Taseko Mines is a dynamic and growing Canadian mining company.
Headquartered in Vancouver, Taseko operates the state-of-the-art Gibraltar Mine, the second largest copper mine in Canada, with a nearly 700 person workforce producing an average of 140 million pounds of copper and 2.5 million pounds of molybdenum per year.
Our strategy is to grow by developing our pipeline of high-quality advanced stage projects.
The company has recently completed construction of a US$25 million demonstration plant at its Florence Copper Project in Arizona. Florence Copper is a unique in-situ copper recovery project which will significantly increase Taseko’s copper production.Engineering, design and permitting activities are underway in preparation for the 25-year commercial production phase of the project.
With the recent acquisition of Yellowhead Mining, Taseko has added a large, long-life copper project to its development portfolio. Located 150km north of Kamloops, BC, the deposit is similar to Gibraltar and the company is preparing to take the steps necessary to advance the technical and permitting work required to move the project towards production.
In addition to the activities underway at Florence Copper and Yellowhead, Taseko continues engineering, permitting and environmental assessment related activities at its Aley niobium project in north central BC.
Taseko offers a challenging and rewarding work environment for operators, trades people, and technical and management personnel. We provide opportunities for our employees to advance their careers through personal and professional development, education, and apprenticeship programs.
We inspire our employees to upgrade their skills and education. We believe providing education assistance is one way we can support career advancement. The company will cover the tuition for job and/or career related continuing education courses.
Through our apprentice programs, employees can gain paid work-based and technical training while earning their ticket in one of approximately 8 different trade disciplines. Employees in our apprentice program will be partnered with a journeyman of their specific trade to provide mentorship.
