The company reported on Thursday that its adjusted second-quarter net profit attributable to shareholders fell more than 82% to C $89 million, compared with C $498 million in the same period last year, as the new crown pneumonia epidemic affected product demand and depressed prices.
Operating revenue fell 45% to C $1.72 billion. The company sold 5 million tonnes of steelmaking coal, higher than previously forecast, as Chinese steel production returned to pre-outbreak levels in the second quarter.
Global miners, including Tektronix, have been hit by the epidemic on commodity markets, forcing some companies to cut production and suspend construction.
Construction of a large copper mine in Chile is still partially suspended due to the outbreak, the company said.
