Continuation of arsenic studies in Paracatu
On July 9, 2015, the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Minas Gerais issued a statement regarding the continuity of studies on arsenic in Paracatu. For Kinross, the support for these studies is part of the company’s commitment as a responsible member of the community. The health and safety of the community, employees and their families is a priority for the company. The first stage of the studies was important to clarify to the inhabitants of Paracatu that the exposure to arsenic is low. Nevertheless, the company reaffirms its support for the continuation of studies for the population and to have their questions completely answered. Kinross adheres to the highest operational and environmental standards and performs constant monitoring of water and air, while maintaining strict controls concerning the health of its employees.
