Newmont Goldcorp Safely Ramping Up Operations at Peñasquito Mine in Mexico

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$NEMNewmont
Goldcorp Corporation
(NYSE: NEM, TSX: NGT) (Newmont Goldcorp or the
Company) is safely ramping up operations at the Peñasquito mine in
Mexico following the lifting of an illegal blockade and the
establishment of a dialogue process sponsored by the national government.

Concentrate shipments from the mine, as well as the delivery of supplies
to the site, have resumed and workers are going through orientation
sessions to ensure production begins in a safe and orderly manner.
During the temporary suspension of operations, which began on April 29,
the mine used the downtime to bring forward maintenance on a variety of
systems and equipment.

Newmont Goldcorp is committed to good-faith dialogue with the trucking
company and the San Juan de Cedros community (one of 25 neighboring
communities) to achieve a fair and enduring resolution to contract and
water availability issues.

The Peñasquito mine produced 272,000 ounces of gold in 2018 and directly
employs more than 6,000 people while supporting another 20,000 indirect
jobs in the region. Peñasquito has enhanced water availability to
neighboring communities through a number of projects including water
treatment plants, new wells, pipelines and water trucks.
