Rio Tinto to restart sale of Icelandic aluminium plant
Rio Tinto is close to restarting a sale process for some of its aluminium assets, including a plant in Iceland, which have been valued at around $350 million, two sources familiar with the matter said.
The assets include a 53% stake in a Dutch anode facility and 50% of the shares in a Swedish aluminium fluoride plant, which are ingredients in aluminium production, the sources added.
French investment bank Natixis has been helping Rio with the sale, one of the sources said.
Rio Tinto declined to comment and Natixis was not immediately available to comment.
