Taseko Mines to challenge findings of environment threat

(Reuters) - Taseko Mines Ltd said on Friday that it will challenge findings of a Canadian federal review panel, which said that the company's revised plan for a copper-gold mine in British Columbia poses significant threats to the environment.

In a statement, Taseko said the findings contradict best practices in place around the world.
