The company announced
in April that it planned to cut 217 jobs at its London
headquarters, reducing the total to 262.
A Rio Tinto spokesman declined to offer further details.
"Following the announcement in late April of the intention to
reduce the number of roles at our London headquarters, we are
in the process of consulting with staff so it would not be
appropriate to comment further," he said. "This decision was
not been taken lightly, and Rio Tinto is committed to
supporting all affected employees through the process."
