DESCRIPTION

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

The Tasiast Gold Mine Expansion Project is an open-pit gold mine in Mauritania, 300 km 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 increased the mill throughput from the current 8 ktpd to 12 ktpd. Phase Two increased the mill throughput from 12 ktpd to 30 ktpd with the installation of equipment allowing additional milling, leaching, thickening, and refinery capacity.
