Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE:NEM) (“Newmont” or the “Company”) announced its Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.025 per share of common stock, payable on March 26, 2015, to holders of record at the close of business on March 12, 2015. The first quarter 2015 dividend is based on the average London P.M. Fix of $1,201 per ounce for the fourth quarter 2014.

Newmont’s gold price-linked dividend policy includes a quarterly dividend payable based on the average London P.M. Fix. Beginning in March 2015 the London P.M. Fix is expected to be changed to the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) P.M. Gold Price. Following that change, Newmont’s dividend will be based on the LBMA P.M. Gold Price.

The first payout level begins between $1,200 and $1,299 per ounce, with an annual dividend of $0.10 per share or $0.025 per quarter. The second payout is between $1,300 and $1,399 per ounce, with an annual dividend of $0.20 per share or $0.05 per quarter. For each $100 per ounce additional increase in the average realized gold price above $1,300 per ounce, the annual payout increases at a rate of $0.20 per share or $0.05 per quarter.

The declaration and payment of dividends remains at the discretion of the Board of Directors and will depend on the Company’s financial results, cash requirements, future prospects and other factors deemed relevant by the Board.
