We are excited to welcome Bald Mountain to the Kinross Gold family, made official on January 11th when the acquisition deal closed.
As announced on November 12th, 2015, the deal includes acquiring the Bald Mountain gold mine in Nevada, with a large associated land package, and the remaining 50% of Round Mountain we did not own, from Barrick Gold.
“I am pleased to welcome all our new employees to Kinross,” said J. Paul Rollinson, President and CEO. “The acquisition expands our existing portfolio in Nevada, one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world, and provides clear upside potential.”
The Kinross integration team, led by Jeremy Brans, Vice-President, Operations Strategy, has been working with cross functional leads from Bald Mountain and Barrick over the last two months. “We’ve been fortunate to work with such a professional and hardworking team at Bald Mountain,” said Jeremy. “We’ve already learned a lot from them.”
A team of Kinross HR staff have also been on-site at Bald Mountain since the beginning of January to hold one-on-one information sessions with Bald Mountain employees.
“Thank you to everyone for the hard work throughout the transition process,” Paul said. “We are looking forward to working together and building on Bald Mountain’s successful legacy.”
