Teck CEO says major M&A speculation "grossly overblown"

TORONTO (Reuters) - Teck Resources Ltd TCKb.TO is not currently planning a major takeover and will be prudent with the use of its balance sheet, the diversified miner’s chief executive said on Tuesday.

    “There has been a lot of speculation about us pursuing major M&A transactions and I can tell you this is grossly overblown,” Teck’s Don Lindsay told a conference call with investors.

    The Canadian company has been touted as a potential suitor for Rio Tinto Plc’s (RIO.L) iron ore assets in Eastern Canada.
