Taseko Issues Update On Aley Project

VANCOUVER, Feb. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Taseko Mines Limited (TSX: TKO; NYSE Amex: TGB) ("Taseko" or the "Company") is proceeding with its $20 million mineral exploration program for its Aley niobium project north of Mackenzie, British Columbia.

The bulk of the work, scheduled to take place this summer, has three primary objectives: 1) further define the ore body; 2) undertake environmental baseline studies and 3) inform the project feasibility and advance preliminary engineering and mine site planning.

To date, all exploration activities have been through helicopter supported programs.  In order to advance this year's work and support future development, a road clearing contract has been awarded to a local First Nations construction firm and work has started on clearing a 12km route into the project area.
