Letter from John L. Thornton and Mark Bristow

John L. Thornton, executive chairman of Barrick, and Mark Bristow, president and chief executive officer.

Dear Barrick stakeholder:

Today Barrick is re-born out of the merger between Barrick Gold and Randgold Resources.  When the company’s shares start trading on the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange this morning, it will herald what we believe will be a new era for the gold mining industry—an era in which Barrick will lead the recognition of sustainable value creation as its primary goal.

With the best asset base and the strongest management team in the sector, we are well placed to be the world’s most valued gold mining business.  We will do so by optimising our existing operations, pursuing new opportunities that meet strict investment criteria and developing them with disciplined efficiency.  In all that we do we will be guided by a long-term strategy and clear implementation plans designed to deliver sustainable returns to our owners and real benefits to our partners, host countries and communities.

Thank you for your interest in and support for our former businesses.  We hope you will continue to accompany us as we, under our new Barrick logo, embark on an exciting journey towards our objectives.

Yours sincerely,

John L. Thornton
Executive chairman

D. Mark Bristow
