Newcrest Mining

NCMAU is the 6th largest gold miner in the world based on 2017 figures, having produced 2.29 mn oz of gold. NCMAU's operations are spread across Australia, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia. ~45% of FY17 production was dug from Australia, with the remaining 55% coming from riskier, less politically stable regions. NCMAU acquired the Lihir mine as a result of the merger with Lihir Gold Limited in August 2010. The miner has struggled for years to keep costs at Lihir under control and performance finally started to improve in F1H16. As of 12/31/17, NCMAU had an estimated 62 mn oz of gold reserves based on a price assumption of $1,200/oz. (11 Sep 2018)
