Taseko Mines said its crews are preparing to return to the mine site after a tentative deal was reached for its union workforce at the Gibraltar copper-molybdenum in the Cariboo region of south-central British Columbia, Canada.

Company president and CEO Russell Hallbauer said June 16 that operations should resume this week following planned voting and ratification of the new agreement.

The workers’ strike first began at midnight local time on May 21. The mine was subsequently placed on care and maintenance.

Gibraltar is the second largest open-pit copper mine in Canada. It has a life of mine annual production of 130 million pounds.
