NEW YORK, April 18 (Reuters) - Teck Resources said on Friday its Red Dog zinc mine, the world's largest, in Alaska is operating as usual after two earthquakes struck a few miles from the site.

"Mild tremors were felt at Red Dog operations. There were no safety concerns and the mine is currently operating as normal," a spokesman said in an email. (Reporting by Josephine Mason; Editing by Richard Chang)
