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.

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