Proposed Prosperity Mine Site

There has been considerable attention in the press about the fate of Fish Lake and the proposed Prosperity Mine in the Chilcotin. I was curious to see exactly where all of this development was expected to occur.

Since Fish Lake or Teztan Biny is north of the spectacular Taseko Lakes, and next to the Taseko River, that eventually leads to the Fraser River, this area is part of the Salish Sea watershed. If you wish to explore the area in Google Earth, click this link >> Fish Lake region

    From the Vancouver Sun today:

    The federal government blocked a controversial gold-copper mine in B.C.’s Chilcotin region on Tuesday, saying the proposed project would devastate an entire ecosystem around the environmentally and culturally sensitive Fish Lake.

    “We believe in balancing resource stewardship with economic development,” federal environment minister Jim Prentice said in a written statement explaining his government’s decision to reject a proposal for the open-pit Prosperity mine, planned about 125 kilometres southwest of Williams Lake.

    “The significant adverse environmental effects of the Prosperity project cannot be justified as it is currently proposed.”
