  21. 21. Barrick Gold CorporationSWOT AnalysisSWOT ANALYSISBarrick is one of the largest gold mining companies globally, having a portfolio of 26 operating minesand advanced exploration and development projects located across five continents. The companysstrong market position reflects an efficient cost structure. However, strong competition could erodethe company’s market share. Strengths Weaknesses Strong market position Litigations and claims Effective allocation of resources Opportunities Threats Poised to benefit from the acquisition of Strong competition Equinox Minerals Risk from foreign investments and Increasing gold prices operations Growing demand for gold Environmental laws and regulationsStrengthsStrong market positionBarrick is the gold industry leader, with a portfolio of 26 operating mines and advanced explorationand development projects located across five continents, and large land positions on some of theworld’s most prolific and prospective mineral trends. The company also has the largest reserves inthe gold industry, with about 139.9 million ounces of proven and probable gold reserves. In addition,Barrick has 12.7 billion pounds of proven and probable copper reserves and 1.2 billion ounces ofsilver contained within gold reserves, as of December, 2011.Barrick is the only company in the gold mining industry that possesses an "A" rating balance sheetwhich vindicates its conservative but effective financial policy and cost profile, strong pipeline ofdevelopment projects, solid reserve base, and a low overall geopolitical risk. A strong balance sheetgives the company the flexibility it needs to develop new projects and push others into production,finance its exploration programs, and support corporate development initiatives, such as acquisitions,as and when the opportunities emerge. A strong market status reflects the companys strengtheningmarket position with efficient cost structure.Effective allocation of resourcesBarrick Gold Corporation Page 21© MarketLine
  22. 22. Barrick Gold CorporationSWOT AnalysisThe company has high return on equity (ROE) and return on assets (ROA) compared to its peercompanies. The companys competitors such as Kinross Gold have a lower ROE when comparedto Barrick. In FY2011, Kinross Golds ROE was -16.6% In contrast, Barricks ROE was 17.5% inFY2011. Higher ROE compared to its peers indicates that the company is using the shareholdersmoney efficiently and that it is generating high returns for its shareholders.Moreover, Kinross Gold also has less ROA when compared to Barrick. In FY2011, Kinross GoldsROA was -12.6% significantly less than Barrick. In contrast, the ROA of Barrick was 9.2% in FY2011.High ROA indicates that the company has been deploying its assets in an efficient manner andindicates the efficient management of the company towards allocation of resources compared to itspeer companies.WeaknessesLitigations and claimsThe company has a number of lawsuits pending against it. For instance, in 2008, the TeMoakShoshone Tribe, the East Fork Band Council of the TeMoak Shoshone Tribe and the TimbishaShoshone Tribe, the Western Shoshone Defense Project, and Great Basin Resource Watch filed alawsuit against the US seeking to enjoin the majority of the activities comprising the Cortez Hillsproject on grounds that it violated the Western Shoshone rights under the Religious FreedomRestoration Act (RFRA). The lawsuit also claimed that the project violated the Federal Land Policyand Management Acts (FLPMA) prohibition on “unnecessary and undue degradation”, and that theprojects environment impact statement did not meet the requirements of the National EnvironmentalPolicy Act (NEPA). On January 2012, the court issued a decision granting summary judgment infavor of Barrick and the BLM on all remaining issues. The plaintiffs have appealed this decision tothe US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.Similarly, in April 2010, the company’s subsidiary Pueblo Viejo Dominicana received a copy of anaction filed in the Dominican Republic by Fundacion Amigo de Maimon, Fundacion Miguel, PenaGarcia, and a number of individuals. The action alleged several matters couched as violations offundamental rights, including taking of private property, violations of mining and environmental andother laws, slavery, human trafficking, and bribery of government officials. In addition, Barrick isinvolved in other legal proceedings. Although, the company maintains reserves to cover the costsfor claims and lawsuits, such litigations would impact the companys brand image and reputation.OpportunitiesPoised to benefit from the acquisition of Equinox MineralsThe company is continuously focused on strengthening its position through strategic acquisition. Inthis view, in July 2011, Barrick acquired a 98% stake in Equinox Minerals, a Canadian miningBarrick Gold Corporation Page 22© MarketLine
  23. 23. Barrick Gold CorporationSWOT Analysiscompany. The acquisition would add a high-quality, long-life asset to the company’s portfolio and isconsistent with its strategy of increasing gold and copper reserves through exploration andacquisitions. It would add 5.7 billion pounds of copper reserves, including 4.5 billion pounds of copperreserves at Lumwana and 1.2 billion pounds of copper reserves at Jabal Sayid, plus an additional5.5 billion pounds of inferred copper resources at Lumwana. Combined with Barrick’s Zaldivar mineand Cerro Casale project in Chile, this acquisition would position the company with significantproduction growth potential in two of the most prolific copper-producing regions of the world.Increasing gold pricesAverage gold prices in all major markets across the world have been increasing since 2007. Thegold prices have grown at a compound annual growth rate of 17% during 2008–12.The gold pricein October 2012 was $1,746.58 per troy ounce, as compared to $806.62 per troy ounce in October2008. In addition, the price of gold has increased by 5% in the last one year. Growing investmentdemand, economic uncertainty, and a weak US Dollar are continuing to support gold prices.Barrick generates a significant part of its revenues and earnings from gold sales. Favorable pricingenvironment would benefit the companys financial performance in the short term.Growing demand for goldAccording to Informa, the global gold market grew by 31.4% in 2011 to reach a value of $110,099.2million and a volume of 2,011.3 thousand metric tons. In 2016, the global gold market is forecastedto have a value of $169,655.4 million, an increase of 54.1% since 2011 and a volume of 2,488.3thousand metric tons, an increase of 23.7% since 2011. Barrick Gold is the leading player in theglobal gold market, generating a 13.5% share of the markets volume. Thus, Barrick can takeadvantage of this growing demand and increase its revenue and future growth.ThreatsStrong competitionThe company faces a strong competition in the industry in which it operates. Barrick competes withother mining companies and individuals for mining claims and leases on exploration properties andthe acquisition of mining assets. In addition, the company competes with other mining companiesto attract and retain key executives and employees. Barrick’s key competitors include NewmontMining, Rio Tinto, Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold, AngloGold Ashanti, DRDGOLD, Gold Fields,Harmony Gold Mining Company, Lihir Gold, BHP Billiton, Xstrata, Agnico-Eagle Mines, Goldcorp,Kinross Gold, New Gold, NovaGold Resources, Silver Wheaton, and Yamana Gold. This competitionmay increase the company’s cost of acquiring suitable claims, properties, and assets, should theybecome available to it. Such strong competition could impact the company’s market share.Risk from foreign investments and operationsBarrick Gold Corporation Page 23© MarketLine
  24. 24. Barrick Gold CorporationSWOT AnalysisBarrick conducts mining, development, and exploration activities in many countries, including theUS, Canada, Australia, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Dominican Republic, Papua New Guinea, Pakistan,and Tanzania. Mining investments are subject to the risks normally associated with any conduct ofbusiness in foreign countries including: uncertain political and economic environments; war, terrorism,and civil disturbances; changes in laws or policies of particular countries; royalty and tax increasesor other claims by government entities; risk of expropriation and nationalization; delays in obtainingor the inability to obtain or maintain necessary governmental permits; and other similar factors.These risks may limit or disrupt operating mines or projects, restrict the movement of funds, causethe company to expend more funds than previously expected or required, or result in the deprivationof contract rights, or the taking of property by nationalization or expropriation without faircompensation. This may materially adversely impact Barrick’s financial position or results ofoperations. Furthermore, in the event of a dispute arising from the company’s activities in Argentina,Chile, Peru, Dominican Republic, Papua New Guinea, Pakistan, or Tanzania, the company may besubject to the exclusive jurisdiction of courts outside North America and Australia, which couldadversely impact the outcome of the dispute.Environmental laws and regulationsBarricks ongoing mining operations and exploration activities are subject to extensive laws andregulations governing the protection of the environment, waste disposal, worker safety, minedevelopment, and protection of endangered and other special status species. In addition, thecompanys ability to successfully obtain key permits and approvals to explore for, develop, andoperate mines and to successfully operate in communities around the world would depend on itsability to develop, operate, and close mines in a manner that is consistent with the creation of socialand economic benefits in the surrounding communities. Barricks ability to obtain permits andapprovals and to successfully operate in particular communities may be adversely impacted by realor perceived detrimental events associated with Barricks activities or those of other mining companiesimpacting the environment, human health and safety, or the surrounding communities.Delays in obtaining or failure to obtain government permits and approvals may adversely influenceBarricks operations, including its ability to explore or develop properties, commence production, orcontinue operations. The company has made, and expects to make in the future, significantexpenditures to comply with such laws and regulations and, to the extent reasonably practicable,create social and economic benefit in the surrounding communities. Future changes in applicablelaws, regulations, and permits, or changes in their enforcement or regulatory interpretation, couldhave an adverse impact on Barricks financial condition or results of operations.Barrick Gold Corporation Page 24© MarketLine

  26. 26. Barrick Gold CorporationCompany ViewCOMPANY VIEWA statement by Aaron Regent, former President and Chief Executive Officer at Barrick, is givenbelow. The statement has been taken from the company’s FY2011 annual report.During a year of increased market volatility and persistent concerns about the fiscal and economicchallenges that lay ahead of us, gold continued to broaden its appeal as a means to preserve andgrow wealth. The metal continued to perform well, setting a new record, underpinned by stronginvestment demand in traditional markets, surging demand from emerging economies and acceleratingcentral bank purchases.We continue to have a positive outlook on the gold price because the underlying factors drivingdemand for the metal are structural and long-term in nature. A stubbornly sluggish economic recoveryin the United States has led to a period of prolonged monetary and fiscal stimulus, with interest ratesexpected to remain at historically low levels for the foreseeable future. In Europe, sovereign debtconcerns have put further downward pressure on the Euro currency, while austerity measuresthreaten to slow economic growth. Meanwhile, in emerging markets, the threat of rising inflationpersists.In addition to strong demand, we believe that supply is likely to remain constrained over the longterm, which should further support gold prices. Despite a decade of rising gold prices, the gold miningindustry has struggled to increase supply as new deposits remain scarce and the permitting andconstruction environment becomes increasingly complex.Copper has also performed well, even in the face of continuing uncertainty about the direction ofthe global economy. Although prices have been volatile, copper has remained at elevated levels,with demand underpinned by strong growth in emerging markets, as these countries, particularlyChina, industrialize and urbanize. New supply continues to be limited due to many of the samefactors affecting gold: production disruptions, low discovery rates and increased hurdles to put newresources into production. This has resulted in a solid underpinning for copper prices, which isexpected to continue for the foreseeable future.Taken all together, we believe the fundamentals supporting gold and copper prices are positive andour focus remains on positioning Barrick to be a prime beneficiary of rising prices over the long term.Barrick’s production will continue to be dominated by gold, complemented by growing copperproduction from existing mines and projects.Our strategy to create value for Barrick shareholders is focused on five key areas:  maximizing the benefits of rising metal prices by meeting operational and financial targets;  increasing gold and copper reserves and production through exploration and selective acquisitions;Barrick Gold Corporation Page 26© MarketLine
  27. 27. Barrick Gold CorporationCompany View  maximizing the value of our existing mines and properties by leveraging Barrick’s expertise andregional infrastructure;  growing production by investing in and developing high return projects; and  continuing to improve corporate social responsibility practices to maintain and strengthen our licenseto operate.By executing on this strategy, we expect to increase earnings and cash flow on a per share basisand enhance our shareholders’ leverage to metal prices.In 2011, the Company performed well against this strategy. Barrick met its operating guidance forthe ninth consecutive year, producing 7.7 million ounces of gold at total cash costs of $460 perounce, positioning Barrick as one of the lowest cost senior gold producers. Copper productionincreased by 23% to 451 million pounds at total cash costs of $1.75 per pound, reflecting six monthsof production from the Lumwana mine in Zambia. Adjusted net earnings increased by 33% to arecord $4.7 billion while adjusted operating cash flow increased by 8% to $5.7 billion, also a Companyrecord. Total gold cash margins grew substantially, rising by 37% to nearly $1,120 per ounce,compared to a cost increase of 12% over the same period.Capturing the benefits of margin expansion and strong operating results, Barrick achieved a returnon equity of 22% in 2011. Strong financial results also allowed us to raise our quarterly dividend by25%. In fact, the Company has increased its dividend by 170% over the past five years, maintainingour track record of paying a progressive dividend.These results also underscore the leverage to gold that Barrick offers its shareholders. Since theintroduction of the largest gold exchange traded fund seven years ago, gold prices have risen byaround 260%. Over the same period, Barrick’s earnings per share have grown by nearly 900%1,while operating cash flows per share have risen about 500%1.In 2011, we successfully replaced our gold reserves, which now stand at 140 million ounces, withan additional 80 million ounces in measured and indicated gold resources. Barrick also has 1.1 billionounces of silver contained within gold reserves.We significantly increased copper reserves and resources through the acquisition of Equinox Minerals,complementing our existing copper business. Copper reserves nearly doubled from 6.5 billion poundsto almost 13 billion pounds, measured and indicated copper resources rose 17% to 15 billion poundsand inferred resources increased 117% to 20 billion pounds. Looking ahead, we see significantpotential to grow copper reserves and resources at the Lumwana mine in Zambia, which is locatedin one of the most prolific copper regions of the world, and at the Jabal Sayid project in Saudi Arabia.Indeed, our investments in exploration are yielding excellent results. In September, we announcedtwo major new gold discoveries, Red Hill and Goldrush, just six kilometers away from our world-classCortez mine in Nevada. Mineralization at both Red Hill and Goldrush remains open in all directions,Barrick Gold Corporation Page 27© MarketLine
  28. 28. Barrick Gold CorporationCompany Viewand drilling results indicate the two deposits are part of one large mineralized system. It is still earlydays, but results continue to suggest a high likelihood of major resource expansion.The quality of our portfolio and the Company’s ability to add additional value is another key driverof Barrick’s success. When you consider the assets we have acquired from other companies, Barrickhas consistently added substantial value, in many cases doubling or even tripling the known reservesand resources.We have also used our technical expertise and the deepest talent pool in the gold industry to growthe value of our projects, improving designs and anticipated recovery rates to improve overallshareholder returns. In 2011, we made significant progress on two longlife, low cost projects. OurPueblo Viejo project is expected to begin production in 2012, with Barrick’s share of average annualproduction expected to be 625,000 – 675,000 ounces of gold at total cash costs of $300 – $350 perounce in its first full five years of operation. Based on a $1,600 gold price, Pueblo Viejo is expectedto generate around $800 million in average annual EBITDA for Barrick over the same period.Similarly, we continue to make progress on our Pascua-Lama project on the border of Chile andArgentina. Once in production, Pascua-Lama will be one of the lowest cost gold mines in the world.This project is expected to begin producing in 2013, with average annual gold production of 800,000– 850,000 ounces at negative total cash costs of $225 – $275 per ounce, assuming a $25 silverprice, in its first full five years of operation. Based on a $1,600 gold price and a $30 silver price, thismine is expected to generate approximately $1.65 billion in average annual EBITDA for Barrick overthis same period. “Capturing the benefits of margin expansion and strong operating results, Barrickachieved a return on equity of 22% in 2011.”Once Pueblo Viejo and Pascua-Lama are in production, these two mines are expected to have asignificant positive impact on Barrick’s overall production and cash cost profile.In 2011, we also advanced the Jabal Sayid project in Saudi Arabia, expected to enter production inthe second half of 2012 with average annual production of 100 – 130 million pounds of copper attotal cash costs of $1.50 – $1.70 per pound in its first full five years of operation.Looking further ahead, Barrick has a deep pipeline of next generation projects that offer significantdevelopment options for the future. Most importantly the Company has demonstrated its ability tosuccessfully convert its reserves and resources into world-class, producing mines.That expertise will serve our shareholders well, as we expect to increase gold, silver and copperproduction across the board. Barrick is targeting annual production of 9 million ounces of gold by2016, along with a significant increase in silver production, from about 3 million ounces in 2011 tonearly 50 million ounces by 2016. Barrick’s copper production also has the potential to more thandouble by 2017, increasing to about 1 billion pounds.During the year, we also strengthened the Company’s social and environmental performance, aswell as our human rights governance framework. Ongoing challenges with respect to security andhuman rights at the Porgera Joint Venture and the North Mara operation underscored the criticalBarrick Gold Corporation Page 28© MarketLine
  29. 29. Barrick Gold CorporationCompany Viewimportance of ensuring our practices on the ground live up to our policy commitments. Barrick wasthe first Canadian mining company to formally join the Voluntary Principles on Security and HumanRights, a leading international forum for governments, private business and non-governmentalorganizations who share a public commitment to uphold human rights. In 2011, we also laid thegroundwork for the Company’s new Corporate Social Responsibility Advisory Board, which will holdits first meeting in 2012. This Board, made up of highly distinguished, leading international experts,will provide advice and guidance on challenging social and environmental issues and encouragefurther innovation and leadership.Overall, the Company continues to demonstrate a strong track record of social and environmentalperformance. This is reflected by our listing on the world-leading Dow Jones Sustainability Index forthe fourth consecutive year, as well as our inclusion on the NASDAQ Global Sustainability Index,which tracks the world’s top 100 companies in this area.In conclusion, we expect gold and copper prices will be well supported over the long term, underpinnedby strong supply and demand fundamentals. With competitive operating costs and the industry’slargest gold production and reserves, and sizable copper production and reserves, Barrick is wellpositioned to be a major beneficiary of rising metal prices. This is reflected by the Company’sexpanding margins and record earnings, which has allowed us to consistently increase our dividend.Looking ahead, we have a growing production base with two world-class projects nearing production,and a deep project pipeline, which provides us with future investment options. The success and theprogress that we have achieved is a result of the efforts of the 25,000 people who work for thisCompany and I want to thank them for what they do for us every day. We truly believe Barrick is asymbol of value, and we intend to continue working every day to realize that value for ourshareholders.Barrick Gold Corporation Page 29© MarketLine
