    About Us

    Fort Knox is one of Kinross’ largest producing mines and a centre of excellence for the Company as one of the few cold weather heap leach facilities in the world. In 2015 it continued to hit new production records 19 years into its mine life.

    Fort Knox is an open-pit gold mine located near the City of Fairbanks, Alaska in one of the largest gold producing areas of the state. It is mined by conventional open-pit methods, with ore processed at a mill and heap leach facility.

    The mill has a daily capacity of up to 45,000 tonnes per day, with large volumes of lower grade ore and mineralized waste materials processed in the heap leach.

    Production from the heap leach began in late 2009, which increased mine life and helped lower costs. In 2016, the site poured its seven millionth ounce of gold.
