_______________

(1)

Includes an early tender payment of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes of each series validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for purchase pursuant to the applicable Tender Offer.

(2)

Per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes of such applicable series validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for purchase pursuant to the applicable Tender Offer.

In addition to the applicable Total Consideration for each series of Notes, holders who have validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) their Notes at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 17, 2020 (the “Early Tender Deadline”) and whose Notes were accepted for purchase pursuant to the applicable Tender Offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes accepted for purchase pursuant to the applicable Tender Offer from and including the most recent interest payment date to but excluding the early settlement date, which is currently expected to be March 19, 2020.

Although the Tender Offer for the Newmont 2023 Notes is scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on March 31, 2020, because, as of the Early Tender Deadline, holders of the Newmont 2023 Notes have validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) Notes of such series in an amount that exceeds the amended Maximum Principal Tender Amount for the Newmont 2023 Notes, Newmont does not expect to accept for purchase tenders of the Newmont 2023 Notes following the Early Tender Deadline. The Newmont 2023 Notes that have been validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline will be subject to proration as set forth in the Offer to Purchase. Any Newmont 2023 Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and not accepted for purchase pursuant to the applicable Tender Offer or tendered following the Early Tender Deadline will be promptly credited to the account of the registered holder of such Newmont 2023 Notes maintained at The Depositary Trust Company and otherwise returned in accordance with the terms of the Offer to Purchase.

Holders of the Newmont 2022 Notes and the Goldcorp 2023 Notes who validly tender their Newmont 2022 Notes or Goldcorp 2023 Notes, as the case may be, after the Early Tender Deadline, but on or prior to the Expiration Date, will be eligible to receive the “Tender Offer Consideration” for such series of Notes, which is an amount equal to the applicable Total Consideration less the applicable Early Tender Payment.

Where a forward-looking statement 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 events or results to differ materially from future events or results expressed, projected or implied by the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements often address Newmont’s expected future business, financial performance and financial condition and often contain words such as “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “will,” “would,” “estimate,” “expect,” “believe,” “target,” “indicative,” “preliminary” or “potential.” Such forward-looking statements may include, without limitation, statements regarding expected closing date for an offering of Newmont’s debt securities and the use of proceeds from such offering. Estimates or expectations of future events or results are based upon certain assumptions, which may prove to be incorrect. Such assumptions include, without limitation: (i) there being no significant change to current geotechnical, metallurgical, hydrological and other physical conditions; (ii) permitting, development, operations and expansion of 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 Newmont operates being consistent with its current expectations; (iv) certain exchange rate assumptions being approximately consistent with current levels; (v) certain price assumptions for gold, copper, silver, zinc, lead and oil; (vi) prices for key supplies being approximately consistent with current levels; (vii) the accuracy of current mineral reserve and mineralized material estimates; (viii) other planning assumptions; and (ix) the timely satisfaction of closing conditions and receipt of approvals in connection with pending divestitures. For a more detailed discussion of risks and other factors that might impact future looking statements, see Newmont’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), under the heading “Risk Factors” available on the SEC website or www.newmont.com.
