Teck Increasing Interest in Deep-South to 35% through Asset Sale

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb 15, 2017) - Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TECK.A and TECK.B, NYSE: TECK) ("Teck") announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its 70% interest in Haib Minerals (PTY) Ltd. ("Haib") to Deep-South Resources Inc. (TSXV:DSM) ("Deep-South"), who holds the remaining 30% interest in Haib. Haib holds a 100% interest in the Haib copper project located in Namibia.

As part of the consideration under the sales agreement, Teck will receive 13,600,000 common shares of Deep-South at closing. The shares issued on closing, together with the 4,166,666 common shares currently held by Teck, will result in Teck holding approximately 35% of Deep-South's outstanding shares on an undiluted basis.

In the event that Teck's 17,766,666 common shares represents less than 35% of the issued and outstanding common shares immediately following closing, Deep-South will issue additional shares to Teck in order to maintain Teck's immediate post-closing ownership at 35%. In addition, Teck holds a $373,195 convertible debenture, that if Teck were to convert the entire principal amount, Teck would hold approximately 38% of Deep-South's outstanding common shares immediately following closing of the transaction, calculated on a partially diluted basis assuming the conversion of the debenture only.

The purpose of the acquisition of common shares was to facilitate the sale of our interest in Haib. Teck may determine to increase or decrease its holdings in Deep-South depending on market conditions and any other relevant factors. This release is required to be issued under the early warning requirements of applicable securities laws. A copy of the early warning report may be obtained from the contacts listed below.
