In the community


For a number of years, Kinross has engaged in a stable, consultative and constructive relationship with the Western Shoshone Native Americans, who have roots in the Round Mountain area. In 2007, Round Mountain Gold Corporation (RMGC) and the Western Shoshone Descendants of Big Smoky Valley signed a Memorandum of Agreement. The Agreement remains a cornerstone of the relationship and has had several positive outcomes, including relocation of a proposed access road to accommodate Western Shoshone concerns and the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which expresses their support for extending the life of the mine. As part of the MOU, there is a provision to ensure monitors are present as needed to watch for ancestral markers such as artifacts and gravesites during site or infrastructure development work.
