Job Description

With headquarters in Vancouver, Canada, Taseko Mines Limited is a leading North American copper producer across a range of key dimensions: operational efficiency; low energy and GHG intensity, environmentally sound, socially responsible development; healthy and safe workplaces and communities.

The Company’s foundational asset is the long-life, low-cost Gibraltar copper mine (75% owned) in south-central British Columbia, for which it has won numerous environmental and safety awards for operational excellence.  Gibraltar is a state-of-the-art facility and the second largest open pit copper mine in Canada, with a 700+ person workforce.  Gibraltar produces an average of 130 million pounds of copper and 2.5 million pounds of molybdenum each year, with mineral reserves sufficient for more than 20 years of future operations.

Taseko is also advancing the Florence Copper Project in Arizona – a near-term copper producer with an unparalleled energy, water and GHG profile per unit of production. Florence Copper is a unique ‘in-situ copper recovery’ project which,  once operating, will significantly increase Taseko’s copper production.  Taseko expects to receive its final federal permit for the Florence Copper Project in 2022, after which construction will commence. The project will  have a production capacity of 85 million pounds of copper per year over a 20-year mine life.

The Yellowhead Project is a large, long-life copper project that Taseko added to its development portfolio in 2019. Located 150km north of Kamloops in the Thompson-Nicola region of BC, the Yellowhead deposit is similar to the Gibraltar deposit in size and grade. The Company is currently preparing to initiate the provincial and federal Environmental Assessment process for Yellowhead, while advancing technical and other work required to move the project towards production.

Taseko’s strategy is to sustainably and profitably grow the company through developing our pipeline of high-quality advanced-stage mineral assets. We  are looking for qualified applicants who are interested in joining our team.
