            On November 14, 2001, Newmont Mining Corporation, a Delaware
corporation ("Newmont"), Franco-Nevada Mining Corporation Limited, a Canadian
corporation ("Franco-Nevada"), and Normandy Mining Limited, an Australian
corporation ("Normandy"), announced transactions that provide for Newmont to
acquire Normandy and Franco-Nevada. These transactions have been approved and
recommended by the board of directors of all three companies.

            Newmont and Franco-Nevada entered into an Arrangement Agreement,
dated as of November 14, 2001, pursuant to which Franco-Nevada common
shareholders would receive 0.8 of a share of Newmont common stock (or Canadian
exchangeable shares, exchangeable for Newmont common stock) for each share of
Franco-Nevada common stock. Newmont also entered into agreements with Seymour
Schulich, Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Franco-Nevada, and Pierre
Lassonde, President, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Director of Franco-Nevada,
pursuant to which both individuals committed to vote their Franco-Nevada common
shares in favor of Newmont's acquisition of Franco-Nevada and not to dispose of
certain of the Newmont or exchangeable shares received by them for three years
following the consummation of the transactions.

            Newmont and Normandy entered into a Deed of Undertaking, dated as of
November 14, 2001, in connection with Newmont's intended recommended off-market
bid of 0.0385 of a share of Newmont common stock (plus, subject to certain
conditions, A$0.05 in cash) for each ordinary share in the capital stock of
Normandy. Newmont also entered into an agreement with Franco-Nevada and a
subsidiary of Franco-Nevada, pursuant to which Franco-Nevada and its subsidiary
committed their 19.9% interest in Normandy to Newmont's acquisition of Normandy
and granted Newmont the right to acquire this block of Normandy ordinary shares,
exercisable at Newmont's discretion, at the exchange ratio of Newmont's
off-market bid for Normandy.

            Mr. Wayne W. Murdy, the current President and Chief Executive
Officer of Newmont, will be Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Newmont,
effective January 1, 2002. Mr. Lassonde will be President of the combined
company. The board of directors of the combined company will have up to 17
members. Messrs. Lassonde and Schulich will join the combined company's Board of
Directors. Mr. Robert J. Champion de Crespigny, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Normandy, along with two other individuals, one nominated from among
Normandy nominees and one chosen by Franco-Nevada, will be offered positions on
the expanded Newmont board.
