      TASEKO ANNOUNCES MANPOWER REDUCTIONS BASED ON FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S DECISION ON PROSPERITY
      VANCOUVER, Nov. 4 /CNW/ - Taseko Mines Limited ("Taseko" or the "Company") announced today that a total of 65 jobs will be eliminated as a result of the November 2, 2010 Federal Government decision to not approve the Company's Prosperity Mine in the Cariboo-Chilcotin Region of British Columbia.

      Russell Hallbauer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Taseko said, "This represents the unfortunate impact of the Federal decision on Tuesday. The seriousness of the situation is heightened considering that a third of these positions were in the Williams Lake area which already suffers from high unemployment levels. It was a necessary step for the Company to take at this time. We have initiated discussions with the Federal and Provincial Governments to identify how we might advance the project and eventually provide the economic benefits including significant employment to the region."
