Barrick Gold, the world’s largest gold miner, expects to continue to increase dividends aggressively given the bullish outlook for gold, Chief Executive Aaron Regent said on Monday.

Over the last five years, Barrick has increased its dividend by about 170 percent, including a 25 percent boost last year.
