Barrick said it has "reviewed the opportunity to merge with Newmont in an all-share nil premium transaction. No decision has been taken at this time."

The news came hot on the heels of Newmont merging with smaller Canadian peer Goldcorp in a stock-for-stock transaction valued at $10 billion, making the enlarged company the largest gold miner in the world.

The industry has been coping with shrinking margins and rising overheads.

A fund manager said the M&A activity was simply a race for reserves as gold mining becomes increasingly difficult and ore bodies shrink.

Speaking at a industry event earlier this year, Barrick CEO Mark Bristow said he saw more M&A happening.
