Taseko Reports Significantly Improved Adjusted EBITDA* of $76 Million for the 
                              Third Quarter 2021 
 
This release should be read with the Company's Financial Statements and 
Management Discussion & Analysis ("MD&A"), available at www.tasekomines.com and 
filed on www.sedar.com. Except where otherwise noted, all currency amounts are 
stated in Canadian dollars. Taseko's 75% owned Gibraltar Mine is located north 
of the City of Williams Lake in south-central British Columbia. Production 
volumes stated in this release are on a 100% basis unless otherwise indicated. 
 
VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 3, 2021 -- Taseko Mines Limited (TSX: TKO) (NYSE American: 
TGB) (LSE: TKO) ("Taseko" or the "Company") reports revenues of $132.6 million, 
Earnings from mining operations before depletion and amortization* of $83.7 
million, Adjusted EBITDA* of $76.3 million and Adjusted net income* of $27.0 
million, or $0.10 per share, in the third quarter of 2021. 
 
Stuart McDonald, President and CEO of Taseko, stated, "Gibraltar produced 34.5 
million pounds of copper in the third quarter, a 29% increase over the prior 
quarter, as copper grades improved in line with our expectations and the mine 
plan. Higher metal production led to lower unit costs as Total operating costs 
(C1)* fell to US$1.57 per pound produced, 22% lower than the previous quarter. 
Copper markets remained robust through the period, resulting in Adjusted EBITDA 
* of $76 million, which is 60% higher than the previous quarter and 140% higher 
than the comparative period last year." 
 
"During the third quarter, the Gibraltar pit started producing ore to 
supplement existing production from the Pollyanna pit. The combined ore feed is 
being efficiently processed and the transition to the Gibraltar pit will 
continue over the next few quarters. We expect a strong fourth quarter and 
copper production for the year should be in line with the previous guidance of 
approximately 120 million pounds. 
 
At Florence, we continue to advance detailed engineering and have made initial 
deposits on long-lead equipment orders, which we believe will mitigate the 
impact of heightening global supply chain issues on the construction schedule. 
Recent feedback from the US Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") on the 
draft Underground Injection Control ("UIC") permit is that no new issues have 
arisen, but final drafting and review of the permit is taking longer than 
anticipated. We expect to receive the draft permit from the EPA shortly and 
once received, will complete our review within the allotted timeframe and look 
forward to the public comment period commencing," continued Mr. McDonald. 
 
"Our balance sheet remains strong and our cash position increased 
quarter-over-quarter to $239 million, despite the $15 million of capital 
spending at Florence and a $18 million semi-annual interest payment on our 
bonds during the period. We now have approximately $300 million in available 
liquidity and are well positioned to move into our next phase of growth with 
construction of the Florence Copper commercial production facility," concluded 
Mr. McDonald. 
 
Third Quarter Review 
 
  * Third quarter earnings from mining operations before depletion and 
    amortization* was $83.7 million, Adjusted EBITDA* was $76.3 million and 
    cash flows from operations was $68.3 million; 
  * Adjusted net income* was $27.0 million ($0.10 per share), a 171% increase 
    from the second quarter; 
  * Site operating costs, net of by-product credits* were US$1.28 per pound 
    produced, and total operating costs (C1)* were US$1.57 per pound produced; 
  * The Gibraltar mine produced 34.5 million pounds of copper and 571 thousand 
    pounds of molybdenum in the third quarter, increases of 29% and 42% over 
    the second quarter, respectively. Copper recoveries were 84.2% and copper 
    head grades were 0.28%, in line with management expectations; 
  * Gibraltar sold 32.4 million pounds of copper in the quarter (100% basis) 
    which contributed to $132.6 million of revenue for Taseko, an increase of 
    19% over the second quarter.  Average realized copper prices were US$4.26 
    per pound in the quarter, consistent with the LME average price; 
  * The Company has approximately $300 million of available liquidity, 
    including a cash balance of $239 million at September 30, 2021 and a US$50 
    million revolving credit facility (the "Facility").  The Facility, which 
    closed in early October, was arranged and fully underwritten by National 
    Bank of Canada, will be available for working capital and general corporate 
    purposes, and provides additional financial flexibility as the Company 
    prepares for the construction at Florence Copper; 
  * Development costs incurred for Florence Copper were $19.1 million in the 
    third quarter and included  detailed engineering and design of the 
    commercial facility, and initial deposits for major processing equipment 
    associated with the solvent extraction and electrowinning ("SX/EW") plant. 
    These activities will allow the project team to efficiently advance into 
    construction upon receipt of the Underground Injection Control ("UIC") 
    permit; 
  * The EPA continues to make progress towards finalizing the UIC permit with 
    no significant issues raised to-date, and the Company is expecting to 
    receive the draft permit from the EPA shortly for its review.  Once 
    publicly issued by the EPA, there will be a public comment period; 
  * The Company has secured minimum copper price protection for the coming 
    quarters including copper collars for the first half of 2022 which secure a 
    minimum copper price of US$4.00 per pound and a ceiling price of US$5.60 
    per pound for 43 million pounds of copper; and 
  * In September 2021, the Company completed the sale of the Harmony Gold 
    Project ("Harmony") to JDS Gold Inc. ("JDS Gold"), a newly incorporated 
    company controlled by JDS Energy & Mining Inc. and affiliates. Under the 
    terms of the agreement, JDS Gold became the owner and operator of Harmony, 
    a high-grade development-stage gold project located on Graham Island in 
    Haida Gwaii.  The Company retained a 2% net smelter return royalty in 
    Harmony and a 15% carried interest in JDS Gold.

Third Quarter Review 
 
Copper production in the third quarter was 34.5 million pounds and improved 29% 
over the second quarter as higher ore grades were mined and processed from the 
Pollyanna pit.  Copper recoveries also improved with the increasing ore 
grade. 
 
A total of 25.2 million tons were mined in the third quarter in line with the 
mine plan and the second quarter.  The strip ratio decreased as a result of 
mining in Pollyanna opening higher grade areas with lower stripping rates. 
There was also an increase of 3.7 million tons added to ore stockpiles.  While 
Pollyanna ore remains the primary mill feed, waste stripping activities also 
increased in the Gibraltar East pit during the quarter. 
 
Total site spending (including capitalized stripping of $10.9 million on a 75% 
basis) was 4% lower than the prior quarter due mainly to the timing of routine 
maintenance.  Sustaining capital expenditures at Gibraltar of $8.3 million on a 
75% basis in the third quarter was comparable to the second quarter.

REVIEW OF OPERATIONS - CONTINUED 
 
Molybdenum production was 571 thousand pounds in the third quarter and 
increased due to higher grades of molybdenum in the ore. Molybdenum prices also 
strengthened in the third quarter and reached a high of US$20.10 per pound in 
late August.  The average molybdenum price of US$19.05 per pound was a US$4.73 
per pound increase over the second quarter.  By-product credits per pound of 
copper produced remained at US$0.25 in the third quarter despite the increased 
copper production. 
 
Off-property costs per pound produced* were US$0.29 for the third quarter and 
higher than the second quarter due to increased trucking of concentrate in July 
and August in response to wildfires in the BC interior which impacted railcar 
movements.  The Company also realized lower treatment and refining charges 
("TCRC") in the second quarter as a spot tender was delivered at one of the 
lowest TCRC levels ever seen by the Gibraltar mine. 
 
Total operating costs per pound produced (C1)* were US$1.57 for the quarter, 
22% lower than the previous quarter. The decrease in C1* costs was primarily 
due to the significantly increased copper production in the third quarter 
compared to the second quarter. 
 
GIBRALTAR OUTLOOK 
 
Total copper production in the last quarter of 2021 is expected to be similar 
to the third quarter, as higher-grade areas in the Pollyanna pit are available 
for processing. The Company continues to expect approximately 120 million 
pounds of copper production for the 2021 year. 
 
Copper prices in the third quarter averaged US$4.25 per pound and are currently 
around US$4.30 per pound and recently tested record levels again due to 
depleted warehouse inventories and a unique supply squeeze attributed to 
smelter closures resulting from an Asian and European energy crisis as well as 
continued supply chain challenges caused by the economic restart.  High copper 
prices, and downside protection from copper hedges in place, are supportive of 
strong financial performance at the Gibraltar mine over the coming quarters. 
 
The copper price outlook into 2022 remains quite favorable with many 
governments now focusing on increased infrastructure investment to stimulate 
economic recovery after the pandemic, including green initiatives, which will 
require new primary supplies of copper. Although some analysts predict a 
balanced market by 2023 based on known projects currently under development, 
most industry analysts are projecting ongoing supply constraints and deficits, 
which should support higher copper prices in the years to come. 
 
The Company has a long track record of purchasing copper price options to 
manage copper price volatility.  This strategy provides security over the 
Company's cash flow as it prepares for construction of Florence Copper while 
providing significant upside should copper prices continue at these levels or 
increase further.  In particular, the Company has copper collars to secure a 
minimum copper price of US$4.00 per pound for the first half of 2022 for 43 
million pounds of copper.

FLORENCE COPPER 
 
The commercial production facility at Florence Copper will be one of the 
greenest sources of copper for US domestic consumption, with carbon emissions, 
water and energy consumption all dramatically lower than a conventional mine. 
It is a low-cost copper project with an annual production capacity of 85 
million pounds of copper over a 21-year mine life.  With the expected C1* 
operating cost of US$1.10 per pound, Florence Copper will be in the lowest 
quartile of the global copper cost curve. 
 
The Company has successfully operated a Production Test Facility ("PTF") since 
2018 at Florence to demonstrate that the in-situ copper recovery ("ISCR") 
process can produce high quality cathode while operating within permit 
conditions. 
 
The next phase of Florence Copper will be the construction and operation of the 
commercial ISCR facility with an estimated capital cost of US$230 million 
(including reclamation bonding and working capital). At a conservative copper 
price of US$3.00 per pound, Florence Copper is expected to generate an 
after-tax internal rate of return of 37%, an after-tax net present value of 
US$680 million at a 7.5% discount rate, and an after-tax payback period of 2.5 
years. 
 
In December 2020, the Company received the Aquifer Protection Permit ("APP") 
from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality ("ADEQ").  During the APP 
process, Florence Copper received strong support from local community members, 
business owners and elected officials.  The other required permit is the UIC 
permit from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA"), which is the 
final permitting step required prior to construction of the commercial ISCR 
facility.  The EPA continues to make progress towards finalizing the permit 
with no significant issues raised to-date, and the Company is expecting to 
receive the draft UIC permit from the EPA shortly.  Once the permit is publicly 
issued, a public comment period will commence. 
 
Detailed engineering and design for the commercial production facility is now 
approximately 85% complete.  The Company has made initial deposits and awarded 
the key contract for the major processing equipment associated with the SX/EW 
plant in the third quarter.  The Company has made purchase commitments of US$25 
million as at September 30, 2021 to assist with protecting the project 
execution plan and mitigating the impact of supply chain disruptions. 
Deploying strategic capital and awarding key contracts will ensure a smooth and 
efficient transition into construction once the final UIC permit is received. 
 
At current copper prices, the Company expects to be able to fund construction 
of the commercial facility from its existing sources of liquidity and cashflows 
from Gibraltar. 
 
LONG-TERM GROWTH STRATEGY 
 
Taseko's strategy has been to grow the Company by acquiring and developing a 
pipeline of complementary projects focused on copper in stable mining 
jurisdictions.  We continue to believe this will generate long-term returns for 
shareholders.  Our other development projects are located in British Columbia.

LONG-TERM GROWTH STRATEGY - CONTINUED 
 
Yellowhead Copper Project 
 
Yellowhead Mining Inc. ("Yellowhead") has an 817 million tonnes reserve and a 
25-year mine life with a pre-tax net present value of $1.3 billion at an 8% 
discount rate using a US$3.10 per pound copper price. Capital costs of the 
project are estimated at $1.3 billion over a 2-year construction period.  Over 
the first 5 years of operation, the copper equivalent grade will average 0.35% 
producing an average of 200 million pounds of copper per year at an average C1* 
cost, net of by-product credit, of US$1.67 per pound of copper. The Yellowhead 
copper project contains valuable precious metal by-products with 440,000 ounces 
of gold and 19 million ounces of silver with a life of mine value of over $1 
billion at current prices. 
 
The Company is focusing its current efforts on advancing into the environmental 
assessment process and is undertaking some additional engineering work in 
conjunction with ongoing engagement with local communities including First 
Nations.  The Company is also collecting baseline data and modeling which will 
be used to support the environmental assessment and permitting of the project. 
 
New Prosperity Gold-Copper Project 
 
In late 2019, the T?ilhqot'in Nation, as represented by T?ilhqot'in National 
Government, and Taseko entered into a confidential dialogue, facilitated by the 
Province of British Columbia, to try to obtain a long-term solution to the 
conflict regarding Taseko's proposed gold-copper mine currently known as New 
Prosperity, acknowledging Taseko's commercial interests and the T?ilhqot'in 
Nation's opposition to the project.  The dialogue was supported by the parties' 
agreement on December 7, 2019 to a one-year standstill on certain outstanding 
litigation and regulatory matters that relate to Taseko's tenures and the area 
in the vicinity of Te?tan Biny (Fish Lake). 
 
The COVID-19 pandemic delayed the commencement of the dialogue, but the T? 
ilhqot'in Nation, the Province of British Columbia and Taseko have made 
progress in establishing a constructive dialogue. In December 2020, the parties 
agreed to extend the standstill for a further year to continue this dialogue. 
 
Aley Niobium Project 
 
Environmental monitoring and product marketing initiatives on the Aley niobium 
project continue. The pilot plant program has successfully completed the 
niobium flotation process portion of the test, raising confidence in the design 
and providing feed to the converter portion of the process. Completion of the 
converter pilot test will provide additional process data to support the design 
of the commercial process facilities and provide final product samples for 
marketing purposes. 
 
The Company will host a telephone conference call and live webcast on Thursday, 
November 4, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time (8:00 a.m. Pacific time) to discuss 
these results.  After opening remarks by management, there will be a question 
and answer session open to analysts and investors.  The conference call may be 
accessed by dialing 416-764-8688 in Canada, 888-390-0546 in the United States,

NON-GAAP PERFORMANCE MEASURES 
 
This document includes certain non-GAAP performance measures that do not have a 
standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. These measures may differ from those 
used by, and may not be comparable to such measures as reported by, other 
issuers. The Company believes that these measures are commonly used by certain 
investors, in conjunction with conventional IFRS measures, to enhance their 
understanding of the Company's performance. These measures have been derived 
from the Company's financial statements and applied on a consistent basis. The 
following tables below provide a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to 
the most directly comparable IFRS measure. 
 
Total operating costs and site operating costs, net of by-product credits 
 
Total costs of sales include all costs absorbed into inventory, as well as 
transportation costs and insurance recoverable. Site operating costs are 
calculated by removing net changes in inventory, depletion and amortization, 
insurance recoverable, and transportation costs from cost of sales. Site 
operating costs, net of by-product credits is calculated by subtracting 
by-product credits from the site operating costs. Site operating costs, net of 
by-product credits per pound are calculated by dividing the aggregate of the 
applicable costs by copper pounds produced. Total operating costs per pound is 
the sum of site operating costs, net of by-product credits and off-property 
costs divided by the copper pounds produced. By-product credits are calculated 
based on actual sales of molybdenum (net of treatment costs) and silver during 
the period divided by the total pounds of copper produced during the period. 
These measures are calculated on a consistent basis for the periods presented.

NON-GAAP PERFORMANCE MEASURES - CONTINUED 
 
Adjusted net income (loss) 
 
Adjusted net income (loss) removes the effect of the following transactions 
from net income as reported under IFRS: 
 
  * Unrealized foreign currency gains/losses; 
  * Unrealized gain/loss on derivatives; and 
  * Loss on settlement of long-term debt and call premium, including realized 
    foreign exchange gains. 
 
Management believes these transactions do not reflect the underlying operating 
performance of our core mining business and are not necessarily indicative of 
future operating results. Furthermore, unrealized gains/losses on derivative 
instruments, changes in the fair value of financial instruments, and unrealized 
foreign currency gains/losses are not necessarily reflective of the underlying 
operating results for the reporting periods presented.

Adjusted EBITDA 
 
Adjusted EBITDA is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company's 
performance and ability to service debt. Adjusted EBITDA is frequently used by 
securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation 
of companies in the industry, many of which present Adjusted EBITDA when 
reporting their results.  Issuers of "high yield" securities also present 
Adjusted EBITDA because investors, analysts and rating agencies consider it 
useful in measuring the ability of those issuers to meet debt service 
obligations. 
 
Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before interest, income taxes, and 
depreciation and also eliminates the impact of a number of items that are not 
considered indicative of ongoing operating performance. Certain items of 
expense are added and certain items of income are deducted from net income that 
are not likely to recur or are not indicative of the Company's underlying 
operating results for the reporting periods presented or for future operating 
performance and consist of: 
 
  * Unrealized foreign exchange gains/losses; 
  * Unrealized gain/loss on derivatives; 
  * Loss on settlement of long term debt (included in finance expenses) and 
    call premium; 
  * Realized foreign exchange gain on settlement of long-term debt; and 
  * Amortization of share-based compensation expense.

CAUTION REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION 
 
This document contains "forward-looking statements" that were based on Taseko's 
expectations, estimates and projections as of the dates as of which those 
statements were made. Generally, these forward-looking statements can be 
identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "outlook", 
"anticipate", "project", "target", "believe", "estimate", "expect", "intend", 
"should" and similar expressions. 
 
Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, 
uncertainties and other factors that may cause the Company's actual results, 
level of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from 
those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. These included 
but are not limited to: 
 
  * uncertainties about the effect of COVID-19 and the response of local, 
    provincial, federal and international governments to the threat of COVID-19 
    on our operations (including our suppliers, customers, supply chain, 
    employees and contractors) and economic conditions generally and in 
    particular with respect to the demand for copper and other metals we 
    produce; 
  * uncertainties and costs related to the Company's exploration and 
    development activities, such as those associated with continuity of 
    mineralization or determining whether mineral resources or reserves exist 
    on a property; 
  * uncertainties related to the accuracy of our estimates of mineral reserves, 
    mineral resources, production rates and timing of production, future 
    production and future cash and total costs of production and milling; 
  * uncertainties related to feasibility studies that provide estimates of 
    expected or anticipated costs, expenditures and economic returns from a 
    mining project; 
  * uncertainties related to the ability to obtain necessary licenses permits 
    for development projects and project delays due to third party opposition; 
  * uncertainties related to unexpected judicial or regulatory proceedings; 
  * changes in, and the effects of, the laws, regulations and government 
    policies affecting our exploration and development activities and mining 
    operations, particularly laws, regulations and policies; 
  * changes in general economic conditions, the financial markets and in the 
    demand and market price for copper, gold and other minerals and 
    commodities, such as diesel fuel, steel, concrete, electricity and other 
    forms of energy, mining equipment, and fluctuations in exchange rates, 
    particularly with respect to the value of the U.S. dollar and Canadian 
    dollar, and the continued availability of capital and financing; 
  * the effects of forward selling instruments to protect against fluctuations 
    in copper prices and exchange rate movements and the risks of counterparty 
    defaults, and mark to market risk; 
  * the risk of inadequate insurance or inability to obtain insurance to cover 
    mining risks; 
  * the risk of loss of key employees; the risk of changes in accounting 
    policies and methods we use to report our financial condition, including 
    uncertainties associated with critical accounting assumptions and 
    estimates; 
  * environmental issues and liabilities associated with mining including 
    processing and stock piling ore; and 
  * labour strikes, work stoppages, or other interruptions to, or difficulties 
    in, the employment of labour in markets in which we operate mines, or 
    environmental hazards, industrial accidents or other events or occurrences, 
    including third party interference that interrupt the production of 
    minerals in our mines.

Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Information 
 
This discussion includes certain statements that may be deemed "forward-looking 
statements".  All statements in this discussion, other than statements of 
historical facts, that address future production, reserve potential, 
exploration drilling, exploitation activities, and events or developments that 
the Company expects are forward-looking statements.  Although we believe the 
expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements are based on

prices, exploitation and exploration successes, continued availability of 
capital and financing and general economic, market or business conditions. 
Investors are cautioned that any such statements are not guarantees of future 
performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those 
projected in the forward-looking statements.  All of the forward-looking 
statements made in this MD&A are qualified by these cautionary statements.  We 
disclaim any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking 
statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise,
