Business Wire

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Newmont Mining Corporation (NEM) today reported second quarter 2014 financial and operating results, including:

  • Achieved reported net income attributable to shareholders from continuing operations of $182 million, or $0.37 per basic share, and adjusted net income1 of $101 million, or $0.20 per basic share;
  • Reduced costs applicable to sales (CAS) by 17 percent to $744 per ounce of gold and by 67 percent to $2.53 per pound of copper over second quarter 2013 including current and prior period inventory adjustments;
  • Generated cost savings of $359 million in gold all-in sustaining costs2 (AISC);
  • Generated cash from continuing operations of $378 million and $124 million in free cash flow from continuing operations;
  • Delivered 1.2 million ounces and 20,000 tonnes of attributable gold and copper production, respectively;
  • Improved gold CAS outlook3 by three percent to $720 to $760 per ounce in 2014;
  • Increased attributable gold production outlook by two percent to 4.7 to 5.0 million ounces in 2014;
  • Announced a decision to develop the Merian project in Suriname;
  • Announced the sale of the Jundee operation in Australia for total proceeds of approximately $94 million, bringing the total value of divestments to nearly $800 million in the last year; and
  • Declared a third quarter dividend of $0.025 per share in accordance with the Company’s gold price-linked dividend policy4.

“We continued to improve costs and efficiencies during the second quarter with $359 million in all-in sustaining cost reductions. We also continued to optimize our project pipeline and asset portfolio while reaching a decision to develop the Merian mine in Suriname, which establishes a prospective new district for Newmont,” said Gary Goldberg, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We delivered $124 million in free cash flow in the second quarter and have generated nearly $800 million through fairly valued divestments over the last 12 months. Based on this positive trajectory, we have updated our 2014 outlook to reflect lower costs and higher production. Finally, we continue to work with the Indonesian government to find a fair solution that allows us to resume normal operations as quickly as possible.”

Merian Update

Newmont has announced a decision to develop the Merian gold mine in Suriname. The new mine is expected to begin production in late 2016, pending receipt of the Right of Exploitation from the government of Suriname. Merian offers Newmont a profitable new operation in Suriname, and a foothold in the prospective Guiana Shield region.

During Merian’s first five years of operation, the Company forecasts average annual production of between 400,000 and 500,000 attributable ounces of gold at all-in sustaining costs of between $750 and $850 per ounce. Total capital to bring Merian into commercial production is estimated at between $900 million and $1 billion on a 100 percent basis. The government of Suriname has an option to earn up to a 25 percent fully-funded equity ownership stake, including all project capital and operating expenses and an initial earn-in contribution.

Indonesia Update

On June 5, 2014, PT Newmont Nusa Tenggara (PTNNT), the entity operating the Batu Hijau mine, invoked the force majeure clause of its Contract of Work (CoW), the investment agreement entered into by PTNNT and the Indonesian government in 1986 and valid through 2030, due to the inability to export preventing continued production. On July 1, 2014, PTNNT and Nusa Tenggara Partnership B.V. (NTPBV), a Dutch entity and PTNNT’s majority shareholder, announced filing for international arbitration against the Government of Indonesia to seek relief from export restrictions that have halted production at Batu Hijau. As a result, we have modified Indonesian guidance for 2014 and updated our outlook for 2015 and 2016. In the meantime, the Company remains committed to seeking opportunities to resolve outstanding issues with the Government of Indonesia to resume normal operations.

Attributable gold production increased by approximately five percent from the prior year quarter due to higher production from Africa and Australia/New Zealand, partially offset by lower production from South America. Attributable copper production increased by four percent due to new production from Phoenix Copper Leach in Nevada, offsetting lower production from Batu Hijau related to export issues. Gold CAS per ounce decreased by 17 percent due to continued reductions in direct operating costs as well as lower stockpile and leach pad inventory adjustments, partially offset by higher unit mining costs in South America. Copper CAS per pound decreased 67 percent due to lower stockpile inventory adjustments compared to the prior year quarter.

Second Quarter Operating Results by Region

North America

Attributable gold production at Carlin increased three percent from the prior year quarter due to higher throughput and grade at Mill 6 as well as higher recoveries at Emigrant. Utilization at Mill 6 has improved by 10 percent year to date through optimization of management controls and scheduled downtime. CAS per ounce increased 24 percent from the prior year quarter due to planned stripping at Gold Quarry and the Carlin North Area, partially offset by lower direct operating costs achieved by optimizing haulage costs and reducing leach pad consumables. Development of the Turf Vent Shaft continues on schedule and on budget.

Attributable gold production at Phoenix decreased 19 percent from the prior year quarter due to lower grades and throughput. Copper production increased 29 percent from the prior year quarter due to Phoenix Copper Leach which commenced production in the fourth quarter of 2013. Gold CAS per ounce increased four percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to lower ounces sold. Copper CAS per pound increased 41 percent from the prior year quarter, due to lower grades and higher allocation of costs to copper production based on revenue.

Attributable gold production at Twin Creeks decreased 19 percent from the prior year quarter primarily due to lower production following the sale of Midas, as well as lower grades and volumes at the Twin Creeks Autoclave. CAS per ounce decreased 19 percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to a lower strip ratio and the sale of Midas.

Attributable gold production at La Herradura decreased 15 percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to the temporary suspension of an explosives permit. CAS per ounce decreased 28 percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to the ramp-up of production upon receipt of a new explosives permit.

Gold AISC in North America was $1,032 per ounce, a decrease of six percent over the prior year quarter due to lower advanced project and exploration spending and lower sustaining capital achieved through sustainable cost and efficiency improvements. Copper AISC was $3.15 per pound, an increase of 32 percent over the prior year quarter due to the increase in CAS as previously mentioned.

South America

Attributable gold production at Yanacocha decreased 35 percent from the prior year quarter, due primarily to planned processing of lower grade stockpiled ore and declining grades at Tapado Oeste and Chaquicocha. CAS per ounce increased 46 percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to higher direct mining costs on a unit basis related to the decline in production compared to the prior year period.

Gold AISC in South America was $1,398 per ounce, an increase of 47 percent over the prior year quarter primarily due to higher direct mining costs on a unit basis related to lower grade production compared to the prior year period.

Australia/New Zealand

Attributable gold production at Boddington decreased two percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to lower ore grades. This was partially offset by higher mill throughput. Mill utilization rates have increased 13 percent year to date through improved conveyor reliability and consolidation of planned maintenance shutdowns.

Copper production at Boddington was essentially in line with the prior year quarter as higher throughput was mostly offset by lower ore grades. Gold CAS per ounce decreased 31 percent and copper CAS per pound decreased 26 percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to lower stockpile inventory adjustments, lower mill maintenance costs and lower mining costs on a unit basis as a result of higher tons mined. These were achieved through an improved strip ratio with improved shovel availability and a change in the mine sequence contributing to the increase in tons mined.

Attributable gold production at Tanami increased 53 percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to higher grades from the Auron ore body coupled with improved mining rates. Mining rates were enhanced through improvements in truck utilization and stope availability leading to higher mill throughput. CAS per ounce decreased 36 percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to higher production coupled with lower underground mining costs on a unit basis.

Attributable gold production at Jundee increased one percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to higher ore grade and throughput, and was partially offset by a build-up of in-circuit inventory. CAS per ounce decreased 20 percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to lower underground mining costs and higher production.

Attributable gold production at Waihi increased 64 percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to increased mining and throughput. CAS per ounce decreased 53 percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to higher production and lower operating costs related to the stripping campaign in the prior year period.

Attributable gold production at KCGM increased five percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to a combination of higher ore grades and recovery, improved throughput and higher concentrate production, partially offset by a build-up of gold in-circuit inventory. CAS per ounce decreased 46 percent from the prior year quarter, through lower direct operating costs, higher production, and the impact of the inventory adjustment in the prior year quarter.

Gold AISC in Australia/New Zealand was $926 per ounce, a decrease of 35 percent, and copper AISC was $3.31 per pound, a decrease of 14 percent over the prior year quarter due to lower operating costs and the impact of the inventory adjustment in the prior year quarter.

Indonesia

Attributable gold production at Batu Hijau increased 17 percent primarily due to higher grade and higher metal recovery, and was partially offset by lower throughput as a result of the export issues. Attributable copper production decreased five percent due to lower throughput related to the ramp down and was partially offset by higher ore grade milled and higher recovery. Gold CAS per ounce and copper CAS per pound decreased 80 percent and 75 percent, respectively, from the prior year quarter, primarily due to lower inventory adjustments, partially offset by the abnormal production costs related to the suspension of operations. CAS includes $16 million of abnormal costs related to the suspended operation, which equates to $267 per ounce and $0.70 per pound this quarter.

Gold AISC in Indonesia was $1,556 per ounce, a decrease of 74 percent, and copper AISC was $4.32 per pound, a decrease of 66 percent over the prior year quarter due to lower inventory adjustments than the prior year quarter.

Africa

Attributable gold production at Ahafo decreased 10 percent from the prior year quarter due to lower grades and throughput. CAS per ounce decreased 10 percent from the prior year quarter, primarily due to lower costs, a decrease in mining rates to synchronize with mill capacity, and improved costs and tire life. Akyem contributed 113,000 ounces of gold production at CAS of $396 per ounce.

Gold AISC in Africa was $688 per ounce this quarter, a decrease of 34 percent over the prior year quarter due to lower advanced projects and exploration spending and higher volume.

Outlook Update

For 2014, the Company now expects total attributable gold production of 4.7 to 5.0 million ounces up from 4.6 to 4.9 million ounces, an increase of two percent. CAS is now expected to be $720 to $760 per ounce reduced from $740 to $790 per ounce, a reduction of three percent. The Company also expects total copper production of 90 to 100 thousand tonnes at CAS of $2.80 to $3.10 per pound and AISC of $3.80 to $4.10 per pound.

Outlook for 2015 and 2016 has been revised to include the recent sale of Jundee, and initial production from Merian in late 2016. The timing and outcome of a resolution in Indonesia is difficult to predict; however, for illustrative purposes guidance reflects the receipt of export permits for Batu Hijau, by January 1, 2015. The Batu Hijau mine is in care and maintenance pending receipt of export permits, with PTNNT expected to incur approximately $20 to $25 million per month in holding costs. For the second half of 2014, PTNNT plans to ship approximately 58,400 tonnes of concentrate containing approximately 14,400 tonnes of copper and approximately 11,000 ounces of gold from inventory to PT Smelting. PTNNT’s ability to export will impact these expectations and assumptions and Newmont’s ability to achieve outlook.

Balance Sheet and Financial Flexibility

In the second quarter, cash from continuing operations was $378 million and free cash flow generated from continuing operations was $124 million. At quarter end, the Company held $1.7 billion of consolidated cash on its balance sheet. During the quarter, the Company also announced the close of a $575 million five-year, amortizing term loan that was used to repay the $575 million convertible debt issue that matured July 15, 2014.

Capital Update

Total capital spent in the second quarter was $254 million. Capital expenditures in North America during the second quarter of 2014 were primarily related to the development of the Turf Vent Shaft in Nevada. Capital expenditures in South America, Australia and New Zealand, Indonesia, and Africa were primarily for sustaining capital, which has been reduced across the portfolio through improved asset management.

Total consolidated capital spending is now expected to be $1.4 to $1.485 billion, including $200 to $220 million of project capital for Merian partially offset by lower sustaining capital spending.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures are intended to provide additional information only and do not have any standard meaning prescribed by generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted net income (loss)

Management of the Company uses Adjusted net income (loss) to evaluate the Company’s operating performance, and for planning and forecasting future business operations. The Company believes the use of Adjusted net income (loss) allows investors and analysts to compare results of the continuing operations of the Company and its direct and indirect subsidiaries relating to the production and sale of minerals to similar operating results of other mining companies, by excluding exceptional or unusual items. Management’s determination of the components of Adjusted net income (loss) are evaluated periodically and based, in part, on a review of non-GAAP financial measures used by mining industry analysts. Net income (loss) attributable to Newmont stockholders is reconciled to Adjusted net income (loss) as follows:

Costs applicable to sales per ounce/pound

Costs applicable to sales per ounce/pound are non-GAAP financial measures. These measures are calculated by dividing the costs applicable to sales of gold and copper by gold ounces or copper pounds sold, respectively. These measures are calculated on a consistent basis for the periods presented on a consolidated basis. Costs applicable to sales per ounce/pound statistics are intended to provide additional information only and do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The measures are not necessarily indicative of operating profit or cash flow from operations as determined under GAAP. Other companies may calculate these measures differently.

The following tables reconcile these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

All-In Sustaining Costs

Newmont has worked to develop a metric that expands on GAAP measures such as cost of goods sold and non-GAAP measures to provide visibility into the economics of our mining operations related to expenditures, operating performance and the ability to generate cash flow from operations.

Current GAAP-measures used in the mining industry, such as cost of goods sold, do not capture all of the expenditures incurred to discover, develop, and sustain gold production. Therefore, we believe that All-in sustaining costs is a non-GAAP measure that provides additional information to management, investors, and analysts that aid in the understanding of the economics of our operations and performance compared to other producers and in the investor’s visibility by better defining the total costs associated with production.

All-in sustaining cost (“AISC”) amounts are intended to provide additional information only and do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The measures are not necessarily indicative of operating profit or cash flow from operations as determined under GAAP. Other companies may calculate these measures differently as a result of differences in the underlying accounting principles, policies applied and in accounting frameworks such as in International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”), or by reflecting the benefit from selling non-gold metals as a reduction to AISC. Differences may also arise related to definitional differences of sustaining versus development capital activities based upon each company’s internal policies.

The following disclosure provides information regarding the adjustments made in determining Newmont’s All-in sustaining costs measure:

Cost Applicable to Sales - Includes all direct and indirect costs related to current production incurred to execute the current mine plan. Costs Applicable to Sales (“CAS”) includes by-product credits from certain metals obtained during the process of extracting and processing the primary ore-body. CAS is accounted for on an accrual basis and excludes Depreciation and Amortization and Reclamation and remediation, which is consistent with our presentation of CAS on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. In determining All-in sustaining costs, only the CAS associated with producing and selling an ounce of gold or a pound of copper is included in the measure. Therefore, the amount of CAS included in AISC is derived from the CAS presented in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. The allocation of CAS between gold and copper at the Phoenix, Boddington, and Batu Hijau mines is based upon the relative production percentage of copper and gold sold during the period.

Remediation Costs - Includes accretion expense related to asset retirement obligations (“ARO”) and the amortization of the related Asset Retirement Cost (“ARC”) for the Company’s operating properties recorded as an ARC asset. Accretion related to ARO and the amortization of the ARC assets for reclamation and remediation do not reflect annual cash outflows but are calculated in accordance with GAAP. The accretion and amortization reflect the periodic costs of reclamation and remediation associated with current gold production and are therefore included in the measure. The allocation of these costs to gold and copper is determined using the same allocation used in the allocation of CAS between gold and copper at the Phoenix, Boddington, and Batu Hijau mines.

Advanced Projects and Exploration - Includes incurred expenses related to projects that are designed to increase or enhance current gold production and gold exploration. We note that as current resources are depleted, exploration and advanced projects are necessary for us to replace the depleting reserves or enhance the recovery and processing of the current reserves. As this relates to sustaining our gold production, and is considered a continuing cost of a mining company, these costs are included in the AISC measure. These costs are derived from the Advanced projects, research and development and Exploration amounts presented in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. The allocation of these costs to gold and copper is determined using the same allocation used in the allocation of CAS between gold and copper at the Phoenix, Boddington, and Batu Hijau mines.

General and Administrative - Includes cost related to administrative tasks not directly related to current gold production, but rather related to support our corporate structure and fulfilling our obligations to operate as a public company. Including these expenses in the AISC metric provides visibility of the impact that general and administrative activities have on current operations and profitability on a per ounce basis.

Other Expense, net - Includes costs related to regional administration and community development to support current production. We exclude certain exceptional or unusual expenses from Other expense, net, such as restructuring, as these are not indicative to sustaining our current operations. Furthermore, this adjustment to Other expense, net is also consistent with the nature of the adjustments made to Net income (loss) as disclosed in the Company’s non-GAAP financial measure Adjusted net income (loss). The allocation of these costs to gold and copper is determined using the same allocation used in the allocation of CAS between gold and copper at the Phoenix, Boddington, and Batu Hijau mines.

Treatment and Refining Costs - Includes costs paid to smelters for treatment and refining of our concentrates to produce the salable precious metal. These costs are presented net as a reduction of Sales.

Sustaining Capital - We determined sustaining capital as those capital expenditures that are necessary to maintain current gold production and execute the current mine plan. Capital expenditures to develop new operations, or related to projects at existing operations where these projects will enhance gold production or reserves, are considered development. We determined the breakout of sustaining and development capital costs based on a systematic review of our project portfolio in light of the nature of each project. Sustaining capital costs are relevant to the AISC metric as these are needed to maintain the Company’s current gold operations and provide improved transparency related to our ability to finance these expenditures from current operations. The allocation of these costs to gold and copper is determined using the same allocation used in the allocation of CAS between gold and copper at the Phoenix, Boddington, and Batu Hijau mines.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking Statements, Including Outlook:

This release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which are intended to be covered by the safe harbor created by such sections and other applicable laws. Such forward-looking statements may include, without limitation: (i) estimates of future production and sales; (ii) estimates of future costs applicable to sales and All-in sustaining costs; (iii) estimates of future consolidated and attributable capital expenditures; (iv) plans and expectations to reduce costs and expenditures; (v) expectations regarding the development, growth and exploration potential of the Company’s projects, including, without limitation, Merian; and (vi) expectations regarding the timing and/or likelihood of resolution of export issues in Indonesia. Estimates or expectations of future events or results are based upon certain assumptions, which may prove to be incorrect. Such assumptions, include, but are not limited to: (i) there being no significant change to current geotechnical, metallurgical, hydrological and other physical conditions; (ii) permitting, development, operations and expansion of the Company’s operations and projects being consistent with current expectations and mine plans, including without limitation receipt of export approvals; (iii) political developments in any jurisdiction in which the Company operates being consistent with its current expectations; (iv) certain exchange rate assumptions for the Australian dollar to the U.S. dollar, as well as other the exchange rates being approximately consistent with current levels; (v) certain price assumptions for gold, copper and oil; (vi) prices for key supplies being approximately consistent with current levels; (vii) the accuracy of our current mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates; and (viii) other assumptions noted herein. Where the Company expresses or implies an expectation or belief as to future events or results, such expectation or belief is expressed in good faith and believed to have a reasonable basis. However, such statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, which could cause actual results to differ materially from future results expressed, projected or implied by the “forward-looking statements”. Such risks include, but are not limited to, gold and other metals price volatility, currency fluctuations, increased production costs and variances in ore grade or recovery rates from those assumed in mining plans, political and operational risks, community relations, conflict resolution and outcome of projects or oppositions and governmental regulation and judicial outcomes. For a more detailed discussion of such risks and other factors, see the Company’s 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed on February 21, 2014, with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as the Company’s other SEC filings. The Company does not undertake any obligation to release publicly revisions to any “forward-looking statement,” including, without limitation, outlook, to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this news release, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except as may be required under applicable securities laws. Investors should not assume that any lack of update to a previously issued “forward-looking statement” constitutes a reaffirmation of that statement. Continued reliance on “forward-looking statements” is at investors' own risk.

Investors are reminded that this news release should be read in conjunction with Newmont’s Second Quarter Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or about July 29, 2014 (available at www.newmont.com).
