First-year Barrick Gold (ABX) co-chairman John Thornton was paid $17M in 2012, including an unprecedented $12M signing bonus - one of many generous payouts ABX made to officers and directors last year, even though its stock price plunged 25%. ABX chairman Peter Munk takes a very hands-on role; Thornton is viewed as Munk’s likely successor, and is paid more like an executive than a director.
