Rio Tinto Huelva Company

Still bleeding...

Both the firm Rio Tinto and its name come from southern Spain, where the Río Tinto (Spanish 'Red River') was the site of an ancient mine which supplied the Phoenicians, Ancient Greeks, Carthaginians and the Roman Empire. Its water is red-colored because of highly acidic pollution from acid mine drainage. Ironically, Rio Tinto is named after a 5,000 year old environmental disaster.
