Attributable gold production1 decreased 8 percent to 1,344 thousand ounces from the prior year quarter primarily due to lower mill throughput at CC&V, Tanami, Porcupine and Nevada Gold Mines, lower ore grades milled at Peñasquito, Pueblo Viejo, Éléonore and Porcupine, and a build-up of in-circuit inventory. These decreases were partially offset by higher ore grade milled at Boddington and higher production at Yanacocha due to the acquisition of Buenaventura's 43.65% ownership in February 2022.

Gold CAS totaled $1.2 billion for the quarter. Gold CAS per ounce2 increased 18 percent to $890 per ounce from the prior year quarter primarily due to lower ounces sold, higher direct operating costs, a draw-down of in-circuit inventory and lower by-product credits at Yanacocha.

Gold AISC per ounce3 increased 11 percent to $1,156 per ounce from the prior year quarter primarily due to higher CAS per ounce.

Attributable gold equivalent ounce (GEO) production from other metals increased 10 percent to 350 thousand ounces primarily due to higher ore grade milled at Peñasquito and Boddington.

CAS from other metals totaled $251 million for the quarter. CAS per GEO2 increased 29 percent to $717 per ounce from the prior year quarter primarily due to higher allocation of costs to other metals at Peñasquito.

AISC per GEO3 increased 22 percent to $997 per ounce primarily due to higher CAS per GEO.

Net income from continuing operations attributable to Newmont stockholders was $432 million or $0.54 per diluted share, a decrease of $106 million from the prior year quarter primarily due to lower gold sales volumes, higher CAS, a pension settlement charge of $130 million, the loss recognized on the sale of the La Zanja equity method investment in 2022 compared to a gain on the sale of TMAC in 2021 and higher reclamation and remediation charges. These decreases were partially offset by higher average realized metal prices, unrealized gains on marketable and other equity securities in 2022 compared to unrealized losses in 2021 and lower income tax expense.

Adjusted net income4 was $546 million or $0.69 per diluted share, compared to $594 million or $0.74 per diluted share in the prior year quarter. Primary adjustments to first quarter net income include pension settlement charges, changes in the fair value of investments, the loss recognized on the sale of the La Zanja equity method investment, reclamation and remediation charges, settlement costs, a voluntary contribution made to support humanitarian efforts in Ukraine, and valuation allowance and other tax adjustments.

Adjusted EBITDA5 decreased 5 percent to $1.4 billion for the quarter, compared to $1.5 billion for the prior year quarter.

Revenue increased 5 percent from the prior year quarter to $3.0 billion primarily due to higher average realized gold prices and higher copper sales volumes, which were partially offset by lower gold sales volumes.

Average realized price6 for gold was $1,892, an increase of $141 per ounce over the prior year quarter. Average realized gold price includes $1,883 per ounce of gross price received, the favorable impact of $17 per ounce mark-to-market on provisionally-priced sales and reductions of $8 per ounce for treatment and refining charges.

Capital expenditures7 increased 10 percent from the prior year quarter to $437 million primarily due to higher development capital spend, which was partially offset by lower sustaining capital spend. Development capital expenditures in 2022 primarily include advancing Tanami Expansion 2, Yanacocha Sulfides, Ahafo North, Pamour and Cerro Negro District Expansion 1.

Consolidated operating cash flow from continuing operations decreased 18 percent from the prior year quarter to $689 million primarily due to lower gold sales volumes and an increase in accounts receivable related to timing of cash receipts. These decreases were partially offset by higher average realized metal prices. Free Cash Flow8 also decreased to $252 million primarily due to lower operating cash flow and higher development capital expenditures as described above.

Balance sheet and liquidity ended the quarter with $4.3 billion of consolidated cash and approximately $7.3 billion of liquidity; reported net debt to adjusted EBITDA of 0.3x9.

Nevada Gold Mines (NGM) attributable gold production was 288 thousand ounces, with CAS of $899 per ounce and AISC of $1,086 per ounce for the first quarter. NGM EBITDA10 was $278 million.

Pueblo Viejo (PV) attributable gold production was 69 thousand ounces for the quarter. Pueblo Viejo EBITDA10 was $80 million and cash distributions received for the Company's equity method investment totaled $49 million in the first quarter.

COVID UPDATE

Newmont continues to maintain wide-ranging protective measures for its workforce and neighboring communities, including screening, physical distancing, deep cleaning and avoiding exposure for at-risk individuals. The Company incurred incremental Covid specific costs of $17 million during the quarter for activities such as additional health and safety procedures, increased transportation and distributions from the Newmont Global Community Support Fund. The majority of the additional incremental Covid specific costs have not been adjusted from our non-GAAP metrics.

PROJECTS UPDATE11

Newmont’s project pipeline supports stable production with improving margins and mine life. Newmont's 2022 and longer-term outlook includes current development capital costs and production related to Tanami Expansion 2, Ahafo North, Yanacocha Sulfides, Pamour and Cerro Negro District Expansion 1. Additional projects not listed below represent incremental improvements to the Company's outlook.

  • Tanami Expansion 2 (Australia) secures Tanami’s future as a long-life, low-cost producer with potential to extend mine life beyond 2040 through the addition of a 1,460 meter hoisting shaft and supporting infrastructure to process 3.3 million tonnes per year and provide a platform for future growth. The expansion is expected to increase average annual gold production by approximately 150,000 to 200,000 ounces per year for the first five years and is expected to reduce operating costs by approximately 10 percent. Capital costs for the project are estimated to be between $850 and $950 million with a commercial production date in 2024. Development costs (excluding capitalized interest) since approval were $333 million, of which $49 million related to the first quarter of 2022.

  • Ahafo North (Africa) expands our existing footprint in Ghana with four open pit mines and a stand-alone mill located approximately 30 kilometers from the Company’s Ahafo South operations. The project is expected to add between 275,000 and 325,000 ounces per year with all-in sustaining costs between $600 to $700 per ounce for the first five full years of production (2024-2028). Capital costs for the project are estimated to be between $750 and $850 million with a construction completion date in late 2023 and commercial production in 2024. Ahafo North is the best unmined gold deposit in West Africa with approximately 3.5 million ounces of Reserves and more than 1 million ounces of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources and significant upside potential to extend beyond Ahafo North’s current 13-year mine life. Development costs (excluding capitalized interest) since approval were $95 million, of which $28 million related to the first quarter of 2022.

  • Yanacocha Sulfides12 (South America) will develop the first phase of sulfide deposits and an integrated processing circuit, including an autoclave to produce 45% gold, 45% copper and 10% silver. The project is expected to add average annual production of 525,000 gold equivalent ounces per year with all-in sustaining costs between $700 and $800 per ounce for the first five full years of production (2027-2031). Total capital costs for the project are estimated at $2.5 billion, with an investment decision expected in late 2022 and a three year development period. The first phase focuses on developing the Yanacocha Verde and Chaquicocha deposits to extend Yanacocha’s operations beyond 2040 with second and third phases having the potential to extend life for multiple decades.

  • Pamour (North America) extends the life of Porcupine and maintains production beginning in 2024. The project will optimize mill capacity, adding volume and supporting high grade ore from Borden and Hoyle Pond, while supporting further exploration in a highly prospective and proven mining district. An investment decision is expected in the second half of 2022 with estimated capital costs between $350 and $450 million.

  • Cerro Negro District Expansion 1 (South America) includes the simultaneous development of the Marianas and Eastern districts to extend the mine life of Cerro Negro beyond 2030. The project is expected to improve production to above 350,000 ounces beginning in 2024, while improving all-in sustaining costs to between $800 and $900 per ounce. Capital costs for the project are estimated to be approximately $300 million. This project provides a platform for further exploration and future growth through additional expansions.

OUTLOOK

Newmont’s outlook reflects increasing gold production and ongoing investment in its operating assets and most promising growth prospects. Outlook includes current development capital costs and production related to Tanami Expansion 2, Ahafo North, Yanacocha Sulfides, Pamour at Porcupine and Cerro Negro District Expansion 1.

Newmont continues to develop our mine plan utilizing a $1,200 per ounce gold price assumption. However, due to sustained higher gold prices over the last two years, Newmont’s 2022 outlook assumes an $1,800 per ounce revenue gold price for CAS and AISC to reflect higher costs from inflation, royalties and production taxes. In 2022, an additional 5% of cost escalation is incorporated into our direct operating costs related to labor, energy, and material and supplies. 2022 and longer-term outlook assumes a $30 per ounce impact from production taxes and royalties attributable to higher gold prices. Outlook assumes operations continue without major Covid-related interruptions. Newmont continues to maintain wide-ranging protective measures for its workforce and neighboring communities, including screening, physical distancing, deep cleaning and avoiding exposure for at-risk individuals, which are expected to impact AISC per gold equivalent ounce by approximately $10 per ounce. If at any point the Company determines that continuing operations poses an increased risk to our workforce or host communities, it will reduce operational activities up to, and including, care and maintenance and management of critical environmental systems. Please see the cautionary statement for additional information.

For a more detailed discussion and outlook presented at a $1,200 per ounce gold price assumption, see the Company’s 2022 and Longer-Term Outlook released on December 2, 2021, available on www.newmont.com. The attributable site-level production for Yanacocha and attributable development capital guidance below accounts for the acquisition of Buenaventura's 43.65% interest in Yanacocha, as announced on February 8, 2022. All other guidance metrics remain unchanged from the Company's 2022 and Longer-Term Outlook as announced on December 2, 2021.

a 2022 outlook projections are considered forward-looking statements and represent management’s good faith estimates or expectations of future production results as of December 2, 2021. Outlook is based upon certain assumptions, including, but not limited to, metal prices, oil prices, certain exchange rates and other assumptions. For example, 2022 Outlook assumes $1,800/oz Au, $3.25/lb Cu, $23.00/oz Ag, $1.15/lb Zn, $0.95/lb Pb, $0.75 USD/AUD exchange rate, $0.80 USD/CAD exchange rate and $60/barrel WTI. Production, CAS, AISC and capital estimates exclude projects that have not yet been approved, except for Yanacocha Sulfides, Pamour and Cerro Negro District Expansion 1 which are included in Outlook. The potential impact on inventory valuation as a result of lower prices, input costs, and project decisions are not included as part of this Outlook. Assumptions used for purposes of Outlook may prove to be incorrect and actual results may differ from those anticipated, including variation beyond a +/-5% range. Outlook cannot be guaranteed. As such, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance upon Outlook and forward-looking statements as there can be no assurance that the plans, assumptions or expectations upon which they are placed will occur. Amounts may not recalculate to totals due to rounding. The attributable production guidance accounts for the acquisition of Buenaventura's 43.65% interest in Yanacocha, as announced on February 8, 2022. All other guidance metrics remain unchanged from the Company's outlook as announced on December 2, 2021. See cautionary at the end of this release.
b All-in sustaining costs (AISC) as used in the Company’s Outlook is a non-GAAP metric; see below for further information and reconciliation to consolidated 2022 CAS outlook.
c Consolidated production for Yanacocha and Merian is presented on a total production basis for the mine site; attributable production represents a 95% interest for Yanacocha and a 75% interest for Merian.

d Attributable production includes Newmont’s 40% interest in Pueblo Viejo, which is accounted for as an equity method investment.
e Represents the ownership interest in the Nevada Gold Mines (NGM) joint venture. NGM is owned 38.5% by Newmont and owned 61.5% and operated by Barrick. 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.
f Gold equivalent ounces (GEO) are calculated as pounds or ounces produced multiplied by the ratio of the other metal’s price to the gold price, using Gold ($1,200/oz.), Copper ($3.25/lb.), Silver ($23.00/oz.), Lead ($0.95/lb.), and Zinc ($1.15/lb.) pricing.
