waldron: Rio Tinto to deploy world’s first fully autonomous water trucks at Gudai-Darri MiningMining EquipmentTechnology and Equipment By NS Energy Staff Writer 22 Jun 2021 The new vehicles, primarily used for dust suppression on site, will enhance productivity by enabling mine operations to digitally track water consumption and reduce waste RT-Pilbara-Koodaideri Rio Tinto to deploy world’s first fully autonomous water trucks at Gudai-Darri. (Credit: Rio Tinto) Rio Tinto will deploy the world’s first fully autonomous water trucks at its $2.6 billion Gudai-Darri iron ore mine in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. The new vehicles, primarily used for dust suppression on site, will enhance productivity by enabling mine operations to digitally track water consumption and reduce waste. Developed through a successful collaboration with leading equipment manufacturer, Caterpillar, three water trucks will join Gudai-Darri’s fleet of Caterpillar heavy mobile equipment including autonomous haul trucks and production drills. The vehicle’s intelligent on-board system detects dry and dusty conditions on site, triggering the application of water to roads to keep them in good condition. The refilling process is also completely automated with the water trucks recognising when it is time to refill, prompting them to self-drive to the water stand, park and top-up before returning to the field. They boast a 160,000-litre tank capacity, a 33 per cent increase on Rio Tinto’s largest water truck which has a tank capacity of 120,000-litres. Once deployed, the water trucks will be integrated into Rio Tinto’s existing Autonomous Haulage System which has been shown to significantly improve safety by reducing the risks associated with operators working around heavy machinery. Rio Tinto Iron Ore chief executive Simon Trott said “We have worked closely with Caterpillar to safely and successfully deploy the world’s first fully autonomous water truck. Water spraying is a vital part of mining operations and this new technology will improve productivity and reduce water usage across our operations. “The continued expansion of our autonomous fleet helps improve safety and continues Rio Tinto’s efforts to adopt world-leading technology to enhance our operations and realise our vision of making Gudai-Darri one of the world’s most technologically advanced mines.” Caterpillar Resource Industries Group President Denise Johnson added “We are pleased to work with Rio Tinto to introduce the next innovation in mining automation. Rio continues to pioneer technology advancements and the water truck, working in conjunction with the autonomous hauling trucks and drills, will further accelerate Rio Tinto’s site performance. This is another important step in our continual journey in autonomous solutions for our customers.” Source: Company Press Release
turvart: Ok, Thanks for sharing that! I already own 622 Rio shares and intend to accumulate from trading RIO right all the way up and in 5 years I will be a millionaire with about 4000 shares and an share price of £250. Rio Tinto is going to make me a millionaire in 5 years time or as my Wife likes to call the Company RIO TIN TIN.
turvart: I went to Bristol City yesterday for a nice day out and was surprised to see how many people are hiring these VOI electric scooters powered by Lithium batteries, the first thing that came to my mind was how this exciting craze is taking off in Cities and how much Lithium Worldwide is going to be needed for the Lithium battery production of scooters and also cars. I felt excited where the share price of Rio is going with RIO being in such a strong position of Lithium production in the very near future. Thinking about things seriously, Rio in about 2016 was around £15, could RIO be £250 share price in 2026?
waldron: Rio Tinto, InoBat partner for lithium battery initiative in Serbia MiningOther CommoditiesIndustrial Minerals By NS Energy Staff Writer 26 May 2021 Partnership to cover the full commodity life-cycle, starting from mining to recycling of lithium mining-440743_640 (6) Rio Tinto's Jadar project is currently awaiting an investment decision. (Credit: Alex Banner from Pixabay) Rio Tinto has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with European battery technology and manufacturing company InoBat with an aim to fast track the setting up of a battery manufacturing and recycling value chain in Serbia. According to the mining giant, the partnership will cover the full commodity life-cycle, right from mining to recycling of lithium. Rio Tinto said that its greenfield Jadar project in Serbia can potentially yield nearly 55 thousand tonnes of battery grade lithium carbonate to cater to the European electric vehicles market. The Jadar project is currently awaiting an investment decision, which is slated to be made after the completion of the $200m final phase of study this year. Construction on the mine is likely to take up to four years, after which it will provide lithium products into the electric vehicle value chain for several years. On the other hand, InoBat, which is developing a battery research and development facility and pilot plant in Slovakia, plans to expand its future production by setting up gigafactories in the Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. The company’s goal is to produce and recycle electric vehicle batteries for the European market. Rio Tinto borates and lithium businesses managing director Marnie Finlayson said: “This collaboration with InoBat will enable an important exchange of knowledge and information on lithium processing, recycling and technologies for the next generation of batteries. “It is a visionary initiative and one that is aligned with Rio Tinto’s commitment to partnerships that provide solutions to combat climate change.” The collaboration between the Jadar project and InoBat is also expected to promote the development of a full lithium and electric vehicle battery value chain in Europe. The battery value chain is expected to harness and boost local skills, social, environmental, and governance standards and cross-border interactions. InoBat Auto CEO Marian Bocek said: “The signing of Memorandum of Understanding with Rio Tinto represents an important step in achieving InoBat’s goal to utilise a European-based value chain and support European bid for technological independence. “Our unique “cradle to cradle” approach covers the whole life-cycle of batteries from mining to recycling, in order to underpin circular economy efforts and the Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.” Last month, Rio Tinto said that it had commenced production of battery-grade lithium from waste rock at a lithium demonstration plant installed at the Boron mine site in the US.

sogoesit: @podgyted: thanks your fool reference. Those are pretty bullish numbers! I hold FMG and, based on prospective yield only at 62%Fe Iron Ore prices sub-$200/mt I estimate the current year's (to end June) prospective dividend to be AUD3.75 ($1.47 paid plus $2.28 forecast); giving a yield of 15%. Compared to RIO's yield of around 6% this appears to me to be severely under-valued. If fair value is a 10% yield (for whatever risks you want as a pure player) then it's upside from here is AUD37.50, or 56%. (Being more conservative). Looking forward to the 2021/2022 year the prospective dividend, at an iron price above $200/mt, given that their payout ratio is above 80% and price hikes go straight to the bottom line with them accruing revenue at 85% of the spot iron ore price I make to be at least AUD5.50. This makes the one year forward yield look like 23% at the current share price If fair value yield were 10% then the share price upside is to AUD55, or 130%. (Obviously if the market valued the dividends at anywhere nearer RIO's the upside is quite astonishing). This year, pre-ex-dividend for the $1.47 payout, the price ramped up to $26.4 awarding it an approx. 10% trailing yield. So this price action could repeat come July/August this year when we see the finals. AIMV
the grumpy old men: Sean Farrell Sharecast News 21 Apr, 2021 15:02 21 Apr, 2021 15:02 Berenberg says 'hold' Rio Tinto after weak start to 2021 Berenberg kept its 'hold' rating on Rio Tinto shares after the FTSE 100 miner reported a weaker start to 2021 than the broker expected. Rio Tinto reported a 2% drop in iron ore production on Tuesday to 76.4 metric tonnes for the first three months of 2021 and kept its annual guidance unchanged. Berenberg had forecast first-quarter production at 78.4 metric tonnes. Mined copper also came in lower than Berenberg expected and there were other misses. Berenberg analyst Richard Hatch made small adjustments to his estimates and kept his 'hold' rating with a £64 per share target price. Hatch said the share price target was derived from "our expectation that as iron ore prices eventually temper Rio shares will weaken. However, given weaker-than-expected supply and resilient Chinese steel production, there is clear scope for iron ore prices to remain resilient in the near term". He said this scenario should support a dividend yield of about 9% in 2021 and 5% in 2022. Rio Tinto shares rose 0.4% to £59.81 at 15:00 GMT.
sarkasm: Josh White Sharecast News 20 Apr, 2021 08:19 20 Apr, 2021 08:19 Rio Tinto maintains production guidance after mixed first quarter The FTSE 100 mining giant said production was 2% lower year-on-year at 76.4 million tonnes, however, which was driven by above-average wet weather in the mines through February, and fixed plant reliability. Labour resource availability and weather challenges disrupted maintenance, the firm said, with Tropical Cyclone Seroja impacting mine and port operations in April. Its full-year iron ore guidance remained unchanged. Bauxite production of 13.6 million tonnes was 2% lower than the first quarter of 2020 in the quarter, due to wet weather in eastern Australia. The port at the Amrun mine closed for 14 days due to large swells and cyclones, although full-year bauxite guidance also remained unchanged. Aluminium production was 3% higher at 0.8 million tonnes, with the Becancour smelter in Quebec operating at full capacity, and Kitimat in British Columbia nearing the end of its pot relining cycle. Mined copper production totalled 120,500 tonnes in the first quarter, 9% lower than 2020, with lower recoveries and throughput at Escondida and Kennecott partly offset by the expected higher grade from the Oyu Tolgoi open pit. Kennecott saw a marginal increase in head grade as it began the transition into higher grades from the south wall ore, with grades expected to gradually increase through 2021. Oyu Tolgoi shipments were affected by Chinese border restrictions due to increased cases of Covid-19 in Mongolia, with Rio Tinto saying it was working with authorities and customers to manage the risk of supply chain disruptions. Titanium dioxide slag production was 5% lower year-on-year at 279,000 tonnes, due to a planned furnace rebuild at the Rio Tinto Fer et Titane (RTFT) metallurgical complex in Quebec, resulting in the operation of eight out of nine furnaces. Production of pellets and concentrate at the Iron Ore Company of Canada (IOC) was 8% lower than 2020 due to the impacts of weather, loading unit availability on mine feed and reduced concentrator mill availability. There was a fire at one of the two reclaimers at the port on 31 March, although full-year production guidance there remained unchanged. “We achieved an overall solid operating performance in the first quarter,” said chief executive officer Jakob Stausholm. “We have maintained guidance ranges in all our products, with site teams successfully managing the effects of significant rainfall, in particular at our Australian iron ore assets. “It has been a period of deep reflection for the company, and I have personally spent a significant amount of time listening, learning and taking actions, in particular to better manage traditional owner partnerships and cultural heritage.” Stausholm noted that a new leadership team had been appointed, with the transition said to be progressing well. “We have set out clear priorities to develop a stronger Rio Tinto. “Our focus is to become the best operator, strive for impeccable environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials, excel in development and secure a strong social licence. “This ambition will enable us to continue to deliver superior returns to shareholders, invest in sustaining and growing our portfolio, and make a broader contribution to society.” At 0802 BST, shares in Rio Tinto Group were down 0.26% at 6,073p.

waldron: Rio Tinto begins battery-grade lithium production from Boron mine site MiningOther CommoditiesIndustrial Minerals By NS Energy Staff Writer 08 Apr 2021 Company plans to install a 5,000tpa lithium plant at the borax mine in California 1200px-Rio_Tinto_Boron_mine_and_plant Overview of Rio Tinto Boron mine and plant in California. (Credit: Marcin Wichary/ Rio Tinto announced that it has started production of battery-grade lithium from waste rock at a lithium demonstration plant at the Boron mine site in the US. According to the miner, the demonstration plant paves the way for advancing its lithium production process to the next level. Said to help in recovering lithium, the process will bring out additional value from the waste piles resulting from more than 90 years of mining at the borax mine in California. In 2019, Rio Tinto carried out an initial small-scale trial, which proved that high grades of lithium can be recovered by the process of roasting and leaching waste rock. The demonstration plant has been designed to produce 10 tonnes per annum of battery grade lithium. It will be operated throughout this year for streamlining the process and also for informing the miner’s feasibility assessment for moving ahead with a production scale plant. Rio Tinto will look to install a plant with an initial capacity of at least 5,000 tonnes per annum (tpa). This will be equivalent to producing sufficient lithium for making batteries for nearly 70,000 electric vehicles. Rio Tinto Minerals chief executive Sinead Kaufman said: “This is a valuable next step in scaling up our production of lithium at the Boron site, all from using waste material without the need for further mining. “It shows the innovative thinking we are applying across our business to find new ways to meet the demand for emerging commodities like lithium, which are part of the transition to a low-carbon future.” The lithium project being developed at the Boron mine is said to draw on the miner’s partnership with the US Department of Energy’s Critical Materials Institute (CMI). The partnership has been focussed on discovering methods to economically recover critical mineral by-products from already available refining and smelting processes. Rio Tinto said that CMI experts had worked with its technical leads to help solve various critical processing challenges for producing battery grade lithium at Boron. Also included in the company’s lithium pipeline is the Jadar lithium-borate project in Serbia. The miner expects to complete a feasibility study for the project by the year end.
