Kinross Gold Corporation ("Kinross" or the "Company") (TSX: K, NYSE: KGC) is pleased to announce that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") has accepted the notice filed by the Company to renew its normal course issuer bid ("NCIB") program.

Under the NCIB program, the Company is authorized to purchase up to 65,002,277 of its common shares (out of the 1,300,045,558 common shares outstanding as at July 27, 2022) representing 5% of the Company's issued and outstanding common shares, during the period starting on August 3, 2022 and ending on August 2, 2023.

In deciding to continue its NCIB program, the Company believes that the market price of the common shares may not, from time to time, fully reflect their value, and accordingly, the purchase of the common shares would be in the best interest of the Company and an attractive and appropriate use of available funds. Kinross is committed to enhancing shareholder returns through programs such as a share buyback and its quarterly dividend, which are underpinned by the Company's investment grade balance sheet, strong free cash flow position and growing production profile from its global portfolio. This strong foundation places Kinross in an excellent position to continue generating substantial value for its shareholders.

Kinross may make any purchases through the facilities of the TSX, the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") and/or alternative Canadian trading systems, if eligible, or by such other means as may be permitted by the TSX and/or NYSE or under applicable law. Daily repurchases on the TSX will be limited to a maximum of 1,158,750 common shares, representing 25% of the average daily trading volume for the six months ended June 30, 2022 (being 4,635,002 common shares), except where purchases are made in accordance with the "block purchase exception" of the TSX rules. Subject to certain exceptions for block purchases, the maximum number of common shares which can be purchased per day on the NYSE will be 25% of the average daily trading volume for the four calendar weeks preceding the date of purchase. All shares purchased by the Company under the NCIB program will be cancelled. Pursuant to the terms of the previous normal course issuer bid approved by the TSX on July 28, 2021, the Company was authorized to repurchase up to 63,096,676 of its common shares and repurchased an aggregate of 17,608,678 common shares, which shares were cancelled.

Purchases will be made by the Company in accordance with the requirements of the TSX and/or the NYSE and the price which the Company will pay for any such common shares will be the market price of any such common shares at the time of acquisition, or such other price as may be permitted by the TSX and/or the NYSE.

In connection with the NCIB program, the Company has entered into an automatic repurchase plan with its designated broker to allow for purchases of its common shares during certain pre-determined black-out periods, subject to certain parameters as to price and number of common shares. Outside of these pre-determined black-out periods, common shares will be repurchased in accordance with management's discretion, subject to applicable law.

Although the Company has a present intention to acquire its common shares pursuant to the NCIB program, the Company will not be obligated to make any purchases and purchases may be suspended by the Company at any time.

5 Top Weekly TSX Performers: Wallbridge Mining Rises on Fenelon Assay Results

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was trading at 19,501.18 early last Friday (August 5) morning. It ultimately closed the week higher at 19.619.88.

Looking over to commodities prices, gold rose as recession fears pushed investors toward safe-haven assets. The yellow metal was hovering around the US$1,775 per ounce mark, while its sister metal silver was trading at US$19.80 per ounce on the week's last day of trading.

That said, all eyes were on platinum and palladium last week as analysts and traders lowered their price forecasts for the year on sluggish demand from the auto sector, a Reuters poll shows.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Bounces Back, Experts Talk Recession Question

Weekly August 5youtu.be

After dipping briefly below the US$1,700 per ounce mark in mid-July, gold is bouncing back.

The yellow metal has made a big move since last week's US Federal Reserve meeting, nearly making it to US$1,800. It was back down around US$1,775 at the time of this writing on Friday (August 5) afternoon.

The Fed hiked interest rates last week by 75 basis points, as was widely expected by market participants. Major indexes have been on the rise, which Lobo Tiggre of IndependentSpeculator.com told me is unsurprising.

VIDEO — Rick Rule: Glad to See Gold on Sale, "Solidly Bullish" on Uranium

Rick Rule Symposium 2022youtu.be

Gold has seen ups and downs this summer, but is solidly below its Q1 peak of over US$2,000 per ounce.

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the Rule Symposium in Florida, Rick Rule, the host of the event and proprietor at Rule Investment Media, said he sees the lack of interest in the yellow metal as positive.

"The fact that people are disinterested in gold, and disinterested in resources, I think is a wonderful thing because they're on sale," he explained, reminding listeners that he favors a contrarian approach to the markets.

Is Gold a Buy? Jim Cramer Says Timing Looks "Perfect"

As volatility reigns supreme across equity markets, many analysts are saying that gold’s fall below US$1,800 per ounce means it’s a good time to buy before the price goes up.

Gold's dip under that threshold began at the beginning of July, and is the first time the yellow metal has slipped below and held at that level since late 2021. The decline comes after gold breached US$2,000 in early March.

Many market participants remain resolute that it’s only a matter of time before gold regains its lost momentum, and that sentiment was echoed on Wednesday (August 3) by well-known TV personality Jim Cramer during the "Off the Charts" segment of his “Mad Money” investing show on CNBC.
