Goodmans acted as Canadian counsel to Newmont Mining Corporation in connection with the acquisition from AngloGold Ashanti Australia Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of AngloGold Ashanti Ltd., of its 33.33% joint venture interest in the Boddington project in Western Australia for approximately US$1.1 billion. With this acquisition, Newmont now owns 100% of the Boddington project, the largest gold project in Australia.

Citigroup Global Markets Inc and J.P. Morgan Securities Inc. were the joint book-runners for the Offerings, and BMO Capital Markets was the lead manager for the offerings.
