London - Global miner Rio Tinto said its chief executive
would step down after it announced a $14bn non-cash impairment charge in its
2012 results due to problems in Mozambique and aluminium assets.
The group said Tom Albanese would step down as chief executive
by mutual agreement with the Rio Tinto Board, and he would be replaced by Iron
Ore CEO Sam Walsh.
