Base metals-focused miner Taseko Mines has decided to proceed with the $25-million construction of a production test facility at its Florence in situ copper project, in Arizona, after winning a third-party appeal against the federal underground injection control (UIC) permit that was issued late last year.
The TSX- and NYSE America-listed company reported that the Environmental Appeals Board (EAB) of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has on Friday issued an order denying any further review of the UIC permit. The EAB found that the petitioners failed to demonstrate any errors were made in issuing the federal permit.
