In late March, Kinross Tasiast welcomed a delegation of 17 Mauritanian journalists and media representatives to the mine for an overview of mining operations, and to have transparent conversations about results from the previous year and upcoming activities at Tasiast.
The delegation was hosted by Mr. Brahim M’Bareck, President of Tasiast, and was in attendance by senior leaders and members of the Tasiast Board of Directors. During the meeting, Mr. Brahim highlighted Tasiast’s accomplishments in 2022, including operational progress and partnership agreements with stakeholders and government officials. Attendees then listened to presentations from various departments at Tasiast to visualize the operation and its activities, listen to stories, and better understand the holistic approach successfully undertaken by the diverse disciplines at the mine, to see how they work together.
Once the presentations concluded, the delegation had the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session with the panel of high level and field Journalists invited. .
“The media visit was an excellent opportunity to bring the Tasiast mine to life for attendees, and to explain how the different parts of the mine operate for those who are not familiar with mining,” said Mr. Brahim M’Bareck. “At the same time, this was an opportunity for our leadership to build on relationships with local media, and to provide transparency on our operations and upcoming activities, while also highlighting our progress being made in ESG. We thank the attendees for taking their time to visit our mine site and look forward to future engagements.”
