Newmont’s Industry Leadership
Newmont, a leading US-based gold mining company, has significantly expanded its market dominance with the acquisition of Australia’s Newcrest Mining. In 2023, Newmont’s gold production, including by-products like silver and copper (equivalent to around 740,000 ounces of gold), reached an impressive 6.21 million ounces. This output places Newmont at the top of the gold mining industry, surpassing its closest competitor, Barrick Gold, which produced 5.01 million ounces.
Projected Growth and Cost Savings
Looking ahead to 2024 and beyond, Newmont’s production is projected to rise dramatically, incorporating Newcrest mines’ output. The anticipated production is expected to hit 9.6 million ounces in 2024 and potentially exceed ten million ounces by 2025. The merger is also predicted to bring about a reduction in operating and total costs by over ten percent, owing to synergies and cost-saving measures.
