Company celebrates milestone while looking toward a bright future

This week, Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM, TSX:NGT) honors Colonel William Boyce Thompson's spirit of exploration on the 100th year since the Company's founding in 1921.

From its early beginnings in mining in California, Newmont grew to become a geographically diverse and diversified mining house headquartered in New York, N.Y. The Company returned its focus to gold in the 1960s with the discovery of Nevada's prolific Carlin Trend. Following international expansion and series of transformational mergers and acquisitions, today, Newmont is the world's leading gold mining company with 12 operating mines and two joint ventures, all in top-tier jurisdictions.

"It's an honor to lead Newmont Corporation at such a pivotal time in our history. This milestone offers us a clear moment in time to celebrate our achievements and reflect as we move into the next 100 years of mining," stated Tom Palmer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Newmont. "Throughout our history, Newmont has been a catalyst for change. With a vibrant history, we have transformed; embracing new jurisdictions and innovative technologies. None of this would have been possible without our people, who have consistently risen to the challenge. I am excited about the strength and stability of our portfolio, the capabilities of our workforce and the opportunities we have in front of us."

A truly global company with more than 14,000 employees around the world at its 12 operating mines, Newmont's organic pipeline is the best in the industry, all underpinned by the Company's clear strategic focus, proven operating model and superior execution. Recognized for its commitment to health and safety, Newmont is an industry leader in environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices. The Company continues to spur change with its climate change targets to reduce carbon emissions by 30% by 2030 and aspirations to be net carbon zero by 2050. With these targets and its culture of superior operational and project execution and focus on delivering sustainable shareholder returns, Newmont looks forward to continuing to deliver on its purpose to create value and improve lives through sustainable and responsible mining.

VIDEO — Mike Larson: Defensive Plays Outshining Risky Assets, Gold is Part of the Mix

Mike Larson July 2022youtu.be

It might not sound exciting, but a defensive investment plan is well-suited to today's markets.

That's according to Mike Larson, senior editor of the Safe Money Report at Weiss Ratings. Speaking to the Investing News Network at the Rule Symposium, he explained why he recommends this mindset.

"I'm still advocating a defensive (strategy) — what I call the 'safe money approach' to investing," he said. "Dividends, stability, boring companies even, if you will. That's what has been doing very well relative to the riskier stuff, and I think it's going to continue to do so for the rest of this year, and heading into 2023."

5 Top Weekly TSX Performers: Wallbridge Mining Rises on Fenelon Assay Results

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was trading at 19,501.18 early last Friday (August 5) morning. It ultimately closed the week higher at 19.619.88.
