Kinross Gold

Kinross is the 4th largest gold producer in the world based on 2017 figures (5th in 2016). The company produced 2.7 mn equivalent ounces of gold in 2017, and expects to produce ~2.5 mn equivalent ounces in 2018. Its most productive mine in 2017 remains the Kupol mine in Russia, which produced 580 koz of gold. For FY18, 60% of KCN's production is expected to come from the Americas, 20% from Russia, and 20% from West Africa. Given the strong presence in emerging markets, the company is exposed to less politically stable regions and emerging market risk. As of 12/31/17, KCN had 25.9 mn ounces of proven and probable gold reserves, based on a price assumption of $1,200/oz. The 5.1 mn ounces decrease from the end of 2016 was primarily due to the sale of Cerro Casale. (20 Nov 2018)
