Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses in Excess of $100,000 Investing in Barrick Gold Corporation to Contact the Firm -- ABX

NEW YORK, July 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Barrick Gold Corporation ("Barrick" or the "Company") (NYSE:ABX) of the August 5, 2013 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain executives.

A complaint has been filed on behalf of all persons who purchased Barrick publicly-traded stock between May 7, 2009 and May 23, 2013 (the "Class Period").

The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning business, operational, and compliance policies. Specifically, the action alleges that Barrick omitted material information regarding the cost and environmental impact of the Company's Pascua-Lama Project, which is located on the border between Argentina and Chile.

On May 24, 2013, the Company announced that it had received a resolution from Chile's Superintendence of the Environment, suspending the Pascua-Lama Project due to environmental problems and imposing a fine of approximately $16 million. Following this news, Barrick's stock priced dropped nearly 65% from its Class Period high.
