    Thompson Creek Metals expects higher molybdenum production costs
    NEW YORK (Metal-Pages) 14-Apr-09

    Thompson Creek Metals (TCM) has raised its estimated cash costs to produce molybdenum this year due to recent reductions in planned mine output.

    The company projects that cash costs at the Thompson Creek mine in Idaho, USA, will be in a range of $ 7-8/lb in 2009,
    a 36% increase from from an earlier projection of $ 5-6/lb. The forecast assumes stripping costs of about $ 40 million.
    The mine’s 2007 average cash costs were $ 7.75/lb (and only $ 6.30/lb for the fourth quarter), an improvement from 2007 costs of $ 10.91/lb.
    The 2009 cash cost forecast for the Endako mine in British Columbia, Canada, is unchanged at $ 8-9/lb. The mine’s cash costs in 2008 were $ 7.15/lb (and fell as low as $ 5.54/lb in the fourth quarter), compared with 2007 costs of $ 8.89/lb.

    Average combined cash costs also turned out to be somewhat higher in 2008 than initially forecast, the company revealed in its annual report, which was released last week.
    Actual combined cash costs last year totaled $ 7.52/lb, up from the company’s original forecast of $ 7.30/lb but much-improved from $ 10.03/lb in 2007.
    The Canadian miner now says combined cash production costs for both of its operating mines will average $ 7.25-8.25/lb, a 19% increase on average from the company’s late-2008 projection that costs would average $ 6-7/lb.
    The revised anticipated cash costs for 2009 are perilously close to break-even levels for both mines.

    US spot prices for delivered molybdenum oxide, as assessed by Metal-Pages, have been falling steadily for most of this year to date and are currently in a range of $ 7.80-8.10/lb.

    TCM in January reduced planned production levels for its mines due to falling molybdenum demand. Recently the company also announced a temporary shutdown of both mines for approximately one month at some point in the third quarter. The company has not ruled out further production cuts if prices continue to fall.

    TCM currently plans to sell 20-24 million lbs of molybdenum mined from its own operations this year. The company’s 2008 sales from its own mines totaled 22.3 million lbs.
    The company also expects to make outside purchases of only 3-4 million lbs of molybdenum for resale this year compared with 10.7 million lbs in 2008 and 11.5 million lbs in 2007.

    NYSE: TC
    TSX: TCM, TCM.WT
    Frankfurt: A6R


    TORONTO, May 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -


    Overview (all in U.S. dollars):
    - Molybdenum production in the first quarter of 2009 was 6.1 million
    pounds, up from 5.6 million pounds in the same period a year earlier.
    The first-quarter production level was in line with current
    production plans for the year.
    - Weighted-average cash costs were reduced to $5.93 per pound produced
    in the first quarter from $8.29 per pound a year earlier.
    - 2009 guidance for cash costs has been revised to $6.25 to $7.25 per
    pound from previous guidance of $7.25 to $8.25 per pound. Production
    and sales guidance remains unchanged at 20 to 24 million pounds for
    the year.
    - Operating cash flows were $44.7 million in the first quarter,
    compared with $63.4 million a year earlier.
    - Total debt was reduced to $16.9 million on March 31, 2009 from
    $17.3 million on December 31, 2008. Total cash, cash equivalents and
    short-term investments at March 31, 2009 were $260.6 million,
    compared with $258 million on December 31, 2008.
    - First-quarter net income was $11.2 million or $0.09 per basic and
    diluted common share, compared with $46.8 million or $0.41 per basic
    and $0.37 per diluted common share in the first quarter of 2008.
    - The decline in net income was due primarily to a 69% reduction in the
    average realized price on molybdenum and upgraded product sales to
    $10.14 per pound in the first quarter from $32.69 per pound a year
    earlier, which resulted in a year-over-year decrease in revenues to
    $78.9 million from $254.8 million.

    Note: A conference call and webcast for analysts and investors is
    scheduled for Friday, May 8, 2009 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern.


    Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc. ("the Company"), one of the world's largest publicly traded, pure molybdenum producers, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2009 prepared in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles. All dollar amounts are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated.

    "Thompson Creek's mine production during the first quarter of 2009 was consistent with our current plans to produce 20 to 24 million pounds of molybdenum in 2009," said Kevin Loughrey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

    "However, the reduction in molybdenum production costs exceeded expectations and as a result we have lowered our 2009 estimated range for cash production costs to $6.25 to $7.25 per pound from previous guidance of $7.25 to $8.25 per pound.

    "While overall the molybdenum market continues to experience weaker conditions than it did for most of last year, we are encouraged by the upturn in price in the past two weeks and we continue to expect a sustained recovery in molybdenum demand and prices in the medium-term future as the world economy recovers from recession," Mr. Loughrey stated.

    "Given our strong cash position and recent actions to reduce production and conserve cash, Thompson Creek is well positioned not only to weather additional market weakness should it occur but also to raise production again relatively quickly when demand recovers and to consider possible acquisitions that will benefit shareholders."


    First-Quarter Financial Results


    The Company's revenues declined by 69% to $78.9 million in the first quarter of 2009 from $254.8 million a year earlier primarily due to a 69% decline in the average realized price for molybdenum and upgraded products to $10.14 per pound from $32.69 per pound. Sales volume was slightly lower at 7.5 million pounds in the latest quarter versus 7.7 million pounds a year earlier.

    After the deduction of operating, selling, marketing, depreciation, depletion and accretion costs, the Company generated income from mining and processing operations totaling $12 million the first quarter, down from $77.3 million a year earlier.

    Net income was $11.2 million or $0.09 per basic and diluted common share, compared with $46.8 million or $0.41 per basic and $0.37 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2008.

    The per-share figures are based on a weighted-average number of shares outstanding of 122.3 million (basic and diluted) in the first quarter of 2009, compared with 113.5 million (basic) and 127.7 million (diluted) in the first quarter of 2008. At May 6, 2009, there were 122.5 million common shares, 24.5 million warrants and 8.5 million employee options outstanding.

    First-quarter cash flow from operating activities was $44.7 million, compared with $63.4 million a year earlier.

    Capital expenditures totaled $18.7 million in the first quarter of 2009, comprised of $14.9 million of sustaining capital expenditures and $3.8 million for the Company's 75% share of capital expenditures for the Endako mill expansion.

    Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $260.6 million at March 31, 2009, compared with $258 million at December 31, 2008.

    The Company's total debt (primarily equipment loans) on March 31, 2009 was $16.9 million, down from $17.3 million on December 31, 2008.


    Selected Consolidated Operations Information

    Three months ended
    March 31,
    ---------------------------
    2009 2008

    Operations

    Molybdenum production from mines (000's lb)(1) 6,057 5,589

    Cash cost ($/lb produced)(2) $ 5.93 $ 8.29

    (1) Mined production pounds are molybdenum oxide and high performance
    molybdenum disulfide ("HPM") from the Corporation's share of the
    production from the mines; excludes molybdenum processed from
    purchased product.

    (2) Weighted-average of Thompson Creek Mine and Endako Mine cash costs
    (mining, milling, roasting and packaging) for molybdenum oxide and
    HPM produced in the period, including all stripping costs. Cash cost
    excludes: the effect of purchase price adjustments, the effects of
    changes in inventory, and depreciation, depletion, amortization and
    accretion. The cash cost for Thompson Creek, which only produces
    sulfide on site, includes an estimated molybdenum loss and an
    allocation of roasting and packaging costs from the Langeloth
    facility.


    The Company's mines produced 6.1 million pounds of molybdenum in the first quarter, up from 5.6 million pounds in the first quarter of 2008. The Thompson Creek Mine produced 4.4 million pounds, up from 3.6 million pounds a year earlier, while the Company's 75% share of the Endako Mine's production was 1.7 million, compared with 2 million pounds a year earlier.

    The weighted-average cash costs were $5.93 per pound produced in the first quarter of 2009, compared with $8.29 per pound produced a year earlier. The decline was primarily due to increased production as a result of higher ore grades and recoveries at the Thompson Creek Mine together with lower mining and milling costs from both of the Company's mines in the latest quarter compared to the 2008 quarter. The cash costs include production costs for the mining, milling, roasting and packaging of molybdenum oxide and high-performance molybdenum disulfide (HPM) and deferred stripping costs (mining costs related to future planned production phases).

    At the Thompson Creek Mine, cash costs in the first quarter were $5.83 per pound produced (including deferred stripping costs of $1.67 per pound produced), compared with $8.76 per pound produced (including deferred stripping costs of $0.77 per pound produced) a year earlier. The Endako Mine's cash costs were $6.17 per pound produced, compared with $7.41 per pound produced a year earlier. There were no deferred stripping costs at Endako.


    Outlook


    Molybdenum prices declined gradually during the first quarter of 2009, falling in 11 of the first 13 weeks of the year. The monthly Platts Metals Week published molybdenum oxide price averaged $8.94 per pound during the quarter. For the month of April 2009, this published price declined further to an average $7.90 per pound. The published Platts Metals Week price on April 30, 2009 was a range of $8.30 to $8.80 per pound.

    Based on market trends experienced in the January to April period, the Company expects its average realized price to be lower in the second quarter than in the first quarter of 2009. Additionally, the Company's sales volumes are expected to be less during the 2009 second quarter as the Company continues its efforts to match production with the anticipated level of sales.

    For 2009, previous guidance for molybdenum production levels of 20 to 24 million pounds remains unchanged. Expected production from the Thompson Creek Mine is 15 to 17 million pounds (unchanged from previous guidance), and the Company's 75% share of Endako Mine's expected production is 5 to 7 million pounds (unchanged from previous guidance).

    Given the lower cash cost per pound produced for the 2009 first quarter, the anticipated average cash cost per pound produced in 2009 has been revised to an estimated $6.25 to $7.25 per pound (compared to previous guidance of $7.25 to $8.25 per pound), with the Thompson Creek Mine expected to be approximately $6.00 to $7.00 per pound (compared to previous guidance of $7.00 to $8.00 per pound) and the Endako Mine at an estimated cash cost of $7.00 to $8.00 per pound (compared to previous guidance of $8.00 to $9.00 per pound). This assumes a US$/Cdn$ exchange rate of 1.20 for the last nine months of 2009.

    The revised 2009 Thompson Creek Mine cash cost per pound produced includes approximately $30 million of stripping costs, amounting to $1.75 to $2.00 per pound produced (compared to previous guidance of $40 million of stripping costs or $2.30 to $2.60 per pound produced) related to future planned production phases. The 2009 Endako Mine operating plan has minimal stripping costs.

    The decline in the expected cash cost per pound produced was primarily due to the result of favorable foreign exchange rates in the first quarter of 2009 (converting Cdn$ costs to US$ costs) and lower mining and milling costs, including lower grinding media, consumables and electrical power costs together with lower equipment maintenance costs.

    For 2009, the Company's share of estimated sustaining capital expenditures at both mines and the Langeloth Metallurgical Facility is expected to be $38 million and its 75% share of the estimated Endako mill expansion capital expenditures is expected to be $22 million.

    Due to the slowing demand for molybdenum and sharp decline in molybdenum prices in the 2008 fourth quarter, the Endako mill expansion project was postponed until economic conditions improve. Through March 31, 2009, the Company's 75% share of Endako expansion capital expenditures was $47.1 million. The Company's remaining commitment for capital spending on this project while it is postponed is $18.2 million in the last nine months of 2009 and $18 million in 2010.

    The Company's 2009 sales of molybdenum produced from its own mines are expected to be 20 to 24 million pounds, with additional sales of molybdenum purchased, processed and resold in 2009 expected to be 3 to 4 million pounds.

    The Company believes the long-term outlook for its business is positive. The Company is positioned to react quickly to further changes in the molybdenum market in order to ensure that working capital levels are maintained. Operating cash flows will be impacted by approximately $20 to $24 million for every $1.00 per pound change in the molybdenum price.

    Additional information on the Company's financial position is available in Thompson Creek's Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis for the period ended March 31, 2009, which will be filed with SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and posted on the Company's website (www.thompsoncreekmetals.com).

    Thompson Creek Announces Changes To 2009 Operating Plans

    Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc. ("Company"), one of the world's largest publicly traded, pure molybdenum producers, today announced changes to its 2009 estimates for molybdenum sales, molybdenum production and cash production costs.

    "In response to the recent improvements in the molybdenum market, the Company is making operational adjustments at its mines that will result in molybdenum production and sales in 2009 being approximately 10% higher than previously announced estimates," said Kevin Loughrey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

    "These operational adjustments include the shortening of the planned shutdown period this summer to two weeks from one month for the milling operations at the Thompson Creek and Endako mines.

    "We will continue for the time being with the other main production adjustment we announced in February 2009, namely the reduction in the Thompson Creek mill operation to 70% of capacity (a 10 days on, four days off schedule). However, we will be monitoring market conditions and we intend to remain flexible and ready to adjust our production again in the future."

    The Company now expects production and sales of molybdenum from its own mines will be in a range of 22 to 26 million pounds in 2009, up from previous guidance of 20 to 24 million pounds.

    Molybdenum production at the Thompson Creek Mine is expected to be 16 to 18 million pounds (compared to previous guidance of 15 to 17 million pounds) and the Company's 75% share of production at the Endako Mine is now estimated at 6 to 8 million pounds (compared to previous guidance of 5 to 7 million pounds).

    The Company's 2009 cash production costs are currently estimated in the range of $5.75 to $7.00 per pound of molybdenum produced, down from a previously estimated range of $6.25 to $7.25 per pound, with costs at the Thompson Creek Mine expected to be approximately $5.50 to $6.50 per pound (compared to previous guidance of $6.00 to $7.00 per pound) and costs at the Endako Mine expected to be approximately $6.50 to $7.50 per pound (compared to previous guidance of $7.00 to $8.00 per pound). This assumes a US$/Cdn$ exchange rate of 1.15 (compared to previous guidance of 1.20).

    The revised 2009 Thompson Creek Mine cash production costs include approximately $30 million of stripping costs related to future planned production phases, amounting to $1.65 to $1.90 per pound produced (compared to previous guidance of $1.75 to $2.00 per pound produced). The 2009 Endako Mine operating plan has minimal stripping costs. All costs estimates are in U.S. dollars.

    Mr. Loughrey is scheduled to make a presentation at 11 a.m. Eastern on Tuesday, June 9, 2009, to investors attending RBC Capital Markets' 2009 Global Mining and Materials Conference in Toronto. A webcast of the presentation will be available at www.thompsoncreekmetals.com and also at http://www.wsw.com/webcast/rbc109/tcm.to/.

    Thompson Creek Announces Second-Quarter 2009 Financial Results And Resumption Of Endako Expansion Project

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Overview (all in U.S. dollars):

    - Molybdenum production rose by 9.8% to 6.7 million pounds in the second quarter of 2009 from 6.1 million pounds in the first quarter.
    - Weighted-average cash costs in the second quarter were reduced by 12.1% to $5.21 per pound produced from $5.93 per pound in the first quarter.
    - 2009 guidance remains unchanged for molybdenum production and sales at 22 to 26 million pounds and for cash costs at $5.75 to $7.00 per pound.
    - Total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments at June 30, 2009 were $262 million, compared with $260.6 million on March 31, 2009. Total debt was reduced to $15.6 million on June 30, 2009 from $16.9 million on March 31, 2009.
    - Average realized price on molybdenum and upgraded product sales declined to $9.41 per pound in the second quarter from $10.14 per pound in the first quarter, although due to recent developments in the molybdenum market, the Company expects its average realized price to be higher in the second half of 2009.
    - Income from mining and processing operations rose to $15.3 million in the second quarter from $12 million in the first quarter. However, due primarily to a foreign exchange loss, the Company recorded a net loss in the second quarter of $0.4 million or $0.00 per basic and diluted common share, compared with net income of $11.2 million or $0.09 per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of 2009.
    - The Board of Directors has approved the resumption of the Endako mill expansion project. As a result, the Company's estimate of 2009 total capital expenditures has been revised upward to $80 million from previous guidance of $60 million.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc. ("Company"), one of the world's largest publicly traded, pure molybdenum producers, today announced the appointment of S. Scott Shellhaas as Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

    The appointment follows the decision by the Company to close the Vancouver, British Columbia office requiring the Chief Operating Officer to work out of its principal executive offices in Denver, Colorado. As previously announced on June 5, 2009, Ken Collison, the Company's former Chief Operating Officer, who was working in the Vancouver office, had chosen not to relocate to Denver. Mr. Collison will remain with the Company for the coming months as Operations Consultant and continue to work on specific projects.
