Turquoise Hill Resources has advised that the Mongolian Anti-Corruption Authority is investigating the potential abuse of power by "authorised officials" during negotiations for the Oyu Tolgoi investment agreement in 2008. Turquoise Hill, which has a 66 per cent stake in the copper mine, is in turn controlled by Rio Tinto. Turquoise Hill – which was called Ivanhoe Mines negotiations were being held – has stressed that there are no indications that Oyu Tolgoi itself is being investigated. Rio Tinto held a stake of less than 10 per cent in the company at the time.
