Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TECK.A and TECK.B, NYSE: TECK) ("Teck") today provided an update on the effect of rail disruptions resulting from wildfires in British Columbia (B.C.).

Rail service between Teck's steelmaking coal operations and west coast terminals has been disrupted due to damage to the rail line near Lytton, B.C. that occurred on June 30. Teck has implemented measures to mitigate the effect of the disruption, rerouting shipments to Ridley Terminals in Prince Rupert. Limited rail traffic flow to the Lower Mainland terminals was reinstituted the afternoon of July 5.

Teck is assessing the overall impact to customer shipments and/or production, which will be dependent on the length of the rail disruption. CP and CN are working to assess damage and begin repairs.

At this time, based on guidance provided by the railways with respect to the timeline for repairs, Teck's third quarter steelmaking coal sales are expected to be reduced by 300-500 thousand tonnes. Teck's second quarter sales are unaffected as the disruption began on the last day of the quarter. Teck is also taking steps to mitigate the effect of rail disruption to transportation of product from Highland Valley Copper operations (HVC), which is not expected to have a material effect on third quarter sales at this time.

All of Teck's B.C. operations are currently continuing to operate, with steelmaking coal operations continuing to produce and taking advantage of low levels of clean coal inventory at the mines. The ongoing wildfire risk is being closely monitored at all operations and comprehensive emergency management plans are in place, with employee health and safety being the top priority.

We extend our deepest condolences to all those impacted by wildfires. Teck is reaching out to local emergency service and relief providers in the Thompson-Nicola region to offer support to aid residents during this difficult time.

Turquoise Hill Resources Ltd. (TSX: TRQ) (NYSE: TRQ) (Turquoise Hill or the Company) today announced its financial results for the period ended June 30, 2022. All figures are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise stated.

"Following the First Quarter inflection points of renewing our partnership with the Government of Mongolia and blasting the undercut of the Oyu Tolgoi underground mine, we have continued to make excellent progress on the underground during the second quarter. We fired the first drawbell of the Oyu Tolgoi underground mine well ahead of schedule and have now fired the first three drawbells ahead of schedule. While we continue to forecast sustainable production in the first half of 2023, this is most certainly trending earlier." stated Steve Thibeault, Turquoise Hill's Interim Chief Executive Officer.
