pound amounts)
The following Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") provides information
that management believes is relevant to an assessment and understanding of the
consolidated financial condition and results of operations of Newmont
Corporation
, a Delaware corporation, and its subsidiaries (collectively,
"Newmont," the "Company," "our" and "we"). We use certain non-GAAP financial
measures in our MD&A. For a detailed description of each of the non-GAAP
measures used in this MD&A, please see the discussion under "Non-GAAP Financial
Measures" within Part I, Item 2, Management's Discussion and Analysis.
This item should be read in conjunction with our interim unaudited Condensed
Consolidated Financial Statements and the notes thereto included in this
quarterly report. Additionally, the following discussion and analysis should be
read in conjunction with Management's Discussion and Analysis of Consolidated
Financial Condition and Results of Operations and the Consolidated Financial
Statements included in Part II of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year
ended December 31, 2019 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission
("SEC") on February 20, 2020.
Overview
Newmont is the world's leading gold company and is the only gold company
included in the S&P 500 Index and the Fortune 500 list of companies. We have
been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index-World for 13 consecutive
years and have adopted the World Gold Council's Conflict-Free Gold Policy. In
June 2020, Newmont was ranked the top miner in 3BL Media's 100 Best Corporate
Citizens list which ranks the 1,000 largest publicly traded U.S. companies on
environmental, social and governance transparency and performance. We are
engaged in the exploration for and acquisition of gold and copper properties. We
have significant operations and/or assets in the United States ("U.S."), Canada,
Mexico, Dominican Republic, Peru, Suriname, Argentina, Chile, Australia and
Ghana.
During the first half of 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak escalated to a global
pandemic, which has had varying impacts in the jurisdictions in which we
operate. In response, the Company temporarily placed five sites into care and
maintenance, including Musselwhite, Éléonore, Yanacocha and Cerro Negro in March
2020
and Peñasquito in April 2020. Operations at all five mine sites resumed in
the second quarter of 2020 and activity was in various stages of ramping up as
of June 30, 2020.
Refer to the "Second Quarter 2020 Highlights", "Results of Consolidated
Operations", "Liquidity and Capital Resources", "Non-GAAP Financial Measures"
and "Accounting Developments" for further information about the impacts of the
COVID-19 pandemic on the Company.

On April 18, 2019 (the "acquisition date"), Newmont completed the business
acquisition of Goldcorp, Inc. ("Goldcorp"), an Ontario corporation. The Company
acquired all outstanding common shares of Goldcorp in a primarily stock
transaction (the "Newmont Goldcorp transaction") for total cash and non-cash
consideration of $9,456. The financial information included in the following
discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations during
the period ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same periods in 2019, includes
the results of operations acquired in the Newmont Goldcorp transaction since
April 18, 2019. For further information, see Note 3 to the Condensed
Consolidated Financial Statements.
On March 10, 2019, the Company entered into an implementation agreement with
Barrick Gold Corporation ("Barrick") to establish a joint venture ("Nevada JV
Agreement"). On July 1, 2019 (the "effective date"), Newmont and Barrick
consummated the Nevada JV Agreement and established Nevada Gold Mines LLC
("NGM"). As of the effective date, the Company contributed its Carlin, Phoenix,
Twin Creeks and Long Canyon mines ("existing Nevada mining operations") and
Barrick contributed certain of its Nevada mining operations and assets. Newmont
and Barrick hold economic interests in the joint venture equal to 38.5% and
61.5%, respectively. Barrick acts as the operator of NGM with overall management
responsibility and is subject to the supervision and direction of NGM's Board of
Managers
. 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. The financial information included in the
following discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of
operations during the period ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same periods
in 2019, includes the results of operations of NGM since July 1, 2019.
We continue to focus on improving safety and efficiency at our operations,
maintaining leading environmental, social and governance practices, and
sustaining our global portfolio of longer-life, lower cost mines to generate the
financial flexibility we need to strategically reinvest in the business,
strengthen the Company's investment-grade balance sheet and return cash to
shareholders.
Asset Sales
Kalgoorlie
We entered into a binding agreement dated December 17, 2019, to sell our 50%
interest in Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines ("Kalgoorlie"), included as part
of the Australia segment, to Northern Star Resources Limited ("Northern Star").
The Company completed the sale on January 2, 2020. As the sale was completed on
January 2, 2020, there are no results for Kalgoorlie for the three and six
months ended June 30, 2020 included herein.

Red Lake
We entered into a binding agreement dated November 25, 2019, to sell the Red
Lake
complex in Ontario, Canada, included as part of the Company's North America
segment, to Evolution Mining Limited ("Evolution"). The Company completed the
sale on March 31, 2020. As the sale was completed on March 31, 2020, results for
Red Lake for the six months ended June 30, 2020 are included within the
discussion below; there are no results for the three months ended June 30, 2020
included herein.

The increase in Net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to
Newmont stockholders for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the
same period in 2019, is primarily due to higher average realized gold prices,
the change in fair value of investments, lower operating costs as a result of
reduced sales volumes, lower Goldcorp transaction and integration costs, lower
exploration costs from the suspension of exploration drilling activities as a
result of the COVID-19 pandemic and lower remediation adjustments, partially
offset by lower sales volumes due to temporarily placing certain operations into
care and maintenance in addition to the sale of Kalgoorlie during 2020 and
higher income and mining tax expense.
The increase in Net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to
Newmont stockholders for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the
same period in 2019, is primarily due to higher average realized gold prices,
the recognized gain on the sales of Kalgoorlie, Continental Gold, Inc.
("Continental") and Red Lake in 2020, lower Goldcorp transaction and integration
costs, the change in fair value of investments, lower exploration costs from the
suspension of exploration drilling activities as a result of the COVID-19
pandemic and lower remediation adjustments, partially offset by lower sales
volumes due to temporarily placing certain operations into care and maintenance
in addition to the sale of Kalgoorlie during 2020, higher amortization rates
from the formation of NGM, the impairment charge of TMAC Resources, Inc.
("TMAC") and charges from debt extinguishment. For discussion regarding
variations in production volumes and unit cost metrics, see Results of
Consolidated Operations below.

The increase in gold sales during the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared
to the same period in 2019, is primarily due to higher average realized gold
prices, partially offset by lower ounces sold due to certain operations being
placed into care and maintenance in addition to the sale of Red Lake and
Kalgoorlie during 2020. The increase in gold sales during the six months ended
June 30, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019, is primarily due to higher
average realized gold prices and higher volumes sold at the sites acquired as
part of the Newmont Goldcorp transaction driven by six months of operations in
2020 as compared to three months in 2019, partially offset by lower ounces sold
due to certain operations being placed into care and maintenance in addition to
the sale of Red Lake and Kalgoorlie during 2020. For further discussion
regarding changes in volumes, see Results of Consolidated Operations below.
The decreases in copper sales during the three and six months ended June 30,
2020
, compared to the same periods in 2019, are primarily due to copper being
produced as a by-product at Phoenix upon the formation of NGM on July 1, 2019,
compared to a co-product for the six months ended June 30, 2019, and lower
production at Boddington. For further discussion regarding changes in volumes,
see Results of Consolidated Operations below.
The increases in silver, lead and zinc sales during the three and six months
ended June 30, 2020 are associated with increased production at Peñasquito
primarily due to the blockade at Peñasquito in the prior year reducing
production and six months of operations in 2020 as compared to three months in
2019, partially offset by Peñasquito being placed into care and maintenance
during a portion of 2020. See Results of Consolidated Operations below.
The details of our Costs applicable to sales are set forth below. See Note 4 to
our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information.

The decreases in Costs applicable to sales for gold during the three and six
months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same periods in 2019, are primarily
due to lower ounces sold due to certain operations being placed into care and
maintenance in addition to the sale of Red Lake and Kalgoorlie during 2020 and
lower stockpile and leach pad inventory adjustments, partially offset by higher
costs associated with the sites acquired as part of the Newmont Goldcorp

2019 compared to a co-product for the six months ended June 30, 2019, partially
offset by higher mill maintenance costs at Boddington.
The decrease in Costs applicable to sales for silver and lead during the three
months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019, is due to
Peñasquito being placed into care and maintenance during a portion of 2020. The
increase in Costs applicable to sales for silver and lead during the six months
ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019, is primarily due to

The increases in Depreciation and amortization for gold during the three and six
months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same periods in 2019, are primarily
due to higher amortization rates from the formation of NGM, increased sales
volumes at Peñasquito, and Borden and Quecher Main achieving commercial
production in the fourth quarter of 2019.
The decreases in Depreciation and amortization for copper for the three and six
months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same periods in 2019, are primarily
due to copper being produced as a by-product at Phoenix upon the formation of
NGM on July 1, 2019.
The increases in Depreciation and amortization for silver, lead and zinc during
the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same periods in
2019, are primarily due to the blockade at Peñasquito in the prior year reducing
production and six months of operations in 2020 as compared to three months in
2019, partially offset by Peñasquito being placed into care and maintenance
during a portion of 2020.
For discussion regarding variations in operations, see Results of Consolidated
Operations below.
Reclamation and remediation decreased by $33 and $25 during the three and six
months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same periods in 2019, primarily due
to remediation adjustments in the prior year related to updates of project cost
estimates at Dawn remediation site and water management cost estimates at Con
mine.
Exploration expense decreased by $43 and $40 during the three and six months
ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same periods in 2019, primarily due to
suspension of exploration drilling activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Table of Contents
Advanced projects, research and development expense decreased by $6 and $6
during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same
periods in 2019, primarily due to lower spend in Nevada following the formation
of NGM. The decrease for six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same
period in 2019, was also partially offset by increased spend associated with
full potential opportunities in North America.
General and administrative expense decreased by $9 and $3 during the three and
six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same periods in 2019, primarily
due to the progression of integration activities for the Newmont Goldcorp
transaction and other cost reduction efforts. The decrease for the six months
ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019, was also partially
offset by increased consulting services. General and administrative expense as a
percentage of Sales was 3.0% and 2.8% for the three and six months ended
June 30, 2020, compared to 3.6% and 3.4% in the same periods in 2019.
Care and maintenance was $125 and $145 during the three and six months ended
June 30, 2020, respectively. Care and maintenance represents direct operating
costs incurred at sites temporarily placed into care and maintenance as a result
of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Other expense, net decreased by $78 and $113 during the three and six months
ended June 30, 2020, compared to the same periods in 2019, primarily due to
decreases in transaction costs associated with the Newmont Goldcorp transaction
and the Nevada JV Agreement, partially offset by COVID-19 specific costs
incurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and higher restructuring and other
costs.
Gain on asset and investment sales, net was $(1) and $592 during the three and
six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, and was $32 and $33 during the
three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively. The change for the three
months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 2019, is primarily due to the gain on
the sale of exploration properties in North America in the second quarter of
2019. The change for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 2019, is
primarily due to the 2020 sales of Kalgoorlie in Australia, the Red Lake complex
in Canada and our investment in Continental. See Note 9 for additional
information on asset sales and Note 19 for additional information on investment
sales.
Other income, net increased by $140 and decreased by $93 during the three and
six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, compared to the same periods in
2019. The increase for the three months ended June 30, 2020 is primarily due to
larger increases in the fair value of investments in the current year, partially
offset by unrealized foreign exchange losses in the current year compared to
unrealized foreign exchange gains in the prior year. The decrease for the six
months ended June 30, 2020 is primarily due to an other-than-temporary
impairment of our investment in TMAC and debt extinguishment charges, partially
offset by larger increases in the fair value of investments in the current year.
Interest expense, net decreased by $4 during the three months ended June 30,
2020
compared to the same period in 2019 primarily due to lower interest rates
as a result of the Company's recent debt refinancing transactions. Interest
expense, net increased by $20 during the six months ended June 30, 2020 compared
to the same period in 2019 primarily due to increased debt balances as a result
of the Newmont Goldcorp transaction and a decrease in capitalized interest.
Income and mining tax expense (benefit) was $164 and $20, and $141 and $145
during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The
effective tax rate is driven by a number of factors and the comparability of our
income tax expense for the reported periods will be primarily affected by (i)
variations in our income before income taxes; (ii) geographic distribution of
that income; (iii) impacts of the changes in tax law; (iv) valuation allowances
on tax assets; (v) percentage depletion; (vi) fluctuation in the value of the
United States
dollar and foreign currencies; and (vii) the impact of specific
transactions and assessments. As a result, the effective tax rate will
fluctuate, sometimes significantly, year to year. This trend is expected to
continue in future periods. See Note 11 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial
Statements for further discussion of income taxes.

On March 18, 2020, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act ("FFCR Act"),
and on March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act
("CARES Act") were each enacted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The FFCR
Act and the CARES Act contain numerous income tax provisions such as the
accelerated recoverability of alternative minimum tax credits and relaxing
limitations on the deductibility of interest and on the use of net operating
losses. The Company has analyzed this legislation and has determined that it has
no effect on the income tax expense. However, due to the provision accelerating
the recoverability of alternative minimum tax credits, the Company expects to
receive a refund of all outstanding alternative minimum tax credits by the end
of the calendar year and has now reflected these amounts as an income taxes
receivable included in Other current assets as of June 30, 2020.
In addition to the FFCR and CARES Acts, governments in various jurisdictions in
which the Company operates, passed legislation in response to the COVID-19
pandemic. The Company has evaluated these provisions and determined there is no
impact on the income tax expense.
Equity income (loss) of affiliates was $29 and $66 during the three and six
months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, and was $26 and $21 during the three
and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively. The year to date increase is
primarily due to income of $83 from the Pueblo Viejo mine, which was acquired as
part of the Newmont Goldcorp transaction. For the three and six months ended
June 30, 2020, earnings before income taxes and depreciation and amortization
related to the Pueblo Viejo Mine ("Pueblo Viejo EBITDA") was $82 and $183,
respectively, and was $74 and $74 during the three and six months ended June 30,
2019

respectively. Pueblo Viejo EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. See "Non-GAAP
Financial Measures" within Part I, Item 2, Management's Discussion and Analysis.
For additional information regarding our Equity income (loss) of affiliates, see
Note 12.
Net income (loss) from discontinued operations was $(68) and $(83) for the three
and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively. The change is primarily due to
an increase in the Holt royalty obligation resulting from an increase in the
expected gold price and a decrease in the discount rate, partially offset by a
deferral of planned production as the Holt operations were placed in care and
maintenance by the operator. Net income (loss) from discontinued operations was
$(26) and $(52) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively.
The change is primarily due to an increase in the Holt royalty obligation
resulting from a decrease in the discount rate and an increase in the expected
production and gold price.
For additional information regarding our discontinued operations, see Note 13 to
our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Net loss (income) attributable to noncontrolling interests from continuing
operations was $3 and $5 during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020,
respectively, and was $25 and $57 during the three and six months ended June 30,
2019
, respectively. The change is due to net losses at Yanacocha in the current
year compared to net income in the prior year.
Results of Consolidated Operations
Newmont has developed gold equivalent ounces ("GEO") metrics to provide a
comparable basis for analysis and understanding of our operations and
performance related to copper, silver, lead and zinc. Gold equivalent ounces are
calculated as pounds or ounces produced multiplied by the ratio of the other
metals' price to the gold price, using the metal prices in the table below:
