Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc. (TSX:TCM,NYSE:TC) announced its results for the fourth quarter of 2013, as well as for the year as a whole, also commenting that on February 18, its Mt. Milligan copper-gold mine achieved commercial production.

On a less positive note, the company said that due to the weakening molybdenum market it has decided to put its Idaho-based Thompson Creek mine, on care and maintenance, likely during the fourth quarter of 2014.

  • Consolidated operating loss for 2013 was $175.3 million compared to an operating loss of $607.7 million for 2012.
