Description

Position at Gibraltar Mine

Company Background and Culture

 

Taseko Mines is a dynamic international mining company, headquartered in Vancouver. Our strategy is to grow our company through developing our pipeline of high-quality advanced stage projects.

 

Taseko owns (75%) and operates the state-of-the-art Gibraltar Mine in central British Columbia.  Gibraltar is the second largest open pit copper mine in Canada and has a 700 person workforce.  Gibraltar has a long mine life and produces an average of 140 million pounds of copper and 2.5 million pounds of molybdenum per year.

 

The company has recently completed construction of a US$25 million demonstration plant at its Florence Copper Project in Arizona. Florence Copper is a unique in-situ copper recovery project which, when in production, will significantly increase Taseko’s copper production.  Engineering, design and permitting activities are underway in preparation for the 25-year commercial production phase of the project.

 

With the recent acquisition of Yellowhead Mining, Taseko has added a large, long-life copper project to its development portfolio.  The deposit, located 150km north of Kamloops, BC, is similar to the Gibraltar Mine deposit and the company is preparing to take the steps necessary to advance the technical and permitting work required to move the project towards production. 

 

In addition to the activities underway at Florence Copper and Yellowhead, Taseko continues engineering, permitting and environmental assessment related activities at its Aley niobium project in north central BC. For more information on Taseko visit our website at https://www.tasekomines.com.
