Teck Resources says first-quarter steelmaking coal sales fell slightly below guidance
Teck Resources Ltd. TECK-B-T -2.93%decrease says its steelmaking coal sales in the first quarter came in slightly below its guidance as a result of a labour dispute at Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. CP-T +0.21%increase that resulted in a temporary work stoppage at the railway.
The mining company says its first-quarter steelmaking coal sales totalled 6.0 million tonnes.
Teck had provided guidance for between 6.1 million and 6.5 million tonnes.
