“Earlier this week, now-resigned Federal Environmental Minister Jim Prentice announced the rejection of Taseko’s proposed $1 billion open-pit gold and copper Prosperity mine in the interior of BC. The project called for the use of Teztan Biny (Fish Lake) as a tailings pond to dump over 700 hundred million tons of waste. This would have required the removal of 90,000 rainbow trout, as well as destruction of the surrounding pristine wetlands and aquatic life in the connecting Taseko River and Little Fish Lake.”
