Mauritania rejects Kinross’ application for Tasiast project expansion

Source : Mining Technology, May 11, 2018

The Mauritanian Government has declined to grant a key permit to Kinross Gold for the second phase of expansion of the company’s Tasiast project.

Kinross’ Mauritanian subsidiary Société d’Extraction de Tamaya (SETSA) previously submitted an application for the conversion of the Tasiast Sud exploration permit into one for exploitation.

The Mauritanian Minister of Petroleum, Energy and Mines turned down the conversion application as a result of SETSA’s failure to meet feasibility criteria.
