Kinross provides update on Tasiast mill fire - Kinross ...

The fire began at approximately 11:00 p.m. local time on June 15, 2021 at the trommel screen of the SAG mill. At the time the fire began the SAG mill was shut down and undergoing scheduled maintenance, including welding. Due to the quick actions of the Tasiast team, the fire was mainly limited to the discharge area of the SAG mill.
