Hatch to establish BC transmission line
July 28, 2008
Hatch Energy has been retained by Taseko Mines to establish a final route alignment for a transmission line that will provide power to the Prosperity Mine in the southern interior of British Columbia.
Hatch Energy will complete basic engineering for the 125-km, 230-kV transmission line, and provide cost estimates to determine long-term development possibilities.
The Prosperity Mine is estimated to contain 5.3 billion pounds of copper and 13.3 million ounces of gold.
Basic engineering is scheduled to be completed by early September 2008, with the transmission line scheduled to be in service by mid-2010.
Hatch Energy offices in Winnipeg, Castlegar, and Oakville are undertaking the project.
