Statement of support

Kinross endorses the principles and criteria of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). Our operations in Ghana and Mauritania report into those countries' reporting systems, which have been determined by EITI to be fully compliant with the EITI principles and criteria.

Engagement with the EITI

Since the creation of the national committee in Mauritania, Kinross Tasiast has always declared payments to the government through the independent expert in charge of the EITI annual report in Mauritania. In Ghana, through the subsidiary Chirano Gold Mines Ltd, the company has also provided its declaration of payments to government according to the EITI Standard.

In terms of international engagement, in 2017 Kinross sponsored an international workshop on 18th May at York University, Toronto, Canada called: “Evaluating EITI: Building on what we know to identify knowledge gaps”.

Strengthening transparency

In keeping with increasing regulatory and stakeholder expectations for greater tax transparency, Kinross reports annually under the Extractives Sector Transparency Measures Act (ESTMA) detailing its payments to governments on a country-by-country per payee basis. To learn more about Kinross'  reporting on payments to governments, read the company's most recent sustainability and ESTMA reports available here.
