Mining giant Rio Tinto has advised that it is longer seeking to divest its controlling stake in Iron Ore Co of Canada via a trade sale or IPO. The recent volatility in the price of iron ore has affected the potential sale price of the business, in which Rio Tinto has a 59 per cent stake. Rio Tinto first flagged plans to sell the Canadian business in 2013, and CEO Jean-Sebastien Jacques indicated in 2017 that the resources giant would not hold a "fire sale" of unwanted assets.
