Coal Mines

In October 2010, Queensland Premier Anna Bligh officially opened the $1.3 billion Clermont coal mine in Central Queensland. Rio Tinto's new thermal coal mine near is expected to increase production to 12 million tonnes of coal a year by 2013. The mine is already operating on a lower output after construction began two years ago, and a mine life of 17 years is expected.[1]

Rio Tinto has a 70% share in Zar Kuh Mining Company.
