Barrick Announces Early Tender Date Results of Debt Tender Offer and Amendment to Maximum Tender Amount

TORONTO, October 14, 2015 — Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:ABX)(TSX:ABX) (“Barrick” or the “company”) announced today the results as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 13, 2015 (the “Early Tender Date”), of its cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) for specified series of outstanding notes (the “Notes”). The terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are described in an offer to purchase (the “Offer to Purchase”) and the related letter of transmittal (the “Letter of Transmittal”), each dated September 29, 2015.

The Tender Offer

The Tender Offer commenced on September 29, 2015. Barrick, Barrick North America Finance LLC and Barrick (PD) Australia Finance Pty Ltd (together, the “Offerors”) are offering to purchase for cash the series of Notes set out in the table below for an aggregate purchase price (including principal and premium) of up to the Maximum Tender Amount (as defined below and amended hereby), plus accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes from the last applicable interest payment date up to, but not including, the settlement date. The amount of a series of Notes that is purchased in the Tender Offer will be based on the order of priority (the “Acceptance Priority Level”) for such series of Notes as set forth in the table below, with 1 being the highest Acceptance Priority Level and 7 being the lowest Acceptance Priority Level. In addition, the aggregate principal amount relating to the offer to purchase the series of Notes with Acceptance Priority Level 2 (the “Priority 2 Notes”) will be limited to $275,000,000 (such principal amount, the “Priority 2 Tender Cap”). If there are sufficient remaining funds to purchase some, but not all, of the Notes tendered of any series (other than the Priority 2 Notes), the amount of Notes purchased in that series will be subject to proration using the procedure more fully described in the Offer to Purchase. In addition, if Priority 2 Notes are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn such that the aggregate principal amount of such Priority 2 Notes would exceed the Priority 2 Tender Cap, the amount of Priority 2 Notes purchased will be subject to proration using the procedure more fully described in the Offer to Purchase.

The definition of “Maximum Tender Amount” for the Tender Offer is hereby amended to equal $850,000,000.

The following table presents the aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on the Early Tender Date for each series of Notes, as reported by the Depositary.
