Russia celebrates Kupol’s 10th anniversary and commissioning of Moroshka

In Q4 2018, Kinross Russia celebrated the 10-year anniversary of Kupol and the commissioning of the Moroshka project at the mine.

J. Paul Rollinson, President & CEO, Lauren Roberts, Chief Operating Officer, Claude Schimper, Regional Vice-President, Russia, and Gavin Ferguson, General Manager, Kupol, attended a commemorative event alongside employees and guests from Chukotka.  

The day began at Moroshka celebrating the commissioning of the mining operation where the local Ergyron indigenous group performed a traditional dance as a tribute to the culture surrounding the mine.

A skills competition then took place between maintenance, mining and mine rescue teams who displayed their teamwork through a series of competitions including changing tires, a jackleg-drilling exhibition, and a mock mine-rescue situation.

The day concluded with a production on ‘Kinross in Russia’ that showed Kinross’ rich history in the region; from the discovery of gold at site, to the building of Kupol, Dvoinoye and Moroshka and the future possibilities at the mine.

Lauren Roberts, Chief Operating Officer, Gavin Ferguson, Vice-President and General Manager, Kupol, Claude Schimper, Regional Vice-President, Russia and J. Paul Rollinson, President & CEO, at the event.
