Florence Copper Project Map

The Florence Copper Project is an advanced-stage project that strengthens the Company's near-term development pipeline

Taseko’s wholly owned Florence Copper, an in-situ copper recovery project, is located midway between Phoenix and Tucson near the community of Florence, Arizona.

In September 2017, with all final permits in place, Taseko announced that it’s Board of Directors approved the construction of the Florence Copper Production Test Facility (PTF).

Successful operation of the PTF will be a major step towards realizing the full value of the Project.
