Any failure by Defendants' to timely file the amendment could result in a delay of the special meeting of Taseko shareholders, scheduled for May 10, 2016.

Vote the YELLOW Proxy Today
Every vote counts. If the RRC Nominees are elected, the value of your investment will be at risk. Even if a shareholder previously voted a blue proxy, a later-dated YELLOW proxy will cancel the earlier vote.
Taseko encourages shareholders to read the proxy contest related materials to understand the main reasons to reject RRC and its baseless attack against Taseko directors Russ Hallbauer, Ron Thiessen and Robert Dickinson. Shareholder materials are available at www.tasekomines.com/proxy-contest and on SEDAR, www.sedar.com.
The proxy voting deadline is 10 am (Pacific Time) on May 6, 2016. Shareholders with questions about voting their shares should call Laurel Hill Advisory Group at 1-877-452-7184 (toll free) or by email at email@example.com. The Special Meeting is scheduled to be held at The Pinnacle Hotel, 138 Victory Ship Way, North Vancouver, British Columbia, on May 10, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. local time.
