Newmont Signs Letter Of Intent To Sell Midas Operation In Nevada To Waterton Global

Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE:NEM) (“Newmont” or “the Company”) today announced the signing of a Letter of Intent (“LOI”) to sell Newmont’s Midas operation in Nevada to Waterton Global Resource Management, Inc. (“Waterton”). The proposed transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including execution and delivery of an acquisition agreement, completion of confirmatory due diligence and receipt of all required regulatory and third party approvals.

“Consistent with our strategy to deliver value to our shareholders and strengthen our portfolio by divesting non-core assets, we are working with Waterton to explore the sale of our Midas operation in Nevada,” said Randy Engel, Executive Vice President, Strategic Development of Newmont. “Waterton has established a presence in Nevada and is well positioned to enable Midas’s success over the long term by using its processing, and other assets, to support Waterton’s operations in Nevada.”

Mr. Isser Elishis, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer of Waterton stated, "We are very excited to be working with Newmont to develop the full potential of both the Midas and Hollister operations. The completion of our acquisition of the Midas Operation will add another high-quality gold mining operation to our portfolio of North American operations.”

The parties have agreed that the LOI will terminate on October 14, 2013, unless extended by mutual agreement of both parties, or earlier superseded by the acquisition agreement. There can be no assurance that the proposed transaction will be completed.
