    Shane Lasley, Data Mine North|Updated Feb 24, 2022

    While copper has the potential to be a major contributor to Alaska's economic future, this "new oil" of the low-carbon economy will be hard-pressed to beat out the old money being produced at current and coming gold mines across the Last Frontier. This is due in large part to Kinross Gold Corp.'s new "Kinross Alaska" strategy that is leveraging the underutilized 14-million-metric-ton-per-year mill and storage capacity at Fort Knox to process higher-grade ore mined from... Full story
