The Gold Quarry operation is part of Newmont Mining Corporation’s (“Newmont”) Carlin operations in north-central Nevada. It is a large open-pit mine that has been in production since 1985 supplying ore as part of an integrated mining and processing complex with different mines supplying variable ore types and grades to a variety of processing facilities situated throughout the complex. Newmont has significant milling and roasting processing infrastructure immediately east of the Gold Quarry pit. Newmont currently reports Mineral Reserves and production numbers by area and does not publicly quote separate Gold Quarry numbers.
