Rio Tinto Provides Update On Oyu Tolgoi Project Amid COVID-19 Hurdles

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
