rio Tinto annual general meetings

9 May 2019

The annual general meetings of Rio Tinto plc and Rio Tinto Limited were held on 10 April 2019 and

9 May 2019 respectively.

Under Rio Tinto's dual listed companies structure established in 1995, decisions on significant matters affecting shareholders of Rio Tinto plc and Rio Tinto Limited in similar ways are taken through a joint electoral procedure. Resolutions 1 to 16 in table 1 below contained in the notices of meeting for each of Rio Tinto plc and Rio Tinto Limited fall into this category. Resolutions 17 to 20 of the Rio Tinto plc notice of meeting in table 2 below were put to Rio Tinto plc shareholders only and resolutions 17 to 19 of the Rio Tinto Limited notice of meeting in table 3 below were put to Rio Tinto Limited shareholders only.

All resolutions were carried, with the exception of the requisitioned resolutions 18 and 19 put to shareholders of Rio Tinto Limited only. Requisitioned resolution 18 was not carried and requisitioned resolution 19 was not valid, as it was conditional on resolution 18 being carried by the required majority. All resolutions were decided by poll.

The results of the Rio Tinto plc polls were certified by the scrutineer, Computershare Investor Services PLC, and the results of the Rio Tinto Limited polls were as reported by the duly appointed returning officer, a representative of Computershare Investor Services Pty Limited. These results are as set out below. Information on the final proxy position for each company is detailed in Appendix 1, and the votes cast on each resolution as a percentage of the issued capital of each company is set out on our website at riotinto.com/agm2019.

Table 1

The following joint decision resolutions, which were put to both Rio Tinto plc and Rio Tinto Limited shareholders on a poll at the respective annual general meetings, were duly carried. The results of the polls were as follows:

   (1) In calculating the results of the respective polls under 
   the joint electoral procedure, "withheld" votes at Rio Tinto 
   plc's meeting are aggregated with "abstained" votes at Rio Tinto 
   Limited's meeting. For all relevant purposes "withheld" votes 
   and "abstained" votes have the same meaning. They are not included 
   in the calculation of the proportion of votes for and against 
   each resolution.

Resolution 19 'Authority to purchase Rio Tinto plc shares' was passed with less than 80% of votes in favour. Shining Prospect (a subsidiary of the Aluminium Corporation of China "Chinalco") voted against resolution 19. Chinalco has not sold any of its shares in Rio Tinto plc and now has a holding of just over 14% given its non-participation in the Company's significant share buyback programmes. This places Chinalco close to the 14.99% holding threshold agreed with the Australian Government at the time of its original investment in Rio Tinto.

Resolutions 17 and 18 below were put to Rio Tinto Limited shareholders only. Resolution 17 was carried as a special resolution. Resolution 18, also a special resolution, was NOT carried. The results of the polls were as follows:

Appendix 1

FINAL PROXY POSITION

Shareholders are encouraged to look at the voting figures provided in the main part of this announcement, as proxy figures may not be an accurate indication of the voting at the annual general meetings; a proxy is an authority or direction to the proxy holder to vote and not a vote itself.

References in this appendix in respect of resolutions 1-16 to an appointment specifying that a proxy abstain on a resolution should, when referring to voting at Rio Tinto plc's annual general meeting, be taken as references to the appointment specifying that the proxy withhold from voting on a resolution.

The proxy position for each company (excluding the proxy votes carried from one meeting to the other meeting by the Special Voting Shares in accordance with the DLC structure) on the resolutions put to both Rio Tinto plc and Rio Tinto Limited shareholders under the joint electoral procedure was as follows:
