La Coipa is located in the Atacama Region of northern Chile, approximately 1,000 kilometres north of Santiago and 140 kilometres northwest of the community of Copiapó. Kinross acquired ownership interest in La Coipa upon completion of the combination with TVX on January 31, 2003. On December 21, 2007, Kinross purchased the remaining 50% from Goldcorp Inc. and became the operator.

Mining of the existing orebody at La Coipa was suspended in the fourth quarter of 2013. A pre-feasibility study (PFS), begun in Q2 2014 to explore potential re-start options at La Coipa, remains on track to be completed during the third quarter of 2015. Metallurgical test work continues to be a major component of the study. Exploration continues at several district targets with the assessment of some attractive opportunities to extend the mine life beyond what the PFS will contemplate.
