    Rio opens books to over half-dozen possible suitors for Australia coal mines – sources

    Global miner Rio Tinto (RIO.AX) (RIO.L) has opened its books to more than a half-dozen potential buyers of its remaining two Australian coal mines as it winds down the sales process, two people familiar with the sale process said on Friday. The Kestrel and Hail Creek coking coal mines on the block have attracted some of Australia's established coal miners, as well as private equity firms attracted to the positive outlook for selling metallurgical coal to Asian steel mills at robust prices, according to the people. The mines could fetch around $2 bln, the sources said, in a sale that if successful would complete Rio's plan to finalise its exit from the sector and focus on iron ore, copper and aluminium, where it maintains greater market share.

    BHP presents united front against activist Elliott

    The new chairman of BHP (BLT.L) (BHP.AX), the world's biggest miner, threw his weight behind his CEO on Thursday after attacks from activist investor Elliott Advisors prompted speculation that the end of Andrew Mackenzie's tenure was imminent. Pressure has mounted on BHP and its chief executive since Elliott went public in April with its criticisms of the miner's strategy. "Any suggestion there is a set timeline around Andrew's tenure is simply false and without merit," Chairman Ken MacKenzie told reporters after his first AGM since taking office at the start of September.

    U.S. SEC charges Rio Tinto, former top executives with fraud

    SYDNEY/NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Tuesday charged mining company Rio Tinto Plc (RIO.L) (RIO.AX) and two of its former top executives with fraud, saying they inflated the value of coal assets in Mozambique and concealed critical information while tapping the market for billions of dollars. The U.K.'s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) also said on Tuesday it had reached a settlement with Rio Tinto under which the company would pay a fine of £27 million ($35.6 million) to settle claims that it breached accounting rules in connection with the Mozambique assets. The Mozambican coal business, which relied on barging the product down the Zambezi River to export via a planned port on the coast, was acquired for $3.7 billion in 2011 from Riversdale Mining and sold a few years later for $50 million.
