SYDNEY, 21 January 2002 (DENVER, 20 January 2002)--Newmont Mining Corporation
(NYSE: NEM) confirmed today that it is moving forward on schedule with its plans
for the integration of the businesses of Newmont, Normandy Mining Limited (ASX:
NDY) and Franco-Nevada Mining Corporation Limited (TSE: FN). Newmont continues
to expect to complete its US$4.5 billion acquisitions of Normandy and
Franco-Nevada in mid-February.

"We now are in the final stages of our acquisitions to create the world's
premier gold investment vehicle," said Wayne Murdy, Chairman, President and CEO
of Newmont. "We are accelerating our integration efforts, which are proceeding
with the assistance of the Normandy and Franco-Nevada management teams.
Together, we are building upon the complementary strengths of all three
companies to provide investors with the strongest participation in a rising gold
price and a balanced portfolio of superior assets."

Mr. Murdy noted, "We expect Newmont to be an industry leader in all aspects of
its business. The employees of all three companies share this vision and we will
work together to continue our tradition of environmental excellence and our
commitment to the communities where we operate and the safety of our employees."

Upon completion of the acquisitions, Newmont will:

o     have the largest reserve base and highest production of gold in the world;

o     be one of the best capitalized gold companies, with the financial strength
      to develop attractive projects and to significantly reduce debt over time,
      even at current gold prices;

o     benefit from consistent cash flow (even in a low gold price environment)
      generated by the high margin royalty and investment business of
      Franco-Nevada, which will continue to operate as a division of the
      combined company;

o     operate a diversified portfolio of world-class operations with balanced
      political risk and a focus on large mining districts;

o     offer investors the most leverage to a rising gold price of any major

                                                                          1 OF 2

o     have the ability to optimize the company's asset portfolio;

o     have a strong, seasoned management team and committed employees to deliver
      shareholder value through global exploration, development and operation,
      merchant banking and merger integration.

A special meeting of Newmont shareholders is scheduled for February 13, 2002, at
which Newmont shareholders of record at the close of business January 4, 2002
will be entitled to vote. Shareholders of Franco-Nevada will meet on January 30,
2002 to approve Newmont's acquisition of Franco-Nevada. Newmont's bid for
Normandy, which (subject to its fiduciary duties) the Board of Directors of
Normandy has recommended that shareholders accept, is scheduled to close on
February 15, 2002. AngloGold Limited's offer to acquire Normandy expired on
January 18, 2002, after only slightly more than seven percent of Normandy's
outstanding capital stock had been tendered.

assistance to Newmont in making its offer. Among other things, Normandy has
refused to provide Newmont with certain financial information, and it has not
permitted its auditors to issue a consent in respect of financial information
relating to Normandy.
