Growth through Exploration

We are committed to the responsible discovery of great gold deposits.

Kinross Exploration is active in mine-site, brownfield and greenfield initiatives across four continents.

We are also committed to establishing mutually-beneficial partnerships with promising junior exploration companies.


In North America, we are focused on mine site and near mine exploration in and around our Fort Knox mine in Alaska, Round Mountain mine in Nevada and Kettle River-Buckhorn mine in Washington, as well as development and grassroots exploration in Canada.

South American exploration is active in Chile and Brazil, ranging from greenfield exploration, and mine site and brownfield exploration around our La Coipa mine and Lobo-Marte project in Chile.

West Africa

In West Africa, our exploration is focused on mine site and brownfield exploration at Tasiast on the Reguibat Shield in Mauritania, as well as mine exploration at our Chirano mine in the Sefwi-Bibiani Belt of Ghana.



Most of our exploration activities in Russia is centered in the vicinity of the Okhotsk-Chukotka Arc Volcanic Belt in the Russian Far East.
