GOVERNANCE MATTERS

3.1 Board of Nevada JV.

(a) Board of Managers; Selection of Managers and Chairman. The management and control of Nevada JV and its business and affairs, and the power to act for and to bind Nevada JV, shall be vested exclusively in the Board. The Board shall act as a “manager” pursuant to Section 18-402 of the Act. There shall be five members of the Board and five alternates, one in respect of each Manager. A designated alternate may act in place of the applicable Manager at any meeting of the Board at which such Manager is not present or in connection with any actions to be taken by the Board or by any Manager individually in the absence of such Manager. Any alternate so acting shall be deemed to be a Manager. Three Managers and their respective alternates shall be appointed by the Member that holds a Proportionate Interest greater than 50% (the “Majority Member”) and two Managers and their respective alternates shall be appointed by the other Member (the “Minority Member”). If at any time, and only for so long as, the Members each hold a Proportionate Interest of exactly 50%, the Member whose Proportionate Interest was last more than 50% shall be deemed to be the Majority Member. The chairman of the Board shall be appointed by the Majority Member from its appointed Managers and may be represented by his or her alternate on the Board. Each Manager will owe a fiduciary

23

duty to the Nevada JV in performing his or her role as a Manager equivalent to the duty of care provided under Delaware Legal Requirements for directors of Delaware corporations, but not any other fiduciary duty. Subject to and without limiting the foregoing, in the course of discharging his or her duties, each Manager may take into consideration the interests of the Member that nominated him or her.

(b) Current Managers. The initial Managers appointed by Barrick Member and their respective alternates are Mark Bristow (Chairman) and Rodney Quick, as alternate, Catherine Raw and George Joannou, as alternate, and Robert Krcmarov and John Steele, as alternate. The initial Managers appointed by Newmont Member and their respective alternates are Gary Goldberg and Dean Gehring, as alternate, and Tom Palmer and Nancy Buese, as alternate.

(c) Procedures. A Manager (including a Manager who is the chairman of the Board or any designated alternate) may be removed and another appointed in his or her place at the instance of the Member who has the right to appoint the Manager (including the chairman of the Board or designated alternate). A Member with the right to appoint a Manager (including the chairman of the Board or a designated alternate) shall make such appointment, or shall effect the removal and replacement of a prior appointee, by written notice to the other Member, Nevada JV and the chairman of the Board.

(d) Resignation of Managers. A Manager may resign as a member of the Board at any time upon written notice to the Board and the Member that appointed him or her. Upon the resignation of a Manager, the Member that appointed such Manager shall have the right to appoint another Manager in his or her place pursuant to Section 3.1(c).

3.2 Meetings of Board.

(a) Regular, Special and Rescheduled Meetings.

(i) The Board shall hold regular meetings at least quarterly. Meetings shall be held at places within the United States (which may be in or outside the State of Delaware) determined by the Operating Member, or otherwise as may be agreed by the Managers or permitted pursuant to Section 3.2(d). The Operating Member shall give 30 days’ notice to the Managers of such regular meetings. Additionally, any Manager may call a special meeting upon 15 days’ notice to the Operating Member and the other Managers. In case of emergency, reasonable notice of a special meeting shall suffice.

(ii)  There shall be a quorum if three Managers are present, at least one of which must be a Manager appointed by the Majority Member and at least one of which must be a Manager appointed by the Minority Member. If a quorum is not present within 30 minutes following the time appointed for the commencement of the Board meeting, any Manager present may adjourn the meeting, which then shall be automatically rescheduled for the same time of day and at the same place on the sixth Business Day thereafter at the location where the meeting is to be held. The Operating Member shall make a good faith effort to give notice to the Managers of the rescheduled meeting but otherwise shall be under no obligation to give any Manager notice thereof. A quorum shall be deemed to be present at such rescheduled meeting for all purposes under this

24

Agreement if at least three Managers are present. Only those items included on the agenda for the original meeting (and which are not subject to 100% approval pursuant to Section 3.3(c)) may be acted upon at such a rescheduled meeting, but any matters may be considered with the consent of all Managers.

(b) Presence of Other Persons. The Managers appointed by each Member may, upon notice provided to the chairman and at the expense of such Member, invite other persons who have a reasonable business purpose for being present, to attend any meeting of the Board; provided that the Manager(s) representing the other Member consents, which consent need not be in writing, may be given by acquiescence and may not be unreasonably withheld. If personnel employed in Operations are required to attend a Board meeting, reasonable costs incurred in connection with such attendance shall be paid for by the Operating Member as a Chargeable Cost. All other costs in respect of invited persons shall be paid for by the Member whose appointed Managers extended the invitation.

(c) Agendas; Minutes. Each notice of a meeting shall include an itemized agenda prepared by the Operating Member in the case of a regular meeting or by the Manager calling the meeting in the case of a special meeting, but any matters may be considered with the consent of all Managers. The Operating Member shall prepare minutes of all meetings, including a rescheduled meeting, and shall distribute copies of such minutes to the Managers within 20 days after the meeting. The minutes, when approved by each Manager in attendance at the meeting, shall be the official record of the decisions made by the Board and shall be binding on the Operating Member and the Members. The minutes of a meeting shall be deemed to have been approved by a Manager unless such Manager objects in writing within 20 days after being provided with such minutes. Approval of the minutes shall not be a condition to the effectiveness of actions properly taken by the Board.

(d) Meetings by Video or Telephonic Means. The Board may hold meetings via telephone or by video conference so long as all participants are able to hear and speak to each other and decisions are confirmed in writing by the Managers (which confirmation may be made by approval of the minutes of the meeting pursuant to Section 3.3(c)).

(e) Voting. A vote of the Managers present in respect of a proposal submitted for a vote of the Board at a meeting at which a quorum is present is referred to as a “Vote”. Except as provided in Section 3.3(c), Approval of a resolution or other proposal brought before the Board shall require a greater than 50% affirmative Vote of the Managers present at a meeting at which a quorum is present. The aggregate voting power of the Barrick Member and Newmont Member nominee Managers will be based upon such Parties’ Proportionate Interest. For example, on the date hereof, the Barrick Member nominee Managers will be entitled to cast an aggregate 61.5% of the Vote on any matter, notwithstanding that they comprise only 60% of the individuals who serve as Managers and regardless of the number of nominee Managers attending any particular Board meeting. The aggregate voting power of each Member shall be apportioned equally to the nominee Managers of such Member present at a meeting. For example, on the date hereof, (i) if three Barrick Member nominee Managers are present at a meeting, each shall have Voting power equal to 20.5% and (ii) if two Barrick Member nominee Managers are present at a meeting, each shall have Voting power equal to 30.75%.

(f) Actions by Written Consent. Any action required or permitted to be taken at any meeting of the Board may be taken without a meeting if all of the Managers consent thereto, and the writing or writings (including any waivers of notice) are filed with the minutes of

25

proceedings of the Board. No Manager may sign any such written consent while present in Canada.

The Finance Committee shall be composed of six individuals, three appointed by each Member. Each member shall be referred to as a “Finance Representative”. The Finance Representatives appointed by Barrick Member shall be referred to as the “Barrick Finance Representatives” and the Finance Representatives appointed by Newmont Member shall be referred to as the “Newmont Finance Representatives”.

Each Member shall also be entitled to designate from time to time one or more observers to attend meetings of the Finance Committee, provided that the number of observers designated by a Member to attend any meeting shall not exceed three without the prior approval of the other Member, which the other Member shall not unreasonably withhold.

The role of the Finance Committee shall be advisory to the Board on all matters related to financial and tax matters. The Finance Committee will have no authority over making any final decision on financial or tax reporting, which shall be governed by this Agreement. The recommendations and advice of the Finance Committee are subject in all instances to the determinations of the Board and the provisions of this Agreement. The Finance Representatives shall not receive any compensation from Nevada JV or its subsidiaries for service on the Finance Committee.

The Board may also establish from time to time such other advisory committees as the Board determines to be necessary or desirable to facilitate the Operations and will establish an exploration committee with functions and governance procedures similar to those adopted in respect of the Finance Committee and the Technical Committee pursuant to Sections 3.8 and 3.9. All such committees shall include an equal number of representatives of each Member, shall be advisory only and shall not have any independent decision-making authority. Each Member shall also be entitled to designate from time to time one or more observers to attend meetings of such committees, provided that the number of observers designated by a Member to attend any meeting shall not exceed three without the prior approval of the other Member, which the other Member shall not unreasonably withhold. A Member that wishes to designate any such observers shall (i) provide Nevada JV and the other Member with reasonable prior written notice of the names and positions held by such observers in advance of any meeting to be attended by such observers, and (ii) be solely responsible for distributing to such observers any materials provided to such Member’s representatives on such committee.

EXCLUDED DEVELOPMENT/EXPLORATION PROPERTIES; MATERIAL CAPITAL PROJECTS

6.1 Contribution of Excluded Development/Exploration Properties.

Where an Excluded Property Feasibility Study conducted in respect of an Excluded Development/Exploration Property is a Successful Study, the applicable Member that owns (or that is Affiliated with the owner of) such Excluded Development/Exploration Property (the “Contributing Member”) shall promptly provide written notice (a “Contribution Notice”) of the same to Nevada JV and the other Member (the “Non-Contributing Member”) (which notice shall be accompanied by (i) to the extent not previously provided, a copy of the Excluded Property Feasibility Study, and (ii) a detailed statement as to the cost of the Excluded Property Feasibility Study together with reasonable supporting documentation) and such Excluded Development/Exploration Property shall be contributed to Nevada JV in accordance with the following provisions:

(a) the Contributing Member shall promptly cause a valuation of its interest in the Excluded Development/Exploration Property to be completed in accordance with the procedures set out in Schedule F (the “Excluded Development/Exploration Property Value”) and shall promptly provide a copy of such valuation to the Non-Contributing Member;

(b) promptly and in any event within 15 days following the determination of the Contribution Value, subject to any extensions required to obtain necessary regulatory approvals, the Contributing Member shall (or, if applicable, shall cause its Affiliate to) contribute to Nevada JV all of its interest in the Excluded Development/Exploration Property (the “Contribution”);

(c) the Contribution shall be valued as the sum of (i) the Excluded Development/Exploration Property Value, plus (ii) the total aggregate costs, expenses and fees incurred by the Contributing Member and its Affiliates in connection with the Excluded Property Feasibility Study (together with the Excluded Development/Exploration Property Value, the “Contribution Value”);

(d) in connection with the Contribution, within 30 days of receiving the valuation determining the Excluded Development/Exploration Property Value the Non-Contributing Member may elect to either:

(i) pay to the Contributing Member on the date of the completion of the Contribution (the “Contribution Date”) an amount equal to the product of:

(A) the Non-Contributing Member’s Proportionate Interest (as at the time immediately prior to the Contribution), multiplied by

(B) the Contribution Value; ou

(ii) permit its Proportionate Interest to be diluted, effective as of the Contribution Date, by treating such Contribution as a Capital Contribution in the amount of the Contribution Value and recalculating the

59

Proportionate Interests taking into account the Contribution Value contributed by the Contributing Member (in which case the Schedule of Members will be updated by the Board to give effect to such Contribution). An illustration of such recalculation is set out in Part I of Schedule G.

(e) If the Non-Contributing Member fails to make such an election within such 30 day period, it shall be deemed to have elected to have its Proportionate Interest diluted in accordance with Section 6.1(d)(ii).

(f) If an Excluded Development/Exploration Property is contributed to Nevada JV in accordance with this Section 6.1, (i) the Contributing Member shall be deemed to have made a Capital Contribution in the amount of the Contribution Value less any amount paid by the Non-Contributing Member pursuant to Section 6.1(d)(i) and (ii) the Non-Contributing Member shall be deemed to have made a Capital Contribution in the amount paid by the Non-Contributing Member pursuant to Section 6.1(d)(i), if any.

(g) In connection with the contribution of the Excluded Development/Exploration Property to Nevada JV, on the Contribution Date Nevada JV will assume all liabilities relating to or associated with the Excluded Development/Exploration Property.

For the purposes of this Section 6.1, an “Excluded Property Feasibility Study” means a feasibility study undertaken by the Contributing Member for the purpose of evaluating the development of the Excluded Development/Exploration Property as an integrated expansion of the Nevada JV Business, and includes any associated program of exploration (including site preparation, drilling and environmental compliance) completed in connection with the Excluded Property Feasibility Study or any previous prefeasibility study. The Operating Member shall cause Nevada JV to cooperate with either Member’s conduct of an Excluded Property Feasibility Study with respect to any Excluded Development/Exploration Property of such Member or its Affiliate; provided, however, that any incremental costs incurred by Nevada JV as a result of such cooperation shall be borne exclusively by the applicable Member that is conducting an Excluded Property Feasibility Study.

6.2 Disposition of Excluded Development/Exploration Properties.

(a) No Member shall (or shall permit any of its Affiliates to) sell, convey or otherwise dispose of any of its right, title or interest in an Excluded/Development Property (an “Excluded Property Disposition Transaction”) unless:

(i) such Member has first complied with the terms and conditions of this Section 6.2;

(ii) such Member has conducted an Excluded Property Feasibility Study in respect of such Excluded Development/Exploration Property and such study is not a Successful Study, or such Member has otherwise determined, acting reasonably, on the basis of a pre-feasibility study process, whether or not completed, that an Excluded Property Feasibility Study in respect of such Excluded Development/Exploration Property would not be a Successful Study;

60

(iii) copies of any Excluded Property Feasibility Study or studies or analyses prepared in connection with a pre-feasibility study process conducted in accordance with Section 6.2(a)(ii) (as applicable, the “Applicable Study”) are promptly provided by such Member to the other Member; et

(iv) the terms and conditions of such Excluded Property Disposition Transaction preserve, in favor of Nevada JV, access rights in respect of such Excluded Development/Exploration Property substantially the similar to the access rights provided pursuant to Section 6.4.

(b) A Member proposing an Excluded Property Disposition Transaction (the “Proposing Member”) shall give notice in writing (an “Offer Notice”) to the other Member (the “Offeree Member”) if a jóhiszemű written offer (“Third Party Offer”) in respect of an Excluded Property Disposition Transaction is received from an arms’ length third party (whether such Third Party Offer is unsolicited from the third party or arises as a result of an outbound inquiry by the Proposing Member), and the Proposing Member is prepared to accept such Third Party Offer. The Offer Notice must (i) specify the name of the third party making the Third Party Offer, the price (including a cash equivalent if non-cash consideration is being offered) and the principal terms and conditions of the Third Party Offer and (ii) to the extent not previously provided to the Offeree Member, include a copy of the Applicable Study in respect of such Excluded Development/Exploration Property. The Offer Notice will include an offer (the “Other Member Offer”) to sell the Excluded Development/Exploration Property that is subject to the Third Party Offer to the Offeree Member at the same price and on substantially the same terms contained in the Third Party Offer (which may be no more favorable to the Proposing Member than the terms of the Third Party Offer). If the Third Party Offer is for non-cash consideration and the Offeree Member, acting reasonably, does not agree with the value of the non-cash consideration set out by the Proposing Member in the Offer Notice, the Offeree Member shall immediately notify the Proposing Member and the parties shall negotiate in good faith to determine a mutually agreeable value.

(c) At any time prior to the expiration of the later of (i) 15 Business Days following the date of delivery of an Offer Notice, and (ii) 60 days following the date of delivery of the Applicable Study (the “Excluded Property ROFR Exercise Period”), the Offeree Member shall have the right, in its discretion, to accept the Other Member Offer by giving written notice to the Proposing Member; provided that if the Third Party Offer is for non-cash consideration and the Offeree Member does not agree with the value of the non-cash consideration set out by the Proposing Member in the Offer Notice, the Excluded Property ROFR Exercise Period shall automatically be extended to the date that is the later of (i) 15 Business Days following determination by the parties of a mutually agreeable value, and (ii) 60 days following the date of delivery of the Applicable Study. If requested by the Offeree Member, the Proposing Member will use its commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Offeree Member, as promptly as practicable, with such information concerning the applicable Excluded Development/Exploration Property as was made available to the Person that made the Third Party Offer for the purposes of determining whether to accept an Other Member Offer.

(d) If the Other Member Offer is accepted by the Offeree Member, then the Offeree Member shall purchase the Excluded Development/Exploration Property subject to the Other Member Offer upon the terms and conditions contained in the Other Member Offer. Such purchase shall be completed as soon as reasonably practicable following such acceptance. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Offeree Member purchases the Excluded Development/Exploration Property, (i) such Excluded Development/Exploration Property shall

61

no longer be subject to Section 6.1 or this Section 6.2, and (ii) the Offeree Member and its representatives shall continue to have the access and use rights described in Section 4.9 in respect of the development of such Excluded Development/Exploration Property.

(e) Provided that the Proposing Member has complied with all of the provisions of this Section 6.2, and that the Offeree Member has not delivered an acceptance of the Other Member Offer during the Excluded Property ROFR Exercise Period (or has notified the Proposing Member in writing that it will not deliver such an acceptance), then, at any time during the 120-day period following the expiration of the Excluded Property ROFR Exercise Period (or such earlier date on which the Proposing Member receives notice in writing from the Offeree Member that it will not deliver an acceptance), the Proposing Member or its Affiliate may consummate an Excluded Property Disposition Transaction with any Person with respect to the applicable Excluded Development/Exploration Property that is at the same or greater price and on terms and conditions that, taken as a whole, are no more favorable to such Person, and no less favorable to the Proposing Member, than the terms and conditions set forth in the Other Member Offer (and, for this purpose, any such agreement shall be deemed to exclude any obligation that cannot reasonably be fulfilled by the Offeree Member and its Affiliates). If no such Disposition Transaction is consummated prior to the expiry of such 120-day period, the terms and conditions of this Section 6.2 will again apply to any proposed Excluded Property Disposition Transaction.

6.3 Material Capital Projects.

The following provisions shall govern the Development of a proposed Material Capital Project:

(a) Where a feasibility study conducted in respect of a proposed Material Capital Project is a Successful Study, the Operating Member may cause the General Manager to prepare a Capital Project Budget in respect of the proposed Material Capital Project. A Material Capital Project that is not supported by a Successful Study may not proceed, and the Operating Member shall not direct the General Manager to prepare a Capital Project Budget, unless the unanimous approval of the Board is first obtained.

(b) Following completion of a Capital Project Budget, a decision to proceed with the Development of the Material Capital Project in accordance with the Capital Project Budget will be put to the Board for its Approval. If the Board Approves the Development of the Material Capital Project, either Member may, by providing written notice (an “Opt-Out Notice”) to the other Member within 30 days of the approval of the Material Capital Project by the Board, elect not to participate in the Material Capital Project (such Member, the “Non-Funding Member”). If no Member has delivered an Opt-Out Notice within the 30 day period prescribed by this Section 6.3(b), both Members shall be deemed to have agreed to fund the Material Capital Project (a “Co-Funded Capital Project”) and shall be required to satisfy any Member Contributions related to the Co-Funded Capital Project in proportion to their Proportionate Interest.

(c) If a Member receives an Opt-Out Notice within the timeframe prescribed by Section 6.3(b), such Member may, within 30 days from the receipt of the Opt-Out Notice, elect to sole fund the Material Capital Project by providing notice to this effect to the Non-Funding Member (a “Sole Funding Notice”). A failure to

62

provide a Sole Funding Notice within the prescribed 30-day period shall be deemed a decision not to proceed unilaterally with the Material Capital Project. A Member that elects to sole fund in accordance with this Section 6.3(c) is referred to as the “Sole Funding Member.” For clarity, a Material Capital Project that is proceeding with a Sole Funding Member shall be funded, to the extent that the expenditures thereon constitute Development Capital Expenditures, solely by the Sole Funding Member’s Member Contributions contributed for such purpose and not by other Cash Available to Nevada JV.

(d) The Proportionate Interests of the Members shall be recalculated, and the Schedule of Members shall be updated, to give effect to the Member Contributions made to fund the Material Capital Project. For the avoidance of doubt, any cost overruns that exceed the Capital Project Budget but which are funded by Member Contributions by the Sole Funding Member shall nonetheless dilute the interest of the Non-Funding Member. An illustration of such recalculation is set out in Part II of Schedule G.

(e) Any failure to make a required Member Contribution within 10 Business Days following a Monthly Funding Statement or Special Funding Statement in respect of the Co-Funded Capital Project shall constitute a Funding Default.

6.4 Access to Excluded Development/Exploration Properties.

Subject to the following provisions, Nevada JV or its subsidiaries or any of their respective representatives shall be entitled to access and make use of the lands of any Excluded Development/Exploration Property for purposes of bona fide Nevada JV Operations:

(a) the Operating Member shall provide the Member that owns, or whose Affiliate owns, such Excluded Development/Exploration Property with reasonable advance written notice of its desire to access and use such lands, including a detailed summary of the proposed access and use;

(b) such access and use shall not adversely impact the value or use of the Excluded Development/Exploration Property by such Member or its Affiliate, as determined by such Member, acting reasonably;

(c) Nevada JV shall at all times abide by applicable safety procedures of such Member;

(d) Nevada JV shall be solely responsible for performing, at its sole cost, all reclamation, restoration and Environmental Compliance related to or arising out of its use of such Property;

(e) any incremental costs incurred by such Member or its Affiliate (including personnel related costs) or losses suffered by such Member or its Affiliates as a result of such access and use shall be borne exclusively by Nevada JV.

63

6.5 No Other Restrictions.

Except for the provisions of Sections 6.1, 6.2 and 6.3, nothing in this Agreement is intended to, or shall, limit either Member in its activities with respect to, or disposition of any interest in, any of its respective Excluded Development/Exploration Properties.

ARTICLE 7

EXCLUDED CLOSURE PROPERTIES

7.1 Treatment of Excluded Closure Properties.

For certainty, it is acknowledged that none of the Excluded Closure Properties were, and none shall be, contributed to the Nevada JV. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to, or shall, limit either Member in its activities with respect to, or disposition of any interest in, any of its respective Excluded Closure Properties.

7.2 Excluded Closure Properties

The Parties acknowledge and agree that a Member may, by notice in writing to the Operating Member, appoint the Operating Member to manage and carry out all operations related to the shutdown and closure of any Excluded Closure Property owned by such Member pursuant to the applicable Closure Plans. The appointment of the Operating Member following a notice given by a Member under this Section 7.2 shall be conditional on such Member and the Operating Member, each acting reasonably and in good faith, negotiating and entering into a mutually acceptable agreement setting out the terms and conditions upon which the Operating Member shall manage such closure operations. Among other things, such terms and conditions shall provide that the Operating Member shall have the right to recover from the applicable Member that owns an Excluded Closure Property, and such Member will reimburse the Operating Member for, all costs and expenses incurred by the Operating Member in respect of such closure operations and any losses and damages it suffers from the conduct of such closure operations, except to the extent caused by or attributable to the Operating Member’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.

ARTICLE 8

(i) first, to pay, as required pursuant to the terms of any Member Loans that may have been made to Nevada JV by the Members or their respective Affiliates, unless waived by both Members; et

(ii) second, as distributions to the Members, in accordance with each Member’s Proportionate Interest, subject to Section 5.2(a)(iii) and Section 9.5(c)(i).

(c) Special Distributions of Proceeds. As soon as practicable following consummation of any sale or other disposition of Nevada JV Assets in one or a series of related transactions with a value of $50 million or more (other than a sale of Products or a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of Nevada JV, which is subject to Section 8.1(d)), Nevada JV shall distribute to the Members, in accordance with each Member’s Proportionate Interest, the proceeds of such sale or other disposition, net of related transaction costs and reserves for transaction-related liabilities determined by the Board.

(d) Distributions Upon Liquidation. Distributions upon the winding up of Nevada JV, including proceeds from a liquidation of the assets of Nevada JV, or a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of Nevada JV, shall, after compliance with Section 17.1(c), be distributed to Members in accordance with Section 8.1(b).

ARTICLE 9

DEFAULTS AND REMEDIES

9.1 Defaults.

A Member defaulting in the performance of any of its obligations or duties under this Agreement, including a Member in its capacity as Operating Member, shall be referred to as the “Defaulting Member”, and the other Member (including a Member in its capacity as Operating Member) shall be referred to as the “Non-Defaulting Member”.

65

9.2 Notice of Default.

A Non-Defaulting Member shall give the Defaulting Member a written notice of default (a “Notice of Default”), which shall describe the default in reasonable detail and state the date by which the default must be cured, which date for curing or commencing to cure shall be not less than 30 days after receipt of the Notice of Default, except in the case of a failure to advance funds, in which case the date for cure shall be not less than 10 days after receipt of the Notice of Default; provided, however, that advance notice shall not be required prior to the taking of action by the Non-Defaulting Member to provide funds pursuant to Section 9.5(b) or Section 9.5(c) to rectify the default in an emergency or if necessary to avoid losses or breaches of contractual or governmental obligations. Failure of a Non-Defaulting Member to give a Notice of Default shall not release the Defaulting Member from any of its duties under this Agreement.

9.3 Opportunity to Cure.

If within the applicable period described in Section 9.2 the Defaulting Member cures the default, or if the failure is one (other than the failure to make payments or to advance funds) that cannot in good faith be corrected within such period and the Defaulting Member begins to correct the default within the applicable period and continues corrective efforts with reasonable diligence until a cure is effected, the Notice of Default shall be inoperative, and the Defaulting Member shall lose no rights under this Agreement and shall not be considered in breach of this Agreement and the Non-Defaulting Member shall take no further action with respect thereto. If, within the specified period, the Defaulting Member does not cure the default or begin to cure the default as provided above, the Non-Defaulting Member at the expiration of the applicable period, or upon notice where no cure period is allowed, shall have the rights specified in Section 9.4; biztosítani. mais, that if the Defaulting Member in good faith contests whether the alleged default has in fact occurred (other than the failure to make payments or to advance funds), the Defaulting Member shall give notice thereof to the Non-Defaulting Member within the applicable cure period described in Section 9.2. The provisions of Article 14 shall then be applicable (except as otherwise provided herein) and the rights of the Non-Defaulting Member to pursue its remedies shall be suspended until a final determination is made as to the existence of the alleged default. If the determination confirms that a default has occurred, the Defaulting Member shall be deemed upon receipt of the determination to have received a further notice of default pursuant to Section 9.2 and shall have the opportunity to cure as provided above in this Section 9.3 (with no further right to contest the default).

9.4 Rights Upon Default.

The Non-Defaulting Member, after providing notice and an opportunity to cure as provided in Sections 9.2 and 9.3, shall have the right (but not the duty) to exercise any remedy provided in Section 9.5, which remedies are cumulative and are in addition to and not in substitution for any other rights or remedies that the Non-Defaulting Member may have in law or equity. The Members acknowledge that if either Member defaults in making a contribution required by Section 5.6(b), Section 6.3(b) (relating to a Co-Funded Capital Project) or any other provision of this Agreement, or in repaying a loan as required under Section 9.5(c), it will be difficult to measure the damages resulting from such default (it being hereby understood and agreed that the Members have attempted to determine such damages in advance and determined that the calculation of such damages cannot be ascertained with reasonable certainty). Both Members acknowledge and recognize that the damage to the Non-Defaulting Member could be significant.

66

9.5 Failure to Provide Funds.

(a) Par défaut. If a default referred to in Section 9.1 is a failure of the Defaulting Member to provide Member Contributions as required pursuant to Section 5.6(b), Section 6.3(b) (relating to a Co-Funded Capital Project) or otherwise herein (a “Funding Default”), the Non-Defaulting Member may, többek között, exercise any of the remedies set forth in Section 9.5(b) or Section 9.5(c) with respect to the defaulted amount (the “Defaulted Amount”).

(b) Additional Contribution to Cover Funding Default. The Non-Defaulting Member may, within five Business Days following the last day of the cure period, elect to cover the Funding Default by contributing the Defaulted Amount as an additional Member Contribution in the form of a Capital Contribution.

(c) Default Loan.

(i) The Non-Defaulting Member may, within five Business Days following the last day of the cure period, elect to pay the Defaulted Amount to Nevada JV and have such payment deemed to be a loan from the Non-Defaulting Member to the Defaulting Member (a “Default Loan”). The Default Loan shall be due and payable on demand upon 30 days’ notice given no sooner than 90 days after the advance or assumption is made, and shall bear interest from the date advanced at an annual rate equal to 6% over the LIBOR Rate as the same shall change from time to time or at the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less, computed monthly in arrears and compounded (at the same interest rate as is applicable to principal) at the end of each Calendar Year until repaid in full. If more than one Default Loan is made by a Non-Defaulting Member to the Defaulting Member, all such Default Loans shall be aggregated, and the rights and remedies described herein pertaining to an individual advance shall apply to the aggregated amount. Upon the making of a Default Loan, the Non-Defaulting Member may require the Defaulting Member to, and the Defaulting Member shall, execute promissory notes or other documents evidencing the Default Loan reasonably requested by the Non-Defaulting Member. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Member irrevocably agrees that as a Defaulting Member it shall pay the amount of the Default Loan together with accrued interest to the Non-Defaulting Member when due. If the aggregate amount payable is not discharged by the Defaulting Member when due, the Non-Defaulting Member, without waiver of other remedies, may exercise the remedies set forth below to the extent permitted by applicable Legal Requirements.

(ii) The Non-Defaulting Member may by notice to Nevada JV and the Defaulting Member elect to, and upon such election shall be entitled to, receive all Nevada JV Distributions and Member Loan Payments that the Defaulting Member would otherwise be entitled to receive from Nevada JV until an amount that is equal to the amount of the Default Loan (aggregated if applicable) plus interest as provided in Section 9.5(c)(i) has been recovered by the Non-Defaulting Member. All such amounts received by the Non-Defaulting Member shall be first applied to accrued interest and then to the principal amount of the Default Loan. Each Member hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs Nevada JV to retain

67

and hold in trust all of Nevada JV Distributions and Member Loan Payments that such Member would be entitled to receive after the Non-Defaulting Member has elected to receive same as provided above and to pay such amounts to the Non-Defaulting Member on the Defaulting Member’s behalf until an amount that is equal to the amount of the Default Loan plus interest as provided in Section 9.5(c)(i) has been recovered by the Non-Defaulting Member.

(d) Indemnification. Each Member agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Nevada JV and the other Member from and against each loss, cost, damage, expense (including attorneys’ fees and costs), liability and claim therefor, paid or accrued by reason of, and to the extent caused by, any failure described in Section 9.5(a), subject to the damage limitations set forth in Section 18.14; provided, however, that if the Non-Defaulting Member proceeds in accordance with either Section 9.5(b) or 9.5(c), it shall be deemed to have elected the remedies in such Section to the exclusion of all other remedies.

9.6 Dilution Mechanism.

If a Funding Default occurs, if and to the extent required by the definitions of Barrick Notional Capital Account and Newmont Notional Capital Account, the Proportionate Interest of each Member will be recalculated to reflect the Funding Default and, if applicable, any election by the Non-Defaulting Member to cover the Funding Default by making an additional Member Contribution in accordance with Section 9.5(b) and the Schedule of Members shall be updated. An illustration of such recalculation is set out in Part III of Schedule G. For certainty, if a Funding Default occurs and the Non-Defaulting Member has elected to fund the Defaulted Amount as a Default Loan in accordance with Section 9.5(c), the Defaulting Member’s Proportionate Interest will not be diluted as a result of such Funding Default.

9.7 Limited Powers of Attorney.

(a) Appointment by Barrick Member. Each of Barrick Member and Barrick hereby irrevocably appoints Newmont Member to be its attorney acting on its respective behalf and in its respective name or otherwise to execute and do all such assurances, acts and things which it ought to do under the covenants and provisions contained in this Agreement relating to the execution and delivery of promissory notes or other documents evidencing a loan from Newmont Member as provided in Section 9.5(c). Such appointment and power of attorney is coupled with an interest, and Barrick Member and Barrick hereby ratify and confirm and agree to ratify and confirm whatever Newmont Member shall in good faith do or purport to do in the exercise or purported exercise of all or any of the powers, authorities and discretions referred to in such Section. Barrick Member and Barrick agree to and shall reaffirm the powers granted in this Section 9.7(a) upon the permitted succession of any Person to the interests of Newmont Member under this Agreement and (in its capacity as the successor) upon the permitted succession of any Person to the interests of Barrick Member or Barrick under this Agreement.

(b) Appointment by Newmont Member. Each of Newmont Member and Newmont hereby irrevocably appoint Barrick Member to be its attorney acting on its respective behalf and in its respective name or otherwise to execute and do all such assurances, acts and things which it ought to do under the covenants and provisions contained in this Agreement relating to the execution and delivery of promissory notes or other documents evidencing a loan from Barrick Member as provided in Section 9.5(c). Such appointment and power of attorney is coupled with an interest, and Newmont Member and Newmont hereby ratify and confirm and

68

agree to ratify and confirm whatever Barrick Member shall in good faith do or purport to do in the exercise or purported exercise of all or any of the powers, authorities and discretions referred to in such Section. Newmont Member and Newmont agree to and shall reaffirm the powers granted in this Section 9.7(b) upon the permitted succession of any Person to the interests of Barrick Member under this Agreement and (in its capacity as the successor) upon the permitted succession of any Person to the interests of Newmont Member or Newmont under this Agreement.

9.8 Remedies Not Exclusive; No Waiver.

Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, (i) each and every power and remedy specifically given to the Non-Defaulting Member shall be in addition to every other power and remedy now or hereafter available at law or in equity (including the right to specific performance), and (ii) each and every power and remedy may be exercised from time to time and as often and in such order as may be deemed expedient. All such powers and remedies shall be cumulative, and the exercise of one shall not be deemed a waiver of the right to exercise any other. No delay or omission in the exercise of any such power or remedy and no extension of time for making any payments due under this Agreement shall impair any such power or remedy or shall be construed to be a waiver of any default.

9.9 Elimination of Minority Interest by Redemption for Royalty.

At any time on or following such time as the Proportionate Interest of either Member is diluted to less than 10% (such diluted Member being the “Minority Interest Holder”), at the option of the other Member, the Membership Interests and Member Loans held directly or indirectly by the Minority Interest Holder and its Affiliates shall respectively be redeemed and cancelled by Nevada JV in exchange for a net smelter returns royalty (a “Minority Royalty”) of one and one-half percent on all Product. Upon such redemption and cancellation, (i) the Minority Interest Holder shall immediately execute and deliver all such conveyances, instruments of Transfer and other documents as may be necessary or desirable to effect the foregoing, and (ii) Nevada JV and the Minority Interest Holder shall forthwith execute a Minority Royalty agreement the principal terms of which are stated on Schedule H.

(a) (i) On the date hereof, Nevada JV and Barrick Cortez shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to Barrick a Net Smelter Returns Royalty Deed in the form attached as Schedule I-A with respect to the properties included in the Barrick Contributed Assets, and (ii) on the first day immediately following the execution and delivery of this Agreement, Nevada JV and Leeville Holdco shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to Newmont a Net Smelter Returns Royalty Deed in the form attached as Schedule I-B with respect to the properties included in the Newmont Contributed Assets (each a “Retained Royalty Deed”).

(b) If and when an Excluded Development/Exploration Property is contributed to Nevada JV by a Member or an Affiliate of such Member in accordance with Section 6.1, such Member, Nevada JV and the other grantor (i.e., either Barrick Cortez or Leeville Holdco) under the Retained Royalty Deed to which such Member is a party shall amend such Retained Royalty

Deed to: (i) include the contributed properties in the “Properties” that are subject to such Retained Royalty Deed, and (ii) increase the Threshold Amount as stated in such Retained Royalty Deed by the amounts of all mineral reserves (proven and probable) and mineral resources (measured, indicated and inferred) of gold and, if applicable, copper, if any, for such Excluded Development/Exploration Property, as stated in the most recent public filings of such Member’s Parent.

(c) If Nevada JV or any subsidiary of Nevada JV sells, abandons or otherwise disposes of any Nevada JV property that is subject to a Retained Royalty Deed, then:

(i) such property shall cease to be subject to such Retained Royalty Deed;

(ii) the parties to such Retained Royalty Deed shall amend such Retained Royalty Deed to exclude such property;

(iii) the “Threshold Amount” as stated in such Retained Royalty Deed shall be reduced by (A) the amounts of all mineral reserves (proven and probable) and mineral resources (measured, indicated and inferred) of gold and copper, if applicable, if any, that were attributable to such property on the date of the Implementation Agreement for purposes of calculating such Threshold Amount (or, in the case of a contributed Excluded Development/Exploration Property, the date of its contribution in accordance with Section 6.1), less (B) the quantities of gold and, if applicable, copper that were produced by Nevada JV and its subsidiaries from such property and credited towards the Threshold Amount prior to the date of such disposition; et

(iv) the conveyance of such property shall be made subject to the retention in favor of the Member that contributed, or whose Affiliate contributed, such property (or the entity holding such property) to Nevada JV, of a royalty equal to (A) 1.5% of net smelter returns on all production from such property, net of (B) the amount of any other royalties on such property as of the date of such conveyance (“Existing Royalties”), on the same terms and conditions as the applicable Retained Royalty Deed but without including any “Threshold Amount” or similar concept, in form reasonably acceptable to such Member; provided that the royalty retained by such Member shall in no event be less than 0.5% of net smelter returns on all production from such property. By way of example, if, as of the date of such conveyance, such property is subject to an Existing Royalty in the amount of (1) 0.5% of net smelter returns on production, then the amount of the royalty retained by the Member that contributed, or whose Affiliate contributed, such property shall be equal to 1.0% or net smelter returns, or (2) 1.5% of net smelter returns or more, then the amount of the royalty retained by the Member that contributed, or whose Affiliate contributed, such property shall be 0.5% of net smelter returns. If any Existing Royalty is other than a net smelter returns royalty, then the Members shall negotiate in good faith to agree on an equivalent value net smelter returns royalty for purposes of determining the amount of such Existing Royalty that is netted pursuant to clause (B) above.

(a) Notwithstanding Section 3.3(c)(xiv), Nevada JV and its subsidiaries may, from time to time, directly or indirectly, apply for or acquire mineral rights, surface rights and or ancillary rights including water rights, over areas that fall in whole within the Area of Interest, or that constitute a single property interest or group of contiguous property interests that falls in part within the Area of Interest. Only if approved in accordance with Section 3.3(c)(xiv), Nevada JV and its subsidiaries may, from time to time, apply for or acquire other mineral rights, surface rights and or ancillary rights including water rights, over areas that fall in whole outside the Area of Interest but in the State of Nevada. Without the approval of the Members, Nevada JV and its subsidiaries may not, directly or indirectly, apply for or acquire mineral rights, surface rights and or ancillary rights including water rights, over areas that fall outside the State of Nevada.

(b) Subject to Section 13.2, if, from time to time, after the date hereof, any interest whatsoever in any real property or any mineral concessions, leases, claims or other form of mineral rights whatsoever, including mineral rights, surface rights and/or ancillary rights, including water rights, are issued, transferred to or acquired, directly or indirectly, by a Member or an Affiliate of a Member (other than Nevada JV and its subsidiaries) (the “Acquiring Member”) that (i) fall in whole within the Area of Interest, (ii) constitute a single property interest or group of contiguous property interests that falls predominantly within the Area of Interest, or (iii) constitute a single property interest or group of contiguous property interests that falls in part (but not predominantly) within the Area of Interest (in the case of (i) and (ii), all of such interests or rights, and in the case of (iii), only the portion of such interests or rights that falls within the Area of Interest, are referred to as the “Additional Rights”), then upon the date of such

73

acquisition the Acquiring Member shall promptly provide notice containing the full particulars of the Additional Rights to the Board. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Additional Rights shall not include any royalty or other interest in any Excluded Property that is retained by or granted to any Member or Affiliate of any Member in connection with any sale or other disposition of such Excluded Property by such Member or Affiliate to an arms’ length third party.

(c) Subject to Section 13.2, the Acquiring Member shall or shall cause its Affiliate, as applicable, to contribute such Additional Rights, free and clear of all Encumbrances, other than Permitted Encumbrances and any other Encumbrances existing on the date of the acquisition of such Additional Rights by the Acquiring Member, to Nevada JV such that they will form part of the Nevada JV Assets for no additional consideration. The Members (or their respective Affiliates, as applicable) shall endeavour to close such acquisition of Additional Rights by Nevada JV as soon as practicable following the acquisition of such Additional Rights by the Acquiring Member. The Acquiring Member and the other Member shall, and, if applicable, shall cause their respective Affiliates, to cooperate with each other to effect such transfer and contribution of Additional Rights to Nevada JV in the most tax efficient manner reasonably practicable. Any such transfer of Additional Rights shall not be deemed to be a Member Contribution.

For greater certainty, such equity interests shall not constitute Barrick Contributed Assets or Newmont Contributed Assets.

(b) Section 13.1 does not apply to an acquisition by a Member or its Affiliate of an entity that owns Additional Rights if such Additional Rights are not the primary purpose of the acquisition and constitute less than 20% of the net asset value of such entity.

(i) the Member proposing to solicit, negotiate or enter into an agreement, arrangement, understanding or commitment in respect of the acquisition of control of the Acquisition Target (the “Purchasing Member”) shall first provide written notice of such intention to the other Member (the “Acquisition Notice”), which notice shall provide all relevant and available details regarding the Acquisition Target, the Additional Rights held by such Acquisition Target and the price and all other proposed terms and conditions on which the Member is proposing to acquire the Acquisition Target;

74

(ii) the Purchasing Member shall keep the other Member reasonably apprised of the status of the proposed acquisition of the Acquisition Target;

(iii) within 30 Business Days following the receipt of the Acquisition Notice, the Member receiving the Acquisition Notice shall have the right to elect that, if the Purchasing Member completes the acquisition of the Acquisition Target, Nevada JV will purchase the Additional Rights that form part of the Acquisition Target’s assets, free and clear of all Encumbrances, other than Permitted Encumbrances and any other Encumbrances existing on the date of the acquisition of such Additional Rights by the Acquiring Member, for a price, payable in cash by Nevada JV to the Purchasing Member, equal to the fair market value of such Additional Rights as determined in accordance with Schedule F. If this election is made the Members shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that Nevada JV purchases the Additional Rights on the terms set out herein as promptly as practicable following the closing of the acquisition of the Acquisition Target; provided, for certainty, that if no such election is made within such 30 Business Day period, then Nevada JV shall not purchase such Additional Rights; et

(iv) if any Member purchases an Acquisition Target without complying with the provisions of this Section 13.2(c), such Member shall contribute the Additional Rights to Nevada JV for no consideration.

If such Transfer to the third party transferee is not made within 90 days following the termination of the 60-day period provided for in Section 16.2(c), then a new offer must be made pursuant to the provisions of Section 16.2(a) before the offering Member can Transfer its Nevada JV Interests and the provisions of this Section 16.2 shall again apply to such Transfer.

(e) Closing. The closing of any sale and purchase of Nevada JV Interests between the Members pursuant to Section 16.2(c) shall be held at a time and place as is mutually agreeable to the Members. In the absence of such agreement, the closing shall be held at the office of the Operating Member within 30 days after the offeree Member has pursuant to Section 16.2(c) accepted the offer made by the offering Member. At the closing, the offering Member shall Transfer and deliver duly completed Transfers and the certificate(s), if any, for the applicable Membership Interest and shall assign any applicable Member Loans to the offeree Member or its designee, free and clear of all Encumbrances except as expressly provided herein and shall execute and deliver such other instruments, documents, certificates and opinions as the offeree Member reasonably deems necessary or appropriate to properly effect the Transfer of such Nevada JV Interests. Nevada JV shall, upon receipt of the Transfer documents and instruments, cause an appropriate entry to be made in the Schedule of Members to reflect the new ownership. All sales, stamp and similar Transfer taxes and expenses related to such Transfer shall be paid by the offeree Member.

(f) Applicability of Section 16.1. Any Transfer made pursuant to this Section 16.2 shall be subject to the provisions of Section 16.1.

16.3 Exempt Transfers.

Section 16.2 shall not apply to (i) a Transfer by Barrick Member or any successor of Barrick Member as to the Barrick Nevada JV Interests pursuant to this Section 16.3 to an Affiliate that is a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Barrick (a “Barrick Transferee Affiliate”), (ii) a Transfer by Newmont Member or any successor of Newmont Member as to the Newmont Nevada JV Interests pursuant to this Section 16.3 to an Affiliate that is a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Newmont (a “Newmont Transferee Affiliate”); provided that, in the case of each of clauses (i) and (ii), such Affiliate shall assume the obligations of the

81

Member and become a party to this Agreement in accordance with Section 16.1(b) or (iii) a Transfer to the State of Nevada or its designee by any Member that occurs as a result of an expropriation by the State of Nevada.

16.4 Loss of Affiliate Status.

(a) By Newmont Member or Newmont Transferee Affiliate. If Newmont Member or any Newmont Transferee Affiliate should at any time while it holds the Newmont Nevada JV Interests lose its status as a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Newmont, it shall promptly give notice thereof to the holder of the Barrick Nevada JV Interests if such holder of the Barrick Nevada JV Interests is a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Barrick. If within 30 days after the receipt of such notice, or at any time if Newmont Member or the Newmont Transferee Affiliate, as the case may be, fails to give such notice, the holder of the Barrick Nevada JV Interests (provided that such holder is a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Barrick) gives written notice (the “Barrick Re-Transfer Notice”) to Newmont Member or such Newmont Transferee Affiliate, as the case may be, demanding that the Newmont Nevada JV Interests be assigned or reassigned to a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Newmont, then Newmont Member or such Newmont Transferee Affiliate, as the case may be, shall forthwith Transfer the Newmont Nevada JV Interests to a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Newmont, which shall assume the obligations of Newmont Member or the transferring Newmont Transferee Affiliate, as the case may be, and become a party to this Agreement in accordance with Section 16.1(b). If such holder of the Barrick Nevada JV Interests fails to give the Barrick Re-Transfer Notice within 30 days after receiving notice from the holder of the Newmont Nevada JV Interests as above provided, it shall be deemed to have waived the right to give such Barrick Re-Transfer Notice.

(b) By Barrick Member or Barrick Transferee Affiliate. If Barrick Member or any Barrick Transferee Affiliate should at any time while it holds the Barrick Nevada JV Interests lose its status as a wholly-owned direct or indirect subsidiary of Barrick, it shall promptly give notice thereof to the holder of the Newmont Nevada JV Interests, if such holder of the Newmont Nevada JV Interests is a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Newmont. If within 30 days after the receipt of such notice, or at any time if Barrick Member or the Barrick Transferee Affiliate, as the case may be, fails to give such notice, the holder of the Newmont Nevada JV Interests (provided that such holder is a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Newmont Incorporated) gives written notice (the “Newmont Re-Transfer Notice”) to Barrick Member or such Barrick Transferee Affiliate, as the case may be, demanding that the Barrick Nevada JV Interests be assigned or reassigned to a wholly-owned direct or indirect subsidiary of Barrick, then Barrick Member or such Barrick Transferee Affiliate, as the case may be, shall forthwith Transfer the Barrick Nevada JV Interests to a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Barrick, which shall assume the obligations of Barrick Member or the transferring Barrick Transferee Affiliate, as the case may be, and become a party to this Agreement in accordance with Section 16.1(b). If such holder of the Newmont Nevada JV Interests fails to give the Newmont Re-Transfer Notice within 30 days after receiving notice from the holder of the Barrick Nevada JV Interests as above provided, it shall be deemed to have waived the right to give such Newmont Re-Transfer Notice.

16.5 Corporate Approvals.

The Members shall take, or shall cause Nevada JV to take, any actions as may be required to approve any Transfers of Membership Interests that are authorized in accordance with the provisions of this Article 16.

(i) all the Members agree in writing to terminate this Agreement;

(ii) Nevada JV is dissolved in accordance with Section 17.1(b); ou

(iii) there remains only one Member;

provided, however, that this Agreement shall cease to have effect with regards to any Person who ceases to hold directly or indirectly any Membership Interest or Member Loans pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of this Agreement save for any provisions hereof which, expressly or by implication, are to continue in full force and effect thereafter.

(b) Dissolution.

(i) The existence of Nevada JV shall be perpetual; provided that Nevada JV shall be dissolved, and its affairs shall be wound up, upon the first to occur of the following: (A) the Approval by the Board of a voluntary winding up or (B) the entry of a decree of judicial dissolution of Nevada JV under Section 18-802 of the Act. Except as provided in this Section 17.1(b)(i), Nevada JV shall not dissolve due to any circumstances described, or to which reference is made, in Section 18-801 of the Act.

(ii) The bankruptcy or other event described in Section 18-304 of the Act with respect to any Member will not cause such Member to cease to be a member of Nevada JV and upon the occurrence of any such event, the business of Nevada JV shall continue without dissolution.

(c) Winding Up by Liquidator. If Nevada JV is dissolved pursuant to Section 17.1(b), the Members shall procure a liquidator that is acceptable to each of the Members (the “Liquidator”), which shall wind-up the affairs of Nevada JV as follows:

(i) as promptly as possible after dissolution, cause a proper accounting to be made of Nevada JV’s assets, liabilities and Operations through the last day of the month in which the dissolution occurs;

(ii) pay all of the debts and liabilities of Nevada JV or otherwise make adequate provision for such debts and liabilities (including, the establishment of a cash escrow fund for contingent liabilities in such amount and for such term as the Liquidator may reasonably determine) to the extent required by the Act; et

83

(iii) then, by payment of cash or property, distribute to the Members such amounts or property as are required to distribute all remaining amounts or property to the Members in accordance with Section 8.1(b).

Upon completion of the winding-up of Nevada JV, the Liquidator or the Board, as applicable, shall (i) prepare and submit to each Member a final statement with respect thereto and (ii) file a certificate of cancellation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware and cancel any other filings and take such other actions as may be necessary to terminate Nevada JV.

(a) If any Member surrenders, relinquishes, Transfers or is divested of its Membership Interest, whether in accordance with provisions of this Agreement or otherwise, other than pursuant to Section 9.9 (any such event, a “Withdrawal”), then, unless otherwise agreed by the non-withdrawing Member in its sole discretion, the withdrawing Member shall be required to pay to Nevada JV, on demand by the non-withdrawing Member, an amount equal to the withdrawing Member’s share of funds required by Nevada JV to satisfy liabilities of Nevada JV to third parties for Continuing Obligations, whether such liability accrues and is payable before or after such Withdrawal, arising out of Operations conducted during the term of this Agreement but prior to such Withdrawal, if Cash Available to Nevada JV (without receiving additional Member Contributions) is insufficient to satisfy such liabilities as they come due. For purposes of this Section 17.2(a), such withdrawing Member’s share of such liability for Continuing Obligations (which liability shall be offset by the amount of funds in any reserve account established to satisfy such Continuing Obligations) shall be in proportion to its Proportionate Interest at the time such liability was incurred or when it accrued and, for that purpose, Continuing Obligations that are included in Newmont Assumed Liabilities or Barrick Assumed Liabilities, as applicable, shall be deemed to have been incurred by Nevada JV as of the date of this Agreement. The obligations of a withdrawing Member under this Section 16.2 shall extend to, and be enforceable by, only the non-withdrawing Member and shall not extend to or be enforceable by Nevada JV or any other Person.

(b) Any funds paid by a withdrawing Member to Nevada JV pursuant to Section 17.2(a) shall be dedicated to satisfying the applicable Continuing Obligations, and shall not be used by Nevada JV for any other purpose.

17.3 Right to Data After Termination.

After termination of this Agreement by written agreement of all Parties, each Member shall be entitled to copies of all information related to Operations during the term of this Agreement not previously furnished to it, but a Member shall not be entitled to any such copies after any other termination for any other reason.

A Party may change its address from time to time by notice to the other Parties.

18.2 Assignment.

No Party may Transfer all or any portion of its rights and/or obligations under this Agreement except in accordance with the applicable provisions hereof. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

18.3 Waiver.

Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, failure on the part of any Party to exercise any right hereunder or to insist upon strict compliance by any other Party with any of the terms, covenants or conditions hereof shall not be deemed a waiver of such right, term,

86

covenant or condition or limit the Party’s right thereafter to enforce any provision or exercise any right, power or remedy. No provision of this Agreement shall be construed to be a waiver by any of the Parties of any rights or remedies such Party may have against any other Party for failure to comply with the provisions of this Agreement and, except as expressly provided in this Agreement, no remedy or right herein conferred is intended to be exclusive of any other remedy or right, but every such remedy or right shall be cumulative and shall be in addition to every other remedy or right herein conferred or hereafter existing at law or in equity.

18.4 Amendments.

This Agreement may not be amended or modified except by a written instrument signed by all of the Parties, and Nevada JV shall be bound by any such amendment or modification. No Member shall be bound by any modification or amendment of this Agreement or waiver of any provision hereof unless such modification, amendment or waiver is set forth in a written instrument signed by each of the Members.

18.5 Force Majeure.

The obligations of a Party shall be suspended to the extent and for the period that performance by such Party is prevented by any event of Force Majeure; provided that the affected Party shall give notice to the other Parties promptly, but in no event later than 30 days after the suspension of performance, stating in such notice the nature of the suspension, the reasons for the suspension and the expected duration of the suspension. The affected Party shall resume performance as soon as reasonably possible. Any time period during which performance must be achieved and as to which such performance is delayed because of Force Majeure shall be extended by a period equal to the period of suspension. Notwithstanding anything in this Section 18.5 to the contrary, an event of Force Majeure shall not excuse any payment obligation of any Party hereunder.

18.6 Further Assurances.

Each Party shall take from time to time upon request of another Party, for no additional consideration, such actions and shall execute and acknowledge in form required by law for recording or registering with the proper Person and shall deliver to the requesting Party such notices, deeds or other instruments incorporating, referring to, or carrying out the provisions of this Agreement as the requesting Party may reasonably deem necessary in order to preserve or protect its interest under this Agreement or as may be reasonably necessary or convenient to implement and carry out the intent, provisions of and purpose of this Agreement.

18.7 Survival of Terms and Conditions.

Subject to Section 2.14(b), the provisions of this Agreement shall survive its termination to the full extent necessary for their enforcement and the protection of the Party in whose favor they run. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the following provisions of this Agreement shall survive termination: Sections 2.9 and 2.11; Sections 4.2(a)(ii) and (iii); Sections 9.1 through 9.4; Sections 9.5(c)(ii) and 9.5(d); Article 11; Article 14; Article 17; and Sections 18.1, 18.2, 18.3,18.4, 18.6 and 18.14.

87

18.8 Entire Agreement.

This Agreement, including all attached Schedules, and the Implementation Agreement contain the entire and final understanding of the Members and supersede all other prior agreements and understandings between the Members related to the subject matter of this Agreement.

18.9 Severability.

Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law. The validity of remaining sections, provisions, terms and parts of this Agreement shall not be affected by a court, administrative board or other proceeding of competent jurisdiction deciding that a provision, term or part of this Agreement is illegal, unenforceable, in conflict with any law or contrary to public policy. In such event the Parties shall undertake good faith efforts to amend this Agreement in order to replace such provision by a reasonable new provision or provisions which, as far as legally possible, shall approximate what the Parties intended by such original provision and the purpose thereof. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement shall require any Manager to act in contravention of the duties imposed on such Manager by applicable Legal Requirements.

18.10 Computation of Interest.

Where the accumulation of interest at the LIBOR Rate is provided for hereunder, such interest shall be determined for each full or partial calendar month in which interest accrues under any obligation to which it applies or any note or other instrument executed pursuant hereto, and shall apply to all interest obligations accruing in such month. The interest rate shall be determined monthly based upon the stated LIBOR Rate in effect on the first (1st) business day of each calendar month. As used in this definition, “business day” means a day on which the London and New York banks are open for business and on which a quotation of the LIBOR Rate may be obtained.

18.11 No Third-Party Beneficiary.

Except as specifically provided herein, no term or provision of this Agreement or the Schedules hereto is intended to be, or shall be construed to be, for the benefit of any Person, including any investment banker, broker, agent or creditor, and no such other Person shall have any right of cause of action hereunder. Without limiting the foregoing, any continuing liability of a Member pursuant to Section 17.2 shall extend to and be enforceable only by the other Member.

18.12 No Implied Covenants.

It is expressly understood and agreed that no implied covenant or condition whatsoever shall be read into this Agreement relating to Exploration, Development, Mining, production or marketing or to any obligation of the Members hereunder, or to the time therefor or the measure of diligence thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Member and Parent agrees that it shall act in good faith, and shall cause an Affiliate acting in its stead as Operating Member pursuant to Section 4.1(c) to act in good faith, in the performance of such Member’s obligations pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement.

88

18.13 Time is of the Essence.

A material consideration of the Members and the Parents entering into this Agreement is that the other Members will make all contributions and other payments as and when due and will perform all other obligations under this Agreement in a timely manner. Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement, time is of the essence for each and every provision of this Agreement.

18.14 Limitation of Liability.

Each Party waives any claim for incidental or consequential damages hereunder (other than incidental or consequential damages paid to a third party in respect of a third-party claim), including damages for lost profits or for the speculative value or development potential of the Nevada JV Business.

18.15 Counterparts.

This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by facsimile signatures, each of which when so executed and delivered shall be an original, but all the counterparts together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
