Products and services
EN26 Initiatives to mitigate environmental impacts of products and services, and extent of impact mitigation. Kinross’ precious metal products are not known to have significant environmental impacts.Mercury is a naturally occurring mineral in some of the ore we mine. Because all mercury compounds are toxic, Kinross takes considerable care to collect by-product mercury production and prevent its release into the environment. We have management systems in place at all of our operations, regulated under state and federal permits specific to each jurisdiction, to safely collect and transport mercury. We currently sell all the mercury we produce to a responsible mercury recycler. In 2011, Kinross produced 45 tonnes of mercury, all of which was sold to Bethlehem Apparatus Company in Pennsylvania. All of Kinross’ mercury production is from La Coipa in Chile. In response to growing concern about mercury in the environment (e.g. U.S. Mercury Export Ban Act of 2008), Kinross is developing a revised strategy for the disposal of by-product mercury from its operations. At this time we anticipate that future production within the US will be stabilized and placed into long-term storage (ultimately to be provided by the US Department of Energy). We continue to evaluate responsible disposal alternatives for our Chilean mercury production.  
EN27 Percentage of products sold and their packaging materials that are reclaimed by category. Due to the precious nature of our products, very large percentages are known to be recycled. Packaging associated with these products is negligible.

Transport
EN29 Significant environmental impacts of transporting products and other goods and materials used for the organization’s operations, and transporting members of the workforce. Environmental impacts of transportation of goods, services and people are comprehensively assessed in environmental planning documents and are monitored over the life of each Kinross operation.  Transportation corridors are selected based upon risk assessment and transport controls and mitigation implemented as needed. Emergency response plans include collaboration with local emergency response agencies. Potential impacts are mitigated in various ways, including risk assessment of transportation corridors and mitigation, contractual arrangements with shippers to control potential impacts, and emergency response labs and preparation. If and when they occur, spills associated with transportation are reported under our overall spills reporting. We also report on stakeholder concerns arising from transportation-related issues as part of our stakeholder issues management.  
Overall
EN30 Total environmental protection expenditures and investments by type. Environmental protection expenditures are directed to key areas including environmental monitoring, waste management and disposal, emissions reduction, as well as reclamation. These expenditures are considered an integral part of Kinross' ongoing operating costs and capital expenditure program at our sites and are not tracked and reported separately. Reclamation and remediation expenses were $12.2 million in 2011 and $6.3 million in 2010.
