The provincial government of British Columbia has issued base metals producer Taseko Mines with a multi-year Notice of Work (NOW) permit that will allow it to undertake a site investigation programme at the New Prosperity gold/copper mine.
The mine project, which has been nixed twice by the federal government, has drawn the ire of First Nations impacted by the project, calling the move “shocking” and vowing to challenge the British Columbia-issued permits in court.
