CEO Commentary

J. Paul Rollinson, CEO, made the following comments in relation to 2014 first-quarter results:

"Kinross had another quarter of solid performance, with an increase in production year-over-year as our new Dvoinoye mine came fully on stream, and a decline in all-in sustaining cost as a result of capital and operating cost reduction efforts across the Company.

"While lower gold prices affected earnings, Kinross is making steady progress to reduce costs. Capital expenditures for the quarter were approximately half of what they were a year ago, while our all-in sustaining cost continued to decline. In addition, we've been able to reduce production cost of sales on a per ounce basis by 16% at Chirano, 14% at Maricunga, and 9% at Tasiast compared with Q4 2013. With these improvements, and strong performance from our other sites, Kinross is well on track to meet its guidance for the year. In short, we continue to deliver on our strategy, which is focused on capital discipline, operational excellence, quality over quantity and balance sheet strength.

"We released the Tasiast feasibility study on schedule during the quarter. With a significant reduction in forecast capital costs compared with earlier project estimates, and expected production cost of sales of approximately $500 per ounce for the first five years of production, the study shows that an expanded Tasiast has the potential to be among our lowest cost operations, a significant contributor of new production and cash flow, and a cornerstone of our future portfolio."

The following operating and financial results are based on first-quarter 2014 gold equivalent production from continuing operations. Production and cost measures are on an attributable basis:

Production: Kinross produced 664,690 attributable Au eq. oz. in the first quarter of 2014, an increase over the first quarter of 2013, mainly due to the processing of higher grade ore from Dvoinoye, which completed its first quarter at full production.

Production cost of sales: Production cost of sales per Au eq. oz.(2) was $727 for the first quarter of 2014, compared with $729 for the first quarter of 2013. Production cost of sales per Au oz. on a by-product basis(2) was $708 in Q1 2014, compared with $674 in Q1 2013, based on Q1 2014 attributable gold sales of 603,073 ounces and attributable silver sales of 1,165,667 ounces.

All-in sustaining cost: All-in sustaining cost per Au eq. oz. sold(2) decreased to $1,001 in Q1 2014, compared with $1,030 in Q1 2013, primarily due to decreases in sustaining capital and exploration and business development expenditures.

All-in sustaining cost per Au oz. sold on a by-product basis(2) was $991 in Q1 2014, compared with $994 in Q1 2013.

Revenue: Revenue from metal sales was $817.4 million in the first quarter of 2014, compared with $1,058.1 million during the same period in 2013. The decrease was mainly due to the lower average realized gold price for the quarter.

Average realized gold price: The average realized gold price was $1,299 per ounce in Q1 2014, compared with $1,624 per ounce in Q1 2013. During the first quarter of 2014, the average price of gold was $1,293 per ounce, with gold trading between $1,221 and $1,385 per ounce based on the London PM Fix gold price.

Margins: Kinross' attributable margin per Au eq. oz. sold(4) was $572 for the first quarter of 2014, compared with the Q1 2013 margin of $895 per Au eq. oz. sold.

Operating cash flow: Adjusted operating cash flow(2) was $239.0 million for the first quarter of 2014, or $0.21 per share, compared with $413.7 million, or $0.36 per share, for Q1 2013.

Earnings: Adjusted net earnings(2), (3) were $34.1 million, or $0.03 per share, for Q1 2014, compared with adjusted earnings of $172.4 million, or $0.15 per share, for Q1 2013, mainly due to a lower average realized gold price.

Reported net earnings(3) were $31.8 million, or $0.03 per share, for Q1 2014, compared with earnings of $162.4 million, or $0.14 per share, in Q1 2013.

Capital expenditures: Capital expenditures decreased to $168.9 million for Q1 2014, compared with $309.5 million for the same period last year, mainly due to lower spending at Tasiast.

Operating results

Mine-by-mine summaries for first-quarter 2014 operating results may be found on pages 13 and 17 of this news release. Highlights include the following:

Americas

Performance was strong in the first quarter, as the region remains on track to meet both production and production cost of sales forecasts for the year. At Round Mountain, improved mill performance increased overall production relative to the prior year and the previous quarter. At Kettle-River Buckhorn, production was lower compared with the previous quarter due to anticipated lower grades. Fort Knox production declined compared with Q1 2013 primarily due to lower grades. While overall cost performance was in line with the previous quarter, the Company expects higher production cost of sales at Fort Knox over the next three quarters, as the operation enters a phase of the mine that has more operating waste.

At Paracatu, production was in line with the previous quarter, despite lower recoveries and grades primarily resulting from variability in the ore processed through Plant 1. Results improved at Maricunga, with higher production and lower costs compared with the previous quarter due to higher grades, improved productivity in the mobile fleet and ADR and crushing plants, enhanced leach pad management, and a more efficient solutions management schedule. Production cost of sales declined 14% compared with Q4 2013, from $1,217 per ounce to $1,049 per ounce, due to reduced reagent costs, operating efficiencies previously mentioned and increased production. Maricunga's production cost of sales has seen a consistent improvement and is now below Q1 2013 levels.

Russia

First quarter production at the combined operation surpassed prior year and previous quarter results, due mainly to the impact of processing higher grade Dvoinoye ore in the expanded mill at Kupol. Approximately 83,000 Au eq. oz. were produced from processing Dvoinoye ore in Q1 2014, the first quarter of full production at the mine, compared with 24,000 Au eq. oz in Q4 2013. Gold grades at the combined operation increased by 31% compared with Q1 2013 due to the processing of higher grade ore from Dvoinoye, partially offset by the planned decline in grades at Kupol. Production cost of sales per ounce remained in line with previous quarters.

West Africa

Performance was strong during the first quarter, as the region is on target to meet both production and production cost of sales guidance for the year. Tasiast achieved record quarterly production in the first quarter, primarily due to higher grades and mill throughput. Production cost of sales per ounce decreased 9% compared with Q4 2013 due to continuous improvement programs, including a new truck shop, which increased maintenance efficiencies, and a new, lower cost power plant, which replaced multiple, high-cost generators. At Chirano, the move to self-perform was a main driver behind a 16% reduction in production cost of sales, from $733 per ounce in Q4 2013 to $616 per ounce in Q1 2014. Chirano's production cost of sales has decreased steadily over the last four quarters. Chirano is expected to reduce production in Q2 2014 due to repairs at the mill which are scheduled to be completed early in the third quarter.

Tasiast expansion project

On March 31, 2014, the Company announced the results of its feasibility study for its Tasiast expansion project. The study, based on an optimal mill size of 38,000 tonnes per day and a $1,350 per ounce gold price assumption, produced promising results that indicate the potential to significantly increase cash flow per share, enhance the Company's production profile, and lower costs.

While a final construction decision on the expansion project is not expected to be made until 2015 at the earliest, a number of activities are being pursued to further enhance the viability of the expansion plan. These include: exploring opportunities to further reduce capital and operating costs; measures to reduce execution variability in supply chain, logistics, contracting and labour in the construction phase of a potential expansion project; solidifying investment conditions in Mauritania; and continuing to explore additional mineral resource potential within the mine's footprint, and along the 80 kilometre Tasiast trend. The Company has also initiated project financing discussions with core lender groups.

Liquidity

On March 6, 2014, the Company completed a $500 million unsecured debt offering. The Senior Notes have a coupon of 5.95% and are due in 2024. On March 10, 2014 Kinross used the net proceeds raised from the debt offering to repay $500 million of its term loan, thereby reducing the Company's 2017 debt maturities by 50%. By extending $500 million of debt maturities to 2024, and reducing near-term debt repayment obligations, the Company has greater financial flexibility and is able to better align its balance sheet with the life cycle of assets. The Company has no material debt maturities prior to 2016.

Cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments were $704.0 million as at March 31, 2014, compared with $734.5 million as at December 31, 2013, mainly due to debt repayment and capital expenditures, offset by operating cash flows.

Outlook

The following section of the news release represents forward-looking information and users are cautioned that actual results may vary. We refer to the risks and assumptions contained in the Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Information on page six of this news release.

As previously announced on February 12, 2014, Kinross expects to produce approximately 2.5-2.7 million gold equivalent ounces for the year.

The Company expects to be within its regional production cost of sales guidance and meet its company-wide production cost of sales guidance range of $730-$780 per gold equivalent ounce and its all-in sustaining costs guidance range of $950-$1,050 per gold ounce sold in 2014. The Company also expects to meet its 2014 capital expenditure forecast of approximately $675 million.

Key Sensitivities

Approximately 60%-70% of the Company's costs are denominated in US dollars.

A 10% change in foreign exchange could result in an approximate $12 impact in production cost of sales per ounce(5).

A $10 per barrel change in the price of oil could result in an approximate $3 impact on production cost of sales per ounce.

The impact on royalties of a $100 change in the gold price could result in an approximate $3 impact on cost of sales per ounce.

Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures

The Company has included certain non-GAAP financial measures in this document. These measures are not defined under IFRS and should not be considered in isolation. The Company believes that these measures, together with measures determined in accordance with IFRS, provide investors with an improved ability to evaluate the underlying performance of the Company. The inclusion of these measures is meant to provide additional information and should not be used as a substitute for performance measures prepared in accordance with IFRS. These measures are not necessarily standard and therefore may not be comparable to other issuers.

Adjusted net earnings attributable to common shareholders and adjusted net earnings per share are non-GAAP measures which determine the performance of the Company, excluding certain impacts which the Company believes are not reflective of the Company's underlying performance for the reporting period, such as the impact of foreign exchange gains and losses, reassessment of prior year taxes and/or taxes otherwise not related to the current period, impairment charges, gains and losses and other one-time costs related to acquisitions, dispositions and other transactions, and non-hedge derivative gains and losses. Although some of the items are recurring, the Company believes that they are not reflective of the underlying operating performance of its current business and are not necessarily indicative of future operating results. Management believes that these measures, which are used internally to assess performance and in planning and forecasting future operating results, provide investors with the ability to better evaluate underlying performance, particularly since the excluded items are typically not included in public guidance. However, adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share measures are not necessarily indicative of net earnings and earnings per share measures as determined under IFRS.

The following table provides a reconciliation of net earnings from continuing operations to adjusted net earnings from continuing operations for the periods presented:

GAAP to Adjusted Earnings Reconciliation
(in millions, except share and per share amounts) Three months ended
March 31,
2014 2013
Net earnings from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders - as reported $ 31.8 $ 162.4
Adjusting items:
Foreign exchange losses 8.3 3.6
Non-hedge derivatives losses - net of tax 3.0 -
Gains on sale of other assets - net of tax (0.2 ) (0.6 )
Foreign exchange gains on translation of tax basis and foreign exchange on deferred income taxes within income tax expense (9.5 ) (2.6 )
Taxes in respect of prior years 0.7 4.0
Impairment of investments - 5.6
2.3 10.0
Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders $ 34.1 $ 172.4
Weighted average number of common shares outstanding - Basic 1,143.8 1,140.6
Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations per share $ 0.03 $ 0.15

The Company makes reference to a non-GAAP measure for adjusted operating cash flow and adjusted operating cash flow per share. Adjusted operating cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations excluding certain impacts which the Company believes are not reflective of the Company's regular operating cash flow, and excluding changes in working capital. Working capital can be volatile due to numerous factors, including the timing of tax payments, and in the case of Kupol, a build-up of inventory due to transportation logistics. The Company uses adjusted operating cash flow internally as a measure of the underlying operating cash flow performance and future operating cash flow-generating capability of the Company. However, adjusted operating cash flow and adjusted operating cash flow per share measures are not necessarily indicative of net cash flow from operations as determined under IFRS.

The following table provides a reconciliation of adjusted operating cash flow from continuing operations for the periods presented:

Consolidated production cost of sales per gold equivalent ounce sold is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as production cost of sales as per the consolidated financial statements divided by the total number of gold equivalent ounces sold. This measure converts the Company's non-gold production into gold equivalent ounces and credits it to total production.

Attributable production cost of sales per gold equivalent ounce sold is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as attributable production cost of sales divided by the attributable number of gold equivalent ounces sold. This measure converts the Company's non-gold production into gold equivalent ounces and credits it to total production.

Management uses these measures to monitor and evaluate the performance of its operating properties. The following table presents a reconciliation of consolidated and attributable production cost of sales per equivalent ounce sold for the periods presented:

Consolidated and Attributable Production Cost of Sales Per Equivalent Ounce Sold

Consolidated production cost of sales per equivalent ounce sold $ 725 $ 729
Attributable production cost of sales per equivalent ounce sold $ 727 $ 729

Attributable production cost of sales per ounce sold on a by-product basis is a non-GAAP measure which calculates the Company's non-gold production as a credit against its per ounce production costs, rather than converting its non-gold production into gold equivalent ounces and crediting it to total production, as is the case in co-product accounting. Management believes that this measure provides investors with the ability to better evaluate Kinross' production cost of sales per ounce on a comparable basis with other major gold producers who routinely calculate their cost of sales per ounce using by-product accounting rather than co-product accounting.

The following table provides a reconciliation of attributable production cost of sales per ounce sold on a by-product basis for the periods presented:

In June 2013, the World Gold Council ("WGC") published its guidelines for reporting all-in sustaining costs and all-in costs. The WGC is a market development organization for the gold industry and is an association whose membership comprises leading gold mining companies including Kinross. Although the WGC is not a mining industry regulatory organization, it worked closely with its member companies to develop these non-GAAP measures. Adoption of the all-in sustaining cost and all-in cost metrics is voluntary and not necessarily standard, and therefore, these measures presented by the Company may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The Company believes that the all-in sustaining cost and all-in cost measures complement existing measures reported by Kinross.

All-in sustaining cost includes both operating and capital costs required to sustain gold production on an ongoing basis. The value of silver sold is deducted from the total production cost of sales as it is considered residual production. Sustaining operating costs represent expenditures incurred at current operations that are considered necessary to maintain current production. Sustaining capital represents capital expenditures at existing operations comprising mine development costs and ongoing replacement of mine equipment and other capital facilities, and does not include capital expenditures for major growth projects or enhancement capital for significant infrastructure improvements at existing operations.

All-in cost is comprised of all-in sustaining cost as well as operating expenditures incurred at locations with no current operation, or costs related to other non-sustaining activities, and capital expenditures for major growth projects or enhancement capital for significant infrastructure improvements at existing operations.

Attributable all-in sustaining cost and all-in cost per ounce sold on a by-product basis are calculated by adjusting total production cost of sales, as reported on the interim condensed consolidated statement of operations, as follows:

The Company also assesses its all-in sustaining cost and all-in cost on a gold equivalent ounce basis. Under these non-GAAP measures, the Company's production of silver is converted into gold equivalent ounces and credited to total production.

Attributable all-in sustaining cost and all-in cost per equivalent ounce sold are calculated by adjusting total production cost of sales, as reported on the interim condensed consolidated statement of operations, as follows:

Attributable All-In Sustaining Cost and All-In Cost Per Equivalent Ounce Sold

(1) "Portion attributable to Chirano non-controlling interest" represents the non-controlling interest (10%) in the production cost of sales for the Chirano mine.
(2) "Attributable" includes Kinross' share of Chirano (90%) production.
(3) "Attributable silver revenues" represents the attributable portion of metal sales realized from the production of the secondary or by-product metal (i.e. silver). Revenue from the sale of silver, which is produced as a by-product of the process used to produce gold, effectively reduces the cost of gold production.
(4) "General and administrative" expenses is as reported on the interim condensed consolidated statement of operations, net of certain severance expenses. General and administrative expenses are considered sustaining costs as they are required to be absorbed on a continuing basis for the effective operation and governance of the Company.
(5) "Other operating expense - sustaining" is calculated as "Other operating expense" as reported on the interim condensed consolidated statement of operations, less other operating expenses related to non-sustaining activities. Other operating expenses are classified as either sustaining or non-sustaining based on the type and location of the expenditure incurred. The majority of other operating expenses that are incurred at existing operations are considered costs necessary to sustain operations, and are therefore classified as sustaining. Other operating expenses incurred at locations where there is no current operation or related to other non-sustaining activities are classified as non-sustaining.
(6) "Reclamation and remediation" is calculated as current period accretion related to reclamation and remediation obligations plus current period amortization of the corresponding reclamation and remediation assets, and is intended to reflect the periodic cost of reclamation and remediation for currently operating mines. Reclamation and remediation costs for development projects or closed mines are excluded from this amount and classified as non-sustaining.
(7) "Exploration and business development - sustaining" is calculated as "Exploration and business development" expenses as reported on the interim condensed consolidated statement of operations, less non-sustaining exploration expenses. Exploration expenses are classified as either sustaining or non-sustaining based on a determination of the type and location of the exploration expenditure. Exploration expenditures within the footprint of operating mines are considered costs required to sustain current operations and so are included in sustaining costs. Exploration expenditures focused on new ore bodies near existing mines (i.e. brownfield), new exploration projects (i.e. greenfield) or for other generative exploration activity not linked to existing mining operations are classified as non-sustaining. Business development expenses are considered sustaining costs as they are required for general operations.
(8) "Additions to property, plant and equipment - sustaining" represents the majority of capital expenditures at existing operations including capitalized exploration costs, capitalized stripping and underground mine development costs, ongoing replacement of mine equipment and other capital facilities and other capital expenditures and is calculated as total additions to property, plant and equipment (as reported on the interim condensed consolidated statements of cash flows), less capitalized interest and non-sustaining capital. Non-sustaining capital represents capital expenditures for major growth projects as well as enhancement capital for significant infrastructure improvements at existing operations. Non-sustaining capital expenditures for the first quarter of 2014 relate to projects at Tasiast, Chirano and Dvoinoye.
(9) "Portion attributable to Chirano non-controlling interest" represents the non-controlling interest (10%) in the ounces sold for the Chirano mine.
