CEO of Barrick Gold Mark Bristow sits down with "Squawk Box" to discuss Barrick's proposal for a merger with Newmont Mining. Barrick Gold Corp put forth an unsolicited bid on the mining company. The merger, if approved, would come after years of stagnant gold prices, with futures trapped between $1,000 and $1,400 per ounce over the last several years.
