How many years will it take Brian Battison to stop banging his head against this particular brick wall? My guess is around the same time as Taseko declares bankruptcy, which shouldn't be much longer. Even mining companies with deep pockets run out of litigation funds eventually.

Gold and copper to stay in the ground as a result. To bad for MJ, these are the minerals used to create the electric cars that will save the environment. Not in our backyard though, the materials will have to come from another country.

The rejection of the New Prosperity mine has been blamed on NYMBY's. That is not the case. It was rejected twice by the Federal government (at that time a Conservative government) for poor environmental design. The company said that a "special liner" for its gigantic tailings pond would make the project safe and environmentally friendly. Unfortunately, liners tend to leak over time and are almost impossible to repair when they begin to leak.

Here is another example of a company wishing to use old technology and processes to maximize its profits are the expense of the environment. If the company had proposed a tailings solidification process, then that might have made a difference in the approval process.

It is high time that mining companies realized that improved technology will increase their chances of resource development in areas where the environment is relatively pristine.
