The company plans to cut its exploration budget and is considering asset sales to repay the debt it took on with the $13 bn buyout of Fording Canadian Coal Trust.
Don Lindsay, CEO, Teck, Cominco, said:

We are going to look at exploration budgets, both oil sands related and on base metals and gold projects, but they will be cut back.
