Norton Gold Eyes 3 Barrick Gold Mines
May 10 13
Norton Gold Fields Limited (ASX:NGF) said it will look at bidding for Darlot, Granny Smith and Lawlers mines of Barrick Gold Corporation (TSX:ABX). A person familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal in April 2013 that Barrick has appointed Bank of AmericaMerrill Lynch and UBS AG to find a buyer for the mines. "Frankly, we are growing, so I cannot hide that we would be interested," Dianmin Chen, Norton's Chief Executive Officer, said. According to Dow Jones, a Perth-based spokeswoman for Barrick Gold didn't return requests for comment. Chen declined to say how any offer for Barrick's three mines could be structured. "Zijin is in the stage to grow their business internationally and, given the current market, maybe it is a good time for expanding further in Australia. It is important that we set up an example in Australia that Chinese-backed gold mines can make money," Chen added.

Barrick Gold Corporation announced unaudited consolidated earnings and production results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. Net earnings attributable to the equity holders of Barrick and adjusted net earnings for the first quarter 2013 of $847 million or $0.85 per diluted share and $923 million or $0.92 per diluted share, respectively, compared to net earnings and adjusted net earnings of $1.04 billion or $1.04 per diluted share and $1.10 billion or $1.10 per diluted share, respectively, in the same prior year period. The decrease in net earnings and adjusted net earnings was largely driven by lower realized gold and copper prices, lower gold and copper sales volumes and higher cost of sales applicable to gold and copper, partially offset by lower income tax expense. First quarter 2013 operating cash flow was $1.09 billion compares to $1.37 billion in the first quarter of 2012. Adjusted operating cash flow of $1.16 billion removes the impact of the Australian dollar hedge settlement and compares to adjusted operating cash flow of $1.48 billion in the same prior year period. For the quarter, revenue was $3,437 million and income before income taxes was $1,281 million against revenue of $3,644 million and income before income taxes of $1,585 million a year ago. Capital expenditures were $1,430 million against $1,415 million a year ago.
First quarter 2013 gold production was 1.80 million ounces at all-in sustaining and total cash costs of $919 per ounce and $561 per ounce, respectively. All-in sustaining and total cash costs benefited from strong performances at Goldstrike, Cortez, and Veladero. Copper output for the quarter was 127 million pounds at C1 cash cost of $2.46 per pound. The higher C1 cost at Lumwana primarily reflect the impact of the wet season, including higher processing and labor costs. Gold sold was 1,747,000 ounces compared to 1,783,000 ounces for the same period a year ago. Copper sold was 115 million pounds compared to 119 million pounds for the same period a year ago.
The company reaffirmed 2013 gold production guidance of 7.0 million to 7.4 million ounces at total cash costs of $610 to $660 per ounce. Full year all-in sustaining cost guidance has been reduced to $950 to $1,050 per ounce from the previous guidance of $1,000 to $1,100 per ounce. Full year total copper guidance for the company remains unchanged and now expects to produce 480 million to 540 million pounds.
