President & CEO of Teck Resources Limited to Address Economic Club

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 23, 2009) - While the impact of the worldwide recession on the Canadian mining sector is very real, the industry remains a significant contributor to the Canadian economy. In 2008, the mining sector contributed $40 billion to Canada's GDP while employing 351,000 workers in mineral extraction, smelting, fabrication and manufacturing.

This year, during the Mining Association of Canada's annual Mining Day on the Hill event taking place in Ottawa on Tuesday November 24th, the focus will be on the significance of a strong Canadian mining sector in the aftermath of the world-wide recession. Mr. Don Lindsay, President and CEO of Teck Resources will offer his views on the economic outlook and potential opportunities and challenges facing Canadian mining companies like Teck Resources as well as his views on the future of the exploration, mining and resource industries, and their role in Canada's long-term economic success.
