2011 Data tables

The 2011 Data Tables are an indicator supplement to Kinross’ 2011 Corporate Responsibility Report and represent our 2011 corporate responsibility performance based on the criteria of Global Reporting Initiative G3 Guidelines. Available performance data is reported both on a corporate-wide and site-specific basis for the last five fiscal years ended December 31st for 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007.

Environmental indicators for energy, greenhouse gases, water use, water, materials use and waste are reported on an equity-basis as per Kinross’ share of ownership as follows: Round Mountain (50%), Kupol (75% until April 27, 2011 and 100% ownership thereafter) and Chirano (90%) unless otherwise stated. Data for safety performance, environmental regulatory and land use are all reported on a 100% basis. Data for Chirano and Tasiast are reported subsequent to the close of Kinross’ acquisition of Red Back Mining on September 17, 2010 excluding detailed environmental data for 2010. Frequency rates in all safety data are per 200,000 hours worked. Safety performance data has also been reported for our non-operating growth projects at Fruta del Norte, Lobo-Marte and Dvoinoye. On June 28, 2012, Kinross announced that it had completed the sale of its 50% ownership position in the Crixás mine (Serra Grande) to an affiliate of Anglo-Gold Ashanti. As a result, we have not reported on environmental performance for Crixás for 2011 and prior reporting years but we have included 2011 data in the areas of safety and energy performance. Environmental data reported on a corporate-wide basis has been adjusted for 2010 and 2009 to reflect the removal of performance data for Crixás.

  1. 1 Represents tonnes of ore processed based on Kinross’ share of ownership including Kupol (75% until April 27, 2011 and 100% thereafter), Chirano (90%), Round Mountain (50%) and Crixás (50%). For 2006 and part of 2007, La Coipa and Maricunga reflects 50% ownership.
  2. 2 “Attributable” includes Kinross’ share of production Kupol (75% until April 27, 2011 and 100% thereafter), Chirano (90%), Round Mountain (50%) and Crixás (50%).
  3. 3 Because of the remote location of most operations municipal water use is minimal and not reported.
  4. 4 Based on Kinross’s share of ownership and excludes tonnes of ore processed from Tasiast and Chirano.
  5. 5 Includes a one-time amount of 15,981 tonnes of petroleum-contaminated soils at Round Mountain, which had been stored in mine site bioremediation cells. In 2011 these soils were characterized as non-hazardous waste and disposed of in a permitted on-site facility.
  6. 6 Includes current Kinross operations and closed sites.
