Taseko Idles Gibralter Mine
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.
