Total sales in the first quarter were 21.5 million pounds of copper and 337 thousand pounds of molybdenum. 

"We have transformed Gibraltar from 60 million pounds of annual copper production and a 40-month mine plan to a modern 165 million pound per year producer with a 25 year mine life,” said Russell Hallbauer, president and CEO of Taseko. “This was achieved at the lowest capital cost of any major mining project in the world. We look forward to demonstrating both our production and cost capabilities in 2013."
 
Gibraltar is a joint venture owned by Taseko Mines Limited (75%) and Cariboo Copper Corp. (25%).
