Directors' statement in relation to financial information published on the Rio Tinto website

The maintenance and integrity of the Rio Tinto website is the responsibility of the directors; the work carried out by the auditors does not involve consideration of these matters and, accordingly, the auditors accept no responsibility for any changes that may have occurred to the financial statements (including the half-year results) since they were initially presented on the website.

Legislation in the United Kingdom governing the preparation and dissemination of financial statements may differ from legislation in other jurisdictions.


All $ values refer to US dollars unless stated otherwise.


Where Rio Tinto is not the sole owner of a company, the percentage interest is shown. For convenience, the expression Rio Tinto is used to describe both Rio Tinto plc and Rio Tinto Limited and companies within the Group, even though these companies are separate, independently managed entities.
