Rio Tinto executive Arnaud Soirat says the Mongolian Government must not seek changes to the 2009 investment agreement regarding the Oyu Tolgoi mine. He says the international business community will view the $US5.3bn expansion of the copper and gold mine as a "test case" for future investment in Mongolia. The nation’s deputy mining minister, Zagdjav Deleg, stated in March that the government could potentially move to full ownership of the mine if the investment agreement was found to have been secured as a result of corruption.
