Rio Tinto Ltd., Guinea's government and Chinalco Sign Investment Framework Deal to Develop $20 Billion Iron Ore Project

Rio Tinto has struck a deal with Guinea's government to push ahead with plans to develop a $20 billion iron ore project. The government, Rio Tinto, Chinalco and World Bank-owned International Finance Corporation signed an investment framework deal and are all shareholders in the Simandou project. The deal would legally underpin the estimated $20 billion project with Rio leading talks with investors to finance, build and own a 650km railway and deep-water port. The mine could produce 100 million tonnes of iron ore a year, operate for 40 years, double the country's GDP and stimulate 45,000 indirect jobs. A bankable feasibility study will be due in one year with Rio previously saying it hopes to be producing by 2018. The government will have a 7.5% shareholding, Rio 46.57% and Chinalco 41.3%. The government will receive royalties of 3.5% for iron ore shipments. It will also have options to increase its shareholding to 35% over 20 years.
