Round Mountain has made a much-needed donation of $35,200 to support public health care access in the remote Nye County.
This money will go towards helping the public health nurse provide full-time services in the remote region where the mine is located. Due to public funding shortages, the office hours had been significantly cut and the community was facing the loss of many services like immunizations, medical treatments and wellness checks.
The critical donation makes it possible for the public health nurse to provide services to the community for the coming year.
“All of us involved in trying to build a stronger county and surrounding communities give our deepest thanks to Kinross Gold for its contribution to public health,” said local community member Shaun Grif, who is part of the advocacy group Community Chest in Nevada. The group is working to secure donations to keep local health services open and accessible to the community.
“We are happy to be contributing to such an important cause in our community. Our county doesn’t have other options for public health care and the prospect of it closing would have impacted many families in the area. The donation goes a long way to help keep the service up and running for this year,” said Ranay Guifarro, Corporate Responsibility, Round Mountain. “It’s a small part that we can play in the community and we are proud to do it.”
