MELBOURNE May 8 (Reuters) - Rio Tinto has a good relationship with the government of Guinea, its chairman said, but the company will pursue Brazil's Vale and BSG Resources vigorously over the loss of its rights to half of the Simandou concession in the country.

"We've got no gripes with the government," Rio Tinto Chairman Jan du Plessis told shareholders at the company's Australian annual meeting on Thursday. (Reporting by Sonali Paul)
