October 12, 2010
Vancouver, BC - Taseko Mines Limited (TSX: TKO; NYSE Amex: TGB) (“Taseko” or the “Company”), today announced it has obtained receipt for a final short-form base shelf prospectus further to its filing of a preliminary short-form base shelf prospectus previously announced on September 20, 2010. The short-form base shelf prospectus was filed with the securities commissions in each of the provinces of Canada, except Quebec, and a corresponding shelf registration statement has been filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on Form F-10. Once the shelf registration statement becomes effective, these filings will, subject to securities regulatory requirements, allow the Company to make offerings of common shares, warrants, subscription receipts, debt securities, or any combination of such securities (all of the foregoing, collectively, the “Securities”) up to an aggregate offering price of CAD$300,000,000 during the 25 month period that the final short form base shelf prospectus, including any amendments thereto, remains effective. The Securities may be offered separately or together, in amounts, at prices and on terms to be determined based on market conditions at the time of sale and set forth in an accompanying shelf prospectus supplement and, subject to applicable regulations, may include ‘at-the-market’ transactions, private placements, public offerings or strategic investments.
Unless otherwise specified in a prospectus supplement, the net proceeds from the sale of the Securities will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes, including, but not limited to providing additional funding necessary to finance the Prosperity project. Each prospectus supplement will contain specific information concerning the use of proceeds from that sale of Securities.
This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these Securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
A copy of the preliminary short-form base shelf prospectus may be obtained from the Company by directing a request to Taseko Mines Limited at #300, 905 West Pender Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V6C 1L6, Telephone 604-684-6365, Attn: Corporate Secretary.
