Rio Tinto lithium projects

Across our portfolio, we produce the materials essential to human progress. Lithium will play a critical role in our future.

On these projects, we work in partnership with a network of stakeholders—governments, communities, customers, and suppliers—who help expand our thinking, capabilities, and ultimately our ability to deliver mutual benefits.
