Submissions to the Federal Review Panel for Taseko's New Prosperity Gold Copper Project

Following the rejection of its earlier proposal to mine the gold and copper deposit at Teztan Biny (Fish Lake), Taseko resubmitted a modified proposal the company claimed would address the many significant issues identified by the previous review panel. A second review panel was established and hearings were held throughout July and August 2013. Throughout the process expertes identified fundamental weaknesses in Taseko's elaborate scheme to "save" Teztan Biny and address the concerns of the previous review panel.

The full registry of all documents submitted to the panel can be found here.
