Thornton will remain as executive chairman, directing strategy and Bristow will be president and chief executive of the merged company, running day-to-day operations.
The company will be listed in NY and Toronto, which means that London will lose its biggest gold stock, but it will own five of the world's 10 lowest cost gold mines, producing more than 6.5 million ounces of the precious metal a year. Thornton will maintain his current title - executive chairman - of the New Barrick Group.
