Barrick Gold has completed the sale of its 70% interest in the Spring Valley project and its 100% interest in the Ruby Hill mine to Waterton Precious Metals Fund II Cayman subsidiaries for $110m.
The sale is part of agreements signed by the company in November 2015 to sell its non-core assets in Nevada, US for $720m in a bid to reduce debt by $3bn this year.
Barrick Gold president Kelvin Dushnisky said: "As a result of the non-core asset sales we have executed this year, our portfolio is now much more focused on core mines that generate free cash-flow through the metal price cycle.
"We are also on track to meet our stated debt reduction target of $3bn for 2015, which, when completed, will represent a 23% reduction in total debt since the start of the year."
Barrick also signed agreement to sell its 50% interest in the Round Mountain mine and 100% of the Bald Mountain mine to Kinross Gold for $610m.
