Kinross selected Wood to provide engineering, procurement and construction management services to Kinross Gold for the Phase Two expansion of Tasiast gold mine in Mauritania. The project is expected to increase mill capacity to 30,000 metric tons per day (mt/d) to produce an average of approximately 812,000 ounce per year (oz/y) of gold for the first five years, and is Kinross Gold’s second of a planned two-phase expansion.

Commercial production for Phase Two is expected in Q3 2020.
