Taseko’s Florence Copper Project Achieves Major Milestone

- January 8th, 2019

Following an initial leaching period, leach solutions are flowing at expected levels and copper has been detected in solutions recovered from process sample wells.

Taseko Mines (TSX:TKO,NYSEAmerican:TGB) has announced that following receipt of all necessary state and federal operating permits, wellfield operations were commenced and injection and recovery systems have now been fully ramped up at its Florence Copper project in central Arizona.

Following an initial leaching period, leach solutions are flowing at expected levels and copper has been detected in solutions recovered from process sample wells.

President and CEO of Taseko, Russell Hallbauer said:

“Our preliminary tracer tests of the wellfield in the third quarter 2018 exhibited robust percolation rates through the ore body. These results were as good as, and in some cases better than, modeled in the 2017 technical study.  The rate at which the dissolved copper is increasing in the leach solution further confirms historical test work and technical data.”
