Prentice kills Taseko's Prosperity mine

Last Updated: November 2, 2010 7:04pm

OTTAWA – The federal government has killed a plan for an open-pit mine in Fish Lake, B.C.

 

“The project as it was proposed would result in the destruction of Fish Lake and the destruction as well of a complex and highly productive ecosystem that included ... dozens of connecting streams, wetlands and aquatic life,” Environment Minister Jim Prentice said Tuesday.

“There was a significant risk that this habitat could not be successfully reproduced through manmade substitutes.”
