Sept 21 (Reuters) - Canadian gold miner Kinross Gold said it saw a “very low” risk of political unrest in Mali spreading to Mauritania, its neighbour to the north where Kinross has a gold mine with plans to expand.
“We don’t see the Mali issue coming to Mauritania,” CEO Paul Rollinson told the Gold Forum Americas conference.
Mali’s president was toppled in a coup last month, further destabilising a country battling a jihadist insurgency and civil unrest. (Reporting by Helen Reid and Jeff Lewis, Editing by David Evans)
