Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:ABX) is primarily involved in the manufacturing and sale of gold but the company also has its hands into mine development and exploration. The company also has operations for copper manufacturing most of which comes from Zaldivar and Lumwana mines. It also has a major role to play in the mining and production of nickel which is scattered across Africa. One of the reasons why the company has such a good reputation is because of the fact that it has so many operations and services to offer. The question however is whether all these operations are really giving the company as much revenue and also reflecting on the share values in the markers?
