Bald Mountain is a Carlin-type open-pit, run-of-mine (ROM), heap leach gold mine, owned and operated by Kinross Gold Corporation (“Kinross”). Bald Mountain is located in White Pine County, Nevada, approximately 110 kilometers southeast of Elko and 110 kilometers northwest of Ely, at the southeastern end of the Carlin Gold Trend.

The Bald Mountain operation is an open-pit mining operation with production from a number of different pits. The two main deposits are Saga and LBM, and there are several satellite deposits on the property. 

Bald Mountain recovers gold using multiple ROM heap leach pads. Gold is extracted from the ore with a cyanide solution and collected on activated carbon-in-column (CIC) plants. Loaded carbon is shipped offsite for further processing and ultimate gold refining.
