History of the Kensington Project
In 2005, Coeur embarked on a drilling program to convert 300,000 to 400,000 ounces of gold currently reported as mineral resources to reserves, which would significantly increase the initial mine life from the current level of ten years.

Geology of the Kensington Project
The Kensington ore deposit consists of multiple precious metals bearing mesothermal, quartz, carbonate, pyrite vein swarms and discrete quartz-pyrite veins hosted in the Cretaceousaged Jualin diorite. The gold-telluride-mineral calaverite is associated with the pyrite mineralization.
