The payment date for the interim dividend payable to shareholders of Rio Tinto Limited and Rio Tinto plc and to ADR holders will be 22 September 2022. However, due to the National Day of Mourning declared by the Australian Federal Government to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II, 22 September 2022 is now a non-business day for banking and ASX purposes. As a result, payments for Rio Tinto Limited shareholders who have elected to receive their dividends via direct credit in Australian dollars will be processed on 21 September 2022. Shareholders who have elected to receive their dividend payments in pounds sterling or New Zealand dollars will be paid on 22 September 2022. On-market purchases to satisfy the Rio Tinto Limited Dividend Reinvestment Plan allocations will commence on 23 September 2022.
