(f) "nm" means not meaningful. KINROSS GOLD 2012 ANNUAL REPORT MDA3 Consolidated Financial Performance
Unless otherwise stated, “attributable” production and sales includes only Kinross’ share of Kupol (75% to April

Kettle River and a less favourable gold equivalent ratio during 2012 compared with 2011.
Metal sales from continuing operations for 2012 were $4,311.4 million, a 12% increase compared with 2011.
The increase in metal sales was primarily due to higher metal prices realized. The average realized gold price
from continuing operations during 2012 was $1,643 per ounce, an increase of 10% compared with 2011.
During 2012, the price of gold averaged $1,669 per ounce compared with $1,572 per ounce in 2011, an
