Rio Tinto said in press release that it demonstrated at its investor seminar how its "superior portfolio of world-class operations, with industry-leading EBITDA margins and significant growth potential, are positioned to generate healthy free cash flow and shareholder return." Rio Tinto reiterated its commitment to "materially increase cash returns to shareholders in a sustainable way" from February 2015. It added, "While the long-term horizon remains robust, the near term outlook is more challenging. Our company is soundly positioned to prosper against this backdrop however, because the uncertainty plays to our strengths and our competitive advantages come to the fore...Given the potential market opportunities, Rio Tinto is now prioritising the South of Embley project. Boasting mining costs in the first quartile and attractive returns, this is a tier one investment opportunity. The feasibility study remains a work in progress, with the project on track for board consideration next year and first production slated for 2018."
