The most prominent permit area is Tasiast, with 2 a currently reported mining license area of 312 km and a total exploration 2 license area of 3,118 km . Tasiast In 2023, Tasiast produced 620,793 ounces of gold compared NSR: 2% N with 538,591 ounces in 2022. 0 10 Kinross has been implementing a phased expansion of Tasiast. kilometer The Phase One expansion was completed during the third quarter of 2018. Phase One increased mill throughput from 8,000 tpd to 12,000 tpd. Kinross subsequently undertook the Tasiast 24k project, increasing throughput to 21,000 tpd by year-end 2021 and 24,000 tpd by mid- 2023. Kinross reported record annual production at Tasiast in 2023 following the completion of the Tasiast 24k project. 2% NSR The Tasiast 24k is projected to extend the mine life to 2035 including Tasiast Main Trend the processing of low-grade stockpiles on the back end of the mine life. Kinross expects 2024 production from Tasiast to be approximately 610,000 ounces of gold with approximately 430,000 ounces per annum over the next several years. Kinross continues to study the underground Plant Site potential of the mine. Exploration drilling resumed in Q4 2023 targeting soil anomalies in the north satellite area on the TMLSA license. A follow-up drilling program is planned in 2024. Reverse circulation drilling of priority targets on the SENISA licenses also began in Q4 2023 and is expected to continue throughout 2024. Drilling around the existing operations for deep extensions at West Branch, Piment and Prolongation Tasiast Sud that could support underground mining will be a focus in 2024.
