Kinross makes $55m solar investment at Tasiast

Canadian gold miner Kinross has announced a $55-million investment in a photovoltaic solar power plant at its Tasiast mine, in Mauritania, as part of the group’s efforts to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The plant, with its power generation capacity of 34 MW and 18 MW battery system, would be integrated with the mine’s power generation suite, providing about 20% of the site’s power, Kinross said in a statement on Wednesday.
