On July 21, 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Act”) was enacted. Section 1503 of the Act contains new reporting requirements regarding mine safety, including disclosing on a Current Report on Form 8-K the receipt of an imminent danger order under section 107(a) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (an “Order”) issued by the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration (“MSHA”).

On June 27, 2011, High Mark Construction LLC (“High Mark”), an independent contractor for Newmont USA Limited (the “Company”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation, received a verbal Order by an MSHA inspector concerning the work being performed by High Mark at the Company’s Emigrant project site alleging that brakes and seatbelts of the scrapers operating on the site were non-compliant. The verbal Order was issued without inspection. Upon inspection of the seatbelts, the seatbelts were determined to be compliant. Following inspection of the brakes, the Company made a prompt adjustment to the service brakes of one of the scrapers. As a result, the Order was terminated.

No accident or injury occurred at the Emigrant project site and no adverse material impact on the Company resulted from the conditions alleged in the Order.
