VANCOUVER, Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Taseko (TSX: TKO; NYSE MKT: TGB) (the "Company") wishes to report that it has complied with the November 13 th request from the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) to explain the Company's position that the panel had erred in its finding on the technical aspects of New Prosperity's tailings seepage and water quality.
On November 13 th CEAA posted the request for information on its internet registry. While CEAA has acknowledged receipt, to Taseko, of Taseko's letters dated November 8th and 15th, it does not intend to post these documents on the CEAA internet registry at this time.
Russell Hallbauer, President and CEO of Taseko commented, "Our position is very clear; we expect to be treated fairly and objectively in this process. Publicly requesting information, and then choosing not to release the results of the request in a similar manner creates an inaccurate portrayal of Taseko and an impression in the minds of the public that our critique of the panel's findings are somehow flawed. We have therefore posted the specific documents related to this matter on Taseko's website to ensure our shareholders, community stakeholders and the general public are fully aware of the facts."
