To celebrate the milestone, a commemorative gold pour at the mine was attended by employees celebrating 25-years working at Fort Knox, as well as state regulators from the Department of Alaska Fish and Game, Department of Natural Resources and Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation. Also in attendance were elected officials from the local area.
Jeremy Brans, Vice-President and General Manager, Kinross Alaska, concluded the event by speaking about the successful operation of the mine, and the company’s bright future in Alaska. Employees celebrating 25 years at Fort Knox were then gifted a commemorative anniversary belt buckle.
“Today we are celebrating an incredible milestone of 25 years of operation at Fort Knox. We are also celebrating the employees who have been a part of this mine since it opened its doors – some of whom were even present at the first gold pour,” said Jeremy. “We are proud of this accomplishment and the people who have made this possible. We look forward to continuing to build on our progress and generating a strong future in Alaska.”
