Rio Tinto is scheduled to take up a 40 per cent stake in Indonesia’s Grasberg copper and gold mine in 2022. Rio Tinto has a book value of $US1.15bn on its stake in the mine, but Paul Young of Deutsche Bank suggests that its stake could potentially fetch up to $US3.5bn ($A4.3bn) if the Indonesian Government pays market value. Meanwhile, the Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations will shortly release a report on Rio Tinto’s tax payments associated with the Oyu Tolgoi copper and gold mine in Mongolia.
