Vancouver-based Taseko Mines has received approvals for $100-million in additional financing for the Florence project, which will supply 85-million pounds a year of copper when in full production.

Taurus Mining Royalty Fund will provide a $50-million royalty and Societe Generale approved a $50-million senior secured debt facility.

Upon closing and satisfaction of conditions precedent, the proceeds from these project level financings will be available to fund the construction and development of the commercial production facility at Florence, in Arizona.

“The Taurus royalty and the project loan facility from Societe Generale complement the previously announced commitments from Mitsui and Bank of America. A total of $175-million from these four well-regarded industry participants is a strong endorsement of Florence Copper’s technical merits, attractive economics, and favourable environmental attributes,” said president and CEO Stuart McDonald.

Taseko has recently wrapped up permitting for the copper project and with these new financings set to close in the coming months, the company is preparing to start building the commercial facility at Florence.

The company operated a production test facility at Florence for 18 months, which provided it with an opportunity to test operational controls and strategies that would be applied in future commercial operations.

The project has a net present value of $930-million, an internal rate of return of 47% and a payback period of 2.6 years.

Over its 22-year mine life, Florence will produce 1.5-billion pounds of copper at an operating cost of $1.11/lb of copper.

Country Thunder Arizona 2024: Complete lineup, how to get tickets and more

CMA Entertainer of the Year Lainey Wilson, Jelly Roll, Eric Church and Koe Wetzel are set to headline Country Thunder Arizona when the four-day festiv...

CMA Entertainer of the Year Lainey Wilson, Jelly Roll, Eric Church and Koe Wetzel are set to headline Country Thunder Arizona when the four-day festival returns to Canyon Moon Ranch in Florence the weekend of April 11-14, 2024.

Warren Zeiders, Nate Smith, Priscilla Block, Diamond Rio, Alana Springsteen, Randy Houser, Flatland Cavalry, Stephen Wilson Jr., Avery Anna, Randall King, Dallas Smith, Jake Worthington, Halle Kearns, the Bellamy Brothers and Lauren Watkins are the other acts that have been announced so far, though more will be announced in the coming weeks.

In a press release, Country Thunder Music Festival's CEO Troy Vollhoffer said, “We know the fans have been waiting, and we’re excited to release the soundtrack to what is destined to be the party of the year.”

Vollhoffer went on to say, “Arizona has some of the most passionate country fans in the world, and we wanted to bring them a weekend they’ll never forget with some of the most talented performers we’ve ever had on our stage.”

Who's headlining Country Thunder Arizona 2024?

Wilson is headed to Country Thunder fresh from cleaning up at both major country awards. The Country Music Association named her Female Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year while naming “Bell Bottom Country” Album of the Year.

She also picked up Female Artist of the Year and Album of the Year from the Academy of Country Music, while winning musical event and video awards from both groups for “Wait in the Truck,” a collaboration with Hardy.

Wilson’s hits include three songs that topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart: “Things A Man Oughta Know,” the Cole Swindell collaboration “Never Say Never” and her latest single, “Watermelon Moonshine.”

A seven-time ACM Award winner, four-time CMA Award winner (including the 2020 award for Entertainer of the Year) and 10-time GRAMMY nominee, Church is sure to thrill the crowd when he returns to Country Thunder Arizona.

Known for his marathon sets and hailed in Pollstar as “having already long established himself as one of the most successful touring country artists,” Church won Top Country Tour at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards.

And it certainly felt like witnessing an award-winning performer in September when Church brought the Outsiders Revival tour to Talking Stick Resort Amphitheatre in Phoenix, proving he can be a Country Music Jesus while channeling Springsteen.

Church's hits include the multi-platinum country chart-toppers “Drink in My Hand,” “Springsteen,” “Give Me Back My Hometown,” “Talladega” and “Record Year.”

Jelly Roll has quietly been building a remarkable career under the radar and on his own terms. Since his days selling mix tapes out of his car, he has constantly released new music (more than 24 albums) and toured relentlessly, topping various iTunes charts while amassing nearly 2 billion views on YouTube.

He pairs deeply personal lyrics with music that blends old-school hip-hop, classic rock, country and soul. His hits include the country chart-toppers “Son of a Sinner” and “Need a Favor.” He also topped the mainstream-rock charts with a song called “Dead Man Walking.”

Jelly Roll was named New Artist of the Year by the Country Music Association.

He was an enigmatic force of nature in September, opening for Church at Talking Stick Resort Amphitheatre, where he told the crowd he’s all about “real music for people with problems.”

Koe Wetzel has moved more than 1 million units under the radar while tallying more than 1.3 billion streams and earning a reputation as one of the hottest live performers in the game.

His best-known songs include “Creeps,” “Money Spent” and “Cabo.”

Wildfire Go-Kit:

Residents in wildfire-prone areas are urged to have an emergency supplies kit to bring with them of they are evacuated from their homes, especially as Arizona residents are beginning to see early widespread fire activity throughout the state.

An emergency supply kit should be put together long before a wildfire or another disaster occurs. Make sure to keep it easily accessible so you can take it with you when you have to evacuate.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that residents near a disaster store emergency supplies in a plastic tub, small suitcase, trash can, backpack, or other containers.

Residents should make sure they have the necessities, such as three gallons of water per person and a three-day supply of ready-to-eat food, the NFPA said. A first-aid kit, prescription medications, contact lenses, and non-prescription drugs should also be taken into account.

Copies of any important family documents, including insurance policies, identification, bank account records, and emergency contact numbers should also be taken and put into a waterproof, portable container in your kit, the NFPA said.

The association lists other items that would help in a disaster, including:

Nocturnal Rainbows, a new book by Candace Atkinson, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

There is a point in everyone's life, a moment that changes your trajectory. A disruption to your linear path: inertia. What happened to me was just that, but that's not what is paramount, because somehow, I found my way back. I think, How do you know who you are? How do you know if you're being authentic? What small infractions caused so much chaos that it brought you to you?

If authenticity is the main contract, how do you sign it? How do you surrender to it? You don't. You surrender to more than you. You sign a contract within your soul that is connected to more than just your brain. In reality, you can't sign this contract because it was signed long before you even knew your brain, body, or consciousness. As Plato called them "forms", spiritualists call it a soul.

In this novel, all of the concerns I have progressed through, and are still living with, are addressed. As this work is a work in progress, as am I, it will be distributed in volumes.

About the Author Candace Atkinson has always had a passion for learning and a love for God, but her views were always unorthodox. Though baptized Christian and later raised Mormon, she never submitted to all the views that religious validation required, but still felt a deep connection to a higher power. After going through the traumas depicted in this fictional novel, she had a profound spiritual awakening at the age of 23 after six months of meditating, and having never inquired into mysticism or Hinduism, she found a new way of thinking, living and being.

It is her hope that through the description of her trials, maybe just one person can amble through on their own a little more graciously than she may have.

Nocturnal Rainbows is a 184-page paperback with a retail price of $17.00 (eBook $12.00). The ISBN is 978-1-6853-7277-4. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
