Kinross Gold Corp. announced that the strike by unionized employees at its Tasiast mine that began on May 24 has ended. Striking employees began returning to work on June 11 and negotiations with the staff delegates on a new collective labor agreement and other outstanding items are expected to recommence within 10 days. Employees retain the right to strike during negotiations subject to Mauritanian labor laws.

The strike is not expected to impact the company’s annual regional guidance and did not affect development of the Tasiast Phase One expansion.
