Barrick Gold Corp.(ABX,ABX.TO) announced preliminary first quarter production of 1.05 million ounces of gold, and 85 million pounds of copper, and preliminary first quarter sales of 1.07 million ounces of gold, and 85 million pounds of copper.

The average market price for gold in the first quarter was $1,329 per ounce, while the average market price for copper was $3.16 per pound.
