TRANSACTION WITH TRONOX INCORPORATED                                            
Exxaro shareholders are referred to the announcements released on SENS on 26    
September 2011 and on 11 November 2011 relating to the proposed transaction     
between Exxaro and Tronox Incorporated ("Tronox"), which entails the combination
of Exxaro`s mineral sands operations with the businesses of Tronox under a new  
Australian holding company, Tronox Limited, in exchange for approximately 38,5% 
of the shares in Tronox Limited (the "Proposed Transaction").                   
Shareholders are advised that the remaining conditions precedent to the Proposed
Transaction that can be fulfilled prior to the completion date have been        
fulfilled, and the Proposed Transaction is expected to close on 15 June 2012.   
The company will list the Class A shares of Tronox Limited on the New York Stock
Exchange on 18 June 2012 under the ticker symbol TROX.                          
Upon completion of the transaction, Tronox Limited will employ approximately 3  
500 workers in 16 countries, including the United States, South Africa,         
Australia and the Netherlands.                                                  
FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS                                                      
This announcement contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of   
the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (a United States Act).     
Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts,        
including statements concerning the expected timing of the completion of the    
Proposed Transaction; the expected benefits and costs of the Proposed           
transaction; management plans relating to the Proposed transaction; the ability 
to complete the Proposed Transaction in view of the closing conditions that are 
to be satisfied on the completion date; the possibility that the Proposed       
Transaction may not be completed; any projections of earnings, revenues,        
synergies, accretion, margins or other financial items; any statements of       
operations, including the execution of integration plans; any statements of     
expectation or belief; and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the  
foregoing.  Any statement in this announcement that expresses or implies        
Tronox`s, Exxaro`s or New Tronox`s intentions, beliefs, expectations or         
predictions (and the assumptions underlying them) is a forward-looking          
statement.  Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks, uncertainties and
assumptions, including, without limitation, risks related to the timing or      
ultimate completion of the Proposed Transaction; the possibility that expected  
benefits may not materialize as expected; that, prior to the completion of the  
Proposed Transaction, Tronox`s business or Exxaro`s business may not perform as 
expected due to uncertainty; that the parties are unable to successfully        
implement integration strategies or otherwise realise the synergies anticipated 
for the Proposed Transaction; and other risks and uncertainties that are beyond 
the parties` control.  If such risks or uncertainties materialise or such       
assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from those  
expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements and assumptions.  The   
forward-looking statements contained in this announcement are made as of the    
date hereof, and Tronox and Exxaro each expressly disclaim any obligation to    
update or correct any forward-looking statements made herein due to the         
occurrence of events after the issuance of this announcement.
