Nov 17 (Reuters) - Canadian miner Teck Resources Ltd said it would cut an additional 1,000 jobs and reduce total spending in response to persistent low commodity prices.

The miner said it would achieve a reduction of $650 million in total spending in 2016 through $350 million in capital spending cuts and $300 million in operating cost savings.

Teck Resources plans to eliminate jobs across its global offices, including senior management positions, it said in a statement on Tuesday. (Reporting by Mansi Goenka in Bengaluru; Editing by Anupama Dwivedi)
