    TORONTO, Oct. 16 /CNW/ - Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc. ("the
Company"), one of the world's largest publicly traded, pure molybdenum
producers, today announced that Pamela L. Saxton has assumed all the duties
and responsibilities of the Chief Financial Officer and Vice President,
Finance, effective October 16, 2008. Her appointment to this role was
previously announced in a July 29, 2008 news release in conjunction with the
move of the Company's finance department from Vancouver, British Columbia to
the Company's principal executive office in Denver, Colorado.
    "The move of the finance department from Vancouver to Denver is
progressing well. By the end of October, most of the new finance employees
will be on board in Denver and working with the outgoing team in Vancouver,"
said Kevin Loughrey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
    "The Vancouver finance employees, who have chosen not to relocate to
Denver, have been commendable in welcoming their new counterparts and
acquainting them with their respective functions while continuing their
regular responsibilities. I especially wish to thank Derek Price, former Vice
President, Finance and CFO, for his contributions and support over the past
two years and during this transition. He will continue to assist us as needed
through the remainder of the year. All of us at Thompson Creek certainly wish
him and the rest of the Vancouver team the best in their future pursuits."
