Newmont Receives Shareholder Proposals from Barrick Subsidiary

Mining Corporation (NYSE: NEM) (Newmont or the Company) today
announced that it has received from a subsidiary of Barrick Gold
Corporation (Barrick) notice of intent to make two shareholder proposals
for consideration at Newmonta??s next annual meeting of stockholders. The
proposals, if made, would be to amend Newmonta??s by-laws to lower the
share ownership threshold necessary to requisition shareholder meetings
to 15 percent from the current 25 percent, and to repeal all by-law
amendments implemented since October 24, 2018 (there have been none).
The notice follows Barricka??s announcement on February 22, 2019, the same
date as the delivery of the notice of intent, that it has reviewed the
opportunity for an unsolicited, no premium merger with Newmont but has
not made any decision. Newmont does not intend to speculate about
Barricka??s motivations or intentions and reserves all rights with respect
to the shareholder proposals.

The pending combination of Newmont and Goldcorp
