Taseko’s President and CEO, Russell Halblauer said:

We are extremely pleased with how commissioning progressed on the new concentrator, and this is reflected in how well the system is working after only six operating days. Early results from Concentrator #2 performance are as expected and we anticipate advancing to design capacity as expeditiously as the mechanical circuits allow. This is in line with our projections of full design throughput of 30,000 tons per day by mid-year. Additionally, improved operating performance is anticipated from Concentrator #1 as it is now unencumbered by construction activities.
