THOMPSON CREEK ANNOUNCES RECORD PRODUCTION AND SALES VOLUMES FOR FISCAL 201017:35 EST Thursday, February 24, 2011NYSE: TCTSX: TCM, TCM.WTTSX-V:TRX.WT, TRX.WT.ARevenue up 59% to $594.8 millionNet income was $113.7 millionCash flow from operations increased 49% to $157.4 millionDENVER, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc. ("Company" or "Thompson Creek"), a growing, diversified North American mining company, today announced financial results for the three months and full year ended December 31, 2010, prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("US GAAP"). All dollar amounts are in United States ("US") dollars unless otherwise indicated. Financial Highlights:  FourthQuarter 2010 Full Year2010 Revenue (millions)$     156.8$     594.8Net Income/(Loss) (millions)$     (45.0)$     113.7Net Income/(Loss) Per Share   Basic   Diluted $     (0.28)$     (0.28) $       0.79$       0.75Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (millions)$       34.4$     163.3Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income Per Share   Basic   Diluted $       0.22$       0.20 $       1.13$       1.07Molybdenum Production (millions)  9.3        32.6 Average Cash Cost Per Pound Produced ($/lb)$       5.81$       6.07Molybdenum Sold - TC & Endako Mined Product (millions)7.6        29.1Average Realized Molybdenum Price ($/lb)$     16.05$     15.67Cash Flow from Operations (millions)$       31.6$     157.4Capital Costs (millions)$       66.4$     213.7Cash, Cash Equivalents and Short-Term Investments as of December 31, 2010 (millions)$     316.0     $     316.0"Thompson Creek's 2010 financial performance was greatly improved from a year earlier mainly as a result of increased production, sales volumes and molybdenum prices," said Kevin Loughrey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The Company produced a record 32.6 million pounds of molybdenum in 2010, and sold a record 29.1 million pounds of molybdenum from its mines for an average realized molybdenum sales price for the year of $15.67, up 39% from $11.28 in 2009.  We anticipate that over the balance of 2011 the price for molybdenum oxide will continue to be volatile, but will gradually increase with the expected improvement in worldwide molybdenum bearing steel production," said Mr. Loughrey.Fourth Quarter Financial ResultsRevenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 was $156.8 million, up 48% from $106.2 million for the same period in 2009.  The increase in revenue was primarily due to an increase in molybdenum sales volumes and a higher average realized sales price for molybdenum in the fourth quarter of $16.05 per pound, up 30% from $12.37 per pound for the same period in 2009.Net Loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 was $45.0 million, or $0.28 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $26.0 million, or $0.19 per basic and $0.18 per diluted share for the same period in 2009.  Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2010 included a non-cash unrealized loss on common share purchase warrants of $79.4 million, or $0.50 per basic and $0.47 per diluted share, and net income for the fourth quarter of 2009 included a non-cash unrealized gain on common stock purchase warrants of $5.6 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share.Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 (excluding the non-cash unrealized loss on the warrants) was $34.4 million, or $0.22 per basic and $0.20 per diluted share.   Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2009 (excluding the non-cash unrealized gain on warrants) was $20.4 million, or $0.15 per basic and $0.14 per diluted share.The Company's financial performance continues to be affected by the previously disclosed requirement under US GAAP to account for the Company's outstanding common stock warrants as a derivative liability, with changes in the fair market value recorded in net income (loss). During the fourth quarter of 2010, the value of the outstanding warrants (and the Company's reported derivative liability) increased by $79.4 million, resulting in a non-cash loss of the same amount. Excluding the non-cash loss related to the warrants, the Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $34.4 million, or $0.22 per basic and $0.20 per diluted share.  Additionally, the Terrane warrants that continue to remain outstanding were also accounted for under US GAAP as a derivative liability.  The non-cash unrealized loss on common share purchase warrants of $79.4 million included a $6.7 million loss related to the Terrane warrants. Molybdenum Production for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 was 9.3 million pounds, up 48% from 6.3 million pounds in the fourth quarter of 2009.  The increase in production was primarily due to a significantly higher grade of ore from the Thompson Creek mine.Average Cash Cost Per Pound Produced for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 was $5.81 per pound, compared to $6.61 per pound for the same period in 2009. The decrease in average cash cost per pound was primarily due to higher production resulting from a significantly higher grade of ore from the Thompson Creek mine.Cash Flow From Operations for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 was $31.6 million, compared to $38.2 million for the same period in 2009.Capital Costs incurredfor the quarter ended December 31, 2010 were $76.5 million, comprised of $45.2 million of capital costs for the Company's 75% share of capital costs for the Endako mill expansion project, $15.9 million of capital costs for the mines, the Langeloth facility and Corporate, and $15.4 million of capital costs for Mt. Milligan.  The capital costs for the fourth quarter of 2010 included a change in accrual of $10.1 million; therefore, capital expenditures for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $66.4 million.Total Cash, Cash Equivalents and Short-Term Investments at December 31, 2010 were $316.0 million, compared to $511.5 million as of December 31, 2009.  Total debt as of December 31, 2010 was $22.0 million, compared to $12.9 million as of December 31, 2009. Full Year 2010 Financial ResultsRevenue for 2010 was $594.8 million, up 59% from $373.4 million for 2009.  The increase in revenue was primarily due to a 15% increase in molybdenum pounds sold and a higher average realized sales price for 2010 of $15.67 per pound, up 39% from $11.28 per pound in 2009.Net Income for 2010 was $113.7 million or $0.79 per basic and $0.75 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $56.0 million, or $0.44 per basic and diluted share for 2009.  Net income for 2010 included a non-cash unrealized loss on common share purchase warrants of $49.6 million, or $0.34 per basic and $0.33 per diluted share, and net loss for 2009 included a non-cash unrealized loss on common stock purchase warrants of $93.4 million, or $0.73 per basic and $0.72 per diluted share.Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income for 2010 (excluding the non-cash unrealized loss on the warrants) was $163.3 million, or $1.13 per basic and $1.07 per diluted share.   Non-GAAP adjusted net income for 2009 (excluding the non-cash unrealized gain on warrants) was $37.4 million, or $0.29 per basic and diluted share.Molybdenum Production for 2010 was a record 32.6 million pounds, up 29% from 25.3 million pounds in 2009.  The increase in production was primarily due to a significantly higher grade of ore from the Thompson Creek mine.Average Cash Cost Per Pound Produced for 2010 was $6.07 per pound, compared to $5.84 per pound in 2009, primarily due to increased operating costs at the Endako mine due to higher mining and milling costs. Cash Flow From Operations for 2010 was $157.4 million, up 49% from $105.9 million in 2009.Capital Costs incurredfor the quarter ended December 31, 2010 were $76.5 million, comprised of $45.2 million of capital costs for the Company's 75% share of capital costs for the Endako mill expansion project, $15.9 million of capital costs for the mines, the Langeloth facility and Corporate, and $15.4 million of capital costs for Mt. Milligan.  The capital costs for the fourth quarter of 2010 included a change in accrual of $10.1 million; therefore, capital expenditures for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $66.4 million.Selected Consolidated Financial and Operational Information Three Months ended December 31,Years endedDecember 31,(US$ in millions except per share and per pound amounts) 20102009201020092008 (unaudited)   Financial     Revenue       Molybdenum sales $152.0$103.3$578.6$361.9$992.2  Tolling, calcining and other 4.82.916.211.519.2 156.8106.2594.8373.41,011.4Costs and expenses        Cost of sales       Operating expenses 75.668.1315.5241.3557.4  Depreciation, depletion and amortization 14.311.449.943.440.0            Total cost of sales89.979.5365.4284.7597.4  Selling and marketing 2.11.67.76.210.1  Accretion expense 0.30.41.51.41.7  General and administrative 5.97.523.525.137.9  Acquisition costs 8.6—12.9——  Exploration 2.61.49.46.38.0Total costs and expenses 109.490.4420.4323.7655.1Operating income 47.415.8174.449.7356.3Other (income) expenses 79.4(4.8)40.5103.758.9Income and mining taxes (benefit) 13.0(5.4)20.22.0124.3Net income (loss) $(45.0)$26.0$113.7$(56.0)$173.1Net income (loss) per share:      Basic  $(0.28)$0.19$0.79$(0.44)$1.45 Diluted  $(0.28)$0.18$0.75$(0.44)$1.31Cash generated by operating activities $31.6$38.2$157.4$105.9$389.0Adjusted non-GAAP Measures:(1)     Adjusted net income(1) $34.4$20.4$163.3$37.4$241.3Adjusted net income per share—basic(1) $0.22$0.15$1.13$0.29$2.02Adjusted net income per share—diluted(1) $0.20$0.14$1.07$0.29$1.83Operational Statistics (unaudited)     Mined molybdenum production (000's lb)(2) 9,3166,26832,57725,26026,045Cash cost ($/lb produced)(3) $5.81$6.61$6.07$5.84$7.54Molybdenum sold (000's lb):     Thompson Creek mine and Endako mine product 7,5746,88929,07227,38922,349Purchased and processed product 1,8961,4647,8554,68310,681 9,4708,35336,92732,07233,030Average realized price ($/lb)(1) $16.05$12.37$15.67$11.28$30.04_____________________________________(1)   See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for the definition and calculation of these non-GAAP measures.

The cash cost for the Thompson Creek mine, which only produces molybdenum sulfide on site, includes an estimated molybdenum loss, an allocation of roasting and packaging costs from the Langeloth facility, and transportation costs. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures for additional information.Updated 2011 Annual Guidance and OutlookWith the exception of the updated guidance provided below, the 2011 and 2012 guidance as provided on November 4, 2010 is reaffirmed.Capital Expenditures - 2011 estimated capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $591 million (changed from previous guidance of $525 million), comprised of $60 million in capital expenditures for the mines, the Langeloth facility and Corporate (unchanged from previous guidance), $181 million for Thompson Creek's 75% share of capital expenditures required for the mill expansion project at the Endako mine (changed from previous guidance of $115 million) and $350 million related to the Mt. Milligan project (unchanged from previous guidance and still subject to the completion of a detailed review of the project). The increase in capital expenditures at the Endako mine for 2011 includes $27 million of carryover from 2010 and $39 million (75% share) of increased costs to complete the expansion project.Credit Facility Update In February, the Company secured an additional $10 million in commitments from two participant banks and increased its previously announced revolving credit facility from $290 million to $300 million.Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresIn addition to the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with US GAAP, the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures of its financial performance in this press release:  adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share (basic and diluted), cash cost per pound produced, weighted average cash cost per pound produced, and average realized sales price per pound sold.  These are considered key measures by management in evaluating the Company's performance.  These measures do not have standard meanings prescribed by US GAAP and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.  The Company believes these measures provide useful supplemental information to investors in order for them to evaluate the Company's financial performance using the same measures as management.  The Company believes that the use of these measures affords investors greater transparency in assessing the Company's financial performance.  Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with US GAAP.  The presentation of these measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the results of operations as determined in accordance with US GAAP.Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income Per Share — Basic and DilutedAdjusted net income represents the net income prepared in accordance with US GAAP, adjusted for significant non-cash items.  For the fourth quarter and year end December 31, 2010 and 2009, the significant non-cash items were the non-cash gains and losses on the fair value adjustment related to the Company's outstanding common stock purchase warrants.On January 1, 2009, Thompson Creek was required to adopt the guidance issued by the Emerging Issues Task Force that common stock purchase warrants, with a strike price denominated in a currency other than the entity's reporting currency, are not considered linked to equity and, therefore, are to be accounted for as derivatives.  The Company has outstanding common stock purchase warrants denominated in Canadian dollars.  Changes to the fair value of the outstanding warrants are recorded to the statements of operations at each quarter end.  Since a cash payment will never be required at the settlement of the Warrants, management does not consider gains or losses on the warrants in its evaluation of the Company's financial performance.Adjusted net income per share (basic and diluted) is calculated using adjusted earnings, as defined above, divided by the weighted average basic and weighted average diluted shares outstanding during the period, as determined in accordance with US GAAP.The following tables reconcile net income presented in accordance with US GAAP to the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted net income, and adjusted net income per share (basic and diluted) for the three months and years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009:For the three months ended December 31, 2010 (unaudited—US$ in millions except shares and per share amounts)  Weighted AverageBasic SharesWeighted AverageDiluted Shares Net Income (Loss)Shares (000's)$/shareShares (000's)$/shareUS GAAP measures $(45.0)159,533$(0.28)159,533$(0.28)Add (Deduct):      Unrealized (gain) loss on common stock warrants 79.4159,5330.50168,5150.47Non-GAAP measures $34.4159,533$0.22168,515$0.20For the three months ended December 31, 2009 (unaudited—US$ in millions except shares and per share amounts)  Weighted AverageBasic SharesWeighted AverageDiluted Shares Net Income (Loss)Shares (000's)$/shareShares (000's)$/shareUS GAAP measures $26.0139,359$0.19146,916$0.18Add (Deduct):      Unrealized (gain) loss on common stock warrants (5.6)139,359(0.04)146,916(0.04)Non-GAAP measures $20.4139,359$0.15146,916$0.14For the year ended December 31, 2010 (unaudited—US$ in millions except shares and per share amounts)  Weighted AverageBasic SharesWeighted AverageDiluted Shares Net Income (Loss)Shares (000's)$/shareShares (000's)$/shareUS GAAP measures $113.7144,729$0.79152,462$0.75Add (Deduct):      Unrealized (gain) loss on common stock warrants 49.6144,7290.34152,4620.33Non-GAAP measures $163.3144,729$1.13152,462$1.07For the year ended December 31, 2009 (unaudited—US$ in millions except shares and per share amounts)  Weighted AverageBasic SharesWeighted AverageDiluted Shares Net Income (Loss)Shares (000's)$/shareShares (000's)$/shareUS GAAP measures $(56.0)127,521$(0.44)127,521$(0.44)Add :      Unrealized (gain) loss on common stock warrants 93.4127,5210.73130,7020.72Non-GAAP measures $37.4127,521$0.29130,702$0.29Cash Cost per Pound Produced and Average Realized Sales Price per Pound SoldCash cost per pound produced represents the mining (including all stripping costs), milling, mine site administration, roasting and packaging costs for molybdenum oxide and HPM produced at each mine in the period. Stripping costs represent the costs associated with the activity of removing overburden and other mine waste materials in the production phase of a mining operation.  Stripping costs that provide access to mineral reserves that will be produced in future periods are expensed under US GAAP as incurred.  Cash cost per pound produced excludes the effects of purchase price adjustments, the effects of changes in inventory, stock-based compensation, other non-cash employee benefits and depreciation, depletion, amortization and accretion.  Cash cost for the Thompson Creek mine, which only produces molybdenum sulfide and HPM on site, includes an estimated molybdenum loss (sulfide to oxide), an allocation of roasting and packaging costs from the Langeloth Facility, and transportation costs from the Thompson Creek mine to the Langeloth facility. The weighted average cash cost per pound produced represents the cumulative total of the cash costs for the Thompson Creek mine and the Endako mine divided by the cumulative total production from the Thompson Creek mine and the Endako mine.The average realized sales price per pound sold represents molybdenum sales revenue divided by the pounds sold.Three Month Period ended December 31 (US$ in millions except per pound amounts—Unaudited) Three months ended December 31, 2010Three months ended December 31, 2009 Operating Expenses(millions)Pounds Produced(1)(000's lbs)$/lbOperating Expenses(millions)Pounds Produced(1)(000's lbs)$/lbThompson Creek Mine      Cash costs—Non-GAAP(2) $36.07,630$4.72$27.64,300$6.43Add/(Deduct):       Stock-based compensation 0.2  1.1   Inventory and other adjustments (6.9)  0.6  GAAP operating expenses $29.3  $29.3  Endako Mine      Cash costs—Non-GAAP(2) $18.01,686$10.65$13.81,968$7.00Add/(Deduct):       Stock-based compensation 0.2  0.4   Inventory and other adjustments (4.0)  (1.3)  GAAP operating expenses $14.2  $12.9  Other operations GAAP operating expenses(3) $32.1  $25.9  GAAP consolidated operating expenses $75.6  $68.1  Weighted-average cash cost—Non-GAAP$54.19,316$5.81$41.46,268$6.61Year End Period December 31 (US$ in millions except per pound amounts—Unaudited) Year Ended December 31, 2010Year Ended December 31, 2009 Operating Expenses(millions)Pounds Produced(1(000's lbs)$/lbOperating Expenses(millions)Pounds Produced(1)(000's lbs)$/lbThompson Creek Mine      Cash costs—Non-GAAP(2) $130.425,071$5.20$101.917,813$5.72Add/(Deduct):       Stock-based compensation 1.5  1.2   Inventory and other adjustments (7.6)  15.2  GAAP operating expenses $124.3  $118.3  Endako Mine      Cash costs—Non-GAAP(2) $66.77,506$8.89$45.77,447$6.13Add/(Deduct):       Stock-based compensation 1.1  0.4   Inventory and other adjustments (7.9)  1.2  GAAP operating expenses $59.9  $47.3  Other operations GAAP operating expenses(3) $131.3  $75.7  GAAP consolidated operating expenses $315.5  $241.3  Weighted-average cash cost—Non-GAAP $197.732,577$6.07$147.625,260$5.84(1)  Mined production pounds are molybdenum oxide and HPM from the Company's share of the production from the mines; excludes molybdenum processed from purchased product.(2)  Cash costs represent the mining (including all stripping costs), milling, mine site administration, roasting and packaging costs for molybdenum oxide and HPM produced in the period.  Cash cost excludes: the effect of purchase price adjustments, the effects of changes in inventory, stock-based compensation, other non-cash employee benefits and depreciation, depletion, amortization and accretion.  The cash cost for the Thompson Creek mine, which only produces molybdenum sulfide and HPM on site, includes an estimated molybdenum loss (sulfide to oxide), an allocation of roasting and packaging costs from the Langeloth facility, and transportation costs from the Thompson Creek mine to the Langeloth facility.(3)  Other operations represent activities related to the roasting, processing and upgrading of third-party concentrate and other metals at the Langeloth Facility and exclude product volumes and costs related to the roasting and processing of Thompson Creek mine and Endako mine concentrate.
