Taseko Mines Ltd’s proposed Prosperity Gold-Copper Mine Project would result in adverse environmental effects although the project need not be scrapped, according to a Federal Review Panel report on the mine.

The panel concluded that the Project would result in significant adverse environmental effects in four key areas: (i) fish and fish habitat; (ii) navigation; (iii) current and traditional uses of land and resources by First Nations; and (iv) existing and potential Aboriginal rights and title. However, the Review Panel made no explicit recommendations to the federal cabinet to approve or reject the Project.
