Sustainability Strategy in Action Supporting Alternative Energy Education Teck partnered with education ministry on renewable energy education program in public schools Students learn to install and maintain solar and wind power systems Local teachers are trained to deliver the renewable energy courses
Sustainability Strategy in Action Using Seawater to Address a Water Challenge Water availability is a challenge for two of our development projects in Chile Teck plans to use desalinated water for these proposed operations Significant infrastructure required to pump water over 100 kilometers from the coast
Teck in Latin America Chile: Quebrada Blanca (Copper) Carmen de Andacollo (Copper) Peru: Antamina (Copper-Zinc) Development Projects: Quebrada Blanca Phase 2 (Chile) Relincho (Chile)
Chile: Quebrada Blanca 9 Located at an elevation of 4,400 metres. Produced 56,200 tonnes of copper cathode in 2013 Mine life anticipated to extend to approximately 2020.
Chile: Carmen de Andacollo 10 Located 350 kilometres north of Santiago. Produced 76,800 tonnes of copper concentrate in % of mine personnel live in the town of Andacollo or nearby cities.
Peru: Antamina Located in the Ancash region of Peru, 270 km north of Lima Produced 443,000 tonnes of copper in 2013 Four key partners to finance, leverage expertise, reduce risk at Antamina. 11
Quebrada Blanca Phase 2 12 Aims to increase Quebrada Blanca’s copper annual production by more than 100%, to approximately 200,000 tonnes. Projected to extend the mine’s production life by more than 30 years.
13 Chile: Relincho Project Located in central Chile, approximately 110 kilometres east of the port city of Huasco. Estimated production of 207,000 tonnes per year of copper. No significant activities planned for Relincho in 2014 due to market conditions.
14 Summary Attractive portfolio of long- life assets in Latin America. Focusing on improving efficiency and furthering our permitting. Working with partners, including communities, government, and industry peers.
