Hi! Don't know what fonts are used but I have used identifont.com myself and did manage to identify the font I needed.

The first site may be using Deja Vu Sans on the lower left (where it says: Welcome to Discovery Metals)
http://dejavu.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Download

I haven't figured out what is used for the lower case "dml" at the top. Some sort of digital looking font?

On the next one, the OZ logo looks like an artist has created it but they could have started with a font like Frutiger 95 Ultra black. http://www.fonts.com/findfonts/detail.htm?pid=425865&grab_id=0&page_id=15669&query=Frutiger%20extra%20black&SCOPE=Fonts

The type across the top (Home, About OZ Minerals, etc.) looks like Fruitger 65 Bold
http://www.fonts.com/findfonts/detail.htm?pid=425865&grab_id=0&page_id=15669&query=Frutiger%20extra%20black&SCOPE=Fonts

On the third page you referred to it looks like: Rio Tinto named among most ethical is using this code:  font-family: verdana,arial, sans-serif;

I am trying to find out what the RioTinto that is rotated in the upper left is.

That RioTinto logo that is rotated is shown on this page (and is bigger)
http://www.riotinto.com/
They've altered the first "i" and possibly used a swash character on the upper case R
For all we know, the letters could have had more alterations - since that looks like a designed logo.
Not quite this one: Egyptienne F
 http://www.fonts.com/findfonts/detail.htm?pid=242729&grab_id=0&page_id=18375&query=Egyptienne%20F&SCOPE=Fonts

Another page that shows Adobe Egyptienne:
http://store1.adobe.com/cfusion/store/html/index.cfm?store=OLS-US&code=1174&nr=0&pid=930349&event=displayFontPackage&newsample=RioTinto
It could be some variation of a slab serif type (that is a type classification)
See these pages at adobe:
http://store1.adobe.com/cfusion/store/html/index.cfm?store=OLS-US&code=1174&nr=0&pid=930349&event=displayFontPackage&newsample=RioTinto
