Recent announcements from BHP Billiton and Fortescue Metals Group that they will develop new iron ore mines in the Pilbara has prompted speculation as to when Rio Tinto will make a similar announcement. Koodaideri is widely tipped to be Rio’s next iron ore mine, and the project was first discussed by the resources giant’s board in late 2013. Rio Tinto’s head of iron ore, Chris Salisbury, is scheduled to hold a series of briefings and site visits for investors over the next week, although an announcement on Koodaideri is not expected to be made until later in the year.
