Gold share rally may continue, analysts say


Berger & Montague, P.C. and Reginald H. Howe
Sue Kinross Gold Corp. And Related Persons
on Behalf of Unaffiliated Investors in Kinam Gold Inc.

PHILADELPHIA, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 26, 2002,
the law firm of Berger & Montague, P.C. and attorney Reginald
H. Howe, through the Nevada law firm of Kummer Kaempfer
Bonner & Renshaw, filed a class action suit against Kinross
Gold Corp. ("Kinross") (Amex: KGC - news), Kinross Gold
U.S.A. Inc. ("Kinross USA"), Kinam Gold Inc. ("Kinam")
(Amex: KGC.pb - news) and Robert M. Buchan, Chairman
& Chief Executive Officer of Kinross, in the United States
District Court for Nevada on behalf of all persons or entities
unrelated to Kinross who now hold Kinam Preferred Stock
or who tendered Kinam Preferred Stock to the issuer
tender offer (the "Tender Offer") by Kinross USA effected
February-March 2002.

A copy of the complaint filed in this action is available from
the Court, or can be viewed at (
or at (

The Complaint alleges that defendants, over an extended time
frame and in numerous separate steps, breached the terms
of the Kinam Preferred Stock, breached the fiduciary duties
owed by control persons and major shareholders to other
shareholders, violated the "best price rule" promulgated under
Section 13(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the
"Exchange Act"), violated anti-fraud provisions of rules
promulgated under Sections 10(b), 13(e) and 14(c) of the
Exchange Act, violated the anti-racketeering law set forth
in Section 207 of the Nevada Revised Statutes, committed
common law fraud, and violated New York Stock Exchange
Rule 311.03.

Since the 1998 merger pursuant to which Kinross acquired
control of Kinam, as alleged in the complaint, Kinross has
consistently and repeatedly acted to impair the value of
Kinam Preferred Stock in order to facilitate a subsequent
purchase at an unfair price, culminating in the coercive
and illegal Tender Offer of February-March 2002.
