Monday, July 17, 2017 @ 9:49 AM

Prince George, B.C. – The Gibralter  mine,  north west of Williams Lake,   has been idled.

In a release issued this morning,  Taseko Mines says  the wildfires  in the Cariboo   have   made it impossible for  employees to  travel  to the mine site. “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.

The Gibralter mine is the largest employer in the Cariboo region.
