1 Corporate Responsibility At Barrick, corporate responsibility is fundamental to our business strategy and defines who we are as a company. We believe our commitment to responsible mining is the right way to operate and vital to achieving our business objectives. Our priority is to deliver superior returns to our shareholders and at the same time create value for the communities and countries where we operate. Around the world, the economic, social and political context of the mining industry continues to evolve at a rapid pace, bringing with it changing risks and heightened expectations. Barrick s approach to corporate responsibility helps us identify and manage emerging risks to ensure we can continue to create value for our investors and stakeholders. We do this by conducting our activities to high operational, social, environmental and safety standards and by developing respectful and collaborative relationships with communities, governments, civil society and others, wherever we operate. We recognize that our ongoing success is tied to the success and stability of our host communities, and to our reputation as a responsible partner in resource development. In all locations, we work diligently to manage the impacts of our operations, provide a safe workplace for our employees, and ensure that communities and society derive long-term benefits from our mining activities. 20 Barrick Gold Corporation Annual Report 2012

2 Corporate responsibility is an integral part of our global business strategy. We create value for our shareholders by operating to high standards and earning broad support from our host communities, governments and stakeholders. This approach helps to manage emerging risks and maintain our position as an industry leader. Kelvin Dushnisky, Senior Executive Vice President For the fifth consecutive year, Barrick was named a global leader in corporate responsibility by the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index. Barrick was also ranked among the top 100 companies in the world by the NASDAQ Global Sustainability Index. In Canada, Barrick was named a Carbon Disclosure Leader and ranked first in a sustainability ranking of the Canadian mining industry by Corporate Knights magazine. More recently, Corporate Knights included Barrick in its Global 100 listing of the world s most sustainable companies. This approach helps us sustain broad support for our operations. As a result, we are able to develop a quality portfolio of assets that generates strong returns for our shareholders. Economic and Community Development Barrick s operations are a powerful engine of economic development and can drive positive social change. Our operations contribute billions of dollars annually to local and national economies in the form of wages, taxes and royalties, procurement of goods and services and community investments. In 2011 alone (the most recent year for which figures are available) these contributions totaled approximately $13 billion. Through local hiring and purchasing, we seek to maximize the benefits of our operations in ways that are good for the community and good for our business. The issues facing our host communities are diverse and often complex. In developing countries, where many new deposits are located, poverty, limited infrastructure and services, and a lack of educa tional opportunities are a reality. To help our host communities address these challenges, we work with them to invest in the right development initiatives that reflect local priorities. These initiatives Barrick Gold Corporation Annual Report

Barrick is partnering with Communities in Schools to fund programming at two Nevada middle schools that will help at-risk students succeed in the classroom and stay in school. help to foster longer-term socio-economic development and contribute to greater stability where we operate. Investing in Communities Barrick invests in every community where we operate. Some examples of the numerous initiatives we are supporting are highlighted below: IN CHILE Barrick helped 125 families move into new homes as part of an initiative aimed at alleviating poverty in Chile s Atacama Region. Barrick s partners Barrick partnered with A Roof for Chile and the Chilean government to enable 125 Chilean families living in poverty to become homeowners. Pictured above, the families outside their new homes. in the program were A Roof for Chile, a nongovernmental organization (NGO) dedicated to eradicating slums, and the Chilean Ministry of Housing. In the Dominican Republic The company has invested in numerous community projects around the Pueblo Viejo mine to improve health care, housing, infrastructure and literacy. Additional funding has been allocated to conduct the clean-up of a former mining operation and remediate its impacts outside the current Pueblo Viejo mine site, helping to improve the local living environment. In Zambia Barrick invested in a wide range of sustainable development initiatives in These included funding for infra structure, such as schools and health centers, literacy and agricultural programs, community sports and recreation, and an initiative to provide microcredit and small business loans to women. In Argentina At the end of 2012, Barrick s operations in Argentina generated employment for a total of 15,800 people, including direct employees and third-party contractors. The company is providing skills training programs, purchasing from local suppliers and investing in host communities. These investments in agribusinesses, health, tourism, and internet connectivity further leverage the positive socio-economic impact of our business. In the United States A long-time supporter of education at all levels in Nevada, Barrick recently signed a four-year sponsorship agreement with the NGO Communities in Schools that is helping at-risk students at two Nevada middle schools stay in school and succeed academically. 22 Barrick Gold Corporation Annual Report 2012

4 The Alto Chicama Commitment is an initiative involving NGOs and governments working with Barrick on sustainable development projects in rural northern Peru. 100% Barrick sites that have a working grievance mechanism in place. Relationship-Building Our goal is to build strong relationships with a broad range of stakeholders, including governments, NGOs, civil society and others. By working together, we are better able to address the issues facing our host communities and countries and achieve more sustainable outcomes, while continuously improving our performance. Some examples of our efforts in 2012 are provided below: CSR Advisory BOARD: Barrick established an external CSR Advisory Board in 2012 to provide advice and guidance to the company s senior leadership team on our social and environmental performance. The inaugural Board met twice over the course of the year and included five highly distinguished individuals Aron Cramer, Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Robert Fowler, Edward Liebow, and Gare Smith as well as Professor John Ruggie, who served as a Special Consultant to the Advisory Board. This third-party feedback and counsel is one of the many ways we are working to improve our performance and deliver on our commitment to mining responsibly. Communities: In 2012, Barrick began implementing its Community Relations Management System (CRMS) at all of its mines worldwide. The CRMS sets minimum performance requirements that are aligned with international best practice to ensure community relations activities are carried out in a systematic and professional manner. Grievance mechanisms were one of the priorities for implementation in 2012, which provide local stakeholders with an accessible, transparent mechanism to voice their concerns to the company. In 2012, Barrick s inaugural CSR Advisory Board included, from left to right, Ed Liebow, Gare Smith, Aron Cramer, Elizabeth Dowdeswell, John Ruggie (Special Consultant to the Advisory Board) and Robert Fowler. NGOs: Barrick unveiled the Alto Chicama Commitment, an initiative involving NGOs and governments working together with Barrick on sustainable development projects in northern Peru. This collaborative model, which follows on the success of the Atacama Commitment in Chile, features alliances with such respected NGOs as CARE and World Vision. Government Relations Barrick s government relations program is critical to achieving our business goals and is a significant strength for the company in managing our operations and the political risk inherent in complex jurisdictions. We ensure that we are trusted partners with all levels of government where we have Barrick Gold Corporation Annual Report

We build and maintain productive relationships with regulators and public policy makers that underscore our role as a responsible operator. We conduct our activities in a transparent way and commit to rigorous implementation of the standards set out by our home and host countries. Our collaborative approach to working with governments helps us to secure necessary approvals and stability agreements, negotiate permit requirements and supports project financing. As a Canadian multinational company, we endeavor to ensure our investments are protected through multilateral and bilateral investment and free trade agreements and advocate for the creation of such The First Lady of Zambia, Dr. Christine Kaseba (center), celebrates International Women s Day at the Lumwana mine. where none exists. Finally, we work closely with our international and domestic peers through the World Gold Council, the Inter national Council on Mining and Metals, the Mining Association of Canada, the National Mining Association of the United States, and other national associations in countries where we operate. Through these associations, we advocate for best practices, participate in the creation of industry standards, communicate and document the economic and social benefits of resource development to host countries, and collaborate on managing collective risks. Environmental Responsibility In the mining industry today, there is a stronger focus on environmental responsibility than ever before. From exploration to reclamation, we are working to identify, control and mitigate the impacts of our activities on land, air and water. Our programs that lead to energy savings and reduce water consumption and emissions keep us competitive and protect our ability to operate. In 2012, Barrick completed implementation of its Environmental Management System (EMS) at all operations, which is designed to improve environmental performance across the company. Barrick s EMS is aligned with high international standards, including ISO and the International Council on Mining and Metals Framework for Sustainable Development. All North American operations and business units and South American operations are now ISO certified, with further certifications achieved or underway in 24 Barrick Gold Corporation Annual Report 2012

6 18% Reduction in Total Reportable Injury Frequency Rate Barrick s Environmental Management System is aligned with ISO Australia Pacific. Our most recent operation to achieve certification is the Porgera Joint Venture in Papua New Guinea. We recognize the risk that climate change poses to society and to our long-term success. To mitigate these risks, we set energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions targets that lead to improvements against business as usual. Our focus is to improve processes across the organization at mine sites and in office settings. Barrick is also continuing its efforts to use more renewable energy, building on the success of our Punta Colorada wind farm in Chile and our solar farm in Nevada. All Barrick mines reuse water, and we continually seek new ways to reduce the amount of water used for mining activities. Meeting our Responsibility to our Employees Barrick s reputation as a safe operator reflects our values and makes us an employer of choice. Our Safety and Health Policy outlines the company s goal of a zero-incident work environment to achieve our safety vision, which is Every person going home safe and healthy every day. The Barrick Safety and Health Management System is our framework to reach that objective. During 2012, Barrick reduced its Total Reportable Injury Frequency Rate to 0.76, an 18 percent reduction from 0.92 achieved in Across the company, more diligent implementation of safety standards is making a difference on the front line. Ongoing installation of in-vehicle driver mentoring systems is helping us coach drivers and reduce light vehicle incidents. Barrick has also developed a management standard to prevent fatigue-related incidents, which is now being piloted at several sites. Barrick will continue to increase management presence in the field, focusing on compliance with standards related to critical risks. In addition, the company has implemented a rigorous approach to investigate near miss incidents, engaging in specialized training and analysis. The involvement of leaders in these processes promotes quality investigations and leads to better corrective actions and more diligent follow up. Through these actions, we continue to create a safety culture at Barrick that is fundamental to how we work every day. Barrick maintains emergency response teams at all its sites around the world. These highly trained profession als are the first responders to any mine emergency, and often assist communities in times of need. Barrick Gold Corporation Annual Report
