Taseko To Commence Normal Course Issuer Bid

VANCOUVER, Jan. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Taseko Mines Limited (TSX: TKO) (NYSE Amex: TGB) ("Taseko" or the "Company") announces that it has received Toronto Stock Exchange approval to proceed with a normal course issuer bid for up to 10 million common shares of the Company, which is approximately 5.1% of the Company's 196,504,895 issued shares as of today's date. The targeted purchases over a one year period are subject to the restricted payment limitations in the Company's senior notes indenture calculated as $20 million plus 50% of Taseko' cumulative consolidated net income from January 1, 2011 (consolidated net income (unaudited) was $34.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011).  The Company's normal course bid will commence February 3, 2012. Purchases will be made on the TSX at the market price at the time of acquisition.

The Company's normal course issuer bid will terminate on February 2, 2013 or earlier if the number of shares sought in the issuer bid has been obtained. The Company reserves the right to terminate the bid earlier at any time.

The Company will purchase common shares when it believes that they are undervalued at the current market prices based on its current earnings and future prospects and provided that the repurchase of common shares at such market prices is an appropriate use of corporate funds. The Company has not determined a maximum price it will pay as the price will be determined in the context of the market and the outlook for the Company's operations.

All shares will be purchased on the open market through the facilities of the TSX and other recognized Canadian markets, and payment for the share will be in accordance with TSX policies. The price paid for the shares will be the market price at the time of purchase. The maximum number of shares that may be purchased on a daily basis is 122,660 shares (which is 25% of Taseko's daily TSX volume over the last half of 2011), except where purchases are made in accordance with "block purchases" exemptions under applicable TSX policies. The shares purchased by the Company will be cancelled. The Company will periodically report its purchases as required by regulatory policy.

To the knowledge of the Company, no director, senior officer or other insider of the Company currently intends to sell any common shares under this bid. However, sales by such persons through the facilities of the TSX may occur if the personal circumstance of any such person change, or any such person makes a decision unrelated to these normal course purchases. The terms of sale for any insider would be identical to those available to all other holders whose shares are purchased.
