Newmont Announces Quarterly Revenue of $2.5 Billion, Cash Flow from Continuing Operations of $578 Million


Newmont Announces Quarterly Revenue of $2.5 Billion, Cash Flow from Continuing Operations of $578 Million

This release should be read in conjunction with Newmont's Third Quarter 2012 Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 1, 2012 (available at www.newmont.com).

DENVER, Nov. 1, 2012 /CNW/ - Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE: NEM) ("Newmont" or the "Company") today reported attributable net income from continuing operations of $400 million, or $0.81 per share, down 19% from $493 million, or $1.00 per share in the third quarter of 2011. Results for the third quarter of 2012 compared to the third quarter of 2011 were positively influenced by higher production from Nevada and at Yanacocha. Revenue from product sales also benefited from higher copper prices in the quarter. Results were also impacted by lower production and higher costs at Batu Hijau, (due to planned Phase 6 stripping), as well as previously announced lower ore tonnes and grade mined at Tanami and slightly lower grade at Ahafo due to mine sequencing. In addition, the Company incurred previously announced restructuring and other charges of $48 million. Adjusted net income(([1]))( )was $426 million, or $0.86 per share, compared with $635 million, or $1.29 per share, for the prior year quarter.

Quarterly Results


    --  Consolidated revenue of $2.5 billion, a decrease of 10% from
        the prior year quarter;
    --  Average realized gold and copper price of $1,659 per ounce and
        $3.55 per pound, down 2% and up 21%, respectively, from the
        prior year quarter;
    --  Attributable gold and copper production of 1.2 million ounces
        and 35 million pounds, down 5% and 38%, respectively, from the
        prior year quarter; attributable gold and copper sales of 1.2
        million ounces and 37 million pounds, down 4% and 27%,
        respectively, from the prior year quarter;
    --  Gold and copper costs applicable to sales ("CAS") of $693 per
        ounce and $2.38 per pound, up 11% and 116%, respectively, from
        the prior year quarter;
    --  Cash flow from continuing operations of $578 million, down 54%
        from the prior year quarter; and
    --  Fourth quarter gold price-linked dividend payable of $0.35 per
        share, consistent with the prior year quarter.

"Balanced performance from our operating portfolio allowed us to deliver 
results that were on track with our expectations for the quarter with strong 
performances at both our Nevada complex in North America and Yanacocha in Peru 
offset by weaker performance in our Asia Pacific region, primarily at 
Boddington and Tanami in Australia," said Richard O'Brien, Chief Executive 
Officer.  "We are also seeing clear progress on our commitment to deliver 
profitable ounces from new projects including our Akyem project in Ghana, 
which is 65% complete and proceeding on budget and on schedule to begin 
production in late 2013, and in Nevada where our Emigrant mine commenced 
production this quarter."

Newmont now expects to be at the low end of its previously announced 2012 
outlook for attributable gold and copper production of 5.0 to 5.1 million 
ounces and 145 to 165 million pounds, and at the high end of its narrower CAS 
outlook range of between $650 and $675 per ounce (on a co-product basis), due 
to previously announced issues at Tanami, Boddington and Waihi.  Newmont also 
increased its 2012 copper CAS outlook range to between $2.20 and $2.35 per 
pound, primarily due to higher cost production from Boddington and Batu Hijau 
in Indonesia.

Newmont is maintaining its 2012 attributable capital expenditure outlook of 
$2.7 to $3.0 billion, or $3.0 to $3.3 billion on a consolidated basis.

As previously announced, Newmont's Board of Directors approved a fourth 
quarter gold price-linked dividend payable of $0.35 per share[2] based upon 
the average London P.M. Gold Fix for the third quarter.

Operations

North America

Nevada – Attributable gold production in Nevada was 457,000 ounces at CAS of 
$661 per ounce during the third quarter. Gold production increased 7% from the 
prior year quarter due to higher mill grade at the Carlin Roaster, higher 
recovery at Mill 5 and higher leach placement as Emigrant commenced 
production, partially offset by lower grade at Phoenix. CAS per ounce 
increased 3% due to higher fuel prices, higher underground mining costs and 
lower capitalization of development costs, partially offset by higher 
by-product credits.

The Company is narrowing its outlook for 2012 attributable gold production of 
between 1.76 million and 1.78 million ounces at CAS of between $615 and $645 
per ounce.

La Herradura – Attributable gold production at La Herradura in Mexico was 
51,000 ounces at CAS of $608 per ounce during the third quarter.  Gold 
production decreased 6% from the prior year quarter due to smelter 
adjustments, partially offset by additional leach placement. Leach placement 
was higher due to additional tons mined at Noche Buena. CAS per ounce 
increased 6% due to higher waste mining and employee profit sharing costs.

The Company is maintaining its outlook for 2012 attributable gold production 
of between 220,000 and 230,000 ounces at a higher CAS of between $585 and $615 
per ounce, due to the expectation of mining lower grade material at Soledad 
and Dipolos due to mine sequencing.

South America

Yanacocha – Attributable gold production at Yanacocha in Peru was 182,000 
ounces at CAS of $520 per ounce during the third quarter. Gold production 
increased 8% from the prior year quarter due to higher mill and leach pad 
recovery, partially offset by lower leach placement at Yanacocha, Carachugo 
and La Quinua. CAS per ounce decreased 15% due to higher production and lower 
mining costs, partially offset by higher royalties and lower by-product 
credits.

The Company is narrowing its outlook for 2012 attributable gold production to 
between 680,000 and 690,000 ounces at CAS of between $485 and $515 per ounce.

La Zanja – Attributable gold production during the third quarter at La Zanja 
in Peru was approximately 14,000 ounces.

The Company is maintaining its outlook for 2012 attributable gold production 
of between 50,000 and 60,000 ounces.

Asia Pacific

Boddington – Attributable gold and copper production during the third 
quarter at Boddington in Australia was 166,000 ounces and 16 million pounds, 
respectively, at CAS of $928 per ounce and $2.29 per pound, respectively.  
Gold and copper production increased 1% and 7%, respectively, from the prior 
year quarter due to higher mill grade. Gold CAS per ounce increased 25% from 
the prior year quarter due to higher mill maintenance costs and the impact of 
the carbon tax, which took effect in July 2012. Copper CAS increased 2% per 
pound due to higher mill maintenance costs, partially offset by higher copper 
production. CAS per ounce and per pound were also impacted by a stronger 
Australian dollar, net of hedging gains.

The Company is reducing its outlook for 2012 attributable gold production to 
between 725,000 and 750,000 ounces due to unplanned mill downtime, at a higher 
CAS of between $865 and $895 per ounce due to higher mill maintenance costs. 
The Company is maintaining its outlook for attributable copper production of 
between 70 and 80 million pounds at a slightly higher CAS of between $2.25 and 
$2.40 per pound, due to higher mill maintenance costs.

Batu Hijau – Attributable gold and copper production during the third 
quarter at Batu Hijau in Indonesia was 7,000 ounces and 19 million pounds, 
respectively, at CAS of $1,115 per ounce and $2.38 per pound, respectively. 
Gold and copper production decreased 89% and 54%, respectively, due to 
processing lower grade stockpile ore. Waste tons mined increased 57% from the 
prior year quarter as Phase 6 waste removal continues as planned. CAS 
increased 134% per ounce and 164% per pound, respectively, due to lower 
production and higher waste mining costs.

The Company is maintaining its outlook for 2012 attributable gold production 
of between 30,000 and 40,000 ounces of gold at a higher CAS of between $955 
and $985 per ounce, due to higher waste mining costs. The Company is 
maintaining its outlook for attributable copper production of 75 to 85 million 
pounds at a slightly higher CAS of between $2.15 and $2.30 per pound, due to 
higher waste mining costs.

Other Australia/New Zealand – Attributable gold production during the third 
quarter was 222,000 ounces at CAS of $931 per ounce. Gold production decreased 
14% from the prior year quarter due to lower underground mining rates at 
Tanami, a delay in open pit ore production at Waihi and lower grade at Jundee 
and Kalgoorlie, partially offset by higher throughput at Jundee and higher 
grade at Tanami. CAS per ounce increased 36% from the prior year quarter due 
to lower production, higher operating costs, a stronger Australian dollar, net 
of hedging gains and the impact of the carbon tax in Australia.

The Company is reducing its outlook for 2012 attributable gold production to 
between 935,000 and 960,000 ounces due to continued lower tonnes mined at 
Tanami and Waihi, at a higher CAS of between $885 and $915 per ounce due to 
lower production.

Africa

Ahafo – Attributable gold production during the third quarter at Ahafo in 
Ghana was 131,000 ounces at CAS of $561 per ounce. Gold production decreased 
10% from the prior year quarter due to lower ore grade, partially offset by 
higher throughput and a drawdown of in-process inventory. CAS per ounce 
increased 12% from the prior year quarter due to lower production and higher 
labor costs, partially offset by lower power and mill maintenance costs.

The Company is maintaining its outlook for 2012 attributable gold production 
of between 555,000 to 570,000 ounces and narrowing its expected range of CAS 
to between $560 and $590 per ounce.

Capital Update

Consolidated capital expenditures were $811 million during the third quarter. 
Capital expenditures in North America were primarily related to the 
construction of the Phoenix secondary crusher and development of the Emigrant 
mine. Capital expenditures in South America were primarily related to the 
Conga and Merian projects, and the majority of capital expenditures in Asia 
Pacific were for surface and underground development. Capital expenditures in 
Africa were primarily related to the Akyem project. For the remainder of the 
year, 50% of 2012 consolidated capital expenditures are expected to be 
associated with major projects, while the remaining 50% is expected to be 
sustaining capital. Newmont is maintaining its 2012 attributable capital 
expenditure outlook to $2.7 to $3.0 billion, or $3.3 to $3.6 billion on a 
consolidated basis.

Supplemental Information

Non-GAAP Financial Measures  Non-GAAP financial measures are intended to 
provide additional information only and do not have any standard meaning 
prescribed by Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). These 
measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures 
of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income to GAAP Net Income  Management uses the 
non-GAAP financial measure Adjusted net income to evaluate the Company's 
operating performance, and for planning and forecasting future business 
operations. The Company believes the use of Adjusted net income allows 
investors and analysts to compare the results of the continuing operations of 
the Company and its direct and indirect subsidiaries relating to the 
production and sale of minerals to similar operating results of other mining 
companies, by excluding exceptional or unusual items, income or loss from 
discontinued operations and the permanent impairment of assets, including 
marketable securities and goodwill. Management's determination of the 
components of Adjusted net income are evaluated periodically and based, in 
part, on a review of non-GAAP financial measures used by mining industry 
analysts.

Net income attributable to Newmont stockholders is reconciled to Adjusted net 
income as follows:

Costs Applicable to Sales per Ounce/Pound  Costs applicable to sales per 
ounce/pound are non-GAAP financial measures. These measures are calculated by 
dividing the costs applicable to sales of gold and copper by gold ounces or 
copper pounds sold, respectively. These measures are calculated on a 
consistent basis for the periods presented on both a consolidated and 
attributable to Newmont basis. Attributable costs applicable to sales are 
based on our economic interest in production from our mines. For operations 
where we hold less than a 100% economic share in the production, we exclude 
the share of gold or copper production attributable to the non-controlling 
interest. We include attributable costs applicable to sales per ounce/pound to 
provide management, investors and analysts with information with which to 
compare our performance to other gold producers. Costs applicable to sales per 
ounce/pound statistics are intended to provide additional information only and 
do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and should not be 
considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance 
prepared in accordance with GAAP. The measures are not necessarily indicative 
of operating profit or cash flow from operations as determined under GAAP. 
Other companies may calculate these measures differently.

Net attributable costs applicable to sales per ounce measures the benefit of 
copper produced in conjunction with gold, as a credit against the cost of 
producing gold. A number of other gold producers present their costs net of 
the contribution from copper and other non-gold sales. We believe that 
including a measure of this basis provides management, investors and analysts 
with information with which to compare our performance to other gold 
producers, and to better assess the overall performance of our business. In 
addition, this measure provides information to enable investors and analysts 
to understand the importance of non-gold revenues to our cost structure.

However, such statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, which could cause actual results to differ materially from future results expressed, projected or implied by the "forward-looking statements". Such risks include, but are not limited to: (i) gold and other metals price volatility; (ii) currency fluctuations; (iii) increased capital and operating costs and scarcity of competition for required labor and supplies; (iv) variances in ore grade or recovery rates from those assumed in mining plans; (v) political and operational risks; (vi) community relations, conflict resolution and outcome of projects or oppositions; and (vii) governmental regulation and judicial outcomes. For a more detailed discussion of such risks and other factors, see the Company's 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed on February 24, 2012, with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as the Company's other SEC filings. The Company does not undertake any obligation to release publicly revisions to any "forward-looking statement," including, without limitation, outlook, to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this news release, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except as may be required under applicable securities laws. Investors should not assume that any lack of update to a previously issued "forward-looking statement" constitutes a reaffirmation of that statement. Continued reliance on "forward-looking statements" is at investors' own risk.
