Advertisement 2 or If you are a Home delivery print subscriber, unlimited online access is included in your subscription. Activate your Online Access Now Article content Announcing Barrick’s results for the 2022 year and Q4, president and chief executive Mark Bristow said the company had always believed that discovering ounces was better than buying them at a premium in a sector where reserves and resources were diminishing. “Our continued success in not only replenishing but also unlocking significant value in our asset base shows the unmatched potential of our organic growth pipeline,” he said. Barrick returned a record $1.6 billion to shareholders in 2022 through dividends and share buybacks and has announced a further share buyback program of up to $1 billion for the next twelve months.1 During the past quarter, Moody’s upgraded the company’s long-term corporate credit rating from Baa1 to A3, making Barrick the highest-rated company in the gold mining sector. Advertisement 3 Article content A stronger Q4 operational performance, notably from Cortez and Carlin in Nevada, Pueblo Viejo in the Dominican Republic and Tongon in Côte d’Ivoire, contributed to annual gold production of more than 4.1 million ounces2 in a year impacted by infrastructural issues at Turquoise Ridge in Nevada and the replacement of the rock winder at Kibali in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Copper production from Lumwana in Zambia and Jabal Sayid in Saudi Arabia was well within guidance. In one of the most significant developments of the year, work has started on the development of the massive Reko Diq copper-gold project in the Balochistan province of Pakistan. Reko Diq is expected to double the size of the company’s copper production capacity when it is commissioned in 2028. Barrick owns 50% of the project, and will operate it, with the balance shared by the Government of Balochistan and three Pakistani state-owned enterprises. Advertisement 4 Article content Another major project, the expansion of Pueblo Viejo’s process plant and the establishment of a new tailings storage facility, also continued to advance. Bristow noted that despite the presence of over 4,500 additional construction workers on the site, the mill achieved a record throughput for the fourth successive year, with production well within guidance. Reserve growth has added more than 20 years to the life of this Tier One mine. On the exploration front, drilling across Barrick’s brownfields portfolio has confirmed significant growth potential at Dorothy and Greater Leeville in Nevada, Gara West in Mali, North Mara in Tanzania, and Jabal Sayid in Saudi Arabia. Greenfields exploration continues to deliver new opportunities across Barrick’s expanding global footprint. Advertisement 5 Article content “The past year has seen a further deterioration in geopolitics and the dawn of a new era of high inflation, high interest rates and high risk. In this period of global uncertainty, gold outperformed most asset classes. Barrick is the largest gold miner in the United States and in Africa. If you factor in the ounces produced under our management,15 we’re the largest in the world. We’ve been building our copper portfolio and when Reko Diq comes on stream it will lift us into the premier league of copper producers. Given these resources, our proven strategy and our global expertise, I believe the case for investment in Barrick is becoming increasingly compelling,” Bristow said.

Q4 Dividend Declared with Record Annual Returns to Shareholders in 2022 Barrick today declared of a dividend of $0.10 per share for the fourth quarter of 2022. The dividend is consistent with the Company’s Performance Dividend Policy announced at the start of 2022. The Q4 2022 dividend will be paid on March 15, 2023 to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 28, 2023. Advertisement 10 Article content In addition to the dividends paid in 2022, Barrick repurchased 24.25 million shares under the share buyback program that was announced in February 2022. As a result, $1.6 billion of cash was returned to shareholders through dividends and share buybacks during the year, exceeding the record $1.4 billion of distributions made in 2021. “On the back of the company’s continuing strong operating performance, through the combination of the performance dividend policy and share buyback program, we have once again provided shareholders with record annual returns,” said senior executive vice-president and chief financial officer Graham Shuttleworth. Barrick Announces New Share Buyback Program Barrick plans to undertake a new share repurchase program to buy back additional common shares. Advertisement 11 Article content Barrick’s Board of Directors has authorized a new program for the repurchase of up to $1.0 billion of the Company’s outstanding common shares over the next 12 months at prevailing market prices in accordance with applicable law. In connection with the new share repurchase program, Barrick has terminated the share repurchase program announced by the Company on February 16, 2022. The Company repurchased $424 million in common shares under its 2022 share repurchase program. “After the success of last year’s buyback program, this new program gives us a further opportunity to repurchase our shares when we believe that they are trading in a price range that does not reflect the value of the Company’s mining and financial assets and future business prospects,” said Mark Bristow, President and Chief Executive. “We continue to have the financial strength to undertake this program.” Advertisement 12 Article content Under the program, repurchases can be made from time to time through published markets in the United States such as the New York Stock Exchange using a variety of methods, including open market purchases, as well as by any other means permitted under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and other applicable legal requirements. Barrick believes that, from time to time, the market price of its common shares trade at prices that may not adequately reflect their underlying value. The actual number of shares that may be purchased, if any, and the timing of such purchases, will be determined by Barrick based on a number of factors, including the Company’s financial performance, the availability of cash flows, and the consideration of other uses of cash, including capital investment opportunities, returns to shareholders, and debt reduction. Advertisement 13 Article content The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular number of common shares, and the program may be suspended or discontinued at any time at the Company’s discretion. Significant Increase in Resources and Reseves Underpins Industry-Leading Production Profile Growth Barrick grew attributable proven and probable gold mineral reserves by 6.7 million ounces net of depletion in 2022, while maintaining grade despite an increase in the reserve price assumption. Reported at $1,300/oz16, attributable proven and probable mineral reserves now stand at 76 million ounces17 at 1.67g/t, increasing from 69 million ounces18 at 1.71g/t reported at $1,200/oz16 in 2021. Led by Pueblo Viejo and the Africa & Middle East region, Barrick has now delivered a second consecutive year of gold reserve growth over and above annual depletion, with nearly 12 million ounces17 of attributable proven and probable reserve gains in 2022 before depletion. Advertisement 14 Article content Successful exploration at both the Lumwana and Jabal Sayid mines drove the growth of attributable proven and probable copper reserves by 640 million pounds17, notwithstanding an increase in the annual reserve price assumption to $3.00/lb.16 As a result, Barrick replaced 103% of annual global depletion at consistent quality, effectively maintaining attributable proven and probable copper mineral reserves of 12 billion pounds17 at 0.38% in 2022. Total attributable gold mineral resources grew by nearly 10% relative to 2021, and total attributable copper mineral resources more than doubled, growing by 124% year over year, both net of annual depletion. This growth was driven by the successful completion of a preliminary economic assessment supporting the Lumwana Super Pit expansion, and the incorporation of Reko Diq following the reconstitution of the project in December 2022. Attributable measured and indicated gold resources for 2022 stand at 180 million ounces17 at 1.07g/t, with a further 42 million ounces17 at 0.8g/t of inferred resources. Attributable measured and indicated copper resources for 2022 stand at 44 billion pounds17 at 0.39%, with a further 15 billion pounds17 at 0.4% of inferred resources. Mineral resources are reported inclusive of reserves and for 2022, are based on a gold price of $1,700/oz16 and a copper price of $3.75/lb.16 Advertisement 15 Article content President and chief executive Mark Bristow said in a sector of diminishing reserves and resources, Barrick’s strategy of investing in organic growth through exploration and mineral resource management has replenished and delivered significant value within the company’s asset base. “While we continue to evaluate all new opportunities against our strategic filters, we have always believed that finding our ounces is better than buying them, and this year’s resource and reserve statement showcases the unmatched potential of our organic growth pipeline,” said Bristow. Mineral Resource Management and Evaluation Executive Simon Bottoms stated that basing the company’s reserve calculations at a price of $1,300/oz for gold16 and $3.00/lb for copper16 underpins our focus on quality assets. Advertisement 16 Article content “The substantial growth in our mineral resources lays the long-term foundation to potentially grow our current attributable production profile of approximately 5.5 million gold equivalent ounces19 per year to approximately 6.5 million gold equivalent ounces19 per year by the end of this decade, which would include production from Reko Diq and the Lumwana Super Pit,” said Bottoms. In Africa, the Tier One operations led the growth in 2022 reserves, where Kibali completed an updated underground feasibility study on the 11000 lode, delivering a 0.62 million ounce17 increase in attributable proven and probable reserves before depletion. Loulo-Gounkoto also delivered strong results replacing reserve depletion, which further extended the mine life by another year. Moving to Tanzania, the focus on underground expansion at Gokona in North Mara has delivered a 0.44 million ounce17 increase in 2022 attributable proven and probable reserves before depletion. Advertisement 17 Article content The Lumwana copper mineral resource base grew by 89%, net of depletion, relative to 2021. This follows the completion of the preliminary economic assessment on the Super Pit expansion that demonstrates strong potential for a Tier One Copper Asset12 and provides the basis for the ongoing pre-feasibility study. Within the Latin America & Asia Pacific region, Pueblo Viejo completed a pre-feasibility study for the new Naranjo tailings storage facility (TSF), adding 6.5 million ounces of attributable proven and probable reserves13,17 net of depletion, and extending the minelife beyond 2040. As a result, 2022 attributable proven and probable gold reserves for the region have increased to 27 million ounces17 at 0.97g/t from 21 million ounces18 at 0.83g/t in 2021. Advertisement 18 Article content The reconstitution of the Reko Diq project added an attributable 18 billion pounds of copper17 at 0.44% with 15 million ounces gold17 at 0.26g/t to indicated resources, and an attributable 4.6 billion pounds of copper17 at 0.4% with 3.7 million ounces gold17 at 0.2g/t to inferred resources. These mineral resources reflect only three porphyries (H13, H14, H15) as well as the Tanjeel deposit within the cluster of Western Porphyries. Alongside the ongoing feasibility study update, the team is also planning to evaluate further known porphyry occurrences within the mining lease area. In North America, the completion of pre-feasibility studies for the Robertson open pit project at Cortez, as well as a new pushback in the Hemlo open pit were significant contributors to reserve growth. As a result, Robertson’s maiden attributable proven and probable gold reserves are estimated at 1.0 million ounces17 at 0.46g/t. This represents a milestone for Cortez as a key source of oxide mill feed in the mine plan. Similarly, the new Hemlo open pit pushback is expected to commence in 2027 adding 0.86 million ounces17 of gold at 1.49g/t to probable reserves. Combined with other updates across the region, this results in the growth of North America attributable proven and probable reserves by 1.8 million ounces17 before depletion, with proven and probable attributable reserves for the region now estimated at 31 million ounces17 at 2.54g/t. At the same time, attributable gold mineral resources also grew significantly, supporting future potential reserve growth in line with our strategy to fully replace depletion for the region within a five-year period. Measured and indicated attributable gold resources increased by 2.8 million ounces17 to 73 million ounces17 at 2.16 g/t, from 70 million ounces18 at 2.22 g/t in 2021. Inferred attributable gold resources also increased to 17 million ounces17 at 1.8 g/t, from 16 million ounces18 at 2.0 g/t in 2021. Underground resource extension drilling at both Goldstrike and Leeville in Carlin were key drivers of this organic resource growth, as well as successful resource definition drilling at Goldrush and Robertson in Cortez, all of which support the potential for future reserve growth in this region. Advertisement 19 Article content Reko Diq Set to Transform Balochistan Reko Diq, which upon completion is expected to be one of the largest copper mines in the world as well as a major gold producer, will have an enormously beneficial impact on the remote and neglected province of Balochistan, and serve as a catalyst for increased foreign investment throughout Pakistan. The enormous mine, which will have a lifespan of multiple generations, is a partnership between Barrick, which owns 50% of the project and is the operator, the provincial government of Balochistan, which holds 25%, and three Pakistani state-owned enterprises, which share the remaining 25%. The shareholding structure is in line with Barrick’s policy of benefit-sharing partnerships with its host countries. Advertisement 20 Article content Barrick president and chief executive Mark Bristow says expanding its copper portfolio is one of the company’s key strategies and, in pursuing this, it considers the quality of potential assets in tandem with any risk factors in the jurisdictions that host them. “Barrick is highly experienced in developing and operating profitable mines in some of the world’s frontier regions, which also happen to hold the greatest potential for new discoveries. In Pakistan, we have been impressed by the support we have received from our partners and by the efficiency with which the project agreements have been executed in a transparent process reviewed by the country’s Supreme Court,” he said. “Reko Diq is a classic example of how mining can be at the forefront of the achievement of the United Nations’ Social Development Goals. It will transform the Chagai region by creating thousands of jobs and stimulating the development of the local economy. We have already started establishing the community development committees through which we’ll be identifying and investing in development projects, and have initiated a social baseline study. We’ve also entered into an agreement with the provincial government for the disbursement of social development funds and advance royalties, which will ensure that the people of Balochistan start reaping the rewards of Reko Diq even before it goes into production.” Advertisement 21 Article content Completion of the feasibility study is scheduled for the end of 2024 and first production is targeted for 2028. In line with Barrick’s local recruitment policy, a Balochistan native, Ali Ehsan Rind, was appointed as country manager and a project development team is being assembled, with preference given to people from the region. Africa & Middle East Region Shines Again Barrick’s Africa & Middle East region (AME) delivered another stellar performance in 2022, meeting its gold and copper production guidance and continuing to grow its gold reserves over and above their annual depletion by mining. Speaking to media at Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), president and chief executive Mark Bristow said the latest reserve replacement underpinned AME’s ability to maintain an approximate 2.2 million ounce15,20 annual gold equivalent production run rate for the next 10 years, with the potential to extend this well beyond that horizon.19 Advertisement 22 Article content “At the time of the merger with Randgold, the AME region had two Tier One mines. The newly proposed expansion that forms the core component of the ongoing Lumwana Super Pit pre-feasibility study has the potential to create another Tier One asset within the region, significantly increasing the mine’s production and extending the life by 40 to 60 years. In the meantime, the successful transition to owner mining is unlocking further value at Lumwana. In line with Barrick’s strategy, we are further expanding our copper portfolio and opening up exciting new frontiers through exploration and joint ventures in Saudi Arabia and Egypt on the back of our very successful Jabal Sayid partnership. The Tanzanian gold mines, North Mara and Bulyanhulu, continued building on the complete turnaround effected by Barrick when it took over their management in September 2019, maintaining Tier One production levels with a combined output of 546,576 ounces15 in 2022. North Mara is now Tanzania’s largest taxpayer and Barrick’s footprint in Tanzania has been expanded through the acquisition of the Tembo licence. Through successful exploration, the Tongon gold mine in Côte d’Ivoire extended its life to 2026 and we continue to pursue growth through exploration to extend this further. Advertisement 23 Article content At the Kibali gold mine in the DRC, the mine’s three hydropower stations, supported by its battery storage system, kept energy costs at less than 5 cents per kWh during the wet season despite higher fuel prices. Plans are underway to add solar power and additional battery storage to further increase renewable energy usage. AME’s estimated economic contribution to its host countries in 2022 exceeded $3.4 billion.15 Greening the Grid in Nevada Nevada Gold Mines (NGM) has committed itself to achieving a 20% reduction in carbon (CO2 equivalent) emissions by 2025. The reduction will be achieved through the construction of a 200MW solar power plant and the co-fire modification of the TS power plant which will enable it to use cleaner-burning natural gas as a fuel source. Advertisement 24 Article content The solar facility, which will cover 500 hectares with 544,908 modules, is expected to go into commercial production in the second quarter of 2024 and will supply 17% of NGM’s annual energy needs and reduce CO2 equivalent emissions by 254,000 tonnes per annum, an 8% reduction from NGM’s 2018 baseline. The TS power plant conversion project will cut an additional 526,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions per year, a 16% reduction from NGM’s 2018 baseline. Consistent with Barrick’s global policy of employing, partnering, and advancing host communities and countries, NGM partnered with three Nevada-based contractors and will domestically source over 90% of materials for the solar project. An engineering firm utilizing Nevada-based resources provided support for the design and permitting for the TS power plant conversion project. Advertisement 25 Article content Both NGM and Barrick have a strong focus on environmental management practices and are committed custodians of the unique lands, waters, flora, and fauna within the state of Nevada. These projects are key to Barrick’s roadmap targeting a 30% reduction in global emissions by 2030, while maintaining a steady production profile, with the goal of achieving net-zero by 2050. Loulo-Gounkoto Complex Continues to Deliver Value to Stakeholders Seventeen years after it went into production, Barrick’s Loulo-Gounkoto mining complex in Mali continues to demonstrate its value as a key socio-economic partner to the country. In 2022 it maintained its historically consistent performance by meeting its production guidance, solidified its long-term outlook and replaced its mined ounces for the fourth successive year. The initial development of a third underground mine at Gounkoto was commissioned and is on track to start ore production from stoping in the second quarter of 2023. Key geological structures within the Loulo district have indicated the potential for further discoveries. Advertisement 26 Article content Speaking to media at the mine recently, Barrick president and chief executive Mark Bristow said last year the complex contributed $260 million directly to the Malian economy in the form of dividends, royalties and taxes. Indirect contributions, including payments of salaries and to suppliers, totalled $570 million. “We continue to promote and develop our local partnerships, creating and contracting an all-Malian joint venture to mine the new Gara West open pit and engaging a Malian contractor to work with an international mining company on the pushback of the new Yalea pit. It’s worth noting that our strong partnership network has been a significant factor in enabling Loulo-Gounkoto to maintain an exemplary performance in the face of the many challenges recently experienced by Mali,” Bristow said. In line with Barrick’s GHG emissions reduction strategy, Loulo-Gounkoto is expanding its solar power plant by 40MW, targeting an annual CO2-e savings of more than 62kt. Since its commissioning in the third quarter of 2020, the solar power plant has cut emissions by 57,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions. All-Terrain Woman Pueblo Viejo heavy equipment operator Kimin Chonjo has become the first female Dominican to operate a DI650 drill in Central America and the Caribbean. Chonjo’s achievement was confirmed by Sandvik, the manufacturer of the DI650, which is a self-contained, track-mounted, down-the-hole, diesel-powered drill rig, designed for demanding, high-capacity, large-scale production drilling applications in surface mining and quarries. Born in the Dominican Republic, Kimin joined Pueblo Viejo in 2012 and is part of the Mine Operations team. When she started working for Pueblo Viejo, she enrolled in training programs, where she developed the skills and abilities to safely operate six different types of heavy machinery. “Being an operator and managing all this equipment fills me with great satisfaction and joy. I see myself as a warrior, showing other women that through Barrick I have the opportunity to be an all-terrain woman,” Chonjo says. Speaking Up to Stop Open pit superintendent Heather Dahlman has been recognized by her colleagues at NGM for courageous leadership. Dahlman received the Zero Harm trophy, part of the DNA Awards program at NGM, for recognizing that safety could be improved on a particular task and stopping work — even though the task was a high priority — to improve safety around the procedure. “For all of us at times, it can be intimidating to speak up,” says Dahlman. “But knowing it could save a life is what gives me the courage to do so, no matter what the job is. The Stop Unsafe Work Authority is the greatest tool that NGM can give us. I have the responsibility to progress safety and speak up when I see something happening — and I expect others to do the same and watch out for me. We are a team and we need each other in this journey.” Ladies Lead in Development Fourteen women employed across Barrick’s mines in the Africa and Middle East region have completed the Professional Management Development course at the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business. These women were selected based on their value-adding contributions in their respective field as well as on their future leadership potential. APPENDIX Mineral Reserves and Resources Endnotes Mineral reserves (“reserves”) and mineral resources (“resources”) have been estimated as at December 31, 2022 (unless otherwise noted) in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) as required by Canadian securities regulatory authorities. For United States reporting purposes, the SEC has adopted amendments to its disclosure rules to modernize the mineral property disclosure requirements for issuers whose securities are registered with the SEC under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). These amendments became effective February 25, 2019 (the “SEC Modernization Rules”) with compliance required for the first fiscal year beginning on or after January 1, 2021. The SEC Modernization Rules replace the historical property disclosure requirements for mining registrants that were included in SEC Industry Guide 7, which was rescinded from and after the required compliance date of the SEC Modernization Rules. As a result of the adoption of the SEC Modernization Rules, the SEC now recognizes estimates of “measured”, “indicated” and “inferred” mineral resources. In addition, the SEC has amended its definitions of “proven mineral reserves” and “probable mineral reserves” to be substantially similar to the corresponding Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum definitions, as required by NI 43-101. U.S. investors should understand that “inferred” mineral resources have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. In addition, U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of Barrick’s mineral resources constitute or will be converted into reserves. Mineral resource and mineral reserve estimations have been prepared by employees of Barrick, its joint venture partners or its joint venture operating companies, as applicable, under the supervision of Richard Peattie, Africa and Middle East Mineral Resource Manager, Chad Yuhasz, Latin America & Asia Pacific Mineral Resource Manager and Craig Fiddes, Manager – Resource Modeling, Nevada Gold Mines and reviewed by Simon Bottoms, Barrick’s Mineral Resource Management and Evaluation Executive. For 2022, reserves have been estimated based on an assumed gold price of US$1,300 per ounce, an assumed silver price of US$18.00 per ounce, and an assumed copper price of US$3.00 per pound and long-term average exchange rates of 1.30 CAD/US$, except at Zaldívar, where mineral reserves for 2022 were calculated using Antofagasta guidance and an updated assumed copper price of US$3.30 per pound. The Zaldívar joint venture is operated by Antofagasta. Subsequent to the publication of Barrick’s press release of February 9, 2023, entitled “Focus on Tier One Assets Delivers Significant Increase in Resources and Reserves, Underpinning Industry-Leading Production Profile Growth” Antofagasta updated their assumed copper price for 2022 reserves from $3.10 per pound to $3.30 per pound, which does not change Barrick’s 2022 reserves and resources estimates for the joint venture as originally disclosed on February 9, 2023 and set forth in the tables above. For 2021, reserves were estimated based on an assumed gold price of US$1,200 per ounce, an assumed silver price of US$16.50 per ounce, and an assumed copper price of US$2.75 per pound and long-term average exchange rates of 1.30 CAD/US$., except at Zaldívar, where mineral reserves for 2021 were calculating using Antofagasta guidance and an assumed copper price of $3.10 per pound. Reserve estimates incorporate current and/or expected mine plans and cost levels at each property. Varying cut-off grades have been used depending on the mine and type of ore contained in the reserves. Barrick’s normal data verification procedures have been employed in connection with the calculations. Verification procedures include industry-standard quality control practices. Resources as at December 31, 2022 have been estimated using varying cut-off grades, depending on both the type of mine or project, its maturity and ore types at each property. In confirming our annual reserves for each of our mineral properties, projects, and operations, we conduct a reserve test on December 31 of each year to verify that the future undiscounted cash flow from reserves is positive. The cash flow ignores all sunk costs and only considers future operating and closure expenses as well as any future capital costs. All mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates of tonnes, Au oz, Ag oz and Cu lb are reported to the second significant digit. Porgera mineral reserves and mineral resources are reported on a 24.5% interest basis, reflecting Barrick’s expected ownership interest following the implementation of the binding February 3, 2022 Commencement Agreement. The Commencement Agreement provides, among other things, for ownership of Porgera to be held in a new joint venture owned 51% by Papua New Guinea (“PNG”) stakeholders and 49% by Barrick Niugini Limited (“BNL”) or an affiliate. BNL is jointly owned on a 50/50 basis by Barrick and Zijin Mining Group and will retain operatorship of the mine under the terms of the Commencement Agreement. Efforts are ongoing to execute the remaining definitive agreements to implement the Commencement Agreement and finalize a timeline for the reopening of the Porgera mine and resumption of full mine operations. For additional information, see page 48 of Barrick’s Fourth Quarter and Year End Report 2022. Cortez underground includes 21 million tonnes at 7.27g/t for 4.9 million ounces of probable reserves, 29 million tonnes at 6.49g/t for 6.1 million ounces of indicated resources and 15 million tonnes at 5.9g/t for 2.8 million ounces of inferred resources related to Goldrush. As noted in endnote 9, mineral resources are reported on an inclusive basis. Reko Diq mineral resources are reported on a 50% interest basis, reflecting Barrick’s ownership interest following the completion of the transaction allowing for the reconstitution of the project on December 15, 2022. This completed the process that began earlier in 2022 following the conclusion of a framework agreement among the Governments of Pakistan and Balochistan province, Barrick and Antofagasta plc, which provided a path for the development of the project under a reconstituted structure. The reconstituted project is held 50% by Barrick and 50% by Pakistani stakeholders. Barrick is the operator of the project. For additional information, see page 9 of Barrick’s Fourth Quarter and Year End Report 2022. 2022 polymetallic mineral resources and mineral reserves are estimated using the combined value of gold, copper & silver and accordingly are reported as gold, copper and silver mineral resources and mineral reserves. Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral resources are reported inclusive of mineral reserves. All measured and indicated mineral resource estimates of grade and all proven and probable mineral reserve estimates of grade for Au g/t, Ag g/t and Cu % are reported to two decimal places. All inferred mineral resource estimates of grade for Au g/t, Ag g/t and Cu % are reported to one decimal place. Production and Cost Summary – Gold % These results represent our 61.5% interest in Carlin (including NGM’s 60% interest in South Arturo up until May 30, 2021 and 100% interest thereafter), Cortez, Turquoise Ridge, Phoenix and Long Canyon. Further information on these non-GAAP financial measures, including detailed reconciliations, is included on pages 71 to 89 of Barrick’s Q4 2022 MD&A. Includes our share of South Arturo. On September 7, 2021, NGM announced it had entered into an Exchange Agreement with i-80 Gold to acquire the 40% interest in South Arturo that NGM did not already own in exchange for the Lone Tree and Buffalo Mountain properties and infrastructure. Operating results within our 61.5% interest in Carlin includes NGM’s 60% interest in South Arturo up until May 30, 2021, and 100% interest thereafter, and operating results within our 61.5% interest in Phoenix includes Lone Tree up until May 30, 2021, reflecting the terms of the Exchange Agreement which closed on October 14, 2021. Starting in the first quarter of 2021, Goldrush is reported as part of Cortez as it is operated by Cortez management. Comparative periods have been restated to include Goldrush. As Porgera was placed on care and maintenance on April 25, 2020, no operating data or per ounce data has been provided starting the third quarter of 2020. With the end of mining at Buzwagi in the third quarter of 2021, as previously reported, we have ceased to include production or non-GAAP cost metrics for Buzwagi from October 1, 2021 onwards. Excludes Pierina, Golden Sunlight, Morila (40%) and Lagunas Norte for all periods and Buzwagi starting in the fourth quarter of 2021 as these assets are producing incidental ounces while in closure or care and maintenance. Lagunas Norte was divested in June 2021 and Morila was divested in November 2020. Gold cost of sales per ounce is calculated as cost of sales across our gold operations (excluding sites in closure or care and maintenance) divided by ounces sold (both on an attributable basis using Barrick’s ownership share). Production and Cost Summary – Copper Net earnings represents net earnings attributable to the equity holders of the Company. Further information on these non-GAAP financial measures, including detailed reconciliations, is included on pages 71 to 89 of Barrick’s Q4 2022 MD&A. Represents adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. Amounts presented on a consolidated cash basis. Project capital expenditures are included in our calculation of all-in costs, but not included in our calculation of all-in sustaining costs. Total consolidated capital expenditures also includes capitalized interest of $10 million and $29 million, respectively, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2022 (September 30, 2022: $8 million; 2021: $15 million). Represents net cash provided by operating activities divided by revenue. On an attributable basis. Gold cost of sales per ounce is calculated as cost of sales across our gold operations (excluding sites in closure or care and maintenance) divided by ounces sold (both on an attributable basis using Barrick’s ownership share). Copper cost of sales per pound is calculated as cost of sales across our copper operations divided by pounds sold (both on an attributable basis using Barrick’s ownership share). Consolidated Statements of Income 1 Includes cumulative translation adjustments as at December 31, 2022: $93 million loss (December 31, 2021: $94 million loss). 2 Includes additional paid-in capital as at December 31, 2022: $1,875 million (December 31, 2021: $1,911 million). The notes to these consolidated financial statements, which are contained in the Fourth Quarter and Year End Report, available on our website are an integral part of these consolidated financial statements. Technical Information The scientific and technical information contained in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Craig Fiddes, SME-RM, Manager – Resource Modeling, Nevada Gold Mines; Chad Yuhasz, P.Geo, Mineral Resource Manager, Latin America & Asia Pacific; Richard Peattie, MPhil, FAusIMM, Mineral Resources Manager: Africa and Middle East; Simon Bottoms, CGeol, MGeol, FGS, FAusIMM, Mineral Resource Management and Evaluation Executive; John Steele, CIM, Metallurgy, Engineering and Capital Projects Executive; and Rob Krcmarov, FAusIMM, Technical Advisor to Barrick — each a “Qualified Person” as defined in National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. All mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates are estimated in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. Unless otherwise noted, such mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates are as of December 31, 2022. Endnotes Endnote 1 The repurchase program does not obligate Barrick to acquire any particular number of common shares and the repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time at the Company’s discretion. Endnote 2 Endnote 3 “Realized price” is a non-GAAP financial performance measure which excludes from sales: treatment and refining charges; and cumulative catch-up adjustment to revenue relating to our streaming arrangements. We believe this provides investors and analysts with a more accurate measure with which to compare to market gold prices and to assess our gold sales performance. For those reasons, management believes that this measure provides a more accurate reflection of our Company’s past performance and is a better indicator of its expected performance in future periods. The realized price measure is intended to provide additional information, and does not have any standardized definition under IFRS and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. The measure is not necessarily indicative of sales as determined under IFRS. Other companies may calculate this measure differently. The following table reconciles realized prices to the most directly comparable IFRS measure. Further details on these non-GAAP financial performance measures are provided in the MD&A accompanying Barrick’s financial statements filed from time to time on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on EDGAR at www.sec.gov. Reconciliation of Sales to Realized Price per ounce/pound 2.92 Represents sales of $164 million and $597 million, respectively, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2022 (September 30, 2022: $152 million; 2021: $661 million; 2020: $648 million) applicable to our 45% equity method investment in Kibali and $nil and $nil, respectively (September 30, 2022: $nil; 2021: $nil; 2020: $nil) applicable to our 40% equity method investment in Morila up until its divestiture in November 2020 for gold. Represents sales of $91 million and $390 million, respectively, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2022 (September 30, 2022: $82 million; 2021: $423 million; 2020: $298 million) applicable to our 50% equity method investment in Zaldívar and $74 million and $275 million, respectively (September 30, 2022: $57 million; 2021: $305 million; 2020: $204 million) applicable to our 50% equity method investment in Jabal Sayid for copper. Sales applicable to equity method investments are net of treatment and refinement charges. Excludes Pierina, Morila up until its divestiture in November 2020, Lagunas Norte up until its divestiture in June 2021, and Buzwagi starting in the fourth quarter of 2021. Some of these assets are producing incidental ounces while in closure or care and maintenance. Represents cumulative catch-up adjustment to revenue relating to our streaming arrangements. Refer to note 2f to the Financial Statements for more information. Realized price per ounce/pound may not calculate based on amounts presented in this table. Endnote 4 “Adjusted net earnings” and “adjusted net earnings per share” are non-GAAP financial performance measures. Adjusted net earnings excludes the following from net earnings: impairment charges (reversals) related to intangibles, goodwill, property, plant and equipment, and investments; acquisition/disposition gains/losses; foreign currency translation gains/losses; significant tax adjustments; other items that are not indicative of the underlying operating performance of our core mining business; and tax effect and non-controlling interest of the above items. Management uses this measure internally to evaluate our underlying operating performance for the reporting periods presented and to assist with the planning and forecasting of future operating results. Management believes that adjusted net earnings is a useful measure of our performance because impairment charges, acquisition/disposition gains/losses and significant tax adjustments do not reflect the underlying operating performance of our core mining business and are not necessarily indicative of future operating results. Adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share are intended to provide additional information only and does not have any standardized definition under IFRS and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. The measures are not necessarily indicative of operating profit or cash flow from operations as determined under IFRS. Other companies may calculate these measures differently. The following table reconciles these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable IFRS measure. Further details on these non-GAAP financial performance measures are provided in the MD&A accompanying Barrick’s financial statements filed from time to time on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on EDGAR at www.sec.gov. Reconciliation of Net Earnings to Net Earnings per Share, Adjusted Net Earnings and Adjusted Net Earnings per Share Net impairment charges for the three month period and year ended December 31, 2022 primarily relate to a goodwill impairment at Loulo-Gounkoto, and non-current asset impairments at Veladero and Long Canyon, partially offset by an impairment reversal at Reko Diq. Net impairment charges for the prior year mainly relate to non-current asset reversals at Lagunas Norte. Acquisition/disposition gains for the three month period and year ended December 31, 2022 primarily relate to a gain as Barrick’s interest in the Reko Diq project increased from 37.5% to 50%. The year ended December 31, 2022 was further impacted by the sale of a portfolio of royalties to Maverix Metals Inc. and the sale of a portfolio of royalties by NGM to Gold Royalty Corp. Acquisition/disposition gains for the prior year primarily relate to the gain on the sale of Lone Tree. Significant tax adjustments in the current year primarily relate to deferred tax recovery as a result of net impairment charges; foreign currency translation gains and losses on tax balances; the Porgera mine continuing to be on care and maintenance; updates to the rehabilitation provision for our non-operating mines; and the recognition and derecognition of deferred tax assets. In 2021, significant tax adjustments primarily relate to deferred tax expense as a result of tax reform measures in Argentina, the foreign exchange impact on current tax expense in Peru and the remeasurement of current and deferred tax balances, the acquisition of the 40% interest in South Arturo that NGM did not already own, the sale of Lagunas Norte, the settlement of the Massawa Senegalese tax dispute and the recognition/derecognition of our deferred taxes in various jurisdictions. Other expense adjustments for the three month period and year ended December 31, 2022 mainly relate to a net realizable value impairment of leach pad inventory at Veladero, care and maintenance expenses at Porgera and supplies obsolescence write-off at Bulyanhulu and North Mara. The prior year was impacted by care and maintenance expenses at Porgera and a $25 million litigation settlement. Non-controlling interest and tax effect for the current year primarily relates to impairment charges (reversals) related to non-current assets. Calculated using weighted average number of shares outstanding under the basic method of earnings per share. Endnote 5 “Free cash flow” is a non-GAAP financial measure that deducts capital expenditures from net cash provided by operating activities. Management believes this to be a useful indicator of our ability to operate without reliance on additional borrowing or usage of existing cash. Free cash flow is intended to provide additional information only and does not have any standardized definition under IFRS, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. The measure is not necessarily indicative of operating profit or cash flow from operations as determined under IFRS. Other companies may calculate this measure differently. Further details on this non-GAAP financial performance measure are provided in the MD&A accompanying Barrick’s financial statements filed from time to time on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on EDGAR at www.sec.gov. The following table reconciles this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable IFRS measure. Reconciliation of Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow Endnote 6 Capital expenditures are classified into minesite sustaining capital expenditures or project capital expenditures depending on the nature of the expenditure. Minesite sustaining capital expenditures is the capital spending required to support current production levels. Project capital expenditures represent the capital spending at new projects and major, discrete projects at existing operations intended to increase net present value through higher production or longer mine life. Management believes this to be a useful indicator of the purpose of capital expenditures and this distinction is an input into the calculation of all-in sustaining costs per ounce and all-in costs per ounce. Classifying capital expenditures is intended to provide additional information only and does not have any standardized definition under IFRS, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Other companies may calculate these measures differently. The following table reconciles these non-GAAP financial performance measures to the most directly comparable IFRS measure. Reconciliation of the Classification of Capital Expenditures Endnote 7 Attributable capital expenditures are presented on the same basis as guidance, which includes our 61.5% share of NGM, our 60% share of Pueblo Viejo, our 80% share of Loulo-Gounkoto, our 89.7% share of Tongon, our 84% share of North Mara and Bulyanhulu and our 50% share of Zaldívar and Jabal Sayid. Total attributable capital expenditures for 2022 actual results also includes capitalized interest of $14 million. Endnote 8 Gold cost of sales per ounce is calculated as cost of sales across our gold operations (excluding sites in closure or care and maintenance) divided by ounces sold (both on an attributable basis using Barrick’s ownership share). Endnote 9 “Total cash costs” per ounce, “All-in sustaining costs” per ounce and “All-in costs” per ounce are non-GAAP financial performance measures which are calculated based on the definition published by the World Gold Council (a market development organization for the gold industry comprised of and funded by gold mining companies from around the world, including Barrick, the “WGC”). The WGC is not a regulatory organization. Management uses these measures to monitor the performance of our gold mining operations and its ability to generate positive cash flow, both on an individual site basis and an overall company basis. “Total cash costs” per ounce start with our cost of sales related to gold production and removes depreciation, the noncontrolling interest of cost of sales and includes by-product credits. “All-in sustaining costs” per ounce start with “Total cash costs” per ounce and includes sustaining capital expenditures, sustaining leases, general and administrative costs, minesite exploration and evaluation costs and reclamation cost accretion and amortization. These additional costs reflect the expenditures made to maintain current production levels. “All-in costs” per ounce start with “All-in sustaining costs” and adds additional costs that reflect the varying costs of producing gold over the life-cycle of a mine, including: project capital expenditures (capital spending at new projects and major, discrete projects at existing operations intended to increase net present value through higher production or longer mine life) and other non-sustaining costs (primarily non-sustaining leases, exploration and evaluation costs, community relations costs and general and administrative costs that are not associated with current operations). These definitions recognize that there are different costs associated with the life-cycle of a mine, and that it is therefore appropriate to distinguish between sustaining and non-sustaining costs. Barrick believes that the use of “Total cash costs” per ounce, “All-in sustaining costs” per ounce and “All-in costs” per ounce will assist analysts, investors and other stakeholders of Barrick in understanding the costs associated with producing gold, understanding the economics of gold mining, assessing our operating performance and also our ability to generate free cash flow from current operations and to generate free cash flow on an overall company basis. “Total cash costs” per ounce, “All-in sustaining costs” per ounce and “All-in costs” per ounce are intended to provide additional information only and do not have standardized definitions under IFRS and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. These measures are not equivalent to net income or cash flow from operations as determined under IFRS. Although the WGC has published a standardized definition, other companies may calculate these measures differently. Further details on these non-GAAP financial performance measures are provided in the MD&A accompanying Barrick’s financial statements filed from time to time on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on EDGAR at www.sec.gov. Reconciliation of Gold Cost of Sales to Total cash costs, All-in sustaining costs and All-in costs, including on a per ounce basis Endnote 10 Copper cost of sales per pound is calculated as cost of sales across our copper operations divided by pounds sold (both on an attributable basis using Barrick’s ownership share). Endnote 11 “C1 cash costs” per pound and “All-in sustaining costs” per pound are non-GAAP financial performance measures related to our copper mine operations. We believe that “C1 cash costs” per pound enables investors to better understand the performance of our copper operations in comparison to other copper producers who present results on a similar basis. “C1 cash costs” per pound excludes royalties and production taxes and non-routine charges as they are not direct production costs. “All-in sustaining costs” per pound is similar to the gold all-in sustaining costs metric and management uses this to better evaluate the costs of copper production. We believe this measure enables investors to better understand the operating performance of our copper mines as this measure reflects all of the sustaining expenditures incurred in order to produce copper. “All-in sustaining costs” per pound includes C1 cash costs, sustaining capital expenditures, sustaining leases, general and administrative costs, minesite exploration and evaluation costs, royalties and production taxes, reclamation cost accretion and amortization and writedowns taken on inventory to net realizable value. Further details on these non-GAAP financial performance measures are provided in the MD&A accompanying Barrick’s financial statements filed from time to time on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on EDGAR at www.sec.gov. Reconciliation of Copper Cost of Sales to C1 cash costs and All-in sustaining costs, including on a per pound basis Cost of sales per pound, C1 cash costs per pound and all-in sustaining costs per pound may not calculate based on amounts presented in this table due to rounding. Copper cost of sales per pound is calculated as cost of sales across our copper operations divided by pounds sold (both on an attributable basis using Barrick’s ownership share). Endnote 12 A Tier One Gold Asset is an asset with a reserve potential to deliver a minimum 10-year life, annual production of at least 500,000 ounces of gold and total cash costs per ounce over the mine life that are in the lower half of the industry cost curve. A Tier One Copper Asset is an asset with a reserve potential of greater than 5 million tonnes of contained copper and C1 cash costs per pound in the lower half of the industry cost curve. Endnote 13 A Technical Report to support the Pueblo Viejo mine life extension and process plant expansion project, including the pre-feasibility study for the new Naranjo tailings storage facility, will be prepared in accordance with Form 43-101F1 and filed on SEDAR within 45 days of Barrick’s press release dated as of February 9, 2023, entitled “Focus on Tier One Assets Delivers Significant Increase in Resources and Reserves, Underpinning Industry-Leading Production Profile Growth”. For further information with respect to the key assumptions, parameters and risks associated with the Pueblo Viejo mine life extension and process plant expansion project, the mineral reserve and resource estimates included therein and other technical information, please refer to the Technical Report to be made available at www.sedar.com. Endnote 14 Class 1 – High Significance is defined as an incident that causes significant negative impacts on human health or the environment or an incident that extends onto publicly accessible land and has the potential to cause significant adverse impact to surrounding communities, livestock or wildlife. Endnote 15 $21.00/oz i Except at Zaldívar, where mineral reserves and resources are based on Antofagasta’s price assumptions. For mineral reserves, the copper price assumption used by Antofagasta was $3.10 per pound for 2021 and an updated assumption of $3.30 per pound for 2022. For mineral resources, the copper price assumption used by Antofagasta was $3.60 per pound for 2021 and $3.75 per pound for 2022. For additional information on Antofagasta’s updated copper price assumption for 2022 reserves at Zaldívar see note 1 to the Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources Tables in Barrick’s 2022 Year-end MD&A. Endnote 17 Estimated in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects as required by Canadian securities regulatory authorities. Estimates are as of December 31, 2022, unless otherwise noted. Proven mineral reserves of 260 million tonnes grading 2.26g/t, representing 19 million ounces of gold, and 390 million tonnes grading 0.40%, representing 3,500 million pounds of copper.

Complete mineral reserve and mineral resource data for all mines and projects referenced in this presentation as of December 31, 2021, including tonnes, grades, pounds, and ounces, can be found on pages 34-47 of Barrick’s 2021 Annual Information Form / Form 40-F on file with the Canadian provincial securities regulators on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and the Securities and Exchange Commission on EDGAR at www.sec.gov. Endnote 19 Gold equivalent ounces calculated from our copper assets are calculated using a gold price of $1,300/oz and copper price of $3.00/lb. Barrick’s ten-year indicative production profile for gold equivalent ounces is based on the following assumptions: Key Outlook Assumptions 1.20 Barrick’s five-year indicative outlook is based on our current operating asset portfolio, sustaining projects in progress and exploration/mineral resource management initiatives in execution. This outlook is based on our current reserves and resources as disclosed in this press release and assumes that we will continue to be able to convert resources into reserves. Additional asset optimization, further exploration growth, new project initiatives and divestitures are not included. For the group gold and copper segments, and where applicable for a specific region, this indicative outlook is subject to change and assumes the following: new open pit production permitted and commencing at Hemlo in the second half of 2025, allowing three years for permitting and two years for pre-stripping prior to first ore production in 2027; production from the proposed Pueblo Viejo plant expansion and tailings project starting in 2023, in-line with guidance; Tongon will enter care and maintenance by 2026; and production from the Zaldívar CuproChlor® Chloride Leach Project (Antofagasta is the operator of Zaldívar). Our five-year indicative outlook excludes: production from Fourmile, Pierina, and Golden Sunlight, which are currently in care and maintenance, and production from long-term greenfield optionality from Donlin, Pascua-Lama, Norte Abierto and Alturas. Barrick’s ten-year indicative production profile is subject to change and is based on the same assumptions as the current five-year outlook detailed above, except that the subsequent five years of the ten-year outlook assumes attributable production from Fourmile as well as exploration and mineral resource management projects in execution at Nevada Gold Mines and Hemlo. Barrick’s five-year and ten-year production profile in this press release also assumes the re-start of Porgera, as well as an indicative gold and copper production profile for Reko Diq and an indicative copper production profile for the Lumwana Super Pit expansion, both of which are conceptual in nature. Endnote 20 Gold equivalent ounces calculated from our copper assets are calculated using a gold price of $1,300/oz and copper price of $3.00/lb. Endnote 21 Endnote 22 Endnote 23 Porgera was placed on temporary care and maintenance on April 25, 2020 and remains excluded from our 2023 guidance. We expect to update our guidance to include Porgera following both the execution of definitive agreements to implement the Commencement Agreement and the finalization of a timeline for the resumption of full mine operations. Refer to page 10 of Barrick’s Q4 2022 MD&A for further details. Endnote 24 Endnote 25 Operating division guidance ranges reflect expectations at each individual operating division, and may not add up to the company-wide guidance range total. Guidance ranges exclude Pierina which is producing incidental ounces while in closure. Endnote 26 Endnote 27 EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial performance measure, which excludes the following from net earnings: income tax expense; finance costs; finance income; and depreciation. Management believes that EBITDA is a valuable indicator of our ability to generate liquidity by producing operating cash flow to fund working capital needs, service debt obligations, and fund capital expenditures. Management uses EBITDA for this purpose. Adjusted EBITDA removes the effect of impairment charges; acquisition/disposition gains/losses; foreign currency translation gains/losses; and other expense adjustments. We also remove the impact of the income tax expense, finance costs, finance income and depreciation incurred in our equity method accounted investments. We believe these items provide a greater level of consistency with the adjusting items included in our adjusted net earnings reconciliation, with the exception that these amounts are adjusted to remove any impact on finance costs/income, income tax expense and/or depreciation as they do not affect EBITDA. We believe this additional information will assist analysts, investors and other stakeholders of Barrick in better understanding our ability to generate liquidity from our full business, including equity method investments, by excluding these amounts from the calculation as they are not indicative of the performance of our core mining business and not necessarily reflective of the underlying operating results for the periods presented. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are intended to provide additional information only and do not have any standardized definition under IFRS and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Other companies may calculate EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA differently. Further details on these non-GAAP financial performance me
