WASHINGTON, DC — The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) has announced that the Maricunga gold mine belonging to Toronto’s Kinross Gold is compliant with the requirements of the code. The mine is located in central Chile.
Separately, the ICMI announced that Kinross’s Kupol gold mine in Russia has been granted an extension, to July 16, 2009, for certification of that operation. Severe winter weather restricted the auditor’s ability to examine the site.
