We Pursue a Higher Standard
Coeur Alaska, Inc.'s Kensington Mine is an underground, hard rock gold mine set in the Berners Bay Mining District, which has had over 100 years of resource development. The mine, which has a small footprint of approximately 240 acres, is accessed via the water with the 45 mile commute along Lynn Canal offering beautiful views including sightings of humpback whales, orcas, and other marine mammals. In 2019 Kensington reached the milestone of over one million ounces of gold produced and will be celebrating its tenth full year of production on July 3, 2020.
Coeur Alaska has approximately 386 employees at the mine. Kensington has been an important contributor to the region as the second largest private employer in the City and Borough of Juneau in terms of payroll, and the second largest property taxpayer. Coeur Alaska supports the Learn United Reading Tutor Program, UAS Mining Program, UAS Endowment Scholarship Fund, Juneau Gold Rush Days, American Cancer Society Relay For Life and many other programs and non-profits in Juneau. In addition, many employees are actively involved in local civic, charitable, and educational organizations.
Our purpose statement is, We Pursue a Higher Standard. Everything we do is fueled by this statement; it is our foundation and inspiration for our actions every day. At Coeur Alaska, we PROTECT our people, places and planet, DEVELOP quality resources, growth and plans, and DELIVER impactful results through teamwork.
Coeur Alaska has proposed an amendment to its Plan of Operations (POA 1) to increase tailings and waste rock storage capacity to reflect positive exploration results, improved metal prices, and ongoing operational efficiencies. POA 1 will be analyzed in a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement by the U.S. Forest Service. The public scoping period opened on September 23, 2019, and comments will be accepted through November 7, 2019.
