CONTINUOUS MINER MACHINE TRAPPED UNDERGROUND                                    
Shareholders are informed that there was a fall-of-ground at the company`s      
Umlabu/Mooifontein underground mining operations on 7 July 2011. Nobody was     
injured but the continuous miner machine was trapped underground.               
Various attempts have been made to recover the machine, but to date all         
attempts have failed. The recovery team is confident that the machine will      
be recovered before the weekend.                                                
Mining of the current underground section is nearing completion and             
consequently production lost to date is in the order of 7,820 ROM tons out      
of an expected 68,000 ROM production of both opencast and underground           
mining.  It is too early to determine the impact on future production.  The     
condition of the underground continuous miner machine will be determined        
once it is extracted.                                                           
The company`s open cast operations continue production as usual.
