Taseko Commences Commissioning of GDP3 Concentrator

VANCOUVER, Dec. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Taseko (TSX: TKO; NYSE MKT: TGB) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the commissioning phase of the $325 million Gibraltar Development Project 3 (GDP 3) has begun.

The electrical power distribution and reclaim water systems have been successfully tied in and are now operational and water testing of the new tailings system is underway.

Commissioning will continue into January and it is expected that first ore will be delivered to the new concentrator immediately thereafter, with commercial production targeted by the end of March.

Russell Hallbauer, President and CEO of Taseko, commented, "In the twenty months since awarding the construction management contract, we have successfully built a new 30,000 ton per day concentrator and associated infrastructure, on time and on budget for $235 million.  This new concentrator, along with the $90 million of new state-of-the-art mining equipment, will increase Gibraltar's production capabilities to 85,000 tons per day by mid-2013. Gibraltar will have two distinct production trains which will significantly enhance our operational flexibility. As metal production increases over the course of the year while we ramp up our daily mill throughput, operating costs will decline from those experienced over the latter part of 2012."

President and CEO

  • uncertainties related to feasibility studies that provide estimates of expected or anticipated costs, expenditures and economic returns from a mining project;
  • uncertainties related to our ability to complete the mill upgrade on time estimated and at the scheduled cost;
  • uncertainties related to the ability to obtain necessary licenses permits for development projects and project delays due to third party opposition;

  • the effects of forward selling instruments to protect against fluctuations in copper prices and exchange rate movements and the risks of counterparty defaults, and mark to market risk;
  • the risk of inadequate insurance or inability to obtain insurance to cover mining risks;
  • the risk of loss of key employees; the risk of changes in accounting policies and methods we use to report our financial condition, including uncertainties associated with critical accounting assumptions and estimates;
  • environmental issues and liabilities associated with mining including processing and stock piling ore; and
