Clough, as part of ​GCR Mongolia joint venture, is participating in one of the most exciting developments in copper and gold mining. Oyu Tolgoi contains reserves and resources that make it one of the world’s largest known copper and gold deposits.

Situated in the southern Gobi Desert of Mongolia, approximately 550 kilometres south of the capital, Ulaanbaatar and 80 kilometres north of the Mongolia-China border, Oyu Tolgoi is jointly owned by the Government of Mongolia (34 per cent) and Turquoise Hill Resources (66 per cent, of which Rio Tinto owns 51 per cent).
