TORONTO, September 11, 2015  Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:ABX)(TSX:ABX) (Barrick or the "company") has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for the eighth consecutive year; the company was also included in the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index for the ninth year in a row.

"We are honored to be included in this respected index again this year," said Barrick President Kelvin Dushnisky. "It tells us that we are continuing to live up to the values that, from day one, have driven Barrick's success, values like trust and transparency, social responsibility and accountability, and the pursuit of excellence in all that we do. When we stay true to these values and build strong partnerships with host communities, governments, and our employees, we position ourselves for long-term success."

Each year, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index independently evaluates more than 2,500 companies using rigorous sustainability criteria to identify the top 10 percent of performers. Companies are evaluated on a range of sustainability metrics, including governance, social performance, environment and economic contributions  taking into account both industry-specific trends as well as sustainability issues facing multiple sectors.

Operating in a responsible manner creates significant value for Barrick's shareholders, employees, local communities and host countries. In 2014, Barrick contributed $9.7 billion in the form of wages and benefits, royalties and taxes, purchases of goods and services, and community investments in its host countries and communities. This includes $3.6 billion in the developing and emerging countries where Barrick operates.
