Teck Reports Fourth Quarter Results for 2009

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 8, 2010) -

All dollar amounts expressed in this news release are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TCK.A and TCK.B, NYSE: TCK) announced net earnings of $1.8 billion, or $3.42 per share, for 2009 and $411 million, or $0.70 per share, in the fourth quarter. Our operating profit before depreciation was approximately $3.7 billion for the year and $1.0 billion in the quarter.

Don Lindsay, President and CEO said, "Our record revenues this year reflected strong performance across the company, including record production of copper at Quebrada Blanca and zinc at both Red Dog and Antamina. Including the application of the proceeds from the sale of an interest in the Waneta Dam of $825 million, we will have reduced our total debt by approximately $6.7 billion since we acquired the Fording coal assets in October, 2008. With our current cash balance of $1.3 billion, our net-debt to net-debt-plus-equity ratio is then expected to be approximately 26%."

Highlights and Significant Items

- Operating profit before depreciation for the year was $3.7 billion compared with $2.8 billion in 2008. Operating profit before depreciation in the fourth quarter was approximately $1.0 billion compared with $347 million a year ago.

- Net earnings for the year were our second highest ever at $1.8 billion compared with $659 million last year. Net earnings in the quarter were $411 million compared with a net loss of $607 million in the fourth quarter of 2008.

- EBITDA was $4.1 billion for the year and $1.0 billion in the fourth quarter.

- We recorded record revenues in the full year and the fourth quarter of 2009 of $7.7 billion and $2.2 billion, respectively.

- Our non-core asset sales program, which includes the previously announced sale of our gold business, is nearly complete. The assets sold account for less than 5% of our total assets. Asset sales completed since we issued our third quarter results, yielding cash proceeds totalling US$370 million, include:

-- the sale of an interest in the future gold production from our Andacollo mine to Royal Gold closed in January, 2010 providing Andacollo with cash of US$218 million and 1.2 million common shares of Royal Gold, of which our share is 90%,

-- our 60% interest in the Agi Dagi and Kirazli gold projects in Turkey closed in January, 2010. We received US$24 million and 2.4 million shares of Alamos Gold Incorporated, and

-- our 78.8% interest in the Morelos gold project in Mexico to Gleichen Resources Ltd. for US$150 million in cash and approximately 1.6 million common shares and 12.4 million special warrants of Gleichen closed in November, 2009.

- The sale of one-third of our interest in the Waneta Dam for C$825 million is now scheduled to close in February. Upon completion, our total debt will be down to C$6.7 billion from the $13.4 billion at the time we acquired the Fording coal assets. Our term loan will be US$1.14 billion and our cash balance is expected to be approximately C$1.3 billion. Our net debt to net-debt-plus-equity ratio will be approximately 26%, a significant improvement from the 52% ratio at December 31, 2008. With amendments made to the term loan, our remaining scheduled term loan payments are expected to be approximately US$440 million in 2010, US$420 million in 2011 and US$280 million in 2012.

- The Carmen de Andacollo concentrator project achieved mechanical completion at the end of the fourth quarter of 2009. First ore was sent to the crusher on December 6, 2009 and first ore to the mill January 19, 2010. The process water supply issues have been resolved and the project is scheduled for commissioning in the first quarter. Design capacity is expected to be reached during the first half of 2010.The new plant is expected to produce 80,000 tonnes of copper and 55,000 ounces of gold in concentrate annually over the first 10 years of the project.

- In December we announced that our coal production is planned to increase by 25% to 30% in 2010 to 23.5 - 25 million tonnes.

- We are pleased to support the "Zinc Saves Kids" campaign launched by UNICEF and the IZA during the recent World Economic Forum. Zinc is essential for all living organisms and is vital for brain development, growth and immune functions in children. According to the World Health Organization, zinc deficiency is one of the leading risk factors associated with diseases such as malaria, pneumonia and diarrhea. It is estimated that 800,000 deaths per year are attributed to zinc deficiency, of which 450,000 are children under the age of five.

Earnings, Adjusted Earnings and Comparative Earnings(i)

Net earnings were $411 million, or $0.70 per share, in the fourth quarter compared with a loss of $607 million or $1.28 loss per share in the same period last year. Net earnings in the fourth quarter included positive after-tax pricing adjustments of $58 million and an after-tax gain of $134 million ($155 million pre-tax) from the sale of our interest in the Morelos gold project in Mexico. Partly offsetting these items were asset impairment charges of $68 million on an after-tax basis related to our oil sands projects. The loss in 2008 included asset impairment charges of $844 million and negative pricing adjustments of $270 million on an after-tax basis. Adjusted net earnings were $312 million in the quarter compared to $130 million in 2008 as a result of higher base metal prices offset by significantly lower coal prices and the effects of a stronger Canadian dollar.

(i) Our financial results are prepared in accordance with Canadian GAAP (GAAP). This news release refers to adjusted net earnings, comparative net earnings, EBITDA, operating profit and operating profit before depreciation and pricing adjustments, which are not measures recognized under GAAP in Canada or the United States and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP. For adjusted net earnings and comparative net earnings, we adjust net earnings as reported to remove the effect of certain kinds of transactions in these measures. EBITDA is net income before interest and financing expenses, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Operating profit is revenues less operating expenses and depreciation and amortization. Operating profit before depreciation and pricing adjustments is operating profit with depreciation, amortization and pricing adjustments added or deducted as appropriate. Pricing adjustments are described under the heading "Average Commodity Prices and Exchange Rates" below. These measures may differ from those used by, and may not be comparable to such measures as reported by, other issuers. We disclose these measures, which have been derived from our financial statements and applied on a consistent basis, because we believe they are of assistance in understanding the results of our operations and financial position and are meant to provide further information about our financial results to investors.

Business Unit Results

The comparability of business unit results between 2009 and 2008 was affected by two significant events. The first was the rapid deterioration in global economic conditions in the latter part of the 2008 followed by the subsequent improvement throughout 2009. The deterioration that occurred in late 2008 contributed to a steep decline in the demand and selling prices for the commodities we produce. As a result, significant negative pricing adjustments reduced our revenues from base metals in the fourth quarter of 2008. With the improvement in the global economy in 2009, commodity prices improved significantly and this resulted in substantial positive pricing adjustments on our base metal revenues in 2009. The second event was our acquisition of Fording's 60% interest in the coal assets in October, 2008. Our operating profit for the coal business unit included 40% of Teck Coal's operating profit for 10 months and 100% for two months in 2008, and 100% for the entire year in 2009. In addition, the acquisition of the coal assets resulted in a significant increase in the depreciation charge against the coal assets as the historical cost bases of the acquired assets were adjusted to reflect the acquisition cost. With the US dollar denominated debt incurred to finance the Fording acquisition, and the favourable movement in the Canadian/US dollar exchange rate, our 2009 earnings included a significant non-cash foreign exchange translation gain.

Our business unit results are presented in the tables below.

Operating profit from our copper business unit, before depreciation and pricing adjustments, was $368 million in the fourth quarter compared with $205 million a year ago as a result of significantly higher copper prices. After depreciation and pricing adjustments, the operating profit from our copper business unit was $363 million compared with an operating loss of $214 million last year. Copper prices had declined sharply in the fourth quarter of 2008 resulting in negative pricing adjustments of $335 million compared with positive pricing adjustments of $62 million in the fourth quarter this year.

Operating profit from our coal business unit, before depreciation and pricing adjustments, was $372 million in the fourth quarter compared with $516 million last year. The reduction in operating profit was primarily due to significantly lower realized coal prices, which averaged C$151 (US$139) per tonne in the quarter compared with C$285 (US$247) per tonne in the same period a year ago. The lower realized coal price reflects the lower contracted US dollar price settlements for the 2009 coal year that commenced April 1, 2009 and the effect of a stronger Canadian dollar. Coal sales volumes of 5.4 million tonnes in the fourth quarter, which were constrained by clean coal production levels and delayed ship loading due to severe weather, reflect strong demand in China for seaborne coking coal and increased deliveries to our traditional contract customers. This compares with sales of 4.7 million tonnes (100% basis) in the fourth quarter of 2008 when our customers deferred coal deliveries in response to lower steel demand.

Operating profit from our zinc business unit, before depreciation and pricing adjustments, was $205 million in the fourth quarter compared with $62 million a year ago due to significantly higher zinc and lead prices and higher concentrate sales volumes. After depreciation and pricing adjustments, the operating profit from our zinc business unit was $195 million compared with an operating loss of $82 million last year. Zinc prices had declined sharply in the fourth quarter of 2008 resulting in negative pricing adjustments of $101 million compared with positive pricing adjustments of $28 million in the fourth quarter this year.

Revenues

Revenues from operations were $2.2 billion in the fourth quarter compared with $1.6 billion a year ago. Revenues from our copper and zinc business units increased by a total of $820 million, primarily due to significantly higher prices and positive pricing adjustments of $101 million (before $11 million of royalty expenses) in the fourth quarter compared with significant negative price adjustments of $474 million (before $38 million of royalty expense recoveries) in the fourth quarter last year. The higher revenues were partly offset by the effect of the weaker US dollar. Coal revenues declined by $253 million compared with year ago due to significantly lower realized coal prices partially offset by higher coal sales volumes and our increased ownership in Teck Coal.

(i) Except for coal prices, the average commodity prices disclosed above are

commodity prices and other terms and conditions specified in our various
sales contracts with our customers. The molybdenum price is the price
published in Platts Metals Week.


Sales of metals in concentrate are recognized in revenue on a provisional pricing basis when title transfers and the rights and obligations of ownership pass to the customer, which usually occurs upon shipment. However, final pricing is typically not determined until a subsequent date, often in the following quarter. Accordingly, revenue in a quarter is based on current prices for sales settled the quarter and ongoing pricing adjustments from sales that are still subject to final pricing. These pricing adjustments result in additional revenues in a rising price environment and reductions to revenue in a declining price environment. The extent of the pricing adjustments also takes into account the actual price participation terms as provided in certain concentrate sales agreements. In the fourth quarter of 2009 we had positive pricing adjustments of $90 million ($58 million after non-controlling interests and taxes) compared with negative adjustments of $436 million ($270 million after non-controlling interests and taxes) in the fourth quarter last year. The amount consists of $27 million ($17 million after-tax) of positive pricing adjustments on sales from the previous quarter and $63 million ($41 million after-tax) on sales that were initially recorded at the average price for the month of shipment and subsequently revalued at quarter end forward curve prices.

Cash Flow from Operations

Cash flow from operations was $697 million in the fourth quarter compared with $589 million a year ago. Cash flow increased from a year ago due to higher contributions from our copper and zinc operations as a result of higher base metal prices and increased sales volumes of zinc and coal. This was partly offset by a decline in coal revenues due to lower coal prices and by interest payments of approximately $260 million in the quarter. Cash flow from operations in the fourth quarter of 2008 included strong cash flows from our coal operations, but also included negative copper and zinc settlement adjustments of $255 million in the quarter.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------


Highland Valley Copper's fourth quarter operating profit, of $110 million before pricing adjustments, was similar to $100 million a year ago, as higher copper prices in the quarter were offset by lower copper sales volumes due to the timing of shipments. Positive pricing adjustments of $28 million were recorded in the fourth quarter compared with $158 million of negative price adjustments last year.

Copper production of 30,600 tonnes declined by 10% compared with the same period last year. The milling of harder ores during the quarter reduced mill throughput. This was partially offset by improved mill recoveries as less clay-bearing ore was processed. Molybdenum production of 2.1 million pounds was 31% higher than a year ago due to higher ore grades in the mill feed this quarter.

A preliminary plan has been developed to address the recent geotechnical issues in the Valley pit. This two year plan includes approximately 75 to 80 million tonnes of additional stripping and a comprehensive dewatering and buttress placement plan to stabilize the east wall. Higher grade portions of the Valley pit will be restricted during this time, although this shortfall in ore availability is expected to be partially made up with lower grade ore from the Lornex and Highmont pits. The overall blend of ores available for processing are expected to have lower grades, throughput rates and recoveries.

Completion of the revised pit slope and dewatering designs is expected in the first quarter of 2010. Total operating and distribution costs in 2010 are expected to be similar to 2009, as the additional stripping and stabilization costs for the east wall will be capitalized. However, as a result of the reduced production levels in 2010, cash operating costs are expected to rise by 15% compared with 2009. We also expect to have higher depreciation charges in 2010, as previously capitalized waste stripping costs related to 2013 extension are now being amortized. We expect that Highland Valley's copper production will be approximately 100,000 to 105,000 tonnes in 2010, and in 2011.

Mining equipment to complete the additional stripping requirements on the east wall is currently being mobilized at the site. Stripping of the west wall for the next phase of mine life extension is progressing well and additional low grade ore in the upper zones of the west wall has been added to the mine plan to supplement mill feed over the next two years. After 2011, copper production is expected to average 125,000 tonnes per year over the current mine life.

On June 27, 2009, Highland Valley's copper and molybdenum customers were served notice of Highland Valley's declaration of force majeure due to the geotechnical issues in the Valley Pit. All contractual quantities negotiated following the Force Majeure declaration are subject to force majeure proration.

(1) Copper ore grades and recoveries apply to all of the processed ores.
Zinc ore grades and recoveries apply to copper-zinc ores only.
(2) In addition to royalties paid by Antamina, we also pay a royalty in
connection with the acquisition of our interest in Antamina equivalent
to 7.4% of our share of cash flow distributed by the mine.


Our 22.5% share of Antamina's operating profit, before pricing adjustments, was $122 million in the fourth quarter compared with $64 million in the same period last year. Higher copper and zinc prices, combined with higher sales volumes of zinc, contributed to the increased operating profit. Our share of positive pricing adjustments in the fourth quarter was $27 million compared with $111 million of negative price adjustments in the same period a year ago.

Tonnes milled in the fourth quarter increased compared with a year ago, despite the greater proportion of harder copper-zinc ores processed. The mix of mill feed in the fourth quarter was 40% copper-only ore and 60% copper-zinc ore, compared to 60% and 40%, respectively, in the same period a year ago. The lower proportion of copper-only ore and resulting lower mill recoveries in the quarter resulted in copper production of 81,600 tonnes in the fourth quarter, a 7% decline over a year ago. Conversely, zinc production increased by 76% to 145,700 tonnes due to the higher proportion of copper-zinc ore processed in the quarter. Molybdenum production was significantly lower in the period as a result of lower grades and recoveries.

Antamina set new annual records for mill throughput of 33.6 million tonnes and zinc production of 456,300 tonnes. The higher zinc production was a result of record mill throughput coupled with significantly higher copper-zinc ore processed in the year. This accounted for 53% of the year's mill feed compared with 39% in the prior year.

A $1.3 billion project to increase mill throughput by 38% to 130,000 tonnes per day by late 2011 was approved by the Antamina shareholders in January, 2010. The project will be funded out of Antamina's borrowings and cash flow. Our share of distributions to shareholders are expected to be reduced by no more than US$100 million in total during 2010 and 2011 as construction progresses. The mine life is now expected to continue until 2029.

Quebrada Blanca's fourth quarter operating profit, before pricing adjustments, was $63 million compared with an operating loss of $12 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. Positive pricing adjustments were $3 million in the quarter compared with negative pricing adjustments of $39 million last year.

Copper production in the fourth quarter of 22,500 tonnes was slightly higher than a year ago. Sales volumes of 23,700 tonnes in the fourth quarter were 11% higher than the same period last year due to the timing of shipments.

Quebrada Blanca achieved record production of 87,400 tonnes of copper cathode in 2009.

An internal pre-feasibility study for the Quebrada Blanca Concentrate Project was initiated. The work includes infill drilling to update the resource model, metallurgical test work to confirm the process flow sheet, a series of trade off studies to determine optimal plant location and the preliminary estimation of projected capital and operating costs.

By the end of 2009, an additional 19,000 meters of infill drilling was completed in the hypogene deposit. At present there are 5 drill rigs on site continuing with infill drilling.

Andacollo's operating profit, before pricing adjustments, was $1 million in the fourth quarter compared with an operating loss of $11 million in the same period last year. Pricing adjustments were negligible this quarter compared with negative price adjustments of $11 million in the fourth quarter of 2008.

Copper production of 3,900 tonnes in the fourth quarter was lower than a year ago as the mine is transitioning from mining the supergene deposit to the primary hypogene zone. Sales volumes of 4,200 tonnes in the fourth quarter were 21% lower than the same period last year, reflecting the reduced production levels.

The Carmen de Andacollo 55,000 tonnes per day copper concentrator project achieved mechanical completion at the end of fourth quarter in 2009. Issues associated with process water supply were resolved in December. First ore was sent to the crusher on December 6, 2009 and the first ore was fed to the concentrator grinding circuit on January 19, 2010. Design capacity is expected to be reached during the first half of 2010. The new plant is expected to produce 80,000 tonnes of copper and 55,000 ounces of gold in concentrate annually over the first 10 years of the operation.

The initial project is on track to be completed for the forecasted cost of US$435 million, of which US$423 million had been spent by December 31, 2009. Two additional projects associated with the hypogene project have been approved. The Elqui River water supply project has an estimated cost of US$40 million and will provide a long-term supply of process water for the concentrator. Also a cover to minimize the generation of dust will be constructed for the coarse ore stockpile at a cost of US$8 million.

In January 2010, Andacollo completed the previously announced sale of an interest in future gold production to Royal Gold Inc. ("Royal Gold"). Proceeds to Andacollo, on a 100% basis, were US$218 million and 1.2 million common shares of Royal Gold, valued at US$56 million. Royal Gold's production entitlement is equivalent to 75% of the payable gold produced until total cumulative production reaches 910,000 ounces of gold, and 50% thereafter.

Duck Pond (100%)

Duck Pond's operating profit was $9 million in the fourth quarter after $4 million of positive pricing adjustments, which compares to an operating loss of $36 million in the same period last year after recording negative pricing adjustments of $16 million and a $10 million concentrate inventory write-down. Copper and zinc production in the quarter was 4,000 tonnes and 5,000 tonnes of contained metal, respectively, compared with 3,500 tonnes and 5,500 tonnes, respectively last year.

Development Projects

The Galore Creek Project remained on care and maintenance during 2009. While the project site will remain on care and maintenance for 2010, we plan to begin the preparation of a pre-feasibility study so that updated capital and operating cost estimates can be prepared for the project.

There was no drilling and only minimal site activity on the Relincho project in 2009. Further mine engineering optimization studies were started in late 2009 based on a revised block model which included 2008 drilling. This work is being done to analyze various cut-off grades, throughput rates and stockpiling strategies. The next phase of work will be a pre-feasibility study which is currently planned to commence in the second quarter of 2010.

(1) Results of Teck Coal represent our 100% direct interest commencing
October 30, 2008 and 40% prior to that date.


On October 30, 2008, we acquired all the assets of Fording, which consisted of Fording's 60% interest in Teck Coal (formerly Elk Valley Coal Partnership). The transaction increased our interest in the partnership from an effective interest of 52% to a 100% interest. We began to fully consolidate the results of Teck Coal on October 30, 2008.

Operating profit in the fourth quarter was $219 million compared with $486 million last year primarily due to lower realized coal prices of C$151 per tonne compared with C$285 per tonne in 2008.

Sales volumes of 5.4 million tonnes for the fourth quarter were constrained by our production levels and delayed ship loading due to severe high winds at west coast ports in November. Strong demand from China and increased deliveries to our traditional contract customers contributed to a much tighter market in the second half of 2009. China now represents a significant and increasing share of the total seaborne coking coal market. In addition, most steel producers outside of China have increased their production levels from the early 2009 lows in response to the global economic recovery and stronger steel demand. Customers in Asia accounted for over two-thirds of our 2009 calendar year sales volume. Historically, Asia represented about half of our sales volume.

Average US dollar selling prices in the fourth quarter were significantly lower than in the same quarter in 2008 due to lower contract price settlements for the 2009 coal year that commenced April 1. During the fourth quarter of 2009, approximately 400,000 tonnes of carryover tonnage were delivered at the higher 2008 contract prices. At year end, we had approximately 800,000 tonnes of carryover remaining from the 2008 coal year. Reduced demand from our traditional customers in 2009, especially in the first half of 2009, allowed us to develop new markets, mainly in China. Most sales to new markets are priced based on prevailing market conditions rather than typical annual contracts. During the fourth quarter, we sold approximately 800,000 tonnes in new markets at prevailing market prices.

Unit cost of product sold for the fourth quarter of 2009 decreased compared with the same quarter in 2008 due primarily to lower diesel fuel prices and lower strip ratios. Additional stripping of waste early in 2009, when clean coal production levels were lower and unit costs were higher, benefitted strip ratios and unit costs in the fourth quarter. We expect mine site cash unit costs in 2010 to be similar to 2009 levels.

The decrease in unit transportation costs for the fourth quarter compared with the same quarter in 2008 reflects lower rail rates with Canadian Pacific Railway for the westbound transportation of coal from our five British Columbia mine sites as well as lower port loading costs at Westshore Terminals, which are variable in part with average Canadian dollar selling prices.

The next round of coal price negotiations is in the preliminary stage, but current market sentiment indicates that coal prices will increase compared to the 2009 coal year. We also expect that a portion of our sales volume in 2010 will be priced on a shorter pricing cycle as opposed to the traditional coal year. A shorter pricing cycle would create more frequent adjustments to coal prices during the year.

We expect coal production in 2010 to be 23.5 to 25 million tonnes and we are actively planning for further production increases in 2011 and 2012. We are focused on near term expansion opportunities in light of the tight market that we expect for high quality hard coking coal.

The current westbound arrangements with Canadian Pacific Railway expire in April and the current port loading contract with Westshore Terminals for our Elkview mine expire at the end of March. Negotiations with both of these parties have commenced, but the outcome, which may significantly impact our transportation costs in 2010, is unknown at this time.The union labour agreement for our Line Creek Operations expired on June 1, 2009 and the agreement for our Coal Mountain Operations expired on December 31, 2009. We are currently in the process of negotiating new agreements.

Trail metal operations incurred an operating loss of $4 million in the fourth quarter similar to the operating loss of $5 million a year ago. The positive impacts of higher sales volumes and improved prices for zinc were offset by lower sales volumes of lead, silver and gold, lower prices for a range of by-products and the effect of a stronger Canadian dollar.

Refined zinc production in the quarter was higher than the fourth quarter of 2008 (a market-related zinc production curtailment commenced in late November 2008 and ended in September 2009) but was lower than plan due to mechanical problems in the electrolytic plant and process problems in the leaching area. Electrolytic plant problems have continued into early 2010.

Refined lead production was significantly lower than the corresponding period last year due to early maintenance work on the Continuous Drossing Furnace ("CDF") and the subsequent 20 day shutdown of both the CDF and KIVCET. By year end the lead smelter had returned to full production.

Operating profit from the sale of surplus power in the fourth quarter was $7 million compared with $9 million last year due to lower realized power prices, while sales volumes were the same as last year.

Red Dog's operating profit before pricing adjustments was $172 million in the fourth quarter compared with $21 million in the same period last year due to higher zinc and lead prices as well as to zinc sales volumes which were 25% higher than a year ago. The higher sales volumes were due to increased production levels and timing of shipments. Positive pricing adjustments were $28 million in the fourth quarter compared with $92 million of negative pricing adjustments in the fourth quarter of 2008.

The mine set a new annual record for contained metal production in 2009 as a result of a number of site-driven performance improvement initiatives. Tonnes milled in the fourth quarter increased by 20% compared with a year ago, as mill throughput last year had been negatively affected by a series of equipment failures. Ore grades were higher in the fourth quarter of 2009.

Red Dog shipped 1,020,000 tonnes of zinc concentrate and 220,000 tonnes of lead concentrate during the 2009 shipping season. This compares with shipments of 920,000 tonnes of zinc and 247,000 tonnes of lead concentrate for the 2008 shipping season. Metals contained in concentrate available for sale from January 1, 2010 to the beginning of next year's shipping season are approximately 227,000 tonnes of contained zinc in concentrate and 3,000 tonnes of contained lead in concentrate. Contained zinc sales volumes in the first quarter of 2010 are estimated to be approximately 110,000 tonnes, the 3,000 tonnes of contained lead available for sale is expected to be sold in the second quarter of 2010.

Aqqaluk Permitting

On December 15, 2009, the State of Alaska issued a certification of Red Dog's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit ("NPDES Permit"), the mine's water discharge permit. The NPDES Permit is issued by the US Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") and certified by the State under Section 401 of the US Clean Water Act. On January 15, 2010, local tribal and environmental groups filed an appeal of the certification asserting that certain provisions do not comply with the Clean Water Act. If successful, the appeal could result in revisions to the NPDES Permit. The certification will remain in effect pending resolution of the appeal and will not affect the development of the Aqqaluk deposit, the next deposit to be developed at Red Dog.

On January 8, 2010, the EPA approved the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for the Aqqaluk deposit and, simultaneously, issued a renewal of the NPDES Permit. The permit becomes effective on March 1, 2010 following the expiration of a 30 day appeal period on February 17, 2010. The issuance of the permit may be appealed by any party who commented on the draft SEIS.

Other State and local permits required for the development of Aqqaluk were received in December. The appeal period for those permits has expired. A wetlands permit from the Army Corp of Engineers is the only outstanding agency authorization. This permit is undergoing final agency review. There is no specific period established for an appeal of this permit.

An appeal of the SEIS, NPDES or wetlands permit could result in a stay and delay access to the Aqqaluk deposit. Our current operating plan is to continue to mine the main pit until mid 2011, but to maintain efficient production rates this ore will eventually need to be supplemented with ore from Aqqaluk. If a permit is stayed beyond the first quarter of 2010, our transition plan will be affected and production at Red Dog could be curtailed in October, 2010.

We and our partner, NANA, have been working with the public agencies involved and with the entities which made comments to address the concerns that they raised. While we believe that the regulatory process has been appropriate and robust, there can be no assurance that an appeal will not delay the development of Aqqaluk. We are developing contingency plans to minimize the potential disruption to the operation from an appeal.

ENERGY

Fort Hills Project

The timing of a final investment decision on the Fort Hills oil sands project is dependent on the outcome of the project review by Suncor, the operator and 60% partner, which is scheduled for completion by the fourth quarter of 2010. Spending on the project has been reduced and the workforce downsized during this interim period to allow the project to be completed. Suncor has provided a forecast project spending estimate of $33 million for 2010, of which our share would be $9 million compared with our $271 million share in 2009, assuming only minimal regulatory work during the year.

In September 2009, Suncor, on behalf of the Fort Hills Partnership, submitted an optimized mine plan and an annual tailings management plan to the Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board ("ERCB"). This optimized mine plan improves the mine's economics over the first 10 years of production in comparison to the previous plan and provides details of how the operator intends to comply with the requirements of ERCB Directive 074, "Tailings Performance Criteria and Requirements for Oil Sands Mining Schemes".

Teck engaged Sproule Unconventional Limited ("Sproule") to prepare an independent opinion of the contingent bitumen resources of Teck effective as of December 31, 2009. Sproule's work on the Fort Hills Project included a geological audit and review of the most recent optimized mine plan, as of December 31, 2009 and resulted in an increase in the "Low Case" contingent resource estimate of 300 million barrels of recoverable bitumen to 2.40 billion barrels of recoverable bitumen, representing over 34 years of production at the current maximum approved production rate. The "Best Case" contingent resource estimate was reduced by 490 million barrels to 3.39 billion barrels of recoverable bitumen, representing over 48 years of production at the current maximum approved production rate and the "High Case" was unchanged at 4.35 billion barrels of recoverable bitumen, representing over 62 years of production at the current maximum approved production rate. Teck's 20% interest in the Fort Hills project represents 678 million barrels of recoverable bitumen based on Sproule's December 31, 2009 "Best Case" estimate. The term "contingent resource" is taken from the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook ("COGE Handbook") as published by the Society of Petroleum Evaluation Engineers (Calgary Chapter) and the Petroleum Society of Canada. The volumes set out above refer to potentially recoverable volumes of asphaltene reduced bitumen resources and were calculated at the outlet of the proposed extraction plant. There is no certainty that it will be commercially viable to produce any portion of the contingent bitumen resources.

In the fourth quarter we recorded an equity loss of $48 million from our Fort Hills oil sands investment as a result of the delay of the mine and bitumen production portion of the project. Current economic conditions have increased the uncertainty around the probability of realizing future benefits from the costs incurred to advance the mine and bitumen production portion of the project as originally contemplated and accordingly an asset impairment charge has been recorded against these portions of the project.

Frontier and Equinox Projects

The operational phase of the pilot plant test work to support the design assumptions used for both the Equinox and Frontier oil sands projects was completed during the third quarter. Data analysis has commenced and is expected to be finalized in the first half of 2010. Engineering studies have started on the Frontier Project which will include an option of developing Equinox as a satellite operation. The results of this work are expected in late 2010 and will be compared to the draft Design Basis Memorandum study for Equinox as a standalone project. The Teck/UTS joint venture continues to advance the projects through the permitting process.

Other Oil Sand Leases

During the 2009 winter drilling season 54 core holes were completed in the Lease 421 Area, bringing the total core holes completed to 59. Analytical testing was completed during the fourth quarter. The results indicate 49 of the core holes contain prospective oil sands that range in thickness from 10 to 40 metres (averaging 19 metres) with oil sand grades ranging from 9% to 18% by weight and overburden thicknesses ranging from 17 to 68 metres (averaging 39 metres). These results indicate the potential for a mineable resource, however further core hole drilling will be required to establish the quantity and quality of any potential resource.

GOLD

During the year, and in accordance with our announced intentions, we sold our interest in our operating gold mines consisting of the Hemlo and Pogo operations. Our 40% interest in the Pogo mine was sold in the third quarter to our partners at Pogo, Sumitomo Metal Mining and Sumitomo Corporation, for proceeds of US$255 million resulting in a pre-tax gain on sale of C$58 million. Our 50% interest in the Hemlo mines was sold early in the second quarter for proceeds of US$65 million and resulted in a pre-tax gain of C$44 million. Gains on the sale of these properties and their operating results are included in discontinued operations on our statement of earnings. In January 2009, we sold our 60% interest in the Lobo-Marte gold project in Chile for total consideration of US$141 million. A pre-tax gain of C$170 million was realized on the sale and was included in other income.

In November, we completed the sale of our 78.8% interest in the Morelos gold project in Mexico to Gleichen Resources Ltd. for US$150 million in cash and approximately 1.6 million common shares and 12.4 million special warrants of Gleichen, valued at approximately C$18 million. We recorded a pre-tax gain of $155 million on the disposition which was included in other income.

In January 2010, we completed the sale of the Agi Dagi and Kirazli gold projects in Turkey in which we had a 60% interest. The purchaser, Alamos Gold Incorporated, paid us US$24 million and 2.4 million shares with a value of approximately C$30 million. We will record an approximate $50 million pre-tax gain on the disposition.

COSTS AND EXPENSES

Administration and general expenses were $51 million in the fourth quarter compared with $5 million last year. The increase was due to higher stock-based compensation that is linked to our share price, which was significantly higher in the fourth quarter of 2009 compared with the same period in 2008. Stock based compensation was also the most significant component of the annual increase.

Our interest and financing expense increased to $174 million in the quarter compared with $128 million a year ago. This increase was a result of the debt incurred to finance the acquisition of the Fording Coal assets in October, 2008. This debt was initially short-term and bore relatively low rates of interest. However, our higher credit spread and the longer maturities of our senior secured notes resulted in higher average interest rates. Debt and interest charges are denominated in US dollars and fluctuations in the exchange rate also affect interest expense. A weaker US dollar served to reduce these amounts in the fourth quarter.

Other income, net of other expenses, was $167 million in the fourth quarter compared with other expense of $18 million last year. Significant items in the fourth quarter included a $155 million gain from the sale of our 78.8% interest in the Morelos gold project and non-cash foreign exchange translation gains totalling $39 million less other net expenses of $27 million. The non-cash foreign exchange translation gain on our debt totalled $153 million, of which $50 million was recorded in other income and $103 million in other comprehensive income. The portion credited to other comprehensive income relates to that portion of our US dollar debt that is designated as a hedge against our investments in subsidiaries whose functional currency is the US dollar.

Provision for Income and Resource Taxes

Income and resource taxes for the quarter were $199 million, or 29% of pre-tax earnings, which is slightly lower than the Canadian statutory tax rate. This is the result of capital gains in the quarter, which are subject to the lower capital gains tax rate. This was partially offset by the effect of resource taxes in Canada.

Income tax pools arising out of the Fording transaction currently shield us from cash income taxes, but not resource taxes, in Canada. Canadian Development Expenditure tax pools and tax loss carry forwards primarily generated by those pools are $11 billion. We remain subject to cash taxes in foreign jurisdictions and cash resource taxes in Canada.

Non-controlling Interests

Non-controlling interest expense, which represents other parties' share of earnings of our subsidiaries, was $26 million in the quarter compared with nil in the same period last year. The increase was due to higher earnings from our Quebrada Blanca and Andacollo operations in which third parties hold a 23.5% and 10% interest, respectively.

Equity Earnings

In the fourth quarter we recorded equity losses of $48 million primarily from our Fort Hills oil sands investment as a result of the delay of the mine and bitumen production portion of the project. Current economic conditions have increased the uncertainty around the probability of realizing future benefits from the costs incurred to engineer and design the upgrader and accordingly an asset impairment charge has been recorded.

Discontinued Operations

Our earnings from discontinued operations relate to our Pogo and Hemlo gold operations until they were sold in 2009 and to gains on their disposal.

FINANCIAL POSITION AND LIQUIDITY

Our financial position and liquidity continued to improve significantly during the fourth quarter. This is a result of the substantial cash flow derived from our operations, the sale of assets and the effect of amendments to our loan agreements.

Cash flow from operations was $697 million in the fourth quarter compared with $589 million a year ago. Cash flow increased from a year ago due to higher contributions from our copper and zinc operations as a result of significantly higher base metal prices. This was partly offset by a decline in coal revenues due to lower coal prices and by interest payments of approximately $260 million in the quarter. Cash flow from operations in the fourth quarter of 2008 included strong cash flows from our coal operations, but also included significant negative price adjustments of $255 million that were settled in the quarter.

Expenditures on property, plant and equipment were $214 million in the fourth quarter and included $67 million on sustaining capital and $147 million on development projects. The largest components of sustaining expenditures were at Teck Coal, Trail metal operations and Red Dog. Development expenditures included $22 million for preparatory stripping and $60 million for capital equipment for Highland Valley Copper's mine life extension project, $42 million on the development of the hypogene deposit at Andacollo and $3 million on oil sands properties.

In November, we completed the sale of the Morelos Gold project and received $157 (US$150) million as the cash portion of the proceeds.

Our total debt balance was C$8.0 billion at December 31, 2009. Repayments on our term loan were US$326 million in the quarter, reducing our term loan to US$2.3 billion at the end of 2009. As a result of payments made on the term loan in early 2010, the balance has been reduced to US$1.9 billion at the date of this report and a further reduction of approximately US$785 million will occur when the sale of the Waneta Dam closes later in February. At that time we will have reduced our total debt by C$6.7 billion since we acquired the Fording assets in October 2008. A summary of our debt positions and credit ratios are summarized in the following table.

When the Waneta Dam sale closes later in February, the remaining mandatory payments on our term loan will be US$440 million in 2010, US$420 million in 2011 and US$280 million in 2012.

In October, various provisions of the term loan were amended. The most significant amendment allows us to apply the non-scheduled payments against the existing payment schedule on a modified pro-rata basis, rather than against the latest scheduled payments first.

We also have committed bank credit facilities aggregating $1.1 billion, the majority of which mature in 2012 and beyond. Our current unused credit lines under these facilities after drawn letters of credit amount to $1.0 billion. In the third quarter our senior debt was upgraded to Ba2, with a positive outlook, by Moody's Investor Services. Standard & Poor's, which rates our senior debt at BB+, revised its outlook on Teck from "negative" to "stable". Dominion Bond Rating Service, which rates Teck at BB (high), also revised its ratings trend from "negative" to "stable".

COMPREHENSIVE INCOME

We recorded comprehensive income of $435 million in the fourth quarter, consisting of $411 million of regular net earnings and $24 million of other comprehensive income. The most significant component of other comprehensive income in the quarter was unrealized gains on marketable securities. Marketable securities consist primarily of investments in publicly traded companies with whom we partner in exploration or development projects.

OUTLOOK

The information below is in addition to the disclosure concerning specific operations included above in the Operations and Corporate Development sections of this document.

General Economic Conditions

The markets in which we sell our products have seen significant improvements from a year ago. Base metal prices increased significantly and we have seen improvement in customer demand. Steel industry utilization rates have continued to improve resulting in an increased demand for coal, particularly in Asia, and spot prices for metallurgical coal have been higher than annual contract prices. While general economic conditions have improved and stability appears to be returning to financial and commodity markets, some uncertainty concerning the short and medium term global economic outlook persists. We continue to closely monitor these developments and their effect on our business.

Capital Expenditures

Our planned capital expenditures for 2010 are initially set at approximately $1.05 billion, including $375 million of sustaining capital expenditures and $675 million on development projects. This amount has been revised upwards from our previous estimates as we are now planning to capitalize rather than expense stripping costs related to the geotechnical issues at Highland Valley and development costs for the Quebrada Blanca concentrate project. We may authorize further capital expenditures during the year depending on commodity markets, our financial position and other factors. We also expect to spend approximately $9 million on our share of costs for the Fort Hills oil sands project.

Foreign Exchange, Debt Revaluation and Interest Expense

The sales of our products are denominated in US dollars, while a significant portion of our expenses are incurred in local currencies, particularly the Canadian dollar. Foreign exchange fluctuations can have a significant effect on our operating margins, unless such fluctuations are offset by related changes to commodity prices.

Our US dollar denominated debt is subject to revaluation based on changes in the Canadian/US dollar exchange rate. We have designated approximately $5 billion of our US dollar denominated debt as a hedge against our US dollar denominated foreign operations. As a result, any foreign exchange gains or losses arising on that amount of our debt will be recorded in other comprehensive income with the remainder being charged to net earnings. The earnings impact of these revaluations will be reduced in future quarters as a result of our debt repayments, although exchange rate fluctuations will continue to affect our debt to equity ratio and our interest expense.

2010 Production

Based on our expected 2010 production and prices prevailing at December 31, the sensitivity of our annual earnings to the indicated changes in commodity prices before pricing adjustments and the US dollar exchange rate is as follows:



Effect of
change
2010 on Annual
Production After-Tax Effect on
Plan Change Earnings EBITDA
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Coal (000's tonnes) 24,000 US$5/tonne $ 75 million $ 120 million
Copper (tonnes) 340,000 US$0.10/lb $ 40 million $ 65 million
Zinc (tonnes) 940,000 US$0.05/lb $ 35 million $ 50 million
US$ exchange Cdn$0.01 $ 40 million $ 70 million

(1) The effect on our earnings of commodity price and exchange rate
movements will vary from quarter to quarter depending on sales volumes.
(2) Zinc includes 292,000 tonnes of refined zinc and 648,000 tonnes of zinc
contained in concentrates.
(3) Asset sales and financing transactions may affect our 2010 production
plans and earnings sensitivities.
(4) All production estimates are subject to change based on market
conditions.


FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND DERIVATIVES

We hold a number of financial instruments and derivatives, the most significant of which are marketable securities, foreign exchange forward sales contracts, fixed price forward metal sales contracts, prepayment rights on senior debt notes, settlements receivable and payable and price participation payments on the sale of the Cajamarquilla zinc refinery that expired at the end of 2009. The financial instruments and derivatives are all recorded at fair values on our balance sheet with gains and losses in each period included in other comprehensive income, net earnings from continuing operations and net earnings from discontinued operations as appropriate. Some of our gains and losses on metal-related financial instruments are affected by smelter price participation and are taken into account in determining royalties and other expenses. All are subject to varying rates of taxation depending on their nature and jurisdiction.

The after-tax effect of financial instruments on our net earnings for the following periods is set out in the table below:
