DENVER, January 30, 2002 -- Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE: NEM) announced
that shareholders of Franco-Nevada Mining Corporation Limited (TSE:FN) voted
overwhelmingly today to approve Newmont's acquisition of Franco-Nevada, pursuant
to a Plan of Arrangement.

"We're extremely pleased with the unqualified support from shareholders of
Franco-Nevada," said Wayne W. Murdy, Chairman, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Newmont. "Franco-Nevada and its management team have done a terrific
job over the years and we are very excited about the attributes that
Franco-Nevada brings to Newmont," continued Mr. Murdy. "We remain on track to
complete our acquisition of Franco-Nevada and our concurrent acquisition of
Normandy Mining Limited (ASX: NDY) in mid-February to create the world's premier
gold investment vehicle."

Over 98.7% of the votes cast by Franco-Nevada shareholders were in favor of
Newmont's acquisition of Franco-Nevada on the basis of 0.8 of a share of Newmont
common stock (or 0.8 of a Canadian exchangeable share, each of which is
exchangeable for one Newmont share) for each common share of Franco-Nevada.
Franco-Nevada will apply to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice on February 1,
2002 for a final order approving the Plan of Arrangement through which the
acquisition will be implemented.

Completion of Newmont's acquisitions of Franco-Nevada and Normandy is subject to
certain conditions, including approval of certain matters relating to those
transactions at a special meeting of Newmont shareholders scheduled to be held
February 13, 2002, and acceptance of Newmont's bid for Normandy by holders of at
least 50.1% of the ordinary shares of Normandy (calculated on a fully-diluted
basis). Franco-Nevada's 19.8% interest in Normandy, which is committed to
Newmont's bid, will count toward this threshold. The directors of Normandy have
stated their intention to accept Newmont's bid in respect of all of the Normandy
shares that they own or over which they exercise control. Newmont's bid for
Normandy is currently scheduled to expire on February 15, 2002.

Newmont also announced today that it has received approval from the New York
Stock Exchange to list the additional shares of Newmont stock to be issued in
connection with these transactions, subject to official notice of issuance and
Newmont shareholder approval.

Although the Normandy Board, subject to its fiduciary duties, has recommended
Newmont's offer to Normandy shareholders, Normandy has not provided unqualified
assistance to Newmont in making its offer. Among other things, Normandy has
refused to provide Newmont with certain financial information, and it has not
permitted its auditors to issue a consent in respect of financial information
relating to Normandy.
