Apr 22 10:04 2019 Print This Article

Newmont Goldcorp (NYSE:NEM)(TSX:NGT) and Canada’s Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX)(NYSE:GOLD), the No. 1 and 2 bullion producers, have cleared all the regulatory conditions to combine their operations in Nevada ahead of schedule.

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission, said the companies, granted an early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act on April 19.

The new business, yet to be named, will be owned 38.5% by Newmont Goldcorp and 61.5% by Barrick, which will also be the operator of what the partners say it’ll be the world’s largest gold producing complex.

The “historic” business combination (as the duo called it) is expected to generate savings of $500 million a year within the first full five years. It includes Barrick’s Goldstrike, Cortez, Turquoise Ridge, and Goldrush and Newmont’s Carlin, Twin Creeks, Phoenix, Long Canyon, along with associated processing plants and infrastructure of both companies.
