Newmont Goldcorp

Newmont Goldcorp Corporation, based in Greenwood Village, Colorado, USA, is an American mining company that traces its roots to the diversified holding company William Boyce Thompson established in 1916.[3] Incorporated in 1921, it has active gold mines in Nevada, Australia, Ghana, Peru, and Suriname. Holdings include Santa Fe Gold, Battle Mountain Gold, Normandy Mining, Franco-Nevada Corp and Fronteer Gold. Newmont also has many joint venture relationships. Newmont is the world's second-largest producer of gold. On January 14, 2019, Newmont successfully arranged a merger acquisition of Goldcorp, the world’s fourth-largest producer of gold, with the merged “Newmont Goldcorp” to be the world’s largest producer once the transaction is complete.[4] In addition to gold, Newmont mines copper and silver.[5]

Early years

The Newmont Company was founded in 1916 in New York by Colonel William Boyce Thompson as a holding company to invest in Worldwide mineral, oil, and related companies. According to company lore, the name "Newmont" is a portmanteau "New York" and "Montana", reflecting where Thompson made his fortune and where he grew up. Newmont made its first major gold investment in 1917, with a founding 25 percent in the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa. Four years later, in 1921, the Newmont Company reincorporated as the Newmont Corporation.[6]

In 1929, Newmont became a mining company with its first gold product in by acquiring California's Empire Star Mine. By 1939, Newmont was operating 12 gold mines in North America.

The company acquired interests overseas. For decades around the middle of the 20th century, Newmont had a controlling interest in the Tsumeb mine in Namibia and in the O'Okiep Copper Company in Namaqualand, South Africa.

Beginning in 1925, Newmont acquired interests in a Texas oil field. Eventually, Newmont's oil interests included more than 70 blocks in the Louisiana, Gulf of Mexico area and oil and gas production in the North Sea.

Fred Searls became president in 1947, after serving as the company's exploration geologist. Searls retired in 1954, and Plato Malozemoff took over as president.[7]

Newmont discovered the world's first submicroscopic or "invisible" gold at Carlin, Nevada in the early 1960s and began production on the first open pit gold mine in the world. The "Carlin Trend" or "Carlin Unconformity" is the largest gold discovery in North America during the 20th century. In 1971 Newmont began using the heap leaching technology on sub-mill grade ores there.

In the 1980s, Newmont thwarted five takeover bids – from Consolidated Gold Fields (ConsGold), T. Boone Pickens, Minorco, Hanson Industries and Sir James Goldsmith – who sought to break Newmont apart and sell its assets to increase shareholder value.

Major growth

After 1987, the company undertook major restructuring. This included the payment of a US$33 per share dividend to all shareholders for a total of US$2.2 billion, of which US$1.75 billion was borrowed. To reduce this debt the company undertook a divestment program involving all of its copper, oil, gas, and coal interests.

As a further step in the restructuring, the company moved its headquarters from New York City to Denver in 1988. A decade later, Newmont Mining Corporation and Newmont Gold Company combined assets to form a unified worldwide gold company. Shareholders of both companies had identical interests in the reserves, production and earnings of Newmont Gold's operations.

Newmont then merged with Santa Fe Pacific Gold Corporation (a former Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway subsidiary, sold in preparation for the merger that produced the BNSF Railway[8]) to form North America's largest gold producer.

On June 21, 2000, Newmont announced a merger with Battle Mountain Gold Company. The merger was completed in January 2001.

In February 2002, Newmont completed the acquisition of Normandy Mining Limited and Franco-Nevada Mining Corporation Limited. Newmont faced competition in its bid for Normandy from AngloGold. By eventually outbidding the South African company, Newmont became the world's largest gold producer, with an annual production in excess of 8 million ounces.[9]

In 2007, the company eliminated its 1.5 million ounce legacy hedge book to make Newmont the world's largest unhedged gold producer. The following year, Newmont acquired Miramar Mining Corporation and its Hope Bay deposit in the Canadian Arctic.

In late 2008, Newmont moved its headquarters from Denver to the suburb of Greenwood Village, Colorado.[10]

In 2009, Newmont purchased the remaining one-third interest in Boddington Gold Mine from AngloGold Ashanti, bringing its ownership to 100 percent.

In April 2011, the company acquired Canada's Fronteer Gold Inc. for Cdn $2.3 billion. This made the company the world's second-largest gold producer.[11]

In 2017, Newmont produced 5.65 million ounces of gold at all-in sustaining costs of US$924 per ounce.[12] The company reported adjusted net income of $780 million for the year,[13] and further reduced net debt down to US$0.8 billion.[14]

in 2019, it acquired Canada's Goldcorp for $10 billion, and will be renamed Newmont Goldcorp [15].

Operations and major projects


As of 2017, Newmont's four mine sites in Nevada include integrated operations at Carlin, located west of the city of Elko on the geologic feature known as the Carlin Trend; the Phoenix gold-copper mine, located 10 miles (16 km) south of Battle Mountain; the Twin Creeks mine, located approximately 15 miles (24 km) north of Golconda; and Long Canyon, located 75 miles (121 km) east of Elko.[16] It also participates in the Turquoise Ridge joint venture with a subsidiary of Barrick Gold Corporation, which utilizes mill capacity at Twin Creeks.

With the acquisition of Fronteer Gold, over sixty additional projects were added to the Newmont portfolio. The flagship property, Long Canyon, is located on a gold trend that is similar to the Carlin Trend in terms of its characteristics and potential.


In August 2015, Newmont purchased the Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mine from AngloGold Ashanti. The mine is the largest gold and silver producer in the state of Colorado.[17]

Yanacocha, Peru

The properties of Minera Yanacocha S.R.L. (“Yanacocha”) are located approximately 375 miles (604 kilometers) north of Lima and 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of Cajamarca, in Peru. Yanacocha began production in 1993. Newmont holds a 51.35% interest in Yanacocha with the remaining interest held by Compañia de Minas Buenaventura, S.A. (43.65%) and the International Finance Corporation (5%).

Yanacocha's mining rights consist of concessions granted by the Peruvian government to Yanacocha and a related entity. Yanacocha currently has three active open pit mines: Cerro Yanacocha, La Quinua and Chaquicocha. In addition, reclamation and/or backfilling activities at Carachugo, San Jose and Maqui Maqui are currently underway.

Yanacocha's gold production for 2010 was 1.5 million ounces (750,000 attributable ounces). As of December 31, 2010, Newmont reported 5.0 million ounces of gold reserves.

In 2011, Newmont's board of directors granted approval to develop the Conga Project, located in the provinces of Celendín, and Sorochuco Huasmín districts and Cajamarca district of Encañada. Newmont's ownership interest is identical to Yanacocha. If all permits are secured, the commencement of production is expected in late 2014 or early 2015.[18]

In 2015, agents acting on behalf of Newmont Mining Corporation attacked and beat a woman who refused to move from her home to allow for the development of a mine.

Indigenous Peruvian farmworker Maxima Acuña de Chaupe withstood violent eviction attempts, beatings, and a legal battle to protect her land from being turned into an open-pit gold mine[19]

Newmont acquired its Australian assets with the acquisition of Normandy Mining in 2002.[23][24]

Boddington. Newmont's newest Australian asset is Boddington, which is now Australia's largest gold producer. It has been wholly owned since June 2009, when Newmont acquired the final 33.33% interest from AngloGold Ashanti Australia Limited (“AngloGold”). Boddington poured its first gold in September 2009 and commenced commercial production in November 2009. Boddington produced 728,000 ounces of gold and 58 million pounds of copper in 2010. As of year-end 2010, it reported 20.3 million ounces of gold reserves and 2,360 million pounds of copper reserves.

Tanami. The Tanami operations (100% owned) include The Granites treatment plant and associated mining operations, which are located in the Northern Territory approximately 342 miles (550 kilometers) northwest of Alice Springs, adjacent to the Tanami highway, and the Dead bullock Soak mining operations, approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) west of The Granites.

The Tanami operations have been wholly owned since April 2003, when Newmont acquired the minority interests. Operations today are predominantly focused on the Callie underground mine at Dead Bullock Soak and ore is processed through the Granites treatment plant. During 2010, the Tanami operations produced 250,000 ounces of gold. As of December 31, 2010, it had a reported 2.0 million ounces of gold reserves.

Kalgoorlie. The Kalgoorlie operations comprise the Fimiston open pit (commonly referred to as the Super Pit) and Mt. Charlotte underground mine at Kalgoorlie-Boulder, 373 miles (600 kilometers) east of Perth. The mines are managed by Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines Pty Ltd for the joint venture owners, Newmont and Barrick, each of which holds a 50% interest.

In 2010, the Kalgoorlie operations produced 754,000 ounces of gold (377,000 attributable ounces). It reported 3.8 million ounces of gold reserves on December 31, 2010.

Batu Hijau, Sumbawa, Indonesia

Newmont operated the Batu Hijau mine on the island of Sumbawa in the Indonesia in the province of West Nusa Tenggara through its subsidiary company P.T. Newmont Nusa Tenggara which was a joint venture between Newmont, Sumitomo Corporation and P.T. Pukuafu Indah.

Batu Hijau is a large porphyry copper/gold deposit, which Newmont discovered in 1990. Development and construction activities began in 1997 and start-up occurred in late 1999. In 2010, Batu Hijau produced 542 million pounds of copper (269 million attributable pounds) and 737,000 ounces of gold (364,000 attributable ounces). On December 31, 2010, it reported 3,760 million pounds of copper reserves and 3.7 million ounces of gold reserves.

In 2008, the Indonesian government threatened to terminate the contract of P.T. Newmont Nusa Tenggara after accusing it of failing to meet its divestment obligations. On April 1, 2009, international arbitrators and its partner sided with Newmont rejecting Jakarta's request to have their contract revoked, which would have forced the company to walk away from the property without any compensation. Instead Newmont was forced to sell a 17% stake in an Indonesian subsidiary within 180 days.[25]

In 2011, subsidiaries of Newmont and Sumitomo Corporation divested a 7 percent investment in PTNNT. Pusat Investasi Pemerintah (PIP), designated as the buyer by the Indonesian Government, signed a sale and purchase agreement for the shares worth $246.8 million. Nusa Tenggara Partnership B.V., which held Newmont's shares in PTNNT – together with shares held by a subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation of Japan – owned 49 percent of PTNNT. Of that amount, Newmont directly owned 27.56 percent of PTNNT and had another 17 percent economic interest through financing arrangements with existing shareholders.[26]


The Ahafo operation (100% owned) is located in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana, approximately 180 miles (290 kilometers) northwest of Accra. Ahafo poured its first gold on July 18, 2006 and commenced commercial production in August 2006. Newmont operates four open pits at Ahafo with reserves contained in 11 pits. Commercial production in the fourth pit, Amoma, began in October 2010.

Ahafo produced 545,000 ounces of gold in 2010 and at December 31, 2010, reported 10.0 million ounces of gold reserves.

Additionally, Newmont's Akyem Mine (100% owned) is located approximately 80 miles (125 kilometers) northwest of Accra. In January 2010, Newmont received the mining lease. After close to two years of construction, the Akyem mine commenced commercial production in late 2013.

At December 31, 2010, Newmont reported 7.2 million ounces of gold reserves.

Other operations


Newmont has a 44% interest in La Herradura, which is located in Mexico's Sonora desert. La Herradura is operated by Fresnillo PLC (which owns the remaining 56% interest) and comprises an open pit operation with run-of-mine heap leach processing. La Herradura produced 174,000 attributable ounces of gold in 2010. As of December 31, 2010, it had 2.3 million ounces of gold reserves.

Former operations

Newmont has purchased and sold a number of operations in recent years:

  • Golden Grove Mine: Owned by Normandy Mining Limited since 1991, Golden Grove was acquired by Newmont Australia Ltd in February 2002 when Newmont took over Normandy.[27] Newmont sold on the mine to Oxiana Limited in June 2005 for A$265 million.[28]
  • Pajingo: Pajingo (100% owned) is an underground mine located approximately 93 miles (150 kilometers) southwest of Townsville, Queensland and 45 miles (72 kilometers) south of the local township of Charters Towers. Newmont sold the mine in late 2007; it is now owned by Conquest Mining.
  • Bronzewing Gold Mine: View Resources purchased the mine in July 2004 from Newmont for A$9.0 million, a package that also included the McClure mining operation, 8 km west of Bronzewing.[29]
  • Wiluna Gold Mine: Also part of the Normandy acquisition, Gowit Limited, later Agincourt Resources, purchased the mine on 10 December 2003 from Newmont for shares and $3.65 million in cash.[30][31]
  • Zarafshan: Newmont was part of a joint venture gold project in Uzbekistan, the first major Western investment in the region since the breakup of the Soviet Union. A difficult place to operate, Uzbekistan expropriates the company's assets in 2006.
  • Kori Kollo: The Kori Kollo open pit mine is on a high plain in northwestern Bolivia near Oruro, on government mining concessions issued to a Bolivian corporation, Empresa Minera Inti Raymi S.A. (“Inti Raymi”), in which Newmont had an 88% interest. The remaining 12% was owned by Mrs. Beatriz Rocabado. Inti Raymi owned and operated the mine. On July 23, 2009, Newmont announced the transfer of its interest in Empresa Minera Inti Raymi S.A., which owned the Kori Kollo gold mine and Kori Chaca gold mine, to Compania Procesadora de Minerales S.A. ("CPM"), a company controlled by Newmont's long-time Bolivian partner Jose Mercado.
  • Minahasa: Newmont owns 80% of Minahasa and the remaining 20% interest is a carried interest held by P.T. Tanjung Serapung, an unrelated Indonesian company. Minahasa is located on the island of Sulawesi, approximately 1,500 miles (2,414 kilometers) northeast of Jakarta. Mining was completed in late 2001 and gold production was completed in 2004.
  • Golden Giant: Newmont's Canadian operations previously included two underground mines. Golden Giant (100% owned) was located approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of Marathon, Ontario, Canada, and had been in production since 1985. Mining operations at Golden Giant were completed in December 2005 with remnant mining and milling production continuing throughout most of 2006.
  • Holloway: Holloway was located approximately 35 miles (56 kilometers) east of Matheson, Ontario, and about 400 miles (644 kilometers) northeast of Golden Giant. It was in production since 1996. On November 6, 2006, Newmont completed the sale of the Holloway mine to St. Andrews Goldfields Ltd. resulting in a $13 pre-tax gain.
  • Empire-Star: Located in Grass Valley, California, the mine has been closed since 1957
  • New Zealand and Indonesia: Newmont completed sale of its Waihi assets in October 2015.[32] Newmont completed its sale of the Batu Hijau mine to PT Amman Mineral Internasional in 2016.[33]


Nevada operations

In July 2009, the Mine Safety and Health Administration announced that four supervisors for the Denver-based mining company have agreed to pay a combined $60,000 in individual penalties for their role in the accident at the Midas Mine north of Elko in June 2007. The agency said managers "showed a disregard for the miners' welfare" and acted with "more than ordinary negligence" before the victim fell through a sinkhole while operating a large loader about 200 feet below the entrance of the mine." [34]

State tax deductions

In March 2011, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval replaced his director of taxation, citing problems in auditing tax deductions.[35] Statements by both Nevada Mining Association President Tim Crowley[36] and Republican Assembly Minority Floor Leader Pete Goicoechea of Eureka County in Nevada (the county where a majority of Newmont's Nevada operations are located)[37] made it more plausible that the deductions approved by state regulators may have been improper.[38] This prompted the state legislature to call for "emergency regulations" to disallow some tax deductions.[39]

In April 2011, it was revealed that the mining industry had taken questionable state tax deductions, which had been approved by the Nevada Tax Commission.[38] The outgoing state director of taxation said that his department had no one trained to audit mining companies for the past two years.[40] This is shown also in the close ties between regulators and industry employees, such as Robert J Miller, who served a director of Newmont Mining Corporation right after being Governor of Nevada for a decade.[41] Miller was succeeded by the late Kenny Guinn, who proposed a tax restructuring during the 2003 legislative session that was met with opposition from anti-tax business groups and many anti-tax Republicans.

FIN 48 an interpretation of FASB 109 requires companies to analyze the technical merits of their tax positions and determine the likelihood that these positions will be sustained if they were ever examined by the taxing authorities (or litigation).[42]

The 76th Session of the Nevada Legislature (2011), passed Senate Bill 493, over opposition from the mining industry. Senate Bill 493 "...creates the Mining Oversight and Accountability Commission, a seven-member panel to oversee regulations for mining safety and taxation. An amendment to the measure also eliminated the major deductions mining companies may take when calculating net proceeds of minerals taxes." Some representatives of the mining industry said that one of the proposed changes would not increase tax collections: "'If you don’t let us deduct this, we’ll deduct something else.'" A Newmont Mining Corp. staffer used this argument to win the employee housing deduction, saying employee housing cut travel costs." [40] The mines in Nevada were to report their deductions to the Mining Oversight and Accountability Commission, which was created under S.B. 493.

Batu Hijau mine, Indonesia

On 6 August 2010, a 5 day long strike, which had completely shut US-based Newmont Mining Corp.’s Batu Hijau mines and operations on Sumbawa Island ended after some 1,500 miners of the PT NNT labour union, affiliated to the Chemical, Energy, Mine Workers’ Union of the Indonesia Workers’ Union, agreed to await an overtime pay judgment from a provincial government. "The dispute started some three weeks after the Manpower and Transmigration Ministry of West Nusa Tenggara Province issued an order that management was in arrears on Rp 126 billion (US$13.8 million) in overtime wages to some 1,919 workers dating back to 2008." [43]

Yanacocha mine, Peru

The Yanacocha gold mine in northern Peru is considered one of the largest and most profitable in the world, producing over US$7 billion worth of gold to date. Before 1994 the mine was co-owned by Newmont, Buenaventura (a Peruvian mining company), and Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières (BRGM), a French government-owned company. This partnership collapsed in 1994 after BRGM tried to sell part of its shares in the company to an Australian company which was a rival of Newmont. Newmont and Buenaventura would both go to court to challenge the trade.

Larry Kurlander, then a senior executive at Newmont, claimed the French President Jacques Chirac had sent a letter to then Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori asking him to intervene in the court case in favor of the French owned company. Kurlander had been sent by Newmont to Peru to try to get a favorable outcome for Newmont in the dispute. The legal battle would eventually make it all the way up to the Peruvian Supreme Court.

During this period Kurlander acknowledges having met with Vladimiro Montesinos, the Peruvian intelligence chief who has since been found guilty of embezzlement, illegally assuming his post as intelligence chief, abuse of power, influence peddling and bribing TV stations. However, Kurlander claims that he did nothing illegal and that the French government were taking similar steps in trying to contact Montesinos. The French ambassador to Peru Antoine Blanca denies this, pointing to the fact that Montesinos was on the CIA payroll and thus would naturally side with the U.S-based company.

After the fall of Fujimori in 2000 a number of videos Montesinos had taped of himself meeting with several domestic and foreign leaders and offering bribes and accepting them had emerged. In October 2005 Frontline in co-production with The New York Times found a February 1998 recording of a telephone conversation between Montesinos and Kurlander. The following is an excerpt from the tape:

Kurlander:...we have a very serious problem in Peru with our company (Newmont) and Minera Buenaventura so I have enlisted the support of some of my friends from a variety of intelligence communities. I need it especially because the other side (the French government) has been acting quite strangely.
Montesinos (to interpreter): Tell him that I am perfectly aware of the problem he has and the people he represents have with the French, as well as the problem he has with the judiciary.
Kurlander: So now you have a friend for life. I want a friend for life.
Montesinos (to interpreter): I thank you very much for what you have just told me and well you already have a friend. Tell him I'm going to help him with the voting. I would like to know the tricky practices of the French. The French Connection!
Kurlander: The French Connection!
(laughter) [44]

Along with this telephone conversation, Frontline and The New York Times also re-broadcast three other videos. One was filmed in April 1998 and shows Montesinos talking to "Don Arabian", the CIA station chief in Peru, in an attempt to get CIA to pressure the U.S. to back Newmont in the case. In the video Montesinos claims to have found e-mails from Paris to Peru of French officials trying to influence the court to get a decision favorable to France.

Another video recorded in May 1998 shows Montesinos meeting with Peruvian Supreme Court Justice, and former classmate, Jaime Beltran Quiroga. In it Montesinos states that state interests are at stake in the case between Newmont and BRGM. He tells Quiroga that if the decision goes to Newmont that the United States will back Peru in its border dispute with Ecuador which had a few years ago exploded into the Cenepa War. He also tells Quiroga to deny any connection with him to the press. Quiroga would later play a crucial role in the case, his vote would be the deciding vote in the Newmont victory. After the video was first broadcast in Peru in 2001, on a Peruvian local television station the French Ambassador Antoine Blanca was quoted as saying "Now I know why Newmont won".

In the final July 1999 video, Montesinos is again seen with the now departing CIA station chief "Don Arabian" giving him a gift and thanking him for the help he has given Peru stating "[W]e hope that when you're back their [in Washington] you'll remember your friends".

Buyat Bay, Sulawesi, Indonesia

In August 2004, the Indonesian Ministry of Environment filed a US$133.6 million civil lawsuit against Newmont,[45] claiming tailings from the company's Minahasa Raya mine polluted Buyat Bay in the North Sulawesi province, contaminating local fish stocks and causing nearby villagers to become seriously ill. Newmont denied the allegations, arguing that the illnesses had more to do with poor hygiene and poverty. On November 15, 2005, a South Jakarta court dismissed the suit on technical grounds, saying the government had breached the terms of its contract with Newmont when it took legal action before seeking arbitration. Environmentalists urged for the suit to be appealed, but on December 1, 2005, Environment Minister Rachmat Witoelar said the government expected to reach an out-of-court settlement with Newmont's local subsidiary. "By negotiating a settlement, we hope to be able to quickly compensate people living near the mine," he said. The government negotiating team was led by chief Economics Minister Aburizal Bakrie. On February 16, 2006, the Indonesian government announced it would settle the civil suit for US$30 million to be paid over the next 10 years. The agreement also includes increased scientific monitoring and enhanced community development programs for the North Sulawesi province.

With the civil lawsuit settled, attention focused on the criminal charges against President Director Richard Ness. In December 2006, Newmont Mining Corp. objected to a documentary entitled Bye Bye Buyat being nominated for Indonesia's top film award, FFI's Citra Award. The company said that it interfered with Ness' ongoing trial.[46]

After a 21-month trial—one of the longest proceedings in Indonesian history—Ness was found innocent of the pollution charges on April 24, 2007.[47] The court found that the company was in compliance with all regulations and permits during its operations at the site, and failed to find evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that Nemont's subsidiary had polluted Buyat Bay. At the end of May, the prosecution appealed to the Supreme Court to overturn the ruling.[47]

A week after being found not guilty of criminal charges, Richard Ness sued The New York Times in Indonesian court for libel. The lawsuit asks for nearly US$65 million in damages, and that The New York Times print a page-one retraction of previously published articles.[48] In October 2007 an Indonesian court threw out the suit stating it was not within their jurisdiction. The case was being appealed.[49]

Akyem, Ghana

Newmont received the 2009 Public Eye award for its Akyem project in Ghana. According to the jury it had destroyed unique natural habitats, carried out forced resettlement of local people and polluted soil and rivers.[50] Newmont described the information as misleading and said the project had been extensively studied by international and national environmental experts, members of the local communities, and by the appropriate governmental agencies and departments.[51]

In January 2010, Ghanaian authorities brought a lawsuit against Newmont Mining for a reported US$4.9 million.[52] The lawsuit accused Newmont of negligently spilling cyanide at its Ahafo gold mine in October 2009, resulting in water contamination and fish kills.[53] Newmont disputed the accusation, but agreed in March 2010 to pay compensation "in accordance with the law".[54]
