VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- 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, ("Teck")) reported annual adjusted profit attributable to shareholders of $1.5 billion, or $2.60 per share, compared with a record $2.5 billion or $4.18 per share in 2011. Fourth quarter adjusted profit attributable to shareholders was $354 million, or $0.61 per share, compared with $613 million, or $1.04 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2011.

"From an operations perspective, 2012 was a good year," said Don Lindsay, President and CEO. "Our copper production was a record, we continued to increase our steelmaking coal production and we obtained new labour agreements for a number of our operations. However, due to uncertain global economic conditions, prices for all of our major products were down compared to last year, which resulted in lower earnings and cash flows than in 2011."

Highlights and Significant Items

-- Gross profit before depreciation and amortization in 2012 was $4.0 billion compared with a record $5.8 billion in 2011. Gross profit before depreciation and amortization was $961 million in the fourth quarter compared with $1.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011.-- Cash flow from operations, before working capital changes, was $3.2 billion in 2012 compared with a record $4.6 billion last year. Cash flow from operations, before working capital changes, was $722 million in the fourth quarter compared with $1.2 billion a year ago.-- Profit attributable to shareholders was $811 million in 2012 compared with a record $2.7 billion in 2011. Profit attributable to shareholders was $145 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared with $637 million in the same period last year.-- To date we have reached agreements with our coal customers to sell 6.0 million tonnes of coal in the first quarter of 2013 at an average price of US$159 per tonne.

This document contains forward-looking statements. Please refer to the cautionary language under the heading "CAUTIONARY STATEMENT ON FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION" below.

Overview

We met our production targets for both the quarter and the year for all of our major products. In doing so we also reduced our coal unit costs and took significant steps in our announced cost reduction program to reduce operating costs at all operations. Unfortunately, weakness in steelmaking coal markets had a significant negative effect on prices and, to a lesser extent, volumes and our coal business was less profitable as a result. However, our gross profit was higher than the previous quarter, helped by stronger results in copper and the seasonality of zinc and lead sales from Red Dog.

During the quarter we completed the redemption of our remaining high-yield notes and recorded a $259 million after-tax charge on the redemption. We view the redemption as a positive step that will result in significantly lower interest charges going forward. Debt due before the end of 2016 is now approximately US$325 million.

In project development, we continue to make good progress on the mill modernization at Highland Valley Copper, the acid plant project at Trail and the advancement of our new mine development projects. We maintain a strong balance sheet in order to fund this internal growth.

We increased our distributions to shareholders, raising our semi-annual dividend to $0.45 per share and buying back 3.8 million Class B subordinate voting shares at a cost of $123 million.

We were also pleased to be named to the top 100 most sustainable companies at the world economic forum in Davos, placing highest among Canadian companies. We believe our commitment to sustainability provides us with a competitive advantage in developing and operating mines throughout the world.

Profit and Adjusted Profit(i)

Adjusted profit, which excludes the effect of our debt refinancing and certain other transactions as described in the table below, was $354 million, or $0.61 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared with $613 million, or $1.04 per share, in the same period a year ago.

Our lower adjusted profit was primarily due to a 37% decline in our realized steelmaking coal prices in the fourth quarter compared with the same period a year ago. This was despite higher sales volumes. Partly offsetting the decline in our coal business unit were higher contributions from our copper business unit as a result of increased production levels. Profit attributable to shareholders in the fourth quarter was affected by a $259 million after-tax charge related to the refinancing of our remaining high-yield notes, which is excluded from adjusted profit. This transaction reduced interest costs in the fourth quarter and will result in further interest savings going forward.

Profit attributable to shareholders was $145 million, or $0.25 per share, in the fourth quarter compared with $637 million or $1.08 per share in the same period last year.

(i) Our financial results are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). This news release refers to adjusted profit, adjusted earnings per share, EBITDA and gross profit before depreciation and amortization, which are not measures recognized under IFRS in Canada and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS or Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") in the United States. For adjusted profit we adjust profit attributable to shareholders as reported to remove the effect of certain kinds of transactions in these measures. EBITDA is profit attributable to shareholders before net finance expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Gross profit before depreciation and amortization is gross profit with depreciation and amortization added back. 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

Gross profit before depreciation and amortization from our copper business unit in the fourth quarter increased by $91 million compared with a year ago as a result of production and sales volumes, which increased by approximately 15%. Copper production in the fourth quarter was 103,000 tonnes compared with 89,000 tonnes a year ago, which was a new quarterly production record, and an increase of 4% from the third quarter of 2012. The higher production is a result of our share of additional production from Antamina's mine expansion and the mining of higher grade sections at Highland Valley Copper. Copper prices were also higher at US$3.59 per pound in the fourth quarter compared with US$3.40 per pound a year ago. The higher copper prices were partly offset by a stronger Canadian dollar and lower molybdenum revenues. Cash costs, net of by-product credits, were US$1.79 compared with US$1.51 per pound a year ago, largely due to lower by-product credits in 2012.

Gross profit before depreciation and amortization from our coal business unit decreased by $544 million in the fourth quarter compared with the same period a year ago as a result of significantly lower coal prices, despite a 16% increase in sales volumes. The average coal price of US$159 per tonne in the fourth quarter was 37% lower than the same quarter a year ago, reflecting weaker steelmaking coal market conditions. Coal sales of 6.4 million tonnes in the fourth quarter were 16% higher than the same period last year and exceeded prior guidance of 6.2 million tonnes. The increase in sales volume predominantly reflects strong demand for coal delivered to China, partially offset by lower demand in our traditional markets. Production in the fourth quarter decreased to 6.4 million tonnes, or by 5% compared with the same quarter in 2011 as a result of our decision to reduce production starting in mid-August through to the end of the year to align with customer demand. Cost of product sold in the fourth quarter was $62 per tonne, before transportation and depreciation charges, or $3 per tonne lower than the same quarter a year ago, and 17% lower than in the first three quarters of 2012, reflecting our cost reduction efforts at our mines. Transportation costs in the fourth quarter were $41 per tonne, 24% higher compared with the same quarter a year ago, as a result of higher ocean freight, port, rail costs and a higher than normal proportion of coal being sold inclusive of ocean freight.

Gross profit before depreciation and amortization from our zinc business unit decreased by $22 million to $182 million in the fourth quarter compared with a year ago primarily due to a lower contribution from our Trail Operations. Trail's refined zinc production and sales volumes declined by approximately 10% compared with the fourth quarter of last year due to electrolytic plant operating performance, which resulted in a temporary build-up of in-process inventories. Red Dog's zinc production rose by 5% to 142,300 tonnes in the fourth quarter compared with the same period a year ago as a result of increased mill throughput. Higher lead sales from Red Dog were the result of weather-related shipping delays that deferred sales from the third quarter. This was offset by an increase in the NANA royalty rate from 25% to 30% in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Revenues

Revenues from operations were $2.7 billion in the fourth quarter compared with revenues of $3.0 billion a year ago. Revenues from our copper business unit increased by $117 million from a year ago primarily due to higher sales volumes resulting from increased production levels. Coal revenues decreased by $424 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2011 as a result of significantly lower coal prices, despite a 16% increase in sales volumes. Revenues from our zinc business unit rose by $64 million from a year ago as a result of the timing of lead sales from Red Dog and slightly higher metal prices.

Results do not include a provision for the 2.5% non-controlling interest in Highland Valley Copper.



Highland Valley Copper's fourth quarter gross profit before depreciation and amortization increased significantly from a year ago due to substantially higher production and sales volumes. In addition, Highland Valley's 2011 operating costs included a one-time labour settlement charge of $44 million that contributed to the lower gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Copper production in the fourth quarter of 37,400 tonnes was 37% higher than a year ago primarily as a result of significantly higher grades. Production was focused on the higher grade ore in the Valley pit during the fourth quarter of 2012. Molybdenum production was 10% lower than the same period a year ago primarily due to lower ore grades.

The mill optimization project progressed in the fourth quarter with commencement of structural steel erection and placement of major equipment. Detailed engineering was substantially complete at the end of the year. The project is on track for completion by the end of 2013, which will enable increased throughput rates and recoveries in 2014.

Ore feed grades are expected to return to the average reserve grade in 2013, with slightly lower grades expected in the first quarter due to pit sequencing. Mill throughput is also expected to be constrained in 2013 due to various shutdowns required for tie-ins to advance the mill optimization project.

Highland Valley Copper's production in 2013 is expected to be in the range of 100,000 to 110,000 tonnes of copper. Molybdenum production in 2013 is expected to be approximately five million pounds.

Antamina (22.5%)

Operating results at the 100% level are summarized in the following table:

Copper ore grades and recoveries apply to all of the processed ores. Zinc ore grades and recoveries apply to copper-zinc ores only.2. Cost of sales in the fourth quarter includes a US$43 million one-time labour settlement charge.3. 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.



The increase in our 22.5% share of Antamina's gross profit before depreciation and amortization in the fourth quarter was primarily due to significantly higher sales volumes as the benefits from the expansion project and resulting higher production levels were realized. Our 22.5% share of gross profit was affected by a one-time $10 million (US$43 million - 100% basis) labour settlement charge for the new three-year labour agreement ratified in the quarter.

Tonnes milled in the fourth quarter were 22% higher than a year ago and averaged approximately 128,000 tonnes per day, which reflects Antamina's expanded mill capacity. The mix of mill feed in the fourth quarter of 73% copper-only ore and 27% copper-zinc ore was the same as a year ago. Copper production increased by 28% to 121,600 tonnes compared with 95,000 tonnes in the fourth quarter of 2011, reflecting the additional mill throughput and slightly improved recoveries. Zinc production in the fourth quarter of 44,400 tonnes was 7% lower than the same period last year as lower ore grades offset the increased mill throughput. Molybdenum production decreased in the fourth quarter compared with a year ago as a result of lower molybdenum grades and recoveries.

The increased cost of sales in the fourth quarter compared with a year ago was due to substantially increased sales volumes in both copper and zinc and the one-time US$43 million charge for the new three-year labour agreement ratified in the quarter. Excluding the one-time labour settlement charge, total cash costs, before by-product credits, was similar to the same quarter last year.

Our 22.5% share of Antamina's copper production in 2013 is expected to be in the range of 90,000 to 100,000 tonnes and our 22.5% share of zinc production is expected to be in the range of 45,000 to 50,000 tonnes.

Quebrada Blanca's gross profit before depreciation and amortization in the fourth quarter declined substantially due to significantly higher unit costs, and a 14% decrease in sales volumes as a result of lower production.

Copper production in the fourth quarter declined by 19% to 14,300 tonnes compared with the same period a year ago. Production decreased as a result of processing lower amounts of heap and dump-leach ore placed in this and previous quarters. In addition, dump leach mining activities were stopped in the fourth quarter as a result of a flow of dump leach solution into the open pit through a gravel lens in the pit wall. Dump leach mining is expected to resume in the first quarter of 2013.

Operating costs increased by US$34 million in the fourth quarter compared with the same period a year ago. The increase was due to significant increases for labour costs, reflecting the new terms of the collective agreement ratified earlier in 2012, higher contractor and consumables costs.

Steps were taken in the fourth quarter to address lower production and higher costs at Quebrada Blanca, as the leaching operation reduces in scale ahead of the Phase 2 concentrator project due to lower ore grades. Manpower of both company employees and contractor employees was reduced and a review of supply and maintenance contracts was undertaken. These and other actions are expected to improve results in 2013, although challenges will remain as the Quebrada Blanca Operation nears the end of its life.

Quebrada Blanca's production in 2013 is expected to be in the range of 50,000 to 60,000 tonnes of copper cathode.

Carmen de Andacollo (90%)

Operating results at the 100% level are summarized in the following table:

Carmen de Andacollo processes 100% of gold mined, but 75% of the gold produced is for the account of Royal Gold Inc.2. Results do not include a provision for the 10% non-controlling interest in Andacollo.



The increase in Carmen de Andacollo's fourth quarter gross profit before depreciation and amortization was primarily due to increased copper production and sales, as well as higher copper prices.

Total copper production rose by 7% to 20,500 tonnes compared with the same period a year ago. The concentrator processed a record 55,500 tonnes per day in October, slightly over design capacity.

Operating costs in the fourth quarter increased by 23% to US$96 million compared with a year ago, due primarily to the 16% rise in sales volumes and partly to higher labour and energy costs.

Carmen de Andacollo's production in 2013 is expected to be in the range of 70,000 and 80,000 tonnes of copper in concentrate and approximately 5,000 tonnes of copper cathode.

Duck Pond (100%)

Duck Pond's gross profit before depreciation and amortization increased to $15 million in the fourth quarter compared with $10 million in the same period a year ago, primarily as a result of higher metal prices and lower operating costs. Copper and zinc production in the fourth quarter were 3,500 tonnes and 4,200 tonnes, respectively, compared with 3,300 tonnes and 5,000 tonnes, respectively, last year. Copper and zinc sales in the fourth quarter were 3,600 tonnes and 4,200 tonnes, respectively, compared with 3,800 tonnes and 7,700 tonnes, respectively, last year.

Development of the Boundary open pit will occur over the first six months of 2013 and is expected to supplement underground ore production in the second half of the year.

Duck Pond's production in 2013 is expected to be approximately 15,000 tonnes of copper and 15,000 tonnes of zinc.

Copper Development Projects

Quebrada Blanca Phase 2

During the fourth quarter detailed design of the Quebrada Blanca Phase 2 Project continued. During the quarter purchase orders for some of the long-lead equipment were issued. The estimated capital cost for the development of the project is US$5.6 billion on a 100% basis (in January 2012 dollars, not including working capital or interest during construction), of which our funding share would be US$4.8 billion. The project contemplates the construction of a 135,000 tonne per day concentrator and related facilities connected to a new port facility by 165 kilometre concentrate and desalinated water pipelines.

Work continues on the updated Social Environmental Impact Assessment ("SEIA") for the project. We currently expect to re-file the SEIA by the end of the second quarter of 2013.

Discussions are ongoing with the other shareholders of Quebrada Blanca concerning financing options for the hypogene project, which may include limited recourse project financing and, possibly, bringing in a new funding partner.

Relincho

The feasibility study for Relincho is progressing and it is expected to be complete at the end of the fourth quarter of 2013. Permitting delays have affected the progress of third-party port and power supply facilities that we expected to use for Relincho, which delayed the completion of the feasibility study. Exploration and geotechnical drilling are ongoing and a new resource and reserve estimate is expected at the completion of the feasibility study. Based on the prefeasibility design, production would average 180,000 tonnes per year of copper and 6,000 tonnes per year of molybdenum over a 22-year mine life, with higher production in the first five years.

Galore Creek (50%)

The 2012 work program, which included approximately 25,000 meters of infill and geotechnical drilling, was completed in the third quarter. Drill results are being assessed.

COAL (100%)

Operating results at the 100% level are summarized in the following table:

Three months ended Year ended December 31, December 31, 2012 2011 2012 2011----------------------------------------------------------------------------Production (000's tonnes) 6,358 6,698 24,652 22,785Sales (000's tonnes) 6,422 5,547 23,989 22,207Average sale price US$/tonne $ 159 $ 253 $ 193 $ 257 C$/tonne $ 157 $ 259 $ 194 $ 254Cost of sales (C$/tonne) Operating $ 62 $ 65 $ 72 $ 73 Transportation $ 41 $ 33 $ 37 $ 32 Depreciation and amortization $ 17 $ 20 $ 20 $ 23Gross profit summary ($ millions) Before depreciation and amortization $ 347 $ 891 $ 2,033 $ 3,306 Depreciation and amortization (107) (110) (470) (506)---------------------------------------------------------------------------- After depreciation and amortization $ 240 $ 781 $ 1,563 $ 2,800----------------------------------------------------------------------------



Gross profit before depreciation and amortization in the fourth quarter declined compared with last year due primarily to significantly lower coal prices and higher transportation unit costs, partially offset by higher sales volumes and lower mine operating unit costs.

Production in the fourth quarter decreased by 5% compared with the same quarter in 2011 primarily as a result of our decision to reduce production starting in mid-August through to the end of the year to align with customer demand. In 2012 our production capacity increased, reflecting our growth objectives with the completion of the Elkview plant expansion and additions to the mining fleet. Our current production capacity is approximately 27 million tonnes and is expected to grow to 28 million tonnes by the end of 2013. However, to align production rates with anticipated demand and to effectively manage inventories, we plan to produce 24.0 to 25.0 million tonnes of coal in 2013.

Production for the first quarter of 2013 is not expected to be materially impacted by the damage incurred in December to Berth 1 at Westshore Terminals. We will use alternative shipping options for the duration of the repairs at Westshore, including securing additional capacity through Neptune Terminals, Pacific Coast Terminals and Ridley Terminals. On the basis of Westshore's estimated repair schedule for Berth 1 and expected loading capacity for Berth 2, we expect to have total shipping capacity of approximately six million tonnes in the first quarter of 2013, although shipping capacity in the first quarter can also be affected by adverse weather conditions.

Coal sales of 6.4 million tonnes in the fourth quarter were 16% higher than the same period last year and exceeded prior guidance of 6.2 million tonnes. The average coal price of US$159 per tonne in the fourth quarter was 37% lower than the same quarter a year ago and reflects the weaker steelmaking coal market conditions. The increase in sales volume predominantly reflects strong demand for coal delivered to China, partially offset by lower demand in our traditional markets. Sales to China in the fourth quarter reached a record high level. However, the ratio of Chinese sales to total sales in 2013 is expected to decline to be similar to what was experienced in the first three quarters of 2012.

Coal sales in 2012 reached 24.0 million tonnes, an increase of 1.8 million tonnes over last year and the third highest year on record. Increased sales were achieved through continuing progress in growth markets and occurred despite weaker demand in some of our traditional markets.

Coal prices have been agreed with the majority of the quarterly contract customers for the first quarter of 2013 based on pricing of US$165 per tonne for the highest quality products, which is consistent with prices reportedly achieved by our competitors. As of the date of this release, contracted sales are approximately 6.0 million tonnes of coal for delivery in the first quarter at an average price of US$159 per tonne. We remain in quarterly contract discussions with a small number of customers and are anticipating selling additional tonnage on the spot market. Vessel nominations for quarterly contract tonnage are determined by customers and final sales and average prices for the quarter will depend on timely arrival of vessels and the performance of our coal-loading facilities.

The cost of product sold in the fourth quarter, before transportation and depreciation charges, was $62 per tonne, or $3 per tonne lower than in the same quarter in 2011, and $13 per tonne lower than the first three quarters of 2012. Cost reduction efforts at the mines, which accompanied the reduction in production levels beginning in mid-August, have been successful. Lower unit cash production costs in the fourth quarter when compared to the same period a year ago resulted from reductions in overtime, a hiring freeze, shutdowns of higher cost equipment, shutdowns on statutory holidays and reductions in the consumption of repair parts in conjunction with minimizing the use of maintenance contractors, contract miners and consultants. The current 2013 production plan indicates that cost of product sold will fall between $71 and $77 per tonne before the effects of new accounting standards on overburden removal costs. We expect our first quarter 2013 unit costs to be in the lower end of this range, assuming that we meet our sales targets for the quarter.

Transportation costs in the fourth quarter were $41 per tonne, 24% higher compared with the same quarter a year ago due to higher ocean freight, port and rail costs. Ocean freight costs this quarter increased due to a higher portion of coal being sold inclusive of ocean freight, but are expected to decline in 2013 as the proportion of total sales to China is expected to return to prior levels. Port costs rose due to an annual increase in contract rates and inflation adjustments. Rail costs increased due to lower-than-planned shipping volumes in 2012 as well as inflation adjustments. Additional costs of utilizing different coal terminals as a means of supplementing capacity during outages that occur as part of expansion programs at the ports in greater Vancouver and during the period after the Berth 1 incident at Westshore also contributed to the higher transportation costs in the fourth quarter. Transportation unit costs in 2013 are expected to fall between $36 and $40 per tonne, which takes into account inflationary adjustments where applicable and expected sales including ocean freight.

CP Rail's ongoing investment in its network, including additional rail sidings and the extension of the Elkview load out loop supported by the recent rail loop extension at Neptune Terminals, has added rail capacity for coal through longer trains. All the trains in CP export service are now running at 152 cars in length compared with an average of 126 cars in length prior to the investment, allowing more coal to be transported with fewer trains.

Depreciation and amortization declined by $3 per tonne due to the significant increase in coal reserves recorded in 2011 as a result of our drilling programs at our coal mines. Certain capital assets are depreciated on a units-of-production basis over proven and probable reserves.

The Quintette re-start project continues to progress on the basis of the study with an estimated capital cost of $858 million. The Mines Act Permit Amendment ("MAPA") application process is proceeding and we continue to expect to receive the permit approval in the first half of 2013 with first coal production expected in the first half of 2014. Early works activities, procurement of long-lead equipment and engineering, are progressing to support the project timeline. By the fourth quarter of 2014, Quintette is expected to be producing at an annualized rate of three million tonnes.

Neptune Bulk Terminals, in which we have a 46% ownership interest, is expanding its annual coal throughput capacity from 9 million tonnes to 12.5 million tonnes by the spring of 2013 with the addition of a second stacker reclaimer. Completion of the feasibility study for the next expansion phase, which may further increase capacity from 12.5 million tonnes to 18.5 million tonnes, was completed in the fourth quarter of 2012. The proposed upgrades will include a second railcar dumper and associated conveying system, a new rail track within the existing rail loop, the replacement of a ship loader and foundation reinforcement of the loading berth.

Selenium Management

Work is ongoing to develop and implement a plan for the management of selenium at all of our operating coal mines in the Elk Valley. In the course of mining, we deposit large quantities of waste rock in the valley. Water flows through that waste rock and over rock exposed during the mining process, releasing small quantities of selenium, a naturally occurring element found in the native rocks in the Elk Valley. While it is necessary for good health in humans, selenium is detrimental to fish populations at relatively low concentrations. We have commissioned extensive studies into the environmental effects of selenium. These studies have not identified population level effects on fish in the Elk Valley, but they have identified a trend of increasing selenium concentrations in the valley which is expected, in the absence of mitigation measures, to increase further as future mine expansions increase the footprint of our operations. As a result, we have devoted substantial resources to developing and implementing mitigation measures, which include water diversion works to keep clean water clean, as well as treatment facilities to remove selenium from waters affected by contact with waste rock.

Because of the scale of our operations, the substantial quantities of water involved, and the very low concentrations of selenium, identifying and implementing appropriate treatment technology is a challenge. We expect to file with regulatory authorities a draft valley-wide selenium management plan in the first quarter of 2013. This will set out an integrated approach to the construction of water diversion and treatment facilities intended to achieve acceptable selenium concentrations downstream from our mining operations. Although the plan is not yet finalized, we believe that the costs associated with installing these facilities will be substantial. Our draft plan contemplates total capital spending over the next five years of up to $600 million on the installation of water diversion and treatment facilities, and annual operating costs by the end of that period of approximately $40 million per year. Water treatment costs are expected to increase further in future periods, as additional treatment facilities are required to manage runoff from new mining areas. While the amount of those costs will depend on the technology applied to control selenium, our current estimate, assuming no substantive changes in technology, is that over the long term treatment costs could ultimately reach $140 million per year, or approximately $6 per tonne, of coal produced. We expect that water treatment will need to continue for an indefinite period after mining operations end in order to maintain water quality.

These cost estimates assume the application of biological treatment technology, which is currently being installed in the water treatment plant under construction at our Line Creek mine. We are actively investigating alternative treatment technologies with the potential to substantially reduce treatment costs. Our draft valley-wide selenium management plan also assumes that relevant regulators will agree to site-specific downstream selenium concentrations in certain aquatic environments already affected by selenium discharges from our coal mining operations in excess of those in provincial water quality guidelines. The modeling on which our valley-wide selenium management plan is based indicates that the selenium levels we are proposing for the upper Elk and Fording Rivers will result in selenium levels further downstream, including at Lake Koocanusa at the U.S. border, which comply with provincial water quality guidelines and applicable limits on selenium concentrations prescribed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA").

While we believe that there is good scientific evidence that the measures that we will propose are protective of the environment and of fish populations in the affected water bodies, and that these measures will meet our previously stated objective of reversing the trend of increasing selenium concentrations in the Elk Valley, there can be no assurance that regulatory authorities will not ultimately impose more stringent limits on selenium discharges, which could substantially increase both capital and operating costs associated with selenium management.

We expect that permitting for current and future projects may be delayed until regulatory authorities have accepted the valley-wide selenium management plan and are able to assess the cumulative effects of new projects in the context of the selenium management plan for the valley as a whole. There can be no assurance that delays in obtaining approval of our valley-wide selenium management plan will not result in consequential delays in permitting new mining areas, which would limit our ability to maintain or increase coal production in accordance with our long term plans. The potential shortfall in production may be material.

We are continuing with research and development aimed at identifying new and more cost-effective treatment technologies and are reviewing mining plans with a view to reducing the water treatment capacity required to manage selenium and the associated costs.

ZINC

Trail (100%)

Operating results at the 100% level are summarized in the following table:

Gross profit at Trail before depreciation and amortization declined from a year ago due to lower zinc production and sales volumes, lower silver prices and a stronger Canadian dollar, partially offset by higher sales volumes of silver.

Record silver production in the quarter was due to the treatment of additional silver-bearing concentrate and an increased silver refining capacity. Higher Kivcet on-line time, combined with additional lead in feeds, resulted in higher lead production compared to the same period a year ago. Zinc production in the fourth quarter was affected by poor operating performance in the zinc electrolytic cell house which resulted in a temporary build-up of in-process inventory.

Concentrate purchase costs increased in the fourth quarter compared with a year ago as a result of the purchase of an additional amount of silver bearing concentrates. Operating costs on a year-to-date basis in 2012, before the one-time labour settlement charges of $59 million for labour settlement and post-retirement benefits, rose by $24 million. This was partly due to higher manpower levels to allow for succession planning, higher wages, increased consumable costs, use of additional operating supplies and increased maintenance activity.

Construction continued on the new acid plant project with an expected start-up date in the first quarter of 2014. As part of the capital deferrals announced in October 2012, spending on the $210 million Number 4 Furnace project was deferred as major excavation and construction had not commenced and detailed engineering had yet to be completed.

Trail's production in 2013 is expected to be in the range of 280,000 to 290,000 tonnes of refined zinc, 85,000 to 90,000 tonnes of refined lead and 22 to 25 million ounces of silver.

Upper Columbia River Basin (Lake Roosevelt)

Teck American Incorporated continues studies under the 2006 settlement agreement with the U.S. EPA to conduct a remedial investigation on the Upper Columbia River in Washington State.

The Lake Roosevelt litigation involving Teck Metals Ltd. in the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Washington continues.

In September, Teck Metals entered into an agreement with the plaintiffs, agreeing that certain facts were established for purposes of the litigation. The agreement stipulates that some portion of the slag discharged from our Trail Operations into the Columbia River between 1896 and 1995, and some portion of the effluent discharged from Trail Operations, have been transported to and are present in the Upper Columbia River in the United States, and that some hazardous substances from the slag and effluent have been released into the environment within the United States. In October, the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Washington heard argument with respect to personal jurisdiction and certain legal issues with respect to CERCLA. In December the court found in favor of the plaintiffs in phase one of the case, issuing a declaratory judgement that Teck is liable under CERCLA for response costs, the amount of which will be determined in a subsequent phase of the case. TML has filed a notice of appeal with respect to the decision. The subsequent hearing, with respect to claims for natural resource damages and costs, is expected to be deferred while the remedial investigation and feasibility study being undertaken by Teck American are completed, which is currently expected to occur in 2015.

There is no assurance that we will ultimately be successful in our defense of the litigation or that we or our affiliates will not be faced with further liability in relation to this matter. Until the studies contemplated by the EPA settlement agreement and additional damage assessments are completed, it is not possible to estimate the extent and cost, if any, of remediation or restoration that may be required or to assess our potential liability for damages. The studies may conclude, on the basis of risk, cost, technical feasibility or other grounds, that no remediation should be undertaken. If remediation is required and damage to resources found, the cost of remediation may be material.

Red Dog's gross profit in the fourth quarter was similar to the same period a year ago. Higher prices and higher lead sales, comprised in part of sales deferred from the third quarter due to weather-related shipping delays, were offset by a 5% increase in the NANA royalty rate, as described below.

Mill throughput in the fourth quarter rose 17% compared with the same period a year ago as throughput in the fourth quarter of 2011 was partly affected by intermittent mill shutdowns when the new ISA mills were commissioned. Mining was exclusively from the Aqqaluk pit in the fourth quarter of 2012, versus approximately 79% in the same period a year ago, which resulted in lower ore grades.

Zinc production in the fourth quarter increased by 5% from a year ago to 142,300 tonnes as the increased mill throughput was partly offset by the lower ores grades and recoveries to manage silica levels. Lead production was 19% higher than the fourth quarter of 2011 due to improved recoveries as significantly less near-surface, weathered ore from the Aqqaluk pit was processed in the quarter.

Cost of sales rose as a result of increased lead sales volumes and partly due to timing of maintenance costs. The royalty cost increased by US$26 million reflecting the increased NANA royalty rate, which accounted for approximately one-half of the increase with the balance of the increase related to higher sales values.

In accordance with the agreements governing our development of the mine, the net proceeds of production royalty that we pay to NANA Regional Corporation Inc. increased to 30% in the fourth quarter from 25% previously.

Offsite zinc inventory available for sale from January 1, 2013 to the beginning of the 2013 shipping season totals 218,000 tonnes of contained metal. Zinc sales volumes in the first quarter of 2013 are estimated to be approximately 108,000 tonnes of contained metal. All offsite lead inventories have been sold as of the end of 2012.

Red Dog's production of contained metal in 2013 is expected to be in the range of 500,000 to 525,000 tonnes of zinc and 85,000 to 90,000 tonnes of lead.

Red Dog continues to pursue a renewal of its main water discharge permit. In January 2010, the U.S. EPA released the Aqqaluk Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement ("SEIS") and simultaneously renewed the water discharge permit for the mine under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System ("NPDES"). As a result of a third-party appeal of that permit, the conditions of the renewed permit governing effluent limitations for lead, selenium, zinc, cyanide and total dissolved solids ("TDS") were stayed pending resolution of the appeal by the Environmental Appeal Board. Those appeals have been favourably resolved (although a related court decision is the subject of further appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals) and jurisdiction over the permit has passed to the State of Alaska, which is in the process of modifying the 2010 permit to reinstate effluent limitations for lead, selenium, zinc, cyanide and TDS. We expect that a modified permit will be issued in 2013. Nonetheless, there can be no assurance that further appeals or permit uncertainty will not give rise to liability or impede mining activities, or that permit conditions that are ultimately issued will not impose significant costs on the Red Dog operation.

ENERGY

Fort Hills Project

Engineering studies are ongoing to update the design basis for the project and improve the accuracy of cost estimates to facilitate a project sanction decision by the partners in 2013. Suncor, operator of Fort Hills, has indicated that it is developing a cost-driven construction schedule and as a result, should the partners approve the sanction of Phase One of the Fort Hills project in 2013, production would not be expected to start before 2017.

Our share of 2012 Fort Hills spending, including our ongoing earn-in commitments, was $122 million compared with our previous guidance of $220 million. Spending decreased in 2012 due to the focus on developing the cost-driven project schedule. Our share of 2013 Fort Hills spending is estimated at approximately $290 million.

Frontier Project

The Frontier project has been designed for up to four production lines with a total capacity of approximately 277,000 barrels per day of bitumen. The first two production lines are planned to have a production capacity of 159,000 barrels per day.

Provincial and federal regulatory agencies completed their initial review of the Frontier project application and provided supplemental information requests in July 2012. We completed preparing responses to these information requests in late 2012 and filed these responses with the provincial and federal regulatory agencies in January 2013. The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency estimates the federal review schedule for the Frontier project application to be approximately two years. When time to respond to information requests is included, 2015 is the earliest an approval decision and receipt of required permits is expected.

A field exploration program is being planned for 2013 to acquire additional resource definition and geotechnical information to assist in future engineering studies.

There is no certainty that it will be commercially viable to produce any portion of our contingent bitumen resources.

Wintering Hills Wind Power Facility

During 2012, our share of the power generation from Wintering Hills was 88 GWh. Expected power generation in 2013 is dependent on weather conditions and the anticipated 85 to 90 GWhs of power to be generated will result in approximately 55,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent offsets.

OTHER COST AND EXPENSES

Other operating expense, net of other income, was $54 million in the fourth quarter compared with $117 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Fourth quarter expenses in 2012 included $20 million of negative price adjustments and $23 million of share-based compensation, which is larger than usual as a result of our increased share price in the period. Other expenses in the fourth quarter of 2011 included $27 million of share-based compensation, $30 million of asset write-downs and $33 million of provisions for our closed properties.

The table below outlines our outstanding receivable positions, which were provisionally valued at September 30, 2012 and our receivable positions provisionally valued at, December 31, 2012.

Financing expenses were $118 million in the fourth quarter compared with $169 million a year ago. The debt interest component of our financing expense decreased to $95 million from $124 million in the fourth quarter of last year due to the lower interest rates on the new notes issued pursuant to our debt refinancing partly offset by higher average debt levels.

Non-operating expense, net of income, includes items that arise from financial and other matters and includes such items as foreign exchange, debt refinancing costs, realized gains or losses on marketable securities and gains and losses on the revaluation of fixed price call options on certain of our high-yield notes. In the fourth quarter of 2012, our non-operating expense was $314 million, which was primarily comprised of a $313 million charge ($259 million after-tax) on the redemption of the final portion of our high-yield notes. This compares with $81 million of non-operating income, net of expenses, in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Income and resource taxes for the quarter were $66 million, or 30% of pre-tax profit, which is higher than the Canadian statutory income tax rate of 25%. This is due mainly to the effect of resource taxes and higher tax rates in foreign jurisdictions, and the loss on redemption of our high-yield notes that was not fully tax deductible. Offsetting this were the settlement of tax appeals and adjustments to our provision for foreign withholding taxes based on our reinvestment plans. The tax rate on our adjusted profit was 35% in both the quarter and on a year-to-date basis. We are currently shielded from cash income taxes, but not resource taxes in Canada. We remain subject to cash taxes in foreign jurisdictions.

OPERATING CASH FLOW, FINANCIAL POSITION AND LIQUIDITY

Cash flow from operations, before changes in non-cash working capital items, was $722 million in the fourth quarter compared with $1.2 billion a year ago, with the reduction primarily a result of the effect of significantly lower coal prices in the period.

Changes in non-cash working capital items contributed $74 million of cash in the fourth quarter compared with a use of cash of $49 million in the same period a year ago. The decrease in working capital was due to the seasonal drawdown of Red Dog's product inventories.

Expenditures on property, plant and equipment were $608 million in the fourth quarter and included $225 million on sustaining capital and $383 million on major development projects. The largest component of sustaining expenditures was $75 million at our coal operations. Major development expenditures included $102 million at Highland Valley Copper for the mill modernization project, $95 million at the Quebrada Blanca hypogene project, $25 million at Relincho, $19 million for Antamina's expansion, $36 million for Quintette and $48 million at our existing coal operations to incrementally expand production.

We have committed and unused bank credit facilities aggregating $1.1 billion, the majority of which mature in 2016.

On November 19, we redeemed all US$521 million principal amount of our outstanding 10.75% senior notes due in 2019. We recorded an after-tax charge of US$259 million in the fourth quarter in connection with the redemption. After this redemption the average coupon rate on our outstanding notes is 4.8% with an average term to maturity of 16.5 years. We have now retired all of our high-yield debt and we do not expect any further significant charges on debt retirement. As a result of our debt refinancing transactions, our debt due in the next three years is approximately US$325 million.

During the quarter we purchased for cancellation approximately 3.8 million Class B subordinate voting shares for $123 million pursuant to our normal course issuer bid announced in June 2012.

OUTLOOK

We continue to experience volatile markets for our products. Commodity markets have historically been volatile, prices can change rapidly and customers can alter shipment plans. This can have a substantial impact on our business. Ongoing economic uncertainties in Europe and the United States and less robust growth rates in China, India and other emerging markets have impacted both demand and prices for some of our products. We believe that the medium to longer term fundamentals for steelmaking coal are quite favorable, although, the recent weakness in the seaborne steelmaking coal market is expected to persist for at least the first half of 2013. Markets for copper remain steady while zinc markets have shown some weakness. In the meantime, the Company's financial position is strong and we continuously monitor all aspects of our key markets as conditions evolve in order to be in a position to take whatever actions may be appropriate.

Commodity Prices and 2013 Production

Commodity prices are a key driver of our profit. On the supply side, the depleting nature of ore reserves, difficulties in finding new ore bodies, the permitting processes, the availability of skilled resources to develop projects, as well as infrastructure constraints, political risk and significant cost inflation may continue to have a moderating impact on the growth in future production. Although we are concerned about current global economic conditions, we believe that, over the longer term, the industrialization of emerging market economies will continue to be a major positive factor in the future demand for commodities. Therefore, we believe that the long-term price environment for the products that we produce and sell remains favourable.

Based on our expected 2013 mid-range production estimates and a Canadian/U.S. dollar exchange rate of $1.00, the sensitivity of our annual profit attributable to shareholders to the indicated changes in commodity prices, before pricing adjustments and the U.S. dollar exchange rate is as follows:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2013 Mid-Range Effect of Production Change Effect on Estimates Change On Profit EBITDA----------------------------------------------------------------------------Coal (000's tonnes) 24,500 US$1/tonne $ 16 million $ 25 millionCopper (tonnes) 350,000 US$0.01/lb $ 4 million $ 7 millionZinc (tonnes) 860,000 US$0.01/lb $ 7 million $ 11 millionUS$ exchange Cdn$0.01 $ 45 million $ 70 million----------------------------------------------------------------------------1. The effect on our profit attributable to shareholders of commodity price and exchange rate movements will vary from quarter to quarter depending on sales volumes.2. Zinc includes 285,000 tonnes of refined zinc and 575,000 tonnes of zinc contained in concentrates.3. All production estimates are subject to change based on market and operating conditions.



Foreign exchange translation gains and losses on our U.S. dollar denominated debt arising from exchange rate fluctuations are not expected to have a significant effect on our 2013 profit, as our debt level is expected to be designated as a hedge against our investments in U.S. dollar denominated foreign operations and working capital items.

Copper and zinc prices, to date in 2013, are trading similar to 2012 average prices. Coal market conditions softened in the third quarter and remained lower through the fourth quarter. The fluctuations in the Canadian/U.S. dollar exchange rate can have a significant effect on our profit and financial position. The Canadian dollar, to date in 2013, has averaged approximately $1.00 against the US dollar compared with $1.00 in 2012.

Our copper production for 2013 is expected to be in the range of 340,000 to 360,000 tonnes compared with 373,000 tonnes produced in 2012. The lower expected production is a result of declining production from Quebrada Blanca and lower ore grades at Highland Valley Copper.

Our coal production in 2013 is expected to be in the range of 24.0 to 25.0 million tonnes. Our actual production will depend primarily on customer demand for deliveries of steelmaking coal. Depending on market conditions and the sales outlook, we may adjust our production plans. We have the flexibility to devote additional resources to pre-stripping in these circumstances. Our current production capacity is approximately 27 million tonnes and is expected to grow to 28 million tonnes by the end of 2013.

Our zinc in concentrate production in 2013 is expected to be in the range of 560,000 to 590,000 tonnes compared with 598,000 tonnes in 2012 as Red Dog's production is expected to decrease by approximately 15,000 tonnes. Refined zinc production from our Trail metallurgical complex in 2013 is expected to be in the range of 280,000 to 290,000 tonnes compared with 284,200 tonnes in 2012.

Capital Expenditures

Our forecast of approved capital expenditures for 2013 is expected to be approximately $2.0 billion and is summarized in the following table:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Major New Mine($ in millions) Sustaining Enhancement Development Total----------------------------------------------------------------------------Copper $ 265 $ 360 $ 530 $ 1,155Coal 265 80 120 465Zinc 195 20 - 215Energy - - 110 110Corporate 20 - - 20---------------------------------------------------------------------------- $ 745 $ 460 $ 760 $ 1,965----------------------------------------------------------------------------



These amounts do not include expenditures on mine development projects which have not received board approval and which are expected to be incurred should those projects proceed. In addition, we expect to capitalize additional overburden removal work at operating mines under the provisions of new accounting standards (IFRIC 20) as they come into effect in 2013.

We also expect to invest approximately $290 million in 2013 for our share of costs for the Fort Hills oil sands project, which is accounted for as an investment.

Major enhancement projects in 2013 includes: $310 million for Highland Valley's mill optimization project, $25 million for the completion of the Antamina mill expansion; and $80 million at our coal operations, which includes $50 million for the Neptune Terminals expansion. New mine development in 2013 includes $450 million for Quebrada Blanca Phase II, $70 million for Relincho, $120 million for Quintette and $110 million for our Frontier oil sands project.

The amount and timing of actual capital expenditures is also dependent upon being able to secure permits, equipment, supplies, materials and labour on a timely basis and at expected costs to enable the projects to be completed as currently anticipated. We may change capital spending plans for the balance of this year and next, depending on commodity markets, our financial position, results of feasibility studies and other factors.

Foreign Exchange and Debt Revaluation

The sales of our products are denominated in U.S. 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 U.S. dollar denominated debt is subject to revaluation based on changes in the Canadian/U.S. dollar exchange rate. As at December 31, 2012, all of our U.S. dollar denominated debt is designated as a hedge against our U.S. dollar denominated foreign operations and working capital items. As a result, any foreign exchange gains or losses arising on our designated U.S. dollar debt are recorded in other comprehensive income.

FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND DERIVATIVES

We hold a number of financial instruments and derivatives, which are recorded on our balance sheet at fair value with gains and losses in each period included in other comprehensive income and profit for the period as appropriate. The most significant of these instruments are marketable securities, foreign exchange forward sales contracts, metal-related forward contracts and settlements receivable and payable. 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.
