Taseko Mines has received a permit from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) to construct, operate, and close a 24-well test in-situ copper recovery operation at its Florence Copper project near the community of Florence, Arizona, midway between Phoenix and Tucson. The injection and recovery well system will be accompanied by a state-of-the-art solvent extraction and electro-winning facility that will produce copper cathode from solution from the wells.
