Thompson Creek Metals Company Announces Adjournment of Annual Meeting to May 29, 2013 With Respect to Equity Proposals

Thompson Creek Metals Company Announces Adjournment of Annual Meeting to May 
29, 2013 With Respect to Equity Proposals 
DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/13 --  Thompson Creek Metals
Company Inc. (NYSE: TC) (TSX: TCM) ("Thompson Creek" or the
"Company") announced that at its 2013 Annual and Special Meeting of
Shareholders held earlier today, its shareholders voted to approve
the re-election of the Company's Board of Directors, to appoint the
Company's independent registered public accounting firm and to
approve the compensation of the Company's named executive officers on
an advisory basis. The meeting was then adjourned with respect to the
proposals to approve the Company's amended and restated long-term
incentive plan and amended and restated employee stock purchase plan.
The meeting will reconvene on May 29, 2013, allowing shareholders
additional time to vote on such proposals.  
The rules of the New York Stock Exchange require the affirmative vote
of the holders of a majority of all shares of the Company's common
stock outstanding to approve the Company's amended and restated
equity plans, which is a higher voting standard than was required to
approve the Company's other proposals. In addition, brokers do not
have discretionary authority to vote on the equity plans and must
receive voting instructions from beneficial owners of shares held in
street name in order for the shares to be voted on the equity plans.
Less than half of the Company's outstanding shares of common stock
have been voted on the equity plan proposals. A significant
percentage of the votes cast on each of these proposals were voted in
favor of such proposals.  
"The equity plan proposals are very important to the Company because
they enable us to attract, retain and reward high caliber employees
and directors and to align the interests of employees and directors
with those of our shareholders," stated Kevin Loughrey, the Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer of Thompson Creek. "We are encouraged by
the favorable support that we have received to date from our
shareholders who have voted on the equity plan proposals. Given the
higher voting standards and the non-routine nature of the proposals,
though, we want to make sure that all shareholders have sufficient
time to vote their preferences. We encourage shareholders who have
not yet executed a proxy to do so. This will help save us further
solicitation costs on the proposals and ensure that they are
represented."  
During the period of the adjournment, Thompson Creek will continue to
solicit proxies from its shareholders with respect to the proposed
amended and restated equity plans. Shareholders who have not already
done so are encouraged to vote on the proposals. Shareholders who
have already voted need not take any action on the proposals,
although they may change their votes for the equity plan proposals by
executing a new proxy, revoking a previously given proxy or attending
the adjourned meeting and voting in person, as set forth in the
Company's proxy statement.  
The meeting adjournment will be until 10:00 a.m., Mountain Time, on
Wednesday, May 29, 2013, at the Company's offices at 26 West Dry
Creek Circle, Littleton, CO 80120.  
Thompson Creek's proxy materials were filed on www.sec.gov and
www.sedar.com on March 27, 2013 and were mailed to shareholders on or
about March 27, 2013. Shareholders are urged to read such proxy
materials.  
If you have not yet voted or wish to change your vote on the second
and third proposals found in the Company's proxy statement, the
Company urges you to vote pursuant to the instructions provided in
your voting instruction form or proxy card. You may also contact
Morrow & Co. at (800) 267-0201 if you need assistance with voting. 
As noted above, at the meeting today, the Company's shareholders
re-elected Denis C. Arsenault, Carol T. Banducci, James L. Freer,
James P. Geyer, Timothy J. Haddon, Kevin Loughrey and Thomas J.
O'Neil to the Board of Directors, each of whom will serve until the
2014 annual meeting, or until his or her successor is duly elected
and qualified. In addition, the Company's shareholders appointed KPMG
LLP as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm
from its engagement through the 2014 annual meeting, and authorized
the Company's Board of Directors to fix its remuneration. The
Company's shareholders also approved, on an advisory basis, the
compensation of the Company's named executive officers. Detailed
results of the vote for the election of directors are set out below.
