Denver, CO - March 31, 2011 - Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc. (NYSE: TC, TSX: TCM, TCM.WT, TSX-V:TRX.WT, TRX.WT.A) (�Company� or �Thompson Creek�), a growing, diversified North American mining company, today announced that it has completed a $132 million equipment financing facility with Cat Financial Services Limited (�Cat Financial�), pursuant to which Cat Financial has agreed to underwrite up to $132 million in mobile fleet equipment financing for Thompson Creek�s Mt. Milligan copper-gold mine located in British Columbia (the �Equipment Finance Facility�). 

The equipment fleet is expected to include haul trucks, shovels, drills, loaders, dozers and other units of mining support equipment and is expected to be delivered to the Mt. Milligan copper-gold mine throughout 2012.
Drawdowns against the Equipment Finance Facility will occur as the equipment is delivered.  Each drawdown will be for a term of five years and will be secured by the underlying equipment. 

�We have crossed another major milestone in the development of the Mt. Milligan copper-gold mine and are extremely pleased to have Cat Financial endorse the future Mt. Milligan mining operation.   As previously announced, we believe cash on hand, cash flow from operations, funds from financing facilities and expected funds from the exercise of warrants will be sufficient to fund the construction and development of the Mt. Milligan copper-gold mine.  We look forward to the completion of the mine in late 2013,� said Kevin Loughrey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Thompson Creek.

Thompson Creek also announced that it has selected Finning Canada (�Finning�) and Bucyrus Canada Limited (�Bucyrus�) as mining equipment suppliers for the Mt. Milligan project, pursuant to which Finning and Bucyrus will supply mobile mining equipment, parts and equipment maintenance services to the Mt. Milligan mine.

�We are proud to have partnered with Finning and Bucyrus, leading equipment suppliers in the mining sector, and look forward to working with them on the Mt. Milligan project,� said Mr. Loughrey.
