NovaGold and Teck Cominco Suspend Construction at Galore Creek

Joint investor conference call
Monday, November 26 at 9:00 am EST (6:00 am PST)
Dial-in 1-866-898-9626

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Nov. 26, 2007) – NovaGold Resources Inc. (TSX:NG)(AMEX:NG) and Teck Cominco Limited (TSX:TCK.A)(TSX:TCK.B)(NYSE:TCK) today announced they will suspend construction activities at the Galore Creek copper-gold-silver project in northwestern British Columbia. A recent review and completion of the first season of construction indicate substantially higher capital costs and a longer construction schedule for the project. This, combined with reduced operating margins as a result of the stronger Canadian dollar, would make the project, as now conceived and permitted, uneconomic at current consensus long-term metal prices. NovaGold and Teck Cominco continue to view the property as a substantial resource and will initiate a comprehensive review to evaluate alternative development strategies. The Galore Creek partnership will conduct an orderly suspension of construction activities and will work with employees, the Tahltan Nation, local communities and other stakeholders to minimize the impacts of this decision.

This demonstrates our two-tier approach to building Company value by acquiring low cost, large-scale heavy oil resources by upgrading those resources into reserves and building stable production and cash flow. We believe that the conversion of captured heavy oil resources into Proven and Probable reserves is the most important value driver and we therefore have ongoing appraisal and development projects designed to accomplish this goal in the shortest time frame possible.
