A low carbon future depends on copper; it is essential for all forms of renewable energy, electric vehicle transportation, energy transmission and so much more. There is no metal more vital to power tomorrow than copper.
Benefiting from hydro power, Gibraltar Mine has a low carbon intensity. As reported and qualified by Skarn Associates, Gibraltar ranks in the lowest quartile compared to other copper miners throughout the world with Scope 11 GHG emissions of 1.66 t CO2e/t Cu eq. per pound of copper produced and Scope 22 GHG GHG emissions of 0.09 t CO2e/t Cu eq. per pound of copper produced.
With a combined Scope 1 & 2 Copper Intensity of 1.88 t CO2e/t Cu eq. per pound, Florence Copper Project will have one of the lowest GHG emissions per pound of copper compared to other copper mines throughout the world.
When commercial production from Florence Copper commences, Taseko’s position (Gibraltar + Florence) on the GHG Intensity Curve drops lower in
the first quartile, as reported by Skarn Associates.
