Taseko Mines Announces New US$50 Million Revolving Credit Facility and Update 
                         on Florence Copper Permitting 
 
VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 5, 2021 /CNW/ - Taseko Mines Limited (TSX: TKO) (NYSE MKT: 
TGB) (LSE: TKO) ("Taseko" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has 
signed a US$50 million Revolving Credit Facility (the "Facility"). The 
Facility, which is arranged and fully underwritten by National Bank of Canada, 
will be available for working capital and general corporate purposes. 
 
Stuart McDonald, President and CEO of Taseko, commented, "At current copper 
prices, we expect to fully fund construction of the Florence Copper Project 
with cashflow from Gibraltar operations and our existing cash balance. While we 
have no intention of drawing any funds from the new Facility on closing, it 
will further improve our already strong balance sheet and provide us with 
additional flexibility as we advance Florence towards production, making it 
America's newest source of low-carbon copper." 
 
Additionally, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") has advised 
Taseko that it intends to send a draft Underground Injection Control ("UIC") 
permit to the Company in mid-October and provide the Company with a two-week 
review period before the draft permit is formally issued, commencing the public 
comment period. 
 
Mr. McDonald continued, "The UIC permit is the final permitting step required 
prior to construction of Florence Copper, and the EPA continues to make 
progress towards finalizing the permit with no significant issues raised 
to-date. Receipt of the draft permit will represent another significant step 
towards Florence Copper being fully permitted and ready for construction." 
 
About the Revolving Credit Facility 
 
The Facility has an initial tenor of 42 months and is extendable annually 
thereafter.  The Facility will be secured by a first lien charge against 
Taseko's rights under the Gibraltar Joint Venture as well as its shares of 
Gibraltar Mines Ltd., Curis Holdings (Canada) Ltd., and Florence Holdings Inc. 
The Facility includes financial and other covenants commensurate with a 
corporate revolving credit facility of this nature. The Facility is expected to 
close this week upon satisfaction of customary closing conditions. A copy of 
the Facility agreement will be available on the SEDAR website ( www.sedar.com).
