    Glencore hails strongest full-year results after commodity rally

    LONDON/BENGALURU, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Glencore Chief Executive Ivan Glasenberg hailed the group's results as its "strongest on record" on Wednesday, bolstered by a recovery on commodity markets and said it had the assets to meet future demand including from electric vehicles. In line with other miners reporting this month, Glasenberg said there were "emerging inflationary pressures," but they had been offset so far by strong prices for byproducts, such as cobalt, and Glencore (Frankfurt: 8GC.F - news) was able to contain costs. Glencore's shares rose around 4 percent by 1045 GMT, outperforming the broader index.

    WASHINGTON/TORONTO, Feb 16 (Reuters) - The United States should boost domestic production of 35 critical minerals including uranium, cobalt and lithium, to reduce its reliance on foreign suppliers, the Interior Department said on Friday.

    As mining investors push caution, Glencore differs from rivals

    TORONTO/MELBOURNE (Reuters) - As shareholders push the world's cash-rich miners to maintain lush dividends and make the most of existing assets, Glencore is taking a slightly different tactic that positions it for shrewd acquisitions. Like other big rivals, Glencore is expected to lift its dividend payout when it reports results next week, but the Swiss miner and trader is also "open for business" when it comes to buying mines or companies, its chief financial officer said in December. "Glencore's deal-making is now very strategic.

    S&P upgrades Rio Tinto, flags well-placed for M&A

    Standard & Poor's on Tuesday raised its credit rating on global miner Rio Tinto for the first time since 2011 on the back of strong financial results and said the global miner could easily fund a big acquisition. S&P said one of the main factors that led to the upgrade to 'A' from 'A-' was Rio Tinto's sharp reduction in debt over the past four years and its "willingness to keep it low", which would shore it up well against any future downturns. "Alternatively, it could allow the company to enter into sizable merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions without overstretching its balance sheet," S&P said.

    Rio Tinto investors rewarded after tough years as commodity prices improve

    Two years ago, the Anglo-Australian mining giant reported a pre-tax loss of US$726m for 2015, following a collapse in demand from China for commodities. Iron ore production - by far the biggest and most important of Rio's activities - was more or less flat, aluminium was down 1%, refined copper down 21% and hard coking coal down 5%. With (Other OTC: WWTH - news) prices rising, it would be tempting for some companies to sit back and just watch the cash roll in, but Rio has also been seeking to get the stuff out of the ground more cheaply and efficiently.

    Rio Tinto pays out record dividend, profit hits three-year high

    MELBOURNE/CAPE TOWN (Reuters) - Rio Tinto (RIO.AX) (RIO.L) handed out a record dividend on Wednesday and predicted global manufacturing growth would drive further returns after stronger commodity prices helped the miner to its highest annual profit in three years. All the big miners have recovered from the commodity crash of 2015-16, but Rio Tinto has emerged with the strongest balance sheet and a pile of cash, raising the question of what it can do to grow when the most obvious resources have been mined. Its full-year dividend of $2.90 a share - equal to about $5.2 billion - was up 70 percent from last year and reflected higher prices for iron ore, aluminium, copper and coking coal.
