CALCULATION OF FILING FEE

Pursuant to Rule 0-11(c) under the Exchange Act, the filing fee represents
one-50th of one percent of the maximum aggregate value of the transactions. The
value of the transactions is calculated as the sum of (A) US$2,501,479,766,
calculated as the product of (i) 129,208,666 shares of Newmont common stock
issuable upon completion of the arrangement to exchange each common share of
Franco-Nevada Mining Corporation Limited for 0.8 of a share of Newmont common
stock and (ii) US$19.36, calculated as the average of the high and low sale
prices per share of Newmont common stock as reported on the NYSE Composite
Transactions reporting system on December 20, 2001 and (B) US$1,712,811,169,
calculated as the sum of (i) US$1,347,769,283, calculated as the product of (x)
69,616,180 shares of Newmont common stock issuable upon completion of the
exchange offer (the "Normandy Offer") to acquire all of the ordinary shares and
American depositary shares (each American depositary share representing ten
ordinary shares) of Normandy Mining Limited held by persons other than
Franco-Nevada Mining Corporation Limited and its subsidiaries for 0.0385 of a
share of Newmont common stock and (y) US$19.36, calculated as above, and (ii)
$365,041,931, calculated as the product of (x) 1,808,212,458 ordinary shares of
Normandy Mining Limited held by persons other than Franco-Nevada and its
subsidiaries and (y) AU$0.40 (converted into US$0.20188 at the noon buying rate
for the Australian dollar on December 21, 2001 of US$1.00=A$1.9814, as reported
by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York) per share in cash payable upon

To Our Stockholders:

   You are cordially invited to attend a special meeting of stockholders of
Newmont Mining Corporation, to be held on  . , February  . , 2002, at  . ,
local time, at  . , Denver, Colorado. The special meeting is being called in
connection with our proposed acquisitions of Normandy Mining Limited, an
Australian company, and Franco-Nevada Mining Corporation Limited, a Canadian
corporation.

   We are very excited about these transactions which, if successful, will
result in Newmont becoming the premier global gold company. With the
acquisition of Normandy and Franco-Nevada, we believe that Newmont will be the
leading gold investment vehicle, founded on a belief in gold's intrinsic
long-term value and its relevance to a balanced portfolio.

   At the special meeting, you will be asked to consider four proposals
relating to the proposed transactions. The first proposal will permit a
restructuring of Newmont to put in place a new holding company pursuant to a
merger agreement between Newmont and two of its subsidiaries. If the
restructuring is implemented, your shares in Newmont will be exchanged for
shares in the new holding company, which will then be renamed Newmont Mining
Corporation. Your shares of Newmont are listed for trading on the New York
Stock Exchange under the symbol "NEM" and will continue to be so listed if the
holding company structure is implemented. The proposed restructuring and the
holding company structure are all described in greater detail in the
accompanying proxy statement/prospectus.

   The second proposal to be presented at the meeting will be to increase the
number of Newmont's authorized shares of common stock so that there will be a
sufficient number to implement the proposed acquisitions as well as for other
corporate purposes. This amendment to Newmont's certificate of incorporation is
required only if a decision is made not to implement the holding company
restructuring. The third proposal to be presented will be to approve the
issuance of the shares in the Normandy and Franco-Nevada acquisitions as
required by New York Stock Exchange rules. The final proposal is to permit
adjournment of the special meeting, if there are not sufficient votes to
approve the proposals to be presented at the special meeting.

   Your board of directors has determined that the merger agreement, the
proposed amendment to Newmont's restated certificate of incorporation, the
issuance of shares and the proposed transactions with Normandy and
Franco-Nevada are fair to and in the best interests of Newmont and its
stockholders, and has declared them advisable. Your board of directors has
approved the merger agreement, the proposed amendment to Newmont's restated
certificate of incorporation and the issuance of shares. YOUR BOARD OF
DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE FOR THE ADOPTION OF THE MERGER
AGREEMENT, FOR THE AMENDMENT TO NEWMONT'S RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF
INCORPORATION, FOR THE ISSUANCE OF SHARES OF THE HOLDING COMPANY'S COMMON STOCK
OR NEWMONT COMMON STOCK AND FOR THE ADJOURNMENT PROPOSAL.

   The accompanying notice of special meeting and proxy statement/prospectus
provide detailed information explaining the proposed transactions, including
the holding company restructuring and our proposed acquisition of Normandy and
Franco-Nevada, and provide specific information concerning the special meeting.
We encourage you to read these materials carefully and in their entirety. YOU
SHOULD ALSO CAREFULLY CONSIDER THE RISK FACTORS DESCRIBED BEGINNING ON PAGE 19.



   Whether or not you plan to attend the special meeting, please sign and
return your proxy as soon as possible in the enclosed self-addressed envelope
so that your vote will be recorded. You can also vote your shares of Newmont

A: In the proposal transactions, we intend to acquire both Normandy and
   Franco-Nevada to create the world's largest gold producer. It is also
   possible that we will acquire less than all of the shares of Normandy,
   either together with or separately from an acquisition of Franco-Nevada. We
   refer to the combined company that will result from the transactions as "New
   Newmont."

   To acquire Normandy, we are making an off-market bid for all of the
   outstanding ordinary shares in the capital of Normandy in exchange for 3.85
   shares of Newmont common stock plus A$40.00 for every 100 Normandy shares.
   To acquire Franco-Nevada, we have entered into an arrangement agreement with
   Franco-Nevada, pursuant to which we intend to acquire all of the shares of
   Franco-Nevada for 0.8 of a share of Newmont common stock (or exchangeable
   shares, exchangeable for our common stock) for each Franco-Nevada common
   share.

   OUR BID FOR NORMANDY IS NOT CONDITIONED ON COMPLETION OF THE FRANCO-NEVADA
   TRANSACTION. However, completion of the Franco-Nevada transaction is
   conditioned on, among other things, Newmont and its associates achieving a
   relevant interest in at least 50.1% of the ordinary shares in the capital of
   Normandy, calculated on a fully diluted basis.

Q: WHAT IS THE "RESTRUCTURING" OF NEWMONT THAT IS BEING PROPOSED?

A: In connection with the transactions, Newmont intends to merge with its
   indirect, wholly owned subsidiary, Delta Acquisitionco Corp.
   ("Acquisitionco"), with Newmont continuing as the surviving corporation in
   the merger. Shares of Newmont common stock will be exchanged for shares of
   common stock of Delta Holdco Corp. ("Holdco"), a direct, wholly owned
   subsidiary of Newmont. In connection with the merger, Holdco would be
   renamed "Newmont Mining Corporation." If the merger is completed,
   stockholders of Normandy and Franco-Nevada also would receive shares of the
   new Newmont Mining Corporation in the transactions described above. THIS
   MERGER IS NOT A PREREQUISITE TO THE TRANSACTIONS. IT IS DESIGNED TO
   FACILITATE THE ACQUISITIONS OF NORMANDY AND FRANCO-NEVADA AND TO CREATE A
   FLEXIBLE CORPORATE STRUCTURE FOR THE COMBINED GROUP.

   It is possible that we may complete the acquisitions of Normandy and
   Franco-Nevada without completing the merger. See "The
   Transactions--Overview" on page 32.

Q: WHY DOES NEWMONT WANT TO ACQUIRE CONTROL OF NORMANDY AND FRANCO-NEVADA?

A: We believe that the acquisition of Normandy and Franco-Nevada will provide
   us with a number of benefits and allow us to pursue our strategy to deliver
   superior stockholder value, including:

    .  potential cost savings and synergies;

    .  exploration and development;

    .  scale and balanced political risk profile;

    .  financial strength and flexibility;

    .  leverage to gold price;

    .  superior management;

    .  growth; and

    .  market liquidity.

   See "The Transactions--Reasons for the Transactions" on page 39.

Q: WOULD THE FAILURE TO ACQUIRE FRANCO-NEVADA PREVENT NEWMONT FROM ACHIEVING
   THESE BENEFITS?

A: If we do not acquire Franco-Nevada the expected benefits of the transactions
   and their magnitude will be reduced; however, there would still be benefits
   realized from a combination of Newmont and Normandy.

   See "The Transactions--Reasons for the Transactions" on page 39.


                                      1



Q: WHAT WILL NEW NEWMONT LOOK LIKE FOLLOWING THE TRANSACTIONS?

A: If the transactions are consummated in their entirety, New Newmont will
   become the world's leading gold company in terms of gold reserves, gold
   production and leverage to gold and will derive more than 70% of its
   production from politically and economically stable locations. The
   combination of Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada will create one of the
   financially strongest companies in the gold industry. The transactions will
   strengthen our balance sheet and decrease our net debt to net book
   capitalization (after transaction costs) from 41% to 23%.

   Although we currently expect to consummate both transactions, there is a
   possibility that we will acquire Normandy while being unable to acquire
   Franco-Nevada. If we only acquire Normandy, New Newmont would still be the
   world's leading gold company in terms of reserves, gold production and
   leverage to gold and would still derive approximately 70% of its production
   from politically stable locations. However, our debt to net book
   capitalization (after transaction costs) would be approximately 39%.

Q: WHEN DO YOU EXPECT TO COMPLETE THE TRANSACTIONS?

A: We expect to complete the transactions as quickly as possible once all the
   conditions to the transactions, including obtaining the necessary
   stockholder approvals, are fulfilled. Fulfilling some of these conditions,
   such as receiving certain governmental clearances or approvals, is not
   entirely within our control. We currently expect to complete the
   transactions before the end of February, 2002.

Q: AFTER THE RESTRUCTURING AND THE TRANSACTIONS, WHAT WILL THE COMPANY BE
   CALLED AND WHERE WILL IT BE HEADQUARTERED?

A: We will retain the name "Newmont Mining Corporation" after the
   restructuring. Our corporate headquarters will remain in Denver, Colorado.

Q: WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO SHARES OF NEWMONT COMMON STOCK IN THE MERGER?

A: Holders of Newmont common stock will receive one share of Holdco common
   stock for each share of Newmont common stock that they own.

Q: WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO SHARES OF $3.25 CONVERTIBLE PREFERRED STOCK IN THE
   MERGER?

A: If we complete the merger, pursuant to the merger agreement, we have the
   option either to leave outstanding our $3.25 convertible preferred stock or
   exchange the outstanding shares of our $3.25 convertible preferred stock for
   shares of Holdco $3.25 convertible preferred stock. In either case, holders
   of convertible preferred stock after the merger will be entitled to vote
   together with the holders of common stock on all matters relating to Newmont
   (if we choose to leave outstanding our $3.25 convertible preferred stock) or
   Holdco (if we effect the exchange for Holdco convertible preferred stock).

   In general, absent non-payment of dividends, our $3.25 convertible preferred
   stock does not currently have voting rights and will not obtain further
   voting rights if we do not complete the merger.

Q: WHAT ARE THE U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSEQUENCES OF THE MERGER TO NEWMONT
   STOCKHOLDERS?

A: We expect that holders of Newmont common stock will not be required to pay
   any U.S. federal income tax as a result of the merger. Holders should
   consult their own tax advisors regarding the tax consequences to them of the
   merger.

Q: WHEN IS THE SPECIAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS?

A: The special meeting will take place on February ., 2002. The location of the
   special meeting is specified on the cover page of this document.


                                      2



Q: WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT THE SPECIAL MEETING?

A: At the special meeting, our stockholders will vote on four matters:

    .  adoption of the merger agreement;

    .  a proposed amendment to our restated certificate of incorporation to
       increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 250
       million shares to 750 million shares, which will be enacted in the event
       that the restructuring is not completed; and

    .  the issuance of the shares of Holdco or, in the event that the
       restructuring is not completed, shares of Newmont common stock necessary
       to complete the transactions.

   Unless we complete the restructuring through the merger or amend our
   restated certificate of incorporation, we will not have authorized
   sufficient shares of Holdco common stock, or Newmont common stock, as the
   case may be, to complete the transactions. We cannot complete the merger,
   amend our restated certificate of incorporation or issue the shares
   necessary to complete the acquisitions of Normandy or Franco-Nevada unless
   our stockholders vote in favor of these proposals.

   YOUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE FOR THE
   ADOPTION OF THE MERGER AGREEMENT, FOR THE AMENDMENT TO OUR RESTATED
   CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION, FOR THE ISSUANCE OF SHARES OF HOLDCO OR
   NEWMONT COMMON STOCK AND FOR THE ADJOURNMENT OF THE MEETING, IF NECESSARY,
   TO PERMIT THE SOLICITATION OF FURTHER VOTES IN FAVOR OF THESE PROPOSALS.

Q: WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO VOTE?

A: Mail your signed proxy card in the enclosed return envelope. You also may
   vote by telephone or through the Internet, in each case, as soon as possible
   so that your shares may be represented at the special meeting. In order to
   ensure that we obtain your vote, please vote as instructed on your proxy
   card, even if you currently plan to attend the special meeting in person.

Q: WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THE MERGER AGREEMENT IS NOT ADOPTED BY THE STOCKHOLDERS?

A: If we do not receive the required stockholder vote for adoption of the
   merger agreement, we cannot complete the restructuring. We may also choose
   not to engage in the restructuring even if we obtain the necessary
   stockholder approval. See "The Transactions--Overview" on page 32.

   THE RESTRUCTURING CONTEMPLATED BY THE MERGER AGREEMENT IS NOT A PREREQUISITE
   TO THE TRANSACTIONS. If, for whatever reason, the restructuring contemplated
   by the merger agreement is not completed, then Normandy and Franco-Nevada
   stockholders would receive Newmont (not Holdco) common stock pursuant to the
   transactions. In order to have authorized under our restated certificate of
   incorporation sufficient shares of Newmont common stock for issuance to
   Normandy and Franco-Nevada stockholders in the transactions, we must amend
   our restated certificate of incorporation. Further, under New York Stock
   Exchange rules, we may not issue the number of shares necessary to complete
   the transactions unless that issuance is approved by our stockholders.
   THEREFORE, YOUR VOTES ON THE PROPOSALS TO AMEND THE RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF
   INCORPORATION AND TO APPROVE THE ISSUANCE OF THE SHARES ARE SIGNIFICANT
   REGARDLESS OF YOUR APPROVAL OR REJECTION OF THE MERGER PROPOSAL.

Q: HAS THE NORMANDY BOARD OF DIRECTORS MADE ANY RECOMMENDATION REGARDING THE
   OFFER TO NORMANDY SHAREHOLDERS AND HOLDERS OF NORMANDY AMERICAN DEPOSITARY
   SHARES, OR ADSS?

A: Yes. Subject to its fiduciary duties, the Normandy board of directors has
   agreed to recommend our offer to Normandy shareholders and holders of
   Normandy ADSs.

Q: HAS THE FRANCO-NEVADA BOARD OF DIRECTORS MADE ANY RECOMMENDATION REGARDING
   NEWMONT'S PROPOSED ACQUISITION OF ALL OF THE OUTSTANDING FRANCO-NEVADA
   COMMON SHARES?

A: Yes. Other than Mr. Seymour Schulich, Mr. Pierre Lassonde and Mr. M. Craig
   Haase,


                                      3



   who are members of the management of Franco-Nevada and recused themselves
   from voting, each member of the Franco-Nevada board of directors voted to
   approve our proposed acquisition of all of the outstanding Franco-Nevada
   common shares and recommends that Franco-Nevada shareholders vote to approve
   the arrangement. Messrs. Schulich and Lassonde recused themselves from
   voting due to their interests in the transaction, but have independently
   agreed with Newmont to escrow a significant portion of their Franco-Nevada
   common shares that will be exchanged for shares of our common stock as a
   demonstration of their commitment to the success of New Newmont.

Q: SHOULD I SEND IN MY NEWMONT STOCK CERTIFICATES NOW?

A: No. If and when the merger is completed, each certificate representing
   shares of Newmont common stock will automatically represent identical shares
   of Holdco common stock. Please do not send in any Newmont stock certificates.

Q: HOW DO I VOTE MY SHARES IF MY SHARES ARE HELD IN "STREET NAME"?

A: You should contact your broker. Your broker can give you directions on how
   to instruct the broker to vote your shares of Newmont common stock. Your
   broker will not vote your shares unless the broker receives appropriate
   instructions from you.

Q: MAY I CHANGE MY VOTE EVEN AFTER RETURNING A PROXY CARD?

A: Yes. If you want to change your vote, you may do so at any time before the
   special meeting by sending to the secretary of Newmont a proxy with a later
   date or by voting again by telephone or through the Internet. Alternatively,
   you may revoke your proxy by delivering to the secretary of Newmont a
   written revocation prior to the special meeting or by voting in person at
   the special meeting.

   If you require assistance in changing or revoking a proxy, you should
   contact MacKenzie Partners, our solicitation agent for the merger, at
   1-800-322-2885.

Q: WHAT IF I DON'T INDICATE A VOTE OR FAIL TO VOTE?

A: If you sign, date and mail your proxy card without indicating how you want
   to vote, your proxy will be voted in favor of the proposals. If you fail to
   vote in any of the ways outlined in the proxy card, or if you fail to
   instruct your broker how to vote shares held for you in the broker's name,
   the effect will be the same as a vote against the proposals.

Q: IF I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE MERGER, THE TRANSACTIONS OR THE COMPANIES
   THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE TRANSACTIONS, WHERE CAN I FIND ANSWERS?

A: In addition to reading this document, the appendices to this document and
   the documents we have incorporated in this document by reference, you can

   that are the subject of the transactions in filings with the Securities and

THE TRANSACTIONS (PAGE 32)

   THE FORM OF THE MERGER AGREEMENT IS ATTACHED AS APPENDIX A TO THIS DOCUMENT.
THE ARRANGEMENT AGREEMENT WITH FRANCO-NEVADA IS ATTACHED AS APPENDIX B TO THIS
DOCUMENT. THE DEEDS OF UNDERTAKING WITH NORMANDY ARE ATTACHED AS APPENDIX C TO
THIS DOCUMENT. PLEASE READ THESE DOCUMENTS CAREFULLY, AS THEY ARE THE LEGAL
DOCUMENTS THAT GOVERN THE TRANSACTIONS.

   In the transactions, we intend to acquire both Normandy and Franco-Nevada to
create the world's largest gold producer. We refer to the combined company
resulting from one or both of these acquisitions as "New Newmont." To acquire
Normandy, we are making an off-market bid for all the Normandy shares held by
persons other than Franco-Nevada and its subsidiaries. To acquire
Franco-Nevada, we have entered into the arrangement agreement, pursuant to
which holders of Franco-Nevada common shares will receive 0.8 of a share of
Newmont common stock (or exchangeable shares, exchangeable for Newmont common
stock) for each of their Franco-Nevada common shares. Our bid for Normandy is
not conditioned on completion of the Franco-Nevada transaction. However, the
completion of the Franco-Nevada transaction is conditioned on us and our
associates achieving a relevant interest in at least 50.1% of the Normandy
shares, calculated on a fully diluted basis.

   To complete the transactions, our stockholders must approve the issuance of
the shares of Holdco common stock or, in the event the merger is not completed,
shares of Newmont common stock to be issued to Franco-Nevada stockholders
pursuant to the arrangement agreement and to holders of Normandy shares
pursuant to our bid for Normandy. In addition, if the common stock to be issued
is Newmont common stock, our stockholders must approve an amendment to our
restated certificate of incorporation to increase the number of authorized
shares of Newmont common stock to be issued in connection with the transactions.

THE MERGER (PAGE 51)

       GENERAL: THE RESTRUCTURING

   In connection with the transactions, we propose a merger with Acquisitionco,
an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary created for the purpose of effecting the
merger. After the merger, we will survive as a wholly owned subsidiary of
Holdco, which will become the holding company for the Newmont group and will
directly own all the common stock of Newmont. Holdco will be renamed "Newmont
Mining Corporation," and you will become stockholders of the new Newmont Mining
Corporation.

                                      7



       CONVERSION OF NEWMONT STOCK

   If we complete the merger, each share of Newmont common stock will be
converted, without any action on your part, into one share of Holdco common
stock. Pursuant to the merger agreement, we have the option either to leave
outstanding the shares of our $3.25 convertible preferred stock or to exchange
the outstanding shares of our $3.25 convertible preferred stock for shares of
Holdco $3.25 convertible preferred stock having the same preferences and rights
with respect to Holdco. In either case, the holders of convertible preferred
stock will be entitled to vote together with the holders of common stock on all
matters relating to Newmont (if we choose to leave outstanding our convertible
preferred stock) or Holdco (if we effect the exchange for Holdco convertible
preferred stock). In either case, the aggregate voting power of the Holdco
convertible preferred stock, as a class, or the Newmont convertible preferred
stock, as a class, will be commensurate with the proportionate economic
interest in Newmont of holders of Newmont convertible preferred stock, as a
class, immediately prior to the completion of the merger.

   In general, absent non-payment of dividends, our $3.25 convertible preferred
stock does not currently have voting rights and will not obtain further voting
rights if we do not complete the merger.

   MANAGEMENT AND OPERATIONS AFTER THE TRANSACTIONS (PAGE 48)

   Upon completion of the transactions and the merger, Wayne W. Murdy, our
current president and Chief Executive Officer, will serve as Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer of New Newmont. Pierre Lassonde, currently President and
Co-Chief Executive Officer of Franco-Nevada, will serve as President of New
Newmont.

   The New Newmont board of directors will consist of 17 members, including the
current 12 directors of Newmont, Seymour Schulich and Pierre Lassonde, the
co-chief executive officers of Franco-Nevada, one additional nominee from
Franco-Nevada and two nominees from Normandy. Robert J. Champion de Crespigny,
currently Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Normandy, will be invited to
fill one of the Normandy positions.

   If the Normandy transaction is completed but the Franco-Nevada transaction
is not, New Newmont's board of directors will consist of 14 members, including
the current 12 directors of Newmont and two nominees from Normandy. Mr.
Champion de Crespigny will be invited to fill one of the Normandy positions.
Mr. Murdy will serve as Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of New
Newmont.

   OUR RECOMMENDATION TO STOCKHOLDERS (PAGE 44)

   Your board of directors has determined that the merger agreement, the
proposed amendment to Newmont's restated certificate of incorporation, the
issuance of shares and the proposed transactions with Normandy and
Franco-Nevada are fair to and in the best interests of Newmont and its
stockholders and has declared them advisable. Your board has approved the
merger agreement, the proposed amendment to our restated certificate of
incorporation and the issuance of the shares necessary to complete the
transactions. YOUR BOARD UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE FOR THE ADOPTION
OF THE MERGER AGREEMENT, FOR THE AMENDMENT TO NEWMONT'S RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF
INCORPORATION, FOR THE ISSUANCE OF SHARES OF HOLDCO OR NEWMONT COMMON STOCK AND
FOR THE ADJOURNMENT OF THE MEETING, IF NECESSARY, TO PERMIT THE SOLICITATION OF
FURTHER VOTES IN FAVOR OF THESE PROPOSALS.

   TERMINATION (PAGE 51)

   The merger agreement may be terminated before the effective time of the
merger, notwithstanding the adoption of the merger agreement by our
stockholders, for any reason by any of the parties to the merger agreement.

                                      8



   In addition, a number of factors may lead to the non-completion of the
proposed offer for Normandy shares and the termination of the arrangement
agreement concerning Franco-Nevada common shares. See "The Acquisition of
Normandy" and "The Acquisition of Franco-Nevada" on pages 53 and 61,
respectively.

APPRAISAL RIGHTS (PAGE 127)

   Under Delaware law, you are not entitled to appraisal rights in connection
with the transactions or the merger.

CERTAIN U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSEQUENCES (PAGE 49)

   The parties have structured the transaction so that it is anticipated that
the merger will be a reorganization for U.S. federal income tax purposes and/or
that the merger, taken together with the exchange of Normandy shares for New
Newmont common stock and the exchange of Franco-Nevada common shares for New
Newmont common stock will be treated as an exchange described in Section 351 of
the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. If the merger is a
reorganization and/or an exchange described in Section 351 of the Internal
Revenue Code, holders of Newmont common stock will not recognize gain or loss
for U.S. federal income tax purposes in the transaction. You are strongly urged
to consult with a tax advisor to determine the particular U.S. federal, state
or local or foreign income or other tax consequences of the merger to you.

REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS (PAGE 45)

   Pursuant to the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as
amended, or HSR Act, on November 28, 2001, we filed a Premerger Notification
and Report Form in connection with our offer for Normandy with the Antitrust
Division of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission.
The applicable waiting period following the filing was terminated early by the
FTC on December 21, 2001. On November 28, 2001, we filed a Premerger
Notification and Report Form in connection with our acquisition of
Franco-Nevada. The applicable waiting period will expire on December 28, 2001,
unless it is terminated earlier or extended by the FTC or the Antitrust
Division.

   We and Franco-Nevada filed a request for an advance ruling certificate with
the Canadian Commissioner of Competition on December 14, 2001. We also filed an
application for review of the arrangement with Franco-Nevada with the Minister
responsible for the Investment Canada Act.

   Under the Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Act 1975 (Cth) of Australia, we
must notify the Foreign Investment Review Board, or FIRB, which acts on behalf
of the Treasurer of Australia, before we acquire more than 15% of Normandy. The
Treasurer may prohibit the acquisition, if the Treasurer considers that it
would be contrary to the national interest. The Treasurer must decide within 30
days whether he has any objection to the acquisition, or extend the time for
making a decision by up to a further 90 days. The notification was lodged with
FIRB on December 7, 2001; accordingly, the initial period for a decision will
expire on January 6, 2002.

   We and Normandy conduct operations in a number of other jurisdictions where
regulatory filings or approvals may be required in connection with the offer
for Normandy. We have made antitrust filings with the relevant authorities in
Brazil. We are currently in the process of reviewing whether any other filings
will be required or advisable in other jurisdictions, and currently intend to
make the appropriate regulatory filings and applications if it is determined
that such filings are required or advisable.

   In addition, our arrangement with Franco-Nevada is subject to approval by
the Superior Court of the Province of Ontario. See "The Acquisition of
Franco-Nevada--Court Approval of the Arrangement and Completion of the
Franco-Nevada Transaction" on page 68.

       SUMMARY HISTORICAL AND UNAUDITED PRO FORMA FINANCIAL INFORMATION

   SUMMARY UNAUDITED COMPARATIVE HISTORICAL AND PRO FORMA PER SHARE DATA

   The table set forth below depicts the Pro Forma Earnings (Loss) Per Share,
the Book Value Per Share and Cash Dividends Declared Per Common Share on an
equivalent share basis in U.S. dollars (1) for Newmont, Normandy and
Franco-Nevada on a historical basis, (2) for the combination of Newmont and
Normandy, and the combination of Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada, on a pro
forma combined basis and (3) for the combination of Newmont and Normandy, and
the combination of Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada, on a per share
equivalent pro forma basis for each of Normandy and Franco-Nevada. The pro
forma data for the combined company was derived by combining the historical
consolidated financial information of Newmont and Normandy, and the historical
consolidated financial information of Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada,
using the purchase method of accounting for business combinations as described
under "New Newmont Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Financial Statements"
on page 105. The Normandy equivalent share pro forma information shows the
effect of the combination of Newmont and Normandy, and the combination of
Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada, from the perspective of an owner of
ordinary shares of Normandy. The Franco-Nevada equivalent share pro forma
information shows the effect of the combination of Newmont and Normandy, and
the combination of Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada, from the perspective of
an owner of common shares of Franco-Nevada.

                                 RISK FACTORS

   IN CONSIDERING WHETHER TO VOTE IN FAVOR OF THE MERGER AND THE ISSUANCE OF
SHARES OF HOLDCO OR NEWMONT COMMON STOCK AND THE OTHER MATTERS PRESENTED AT THE
SPECIAL MEETING, YOU SHOULD CONSIDER ALL OF THE INFORMATION WE HAVE INCLUDED IN
THIS DOCUMENT AND ITS APPENDICES AND ALL OF THE INFORMATION INCLUDED IN THE
DOCUMENTS WE HAVE INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE. IN ADDITION, YOU SHOULD PAY
PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING RISKS RELATED TO THE TRANSACTIONS, WHICH
HAVE BEEN SEPARATED INTO THREE GROUPS:

    .  risks related to the transactions;

    .  risks related to the gold mining industry generally; and

    .  risks related to our operations.

RISKS RELATED TO THE TRANSACTIONS

  UNCERTAINTIES EXIST IN INTEGRATING THE BUSINESS OPERATIONS OF THE THREE
  COMPANIES.

   We intend, to the extent possible, to integrate our operations with those of
Normandy and, if the plan of arrangement is completed, Franco-Nevada. This
intention, and the risks associated with it, apply whether or not we acquire
Franco-Nevada. Our goal in integrating these operations is to increase earnings
and achieve cost savings by taking advantage of the synergies of consolidation
and enhanced growth opportunities. We may encounter substantial difficulties
integrating our operations with Normandy's and Franco-Nevada's operations,
resulting in a delay or the failure to achieve the anticipated synergies and,
therefore, the expected increases in earnings. Moreover, the integration
process may cause us to incur substantial costs as a result of, among other
things:

    .  loss of key employees;

    .  possible inconsistencies in standards, controls, procedures and
       policies, business cultures and compensation structures among us,
       Normandy and Franco-Nevada, and the need to implement, integrate and
       harmonize various business-specific operating procedures and systems, as
       well as company-wide financial, accounting, information and other
       systems; and

    .  the diversion of management's attention from day-to-day business as a
       result of the need to deal with integration issues.

   For these reasons, we may fail to complete successfully the necessary
integration of Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada, or Newmont and Normandy (as
the case may be) or to realize any of the anticipated benefits of the
integration of the three companies. Actual cost savings and synergies may be
lower than we currently expect and may take a longer time to achieve than we
currently anticipate.

  FULL INTEGRATION OF OUR OPERATIONS WITH NORMANDY'S OPERATIONS MAY NOT BE
  ACHIEVED IF WE CANNOT COMPULSORILY ACQUIRE ALL OUTSTANDING NORMANDY SHARES.

   Our offer for Normandy shares (and the respective obligations of us and
Franco-Nevada to complete our acquisition of Franco-Nevada) are subject to a
condition that, before the end of the offer period, we and our associates have
relevant interests in at least 50.1% of the Normandy shares (including the
19.79% owned by Franco-Nevada), calculated on a fully-diluted basis. To effect
the compulsory acquisition of all of the ordinary shares of Normandy (including
shares represented by Normandy ADSs) under the Corporations Act of Australia,
we are required to have a relevant interest in at least 90% (by number) of all
of the Normandy shares at the end of the offer period. It is possible that, at
the end of the offer period, we will not hold a sufficient number of Normandy
shares to effect a compulsory acquisition of the remaining outstanding Normandy
shares under the Corporations Act. This could prevent or delay us from
realizing some or all of the anticipated benefits from the integration of our
operations with Normandy's operations.

                                      19



   See "The Transactions--Background to the Transactions" and "The
Transactions--Reasons for the Transactions" on pages 33 and 39, respectively.

  EVEN IF WE AND OUR ASSOCIATES HAVE RELEVANT INTERESTS IN AT LEAST 50.1% OF
  THE NORMANDY SHARES, WE MAY BE UNABLE TO COMPLETE THE ACQUISITION OF
  FRANCO-NEVADA.

   The respective obligations of us and Franco-Nevada to complete the
acquisition of Franco-Nevada by us are subject to the condition that we and our
associates have relevant interests in at least 50.1% of the Normandy shares,
calculated on a fully diluted basis (including Franco-Nevada's holding of
approximately 19.79% of Normandy shares calculated on a fully diluted basis).
There is no condition to our offer for Normandy that the Franco-Nevada
transaction be completed. Even if we and our associates have such relevant
interests, however, Newmont may be unable to acquire Franco-Nevada due to the
non-satisfaction of any one of a number of other conditions to that
acquisition, including shareholder and regulatory approvals. Accordingly, we
may succeed in acquiring Normandy while failing to acquire Franco-Nevada, and
could thus be prevented from realizing the benefits from the integration of our
operations with Franco-Nevada's operations that we expect to result from the
acquisition of all of the outstanding common shares of Franco-Nevada. Absent
these benefits, we may not achieve all of the strategic objectives we expect to
achieve from the combination of us, Normandy and Franco-Nevada into a single
company.

   For further details on these consequences, see "--Risks Related to Our
Operations" and "The Transactions--Reasons for the Transactions" on pages 24
and 39, respectively.

  ANTITRUST AND COMPETITION AUTHORITIES IN VARIOUS JURISDICTIONS MAY ATTEMPT TO
  DELAY OR PREVENT OUR ACQUISITION OF VOTING AND CONTROL RIGHTS OR MAY REQUIRE
  DIVESTITURES.

   We and Normandy conduct operations in a number of jurisdictions where
antitrust filings or approvals may be required in connection with the offer. We
have made or will make antitrust filings with the relevant authorities in the
United States, Brazil and Canada. We are currently in the process of reviewing
whether any other filings will be required or advisable in other jurisdictions,
and we intend to make the appropriate regulatory filings and applications if we
decide that such filings are required or advisable. We are confident that the
necessary regulatory approvals will be obtained. Nevertheless, we cannot
provide any assurance that the necessary approvals will be obtained or that
there will not be any adverse consequences to our, Franco-Nevada's or
Normandy's business resulting from the failure to obtain these regulatory
approvals or from conditions that could be imposed in connection with obtaining
these approvals, including divestitures or other operating restrictions upon
our business.

  WE HAVE NOT VERIFIED THE RELIABILITY OF THE NORMANDY INFORMATION INCLUDED IN,
  OR WHICH MAY HAVE BEEN OMITTED FROM, THIS DOCUMENT.

   In respect of information relating to Normandy presented in, or omitted
from, this proxy statement/prospectus, including all Normandy financial
information, we have relied exclusively upon publicly available information.
Pursuant to Rule 409 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended,
on December 17, 2001, we requested that Normandy and its independent public
accountants provide to us all material information required to be included in
our offer document or required to make statements made herein not misleading.
On December 11, 2001, we requested that Normandy's independent public
accountants consent in a customary manner to the inclusion of its audit reports
with respect to the financial statements of Normandy included in this document.
On December 14, 2001, Normandy's independent public accountants responded in
writing to our December 11, 2001 letter stating that they were reluctant to
give consent for the inclusion of Normandy's audit report where consent has not
been given for the financial statements themselves, and believed it was
appropriate that its consent be given concurrently with Normandy's consent. On
December 19, 2001, Normandy, on its own behalf and on behalf of its
accountants, responded in writing to our December 17, 2001 letter and stated
that it was not appropriate for Normandy to bear any burden as to what the
document should contain and whether or not the document was misleading.
Normandy further stated that if there were specifics which Newmont wished to

                                      20



refer to Normandy for review and comment, Normandy would consider whether it
could be of assistance and to what extent, on a case by case basis. In
addition, Normandy stated that its accountants were not in a position to
provide assistance to us, that work on U.S. GAAP reconciliation of its
financial statements had not been completed to Normandy's satisfaction and that
Normandy had not yet determined whether it would allow U.S. GAAP reconciliation
of its financial statements to be made public at this time. Any inaccuracy in
the Normandy information contained in this document could adversely affect the
results of operations of New Newmont. For further information, see "The
Companies--Business of Normandy--Disclaimer Information in Relation to
Normandy" on page 95.

  CHANGE OF CONTROL PROVISIONS IN NORMANDY'S AGREEMENTS TRIGGERED UPON THE
  ACQUISITION OF CONTROL OF NORMANDY MAY LEAD TO ADVERSE CONSEQUENCES.

   Normandy is a party to agreements that contain change of control provisions
that may be triggered if, following completion of the offer, we hold Normandy
shares representing a majority of the voting rights of Normandy. The operation
of these change of control provisions, if triggered, could result in
significant debt acceleration or prepayments and require Normandy to
renegotiate its financings or sell joint venture interests. These provisions
may be waived with the consent of the other party and we intend to consider
seeking such waivers. In the absence of these waivers, the operation of any of
these change of control provisions could adversely affect the operations of New
Newmont.

  INFORMATION PROVIDED TO AND BY FRANCO-NEVADA REGARDING THE VARIOUS MINING
  PROPERTIES IN WHICH IT HOLDS ROYALTY INTERESTS HAS NOT BEEN INDEPENDENTLY
  VERIFIED.

   Franco-Nevada holds most of its producing mineral interests in the form of
net smelter return ("NSR") royalties and net profit interest ("NPI") royalties.
This means that Franco-Nevada does not, itself, own or operate any mines and,
aside from any audit rights that it may have with respect to the payments
received from mining companies, may not, in all cases, have access to
non-public or internal records of mining companies or may otherwise be
restricted by confidentiality obligations. Accordingly, the information
provided by Franco-Nevada with respect to the production, reserves, mining
operations and exploration and development of the various mining properties in
which Franco-Nevada holds royalty interests has been taken from information
published by the operating companies in their annual reports, other public
disclosure documents and information prepared by management. Franco-Nevada, and
therefore we, cannot be certain that all of such information is complete and
accurate in all material respects. Changes in the reserves, mining operations
or development of any of the various properties in which Franco-Nevada holds
royalty interests could result in a material reduction in the royalty income of
New Newmont.

  NORMANDY IS A SUBSTANTIAL SHAREHOLDER IN AUSTRALIAN MAGNESIUM CORPORATION
  (AMC).

   Normandy is a substantial holder of AMC securities and has significant
future obligations to AMC. AMC has announced:

    .  on November 21, 2001, that all conditions of its public offer of
       distribution entitled securities pursuant to its prospectus dated
       October 15, 2001 have been satisfied; and

    .  on November 22, 2001, that the AMC board of directors has given formal
       approval to commence development of the $1.3 billion Stanwell Magnesium
       Project.

   There are a number of significant risks related to investments in AMC,
including:

    .  risks related to the Stanwell Magnesium Project which has no operating
       history;

    .  AMC's substantial dependence on the Stanwell Magnesium Project;

    .  risks related to the magnesium market;

                                      21



    .  financial risks specific to AMC's business and operations;

    .  risk factors related to general market conditions; and

    .  AMC's reliance upon Normandy for financial and operational support.

   Additionally, AMC announced on November 29, 2001 that Normandy has agreed to
continue as guarantor of AMC's foreign exchange hedging position and $72
million corporate facility with ANZ Banking Group Limited. If AMC is unable to
perform its obligations under these arrangements, there is a risk that
Normandy, as guarantor, may incur liabilities under these arrangements.

RISKS RELATED TO THE GOLD MINING INDUSTRY GENERALLY

  A SUBSTANTIAL OR EXTENDED DECLINE IN GOLD PRICES WOULD HAVE A MATERIAL
  ADVERSE EFFECT ON NEW NEWMONT.

   The businesses of Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada are extremely
dependent on the price of gold, which is affected by numerous factors beyond
our control. Factors tending to put downward pressure on the price of gold
include:

    .  sales or leasing of gold by governments and central banks;

    .  a low rate of inflation and a strong U.S. dollar;

    .  global and regional recession or reduced economic activity;

    .  speculative trading;

    .  the demand for gold for industrial uses, use in jewelry, and investment;

    .  high supply of gold from production, disinvestment, scrap and hedging;

    .  interest rates;

    .  sales by gold producers in forward transactions and other hedging;

    .  the production and cost levels for gold in major gold-producing nations;
       and

    .  the cost level (in local currencies) for gold in major consuming nations.

   Any drop in the price of gold adversely impacts our revenues, profits and
cash flows, particularly in light of our "no hedging" philosophy. Normandy and
Franco-Nevada have recorded asset writedowns in recent years as a result of a
sustained period of low gold prices. New Newmont may experience additional
asset impairment as a result of continuing low gold prices.

   In addition, sustained low gold prices can: (1) reduce revenues further by
production cutbacks due to cessation of the mining of deposits or portions of
deposits that have become uneconomic at the then-prevailing gold price; (2)
halt or delay the development of new projects; (3) reduce funds available for
exploration, with the result that depleted reserves are not replaced; and (4)
reduce the existing reserves, by removing ores from reserves that cannot be
economically mined or treated at prevailing prices.

  WE NEED TO CONTINUALLY OBTAIN ADDITIONAL RESERVES FOR GOLD PRODUCTION.

   We must continually replace gold reserves depleted by production. Depleted
reserves must be replaced by expanding known orebodies or by locating new
deposits in order for us to maintain our production levels over the long term.
Success in exploration for gold is uncertain. As a result, the reserve base of
New Newmont may decline as reserves are produced without adequate replacement.

                                      22



  ESTIMATES OF PROVEN AND PROBABLE RESERVES ARE UNCERTAIN.

   Estimates of proven and probable reserves and cash operating costs are
subject to considerable uncertainty. Such estimates are, to a large extent,
based on interpretations of geologic data obtained from drill holes and other
sampling techniques. Gold producers use feasibility studies to derive estimates
of cash operating costs based upon anticipated tonnage and grades of ore to be
mined and processed, the predicted configuration of the ore body, expected
recovery rates of metals from the ore, comparable facility, equipment and
operating costs, and other factors. Actual cash operating costs and economic
returns on projects may differ significantly from original estimates. Further,
it may take many years from the initial phase of drilling before production is
possible and, during that time, the economic feasibility of exploiting a
discovery may change.

  INCREASED COSTS COULD AFFECT PROFITABILITY.

   The cash cost of production at any particular mining location is frequently
subject to great variation from one year to the next due to a number of
factors, such as changing waste-to-ore ratios, ore grade and metallurgy. In the
past, a cash cost swing of 10% at any one location has not been a significant
factor in our profitability. However, this may not always be the case.

  MINING ACCIDENTS OR OTHER ADVERSE EVENTS AT A MINING LOCATION COULD REDUCE
  OUR PRODUCTION LEVELS.

   At any of our operations, production may fall below historic or estimated
levels as a result of mining accidents such as a pit wall failure in an open
pit mine, or cave-ins or flooding at underground mines. In addition, production
may be unexpectedly reduced at a location if, during the course of mining,
unfavorable ground conditions or seismic activity are encountered, ore grades
are lower than expected, or the physical or metallurgical characteristics of
the ore are less amenable to mining or treatment than expected.

  THE USE OF HEDGING INSTRUMENTS MAY PREVENT GAINS BEING REALIZED FROM
  SUBSEQUENT PRICE INCREASES.

   Consistent with our position as a largely unhedged producer, New Newmont
does not intend to enter into new gold hedging positions. This creates a risk
that, as gold prices fall, New Newmont's revenues will be adversely affected.
Further, over time, our intention is to deliver into Normandy's existing hedge
contracts, and we will seek to unwind New Newmont's hedge position when
economically attractive. Nonetheless, New Newmont will retain a gold hedging
position at the outset. If the gold price rises above the price at which future
production has been committed under these hedge instruments, we will have an
opportunity loss. However, if the gold price falls below that committed price,
New Newmont's revenues will be protected to the extent of such committed
production.

  CURRENCY FLUCTUATIONS MAY AFFECT THE COSTS THAT WE INCUR.

   Currency fluctuations may affect the costs that we incur at our operations.
Gold is sold throughout the world based principally on the U.S. dollar price,
but a portion of our operating expenses are incurred in local currencies. The
appreciation of non-U.S. dollar currencies against the U.S. dollar can increase
the costs of gold production in U.S. dollar terms at mines located outside the
United States.

  GOLD MINING COMPANIES ARE SUBJECT TO EXTENSIVE ENVIRONMENTAL LAWS AND
  REGULATIONS.

   Our exploration, production and processing operations are extensively
regulated under various U.S. federal, state and local and foreign laws relating
to the protection of air and water quality, hazardous waste management and mine
reclamation. We have incurred current liabilities and may have potential future
liability for environmental costs. Further, the regulatory environment for our
operations could change in ways that would substantially increase our liability
or the costs of compliance and that could have a material adverse effect on our
operations or financial position.

                                      23



RISKS RELATED TO OUR OPERATIONS

   In addition to the risks related to the gold mining industry generally, our
operations are also subject to the following risks specific to us:

  OUR OPERATIONS OUTSIDE NORTH AMERICA AND AUSTRALIA ARE SUBJECT TO THE RISKS
  OF DOING BUSINESS ABROAD.

   Exploration, development and production activities outside of North America
and Australia are potentially subject to political and economic risks,
including:

    .  cancellation or renegotiation of contracts;

    .  disadvantages of competing against companies from countries that are not
       subject to U.S. laws and regulations, including the Foreign Corrupt
       Practices Act;

    .  changes in foreign laws or regulations;

    .  changes in tax laws;

    .  royalty and tax increases or claims by governmental entities;

    .  retroactive tax or royalty claims;

    .  expropriation or nationalization of property;

    .  currency fluctuations (particularly in countries with high inflation);

    .  foreign exchange controls;

    .  restrictions on the ability of local operating companies to sell gold
       offshore for U.S. dollars, and on the ability of such companies to hold
       U.S. dollars or other foreign currencies in offshore bank accounts;

    .  import and export regulations, including restrictions on the export of
       gold;

    .  restrictions on the ability to pay dividends offshore;

    .  environmental controls;

    .  risks of loss due to civil strife, acts of war, guerrilla activities,
       insurrection and terrorism; and

    .  other risks arising out of foreign sovereignty over the areas in which
       our operations are conducted.

   Consequently, our exploration, development and production activities outside
of North America and Australia may be substantially affected by factors beyond
our control, any of which could materially adversely affect our financial
position or results of operations. Furthermore, in the event of a dispute
arising from such activities, we may be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction
of courts outside North America or Australia or may not be successful in
subjecting persons to the jurisdiction of the courts in North America or
Australia, which could adversely affect the outcome of a dispute.

   We have substantial investments in Indonesia, a nation that since 1997 has
undergone financial crises and devaluation of its currency, outbreaks of
political and religious violence, changes in national leadership and the
secession of East Timor, one of its former provinces. Despite democratic
elections in 1999, a change in government occurred in late July 2001, and civil
unrest, independence movements and tensions between the civilian government and
the military continue. These problems heighten the risk of abrupt changes in
leadership or in the national policy toward foreign investors, which in turn
could result in unilateral modification of concessions or contracts, increased
taxation, or expropriation of assets.

   In October 2000, Peru's President, Alberto Fujimori, resigned as a result of
various revelations and accusations relating to his national security advisor
Vladimiro Montesinos. An interim government was appointed, and elections for a
new president and Congress were held in April 2001, with run-off elections for
the

                                      24



presidency held in June 2001. During the last two years, Minera Yanacocha, a
gold mine which Newmont owns, has been the target of numerous local political
protests, including ones that blocked the road between the Yanacocha mine
complex and the city of Cajamarca. New Newmont cannot predict whether these
incidents will continue, nor can it predict the new government's continuing
positions on foreign investment, mining concessions, land tenure, environmental
regulation or taxation.

  WE INCUR COSTS TO COMPLY WITH ENVIRONMENTAL AND OTHER GOVERNMENTAL
  REGULATIONS, AND REMEDIATION COSTS FOR FEDERAL SUPERFUND LAW LIABILITIES MAY
  EXCEED THE PROVISIONS WE HAVE MADE.

   We have conducted extensive remediation work at two inactive sites in the
United States as a result of liability under the U.S. Superfund Law. At one of
these two sites, remediation requirements have not been finally determined and
the ultimate cost cannot be estimated with certainty. At a third site in the
U.S., an inactive uranium mine and mill formerly operated by a subsidiary of
Newmont, final remediation has not begun due to the failure to date of federal
agencies to agree on a remediation plan. Newmont disputes its liability for
remediation costs at this site. The environmental standards that may ultimately
be imposed at this site remain uncertain and there is a risk that the costs of
remediation may exceed the provision Newmont's subsidiary has made for such
remediation by a material amount.

   Whenever a previously unrecognized remediation claim becomes known or a
previously estimated cost is increased, that amount of additional cost is
expensed in the same period and this can materially reduce net income in that
period.

   We also incur costs to comply with health and safety laws and regulations in
each country where we operate.

  WE COULD HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF INDEBTEDNESS.

   If we complete the acquisition of both Normandy and Franco-Nevada, our level
of indebtedness will increase. If we acquire Normandy and do not acquire
Franco-Nevada, the net debt level of New Newmont will be higher by
approximately US$517 million (after transaction costs) than if we had acquired
Franco-Nevada. See "New Newmont Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed
Financial Statements," on page 105. This level of indebtedness could have
important consequences on our operations, including:

    .  we may need to use a large portion of the money we earn to repay
       principal and pay interest on our debt, which will reduce the amount of
       money available to finance our operations and other business activities;

    .  our debt level may make us more vulnerable to economic downturns and
       adverse developments in our businesses and markets;

    .  our debt level may reduce our flexibility in responding to changing
       business and economic conditions, including increased competition in our
       industry; and

    .  our debt level may limit our ability to pursue other business
       opportunities, borrow money for operations or capital in the future or
       implement our business strategy.

   We expect to obtain the money to pay our expenses and to pay principal and
interest on our debt from our cash flow and refinancings. Our ability to meet
these requirements will depend on our future financial performance, which will
be affected by financial, business, economic and other factors. We will not be
able to control many of these factors, such as economic conditions in the
markets in which we operate. We cannot be certain that our future cash flow
will be sufficient to allow us to pay principal and interest on our debt and
meet our other obligations. If we do not have enough money to do so, we may be
required to refinance all or part of our existing debt, sell assets or borrow
more money. We cannot assure you that we will be able to do so on commercially
reasonable terms, if at all.

                                      25



  OCCURRENCE OF EVENTS FOR WHICH WE ARE NOT INSURED MAY AFFECT OUR CASH FLOWS
  AND OVERALL PROFITABILITY.

   We maintain insurance to protect ourselves against certain risks related to
our operations. This insurance is maintained in amounts that are believed to be
reasonable depending upon the circumstances surrounding each identified risk.
However, we may elect not to have insurance for certain risks because of the
high premiums associated with insuring those risks or for various other
reasons. Occurrence of events for which we are not insured may affect our cash
flows and overall profitability.

  OUR BUSINESS DEPENDS ON GOOD RELATIONS WITH OUR EMPLOYEES.

   We will have a significant number of employees subject to collective
bargaining agreements. New Newmont may experience difficulties in integrating
labor policies, practices and strategies. In addition, problems with or changes
affecting employees of one company may affect relations with employees of one
or both of the other companies. The process of combining our companies
increases the risk of labor disputes, work stoppages, or other disruptions in
production that could adversely affect New Newmont.

  THE EARNINGS OF NEW NEWMONT ALSO COULD BE AFFECTED BY THE PRICES FOR OTHER
  COMMODITIES.

   The revenues and earnings of New Newmont also could be affected, to a lesser
extent than by the price of gold, by the prices of other commodities such as
copper and zinc.

  WE MAY NOT HAVE SATISFACTORY TITLE TO OUR PROPERTIES.

   The validity and ownership of mining property holdings can be uncertain and
may be contested. Although we have attempted to acquire satisfactory title to
our properties, some risk exists that some titles, particularly titles to
undeveloped properties, may be defective. In addition, there are currently a
number of pending native title or traditional landowner claims relating to
certain of Normandy's properties in Australia.

                              THE SPECIAL MEETING

   WE ARE FURNISHING THIS JOINT PROXY STATEMENT/PROSPECTUS TO OUR STOCKHOLDERS
AS PART OF THE SOLICITATION OF PROXIES BY OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS FOR USE AT THE
SPECIAL MEETING.

DATE, TIME, PLACE AND PURPOSE

   We will hold the special meeting on February  . , 2002, at  . , local time,
at  . . The purpose of the special meeting is for you to consider and vote upon:

  .  a proposal to adopt the merger agreement, which provides for the merger of
     Acquisitionco with and into Newmont as part of a restructuring that would
     facilitate the completion of our acquisition of Normandy and Franco-Nevada;

  .  a proposal to amend our restated certificate of incorporation to increase
     the number of authorized shares of Newmont common stock from 250 million
     shares to 750 million shares in the event that the merger is not completed;

  .  a proposal to adjourn the special meeting, if necessary, to permit further
     solicitation of proxies in the event there are not sufficient votes at the
     time of the special meeting to approve the above proposals; and

  .  a proposal to approve the issuance of shares of Holdco common stock, or,
     in the event the merger is not completed, shares of Newmont common stock,
     in connection with the proposed transactions.

OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE FOR THE ADOPTION OF
THE MERGER AGREEMENT, FOR THE AMENDMENT TO OUR RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF
INCORPORATION, FOR THE ISSUANCE OF SHARES OF HOLDCO COMMON STOCK OR, IN THE
EVENT THAT THE MERGER IS NOT COMPLETED, SHARES OF NEWMONT COMMON STOCK AND FOR
THE ADJOURNMENT OF THE MEETING, IF NECESSARY, TO PERMIT THE SOLICITATION OF
FURTHER VOTES IN FAVOR OF THESE PROPOSALS.

RECORD DATE; SHARES ENTITLED TO VOTE; QUORUM

   Only holders of record of Newmont common stock at the close of business on
January  . , 2002, the record date, are entitled to notice of and to vote at
the special meeting. On the record date, approximately . shares of Newmont
common stock were issued and outstanding and held by approximately  . holders
of record. A quorum will be present at the special meeting if the holders of a
majority of the shares of Newmont common stock outstanding and entitled to vote
on the record date are present, in person or by proxy. If a quorum is not
present at the special meeting, we expect that the special meeting will be
adjourned to solicit additional proxies.

   Shares of Newmont common stock represented, in person or by proxy, at the
special meeting but not voting, including shares of Newmont common stock for
which proxies have been received but with respect to which the holders have
abstained from voting, will be treated as present at the special meeting for
purposes of determining the presence or absence of a quorum for the transaction
of all business. Under the rules of the NYSE, brokers that hold shares of
Newmont common stock in nominee or street name for customers that are the
beneficial owners of those shares of Newmont common stock may not vote those
shares of Newmont common stock without the specific instructions of those
customers. However, these so-called "broker non-votes" will be counted for
purposes of determining whether a quorum exists.

   Holders of record of Newmont common stock on the record date are entitled to
one vote per share on each of the proposals to be voted on at the special
meeting. Holders of Newmont $3.25 convertible preferred stock are not entitled
to any vote on the proposals to be voted on at the special meeting.

                                      28



VOTE REQUIRED

   The adoption of the merger agreement by our stockholders requires the
affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the shares of Newmont common
stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the special meeting as of the record
date, either in person or by proxy.

   The approval of the amendment to our restated certificate of incorporation
requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the shares of
Newmont common stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the special meeting as
of the record date, either in person or by proxy.

   The approval of the issuance of the shares of Holdco common stock or, in the
event that the merger is not completed, the shares of Newmont common stock,
requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the shares of
Newmont common stock represented at the special meeting, either in person or by
proxy, and entitled to vote at the special meeting, provided that holders of at
least a majority of the shares of Newmont common stock entitled to vote at the
special meeting do in fact vote, or abstain from voting, on this proposal.

   The approval of the proposal to adjourn the meeting, if necessary, to permit
the solicitation of further votes in favor of the other proposals, requires the
affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the shares of Newmont common
stock voting in favor of or against the proposal represented at the special
meeting either in person or by proxy.

   Because each of the proposals to adopt the merger agreement and to approve
the amendment to Newmont's restated certificate of incorporation requires the
affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the shares of Newmont common
stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the special meeting, abstentions and
broker non-votes will have the same effect as a vote against each proposal.
Because the proposal to approve the issuance of the shares of either Holdco
common stock or the shares of Newmont common stock requires the affirmative
vote of a majority of the shares of Newmont common stock represented at the
special meeting and entitled to vote at the special meeting, abstentions and
broker non-votes will have the same effect as a vote against the proposal. With
respect to the proposal to adjourn the meeting, if necessary, abstentions and
broker non-votes will not be counted.

VOTING BY NEWMONT DIRECTORS AND EXECUTIVE OFFICERS

   At the close of business on the record date, Newmont directors and executive
officers owned and were entitled to vote  .  shares of Newmont common stock,
representing approximately  . % of the shares of Newmont common stock
outstanding on that date. Each Newmont director and executive officer has
indicated his or her present intention to vote, or cause to be voted, the
shares of Newmont common stock owned by him or her in favor of each of the
proposals to be voted on at the special meeting.

VOTING OF PROXIES

   All shares represented by properly executed proxies received in time for the
special meeting will be voted at the special meeting in the manner specified by
the holders of Newmont common stock giving those proxies. Properly executed
proxies that do not contain voting instructions will be voted in favor of the
proposals.

   In addition to manually executing and returning a proxy by mail, holders of
Newmont common stock may submit a proxy by telephone or through the Internet.
If submitting a proxy by telephone or through the Internet, the stockholder
should dial the toll-free number or access the Internet address, in each case,
as indicated on the stockholder's proxy card. The stockholder will then be
prompted to enter the control number printed on his or her proxy card and to
follow the subsequent instructions.

   If your shares of Newmont common stock are held in street name by a bank or
brokerage firm, you will only be able to submit a proxy by telephone or through
the Internet only if this method of submitting your proxy is offered by your
bank or broker and the procedures are described on the voting form sent to you.
If your shares of Newmont common stock are held in street name through a bank
or brokerage firm and you wish to vote in person

                                      29



at the special meeting, you should bring a letter from that bank or brokerage
identifying you as the beneficial owner of those shares and authorizing you to
vote those shares of Newmont common stock.

   The individuals named as proxies by a holder of Newmont common stock may
vote for one or more adjournments of the special meeting, including
adjournments to permit further solicitations of proxies. No proxy voted against
the proposal to adopt the merger agreement will be voted in favor of any
adjournment of the special meeting. At the adjourned meeting, if a quorum is
present, the holders of Newmont common stock may transact any business that
might have been transacted at the original meeting. Delaware law requires that
if the adjournment is for more than 30 days, or if after the adjournment a new
record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, we must give notice to each
holder of record entitled to vote at the meeting.

   We do not expect that any matter other than the proposals described in this
proxy statement/prospectus will be brought before the special meeting. If,
however, other matters are properly presented at the special meeting, the
individuals named as proxies will vote in accordance with the recommendation of
our board of directors with respect to each of those proposals.

REVOCABILITY OF PROXIES

   Submitting a proxy on the enclosed form, by telephone or through the
Internet does not preclude a holder of Newmont common stock from voting in
person at the Newmont special meeting. A holder of Newmont common stock may
revoke a proxy at any time before it is voted by filing with Newmont a duly
executed revocation of proxy, by submitting a duly executed proxy or telephone
or Internet proxy to Newmont with a later date, or by appearing at the special
meeting and voting in person. Holders of Newmont common stock may revoke a
proxy by any of these methods, regardless of the method used to deliver the
previous proxy. ATTENDANCE AT THE SPECIAL MEETING WITHOUT VOTING WILL NOT
ITSELF REVOKE A PROXY.

SOLICITATION OF PROXIES

   We will pay the expenses incurred in connection with the printing and
mailing of this joint proxy statement/prospectus. In addition to this
solicitation by mail, the directors, officers and employees of Newmont and its
subsidiaries, who will not be specifically compensated, may solicit proxies
from holders of Newmont common stock by telephone or other electronic means or
in person. Arrangements will also be made with brokerage houses and other
custodians, nominees and fiduciaries for the forwarding of solicitation
materials to the beneficial owners of shares of Newmont common stock held of
record by these persons, and we will reimburse these persons for their
reasonable out-of-pocket expenses.

   We will mail a copy of this proxy statement/prospectus to each holder of
record of Newmont common stock on the record date.

   We have retained MacKenzie Partners, Inc. to assist in the solicitation of
proxies from banks, brokerage firms, nominees, institutional holders and
individual investors for a customary fee plus reimbursement for expenses.

   The extent to which these proxy soliciting efforts will be necessary depends
on how promptly the holders of Newmont common stock submit their proxies. You
should submit your proxy as soon as possible by mail, by telephone or through
the Internet.

   DO NOT SEND IN ANY NEWMONT STOCK CERTIFICATES WITH YOUR PROXY CARDS. YOUR
NEWMONT STOCK CERTIFICATES WILL REPRESENT YOUR CORRESPONDING SHARES OF HOLDCO
COMMON STOCK UPON COMPLETION OF THE MERGER IF THE MERGER IS CONSUMMATED.

                                      30



PROXIES FOR PARTICIPANTS IN NEWMONT RETIREMENT SAVINGS PLANS

   If you are a participant in the Newmont Mining Corporation Retirement
Savings Plan (Non-Union) or the Newmont Mining Corporation Retirement Savings
Plan for Hourly-Rated Employees (the "Retirement Savings Plans") and hold
shares of Newmont common stock in the Retirement Savings Plans, those shares of
Newmont common stock that are held for you under the Retirement Savings Plans
may be voted through the proxy card accompanying this mailing. The Retirement
Savings Plans are administered by The Vanguard Group, as Trustee. The Trustee,
as the stockholder of record of Newmont common stock held in the Retirement
Savings Plans, will vote the shares of Newmont common stock held for you in
accordance with the directions you give on the enclosed proxy card, provided
that you return the proxy card duly signed and dated to the address indicated
on the enclosed envelope. If the proxy cards representing shares of Newmont
common stock held under the Retirement Savings Plans are not returned duly
signed and dated, the Administration Committees of the Retirement Saving Plans
shall instruct the Trustee with respect to how to vote any of these shares of
Newmont common stock for which instructions are not received.

                               THE TRANSACTIONS

OVERVIEW

   We intend to acquire both Normandy and Franco-Nevada to create the world's
largest gold producer. To accomplish this goal, we are making an off-market bid
for the ordinary shares in the capital of Normandy, and we have entered into an
arrangement agreement to acquire all of the Franco-Nevada common shares. See
"The Acquisition of Normandy" and "The Acquisition of Franco-Nevada," on pages
53 and 61, respectively. It is also possible that we would acquire less than
all of the Normandy shares, either together with or separately from an
acquisition of Franco-Nevada. In either case, we expect to achieve significant
benefits from the combination.

   In connection with the transactions, we intend to complete a restructuring
in which we would merge with Acquisitionco, an indirect, wholly owned
subsidiary. We would be the surviving corporation in the merger. As a result of
the merger, we would become a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Holdco, which
is currently our direct, wholly owned subsidiary and whose certificate of
incorporation authorizes the issuance of 750 million shares of Holdco common
stock.

   THE FOLLOWING DIAGRAM ILLUSTRATES IN SIMPLIFIED TERMS (1) OUR CURRENT
STRUCTURE AND (2) OUR STRUCTURE SHOULD THE MERGER BE COMPLETED:
                                  [FLOW CHART]



   Upon completion of the merger, Holdco will be renamed "Newmont Mining
Corporation" and will become the successor registrant for U.S. securities law
purposes to the company currently named "Newmont Mining Corporation." Following
the merger, Holdco will have the same board of directors as Newmont, and its
certificate of incorporation and by-laws will be substantially similar to our
existing restated certificate of incorporation and by-laws. Material
differences between our constitutive documents and those of Holdco are
discussed under "Comparison of Stockholder Rights" on page 126. Prior to the
start of the trading day following the completion of the merger, Newmont common
stock will cease to trade on the NYSE, and, on that trading day, Holdco common
stock will commence trading on the NYSE. If the merger is completed, the new
"Newmont Mining Corporation" will be the entity that will complete the
acquisitions. We reserve the right to not complete the merger, but to complete
the transactions.

   At the special meeting, you will vote to adopt the merger agreement that
would enable us to complete the restructuring. If the merger is completed, then
the shares to be issued pursuant to the acquisitions will be shares of Holdco
common stock in an amount that is authorized under Holdco's certificate of
incorporation.

   We intend to complete the acquisitions of Normandy and Franco-Nevada even if
the merger is not completed (either because we do not obtain stockholder
approval or because we choose not to engage in the

                                      32



restructuring). If the merger is not completed, we will issue shares of Newmont
common stock to holders of Normandy ordinary shares and Normandy ADSs and
Franco-Nevada common shares. Because the number of shares of common stock
issuable pursuant to the acquisitions, together with the number of shares of
Newmont common stock currently outstanding, exceeds the number of shares of
Newmont common stock authorized under our restated certificate of
incorporation, completion of the transactions would require an increase in the
number of authorized shares of Newmont common stock. THUS, AT THE SPECIAL
MEETING, YOU WILL ALSO VOTE UPON A PROPOSAL, IN THE EVENT THAT THE MERGER IS
NOT COMPLETED, TO AMEND OUR RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION TO INCREASE
THE NUMBER OF AUTHORIZED SHARES OF NEWMONT COMMON STOCK FROM 250 MILLION SHARES
TO 750 MILLION SHARES.

   Further, under NYSE rules, we may not issue the number of shares of Newmont
common stock or Holdco common stock, as the case may be, necessary to complete
the transactions unless that issuance is approved by our stockholders.

   BECAUSE WE INTEND TO COMPLETE THE TRANSACTIONS WHETHER OR NOT WE COMPLETE
THE MERGER, YOUR VOTES ON THE PROPOSALS TO AMEND OUR RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF
INCORPORATION AND TO APPROVE THE ISSUANCE OF THE SHARES ARE SIGNIFICANT,
REGARDLESS OF YOUR APPROVAL OR REJECTION OF THE MERGER PROPOSAL.

BACKGROUND TO THE TRANSACTIONS

   From time to time in recent years, Newmont has considered acquisitions of
other gold mining companies as opportunities in the industry presented
themselves. In January 2001, Newmont completed its acquisition of Battle
Mountain Gold Company in a stock-for-stock merger involving the issuance of
Newmont common shares in a transaction accounted for as a pooling of interests
for financial reporting purposes. As a result of this merger, Newmont acquired
Australian operations.

   In the ordinary course of business, Newmont, Franco-Nevada and Normandy
attend industry conferences where members of senior management will
occasionally discuss strategic opportunities potentially available in the
industry. Newmont and Franco-Nevada had a limited business relationship
(related primarily to Franco-Nevada's royalty interests in Newmont's Deep Post
and Deep Star properties) prior to entering into discussions regarding the
transactions; Newmont had contact with Franco-Nevada pertaining to royalties
held by Franco-Nevada on some of Newmont's peripheral lands in the Carlin
trend. Newmont and Normandy also had limited prior business relationships,
primarily related to the Pajingo joint venture.

   In May 2001, at a gold mining conference in Ireland, members of senior
management of Franco-Nevada and Newmont met and discussed the general state of
the gold mining industry and general corporate philosophy, including hedging
philosophies and approaches. There were no discussions at the conference
regarding a possible business combination involving the two companies or
Normandy.

   In June and July 2001, senior management of Newmont and Franco-Nevada had
several conversations concerning the general state of the industry.

   In late August 2001, Mr. Wayne W. Murdy, Newmont's Chief Executive Officer
and President, received a call from Mr. Pierre Lassonde, Franco-Nevada's
President and Co-Chief Executive Officer, suggesting a meeting to discuss a
potential business opportunity that Franco-Nevada was then working on. This
meeting concerned an exploratory discussion of possible Nevada operating
synergies that might result from Franco-Nevada's investment in Echo Bay Mines.

   On September 5, 2001, AngloGold Limited, a South African mining company,
announced its intention to make an offer to acquire all of the issued Normandy
shares on the basis of 2.15 AngloGold shares for each 100 Normandy shares,
subject to a minimum of 50.1% of the Normandy Shares being deposited in
acceptance into AngloGold's bid and other conditions. The AngloGold bid was
announced without prior consultation with

                                      33



Franco-Nevada which, together with its subsidiary Franco-Nevada Mining
Corporation, Inc., owns approximately 19.79% of the Normandy shares issued and
outstanding on a fully diluted basis.

   On September 6, 2001, Mr. Murdy had a discussion with the Co-Chief Executive
Officers of Franco-Nevada, where the decision was made to schedule a meeting
for September 11, 2001 to discuss in general terms the possibility of a
transaction involving Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada. Several members of
Newmont's management were planning to go to Toronto on September 11, 2001, to
meet with Franco-Nevada's Co-Chief Executive Officers. As a result of the
terrorist acts in New York City and Washington, D.C. on September 11, this
meeting did not take place. Between September 11 and September 20, Mr. Murdy
and Mr. Lassonde had several conversations concerning the possibility of a
three-way transaction as well as the impact on the industry of the events that
took place on September 11, 2001.

   Mr. Murdy and Mr. Lassonde spoke on September 20 and, in that conversation,
Mr. Lassonde expressed his frustration with the "move" that AngloGold had made
on Normandy and his belief that there was substantial upside to the Normandy
asset portfolio, which Franco-Nevada had hoped to participate in bringing to
all Normandy shareholders.

   In September 2001, National Bank Financial began providing advice to
Franco-Nevada with respect to a possible transaction with Newmont. On October
1, 2001, Franco-Nevada formally engaged National Bank Financial to act as its
financial advisor in connection with a possible transaction with Newmont. In
addition, CIBC World Markets was engaged as a special advisor to Franco-Nevada
with respect to due diligence relating to Newmont.

   In September 2001, Newmont contacted J.P. Morgan for assistance in analyzing
the potential acquisition of Normandy and, possibly, Franco-Nevada.
Subsequently, Newmont entered into an engagement letter with J.P. Morgan as its
financial advisor; Goldman Sachs & Co. also was retained by Newmont as its
financial advisor.

   On September 25, 2001, two senior executives of Newmont spoke with
Franco-Nevada's Co-Chief Executive Officers about the relative position of each
company in the industry, their shared belief in the value of gold and the
responsibility of gold executives to deliver value to shareholders. They also
spoke about the potential to "unlock value" through industry rationalisation
and consolidation. On September 25, 2001, Newmont and Franco-Nevada entered
into a mutual confidentiality agreement and the two companies began to exchange
due diligence information. In the case of Franco-Nevada, the information
exchanged did not include information Franco-Nevada had obtained concerning
Normandy in connection with the transaction by which Franco-Nevada had become a
substantial Normandy shareholder.

   On September 26, 2001, representatives of AngloGold met in Toronto with
senior management of Franco-Nevada concerning AngloGold's bid for Normandy.

   On September 28, 2001, four senior Newmont executives had a lengthy
conversation with senior representatives of Franco-Nevada about Franco-Nevada's
business plans, Normandy (in very general terms), Franco-Nevada's plans for
Echo Bay, industry rationalization and the potential for value creation, as
well as perceptions of relative asset values among Franco-Nevada and Newmont.

   On September 30, 2001, Mr. Murdy had a meeting with Mr. Seymour Schulich,
Co-Chief Executive Officer of Franco-Nevada, where the possibility of a
transaction was discussed, as well as possible approaches to Normandy.

   At the beginning of October 2001, representatives of Newmont, Franco-Nevada
and Normandy attended the Mining Investment Forum (an annual conference for
gold investors held in Denver, Colorado) during which the various meetings and
discussions described below occurred.

                                      34



   On October 1, 2001, as a follow-up to the September 30th discussions,
Newmont senior executives met with Franco-Nevada's Co-Chief Executive Officers,
at which meeting Messrs. Schulich and Lassonde provided Newmont certain
materials prepared by Franco-Nevada's investment banker, National Bank
Financial, which described the merits of a possible three-way transaction
involving Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada. The executives also discussed
different potential strategies to approach Normandy.

   Also on October 1, 2001, representatives of Newmont met with Mr. Robert
Champion de Crespigny, Normandy's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, in
Denver. The meeting was arranged by Newmont at the request of representatives
of Franco-Nevada. Prior to this meeting, Normandy was not made aware of the
proposed September 11th meeting or of any of the subsequent meetings and
conversations involving Franco-Nevada and Newmont prior to the October 1st
meeting. Mr. Murdy began the October 1st meeting by stating that Newmont was
interested in exploring the possibility of a three-way transaction involving
Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada. At that meeting, Mr. Champion de Crespigny
indicated that while the AngloGold bid represented a premium to Normandy's
currently depressed stock price, it was his preliminary view that it did not
reflect Normandy's fair value if compared with the value offered by Barrick
Gold Corporation for Homestake Mining Company (the most recent comparable
transaction, in his view). He further indicated that Normandy's board had not
yet made any recommendation to Normandy shareholders with respect to the
AngloGold bid. Mr. Champion de Crespigny indicated that Normandy's board would
honor its fiduciary responsibilities should another qualified bidder express an
interest in Normandy, but the board was not then soliciting other bids, nor was
it then prepared to permit due diligence.

   On October 2, 2001, Mr. Murdy and Mr. W. Durand Eppler, head of Newmont's
corporate development group, again met with Normandy's Chief Executive Officer.
During this meeting, they described Newmont's desire to be the industry leader.
They expressed a potential interest in pursuing a transaction with Normandy,
but made it clear that Newmont was not making an offer and that Newmont would
only consider making an offer if it had the opportunity to undertake due
diligence. No decisions were reached at the conclusion of the meeting but Mr.
Champion de Crespigny emphasized that any Newmont proposal would need to be at
a substantial premium to the current AngloGold bid and provided an indicative
pricing hurdle that any Newmont proposal would need to pass. In a separate
meeting with Mr. Lassonde, Newmont was advised that a bid for Normandy would
have to be at a substantial premium to the AngloGold offer before the board of
directors of Franco-Nevada would have an interest in pursuing a transaction
involving its shares in Normandy.

   On October 3rd and October 4th (following Newmont's understanding of Mr.
Champion de Crespigny's positions as raised at the October 2nd meeting),
members of the senior management of Newmont, Franco-Nevada and Normandy engaged
in preliminary discussions regarding a possible combination of the three
companies and how that transaction could be structured. During these
discussions, representatives of Franco-Nevada and Newmont also addressed the
advantages and general terms of a potential transaction between Franco-Nevada
and Newmont and between Normandy and Newmont. Newmont indicated that it was not
prepared to consider a transaction that was not structured as an acquisition by
Newmont of Normandy and Franco-Nevada, and Newmont indicated a strong desire
for an all stock transaction. In addition, Newmont noted that as part of any
transaction involving Newmont and Normandy, Newmont would require a binding
commitment with respect to Franco-Nevada's shares in Normandy as well as a
recommendation from the Normandy board regarding the proposed transaction. As a
result of these discussions, Newmont determined that it would have to undertake
a due diligence investigation of Franco-Nevada before it would be prepared to
consider a transaction that would involve all three companies.

   During the week of October 8th, Newmont and Franco-Nevada commenced their
respective due diligence investigations of each other. At that time, Newmont
undertook due diligence in Reno and Toronto but was not provided with access to
the due diligence that Franco-Nevada had done in connection with its investment
in Normandy. In addition, representatives of Franco-Nevada and National Bank
Financial met with Newmont management and representatives from JP Morgan to
conduct due diligence on Newmont. Due diligence continued through the week of
October 15th and thereafter.

                                      35



   Also during the week of October 8th, representatives of Normandy met in
Denver with representatives of Newmont and assisted Newmont in better
understanding Normandy, its business and its operations.

   On October 12, 2001, members of Newmont's and Franco-Nevada's senior
management, together with financial advisors from National Bank Financial and
JP Morgan, met in Toronto to discuss further a possible transaction between
Newmont and Franco-Nevada in the context of an acquisition of Normandy by
Newmont. At this meeting, Newmont indicated its preliminary views with respect
to a possible range of exchange ratios for Franco-Nevada and noted that Newmont
was not prepared to consider a transaction involving Normandy and Franco-Nevada
that would result in more than 50% share dilution for Newmont. At this meeting,
no indication was given to Franco-Nevada of Newmont's transaction or bidding
strategy for Normandy. On the basis of these meetings, the parties determined
to continue discussions and to develop more specific terms for the proposed
business combination.

   Late in the week of October 15, 2001, Franco-Nevada senior management met
with representatives of Newmont in Denver to discuss due diligence, integration
and employment issues in connection with a possible transaction. During these
meetings, Newmont explored the commitment of Franco-Nevada's management to a
possible transaction. Representatives of Franco-Nevada continued their due
diligence investigation of Newmont and Franco-Nevada retained CIBC World
Markets to assist Franco-Nevada in its ongoing due diligence investigation of
Newmont.

   On October 17th, outside counsel to Newmont provided internal counsel to
Normandy a draft form of mutual confidentiality agreement, which was dated
October 18th and was discussed by the parties on October 18th and 19th.

   On October 19th, Newmont's board of directors was briefed regarding the
possibility of a transaction and determined that it was appropriate for
management to continue discussions with Franco-Nevada and initiate further
discussions with Normandy. Following the board meeting, Mr. Murdy contacted Mr.
Champion de Crespigny to advise him of the outcome of the Newmont board meeting
and to outline preliminary views regarding transaction structure, relative
values and the terms on which Newmont might be prepared to pursue a transaction
for Normandy. Mr. Murdy indicated Newmont's willingness to pursue a potential
transaction that would offer Normandy shareholders a significant premium to the
offer from AngloGold, provided that Newmont was given the opportunity to
conduct due diligence on Normandy and that due diligence confirmed Newmont's
preliminary views on value. Following these conversations, the parties executed
a mutual confidentiality agreement dated October 18, 2001, that had previously
been provided to Normandy by Newmont and previously been discussed between the
parties.

   On October 22, 2001, the board of directors of Franco-Nevada engaged in a
lengthy discussion as to the potential merits of a business combination with
Newmont and Normandy and received the preliminary results of management's due
diligence investigation and other input from National Bank Financial.

   Newmont's due diligence team for Normandy began work in Australia on October
22, 2001 and continued working through mid-November. On October 31, 2001
members of Newmont's senior management, together with financial and legal
advisors met with representatives of Normandy, Macquarie Bank and Allens,
Arthur Robinson (Normandy's financial and legal advisers engaged in connection
with the AngloGold bid and whose engagements had been extended to encompass the
possible Newmont bid), to discuss prerequisites to Newmont making a bid for
Normandy. Later that day, Mr. Murdy met with the outside directors of the board
of Normandy on an informal basis. In addition, members of Newmont's senior
management engaged in discussions with members of Normandy's management team.

   On November 6, 2001, representatives of senior management of Franco-Nevada
and Newmont, together with their respective financial advisors and Newmont's
U.S. and Canadian counsel, met in Denver in an effort to negotiate significant
business issues and begin the process of drafting definitive documentation.
These discussions continued in New York through to the execution of definitive
documentation.

                                      36



   The Newmont board of directors met on November 9, 2001 to be briefed on the
status of the potential transactions. The Newmont board authorized management
to continue to pursue the potential transactions with Normandy and
Franco-Nevada. Following these discussions, the parties continued to work on
the terms of definitive agreements for Newmont and Franco-Nevada that would
provide for an exchange ratio of 0.80 shares of Newmont common stock for each
share of Franco-Nevada. Newmont and Franco-Nevada also began negotiations of
the terms of the lock-up agreement with respect to Franco-Nevada's shares in
Normandy and Newmont began negotiating agreements with Messrs. Schulich and
Lassonde with respect to their shares in Franco-Nevada. These negotiations
continued until the execution of definitive agreements.

   On November 12, 2001, the board of directors of Franco-Nevada received
presentations from senior management and from its financial advisors as to the
results of the due diligence examination of Newmont, a presentation from senior
management on the results of the negotiation of the Arrangement Agreement, a
presentation from National Bank Financial and reviewed the terms and conditions
of the Arrangement Agreement. Following discussion by the board of directors,
those directors who are management of Franco-Nevada (Seymour Schulich, Pierre
Lassonde and M. Craig Haase) withdrew from the meeting. The board of directors
of Franco-Nevada then voted to approve the proposed transactions with Newmont,
subject to satisfactory completion of the definitive agreements.

   Also on November 12, 2001, the Newmont board of directors met in New York to
consider the proposed transactions. At this meeting, the Newmont board was
advised of the results of Newmont's due diligence investigation of
Franco-Nevada and Normandy. Newmont's financial and legal advisors also
participated in the meeting. At the conclusion of this meeting, the Newmont
board authorized senior management to make a proposal to Normandy that Mr.
Murdy communicated to Mr. Champion de Crespigny on behalf of the Normandy board
of directors. Normandy was informed that Newmont would only proceed with a
transaction if the Normandy board agreed to recommend the transaction and if
Normandy would enter into a Deed of Undertaking which would provide for a
customary "break" fee payable upon the occurrence of certain specified events,
as well as a security bond with respect to the break fee. Following discussions
with members of the Normandy board of directors, Mr. Champion de Crespigny
informed Mr. Murdy that Newmont's proposal would not be sufficient to receive
the support and recommendation of the Normandy board of directors.

   Beginning around November 8, 2001, first drafts of the Deed of Undertaking
were presented to Normandy and its legal advisers to consider and negotiate in
anticipation of Newmont making a formal proposal to Normandy. Over the next
four days there was considerable intense negotiation over the terms of the Deed
of Undertaking and particularly the break fee which culminated in the
negotiation of the Second Deed of Undertaking to be entered into if Newmont
came forward with a proposal acceptable to Normandy's board.

   On November 13, the Newmont board of directors again met in New York and
authorized Mr. Murdy to make a new proposal to Normandy. Subject to the
Normandy board agreeing to support the transaction and agree to Newmont's
terms, the Newmont board of directors authorized the transactions and the
related agreements, including the Deed of Undertaking and the Second Deed of
Undertaking with Normandy, the Arrangement Agreement, the Normandy Lock-up
Agreement, the lock-up agreements and escrow agreements with Messrs. Lassonde
and Schulich, as well as related agreements and other related matters.

   Negotiations between Newmont and Normandy with respect to the Normandy Deeds
of Undertaking continued throughout November 13, 2001, New York time. As a
result of these negotiations, Newmont proposed an exchange ratio of 0.0385
shares of Newmont common stock plus a payment of an additional A$0.05 per share
if Newmont received acceptances for at least 90% of the Normandy shares and a
necessary ASIC modification. The Normandy board of directors then met to
consider the proposed transaction. Subject to their fiduciary duties, the
Normandy board of directors approved and agreed to recommend that Normandy
shareholders accept Newmont's offer and reject the offer from AngloGold. The
terms of the transactions were publicly announced in a joint press release
issued in New York on Wednesday, November 14, 2001, prior to the opening of
trading on the Toronto and New York Stock Exchanges. The transaction was
announced concurrently by Normandy in

                                      37



Australia at approximately 10:30 p.m. on November 14, 2001 (resulting in
Normandy's announcement being made available in Australia before the opening of
trading on November 15, 2001).

   On November 19, 2001, Normandy released its target statement in response to
the AngloGold offer. Normandy's target statement details reasons why Normandy
shareholders should reject the AngloGold offer and includes an Independent
Experts Report by Grant Samuel. This document may be obtained from Normandy.

   On November 29, 2001, AngloGold announced that it was increasing its offer
by adding a cash payment of A$0.20 per share (subject to AngloGold shareholder
approval) and declared that its offer was free of defeating conditions. In
response to the revised AngloGold bid, Newmont advised Mr. Champion de
Crespigny by telephone and issued a press release saying it was reviewing the
revised AngloGold offer and that Newmont would respond in due course.

   Following the announcement by AngloGold on November 29, 2001, Newmont
updated Franco-Nevada regarding Newmont's proposed acquisition of Normandy as
the acquisition of Franco-Nevada is conditional upon (among other things)
Newmont acquiring a relevant interest in at least 50.1% of the Normandy Shares,
although no approval by Franco-Nevada was required for Newmont to increase its
bid for Normandy.

   On December 3, 2001, Normandy issued a press release stating, among other
things: "Given the interest in Normandy from two bidders and the extension of
AngloGold's offer period, the Normandy board believes it is premature for it to
make any recommendation on whether or not to accept the revised AngloGold offer
at this time." Normandy advised its shareholders that they should do nothing
until they received a formal recommendation from the Normandy board, which they
indicated would be issued no later than December 13, 2001.

   At a board meeting held on December 3, 2001, the Normandy board of directors
asked Mr. Champion de Crespigny to offer to meet with both Mr. Murdy and
AngloGold's Chief Executive Officer over the next few days. As a result, on
December 4, 2001 and again on December 6, 2001, Mr. Murdy met with Mr. Champion
de Crespigny in Denver to discuss the circumstances involving Normandy and the
revised AngloGold bid, as well as Mr. Champion de Crespigny's views with
respect to a possible response by Newmont. On December 5, 2001, Mr. Champion de
Crespigny met with the Chief Executive Officer of AngloGold in New York.

   On Friday, December 7, 2001, the Newmont board of directors met to review
the situation and authorized Newmont management to increase its bid for
Normandy by A$0.35 in cash, subject to a recommendation by the Normandy board
of directors of the revised bid. Also on December 7, 2001, the board of
directors of Franco-Nevada met and indicated that they would support an
increase by Newmont in its bid for Normandy, although no approval by the
Franco-Nevada board was required for Newmont to proceed with its revised bid.
On December 8, 2001, Mr. Murdy telephoned Mr. Champion de Crespigny to indicate
that Newmont would be prepared to revise its bid for Normandy if such revised
bid would receive the recommendation of the Normandy board of directors.

   On December 9, 2001, in Australia, representatives of Newmont and Normandy
negotiated the terms of the Third Deed of Undertaking and on December 10, 2001,
the Normandy board of directors approved the revised transaction and the Third
Deed of Undertaking was executed. Newmont's revised bid of 0.0385 Newmont
common shares plus A$0.40 in cash for each Normandy share was publicly
announced on December 10, 2001 in Australia. Payment by Newmont of the cash
consideration was no longer conditioned upon achievement of 90% acceptance by
the Normandy shareholders. Subject to their fiduciary duties, the Normandy
board of directors approved and agreed to recommend that Normandy shareholders
accept Newmont's revised offer and therefore reject the revised offer from
AngloGold.

   On December 13, 2001, Normandy released its supplementary target statement
in response to the revised AngloGold offer. Normandy's supplementary target
statement details reasons why Normandy shareholders

                                      38



should reject the revised AngloGold offer and includes an analysis of the risks
of the revised AngloGold offer and the proposed Newmont offer. This document
may be obtained from Normandy.

   On December 20, 2001, Newmont lodged its bidder's statement with Normandy,
the Australia Securities and Investment Commission and the ASX and on December
21, 2001, Newmont announced that its bidder's statement had been dispatched to
Normandy shareholders outside the United States and Canada.

   On December 21, 2001, Newmont filed its Registration Statement on Form S-4
relating to the Normandy offer with the SEC.

   In connection with Newmont's bid for Normandy, AngloGold has made a number
of applications to the Australia Takeovers Panel, none of which have prevailed
to date.

REASONS FOR THE TRANSACTIONS

   We are undertaking the transactions in order to combine the businesses of
Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada to create what we believe will be the
premier global gold company. We have determined to pursue the acquisition of
each of Normandy and Franco-Nevada because we believe that the enhanced
benefits outlined below will arise from the combination of their respective
businesses. Our offer for Normandy is not conditional on the acquisition of
Franco-Nevada, but the acquisition is conditioned upon, among other things, our
acquisition of a relevant interest in at least 50.1% of Normandy. While we
fully expect that we will complete the acquisition of Franco-Nevada, it is
possible that the conditions to that acquisition will not be satisfied or
waived. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in completing the
acquisition of Franco-Nevada even if we acquire a relevant interest in at least
50.1% of Normandy ordinary shares on a fully diluted basis. If we do not
acquire Franco-Nevada, the expected benefits of the transaction and their
magnitude will be significantly reduced; however, there would still be benefits
realized from a combination of Newmont and Normandy. For an outline of the
benefits we expect to result from the combination of Newmont and Normandy alone
see "--Effect of a Transaction Without Franco-Nevada" on page 43.

   Our goals in pursuing each of these transactions are to:

  .  be the leading global gold investment vehicle, founded on a belief in
     gold's intrinsic, long-term value and its relevance to a balanced
     portfolio, and

  .  deliver consistent and superior stockholder returns.

   To achieve these goals, New Newmont will draw on the complementary operating
and management skills of each of Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada with the
intention of building a company with stable, profitable operations, a broad and
balanced portfolio of development opportunities, a strong balance sheet and
dedication to providing investors with the most leverage to a rising gold price.

   We will provide New Newmont a global operating base, a record of successful
project development and a strong investor base focused on returns from gold.
Normandy will contribute a significant portfolio of development projects and a
solid operating platform that is complementary to our global operations.
Franco-Nevada will contribute a valuable portfolio of mineral royalties and
investments, a strong balance sheet and a management team with a successful
track record in resource merchant banking.

   PRODUCTION AND RESERVES

   New Newmont will be the industry leader in gold production and gold reserves.

   New Newmont will have interests in 22 mines on five continents, including
preeminent land positions in world-class gold districts in Nevada, Australia
and Peru and a unique and diversified portfolio of development and exploration
projects.

                                      39



   New Newmont will have estimated combined 2001 production of 8.2 million
ounces (the largest in the industry by approximately 34%), including production
attributable to Franco-Nevada and Franco-Nevada's anticipated interest in Echo
Bay, a 52% increase over our estimated 2001 production of 5.4 million ounces.
Approximately 70% of the production (41% in the United States, 25% in Australia
and 5% in Canada) will be in countries rated "AAA" by Standard & Poor's local
currency credit rating. Since 1996 we have reduced our cash costs of production
from US$220 per ounce to US$183 per ounce (as estimated for 2001).

   New Newmont will have estimated combined reserves (based on latest public
filings) of 97 million ounces (the largest in the industry by approximately
23%), including reserves attributable to Franco-Nevada and Echo Bay, a 46%
increase over our reserves of 66.3 million ounces. Over 60% of New Newmont's
reserves (39% in the United States, 18% in Australia and 4% in Canada) will be
in countries rated "AAA" by Standard & Poor's local currency credit rating.

   Approximately 300,000 ounces of 2001 production, and approximately 2.2
million ounces of reserves, are attributable to Franco-Nevada's anticipated
interest in Echo Bay. As detailed in "The Companies--Business of New
Newmont--Royalty Business--Investments" on page 87, Franco-Nevada's acquisition
of an equity interest in Echo Bay is subject to the approval of Echo Bay
shareholders and is conditional on regulatory approvals.

   The size and diversification of these world-class assets and their balanced
political risk profile will better position New Newmont to develop its
attractive exploration properties around the world and will serve as an
excellent platform for future growth.

   EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT

   New Newmont will have several advanced gold projects in its portfolio of
assets. It will have the flexibility to optimise the development of these
projects based on project economics, political risk and free cash flow profiles.

   The following table sets out certain information with respect to New
Newmont's principal development projects:

   -----
   (a) Not included in Proven and Probable Reserves.

   New Newmont would have a 2002 exploration and research budget of
approximately US$75 million. It is expected that approximately 70% would be
applied to near-mine and regional exploration in existing districts, plus work
on advanced exploration and development projects in Indonesia and West Africa,
and approximately 30% on the worldwide search for new reserve opportunities
outside current operating districts, acceleration of select programs having
positive results, and on metallurgical research, operational optimization
studies and project evaluation.

                                      40



   POTENTIAL COST SAVINGS AND SYNERGIES

   New Newmont expects to realize from the combination of Newmont, Normandy and
Franco-Nevada approximately US$70 million to US$80 million in after-tax
synergies for the first full year, increasing to approximately US$80 million to
US$90 million a year by the second full year. Newmont has a strong track record
of delivering on synergy expectations based on previous acquisition experience.

   RATIONALIZATION OF CORPORATE OVERHEAD AND EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT
BUDGETS. New Newmont expects to generate significant savings by consolidating
various functions (including selected corporate services and establishing a
global exploration team), eliminating redundant functions and prioritizing
exploration efforts across the worldwide portfolio. It is expected that an
estimated US$30 million of synergies will be realized through an estimated
US$10 million benefit from exploration and development synergies and a further
estimated US$20 million in general and administrative savings.

   REALIZATION OF OPERATING EFFICIENCIES. New Newmont's mining operations will
benefit from the application of Newmont's Gold Medal Performance program, the
sharing of best operating practices across a large and diverse portfolio of
operations and eliminating duplicative activities. The Gold Medal Performance
program focuses on improving operating efficiencies, time management and
employee productivity, input and communication, and has been a key element in
Newmont's ability to reduce operating costs.

   REDUCTIONS IN OPERATIONS/PROCUREMENT COSTS, INTEREST SAVINGS AND TAX
BENEFITS. New Newmont will realize approximately US$15-20 million benefits from
general operating improvements and from economies of scale in purchasing,
operating supplies and capital equipment along with savings from the operation
of mines in close proximity to Newmont's existing mines. New Newmont will
benefit from increased operating efficiencies and increased economies of scale
in managing global procurement of equipment and operating supplies through
centralized and coordinated purchasing, including use of Newmont's electronic
marketplace connection, utilization of global supply agreements with key
vendors, and sharing of surplus equipment among a larger portfolio of
operations.

   The transactions will also allow a financial restructuring of New Newmont.
New Newmont will use its cash to repay current and maturing debt, resulting in
further interest savings. With a more modestly geared balance sheet and
substantially improved cash flows, the possibility exists for New Newmont to
improve, perhaps significantly, its credit rating thereby realizing savings in
financing costs.

   We also expect that New Newmont will be able to achieve substantial tax
savings through the utilization of the tax attributes of each of Newmont,
Normandy and Franco-Nevada.

   FINANCIAL STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY

   Following the combination of Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada, New
Newmont's net debt to net book capitalization will be approximately 23%,
compared to approximately 41% for Newmont on a stand-alone basis.

   New Newmont will benefit from the free cash flow generated by
Franco-Nevada's royalty stream and low cash cost operations that, together with
an improved balance sheet, will provide New Newmont with the ability to pursue
growth while continuing to reduce overall debt.

   New Newmont will help manage financial risk by preserving and growing
Franco-Nevada's royalty business, which will serve as a natural hedge in the
event of a low gold price environment. New Newmont will also capitalize on the
investment skill and expertise of Franco-Nevada's management through a merchant
banking unit, which is expected to have the opportunity for growth by taking
advantage of our processing technologies and the New Newmont's vast land
package.

                                      41



   The size and scope of New Newmont's holdings and the strength of management
will afford a significant opportunity for strategic industry rationalization.
If 100% of Normandy is acquired, New Newmont will review opportunities to
further rationalize its asset base through the consolidation of separately held
and managed assets and the sale or disposal of lower margin or non-core
operations.

   LEVERAGE TO GOLD PRICE

   We have a strong belief in the long-term value of gold. New Newmont intends
to continue Newmont's "no-hedging" philosophy, creating the gold industry's
largest unhedged, uncommitted reserve base of approximately 85 million ounces.
The largely unhedged reserve base will offer shareholders the opportunity to
benefit from New Newmont's substantial leverage to gold (although this strategy
also increases the exposure to a fall in the gold price). New Newmont's annual
pre-tax cash flow is estimated to increase by US$162 million for every US$25
per ounce increase in the price of gold (this is the largest exposure in the
industry by approximately 80%). Over time, New Newmont plans to
opportunistically unwind the current Normandy hedge book (currently at 10.4
million ounces, exclusive of TVX Normandy) to further its upside potential from
increases in the price of gold.

   BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND MANAGEMENT

   New Newmont's Board of Directors will initially consist of 17 members,
including the current 12 directors of Newmont, the two Co-Chief Executive
Officers of Franco-Nevada (Messrs. Seymour Schulich and Pierre Lassonde), one
additional nominee from the board of Franco-Nevada, and two nominees from the
board of Normandy. Mr. Champion de Crespigny will be invited to fill one of the
Normandy positions. Wayne W. Murdy will serve as Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of New Newmont and Pierre Lassonde will serve as its President.

   New Newmont's combined management expects to employ best practices and
personnel, focusing on core mining operations, reducing costs and applying the
latest innovations and technology to increase cash flows from operations and
effectively develop new opportunities. The combined management of the three
companies will bring an array of expertise and skills to New Newmont, such as:

  .  GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT. Newmont's and Normandy's strength in global operations
     and mine development and Newmont's gold processing technology skills.

   . MERCHANT BANKING. Franco-Nevada's corporate development skills and
     expertise in the management of royalty assets.

   . MERGER INTEGRATION. Newmont's proven ability to successfully integrate
     acquisitions and deliver synergies on schedule.

   GROWTH

   Newmont intends to use its experience in the discovery, evaluation,
development and operation of large, sophisticated mining operations to:

  .  Continually optimize returns from existing core operations.

  .  Pursue rational and effective development of Normandy's portfolio of
     development projects.

  .  Enhance and grow its operations and project pipeline through strategic and
     opportunistic high-quality asset and equity acquisitions, and aggressive,
     worldwide exploration.

  .  Maintain a geographically and politically diverse group of mining
     operations.

                                      42



   MARKET LIQUIDITY

   New Newmont will have significant capital market scale, providing global
trading liquidity to investors. With an expected equity value of approximately
US$8 billion, and listings on the NYSE and expected listings on the ASX and
TSE, New Newmont investors will benefit from enhanced trading volume, expected
to be the largest in the gold sector with approximately US$62 million in
average daily trading volume (based on historic trading of Newmont, Normandy
and Franco-Nevada) and increased stockholder diversity. New Newmont will also
be a member of the S&P 500 index, one of the world's leading trading indexes
and will pursue inclusion in key ASX indices as well.

   EFFECT OF A TRANSACTION WITHOUT FRANCO-NEVADA

   While Newmont believes that it will complete the acquisition of
Franco-Nevada, it is possible that the conditions to that acquisition will not
be satisfied. Consequently, it is possible that we may succeed in acquiring
Normandy but fail to acquire Franco-Nevada.

   Although the inability to acquire Franco-Nevada will prevent New Newmont
from realizing all of the benefits that would arise from a combination of the
three companies as described above, New Newmont would still expect to achieve
benefits from the combination of Newmont and Normandy alone. New Newmont would
still be the premier unhedged gold investment vehicle.

   COMBINED PRODUCTION AND RESERVE ESTIMATES WOULD NOT BE MATERIALLY DIFFERENT.
A combination of Newmont and Normandy alone would not result in material
changes to the production and reserve figures set forth in "The
Companies--Business of New Newmont--Pro Forma New Newmont Highlights" on page
73. New Newmont would still have had estimated combined 2001 production of 7.9
million ounces (the largest in the industry) and estimated combined reserves
(based on latest public filings) of 92.7 million ounces (again, the largest in
the industry), based on latest public filings.

   New Newmont would still have 22 mines on five continents and the industry's
largest land package. The absence of Franco-Nevada would not affect the balance
of the new company's political risk profile, with approximately 70% of combined
production and approximately 60% of its combined reserves in countries rated
AAA by Standard & Poor's local currency credit rating.

   New Newmont also would still expect to be a low cash cost producer. For the
twelve months ended September 30, 2001, the combined average cash cost of
production would have been US$173 per ounce.

   STRONG MANAGEMENT. If the Normandy transaction is completed but the
Franco-Nevada transaction is not, the Board of Directors initially will consist
of 14 members, including the current 12 directors of Newmont, and two nominees
from Normandy. Mr. Champion de Crespigny will be invited to fill one of the
Normandy positions. Wayne W. Murdy will serve as Chairman, President and Chief
Executive Officer of the company.

   New Newmont would still draw on the complementary operating and management
skills of the two companies to build an integrated enterprise based on stable,
profitable operations, a broad and balanced portfolio of investment
opportunities, a sustainable balance sheet and dedication to providing
investors with the most leverage to a rising gold price. Newmont's track record
of exploration success, technical expertise and project development matches
well with Normandy's success in identifying and operating properties in the
region, and the combined enterprise will benefit from the sharing of best
practices and knowledge among the two companies.

   MARKET LIQUIDITY. New Newmont would still have significant capital market
scale, and would still provide global trading liquidity for investors. With an
expected market equity value of approximately US$5.6 billion, and listings on
the NYSE and ASX, investors in New Newmont would still benefit from enhanced
trading volume and increased stockholder diversity. New Newmont would also be a
member of the S&P 500 index and would pursue inclusion in key ASX indices.

                                      43



   CAPITAL STRUCTURE AND FINANCIAL FLEXIBILITY. New Newmont would have a ratio
of net debt to book capitalization of approximately 39% compared to
approximately 41% for Newmont on a stand-alone basis. Absent the acquisition of
Franco-Nevada, New Newmont would not have the benefit of Franco-Nevada's
royalty income stream or cash balance and would have a substantial amount of
debt. It is unlikely, without Franco-Nevada, that New Newmont would be able to
pursue its growth objectives as aggressively, or be able to immediately improve
its credit rating to the same extent as if both Normandy and Franco-Nevada are
acquired.

   We expect that New Newmont would focus on improving its financial strength
and flexibility by taking advantage of the new company's scale, broad project
portfolio and global operating experience to reduce its cash costs of
production and increase free cash flow from operations. It also would focus
attention on rationalizing its asset base and disposing of non-core assets.
Cash raised as part of that process and from operations would be used to
further reduce the debt of New Newmont.

   POTENTIAL COST SAVINGS AND SYNERGIES. Synergies with respect to the
rationalization of corporate overhead and exploration and development budgets,
operating efficiencies and reductions in procurement costs would remain largely
unaffected by the absence of Franco-Nevada. The ability of New Newmont to repay
debt and realize interest savings would be significantly reduced. Further, most
of the tax savings could not be achieved, as most of the tax synergies are
attributable to the combination of the three companies.

   New Normandy would expect to realize approximately US$40 million to US$45
million in after tax synergies in the first full year, increasing to US$45
million to US$50 million a year by the end of the second full year. The
synergies would come primarily from rationalization of corporate overhead and
exploration and development budgets, rationalization of operating efficiencies
and reductions in procurement costs. Again, Newmont has a strong track record
of delivering on synergies.

   LEVERAGE TO GOLD PRICE. The absence of Franco-Nevada would not change
Newmont's belief in the long-term value of gold or its desire to continue
Newmont's "no-hedging" philosophy. Without Franco-Nevada, New Normandy would
still have the industry's largest unhedged reserve base of approximately 83
million ounces, and it would still propose to opportunistically unwind
Normandy's hedge book over time, giving shareholders the same opportunity to
benefit from the company's substantial leverage to gold.

RECOMMENDATION OF THE NEWMONT BOARD OF DIRECTORS

   At its meeting on November 13, 2001, after due consideration, the Newmont
board of directors unanimously:

  .  determined that (1) it was advisable for Newmont to enter into the
     agreements providing for the transactions, to enter into the merger
     agreement and to amend its restated certificate of incorporation and (2)
     the transactions, the merger agreement and the amendment are advisable,
     fair to and in the best interests of Newmont stockholders;

  .  approved the agreements providing for the transactions, including the
     arrangement agreement with Franco-Nevada and the deeds of understanding
     with Normandy, the merger agreement and the amendment to the restated
     certificate of incorporation;

  .  approved the proposal to adjourn the special meeting, if necessary, to
     permit further solicitation of proxies; and

  .  recommended that the Newmont stockholders vote for the adoption of the
     merger agreement, the approval of the amendment, the approval of the
     issuance of the shares of common stock in connection with the completion
     of the transactions and the proposal to adjourn the meeting, if necessary.

   In making these determinations and recommendations, and in approving the
agreements and the amendment, the Newmont board of directors consulted with
Newmont management as well as its outside legal counsel and financial advisors,
and considered the matters set forth above under "Reasons for the Transactions".

                                      44



   All business combinations, including the transactions, also include certain
risks and disadvantages. The material potential risks and disadvantages to
Newmont stockholders identified by the Newmont board of directors and
management in considering the merger include the following:

  .  the time and resources required to complete the transactions;

  .  the possibility that Newmont might not succeed in completing one or both
     of the transactions;

  .  the other opportunities and/or transactions that might need to be forgone
     as result of the proposed transactions;

  .  the difficulties and complexities inherent in combining and integrating
     the three companies and the potential distraction to management; and

  .  the risk that the benefits sought from the transactions, due to the
     matters described under "Risk Factors" and other factors, might not be
     fully achieved.

   The Newmont board of directors believed and continues to believe that these
potential risks and disadvantages are outweighed by the potential benefits
anticipated result from the merger.

   This discussion of the factors considered by the Newmont board of directors
is not intended to be exhaustive. Because of the wide variety of factors
considered in connection with its evaluation of the merger, the Newmont board
of directors did not find it practicable to, and did not, quantify, rank or
otherwise attempt to assign relative weights to the specific factors considered
in reaching its conclusions. In addition, individual directors may have given
different weights to different factors.

   THE NEWMONT BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE FOR
ADOPTION OF THE MERGER AGREEMENT, FOR THE AMENDMENT OF OUR RESTATED CERTIFICATE
OF INCORPORATION, FOR THE ISSUANCE OF SHARES OF HOLDCO OR NEWMONT COMMON STOCK,
AS THE CASE MAY BE, IN CONNECTION WITH THE TRANSACTIONS AND FOR THE ADJOURNMENT
OF THE MEETING, IF NECESSARY, TO PERMIT THE SOLICITATION OF FURTHER VOTES IN
FAVOR OF THESE PROPOSALS.

REGULATORY MATTERS

   HSR FILINGS. Under the HSR Act, and the rules promulgated under the HSR Act
by the Federal Trade Commission (or "FTC"), the transactions may not be
consummated until notifications and certain information have been given to the
Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice (or "Antitrust
Division") and the FTC and the applicable waiting period has expired or been
terminated. The waiting period expires thirty calendar days after a complete
filing made under the HSR Act unless either the FTC or the Antitrust Division
requests additional information prior to the expiration of the waiting period
or earlier terminates the waiting period earlier. On November 28, 2001, we
filed a Premerger Notification and Report Form with the Antitrust Division and
the FTC in connection with our offer for Normandy shares. On December 21, 2001,
the applicable waiting period following the filing was terminated early by the
FTC. On November 28, 2001, we and Franco-Nevada filed a Premerger Notification
and Report Form in connection with our acquisition of Franco-Nevada. The
applicable waiting period for that filing will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York
City time, on December 28, 2001, unless the waiting period is earlier
terminated or extended.

   The Antitrust Division and the FTC frequently scrutinize the legality under
the antitrust laws of transactions such as the offer and the arrangement. At
any time before or after delivery of Newmont shares (in the form of shares of
Newmont common stock or Newmont Clearing House Electronic Subregister System
depositary interests (CDIs) under the offer, the Antitrust Division or the FTC
could take whatever action under the antitrust laws as it deems necessary or
desirable in the public interest, including seeking to enjoin the delivery of
Newmont shares pursuant to the transactions, seeking the divestiture of
Normandy shares (including Normandy shares represented by Normandy ADSs)
acquired by us pursuant to the offer or seeking the divestiture of

                                      45



substantial assets of us and Normandy. Private parties and state attorneys
general may also bring legal action under federal or state antitrust laws under
some circumstances. Based upon an examination of information available relating
to the businesses in which we, Normandy Franco-Nevada and each of our
respective subsidiaries are engaged, it is not believed that the offer will
violate U.S. antitrust laws. Nevertheless, there can be no assurance that a
challenge to the transactions on antitrust grounds will not be made or, if a
challenge is made, what the result would be.

   COMPETITION ACT (CANADA). Under the Competition Act (Canada) (the
"Competition Act"), certain transactions involving the acquisition of voting
shares of a corporation that carries on an operating business in Canada require
the parties to notify the Commissioner of Competition (the "Commissioner")
prior to the completing their proposed transaction. If a transaction is subject
to the notification requirements (a "Notifiable Transaction"), notification
must be made either on the basis of a short-form filing (in respect of which
there is a 14-day statutory waiting period) or a long-form filing (in respect
of which there is a 42-day statutory waiting period). Where, however, the
Commissioner is satisfied by the parties to a proposed transaction that there
would not be sufficient grounds to challenge the transaction, the Commissioner
may issue an advance ruling certificate (an "ARC") which exempts the
transaction from the notification requirements.

   A Notifiable Transaction may not be completed until the applicable statutory
waiting period has expired or an ARC has been issued. However, the
Commissioner's review of a Notifiable Transaction may take longer than the
statutory waiting period, in which case, the parties may be asked to delay
completion of the Notifiable Transaction until the review is completed and the
Commissioner has determined his position. Upon completion of the review, the
Commissioner may decide to (i) challenge the Notifiable Transaction, if the
Commissioner concludes that it is likely to substantially lessen or prevent
competition, and ultimately seek an order of the Competition Tribunal (a)
prohibiting the completion of the Notifiable Transaction on an interim or
permanent basis if the parties insist on proceeding with it without addressing
the concerns of the Commissioner, (b) requiring the divestiture of shares or
assets or the dissolution of the Notifiable Transaction, if it has been
completed, or (c) with the consent of the person against whom the order is
directed, requiring that person to take any other action; (ii) issue a
"no-action" letter stating that the Commissioner does not intend, at such time,
to make an application to the Competition Tribunal for an order as described in
paragraph (i); or (iii) issue an ARC stating that there are not sufficient
grounds in respect of the proposed transaction to apply to the Competition
Tribunal. Where an ARC is issued and the Notifiable Transaction to which the
ARC relates is substantially completed within one year after the ARC is issued,
the Commissioner cannot seek an order of the Competition Tribunal in respect of
the Notifiable Transaction solely on the basis of information that is the same
or substantially the same as the information on the basis of which the ARC was
issued.

   We have filed a request for an ARC with the Commissioner with respect to
both the acquisitions of Normandy and Franco-Nevada.

   INVESTMENT CANADA ACT (CANADA). Under the Investment Canada Act (the
"Investment Act"), certain transactions involving the acquisition of control of
a Canadian business by a non-Canadian are subject to review and cannot be
implemented unless the Minister responsible for the Investment Act (the
"Minister") is satisfied that the transaction is likely to be of net benefit to
Canada. If a transaction is subject to the review requirement (a "Reviewable
Transaction"), an application for review must be filed with the Director of
Investments appointed under the Investment Act prior to the Implementation of
the Reviewable Transaction. The Minister is then required to determine whether
the Reviewable Transaction is likely to be of net benefit to Canada taking into
account, among other things, certain factors specified in the Investment Act
and any written undertakings that may have been given by the applicant. The
Investment Act contemplates an initial review period of 45 days after filing;
however, if the Minister has not completed the review by that date, the
Minister may unilaterally extend the review period by a further 30 days (or
such longer period as may be agreed to by the applicant) to permit completion
of the review.

                                      46



   The prescribed factors of assessment to be considered by the Minister
include, among other things, the effect of the investment on the level and
nature of economic activity in Canada (including the effect on employment,
resource processing, utilization of Canadian products and services and
exports), the degree and significance of participation by Canadians in the
acquired business, the effect of the investment on productivity, industrial
efficiency, technological development, product innovation and product variety
in Canada, the effect of the investment on competition within any industry in
Canada, the compatibility of the investment with national industrial, economic
and cultural policies (taking into consideration corresponding provincial
policies), and the contribution of the investment to Canada's ability to
compete in world markets. If the Minister determines that he or she is not
satisfied that a Reviewable Transaction is likely to be of net benefit to
Canada, the Reviewable Transaction may not be implemented.

   Because the arrangement is a Reviewable Transaction, we filed an application
for review with the Director of Investments on December 21, 2001. The Minister
has not yet completed the review of the Arrangement. The obligations of
Franco-Nevada and us to consummate the arrangement are subject to the condition
that the Minister has been satisfied, or deemed to have been satisfied, on
terms and conditions satisfactory to Franco-Nevada and us that the transaction
is of net benefit to Canada.

   AUSTRALIAN FOREIGN ACQUISITIONS AND TAKEOVERS ACT. Under the Foreign
Acquisitions and Takeovers Act 1975 (Cth) of Australia, we must notify the
Foreign Investment Review Board (or "FIRB"), which acts on behalf of the
Treasurer of Australia, before we acquire more than 15% of Normandy. The
Treasurer may prohibit the acquisition, if he considers that it would be
contrary to the national interest. The Treasurer must decide within 30 days
whether he has any objection to the acquisition, or extend the time for making
a decision by up to a further 90 days. The notification was lodged with FIRB on
December 7, 2001; hence, the initial period for a decision will expire on
January 6, 2002.

   ADDITIONAL ANTITRUST APPROVALS. We and Normandy conduct operations in a
number of other jurisdictions where regulatory filings or approvals may be
required in connection with the offer. We have made or will make antitrust
filings with the relevant authorities in Brazil. We are currently in the
process of reviewing whether any other filings will be required or advisable in
other jurisdictions, and currently intend to make the appropriate regulatory
filings and applications if it is determined that such filings are required or
advisable.

INTERESTS OF CERTAIN PERSONS IN THE TRANSACTIONS

  INTERESTS OF NEWMONT DIRECTORS AND EXECUTIVE OFFICERS

   Some of our executives and directors have interests in the transactions that
are or may be considered different from or in addition to the interests of our
stockholders generally. Our board was aware of these interests when it approved
the merger agreement and the merger. We summarize below the material interests
of our executive officers and directors.

   At the effective time of the merger, each option or deferred stock award
with respect to a number of shares of Newmont common stock held by an executive
officer or director will be converted into a option or deferred stock award
with respect to the same number of shares of Holdco common stock, subject to
the terms of the plan and agreement under which the option or award was
granted. As of  . , 2002, our executive officers and directors held options to
purchase  .  shares of Newmont common stock and deferred stock awards with
respect to  .  shares of Newmont common stock. The terms of these options and
deferred stock awards will not change as a result of the merger or the
transactions.

  INTERESTS OF CERTAIN NORMANDY DIRECTORS AND EXECUTIVE OFFICERS

   If the acquisition of Normandy is completed, Robert J. Champion de Crespigny
will be invited to join New Newmont's board of directors. If he accepts the
position, he will be entitled to the fees and benefits to

                                      47



which directors of New Newmont will be entitled. In connection with Mr.
Champion de Crespigny's proposed appointment to the board of New Newmont, it
has been proposed that Mr. Champion de Crespigny agree to a voluntary escrow of
Newmont CDIs which are issued to him under our offer for Normandy shares for a
maximum period of two years from the issue date.

   See "Other Matters Relating to the Transactions--Champion de Crespigny
Escrow Agreement."

  INTERESTS OF FRANCO-NEVADA DIRECTORS AND EXECUTIVE OFFICERS

   Certain officers and directors and Franco-Nevada have interests in the
transactions that are different from those of Franco-Nevada shareholders
generally.

   Seymour Schulich, Pierre Lassonde and seven other executives (collectively,
the "executives") have employment agreements which have a term of five years
and are automatically renewed annually. Franco-Nevada has the right by notice
to the executive to terminate each executive's agreement at any time after the
fifth anniversary of each agreement. Franco-Nevada also has the right to
replace each agreement after the 14th month following a change of control
provided the benefits of the new agreement are equal to or better than those in
the agreement. On termination of the executive after a change of control and
before the third anniversary of a change of control, Franco-Nevada must pay the
executive the accrued amount of the executive's latest annual salary plus the
last bonus to the date of termination as well as a termination payment (unless
the executive is terminated for cause). The termination payment for both
Seymour Schulich and Pierre Lassonde is US$750,000, and for the other
executives ranges from C$100,000 to C$1,000,000. Under the agreements and
Franco-Nevada's stock option plan, following a change of control all stock
options held by the executives (other than Mr. Schulich) prior to a change of
control become fully vested and must be exercised prior to the second
anniversary of a change of control. Seymour Schulich does not hold any stock
options.

   If the acquisition of Franco-Nevada is completed, Seymour Schulich and
Pierre Lassonde will become directors of New Newmont and will be entitled to
the fees and benefits to which directors of New Newmont will be entitled. If
the acquisition is completed, Pierre Lassonde will become the President of New
Newmont, Seymour Schulich will become Chairman of the merchant banking
subsidiary of New Newmont and other executive officers of Franco-Nevada may
become executive officers of New Newmont or the merchant banking subsidiary of
New Newmont. As of this date, the terms of Mr. Lassonde's employment by New
Newmont and the terms of Mr. Schulich's employment by the merchant banking
subsidiary of New Newmont have not been determined. See "Other Matters Relating
to the Transactions--Schulich and Lassonde Lock-Up and Escrow Agreements."

   The directors and officers of Franco-Nevada do not own any shares of Newmont
common stock or any Normandy shares.

MANAGEMENT AND OPERATIONS AFTER THE TRANSACTIONS.

   New Newmont's Board of Directors will initially consist of 17 members,
including the current 12 directors of Newmont, the two Co-Chief Executive
Officers of Franco-Nevada (Messrs. Seymour Schulich and Pierre Lassonde), one
additional nominee from the board of Franco-Nevada, and two nominees from the
board of Normandy. Mr. Champion de Crespigny will be invited to fill one of the
Normandy positions. Wayne W. Murdy will serve as Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of New Newmont and Pierre Lassonde will serve as its President.

   If the Normandy transaction is completed but the Franco-Nevada transaction
is not, New Newmont's board of directors will consist of 14 members, including
the current 12 directors of Newmont and two nominees from Normandy. Mr.
Champion de Crespigny will be invited to fill one of the Normandy positions.
Mr. Murdy will serve as Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of New
Newmont.

                                      48



ACCOUNTING TREATMENT

   Under U.S. GAAP, we will account for the acquisition of Normandy and
Franco-Nevada using the purchase method of accounting.

LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

   AngloGold Limited has made an application to the Takeovers Panel in
Australia for certain orders in relation to our proposed bid for Normandy, on
the basis that we may give Franco-Nevada and its shareholders benefits that are
not offered to other Normandy shareholders, arising out of the agreements
governing the transactions.

   On December 12, 2001, the Takeovers Panel announced that it had declined
AngloGold's application for a declaration of unacceptable circumstance in
relation to our bid for Normandy.

   On December 13, 2001, AngloGold lodged an application for review of the
Takeovers Panel's decision. On December 20, 2001, the Takeovers Panel declined
AngloGold's application for review.

MATERIAL U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSEQUENCES OF THE TRANSACTIONS TO NEWMONT
STOCKHOLDERS

   The following general discussion summarizes the anticipated material U.S.
federal income tax consequences of the merger to holders of Newmont common
stock that exchange their Newmont common stock for New Newmont common stock in
the merger. This discussion addresses only those Newmont stockholders that hold
their Newmont common stock as a capital asset, and does not address all the
U.S. federal income tax consequences that may be relevant to particular Newmont
stockholders in light of their individual circumstances or to Newmont
stockholders that are subject to special rules, such as:

   . financial institutions;

   . mutual funds;

   . tax-exempt organizations;

   . insurance companies;

   . dealers in securities or foreign currencies;

   . traders in securities that elect to apply a mark-to-market method of
     accounting;

   . foreign holders;

   . persons that hold their shares as a hedge against currency risk or as part
     of a straddle, constructive sale or conversion transaction; or

   . holders that acquired their shares upon the exercise of Newmont stock
     options or otherwise as compensation.

   The following discussion is not binding on the Internal Revenue Service. It
is based upon the Internal Revenue Code, laws, regulations, rulings and
decisions in effect as of the date of this proxy statement/prospectus, all of
which are subject to change, possibly with retroactive effect. Tax consequences
under state, local and foreign laws and U.S. federal laws other than U.S.
federal income tax laws, are not addressed.

   Holders of Newmont common stock are strongly urged to consult their tax
advisors as to the specific tax consequences to them of the merger, including
the applicability and effect of U.S. federal, state and local and foreign
income and other tax laws in their particular circumstances. The parties have
structured the transaction so that it is anticipated that the merger will be a
reorganization for U.S. federal income tax purposes and/or that the merger,
taken together with the exchange of Normandy shares for shares of New Newmont
common stock and

                                      49



the exchange of Franco-Nevada common stock for New Newmont common stock will be
treated as an exchange described in Section 351 of the Internal Revenue Code.
Assuming the merger qualifies as a reorganization within the meaning of Section
368(a) of the Internal Revenue Code and/or an exchange described in Section 351
of the Internal Revenue Code, holders of Newmont common stock that exchange
their Newmont common stock solely for New Newmont common stock in the merger
will not recognize gain or loss for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Each
holder's aggregate tax basis in the New Newmont common stock received in the
merger will be the same as that holder's aggregate tax basis in the Newmont
common stock surrendered in the merger. The holding period of the New Newmont
common stock received in the merger by a holder of Newmont common stock will
include the holding period of Newmont common stock that the holder surrendered
in the merger.

   We expect that, like holders of Newmont common stock, holders of Newmont
$3.25 Convertible Preferred Stock will not recognize gain or loss for U.S.
federal income tax purposes as a result of the transaction. However, the U.S.
federal income tax consequences of the transaction to holders of $3.25
Convertible Preferred Stock depend on many factors, including whether (i) the
$3.25 Convertible Preferred Stock constitutes nonqualified preferred stock
within the meaning of Section 351(g) of the Internal Revenue Code, (ii) such
holders are treated as receiving nonqualified preferred stock in the
transaction, (iii) the merger qualifies as a reorganization within the meaning
of Section 368(a) of the Internal Revenue Code and (iv) the $3.25 Convertible
Preferred Stock remains as shares of Newmont Mining Corporation or is exchanged
for convertible preferred shares of Delta Holdco Corp. In general, nonqualified
preferred stock includes preferred stock with respect to which (i) the holder
has the right to require the issuer or a related person to redeem or purchase
the stock, (ii) the issuer or a related person is required to redeem or
purchase such stock, or (iii) the issue or a related person has their right to
redeem or purchase the stock and, as of the issue date, it is more likely than
not that such right will be exercised. Holders of $3.25 Convertible Preferred
Stock are strongly urged to consult their tax advisors as to the specific tax
consequences to them of the transaction, including the applicability and effect
of U.S. federal, state and local and foreign income and other tax laws in their
particular circumstances.

                                      50



                             THE MERGER AGREEMENT

   THE FOLLOWING IS A SUMMARY OF THE MATERIAL TERMS OF THE MERGER AGREEMENT, A
FORM OF WHICH IS ATTACHED AS APPENDIX A TO THIS DOCUMENT.

THE MERGER

   The merger agreement provides that Acquisitionco will merge with and into
Newmont, with Newmont continuing as the surviving corporation. Upon completion
of the merger, Holdco's name will be changed to "Newmont Mining Corporation."

MERGER CONSIDERATION

   Upon completion of the merger, each share of Newmont common stock, par value
$1.60, that is issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time
of the merger will be converted into one share of Holdco common stock, par
value $1.60 per share.

   If we complete the merger, pursuant to the merger agreement, we have the
option to:

   (1) leave outstanding the Newmont $3.25 convertible preferred stock, par
       value $5.00 per share, in which case the Newmont $3.25 convertible
       preferred stock will be convertible, pursuant to its terms, into shares
       of Holdco common stock; or

   (2) exchange the outstanding shares of Newmont $3.25 convertible preferred
       stock for shares of Holdco $3.25 convertible preferred stock having the
       same preferences and rights with respect to Holdco, as the Newmont $3.25
       convertible preferred stock has with respect to Newmont as of the date
       of the merger agreement.

   In either case, upon completion of the merger, the holders of convertible
preferred stock will be entitled to vote along with the holders of common stock
on all matters relating to Newmont (if we choose to leave outstanding the
Newmont $3.25 convertible preferred stock) or Holdco (if we effect the exchange
for Holdco $3.25 convertible preferred stock). If we convert our convertible
preferred shares of Holdco, the Holdco convertible preferred shares will vote
along with the Holdco common shares on an as-converted basis. In either case,
the aggregate voting power of the Holdco convertible preferred stock, as a
class, or the Newmont convertible preferred stock, as a class, will be
commensurate with the proportionate economic interest in Newmont of holders of
Newmont convertible preferred stock, as a class, immediately prior to the
completion of the merger.

   Absent non-payment of dividends, our $3.25 convertible preferred stock does
not currently have voting rights and will not obtain further voting rights if
we do not complete the merger.

TREATMENT OF NEWMONT STOCK OPTIONS

   As of the effective time of the merger, Holdco will assume each plan,
program or arrangement pursuant to which Newmont grants options, equity or
equity-based awards to its employees and may modify the plans, programs and
arrangements to provide that awards with respect to shares of Holdco common
stock may be granted by Holdco pursuant to the terms thereof after the merger.

CLOSING CONDITION

   Newmont's, Acquisitionco's and Holdco's obligations to complete the merger
are conditioned upon the adoption of the merger agreement by our stockholders.

TERMINATION

   We, Acquisitionco or Holdco may terminate the agreement before completion of
the merger for any reason, notwithstanding the adoption of the merger agreement
by our stockholders, by written notice to the non-terminating parties. When the
terminating party gives such notice, the merger agreement will be terminated
and there will be no liability under the merger agreement or on account of the
termination on the part of Newmont, Acquisitionco, Holdco or any of our
directors, officers, employees, agents or stockholders.

                                      51



                       PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE NEWMONT
                     RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION

   In connection with our proposed acquisition of Normandy and Franco-Nevada,
we currently intend to complete the restructuring contemplated by the merger
agreement, in which case, among other consideration, we will issue shares of
Holdco common stock to the stockholders of Normandy and Franco-Nevada pursuant
to the off-market bid and the arrangement agreement, respectively. However, in
the event the restructuring contemplated by the merger agreement is not
completed, we intend to complete the acquisitions regardless, in which case,
among other consideration, we will issue shares of Newmont common stock to the
stockholders of Normandy and Franco-Nevada. In order to do so, we must amend
our restated certificate of incorporation to increase the number of shares that
Newmont is authorized to issue.

   Under our existing restated certificate of incorporation, we are authorized
to issue up to 255 million shares of capital stock, of which 5 million shares
are allocated to Newmont preferred stock, par value $5 per share, and 250
million shares are allocated to Newmont common stock.

   Pursuant to the terms of our off-market bid and the arrangement agreement,
upon completion of the acquisition of Normandy and Franco-Nevada, we could be
required to issue up to approximately 198.8 million new shares of Newmont
common stock. After giving effect to these acquisitions, we could be required
to have issued and outstanding up to approximately 394.9 million shares of
Newmont common stock. Because this number exceeds the 250 million shares of
Newmont common stock that we are authorized to issue under our restated
certificate of incorporation, we must amend our restated certificate of
incorporation in order to be able to complete the acquisitions in the event
that the restructuring contemplated by the merger agreement is not completed.

   Our board of directors has approved an amendment to our restated certificate
of incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of Newmont common
stock from 250 million shares to 750 million shares. The proposed amendment
provides that the first paragraph of Article FOURTH of our restated certificate
of incorporation be amended to read in its entirety as follows:

   "The total number of shares of all classes of stock which the Corporation
   shall have authority to issue is 755,000,000 of which 5,000,000 shall be
   Preferred Stock (hereinafter called "Preferred Stock") of the par value of
   $5 per share and 750,000,000 shares shall be Common Stock (hereinafter
   called "Common Stock") of the par value of $1.60 per share."

   Our board of directors believes this amendment is necessary in order to
provide not only sufficient shares to complete the proposed acquisitions of
Normandy and Franco-Nevada in the event the restructuring contemplated by the
merger agreement is not completed, but also to have sufficient shares to
complete future acquisitions, or to effect any future stock split or stock
dividend.

   All shares of Newmont common stock, including those now authorized and those
that would be authorized under the proposed amendment to our restated
certificate of incorporation, would be equal in rank and have the same voting,
dividend and liquidation rights. No holders of Newmont common stock have or
will have preemptive rights.

   Our board of directors has determined that the increase in the authorized
shares of Newmont common stock is in the best interests of Newmont and
Newmont's stockholders and has declared the amendment advisable. THE NEWMONT
BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS THAT HOLDERS OF NEWMONT COMMON STOCK ENTITLED TO
VOTE ON THE PROPOSAL VOTE FOR THE APPROVAL OF THE AMENDMENT TO OUR RESTATED
CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION.

   The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares
of Newmont common stock entitled to vote on the proposal is required to approve
the amendment to our restated certificate of incorporation.

                          THE ACQUISITION OF NORMANDY

   DELTA ACQUISITION LLC, A DELAWARE LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY AND AN INDIRECT,
WHOLLY OWNED SUBSIDIARY OF NEWMONT, IS MAKING THE BID DESCRIBED IN THIS
SECTION. THEREFORE, UNLESS THE CONTEXT REQUIRES OTHERWISE, REFERENCES IN THIS
SECTION "THE ACQUISITION OF NORMANDY" TO "NEWMONT" (INCLUDING REFERENCES TO
WORDS SUCH AS "WE," "US" AND "OUR") AS THE ENTITY MAKING THE BID ARE REFERENCES
TO DELTA ACQUISITION LLC.

THE OFFER FOR NORMANDY SHARES

   To acquire Normandy, we are making an off-market bid for the ordinary shares
in the capital of Normandy. The consideration offered is 3.85 shares of Newmont
common stock for every 100 Normandy shares. In addition, we will pay A$0.40 for
each ordinary share of Normandy, or the U.S. equivalent of that amount for
holders outside Australia.

   Normandy shareholders who are located in the United States or are residents
in Canada will receive their share consideration in the form of Newmont common
stock. Normandy shareholders who are located outside the United States and are
not residents in Canada (with certain exceptions) will receive CDIs, which will
trade on ASX. We anticipate that ten Newmont CDIs will represent one share of
Newmont common stock. Holders of Newmont CDIs will participate fully in all
dividends, other distributions and entitlements declared by us in respect of
fully paid shares of Newmont common stock.

  OFFER PERIOD

   Unless the offer period is extended or the offer is withdrawn, the offer
will remain open for acceptance by holders of Normandy shares during the period
commencing on the date of the offer and ending at 7:00 p.m., Sydney time, 3:00
a.m., New York City time, on February 15, 2002. Subject to applicable law, we
may extend the offer period. In addition, if, within the last seven days of the
offer period: the offer is varied (I.E., amended) to increase the consideration
offered, or our voting power in Normandy increases to more than 50.1%, then, in
accordance with applicable laws, the offer period will be mandatorily extended
so that it ends 14 days after that event.

   In addition, if the offer period is not extended under the terms described
above, in accordance with U.S. federal securities laws, we will extend the
offer period if we vary the offer to decrease the consideration offered, within
10 business days of the then scheduled expiration of the offer period, so that
the offer period will end 10 business days after the publication of this event.

   If the offer period is extended, we must give Normandy and every Normandy
shareholder written notice of the extension, so long as the extension is not an
extension of the offer period subsequent to the offer period being declared
unconditional in all respects, in which case we will only give notice to
Normandy shareholders who have not previously accepted the offer.

         Limited for an amount greater than A$20 million other than:

   It is a term of the offer that we may, subject to section 650F of the
Corporations Act, declare the offer and all other offers and all contracts
resulting from the acceptance of offers to be free from the conditions (or any
one or more of them or any part thereof) listed above. Any declaration made
must be made by us by notice in writing to Normandy.

                                      55



   In accordance with section 625(3) of the Corporations Act, the offer and all
other offers and all contracts that result from the acceptance of offers are
subject to the condition that:

  .  an application for admission to quotation of Newmont on ASX and of the
     shares of Newmont common stock on the NYSE will be made within seven days
     after the date when our bidder's statement is given to Normandy; and

  .  permission for admission to quotation of Newmont CDIs on ASX and for
     quotation of the shares of Newmont common stock on the NYSE will be
     granted no later than seven days after the end of the offer period.

   We will apply for the necessary quotations as soon as practicable in order
to satisfy this condition. The offer may not be declared free of this condition.

   The condition relating to the Australian Investment Review Board above is a
condition precedent to our acquisition of an interest (within the meaning of
those terms in the Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Act) in your Normandy
shares (including shares represented by Normandy ADSs). The other conditions
under that paragraph are conditions subsequent. The non-fulfillment of any
condition subsequent does not prevent a contract to sell Normandy shares
resulting from a Normandy shareholder's acceptance of our offer, but entitles
us by written notice to you, to rescind the contract resulting from the
acceptance of our offer.

   Subject to the provisions of the Corporations Act, we alone have the benefit
of the conditions in section (a) above and any breach or non-fulfillment of any
such conditions may be relied on only by us.

   The date specified for giving the notice referred to in section 630(3) of
the Corporations Act is  . , 2002, subject to extension in accordance with
section 630(2) of the Corporations Act if the offer period is extended in
accordance with the Corporations Act.

   If at the end of the offer period in respect of the conditions specified in
the first section above:

  .  we have not declared the offer and all other offers made by us under the
     bid and all contracts resulting from the acceptance of offers to be free
     from the conditions; and

  .  the conditions have not been fulfilled,

   then all contracts resulting from the acceptance of offers and all offers
   that have been accepted and from whose acceptance binding contracts have not
   yet resulted are void. In that event, we will, if a Normandy shareholder has
   accepted the offer:

          (1) return at the Normandy shareholder's risk his acceptance form
              together with all documents forwarded by the Normandy
              shareholders with that form to the address as shown in the
              acceptance form; or

          (2) if the Normandy shares are in a CHESS Holding, notify Securities
              Clearing House under the Securities Clearing House Business Rules
              that the contract resulting from the acceptance of the offer is
              avoided.

THE DEEDS OF UNDERTAKING

   FIRST DEED OF UNDERTAKING

   THE FOLLOWING IS A SUMMARY OF THE MATERIAL TERMS, NOT OTHERWISE DISCUSSED IN
THIS PROXY STATEMENT/PROSPECTUS, OF THE THREE DEEDS OF UNDERTAKING, TWO DATED
AS OF NOVEMBER 14, 2001 AND ONE DATED AS OF DECEMBER 10, 2001, BY AND BETWEEN
US AND NORMANDY, IN RELATION TO OUR OFF-MARKET BID FOR ALL THE NORMANDY SHARES
HELD BY PERSONS OTHER THAN FRANCO-NEVADA. THE DEEDS OF UNDERTAKING ARE ATTACHED
TO THIS DOCUMENT AS APPENDIX C.

                                      56



      (a) NON-SOLICITATION. Normandy may not, nor may it permit its
          subsidiaries to, nor may it authorize or permit any of its officers,
          directors or employees or require any investment banker, attorney or
          other advisor, agent or representative of Normandy or its
          subsidiaries to:

          (1) directly or indirectly solicit, initiate or encourage the making
              of (including by way of furnishing non-public information) any
              inquiries or proposals regarding a competing takeover proposal;

          (2) accept or enter into any agreement, arrangement or understanding
              with respect to a competing takeover proposal or directly or
              indirectly participate in any discussions or negotiations
              regarding or furnish to any person any information with respect
              to, or take any other action to facilitate any inquiries or the
              making of any proposal that constitutes, or may reasonably be
              expected to lead to, a competing takeover proposal; or

          (3) approve or recommend a competing takeover proposal.

          A "competing takeover proposal" is defined as any proposal or offer
          (not including the bid for Normandy by AngloGold as initially
          announced and constituted by AngloGold's bidder's statement dated
          October 16, 2001 and the supplementary bidder's statement dated
          November 1, 2001, but including any increase or proposed increase by
          AngloGold of the consideration offered under the AngloGold bid) with
          respect to any transaction that would, if completed substantially in
          accordance with its terms, result in any person or group of persons
          other than us and our subsidiaries acquiring (a) assets of Normandy
          and/or its subsidiaries that have, individually or in the aggregate,
          a market value exceeding 15% of the market value of all the assets of
          Normandy and its subsidiaries (taken as a whole) or (b) 25% or more
          of the voting shares of Normandy.

          The restrictions in (1) and (2) above do not prevent Normandy and the
          Normandy board from taking or refusing to take any action with
          respect to a bona fide competing takeover proposal, provided that the
          Normandy board has determined in good faith and acting reasonably
          after consultation with its financial advisors and outside legal
          counsel that the bona fide competing takeover proposal, which was not
          solicited, initiated or encouraged by Normandy in violation of (1)
          above and did not otherwise result from a breach or deemed breach of
          (1) or (2) above, is a superior takeover proposal.

          A "superior takeover proposal" is defined as a bona fide competing
          takeover proposal which the Normandy board has determined, acting
          reasonably and in good faith (after consulting its financial and
          legal advisors and considering all material aspects of the proposal
          and the party making that proposal), would, if consummated in
          accordance with its terms, be reasonably likely to result in a
          transaction more favorable to the holders of Normandy shares than our
          takeover bid.

          Normandy's obligations under these non-solicitation provisions do not
          restrict Normandy or the Normandy board from taking or failing to
          take actions where the Normandy board determines in good faith and
          acting reasonably after consulting its financial advisors and outside
          legal advisors that to take or fail to take such action constitutes,
          or would be likely to constitute, a breach of the fiduciary or
          statutory duties or obligations of the members of the Normandy board.

      (b) UNDERTAKING. Normandy must make a payment to us of A$38.33 million as
          compensation for our reasonable opportunity costs, reputational costs
          associated with a failed transaction and costs and expenses in
          connection with our proposed bid, if:

          (1) a competing takeover proposal is announced or open for acceptance
              and, pursuant to that proposal, the bidder acquires a relevant
              interest in more than 50% of all Normandy's shares and that
              proposal becomes free from any defeating conditions either before
              or after the end of the applicable offer period; or

                                      57



          (2) the Normandy board fails to recommend our takeover bid in
              Normandy's target statement in response to our takeover bid, or
              the board withdraws or modifies in a manner adverse to us a
              recommendation previously made in respect of our bid (or proposed
              bid) or enters into any agreement, arrangement or understanding
              to recommend or support, or recommends, a competing takeover
              proposal.

      Normandy is not obligated to make the payment if the following events
   occur, unless another person, including AngloGold, makes a competing
   takeover proposal which becomes free from any defeating conditions either
   before or after the end of the applicable offer period: (a) the terms and
   conditions of our bid when made are materially less favorable to Normandy
   shareholders than the terms and conditions of the bid specified in the
   announcement of our intention to make our bid made on November 14, 2001; (b)
   our stockholders vote against the resolution to approve the issue of our
   securities under our bid; or (c) our bid does not receive the required
   approval from the Treasurer of Australia on terms acceptable to us.

      (c) SECURITY BOND. Normandy must provide a security bond to us as
          security for its obligation to make the payment referred to above.
          The security bond has been delivered.

      (d) FACILITATION OF OFFER. Normandy agrees, in certain circumstances, to
          permit us to dispatch our bidder's statement within five days of the
          date it is sent to Normandy and to use best endeavors to distribute
          its target statement in response to our bid as soon as practicable.

      (e) NORMANDY WARRANTIES. Normandy makes certain representations and
          warranties to us in connection with a number of matters, including:

             (i) its share capital and authority to enter into the deed;

            (ii) the accuracy of information it has provided to us in
                     connection with our due diligence of Normandy;

    (iii) Normandy's conduct of its business; and

            (iv) the reserves and resources of the Normandy group.

      (f) ORDINARY COURSE OF BUSINESS. Normandy agrees, until the consummation
          of our bid to conduct its business in the ordinary course of business
          consistent with past practice.

   SECOND DEED OF UNDERTAKING

   If at any time before Normandy is due to make the payment to us required by
the first deed of undertaking, there is a challenge before a court or the
Australian Takeovers Panel concerning Normandy making the payment: (a) we will
not enforce or seek to enforce Normandy's obligation to make the payment (or
seek to recover the payment under Normandy's security bond) until the challenge
is finally determined; and (b) if, when a challenge to Normandy's making the
payment (whether it is brought before or after Normandy has made the payment to
us) is finally determined, Normandy is restrained from making the payment (or
any part of the payment), or if the making of the payment is determined to be
illegal or unlawful (other than for any purpose by a director or officer of
Normandy to obtain improper personal financial benefits), then we will not seek
to recover the payment (or, if applicable, part of the payment) or damages in
lieu of the payment against Normandy or any of its directors or officers, we
will not seek to exercise our rights under Normandy's security bond, and, if
the challenge was brought after Normandy has made the payment to us, we will
refund the payment to Normandy.

   We will not seek payment or recovery from Normandy, and will refund
Normandy's payment, under the circumstances outlined above as long as Normandy,
in consultation with us, takes all necessary actions to vigorously defend
against the challenge before the court or the Australian Takeovers Panel, seeks
to join us at our cost as a party to any proceeding in which the challenge is
made or brought and, at our discretion, initiates all

                                      58



appeal rights from a decision by a court or by the Australian Takeovers Panel
which has the effect or result of preventing the payment from being made to us.

   THIRD DEED OF UNDERTAKING

   On December 10, 2001, the parties to the first and second deeds of
undertaking agreed to amend the definition of "competing takeover proposal" to
clarify that the amendment of the AngloGold bid announced on November 29, 2001
was a "competing takeover proposal," and the reference to our takeover bid was
amended to refer to the takeover bid announced by us on November 14, 2001 as
amended by the announcement made by us on December 10, 2001. We also agreed
that we will not assert that the filing of any application to the Australian
Takeovers Panel by AngloGold prior to December 10, 2001 constituted a breach of
any condition to our takeover bid for Normandy.

FRANCO-NEVADA LOCK-UP AGREEMENT

   THE FOLLOWING IS A SUMMARY OF THE MATERIAL TERMS, NOT OTHERWISE DISCUSSED IN
THIS PROXY STATEMENT/PROSPECTUS, OF THE LOCK-UP AGREEMENT, DATED AS OF NOVEMBER

INC. (FOR PURPOSES OF THIS SUMMARY, FRANCO-NEVADA AND FRANCO-NEVADA MINING

          Normandy Shares (or any interest, securities convertible into, or

          shares), other than (a) with our prior consent or (b) pursuant to an

          its subsidiaries' directors, officers, employees, insiders,
          professional advisors, agents or other authorized representatives:
          (i) solicit, initiate, encourage or facilitate (including by way of
          furnishing non-public information) any inquiries or proposals
          regarding a competing takeover proposal; (ii) participate in any
          discussions or negotiations regarding any competing takeover
          proposal; (iii) approve or recommend any competing takeover proposal;
          or (iv) accept or enter any agreement, arrangement or understanding
          related to any competing takeover proposal, other than an acquisition
          transaction under the circumstances described in this section.
          Further, Franco-Nevada will immediately cease or cause to be
          terminated any existing discussions or negotiations with any person
          in respect of a competing proposal and shall not waive or vary any
          terms or conditions of any confidentiality or standstill agreement
          that it has with a person considering a competing proposal.

      (c) CALL NOTICE. At any time prior to Franco-Nevada making the payment
          referred to in (d) below, we have the right to notify Franco-Nevada
          (a "call notice") that we require it to sell the Franco-Nevada
          Normandy shares to us or any entity designated by us (subject to the
          Treasurer of Australia giving notice that it does not object to such
          acquisition, which condition relates only to such number of the
          Franco-Nevada Normandy shares which exceed, in number, 15% of
          Normandy's issued ordinary shares). The price at which the
          Franco-Nevada Normandy shares are to be purchased is 0.0385 of a
          Newmont common share (or of a common share of New Newmont that issues
          the shares into which the original Newmont shares are converted or
          for which they are exchanged in connection with the transactions
          contemplated by the plan of arrangement) per Normandy ordinary share.

      (d) NOTICE AND TERMINATION PAYMENT. If another party acquires a relevant
          interest in at least 50.1% of the Normandy shares calculated on a
          fully diluted basis (an "acquisition transaction"), Franco-

                                      59



          Nevada may at any time give notice of its intention to tender the
          shares pursuant to the acquisition transaction. Within four business
          days following receipt of Franco-Nevada's tender notice, we may
          deliver a call notice to Franco-Nevada. If we deliver the call notice
          and acquire the Franco-Nevada Normandy shares under these
          circumstances, we may not tender those shares into the acquisition
          transaction that gave rise to Franco-Nevada's entitlement to deliver
          the tender notice. In addition, for a period of two years from the
          date of the acquisition transaction, we may not, directly or
          indirectly, contract to sell, sell or otherwise transfer or dispose
          of any of the Franco-Nevada Normandy shares (or any interest,
          securities convertible into or derivative of) or any voting rights
          with respect to, any of those shares, other than with Franco-Nevada's
          prior written consent, provided that a transfer to a wholly owned
          subsidiary or New Newmont that acknowledges that it is bound by the
          above restrictions will not require such consent.

   If we do not deliver a call notice within four business days following the
delivery of Franco-Nevada's tender notice, Franco-Nevada must pay us a
termination payment of US$20 million, after which time Franco-Nevada must
irrevocably tender the Franco-Nevada Normandy shares to the acquisition
transaction.

   If, upon the occurrence of the acquisition transaction, Franco-Nevada does
not deliver a tender notice to us within 15 days, Franco-Nevada must pay us the
US$20 million termination payment on that date. In addition, for two years from
the date of the acquisition transaction, Franco-Nevada must not, directly or
indirectly, contract to sell, sell or otherwise transfer or dispose of any of
the Franco-Nevada Normandy shares (or any interest, securities convertible
into, or derivative of, or any voting rights with respect to, any of the
shares), other than with our prior written consent, provided that a transfer to
a wholly owned subsidiary that acknowledges that it is bound by the above
restrictions will not require that consent.

   At any time prior to the occurrence of an acquisition transaction as
described above, if the number of the Franco-Nevada Normandy shares, together
with any other Normandy shares tendered to our transaction, equals at least
50.1% of the Normandy shares (calculated on a fully diluted basis), and the
conditions to our transaction capable of satisfaction prior to the take-up of
Normandy shares have been otherwise satisfied or waived, we may require
Franco-Nevada to tender the Franco-Nevada Normandy shares to our transaction.

                       THE ACQUISITION OF FRANCO-NEVADA

   To acquire Franco-Nevada, we have entered into an arrangement agreement
under which each Franco-Nevada shareholder (other than holders who exercise and
perfect their dissent rights) will be entitled to receive in exchange for each
Franco-Nevada common share either (i) 0.80 of an exchangeable share or (ii)
0.80 of a share of Newmont common stock, on the terms and subject to the
limitations and conditions set out in the plan of arrangement. Each
Franco-Nevada shareholder will be required to make the same election between
(i) and (ii) in respect of all Franco-Nevada common shares held by that
shareholder. If we complete the merger each Franco-Nevada shareholder will be
entitled to receive either 0.80 of an exchangeable share (exchangeable into
Holdco common stock) or 0.80 of a share of Holdco common stock in exchange for
each share of Franco-Nevada common stock held, depending on the election made.

   (b) Conduct of Business of Franco-Nevada. Prior to the effective time,
       unless we otherwise agree in writing, Franco-Nevada is required, and is
       required to cause each of its subsidiaries, to (i) conduct its business

          similar premiums are in full force and effect;

      (3) not do or permit any action that would, or could reasonably be

                                      63

          arrangement with respect to any of the foregoing matters.

   (c) CONDUCT OF BUSINESS AND COVENANTS BY NEWMONT. Prior to the effective
       time, unless Franco-Nevada otherwise agrees in writing, we are required,

       agreement or Franco-Nevada otherwise agrees in writing) to:

      (1) not, nor permit any of our subsidiaries to, redeem, purchase or offer
          to purchase any securities of our capital stock, or enter into any
          agreement, understanding or arrangement with respect to the

          that, in the aggregate, exceed US$200 million, except in the ordinary
          course of business consistent with past practice and other than:

              permitted by the arrangement agreement; and

         (ii) pursuant to existing operating or replacement lines of credit
              with third party lenders;

      (6) not do or permit any action that would, or could reasonably be
          expected to, render any of its representations or warranties in the
          arrangement agreement untrue or inaccurate in a manner that would, or
          could reasonably be expected to, be materially adverse to us and our
          subsidiaries, taken as a whole;

      (7) promptly notify Franco-Nevada orally and in writing of any change in
          the ordinary course of its business, operations or properties and of
          any material complaints, investigations or hearings (or
          communications indicating that the same may be contemplated) that,
          individually is, or in the

                                      64



          aggregate are, or could reasonably be expected to be, materially
          adverse to us and our subsidiaries, taken as a whole;

      (8) not enter into or modify any contract, agreement, commitment or
          arrangement with respect to any of the foregoing matters; and

          could reasonably be expected to be, materially adverse to us and our
          subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

   In addition, we must not (unless we first consult with Franco-Nevada) do,
permit any of its subsidiaries to do or permit to occur any of the following
(directly or indirectly), except in connection with the transaction and among
Newmont and our direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries:

      (1) issue, grant, sell, transfer, pledge, lease, dispose of, encumber or
          agree to issue, grant, sell, pledge, lease, dispose of or encumber:

          (A) any shares of Newmont common stock or other securities entitling
              the holder to rights in respect of the securities or assets of
              Newmont or our subsidiaries, other than pursuant to existing
              rights to acquire such securities; or

          (B) any property or assets of Newmont or any of our subsidiaries,
              except in the ordinary course of business consistent with past
              practice;

      (2) except in accordance with existing executed agreements of purchase
          and sale, acquire or agree to acquire (by purchase, amalgamation,
          merger or otherwise) any person or assets that individually exceed
          US$50 million or, in the aggregate, exceed US$100 million; or

      (3) except as provided in our regular budget, make, or commit to make,
          any capital expenditures that individually exceeds US$50 million.

   Under the arrangement agreement, we agree to use our best efforts to:

      (1) obtain all orders required from the applicable Canadian securities
          regulatory authorities to permit the first resale of:

          (A) the exchangeable shares issued pursuant to the arrangement; and

          (B) the Newmont shares issued from time to time upon exchange of the
              exchangeable shares,

   in each case without qualification with or approval of or the filing of any
   prospectus (other than in the case of a control person for purposes of
   Canadian securities laws);

      (2) cause the exchangeable shares to be listed and posted for trading on
          the TSE by the effective time and to take reasonable steps to
          maintain such listings for so long as there are exchangeable shares
          outstanding (other than securities held by us or any of our
          affiliates);

      (3) take reasonable steps to ensure that Newmont Canada has, at the
          effective time and for so long as there are exchangeable shares
          outstanding (other than exchangeable shares held by us or any of our
          affiliates), a "substantial Canadian presence" within the meaning of
          subsection 206(1.1) of the Income Tax Act ("ITA");

      (4) take reasonable steps to cause the listing and admission to trading
          on the NYSE of the shares of Newmont common stock to be issued at the
          effective time and from time to time (i) upon exchange of the
          exchangeable shares, and (ii) upon the exercise of the Franco-Nevada
          options, Franco-Nevada class B warrants and Franco-Nevada class C
          warrants; and

      (5) take reasonable steps to ensure that Newmont Canada is, at the
          effective time and for so long as there are exchangeable shares
          outstanding (other than exchangeable shares held by us or any of

                                      65



          our affiliates), a "taxable Canadian corporation" and not a "mutual
          fund corporation," each within the meaning of the ITA.

   (d) NON-SOLICITATION. Franco-Nevada has agreed that it will not, and will
       not permit any of its subsidiaries to, directly or indirectly, through
       any director, officer, employee, insider, professional advisor, agent or
       authorized representative or otherwise, take any action that may in any
       way adversely affect or reduce the successful completion of the
       transaction. Without limiting the foregoing, Franco-Nevada has agreed
       that it will not, and will not permit any of its subsidiaries, directly
       or indirectly, through any of the foregoing to solicit, initiate,
       encourage or facilitate (including by way of furnishing non-public
       information) any inquiries or proposals regarding an alternative
       transaction; participate in any discussions or negotiations regarding
       any alternative transaction; approve or recommend any alternative
       transaction; or accept or enter into any agreement, arrangement or
       understanding related to any alternative transaction; provided, however,
       that, subject to Franco-Nevada's obligation to give notice and our right
       to respond, nothing will prevent the board of directors from (i)
       complying with its obligations under applicable securities law to
       prepare and deliver a directors' circular in response to a take-over
       bid, and (ii) considering, participating in discussions or negotiations
       and entering into confidentiality agreements and providing information
       regarding an unsolicited BONA FIDE written acquisition proposal that
       does not result from a breach of the foregoing and that the board of
       directors determines by formal resolution in good faith, after
       consultation with its financial advisors and outside legal counsel, is a
       superior proposal, but only to the extent that the board of directors
       has also determined by formal resolution, in good faith after
       consultation with its outside counsel that the failure to take such
       action would reasonably be expected to constitute a breach of its
       fiduciary duties.

       Franco-Nevada may accept, approve, recommend or enter into an agreement,
       understanding or arrangement to implement a superior proposal if (i) it
       has provided us with a copy of the documentation relating to the
       superior proposal, and (ii) five business days have elapsed from the
       later of the date we received written notice from the board of directors
       that it has resolved to accept, approve, recommend or enter into a
       binding agreement to implement the superior proposal, and the date we
       received all of the documentation relating to the superior proposal.

       During that five business day period, we will have the right, but not
       the obligation, to offer to amend the terms of the arrangement
       agreement. The board of directors will review any offer by us to amend
       the terms of the arrangement agreement in good faith, in consultation
       with its financial advisors and outside legal counsel, to determine
       whether the acquisition proposal to which we are responding would be a
       superior proposal when assessed against our amended proposal. If the
       board of directors does not so determine, by formal resolution, it will
       enter into an amended agreement with us reflecting our amended proposal.
       If the board of directors determines by formal resolution that the
       acquisition proposal is nonetheless a superior proposal and
       Franco-Nevada has made the payment to us described in "Termination and
       Termination Fees" below, Franco-Nevada may approve, recommend, accept or
       enter into an agreement, understanding or arrangement to implement the
       superior proposal, provided that in no event is the board of directors
       permitted to take any action that may obligate Franco-Nevada or any
       other person to seek to interfere with the completion of the
       transactions or impose any "break-up," "hello" or other fees or options
       or rights to acquire assets or securities, or any other obligations that
       would survive completion of the transaction, of Franco-Nevada or any of
       its subsidiaries, property or assets.

   (e) CONDITIONS TO THE TRANSACTION. The obligations of Franco-Nevada and us
       to consummate the transaction are subject to the satisfaction of certain
       mutual conditions, including (i) approval of the requisite resolutions
       by Franco-Nevada shareholders at the Franco-Nevada shareholders'
       meetings, (ii) approval of the arrangement by the Superior Court of
       Justice of the Province of Ontario (or the "Ontario Superior Court"),
       (iii) approval by our shareholders of the issuance of the shares of
       common stock to complete the arrangement and the acquisition of
       Normandy, (iv) listing of the shares of common stock of Newmont and the
       exchangeable shares issuable to Franco-Nevada shareholders pursuant to
       the arrangement on the NYSE and the TSE, respectively, (v) the
       acquisition by us and our

                                      66



       associates of a "relevant interest" (as defined below) in at least 50.1%
       of the Normandy shares, calculated on a fully-diluted basis and (vi)
       receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals. As defined in the
       Corporations Act 2001, a person will have a relevant interest in
       securities if such person (i) is the holder of the securities, (ii) has
       the power to exercise, or control the exercise of, the right to vote
       attached to the securities or (iii) has the power to dispose of, or
       control the exercise of a power to dispose of, the securities.

       The obligations of Franco-Nevada to complete the transaction are subject
       to the satisfaction of certain conditions in its favor, including the
       representations and warranties of Newmont under the arrangement
       agreement being true and correct in all material respects and there not
       having occurred any event, change, effect or development that
       individually or in the aggregate, has had or is reasonably likely to
       have, a materially adverse effect on Newmont and our subsidiaries, taken
       as a whole.

       Our obligations to complete the transaction are subject to the
       satisfaction of certain conditions in our favor, including the
       representations and warranties of Franco-Nevada under the arrangement
       agreement being true and correct in all material respects, there not
       having been delivered and not withdrawn notices of dissent with respect
       to the requisite Franco-Nevada shareholder resolutions in respect of
       more than 4,000,000 Franco-Nevada common shares, and there not having
       occurred any event, change, effect or development that individually or
       in the aggregate, has had or is reasonably likely to have, a materially
       adverse effect on Franco-Nevada and its subsidiaries taken as a whole.

   (f) AMENDMENT AND WAIVER. The arrangement agreement, including the plan of
       arrangement, may be amended by written agreement of the parties at any
       time before or after the Franco-Nevada shareholder meeting, but not
       later than the effective date and any such amendment may, subject to
       applicable law or the interim order of the Ontario Superior Court,
       without limitation, (i) change the time for performance of any of the
       obligations or acts of the parties, (ii) waive any inaccuracies in or
       modify any representation contained in the arrangement agreement or any
       document to be delivered pursuant to the arrangement agreement, (iii)
       waive compliance with or modify any of the covenants contained in the
       arrangement agreement or waive or modify performance of any of the
       obligations of the parties, and/or (iv) waive compliance with or modify
       any condition precedent contained in the arrangement agreement. If
       Franco-Nevada or Newmont, as the case may be, proposes any amendment or
       amendments to the arrangement agreement or the plan of arrangement, the
       other must consider that amendment and if it and its security holders
       are not prejudiced by reason of any such amendment, it will cooperate so
       that that amendment can be effected subject to applicable law and the
       rights of the security holders.

       Franco-Nevada and we will use all efforts to obtain the approvals of the
       Ontario Superior Court and the Franco-Nevada shareholders in respect of
       any amendments to the arrangement agreement, including the plan of
       arrangement, to the extent required by applicable law.

   (g) TERMINATION AND TERMINATION FEES. The arrangement agreement may be
       terminated at any time prior to the effective time by mutual written
       agreement of Franco-Nevada and Newmont, or by either Franco-Nevada or
       Newmont, subject to the other party's right to cure in certain
       circumstances, if the conditions to the arrangement have not been waived
       or satisfied on or before October 31, 2002. Franco-Nevada may terminate
       the arrangement at any time if our shareholders do not approve all
       matters necessary to consummate the transaction or if a person other
       than Newmont or a related entity of Newmont unconditionally acquires not
       less than 50.1% of the Normandy shares, calculated on a fully diluted
       basis. Newmont may terminate the arrangement agreement if at any time:

      (A) the Franco-Nevada board of directors (i) does not recommend or
          withdraws or modifies in a manner adverse to Newmont or refuses to
          affirm its recommendation of the arrangement, or (ii) approves,
          recommends, accepts or enters into any agreement, undertaking or
          arrangement in respect of an alternative transaction;

                                      67



      (B) the Franco-Nevada shareholders meeting is cancelled, adjourned or
          delayed, except as expressly contemplated by the arrangement
          agreement or agreed to by us in writing;

      (C) the shareholders do not cast (or do not cause to be cast) sufficient
          votes at the Franco-Nevada shareholders meeting to permit completion
          of the arrangement; or

      (D) a person other than Newmont or an affiliate of Newmont
          unconditionally acquires not less than 50.1% of the Normandy shares
          calculated on a fully diluted basis.

   Provided that we have not failed to perform any covenant required to be
   performed by us pursuant to the arrangement agreement (or such failure is
   not materially adverse to Franco-Nevada and its subsidiaries taken as a
   whole) and no representation or warranty made by us contained in the
   arrangement agreement is untrue in any material respect, if we exercise our
   right of termination pursuant to: (a) clauses (A), (B) or (C) above (where,
   in the case of clause (C), at the time of the Franco-Nevada shareholders
   meeting a bona fide acquisition proposal that has been made has not been
   withdrawn), Franco-Nevada will immediately pay to us US$100 million in
   immediately available funds to an account designated by us; or (b) clause
   (C) above, where, at the time of the Franco-Nevada shareholders meeting, a
   bona fide acquisition proposal that has been made has been withdrawn or no
   such proposal has been made, Franco-Nevada will immediately pay to us US$20
   million in immediately available funds to an account designated by us. In
   addition, with respect to paragraph (b), if, at any time within 12 months
   after the date of such payment, Franco-Nevada approves, recommends, accepts,
   enters into or consummates an acquisition proposal, Franco-Nevada will pay
   to us US$80 million in immediately available funds to an account designated
   by us upon consummation of that acquisition proposal. Franco-Nevada will not
   be obligated to make payments exceeding US$100 million pursuant to the
   provisions above.

   If (i) the Franco-Nevada shareholders approve the transaction and our
shareholders do not approve the transaction, (ii) Franco-Nevada has not failed
to perform any covenant required to be performed by it pursuant to the
arrangement agreement (or such failure is not materially adverse to
Franco-Nevada and its subsidiaries or Newmont and our subsidiaries, in each
case taken as a whole), (iii) no representation or warranty made by
Franco-Nevada is untrue in any material respect, and (iv) Franco-Nevada
exercises its right to terminate the arrangement agreement, we will pay to
Franco-Nevada US$10 million in immediately available funds to an account
designated by Franco-Nevada, for its out-of-pocket expenses.

COURT APPROVAL OF THE ARRANGEMENT AND COMPLETION OF THE FRANCO-NEVADA
TRANSACTION

   The arrangement requires approval by the Ontario Superior Court and the
approval of the Franco-Nevada shareholders at the Franco-Nevada shareholders
meeting. Prior to the mailing of the Franco-Nevada proxy circular,
Franco-Nevada obtained the requisite interim order from the Ontario Superior
Court providing for the calling and holding of the Franco-Nevada shareholders
meeting and other procedural matters. Subject to the approval of the requisite
arrangement resolutions by the Franco-Nevada shareholders at the Franco-Nevada
shareholder meeting, the hearing in respect of the requisite final order from
the Ontario Superior Court is scheduled to take place on February 1, 2002. At
this hearing, the Ontario Superior Court will consider, among other things, the
fairness and reasonableness of the arrangement. The Ontario Superior Court may
approve the arrangement as proposed or as amended in any manner the Ontario
Superior Court may direct, subject to compliance with such terms and
conditions, if any, as the Ontario Superior Court deems fit.

   Assuming the final order is granted and other conditions to the arrangement
agreement are satisfied or waived, we anticipate that the documents necessary
to consummate the transactions contemplated under the arrangement agreement
will be executed and delivered. We currently anticipate that the effective date
will occur prior to the end of February 2002.

   SCHULICH AND LASSONDE LOCK-UP AND ESCROW AGREEMENTS

   THE FOLLOWING IS A SUMMARY OF THE MATERIAL TERMS OF THE LOCK-UP AND ESCROW
AGREEMENTS, DATED AS OF NOVEMBER 14, 2001 BY AND BETWEEN US AND PIERRE LASSONDE
AND BY AND BETWEEN US AND SEYMOUR SCHULICH.

   Seymour Schulich, Chairman of the Board and Co-Chief Executive Officer of
Franco-Nevada, and his affiliates own 10,200,492 Franco-Nevada common shares
and Pierre Lassonde, president and co-chief executive officer of Franco-Nevada,
and his affiliates own 3,651,167 Franco-Nevada common shares (and Franco-Nevada
options to purchase 667,200 Franco-Nevada common shares), representing, in the
aggregate, approximately 8.7% of the Franco-Nevada common shares issued and
outstanding. Pursuant to the lock-up agreements, each of Mr. Schulich and Mr.
Lassonde has agreed that all of his Franco-Nevada common shares (including
common shares acquired by him after the date of the lock-up agreements) will be
voted in favor of the transaction and that he will not vote any of his
Franco-Nevada common shares in favor of any alternative transaction. Each of
Mr. Schulich and Mr. Lassonde irrevocably agrees, among other things, that he
will not, and will not permit any person over which he exercises influence or
control to, contract to sell, sell or otherwise transfer or dispose of any of
his Franco-Nevada common shares (or any interest, securities convertible into
or any voting rights with respect to any of his Franco-Nevada common shares),
other than pursuant to the arrangement or with our prior written consent. The
lock-up agreements further provide that each of Mr. Schulich and Mr. Lassonde:

   (a) will not permit any person over which he exercises influence or control,
       directly or indirectly (including, if applicable, through its directors,
       officers, employees, insiders, professional advisors, agents or other
       authorized representatives) to take any action that may in any way
       adversely affect or reduce the likelihood of the successful completion
       of the transaction; and

   (b) will not (and will not permit any of its subsidiaries to), directly or
       indirectly, through any of its or its subsidiaries' directors, officers,
       employees, insiders, professional advisors, agents or other authorized
       representatives:

      (i) solicit, initiate, encourage or facilitate (including by way of
          furnishing non-public information) any inquiries or proposals
          regarding an alternative transaction;

     (ii) participate in any discussions or negotiations regarding any
          alternative transaction;

    (iii) approve or recommend any alternative transaction; or

     (iv) accept or enter any agreement, arrangement or understanding related
          to any alternative transaction.

   Pursuant to the escrow agreements, each of Mr. Schulich and Mr. Lassonde has
deposited or agreed to deposit in escrow the certificate(s) representing the
Franco-Nevada common shares referred to in the lock-up

                                      69



agreements (and, in the case of Mr. Lassonde, the certificate(s) representing
Franco-Nevada common shares issued upon exercise of his Franco-Nevada stock
options). The Franco-Nevada common shares deposited in escrow will be released,
subject to accelerated release in certain events, three months following the
termination of the escrow agreements. On the effective date of the acquisition
of Franco-Nevada, 30% of the exchangeable shares received in exchange for the
escrowed Franco-Nevada common shares will be released and the balance will be
released as to 30% on the first anniversary of the effective date, and as to
20% on each of the second and third anniversaries of the effective date.

JOINT VENTURE BETWEEN NEWMONT AND NORMANDY

   Newmont and Normandy each has a 50% interest in the Pajingo joint venture as
successors to a joint venture agreement between Posgold Operations Pty Ltd and
Battle Mountain (Australia) Inc. Under the joint venture agreement, Normandy
manages mine operations and exploration. For these services, Normandy receives
a management fee of approximately A$1.2 million per annum from Newmont.

NEWMONT PROPERTIES SUBJECT TO FRANCO-NEVADA ROYALTIES

   Newmont owns and in some cases actively conducts operations on a number of
properties in Nevada which are subject to the payment of a production royalty
to Franco-Nevada. The following properties are currently producing and provided
Franco-Nevada with the royalty payment indicated over the period of October 1,
2000 through September 30, 2001:

                                 THE COMPANIES

BUSINESS OF NEWMONT

   Newmont was incorporated in 1965 under the laws of Delaware. Through its
predecessor companies, Newmont has been in the mining business since 1921. We
are engaged, directly or indirectly through our subsidiaries and affiliates, in
the production of gold, development of mining properties, exploration for gold
and the acquisition of mining properties world-wide. We are the second largest
gold producer in the world, based on ounces of production. In 2000, we produced
gold from operations in Nevada and California and, outside the United States,
from operations in Canada, Peru, Bolivia, Indonesia, Mexico, Uzbekistan and
Australia. We also produce copper concentrates from a copper/gold deposit at a
second location in Indonesia. Our average cash cost of gold production for 2000
was US$170 per ounce, compared to a Western world average of US$186 per ounce.

   We had revenues of US$1.81 billion in 2000 and US$1.63 billion in 1999. In
2000, we had a net loss applicable to common shares of US$102.3 million in 2000
and US$102.0 million in 1999. The net loss in 2000 included non-cash items
totaling US$103.3 million, net of tax, primarily for asset impairments and an
acquisition settlement. In 1999, the net loss included non-cash items totaling
US$126.2 million, net of tax, primarily for asset impairments and losses on
written call options. Including our subsidiaries, partnerships and joint
ventures, we sold 5.7 million equity ounces of gold in 2000 and 4.9 million
equity ounces in 1999. We use the term "equity ounces" to mean that portion of
gold produced, or included in proven and probable reserves, which is
attributable or proportionate to our ownership interest.

   PRODUCT

   Most of our revenue comes from the sale of refined gold into the
international market. Our gold sales are generally made at the average price
prevailing during the month in which the gold is delivered to the customer,
plus an interest factor.

   Refined copper is an internationally traded commodity and is produced from
the treatment of concentrates. We deliver and sell the concentrates produced by
Batu Hijau to smelters in Japan, Korea, Australia and Europe. In 2001,
approximately 85% of Batu Hijau's production will be sold under long-term
contracts, and the balance on the spot market.

   STOCK EXCHANGES

   Shares of Newmont common stock are listed or quoted on the NYSE under the
symbol "NEM". We have filed an application to list Newmont common stock on the
ASX as CDIs. Our $3.25 convertible preferred stock is also listed on the NYSE.

   ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

   Our principal executive offices are located at 1700 Lincoln Street, Denver,
Colorado 80203. Our telephone number is (303) 863-7414, and our website is
http://www.newmont.com. Additional information on Newmont is included in
documents filed by us with the SEC, which are incorporated by reference into
this document. See "Where You Can Find More Information" on page 131.

BUSINESS OF NEW NEWMONT

   New Newmont, to be formed from the combination of Newmont, Normandy and,
subject to completion of the plan of arrangement, Franco-Nevada, will be the
world's leading gold company, with gold reserves in excess of 97 million ounces
and annual production of more than 8 million ounces at an expected cash cost of
approximately US$175 per ounce. New Newmont will be a truly global enterprise,
with an aggregate land

                                      71



position of approximately the same size as the United Kingdom at 244,000 square
kilometers (94,000 square miles) and operations in North America, South
America, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Uzbekistan and Turkey. New Newmont
will obtain more than 70% of its production from the politically and
economically stable locations of the United States, Canada and Australia. New
Newmont will, among other activities, also produce copper concentrates from
locations in Indonesia and zinc and copper concentrates from locations in
Australia.

   The information provided in this section is designed to give you an
understanding of the assets, liabilities, operations and prospects of New
Newmont. This description of New Newmont assumes that the merger with
Franco-Nevada takes place, although the offer for Normandy is not conditional
on the merger with Franco-Nevada taking place. If that merger is not
successful, the business of New Newmont will not include the bulk of the
royalty business, which covers gold, platinum, oil and gas interests, or
investments which are set out below. You should consider this possibility when
assessing the prospects of New Newmont.

   The following information is based upon Newmont successfully acquiring all
of the shares of both Normandy and Franco-Nevada. These acquisitions are
subject to a number of conditions, described in "The Transactions," "The
Acquisition of Normandy" and "The Acquisition of Franco-Nevada" on pages 32,
53, and 61, respectively.

   OVERVIEW OF NEW NEWMONT

   New Newmont will continue the historic businesses of Newmont and Normandy in
the production of, and exploration for, gold, copper and zinc. New Newmont will
also continue Franco-Nevada's primary business, which is the acquisition of (i)
direct interests in mineral properties and, when appropriate, developing those
properties, (ii) royalty interests in producing precious metals, mines and
precious metals properties in the development or advanced exploration stage,
(iii) direct interests in mineral properties for the purpose of exploration
and, when appropriate, selling, leasing or joint venturing those properties to
established mine operators and retaining royalty interests and (iv) indirect
interests in mineral deposits through equity interests in companies that own
interests in mineral deposits.

   PRODUCTS

   GOLD.  Gold has two main categories of use--product fabrication and bullion
investment. Fabricated gold has a variety of end uses, including jewelry,
electronics, dentistry, industrial and decorative uses, medals, medallions and
official coins. Gold investors buy gold bullion, official coins and high-karat
jewelry. Most of New Newmont's revenue will come from the sale of refined gold
in the international market. The end product at each of New Newmont's gold
operations, however, will be dore bars. Because dore is an alloy consisting
mostly of gold but also containing silver, copper and other metals, dore bars
are sent to refiners to produce bullion that meets the required market standard
of 99.95% pure gold. Under the terms of refining agreements, the dore bars will
be refined for a fee, and New Newmont's share of the refined gold and the
separately recovered silver will be credited to the company's account or
delivered to buyers, except in the case of the dore produced from New Newmont's
operation in Uzbekistan. Dore from that operation will be refined locally and
physically returned to New Newmont for sale in international markets. New
Newmont does not believe that the loss of any of its refiners would have an
adverse effect on its business due to the availability of alternative refiners
able to supply the necessary services. Additionally, through Normandy, New
Newmont will have a 50% interest in an Australian refinery.

   The worldwide supply of gold consists of a combination of new production
from mining and existing stocks of bullion and fabricated gold held by
governments, financial institutions, industrial organizations and private
individuals. In recent years, mine production has accounted for 60% to 65% of
the total annual supply of gold. The price of gold is affected by numerous
factors that are beyond our control. See "Risk Factors--Risks related

                                      73

high, low and average afternoon fixing prices over the past five years,
expressed in U.S. dollars, for gold per ounce on the London Bullion Market:

2001/(1)/ 293  256   270

--------
(1) Through October 31, 2001

   On December 19, 2001, the afternoon fixing price of gold on the London
Bullion Market was US$279 per ounce.

   New Newmont's gold sales will generally be made at the average price
prevailing during the month in which the gold is delivered to the customer plus
a "contango," which is essentially an interest factor, from the beginning of
the month until the date of delivery. Revenue from a sale is recognized when
gold is delivered from the refiner or other depository to the customer.

   COPPER.  The Batu Hijau mine in Indonesia, in which New Newmont will hold a
56.25% economic interest (a 45% equity interest), produced copper/gold
concentrates containing 519.7 million pounds of copper and 451,400 ounces of
gold in the first nine months ended September 30, 2001. The concentrates, which
have the consistency of fine sand, contain about 30% copper and about 0.42
ounce per ton of gold. In addition, the 100% owned Golden Grove Operation in
Western Australia produced zinc, lead and copper concentrates containing 242.5
million pounds of copper for the 12 months ended June 30, 2001. New Newmont
will deliver and sell the concentrates to smelters in Japan, Korea, Australia
and Europe. The majority of New Newmont's production will be sold under
long-term contracts, and the balance on the spot market.

   Refined copper, the final product from the treatment of concentrates, is
incorporated into wire and cable products for use in the construction, electric
utility, communication and transportation industries. Copper is also used in
industrial equipment and machinery, consumer products and a variety of other
electrical and electronic applications and is used to make brass. Materials
that compete with copper include aluminum, plastics, stainless steel and fiber
optics.

   Refined, or cathode, copper is also an internationally traded commodity. The
price of copper is quoted on the London Metal Exchange in terms of dollars per
metric ton of high grade copper and on the New York Commodity Exchange (Comex)
in terms of dollars per pound of high grade copper. Copper prices tend to be
more cyclical than gold prices and are more directly affected by the worldwide
balance of supply and demand. The volatility of the copper market is
illustrated by the following table, which shows the high, low and average
price, in U.S. dollars per pound, of high grade copper on the London Metal
Exchange in each of the last five years:



YEAR                        HIGH   LOW  AVERAGE

   On December 19, 2001, the closing spot price of high grade copper on the
London Metal Exchange was equivalent to US$0.67 per pound.

   ZINC. New Newmont will produce zinc, lead and copper concentrates at its
Golden Grove operations in Western Australia. Golden Grove produced 182,655
tonnes of zinc concentrate containing 82,391 tonnes of payable zinc during the
period July 1, 2000 to June 30, 2001. Golden Grove markets its zinc
concentrates under "evergreen" contracts to major zinc smelters in Japan and
Korea. The majority of zinc concentrate is sold under long term contract
arrangements. Pricing terms are negotiated annually.

HEDGING ACTIVITIES

   New Newmont generally intends to sell its production at spot market prices
and expects to continue Newmont's "no hedging" philosophy. While there is no
current intention to enter into any gold hedging positions, New Newmont will
monitor the market on an ongoing basis and may periodically elect to enter into
selective hedging transactions, if required to achieve its strategic
objectives. The hedging policy authorized by Newmont's board of directors
limits total hedging activity to 16 million ounces.

   Newmont utilized forward sales contracts for a portion of the gold
production from the Minahasa mine in Indonesia and from Nevada operations.
Newmont sales of gold under forward sales contracts represented 3%, 6% and 18%
of Newmont's total equity production in 2000, 1999 and 1998, respectively. No
costs were incurred for forward sales contracts and there were no margin
requirements related to these contracts. The use of forward sales contracts has
protected Newmont against declining gold prices over the past three years, with
respect to the covered ounces.

   Normandy's policy has been to hedge a minimum of 60% of recoverable
reserves. Recoverable reserves are generally between 80% and 95% of total
reserves. Normandy has not entered into contracts that require margin calls and
has no outstanding long-dated sold call options. Normandy has utilized forward
sales contracts with fixed and floating gold lease rates. New Newmont will look
to opportunistically unwind or deliver into Normandy's hedge book over time.

   The following table summarizes the hedge books of Normandy and its
subsidiaries at September 30, 2001, as reported in Normandy's quarterly reports:

   PROPERTIES AND OPERATIONS

   GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF GOLD PROCESSING FACILITIES

   Gold is extracted from naturally-oxidized ores by either heap leaching or
milling, depending on the amount of gold contained in the ore and the
amenability of the gold ore to the treatment. Gold contained in ores that are
not naturally oxidized can be directly milled and leached if the gold is
accessable to the chemical, generally known as free milling ores. Ores that
will not leach efficiently, known as refractory ores, require more costly and
complex processing techniques than oxide or free milling ore. Higher-grade
refractory ores are processed through either roasters or autoclaves. Roasters
heat finely ground ore with air and oxygen to a high temperature and burn off
the carbon and sulfide minerals that encase the gold or that prevent efficient
leaching. Autoclaves use heat, oxygen and pressure to oxidize sulfide minerals
in the ore. Some gold bearing sulfide ores may be processed through a flotation
plant or by bio-milling. In flotation, ore is finely ground, turned into
slurry, then placed in a tank known as a flotation cell. Chemicals are added to
the slurry causing the gold-containing sulfides to float in air bubbles to the
top of the tank where they can be separated from waste particles that sink to
the bottom. The sulfides are removed from the cell and formed into a
concentrate that can then be processed in an autoclave or roaster to fully
recover the gold from the smaller concentrate mass. Bio-milling incorporates
patented technology referred to as bio-oxidation technology that involves
inoculation of suitable crushed ore on a leach pad with naturally occurring and
patented bacteria strains that oxidize the sulfides encasing the gold over a
period of time. The ore is then processed through a mill and leach system.

   Free milling and some oxide ores are processed through mills where the ore
is ground into a fine powder and mixed with water in slurry, which then passes
through a cyanide leaching circuit where gold is extracted and collected on
carbon followed by extraction from the carbon and electrowinning. Amenable ores
are processed using heap leaching. The ore is crushed and stacked on
impermeable pads, where weak cyanide solution is applied to the the top surface
of the heaps to dissolve the gold. The gold-bearing solution is collected and
pumped to facilities to remove the gold by collection on carbon or zinc
precipitation directly from leach solutions.

   NORTH AMERICA

   NEVADA

   PRODUCTION. New Newmont's Nevada operations including the Midas Mine
(formerly the Ken Snyder Mine) will include Carlin, located west of Elko on the
geological feature known as the Carlin Trend and the Winnemucca Region. The
Carlin Trend is the largest gold district discovered in North America in the
last 50 years. The Winnemucca region includes (i) the Twin Creeks mine located
near Winnemucca, (ii) the Lone Tree Complex located near Battle Mountain and
(iii) the Battle Mountain Complex, near Battle Mountain, where there are no
currently active mining operations but where studies are ongoing with respect
to the feasibility of developing a large gold/copper deposit.

   Gold production in Nevada totaled approximately 2.1 million equity ounces at
a cash cost of US$217 per ounce for the first nine months ended September 30,
2001.

   In 2000, ore was mined from nine open-pit deposits and five underground
mines. Although the Deep Post open pit was mined out at the end of 2000,
production from stockpiled ore continued into 2001, and production from the
Deep Post underground mine, which is accessed through a decline near the bottom
of the pit, commenced in March 2001.

   PROCESSING FACILITIES. New Newmont's operations in Nevada have a number of
different ore types and processing techniques. Newmont has developed a linear
programming model to determine the best mix of ore types for each processing
facility in order to obtain the maximum ounces of gold at the lowest cost from
the ores.

                                      76



Approximately 71% of Nevada's 2000 year-end proven and probable gold reserves
were refractory and the balance were oxide. Nevada's production has
increasingly come from higher-cost refractory ores from both deep open pits and
underground mines as lower-cost, near-surface oxide ores have been depleted.
Refractory ore treatment facilities are expected to generate approximately 65%
of Nevada's gold production in 2001, compared with 67% in 2000.

   Higher-grade oxide ores are processed at one oxide mill at Carlin, two at
Twin Creeks and one at Lone Tree. New Newmont will consider whether to continue
operating the Midas mill or close it and process the ore at one of the oxide
mills at Twin Creeks. Lower-grade oxide ores are processed using heap leaching.
Higher-grade refractory ores are processed through either a roaster at Carlin
or through autoclaves at Twin Creeks or Lone Tree.

   Gold-bearing activated carbon from Carlin's milling and leaching facilities
is processed on site at a central carbon processing plant and adjacent smelting
facilities. Separate carbon processing facilities are located in the North and
South Areas at Twin Creeks with one smelter in the North Area. Lone Tree has
two carbon processing facilities. Material from the Lone Tree carbon processing
facilities is smelted at Carlin.

   OTHER FACILITIES. Analytical laboratories, maintenance facilities and
administration offices are located at Carlin, Twin Creeks and the Lone Tree
Complex. We will also have an advanced metallurgical research laboratory in
Denver, Colorado.

   Electrical power and natural gas for New Newmont's Nevada operations will be
provided by public utilities. Oxygen for the roaster will be provided on a
contract basis from an oxygen plant constructed by the supplier on land leased
from Newmont. New Newmont will be the sole customer of the oxygen produced.
Oxygen plants used in conjunction with the autoclaves at Twin Creeks and Lone
Tree will be owned by Newmont and operated and maintained by a third party.

   MINERAL RIGHTS. New Newmont will own, or control through long-term mining
leases and unpatented mining claims, all of the minerals and surface area
within the boundaries of the present Carlin and Winnemucca Region mining
operations areas. The long-term leases extend for at least the anticipated mine
life of those deposits. With respect to a significant portion of the Gold
Quarry Mine at Carlin, New Newmont will own a 10% undivided interest in the
mineral rights and lease the remaining 90%, on which New Newmont will pay a
royalty equivalent to 18% of the mineral production. The remainder of the Gold
Quarry mineral rights will be wholly owned or controlled by New Newmont, in
some cases subject to additional royalties. With respect to certain smaller
deposits in the Winnemucca Region, New Newmont will be obligated to pay
royalties on production to third parties that vary from 3% to 5% of production.

   CANADA

   GOLDEN GIANT AND HOLLOWAY.  New Newmont will have two underground mines in
Canada. The Golden Giant mine (100% owned) is located approximately 25 miles
east of Marathon in Ontario, Canada and has been in production since 1985. The
Holloway mine is located approximately 35 miles east of Matheson in Ontario,
and about 400 miles northeast of Golden Giant. The mine is owned by a joint
venture in which New Newmont will have an 84.65% interest. The remaining 15.35%
interest is held by Teddy Bear Valley Mines.

   Gold sales from the Golden Giant and Holloway for the nine months ended
September 30, 2001 were 196,200 and 64,400 ounces, respectively, with total
cash costs of US$193 and US$226 per ounce, respectively.

   See also "--TVX Normandy" for a description of other mines in Canada in
which New Newmont will have interests.

                                      77



   OTHER NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTIES

   New Newmont will have one mine in Southern California, Mesquite. Mining
operations ceased in the second quarter of 2001, with the depletion of the main
ore body. Mesquite operations are transitioning to temporary shut-down and
reclamation, and declining amounts of gold will be recovered from the inventory
of ores on the heap leach pads.

   In Mexico, New Newmont will have a 44% interest in La Herradura, which is
located in northwest Sonora, Mexico, and operated by Industriales Penoles S.A.
de C.V. group, Mexico's largest silver producer.

   SOUTH AMERICA

   PERU

   The properties of Minera Yanacocha S.R.L. are located approximately 375
miles north of Lima and 28 miles north of the city of Cajamarca. Since the
discovery of gold ores in 1986, the area has become the largest gold district
in South America. Minera Yanacocha began production in 1993. New Newmont will
hold a 51.35% interest in Minera Yanacocha. The remaining interest is held by
Compania de Minas Buenaventura, S.A.A. (43.65%) and the International Finance
Corporation (5%).

   Minera Yanacocha has mining rights with respect to a large land position
that includes multiple deposits as well as other prospects. Such mining rights
were acquired through assignments of concessions granted by the Peruvian
government to a related entity. The assignments have a term of 20 years,
beginning in the early 1990s, renewable at the option of Minera Yanacocha for
another 20 years. In October 2000, Newmont and Compania de Minas Buenaventura
unitized their land holdings in northern Peru, folding them into Minera
Yanacocha. The unitization increased Yanacocha's land position increased from
100 to 535 square miles.

   Five open-pit mines and four leach pads are in operation at Yanacocha. Gold
sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2001 totalled 1.4 million ounces
of gold (719,500 equity ounces) at a total cash cost of US$117 per ounce.

   At the newly developed La Quinua deposit at Yanacocha, testing of the
agglomeration facility and ore placements on the leach pad were completed in
the third quarter of 2001 and gold production commenced in the fourth quarter.
By 2003, production from La Quinua is expected to reach one million ounces per
year at an average total cash cost of approximately US$125 per ounce. At La
Quinua, the ore is crushed, agglomerated and leached, which increases cash
costs slightly.

   BOLIVIA

   The Kori Kollo open pit mine is on the high plain in northwestern Bolivia
near Oruro on government mining concessions issued to a Bolivian corporation,
Empresa Minera Inti Raymi S.A., which owns and operates the mine. New Newmont
will own 88% of Inti Raymi. The remaining 12% is owned by Zeland Mines, S.A. In
the nine months ended September 30, 2001, the mine sold 201,100 equity ounces
of gold at a total cash cost of US$164 per ounce.

   OTHER

   New Newmont will also have interests in two operating mines in Brazil and
one in Chile. See "--TVX Normandy."

                                      78



   AUSTRALASIA

   AUSTRALIA

   New Newmont's Australian operations will consist of a 50% interest in the
Super Pit and Mt. Charlotte mines, a 44% interest in the Boddington expansion
project, 100% ownership of the Normandy Yandal operations, which consists of
the Bronzewing, Jundee and Wiluna mines, an 87.5% interest in Normandy NFM,
which owns the Tanami operations and a 100% interest in the Pajingo mine. New
Newmont's Australian operations would have contributed approximately 1.97
million ounces of New Newmont's total attributable gold production in the
twelve months ended June 30, 2001.

   KALGOORLIE

   The Kalgoorlie operations comprise the Fimiston Open Pit (commonly referred
to as the Super Pit) and Mt. Charlotte underground mine at Kalgoorlie-Boulder,
600 km east of Perth in the Eastern Goldfields. The mines are managed and run
by Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines Pty Ltd ("KCGM") for the Joint Venture
owners, New Newmont and Homestake Gold of Australia Limited, which will each
hold 50%.

   The Super Pit is Australia's largest gold mine, in terms of both gold
production and total annual mining volumes.

   For the period July 1, 2000 to June 30, 2001, the Super Pit produced 360,683
equity ounces of gold at a total cash cost for Normandy of A$322 per ounce.
Life of mine plans for the Super Pit estimate a 15-17 year life for the
operation.

   Mt. Charlotte is a large underground gold mine that has yielded about 25
million tonnes of ore and over 3 million ounces of gold. During the period July
1, 2000 to June 30, 2001, the mine produced 107,396 ounces of gold from the
treatment of 1.2 million tonnes of ore at a cash cost of A$365 per ounce. The
operation is scheduled to close in December 2001.

   BODDINGTON

   Boddington, a large-scale open pit mining operation, is operated by Worsley
Alumina Pty Ltd on behalf of the joint venture owners, which will be New
Newmont (44.4%), AngloGold (33.3%) and Newcrest Mining Limited (22.2%).
Reserves were exhausted in November 2001, and facilities are being placed on
care and maintenance where those facilities are required for the proposed
expansion. From July 1, 2000 to June 30, 2001, 8.5 million tons of ore were
treated, producing 228,405 ounces of gold (100%) at a total cash cost for
Normandy of A$381 per ounce. The Boddington expansion project has been delayed,
with restructuring of current management arrangements a prerequisite to
development.

   NORMANDY YANDAL

   New Newmont will have a 100% interest in Yandal, which consists of the
Bronzewing, Jundee and Wiluna mines situated in the Yandal Goldfields in
Western Australia. The three operations collectively produced 787,457 ounces of
gold from July 1, 2000 to June 30, 2001 at an average total cash cost of A$288
per ounce.

   TANAMI

   The Tanami operations comprise the Granites treatment plant and associated
mining operations, which are located approximately 550 kilometers northwest of
Alice Springs adjacent to the Tanami highway, and the Dead Bullock Soak mining
operations, some 40 kilometers west of the Granites. The major mine is the
underground Callie operation at Dead Bullock Soak. The Tanami operations will
be owned by Normandy NFM, a publicly listed, 87.5% owned subsidiary of New
Newmont.

                                      79



   The operation is now predominantly focused on the Callie underground mine
with mill feed supplemented by production from the Dead Bullock Ridge open pit
and the Bunkers and Quorn pits at the Granites.

   For the period July 1, 2000 to June 30, 2001, Tanami operations produced
420,836 ounces of gold (368,021 equity ounces) at a total cash cost of A$279
per ounce.

   The Tanami operations also include the Groundrush deposit at which mining
commenced in mid-September 2001. Gold production commenced in November 2001.

   PAJINGO

   The Pajingo gold mine is an underground mine located approximately 150 km
southwest of Townsville, Queensland and 72 kilometers south of the local
township of Charters Towers. The Pajingo gold mine will be 100% owned by New
Newmont.

   Royalties are paid to the Queensland government at 4.0-5.9% of revenues
depending on the gold price. Royalties are also paid to traditional land owners
consisting of 0.2% of revenues and a fixed payment upon exploration success.

   For the period July 1, 2000 to June 30, 2001, Pajingo produced 229,788 total
ounces of gold at a total cash cost of A$177 per ounce.

   MT. LEYSHON

   The Mt. Leyshon gold mine, near Charters Towers, Queensland is owned by Mt.
Leyshon Resources Ltd, which is a publicly listed company of which Normandy
owns 13.7%. Mining ceased at the large scale open pit at Mt. Leyshon in
February 2001. The operation is currently producing gold by treating existing
low-grade stockpiles of 5 million tonnes at 0.8 grams per tonne of gold.
Treatment of stockpiles is expected to be completed in January-February 2002
with operations expected to be closed by the middle of 2002.

   A comprehensive mine closure and rehabilitation plan covering remaining
operations, closure, rehabilitation, decommissioning and post-closure
monitoring has been implemented. Mine closure and rehabilitation costs are
expected to be approximately A$8 million. As part of a restructure of Mt.
Leyshon Resources Ltd, New Newmont will assume responsibility for mine closure
and rehabilitation costs, as well as ongoing environmental obligations.

   NEW ZEALAND

   MARTHA

   The Martha gold mine is located within the town of Waihi, approximately 110
km southeast of Auckland, New Zealand. It will be a joint venture between New
Newmont and Otter Gold Mines Limited ("Otter"). New Newmont will have a 67.06%
interest and manage the operation. Normandy NFM Limited, a subsidiary of
Normandy, has made a takeover bid for Otter. See "--Business of
Normandy--Recent Developments," discussing Normandy NFM's bid for Otter.

   In 1998, additional resources were identified, which has allowed the life of
the mine to be extended a further six years to 2007.

   The operation produced 95,070 ounces of gold for the period July 1, 2000 to
June 30, 2001 at a total cash cost of A$344 per ounce.

                                      80



   The Martha mine does not currently pay royalties. Under new royalty
arrangements, the Martha mine will be required to pay a royalty on new
discoveries such as Favona. The royalty rate is the greater of 1% of gross
revenues from silver and gold sales or 5% of accounting profit. New Newmont
will receive a management fee of 2% of gross revenues from Otter.

   The open pit's location immediately adjacent to the town also means that it
is unlikely that the pit will be expanded or that underground mining will be
pursued below the bottom of the Martha pit. Accordingly, there do not currently
appear to be any prospects of extending the current reserves within the Martha
deposit. At current production rates, reserves are sufficient to support a mine
life of around six years. The longer term future for the Martha operation is
based on the recently discovered Favona vein. The full extent of the
mineralization will only be tested once underground access is available.
However, drilling to date suggests that the Favona system is likely to support
an underground mining operation.

   INDONESIA

   New Newmont will have two operating properties in Indonesia: Minahasa, a
gold operation, and Batu Hijau, which produces copper/gold concentrates. New
Newmont will own 80% of Minahasa. The remaining 20% interest is a carried
interest held by P.T. Tanjung Serapung, an Indonesian company. New Newmont will
have a 45% equity interest in Batu Hijau through a partnership with an
affiliate of Sumitomo Corporation, which will hold a 35% interest. The
remaining 20% is a carried interest held by P.T. Pukuafu Indah, an Indonesian
company. New Newmont will account for its investment in Batu Hijau as an equity
investment due to each partner's significant participating rights in the
business. New Newmont will be entitled to 56.25% of the concentrate production
until New Newmont recovers the bulk of Newmont's investment, including interest.

   In Indonesia, rights are granted to private parties to explore for and to
develop mineral resources within defined areas through Contracts of Work
entered into with the Indonesian government. In 1986, Newmont entered into
separate fourth generation Contracts of Work with the government covering
Minahasa and Batu Hijau, under which Newmont was granted the exclusive right to
explore the contract area, construct any required facilities, extract and
process the mineralized materials and sell and export the minerals produced
subject to certain Indonesian government approvals and payment of royalties to
the government. New Newmont will have the right to continue operating the
projects for 30 years, or longer, if approved by the Indonesian government.
Under New Newmont's Contracts of Work, beginning in the sixth year after mining
operations commenced (and continuing through the tenth year), a portion of each
project not already owned by Indonesian nationals must be offered for sale to
the Indonesian government or to Indonesian nationals, thereby potentially
reducing Newmont's (and, in the case of Batu Hijau, Newmont's and Sumitomo's)
ownership in each project to 49% by the end of the tenth year. The price at
which such interest would be offered for sale to the Indonesian parties would
be the highest of (i) the then current replacement cost, (ii) the price at
which shares of the project company would be accepted for listing on the
Jakarta Stock Exchange or (iii) the fair market value of such interest as a
going concern.

   MINAHASA

   Newmont's first project in Indonesia, Minahasa, on the island of Sulawesi,
approximately 1,500 miles northeast of Jakarta, was a Newmont discovery and
consisted of a multi-deposit operation. Production began in 1996 and ore was
processed from the open pit Mesel deposit and a number of smaller peripheral
deposits. These deposits contained both oxidized and refractory gold
mineralization.

   Minahasa sold 275,400 equity ounces of gold in the nine months ended
September 30, 2001 with total cash costs of US$135 per ounce. Mining operations
will cease by the end of 2001; however, it is expected that processing from
this mine will continue through 2003.

                                      81



   BATU HIJAU

   New Newmont's second project in Indonesia, Batu Hijau, is located on the
island of Sumbawa, approximately 950 miles east of Jakarta. Batu Hijau is a
large porphyry copper/gold deposit, which Newmont discovered in 1990.

   In July 1997, agreements for US$1 billion in financing for the Batu Hijau
project were signed. Project completion tests were met in October 2000 and, as
a result, the financing is now non-recourse to New Newmont and Sumitomo.

   Development and construction activities began in 1997 and start-up took
place in late 1999. The mine produced 519.7 million pounds of copper and
451,400 ounces of gold in the nine months ended September 30, 2001, 56.25% of
which is attributable to Newmont's economic interest. After gold credits the
cash cost was US$0.36 for the nine months ended September 30, 2001.

   ASIA AND EUROPE

   UZBEKISTAN

   New Newmont will have a 50% interest in Zarafshan-Newmont. The remaining 50%
interest is divided between the State Committee for Geology and Mineral
Resources ("State Committee") and Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Combine
("Navoi"), each a state entity of Uzbekistan. The joint venture produces gold
by crushing and leaching ore from existing stockpiles of low-grade oxide ore
from the nearby government-owned Muruntau mine. The gold produced by
Zarafshan-Newmont is sold in international markets for U.S. dollars. Newmont
provides technical and managerial support to Zarafshan-Newmont. The State
Committee and Navoi guaranteed to furnish Zarafshan-Newmont with 242 million
tons of ore with an average grade of 0.036 ounces of gold per ton, containing
approximately 8.6 million ounces of gold. In late 2000, the ore supply
agreement was amended to add an additional 220 million tons of ore with an
average grade of 0.05 ounces of gold per ton. To handle the additional ore, the
joint venture has arranged for construction of a leach pad extension and an
expansion of the ore supply conveyor system. The amended agreement extends the
life of the operation to at least 2013. Ore placement on the heap leach pad
expansion project is scheduled for the beginning of 2002.

   For the nine months ended September 30, 2001, total sales were 325,200
ounces (162,600 equity ounces) at a total cash cost of US$136 per ounce.

   TURKEY

   The Ovacik gold mine is located on the western Aegean coast of Turkey. New
Newmont will own 100% of the mine. The first gold was produced in May 2001. The
mine is the subject of regulatory action which could result in its closure.

   AFRICA

   COTE D'IVOIRE

   The Ity gold mine is located in Cote d'Ivoire, West Africa. Normandy has
disclosed that Normandy La Source has accepted an offer for the sale of its
interest in the Ity gold mine.

   TVX NORMANDY

   TVX Normandy was formed in June 1999 as a strategic alliance between
Normandy and TVX Gold. TVX Normandy will be 49.9% owned by New Newmont and
50.1% owned by TVX Gold. The principal assets of TVX Normandy are interests in
the following operating gold mines in South America and Canada:

                                      82



   Paracatu (51% Rio Tinto Limited; 49% TVX Normandy). Rio Tinto is the
operator of the mine. For the twelve months ended June 30, 2001, Paracatu
produced 207,718 ounces of gold (100%) at a total cash cost of A$350 per ounce.

   Crixas (50% AngloGold; 50% TVX Normandy). AngloGold is the operator of the
mine. For the twelve months ended June 30, 2001, Crixas produced 192,985 ounces
of gold (100%) at total cash costs of A$212 per ounce.

   La Coipa (50% Placer Dome; 50% TVX Normandy). Placer Dome is the operator of
the mine. For the twelve months ended June 30, 2001, La Coipa's gold equivalent
production was 137,138 ounces at total cash costs of A$225 per ounce.

   Musselwhite (68.1% Placer Dome; 31.9% TVX Normandy). Placer Dome is the
operator of the mine. For the twelve months ended June 30, 2001, Musselwhite
produced 236,604 ounces of gold (100%) at total cash costs of A$318 per ounce.

   New Britannia (50% High River Gold; 50% TVX Normandy). TVX Normandy is the
operator of the mine. For the twelve months ended June 30, 2001, New Britannia
produced 105,849 ounces of gold (100%) at total cash costs of A$375 per ounce.

   DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS

   New Newmont will also have a several advanced gold projects in its portfolio
of assets. New Newmont will have the flexibility to optimize the development of
these projects based on project economics, political risk and free cash flow
profiles.

   The following table sets forth certain information with respect to New
Newmont's principal development projects:

   EXPLORATION

   New Newmont expects to have a 2002 exploration and research budget of
approximately US$75 million. It is expected that approximately 70% would be
applied to near-mine and regional exploration in existing districts, plus work
on advanced exploration and development projects in Indonesia and West Africa,
and approximately 30% on the worldwide search for new reserve opportunities
outside current operating districts, acceleration of select programs having
positive results,and on metallurgical research, operational optimization
studies and project evaluation.

   NON-GOLD ASSETS

   The following table sets forth certain information with respect to New
Newmont's non-gold operations:

        Kasese.................... Cobalt    Uganda              53.9%


   GOLDEN GROVE

   New Newmont will own 100% of the Golden Grove operation in Western
Australia. Golden Grove has two underground mines at the Scuddles and Gossan
Hill deposits with a combined mining rate of 1.2 million tonnes per year. The
principal product is zinc concentrate. A high precious metal ("HPM") lead
concentrate and low precious metal ("LPM") copper concentrate are also produced.

   Zinc production declined to 182,655 tonnes of concentrate (containing 82,391
tonnes of payable zinc metal) for the twelve months ended June 30, 2001. The
decline in zinc production was a direct result of separating zinc (895,164
tonnes) and copper ores (272,122 tonnes). The decline in zinc metal production
was directly offset by an increase in copper production to 11,008 tonnes of
payable copper metal.

   Current reserves at Scuddles and Gossan Hill are sufficient to support
approximately 4.5 years production at current production rates. However, the
Catalpa, Hougoumount and Amity deposits are expected to provide sufficient
additional ore to substantially extend the mine life. A pre-feasibility study
for the Amity deposit was completed in early 2001 and development commenced in
May 2001.

   AUSTRALIAN MAGNESIUM CORPORATION

   New Newmont will have a 22.8% voting interest in Australia Magnesium
Corporation, which has developed a proprietary process known as the AM Process,
a chemical and dehydration process for producing anhydrous magnesium chloride
suitable as feed for an electrolytic cell to produce molten magnesium metal.
Australia Magnesium has recently undertaken a A$525 million equity raising to
support the financing of the A$1.3 billion development of the Stanwell
magnesium project. Normandy has an obligation to contribute A$100 million in
equity between October 31, 2002 and January 31, 2003.

   KASESE

   New Newmont will hold an 86% interest in Banff Resources Ltd ("Banff"),
which in turn holds a 63% interest in the Kasese cobalt project (New Newmont
effective interest 54%) and an option to earn a 65% interest in the nearby
Kilembe mine and tailings. The Kasese cobalt project is located in western
Uganda. In June 2001, Normandy wrote down the carrying value of its interest in
the project to zero.

   ROYALTY BUSINESS

   New Newmont intends to continue to build upon the Franco-Nevada royalty and
merchant banking business as a newly formed unit of Newmont. In addition to its
own exploration programs, New Newmont will be active in assembling and
improving exploration land packages with the objective of vending the
properties to other operators in return for a royalty. New Newmont benefits
from any discoveries made by other operators on its royalty lands.

   New Newmont's royalty interests will generally be in the form of a net
smelter return royalty ("NSR") that provides for the payment either in cash or
physical metal of a specified percentage of production, less certain

                                      84



specified transportation and refining costs. In some cases, New Newmont will
own a net profit interest ("NPI") pursuant to which New Newmont is entitled to
a specified percentage of the net profits, as defined in each case, from a
particular mining operation.

   Several royalties are held by Franco-Nevada on certain Newmont and Normandy
properties, including portions of Deep Star, Deep Post, Gold Quarry, certain
exploration properties and all of Midas. Upon the merger of Newmont and
Franco-Nevada and the acquisition of Normandy, these royalties will be
eliminated in the consolidated results of New Newmont and are not listed or
described herein.

   The following is a description of New Newmont's principal gold royalties.

   GOLDSTRIKE

   New Newmont will hold various NSR and NPI royalties on the Goldstrike Mine
(Betze-Post and Meikle Mines) located in the Carlin Trend gold mining area of
northern Nevada. The Betze-Post and Meikle Mines are owned and operated by a
subsidiary of Barrick Gold Corporation ("Barrick"). The Betze-Post Mine is a
conventional open pit operation. The Betze-Post property consists of various
claim blocks and New Newmont's royalty interest in each claim block will be
different, ranging from 0% to 4% for the NSRs and 0% to 6% for the NPIs. On a
combined basis, New Newmont's NSRs and NPIs cover land containing 81.3% of the
Betze-Post Mine reserves and resources reported by Barrick as at December 31,
2000. The Meikle Mine is an underground operation comprising the Meikle, Rodeo
and Griffin deposits, located one mile north of the Betze-Post Mine that shares
the Goldstrike processing facilities with the Betze-Post Mine. New Newmont will
hold a 4% NSR and a 5% NPI over 1,280 acres of the claims that cover the
Meikle, Rodeo and Griffin deposits.

   New Newmont is not obliged to fund any portion of the cost associated with
the Betze-Post Mine or the Meikle Mine. Barrick's mining sequence from various
claim groups will cause fluctuations in New Newmont's royalty receipts. The NSR
royalties are based upon gross production from the mine, reduced only by the
ancillary costs of smelter charges and transportation of about US$2 per ounce.
The determinants of the revenue received from the NSRs covering the Betze-Post
Mine are the number of ounces of gold produced, New Newmont's selling price of
the gold, and the cost of shipping and smelting. The Post-Goldstrike NPI began
paying in October 1993, the month that the cumulative net profit from the Post
and Goldstrike claims exceeded capital invested in those claims. Net profits
are calculated as proceeds less costs. Proceeds equal the number of ounces of
gold produced from the Post and Goldstrike claims and the Meikle Mine,
multiplied by the spot price of gold on the date gold is credited to Barrick's
account at the refinery. Costs include operating and capital costs as incurred.

   In its public filings for the year ended December 31, 2000, Barrick reported
production of 1,647,000 ounces from the Betze-Post Mine with an estimate of
production in 2001 of 1,612,000 ounces. Similarly, production from the Meikle
Mine in 2000 was 806,000 ounces with an expected 669,000 ounces to be produced
in 2001. Barrick estimated proven and probable reserves at December 31, 2000
using a gold price of US$300 per ounce. The Betze-Post Mine was estimated to
contain 116.4 million tons grading 0.155 ounces per ton for 18.0 million
contained reserve ounces. The Meikle Mine, including the Rodeo and Griffin
deposits, was estimated to contain 14.1 million tons grading 0.458 ounces per
ton for 6.5 million contained reserve ounces.

   STILLWATER

   New Newmont will hold a 5% net smelter return royalty on a portion of the
Stillwater Mine and all of the East Boulder Mine located near Nye, Montana. The
Stillwater Mine and East Boulder Mine project are owned and operated by
Stillwater Mining Company ("Stillwater"), a U.S. public company listed on the
New York Stock Exchange. Stillwater produces palladium, platinum, and
associated metals (platinum group metals or PGMs) from a geological formation
known as the J-M Reef. Stillwater is the only significant producer of PGMs
outside of South Africa and Russia. The J-M Reef is an extensive mineralized
zone containing PGMs, which has been traced over a strike length of
approximately 28 miles.

                                      85



   The following table sets forth Stillwater's publicly reported proven and
probable palladium and platinum ore reserves as of December 31, 2000 and 1999.
The reserves reflected below are based on a cut-off grade in 2000 and 1999 of
0.3 ounces of palladium plus platinum per ton, and assume prices for palladium
and platinum of US$225 and US$350 per ounce, respectively, in 2000 and 1999.
Proven and probable reserves give effect to an average mining dilution of 10%
at zero grade based on actual mining experience.

(1) Expressed as palladium plus platinum ounces per ton at a ratio of 3.3 parts
    palladium to one part platinum, before processing losses of approximately
    10%.

   New Newmont's royalty covers more than 80% of the combined reserves and
resources of the deposit, but does not cover a portion of the deposit at the
Stillwater Mine. The majority of production to date has been from the
Stillwater Mine. For that reason, the percentage of ore mined from the royalty
lands has been lower than the 80% reserve percentage. For the years 1995
through 2000, the average annual percentage of production from the royalty
lands totalled 52.45%. The percentage of future production from the royalty
lands will vary from year to year. The royalty encompasses all of the reserves
at the East Boulder Mine, which is being developed approximately thirteen miles
to the west of the Stillwater Mine. Once the East Boulder Mine is producing,
the percentage of production from the royalty lands will increase. Ultimately,
the cumulative rate is expected to equal the percentage of reserves covered by
the royalty. During calendar 2000, Stillwater produced 430,000 ounces of PGMs.
On November 8, 2001, Stillwater announced that in light of sharply lower prices
for palladium and platinum it was modifying mine plans for both the Stillwater
and East Boulder Mines.

   OIL & GAS INTERESTS

   New Newmont will also be active in the oil and gas royalty business. Its oil
and gas portfolio contains 1.8 million gross acres of producing and
non-producing lands located in western Canada and the Canadian Arctic. The
average royalty on these lands is 6%. The portfolio contains long-life
reserves, is comprised of working interests ("WI") and/or overriding royalty
interests ("ORR") which are based on oil and gas well revenue less possible
deductions for transportation or processing. The following table sets forth
certain information with respect to New Newmont's principal oil and gas royalty
interests.

   New Newmont will own 14.1% (7,717,000 shares) of the outstanding common
shares of Aber Diamond Corporation ("Aber"). Aber is a Toronto based public
company listed on the TSE the principal asset of which is a 40% interest in the
Diavik Diamonds Project (the "Diavik Project") in the Northwest Territories,
Canada. Rio Tinto PLC is the 60% owner and is manager of the C$1.3 billion
development currently in progress.

   On November 2, 2001 Aber reported that it had accepted an underwritten
commitment from a lead group of five banks for a project loan facility of
US$230 million. The facility is sufficient to fund Aber's share of budgeted
expenditures to complete the Diavik Project and additional corporate
requirements. Aber also reported that construction of the Diavik Project is 60%
complete and is on budget and on schedule. Diamond sales are expected to
commence in the second quarter of 2003.

   ECHO BAY MINES LIMITED

   New Newmont will own approximately US$72.4 million principal amount of the
11% capital securities due April 2027 of Echo Bay Mines Ltd., a public company
trading on AMEX and the TSE. Echo Bay is a substantial gold company producing
695,000 ounces in calendar 2000 from four mines in the United States and
Canada. Echo Bay operates the Round Mountain and McCoy-Cove mines in Nevada.

   At September 30, 2001, the principal plus accrued interest on the Echo Bay
capital securities to be owned by New Newmont amounted to US$115.3 million. It
is New Newmont's intention to convert all its Echo Bay capital securities into
Echo Bay common shares and to maintain an initial approximate 49.5% equity
interest in Echo Bay. The conversion is subject to the approval of Echo Bay
shareholders and is conditional on regulatory approvals. Proxy materials are
currently under review with regulatory authorities. The conversion of the Echo
Bay capital securities into common shares will likely occur prior to the
creation of New Newmont.

   PROVEN AND PROBABLE RESERVES

   New Newmont's equity in proven and probable gold reserves was 92.7 million
ounces using combined publicly reported reserves for Newmont Mining Corporation
as at December 31, 2000, and Normandy Mining Ltd. as at June 30, 2001. To the
extent of production since these reporting dates, such reserves have been
depleted and are thus lower than stated. Reserves are published once each year
and will be recalculated as of December 31, 2001, and June 30, 2002 for Newmont
and Normandy, respectively, taking into account such depletion as well as any
additions to reserves based on results of exploration and development work
performed during 2001/2002. Of these reserves, approximately 483,333 ounces
have been committed under prepaid forward

                                      87



sales contracts. In addition, the company's equity in proven and probable
copper and zinc reserves was 7.1 billion and 454 million pounds, respectively,
using the same reporting dates as for gold.

   Proven and probable reserves were determined by the use of mapping,
drilling, sampling, assaying and evaluation methods generally applied in the
mining industry. Calculations with respect to the estimates of proven and
probable gold reserves were based on a gold price of US$300 per ounce for
Newmont's reserve share, whereas Normandy's reserve share was based on a range
of A$450 to $500 per ounce at all properties except the TVX-Americas (Canada,
South America) reserves which were based on a gold price of US$300 per ounce.
Newmont estimated that if its reserve estimates had been based on a gold price
of $275 per ounce, 2000 year-end proven and probable gold reserves could have
decreased by approximately 8%.

   The proven and probable reserves figures presented herein are estimates, and
no assurance can be given that the indicated levels of recovery of gold,
copper, and zinc will be realized. Ounces of gold or pounds of copper or zinc
in our proven and probable reserves are prior to any losses during
metallurgical treatment. Reserve estimates may require revision based on actual
production experience. Market price fluctuations of gold, copper, and zinc, as
well as increased production costs or reduced recovery rates, could render our
proven and probable reserves containing relatively lower grades of
mineralization uneconomic to exploit and might result in a reduction of
reserves.

(1) The term "reserve" means that part of a mineral deposit which can be
    economically and legally extracted or produced at the time of the reserve
    determination.

   The term "economically," as used in the definition of reserve, implies that
   profitable extraction or production has been established or analytically
   demonstrated to be viable and justifiable under reasonable investment and
   market assumptions.

   The term "legally," as used in the definition of reserve, does not imply
   that all permits needed for mining and processing have been obtained or that
   other legal issues have been completely resolved. However, for a reserve to
   exist, there should be a reasonable certainty based on applicable laws and
   regulations that issuance of permits or resolution of legal issues can be
   accomplished in a timely manner.

   The term "proven reserves" means reserves for which (a) quantity is computed
   from dimensions revealed in outcrops, trenches, workings or drill holes; (b)
   grade and/or quality are computed from the result of detailed sampling and
   (c) the sites for inspection, sampling and measurements are spaced so
   closely and the geologic character is sufficiently defined that size, shape,
   depth and mineral content of reserves are well established.

                                      91



   The term "probable reserves" means reserves for which quantity and grade are
   computed from information similar to that used for proven reserves but the
   sites for sampling are farther apart or are otherwise less adequately
   spaced. The degree of assurance, although lower than that for proven
   reserves, is high enough to assume continuity between points of observation.

(2) Ore Reserves and Material Not in Reserve follow two reporting requirements.
    For Newmont's share, reporting conforms to the reporting guidelines of the
    "Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration (SME), Inc.", (SME
    Guidelines) and the United States Security and Exchange Commission (U.S.
    S.E.C.) reporting rules. For Normandy's share, reporting conforms to the
    reporting requirements of the "Australasian Code for Reporting of
    Identified Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves", (JORC Code) and the
    Australian Stock Exchange Listing Rules. For both Newmont and Normandy,
    results are compiled and reported by various "competent persons" as defined
    by the SME Guidelines and JORC Code. In this table, proved and probable
    reserves are contained.

(3) The Term "Material not in Reserve" represents combined, measured, indicated
    and inferred "mineral resources" in the JORC Code and are here reported as
    additional to the ore reserves. The use of the term "Mineral Resource" and
    reporting its contained ounces is not allowed by the U.S. S.E.C.

(4) Tonnages are after allowances for losses resulting from mining methods.

(5) Contained ounces or pounds are estimates of metal contained in ore tonnages
    and are before allowances for processing losses. Estimated losses from
    processing are expressed as recovery rates and represent the estimated
    amount of metal to be recovered through metallurgical extraction processes.

(6) The 9.74% interest in the Lihir Gold Mine was not reported as a reserve
    asset by Newmont (the shares are currently held by Newmont as available for
    sale marketable securities), but would represent approximately 1.2 million
    ounces equity reserve if reported as such.

(7) Percentage reflects Newmont's economic interest.

(8) Material available to Zarafshan-Newmont for processing from designated
    stockpiles or from other specified sources. Tonnage and gold content of
    material available to Zarafshan-Newmont for processing from such designated
    stockpiles or from other specified sources are guaranteed by state entities
    of Uzbekistan.

(9) Gurupi counted only once on 100% tabulations.

(10)Pajingo counted only once on 100% tabulations.

(11)Reserve figures do not include reserves attributable to Franco-Nevada's
    royalty interests, which would be the equivalent of approximately 2 million
    ounces reserves net to Franco-Nevada, nor do they include its 49.5%
    interest in Echo Bay Mining Company which would represent approximately 2.2
    million ounces. Additionally, Franco-Nevada has equity positions in two
    properties that contain "Mineral Resources" that may not meet Newmont's
    criteria for "Material not in Reserve" and as such are not reported in this
    table.

   ENVIRONMENTAL MATTERS

   U.S. OPERATIONS

   New Newmont's gold mining and processing operations within the U.S. are
subject to extensive federal, state and local governmental regulations for the
protection of the environment, including those relating to the protection of
air and water quality, hazardous waste management and mine reclamation. New
Newmont will strive to set industry standards of excellence for its
environmental practices and does not believe that ongoing compliance with
current regulations will have a material adverse effect on its competitive
position. New Newmont does not expect any material impact on its future costs
of compliance based on existing environmental regulations. Since New Newmont
cannot pass on any increases in costs to its customers, new laws and
regulations resulting in higher compliance costs could have an adverse effect
on its future profitability.

   Exclusive of Midas operations, New Newmont estimates that compliance with
federal, state and local regulations relating to the protection of the
environment required capital expenditures of approximately US$1.0 million in
2000 at New Newmont's domestic operations. New Newmont estimates that it will
require at least US$1.4 million of capital expenditures for environmental
compliance in the U.S. in 2001 and annually thereafter.

   Each currently operating Newmont mine has a reclamation plan in place that
meets all currently enacted legal and regulatory requirements. Estimated future
costs for reclamation are accrued over the life of each mine and, at September
30, 2001, an aggregate US$120.3 million had been accrued for reclamation costs
relating to currently producing Newmont mineral properties. Normandy has
indicated that as of June 30, 2001, it had accrued US$1.6 million for
reclamation at its Midas mine.

   RECLAMATION AND REMEDIATION OF INACTIVE SITES WITHIN THE UNITED STATES

   New Newmont will have environmental remediation obligations arising from
past mining activities at four separate locations: Telluride/Ouray (Colorado),
Leadville (Colorado), San Luis (Colorado) and Washington State. At September
30, 2001, on a consolidated basis, Newmont had an aggregate US$58.6 million
accrued for remediation of these and other sites.

   ENVIRONMENTAL LAWS OF AUSTRALIA

   The Australian operations of New Newmont will be subject to Australian State
and Federal laws and regulations regarding environmental matters. These laws
and regulations set various standards regulating health and environmental
quality, provide for penalties and other liabilities for the violation of such
standards and establish, in certain circumstances, obligations to remediate
current and former facilities and locations where operations are or were
conducted. New Newmont will also be required to have, and comply with, permits
for its existing operations from the relevant environmental authorities.

   Liability could be imposed on New Newmont for damages, clean-up costs or
penalties if it discharges pollution into the environment or does not comply
with environmental laws or regulations (including its permits). As at June 30,
2001, Normandy had made a provision of A$136.5 million for estimated
rehabilitation expenditure, mine decommissioning and closure costs.
Rehabilitation costs include regrading waste dumps, revegetation and erosion
and drainage control.

   There may be sites of Aboriginal heritage or significance located on the
land on which New Newmont's operations are situated. This could impose
restrictions on New Newmont's ability to operate from that site.

   Some of the sites operated by New Newmont may also be subject to native
title claims. If so, New Newmont may require consent from the traditional
owners of that land to carry out mining operations. Such consent may be given
on terms which are not acceptable to the company, or may otherwise increase the
cost of operations at such sites.

   ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION IN OPERATIONS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES AND
AUSTRALIA

   New Newmont's interests outside the United States and Australia will also be
subject to governmental regulations for the protection of the environment.
These regulations have not had, and are not expected to have, a material
adverse impact on New Newmont's operations or its competitive position.

   New Newmont will be committed to adopting and adhering to standards that are
protective of human health and the environment. All of the international
projects managed by New Newmont will adopt and implement environmental policies
and procedures developed by Newmont.

   LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

   In December 1983, the State of Colorado filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District
Court for the District of Colorado under the Comprehensive Environmental
Response Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 ("CERCLA"). This case, State of
Colorado v. ASARCO, Inc., et al. (Civil Action No. 83-C-2388), was subsequently
consolidated with another action, United States of America v. Apache Energy &
Minerals, et al. (Civil Action No. 86-C-1676), which was filed in August 1986.
Both cases involve allegations of environmental impairment in the vicinity of
Leadville, Colorado, including the area of the operations and property of the
Res-ASARCO Joint Venture, the Yak Tunnel, and adjacent property, and seek
remedial actions and damages from a number of defendants, including Newmont and
Resurrection Mining Company, which was a partner with ASARCO Incorporated in
the Res-ASARCO Joint Venture. In August 1994, the Court entered a Partial
Consent Decree between and among the U.S., Newmont, Resurrection and certain
other defendants. The Partial Consent

                                      93



Decree obligates Resurrection to pay for and perform the cleanup of sources of
contamination in various areas, pursuant to the CERCLA administrative process.
During 1995 and 1996, Resurrection implemented and completed remedial action at
selected locations, and developed feasibility studies which were sent to the
EPA for approval in 1997. Remedial activities were conducted in 2000 and 2001.
The precise nature of the final remedial activities is subject to EPA and State
of Colorado review and selection and public comment. At this time, the precise
remedy and cost have not been fixed. The proposed settlement also requires
Resurrection to reimburse the EPA and the State of Colorado for their response
costs. The Partial Consent Decree does not resolve certain other potential
liabilities, including liability for any natural resource damages and any
groundwater or surface water contamination.

   In June 2000, an independent trucking contractor spilled approximately 151
kilograms of mercury near the town of Choropampa, Peru which is located 53
miles southwest of the Minera Yanacocha mine. The mercury, a byproduct of gold
mining, was being transported from the mine to a buyer in Lima for use in
medical instrumentations and other industrial applications. A comprehensive
health and environmental remediation program was initiated by Minera Yanacocha
immediately following the accident and it also entered into agreements with
three of the communities impacted by the incident to provide a variety of
public works as compensation for the disruption and on September 10, 2001,
Newmont, various wholly owned subsidiaries and Minera Yanacocha S.R.L. (51.35%
owned by Newmont Second Capital Corporation) and other defendants were named in
a lawsuit filed by over 900 Peruvian citizens in Denver District Court for the
State of Colorado. This action seeks compensatory and punitive damages based on
claims associated with the mercury spill incident. The response to the
Complaint was filed in late October. Neither Newmont nor Minera Yanacocha can
reasonably predict the likelihood or amount of any additional expenditures
related to this matter.

   Franco-Nevada received a Notice of Request for Information, dated September
23, 1997, from the EPA alleging that Franco Inc. may be a potentially
responsible party ("PRP") and seeking information about the Lava Cap Mine
Superfund Removal Site near Nevada City, California. Franco Inc. fully
responded to the request for information from the EPA and denied any liability
under any applicable law. Franco Inc. has not been named a PRP, and no further
actions have been taken by the EPA with respect to Franco Inc. DE MICROMUS
settlement discussions (through which Franco Inc. would settle for less than
$50,000) are being pursued, but there has been no response to date.

   Franco-Nevada received a Notice of Request for Information, dated August 24,
1998, from the United States Forest Service ("USFS"), Uinta National Forest,
alleging that Franco Inc. may be a PRP and seeking information about allegedly
needed environmental clean-up at the Pacific Mine, Utah County, Utah. Franco
Inc. fully responded to the request for information from the USFS and denied
any liability under any applicable law. Franco Inc. has not been named a PRP,
and no further actions have been taken by the USFS with respect to Franco Inc.

   A dispute exists between Thiess Contractors Pty Ltd ("Thiess") and Normandy
Golden Grove Operations Pty Ltd ("NGGO"), a wholly owned entity, in respect of
a claim for additional and unexpected costs arising from the development of the
Gossan Hill Project decline. Conciliation procedures have failed to resolve the
dispute. Thiess claimed approximately A$11 million in damages. NGGO have made a
counterclaim of A$0.9 million and made an offer of A$2.1 million. Thiess is
still to fully comply with an order by the court to reissue an amended
statement of claim. Litigation in the Supreme Court of Western Australia is
proceeding.

   In a Federal Court action brought by ASIC against Yandal Gold Pty Ltd. the
judge found the defendants to have committed various breaches of the
Corporations Law and ordered payment by Edensor Nominees Pty Ltd ("Edensor") to
ASIC of A$28.5 million for distribution to former Normandy Yandal Operations
Limited shareholders. An appeal by Edensor to the Full Court of the Federal
Court, to which Normandy became a party on the application of ASIC, was allowed
on the basis that the Federal Court lacked jurisdiction to make the order. This
decision was appealed to the High Court, which decided that the Full Federal
Court was wrong. The High Court held that the Federal Court did have
jurisdiction to hear and determine the matter and make orders under

                                      94



the Corporations law. The High Court has sent the matter back to the Full
Federal Court to determine Edensor's appeal on the merits. If that appeal is
unsuccessful then Edensor will be obligated to pay the A$28.5 million. The
consolidated entity has agreed to pay half of this amount.

   Disputes exist between a controlled entity of Normandy, Banff Resources Ltd.
and a third party in respect of a claim for part-ownership in the Kilembe mine.
The third party has lodged a claim for specific performance and damages with
courts in Uganda and Canada. The disputes are currently awaiting hearing and
the controlled entity intends to defend the action.

   Orica Australia Limited has commended proceedings against a former
controlled entity of Normandy, Normandy Industrial Minerals Limited ("NIML"),
in respect of the supply of sand used in the manufacture of paints. A
controlled entity has indemnified the purchaser of NIML in respect of this
claim.

   Disputes exist between a controlled entity of Normandy and contractors in
respect of the Kasese Cobalt project. Claims have been lodged by contractors
for additional payment in respect of extensions of time and additional costs.
The claims are in the process of being evaluated.

BUSINESS OF NORMANDY

  DISCLAIMER INFORMATION IN RELATION TO NORMANDY

   We conducted a due diligence review of limited information and documents
made available by Normandy to us before announcing our offer for Normandy
shares.  Information included in this proxy statement/prospectus relating to
Normandy and its business is based on publicly available information about
Normandy, including Normandy's 2001 annual report and quarterly activities
report for the quarter ended September 30, 2001 and Normandy's target
statement. Pursuant to Rule 409 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933,
on December 17, 2001, we requested that Normandy and its independent public
accountants provide to us all material information required to be included in
our offer document or required to make statements made in the offer document
not misleading. On December 11, 2001, we requested that Normandy's independent
public accountants consent in a customary manner to the inclusion of its audit
reports with respect to the financial statements of Normandy included in our
offer document. On December 14, 2001, Normandy's independent public accountants
responded in writing to our December 11, 2001 letter stating that they were
reluctant to give consent for the inclusion of its audit report where consent
has not been given for the financial statements themselves, and believed it was
appropriate that its consent be given concurrently with Normandy's consent. On
December 19, 2001, Normandy, on its own behalf and on behalf of its
accountants, responded in writing to our December 17, 2001 letter and stated
that it was not appropriate for Normandy to bear any burden as to what our
offer document should contain and whether or not that document was misleading.
Normandy further stated that if there were specifics which Newmont wished to
refer to Normandy for review and comment, Normandy would consider whether it
could be of assistance and to what extent, on a case by case basis. In
addition, Normandy stated that its accountants were not in a position to
provide assistance to us, that work on U.S. GAAP reconciliation of its
financial statements had not been completed to Normandy's satisfaction and that
Normandy had not yet determined whether it would allow U.S. GAAP reconciliation
of its financial statements to be made public at this time. We will provide any
and all information that we receive from Normandy or its independent
accountants prior to the expiration of the offer that we deem material,
reliable and appropriate in a subsequently prepared amendment or supplement
hereto.

   While we have included information in this document concerning Normandy that
is known to us based on publicly available information, other than as described
above, we have not had access to material non-public information regarding
Normandy and could not use any such information for the purpose of preparing
this document. Although we have no knowledge that would indicate that
statements relating to Normandy contained in this offer document are inaccurate
or incomplete, we are not in a position to verify information concerning
Normandy. We and our respective directors and officers are not aware of any
errors in such information.

  GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF NORMANDY'S OPERATIONS

   Normandy is a gold company with extensive production and exploration
interests. Normandy has operations in Australia, the United States, New
Zealand, Turkey, Chile, Brazil and Canada. Normandy is also a producer of zinc
concentrate (from Golden Grove), cobalt (from Kasese) and magnesium (from
Australian Magnesium Corporation Limited). A detailed description of Normandy's
operations and investments has been included in "The Companies--Business of New
Newmont" on page 71.

   GOLD OPERATIONS.  During the financial year ended June 30, 2001, Normandy
had attributable gold production of 2.2 million ounces. In addition to its

   Australian Magnesium Corporation Limited is an Australian publicly listed
company based in Brisbane which developed and is now seeking to commercialize
the Australian Magnesium process technology to produce magnesium metal. The AM
process is expected to produce magnesium metal at the lowest cost in the world.
This is done through a number of chemical processes. The process aims to
minimize all effluents and, where possible, recycle them for other purposes.

   Following development of the technology of the AM process, Australian
Magnesium Corporation Limited entered into an agreement in January 1997 with
Ford Motor Company of America, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research
Organisation and Fluor Daniel Pty Ltd to construct a 1,500 tpa demonstration
plant and to complete a full feasibility study. The viability of the AM process
was confirmed following successful production of magnesium metal ingots from
the operational demonstration plant in August 1999. In March 2000, Australian
Magnesium Corporation Limited announced a positive feasibility recommendation
for the proposed commercial plant, located at Stanwell, near Rockhampton in
Queensland. Australian Magnesium Corporation Limited has also committed to
selling 45,000 tpa of magnesium alloy to Ford under a long-term contract.

   RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

   In May 2001, Normandy acquired 100% ownership in the Midas gold mine and 105
square kilometers of highly prospective adjoining tenements. This transaction
positions Normandy in the prolific gold-producing Carlin Trend of northern
Nevada in the United States.

   On June 5, 2001, Australian Magnesium Corporation Limited announced the
finalization of a A$932 million underwritten debt financing for the development
of its Stanwell Magnesium Project.

   On July 20, 2001, Australian Magnesium Corporation Limited announced that it
had withdrawn the A$680 million equity offering to complete funding development
for its Stanwell Magnesium Project.

   On August 14, 2001, Normandy Mt Leyshon Limited announced that, due to the
scheduled closure of the Mt Leyshon mine in February 2002, the directors of
Normandy Mt Leyshon Limited had proposed a cash distribution of A$0.33 per
share and a restructuring of the company as an alternative to orderly
liquidation. The new company would have a specific strategic focus on
exploration and would hold tenements in the Mt Leyshon district as well as a
portfolio of exploration properties, including tenements in the Musgrave region
of Western Australia and in the Kidston, Agate Creek and Cloncurry regions of
Queensland, Australia. As part of the transfer of the tenement package,
Normandy would be issued with shares representing 12% of the new company. In
the announcement of August 14, 2001, Normandy Mt. Leyshon Limited stated that
if these proposals are not approved by its shareholders, Normandy Mt Leyshon
Limited intends to make an interim distribution of A$0.25 per share with the
prospect of a final distribution of between A$0.10 and A$0.15 per share.

   On September 5, 2001, AngloGold announced its intention to offer to acquire
all the outstanding Normandy shares for 2.15 AngloGold shares in exchange for
every 100 Normandy shares. On that same day, Normandy responded to AngloGold's
offer by announcing that it had appointed Macquarie Bank to assist Normandy's
board of directors in assessing AngloGold's offer and in preparing a formal
recommendation to Normandy shareholders and Normandy ADS holders with respect
to AngloGold's offer.

   On September 27, 2001, Australian Magnesium Corporation Limited announced
that, due to unstable conditions in equity and capital markets, it is reviewing
the timing of its equity raising to fund the development of the Stanwell
Magnesium Project.

   On September 28, 2001, Normandy published its annual shareholder report

Australian Magnesium Corporation Limited by A$10.6 million to fund expenses of
the Stanwell Magnesium Project until completion of the capital raising.

   On October 25, 2001, Normandy published its first quarter report to
shareholders including unaudited condensed financial information for the three
months ended September 30, 2001.

   On November 14, 2000, Normandy, Newmont and Franco-Nevada announced that
Newmont intended to make a recommended offer of 0.0385 shares of Newmont common
stock for each Normandy share. In addition, Newmont offered to pay A$0.05 per
Normandy share in cash if the Newmont offer was accepted by holders of at least
90% of the Normandy shares. Newmont also agreed to acquire Franco-Nevada in a
stock-for-stock transaction, in which Franco-Nevada common shareholders will
receive 0.8 a share of Newmont common stock (or exchangeable shares,
exchangeable for Newmont common stock) for each share of Franco-Nevada common
stock pursuant to a Canadian plan of arrangement.

   On November 19, 2001, Normandy published its response document in which the
Normandy board of directors recommended that holders of Normandy shares and
Normandy ADSs not accept AngloGold's previous offer to acquire all of the
outstanding Normandy shares for 2.15 AngloGold shares in exchange for every 100
Normandy shares. The board of directors of Normandy has not yet made a
recommendation to the Normandy shareholders and Normandy ADS holders regarding
the revised terms of the AngloGold offer.

   On November 19, 2001, Australian Magnesium Corporation Limited announced

                                  NEW NEWMONT

          UNAUDITED PRO FORMA COMBINED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

   The following unaudited pro forma financial information has been prepared to
assist you in your analysis of the financial effects of the acquisition of (a)
Normandy Mining Limited ("Normandy") only and (b) the acquisition of Normandy
and the merger of Franco-Nevada Mining Corporation Limited ("Franco-Nevada")
(collectively the "Transactions"). This information was derived for each of the
respective companies as follows:

   . Newmont information was derived from its unaudited financial statements as
     of and for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2001 and its audited
     financial statements as of and for the twelve-month period ended December
     31, 2000. Newmont's historical information was prepared using accounting
     principles generally accepted in the United States ("US GAAP") and in
     United States Dollars ("US$").

   . Normandy's information was compiled solely from unaudited publicly
     available information for the same periods as Newmont's, as described
     above. It should be noted, however, that Normandy has declined to assist
     in gathering this information and has not provided Newmont access to
     Normandy's detailed accounting records, nor has Normandy assisted in
     preparing reconciliations to US GAAP. Normandy's historical financial data
     is presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted
     in Australia ("Australian GAAP"), which differs in certain significant
     respects from US GAAP. These differences as they relate to Normandy cannot
     be fully quantified due to the limited disclosures provided in publicly
     available financial information. Pursuant to Rule 409 promulgated under
     the Securities Act of 1933, on December 17, 2001, we requested that
     Normandy and its independent public accountants provide to us all material
     information required to be included in our offer document or required to
     make statements made in the document not misleading. On December 11, 2001,
     we requested that Normandy's independent public accountants consent in a
     customary manner to the inclusion of its audit reports with respect to the
     financial statements of Normandy included in our proxy
     statement/prospectus. On December 14, 2001, Normandy's independent public
     accountants responded in writing to our December 11, 2001 letter stating
     that they were reluctant to give consent for the inclusion of its audit
     report where consent has not been given for the financial statements
     themselves, and believed it was appropriate that its consent be given
     concurrently with Normandy's consent. On December 19, 2001, Normandy, on
     its own behalf and on behalf of its accountants, responded in writing to
     our December 17, 2001 letter and stated that it was not appropriate for
     Normandy to bear any burden as to what the offer document should contain
     and whether or not that document was misleading. Normandy further stated
     that if there were specifics which Newmont wished to refer to Normandy for
     review and comment, Normandy would consider whether it could be of
     assistance and to what extent, on a case by case basis. In addition,
     Normandy stated that its accountants were not in a position to provide
     assistance to us, that work on US GAAP reconciliation of its financial
     statements had not been completed to Normandy's satisfaction and that
     Normandy had not yet determined whether it would allow US GAAP
     reconciliation of its financial statements to be made public at this time.
     As a result, we have had to rely on our best estimates in presenting these
     reconciliations to US GAAP of figures prepared in accordance with
     Australian GAAP and Australian Dollars ("A$"). Errors in such estimates
     may be material.

   . Franco-Nevada's information was derived from its unaudited financial
     statements as of September 30, 2001 by combining its results of operations
     for the six-month period ended September 30, 2001 with the three month
     period ended March 31, 2001 and from its audited financial statements for
     the twelve-month period ended March 31, 2001. Franco-Nevada's historical
     information was prepared using accounting principles generally accepted in
     Canada ("Canadian GAAP") and Canadian Dollars ("C$").

                                      105



   . Exchange rates used to convert information as of September 30, 2001, and
     for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2001, for the twelve-month
     period ended December 31, 2000 and for the twelve-month period ended March
     31, 2001 were:



                                                A$ TO US$       C$ TO US$
                                             --------------- ---------------
                                                       
    As of September 30, 2001:............... A$2.028 to US$1 C$1.579 to US$1
    Average rate for the nine-month period
      ended September 30, 2001.............. A$1.929 to US$1 C$1.538 to US$1
    Average rate for the twelve-month period
      ended December 31, 2000............... A$1.727 to US$1       --
    Average rate for the twelve-month period
      ended March 31, 2001..................       --        C$1.503 to US$1


   The information prepared is only a summary and should be read in conjunction
with the historical financial statements and related notes contained in the
annual reports and other information that Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada
have filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Australian Stock
Exchange Limited and various securities commissions and similar authorities in
Canada, respectively. Certain of this information has been included in exhibits
to the Form S-4 in which the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Financial
Information is included.

   Several factors should be considered when comparing the historical financial
information of Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada to the Unaudited Pro Forma
Combined Condensed Financial Information, including the following:

   . The Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Balance Sheet gives effect to
     the Transactions as if they had occurred on September 30, 2001. The
     Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Statement of Operations for the
     nine-month period ended September 30, 2001 and the twelve-month period
     ended December 31, 2000 gives effect to the Transactions as if they had
     occurred on January 1, 2000.

   . Normandy's fiscal year end is on June 30 and Franco-Nevada's fiscal year
     end is on March 31. Newmont's fiscal year end is on December 31. The
     combined company will utilize December 31 as its fiscal year end. Due to
     the limited and summarized nature of publicly available information
     associated with Normandy for the periods presented in the Unaudited Pro
     Forma Combined Condensed Financial Information, the information presented
     is in a condensed format. Newmont has converted the unaudited Normandy
     financial information to US GAAP by estimating the impact of known
     differences between Australian GAAP and US GAAP, without the cooperation
     of Normandy management. For this reason, the US GAAP reconciliation does
     not necessarily incorporate all adjustments that might be necessary to
     accurately reflect Normandy on a US GAAP basis. The financial information
     presented by Franco-Nevada for the nine-month period ended September 30,
     2001 has been compiled by the management of Franco-Nevada, although there
     is no historic publicly available information that portrays the results of
     operations for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2001. Results of
     Franco-Nevada for the three-month period ended March 31, 2001 are included
     in both the nine-month and the twelve-month Unaudited Pro Forma Combined
     Condensed Statements of Operations.

   . The Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Financial Information has been
     prepared to present all companies on a US GAAP basis. The accounting
     policies of Normandy and Franco-Nevada are believed to be in line with
     those of Newmont in all material respects, except for differences in each
     company's respective generally accepted accounting principles basis.
     Newmont management will continue to evaluate differences in accounting
     policies in more detail prior to the completion of the Transactions.

   . Certain line items presented, as reported by Normandy and Franco-Nevada on
     their historical statements of operations and balance sheets have been
     presented to conform to the method of presentation utilized by Newmont.

                                      106



   . Expected annual savings resulting from operating synergies have not been
     reflected as adjustments to the historical data. The cost savings are
     expected to result from the consolidation of the corporate headquarters of
     Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada, elimination of duplicate staff and
     expenses, rationalization of exploration spending, operating savings,
     interest and taxes, all of which are estimated to be $70 million to $80
     million after tax during the first full year of combined operations.

   The Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Financial Information is for
illustrative purposes only. If the Transactions had occurred in the past, the
combined company's financial position and operating results likely would have
been different from that presented in the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined
Condensed Balance Sheet and the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed
Statement of Operations. Due to the nature of pro forma information, it may not
give a true picture of the combined company's financial position and results of
operations. Newmont believes that the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed
Financial Information may not be indicative of the future financial performance
of the combined companies.

   In addition, the purchase price allocation is preliminary and will be
finalized following the closing of the Transactions based on the actual fair
value of current assets, current liabilities, indebtedness, reclamation and
remediation liabilities, derivative instruments, marketable securities, a more
extensive analysis of the fair value of mining and royalty interests acquired
and identifiable intangible assets, the final number of shares issued for
Normandy's and Franco-Nevada's outstanding shares and stock options and
Franco-Nevada's warrants that are outstanding at closing. We are continuing to
evaluate all of these items; accordingly, the final purchase prices are
expected to differ in material respects from that presented in the Unaudited
Pro Forma Combined Condensed Balance Sheet. The Unaudited Pro Forma Combined
Condensed Financial Information should not be relied on as an indication of the
financial position or operating results that the combined company would have
achieved if the Transactions had occurred in the past. The Unaudited Pro Forma
Combined Condensed Financial Information should also not be relied on as an
indication of future results that Newmont will achieve after the Transaction.

   ACQUISITIONS OF NORMANDY AND FRANCO-NEVADA

   The following pro forma financial statements are estimates of the Unaudited
Pro Forma Combined Condensed Financial Information of Newmont as of September
30, 2001, for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2001 and for the
twelve-month period ended December 31, 2000, assuming the purchase of (a)
Normandy and (b) Normandy and Franco-Nevada. Two sets of Unaudited Pro Forma
Balance Sheets and Unaudited Pro Forma Results of Operations are presented in
the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Financial Information:

   . The first set displays the transactions as if 100% of Normandy is
     acquired, and then 100% of Franco-Nevada is acquired.

   . The second set displays the transaction as if only 50.1% of Normandy is
     acquired, and then 100% of Franco-Nevada is acquired.

     NOTES TO UNAUDITED PRO FORMA COMBINED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1--BASIS OF PRESENTATION

   The Pro Forma presentation reflects the acquisition of Normandy, at both the
100% and 50.1% levels, and the acquisition of 100% of Franco-Nevada as
purchases for accounting purposes. In the Normandy Transaction, Newmont
estimates that it will issue 85.92 million of its common shares to shareholders
of Normandy to acquire 100% of Normandy. In the Transaction scenario where
50.1% of Normandy is acquired, Newmont estimates that it will issue 43.05
million common shares to shareholders of Normandy. Newmont estimates that it
will issue 109.96 million of its common shares to shareholders of
Franco-Nevada, net of Normandy shares held by Franco-Nevada. Newmont is
offering 3.85 of its common shares for 100 ordinary shares of Normandy common
stock, together with A$0.40 cash consideration for each share of Normandy
common stock, with the exception of the 19.79% of ordinary shares of Normandy,
calculated on a fully-diluted basis, that are owned by Franco-Nevada. The
Shares will be acquired through Newmont's call option on 19.79% of the Normandy
shares held by Franco-Nevada, based on Franco-Nevada receiving 0.0385 share of
Newmont for each ordinary share of Normandy owned by Franco-Nevada. The
exchange ratio for the acquisition of Franco-Nevada is 0.8 common shares of
Newmont's common stock for every share of Franco-Nevada.

   The accompanying Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Balance Sheet gives
effect to the acquisition of Normandy and the acquisition of Franco-Nevada as
of September 30, 2001. The accompanying Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed
Statement of Operations for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2001
includes historical revenues and expenses of Newmont, Normandy and
Franco-Nevada for those nine months, adjusted to US GAAP. The accompanying
Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Statement of Operations for the
twelve-month period ended December 31, 2000 includes historical revenues and
expenses of Newmont and Normandy for those twelve months and the twelve-month
period ended March 31, 2001 for Franco-Nevada, all adjusted to US GAAP. The
Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Statements of Operations have been
adjusted for the pro forma effect of the Transactions as if they had occurred
at January 1, 2000.

   Results of Franco-Nevada for the three-month period ended March 31, 2001 are
included in both the nine-month and the twelve-month Unaudited Pro Forma
Combined Condensed Statements of Operations. Summary information for this
three-month period ended March 31, 2001 is as follows:

   Normandy's fiscal year end is on June 30 and Franco-Nevada's fiscal year end
is on March 31. Newmont's fiscal year end is on December 31. The combined
company will utilize December 31 as its fiscal year end. Due to the limited and
summarized nature of publicly available information associated with Normandy
for the periods presented in the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed
Financial Information, the information presented is in a condensed format.
Newmont has converted the unaudited Normandy financial information to US GAAP
by estimating the impact of known differences between Australian GAAP and US
GAAP without the cooperation of Normandy management. For this reason, the US
GAAP reconciliation does not necessarily incorporate all adjustments that might
be necessary to accurately reflect Normandy on a US GAAP basis. The financial

                                      116



information presented by Franco-Nevada for the nine-month period ended
September 30, 2001 has been compiled by the management of Franco-Nevada,
although there is no historic publicly available information that portrays the
results of operations for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2001.

   The Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Balance Sheet and the Unaudited
Pro Forma Combined Condensed Statement of Operations do not include all
information and notes required by US GAAP for complete financial statements.
However, except as disclosed herein, there has been no material change in the
information disclosed in the annual reports and other information that Newmont,
Normandy and Franco-Nevada have filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, the Australian Stock Exchange Limited and the Office of Canadian
Securities, respectively, for the years ended December 31, 2000, June 30, 2001
and March 31, 2001, respectively. The Franco-Nevada statement of operations
included herein has been prepared to reflect the disposition of a business
segment. This disposition has been presented on a comparable basis for all
periods shown including Franco-Nevada's restated statements filed as part of
this document.

NOTE 2--US GAAP ADJUSTMENTS TO NORMANDY

   The following notes set out the basis and assumptions on which the Normandy
Australian GAAP financial statements were adjusted to approximate US GAAP. In
addition, some balance sheet items have been reclassified to conform the
presentation with that of Newmont. Only those items that could be estimated
with reasonable certainty have been recorded.

      (a) Under US GAAP, refined gold that has not yet been sold must continue
   to be recorded at its historical cost and revenue recognition is not
   allowed. As a result, bullion that was recorded at market prices as a cash
   equivalent was reclassified from CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS to INVENTORIES.
   In addition, the bullion and certain inventory items that were recorded at
   market value were reduced to approximate cost and an adjustment recorded for
   the effect on deferred taxes. No adjustment was recorded to the Unaudited
   Pro Forma Combined Condensed Statements of Operations as the impact on the
   respective periods was not determinable.

      (b) US GAAP requires that exploration costs be expensed as incurred,
   rather than capitalized as allowed under Australian GAAP. As a result, all
   capitalized exploration costs were removed from the balance sheet and an
   adjustment recorded for the effect on deferred taxes. The difference between
   the amounts capitalized at December 31, 2000 and September 30, 2001, and at
   December 31, 2000 and December 31, 1999, respectively, were recorded as
   adjustments to OPERATING COSTS, with an adjustment for the tax effect, in
   the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Statements of Operations.

      (c) US GAAP requires that the fair value of derivative instruments be
   recorded as an asset or liability. Newmont has assumed that the derivative
   instruments owned by Normandy would qualify as cash flow hedges under US
   GAAP, therefore having no measurable impact on the Unaudited Pro Forma
   Combined Condensed Statements of Operations. Newmont recorded an adjustment
   to reflect the fair value of the derivative contracts as of September 30,
   2001, with the corresponding offsetting entry to ACCUMULATED OTHER
   COMPREHENSIVE INCOME, net of tax.

      (d) To reclassify previously recorded Normandy goodwill classified as
   OTHER LONG-TERM ASSETS to GOODWILL on the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined
   Condensed Balance Sheet.

      (e) An adjustment has been recorded to reflect the additional interest
   capitalized on all development and construction projects as part of the cost
   of an asset for the difference between US GAAP and Australian GAAP. An
   adjustment has been recorded to reflect the reduction of INTEREST, NET OF
   AMOUNTS CAPITALIZED in the Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Statements of
   Operations for the periods presented. No adjustment was recorded to the
   Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Balance Sheet for the impact of this item, as
   the impact of this adjustment from the inception of Normandy is not
   determinable.

      (f) To account for the deferred income tax effects of the pro forma
   balance sheet adjustments.

                                      117



      (g) This amount represents the cumulative balancing entry for the effect
   of the balance sheet adjustments.

      (h) To account for the income tax expense relating to the pro forma
   income statement adjustments.

NOTE 3--PRO FORMA ADJUSTMENTS TO RECORD THE ACQUISITION OF: 1) 100% OF NORMANDY
AND 2) 50.1% OF NORMANDY

   The following adjustments have been made to the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined
Condensed Balance Sheet at September 30, 2001 and the Unaudited Pro Forma
Combined Condensed Statements of Operations for the nine month period ended
September 30, 2001 and for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2000,
respectively.

      (a) The purchase consideration has been based on Newmont acquiring two
   different percentages of Normandy common stock: 1) 100% of the Normandy
   shares outstanding plus all options and restricted shares based on an
   exchange ratio of 0.0385 of a Newmont share for each Normandy share; and 2)
   50.1% of the Normandy shares outstanding plus all options and restricted
   shares based on an exchange ratio of 0.0385 of a Newmont share for each
   Normandy share. Additionally, Newmont is paying $A0.40 per share for each
   ordinary share of Normandy tendered, with the exception of the 19.79% of
   ordinary shares of Normandy that are owned by Franco-Nevada, calculated on a
   fully-diluted basis. The Shares will be acquired through Newmont's call
   option on 19.79% of the Normandy Shares held by Franco-Nevada based on
   Franco-Nevada receiving 0.0385 of a share of Newmont for each ordinary share
   of Normandy owned by Franco-Nevada. The final purchase price allocations
   will be determined after closing based on the actual fair value of current
   assets, current liabilities, indebtedness, reclamation and remediation
   liabilities, derivative instruments, marketable securities, a more extensive
   analysis of the fair value of mining and royalty interests acquired and
   identifiable intangible assets and will reflect the number of shares of
   Newmont common stock issued to acquire Normandy's outstanding shares and
   stock options that were outstanding at closing. Newmont is continuing to
   evaluate all of these items; accordingly, the final purchase price may
   differ in material respects from that presented in the Unaudited Pro Forma
   Combined Condensed Balance Sheet. The purchase accounting entries are an
   estimate only and are subject to change.

   The purchase price for accounting purposes has been determined by using the
average price of Newmont's common stock for the two days before and the two
days after the announcement of the terms of the Transaction. Such average price
was US$19.57.

   The cash consideration offered by Newmont for the acquisition of Normandy
will be funded by Newmont drawing on an existing available revolving credit
facility. Interest expense has been recorded as if the borrowings had been
outstanding as of January 1, 2000.

   The entry to record the purchase transaction includes a deferred tax
liability at Newmont's 35% statutory rate, based on the increase in the book
basis of the identifiable tangible and intangible net assets without a
corresponding increase in tax basis, as this transaction has been structured as
a tax-free exchange. No deferred tax liability has been established for the
goodwill which is not deductible for tax purposes.

      (b) The pro forma adjustments for the 100% acquisition of Normandy
   eliminates the retained earnings, reserves or other items in the equity of
   Normandy and records the fair value of common stock consideration issued by
   Newmont. The pro forma adjustments for the 50.1% acquisition of Normandy
   eliminates 50.1% of the retained earnings, reserves and other items of
   equity of Normandy, records the fair value of common stock issued by Newmont
   and records a minority interest on Newmont's Unaudited Pro Forma Combined
   Condensed Balance Sheet for the 49.9% of Normandy's equity that was not
   acquired.

                                      119



   The pro forma combined stockholders' equity of Newmont reflects the

      (c) Adjusts depreciation, depletion and amortization to account for the
   acquisition as if the Transaction had occurred January 1, 2000 in a manner
   consistent with the policies of depreciation, depletion and amortization
   utilized by Newmont. This adjustment results in an increase to depreciation,
   depletion and amortization expense in each of the periods presented. The
   goodwill created in the purchase accounting transaction was not amortized in
   accordance with US GAAP for business combinations that are initiated
   subsequent to July 1, 2001.

      (d) To account for the income tax benefit of the pro forma adjustments
   resulting from the impact of the purchase accounting adjustments using
   Newmont's statutory tax rate of 35%.

      (e) Adjusts the pro forma combined basic and diluted weighted average
   common shares outstanding for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2001
   and the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2000 and assumes that the
   shares issued in the acquisition of Normandy were issued on January 1, 2000.

      (f) Adjustment to reflect the 49.9% minority interest of Normandy that
   Newmont does not acquire in the 50.1% acquisition of Normandy. The minority
   interest excludes the effect of the step-up recorded for purchase accounting
   applied only at the Newmont level for its newly acquired 50.1% interest in
   Normandy.

      (g) To eliminate management fees between Newmont and Normandy.

   As of September 30, 2001, Normandy owned approximately 62.5% of Australian
Magnesium Corporation Limited ("AMC"). In November 2001, AMC completed an
equity offering, whereby, Normandy's ownership interest decreased to an
estimated 23% equity ownership. The September 30, 2001 balance sheet and the
nine month information of Normandy fully consolidate Normandy's interest in AMC
with a minority interest. No pro forma adjustments have been recorded to
de-consolidate this investment for the periods presented. Newmont is currently
unable to determine within a reasonable degree of accuracy the impact of
de-consolidating AMC in these Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Financial
Statements.

NOTE 4--US GAAP ADJUSTMENTS TO FRANCO-NEVADA

   The following notes describe the basis and assumptions used to adjust the
Franco-Nevada Canadian GAAP financial statements to approximate US GAAP. In
addition, some balance sheet items have been combined to conform to the
presentation of Newmont. Canadian GAAP varies in certain significant respects
from the principles and practices of US GAAP. The effect of these principle
measurement differences on Franco-Nevada's consolidated financial statements
are quantified and described below.

      (a) In April 2001, Franco-Nevada acquired 19.99% (currently 19.79%,
   calculated on a fully-diluted basis) of Normandy's outstanding common stock.
   For Canadian GAAP purposes Franco-Nevada has accounted for their investment
   on an equity basis using the best information available from Normandy in the
   public domain. As Normandy has declined to provide a reconciliation of its
   results of operations in US GAAP for the period owned by Franco-Nevada,
   there is no basis for recording an adjustment to US GAAP. Whereas, this
   equity investment adjustment has been omitted from the Franco-Nevada US GAAP
   reconciliation, the purchase accounting adjustments described in Note 5(e)
   to record the merger with Franco-Nevada would have eliminated the accounting
   for this equity investment because the Unaudited Pro Forma Financial
   Statements have already consolidated 100% of Normandy and therefore, no
   equity accounting for this investment is required for any period presented
   for the combined company.

      (b) US GAAP requires that marketable securities classified as available
   for sale be recorded at fair value with a corresponding entry to ACCUMULATED
   OTHER COMPREHENSIVE INCOME, net of deferred tax. As of September 30, 2001 an
   increase to MARKETABLE SECURITIES was recorded in the Unaudited Pro Forma
   Balance Sheet.

      (c) US GAAP requires that exploration costs be expensed as incurred
   rather than capitalized, as allowed under Canadian GAAP. As a result
   PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT, NET was reduced to remove costs previously
   capitalized. In the nine-month period ended September 30, 2001 and
   twelve-month period ended March 31, 2001, increases in exploration expense
   were recorded to OPERATING COSTS. Additionally, in both the nine month
   period ended September 30, 2001 and the twelve month period ended March 31,
   2001, OPERATING COSTS were reduced to reflect the reversal of
   Franco-Nevada's provision for impairment under Canadian GAAP of these
   capitalized exploration costs because such costs would already have been
   expensed under US GAAP.

      (d) Canadian GAAP requires that merger costs incurred in a pooling
   transaction be considered as capital costs and therefore netted against
   capital stock, rather than expensed as required under US GAAP. As a result,
   amounts previously expensed were restored to CAPITAL STOCK, with a decrease
   to RETAINED EARNINGS in the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Balance
   Sheet as of September 30, 2001.

      (e) Effect on DEPRECIATION, DEPLETION AND AMORTIZATION for the impact of
   adjustments to the net carrying amount of assets adjusted above.

                                      121



      (f) These adjustments record the net deferred income tax effect of the US
   GAAP adjustments to the balance sheet.

      (g) An adjustment to ACCUMULATED OTHER COMPREHENSIVE INCOME was recorded
   to account for differences in the application of US GAAP and Canadian GAAP
   for the effect of currency translation.

      (h) Relates to the reversals of loss and provision amounts recorded on
   marketable securities under Canadian GAAP, which would have been recorded in
   earlier periods under US GAAP.

      (i) This amount represents the cumulative retained earnings adjustments.

      (j) To account for the income tax expense related to the pro forma income
   statement adjustments.

NOTE 5--PRO FORMA ADJUSTMENTS TO RECORD THE ACQUISITION OF 100% OF FRANCO-NEVADA

   The Franco-Nevada acquisition is conditional upon the acquisition of 50.1%
of Normandy. The following adjustments have been made to the Unaudited Pro
Forma Combined Condensed Balance Sheet as of September 30, 2001 and the
Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Statement of Operations for the nine
month period ended September 30, 2001 and for the twelve month period ended
December 31, 2001, respectively.

      (a) The purchase consideration is based on Newmont acquiring 100% of the
   Franco-Nevada outstanding shares plus all options and warrants based on an
   exchange ratio of 0.8 of a Newmont share for each Franco-Nevada share. The
   final purchase price allocation will be determined shortly after closing
   based on the actual fair value of current assets, current liabilities,
   marketable securities, a more extensive analysis of the fair value of
   royalty interests acquired and identifiable intangible assets and will
   reflect the number of shares of Newmont common stock issued to acquire
   Franco-Nevada's outstanding shares, stock options and warrants that were
   outstanding at closing. Newmont is continuing to evaluate all of these
   items; accordingly, the final purchase price may differ in material respects
   from that presented in the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Balance
   Sheet. The purchase accounting entries are an estimate only and are subject
   to change.

   The following table reflects the estimated purchase accounting allocation
   for the acquisition of 100% of Franco-Nevada:



                                                                                     (IN MILLIONS OF US $'S

                                      122



   The purchase price for accounting purposes has been determined by using the
   average price of Newmont's common stock for the two days before and the two
   days after the announcement of the terms of the Transaction. Such average
   price was US$19.57.

   The debt adjustment recorded in the Normandy acquisition is reversed in the
   Franco-Nevada acquisition as the cash acquired in the Franco-Nevada
   acquisition would be used to repay this debt or to eliminate Newmont's need
   to draw on its line of credit. The interest expense recorded in the Normandy
   purchase accounting adjustments has been reversed in the Franco-Nevada
   purchase accounting adjustments.

   The entry to record the purchase transaction provides a deferred tax
   liability at Newmont's 35% statutory rate based on the increase in the book
   basis of the identifiable tangible and intangible net assets without a
   corresponding increase in tax basis as this transaction has been structured
   as a tax-free exchange. No deferred tax liability has been established for
   the goodwill which is not deductible for tax purposes.

      (b) These pro forma adjustments reflect the acquisition of 100% of
   Franco-Nevada as well as eliminates the retained earnings, reserves or other
   items in the equity of Franco-Nevada and records the fair value of common
   stock consideration issued by Newmont. Newmont will issue approximately
   109.96 million shares of its common stock to accomplish the acquisition, or
   0.8 of a share for each Franco-Nevada share outstanding. This number of
   shares is net of Franco-Nevada's 19.99% (currently 19.79%, calculated on a
   fully-diluted basis) interest in Normandy. The pro forma combined
   stockholders' equity of Newmont following the acquisition of 1) 100% of
   Normandy and the merger of 100% of Franco-Nevada and 2) 50.1% of Normandy
   and the merger of 100% of Franco-Nevada reflects the following:

      (c) Adjusts depreciation, depletion and amortization to account for the
   merger as if the Transactions had occurred January 1, 2000 in a manner
   consistent with the policies of depreciation, depletion and amortization
   utilized by Newmont. This adjustment results in an increase to depreciation,
   depletion and amortization expense in each of the periods presented. The
   goodwill created in the purchase accounting transaction was not amortized in
   accordance with US GAAP for business combinations that are initiated
   subsequent to July 1, 2001.

      (d) To account for the income tax expense of the pro forma adjustments
   resulting from the impact of the purchase accounting adjustments using
   Newmont's expected effective statutory tax rate of 35%.

                                      123



      (e) Eliminates the 19.99% investment (currently 19.79% calculated on a
   fully-diluted basis) held by Franco-Nevada in Normandy on Franco-Nevada's
   Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet and the
   effect of the equity accounting recorded in the Unaudited Pro Forma Combined
   Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations of Franco-Nevada for the
   period Franco-Nevada owned the investment in 2001. This adjustment
   eliminates the Canadian GAAP effect only as no adjustment has been made to
   reflect the accounting for this investment in accordance with US GAAP (See
   Note 4(a)). Eliminating the 19.99% investment held by Franco-Nevada in
   Normandy ensures the consolidated results of the combined company include
   the consolidated results of Newmont, Normandy and Franco-Nevada, excluding a
   duplication of the equity accounting impact of the investment held by
   Franco-Nevada in Normandy.

      (f) To eliminate royalties paid by Newmont and Normandy to Franco-Nevada
   on certain mining properties.

NOTE 6--COST SAVINGS AND EXPENSES OF THE MERGER

   Expected annual cost savings have not been reflected as an adjustment to the
historical data because it is prospective information pertaining to what may
happen once the three companies are combined.

   These savings have been estimated by Newmont and are expected to range from
US$70 to US$80 million after tax during the first full year of combined
operations. Approximately US$40 to US$45 million relate to synergies between
Newmont and Normandy and approximately US$30 to US$35 million relate to
synergies between Newmont and Franco-Nevada. See "The Transactions--Reasons for
the Transactions."

   Estimated costs of the Transactions total approximately US$60 million for
Normandy and US$30 million for Franco-Nevada, consisting primarily of
approximately US$25 million of severance and separation pay for terminated
Normandy and Franco-Nevada employees, approximately US$65 million of investment
banker, legal, accounting and other professional advisor fees and fees related
directly to the acquisition and merger. These costs will be capitalized as
direct costs associated with the Transactions.

                       COMPARISON OF STOCKHOLDER RIGHTS

COMMON STOCK

   If the merger is completed, your rights as a holder of Holdco common
stock--including voting and dividend rights--will be substantially similar to
your current rights as a holder of Newmont common stock. Both Newmont and
Holdco are incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware. Your rights as
a holder of Holdco common stock will be governed by Delaware law and the
certificate of incorporation and by-laws of Holdco. The material differences
between the certificate of incorporation and by-laws of Holdco and our restated
certificate of incorporation and by-laws are as follows:

  .  Holdco is authorized to issue 750,000,000 shares of common stock, par
     value $1.60, in contrast with the 250,000,000 shares of common stock, par
     value $1.60, that are currently authorized by our restated certificate of
     incorporation;

  .  Holdco's certificate of incorporation and by-laws have been amended, in
     general to reflect modifications of Delaware law (as to a corporation's
     general purpose, indemnification of directors and officers, the absence of
     preemptive rights unless the certificate of incorporation states otherwise
     and the source of permissible expenditures for the corporation) since our
     constitutive documents were created or amended;

  .  Holdco's certificate of incorporation provides for the indemnification of
     directors and officers to the fullest extent provided by Delaware law,
     without qualification by its by-laws.

  .  Holdco's certificate of incorporation clarifies the board of directors'
     authority to make, alter, amend or repeal by-laws, subject to alteration
     or repeal by the stockholders at any annual meeting or at a special
     meeting where notice has been provided of the proposed alteration or
     repeal; and

  .  Holdco's by-laws provide for a maximum of seventeen directors, as opposed
     to a maximum of fifteen directors under our by-laws.

   The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the
certificate of incorporation and by-laws of Holdco which are attached to this
proxy statement/prospectus as Appendix F and G, respectively.

$3.25 CONVERTIBLE PREFERRED STOCK

   If we complete the merger, pursuant to the merger agreement, we have the
option to:

  .  leave outstanding the Newmont $3.25 convertible preferred stock, in which
     case the Newmont $3.25 convertible preferred stock will be convertible,
     pursuant to its terms, into shares of Holdco common stock; or

  .  exchange the outstanding shares of Newmont $3.25 convertible preferred
     stock for shares of Holdco $3.25 convertible preferred stock having the
     same preferences and rights with respect to Holdco, as the Newmont $3.25
     convertible preferred has with respect to Newmont as of the date of the
     merger agreement.

   Under either of the above options, the holders of the convertible preferred
stock (of either Holdco or the surviving corporation) will be entitled to vote
along with the holders of common stock on all matters relating to Newmont (if
we choose to leave outstanding the Newmont $3.25 convertible preferred stock)
or Holdco (if we effect the exchange for Holdco convertible preferred stock).
In either case, the aggregate voting power of the Holdco convertible preferred
stock, as a class, or the Newmont convertible preferred stock, as a class, will
be commensurate with the proportionate economic interest in Newmont of holders
of Newmont convertible preferred stock, as a class, immediately prior to the
completion of the merger.

   In general, absent dividend arrearages, the Newmont $3.25 convertible
preferred stock does not currently have voting rights and will not obtain
further voting rights if we do not complete the merger.

                                      126



RIGHTS AGREEMENT

   As of the date that the merger is completed, Holdco anticipates that it will
have entered into a rights agreement substantially similar to the Rights
Agreement that is currently in place between Newmont and ChaseMellon
Shareholder Services LLC.

   In general terms, the current rights agreement works by imposing a
significant penalty upon any person or group that acquires 15% or more of the
outstanding shares of Newmont common stock without the approval of the Newmont
board of directors.

   Each outstanding share of Newmont common stock has attached to it a
preferred share purchase right. In general, the rights do not become
exercisable until 10 days after the public announcement that a person or group
has become an "acquiring person" by obtaining beneficial ownership of 15% or
more of the outstanding shares of Newmont common stock or 10 days (or a later
date as determined by the Newmont board of directors) after a person or group
commences a tender or exchange offer that would, if completed, result in that
person becoming an acquiring person. We refer to the date when the rights
become exercisable as the "distribution date." The Newmont board of directors
may amend the terms of the rights agreement to lower the threshold at which a
person or group becomes an acquiring person to as low as 10%.

   If a person or group becomes an acquiring person, all holders of rights,
except the acquiring person, may, for $100, purchase shares of Newmont common
stock with a market value of $200. If Newmont is later acquired in a merger or
similar transaction after the distribution date, all holders of rights, except
the acquiring person, may, for $100, purchase shares of the acquiring
corporation with a market value of $200. After a person or group becomes an
acquiring person, but before that acquiring person holds 50% or more of the
Newmont common stock, the Newmont board of directors may extinguish the rights
by exchanging one share of Newmont common stock or an equivalent security for
each right, other than rights held by the acquiring person.

   The stockholder rights will cause substantial dilution to a person or group
that attempts to acquire Newmont on terms not approved by the Newmont board of
directors, except by means of an offer conditioned on a substantial number of
rights being acquired. However, the rights should not interfere with any merger
or other business combination approved by the Newmont board of directors,
because, at any time prior to a person or group becoming an acquiring person,
the rights may be redeemed by Newmont for $0.001 per right or the rights
agreement may be amended so as not to apply to a transaction approved by the
board of directors.

   The foregoing description of the rights is qualified in its entirety by the
rights agreement that is attached as an exhibit to Newmont's registration
statement on Form 8-A, dated September 6, 2000, which is incorporated by
reference in this proxy statement/prospectus. See "Where You Can Find More
Information" on page 131 for information on how to obtain this document.

           APPRAISAL RIGHTS OF DISSENTING STOCKHOLDERS IN THE MERGER

   Newmont stockholders will not be entitled to appraisal rights under the DGCL
or any other applicable law in connection with the merger.

                    [FORM OF] AGREEMENT AND PLAN OF MERGER

   AGREEMENT AND PLAN OF MERGER, dated as of [   ] [ ], 2002 (the "AGREEMENT"),
by and among Newmont Mining Corporation, a Delaware corporation ("NEWMONT"),
Delta Holdco Corp., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of
Newmont ("HOLDCO"), and Delta Acquisitionco Corp., a Delaware corporation and a
wholly owned subsidiary of Holdco ("ACQUISITIONCO").

                                  WITNESSETH:

   WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of Newmont (the "BOARD") has determined that
it is advisable and in the best interests of Newmont and its stockholders for
Newmont to effect a restructuring through the merger of Acquisitionco with and
into Newmont, with Newmont as the surviving corporation (the "MERGER"), upon
the terms and subject to the condition set forth in this Agreement, whereby (1)
each issued and outstanding share of common stock, par value $1.60 per share,
of Newmont ("NEWMONT COMMON STOCK") will be converted into one share of common
stock, par value $1.60 per share, of Holdco ("HOLDCO COMMON STOCK"), and (2)
unless the Board resolves otherwise pursuant to Section 2.1(b) hereof, each
issued and outstanding share of $3.25 Convertible Preferred Stock, par value
$5.00 per share, of Newmont ("NEWMONT CONVERTIBLE PREFERRED STOCK") will be
converted into one share of $3.25 Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $5.00
per share, of Holdco ("HOLDCO CONVERTIBLE PREFERRED STOCK");

   WHEREAS, upon consummation of the Merger, Newmont will become a wholly owned
subsidiary of Holdco, which has been formed by Newmont for the purpose of
effecting the Merger and Holdco will change its name to "Newmont Mining
Corporation;"

   WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of Acquisitionco has determined that the
Merger is advisable and in the best interests of Acquisitionco and Holdco as
its sole stockholder; and

   WHEREAS, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, it is intended that the
Merger will qualify as a reorganization within the meaning of Section 368 of
the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), and that the
Merger, taken together with the share exchange contemplated by the Arrangement
Agreement, dated as of November 14, 2001, by and between Newmont and
Franco-Nevada Mining Corporation Limited, and the off-market bid by Newmont for
the ordinary shares in the capital of Normandy Mining Limited, shall qualify as
an exchange described in Section 351 of the Code.

   NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises herein contained and
intending to be legally bound, the parties hereto agree as follows:

1. MERGER

   1.1 THE MERGER. Upon the terms and subject to the condition set forth in
this agreement, and in accordance with the Delaware General Corporation Law
(the "DGCL"), Acquisitionco shall be merged with and into Newmont at the
Effective Time. Following the Merger, the separate corporate existence of
Acquisitionco shall cease and Newmont shall continue as the surviving
corporation.

   1.2 CLOSING. The closing of the Merger (the "CLOSING") will take place on a
date that is mutually acceptable to the parties hereto after satisfaction of
the condition set forth in Article 3 (the actual time and date of the Closing
being referred to herein as the "CLOSING DATE"). The Closing shall be held at
the offices of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, 51 West 52nd Street, New York,
NY 10019, unless another place is agreed to by the parties hereto.

   1.3 EFFECTIVE TIME. As soon as practicable following the satisfaction of the
condition set forth in Article 3, at the Closing the parties shall (i) file a
certificate of merger (the "CERTIFICATE OF MERGER") in such form as is required
by and executed in accordance with the relevant provisions of the DGCL and (ii)
make all other filings or recordings required under the DGCL. The Merger shall
become effective at such time as the Certificate of Merger is duly filed with
the Delaware Secretary of State or at such subsequent time as the parties
hereto shall

                                      A-1



agree and as shall be specified in the Certificate of Merger (the date and time
the Merger becomes effective being the "EFFECTIVE TIME").

   1.4 EFFECTS OF THE MERGER.

      a. GENERALLY. At and after the Effective Time, the Merger shall have the
   effects set forth in the DGCL and other applicable law. Without limiting the
   generality of the foregoing, and subject thereto, at the Effective Time, all
   the property, rights, privileges, powers and franchises of Newmont and
   Acquisitionco shall be vested in the Surviving Corporation, and all debts,
   liabilities and duties of Newmont and Acquisitionco shall become the debts,
   liabilities and duties of the Surviving Corporation.

      b. CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION AND BY-LAWS. The Restated Certificate of
   Incorporation of Newmont as the Surviving Corporation shall be amended in
   the merger to read as set forth in Exhibit A. The by-laws of Acquisitionco
   as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be the by-laws of
   the Surviving Corporation, until thereafter changed or amended as provided
   therein or by applicable law.

      c. OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS. The officers of Acquisitionco as of the
   Effective Time shall be the officers of the Surviving Corporation, until the
   earlier of their resignation or removal or otherwise ceasing to be an
   officer or until their respective successors are duly appointed and
   qualified. The directors of Acquisitionco as of the Effective Time shall
   become the directors of the Surviving Corporation, which individuals will
   serve as directors of the Surviving Corporation until the earlier of their
   resignation or removal or otherwise ceasing to be a director or until their
   respective successors are duly elected and qualified.

      d. Upon completion of the merger, Holdco shall change its name to
   "Newmont Mining Corporation."

2. CONVERSION OF STOCK

   2.1 EFFECT ON CAPITAL STOCK.

      a. At the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action
   on the part of the holder thereof, each share of Newmont Common Stock issued
   and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be converted
   into one share of Holdco Common Stock.

      b. At the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action
   on the part of the holder thereof, each share of Newmont Convertible
   Preferred Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective
   Time shall be converted into one share of Holdco Convertible Preferred
   Stock; provided, however, that if at any time prior to the Effective Time,
   the Board adopts a resolution so providing, the shares of Newmont
   Convertible Preferred Stock shall not be converted into shares of Holdco
   Convertible Preferred Stock but shall remain outstanding as shares of
   Newmont Convertible Preferred Stock (in such event, such shares prior, at
   and after the Effective Time hereinafter referred to as the "Remaining
   Convertible Preferred Stock"). Any holder of Newmont Convertible Preferred
   Stock shall have the right to receive a copy of such resolution. Prior to
   the Effective Time, the Board shall take all necessary action to provide
   that Holdco Convertible Preferred Stock or, if such resolution is adopted,
   Remaining Convertible Preferred Stock, as the case may be, shall have,
   MUTATIS MUTANDIS, exactly the same voting powers, preferences and relative,
   participating, optional or other special rights, if any, and exactly the
   same qualifications, limitations or restrictions as the Newmont Convertible
   Preferred Stock outstanding as of the date hereof; except that, in either
   case, the respective certificates of designation shall provide that the
   holders of Holdco Convertible Preferred Stock or, if such resolution is
   adopted, of the Remaining Convertible Preferred Stock, as the case may be,
   shall be entitled (in the case of the Remaining Convertible Preferred Stock,
   immediately prior to the Effective Time (or such earlier time as is
   determined by the Board prior to the Effective Time) and at all times
   thereafter) to vote together as a single class with the holders of common
   stock on all matters submitted to the stockholders of Holdco or Newmont, as
   the case may be. In either the aggregate voting power of the Holdco
   Convertible Preferred Stock, as a class, or, if such a resolution is
   adopted, the Remaining Convertible Preferred Stock, as a class, shall be
   commensurate with the proportionate economic interest in Newmont held by the
   holders of Newmont Convertible Preferred Stock, as a class, immediately
   prior to the Effective Time (or such earlier time as is determined by the
   Board prior to the Effective Time).

                                      A-2



      c. Each share of Holdco Common Stock issued and held by Newmont at the
   Effective Time shall cease to be outstanding and shall be cancelled and
   retired and no consideration shall be delivered in exchange therefor.

      d. Each share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of
   Acquisitionco ("ACQUISITIONCO COMMON STOCK") issued and outstanding
   immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be converted into one share of
   common stock of the Surviving Corporation as of the Effective Time.

      e. At the Effective Time: (A) each certificate theretofore representing
   shares of Newmont Common Stock shall, without any action on the part of
   Newmont, Holdco or the holder thereof, represent, and shall be deemed to
   represent from and after the Effective Time, the number of shares of Holdco
   Common Stock as determined in accordance with Section 2.1(a) and shall cease
   to represent any rights in any shares of capital stock of Newmont; (B) each
   holder of a certificate which, prior to the Effective Time, represented
   shares of Newmont Common Stock shall cease to have any rights with respect
   to any shares of Newmont Common Stock and (C) former holders of Newmont
   Common Stock shall, from and after the Effective Time, be deemed to be
   holders of the shares of Holdco Common Stock into which such shares of
   Newmont Common Stock have been converted pursuant to Section 2.1 hereof.

      f. At the Effective Time, unless the Board resolves pursuant to Section
   2.1(b) hereof that the shares of Newmont Convertible Preferred Stock shall
   not be converted into shares of Holdco Convertible Preferred Stock but shall
   remain outstanding as shares of Convertible Preferred Stock of the Surviving
   Corporation: (A) each certificate theretofore representing shares of Newmont
   Convertible Preferred Stock shall, without any action on the part of
   Newmont, Holdco or the holder thereof, represent, and shall be deemed to
   represent from and after the Effective Time, the number of shares of Holdco
   Convertible Preferred Stock as determined in accordance with Section 2.1(b)
   and shall cease to represent any rights in any shares of capital stock of
   Newmont; (B) each holder of a certificate which, prior to the Effective
   Time, represented shares of Newmont Convertible Preferred Stock shall cease
   to have any rights with respect to any shares of Newmont Convertible
   Preferred Stock and (C) such former holders of Newmont Convertible Preferred
   Stock shall, from and after the Effective Time, be deemed to be holders of
   the shares of Holdco Convertible Preferred Stock into which such shares of
   Newmont Convertible Preferred Stock have been converted pursuant to Section
   2.1 hereof.

   2.2 TREATMENT OF OPTIONS AND OTHER STOCK COMPENSATION

      a. OPTIONS TO PURCHASE COMMON STOCK. At the Effective Time, each option
   to purchase or deferred stock award with respect to a number of shares of
   Newmont Common Stock (a "NEWMONT STOCK OPTION" or "NEWMONT DEFERRED STOCK
   AWARD," as the case may be) that is then outstanding and unexercised shall
   cease to represent a right with respect to shares of Newmont Common Stock
   and shall be converted automatically into an option to purchase or a
   deferred stock award with respect to the same number of shares of Holdco
   Common Stock (a "HOLDCO STOCK OPTION" or "HOLDCO DEFERRED STOCK AWARD," as
   the case may be), and Holdco shall assume each such Holdco Stock Option and
   Holdco Deferred Stock Award, subject to the terms of the plan and agreement
   under which each such Newmont Stock Option or Newco Deferred Stock Award was
   issued. Effective as of the Effective Time, Holdco shall assume each plan,
   program or arrangement pursuant to which Newmont grants options, equity or
   equity-based awards to its employees (the "EQUITY PLANS") and may modify the
   Equity Plans to provide that awards with respect to shares of Holdco Common
   Stock may be granted by Holdco pursuant to the terms thereof.

3. CONDITION.

   The obligations of the parties hereto to consummate the Merger and the other
transactions contemplated hereby are conditioned upon the adoption of Newmont's
stockholders of this Agreement by the requisite vote of the holders of Newmont
Common Stock (the "NEWMONT STOCKHOLDER APPROVAL").

                                      A-3



4. TERMINATION OF AGREEMENT.

   This Agreement may be terminated before the Effective Time for any reason by
any of the parties hereto, notwithstanding the adoption thereof by the
stockholders of Newmont, by written notice to the non-terminating parties. Upon
the giving of such notice, this Agreement shall be terminated and there shall
be no liability hereunder or on account of such termination on the part of
Newmont, Acquisitionco, Holdco or the directors, officers, employees, agents or
stockholders of any of them.

5. MISCELLANEOUS

   5.1 GOVERNING LAW. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in
accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to the
conflicts of laws or principles thereof.

   5.2 AMENDMENT. This Agreement may be amended by the parties hereto, by
action taken or authorized by their respective Boards of Directors, at any time
before or after the Newmont Stockholder Approval, but, after any such approval,
no amendment shall be made which by law or in accordance with the rules of any
relevant stock exchange requires further approval by such stockholders without
such further approval. This Agreement may not be amended except by an
instrument in writing signed on behalf of each of the parties hereto.

   IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Agreement to be
signed by their respective officers thereunto duly authorized, all as of the

Subject to the provisions of the Plan of Arrangement, Acquisitionco agrees to

equivalent provincial legislation in respect of the acquisition of
Franco-Nevada Shares or Holdco Shares by Acquisitionco. In addition, each of
Franco-Nevada and Newmont shall (and shall cause its Subsidiaries to) use all
efforts to satisfy each of the conditions precedent to be satisfied by it, as
soon as practical and in any event before the Effective Date, and to take, or
cause to be taken, all other action and to do, or cause to be done, all other
things necessary, proper or advisable to permit the completion of the
Transactions in accordance with the Arrangement, this agreement, the agreements
that it contemplates and applicable Law, and to cooperate with each other in
connection therewith (provided, however, that, with respect to Canadian
provincial or territorial qualifications, neither Newmont nor New Newmont shall
be required to register or qualify as a foreign corporation or to take any
action that would subject it to service of process in any

                                      B-4



jurisdiction where it is not now so subject, except as to matters and
transactions arising solely from the issuance of the Exchangeable Shares and
the Newmont Shares), including using all efforts to:

      (a) provide notice to, and obtain all waivers, consents, permits,
   licenses, authorizations, orders, approvals and releases necessary or
   desirable to complete the Transactions from, Agencies and other persons,
   including parties to agreements, understandings or other documents to which
   each of Franco-Nevada and Newmont (and its respective Subsidiaries) is a
   party or by which it or its properties is bound or affected (including loan
   agreements, shareholder agreements, leases, pledges, guarantees and
   security), the failure of which to provide or obtain would prevent the
   completion of the Arrangement or which, individually or in the aggregate,
   could reasonably be expected to be Materially Adverse to either
   Franco-Nevada or Newmont and their respective Subsidiaries, in each case
   taken as a whole;

      (b) obtain the Interim Order and the approval of Franco-Nevada
   Shareholders at the Franco-Nevada Special Meeting at the earliest
   practicable date, as specified in the Interim Order and the Final Order;

      (c) effect or cause to be effected all registrations and filings and
   submissions of information necessary or desirable to complete the
   Transactions or requested of it by Agencies, the failure of which to obtain
   could reasonably be expected to prevent the completion of the Transactions
   or could reasonably be expected to be Materially Adverse to either
   Franco-Nevada or Newmont and their respective Subsidiaries, in each case
   taken as a whole; and

      (d) keep the other reasonably informed as to the status of the
   proceedings related to obtaining the Regulatory Approvals, including
   providing the other with copies of all related applications and
   notifications.

B. OPTIONS.

   (a) Franco-Nevada shall take all necessary actions and do all things
necessary to ensure that, in accordance with the terms of the Franco-Nevada
Options, each holder of a Franco-Nevada Option shall be entitled to receive
after the Effective Time upon the subsequent exercise of such holder's
Franco-Nevada Option, in accordance with its terms, and shall accept in lieu of
the number of Franco-Nevada Shares to which such holder was theretofore
entitled upon such exercise but for the same aggregate consideration payable
therefor, the aggregate number of Newmont Shares that such holder would have
been entitled to receive as a result of the Transactions if, on the Effective
Date, such holder had been the registered holder of the number of Franco-Nevada
Shares to which such holder was theretofore entitled upon such exercise. For
example, a holder of ten Franco-Nevada Class A Warrants would be entitled to
receive new warrants bearing the same terms and conditions, except that such
warrants would be exercisable for 32 (i.e., 10 x 4 x 0.80) Newmont Shares for a
total exercise price of $200.

   (b) As soon as practicable following the Effective Date, but it no event
later than 20 days after the Effective Date, Newmont shall, to the extent
required, file with the SEC a registration statement on Form S-8 (or other
appropriate form) under the Securities Act with respect to the Newmont Shares
issued pursuant to Section 4.B(a) with respect to Franco-Nevada Options.
Newmont shall take all necessary action to ensure that a sufficient number of
Newmont Shares are reserved for issuance upon the exercise of Franco-Nevada
Options as contemplated by Section 4.B(a). In addition, Newmont shall take all
necessary action to cause Newmont equity securities issued in connection with
the Arrangement to the holders of Franco-Nevada Options who become executive
officers or directors of Newmont to be exempt from Section 16(b) of the
Securities Exchange Act pursuant to Rule 16b-3 promulgated thereunder.

C. DEFENCE OF PROCEEDINGS.

   Each of Franco-Nevada and Newmont shall vigorously defend, or shall cause to
be vigorously defended, any lawsuits or other legal proceeding brought against
it or any of its Subsidiaries or their respective directors, officers or
shareholders challenging this agreement or the completion of the Transactions.
Neither Franco-Nevada nor Newmont shall settle or compromise (or permit any of
their respective Subsidiaries to compromise or settle) any claim brought in
connection with the Transactions, without the prior written consent of the
other.

                                      B-5



D. WAIVER OF SHAREHOLDER RIGHTS PLAN.

   Franco-Nevada hereby confirms, acknowledges and agrees that the board of
directors of Franco-Nevada has approved the Transactions and has, acting in
good faith, determined it to be necessary and desirable to extend the
Separation Time (as defined therein) under the Franco-Nevada Rights Agreement
until after the vote by the Franco-Nevada Shareholders on the Arrangement at
the Franco-Nevada Special Meeting and to obtain the consent of Franco-Nevada
Shareholders to waive the Franco-Nevada Rights Agreement so that neither the
entering into nor delivery of this agreement, the Arrangement or the other
agreements contemplated hereby nor the consummation of all or any part of the
Transactions shall constitute a Flip-in Event (as defined in the Franco-Nevada
Rights Agreement), and Franco-Nevada has done all such acts and executed and
delivered all such documents and instruments that are required in order to
extend the Separation Time, including providing the Rights Agent (as defined in
the Franco-Nevada Rights Agreement) with notice in writing of such extension.

E. SECURITIES LAW COMPLIANCE AND RELATED COVENANTS.

   Newmont shall use its best efforts (which, for greater certainty, shall not
require Newmont to consent to a term or condition of an approval or consent
which Newmont reasonably determines could have a Materially Adverse effect on
Newmont or its Subsidiaries):

      (a) to obtain all orders required from the applicable Canadian securities
   regulatory Agencies to permit the first resale of:

          (i) the Exchangeable Shares issued pursuant to the Arrangement; and

          (ii) the Newmont Shares issued from time to time upon exchange of the
       Exchangeable Shares,

   in each case without qualification with or approval of or the filing of any
   prospectus, or the taking of any proceeding with, or the obtaining of any
   further order, ruling or consent from, any securities regulatory Agency in
   any of the provinces of Canada (other than, with respect to such first
   resales, any restrictions on transfer by reason of, among other things, a
   holder being a "control person" of Newmont or Acquisitionco or Callco (as
   defined in the provisions attaching to the Exchangeable Shares) for purposes
   of Canadian federal, provincial or territorial securities Laws or equivalent
   Laws of the United States or any of its states);

      (b) to cause the Exchangeable Shares to be listed and posted for trading
   on the TSE by the Effective Time and to take reasonable steps to maintain
   such listings for so long as there are Exchangeable Shares outstanding
   (other than those securities held by Newmont or any of its affiliates);

      (c) take reasonable steps to ensure that Acquisitionco has, at the
   Effective Time and for so long as there are Exchangeable Shares outstanding
   (other than those Exchangeable Shares held by Newmont or any of its
   affiliates), a "substantial Canadian presence" within the meaning of
   subsection 206(1.1) of the ITA;

      (d) take reasonable steps to cause the listing and admission to trading
   on NYSE of the Newmont Shares to be issued at the Effective Time and from
   time to time (i) upon exchange of the Exchangeable Shares, and (ii) upon the
   exercise of the Franco-Nevada Options; and

      (e) take reasonable steps to ensure that Acquisitionco is, at the
   Effective Time and for so long as there are Exchangeable Shares outstanding
   (other than those Exchangeable Shares held by Newmont or any of its
   affiliates), a "taxable Canadian corporation" and not a "mutual fund
   corporation," each within the meaning of the ITA.

F. REGISTRAR AND TRANSFER AGENT.

   Franco-Nevada shall permit the registrar and transfer agent for
Franco-Nevada Shares and Franco-Nevada Warrants to act as depositary in
connection with the Arrangement and instruct that transfer agent to furnish to
Newmont (and such persons as it may designate) at such times as it may request
such information and provide to Newmont (and such persons as it may designate)
such other assistance as it may request in connection with the implementation
and completion of the Transactions.

                                      B-6



G. ACCESS TO INFORMATION; CONFIDENTIALITY.

      (a) Franco-Nevada shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries to, afford to
   Newmont and to its Representatives, reasonable access during normal business
   hours during the period prior to the Effective Time to all of the
   properties, books, contracts, commitments, personnel and records of
   Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries and, during such period, Franco-Nevada
   shall, and shall cause each of its Subsidiaries to, furnish promptly to
   Newmont (i) a copy of each report, schedule, registration statement and
   other document filed by it during such period pursuant to the requirements
   of federal, provincial or state securities Laws and (ii) all other
   information concerning its business, properties and personnel as Newmont may
   reasonably request, including any information with respect to shareholder
   approval at the Franco-Nevada Special Meeting and the status of the efforts
   to obtain such approval. Such information shall be held in confidence to the
   extent required by, and in accordance with, the provisions of the
   Confidentiality Agreement.

      (b) During the period prior to the Effective Time of the Arrangement,
   Newmont shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries to, furnish promptly to
   Franco-Nevada information concerning its business and properties as
   Franco-Nevada may reasonably request. Such information shall be held in
   confidence to the extent required by, and in accordance with, the provisions
   of the Confidentiality Agreement.

H. DUTY TO INFORM.

   Each of Franco-Nevada and Newmont shall keep the other apprised of the
status of matters relating to the completion of the Transactions and work
cooperatively in connection with obtaining the requisite approvals and consents
or governmental orders, including:

      (a) promptly notifying the other of, and if in writing promptly
   furnishing the other with copies of, any communications from or with any
   Agency with respect to the Transactions;

      (b) permitting the other party to review in advance, and considering in
   good faith the view of one another in connection with, any proposed
   communication with any Agency in connection with proceedings under or
   relating to any applicable Law; and

      (c) not agreeing to participate in any meeting or discussion with any
   Agency in connection with proceedings under or relating to any applicable
   Law unless it consults with the other party in advance, and, to the extent
   permitted by such Agency, give the other party the opportunity to attend and
   participate.

                                      B-7

145 under the Securities Act, to execute and deliver to Newmont no less than 30

sentence. The foregoing notwithstanding, Newmont shall be entitled to place

or (ii) any person Newmont reasonably identifies (by written notice to
Franco-Nevada) as being a person who may be deemed an "affiliate" for purposes
of Rule 145 under the Securities Act, pursuant to the terms of this agreement,
and to issue appropriate stop transfer instructions to the transfer agent for
the Newmont Shares and, to the extent applicable, Exchangeable Shares,

   is, or in the aggregate are, or could reasonably be expected to be,
   Materially Adverse to Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole;
   and

      (f) not enter into or modify any contract, agreement, commitment or
   arrangement with respect to any of the matters set forth in this (S)5.A.

B. CONDUCT OF BUSINESS BY NEWMONT.

   (a) Prior to the Effective Time, unless Franco-Nevada otherwise agrees in
writing or as otherwise expressly contemplated or permitted by this agreement,
Newmont shall, and shall cause each of its Subsidiaries to, (i) conduct its
business and maintain its facilities in the ordinary course of business
consistent with past practice, (ii) maintain and preserve its business

suppliers, lessees, joint venture partners, licensees, lessors, licensors and
other third parties, and (v) maintain all of its operational assets in their
current condition (normal wear and tear excepted) to the end that the goodwill
and ongoing business of Newmont and its Subsidiaries shall not be impaired in
any material respect. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Newmont
shall (unless Franco-Nevada otherwise agrees in writing or as otherwise
expressly contemplated or permitted by this agreement):

      (i) not, nor permit any of its Subsidiaries to, redeem, purchase or offer
   to purchase any securities of its capital stock, or enter into any
   agreement, understanding or arrangement with respect to the repurchase of
   its capital stock (except for transactions among Newmont and its presently
   existing or future direct or indirect wholly-owned Subsidiaries);

      (ii) not make any amendment to its Articles of Incorporation that changes
   the fundamental attributes of Newmont Shares;

                                     B-10



      (iii) not make, declare or pay any dividend (other than quarterly

   share of preferred stock, with record and payment dates consistent with past
   practice);

      (iv) not adjust, split, combine or reclassify its capital stock or,

   person (except for transactions among Newmont, New Newmont and their direct
   or indirect wholly-owned Subsidiaries);

      (v) not incur, create, assume, commit to incur, guarantee or otherwise
   become liable or responsible for indebtedness for borrowed money that, in
   the aggregate, exceed $200 million, except in the ordinary course of
   business consistent with past practice and other than:

          (A) advances from Subsidiaries of Newmont made to fund expenditures
       permitted by this agreement, and

          (B) pursuant to existing operating or replacement lines of credit
       with third party lenders;

      (vi) not do or permit any action that would, or could reasonably be
   expected to, render any representation or warranty made by it in this
   agreement untrue or inaccurate in a manner that would, or could reasonably
   be expected to be, Materially Adverse to Newmont and its Subsidiaries, taken
   as a whole;

      (vii) promptly notify Franco-Nevada orally and in writing of any change
   in the ordinary course of the business, operations or properties of Newmont
   or its Subsidiaries and of any material complaints, investigations or
   hearings (or communications indicating that the same may be contemplated)
   that, individually is or in the aggregate are, or could reasonably be
   expected to be, Materially Adverse to Newmont and its Subsidiaries, taken as
   a whole;

      (viii) not enter into or modify any contract, agreement, commitment or
   arrangement with respect to any of the matters set forth in this (S)5.B; and

      (ix) not implement any other change in the business, affairs,
   capitalization or dividend policy of Newmont or its Subsidiaries that is, or
   in the aggregate are, or could reasonably be expected to be, Materially
   Adverse to Newmont and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

   (b) In addition, Newmont shall not (unless Newmont first consults with
Franco-Nevada or as otherwise expressly contemplated or permitted by this
agreement) do, permit any of its Subsidiaries to do or permit to occur any of
the following (directly or indirectly), except for transactions among Newmont,
New Newmont and their direct or indirect wholly-owned Subsidiaries:

      (i) issue, grant, sell, transfer, pledge, lease, dispose of, encumber or
   agree to issue, grant, sell, pledge, lease, dispose of or encumber;

          (A) any Newmont Shares or other securities entitling the holder to
       rights in respect of the securities or assets of Newmont or its
       Subsidiaries, other than pursuant to rights to acquire such securities
       existing at the date of this agreement, or

          (B) any property or assets of Newmont or any of its Subsidiaries,
       except in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice;

      (ii) except in accordance with executed agreements of purchase and sale
   provided to Franco-Nevada before the date of this agreement or as
   contemplated in (S)5.B(iii) below, acquire or agree to acquire (by purchase,
   amalgamation, merger or otherwise) any person or assets that individually
   exceeds $50 million or, in the aggregate, exceed $100 million; or

      (iii) except as provided in Newmont's regular budget, make, or commit to
   make, any capital expenditures that individually exceeds $50 million.

                                     B-11



6. ALTERNATIVE TRANSACTIONS

A. NON-SOLICITATION; ADVERSE ACTS.

   Franco-Nevada shall not (and shall not permit any of its Subsidiaries to),
directly or indirectly, through any of its or its Subsidiaries' Representatives
or otherwise, take any action that may in any way adversely affect or reduce
the likelihood of the successful completion of the Transactions. Without
limiting the foregoing, Franco-Nevada shall not (and shall not permit any of
its Subsidiaries to), directly or indirectly, through any of its or its
Subsidiaries' Representatives or otherwise:

      (a) solicit, initiate, encourage, or facilitate (including by way of
   furnishing non-public information) any inquiries or proposals regarding an
   Alternative Transaction;

      (b) participate in any discussions or negotiations regarding any
   Alternative Transaction;

      (c) approve or recommend any Alternative Transaction; or

      (d) accept or enter any agreement, arrangement or understanding related
   to any Alternative Transaction.

Additionally, Franco-Nevada shall:

      (a) immediately cease and cause to be terminated any existing discussions
   or negotiations, directly or indirectly, with any person with respect to any
   Alternative Transaction; and

      (b) not, directly or indirectly, waive or vary any terms or conditions of
   any confidentiality or standstill agreement that it has, as of the date
   hereof, entered into with any person considering any Alternative Transaction
   and shall immediately request the return (or the deletion from retrieval
   systems and data bases or the destruction) of all information.

B. PERMITTED ACTIONS.

   Notwithstanding anything in this agreement, nothing shall prevent the board
of directors of Franco-Nevada from:

      (a) complying with its obligations under applicable securities Law to
   prepare and deliver a directors' circular in response to a take-over bid; and

      (b) considering, participating in discussions or negotiations and
   entering into confidentiality agreements and providing information, in each
   case pursuant to (S)6, regarding an unsolicited BONA FIDE written
   Acquisition Proposal that (i) did not result from a breach of (S)6, and (ii)
   the board of directors of Franco-Nevada has determined by formal resolution,
   in good faith and after consultation with its financial advisors and outside
   legal counsel, is a Superior Proposal, but only to the extent that the board
   of directors of Franco-Nevada also has determined by formal resolution, in
   good faith after consultation with its outside counsel, that the failure to
   take such action would reasonably be expected to constitute a breach of its
   fiduciary duties.

The board of directors of Franco-Nevada shall not, except in compliance with
(S)6.E and F, approve, recommend, accept, support or enter into any other
agreement, arrangement or understanding in respect of any such Acquisition
Proposal.

C. NOTIFICATION OF ACQUISITION PROPOSAL.

   Franco-Nevada shall immediately notify Newmont, at first orally and then
promptly in writing, of any Acquisition Proposal and any inquiry that could
lead to any Alternative Transaction, or any amendments to the foregoing, or any
request for information relating to Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries in
connection with

                                     B-12



any Alternative Transaction or for access to the properties, books, or records
of Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries by any person that may be proposing
to make, or has made, any Alternative Transaction. Such notice shall include a
description of the material terms and conditions of any proposal, the identity
of the person making such proposal, inquiry or contact and such other details
of the proposal, inquiry, contact, discussions or negotiations as Newmont may,
in its sole discretion request, and shall attach copies of all letters,
agreements and other documentation (whether executed or in draft) in respect of
such Alternative Transaction. Franco-Nevada shall keep Newmont informed by way
of further such notices of the status including any change to the material
terms of any such Alternative Transaction or inquiry.

D. ACCESS TO INFORMATION.

   If Franco-Nevada receives a request for information from a person that has
made an unsolicited BONA FIDE written Acquisition Proposal that complies with
(S)6.B(b)(i) and (ii), then, and only in such case, the board of directors of
Franco-Nevada may, subject to the execution by such person of a confidentiality
agreement containing terms at least as favourable to Franco-Nevada as those
contained in this agreement and the Confidentiality Agreement, provide such
person with access to information regarding Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries
that then has been provided to Newmont; provided that Franco-Nevada sends a
copy of any such confidentiality agreement to Newmont promptly upon its
execution and Franco-Nevada provides Newmont with copies of the information
provided to such person and immediately provides Newmont with access to all
information to which such person was provided access.

E. IMPLEMENTATION OF SUPERIOR PROPOSAL.

   Subject to Newmont's rights under (S)6.F, Franco-Nevada may accept, approve
or recommend or enter into an agreement, understanding or arrangement to
implement a Superior Proposal in respect of which there has been no breach of
(S)6 only if:

      (a) Franco-Nevada has complied with its obligations under this (S)6 and
   has provided Newmont with a copy of all documentation (including unexecuted
   draft documentation) relating to the Superior Proposal;

      (b) a period (the "RESPONSE PERIOD") of five business days shall have
   elapsed from the later of the date on which Newmont received written notice
   from the board of directors of Franco-Nevada it has resolved, subject only
   to compliance with this (S)6.E, to accept, approve, recommend or enter into
   a binding agreement to implement the Superior Proposal and the date Newmont
   received all of the documentation described in (S)6.E(a); and

      (c) the board of directors of Franco-Nevada has considered any amendment
   to the terms of this agreement proposed by Newmont (or on its behalf) before
   the end of the Response Period and determined in good faith, after
   consultation with its financial advisors and outside legal counsel, that the
   Superior Proposal is more favourable to Franco-Nevada Shareholders from a
   financial point of view than the Arrangement and the other Transactions
   (with the amendments, if any, proposed by Newmont) and that it would be a
   breach of its fiduciary duties not to enter into a binding agreement in
   respect of the Superior Proposal.

Franco-Nevada shall provide to Newmont the basis for the above determination of
the board of directors of Franco-Nevada in reasonable detail (including copies
of evidence, if any, of financing of any Superior Proposal) promptly upon the
board of directors of Franco-Nevada determining that any Superior Proposal is
more favourable to Franco-Nevada Shareholders from a financial point of view
than the Arrangement and the other Transactions. If the Response Period would
not terminate before the Franco-Nevada Special Meeting, at the request of
Newmont, Franco-Nevada shall adjourn the Franco-Nevada Special Meeting to a
date that is no less than two and no more than five business days after the
Response Period.

F. RESPONSE BY NEWMONT.

   During the Response Period, Newmont shall have the right, but not the
obligation, to offer to amend the terms of this agreement. The board of
directors of Franco-Nevada shall review any such offer by Newmont to

                                     B-13



amend this agreement in good faith, in consultation with its financial advisors
and outside legal counsel, to determine whether the Acquisition Proposal to
which Newmont is responding would be a Superior Proposal when assessed against
Newmont's proposal. If the board of directors of Franco-Nevada does not so
determine by formal resolution, it shall enter into an amended agreement with
Newmont reflecting Newmont's amended proposal. If the board of directors of
Franco-Nevada does so determine and Franco-Nevada has paid (or has caused to be
paid) to Newmont $100 million in immediately available funds to an account
designated by Newmont, Franco-Nevada may approve, recommend, accept or enter
into an agreement, understanding or arrangement to implement the Superior
Proposal; provided that in no event shall the board of directors of
Franco-Nevada take any action that may obligate Franco-Nevada or any other
person to seek to interfere with the completion of the Transactions, or impose
any "break-up," "hello" or other fees or options or rights to acquire assets or
securities, or any other obligations that would survive completion of the
Transactions, on Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries, property or assets.
Franco-Nevada shall provide to Newmont the basis for the above determinations
of the board of directors of Franco-Nevada in reasonable detail (including
copies of evidence, if any, of financing of any Acquisition Proposal) promptly
upon the board of directors of Franco-Nevada determining that the Acquisition
Proposal remains a Superior Proposal.

G. GENERAL.

   Nothing in this (S)6 shall limit the obligation of Franco-Nevada to convene
and hold the Franco-Nevada Special Meeting to consider the Arrangement as
contemplated in (S)1.A. Each successive amendment to any Acquisition Proposal
shall constitute a new Acquisition Proposal for the purposes of (S)6.E and F
and Newmont shall be afforded a new Response Period in respect of each such
Acquisition Proposal.

7. TERMINATION AND AMENDMENT OF AGREEMENT

A. TERMINATION.

   The rights and obligations of the parties pursuant to this agreement, other
than pursuant to (S)(S)4.G (as it relates to the confidentiality of
information), 7, 8, 9 and 10, may be terminated at any time before the
Effective Time:

      (a) by mutual agreement in writing executed by Franco-Nevada and Newmont
   (for greater certainty, without further action on the part of Franco-Nevada
   Shareholders if termination occurs after the holding of the Franco-Nevada
   Special Meeting);

      (b) by Franco-Nevada,

          (i) after the Outside Date, if the conditions provided in (S)2.A and
       B have not been satisfied or waived by Franco-Nevada on or before the
       Outside Date and provided that Franco-Nevada has not failed to perform
       any covenant required to be performed by it pursuant to this agreement
       (or such failure is not Materially Adverse to Newmont and its
       Subsidiaries, taken as a whole) and no representation or warranty made
       by Franco-Nevada is untrue in any material respect; or

          (ii) at any time, if Newmont Shareholders do not cast (or do not
       cause to be cast) sufficient votes at the Newmont Special Meeting to
       approve all matters necessary to consummate the transactions
       contemplated by this agreement; or

          (iii) at any time, if a person other than Newmont or a related entity
       of Newmont unconditionally acquires not less than 50.1% of the Normandy
       shares, calculated on a fully diluted basis; and

      (c) by Newmont,

          (i) after the Outside Date, if the conditions provided in (S)2.A and
       C have not been satisfied or waived by Newmont on or before the Outside
       Date, provided that Newmont has not failed to perform any covenant
       required to be performed by it pursuant to this agreement (or such
       failure is not

                                     B-14



       Materially Adverse to Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries, taken as a
       whole) and no representation or warranty made by Newmont is untrue in
       any material respect; or

          (ii) at any time if the board of directors of Franco-Nevada

             (A) does not recommend, or withdraws or modifies in a manner
          adverse to Newmont or refuses to affirm (within 5 days of a written
          request) its recommendation, that Franco-Nevada Shareholders vote in
          favour of the Transactions, or

             (B) approves, recommends, accepts or enters into any agreement,
          undertaking or arrangement in respect of an Alternative Transaction;
          or

          (iii) at any time if the Franco-Nevada Special Meeting is cancelled,
       adjourned or delayed except as expressly contemplated by this agreement
       or agreed to by Newmont in writing;

          (iv) at any time, if Franco-Nevada Shareholders do not cast (or do
       not cause to be cast) sufficient votes at the Franco-Nevada Special
       Meeting to permit completion of the Arrangement; or

          (v) at any time, if a person other than Newmont or an affiliate of
       Newmont unconditionally acquires not less than 50.1% of the Normandy
       shares, calculated on a fully diluted basis.

   Neither Franco-Nevada nor Newmont may seek to rely upon any conditions
precedent in (S)2.A, B or C or exercise any termination right arising
therefrom, unless forthwith and in any event prior to the filing of the
articles of arrangement for acceptance by the Director, Franco-Nevada or
Newmont, as the case may be, has delivered a written notice to the other
specifying in reasonable detail all breaches of covenants, representations and
warranties or other matters which Franco-Nevada or Newmont, as the case may be,
are asserting as the basis for the non-fulfilment of the applicable condition
precedent or the exercise of the termination right, as the case may be. If any
such notice is delivered, provided that Franco-Nevada or Newmont, as the case
may be, is proceeding diligently to cure such matter, if such matter is
susceptible of being cured (for greater certainty, except by way of disclosure
in the case of representations and warranties), the other may not terminate
this agreement as a result thereof until the later of the Outside Date and the
expiration of a period of 15 days from such notice (the "TERMINATION PERIOD").
If such notice has been delivered prior to the date of the Franco-Nevada
Special Meeting, such meeting shall, unless the parties agree otherwise, be
postponed or adjourned until the expiry of such period. If such notice has been
delivered prior to the making of the application for the Final Order or the
filing of the articles of arrangement with the Director, such application and
such filing shall be postponed until the expiry of such period. For greater
certainty, if such matter is cured within the Termination Period without being
Materially Adverse to the curing party and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole,
this agreement may not be terminated as a result of the cured breach.

B. AMENDMENT

   This agreement, including the Plan of Arrangement, may be amended by written
agreement of the parties at any time before and after the Franco-Nevada Special
Meeting, but not later than the Effective Date and any such amendment may,
subject to applicable Law or the Interim Order, without limitation:

      (a) change the time for performance of any of the obligations or acts of
   the parties;

      (b) waive any inaccuracies in or modify any representation contained in
   this agreement or any document to be delivered pursuant to this agreement;

      (c) waive compliance with or modify any of the covenants contained in
   this agreement or waive or modify performance of any of the obligations of
   the parties; and/or

      (d) waive compliance with or modify any condition precedent contained in
   this agreement.

                                     B-15



C. MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING REGARDING AMENDMENTS

   If Franco-Nevada or Newmont, as the case may be, shall propose any amendment
or amendments to this agreement or the Plan of Arrangement, the other shall
consider such amendment and if it and its security holders are not prejudiced
by reason of any such amendment, it will cooperate so that such amendment can
be effected subject to applicable Law and the rights of the security holders.

D. APPROVAL OF AMENDMENTS.

   Franco-Nevada and Newmont will use all efforts to obtain the approvals of
the Court and Franco-Nevada Shareholders in respect of any amendments to this
agreement, including the Plan of Arrangement, to the extent required by
applicable Law.

8. TERMINATION PAYMENTS

A. PAYMENT TO NEWMONT.

   Provided that Newmont has not failed to perform any covenant required to be
performed by it pursuant to this agreement (or such failure is not Materially
Adverse to Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole) and no
representation or warranty made by Newmont in Schedule G is untrue in any
material respect, if Newmont exercises its right of termination pursuant to:

      (a) (S)7.A(c)(ii), (iii) or (iv) (where, in the case of (S)7.A(c)(iv), at
   the time of the Franco-Nevada Special Meeting, a BONA FIDE Acquisition
   Proposal that has been made has not been withdrawn) Franco-Nevada shall
   immediately pay (or cause to be paid) to Newmont $100 million in immediately
   available funds to an account designated by Newmont; or

      (b) pursuant to (S)7.A(c)(iv) (where, at the time of the Franco-Nevada
   Special Meeting, any BONA FIDE Acquisition Proposal that has been made has
   been withdrawn or no such proposal has been made), Franco-Nevada shall
   immediately pay (or cause to be paid) to Newmont $20 million in immediately
   available funds to an account designated by Newmont. If, at any time within
   twelve months after the date of such payment, Franco-Nevada approves,
   recommends, accepts, enters into or consummates an Acquisition Proposal,
   Franco-Nevada shall pay (or cause to be paid) to Newmont $80 million in
   immediately available funds to an account designated by Newmont upon
   consummation of that Acquisition Proposal.

   The fees payable pursuant to this (S)8.A shall in no event exceed $100
million.

B. PAYMENT TO FRANCO-NEVADA.

   If, after the Franco-Nevada Shareholder Approval is obtained, Newmont's
shareholders do not approve the Transactions (or that part of the Transactions
for which their approval is sought), provided that Franco-Nevada has not failed
to perform any covenant required to be performed by it pursuant to this
agreement (or such failure is not Materially Adverse to Franco-Nevada and its
Subsidiaries or Newmont and its Subsidiaries, in each case taken as a whole)
and no representation or warranty made by Franco-Nevada is untrue in any
material respect, if Franco-Nevada exercises its right of termination pursuant
to (S)7.A(b)(ii), Newmont shall pay to Franco-Nevada $10 million in immediately
available funds to an account designated by Franco-Nevada, for Franco-Nevada's
out-of-pocket expenses.

9. CONFIDENTIALITY AND PUBLIC DISCLOSURE

   Franco-Nevada and Newmont shall consult with each other as to the general
nature of any news releases or public statements with respect to this agreement
or the Transactions, and shall use their respective efforts not to issue any
news releases or public statements inconsistent with the results of such
consultations. Subject to applicable law, each party shall use its efforts to
enable the other party to review and comment on all such news

                                     B-16



releases and public statements prior to the release thereof. The parties agree
to issue jointly the news release in the agreed form with respect to this
agreement and the Transactions following the execution of this agreement in
accordance with (S)1.D. Franco-Nevada and Newmont shall consult with each other
in preparing and making any filings and communications in connection with any
Regulatory Approvals and in seeking any third-party consents contemplated in
(S)4.A.

C. BINDING EFFECT.

   This agreement, including (for greater certainty) the Plan of Arrangement,

   Franco-Nevada, that is Materially Adverse to any of Franco-Nevada and its
   Subsidiaries; and

   acquired by Acquisitionco or all acquired by NSULC, and shall not be
   acquired by a combination of Acquisitionco and NSULC), by either

   holder),

          (i) if the Holdco Shares are sold to Acquisitionco, 0.80 Exchangeable
       Shares (plus the Ancillary Rights granted in connection therewith) per
       Franco-Nevada Share owned by the Holdco, or

          (ii) if the Holdco Shares are sold to NSULC, 0.80 Newmont Shares per

   for the same aggregate consideration payable therefor, the aggregate number
   of Newmont Shares, that such holder would have been entitled to receive as a
   result of the transactions contemplated by this Plan of Arrangement, if, on
   the Effective Date, such holder had been the registered holder of the number
   of Franco-Nevada Shares to which such holder was theretofore entitled upon

   Newmont in respect of such shareholder's indemnification obligations as set
   out above;

   Holdco;

      (g) on the Effective Date, Holdco has no issued shares outstanding other
   than the shares described above and such shares will be owned by the
   Franco-Nevada Shareholder (and, if the Holdco Shares are to be acquired by
   Acquisitionco, one or more of its wholly-owned subsidiaries);

                                     B-33

   transaction (or conducted any business or operations or engaged in any
   activity) other than those described herein;

   returns of its Holdco in respect of the taxation year-end of such Holdco
   ending immediately prior to the acquisition of such Holdco Shares by
   Acquisitionco or NSULC, as the case may be, subject to Newmont's right to

transferred for Exchangeable Shares under the Arrangement, together with a duly
completed Letter of Transmittal and Election Form or a Holdco Letter of
Transmittal and Election Form, as the case may be, and such other documents and
instruments as the Transfer Agent may reasonably require, the holder of such
surrendered certificate shall be entitled to receive, and after the Effective
Time the Transfer Agent shall deliver to such person, certificates registered
in the name of such person representing that number of Exchangeable Shares
which such person is entitled to receive (together with any cash in lieu of
Exchangeable Shares pursuant to (S)4.4, less any amounts withheld pursuant to
(S)4.7), and any certificate so surrendered shall forthwith be cancelled. In
the event of a transfer of ownership of such Franco-Nevada Shares which was not
registered in the transfer records of Franco-Nevada, certificates representing
the number of Exchangeable Shares issuable in exchange for such Franco-Nevada
Shares may be registered in the name of and issued to the transferee if the
certificate representing such Franco-Nevada Shares is presented to the Transfer
Agent, accompanied by a duly completed Letter of Transmittal and Election Form
or Holdco Letter of Transmittal and Election Form, as the case may be, and all
documents required to evidence and effect such transfer. Without limiting the
provisions of (S)2.7 and 4.6, until surrendered as contemplated by this (S)4.1,
each certificate, which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented one
or more outstanding Franco-Nevada Shares that, under the Arrangement, were
exchanged for

                                     B-36



Exchangeable Shares pursuant to (S)2.3, shall be deemed at all times after the
Effective Time to represent only the right to receive upon such surrender (i) a
certificate representing the Exchangeable Shares as contemplated by this
(S)4.1, (ii) a cash payment in lieu of any fractional Exchangeable Shares as
contemplated under (S)4.4 and (iii) any dividends or distributions with a
record date after the Effective Time theretofore paid or payable with respect
to the Exchangeable Shares as contemplated by (S)4.3, in each case less any
amounts withheld pursuant to (S)4.7.

   4.2 EXCHANGE OF CERTIFICATES FOR NEWMONT SHARES. At or promptly after the
Effective Time, NSULC shall deposit or cause to be deposited with the Transfer
Agent, for the benefit of the holders of Franco-Nevada Shares and of the Holdco
Shareholders, certificates representing that whole number of Newmont Shares
issuable under the Arrangement. Upon surrender (on or prior to the Election
Deadline) to the Transfer Agent for cancellation of a certificate which
immediately prior to the Effective Time represented outstanding Franco-Nevada
Shares or Holdco Shares that were transferred for Newmont Shares under the
Arrangement, together with a duly completed Letter of Transmittal and Election
Form or a Holdco Letter of Transmittal and Election Form, as the case may be,
and such other documents and instruments as the Transfer Agent may reasonably
require, the holder of such surrendered certificate shall be entitled to
receive, and after the Effective Time the Transfer Agent shall deliver to such
person, a certificate representing that number of Newmont Shares which such
person is entitled to receive (together with any dividends or distributions
with respect thereto pursuant to (S)4.3 and any cash in lieu of fractional
Newmont Shares pursuant to (S)4.4, less any amounts withheld pursuant to
(S)4.7), and any certificate so surrendered shall forthwith be cancelled. In
the event of a transfer of ownership of such Franco-Nevada Shares which was not
registered in the transfer records of Franco-Nevada, the certificates
representing the number of Newmont Shares issuable in exchange for such
Franco-Nevada Shares may be registered in the name of and issued to the
transferee if the certificate representing such Franco-Nevada Shares is
presented to the Transfer Agent on or prior to the Election Deadline,
accompanied by a duly completed Letter of Transmittal and Election Form or
Holdco Letter of Transmittal and Election Form, as the case may be, and all
documents required to evidence and effect such transfer. Without limiting the
provisions of (S)2.7 and 4.6, until surrendered as contemplated by this (S)4.1,
each certificate, which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented one
or more outstanding Franco-Nevada Shares that, under the Arrangement, were
exchanged for Newmont Shares pursuant to (S)2.3, shall be deemed at all times
after the Effective Time to represent only the right to receive upon such
surrender (i) a certificate representing the Newmont Shares as contemplated by
this (S)4.1, (ii) a cash payment in lieu of any fractional Newmont Shares as
contemplated under (S)4.4 and (iii) any dividends or distributions with a
record date after the Effective Time theretofore paid or payable with respect
to the Newmont Shares as contemplated by (S)4.3, in each case less any amounts
withheld pursuant to (S)4.7.

   4.3 DISTRIBUTIONS WITH RESPECT TO UNSURRENDERED CERTIFICATES. No dividends
or other distributions paid, declared or made with respect to (i) Exchangeable
Shares or (ii) Newmont Shares, in each case with a record date after the
Effective Time, shall be paid to the holder of any unsurrendered certificate
which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented outstanding
Franco-Nevada Shares or outstanding Holdco Shares or in lieu of fractional
Exchangeable Shares or Newmont Shares shall be paid to any such person pursuant
to (S)4.4, unless and until such person shall have complied with the provisions
of (S)4.1 or 4.2, as applicable. Subject to applicable Law, and to the
provisions of (S)4.6, at the time such person shall have complied with the
provisions of such sections (or, in the case of clause (z) below, at the
appropriate payment date), there shall be paid to such person, without interest
(x) the amount of any cash payable in lieu of a fractional Exchangeable Share
or Newmont Share to which such person is entitled pursuant to (S)4.4, (y) the
amount of dividends or other distributions with a record date after the
Effective Time theretofore paid with respect to the Exchangeable Share or the
Newmont Share, as the case may be, to which such person is entitled pursuant
hereto, and (z) on the appropriate payment date, the amount of dividends or
other distributions with a record date after the Effective Time but prior to
the date of compliance by such person with the provisions of (S)4.1 or 4.2 and
a payment date subsequent to the date of such compliance and payable with
respect to such Exchangeable Shares or Newmont Shares, as the case may be.

   4.4 NO FRACTIONAL SHARES. No certificates representing fractional
Exchangeable Shares or fractional Newmont Shares shall be issued upon
compliance with the provisions of (S)4.1 or 4.2 and no dividend, stock split

                                     B-37



or other change in the capital structure of Acquisitionco or Newmont shall
relate to any such fractional security and such fractional interests shall not
entitle the owner thereof to exercise any rights as a security holder of
Acquisitionco or Newmont. Acquisitionco will make arrangements with the
Transfer Agent for the issuance to the Transfer Agent of Newmont Shares in
respect of any such fractional security and shall instruct the Transfer Agent
to aggregate and, as soon as is reasonably practicable following the Effective
Date, sell such Newmont Shares. The proceeds (net of any commissions in respect
of the sale but excluding any deduction for the fees of the Transfer Agent,
which fees shall be paid by Acquisitionco) (the "Net Proceeds") received by the
Transfer Agent from such sale shall, as soon as is reasonably practicable be
distributed to each person otherwise entitled to a fractional interest in an
Exchangeable Share or Newmont Share on a PRO RATA basis. The Transfer Agent
shall be entitled to retain such brokers and advisors as may be necessary in
connection with the sale of the Newmont Shares and shall not be liable for any
action taken or omitted to be taken in connection with the sale of the Newmont
Shares or the distribution of the Net Proceeds referred to in this (S)4.4.
Under no circumstances shall interest accrue or be paid by Acquisitionco,
Newmont or the Transfer Agent to persons depositing Franco-Nevada Shares
pursuant to (S)2.3, regardless of any delay in selling the Newmont Shares or
making any delivery or payment in respect of such shares.

   4.5 LOST CERTIFICATES. In the event any certificate which immediately prior
to the Effective Time represented one or more outstanding Franco-Nevada Shares
that were exchanged pursuant to (S)2.3 shall have been lost, stolen or
destroyed, upon the making of an affidavit of that fact by the person claiming
such certificate to be lost, stolen or destroyed, the Transfer Agent will issue
in exchange for such lost, stolen or destroyed certificate, any cash and/or
certificates representing Exchangeable Shares or Newmont Shares (and any
dividends or distributions with respect thereto) deliverable in accordance with
(S)2.3 and such holder's Letter of Transmittal and Election Form or Holdco
Letter of Transmittal and Election Form, as the case may be. When authorizing
such payment in exchange for any lost, stolen or destroyed certificate, the
person to whom cash (if any) and/or certificates representing Exchangeable
Shares or Newmont Shares are to be issued shall, as a condition precedent to
the issuance thereof, give a bond satisfactory to Franco-Nevada, Acquisitionco,
Newmont and their respective transfer agents in such amount as Franco-Nevada,
Acquisitionco or Newmont may direct or otherwise indemnify Franco-Nevada,
Acquisitionco and Newmont in a manner satisfactory to Franco-Nevada,
Acquisitionco and Newmont against any claim that may be made against
Franco-Nevada, Acquisitionco or Newmont with respect to the certificate alleged
to have been lost, stolen or destroyed.

   4.6 EXTINCTION OF RIGHTS. Any certificate which immediately prior to the
Effective Time represented outstanding Franco-Nevada Shares that were exchanged
pursuant to (S)2.3 that is not deposited with all other instruments required by
(S)4.1 or 4.2 on or prior to the date of the notice referred to in (S)7(2) of
the Exchangeable Share Provisions shall cease to represent a claim or interest
of any kind or nature as a securityholder of Acquisitionco or Newmont. On such
date, the cash and/or Exchangeable Shares and/or Newmont Shares to which the
former holder of the certificate referred to in the preceding sentence was
ultimately entitled shall be deemed to have been surrendered for no
consideration to Acquisitionco. None of Newmont, Franco-Nevada, Acquisitionco,
Callco or the Transfer Agent shall be liable to any person in respect of any
cash delivered to a public official pursuant to any applicable abandoned
property, escheat or similar Law.

   4.7 WITHHOLDING RIGHTS. Franco-Nevada, Acquisitionco, Callco, Newmont and
the Transfer Agent shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from any dividend
or consideration otherwise payable to any holder of Franco-Nevada Shares,
Holdco Shares, Newmont Shares or Exchangeable Shares such amounts as
Franco-Nevada, Acquisitionco, Callco, Newmont or the Transfer Agent is required
to deduct and withhold with respect to such payment under the ITA, United
States tax laws or any other applicable Law. To the extent that amounts are so
withheld, such withheld amounts shall be treated for all purposes hereof as
having been paid to the holder of the securities in respect of which such
deduction and withholding was made, provided that such withheld amounts are
actually remitted to the appropriate taxing Agency.

                                     B-38



SECTION 5--RIGHTS OF CALLCO TO ACQUIRE EXCHANGEABLE SHARES

   5.1 CALLCO LIQUIDATION CALL RIGHT

      (a) Callco shall have the overriding right (the "LIQUIDATION CALL
   RIGHT"), in the event of and notwithstanding the proposed liquidation,
   dissolution or winding-up of Acquisitionco or any other distribution of the
   assets of Acquisitionco among its shareholders for the purpose of winding up
   its affairs, pursuant to (S)5 of the Exchangeable Share Provisions, to
   purchase from all but not less than all of the holders of Exchangeable
   Shares (other than any holder of Exchangeable Shares which is Newmont or an
   affiliate of Newmont) on the Liquidation Date all but not less than all of
   the Exchangeable Shares held by each such holder on payment by Callco of an
   amount per share (the "LIQUIDATION CALL PURCHASE PRICE") equal to the
   Current Market Price of Newmont Shares on the last business day prior to the
   Liquidation Date, which shall be satisfied in full by Callco delivering or
   causing to be delivered to such holder one Newmont Share, which on issue
   will be admitted to listing and traded on the NYSE (subject to official
   notice of issuance), plus any Dividend Amount. In the event of the exercise
   of the Liquidation Call Right by Callco, each holder shall be obligated to
   sell all the Exchangeable Shares held by the holder to Callco on the
   Liquidation Date on payment by Callco to the holder of the Liquidation Call
   Purchase Price for each such share, and Acquisitionco shall have no
   obligation to pay any Liquidation Amount or Dividend Amount to the holders
   of such shares so purchased by Callco.

      (b) To exercise the Liquidation Call Right, Callco must notify the
   Transfer Agent, as agent for the holders of Exchangeable Shares and
   Acquisitionco of Callco's intention to exercise such right at least 45 days
   before the Liquidation Date in the case of a voluntary liquidation,
   dissolution or winding-up of Acquisitionco or any other voluntary
   distribution of the assets of Acquisitionco among its shareholders for the
   purpose of winding up its affairs, and at least five business days before
   the Liquidation Date in the case of an involuntary liquidation, dissolution
   or winding-up of Acquisitionco or any other involuntary distribution of the
   assets of Acquisitionco among its shareholders for the purpose of winding up
   its affairs. The Transfer Agent will notify the holders of Exchangeable
   Shares as to whether or not Callco has exercised the Liquidation Call Right
   forthwith after the expiry of the period during which the same may be
   exercised by Callco. If Callco exercises the Liquidation Call Right, then on
   the Liquidation Date, Callco will purchase and the holders will sell all of
   the Exchangeable Shares then outstanding for a price per share equal to the
   Liquidation Call Purchase Price.

      (c) For the purposes of completing the purchase of the Exchangeable
   Shares pursuant to the Liquidation Call Right, Callco shall deposit or cause
   to be deposited with the Transfer Agent, on or before the Liquidation Date,
   certificates representing the aggregate number of Newmont Shares which
   Callco shall deliver or cause to be delivered pursuant to (S)5.1(a) and a
   cheque or cheques of Callco payable at par at any branch of the bankers of
   Callco representing the aggregate Dividend Amount, if any, in payment of the
   total Liquidation Call Purchase Price, in each case less any amounts
   withheld pursuant to (S)4.7. Provided that Callco has complied with the
   immediately preceding sentence, on and after the Liquidation Date the
   holders of the Exchangeable Shares shall cease to be holders of the
   Exchangeable Shares and shall not be entitled to exercise any of the rights
   of holders in respect thereof (including any rights under the Voting and
   Exchange Trust Agreement), other than the right to receive their
   proportionate part of the aggregate Liquidation Call Purchase Price, unless
   payment of the aggregate Liquidation Call Purchase Price for the
   Exchangeable Shares shall not be made upon presentation and surrender of
   share certificates in accordance with the following provisions of this
   (S)5.1(c), in which case the rights of the holders shall remain unaffected
   until the aggregate Liquidation Call Purchase Price has been paid in the
   manner herein provided. Upon surrender to the Transfer Agent of a
   certificate or certificates representing Exchangeable Shares, together with
   such other documents and instruments as may be required to effect a transfer
   of Exchangeable Shares under the CBCA and articles of Acquisitionco and such
   additional documents, instruments and payments as the Transfer Agent may
   reasonably require, the holder of such surrendered certificate or
   certificates shall be entitled to receive in exchange therefor, and the
   Transfer Agent on behalf of Callco shall transfer to such holder, the
   Newmont Shares to which such holder is entitled and as soon as reasonably
   practicable thereafter the Transfer Agent shall deliver to such holder
   certificates representing the Newmont Shares to which the

                                     B-39



   holder is entitled and a cheque or cheques of Callco payable at par at any
   branch of the bankers of Callco representing the Dividend Amount, if any,
   and when received by the Transfer Agent, all dividends and other
   distributions with respect to such Newmont Shares with a record date after
   the Liquidation Date and before the date of the transfer of such Newmont
   Shares to such holder, less any amounts withheld pursuant to (S)4.7. If
   Callco does not exercise the Liquidation Call Right in the manner described
   above, on the Liquidation Date, the holders of the Exchangeable Shares will
   be entitled to receive in exchange therefor the Liquidation Amount otherwise
   payable by Acquisitionco in connection with the liquidation, dissolution or
   winding-up of Acquisitionco or any distribution of the assets of
   Acquisitionco among its shareholders for the purpose of winding up its
   affairs pursuant to Article (S)5 of the Exchangeable Share Provisions.

   5.2 CALLCO REDEMPTION CALL RIGHT

   In addition to Callco's rights contained in the Exchangeable Share
Provisions, including the Retraction Call Right (as defined in the Exchangeable
Share Provisions), Callco shall have the following rights in respect of the
Exchangeable Shares:

      (a) Callco shall have the overriding right (the "REDEMPTION CALL RIGHT"),
   notwithstanding the proposed redemption of the Exchangeable Shares by
   Acquisitionco pursuant to Article (S)7 of the Exchangeable Share Provisions,
   to purchase from all but not less than all of the holders of Exchangeable
   Shares (other than any holder of Exchangeable Shares which is Newmont or an
   affiliate of Newmont) on the Redemption Date all but not less than all of
   the Exchangeable Shares held by each such holder on payment by Callco to
   each holder of an amount per Exchangeable Share (the "REDEMPTION CALL
   PURCHASE PRICE") equal to the Current Market Price of a Newmont Share on the
   last business day prior to the Redemption Date, which shall be satisfied in
   full by Callco delivering or causing to be delivered to such holder one
   Newmont Share, which on issue will be admitted to listing and traded on the
   NYSE (subject to official notice of issuance), plus any Dividend Amount. In
   the event of the exercise of the Redemption Call Right by Callco, each
   holder shall be obligated to sell all the Exchangeable Shares held by the
   holder to Callco on the Redemption Date on payment by Callco to the holder
   of the Redemption Call Purchase Price for each such share, and Acquisitionco
   shall have no obligation to redeem, or to pay any Dividend Amount in respect
   of, such shares so purchased by Callco.

      (b) To exercise the Redemption Call Right, Callco must notify the
   Transfer Agent, as agent for the holders of Exchangeable Shares and
   Acquisitionco of Callco's intention to exercise such right at least 60 days
   before the Redemption Date, except in the case of a redemption occurring as
   a result of a Newmont Control Transaction (as defined in the Exchangeable
   Share Provisions) or an Exchangeable Share Voting Event, in which case
   Callco shall so notify the Transfer Agent and Acquisitionco on or before the
   Redemption Date. The Transfer Agent will notify the holders of the
   Exchangeable Shares as to whether or not Callco has exercised the Redemption
   Call Right forthwith after the expiry of the period during which the same
   may be exercised by Callco. If Callco exercises the Redemption Call Right,
   on the Redemption Date Callco will purchase and the holders will sell all of
   the Exchangeable Shares then outstanding for a price per share equal to the
   Redemption Call Purchase Price.

      (c) For the purposes of completing the purchase of the Exchangeable
   Shares pursuant to the Redemption Call Right, Callco shall deposit or cause
   to be deposited with the Transfer Agent, on or before the Redemption Date,
   certificates representing the aggregate number of Newmont Shares which
   Callco shall deliver or cause to be delivered pursuant to (S)5.2(a) and a
   cheque or cheques of Callco payable at par at any branch of the bankers of
   Callco representing the aggregate Dividend Amount, if any, in payment of the
   aggregate Redemption Call Purchase Price, in each case less any amounts
   withheld pursuant to (S)4.7. Provided that Callco has complied with the
   immediately preceding sentence, on and after the Redemption Date the holders
   of the Exchangeable Shares shall cease to be holders of the Exchangeable
   Shares and shall not be entitled to exercise any of the rights of holders in
   respect thereof (including any rights under the Voting and Exchange Trust
   Agreement), other than the right to receive their proportionate part of the
   aggregate Redemption Call Purchase Price, unless payment of the aggregate
   Redemption Call Purchase Price for the Exchangeable Shares shall not be made
   upon presentation and surrender of share certificates in

                                     B-40



   accordance with the following provisions of this (S)5.2(c), in which case
   the rights of the holders shall remain unaffected until the aggregate
   Redemption Call Purchase Price has been paid in the manner herein provided.
   Upon surrender to the Transfer Agent of a certificate or certificates
   representing Exchangeable Shares, together with such other documents and
   instruments as may be required to effect a transfer of Exchangeable Shares
   under the CBCA and articles of Acquisitionco and such additional documents,
   instruments and payments as the Transfer Agent may reasonably require, the
   holder of such surrendered certificate or certificates shall be entitled to
   receive in exchange therefor, and the Transfer Agent on behalf of Callco
   shall transfer to such holder, the Newmont Shares to which such holder is
   entitled and as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter the Transfer Agent
   shall deliver to such holder certificates representing the Newmont Shares to
   which the holder is entitled and a cheque or cheques of Callco payable at
   par at any branch of the bankers of Callco representing the Dividend Amount,
   if any, and when received by the Transfer Agent, all dividends and other
   distributions with respect to such Newmont Shares with a record date after
   the Redemption Date and before the date of the transfer of such Newmont
   Shares to such holder, less any amounts withheld pursuant to (S)4.7. If
   Callco does not exercise the Redemption Call Right in the manner described
   above, on the Redemption Date the holders of the Exchangeable Shares will be
   entitled to receive in exchange therefor the redemption price otherwise
   payable by Acquisitionco in connection with the redemption of the
   Exchangeable Shares pursuant to Article (S)7 of the Exchangeable Share
   Provisions.

   5.3 CONTINUATION OF RIGHTS. For greater certainty, the amalgamation of
Acquisitionco pursuant to (S)2.3(f) shall not impair the Liquidation Call Right
or the Redemption Call Right, which thereafter may continue to be exercised by
Callco.

   5.4 DESIGNATION. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this
(S)5, the Voting and Exchange Trust Agreement, the Support Agreement or in the
provisions attaching to the Exchangeable Shares, the Liquidation Call Right
and/or the Redemption Call Right may be exercised by, and the related
obligations thereunder performed by, Newmont, Newmont Subco or an affiliate of
Newmont, either alone or together with Callco.

   5.5 SHAREHOLDER RIGHTS PLAN. The rights ("NEWMONT RIGHTS") issued under
Newmont's shareholder rights plan, dated as of August 31, 2000, shall attach to
all Newmont Shares issued in exchange for Franco-Nevada Shares and Holdco
Shares, as the case may be, pursuant to the Arrangement and upon the exercise
of Franco-Nevada Options. The Newmont Rights shall not attach to any
Exchangeable Shares issued under the Plan of Arrangement.

SECTION 6--AMENDMENT

   6.1 PLAN OF ARRANGEMENT AMENDMENT.

      (a) Franco-Nevada reserves the right to amend, modify and/or supplement
   this Plan of Arrangement at any time and from time to time (with the prior
   written consent of Newmont), provided that any such amendment, modification
   and/or supplement must be contained in a written document that is filed with
   the Court and, if made after the Special Meeting, approved by the Court and
   communicated to shareholders in the manner required by the Court (if so
   required).

      (b) Any amendment, modification or supplement to this Plan of Arrangement
   may be proposed by Franco-Nevada (with the prior written consent of Newmont)
   at any time before or at the Special Meeting with or without any other prior
   notice or communication and, if so proposed and accepted by the persons
   voting at the Special Meeting, shall become part of this Plan of Arrangement
   for all purposes.

      (c) Any amendment, modification or supplement to this Plan of Arrangement
   that is approved or directed by the Court following the Special Meeting
   shall be effective only if it is consented to in writing by Franco-Nevada
   and Newmont and, if required by the Court, is consented to by Franco-Nevada
   Shareholders voting in the manner directed by the Court.

                                     B-41



      (d) Any amendment, modification or supplement to this Plan of Arrangement
   may be made prior to the Effective Date unilaterally by Newmont, provided
   that it concerns a matter which, in the reasonable opinion of Newmont, is of
   an administrative nature required to better give effect to the
   implementation of this Plan of Arrangement and is not adverse to the
   financial or economic interests of any Franco-Nevada Shareholder.

SECTION 7--FURTHER ASSURANCES

   Franco-Nevada and Newmont shall make, do and execute, or cause to be made,
done and executed, all such further acts, deeds, agreements, transfers,
assurances, instruments or documents as may reasonably be required by either of
them to document or evidence any of the transactions or events set out in this
Plan of Arrangement.

SECTION 8--NOTICE

   Any notice to be given by Newmont pursuant to the Arrangement will be deemed
to have been properly given if it is mailed by first class mail, postage
prepaid, to registered Franco-Nevada Shareholders at their addresses as shown
on the register of Shareholders maintained by Franco-Nevada and will be deemed
to have been received on the first day following the date of mailing which is a
business day.

   The provisions of this Plan of Arrangement, the Arrangement Agreement, the
Letter of Transmittal and Election Form and the Holdco Letter of Transmittal
and Election Form apply notwithstanding any accidental omission to give notice
to any one or more Shareholders and notwithstanding any interruption of mail
services in Canada or, the United States or elsewhere following mailing. In the
event of any interruption of mail service following mailing, Newmont intends to
make reasonable efforts to disseminate any notice by other means, such as
publication. Except as otherwise required or permitted by law, if post offices
in Canada are not open for the deposit of mail, any notice which Newmont or the
Transfer Agent may give or cause to be given under the Arrangement will be
deemed to have been properly given and to have been received by Franco-Nevada
Shareholders if (i) it is given to the TSE for dissemination or (ii) it is
published once in the National Edition of The Globe and Mail and in the daily
newspapers of general circulation in each of the French and English languages
in the City of Montreal, provided that if the National Edition of The Globe and
Mail is not being generally circulated, publication thereof will be made in The
Financial Post or any other daily newspaper of general circulation published in
the City of Toronto.

   Notwithstanding the provisions of the Arrangement Agreement, this Plan of
Arrangement, the Letter of Transmittal and Election Form and the Holdco Letter
of Transmittal and Election Form, certificates for Newmont Shares and cheques
in payment for Newmont Shares exchanged pursuant to the Arrangement need not be
mailed if Newmont determines that delivery thereof by mail may be delayed.
Persons entitled to cheques and certificates which are not mailed for the
foregoing reason may take delivery thereof at the office of the Transfer Agent
to which the deposited certificates for Newmont Shares in respect of which the
cheque and certificates being issued were deposited, upon application to the
Transfer Agent, until such time as Newmont has determined that delivery by mail
will not longer be delayed. Newmont will provide notice of any such
determination not to mail made hereunder as soon as reasonably practicable
after the making of such determination and in accordance with this (S)8.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the Arrangement Agreement, this Plan of
Arrangement, the Letter of Transmittal and Election Form and the Holdco Letter
of Transmittal and Election Form, the deposit of cheques and certificates with
the Transfer Agent in such circumstances will constitute delivery to the
persons entitled thereto and the Newmont Shares will be deemed to have been
paid for immediately upon such deposit.

      (b) in the case of a stock dividend declared on the Newmont Shares to be
   paid in Newmont Shares, by the issue or transfer by Acquisitionco of such
   number of Exchangeable Shares for each Exchangeable Share as is equal to the

Shares entitled to receive payment of, and the payment date for, any dividend
declared on the Exchangeable Shares under (S)3(1) hereof shall be the same

dividend declared on the Newmont Shares. The record date for the determination
of the holders of Exchangeable Shares entitled to receive Exchangeable Shares
in connection with any subdivision, redivision or change of the Exchangeable
Shares under (S)3(1)(b) hereof and the effective date of such subdivision shall
be the same dates as the record and payment date, respectively, for the
corresponding stock dividend declared on the Newmont Shares.

   (4) If on any payment date for any dividends declared on the Exchangeable
Shares under (S)3(1) hereof the dividends are not paid in full on all of the
Exchangeable Shares then outstanding, any such dividends that remain unpaid
shall be paid on a subsequent date or dates determined by the Board of
Directors on which Acquisitionco shall have sufficient moneys, assets or
property properly applicable to the payment of such dividends.

   (5) The Board of Directors shall determine, in good faith and in its sole
discretion, economic equivalence for the purposes of these share provisions,
including (S)3(1) hereof, and each such determination shall be conclusive and
binding on Acquisitionco and its shareholders. In making each such
determination, the following factors shall, without excluding other factors
determined by the Board of Directors to be relevant, be considered by the Board
of Directors:

   warrants to subscribe for or purchase Newmont Shares (or securities
   exchangeable for or convertible into or carrying rights to acquire Newmont
   Shares), the relationship between the exercise price of each such right,
   option or warrant and the Current Market Price;

      (c) in the case of the issuance or distribution of any other form of
   property (including any shares or securities of Newmont of any class other
   than Newmont Shares, any rights, options or warrants other than those
   referred to in (S)3(5)(b) hereof, any evidences of indebtedness of Newmont
   or any assets of Newmont), the relationship between the fair market value
   (as determined by the Board of Directors in the manner above contemplated)
   of such property to be issued or distributed with respect to each
   outstanding Newmont Share and the Current Market Price of a Newmont Share;
   and

      (d) in all such cases, the general taxation consequences of the relevant
   event to holders of Exchangeable Shares to the extent that such consequences
   may differ from the taxation consequences to holders of Newmont Shares as a

   marginal taxation rates and without regard to the individual circumstances
   of holders of Exchangeable Shares).

declared and paid to date on the Newmont Shares shall have been declared and
paid on the Exchangeable Shares; and (ii) in the case of an issuance of any

   (1) In the event of the liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of
Acquisitionco or any other distribution of the assets of Acquisitionco among
its shareholders for the purpose of winding up its affairs, subject to the
exercise by Callco of the Liquidation Call Right, a holder of Exchangeable
Shares shall be entitled, subject to applicable law, to receive from the assets
of Acquisitionco in respect of each Exchangeable Share held by such holder on
the effective date (the "LIQUIDATION DATE") of such liquidation, dissolution,
winding-up or other distribution, before any distribution of any part of the
assets of Acquisitionco among the holders of the Common Shares, Special Shares
or any other shares ranking junior to the Exchangeable Shares, an amount per
share (the "LIQUIDATION AMOUNT") equal to the Current Market Price of a Newmont
Share on the last business day prior to the Liquidation Date, which shall be
satisfied in full by Acquisitionco delivering or causing to be delivered to
such holder one Newmont Share, plus an amount equal the Dividend Amount.

   (2) On or promptly after the Liquidation Date, and provided the Liquidation
Call Right has not been exercised by Callco, Acquisitionco shall pay or cause
to be paid to the holders of the Exchangeable Shares the Liquidation Amount for
each such Exchangeable Share upon presentation and surrender of the
certificates representing such Exchangeable Shares, together with such other
documents and instruments as may be required to effect a transfer of
Exchangeable Shares under the CBCA and the Articles of Acquisitionco and such
additional documents, instruments and payments as the Transfer Agent and
Acquisitionco may reasonably require, at the registered office of Acquisitionco
or at any office of the Transfer Agent as may be specified by Acquisitionco by
notice to the holders of the Exchangeable Shares. Payment of the Liquidation
Amount for such Exchangeable Shares shall be made by transferring or causing to
be transferred to each holder the Newmont Shares to which such holder is
entitled and by delivering to such holder, at the address of such holder
recorded in the register of shareholders of Acquisitionco for the Exchangeable
Shares or by holding for pick-up by such holder at the registered office of
Acquisitionco or at any office of the Transfer Agent as may be specified by
Acquisitionco by notice to the holders of Exchangeable Shares, on behalf of
Acquisitionco certificates representing Newmont Shares (which shares shall be
fully paid and shall be free and clear of any lien, claim or encumbrance) and a
cheque of Acquisitionco payable at par at any branch of the bankers of
Acquisitionco in respect of the Dividend Amount, in each case less any amounts
withheld on account of tax required to be deducted and withheld therefrom. On
and after the Liquidation Date, the holders of the Exchangeable Shares shall
cease to be holders of such Exchangeable Shares and shall not be entitled to
exercise any of the rights of holders in respect thereof (including any rights
under the Voting and Exchange Trust Agreement), other than the right to receive
the Liquidation Amount, unless payment of the total Liquidation Amount for such
Exchangeable Shares shall not be made upon presentation and surrender of share
certificates in accordance with the foregoing

                                     B-49



provisions, in which case the rights of the holders shall remain unaffected
until the Liquidation Amount has been paid in the manner hereinbefore provided.
Acquisitionco shall have the right at any time after the Liquidation Date to
transfer or cause to be issued or transferred to, and deposited with, the Agent
the Liquidation Amount in respect of the Exchangeable Shares represented by
certificates that have not at the Liquidation Date been surrendered by the
holders thereof, such Liquidation Amount to be held by the Agent as trustee for
and on behalf of, and for the use and benefit of, such holders. Upon such
deposit being made, the rights of a holder of Exchangeable Shares after such
deposit shall be limited to receiving its proportionate part of the Liquidation
Amount for such Exchangeable Shares so deposited, without interest, and when
received by the Agent, all dividends and other distributions with respect to
the Newmont Shares to which such holder is entitled with a record date after
the date of such deposit and before the date of transfer of such Newmont Shares
to such holder (in each case less any amounts withheld on account of tax
required to be deducted and withheld therefrom) against presentation and
surrender of the certificates for the Exchangeable Shares held by them in
accordance with the foregoing provisions.

   (3) After Acquisitionco has satisfied its obligations to pay the holders of
the Exchangeable Shares the Liquidation Amount per Exchangeable Share pursuant
to (S)5(1) of these share provisions, such holders shall not be entitled to
share in any further distribution of the assets of Acquisitionco.

6. RETRACTION OF EXCHANGEABLE SHARES BY HOLDER

   (1) A holder of Exchangeable Shares shall be entitled at any time, subject
to the exercise by Callco of the Retraction Call Right and otherwise upon
compliance with, and subject to, the provisions of this (S)6, to require
Acquisitionco to redeem any or all of the Exchangeable Shares registered in the
name of such holder for an amount per share equal to the Current Market Price
of a Newmont Share on the last business day prior to the Retraction Date (the
"RETRACTION PRICE"), which shall be satisfied in full by Acquisitionco
delivering or causing to be delivered to such holder one Newmont Share (which
on issue will be admitted to listing and trading by the NYSE (subject to
official notice of issuance)) for each Exchangeable Share presented and
surrendered by the holder together with, on the designated payment date
therefor, the Dividend Amount. To effect such redemption, the holder shall
present and surrender at the registered office of Acquisitionco or at any
office of the Transfer Agent as may be specified by Acquisitionco by notice to
the holders of Exchangeable Shares the certificate or certificates representing
the Exchangeable Shares which the holder desires to have Acquisitionco redeem,
together with such other documents and instruments as may be required to effect
a transfer of Exchangeable Shares under the CBCA and the Articles of
Acquisitionco and such additional documents, instruments and payments as the
Transfer Agent and Acquisitionco may reasonably require, and together with a
duly executed statement (the "RETRACTION REQUEST") in the form of Schedule A
hereto or in such other form as may be acceptable to Acquisitionco:

   specified therein of the Exchangeable Shares represented by such certificate
   or certificates (the "RETRACTED SHARES") redeemed by Acquisitionco;

   received by Acquisitionco and further provided that, in the event that no
   such business day is specified by the holder in the Retraction Request, the
   Retraction Date shall be deemed to be the 15th business day after the date
   on which the Retraction Request is received by Acquisitionco and subject
   also to (S)6(8); and

      (c) acknowledging the overriding right (the "RETRACTION CALL RIGHT") of
   Callco to purchase all but not less than all the Retracted Shares directly
   from the holder and that the Retraction Request shall be deemed to be a
   revocable offer by the holder to sell the Retracted Shares to Callco in
   accordance with the Retraction Call Right on the terms and conditions set
   out in (S)6(3) hereof.

                                     B-50



   (2) Provided that Callco has not exercised the Retraction Call Right, upon
receipt by Acquisitionco or the Transfer Agent in the manner specified in
(S)6(1) of a certificate or certificates representing the number of Retracted
Shares, together with a Retraction Request, and provided that the Retraction
Request is not revoked by the holder in the manner specified in (S)6(7),
Acquisitionco shall redeem the Retracted Shares effective at the close of
business on the Retraction Date and shall transfer or cause to be issued or
transferred to such holder the Newmont Shares to which such holder is entitled
and shall comply with (S)6(4) hereof. If only a part of the Exchangeable Shares
represented by any certificate is redeemed (or purchased by Callco pursuant to
the Retraction Call Right), a new certificate for the balance of such
Exchangeable Shares shall be issued to the holder at the expense of
Acquisitionco.

   (3) Subject to the provisions of this (S)6, upon receipt by Acquisitionco of
a Retraction Request, Acquisitionco shall immediately notify Callco thereof and
shall provide to Callco a copy of the Retraction Request. In order to exercise
the Retraction Call Right, Callco must notify Acquisitionco of its
determination to do so (the "CALLCO CALL NOTICE") within five business days of
notification to Callco by Acquisitionco of the receipt by Acquisitionco of the
Retraction Request. If Callco does not so notify Acquisitionco within such five
business day period, Acquisitionco will notify the holder as soon as possible
thereafter that Callco will not exercise the Retraction Call Right. If Callco
delivers the Callco Call Notice within such five business day period, and
provided that the Retraction Request is not revoked by the holder in the manner
specified in (S)6(7), the Retraction Request shall thereupon be considered only
to be an offer by the holder to sell the Retracted Shares to Callco in
accordance with the Retraction Call Right. In such event, Acquisitionco shall
not redeem the Retracted Shares and Callco shall purchase from such holder and
such holder shall sell to Callco on the Retraction Date the Retracted Shares
for a purchase price (the "PURCHASE PRICE") per share equal to the Retraction
Price per share, plus, on the designated payment date therefor, to the extent
not paid by Acquisitionco on the designated payment date therefor, any Dividend
Amount. To the extent that Callco pays the Dividend Amount in respect of the
Retracted Shares, Acquisitionco shall no longer be obligated to pay any
declared and unpaid dividends on such Retracted Shares. For the purpose of
completing a purchase pursuant to the Retraction Call Right, on the Retraction
Date, Callco shall transfer or cause to be issued or transferred to the holder
of the Retracted Shares the Newmont Shares to which such holder is entitled.
Provided that Callco has complied with the immediately preceding sentence and
(S)6(4) hereof, the closing of the purchase and sale of the Retracted Shares
pursuant to the Retraction Call Right shall be deemed to have occurred as at
the close of business on the Retraction Date and, for greater certainty, no
redemption by Acquisitionco of such Retracted Shares shall take place on the
Retraction Date. In the event that Callco does not deliver a Callco Call Notice
within such five business day period, and provided that the Retraction Request
is not revoked by the holder in the manner specified in (S)6(7), Acquisitionco
shall redeem the Retracted Shares on the Retraction Date and in the manner
otherwise contemplated in this (S)6.

   (4) Acquisitionco or Callco, as the case may be, shall deliver or cause the
Transfer Agent to deliver to the relevant holder, at the address of the holder
recorded in the register of shareholders of Acquisitionco for the Exchangeable
Shares or at the address specified in the holder's Retraction Request or by
holding for pick-up by the holder at the registered office of Acquisitionco or
at any office of the Transfer Agent as may be specified by Acquisitionco by
notice to the holders of Exchangeable Shares, certificates representing the
Newmont Shares (which shares shall be fully paid and shall be free and clear of
any lien, claim or encumbrance and which on issue will be admitted to listing
and trading by the NYSE (subject to official notice of issuance)) registered in
the name of the holder or in such other name as the holder may request, and, if
applicable and on or before the payment date therefor, a cheque payable at par
at any branch of the bankers of Acquisitionco or Callco, as applicable,
representing the aggregate Dividend Amount, in payment of the Retraction Price
or the Purchase Price, as the case may be, in each case less any amounts
withheld on account of tax required to be deducted and withheld therefrom, and
such delivery of such certificates and cheques on behalf of Acquisitionco or by
Callco, as the case may be, or by the Transfer Agent shall be deemed to be
payment of and shall satisfy and discharge all liability for the Retraction
Price or Purchase Price, as the case may be, to the extent that the same is
represented by such share certificates and cheques (plus any tax deducted and
withheld therefrom and remitted to the proper tax authority).

                                     B-51



   (5) On and after the close of business on the Retraction Date, the holder of
the Retracted Shares shall cease to be a holder of such Retracted Shares and
shall not be entitled to exercise any of the rights of a holder in respect
thereof (including any rights under the Voting and Exchange Trust Agreement),
other than the right to receive the Retraction Price or Purchase Price, as the
case may be, unless upon presentation and surrender of certificates in
accordance with the foregoing provisions, payment of the Retraction Price or
the Purchase Price, as the case may be, shall not be made as provided in
(S)6(4) hereof, in which case the rights of such holder shall remain unaffected
until the Retraction Price or the Purchase Price, as the case may be, has been
paid in the manner hereinbefore provided. On and after the close of business on
the Retraction Date, provided that presentation and surrender of certificates
and payment of the Retraction Price or the Purchase Price, as the case may be,
has been made in accordance with the foregoing provisions, the holder of the
Retracted Shares so redeemed by Acquisitionco or purchased by Callco shall
thereafter be a holder of the Newmont Shares delivered to it.

   (6) Notwithstanding any other provision of this (S)6, Acquisitionco shall
not be obligated to redeem Retracted Shares specified by a holder in a
Retraction Request to the extent that such redemption of Retracted Shares would
be contrary to solvency requirements or other provisions of applicable law. If
Acquisitionco believes that on any Retraction Date it would not be permitted by
any of such provisions to redeem the Retracted Shares tendered for redemption
on such date, and provided that Callco shall not have exercised the Retraction
Call Right with respect to the Retracted Shares, Acquisitionco shall only be
obligated to redeem Retracted Shares specified by a holder in a Retraction
Request to the extent of the maximum number that may be so redeemed (rounded
down to a whole number of shares) as would not be contrary to such provisions
and shall notify the holder and the Trustee at least two business days prior to
the Retraction Date as to the number of Retracted Shares which will not be
redeemed by Acquisitionco. In any case in which the redemption by Acquisitionco
of Retracted Shares would be contrary to solvency requirements or other
provisions of applicable law, Acquisitionco shall redeem Retracted Shares in
accordance with (S)6(2) of these share provisions on a pro rata basis and shall
issue to each holder of Retracted Shares a new certificate, at the expense of
Acquisitionco, representing the Retracted Shares not redeemed by Acquisitionco
pursuant to (S)6(2) hereof. If Acquisitionco would otherwise be obligated to
redeem the Retracted Shares pursuant to (S)6(2) of these share provisions but
is not obligated to do so as a result of solvency requirements or other
provisions of applicable law, Newmont shall, subject to applicable law,
purchase such Retracted Shares from such holder on the Retraction Date or as
soon as practicable thereafter on payment by Newmont to such holder of the
Purchase Price for each such Retracted Share, all as more specifically provided
for in the Voting and Exchange Trust Agreement.

   (7) A holder of Retracted Shares may, by notice in writing given by the
holder to Acquisitionco before the close of business on the business day
immediately preceding the Retraction Date, withdraw its Retraction Request, in
which event such Retraction Request shall be null and void and, for greater
certainty, the revocable offer constituted by the Retraction Request to sell
the Retracted Shares to Callco shall be deemed to have been revoked.

   (8) Notwithstanding any other provision of this (S)6, if:

      (a) exercise of the rights of the holders of the Exchangeable Shares, or
   any of them, to require Acquisitionco to redeem any Exchangeable Shares
   pursuant to this (S)6 on any Retraction Date would require listing
   particulars or any similar document to be issued in order to obtain the
   approval of NYSE to the listing and trading (subject to official notice of
   issuance) of, the Newmont Shares that would be required to be delivered to
   such holders of Exchangeable Shares in connection with the exercise of such
   rights; and

      (b) as a result of (a) above, it would not be practicable
   (notwithstanding the reasonable endeavours of Newmont) to obtain such
   approvals in time to enable all or any of such Newmont Shares to be admitted
   to listing and trading by NYSE (subject to official notice of issuance) when
   so delivered,

that Retraction Date shall, notwithstanding any other date specified or
otherwise deemed to be specified in any relevant Retraction Request, be deemed
for all purposes to be the earlier of (i) the second business day immediately
following the date the approvals referred to in (S)6(8)(a) are obtained, and
(ii) the date which is 30 business days after the date on which the relevant
Retraction Request is received by Acquisitionco, and references in these share
provisions to such Retraction Date shall be construed accordingly.

                                     B-52



7. REDEMPTION OF EXCHANGEABLE SHARES BY ACQUISITIONCO

   (1) Subject to applicable law, and provided Callco has not exercised the
Redemption Call Right, Acquisitionco shall on the Redemption Date redeem all
but not less than all of the then outstanding Exchangeable Shares for an amount
per share (the "REDEMPTION PRICE") equal to the Current Market Price of a
Newmont Share on the last business day prior to the Redemption Date, which
shall be satisfied in full by Acquisitionco causing to be delivered to each
holder of Exchangeable Shares one Newmont Share for each Exchangeable Share
held by such holder, together with an amount equal to the Dividend Amount.

   (2) In any case of a redemption of Exchangeable Shares under this (S)7,
Acquisitionco shall, at least 60 days before the Redemption Date (other than a
Redemption Date established in connection with a Newmont Control Transaction or
an Exchangeable Share Voting Event), send or cause to be sent to each holder of
Exchangeable Shares a notice in writing of the redemption by Acquisitionco or
the purchase by Callco under the Redemption Call Right, as the case may be, of
the Exchangeable Shares held by such holder. In the case of a Redemption Date
established in connection with a Newmont Control Transaction or an Exchangeable
Share Voting Event, the written notice of the redemption by Acquisitionco or
the purchase by Callco under the Redemption Call Right will be sent on or
before the Redemption Date, on as many days prior written notice as may be
determined by the Board of Directors to be reasonably practicable in the
circumstances. In any such case, such notice shall set out the formula for
determining the Redemption Price or the Redemption Call Purchase Price, as the
case may be, the Redemption Date and, if applicable, particulars of the
Redemption Call Right.

   (3) On or after the Redemption Date and provided that the Redemption Call
Right has not been exercised by Callco, Acquisitionco shall pay or cause to be
paid to the holders of the Exchangeable Shares to be redeemed the Redemption
Price for each such Exchangeable Share, upon presentation and surrender at the
registered office of Acquisitionco or at any office of the Transfer Agent as
may be specified by Acquisitionco in such notice of the certificates
representing such Exchangeable Shares, together with such other documents and
instruments as may be required to effect a transfer of Exchangeable Shares
under the CBCA and the Articles of Acquisitionco and such additional documents,
instruments and payments as the Transfer Agent and Acquisitionco may reasonably
require. Payment of the Redemption Price for such Exchangeable Shares shall be
made by transferring or causing to be issued or transferred to each holder the
Newmont Shares to which such holder is entitled and by delivering to such
holder, at the address of such holder recorded in the register of shareholders
of Acquisitionco for the Exchangeable Shares or by holding for pick-up by such
holder at the registered office of Acquisitionco or at any office of the
Transfer Agent as may be specified by Acquisitionco in such notice, on behalf
of Acquisitionco certificates representing Newmont Shares (which shares shall
be fully paid and shall be free and clear of any lien, claim or encumbrance),
and, if applicable, a cheque of Acquisitionco payable at par at any branch of
the bankers of Acquisitionco in payment of the Dividend Amount, in each case
less any amounts withheld on account of tax required to be deducted and
withheld therefrom. On and after the Redemption Date, the holders of the
Exchangeable Shares called for redemption shall cease to be holders of such
Exchangeable Shares and shall not be entitled to exercise any of the rights of
holders in respect thereof (including any rights under the Voting and Exchange
Trust Agreement), other than the right to receive the Redemption Price, unless
payment of the Redemption Price for such Exchangeable Shares shall not be made
upon presentation and surrender of certificates in accordance with the
foregoing provisions, in which case the rights of the holders shall remain
unaffected until the Redemption Price has been paid in the manner hereinbefore
provided. Acquisitionco shall have the right at any time after the sending of
notice of its intention to redeem the Exchangeable Shares as aforesaid to
transfer or cause to be issued or transferred to, and deposited with, the Agent
named in such notice the Redemption Price for the Exchangeable Shares (except
as otherwise provided in this (S)7(3) so called for redemption, or of such of
the said Exchangeable Shares represented by certificates that have not at the
date of such deposit been surrendered by the holders thereof in connection with
such redemption, less any amounts withheld on account of tax required to be
deducted and withheld therefrom, such aggregate Redemption Price to be held by
the Agent as trustee for and on behalf of, and for the use and benefit of, such
holders. Upon the later of such deposit being made and the Redemption Date, the
Exchangeable Shares in respect whereof such deposit shall have been made shall
be redeemed and the rights of the holders thereof after such deposit or
Redemption

                                     B-53



Date, as the case may be, shall be limited to receiving their proportionate
part of the aggregate Redemption Price for such Exchangeable Shares, without
interest, and when received by the Agent, all dividends and other distributions
with respect to the Newmont Shares to which such holder is entitled with a
record date after the later of the date of such deposit and the Redemption Date
and before the date of transfer of such Newmont Shares to such holder (in each
case less any amounts withheld on account of tax required to be deducted and
withheld therefrom), against presentation and surrender of the certificates for
the Exchangeable Shares held by them in accordance with the foregoing
provisions.

8. PURCHASE FOR CANCELLATION

   Subject to applicable law, Acquisitionco may at any time and from time to
time purchase for cancellation all or any part of the Exchangeable Shares.

9. VOTING RIGHTS

   Except as required by applicable law and by (S)10 hereof, the holders of the
Exchangeable Shares shall not be entitled as such to receive notice of or to
attend any meeting of the shareholders of Acquisitionco or to vote at any such
meeting. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the holders of the
Exchangeable Shares shall not have class votes except as required by applicable
law.

10. AMENDMENT AND APPROVAL

   (1) The rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions attaching to the
Exchangeable Shares may be added to, changed or removed only with the approval
of the holders of the Exchangeable Shares given as hereinafter specified.

   (2) Any approval given by the holders of the Exchangeable Shares to add to,
change or remove any right, privilege, restriction or condition attaching to
the Exchangeable Shares or any other matter requiring the approval or consent
of the holders of the Exchangeable Shares in accordance with applicable law
shall be deemed to have been sufficiently given if it shall have been given in
accordance with applicable law, subject to a minimum requirement that such
approval be evidenced by resolution passed by not less than two-thirds of the
votes cast on such resolution at a meeting of holders of Exchangeable Shares
duly called and held at which the holders of at least 10% of the outstanding
Exchangeable Shares at that time are present or represented by proxy; provided
that if at any such meeting the holders of at least 10% of the outstanding
Exchangeable Shares at that time are not present or represented by proxy within
one-half hour after the time appointed for such meeting, then the meeting shall
be adjourned to such date not less than five days thereafter and to such time
and place as may be designated by the Chairman of such meeting. At such
adjourned meeting the holders of Exchangeable Shares present or represented by
proxy thereat may transact the business for which the meeting was originally
called and a resolution passed thereat by the affirmative vote of not less than
two-thirds of the votes cast on such resolution at such meeting shall
constitute the approval or consent of the holders of the Exchangeable Shares.

11. RECIPROCAL CHANGES, ETC. IN RESPECT OF NEWMONT SHARES

   (1) Each holder of an Exchangeable Share acknowledges that the Support
Agreement provides, in part, that so long as any Exchangeable Shares not owned
by Newmont or its affiliates are outstanding, Newmont will not without the
prior approval of Acquisitionco and the prior approval of the holders of the
Exchangeable Shares given in accordance with (S)10(2) of these share provisions:

      (a) issue or distribute Newmont Shares (or securities exchangeable for or
   convertible into Newmont Shares) to the holders of all or substantially all
   of the then outstanding Newmont Shares by way of stock dividend or other
   distribution, other than an issue of Newmont Shares (or securities
   exchangeable for or convertible into Newmont Shares) to holders of Newmont
   Shares (i) who exercise an option to receive dividends in Newmont Shares (or
   securities exchangeable for or convertible into Newmont Shares) in lieu of
   receiving cash dividends, or (ii) pursuant to any dividend reinvestment plan
   or similar arrangement;

                                     B-54



      (b) issue or distribute rights, options or warrants to the holders of all
   or substantially all of the then outstanding Newmont Shares entitling them
   to subscribe for or to purchase Newmont Shares (or securities exchangeable
   for or convertible into Newmont Shares); or

      (c) issue or distribute to the holders of all or substantially all of the
   then outstanding Newmont Shares:

          (i) shares or securities of Newmont of any class other than Newmont
       Shares (other than shares convertible into or exchangeable for Newmont
       Shares);

          (ii) rights, options or warrants other than those referred to in
       (S)11(1)(b) above;

          (iii) evidence of indebtedness of Newmont; or

          (iv) assets of Newmont,

   unless the economic equivalent on a per share basis of such rights, options,
   securities, shares, evidences of indebtedness or other assets is issued or
   distributed simultaneously to holders of the Exchangeable Shares and at
   least 7 days prior written notice thereof is given to the holders of
   Exchangeable Shares; provided that, for greater certainty, the above
   restrictions shall not apply to any securities issued or distributed by
   Newmont in order to give effect to and consummate the transactions
   contemplated by, and in accordance with, the Plan of Arrangement.

   (2) Each holder of an Exchangeable Share acknowledges that the Support
Agreement further provides, in part, that so long as any Exchangeable Shares
not owned by Newmont or its affiliates are outstanding, Newmont will not
without the prior approval of Acquisitionco and the prior approval of the
holders of the Exchangeable Shares given in accordance with (S)10(2) of these
share provisions:

      (a) subdivide, redivide or change the then outstanding Newmont Shares
   into a greater number of Newmont Shares;

      (b) reduce, combine, consolidate or change the then outstanding Newmont
   Shares into a lesser number of Newmont Shares; or

      (c) reclassify or otherwise change the Newmont Shares or effect an
   amalgamation, merger, reorganization or other transaction affecting the
   Newmont Shares,

   unless the same or an economically equivalent change shall simultaneously be
   made to, or in, the rights of the holders of the Exchangeable Shares and at
   least 7 days prior written notice is given to the holders of Exchangeable
   Shares. The Support Agreement further provides, in part, that the aforesaid
   provisions of the Support Agreement shall not be changed without the
   approval of the holders of the Exchangeable Shares given in accordance with
   (S)10(2) of these share provisions.

12. ACTIONS BY ACQUISITIONCO UNDER SUPPORT AGREEMENT

   (1) Acquisitionco will take all such actions and do all such things as shall
be necessary to perform and comply with and to ensure performance and
compliance by Newmont, Callco and Acquisitionco with all provisions of the
Support Agreement applicable to Newmont, Callco and Acquisitionco,
respectively, in accordance with the terms thereof including taking all such
actions and doing all such things as shall be necessary to enforce for the
direct benefit of Acquisitionco all rights and benefits in favour of
Acquisitionco under or pursuant to such agreement.

   (2) Acquisitionco shall not propose, agree to or otherwise give effect to
any amendment to, or waiver or forgiveness of its rights or obligations under,
the Support Agreement without the approval of the holders of the Exchangeable
Shares given in accordance with (S)10(2) of these share provisions other than
such amendments, waivers and/or forgiveness as may be necessary or advisable
for the purposes of:

      (a) adding to the covenants of the other parties to such agreement for
   the protection of Acquisitionco or the holders of the Exchangeable Shares
   thereunder;

                                     B-55



      (b) making such provisions or modifications not inconsistent with such
   agreement as may be necessary or desirable with respect to matters or
   questions arising thereunder which, in the good faith opinion of the Board
   of Directors, it may be expedient to make, provided that the Board of
   Directors shall be of the good faith opinion, after consultation with
   counsel, that such provisions and modifications will not be prejudicial to
   the interests of the holders of the Exchangeable Shares; or

      (c) making such changes in or corrections to such agreement which, on the
   advice of counsel to Acquisitionco, are required for the purpose of curing
   or correcting any ambiguity or defect or inconsistent provision or clerical
   omission or mistake or manifest error contained therein.

13. LEGEND; CALL RIGHTS; WITHHOLDING RIGHTS

   (1) The certificates evidencing the Exchangeable Shares shall contain or
have affixed thereto a legend in form and on terms approved by the Board of
Directors, with respect to the Support Agreement, the provisions of the Plan of
Arrangement relating to the Liquidation Call Right and the Redemption Call
Right, the Voting and Exchange Trust Agreement (including the provisions with
respect to the voting rights and automatic exchange thereunder) and the
Retraction Call Right.

   (2) Each holder of an Exchangeable Share, whether of record or beneficial,
by virtue of becoming and being such a holder shall be deemed to acknowledge
each of the Liquidation Call Right, the Retraction Call Right and the
Redemption Call Right, in each case, in favour of Callco, and the overriding
nature thereof in connection with the liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of
Acquisitionco or any other distribution of the assets of Acquisitionco among
its shareholders for the purpose of winding up its affairs, or the retraction
or redemption of Exchangeable Shares, as the case may be, and to be bound
thereby in favour of Callco as therein provided.

   (3) Acquisitionco, Callco, Newmont and the Transfer Agent shall be entitled
to deduct and withhold from any dividend or consideration otherwise payable to
any holder of Exchangeable Shares such amounts as Acquisitionco, Callco,
Newmont or the Transfer Agent is required to deduct and withhold with respect
to such payment under the INCOME TAX ACT (Canada) or United States tax laws or
any provision of provincial, territorial, state, local or foreign tax law, in
each case, as amended. To the extent that amounts are so withheld, such
withheld amounts shall be treated for all purposes hereof as having been paid
to the holder of the Exchangeable Shares in respect of which such deduction and
withholding was made, provided that such withheld amounts are actually remitted
to the appropriate taxing Agency. To the extent that the amount so required to
be deducted or withheld from any payment to a holder exceeds the cash portion
of the consideration otherwise payable to the holder, Acquisitionco, Callco,
Newmont and the Transfer Agent are hereby authorized to sell or otherwise
dispose of such portion of the consideration as is necessary to provide
sufficient funds to Acquisitionco, Callco, Newmont or the Transfer Agent, as
the case may be, to enable it to comply with such deduction or withholding
requirement and Acquisitionco, Callco, Newmont or the Transfer Agent shall
notify the holder thereof and remit any unapplied balance of the net proceeds
of such sale.

14. NOTICES

   (1) Any notice, request or other communication to be given to Acquisitionco
by a holder of Exchangeable Shares shall be in writing and shall be valid and
effective if given by first class mail (postage prepaid) or by telecopy or by
delivery to the registered office of Acquisitionco and addressed to the
attention of the Secretary of Acquisitionco. Any such notice, request or other
communication, if given by mail, telecopy or delivery, shall only be deemed to
have been given and received upon actual receipt thereof by Acquisitionco.

   (2) Any presentation and surrender by a holder of Exchangeable Shares to
Acquisitionco or the Transfer Agent of certificates representing Exchangeable
Shares in connection with the liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of
Acquisitionco or the retraction or redemption of Exchangeable Shares shall be
made by first class mail (postage prepaid) or by delivery to the registered
office of Acquisitionco or to such office of the Transfer

                                     B-56



Agent as may be specified by Acquisitionco, in each case, addressed to the
attention of the Secretary of Acquisitionco. Any such presentation and
surrender of certificates shall only be deemed to have been made and to be
effective upon actual receipt thereof by Acquisitionco or the Transfer Agent,
as the case may be. Any such presentation and surrender of certificates made by
first class mail (postage prepaid) shall be at the sole risk of the holder
mailing the same.

   (3) Any notice, request or other communication to be given to a holder of
Exchangeable Shares by or on behalf of Acquisitionco shall be in writing and
shall be valid and effective if given by first class mail (postage prepaid) or
by delivery to the address of the holder recorded in the register of
shareholders of Acquisitionco or, in the event of the address of any such
holder not being so recorded, then at the last known address of such holder.
Any such notice, request or other communication, if given by mail, shall be
deemed to have been given and received on the third business day following the
date of mailing and, if given by delivery, shall be deemed to have been given
and received on the date of delivery. Accidental failure or omission to give
any notice, request or other communication to one or more holders of
Exchangeable Shares shall not invalidate or otherwise alter or affect any
action or proceeding to be taken by Acquisitionco pursuant thereto.

   (4) In the event of any interruption of mail service immediately prior to a
scheduled mailing or in the period following a mailing during which delivery
normally would be expected to occur, Newmont intends to make reasonable efforts
to disseminate any notice by other means, such as publication. Except as
otherwise required or permitted by law, if post offices in Canada or the United
States are not open for the deposit of mail, any notice which Newmont or the
Transfer Agent may give or cause to be given under the Arrangement will be
deemed to have been properly given and to have been received by holders of
Exchangeable Shares if (i) it is given to the TSE for dissemination or (ii) it
is published once in the National Edition of The Globe and Mail and in the
daily newspapers of general circulation in each of the French and English
languages in the City of Montreal, provided that if the National Edition of The
Globe and Mail is not being generally circulated, publication thereof will be
made in any other daily newspaper of general circulation published in the City
of Toronto.

   Notwithstanding any other provisions of these share provisions, notices,
other communications and deliveries need not be mailed if Newmont determines
that delivery thereof by mail may be delayed. Persons entitled to any
deliveries (including certificates and cheques) which are not mailed for the
foregoing reason may take delivery thereof at the office of the Transfer Agent
to which the deliveries were made, upon application to the Transfer Agent,
until such time as Newmont has determined that delivery by mail will not longer
be delayed. Newmont will provide notice of any such determination not to mail
made hereunder as soon as reasonably practicable after the making of such
determination and in accordance with this (S)14(4). Such deliveries in such
circumstances will constitute delivery to the persons entitled thereto.

15. DISCLOSURE OF INTERESTS IN EXCHANGEABLE SHARES

   Acquisitionco shall be entitled to require any holder of an Exchangeable
Share or any person who Acquisitionco knows or has reasonable cause to believe
holds any interest whatsoever in an Exchangeable Share to confirm that fact or
to give such details as to whom has an interest in such Exchangeable Share as
would be required (if the Exchangeable Shares were a class of "equity shares"
of Acquisitionco) under (S)101 of the Securities Act or as would be required
under the Articles of Newmont or any laws or regulations, or pursuant to the
rules or regulations of any regulatory Agency if the Exchangeable Shares were
Newmont Shares.

                                  SCHEDULE A

                              RETRACTION REQUEST

[TO BE PRINTED ON EXCHANGEABLE SHARE CERTIFICATES]

To:  o ("ACQUISITIONCO") and o  ("CALLCO") and Newmont Mining Corporation
  ("NEWMONT")

   This notice is given pursuant to (S)6 of the provisions (the "SHARE
PROVISIONS") attaching to the Exchangeable Shares of Acquisitionco represented
by this certificate and all capitalized words and expressions used in this
notice that are defined in the Share Provisions have the meanings ascribed to
such words and expressions in such Share Provisions.

   The undersigned hereby notifies Acquisitionco that, provided that the
Retraction Call Right referred to below has not been exercised, the undersigned
desires to have Acquisitionco redeem in accordance with (S)6 of the Share

                                  SCHEDULE F

                REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF FRANCO-NEVADA

   Franco-Nevada represents and warrants to Newmont as follows (and
acknowledges that Newmont is relying on such representations and warranties in
entering into this agreement and completing the Transactions):

      (a) ORGANIZATION, STANDING AND CORPORATE POWER. Each of Franco-Nevada and
   each of its Subsidiaries is a corporation, partnership or other legal entity
   duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the
   jurisdiction in which it is organized and has the requisite power and
   authority to own its assets and conduct its business as currently owned and
   conducted. Each of Franco-Nevada and each of its Subsidiaries is duly
   qualified or licensed to do business and is in good standing in each
   jurisdiction in which the nature of its business or the ownership or leasing
   of its properties makes such qualification or licensing necessary.
   Franco-Nevada has made available for review by Newmont complete and correct
   copies of its Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws and the certificates of
   incorporation and by-laws or comparable organization documents of the
   Subsidiaries of Franco-Nevada, in each case as amended to the date of this
   agreement. Franco-Nevada is not in violation of any provision of its
   Articles of Incorporation or By-Laws, and no Subsidiary of Franco-Nevada is
   in violation of any provisions of its certificate of incorporation, by-laws
   or comparable organizational documents.

      (b) FRANCO-NEVADA SUBSIDIARIES. (S)(b) of the Disclosure Statement lists
   each Subsidiary of Franco-Nevada and the ownership or interest therein of
   Franco-Nevada. All the outstanding shares of capital stock of each such
   Subsidiary have been validly issued and are fully paid and non-assessable
   and, except as set forth in (S)(b) of the Disclosure Statement, are owned by
   Franco-Nevada, by another Subsidiary of Franco-Nevada or by Franco-Nevada
   and another Subsidiary of Franco-Nevada, free and clear of all pledges,
   claims, liens, charges, mortgages, deeds of trust, net profit interests, net
   smelter returns, royalties, overriding royalty interests, other payments out
   of production, other burdens, security interests and other encumbrances of
   any kind or nature whatsoever held by third parties (collectively, "LIENS").
   Except for the capital stock of the Subsidiaries of Franco-Nevada and except
   for the ownership interests set forth in (S)(b) of the Disclosure Statement,
   Franco-Nevada does not own, directly or indirectly, any capital stock or
   other ownership interest, with a fair market value as of the date of this
   agreement greater than $100,000 in any person.

      (c) CAPITALIZATION. The authorized capital (the "AUTHORIZED CAPITAL") and
   issued capital of Franco-Nevada is as set out in the recitals to this
   agreement. Except as set forth above, there are no shares of capital stock
   or other voting securities of Franco-Nevada issued, reserved for issuance or
   outstanding. Except as set forth in (S)(c) of the Disclosure Statement,
   there are not any bonds, debentures, notes or other indebtedness of
   Franco-Nevada having the right to vote (or convertible into, or exchangeable
   for, securities having the right to vote) on any matters on which
   shareholders of Franco-Nevada must vote. Except as set forth above and
   except as set forth in (S)(c) of the Disclosure Statement, as of the date of
   this agreement, there are not any options, warrants, puts, calls, rights,
   commitments, agreements, arrangements or undertakings of any kind
   (collectively, "OPTIONS") to which Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries
   is a party or by which any of them is bound relating to the issued or
   unissued capital stock of Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries, or
   obligating Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries to issue, transfer,
   grant, sell or pay for or repurchase any shares of capital stock or other
   equity interests in, or securities convertible or exchangeable for any
   capital stock or other equity interests in, Franco-Nevada or any of its
   Subsidiaries or obligating Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries to
   issue, grant, extend or enter into any such Options. All shares of
   Franco-Nevada's capital stock that are subject to issuance as aforesaid,
   upon issuance on the terms and conditions specified in the instrument
   pursuant to which they are issuable, will be duly authorized, validly
   issued, fully paid and non-assessable. The issuance and sale of all of the
   shares of capital stock described in this (S)(c) of Schedule F have been in
   compliance with all Laws. Franco-Nevada has previously provided Newmont with
   a schedule setting forth the names of, and the number of shares of each
   class (including the number of shares issuable upon exercise of
   Franco-Nevada Stock Options and the exercise price and vesting schedule with
   respect thereto) and the number of options held by, all holders of
   Franco-Nevada Stock Options. (S)(c) of the

                                     B-63



   Disclosure Statement sets forth the average exercise price for outstanding
   Franco-Nevada Stock Options. Except as set forth in (S)(c) of the Disclosure
   Statement, Franco-Nevada has not agreed to register any securities under any
   securities Laws or granted registration rights to any person or entity;
   copies of all such agreements have previously been made available to
   Newmont. Except as set forth above and in (S)(c) of the Disclosure
   Statement, as of the date of this agreement, there are not any outstanding
   contractual obligations or other requirements of Franco-Nevada or any of its
   Subsidiaries to repurchase, redeem or otherwise acquire any shares of
   capital stock of Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries, or provide funds
   to or make any investment (in the form of a loan, capital contribution or
   otherwise) in, any Subsidiary of Franco-Nevada or any other person. Without
   limiting the generality of the foregoing, there are no stock appreciation
   rights, phantom equity or similar rights, agreements, arrangements or
   commitments based upon the book value, income or any other attribute of
   Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries.

      (d) AUTHORITY; NON-CONTRAVENTION. Franco-Nevada has all requisite
   corporate power and corporate authority to enter into this agreement and,
   subject to the Franco-Nevada Shareholder Approval, to consummate the
   Transactions and to perform its obligations under this agreement. The Board
   of Directors of Franco-Nevada, by the unanimous vote of its outside
   directors, has approved this agreement and the Transactions and has resolved
   to recommend to Franco-Nevada Shareholders that Franco-Nevada Shareholders
   give the Franco-Nevada Shareholder Approval. The execution and delivery of
   this agreement by Franco-Nevada and the consummation by Franco-Nevada of the
   Transactions have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action on
   the part of Franco-Nevada, subject to the Franco-Nevada Shareholder
   Approval. No other corporate proceedings on the part of Franco-Nevada or any
   of its Subsidiaries are necessary to authorize this agreement and, subject
   to the Franco-Nevada Shareholder Approval, the Transactions. This agreement
   has been duly executed and delivered by Franco-Nevada and constitutes a
   valid and binding obligation of Franco-Nevada, enforceable by Newmont
   against Franco-Nevada and each of its Subsidiaries in accordance with its
   terms, subject to the availability of equitable remedies and the enforcement
   of creditors' rights generally. The execution and delivery of this agreement
   does not, and the consummation of the Transactions and compliance with the
   provisions of this agreement will not, conflict with, or result in any
   violation of, or default (with or without notice or lapse of time, or both)
   under, or give rise to a right of consent, termination, purchase,
   cancellation or acceleration of any obligation or to loss of any property,
   rights or benefits under, or result in the imposition of any additional
   obligation under, or result in the creation of any Lien upon any of the
   properties or assets of Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries under, (i)
   the Articles of Arrangement or By-laws of Franco-Nevada or the comparable
   organization documents of any of its Subsidiaries; (ii) any contract,
   instrument, permit, concession, franchise, license, loan or credit
   agreement, note, bond, mortgage, indenture, lease or other property
   agreement, partnership or joint venture agreement or other legally binding
   agreement, arrangement or understanding whether oral or written (a
   "CONTRACT"), to which Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries is a party or
   by which any of them or their respective properties or assets is bound or
   affected, or (iii) subject to the governmental filings and other matters
   referred to in the following sentence, any Law applicable to Franco-Nevada
   or any of its Subsidiaries or their respective properties or assets. No
   consent, approval, order or authorization of, or registration, declaration
   or filing with, any Agency, is required by or with respect to Franco-Nevada
   or any of its Subsidiaries in connection with the execution and delivery of
   this agreement by Franco-Nevada or the consummation by Franco-Nevada of the
   Transactions, except for (i) the filing with the applicable securities
   regulatory Agencies of a proxy statement relating to the Franco-Nevada
   Special Meeting (as amended or supplemented from time to time, the "PROXY
   STATEMENT"), (ii) any approvals required by the Interim Order and the Final
   Order, (iii) filings with the Director under the CBCA, and filings under the
   INVESTMENT CANADA ACT (Canada), as amended, the COMPETITION ACT (Canada), as
   amended, and the HART-SCOTT-RODINO ANTI-TRUST IMPROVEMENTS ACT OF 1976, as
   amended, and (iv) such other consents, approvals, orders, authorizations,
   registrations, declarations and filings as are set forth in (S)(d) of the
   Disclosure Statement. Each of Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries possesses
   all certificates, franchises, licenses, permits, grants, easements,
   covenants, certificates, orders, authorizations and approvals issued to or
   granted by Agencies or other third parties (collectively, "PERMITS"),
   including pursuant to any Environmental Law, necessary to own, lease and/or
   operate its properties and to conduct its business as such business is
   currently conducted or is

                                     B-64



   expected to be conducted following completion of the Transaction. Except as
   set forth in (S)(d) of the Disclosure Statement, (i) all such Permits are
   validly held by Franco-Nevada or its Subsidiaries, and Franco-Nevada and its
   Subsidiaries have complied in all respects with all terms and conditions
   thereof, (ii) none of such Permits will be subject to suspension,
   modification, revocation or non-renewal as a result of the execution and
   delivery of this agreement or the consummation of the Transactions, and
   (iii) since March 31, 2001, neither Franco-Nevada nor any of its
   Subsidiaries has received any written notice, notice of violation or
   probable violation, notice of revocation, or other written communication
   from or on behalf of any Agency, alleging (A) any violation of such Permit,
   or (B) that Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries requires any Permit
   required for its business as such business is currently conducted, that is
   not currently held by it.

      (e) PUBLICLY FILED DOCUMENTS; UNDISCLOSED LIABILITIES. Franco-Nevada has
   filed all required reports, schedules, forms, statements and other documents
   (including documents incorporated by reference) with the applicable security
   regulatory Agencies since March 31, 1998 (the "PUBLIC DISCLOSURE
   DOCUMENTS"). As of its date, each Public Disclosure Document complied in all
   material respects with the requirements of all applicable securities Laws.
   None of the Public Disclosure Documents, as of their respective dates,
   contained any untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a
   material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make
   the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were
   made, not misleading, except to the extent that such statements have been
   modified or superseded by a later-filed Public Disclosure Document. The
   consolidated financial statements of Franco-Nevada included in the Public
   Disclosure Documents comply as to form in all material respects with
   applicable accounting requirements and the published rules and regulations
   of the applicable securities regulatory Agencies with respect thereto, have
   been prepared in accordance with GAAP applied on a consistent basis during
   the periods involved (except as may be indicated in the notes thereto) and
   fairly present the consolidated financial position of Franco-Nevada as of
   the dates thereof and the consolidated results of its operations and cash
   flows for the periods then ended (subject, in the case of unaudited
   statements, to normal year-end audit adjustments). Except (i) as and to the
   extent disclosed, reflected or reserved against on the balance sheet or the
   notes thereto of Franco-Nevada as of March 31, 2001 included in the Filed
   Franco-Nevada Public Disclosure Documents, (ii) as incurred after the date
   thereof in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice and
   not prohibited by this agreement, or (iii) as set forth in (S)(e) of the
   Disclosure Statement, Franco-Nevada does not have any liabilities or
   obligations of any nature, whether known or unknown, absolute, accrued,
   contingent or otherwise and whether due or to become due, that, individually
   or in the aggregate, have had or would reasonably be expected to have a
   Materially Adverse effect on Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries, taken as a
   whole. Except as set forth in (S)(e) of the Disclosure Statement, none of
   Franco-Nevada or its Subsidiaries is subject to the informational reporting
   requirements of, or required to file any form or other document with, any
   securities regulatory Agency (including any stock exchange).

      (f) INFORMATION SUPPLIED. None of the information supplied or to be
   supplied by Franco-Nevada or its Subsidiaries for inclusion or incorporation
   by reference in the Proxy Statement or any other filings relating to the
   Transactions made by Newmont pursuant to the Securities Act, the Securities
   Exchange Act or Australian Law (collectively, the "NEWMONT FILINGS") will,
   at the date the Proxy Statement is first mailed to Franco-Nevada
   Shareholders or the Newmont Filing is filed, as the case may be, or at the
   time of the Franco-Nevada Special Meeting, contain any untrue statement of a
   material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated
   therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of
   circumstances under which they are made, not misleading. The Proxy Statement
   and Newmont Filings will comply as to form in all material respects with the
   requirements of applicable securities Laws, except that no representation or
   warranty is made by Franco-Nevada with respect to statements made or
   incorporated by reference therein based on information supplied by Newmont
   for inclusion or incorporation by reference in the Proxy Statement or the
   Newmont Filings.

      (g) ABSENCE OF CERTAIN CHANGES OR EVENTS. Except as disclosed in the
   Public Disclosure Documents filed and publicly available prior to the date
   of this agreement (the "FILED FRANCO-NEVADA

                                     B-65



   PUBLIC DISCLOSURE DOCUMENTS"), since March 31, 2001, Franco-Nevada has
   conducted, and caused each of its Subsidiaries to conduct, its business only
   in the ordinary course and:

          (i) there has not been any event, change, effect or development
       (including any decision to implement such a change made by the board of

   including joint venture partners or entities, to acquire mining or other

   are valid and binding obligations of Franco-Nevada or any of its
   Subsidiaries and, to the knowledge of Franco-Nevada, the valid and binding
   obligation of each other party thereto except for such Contracts which if

   refusal under, any such Contract except such violations or defaults under
   such Contracts, which, individually or in the aggregate, would not have a
   Materially Adverse effect on Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries, taken as a

   Contracts continue in full force and effect following the consummation of
   the Transactions.

      (l) TAX MATTERS.

          (i) Franco-Nevada and each of its subsidiaries have timely filed, or

       failure to pay which would not individually or in the aggregate, have a
       Materially Adverse effect on Franco-Nevada. All such Tax Returns are
       true, correct and complete in all material respects. To the best of
       Franco-Nevada's knowledge, no such Tax Return contains any misstatement

       including, without limitation, any sales tax authority, in connection
       with any of the Tax Returns filed or required to be filed, which would,
       individually or in the aggregate, have a Materially Adverse effect on
       Franco-Nevada. Neither Franco-Nevada nor any of its subsidiaries has
       taken any action, or failed to take any action, or has knowledge of any
       fact, agreement, plan or other circumstance that is reasonably likely to
       prevent the Arrangement and the Transactions from constituting a
       transaction described in Section 351 of the Code.

          (iv) No unresolved assessments, reassessments, audits, claims,
       actions, suits, proceedings, or investigations exist or have been
       initiated with regard to any Taxes or Tax Returns of Franco-Nevada or
       its subsidiaries. To the knowledge of Franco-Nevada, no assessment,
       reassessment, audit or investigation by any Agency is underway,
       threatened or imminent with respect to Taxes for which Franco-Nevada or
       any of its subsidiaries may be liable, in whole or in part.

       extension to file corporate income tax returns otherwise due December
       15, 2001 (in respect of taxation years ended March 30, 2001), no
       election, consent for extension, nor any waiver that extends any
       applicable statute of limitations relating to the determination of a Tax
       liability of Franco-Nevada or any of its subsidiaries has been filed or
       entered into and is still effective.

          (vi) Franco-Nevada and each of its subsidiaries have properly

       Compensation premiums) and have paid such amounts due to the appropriate
       authority on a timely basis and in the form required under the
       appropriate legislation.

          (vii) The Franco-Nevada Shares do not constitute "foreign property"
       for the purposes of the ITA.

          (viii) The paid-up capital of the Franco-Nevada Shares is at least
       Cdn$1 billion.

       labour difficulty involving the Business Personnel since March 31, 1999.

          (iii) None of Franco-Nevada or its Subsidiaries is subject to any
       litigation, actual or, to the knowledge of Franco-Nevada, threatened,
       relating to employment or termination of employment of employees or
       independent contractors, other than those claims or litigation as would,
       individually or in the aggregate, not be Materially Adverse to
       Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

          (iv) Franco-Nevada and each of its Subsidiaries has operated in
       accordance with all applicable Laws with respect to employment and
       labour, including employment and labour standards, occupational health
       and safety, employment equity, pay equity, workers' compensation, human
       rights

                                     B-71



       and labour relations and there are no current, pending or, to the
       knowledge of Franco-Nevada, threatened proceedings before any Agency
       with respect to any of the above.

      (p) PENSION AND EMPLOYEE BENEFITS.

       arrangements or practices, whether written or oral, which are maintained
       by Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries, including all Employee
       Benefit Plans and Material Employment Agreements (collectively, the
       "FRANCO-NEVADA PLANS").

          (ii) To Franco-Nevada's knowledge, no step has been taken, no event
       has occurred and no condition or circumstance exists that has resulted,
       or could reasonably be expected to result, in any Franco-Nevada Plan
       being ordered or required to be terminated or wound up in whole or in
       part or having its registration under applicable Laws refused or
       revoked, or being placed under the administration of any trustee or
       receiver or Agency or being required to pay any material Taxes,
       penalties or levies under applicable Laws. To Franco-Nevada's knowledge,
       there are no actions, suits, claims (other than routine claims for
       payment of benefits in the ordinary course), trials, demands,
       investigations, arbitrations or other proceedings which are pending or
       threatened in respect of any of the Franco-Nevada Plans or their assets
       which, individually or in the aggregate, are Materially Adverse to
       Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

          (iii) All of the Franco-Nevada Plans are in compliance in all
       material respects with all applicable Laws and their terms, and all of
       the Franco-Nevada Plans are fully insured or fully funded on a projected
       benefit obligation basis.

          (iv) None of the Franco-Nevada Plans is a Multiemployer Plan nor has
       Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries been obligated to contribute to
       any Multiemployer Plan at any time within the past five years.

          (v) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing with respect to
       each Franco-Nevada Plan:

             (A) Franco-Nevada has delivered or made available to Newmont a
          true, correct and complete copy of: (i) each writing constituting a
          part of such Plan, including all plan documents, employee
          communications, benefit schedules, trust agreements, and insurance
          contracts and other funding vehicles; (ii) the most recent Annual
          Report (Form 5500 Series) and accompanying schedule, if any, (iii)
          the current summary plan description and any material modifications
          thereto, if any (in each case, whether or not required to be
          furnished under ERISA); (iv) the most recent annual financial report,
          if any; (v) the most recent actuarial report, if applicable; and (vi)
          the most recent determination letter from the Internal Revenue
          Service, if any. Franco-Nevada has delivered or made available to
          Newmont a true, complete and correct copy of each Material Employment
          Agreement. Except as specifically provided in the foregoing documents
          delivered or made available to Newmont, there are no amendments to
          any Plan or Material Employment Agreement that have been adopted or
          approved nor has Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries undertaken
          to make any such amendments or to adopt or approve any new Plan or
          Material Employment Agreement.

             (B) (S)(p) of the Disclosure Statement identifies each Plan that
          is intended to be a "qualified plan" within the meaning of (S)401(a)
          of the Code ("QUALIFIED PLANS"). The Internal Revenue Service has
          issued a favorable determination letter with respect to each
          Qualified Plan and the related trust that has not been revoked, and
          there are no circumstances and no events have occurred that could
          adversely affect the qualified status of any Qualified Plan or the
          related trust. (S)(p) of the Disclosure Statement identifies each
          Plan which is intended to meet the requirements of (S)501(c)(9) of
          the Code, and each such plan meets such requirements and provides no
          disqualified benefits (as such term is defined in Code (S)4976(b)).

                                     B-72



             (C) (S)(p) of the Disclosure Statement sets forth a list of all
          Employee Benefit Plans or Employment Agreements under which the
          execution and delivery of this agreement, shareholders approval of
          the Transactions or the consummation of the Transactions could
          (either alone or in conjunction with any other event) (i) result in,
          cause the accelerated vesting, funding or delivery of, or increase
          the amount of value of, any payment or benefit to any employee,
          consultant, officer or director of Franco-Nevada or any of its
          Subsidiaries, or could limit the right of Franco-Nevada or any of its
          Subsidiaries to amend, merge, terminate or receive a reversion of
          assets from any Employee Benefit Plan or related trust or any
          Material Employment Agreement or related trust, or (ii) result in an
          "excess parachute payments" within the meaning of (S)280G of the Code.

             (D) There are no pending or threatened claims (other than claims
          for benefits in the ordinary course), lawsuits or arbitrations which
          have been asserted or instituted, and to Franco-Nevada's knowledge,
          no set of circumstances exists which may reasonably give rise to a
          claim or lawsuit, against the Plans, any fiduciaries thereof with
          respect to their duties to the Plans or the assets of any of the
          trusts under any of the Plans which could reasonably be expected to
          result in any material liability of Franco-Nevada or any of its
          Subsidiaries to the PBGC, the Department of Treasury, the Department
          of Labor, any Multiemployer Plan, any Plan or any participant in a
          Plan.

             (E) Franco-Nevada, its Subsidiaries and each member of their
          respective business enterprises has complied with the WORKER
          ADJUSTMENT AND RETRAINING NOTIFICATION ACT and all similar state,
          local and foreign Laws, so as not to incur any liabilities thereunder.

             (F) All Employee Benefit Plans subject to the Laws of any
          jurisdiction outside of the United States (i) have been maintained in
          accordance with all applicable requirements, (ii) if they are
          intended to qualify for special Tax treatment, meet all requirements
          for such treatment, and (iii) if they are intended to be funded
          and/or book-reserved, are fully funded and/or book-reserved on a
          projected obligation basis, as appropriate, based upon reasonable
          actuarial assumptions.

             (G) Each individual who renders services to Franco-Nevada or any
          of its Subsidiaries who is classified by Franco-Nevada or such
          Subsidiary, as applicable, as having the status of an independent
          contractor or other non-employee status for any purpose (including
          for purposes of taxation and Tax reporting and under Employee Benefit
          Plans) is properly so characterized.

             (H) On or before the date hereof, Franco-Nevada has caused each
          grantor trust providing for funding of amounts payable pursuant to
          any Plans and/or Employment Agreements to be amended to ensure that
          no amounts are required to be contributed thereto as a result of the
          execution and delivery of this agreement, the announcement hereof,
          and/or the announcement or consummation of the Transactions, and to
          ensure that such trusts are at all times revocable, in whole or in
          part, without the consent of the trustees or beneficiaries thereof or
          any third party.

      (q) BOOKS AND RECORDS. The financial books, records and accounts of
   Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries in all material respects, (i) have been
   maintained in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting
   principles on a basis consistent with prior years, (ii) are stated in
   reasonable detail and accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and
   dispositions of the assets of Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries and (iii)
   accurately and fairly reflect the basis for Franco-Nevada consolidated
   financial statements. The corporate minute books of Franco-Nevada and its
   Subsidiaries contain minutes of all meetings and resolutions of the
   directors and shareholders held, and full access thereto has been provided
   to Newmont.

      (r) INSURANCE. Franco-Nevada has made available to Newmont true, correct
   and complete copies of all material policies of insurance to which each of
   Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries are a party or are a beneficiary or named
   insured. Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries maintain insurance coverage with
   reputable insurers in such amounts and covering such risks as are in
   accordance with normal industry practice for companies engaged in businesses
   similar to that of Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries.

                                     B-73



      (s) NEWMONT REPRESENTATIONS. Franco-Nevada has no knowledge that any
   representation and warranty of Newmont set forth in this agreement is not
   true and correct in all material respects, or is untrue in a manner that is
   Materially Adverse to Newmont and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, on and
   as of the date of this agreement.

      (t) LITIGATION. Except as specifically disclosed in (S)(t) of the
   Disclosure Statement, there is no suit, action or proceeding pending or, to
   the knowledge of Franco-Nevada, threatened against Franco-Nevada or any of
   its Subsidiaries that, individually or in the aggregate, if adversely
   determined, would reasonably be expected to have a Materially Adverse effect
   on Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, and there is not
   any judgement, decree, injunction, rule or order of any Agency or arbitrator
   outstanding against Franco-Nevada or any of its Subsidiaries having, or
   which would reasonably be expected to have, any Materially Adverse effect on
   Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole. As of the date of this
   agreement, except as specifically disclosed in (S)(t) of the Disclosure
   Statement, there is no suit, action, proceeding pending or, to the knowledge
   of Franco-Nevada, threatened, against Franco-Nevada or any of its
   Subsidiaries that, individually or in the aggregate, if adversely
   determined, would reasonably be expected to prevent or delay in any material
   respect the consummation of the Transactions.

      (u) DETERMINATION BY THE BOARD AND VOTING REQUIREMENTS. The board of
   directors of Franco-Nevada (after receiving financial advice including the
   Fairness Opinion, legal advice and after considering other factors), by the
   unanimous vote of its outside directors, has determined and resolved at its
   meeting held on November 12, 2001:

          (i) that the entering into of this agreement, the performance by
       Franco-Nevada of its obligations hereunder and the Transactions are in
       the best interests of Franco-Nevada and its shareholders;

          (ii) the Arrangement is fair to Franco-Nevada Shareholders;

          (iii) to approve the Transactions and this agreement;

          (iv) to extend the Separation Time (as defined therein), including
       providing the Rights Agent (as defined in the Franco-Nevada Rights
       Agreement) with notice in writing of such extension, under the
       Franco-Nevada Rights Agreement until after the vote by the Franco-Nevada
       Shareholders on the Arrangement at the Franco-Nevada Special Meeting;

          (v) to recommend that Franco-Nevada Shareholders approve the
       Arrangement; and

          (vi) to recommend that Franco-Nevada Shareholders waive the
       Franco-Nevada Rights Agreement so that neither the entering into nor
       delivery of this agreement, the Arrangement or the other agreements
       contemplated hereby nor the consummation of all or any part of the
       Transactions shall constitute a Flip-in Event (as defined in the
       Franco-Nevada Rights Agreement).

   To the knowledge of Franco-Nevada, after consultation with outside legal
   counsel, no provincial or state take-over statute or similar statute or
   regulation (including Rule 61-501 of the Ontario Securities Commission)
   applies or purports to apply to this agreement or any of the Transactions.

      The approval and adoption of this agreement by the affirmative vote of
   66 2/3% of the votes, attaching to the Franco-Nevada Shares, cast at the
   Franco-Nevada Special Meeting (the "SHAREHOLDER APPROVAL") is the only vote
   of the holders of any class or series of Authorized Capital of Franco-Nevada
   necessary to approve this agreement and the Transactions. For purposes of
   the Shareholder Approval, each outstanding Franco-Nevada Share is entitled
   to one vote.

      (v) BROKERS; SCHEDULE OF FEES AND EXPENSES. Except as set forth in (S)(v)
   of the Disclosure Statement, no broker, investment banker, financial advisor
   or other person is entitled to any broker's, finder's, financial advisor's

   upon arrangements made by or on behalf of Franco-Nevada. Franco-Nevada has
   made available to Newmont true and complete copies of all agreements that
   are referred to in (S)(v) of the Disclosure Statement and all
   indemnification and other agreements related to the engagement of the
   persons so listed.

   of the Financial Advisor dated the date of this agreement, to the effect
   that, as of such date, the consideration to be received pursuant to the
   Transactions by Franco-Nevada Shareholders is fair to the Franco-Nevada
   Shareholders from a financial point of view, a copy of which opinion will be
   promptly delivered to Newmont.

      (x) MSHA, OSHA MATTERS. Franco-Nevada and each of its Subsidiaries is in
   compliance with the requirements of each of the FEDERAL MINE SAFETY AND
   HEALTH ACT OF 1977, as amended, and the regulations promulgated thereunder,
   the OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ACT OF 1970, as amended, and the
   regulations promulgated thereunder and any similar Laws of any foreign,
   state, provincial or local jurisdiction (collectively, the "SAFETY ACTS"),
   except for any non-compliance which could not reasonably be expected to
   have, individually or in the aggregate, a Materially Adverse effect on
   Franco-Nevada and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole. Neither Franco-Nevada
   nor any of its Subsidiaries has received any citation from the Mine Safety
   and Health Administration, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration
   or any other Agency or any inspector setting forth any respect in which the
   facilities or operations of Franco-Nevada and any of its Subsidiaries are
   not in compliance with the Safety Acts, or the regulations under such acts
   which non-compliance has not been corrected or remedied to the satisfaction
   of such Agency or inspector, except in all such cases for any non-compliance
   that could not reasonably be expected to have, individually or in the
   aggregate, a Materially Adverse effect on Franco-Nevada and its
   Subsidiaries, taken as a whole. Since March 31, 2000, Franco-Nevada has had
   no citations issued to it under the Safety Acts.

      (y) RIGHTS AGREEMENT. Franco-Nevada has taken all necessary action and
   executed and delivered all such documents and instruments that are required
   to extend the Separation Time (as defined therein), including providing the
   Rights Agent (as defined in the Franco-Nevada Rights Agreement) with notice
   in writing of such extension, under the Franco-Nevada Rights Agreement until
   after the vote by the Franco-Nevada Shareholders on the Arrangement at the
   Franco-Nevada Special Meeting.

      (z) DISPOSITIONS OF COMPANY PROPERTY. Except as described in the Filed
   Franco-Nevada Public Disclosure Documents or in (S)(z) of the Disclosure
   Statement, since March 31, 2001 neither Franco-Nevada nor any of its
   Subsidiaries has sold or disposed of or ceased to hold or own any personal
   property, real property, any interest or rights with respect to real
   property (including exploration or production rights), any interest in a
   joint venture or other assets of properties of Franco-Nevada or any of its
   Subsidiaries ("FRANCO-NEVADA PROPERTY"), other than sales and dispositions
   of raw materials, obsolete equipment, mine output and other inventories, and
   any interest or rights with respect to real property having an individual
   fair market value of less than $5 million in the aggregate, in each case in
   the ordinary course of business, consistent with past practice. Except as
   set forth in (S)(z) of the Disclosure Statement, no Franco-Nevada Property,
   the fair market value of which on the date of this agreement is greater than
   $5 million in the aggregate, is subject to any pending sale or disposition
   transaction.

      (aa) ABSENCE OF REDUCTION IN RESERVES AND MINERALIZED MATERIAL. There has
   been no material reduction in the aggregate amount of reserves or in the
   aggregate amount of mineralized material of Franco-Nevada and its
   Subsidiaries from the amounts set forth in Franco-Nevada's Annual Report for
   the fiscal year ended March 31, 2001, except for (i) such reductions in
   reserves that have resulted from production in the ordinary course of
   business and (ii) such reductions in mineralized material that have resulted
   from reclassifications of mineralized material as reserves.

                   REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF NEWMONT

   Newmont represents and warrants to Franco-Nevada as follows (and
acknowledges that Franco-Nevada is relying on such representations and
warranties in entering this agreement and completing the Transactions):

      (a) ORGANIZATION, STANDING AND CORPORATE POWER. Each of Newmont and each

   Certificate of Incorporation and the certificates of incorporation or
   comparable organization documents of the Subsidiaries of Newmont, in each
   case as amended to the date of this agreement. Newmont is not in violation

   not any bonds, debentures, notes or other indebtedness of Newmont having the
   right to vote (or convertible into, or exchangeable for, securities having
   the right to vote) on any matters on which shareholders of Newmont must
   vote. Except as set forth above and except as set forth in (S)(c) of
   Newmont's disclosure statement, as of the date of this agreement, there are
   not any Options to which Newmont or any of its Subsidiaries is a party or by
   which any of them is bound relating to the issued or unissued capital stock
   of Newmont or any of its Subsidiaries, or obligating

                                     B-76



   Newmont or any of its Subsidiaries to issue, transfer, grant, sell or pay
   for or repurchase any shares of capital stock or other equity interests in,
   or securities convertible or exchangeable for any capital stock or other
   equity interests in, Newmont or any of its Subsidiaries or obligating
   Newmont or any of its Subsidiaries to issue, grant, extend or enter into any

   issuance as aforesaid, upon issuance on the terms and conditions specified

   authorized, validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable. The issuance and
   sale of all of the shares of capital stock described in this (S)(c) of
   Schedule G have been in compliance with all Laws. Newmont has previously
   provided Franco-Nevada with a schedule setting forth the names of, and the
   number of shares of each class (including the number of shares issuable upon
   exercise of Newmont stock options and the exercise price and vesting
   schedule with respect thereto) and the number of options held by, all
   holders of Newmont stock options. (S)(c) of Newmont's disclosure statement
   sets forth the average exercise price for outstanding Newmont stock options,
   other than options into which options of Battle Mountain Gold Company were
   converted, for which (S)(c) of Newmont's disclosure statement sets forth the
   approximate options outstanding and the option price ranges. Except as set
   forth in (S)(c) of its disclosure statement, Newmont has not agreed to
   register any securities under any securities Laws or granted registration
   rights to any person or entity; copies of all such agreements have
   previously been made available to Franco-Nevada. Except as set forth above
   and in (S)(c) of Newmont's disclosure statement, as of the date of this
   agreement, there are not any outstanding contractual obligations or other
   requirements of Newmont or any of its Subsidiaries to repurchase, redeem or
   otherwise acquire any shares of capital stock of Newmont or any of its
   Subsidiaries, or provide funds to or make any investment (in the form of a
   loan, capital contribution or otherwise) in, any Subsidiary of Newmont or
   any other person. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, there
   are no stock appreciation rights, phantom equity or similar rights,
   agreements, arrangements or commitments based upon the book value, income or
   any other attribute of Newmont or any of its Subsidiaries.

      (d) AUTHORITY; NON-CONTRAVENTION.  Newmont has all requisite corporate
   power and corporate authority to enter into this agreement and to consummate
   the Transactions and to perform its obligations under this agreement. The
   Board of Directors of Newmont has unanimously approved this agreement and
   the Transactions. The execution and delivery of this agreement by Newmont
   and the consummation by Newmont of the Transactions have been duly
   authorized by all necessary corporate action on the part of Newmont. No
   other corporate proceedings on the part of Newmont or any of its
   Subsidiaries are necessary to authorize this agreement and the Transactions.
   This agreement has been duly executed and delivered by Newmont and
   constitutes a valid and binding obligation of Newmont, enforceable by
   Franco-Nevada against Newmont in accordance with its terms, subject to the
   availability of equitable remedies and the enforcement of creditors' rights
   generally. The execution and delivery of this agreement does not, and the
   consummation of the Transactions and compliance with the provisions of this
   agreement will not, conflict with, or result in any violation of, or default
   (with or without notice or lapse of time, or both) under, or give rise to a
   right of consent, termination, purchase, cancellation or acceleration of any
   obligation or to loss of any property, rights or benefits under, or result
   in the imposition of any additional obligation under, or result in the

   of its Subsidiaries under, (i) the Certificate of Incorporation or By-laws
   of Newmont or the comparable organization documents of any of its

                                     B-77



   DOCUMENTS"). As of its date, each Newmont Public Disclosure Document

   material respects with applicable accounting requirements and the published
   rules and regulations of the SEC with respect thereto, have been prepared in
   accordance with GAAP applied on a consistent basis during the periods
   involved (except as may be indicated in the notes thereto) and fairly
   present the consolidated financial position of Newmont as of the dates
   thereof and the consolidated results of its operations and cash flows for
   the periods then ended (subject, in the case of unaudited statements, to
   normal year-end audit adjustments). Except (i) as and to the extent
   disclosed, reflected or reserved against on the balance sheet or the notes
   thereto of Newmont as of December 31, 2000 included in the Filed Newmont
   Public Disclosure Documents, (ii) as incurred after the date thereof in the
   ordinary course of business consistent with past practice and not prohibited
   by this agreement, or (iii) as set forth in (S)(e) of its disclosure
   statement, Newmont does not have any liabilities or obligations of any
   nature, whether known or unknown, absolute, accrued, contingent or otherwise
   and whether due or to become due, that, individually or in the aggregate,
   have had or would reasonably be expected to have a Materially Adverse effect
   on Newmont and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

      (f) INFORMATION SUPPLIED. None of the information supplied or to be
   supplied by Newmont or its Subsidiaries for inclusion or incorporation by
   reference in the Proxy Statement or any Newmont Filings will, at the date
   the Proxy Statement is first mailed to Franco-Nevada Shareholders or the
   Newmont Filing is filed, as the case may be, or at the time of the
   Franco-Nevada Special Meeting, contain any untrue statement of a material
   fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or
   necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of circumstances
   under which they are made, not misleading. The Newmont Filings will comply
   as to form in all material respects with the requirements of applicable
   securities Laws, except that no representation or warranty is made by
   Newmont with respect to statements made or incorporated by reference therein
   based on information supplied by Franco-Nevada or Normandy for inclusion or
   incorporation by reference in the Proxy Statement or the Newmont Filings.

       senior management believes that confirmation of the board of directors
       is probable), which, individually or in the aggregate, has had or would
       reasonably be expected to have a Materially Adverse effect on Newmont
       and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole;

          (ii) there has not been, except for regular annual dividends not in
       excess of $0.12 per Newmont Share, with customary record and payment
       dates, any declaration, setting aside or payment of any dividend or

       disclosure statement.

      (h) RESTRICTIONS ON BUSINESS ACTIVITIES. There is no agreement,
   judgement, injunction, order or decree binding upon Newmont or any of its
   Subsidiaries that has, or could reasonably be expected to have, the effect
   of prohibiting, restricting or impairing any business practice of Newmont or
   any of its Subsidiaries, any acquisition of property by Newmont or any of
   its Subsidiaries or the conduct of business by any of them as currently
   conducted (including following the Arrangement) other than such agreements,
   judgements, injunctions, orders or decrees which are not, individually or in
   the aggregate, Materially Adverse to Newmont and its Subsidiaries, taken as
   a whole.

      (i) TITLE. To the knowledge of Newmont, Newmont has good, sufficient and
   marketable title to its real property interests, except for failures of

   normal industry practice for companies engaged in businesses similar to that
   of Newmont and its Subsidiaries.

      (k) LITIGATION. Except as disclosed in the Filed Newmont Public
   Disclosure Documents and except as set forth in (S)(k) of its disclosure
   statement, there is no suit, action or proceeding pending or, to the
   knowledge of Newmont, threatened against Newmont or any of its Subsidiaries
   that, individually or in the aggregate, would reasonably be expected to have
   a Materially Adverse effect on Newmont and its Subsidiaries, taken as a
   whole, and there is not any judgement, decree, injunction, rule or order of
   any Agency or arbitrator outstanding against Newmont or any of its
   Subsidiaries having, or which would reasonably be expected to have, a
   Materially Adverse effect on Newmont and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole.
   As of the date of this agreement, except as disclosed in the Filed Newmont
   Public Disclosure Documents and except as set forth in (S)(k) of its
   disclosure statement, there is no suit, action or proceeding pending, or, to
   the knowledge of Newmont, threatened, against Newmont or any of its
   Subsidiaries that, individually or in the aggregate, would reasonably be
   expected to prevent or delay in any material respect the consummation of the
   Transactions.

      (l) DETERMINATION BY THE BOARD. The board of directors of Newmont has
   unanimously determined and resolved at its meeting held on November 13, 2001:

          (i) that the entering into of this agreement and the performance by

   commission in connection with the Transactions based upon arrangements made
   by or on behalf of Newmont.

      (n) COMPLIANCE. Except for any conflicts, defaults or violations that
   could not, individually or in the aggregate (taking into account the impact
   of any cross-defaults), reasonably be expected to result in a Materially
   Adverse effect on Newmont and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, Newmont
   has complied with, and is not in conflict with, or in default (including
   cross defaults) under or in violation of any Law applicable to its business
   or operations. As of the Effective Date, each of Newmont and its

                                                               November  , 2001

[     ]
[       ]

Ladies and Gentlemen:

   The undersigned, a holder of common shares (the "FRANCO-NEVADA SHARES") of
Franco-Nevada, a corporation incorporated under the laws of Canada
("FRANCO-NEVADA"), has been advised that as of the date hereof, the undersigned
may be deemed to be an "affiliate" of Franco-Nevada, as the term "affiliate" is
defined for purposes of paragraphs (c) and (d) of Rule 145 of the Rules and
Regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

   The undersigned has been further advised that, pursuant to the terms of the
Arrangement Agreement, dated as of November 14, 2001 (the "ARRANGEMENT
AGREEMENT"), by and between Newmont, a Delaware corporation ("NEWMONT"), and
Franco-Nevada, Newmont would acquire indirectly all of the Franco-Nevada Common
Shares and as a result of the Arrangement (as that term is defined in the
Arrangement Agreement), the undersigned would receive Newmont Shares (as
defined in the Arrangement Agreement) or Exchangeable Shares (as defined in the
Arrangement Agreement and, collectively with the Newmont Shares, the "NEWMONT
SECURITIES") in exchange for Franco-Nevada Shares owned by the undersigned.

   1. The undersigned represents, warrants and covenants that the undersigned:

      A. Has read carefully this letter and discussed applicable limitations
   upon the ability of the undersigned to sell, transfer or otherwise dispose
   of Newmont Securities to the extent the undersigned believes necessary with
   counsel of the undersigned or counsel for Franco-Nevada.

      B. However, the undersigned has also been advised that, because the
   undersigned may be deemed to have been an affiliate of Franco-Nevada at the
   time the Arrangement was submitted for a vote of the stockholders of
   Franco-Nevada and because the distribution by the undersigned of Newmont
   Securities has not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as
   amended (the "SECURITIES ACT"), the undersigned may not sell, transfer or
   otherwise dispose of Newmont Shares and, to the extent applicable,
   Exchangeable Shares issued to the undersigned under the Arrangement unless
   (i) such sale, transfer or other disposition has been registered under the
   Securities Act, (ii) such sale, transfer or other disposition is made in
   conformity with the volume and other limitations of Rule 145 promulgated by
   the Commission under the Securities Act, or (iii) the undersigned delivers
   an opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to Newmont, or a "no-action" or
   interpretive letter of the Commission is furnished to Newmont, stating that,
   such sale, transfer or other disposition is otherwise exempt from
   registration under the Securities Act.

      C. Understands that Newmont is under no obligation to register the sale,
   transfer or other disposition of Newmont Securities by the undersigned or on
   behalf of the undersigned under the Securities Act or to take any other
   action necessary in order to make compliance with an exemption from such
   registration available.

      D. Also understands that Newmont may give stop-transfer instructions to
   its transfer agent with respect to Newmont Securities to enforce the
   restrictions on the undersigned set forth herein and that it reserves the
   right to place on the certificates for Newmont Securities issued to the
   undersigned, or any substitutions therefor, a legend stating in substance:

          The securities represented by this certificate have been issued in a
       transaction to which Rule 145 promulgated under the Securities Act of
       1933 applies and may be sold or otherwise transferred only in compliance
       with the requirements of Rule 145 or pursuant to a registration
       statement under said Act or an exemption from such registration.

                                     B-81



      E. Also understands that unless the transfer by the undersigned of
   Newmont Securities of the undersigned has been registered under the Act or
   is a sale made in conformity with the provisions of Rule 145, Newmont
   reserves the right to put the following legend on the certificates issued to
   transferees of the undersigned:

          The securities represented by this certificate have not been
       registered under the Securities Act of 1933 and were acquired from a
       person who received such shares in a transaction to which Rule 145
       promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933 applies. The securities
       have been acquired by the holder not with a view to, or for resale in
       connection with, any distribution thereof within the meaning of the
       Securities Act of 1933 and may not be sold, pledged or otherwise
       transferred except in accordance with an exemption from the registration
       requirements of the Securities Act of 1933.

      F. Neither the execution of this letter nor any provisions set forth
   herein shall be construed as an admission on the part of the undersigned
   that the undersigned is an affiliate of Franco-Nevada as described in the
   first paragraph of this letter, or as a waiver of any rights the undersigned
   may have to object to any claim that the undersigned is such an affiliate on
   or after the date of this letter.

   2. By Newmont's acceptance of this letter, Newmont hereby agrees with the
undersigned to the extent applicable as follows:

      A. For so long as and to the extent necessary to permit the undersigned
   to sell Newmont Shares and, to the extent applicable, Exchangeable Shares
   pursuant to Rule 145 and, to the extent applicable, Rule 144 under the Act,
   Newmont shall (a) use its reasonable efforts to (i) file, on a timely basis,
   all reports and data required to be filed with the Commission by it pursuant
   to Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act, and (ii) furnish to the
   undersigned upon request a written statement as to whether Newmont has
   complied with such reporting requirements during the 12 months preceding any
   proposed sale of Newmont Shares and, to the extent applicable, Exchangeable
   Shares by the undersigned under Rule 145, and (b) otherwise use its
   reasonable efforts to permit such sales pursuant to Rule 145 and Rule 144.
   Newmont and Franco-Nevada have filed all reports required to be filed with
   the Commission under Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act during the
   preceding 12 months.

      B. It is understood and agreed that certificates with the legend set
   forth in paragraphs 1.D and 1.E above will be substituted by delivery of
   certificates without such legend if (i) one year shall have elapsed from the
   date the undersigned received Newmont Securities under the Arrangement and
   the provisions of Rule 145(d)(2) are then available to the undersigned, (ii)
   two years shall have elapsed from the date the undersigned received Newmont
   Securities under the Arrangement and the provisions of Rule 145(d)(3) are
   then applicable to the undersigned, or (iii) Newmont has received either an
   opinion of counsel, which opinion and counsel shall be reasonably
   satisfactory to it, or a "no-action" or interpretive letter obtained by the
   undersigned from the staff of the Commission, to the effect that the
   restrictions imposed by Rule 144 and Rule 145 under the Securities Act no
   longer apply to the undersigned.

                                          Very truly yours,

                                          _____________________________________

SECTION 2.1 COVENANTS REGARDING EXCHANGEABLE SHARES

   So long as any Exchangeable Shares not owned by Newmont or its affiliates
are outstanding, Newmont will:

      (a) not declare or pay any dividend on the Newmont Shares unless (i)
   Acquisitionco shall (A) on the same day declare or pay, as the case may be,
   an equivalent dividend (as provided for in the Share Provisions) on the
   Exchangeable Shares (an "EQUIVALENT DIVIDEND"), and (B) have sufficient

   enable the due declaration and the due and punctual payment, in accordance
   with applicable law, of any such Equivalent Dividend, or (ii) Acquisitionco

      (b) advise Acquisitionco sufficiently in advance of the declaration by
   Newmont of any dividend on the Newmont Shares and take all such other
   actions as are reasonably necessary, in co-operation with Acquisitionco, to

   date for an Equivalent Dividend on the Exchangeable Shares shall be the same
   as the declaration date, record date and payment date for the corresponding
   dividend on the Newmont Shares, or (ii) the record date and effective date
   for an Equivalent Stock Subdivision shall be the same as the record date and
   payment date for the corresponding stock dividend on the Newmont Shares;

      (c) ensure that the record date for any dividend declared on the Newmont
   Shares is not less than 7 days after the declaration date of such dividend;

      (d) take all such actions and do all such things as are reasonably
   necessary to enable and permit Acquisitionco, in accordance with applicable

   satisfaction of the Liquidation Amount, the Retraction Price or the
   Redemption Price in respect of each issued and outstanding Exchangeable
   Share (other than Exchangeable Shares owned by Newmont or its affiliates)
   upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of Acquisitionco or any
   other distribution of the assets of Acquisitionco among its shareholders for
   the purpose of winding up its affairs, the delivery of a Retraction Request
   by a holder of Exchangeable Shares or a redemption of Exchangeable Shares by

   in accordance with the provisions of (S)5, 6 or 7, as the case may be, of
   the Share Provisions;

      (e) take all such actions and do all such things as are reasonably

   Redemption Call Right, including all such actions and all such things as are
   necessary or desirable to enable and permit Callco or Newmont to cause to be
   delivered Newmont Shares to the holders of Exchangeable Shares in accordance
   with the provisions of the Liquidation Call Right, the Retraction Call Right
   or the Redemption Call Right, as the case may be; and

      (f) except in connection with any event, circumstance or action which
   causes or could cause the occurrence of a Redemption Date, not exercise its
   vote as a shareholder to initiate the voluntary liquidation, dissolution or
   winding-up of Acquisitionco or any other distribution of the assets of
   Acquisitionco among its shareholders for the purpose of winding up its
   affairs, nor take any action or omit to take any action that is designed to
   result in the liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of Acquisitionco or any
   other distribution of the assets of Acquisitionco among its shareholders for
   the purpose of winding up its affairs.

SECTION 2.2 SEGREGATION OF FUNDS

   Newmont will cause Acquisitionco to deposit a sufficient amount of funds in
a separate account of Acquisitionco and segregate a sufficient amount of such

dividends when due and to pay or otherwise satisfy its respective obligations
under (S)5, 6 and 7 of the Share Provisions, as applicable.

SECTION 2.3 RESERVATION OF NEWMONT SHARES

   Newmont hereby represents, warrants and covenants in favour of Acquisitionco
and Callco that Newmont has reserved for issuance and will, at all times while
any Exchangeable Shares (other than Exchangeable Shares held by Newmont or its

rights, out of its authorized and unissued capital stock such number of Newmont
Shares (or other shares or securities into which Newmont Shares may be
reclassified or changed as contemplated by Section 2.7): (a) as is equal to the
sum of (i) the number of Exchangeable Shares issued and outstanding from time
to time and (ii) the number of Exchangeable Shares issuable upon the exercise
of all rights to acquire Exchangeable Shares outstanding from time to time; and
(b) as are now and may hereafter be required to enable and permit Newmont to
meet its obligations under the Voting and Exchange Trust Agreement and under
any other security or commitment pursuant to which Newmont may now or hereafter
be required to issue Newmont Ordinary Shares, to enable and permit Callco or
Newmont to meet its obligations under each of the Liquidation Call Right, the
Retraction Call Right and the Redemption Call Right and to enable and permit
Acquisitionco to meet its obligations hereunder and under the Share Provisions.

SECTION 2.4 NOTIFICATION OF CERTAIN EVENTS

   In order to assist Newmont to comply with its obligations hereunder and to
permit Callco or Newmont to exercise the Liquidation Call Right, the Retraction
Call Right and the Redemption Call Right, Acquisitionco will notify Newmont and
Callco of each of the following events at the time set forth below:

      (a) in the event of any determination by the Board of Directors of
   Acquisitionco to institute voluntary liquidation, dissolution or winding-up
   proceedings with respect to Acquisitionco or to effect any other
   distribution of the assets of Acquisitionco among its shareholders for the
   purpose of winding up its affairs, at least 60 days prior to the proposed
   effective date of such liquidation, dissolution, winding-up or other
   distribution;

      (b) promptly, upon the earlier of receipt by Acquisitionco of notice of

   other distribution of the assets of Acquisitionco among its shareholders for
   the purpose of winding up its affairs;

      (c) immediately, upon receipt by Acquisitionco of a Retraction Request;

      (d) on the same date on which notice of redemption is given to holders of
   Exchangeable Shares, upon the determination of a Redemption Date in
   accordance with the Share Provisions; and

      (e) as soon as practicable upon the issuance by Acquisitionco of any
   Exchangeable Shares or rights to acquire Exchangeable Shares (other than the
   issuance of Exchangeable Shares and rights to acquire Exchangeable Shares
   pursuant to the Arrangement).

SECTION 2.5 DELIVERY OF NEWMONT SHARES TO ACQUISITIONCO AND CALLCO

   In furtherance of its obligations under Section 2.1(d) and Section 2.1(e),
upon notice from Acquisitionco or Callco of any event that requires
Acquisitionco or Callco to cause to be delivered Newmont Shares to any holder
of Exchangeable Shares, Newmont shall forthwith allot, issue and deliver or
cause to be delivered to the relevant holder of Exchangeable Shares as directed
by Acquisitionco or Callco the requisite number of Newmont Shares

                                     B-87



to be allotted to, received by, and issued to or to the order of, the former
holder of the surrendered Exchangeable Shares (but, for the avoidance of doubt,
not to Acquisitionco or Callco). All such Newmont Shares shall be duly
authorized and validly issued as fully paid and shall be free and clear of any
lien, claim or encumbrance. In consideration of the issuance and delivery of
each such Newmont Share, Acquisitionco or Callco, as the case may be, shall
subscribe a cash amount or pay a purchase price equal to the fair market value
of such Newmont Shares.

SECTION 2.6 QUALIFICATION OF NEWMONT SHARES

   If any Newmont Shares (or other shares or securities into which Newmont
Shares may be reclassified or changed as contemplated by Section 2.7) to be
issued and delivered hereunder require registration or qualification with or
approval of or the filing of any document, including any prospectus or similar
document or the taking of any proceeding with or the obtaining of any order,
ruling or consent from any governmental or regulatory authority under any
United States or Canadian federal, state, provincial or territorial securities
or other law or regulation or pursuant to the rules and regulations of any
securities or other regulatory authority in the United States or Canada or the
fulfillment of any other United States or Canadian legal requirement before
such shares (or such other shares or securities) may be issued by Newmont and
delivered by Newmont at the direction of Callco or Acquisitionco, if
applicable, to the holder of surrendered Exchangeable Shares or in order that
such shares (or such other shares or securities) may be freely traded
thereafter (other than any restrictions of general application on transfer by
reason of a holder being a "CONTROL PERSON" for purposes of Canadian federal,
provincial or territorial securities Law or the equivalent thereof under any
United States Laws), Newmont will in good faith expeditiously take all such
actions and do all such things as are reasonably necessary or desirable to
cause such Newmont Shares (or such other shares or securities) to be and remain
duly registered, qualified or approved under United States and/or Canadian law.
Newmont will in good faith expeditiously take all such actions and do all such
things as are reasonably necessary or desirable to cause all Newmont Shares (or
such other shares or securities) to be delivered hereunder to be listed, quoted
or posted for trading on all stock exchanges and quotation systems on which
outstanding Newmont Shares (or such other shares or securities) have been
listed by Newmont and remain listed and are quoted or posted for trading at
such time.

SECTION 2.7 ECONOMIC EQUIVALENCE

   So long as any Exchangeable Shares not owned by Newmont or its affiliates
are outstanding:

      (a) Newmont will not without prior approval of Acquisitionco and the
   prior approval of the holders of the Exchangeable Shares given in accordance
   with (S)10(2) of the Share Provisions:

          (i) issue or distribute Newmont Shares (or securities exchangeable
       for or convertible into or carrying rights to acquire Newmont Shares) to
       the holders of all or substantially all of the then outstanding Newmont
       Shares by way of stock dividend or other distribution, other than an
       issue of Newmont Shares (or securities exchangeable for or convertible
       into or carrying rights to acquire Newmont Shares) to holders of Newmont
       Shares (i) who exercise an option to receive dividends in Newmont Shares
       (or securities exchangeable for or convertible into or carrying rights
       to acquire Newmont Shares) in lieu of receiving cash dividends, or (ii)
       pursuant to any dividend reinvestment plan or similar arrangement; or

          (ii) issue or distribute rights, options or warrants to the holders
       of all or substantially all of the then outstanding Newmont Shares
       entitling them to subscribe for or to purchase Newmont Shares (or
       securities exchangeable for or convertible into or carrying rights to
       acquire Newmont Shares); or

          (iii) issue or distribute to the holders of all or substantially all
       of the then outstanding Newmont Shares (A) shares or securities
       (including evidence of indebtedness) of Newmont of any class (other than
       Newmont Shares or securities convertible into or exchangeable for or
       carrying rights to acquire Newmont Shares), or (B) rights, options,
       warrants or other assets other than those referred to in Section
       2.7(a)(ii),

                                     B-88



   unless in each case the economic equivalent on a per share basis of such
   rights, options, securities, shares, evidences of indebtedness or other
   assets is issued or distributed simultaneously to holders of the
   Exchangeable Shares and at least 7 days prior written notice thereof is
   given to the holders of Exchangeable Shares; provided that, for greater
   certainty, the above restrictions shall not apply to any securities issued
   or distributed by Newmont in order to give effect to and to consummate, is
   in furtherance of or is otherwise in connection with the transactions
   contemplated by, and in accordance with, the Plan of Arrangement.

      (b) Newmont will not without the prior approval of Acquisitionco and the
   prior approval of the holders of the Exchangeable Shares given in accordance
   with (S)10(2) of the Share Provisions:

          (i) subdivide, redivide or change the then outstanding Newmont Shares
       into a greater number of Newmont Shares; or

          (ii) reduce, combine, consolidate or change the then outstanding
       Newmont Shares into a lesser number of Newmont Shares; or

          (iii) reclassify or otherwise change Newmont Shares or effect an
       amalgamation, merger, reorganization or other transaction affecting
       Newmont Shares;

   unless the same or an economically equivalent change shall simultaneously be
   made to, or in the rights of the holders of, the Exchangeable Shares and at
   least seven days prior written notice is given to the holders of
   Exchangeable Shares.

      (c) Newmont will ensure that the record date for any event referred to in
   Section 2.7(a) or Section 2.7(b), or (if no record date is applicable for
   such event) the effective date for any such event, is not less than five
   business days after the date on which such event is declared or announced by
   Newmont (with contemporaneous notification thereof by Newmont to
   Acquisitionco).

      (d) The Board of Directors of Acquisitionco shall determine, acting in
   good faith and in its sole discretion, economic equivalence for the purposes
   of any event referred to in Section 2.7(a) or Section 2.7(b) and each such
   determination shall be conclusive and binding on Newmont. In making each
   such determination, the following factors shall, without excluding other
   factors determined by the Board of Directors of Acquisitionco to be
   relevant, be considered by the Board of Directors of Acquisitionco:

          (i) in the case of any stock dividend or other distribution payable
       in Newmont Shares, the number of such shares issued in proportion to the
       number of Newmont Shares previously outstanding;

          (ii) in the case of the issuance or distribution of any rights,
       options or warrants to subscribe for or purchase Newmont Shares (or
       securities exchangeable for or convertible into or carrying rights to
       acquire Newmont Shares), the relationship between the exercise price of
       each such right, option or warrant and the Current Market Price of a
       Newmont Share;

          (iii) in the case of the issuance or distribution of any other form
       of property (including any shares or securities of Newmont of any class
       other than Newmont Shares, any rights, options or warrants other than
       those referred to in Section 2.7(d)(ii), any evidences of indebtedness
       of Newmont or any assets of Newmont), the relationship between the fair
       market value (as determined by the Board of Directors of Acquisitionco
       in the manner above contemplated) of such property to be issued or
       distributed with respect to each outstanding Newmont Share and the
       Current Market Price of a Newmont Share;

          (iv) in the case of any subdivision, redivision or change of the then
       outstanding Newmont Shares into a greater number of Newmont Shares or
       the reduction, combination, consolidation or change of the then
       outstanding Newmont Shares into a lesser number of Newmont Shares or any
       amalgamation, merger, reorganization or other transaction affecting
       Newmont Shares, the effect thereof upon the then outstanding Newmont
       Shares; and

          (v) in all such cases, the general taxation consequences of the
       relevant event to holders of Exchangeable Shares to the extent that such
       consequences may differ from the taxation consequences to holders of
       Newmont Shares as a result of differences between taxation laws of
       Canada and the

                                     B-89



       United States (except for any differing consequences arising as a result
       of differing marginal taxation rates and without regard to the
       individual circumstances of holders of Exchangeable Shares).

      (e) Acquisitionco agrees that, to the extent required, upon due notice
   from Newmont, Acquisitionco will use its best efforts to take or cause to be
   taken such steps as may be necessary for the purposes of ensuring that
   appropriate dividends are paid or other distributions are made by
   Acquisitionco, or subdivisions, redivisions or changes are made to the
   Exchangeable Shares, in order to implement the required economic equivalence
   with respect to the Newmont Shares and Exchangeable Shares as provided for
   in this Section 2.7.

SECTION 2.8 TENDER OFFERS

   In the event that a tender offer, share exchange offer, issuer bid,
take-over bid or similar transaction with respect to Newmont Shares (an
"OFFER") is proposed by Newmont or is proposed to Newmont or its shareholders
and is recommended by the Board of Directors of Newmont, or is otherwise
effected or to be effected with the consent or approval of the Board of
Directors of Newmont, and the Exchangeable Shares are not redeemed by
Acquisitionco or purchased by Callco or Newmont pursuant to the Redemption Call
Right, Newmont will expeditiously and in good faith take all such actions and
do all such things as are reasonably necessary or desirable to enable and
permit holders of Exchangeable Shares (other than Newmont and its affiliates)
to participate in such Offer to the same extent and on an economically
equivalent basis as the holders of Newmont Shares, without discrimination.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Newmont will expeditiously
and in good faith take all such actions and do all such things as are
reasonably necessary or desirable to ensure that holders of Exchangeable Shares
may participate in each such Offer without being required to retract
Exchangeable Shares as against Acquisitionco (or, if so required, to ensure
that any such retraction, shall be effective only upon, and shall be
conditional upon, the closing of such Offer and only to the extent necessary to
tender or deposit to the Offer). Nothing herein shall affect the rights of
Acquisitionco to redeem (or Callco or Newmont to purchase pursuant to the
Redemption Call Right) Exchangeable Shares, as applicable, in the event of a
Newmont Control Transaction.

SECTION 2.9 OWNERSHIP OF OUTSTANDING SHARES

   Without the prior approval of Acquisitionco and the prior approval of the
holders of the Exchangeable Shares given in accordance with (S)10(2) of the
Share Provisions, Newmont covenants and agrees in favour of Acquisitionco that,
as long as any outstanding Exchangeable Shares are owned by any person other
than Newmont or any of its affiliates, Newmont will be and remain the direct or
indirect beneficial owner of all issued and outstanding voting shares in the
capital of Acquisitionco and Callco.

SECTION 2.10 NEWMONT AND AFFILIATES NOT TO VOTE EXCHANGEABLE SHARES

   Newmont covenants and agrees that it will appoint and cause to be appointed
proxyholders with respect to all Exchangeable Shares held by it and its
affiliates for the sole purpose of attending each meeting of holders of
Exchangeable Shares in order to be counted as part of the quorum for each such
meeting. Newmont further covenants and agrees that it will not, and will cause
its affiliates not to, exercise any voting rights which may be exercisable by
holders of Exchangeable Shares from time to time pursuant to the Share
Provisions or pursuant to the provisions of the CBCA (or any successor or other
corporate statute by which Acquisitionco may in the future be governed) with
respect to any Exchangeable Shares held by it or by its affiliates in respect
of any matter considered at any meeting of holders of Exchangeable Shares.

SECTION 2.11 ORDINARY MARKET PURCHASES

   For certainty, nothing contained in this agreement, including the
obligations of Newmont contained in Section 2.8, shall limit the ability of
Newmont (or any of its subsidiaries including, without limitation, Callco or

                                     B-90



Acquisitionco) to make ordinary market purchases of Newmont Shares in
accordance with applicable laws and regulatory or stock exchange requirements.

SECTION 2.12 STOCK EXCHANGE LISTING

   Newmont covenants and agrees in favour of Acquisitionco that, as long as any
outstanding Exchangeable Shares are owned by any person other than Newmont or
any of its affiliates, Newmont will use its best efforts to maintain a listing
for such Exchangeable Shares on The Toronto Stock Exchange.

SECTION 3.1 CERTAIN REQUIREMENTS IN RESPECT OF COMBINATION, ETC.

   As long as any outstanding Exchangeable Shares are owned by any person other
than Newmont or any of its affiliates, Newmont shall not consummate any
transaction (whether by way of reconstruction, reorganization, consolidation,
arrangement, merger, transfer, sale, lease or otherwise) whereby all or
substantially all of its undertaking, property and assets would become the
property of any other person or, in the case of a merger, of the continuing
corporation resulting therefrom unless, but may do so if:

      (a) such other person or continuing corporation (the "NEWMONT SUCCESSOR")
   by operation of law, becomes, without more, bound by the terms and
   provisions of this agreement or, if not so bound, executes, prior to or
   contemporaneously with the consummation of such transaction, an agreement
   supplemental hereto and such other instruments (if any) as are reasonably
   necessary or advisable to evidence the assumption by the Newmont Successor
   of liability for all moneys payable and property deliverable hereunder and
   the covenant of such Newmont Successor to pay and deliver or cause to be
   delivered the same and its agreement to observe and perform all the
   covenants and obligations of Newmont under this agreement; and

      (b) such transaction shall be upon such terms and conditions as
   substantially to preserve and not to impair in any material respect any of
   the rights, duties, powers and authorities of the other parties hereunder or
   the holders of the Exchangeable Shares.

SECTION 3.2 VESTING OF POWERS IN SUCCESSOR

   Whenever the conditions of Section 3.1 have been duly observed and
performed, the parties, if required by Section 3.1, shall execute and deliver
the supplemental agreement provided for in Section 3.1(a) and thereupon the
Newmont Successor and such other person that may then be the issuer of the
Newmont Shares shall possess and from time to time may exercise each and every
right and power of Newmont under this agreement in the name of Newmont or
otherwise and any act or proceeding by any provision of this agreement required
to be done or performed by the Board of Directors of Newmont or any officers of
Newmont may be done and performed with like force and effect by the directors
or officers of such Newmont Successor.

SECTION 3.3 WHOLLY-OWNED SUBSIDIARIES

   Nothing herein shall be construed as preventing (i) the amalgamation or
merger of any wholly-owned direct or indirect subsidiary of Newmont with or
into Newmont, (ii) the winding-up, liquidation or dissolution of any
wholly-owned direct or indirect subsidiary of Newmont, provided that all of the
assets of such subsidiary are transferred to Newmont or another wholly-owned
direct or indirect subsidiary of Newmont, or (iii) any other distribution of
the assets of any wholly-owned direct or indirect subsidiary of Newmont among
the shareholders of such subsidiary for the purpose of winding up its affairs,
and any such transactions are expressly permitted by this Article 3.

satisfactory to the Trustee's representative, and at the Beneficiary's request,
such representative shall sign and deliver to such Beneficiary (or its
designee) a proxy to exercise personally the Beneficiary Votes as to which such
Beneficiary is otherwise entitled hereunder to direct the vote, if such
Beneficiary either (i) has not previously given the Trustee instructions
pursuant to (S)4.3 in respect of such meeting or (ii) submits to such

held by such Beneficiary. The Automatic Exchange Rights on Liquidation shall
represent an agreement on the terms set out herein between Newmont and the
Trustee (acting on behalf of the Beneficiaries) that Newmont will purchase from
each and every Beneficiary all of the outstanding Exchangeable Shares held by
such Beneficiary on the fifth business day prior to the Liquidation Event
Effective Date. Newmont hereby acknowledges receipt from the Trustee as trustee
for and on behalf of the Beneficiaries of good and valuable consideration (and
the adequacy thereof) for agreeing with the Trustee (acting on behalf of the
Beneficiaries) to be bound by the Automatic Exchange Right and the Automatic
Exchange Rights on Liquidation.

   (2) During the term of the Trust and subject to the terms and conditions of
this agreement, the Trustee shall possess and be vested with full legal
ownership of the Automatic Exchange Right and the Automatic Exchange Rights on
Liquidation and shall be entitled to exercise all of the rights and powers of
an owner with respect to the Automatic Exchange Right and the Automatic
Exchange Rights on Liquidation, provided that the Trustee shall:

      (a) hold the Automatic Exchange Right and the Automatic Exchange Rights
   on Liquidation and the legal title thereto as trustee solely for the use and
   benefit of the Beneficiaries in accordance with the provisions of this
   agreement; and

      (b) except as specifically authorized by this agreement, have no power or
   authority to exercise or otherwise deal in or with the Automatic Exchange
   Right or the Automatic Exchange Rights on Liquidation, and the Trustee shall
   not exercise any such rights for any purpose other than the purposes for
   which the Trust is created pursuant to this agreement.

   (3) The obligations of Newmont to issue Newmont Shares pursuant to the
Automatic Exchange Right or the Automatic Exchange Rights on Liquidation are
subject to all applicable laws and regulatory or stock exchange requirements.

5.2 LEGENDED SHARE CERTIFICATES

   Acquisitionco will cause each certificate representing Exchangeable Shares
to bear an appropriate legend notifying the Beneficiaries of the Automatic
Exchange Right and the Automatic Exchange Rights on Liquidation.

5.3 AUTOMATIC EXCHANGE RIGHT

   (1) The purchase price payable by Newmont for each Exchangeable Share to be
purchased by Newmont under the Automatic Exchange Right shall be an amount per
share equal to (i) the Current Market Price of a Newmont Share on the last
business day prior to the day of closing of the purchase and sale of such
Exchangeable Share under the Automatic Exchange Right, which shall be satisfied
in full by Newmont causing to be delivered to such holder one Newmont Share,
plus (ii) to the extent not paid by Acquisitionco on the designated payment
date therefor, an additional amount equal to and in full satisfaction of the
full amount of all declared and unpaid dividends on each such Exchangeable
Share held by such holder on any dividend record date which occurred prior to
the closing of the purchase and sale. In connection with each exercise of the
Automatic Exchange Right, Newmont shall provide to the Trustee an Officer's
Certificate setting forth the calculation of the purchase price for each
Exchangeable Share. The purchase price for each such Exchangeable Share so
purchased may be satisfied only by Newmont issuing and delivering or causing to
be delivered to the Trustee, on behalf of the relevant Beneficiary, one Newmont
Share and on the applicable payment date a cheque for the balance, if any, of
the purchase price, in each case less any amounts withheld pursuant to (S)5.9.
Upon payment by Newmont of such purchase price the relevant Beneficiary shall
cease to have any right to be paid by Acquisitionco any amount in respect of
declared and unpaid dividends on each such Exchangeable Share.

   (2) Immediately upon the occurrence of an Insolvency Event, the closing of
the transaction of purchase and sale contemplated by the Automatic Exchange
Right shall be deemed to have occurred, and each Beneficiary shall be deemed to
have transferred to Newmont all of the Beneficiary's right, title and interest
in and to such

                                     B-102



Beneficiary's Exchangeable Shares free and clear of any lien, claim or
encumbrance and the related interest in the Trust Estate, any right of each
such Beneficiary to receive declared and unpaid dividends from Acquisitionco
shall be deemed to be satisfied and discharged and each such Beneficiary shall
cease to be a holder of such Exchangeable Shares and Newmont shall issue to the
Beneficiary the Newmont Shares issuable upon the automatic exchange of
Exchangeable Shares for Newmont Shares and on the applicable payment date shall
deliver to the Trustee for delivery to the Beneficiary a cheque for the
balance, if any, of the purchase price for such Exchangeable Shares, without
interest, in each case less any amounts withheld pursuant to (S)5.9.
Concurrently with such Beneficiary ceasing to be a holder of Exchangeable
Shares, the Beneficiary shall become the holder of the Newmont Shares issued
pursuant to the automatic exchange of such Beneficiary's Exchangeable Shares
for Newmont Shares and the certificates held by the Beneficiary previously
representing the Exchangeable Shares exchanged by the Beneficiary with Newmont
pursuant to such automatic exchange shall thereafter be deemed to represent
Newmont Shares issued to the Beneficiary by Newmont pursuant to such automatic
exchange. Upon the request of a Beneficiary and the surrender by the
Beneficiary of Exchangeable Share certificates deemed to represent Newmont
Shares, duly endorsed in blank and accompanied by such instruments of transfer
as Newmont may reasonably require, Newmont shall deliver or cause to be
delivered to the Beneficiary certificates representing the Newmont Shares of
which the Beneficiary is the holder.

5.4 FAILURE TO RETRACT

   Upon the occurrence of an event referred to in paragraph (iv) of the
definition of Insolvency Event, Acquisitionco hereby agrees with the Trustee
and in favour of the Beneficiary promptly to forward or cause to be forwarded
to the Trustee all relevant materials delivered by the Beneficiary to
Acquisitionco or to the transfer agent of the Exchangeable Shares (including a
copy of the retraction request delivered pursuant to (S)6(1) of the Share
Provisions) in connection with such proposed redemption of the Retracted Shares.

5.5 NOTICE OF INSOLVENCY EVENT

   As soon as practicable following the occurrence of an Insolvency Event or
any event that with the giving of notice or the passage of time or both would
be an Insolvency Event, Acquisitionco and Newmont shall give written notice
thereof to the Trustee. As soon as practicable following the receipt of notice
from Acquisitionco and Newmont of the occurrence of an Insolvency Event, or
upon the Trustee becoming aware of an Insolvency Event, the Trustee will mail
to each Beneficiary, at the expense of Newmont (such funds to be received in
advance), a notice of such Insolvency Event in the form provided by Newmont,
which notice shall contain a brief statement of the rights of the Beneficiaries
with respect to the Automatic Exchange Right.

5.6 LISTING OF NEWMONT SHARES

   Newmont covenants that if any Newmont Shares to be issued and delivered
pursuant to the Automatic Exchange Right or the Automatic Exchange Rights on
Liquidation require registration or qualification with or approval of or the
filing of any document, including any prospectus or similar document, or the
taking of any proceeding with or the obtaining of any order, ruling or consent
from any Agency under any United States or Canadian federal, provincial or
territorial law or regulation or pursuant to the rules and regulations of any
Agency or the fulfillment of any other United States or Canadian legal
requirement before such shares may be issued and delivered by Newmont to the
initial holder thereof or in order that such shares may be freely traded
thereafter (other than any restrictions of general application on transfer by
reason of a holder being a "control person" or the equivalent of Newmont for
purposes of Canadian securities Law or any United States equivalent), Newmont
will expeditiously and in good faith take all such actions and do all such
things as are reasonably necessary or desirable to cause such Newmont Shares to
be and remain duly registered, qualified or approved. Newmont will
expeditiously and in good faith take all such actions and do all such things as
are reasonably necessary or desirable to cause all Newmont Shares to be
delivered pursuant to the Automatic Exchange Right or the Automatic Exchange
Rights on Liquidation to be listed, quoted or posted for trading on all stock
exchanges and quotation systems on which issued Newmont Shares have been listed
by Newmont and remain listed and are quoted or posted for trading at such time.

5.7 NEWMONT SHARES

   Newmont hereby represents, warrants and covenants that the Newmont Shares
issuable as described herein will be duly authorized and validly issued as
fully paid and shall be free and clear of any lien, claim or encumbrance.

5.8 AUTOMATIC EXCHANGE ON LIQUIDATION OF NEWMONT

   (1) Newmont will give the Trustee written notice of each of the following
events at the time set forth below:

      (a) in the event of any determination by the board of directors of
   Newmont to institute voluntary liquidation, dissolution or winding-up
   proceedings with respect to Newmont or to effect any other distribution of
   assets of Newmont among its shareholders for the purpose of winding up its
   affairs, at least 60 days prior to the proposed effective date of such
   liquidation, dissolution, winding-up or other distribution; and

      (b) as soon as practicable following the earlier of (A) receipt by
   Newmont of notice of, and (B) Newmont otherwise becoming aware of any
   instituted claim, suit, petition or other proceedings with respect to the
   involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of Newmont or to effect
   any other distribution of assets of Newmont among its shareholders for the
   purpose of winding up its affairs, in each case where Newmont has failed to
   contest in good faith any such proceeding commenced in respect of Newmont
   within 30 days of becoming aware thereof.

   (2) As soon as practicable following receipt by the Trustee from Newmont of
notice of any event (a "LIQUIDATION EVENT") contemplated by (S)5.8(1)(a) or
(S)5.8(1)(b), the Trustee will give notice thereof to the Beneficiaries. Such
notice shall be provided to the Trustee by Newmont and shall include a brief
description of the automatic exchange of Exchangeable Shares for Newmont Shares
provided for in (S)5.8(3).

   (3) In order that the Beneficiaries will be able to participate on a pro
rata basis with the holders of Newmont Shares in the distribution of assets of
Newmont in connection with a Liquidation Event, on the fifth business day prior
to the effective date (the "LIQUIDATION EVENT EFFECTIVE DATE") of a Liquidation
Event, all of the then outstanding Exchangeable Shares shall be automatically
exchanged for Newmont Shares. To effect such automatic exchange, Newmont shall
purchase on the fifth business day prior to the Liquidation Event Effective
Date each Exchangeable Share then outstanding and held by Beneficiaries, and
each Beneficiary shall sell the Exchangeable Shares held by it at such time,
free and clear of any lien, claim or encumbrance, for a purchase price per
share equal to (i) the Current Market Price of a Newmont Share on the fifth
business day prior to the Liquidation Event Effective Date, which shall be
satisfied in full by Newmont issuing to the Beneficiary one Newmont Share, plus
(ii) to the extent not paid by Acquisitionco on the designated payment date
therefor, an additional amount equal to and in full satisfaction of the full
amount of all declared and unpaid dividends on each such Exchangeable Share
held by such holder on any dividend record date which occurred prior to the
date of the exchange. Newmont shall provide the Trustee with an Officer's
Certificate in connection with each automatic exchange setting forth the
calculation of the purchase price for each Exchangeable Share.

   (4) On the fifth business day prior to the Liquidation Event Effective Date,
the closing of the transaction of purchase and sale contemplated by the
automatic exchange of Exchangeable Shares for Newmont Shares shall be deemed to
have occurred, and each Beneficiary shall be deemed to have transferred to
Newmont all of the Beneficiary's right, title and interest in and to such
Beneficiary's Exchangeable Shares free and clear of any lien, claim or
encumbrance and the related interest in the Trust Estate, any right of each
such Beneficiary to receive declared and unpaid dividends from Acquisitionco
shall be deemed to be satisfied and discharged, and each such Beneficiary shall
cease to be a holder of such Exchangeable Shares and Newmont shall issue to the
Beneficiary the Newmont Shares issuable upon the automatic exchange of
Exchangeable Shares for Newmont Shares and on the applicable payment date shall
deliver to the Trustee for delivery to the Beneficiary a cheque for the balance,

if any, of the purchase price for such Exchangeable Shares, without interest,
in each case less any amounts withheld pursuant to (S)5.9. Concurrently with
such Beneficiary ceasing to be a holder of Exchangeable Shares, the Beneficiary
shall become the holder of the Newmont Shares issued pursuant to the automatic
exchange of such Beneficiary's Exchangeable Shares for Newmont Shares and the
certificates held by the Beneficiary previously representing the Exchangeable
Shares exchanged by the Beneficiary with Newmont pursuant to such automatic
exchange shall thereafter be deemed to represent Newmont Shares issued to the
Beneficiary by Newmont pursuant to such automatic exchange. Upon the request of
a Beneficiary and the surrender by the Beneficiary of Exchangeable Share
certificates deemed to represent Newmont Shares, duly endorsed in blank and
accompanied by such instruments of transfer as Newmont may reasonably require,
Newmont shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Beneficiary certificates
representing the Newmont Shares of which the Beneficiary is the holder.

5.9 WITHHOLDING RIGHTS

   Newmont, Acquisitionco and the Trustee shall be entitled to deduct and
withhold from any consideration otherwise payable under this agreement to any
holder of Exchangeable Shares or Newmont Shares such amounts as Newmont,
Acquisitionco or the Trustee is required to deduct and withhold with respect to
such payment under the INCOME TAX ACT (Canada) or United States tax Laws or any
provision of provincial, state, local or foreign tax Law, in each case as
amended or succeeded. The Trustee may act and rely on the advice of counsel
with respect to such matters. To the extent that amounts are so withheld, such
withheld amounts shall be treated for all purposes as having been paid to the
holder of the shares in respect of which such deduction and withholding was
made, provided that such withheld amounts are actually remitted to the
appropriate taxing Agency. To the extent that the amount so required to be
deducted or withheld from any payment to a holder exceeds the cash portion of
the consideration otherwise payable to the holder, Newmont, Acquisitionco and
the Trustee are hereby authorized to sell or otherwise dispose of such portion
of the consideration as is necessary to provide sufficient funds to Newmont,
Acquisitionco or the Trustee, as the case may be, to enable it to comply with
such deduction or withholding requirement and Newmont, Acquisitionco or the
Trustee shall notify the holder thereof and remit to such holder any unapplied
balance of the net proceeds of such sale. Newmont represents and warrants that,
based upon facts currently known to it, it has no current intention, as at the
date of this agreement, to deduct or withhold from any dividend paid to holders
of Exchangeable Shares any amounts under the United States tax laws.

powers, duties and authority not in conflict with any of the provisions of this
agreement as the Trustee, acting in good faith and in the reasonable exercise
of its discretion, may deem necessary, appropriate or desirable to effect the
purpose of the Trust. Any exercise of such discretionary rights, powers, duties
and authorities by the Trustee shall be final, conclusive and binding upon all
persons.

   (3) The Trustee in exercising its rights, powers, duties and authorities

interest in the role of the Trustee as a fiduciary hereunder and the role of
the Trustee in any other capacity. The Trustee shall, within 90 days after it
becomes aware that such material conflict of interest exists, either eliminate
such material conflict of interest or resign in the manner and with the effect
specified in Article 10. If, notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this
(S)7.2, the Trustee has such a material conflict of interest, the validity and
enforceability of this agreement shall not be affected in any manner whatsoever
by reason only of the existence of such material conflict of interest. If the
Trustee contravenes the foregoing provisions of this (S)7.2, any interested
party may apply to the Superior Court of Justice (Ontario) for an order that
the Trustee be replaced as Trustee hereunder.

   The Trustee shall not be required to give any bond or security in respect of
the execution of the trusts, rights, duties, powers and authorities of this
agreement or otherwise in respect of the premises.

7.13 TRUSTEE NOT BOUND TO ACT ON REQUEST

   Except as in this agreement otherwise specifically provided, the Trustee
shall not be bound to act in accordance with any direction or request of
Newmont and/or Acquisitionco or of the directors thereof until a duly
authenticated copy of the instrument or resolution containing such direction or
request shall have been delivered to the Trustee, and the Trustee shall be
empowered to act upon any such copy purporting to be authenticated and believed
by the Trustee to be genuine.

7.14 AUTHORITY TO CARRY ON BUSINESS

   The Trustee represents to Newmont and Acquisitionco that at the date of
execution and delivery by it of this agreement it is authorized to carry on the
business of a trust company in each of the provinces of Canada but if,
notwithstanding the provisions of this (S)7.14, it ceases to be so authorized
to carry on business, the validity and enforceability of this agreement and the
Voting Rights, the Automatic Exchange Right and the Automatic Exchange Rights
on Liquidation shall not be affected in any manner whatsoever by reason only of
such event but the Trustee shall, within 90 days after ceasing to be authorized
to carry on the business of a trust company in any province of Canada, either
become so authorized or resign in the manner and with the effect specified in
Article 10.

7.15 CONFLICTING CLAIMS

   (1) If conflicting claims or demands are made or asserted with respect to
any interest of any Beneficiary in any Exchangeable Shares, including any
disagreement between the heirs, representatives, successors or assigns
succeeding to all or any part of the interest of any Beneficiary in any
Exchangeable Shares, resulting in conflicting claims or demands being made in
connection with such interest, then the Trustee shall be entitled, in its sole
discretion, to refuse to recognize or to comply with any such claims or
demands. In so refusing, the Trustee may elect not to exercise any Voting
Rights, Automatic Exchange Right or Automatic Exchange Rights on Liquidation
subject to such conflicting claims or demands and, in so doing, the Trustee
shall not be or become liable to any person on account of such election or its
failure or refusal to comply with any such conflicting claims or demands. The
Trustee shall be entitled to continue to refrain from acting and to refuse to
act until:

      (a) the rights of all adverse claimants with respect to the Voting
   Rights, Automatic Exchange Right or Automatic Exchange Rights on Liquidation
   subject to such conflicting claims or demands have been adjudicated by a
   final judgement of a court of competent jurisdiction; or

      (b) all differences with respect to the Voting Rights, Automatic Exchange
   Right or Automatic Exchange Rights on Liquidation subject to such
   conflicting claims or demands have been conclusively settled by a valid
   written agreement binding on all such adverse claimants, and the Trustee
   shall have been furnished with an executed copy of such agreement certified
   to be in full force and effect.

   (2) If the Trustee elects to recognize any claim or comply with any demand
made by any such adverse claimant, it may in its discretion require such
claimant to furnish such surety bond or other security satisfactory to the
Trustee as it shall deem appropriate to fully indemnify it as between all
conflicting claims or demands.

7.16 ACCEPTANCE OF TRUST

   The Trustee hereby accepts the Trust created and provided for, by and in
this agreement and agrees to perform the same upon the terms and conditions
herein set forth and to hold all rights, privileges and benefits conferred
hereby and by law in trust for the various persons who shall from time to time
be Beneficiaries, subject to all the terms and conditions herein set forth.

                                   ARTICLE 8

                                 COMPENSATION

8.1 FEES AND EXPENSES OF THE TRUSTEE

   Newmont and Acquisitionco jointly and severally agree to pay the Trustee
reasonable compensation for all of the services rendered by it under this
agreement and will reimburse the Trustee for all reasonable expenses
(including, but not limited to, taxes other than taxes based on the net income
or capital of the Trustee, fees paid to legal counsel and other experts and
advisors and travel expenses) and disbursements, including the cost and expense
of any suit or litigation of any character and any proceedings before any
governmental Agency, reasonably incurred by the Trustee in connection with its
duties under this agreement; provided that Newmont and Acquisitionco shall have
no obligation to reimburse the Trustee for any expenses or disbursements paid,
incurred or suffered by the Trustee in any suit or litigation or any such
proceedings in which the Trustee is determined to have acted in bad faith or
with fraud, negligence, recklessness or wilful misconduct.

                                   ARTICLE 9

                  INDEMNIFICATION AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

9.1 INDEMNIFICATION OF THE TRUSTEE

   (1) Newmont and Acquisitionco jointly and severally agree to indemnify and
hold harmless the Trustee and each of its directors, officers, employees and
agents appointed and acting in accordance with this agreement (collectively,
the "INDEMNIFIED PARTIES") against all claims, losses, damages, reasonable
costs, penalties, fines and reasonable expenses (including reasonable expenses
of the Trustee's legal counsel) which, without fraud, negligence, recklessness,
wilful misconduct or bad faith on the part of such Indemnified Party, may be
paid, incurred or suffered by the Indemnified Party by reason or as a result of
the Trustee's acceptance or administration of the Trust, its compliance with
its duties set forth in this agreement, or any written or oral instruction
delivered to the Trustee by Newmont or Acquisitionco pursuant hereto.

   (2) In no case shall Newmont or Acquisitionco be liable under this indemnity
for any claim against any of the Indemnified Parties unless Newmont and
Acquisitionco shall be notified by the Trustee of the written assertion of a
claim or of any action commenced against the Indemnified Parties, promptly
after any of the Indemnified Parties shall have received any such written
assertion of a claim or shall have been served with a summons or other first
legal process giving information as to the nature and basis of the claim.
Subject to (ii) below, Newmont and Acquisitionco shall be entitled to
participate at their own expense in the defence and, if Newmont and
Acquisitionco so elect at any time after receipt of such notice, either of them
may assume the defence of any suit brought to enforce any such claim. The
Trustee shall have the right to employ separate counsel in any such suit and
participate in the defence thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel
shall be at the expense of the Trustee unless: (i) the employment of such
counsel has been authorized by Newmont or Acquisitionco; or (ii) the named
parties to any such suit include both the Trustee and Newmont or Acquisitionco
and the Trustee shall have been advised by counsel acceptable to Newmont or
Acquisitionco that there may be one or more legal defences available to the
Trustee that are different from or in addition to those available to Newmont or
Acquisitionco and that, in the judgement of such counsel, would present a
conflict of interest were a joint representation to be undertaken (in which
case Newmont and Acquisitionco shall not have the right to assume the defence
of such suit on behalf of the Trustee but shall be liable to pay the reasonable
fees and expenses of counsel for the Trustee). This indemnity shall survive the
termination of the Trust and the resignation or removal of the Trustee.

9.2 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

   The Trustee shall not be held liable for any loss which may occur by reason
of depreciation of the value of any part of the Trust Estate or any loss
incurred on any investment of funds pursuant to this agreement, except to the
extent that such loss is attributable to the fraud, negligence, recklessness,
wilful misconduct or bad faith on the part of the Trustee.

                                     B-111



                                  ARTICLE 10
                               CHANGE OF TRUSTEE

10.1 RESIGNATION

   The Trustee, or any trustee hereafter appointed, may at any time resign by
giving written notice of such resignation to Newmont and Acquisitionco
specifying the date on which it desires to resign, provided that such notice
shall not be given less than thirty (30) days before such desired resignation
date unless Newmont and Acquisitionco otherwise agree and provided further that
such resignation shall not take effect until the date of the appointment of a
successor trustee and the acceptance of such appointment by the successor
trustee. Upon receiving such notice of resignation, Newmont and Acquisitionco
shall promptly appoint a successor trustee, which shall be a corporation
organized and existing under the laws of Canada and authorized to carry on the
business of a trust company in all provinces of Canada, by written instrument
in duplicate, one copy of which shall be delivered to the resigning trustee and
one copy to the successor trustee. Failing the appointment and acceptance of a
successor trustee, a successor trustee may be appointed by order of a court of
competent jurisdiction upon application of one or more of the parties to this
agreement. If the retiring trustee is the party initiating an application for
the appointment of a successor trustee by order of a court of competent
jurisdiction, Newmont and Acquisitionco shall be jointly and severally liable
to reimburse the retiring trustee for its legal costs and expenses in
connection with same.

10.2 REMOVAL

   The Trustee, or any trustee hereafter appointed, may (provided a successor
trustee is appointed) be removed at any time on not less than 30 days' prior
notice by written instrument executed by Newmont and Acquisitionco, in
duplicate, one copy of which shall be delivered to the trustee so removed and
one copy to the successor trustee.

10.3 SUCCESSOR TRUSTEE

   Any successor trustee appointed as provided under this agreement shall
execute, acknowledge and deliver to Newmont and Acquisitionco and to its
predecessor trustee an instrument accepting such appointment. Thereupon the
resignation or removal of the predecessor trustee shall become effective and
such successor trustee, without any further act, deed or conveyance, shall
become vested with all the rights, powers, duties and obligations of its
predecessor under this agreement, with the like effect as if originally named
as trustee in this agreement. However, on the written request of Newmont and
Acquisitionco or of the successor trustee, the trustee ceasing to act shall,
upon payment of any amounts then due to it pursuant to the provisions of this
agreement, execute and deliver an instrument transferring to such successor
trustee all the rights and powers of the trustee so ceasing to act. Upon the
request of any such successor trustee, Newmont, Acquisitionco and such
predecessor trustee shall execute any and all instruments in writing for more
fully and certainly vesting in and confirming to such successor trustee all
such rights and powers.

10.4  NOTICE OF SUCCESSOR TRUSTEE

   Upon acceptance of appointment by a successor trustee as provided herein,
Newmont and Acquisitionco shall cause to be mailed notice of the succession of
such trustee hereunder to each Beneficiary specified in a List. If Newmont or
Acquisitionco shall fail to cause such notice to be mailed within 10 days after
acceptance of appointment by the successor trustee, the successor trustee shall
cause such notice to be mailed at the expense of Newmont and Acquisitionco.

                                  ARTICLE 11

                              NEWMONT SUCCESSORS

11.1 CERTAIN REQUIREMENTS IN RESPECT OF COMBINATION, ETC.

   As long as any outstanding Exchangeable Shares are owned by any person other
than Newmont or any of its affiliates, Newmont shall not consummate any
transaction (whether by way of reconstruction, reorganization, consolidation,
arrangement, merger, transfer, sale, lease or otherwise) whereby all or
substantially all of its undertaking, property and assets would become the
property of any other person or, in the case of a merger, of the continuing
corporation resulting therefrom unless, but may do so if:

                                     B-112



      (a) such other person or continuing corporation (the "Newmont
   Successor"), by operation of law, becomes, without more, bound by the terms
   and provisions of this agreement or, if not so bound, executes, prior to or
   contemporaneously with the consummation of such transaction, a trust
   agreement supplemental hereto and such other instruments (if any) as are
   satisfactory to the Trustee, acting reasonably, and in the opinion of legal
   counsel to the Trustee are reasonably necessary or advisable to evidence the
   assumption by the Newmont Successor of liability for all moneys payable and
   property deliverable hereunder and the covenant of such Newmont Successor to
   pay and deliver or cause to be delivered the same and its agreement to
   observe and perform all the covenants and obligations of Newmont under this
   agreement; and

      (b) such transaction shall, to the satisfaction of the Trustee, acting
   reasonably, and in the opinion of legal counsel to the Trustee, be upon such
   terms and conditions as substantially to preserve and not to impair in any
   material respect any of the rights, duties, powers and authorities of the
   Trustee or of the Beneficiaries hereunder.

11.2 VESTING OF POWERS IN SUCCESSOR

   Whenever the conditions of (S)11.1 have been duly observed and performed,
the Trustee, Newmont Successor and Acquisitionco shall, if required by (S)11.1,
execute and deliver the supplemental trust agreement provided for in Article 12
and thereupon Newmont Successor and such other person that may then be the
issuer of the Newmont Shares shall possess and from time to time may exercise
each and every right and power of Newmont under this agreement in the name of
Newmont or otherwise and any act or proceeding by any provision of this
agreement required to be done or performed by the board of directors of Newmont
or any officers of Newmont may be done and performed with like force and effect
by the directors or officers of such Newmont Successor.

11.3 WHOLLY-OWNED SUBSIDIARIES

   Nothing herein shall be construed as preventing (i) the amalgamation or
merger of any wholly-owned direct or indirect subsidiary of Newmont with or
into Newmont, (ii) the winding-up, liquidation or dissolution of any
wholly-owned direct or indirect subsidiary of Newmont (other than Acquisitionco
or Callco), provided that all of the assets of such subsidiary are transferred
to Newmont or another wholly-owned direct or indirect subsidiary of Newmont, or
(iii) any other distribution of the assets of any wholly-owned direct or
indirect subsidiary of Newmont (other than Acquisitionco or Callco) among the
shareholders of such subsidiary for the purpose of winding up its affairs, and
any such transactions are expressly permitted by this Article 11.

                                  ARTICLE 12

Beneficiaries, amend or modify this agreement for the purposes of:

      (a) adding to the covenants of any or all parties hereto for the
   protection of the Beneficiaries hereunder provided that the board of
   directors of each of Acquisitionco and Newmont shall be of the good faith
   opinion that such additions will not be prejudicial to the rights or
   interests of the Beneficiaries;

                                     B-113



      (b) making such amendments or modifications not inconsistent with this
   agreement as may be necessary or desirable with respect to matters or
   questions which, in the good faith opinion of the board of directors of each
   of Newmont and Acquisitionco and in the opinion of the Trustee, having in
   mind the best interests of the Beneficiaries, it may be expedient to make,
   provided that such boards of directors and the Trustee, acting on the advice
   of counsel, shall be of the opinion that such amendments and modifications
   will not be prejudicial to the interests of the Beneficiaries; or

      (c) making such changes or corrections which, on the advice of counsel to
   Newmont, Acquisitionco and the Trustee, are required for the purpose of
   curing or correcting any ambiguity or defect or inconsistent provision or
   clerical omission or mistake or manifest error.

12.3 MEETING TO CONSIDER AMENDMENTS

   Acquisitionco, at the request of Newmont, shall call a meeting or meetings
of the Beneficiaries for the purpose of considering any proposed amendment or
modification requiring approval pursuant hereto. Any such meeting or meetings
shall be called and held in accordance with the by-laws of Acquisitionco, the
Share Provisions and all applicable laws.

12.4 CHANGES IN CAPITAL OF NEWMONT AND ACQUISITIONCO

   At all times after the occurrence of any event contemplated pursuant to
(S)2.7 or 2.8 of the Support Agreement or otherwise, as a result of which
either Newmont Shares or the Exchangeable Shares or both are in any way
changed, this agreement shall forthwith be amended and modified as necessary in
order that it shall apply with full force and effect, mutatis mutandis, to all
new securities into which Newmont Shares or the Exchangeable Shares or both are
so changed and the parties hereto shall execute and deliver a supplemental
trust agreement giving effect to and evidencing such necessary amendments and
modifications.

   For greater certainty, this agreement, which is entered into in connection
with the issuance of the Exchangeable Shares to shareholders of Franco-Nevada
as part of the acquisition of the shares of Franco-Nevada by Acquisitionco,
shall continue to apply with full force and effect following the amalgamation
of Acquisitionco, Franco-Nevada and others pursuant to the Plan of Agreement.

      (b) making any additions to, deletions from or alterations of the
   provisions of this agreement or the Voting Rights, the Automatic Exchange
   Right or the Automatic Exchange Rights on Liquidation which, in the opinion
   of the Trustee, will not be prejudicial to the interests of the
   Beneficiaries or are, in the opinion of counsel to the Trustee, necessary or
   advisable in order to incorporate, reflect or comply with any legislation
   the provisions of which apply to Newmont, Acquisitionco, the Trustee or this
   agreement; and

      (c) for any other purposes not inconsistent with the provisions of this
   agreement, including to make or evidence any amendment or modification to
   this agreement as contemplated hereby; provided that, in the opinion of the
   Trustee, the rights of the Trustee and Beneficiaries will not be prejudiced
   thereby.

party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid,
