The Kensington mine is an underground gold operation located on the east side of the Lynn Canal, approximately 45 miles north-northwest of Juneau, Alaska. The mine consists of the (i) Kensington Main deposit, (ii) Raven deposit, (iii) Jualin deposit, and (iv) other nearby deposits and exploration targets. The mine is accessible by either a combination of road vehicles and boat or by helicopter, floatplane or boat direct from Juneau.
Kensington is currently undertaking a planned expansion under Plan of Operations Amendment 1, which would increase tailings and waste rock storage capacity to support an expected longer mine life, reflecting positive exploration results, improved metal prices and ongoing operational efficiencies.
