Rio Tinto is working with the Mongolian government to ensure Oyu Tolgoi is operating in accordance with the restrictions authorities have put in place to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Since January the movement of goods and people within Mongolia have been restricted within and across its border and this has further escalated recently as the first case of COVID-19 has occurred in the country.
Work on the underground mine continues; however, progress is being slowed as a result of these measures. There is restricted access for teams from Rio Tinto
