Supplementary notes

*Rio Tinto announced that their 2020 capex would be between five and six billion U.S. dollars rather than the previous amount of seven billion U.S. dollars, due to COVID-19 as well as the strength of the U.S. dollar. The figure provided in this statistic is accordingly an average between the two reduced figures provided.
**Capex guidance for 2020. Capex guidance has been reduced to between 1.3 billion U.S. dollars and 1.5 billion dollars, rather than the 1.5 billion dollars announced prior to the crisis.
***Reduced capex over the next 15 months from April 2020. 150 million U.S. dollars of this amount would be sustaining capex and 10 million dollars would be exploration capex.
