    Rio Tinto (RIO.L) (RIO.AX) is moving some of its support staff as it creates three global hubs, but is not changing its operating model, it said on Thursday. Rio Tinto, the second biggest miner by market capitalisation, has listings in London and Australia, a headquarters in London and an Australian office.

    What Makes Grasberg the Crown Jewel of Freeport’s Portfolio

    As we noted in the previous part of this series, Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) expects its unit cash costs to fall in 2018, largely due to lower production costs at its Grasberg mine (RIO)(TRQ). Freeport expects a byproduct credit of $2.56 per pound at its Grasberg mine this year, bringing down the mine’s unit cash costs after byproduct credits to -$0.57 per pound. To put this figure in context, consider that the company’s unit cash costs after byproduct credits are expected to average $1.67 per pound in North America and $1.63 per pound in South America.
