Rio Tinto completes acquisition of Turquoise Hill
Rio Tinto successfully completed its acquisition of Turquoise Hill Resources on December 16, 2022 for a price of about $3 billion, streamlining its ownership of the renowned Oyu Tolgoi mine in Mongolia, greatly enhancing Rio Tinto’s copper portfolio, and demonstrating its long-term dedication to the project and the country.
Rio Tinto currently owns a direct 66 percent stake in the Oyu Tolgoi project, with the Mongolian government’s Erdenes Oyu Tolgoi holding the remaining 34 percent. The deal was finalized after receiving the Yukon court’s blessing in Canada and receiving the support of the majority of the minority shareholders in TRQ.
Rio Tinto Chief Executive Jakob Stausholm said “Oyu Tolgoi is an outstanding asset with incredible people that will deliver significant long-term value for Rio Tinto and Mongolia.
“I would like to acknowledge the Turquoise Hill Board and management, under the leadership of Peter Gillin and Steve Thibeault, for their considerable effort and support over the years, working in partnership with Rio Tinto and the Government of Mongolia in developing Oyu Tolgoi into a world-class mine. I would like to offer my best wishes to each of them for the future.”
Rio Tinto Copper Chief Executive Bold Baatar said “This acquisition further strengthens our copper portfolio, as part of our strategy to grow in materials the world needs for achieving net zero and delivering long-term value for our shareholders. We now have a simpler and more efficient ownership and governance structure, with our partner the Government of Mongolia, as we proceed together towards sustainable production from the underground mine.”
