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.
