Taseko Mines hopes to revive New Prosperity copper-and-gold mine in federal court

Members of the Tsilhqot’in Nation rallied this morning in Vancouver as Taseko Mines heads to federal court in hopes of reviving the New Prosperity copper-and-gold mine west of Williams Lake.

Taseko hopes to reverse several rulings affecting the mine, which has twice been rejected by federal review panels.

The Tsilhqot’in oppose the mine, saying it will destroy sacred lands and waters.

In a unanimous Supreme Court decision, the First Nation became the first in Canada to win title to its territory and it is dismayed that the province granted a five-year extension of an environmental assessment certificate to New Prosperity, without consulting the band.
