Strong Shareholder Support for Barrick at Annual Meeting

Toronto – An overwhelming majority of shares voted at the meeting supported the three resolutions put to shareholders at Barrick Gold Corporation’s annual meeting today.

Each of the eleven nominee directors listed in the Information Circular for the 2022 Annual Meeting of Shareholders was elected with at least 87% of the vote, the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as auditors received 88% of the vote and the advisory resolution on the company’s approach to executive compensation gained 93% of the vote.

Executive chairman John Thornton said the board was gratified by the outcome and thanked shareholders particularly for their emphatic demonstration of confidence in Barrick’s leadership and the progress it is making in building a sustainably profitable business, more than capable of dealing effectively with the challenges and changes that face the industry, and the world.

Detailed results of the vote for the election of directors, the appointment of auditors and the advisory resolution on executive compensation are set out below.
