Rio Tinto: Dominant Iron Ore Division Drives Solid Sales

Jon Mills Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Jon Mills |

Strong iron ore sales drove a solid first-quarter fiscal 2023 for no-moat Rio Tinto. The company’s share of Pilbara iron ore shipments, the key driver of its earnings, was about 70 million metric tons, 16% higher than first-quarter fiscal 2022. The increase was driven by 12% higher production in the quarter along with the company drawing down inventory. First-quarter sales are broadly tracking our unchanged 2023 forecast. However, given the usual seasonality in iron ore production and also that Rio’s new 100%-owned Gudai-Darri mine is on track to ramp up to full production of about 43 million metric tons during 2023, our forecast for Pilbara iron ore sales of about 280 million metric tons (Rio’s share) in 2023 could be on the low side if current production levels are maintained. However, it is still early in 2023, so we maintain our forecast for now.

Key Statistics RIO

Company Profile RIO

Business Description

Rio Tinto is a global diversified miner. Iron ore is the dominant commodity, with significantly lesser contributions from copper, aluminium, diamonds, gold, and industrial minerals. The 1995 merger of RTZ and CRA, via a dual-listed structure, created the present-day company. The two operate as a single business entity, with shareholders in each company having equivalent economic and voting rights. Major assets included its Pilbara iron ore operations, a 30% stake in the Escondida copper mine, 34%-ownership of the Oyu Tolgoi copper mine in Mongolia, the Weipa and Gove bauxite mines in Australia, and six hydro-powered aluminium smelters in Canada.
