Manh Choh project, Alaska

In September 2020, Kinross acquired 70% of the Manh Choh project (formerly the Peak project) in Alaska, located approximately 400 kilometres southeast Fort Knox

A feasibility study is currently underway, and is on schedule to be completed by the end of 2022. Subject to permitting, initial production is expected to commence in late 2024.

Kinross plans to process Manh Choh ore at Fort Knox utilizing the existing mill and infrastructure to benefit both the project and the mine.

For more information, see our Manh Choh page here.


In 2022, Kinross is budgeting approximately $7 million for exploration programs at Fort Knox and Manh Choh, with the goal of converting inferred resource estimates at Gil-Sourdough, which is located 13 kilometres from Fort Knox, to indicated resources, and exploring two key targets at Manh Choh, along with extensive regional reconnaissance for the greater Tetlin lease area.
