Kinross Gold reports solid first quarter result, but highlights concentration risk

While the results are solid overall, they also point to the fact that an increasing proportion of earnings are being generated from Kinross’ Russian gold mines, which has been a key factor in the downgrade of Kinross’ credit rating to Ba1 from Moody’s. The Russian mines have performed extremely well in the recent quarter following the devaluation of the Russian ruble.
