Barrick’s 2014 full year gold production guidance is 6.1-6.4 million ounces from a portfolio that includes some of the world’s premier gold assets. Expected all-in sustaining costs of $880-$920 per ounce1 are the lowest of the senior gold producers. Adjusted operating costs in 2014 are expected to be $580-$630 per ounce1.
Our five cornerstone mines — Cortez and Goldstrike in Nevada, Lagunas Norte in Peru, Veladero in Argentina and Pueblo Viejo in the Dominican Republic — are expected to generate about 60% of 2014 production at average all-in sustaining costs of $730-$780 per ounce1. These superior assets position Barrick extremely well amongst our peers in the current gold price environment.
Copper production in 2014 is expected to be 440-460 million pounds at C1 cash costs of $1.90-$2.001 per pound.
