President and
Chief Executive Officer, Barrick Gold Corporation

Mark has been President and Chief Executive Officer of Barrick effective January 1, 2019, following the completion of the merger with Randgold Resources.

Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE: GOLD) (TSX: ABX) is a sector-leading gold and copper producer. In July 2019 Barrick combined its gold mines in Nevada, USA, with those of Newmont Corporation in a joint venture, Nevada Gold Mines (NGM), which is majority-owned and operated by Barrick. NGM is the world’s largest gold mining complex.

Barrick owns and operates six Tier One gold mines: Cortez, Carlin and Turquoise Ridge in Nevada, Loulo-Gounkoto in Mali, Kibali in the DRC and Pueblo Viejo in the Dominican Republic. It has mines and projects in 13 countries in North and South America, Africa, Papua New Guinea and Saudi Arabia. Its diversified portfolio is focused on high-margin, long-life assets.

Previously, since its incorporation in 1995, Mark was the Chief Executive Officer of Randgold following his pioneering exploration work in West Africa. He subsequently led Randgold’s growth through the discovery and development of high-quality assets into a major international gold mining business. Mark played a pivotal role in promoting the emergence of a sustainable mining industry in Africa, and has a proven track record of delivering significant shareholder value. During his career, Mark has held board positions at a number of global gold mining companies. He holds a Doctorate in Geology from Natal University in South Africa.

Barrick’s vision is to build the world’s most valued gold company by owning the best assets, managed by the best people to deliver the best returns for all stakeholders.
