Rio Tinto CEO Jean-Sebastien Jacques is confident a copper mine will be constructed at the site of its discovery in Western Australia’s Paterson Ranges. However, Jacques said he is unsure whether it will be Rio Tinto that builds that mine. Jacques was speaking at the official opening of its new $2.6 billion Arum bauxite mine on Cape York. Jacques said much more drilling needs to be undertaken at its copper discovery in WA to determine what lies beneath the surface.
