Fort Knox gold production down

Kinross Gold Corp. Aug. 2 reported that its Fort Knox Mine near Fairbanks, Alaska, produced 91,848 ounces of gold during the second quarter, a nearly 6 percent decrease from the 97,221 oz recovered there during the same period last year.

The company attributes the 5,373-oz decrease to a colder spring that affected heap leach performance, which was partially offset by an increase in mill grades.
