Description MiningWatch Canada is glad to share the announcement by Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq that the federal government will not approve Taseko Mines’ New Prosperity gold-copper project. The project, located in south-central British Columbia, was a modification of a previously rejected application. The decision was made after the company’s second proposal failed to address “significant adverse effects”.
