Florence Copper Project has just harvested its first 3,700 pounds of copper cathode (32 sheets x 117 pounds) in Florence, AZ. The copper cathode has been assayed at higher than 99.9% copper by Minerals Technology, LLC, an independent laboratory.
“Our test facility is performing very well and we are extremely pleased to have produced such high quality copper this early in the process," said Russell Hallbauer, President and CEO of Taseko. "These results have exceeded our expectations. There is no better proof to demonstrate the success of our highly engineered in-situ leaching process test facility. With the facility now at steady-state and producing high quality copper, we will use the balance of the year to refine and improve operating procedures for the commercial facility.”
