Newmont Reached a Preliminary Agreement with Peñasquito Mine’s Union

Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM, TSX: NGT) confirms it has reached a preliminary agreement with the National Union of Mine, Metal, and Allied Workers of the Mexican Republic (the Union) aiming to end the strike initiated by the Union on June 7, 2023 at Minera Peñasquito in the Mexican state of Zacatecas.

The preliminary agreement was ratified by the General Assembly of the Union on October 5, 2023.

This preliminary agreement is intended to be formalized into a definitive agreement, which the parties will have to agree, approve, sign, and file with the Federal Labor Tribunal for Collective Affairs in Mexico City for final approval.

This process is expected to conclude in the coming days, which would bring the strike to an end and enable the Company to start the execution of the return to work plan to ensure a safe restart of operations.
