Kinross Round Mountain spreads holiday cheer

Kinross Round Mountain kicked off the month of December with the return of  a holiday-themed tradition – the lighting of a  60-foot Christmas tree  that can be seen as far as 10 miles away from the mine site.

Round Mountain’s Christmas tree was a tradition started in the early 1980s, intended to bring joy and holiday cheer to the mine and community. This year, Pam Franks, Project Superintendent, Round Mountain, brought up the idea of bringing the holiday spirit to the mine by constructing and lighting the tree once again. The Maintenance team worked hard to construct the tree, with help from the weld shop at the mine who constructed the star on top.

A special thank you to employees of the Round Mountain maintenance team:
David Gines, Danny Buelna, Bryan Hover, Ricky Hutchason, Bob Gilmore, Corwin Mantendale, Matt Stark, Jim Gorly, Sam Lauver, Victor Traviso
