FIRST QUARTER 2023 RESULTS DRIVERS

Production volumes came in line with our previously signaled expectations for the first quarter, with higher than signaled production at Tanami and Ahafo, partially offset by lower than planned production at our non-managed joint ventures. Compared to the fourth quarter, earnings were in-line despite lower sales volumes, which were partially offset by higher realized gold prices, including $17 million of favorable mark-to-market adjustments on provisionally-priced gold ounces. Gold CAS per ounce was higher than the fourth quarter due to lower sales volumes, partially offset by lower gross costs from easing inflation on commodities, materials and supplies. Advanced projects and exploration spend was lower than the fourth quarter, but is expected to be higher in the second quarter and the remainder of the year.

Cash flow from continuing operations was $481 million, which was lower than the fourth quarter due to lower sales volumes, partially offset by higher gold prices. Cash flow from continuing operations was also impacted by approximately $360 million of unfavorable working capital movements, including $187 million of cash tax payments, approximately $170 million of build-up of stockpiles and finished goods inventory partially due to the timing of concentrate sales at Peñasquito, and approximately $160 million in timing of payments on accrued liabilities which typically occurs in the first quarter. In addition, we reinvested $526 million in capital spend as we continue to progress our near-term projects.

FIRST QUARTER 2023 FINANCIAL AND PRODUCTION SUMMARY

Attributable gold production1 decreased 5 percent to 1,273 thousand ounces from the prior year quarter primarily due to lower mill recovery and ore grade milled at Peñasquito as a result of the planned mine sequencing, the impact of the mill shutdown at Tanami due to the rainfall event and lower production at Nevada Gold Mines. These decreases were partially offset by higher ore grade milled at Ahafo and higher mill throughput and ore grade milled at Éléonore. Attributable gold sales versus production was impacted by the timing of concentrate shipments at Peñasquito. This concentrate has been sold and the revenue will be realized in the second quarter.

Gold CAS totaled $1.2 billion for the quarter. Gold CAS per ounce2 increased 15 percent to $1,025 per ounce from the prior year quarter primarily due to lower gold sales volumes and higher direct operating costs as a result of inflationary pressures, driven by higher labor costs and an increase in commodity input costs.

Gold AISC per ounce2 increased 19 percent to $1,376 per ounce from the prior year quarter primarily due to higher CAS per gold ounce and higher sustaining capital spend.

Attributable gold equivalent ounce (GEO) production from other metals decreased 18 percent to 288 thousand ounces primarily due to lower mill recovery at Peñasquito. This decrease was partially offset by higher ore grade milled at Boddington. Attributable GEO sales versus production was impacted by the timing of concentrate shipments at Peñasquito. This concentrate has been sold and the revenue will be realized in the second quarter.

CAS from other metals totaled $243 million for the quarter. CAS per GEO2 increased 28 percent to $918 per ounce from the prior year quarter primarily due to lower other metal sales at Peñasquito, as well as higher direct operating costs as a result of inflationary pressures, driven by higher labor costs and an increase in commodity input costs.

AISC per GEO2 increased 33 percent to $1,322 per ounce primarily due to higher CAS per GEO and higher sustaining capital spend.

Average realized gold price was $1,906, an increase of $14 per ounce over the prior year quarter. Average realized gold price includes $1,901 per ounce of gross price received, a favorable impact of $14 per ounce mark-to-market on provisionally-priced sales and reductions of $9 per ounce for treatment and refining charges.

Revenue decreased 11 percent from the prior year quarter to $2.7 billion primarily due to lower sales volumes for all metals except copper and lower average realized co-product metal prices.

Net income from continuing operations attributable to Newmont stockholders was $339 million or $0.42 per diluted share, a decrease of $93 million from the prior year quarter primarily due to lower sales volumes, lower average realized co-product metal prices and higher CAS predominately resulting from cost inflation impacts. These decreases were partially offset by a non-cash pension settlement charge recognized in 2022, lower depreciation and amortization, and the net gain of $36 million recognized on the exchange and subsequent sale of Triple Flag Precious Metals Corporation shares compared to the loss on the sale of the La Zanja equity method investment in 2022.

Adjusted net income3was $320 million or $0.40 per diluted share,compared to $546 million or $0.69 per diluted share in the prior year quarter. Primary adjustments to first quarter net income include changes in the fair value of investments of $41 million and the net gain of $36 million recognized on the exchange and subsequent sale of Triple Flag Precious Metals Corporation shares, as well as valuation allowance and other tax adjustments.

Adjusted EBITDA3 decreased 29 percent to $1.0 billion for the quarter, compared to $1.4 billion for the prior year quarter.

Capital expenditures4 increased 20 percent from the prior year quarter to $526 million primarily due to higher sustaining capital spend. Development capital expenditures in 2023 primarily relate to Tanami Expansion 2, Yanacocha Sulfides, Ahafo North, Pamour and Cerro Negro District Expansion 1.

Consolidated operating cash flow from continuing operations decreased 30 percent from the prior year quarter to $481 million primarily due to a decrease in revenue due to lower sales volumes and lower average realized co-product metal prices, an increase in operating cash expenditures resulting from the impacts of inflation on input costs and a build-up of inventory compared to the same period in 2022, primarily at Peñasquito.

Free Cash Flow5decreased to $(45) million from $252 million in the prior year quarter primarily due to lower operating cash flow and higher capital expenditures.

Balance sheet and liquidity remained strong in the first quarter, ending the quarter with $2.7 billion of consolidated cash and $797 million of time deposits with a maturity of more than three months but less than one year, with approximately $6.5 billion of total liquidity; reported net debt to adjusted EBITDA of 0.6x6.

Nevada Gold Mines (NGM) attributable gold production was 261 thousand ounces, with CAS of $1,109 per ounce2 and AISC of $1,405 per ounce2 for the first quarter. NGM EBITDA6 was $191 million.

Pueblo Viejo (PV) attributable gold production was 60 thousand ounces for the quarter. Cash distributions received for the Company's equity method investment in Pueblo Viejo totaled $26 million in the first quarter. Capital contributions of $36 million were made during the quarter related to the expansion project at Pueblo Viejo.

Progressing Profitable Near-Term Projects from Unmatched Organic Pipeline

Newmont’s project pipeline supports stable production with improving margins and mine life1. Newmont's 2023 and longer-term outlook includes current development capital costs and production related to Tanami Expansion 2, Ahafo North, Pamour and Cerro Negro District Expansion 1. Development capital outlook for 2023 and 2024 includes spend related to the Yanacocha Sulfides project ahead of the investment decision planned for late 2024; additional development capital spend and all metal production for Yanacocha Sulfides has been excluded from longer-term outlook beginning in 2025.

Additional projects not listed below represent incremental improvements to the Company's outlook.

  • Tanami Expansion 2 (Australia) secures Tanami’s future as a long-life, low-cost producer by extending mine life beyond 2040 through the addition of a 1,460 meter hoisting shaft and supporting infrastructure to process 3.3 million tonnes per year and provide a platform for future growth. The expansion is expected to increase average annual gold production by approximately 150,000 to 200,000 ounces per year for the first five years and reduce operating costs by approximately 10 percent, bringing average all-in sustaining costs to $900 to $1,000 per ounce for Tanami (2026-2030). Commercial production for the project is expected in the second half of 2025. Total capital costs are estimated to be between $1.2 and $1.3 billion. Development costs (excluding capitalized interest) since approval were $551 million, of which $52 million related to the three months ended March 31, 2023.
  • Ahafo North (Africa) expands our existing footprint in Ghana with four open pit mines and a stand-alone mill located approximately 30 kilometers from the Company’s Ahafo South operations. The project is expected to add between 275,000 and 325,000 ounces per year with all-in sustaining costs of $800 to $900 per ounce for the first five full years of production. Ahafo North is the best unmined gold deposit in West Africa with approximately 3.8 million ounces of Reserves and 1.4 million ounces of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources2 and significant upside potential to extend beyond Ahafo North’s current 13-year mine life. Commercial production for the project is expected in the second half of 2025. Total capital costs are estimated to be between $950 and $1,050 million. Development costs (excluding capitalized interest) since approval were $254 million, of which $42 million related to the three months ended March 31, 2023.
  • Yanacocha Sulfides (South America) will develop the first phase of sulfide deposits and an integrated processing circuit, including an autoclave to produce 45% gold, 45% copper and 10% silver. The first phase focuses on developing the Yanacocha Verde and Chaquicocha deposits to extend Yanacocha’s operations beyond 2040 with second and third phases having the potential to extend life for multiple decades. In the third quarter of 2022, Newmont announced the decision to delay the project in order to manage project execution risk, move out of a period of significant inflation and to balance development capital cash flows. Management continues to assess the execution and project timeline, up to and including transitioning Yanacocha operations into full closure; the project remains subject to an investment decision. Development capital spend on the project is expected to be approximately $300 to $350 million per year in 2023 and 2024 related to advanced engineering, procurement and completing camp construction.
  • Pamour (North America) extends the life of Porcupine and maintains production beyond 2024. The project will optimize mill capacity, adding volume and supporting high grade ore from Borden and Hoyle Pond, while supporting further exploration in a highly prospective and proven mining district. An investment decision is expected in late 2023 as opportunities have been identified to extend production from current operations, allowing for a deferral of project spending. Formal updates to capital estimates and estimated project completion will be provided closer to the investment decision.
  • Cerro Negro District Expansion 1 (South America) includes the simultaneous development of the Marianas and Eastern districts to extend the mine life of Cerro Negro beyond 2030. The project is expected to improve production to above 350,000 ounces beginning in 2024 and provides a platform for further exploration and future growth through additional expansions. Development capital costs for the project are estimated to be between $350 and $450 million.

_____________________________________

1 Project estimates remain subject to change based upon uncertainties, including future market conditions, continued impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, inflation, commodities and raw materials prices, supply chain disruptions, labor markets, engineering and mine plan assumptions, future funding decisions, consideration of strategic capital allocation and other factors, which may impact estimated capital expenditures, AISC and timing of projects. See end of this release for cautionary statement regarding forward-looking statements.

2 Total resources presented for Ahafo North includes Measured and Indicated resources of 910 thousand gold ounces and Inferred resources of 490 thousand gold ounces. See cautionary statement at the end of this release.

2023 Outlook Remains Second-Half Weighted as Previously Signaled

Newmont’s outlook reflects increasing gold production and ongoing investment into its operating assets and most promising growth prospects. Newmont's reserves and mine planning gold price assumption has been set at $1,400 per ounce. 2023 outlook assumes a $1,700 per ounce revenue gold price for CAS and AISC, including royalties and production taxes. For 2023, Newmont has assumed normalizing levels of inflation, improving throughout the year, with a year-over-year average escalation rate of approximately 3%.

Outlook includes development capital, costs and production related to Tanami Expansion 2, Ahafo North, Pamour and Cerro Negro District Expansion 1. Development capital outlook for 2023 and 2024 includes spend related to the Yanacocha Sulfides project ahead of the investment decision planned for late 2024; additional development capital spend and all metal production for Yanacocha Sulfides has been excluded from longer-term outlook beginning in 2025.

*Estimated 2023 seasonality remains subject to change and represents management’s expectations of future production results as of April 27, 2023.

In the second quarter of 2023, we expect to produce approximately 24 percent of our full year gold guidance, primarily driven by the following sites:

  • Tanami - Higher milling rates expected in the second quarter, with continued recovery from the first quarter rainfall event
  • Boddington - Higher grades expected in the second quarter; stripping expected to begin in the second half of the year
  • Ahafo - Higher grades expected in the second quarter due to the planned mine sequence and the progression of work at Subika Underground
  • Akyem - Higher grades expected in the second quarter due to the planned mine sequence
  • Peñasquito - Lower production expected in the second quarter due to the planned mine sequence resulting in lower grades from the Chile Colorado pit

We expect to deliver approximately 55 percent of our full year gold production guidance in the second half of the year.

a 2023 outlook projections are considered forward-looking statements and represent management’s good faith estimates or expectations of future production results as of February 23, 2023. Outlook is based upon certain assumptions, including, but not limited to, metal prices, oil prices, certain exchange rates and other assumptions. For example, 2023 Outlook assumes $1,700/oz Au, $3.50/lb Cu, $20.00/oz Ag, $1.35/lb Zn, $0.90/lb Pb, $0.70 USD/AUD exchange rate, $0.77 USD/CAD exchange rate and $90/barrel WTI. Production, CAS, AISC and capital estimates exclude projects that have not yet been approved, except for Yanacocha Sulfides, Pamour and Cerro Negro District Expansion 1 which are included in Outlook. The potential impact on inventory valuation as a result of lower prices, input costs, and project decisions are not included as part of this Outlook. Assumptions used for purposes of Outlook may prove to be incorrect and actual results may differ from those anticipated, including variation beyond a +/-5% range. Outlook cannot be guaranteed. As such, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance upon Outlook and forward-looking statements as there can be no assurance that the plans, assumptions or expectations upon which they are placed will occur. Amounts may not recalculate to totals due to rounding. See cautionary at the end of this release.

b All-in sustaining costs (AISC) as used in the Company’s Outlook is a non-GAAP metric; see below for further information and reconciliation to consolidated 2023 CAS outlook.

c Consolidated production for Merian is presented on a total production basis for the mine site; attributable production represents a 75% interest for Merian.

d Represents the ownership interest in the Nevada Gold Mines (NGM) joint venture. NGM is owned 38.5% by Newmont and owned 61.5% and operated by Barrick. The Company accounts for its interest in NGM using the proportionate consolidation method, thereby recognizing its pro-rata share of the assets, liabilities and operations of NGM.

e Attributable production includes Newmont’s 40% interest in Pueblo Viejo, which is accounted for as an equity method investment.

Attributable Free Cash Flow

Management uses Attributable Free Cash Flow as a non-GAAP measure to analyze cash flows generated from operations that are attributable to the Company. Attributable Free Cash Flow is Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities after deducting net cash flows from operations attributable to noncontrolling interests less Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities of discontinued operations after deducting net cash flows from discontinued operations attributable to noncontrolling interests less Additions to property, plant and mine development after deducting property, plant and mine development attributable to noncontrolling interests. The Company believes that Attributable Free Cash Flow is useful as one of the bases for comparing the Company’s performance with its competitors. Although Attributable Free Cash Flow and similar measures are frequently used as measures of cash flows generated from operations by other companies, the Company’s calculation of Attributable Free Cash Flow is not necessarily comparable to such other similarly titled captions of other companies.

The presentation of non-GAAP Attributable Free Cash Flow is not meant to be considered in isolation or as an alternative to Net income attributable to Newmont stockholders as an indicator of the Company’s performance, or as an alternative to Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities as a measure of liquidity as those terms are defined by GAAP, and does not necessarily indicate whether cash flows will be sufficient to fund cash needs. The Company’s definition of Attributable Free Cash Flow is limited in that it does not represent residual cash flows available for discretionary expenditures due to the fact that the measure does not deduct the payments required for debt service and other contractual obligations or payments made for business acquisitions. Therefore, the Company believes it is important to view Attributable Free Cash Flow as a measure that provides supplemental information to the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

The following tables set forth a reconciliation of Attributable Free Cash Flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, to Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, which the Company believes to be the GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to Attributable Free Cash Flow, as well as information regarding Net cash provided by (used in) investing activities and Net cash provided by (used in) financing activities.

The reconciliation is provided for illustrative purposes in order to better describe management’s estimates of the components of the calculation. Estimates for each component of the forward-looking All-in sustaining costs per ounce are independently calculated and, as a result, the total All-in sustaining costs and the All-in sustaining costs per ounce may not sum to the component ranges. While a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure has been provided for the 2023 AISC Gold Outlook on a consolidated basis, a reconciliation has not been provided on an individual site or project basis in reliance on Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of Regulation S-K because such reconciliation is not available without unreasonable efforts.

Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio

Management uses net debt to Adjusted EBITDA as non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company’s operating performance, including our ability to generate earnings sufficient to service our debt. Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA represents the ratio of the Company’s debt, net of cash and cash equivalents and time deposits, to Adjusted EBITDA. Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA does not represent, and should not be considered an alternative to, net income (loss), operating income (loss), or cash flow from operations as those terms are defined by GAAP, and does not necessarily indicate whether cash flows will be sufficient to fund cash needs. Although Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA and similar measures are frequently used as measures of operations and the ability to meet debt service requirements by other companies, our calculation of net debt to Adjusted EBITDA measure is not necessarily comparable to such other similarly titled captions of other companies. The Company believes that net debt to Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and Board of Directors. Management’s determination of the components of net debt to Adjusted EBITDA is evaluated periodically and based, in part, on a review of non-GAAP financial measures used by mining industry analysts. Net income (loss) attributable to Newmont stockholders is reconciled to Adjusted EBITDA as follows:

Net average realized price per ounce/ pound

Average realized price per ounce/ pound are non-GAAP financial measures. The measures are calculated by dividing the net consolidated gold, copper, silver, lead and zinc sales by the consolidated gold ounces, copper pounds, silver ounces, lead pounds and zinc pounds sold, respectively. These measures are calculated on a consistent basis for the periods presented on a consolidated basis. Average realized price per ounce/ pound statistics are intended to provide additional information only, 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.

The following tables reconcile these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure:

Gold by-product metrics

Copper, silver, lead and zinc are by-products often obtained during the process of extracting and processing the primary ore-body. In our GAAP Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, the value of these by-products is recorded as a credit to our CAS and the value of the primary ore is recorded as Sales. In certain instances, copper, silver, lead and zinc are co-products, or a significant resource in the primary ore-body, and the revenue is recorded as Sales in our GAAP Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Gold by-product metrics are non-GAAP financial measures that serve as a basis for comparing the Company’s performance with certain competitors. As Newmont’s operations are primarily focused on gold production, “Gold by-product metrics” were developed to allow investors to view Sales, CAS per ounce and AISC per ounce calculations that classify all copper, silver, lead and zinc production as a by-product, even when copper, silver, lead or zinc is a significant resource in the primary ore-body. These metrics are calculated by subtracting copper, silver, lead and zinc sales recognized from Sales and including these amounts as offsets to CAS.

Gold by-product metrics are calculated on a consistent basis for the periods presented on a consolidated basis. These metrics are intended to provide supplemental information only, 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. Other companies may calculate these measures differently as a result of differences in the underlying accounting principles, policies applied and in accounting frameworks, such as in IFRS.

The following tables reconcile these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures:

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking Statements, Including Outlook:

This news release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which are intended to be covered by the safe harbor created by such sections and other applicable laws. Where a forward-looking statement expresses or implies an expectation or belief as to future events or results, such expectation or belief is expressed in good faith and believed to have a reasonable basis. 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. Forward-looking statements often address our expected future business and financial performance and financial condition; and often contain words such as “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “will,” “would,” “estimate,” “expect,” “believe,” or “potential.” Forward-looking statements in this news release may include, without limitation, (i) estimates of future production and sales, including production outlook, average future production and upside potential; (ii) estimates of future costs applicable to sales and all-in sustaining costs; (iii) estimates of future capital expenditures, including development and sustaining capital; (iv) expectations regarding the Tanami Expansion 2, Ahafo North, Yanacocha Sulfides, Pamour and Cerro Negro District Expansion 1 projects, including, without limitation, expectations for production, milling, costs applicable to sales and all-in sustaining costs, capital costs, mine life extension, upside potential, construction completion, commercial production, and other timelines; (v) expectations regarding future investments or divestitures; (vi) expectations regarding free cash flow and returns to stockholders, including with respect to future dividends, the dividend framework and expected payout levels; (vii) expectations regarding future mineralization, including, without limitation, expectations regarding reserves and recoveries; and (viii) other outlook. Estimates or expectations of future events or results are based upon certain assumptions, which may prove to be incorrect. Such assumptions, include, but are not limited to: (i) there being no significant change to current geotechnical, metallurgical, hydrological and other physical conditions; (ii) permitting, development, operations and expansion of operations and projects being consistent with current expectations and mine plans; (iii) political developments in any jurisdiction in which the Company operates being consistent with its current expectations; (iv) certain exchange rate assumptions; (v) certain price assumptions for gold, copper, silver, zinc, lead and oil; (vi) prices for key supplies; (vii) the accuracy of current mineral reserve and mineralized material estimates; and (viii) other planning assumptions. Uncertainties relating to the impacts of Covid-19 and other health emergencies could result in supply chain impacts, operating sites being placed into care and maintenance and impact estimates, costs escalations and timing of projects. Although the Company does not currently have operations in Ukraine, Russia or other parts of Europe, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has resulted in uncertainties in the market which could impact certain planning assumptions, including, but not limited to commodity and currency prices, costs and supply chain availabilities. Investors are reminded that the dividend framework is non-binding and the 2023 dividend payout range does not represent a legal commitment. Future dividends beyond the dividend payable on June 15, 2023 to holders of record at the close of business on June 1, 2023 have not yet been approved or declared by the Board of Directors, and an annualized dividend payout or dividend yield has not been declared by the Board. Management’s expectations with respect to future dividends are “forward-looking statements” and the Company’s dividend framework is non-binding. The declaration and payment of future dividends remain at the discretion of the Board of Directors and will be determined based on Newmont’s financial results, balance sheet strength, cash and liquidity requirements, future prospects, gold and commodity prices, and other factors deemed relevant by the Board. No guarantees can be made that the Company will be able to maintain the same dividend level in the future. For a more detailed discussion of risks and other factors that might impact future looking statements, see the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), under the heading “Risk Factors", available on the SEC website or www.newmont.com. 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.

Notice Regarding Reserve and Resource:

Unless otherwise stated herein, the reserves stated in this release represent estimates at December 31, 2022, which could be economically and legally extracted or produced at the time of the reserve determination. Estimates of proven and probable reserves are subject to considerable uncertainty. Such estimates are, or will be, to a large extent, based on metal prices and interpretations of geologic data obtained from drill holes and other exploration techniques, which data may not necessarily be indicative of future results. Additionally, resource does not indicate proven and probable reserves as defined by the SEC or the Company’s standards. Estimates of measured, indicated and inferred resource are subject to further exploration and development, and are, therefore, subject to considerable uncertainty. Inferred resources, in particular, have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and their economic and legal feasibility. The Company cannot be certain that any part or parts of the resource will ever be converted into reserves. For additional information on our reserves and resources, please see Item 2 of the Company’s Form 10-K, filed on February 23, 2023 with the SEC.
