Mining company Rio Tinto said it had reached an agreement with the government of Mongolia on a new source of domestic power for its Oyu Tolgoi copper and gold mine there. The agreement paved the way for the government to fund and construct a power plant at Tavan Tolgoi, the company said. It also stated that the parties would work towards finalising a power purchase agreement by the end of March 2021. Construction of a coal-fired power plant would begin no later than 1 July 2021, with commissioning within four years thereafter. Oyu Tolgoi currently used imported power.
