Taseko’s wholly owned Florence Copper, an in-situ copper recovery project, is located midway between Phoenix and Tucson near the community of Florence, Arizona.
In September 2017, with all final permits in place, Taseko announced that it’s Board of Directors approved the construction of the Florence Copper Phase 1 in-situ copper recovery facility.
Construction commenced immediately following Board approval and by Spring of 2018 the wellfield and SX/EW plant were well underway, on-time and on-budget. The Phase 1 facility is scheduled to produce its first copper cathode before the end of 2018.
Successful operation of the Phase 1 wellfield and processing plant will be a major milestone in advancing and realizing the full value of the Project.
