Newmont Mining Corporation (NEM) (Newmont or the Company) has reached commercial production at Long Canyon, a higher grade oxide mine in an emerging gold district located less than 100 miles from its existing Nevada operations. The Company declared commercial production based on sustaining plant availability of more than 85 percent, and achieving a minimum of 70 percent of modeled leach recovery. The project was accomplished two months ahead of plan for an investment of just under $225 million, which is about $50 million or 18 percent below budget.

The first phase of development is expected to produce between 100,000 and 150,000 ounces of gold per year over an eight year mine life at estimated costs applicable to sales of between $400 and $500 per ounce, and all-in sustaining cost of between $500 and $600 per ounce1. The project was optimized by taking a phased development approach, relying on refurbished instead of new equipment, and building a leach facility rather than a mill. At current gold prices, the project is expected to generate a 26 percent rate of return with a payback period of just under four years.
