BHP Billiton and Tio Tinto Joint Venture (worth a predicted excess of 10 Billion dollars)

"International mining giants, BHP Billiton (LSE: BLT, ASX: BHP) [who in 1/09 assumed 50% of Mitra's Vietnam well equity]  (‘BHP’) and Rio Tinto (LSE: RIO, ASX: RIO) (‘Rio’) signed binding agreements in relation to the proposed Iron Ore Production Joint Venture (‘JV’), in the Pilbara mining district, Western Australia. This 50:50 collaboration follows years of on-off negotiations, with many previous JV’s and potential mergers falling by the way-side. BHP and Rio believe the JV’s unique production and development synergies will be in excess of US$10 billion."
