In April, the Kinross Nevada team hosted outreach sessions at local high schools across the state to promote the mining industry and the benefits of working at Kinross.
Representatives from our Bald Mountain and Round Mountain mines traveled from Reno to Las Vegas and other communities in between to share the opportunities available at our operations with incentives including high paying jobs, scholarships and career development prospects at our mines.
Over the course of the month, the representatives met with 200 students and attended the 32nd annual ‘Southern Nevada Teachers’ Workshop’ where they had the opportunity to train teachers on industry-related subjects such as mining and geology.
At the end of April, Round Mountain welcomed over 100 students to the mine to get a first-hand look at our operations and the Kinross culture. The students toured the truck shop and warehouse, and visited the pit overlook. They also had lunch with Kinross representatives where they were able to discuss different careers in mining and learn about their potential career progression.
“The month of April was an exciting time for Kinross Nevada! The outreach sessions were an excellent opportunity to visit our rural areas and help spark an interest in the mining industry for students,” said Samantha Faga, CSR Specialist, Round Mountain. “At Kinross, we believe youth are the future of our operations, and by hosting these outreach sessions we hope to inspire them to get excited about potentially having us be a part of their careers.”
