Newmont Mining CEO Gary Goldberg has warned that an increase in Western Australia’s gold royalty would reduce the value of the Super Pit gold mine. Lack of consensus over the valuation of the mine has stalled negotiations for Newmont to buy Barrick Gold’s 50 per cent stake in the mine. Barrick president Kelvin Dushnisky says his company is willing to sell its stake at the right price. Newmont estimates that the royalty increase could increase its operating costs by about $US15m a year.
