Kinross Gold Corporation is a Canadian-based gold and silver mining company. The company’s mines are in Brazil, Ghana, Mauritania, Russia and the United States.

The Tasiast Gold Mine is an open pit gold mine in Mauritania, 300 kilometres north of the capital of Nouakchott. The Tasiast optimization study recommended a two-phased expansion that leverages the existing mill infrastructure. Phase One of the expansion increases the mill throughput from the current 8 ktpd to 12 ktpd. Phase Two increases the mill throughput from 12 ktpd to 30 ktpd with the installation of additional milling, leaching, thickening and refinery capacity.
