Due to this zoning, industrial activities may not be carried out in some 58% of the deposit.

In December 2014, Taseko received a draft underground injection control permit from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The public has 60 days to comment on the permit. During this time, EPA will host a public hearing which may result in the modification of the permit before its final issuance. In order to commence construction of Phase 1, Taseko requires approval from the EPA for the final Underground Injection Control permit.
