The Federal Panel reviewing the proposed New Prosperity Gold-Copper Mine Project has invited the public to comment on additional information filed by the proponent, Taseko Mines Limited.

The additional information was provided in response to questions the panel sent to the proponent on November 26 and December 10, 2012. The questions were issued following the panel's review of the Environmental Impact Statement ( EIS ), submitted by the proponent on September 26, 2012, and the panel's review of the comments received during the public comment period.

The panel is providing a 15-day public comment period to give Aboriginal groups, the public, governments and other participants an opportunity to submit their views in writing to the panel on the adequacy and technical merit of the additional information submitted by the proponent as measured against the EIS Guidelines. The opportunity to present more detailed views and information on the project and its environmental effects will be provided at a subsequent public hearing.
