The federal government turned them down once, but a Vancouver-based mining company is trying again to push through a controversial mining project.
Taseko Mines says it wants to revive its prosperity mine project in British Columbia’s interior, near Williams Lake, B.C.
The federal government initially turned down their proposal last year, saying any mining projects would damage the environment.
In a recent news release, Taseko says its new proposal will not impact the environment and wildlife.
Rising gold and copper prices will bring in more money to save the environment.
First Nations group in the region are again opposing Taseko’s plans.
Chief Marilyn Baptiste says no matter how the company spins it, the mine will damage their territory.
