Welcome to RioZim Limited
RioZim was incorporated on August 29, 1956 as Rio Tinto Southern Rhodesia Ltd. It was set up initially to develop and mine the Empress Nickel deposit in the Midlands and was the first mining operation to be set up outside Europe by Rio Tinto plc.
RioZim separated from Rio Tinto plc in 2004 and became a wholly owned Zimbabwean company that produces gold, coal, toll refines nickel and copper. The company is listed on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange (ZSE). Since its breakaway from Rio Tinto plc, RioZim has had an eventful number of years in which it launched new vision, mission and value statements as well as having some of its operations certified for quality and adherence to world class standards in occupational health, safety and environmental management.
