Copper

Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TECK.A and TECK.B, NYSE: TECK) ("Teck") announced today the launch of a Zinc Satellite initiative focused on surfacing value from Teck's portfolio of world-class zinc development assets located in the Americas and Australia, including five substantial zinc resources.

Zinc Satellite will build on the technical and commercial expertise of Teck's Project Satellite team, which has successfully advanced and grown the value of various copper growth projects, including San Nicolás in Mexico and Zafranal in Peru, such that Teck now has the best portfolio of copper growth options in the industry.

"The market outlook for zinc is strong, due to declining production from existing primary zinc mines, underinvestment in global exploration for zinc, and long-term demand driven by decarbonization, which is galvanized steel-intensive," said Don Lindsay, President and CEO. "Zinc Satellite will leverage our successful Project Satellite approach of making prudent investments to advance each asset by identifying pragmatic development options and paths to value. Value could ultimately be realized through a standalone investment, a partnership, or other transaction."

The five Zinc Satellite Projects are:

  • Aktigiruq – Alaska, USA
    • 100% Teck owned
    • Located about 14 km from the existing Red Dog operation
    • Scoping study in progress
  • Cirque – B.C., Canada
    • Teck 50% | Korea Zinc 50%
    • Located in west central British Columbia close to existing infrastructure
    • Ready access to Teck Trail operations smelting and refining facility
  • Anarraaq – Alaska, USA
    • 100% Teck owned
    • Located about 11 kilometers from the existing Red Dog operation
  • Teena – Northern Territory, Australia
    • 100% Teck owned
    • Located about 7 km from Glencore's McArthur River operation
  • Su-Lik – Alaska, USA
    • Su: 100% Teck owned
    • Lik: Teck 50% | Solitario Zinc Corp. 50%
    • Located about 17 km from the existing Red Dog operation

These projects represent five of the largest 25 undeveloped zinc deposits globally and are all located in stable jurisdictions. We have established work programs and teams to advance these potential zinc growth options with prudent investments to improve our understanding of each asset's potential, and define associated development options and paths to value for each one.

Teck is currently the world's largest net zinc miner based on zinc production from Red Dog in Alaska and Antamina in Peru. We also operate one of the world's largest integrated zinc-lead refineries, located in Trail, B.C.

The U.S. Department of Justice and Hudbay Receive Rosemont 9th Circuit Court Ruling; Hudbay Continues to Advance Copper World

Hudbay Minerals Inc. ("Hudbay" or the "company") ( TSX, NYSE: HBM) and the U.S. Department of Justice today received a split decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (the "Decision"), which affirmed the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona's ("District Court") decision in July 2019 relating to the Rosemont copper project in Arizona. In the Decision, the Court of Appeals agreed with the District Court's ruling that the U.S. Forest Service relied on incorrect assumptions regarding its legal authority and the validity of Rosemont's unpatented mining claims in the issuance of Rosemont's Final Environmental Impact Statement. While Hudbay reviews the Decision, in any event, the company will continue to pursue its alternative plan to advance its Copper World project.

Since 2019, Hudbay has successfully discovered the Copper World deposits located on patented mining claims adjacent to Rosemont. The company has also acquired a private land package totaling approximately 4,500 acres to support an operation on private lands. The initial technical studies for Copper World have been completed and the results are being incorporated into a Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") contemplating the development of the Copper World deposits in conjunction with an alternative plan for the Rosemont deposit. The PEA is expected to incorporate a two-phase mine plan with the first phase reflecting a standalone operation utilizing Hudbay's private land for processing infrastructure and contemplating mining portions of Copper World and Rosemont located on patented mining claims. The first phase is expected to require only state and local permits and is expected to reflect an approximate 15-year mine life. The second phase of the mine plan is expected to extend the mine life and incorporate an expansion onto federal lands to mine the entire Rosemont and Copper World deposits. The second phase of the mine plan would be subject to the federal permitting process and the company expects it will be able to pursue the federal permits within the constraints imposed by the Decision, if any subsequent appeals are not successful. Hudbay expects the PEA to demonstrate positive economics for this low-cost, long-life copper project and the company is on track to publish the results in a NI 43-101 Technical Report in the second quarter of 2022.

A member of the holy trinity of metals along with gold and silver, copper has a long history as a critical material for the advancement of human civilization, dating back at least 8,000 years. The only base metal in the triad, copper’s numerous useful properties make it the third most-used industrial metal in the world.

The abundance of copper uses makes the metal a valuable indicator for global economic health, and for that reason the red metal has even earned itself the moniker “Dr. Copper.”
