    Barrick Gold prices $3 billion debt offer...THIS WAS THE HEADLINE IN APRIL 2013 FROM THEIR LAST FRAUD

    TORONTO (Reuters) -

    Barrick Gold Corp said on Monday that it would issue some $3 billion in debt securities to pay down a revolving credit facility, repay principal on notes due in 2013, and for general corporate purposes.

    The world's largest gold miner will offer $650 million in 2.5 percent notes due 2018, $1.5 billion in 4.1 percent notes due in 2023, and $850 million in 5.75 percent notes due in 2043. The 2043 notes are guaranteed by the company.

    Toronto-based Barrick, which had previously said that it planned to issue long-term debt securities to further improve liquidity, expects the offering to close around May 2, 2013.

    The company's total debt stood $14.8 billion as of March 31, according to its first-quarter earnings release.

    Barrick has struggled in recent weeks with the sharp fall in gold prices, a shareholder revolt over its executive compensation plan and new setbacks at its flagship Pascua-Lama development project on the border of Chile and Argentina.

    The company was downgraded last week by both Moody's and S&P, after a Chilean court ordered a partial suspension of construction at Pascua-Lama
