Taseko’s Gi­bral­tar mine tem­po­rar­ily idled

Stockwatch Daily - - MINES & METALS - Mr. Rus­sell Hall­bauer re­ports

TASEKO MINES Ltd. has pro­vided an up­date on the op­er­at­ing sta­tus of Gi­bral­tar.

Due to un­con­trolled wild­fires in the Cari­boo, an evac­u­a­tion or­der has been is­sued for Wil­liams Lake and a num­ber of other smaller com­mu­ni­ties in the re­gion. This has im­pacted the com­pany’s em­ploy­ees’ abil­ity to travel to the mine, and Gi­bral­tar has now been tem­po­rar­ily idled. It is un­clear when milling and min­ing oper­a­tions will recom­mence.

There are no fires in the im­me­di­ate area of Gi­bral­tar which pose any threat to the mine.

This is an evolv­ing sit­u­a­tion which man­age­ment is ac­tively man­ag­ing to en­sure Gi­bral­tar is restarted as soon as pos­si­ble.

We seek Safe Har­bor.
