    Barrick CEO Says Cuts to Take Miner Beyond Thornton’s Path

    “John really drove this business on multiple fronts, but his primary focus was the debt,” Barrick CEO Bristow said Wednesday in an interview at Bloomberg’s Toronto office, referring to the miner’s executive chairman, John Thornton. Last year, Barrick backed away from a goal, announced in 2016, of reducing all-in sustaining costs to $700 an ounce, citing inflation and falling production as headwinds. Now that Barrick has completed its $5.4 billion merger with Randgold Resources Ltd., Bristow said there is “every indication” that the new company’s costs can move toward that goal.

    , the world’s largest gold miner, said it made a net loss of $1.2bn in the fourth quarter of 2018 before its merger with London rival Randgold Resources. The Canadian miner said the loss was due to a $900m impairment charge relating to its Veladero and Lagunas Norte mines in South America, as well as reduced gold output at Acacia Mining, which remains locked in a dispute with the government of Tanzania. The results highlight some of the motivation behind the merger with Randgold, which was orchestrated by Barrick’s executive chairman John Thornton.

    Acacia Mining beat forecasts on Monday with figures for its production and costs in 2018 that lifted the gold miner back into profit, but the company is still grappling with a long-running tax dispute in Tanzania where it operates all its mines. Shares in Acacia, majority owned by Barrick Gold Corp , were steady while the rest of the market rose, finding little impetus despite reporting gold output of 521,980 ounces at a cost of $905 per ounce. "Financials for Acacia remain somewhat of a sideshow due to the ongoing negotiations between parent Barrick and the government of Tanzania," said RBC analyst James Bell.
