Taseko New Prosperity mine timeline

A timeline of the never-ending saga that is the Taseko New Prosperity mine

The volley of legal challenges surrounding the $1.5 billion gold and copper project is dizzying. Here's some help.

A decade-long battle to build a $1.5 billion gold and copper mine in the traditional territory of the Tsilhqot’in First Nation is back in a federal court — again.

The legal twists and turns of this project, first proposed back in 2008, are many and hard to keep track of.

Between defamation lawsuits, rejected project proposals and lost judicial reviews it’s near impossible to stay on top of this controversial mining proposal, although that’s exactly what the Tsilhqot’in First Nation has had to do at every step of the way.

The Narwhal created a handy-dandy timeline to help layout the flow of legal proceedings that continue to this day.

Hey there keener,
Thanks for being an avid reader of our in-depth journalism, which is read by millions and made possible thanks to thousands of readers just like you.

The Narwhal's growing team is hitting the ground running in 2022 to tell stories about the natural world that go beyond doom-and-gloom headlines — and we need your support.

Our model of independent, non-profit journalism means we can pour resources into doing the kind of environmental reporting you won’t find anywhere else in Canada, from investigations that hold elected officials accountable to deep dives showcasing the real people enacting real climate solutions.

There’s no advertising or paywall on our website (we believe our stories should be free for all to read), which means we count on our readers to give whatever they can afford each month to keep The Narwhal’s lights on.

The amazing thing? Our faith is being rewarded. We hired 14 new staff over the past year and won a boatload of awards for our features, our photography and our investigative reporting.

With your help, we’ll be able to do so much more in 2022. If you believe in the power of independent journalism, join our pod by becoming a Narwhal today. (P.S. Did you know we’re able to issue charitable tax receipts?)
