Growth projects:

  • Kinross continues to advance its capital and project optimization process, with Tasiast and Dvoinoye as key development priorities.
  • Mining activity at Tasiast has accelerated, and infrastructure development for an expanded operation is proceeding on schedule. Work towards identifying an optimum processing approach for the next phase of the expansion project remains on plan. Exploration activity has transitioned fully to step-out and district drilling.
  • The Dvoinoye feasibility study was completed on schedule and the Board has approved full construction funding. The mine is expected to produce approximately 1,000 tonnes of ore per day to be shipped to the Kupol mill, which will be upgraded to process approximately 4,500 tonnes per day. Gold equivalent production from Dvoinoye ore for the first three full years is expected to average approximately 215,000-250,000 ounces, providing total expected production from Kupol of approximately 650,000-700,000 ounces. The project is on schedule to deliver first ore to the Kupol mill in the second half of 2013.

CEO Commentary

Tye Burt, President and CEO, made the following comments in relation to first quarter 2012 results:

"Our operations continue to generate robust revenue, cash flow and earnings. While production was lower and costs were higher than Q4 2011, based on our annual plan, production for each of the remaining quarters of 2012 is expected to exceed Q1. We expect to be within our previously-stated full-year guidance for production and costs.

"Kinross remains in a strong operating and financial position. We are committed to maintaining our financial strength and liquidity as we advance our growth projects in the framework of our capital and project optimization process.

"At Tasiast, mining activity has accelerated, infrastructure construction and permitting remain on plan, and we are making progress towards selecting an optimum processing approach for a further expansion. Our exploration focus has shifted from infill drilling to step-out and district targets along the 75-kilometre land position. The Board has approved the Dvoinoye feasibility study and full construction funding, and the project is proceeding on schedule to begin shipping high-grade ore to increase Kupol production in the second half of 2013. We continue negotiations with the Ecuadorean government on an improved economic package to develop FDN, and are exploring opportunities to improve project economics at FDN as part of our optimization process."

(c) "Gold equivalent ounces" include silver ounces produced and sold converted to a gold equivalent based on a ratio of the average spot market prices for the commodities for each period. The ratios for the first quarter were: 2012 - 51.82:1, 2011 - 43.51:1.
 
(d) Certain prior period figures have been recast as a result of finalizing the Red Back purchase price allocation in the second quarter of 2011.

Kinross produced 604,247 attributable gold equivalent ounces in the first quarter of 2012, a 6% decrease over the first quarter of 2011, mainly due to a scheduled decline in grade at Kupol, a scheduled increase in processing lower-grade stockpile ore at La Coipa, and below plan production at Tasiast. Based on the full-year mining plan for 2012, Kinross expects an increase in production during the second half in the North America, South America and West Africa regions.

Production cost of sales per gold equivalent ounce(2) was $742 compared with $545 for the first quarter of 2011, mainly due to increased processing of lower grade ore, as well as higher power, labour and contractor costs. Production cost of sales per gold ounce on a by-product basis was $657 in the first quarter of 2012, compared with $472 in Q1 2011, based on Q1 2012 attributable gold sales of 570,486 ounces and attributable silver sales of 2,652,808 ounces.

Revenue from metal sales was $1,036.6 million in the first quarter of 2012, compared with $937.0 million during the same period in 2011, an increase of 11%, due to a higher average realized gold price. The average realized gold price was $1,644 per ounce in Q1 2012, compared with $1,327 per ounce for Q1 2011.

Kinross' margin per gold equivalent ounce sold(3) was $902 for the first quarter of 2012, an increase of 15% compared with Q1 2011, due primarily to a higher realized gold price.

Adjusted operating cash flow(4) was $339.7 million for the quarter, or $0.30 per share, compared with $396.7 million, or $0.35 per share, for Q1 2011. Cash and cash equivalents were $1,486.9 million as at March 31, 2012 compared with $1,766.0 million as at December 31, 2011.

Adjusted net earnings(4)(5) were $203.1 million, or $0.18 per share, for Q1 2012, compared with $175.3 million, or $0.15 per share, for Q1 2011.

Reported net earnings(5) were $105.7 million, or $0.09 per share, for Q1 2012, compared with reported net earnings of $250.1 million, or $0.22 per share, for Q1 2011. Reported net earnings were affected by a re-measurement of deferred tax liabilities, a $110.3 million non-cash item, as a result of an increase in the Ghanaian corporate income tax rate from 25% to 35%.

Capital expenditures were $534.0 million for Q1 2012, compared with $255.9 million for the same period last year, an increase due mainly to project-related expenditures at Tasiast, Paracatu and Dvoinoye.

Operating results

Mine-by-mine summaries for first quarter 2012 operating results may be found on pages 12 and 16 of this news release. Highlights include the following:

  • North America: Production for the region remains on target for the year, despite a slight decrease year-over- year and compared with the previous quarter. The decrease from Q4 2011 was a result of lower mill feed grades at Fort Knox and slightly lower gold release from the heap leach, reflecting winter conditions. Round Mountain and Kettle River performed at the same level as Q4 2011. Regional production is scheduled to be higher in the second half of the year, as a result of accelerated heap processing and improved mill processing grades at Fort Knox. Regional production costs were higher compared with the same period last year due to lower grades at Fort Knox and Kettle River. In addition, Fort Knox experienced higher energy costs.
  • Russia: Production at Kupol was lower year-over-year, mainly due to the reduced gold and silver head grades of the mine as operations moved out of the depleted high grade areas. The planned decrease in production in Q1 2012 compared with Q4 2011 was a result of slightly lower mill throughput. However, all performance metrics remain strong and Russia is expected to be within both regional production and cost guidance.
  • West Africa: Lower-than-expected production at Tasiast during the first quarter of the year was somewhat offset by strong results at Chirano, resulting in lower year-over-year regional production. The decrease at Tasiast was mainly due to a high proportion of near-surface fine material and felsite (a clay-like material) being placed on the dump leach, which affected the leaching metallurgy. The issue is being resolved and Tasiast production is expected to improve primarily in the second half. Regional production costs were higher than in Q4 2011, mainly due to the leach issues experienced at Tasiast in the first quarter. Full-year production and cost guidance for the region remain unchanged.
  • South America: First quarter results were lower year-over-year mainly due to lower grades, and a less favourable gold equivalent ratio for silver production at La Coipa. Production at Paracatu increased marginally year-over-year, because of higher mill throughput, but the mine experienced lower grades and recoveries resulting in higher unit costs. Production at Paracatu is expected to increase in the second half of the year as the mine sequence enters higher grade areas and the fourth ball mill is brought on line. La Coipa production is also expected to improve in the second half of the year, as the operation shifts from processing mostly stockpile material to processing ore from the Can Can and Ladera Farellon pits. Maricunga's production increased year-over-year, primarily as a result of improved metallurgical release from the heap leach. Regional production costs were higher compared with the same period last year, mainly as a result of declining grades, as well as less favourable currency hedges in Brazil. Full-year production and cost guidance for the region remain unchanged.

Project update and new developments

The forward-looking information contained in this section of the release is subject to the risks and assumptions contained in the Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Information on page seven of this news release.

The Company continues to advance work on its major growth projects within the framework of the capital and project optimization process described in the Q4 2011 news release.

Tasiast

The mine fleet at Tasiast has expanded to 41 haul trucks, and mining activity has accelerated. Mine production is forecast to increase to approximately 90 million tonnes in 2012, compared with 50 million tonnes in 2011. Stripping of the West Branch ore body is proceeding as planned in preparation for the next phase of the expansion project.

Work continues on building basic infrastructure for the next expansion phase. Expansion of the existing camp (3,000 beds) is now complete. Phase 1 of the permanent camp (702 beds) is nearing completion, and Phase 2 (2,800 beds) is underway. Construction of the new airstrip and upgrade to the main access road is proceeding on schedule, as is engineering work on the warehouse, truck shop, clinic and training facilities. Construction of the interim water pipeline is forecast for completion by mid-2012. Work also continues on the new tailings starter cell and West Branch dump leach pads. Discussions continue with the government and other industrial power users regarding the possible development of a natural gas power plant with the potential to provide power support to an expanded operation.

The Company continues to explore processing options for an expanded operation, and remains on schedule to make a preliminary selection of an optimum processing approach to be disclosed in August with the second quarter results.

The Phase 2 project EIA was submitted in early April. The Phase 2 EIA includes all proposed mining and processing activities that will occur within the mine site boundary. The EIA covers a range of potential project components and processing options that are being considered in the optimization process. The Company expects approval of the Phase 2 EIA in the second half of 2012, supporting the project development timeline. Phase 3 permitting for the project includes a sea water supply system. Development of the Phase 3 EIA is progressing and is expected to support the development timeline.

Exploration drilling transitioned fully to step-out and district drilling in the first quarter. Eight core and nine reverse circulation (RC) rigs were in operation throughout the quarter, drilling a total of 777 holes for 93,105 metres. Near the mine, approximately 30,000 metres were drilled, focusing on targets south of West Branch in the footwall of the Piment lodes, and testing for extensions of ore shoots below the Prolongation pit. Outside of the eight- kilometre mine corridor, 40 core holes and 645 reverse circulation holes were completed at various district targets for a total of approximately 60,000 metres. The majority of this work was directed at the C67 and C69 targets. Assay sample processing continues to be a bottleneck due to the rate of drilling and has resulted in a sample backlog, which is being dealt with on a priority basis.

Dvoinoye

The Dvoinoye feasibility study was completed during the first quarter as planned, and the Board has approved full construction funding. The study confirms the financial viability of the mine, which is expected to produce at a targeted rate of approximately 1,000 tonnes of ore per day. The ore will be shipped by truck to the Kupol mill facility, which will be upgraded to process approximately 4,500 tonnes per day, or 500 tonnes per day more than previously envisaged in the scoping study. Total life of mine gold production is expected to be approximately 1.1 million ounces, and total life of mine silver production is expected to be approximately 1.14 million ounces. The Dvoinoye reserve will be mined entirely using underground mechanised mining equipment, similar to that in operation at Kupol, with approximately 2.1 million tonnes of ore expected to be mined over the mine life.

Annual gold equivalent production from Dvoinoye ore is expected to average 215,000-250,000 ounces for the first three full years of production, during which time total annual production from the Kupol mine is expected to average 435,000-470,000 gold equivalent ounces, providing the region with average aggregate expected production of approximately 650,000-700,000 gold equivalent ounces per year from 2014 to 2016. The average Dvoinoye gold grade is expected to be approximately 17 g/t and the silver grade is expected to be approximately 21 g/t, with average gold and silver recoveries of 94% and 80%, respectively, over the life of mine. The project is expected to have a mine life of seven years, and remains on schedule to deliver first ore to the upgraded Kupol mill in the second half of 2013.

Capital expenditures for the project are estimated to be approximately $370 million, including approximately $175 million for infrastructure construction and upgrades to the Kupol mill. Capital expenditures and commitments as of the end of the first quarter are $206 million, or 56% of total forecast expenditures.

The Dvoinoye feasibility study envisions mining costs of approximately $80 per tonne, processing costs of approximately $50 per tonne, and trucking costs of approximately $35 per tonne. Total life of mine production cost of sales per gold equivalent ounce is expected to be approximately $575-$600, based on an oil price of $90 per barrel, gold royalties of 6%, silver royalties of 6.5%, and a corporate income tax rate of 20%. Going forward, Dvoinoye and Kupol results will be reported as a combined operation.

As of the end of the first quarter, surface infrastructure construction was approximately 16% complete, and underground development was approximately 23% complete. Underground development was ahead of plan in the quarter, with approximately 1,000 metres completed. Total underground development is now approximately 2,730 metres since development began in 2011. Surface construction activities have commenced as the winter season comes to an end and will peak this summer season. The permanent camp, key equipment and supplies for the 2012 construction program have all been delivered to site. Earthworks and roads for site facilities, including the permanent camp, are largely complete. Expansion of the temporary camp is near completion and will satisfy accommodation requirements during the construction period. Construction of the all-season road between Dvoinoye and Kupol has progressed well, with 32 kilometres of the total 84 kilometres now completed. All necessary permits for the current scope of underground development and construction activities are in place.

Fruta del Norte

Negotiations with the Ecuadorean government on an enhanced economic package at FDN are continuing, with the objective of reaching balanced agreements on exploitation and investment protection for the project.

Lobo-Marte

Drilling commenced at Lobo-Marte in January with four holes for 1,780 metres completed by quarter-end. Drilling was focused primarily on the Valy prospect, following up on positive drill results returned from Q2 2011 drill programs.

Other projects

Construction of the Paracatu fourth ball mill continues to advance on schedule and the project remains on target to be operational in the third quarter of 2012.

Pre-commissioning of the Maricunga SART (Sulphidization, Acidification, Recycling and Thickening) plant has commenced, and the project remains on target for completion in the first half of 2012.

The Company continues to review opportunities to optimize its assets in the Maricunga district, including potential development of the Pompeya gold and silver discovery at La Coipa. At Pompeya, 51 holes were drilled during the first quarter for a total of 18,500 metres. All work was completed on the Compañia Minera La Coipa Joint Venture property (75% Kinross-owned), where drilling continued to delineate the zone of oxide mineralization at Pompeya.

Outlook

The forward-looking information contained in this section is subject to the risk factors and assumptions contained in the Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Information located on page seven of this news release.

As previously announced on January 16, 2012, Kinross expects to produce approximately 2.6-2.8 million gold equivalent ounces in 2012. Production cost of sales per gold equivalent ounce is expected to be in the range of $670-715 for 2012.

Key Sensitivities

Approximately 60%-70% of the Company's costs are denominated in US dollars.

A 10% change in foreign exchange could result in an approximate $5 impact in production cost of sales per ounce.(6)

A $10 per barrel change in the price of oil could result in an approximate $2 impact on production cost of sales per ounce.

The impact on royalties of a $100 change in the gold price could result in an approximate $4 impact on cost of sales per ounce.

Where we say "we", "us", "our", the "Company", or "Kinross" in this news release, we mean Kinross Gold Corporation and/or one or more or all of its subsidiaries, as may be applicable.

The technical information about the Company's material mineral properties (other than exploration activities) contained in this news release has been prepared under the supervision of Mr. Mark Sedore, an officer of the Company who is a "qualified person" within the meaning of National Instrument 43- 101.The technical information about the Company's drilling and exploration activities contained in this news release has been prepared under the supervision of Dr. Glen Masterman, an officer with the Company who is a "qualified person" within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101.

(1) Unless otherwise stated, production figures in this news release are based on Kinross' 90% share of Chirano production.

(2) "Production cost of sales per gold equivalent ounce" is a non-GAAP measure defined as production cost of sales per the financial statements divided by the attributable number of gold equivalent ounces sold, both reduced to reflect a 90% ownership interest in Chirano sales. Production cost of sales is equivalent to total cost of sales (per the financial statements), less depreciation, depletion, amortization, and impairment charges.

(3) "Attributable margin per ounce sold" is a non-GAAP measure and defined as "average realized gold price per ounce" less "attributable production cost of sales per gold equivalent ounce sold".

(4) Reconciliation of non-GAAP measures is located on page nine of this news release.

(5) "Net earnings" figures in this release represent " net earnings attributed to common shareholders."

(6) Refers to all of the currencies in the countries where the Company has mining operations, fluctuating simultaneously by 10% in the same direction, either appreciating or depreciating, taking into consideration the impact of hedging and the weighting of each currency within our consolidated cost structure.

Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures

The Company has included certain non-GAAP financial measures in this document. These measures are not defined under IFRS and should not be considered in isolation. The Company believes that these measures, together with measures determined in accordance with IFRS, provide investors with an improved ability to evaluate the underlying performance of the Company. The inclusion of these measures is meant to provide additional information and should not be used as a substitute for performance measures prepared in accordance with IFRS. These measures are not necessarily standard and therefore may not be comparable to other issuers.

Adjusted net earnings attributed to common shareholders and adjusted net earnings per share are non-GAAP measures which determine the performance of the Company, excluding certain impacts which the Company believes are not reflective of the Company's underlying performance for the reporting period, such as the impact of foreign exchange gains and losses, reassessment of prior year taxes and/or taxes otherwise not related to the current period, impairment charges, gains and losses and other one-time costs related to acquisitions, dispositions and other transactions, and non-hedge derivative gains and losses. Although some of the items are recurring, the Company believes that they are not reflective of the underlying operating performance of its current business and are not necessarily indicative of future operating results. Management believes that these measures, which are used internally to assess performance and in planning and forecasting future operating results, provide investors with the ability to better evaluate underlying performance, particularly since the excluded items are typically not included in public guidance. However, adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share measures are not necessarily indicative of net earnings and earnings per share measures as determined under IFRS.

The Company makes reference to a non-GAAP measure for adjusted operating cash flow and adjusted operating cash flow per share. Adjusted operating cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations excluding certain impacts which the Company believes are not reflective of the Company's regular operating cash flow, and excluding changes in working capital. Working capital can be volatile due to numerous factors, including the timing of tax payments, and in the case of Kupol, a build-up of inventory due to transportation logistics. The Company uses adjusted operating cash flow internally as a measure of the underlying operating cash flow performance and future operating cash flow-generating capability of the Company. However, adjusted operating cash flow and adjusted operating cash flow per share measures are not necessarily indicative of net cash flow from operations as determined under IFRS.

Consolidated production cost of sales per gold equivalent ounce sold is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as production cost of sales as per the consolidated financial statements divided by the total number of gold equivalent ounces sold. This measure converts the Company's non-gold production into gold equivalent ounces and credits it to total production.

Attributable production cost of sales per gold equivalent ounce sold is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as attributable production cost of sales divided by the attributable number of gold equivalent ounces sold. This measure converts the Company's non-gold production into gold equivalent ounces and credits it to total production.

Management uses these measures to monitor and evaluate the performance of its operating properties.

(2) Certain prior period figures have been recast as a result of finalizing the Red Back purchase price allocation in the second quarter of 2011.

Attributable production cost of sales per ounce sold on a by-product basis is a non-GAAP measure which calculates the Company's non-gold production as a credit against its per ounce production costs, rather than converting its non-gold production into gold equivalent ounces and crediting it to total production, as is the case in co-product accounting. Management believes that this measure provides investors with the ability to better evaluate Kinross' production cost of sales per ounce on a comparable basis with other major gold producers who routinely calculate their cost of sales per ounce using by-product accounting rather than co-product accounting.

The following table provides a reconciliation of attributable production cost of sales per ounce sold on a by-product basis for the periods presented:
