Newmont Mining Corp. boosted its hostile takeover bid for Santa Fe Pacific Gold Corp. of Albuquerque to $2.2 billion in stock in an attempt to derail the company's proposed merger with San Francisco-based Homestake Mining Co. Santa Fe agreed Dec. 9 to be acquired by Homestake in a stock deal then valued at $17.42 a share, or $2.3 billion. But Homestake's bid of 1.115 of its shares for each Santa Fe share is now worth only about $15.05 a share, or $2 billion.
