Number of Rio Tinto's employees 2006-2018 Rio Tinto is a British-Australian multinational mining and metals corporation that employed 47,460 people in 2018.
Rio Tinto Background

Headquarted in London, Rio Tinto was first founded in 1873 after a group of investors bought a mine complex called Rio Tinto in Huelva, Spain. This was purchased from the Spanish government, but has now grown through acquisitions with other companies such as Consolidated Zinc. Working across 35 countries, they are one of the leading mining corporations in the aluminum, copper, diamond, gold, industrial mineral, iron ore, and uranium industries worldwide. Since 2011, however, Rio Tinto’s total revenue has been on a steady decline. In 2018, most of their revenue came from their iron ore segment.

Rio Tinto Operations

Rio Tinto focuses on producing raw materials, which includes copper, iron ore, diamonds, aluminum, and uranium. In 2018, Rio Tinto produced significantly more aluminum than copper, although copper was one of Rio Tinto’s main products back in the time of the company's inception in Spain. Their diamond production has been widely fluctuating, most recently having decreased from 2017 to 2018.
