10:03 EDTNG, ABXNovaGold plummets after Barrick raises doubts about gold deposit
NovaGold (NG) is retreating after Barrick Gold (ABX) indicated that it may not invest significant amounts of money in a gold deposit in which the two companies each have a 50% ownership stake. Barrick said that the Alaska-based Donlin gold deposit doesn't currently meet its investment criteria, primarily because of the large initial capital investment required to launch it. However, Barrick did add that Donlin represents a "valuable long-term opportunity," partly due to its long life mineral resources. Moreover, Barrick added that it would advance permitting activities at the site at reasonable costs, giving it the option to undertake construction there in the future. In early trading, however, NovaGold tumbled $1.67, or 31.04%, to $3.71. Barrick, meanwhile, sank $2.47, or 7.31%, to $31.32.

After The Wall Street Journal said Friday that talks between Barrick Gold (ABX) and Newmont Mining (NEM) about a potential merger had broken down, the news paper stated in an update last night that Barrick could decide as early as today whether it wants to pursue further discussions, citing a person familiar with the matter.
