    VANCOUVER, Oct. 22 /CNW/ - TTM Resources Inc. (the "Company") (TSX
VENTURE:TTQ) (FRANKFURT:T2U) announces that it has today received approval
from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") to make a Normal Course Issuer
Bid (the "Bid") to purchase for cancellation, from time to time, as it
considers advisable, up to 2,500,000 of the Company's issued and outstanding
Common Shares (being approximately 4.95% of the 50,437,489 Common Shares
outstanding at October 17, 2008). Purchases will not exceed 1,008,749 common
shares (being approximately 2% of the Company's issued and outstanding Common
Shares) in the 30 day period commencing October 27, 2008. Purchases will be
made in accordance with Exchange requirements, on the open market through the
facilities of the Exchange. Canaccord Capital Corporation will conduct the Bid
on behalf of the Company. The price that the Company will pay for any shares
purchased will be the prevailing market price of such shares on the Exchange
at the time of such purchase. The Company will spend up to an aggregate
maximum of $3,500,000 on the Bid, being approximately the amount of B.C.
Mining Tax Credit to be received by the Company for its two most recently
completed fiscal years.
    The Bid will commence on October 27, 2008 and will terminate on the
earlier of October 26, 2009, or the date on which the Company has acquired all
of the shares sought pursuant to the bid. Any shares acquired by the Company
pursuant to the bid will be cancelled. As required by Exchange policy,
purchases (other than purchases by way of a substantial issuer bid) will not,
when aggregated with the total of all other purchases in the preceding 30
days, exceed 2% of the total issued and outstanding common shares of the
Company at the time the purchases are made.
    The Board of Directors of the Company believe that the current and recent
market prices of the Company's shares do not give full effect to their
underlying value and that, accordingly, the purchase of shares will increase
the proportionate share interest of, and be advantageous to, all remaining
shareholders. The normal course purchases will also afford an increased degree
of liquidity to the Company's shareholders who would like to dispose of their
