Net sales revenue went up 23% to R33.5 billion (R27.3 billion) whilst operating profit shot up 647% to R5.1 billion (R0.7 billion). Profit attributable to owners turned around to R2.2 billion (loss of R1.2 billion). Furthermore, headline earnings per share jumped to 1 282 cents per share (285 cents per share).



Dividend

In accordance with the company's capital allocation framework to distribute a base dividend of 30% of headline earnings for each reporting period, the Board has declared an interim cash dividend of R3.74 per share, which is equivalent to a 30% headline earnings pay-out ratio or 3.3x dividend cover. The dividend is applicable to shareholders on the register on 10 August 2018 and payable on 13 August 2018.



Company outlook

Operational outlook

Due to a strong operational performance in H1 2018, Anglo American Platinum revises up its production outlook for the full year. PGM production guidance (metal in concentrate) will be 4.85 - 5.10 million PGM ounces (from 4.75 to 5.00 million ounces), including platinum ounces of 2.40 - 2.45 million ounces (from 2.35 - 2.40 million ounces).



Mogalakwena production increased in part due to the high-grade area mined in H1 2018. This will normalise to an annual average of 3.18g/t, resulting in a forecast production for 2018 of 1.15 million PGM ounces (around 480 000 platinum ounces).



Platinum refined production and sales volumes will be in line with production as the backlog of work-in-progress inventory built up will be refined by year end. PGM refined production and sales volumes will however be lower than production overall, as the 2018 stock count identified a loss of work-in-progress inventory, particularly impacting palladium and rhodium.



Financial outlook

The global economic outlook remains uncertain, with volatility in metal prices and exchange rates expected to continue. Management's efforts to reposition the portfolio, taking out loss-making ounces, implementing strict cost control and focussing on operational efficiencies should enhance margins and generate sustainable cash flow. Unit cost is expected to be inline with previous market guidance of R19 600-R20 200 per platinum ounce produced. Capital discipline will continue, with capital expenditure guidance remaining between R4.7 billion to R5.2 billion, of which R3.9 billion to R4.2 billion will be on sustaining capex to maintain asset integrity and meet compliance requirements.

Amplats announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Anglo Platinum Marketing Ltd. ("APML"), has subscribed for interests in two UK based venture capital funds (the "Funds"), with a total aggregate commitment of USD100 million (equivalent to c. R1.3 billion). Amplats?s commitment to the Funds is matched by a USD100 million commitment from South Africa?s Government Employees Pension Fund represented by the Public Investment Corporation SOC Ltd.



The Funds will be managed through an independent fund management business, AP Ventures LLP, led by two experienced former APML executives. The Funds have been established to invest globally in companies which support the development of innovative and competitive technological uses of Platinum Group Metals ("PGMs"). The first Fund will hold certain of APML?s existing investments which have been made under APML?s PGM Investment Programme (the "Programme"). The second Fund will be established to make new investments.



Developing the market for PGMs has been a long-standing strategic priority for Anglo American Platinum, having established the Programme in 2009. Through the Programme, Anglo American Platinum committed USD10 million, ring-fenced for local RSA beneficiation, to provide start-up capital to entities that use PGM-based technology in their products and processes. As the market developed, the Programme?s size and mandate expanded, adopting a direct funding approach to leverage networks and attract third party funding, making USD60 million of early stage and growth capital investments.



AP Ventures will invest in pioneering technologies and businesses harnessing the high-performance characteristics of PGMs to address global challenges such as renewable energy integration, resource scarcity and a growing population. This includes: hydrogen infrastructure; fuel-cell electric mobility; energy storage platforms; water purification; sensors; durable electronics; and medical devices.

As a result, the Transaction will complete on 1 November 2016, when Sibanye will take over ownership, control and management of the Rustenburg Operations in accordance with the Transaction agreements.



For reference, Anglo American Platinum?s shareholders are referred to the announcement released on 9 September 2015 announcing the agreement of the Transaction; the announcement released on 18 January 2016 confirming that Sibanye shareholders had approved the acquisition of the Rustenburg Operations; and the announcement released on 17 March 2016 confirming that the Transaction was approved by the Competition Authorities in accordance with the Competition Act.

Anglo American Platinum announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Rustenburg Platinum Mines Ltd. has signed an agreement to dispose of mineral resources within the Amandelbult mining right (the ?Resource?), and surface properties above and adjacent to the Resource, to Northam Platinum Ltd. (?Northam?) for a consideration comprising R1.0 billion in cash (the ?Proceeds?) and an ancillary mineral resource within Northam?s Zondereinde mining right that borders Amandelbult?s mining right and which provides the Company with flexibility for the placement of future mining infrastructure (the ?Transaction?).



The Resource comprises an area of Merensky and UG2 resources containing approximately 16.7 million 4E ounces and bordering the west side of Northam?s Zondereinde mine. Shareholders may view a map of the relevant area on the Company?s website, www.angloamericanplatinum.com. The Resource is long-dated and outside of Anglo American Platinum?s long term life-of-mine plans and therefore does not impact any current or future mining plans. The Transaction does not constrain the Company?s next generation options for the Amandelbult mine, which has a number of shallow and less capital intensive life extension options. The surface properties forming part of the Transaction will enable Northam to access the Resource.



In addition to the Proceeds, the Transaction consideration includes an ancillary mineral resource located on the north-west corner of the Zondereinde mining right. This area gives Anglo American Platinum flexibility for the placement of future mining infrastructure, including options for next generation replacement or expansion plans at Amandelbult. The Transaction is subject to the necessary consents being obtained from the Minister of Mineral Resources, including approval in terms of Section 102 of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act.

Anglo American Platinum advises that it has safely effected a shutdown of the furnace number one at Waterval smelter in South Africa, after a leak of molten furnace matte was detected from the furnace?s hearth on Saturday, 10 September 2016. All emergency procedures, including actions to safeguard all site personnel, were successfully implemented and no one was injured.



A preliminary assessment of the damage to the furnace has shown that a rebuild of the furnace should be brought forward, as the most prudent means of mitigating future potential operational risks. While the extent of the damage to the furnace has yet to be fully quantified, early indications are that the rebuild, and associated production ramp-up, is likely to take approximately three to four months to complete.



The company?s remaining smelters are operating at full capacity and consequently, smelting losses associated with this unplanned shutdown, will not be recovered during 2016. This furnace represents circa 20% of the company?s smelting capacity. As a result, platinum production for the 2016 financial year is expected to be impacted by between 70,000 and 100,000 platinum ounces.



There will be a build-up of concentrate stocks during the rebuild which will be released as refined metal in the future. The capital expenditure for the unplanned rebuild will be circa R125 million, resulting in total capital expenditure for the year to be at the upper end of our previously guided range of between R3.5 billion and R4.0 billion.



The company?s mining and concentrating activities are unaffected, therefore not impacting the previously guided range of produced (metal in concentrate) of 2.3 and 2.4 million platinum ounces.



Shareholders and key stakeholders will be kept updated on the progress of the rebuilding of the furnace and associated impacts.

Amplats will release results for the six months ended 30 June 2016 (?the period?) on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange News Service (?SENS?) on 25 July 2016.



Shareholders are referred to the Company?s trading statement released on SENS on 21 June 2016 in which the Company advised that headline earnings and headline earnings per share (?HEPS?) respectively for the period were expected to be at least 20% (R494 million or 189 cents per share) lower than for the comparative reporting period for the six months ended 30 June 2015 (?comparative period?) and that basic earnings and basic earnings per share (?EPS?) respectively for the period were also expected to be at least 20% (R489 million or 187 cents per share) lower than for the comparative period.



Following the end of the period, shareholders are advised that headline earnings and HEPS for the period are likely to decrease to between R745 million and R1,235 million (or between 70% and 50% lower than the prior year) and 285 cents and 470 cents per share (or between 70% and 50% lower than the prior year) respectively. This compares to headline earnings and HEPS of R2,471 million and 945 cents respectively reported for the comparative period.



Basic earnings and EPS for the period are likely to decrease to between R645 million and R1,130 million (or between 74% and 54% lower than the prior year) and 245 cents and 430 cents per share (or between 74% and 54% lower than the prior year) respectively. This compares to basic earnings and EPS of R2,444 million and 936 cents respectively reported for the comparative period.



The expected decrease in basic earnings and headline earnings is primarily due a higher inventory gain in the comparative period arising from the annual inventory count (equating to a gain of R1.6 billion or 599 cents per share post-tax) which was substantially higher than the inventory gain in the current period (equating to a gain of R424 million or 162 cents per share post-tax). In addition, basic earnings and headline earnings were negatively impacted by a decrease in dollar metal prices in the current period. Restructuring costs are similar for both reporting periods.

Amplats will release results for the six months ended 30 June 2016 ("the period") on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange News Service (?SENS?) on 25 July 2016. With reference to the listings requirements of the JSE, companies are required to publish a trading statement as soon as they become reasonably certain that the financial results for the period to be reported on next will differ by at least 20% from those of the previous corresponding reporting period.



Amplats advised shareholders, with reasonable certainty, that headline earnings and headline earnings per share (?HEPS?) for the six months ended 30 June 2016 will be at least 20% (R494 million or 189 cents per share) lower than the comparative reporting period for the six months ended 30 June 2015 (?the comparative period?). Headline earnings and HEPS for the comparative period were R2.5 billion and 946 cents respectively. Basic earnings and basic earnings per share (?EPS?) will also be at least 20% (R489 million or 187 cents per share) lower than the comparative period. Basic earnings and EPS for the comparative period were R2.4 billion million and 936 cents respectively.



The decrease in headline earnings and basic earnings is primarily due the stock take adjustment in the previous period which resulted in an after tax-tax gain of R1.6 billion or 599 cents per share, and a decrease in dollar metal prices which were partially offset by a weaker rand. The Company cannot yet quantify a specific range, and will release a further announcement once there is more certainty.

Amplats will release its results for the six months ended 30 June 2015 ("the period") on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange News Service (?SENS?) on 20 July 2015. Shareholders are referred to the Company?s trading statement released on SENS on 15 June 2015 in which they were advised that headline earnings and headline earnings per share (?HEPS?) for the period were expected to be at least 20% (R31 million or 12 cents per share) higher than for the comparative reporting period for the six months ended 30 June 2014 (?comparative period?) and that basic earnings and basic earnings per share (?EPS?) for the period were also expected to be at least 20% (R86 million or 33 cents per share) higher than for the comparative period.



Shareholders are now advised that headline earnings and HEPS for the period are likely to increase to be between R2,450 million and R2,480 million (or between 1,461% and 1,480% up on prior year) and 940 cents and 950 cents per share (or between 1,467% and 1,483% up on prior year) respectively. This compares to reported headline earnings and HEPS of R157 million and 60 cents per share respectively for the comparative period.



Basic earnings and EPS for the period are likely to increase to be between R2,400 million and R2,480 million (or between 459% and 478% up on prior year) and 915 cents and 945 cents per share (or between 458% and 476% up on prior year) respectively. This compares to reported basic earnings and EPS of R429 million and 164 cents per share respectively for the comparative period.



The expected increase in earnings and headline earnings is due to the improvement in operational performance following the protected industrial action in the comparative period, an increase in sales volumes and weakening of the South African Rand versus the US dollar, which was partially offset by sharply weaker pricing. In addition, the Company has increased its estimate of the quantity of inventory based on the outcome of the physical count of in-process metals, which resulted in an after tax-tax gain of R1,566 million (or 600 cents per share).

Business Day announced that Amplats called in Summit Financial Partners to assist employees who want to tackle debt concerns in order to fend off high salary demands and strikes. Summit will aim to reduce employee debt repayments to at least 50% of the employees net income while closely monitoring garnishee orders. Clark Gardner, CEO of Summit, said that since the launch of the program at Amplats, nearly to 2300 people have signed up for the program out of a possible 13 500. "We are creating a safer financial marketplace for the miners. The laws are ambiguous and poorly enforced," said Mr Gardner. "The country has a very weak record of accountability by the service providers, which are absolutely abusing the system and abusing the ignorance of financially illiterate employees". In January 2015, Amplats and seven of its employees launched a legal battle against salary deductions for outstanding debt, challenging a law firm and a debt administrating company, alleging that they practice "unlawful" overcharging.

Rustenburg Platinum Mines Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Amplats, (?RPM?) has issued a Section 189 (3) notice to relevant parties in terms of Section 189A of the Labour Relations Act, 66 of 1995, for the commencement of a consultation process on the proposed redesign of RPM?s organisational support structure that envisages a reduction of up to 420 mainly managerial and supervisory positions.



The proposed redesign takes into account the financial difficulties in the PGM industry and is a continuation of Amplats?s value-driven strategy. It aims to improve the Company?s financial sustainability by aligning the support structure with the proposed reconfiguring of operations into large, more efficient mining complexes benefiting from increased scale and less complexity. The reconfiguration will include the consolidation of mines with adjacent concentrator operations: Tumela Mine, Dishaba Mine and Amandelbult Concentrator will be consolidated and redesigned into the Amandelbult operation; and Mogalakwena Mine and Mogalakwena Concentrator into the Mogalakwena operation.



In addition, the regional functional centres in Rustenburg, Amandelbult and Polokwane will be closed and their functions incorporated into the adjacent operations and Corporate Office. As these measures may lead to job losses, the Company will be offering voluntary severance packages and will introduce comprehensive support measures to limit the impact of the proposed restructuring on affected employees. The 60 day consultation process is anticipated to end on 22 August 2015.



The proposed restructuring excludes the Company?s Rustenburg and Union Mine operations that are earmarked for disposal. Employees assigned to these operations have been ring- fenced and are protected from the Section 189 process. In addition to the anticipated reduction in support staff, the Company is seeking to further substantially reduce indirect costs allocated to the operations.

Amplats first quarter production report period 01 January 2015 to 31 March 2015

Overview

*Tragically, one fatality occurred at the Twickenham project in Q1 2015

*Group equivalent refined platinum production increased to 536 koz, up 50% over the strike affected Q1 2014

*Mogalakwena production increased to 100 koz, a 13% increase due to improved mining performance, recoveries and higher grades

*Refined platinum production increased by 25% to 542 koz compared to the strike affected Q1 2014



Operations

Amplats tragically suffered one fatality at the Twickenham project. On 26 January 2015, Mr Michael Malesa was fatally injured when he was struck by a utility vehicle. We are investigating the circumstances which led to this tragic event and will implement the necessary remedial actions to prevent a repeat, as we continue our journey to reach a target of zero harm. The Lost time Injury Frequency Rate (?LTIFR?) per 200,000 hours at managed operations for the quarter was 0.97, marginally higher than the normalised LTIFR (adjusting for the strike) of 0.95 for 2014.



Total equivalent refined platinum production (equivalent ounces are mined ounces expressed as refined ounces) increased by 50% to 536 koz, compared to 357 koz in Q1 2014 which was impacted by the industrial action. Production at Rustenburg (106 koz) continued on the strong momentum as seen in Q4 2014, but Amandelbult (81 koz) and Union (32 koz) were impacted in the quarter due to Section 54 safety stoppages. The first quarter of the year has less working shifts than the final quarter and therefore production was marginally lower than the fourth quarter of 2014.



Mogalakwena had another strong production performance, increasing 13% to 100 koz, due to improved mining performance, recoveries and higher grades.



Production from the Joint Venture and Associate operations (mined and purchased) decreased by 6% to 172 koz compared to 183 koz in Q1 2014. Production was impacted at Bafokeng-Rasimone Platinum Mine (BRPM) due to a fatal incident at the BRPM North Shaft and at Kroondal due to Section 54 safety stoppages at the mine.



Refined platinum production increased by 25% to 542,400 ounces, following the industrial action in Q1 2014. Refined palladium and rhodium increased for similar reasons. The mix of metals has returned to normal compositions as all mines are now producing around normal production rates.

Net sales revenue grew to R55.6 billion (R52.4 billion). Operating profit was lower at R843 million (R2 biillion). Profit attributable to owners was at R624 million (loss of R1.4 billion). In addition, headline earnings per share was lower at 301cps (566cps).



Outlook

Despite short-term volatility in the market, all indications suggests that platinum is in its strongest position since 2005. The cumulative oversupply from 2006 has been eliminated in the past three years, and signs point to demand increasing. Supply is unlikely to increase materially in the next few years, and this could lead to an increase in the price for platinum and palladium. We are now in a position to focus on value and not volume and will continue to reduce costs and improve operating efficiencies. By repositioning our portfolio and exiting the assets that no longer fit the future strategy, we can optimise our business and grow at the appropriate time.



Board changes

As was announced previously, Finance Director, Mr Bongani Nqwababa resigned on 29 September 2014. Mr Nqwababa will continue in his role until 28 February 2015. Mr Ian Botha has been appointed as the incoming Finance Director and will commence his role on 1 May 2015. Mr Botha joins the Company from his current role as Group Financial Controller at Anglo American plc based in London.

Anglo American Platinum Operational Performance and Anglo American Investor Day



Amplats announced that despite the challenging labour environment, underlying operational performance has improved for key assets this year (excluding the strike impacted period). Following the quick and successful ramp-up, the Company will likely deliver 1.8 million platinum ounces, at the upper end of guidance provided in Q3 for FY2014. Production guidance will increase to between 2.3-2.4 million platinum ounces in 2015, 2.4-2.5 million platinum ounces in 2016 and 2.5-2.6 million platinum ounces in 2017 primarily due to the commencement of production from Styldrift, our joint venture with Royal Bafokeng Platinum, anticipated increase in purchase of concentrate from third party projects, and productivity improvements at own productions.



Operational performance at Mogalakwena remains a highlight, with the business improvement plans delivering sterling results. Average daily tonnes mined at Mogalakwena for Q4 2014 increased to 297 tonnes, a 79% increase compared to the average daily tonnes mined in Q1 2013. As a result Mogalakwena should meet production guidance of 350 koz for FY14 (including c.20 koz of production from Baobab).



The repositioning of the portfolio remains ongoing with the disposal process for Union and Rustenburg underway. Pre-marketing for Union has commenced and the Company is finalising preparations for Rustenburg as a sustainable and standalone business.



Further information will be provided at the Anglo American plc Investor Day, where Chris Griffith, CEO will present as part of the Anglo American leadership team. The presentation for investors and analysts will provide a detailed update on Anglo American's operational turnaround and the next phase of transformation to position the business to outperform by realising its full potential and delivering enhanced and sustainable returns to shareholders.

Platinum producers Amplats, Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd. ("Implat") and Lonmin Plc ("Lonmin") note that the talks facilitated by the Minister of Mineral Resources have unfortunately been dissolved without an outcome. An Inter-Governmental Technical Task Team, with representatives from the departments of Mineral Resources, Labour and National Treasury was set up by the Minister on 28 May 2014, in an effort to resolve the platinum wage strike, now in its 21st week.



The companies thank the Minister of Mineral Resources, Advocate Ngoako Ramathlodi, and Deputy Minister, Mr Godfrey Oliphant, and members of the Inter-Governmental Technical Task Team for their initiatives and efforts. During this process the producers have sought to arrive at a fair and sustainable settlement that would preserve the future of the platinum industry and limit job losses in the country. While the producers remain committed to a negotiated settlement, they will now review further options available to them. To date, the producers have forfeited earnings of R21.7 billion, while employees have forfeited wages of around R9.6 billion.

(Official Notice)
Amplats ("the company") announced that the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa ("NUMSA") has accepted the terms of the company's wage offer and ended a peaceful wage negotiation process by signing an agreement with the company today.



The offer, which was accepted in December 2013 by the National Union of Mineworkers ("NUM") and the United Association of South Africa ("UASA"), will be applied to all employees in the NUMSA bargaining unit. The agreement stipulates the wages and other conditions of employment for operational employees for the period 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2015 and equates to wage increases of:

* 8.5% per annum increase for A to B2 employees

* 8% per annum increase for B3 to B7 employees

* 7.5% per annum increase for C to D1 employees

* From Year 2, an 8% increase for all employees



The industrial action by the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union ("AMCU") is on-going and the company is working towards reaching a solution that is affordable and satisfies all stakeholders. The company acknowledges the revised wage demands by AMCU but these remain unaffordable. The increases on offer are already significantly above the current inflation rate and therefore the company encourages AMCU to also accept the current offer.
05-Mar-2014
(Official Notice)
Amplats confirms that talks between the platinum sector and the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union ("AMCU") that have been facilitated by the Commission for Conciliation Mediation and Arbitration ("CCMA") have been suspended indefinitely to allow stakeholders time to reflect the current offer.



Amplats notes the revised AMCU wage demand to achieve a R12 500 basic salary for the lowest paid workers over a period of four years. This revised wage demand translates into an average annual increase of 29% and remains unaffordable. The Company maintains that AMCU's revised offer remains significantly above inflation and a further increase is not sustainable.



Amplats's current offer takes into consideration the prevailing industry conditions and the sustainability of the company. The offer is as follows:

* Year 1: 9.0% for A-level (the lowest paid employees), 8.5% for B-level and 7.5% for C-level

* Year 2: 8.0% for A-level, 7.5% for B-level and 7.0% for C-level

* Year 3: 7.5% for A-level, 7.5% for B-level and 7.0% for C-level



These increases are already significantly above the current 5.4% inflation rate. The Company remains of the view that the current offer is fair and reasonable, and therefore encourages AMCU to accept the offer. The industrial action at Amplats's Rustenburg, Union and Amandelbult operations has entered into its seventh week, and the Company has lost approximately 4 000 platinum ounces of daily production, translating into R100 million of revenue value per day. All the Company's Process operations, Mogalakwena mine and the majority of JV operations continue to operate normally.



Amplats remains in constant communication with all stakeholders to ensure they remain fully informed of the situation. The situation on the ground is calm and the Company continues to encourage all employees participating in the strike to respect their fellow colleagues' right to work. Amplats thanks all stakeholders involved in the facilitation of the wage negotiations to date including the Government, the CCMA, and our fellow platinum producers, for their efforts in trying to establish a sustainable solution for the industry.

Anglo American Platinum Ltd is currently finalising its results for the year ended 31 December 2013 (the period), which will be released on SENS on 3 February 2014. Headline earnings per share (HEPS) for the period is expected to increase to a profit of between 480 cents and 590 cents from a loss of 562 cents reported for the year ended 31 December 2012 (the comparative period). The increase in HEPS is primarily due to higher sales volumes and a favourable Rand/US dollar exchange rate. This was partially off-set by weaker US dollar metals prices and one-off restructuring costs amounting to R1,457 million (after-tax R1,049 million, equivalent to 402 cents per share) and a higher effective tax rate resulting from an additional provision for tax in respect of prior years.



Basic earnings per share (EPS) for the period is expected to improve to a loss of between 495 cents and 605 cents from a loss of 2,558 cents for the comparative period. Basic earnings for the period include one-off items including a R2 814 million (after-tax R2 026 million, equivalent to 776 cents per share) write down in the carrying value of various projects and other assets as a result of the implementation of the restructuring plans; and the loss on the acquisition of properties amounting to R833 million related to the Atlatsa Resources Corporation (Atlatsa) refinancing transaction. There was no tax impact arising on the loss on acquisition of properties. The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed and reported on by Anglo American Platinum Ltd's external auditors.

Amplats confirmed that the company has received notification from the Association of Construction and Mineworkers Union (AMCU) of the union's intention to embark on a legal strike with effect from Thursday, 23 January 2014.



Amplats and AMCU have been engaged in negotiations since last year, but despite attempts to come to a sustainable agreement on wages and other conditions of employment, have not been able to reach a solution acceptable to both parties. Amplats also remains in negotiations with the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA).



Amplats signed a two-year wage agreement in December 2013 with the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and with UASA (United Association of South Africa) effective from 1st July 2013. The agreement guarantees that the minimum wage increase over the two years will be between 7.5%-8.5% for first year, and 8.0% in the second year.



The company will engage with relevant authorities for a peaceful strike and encourages all employees who are participating in the strike to respect their fellow colleagues' right to report to work.

Quarterly highlights:

*Regrettably 4 employees lost their lives in Q3 2013

*Mining operations at Khomanani mine and Khuseleka 2 shaft were successfully suspended and integrated into surrounding operations as at 19 August 2013 as part of the implementation of the restructuring plan

*Group equivalent refined platinum production was up 5% from 595 koz in Q2 2013 to 623 koz in Q3 2013

*Equivalent refined platinum production from own mines, including the Western Limb Tailings Retreatment Plant (WLTR), of 406 koz, down 5% from 426 koz in Q3 2012

*Record quarterly performance in the history of the Joint Venture portfolio at 199 koz, up 9% year on year



Guidance for the remainder of 2013

In July 2013, we guided to the market that our production target for 2013 would be 2.3 million platinum ounces. This guidance remains in place notwithstanding the industrial action. As a result of restructuring of the company, our short to medium term forecast production will remain at 2.2Moz to 2.4Moz.



Angloplat's cash operating cost for Q3 2013 of R17 381 was in line with guidance for the full year of R17 000 per equivalent refined platinum ounce, but will likely be impacted in Q4 2013 by the restructuring, industrial action and the outcome of the wage negotiations.

AMCU notified the Company that its members would commence with strike action from Friday, 27 September 2013 in opposition to the retrenchment notices issued by the Company.



In January 2013, the Company announced its proposals to create a sustainable, competitive and profitable platinum business for the long term benefit of all its stakeholders. Following the announcement of its proposals, the Company engaged in extensive consultations with its recognised unions which saw a very significant reduction in the number of impacted employees from 14 000 originally proposed to approximately 6000.



Retrenchment avoidance measures like redeployment into vacancies across the group, voluntary severance separation and early retirements have resulted in the number of employees to be retrenched coming down to 3 300.



Amplats has been actively working with key stakeholders to co-create a Social Impact Mitigation Plan (SIMP) to reduce impact to the retrenched employees.



The Company confirms that it's AMCU affiliated employees in Rustenburg and the North of the Pilanesburg have embarked on a legal strike and is reporting a less than 20% attendance throughout its Rustenburg and the North of the Pilanesburg mining operations. All the Company's Process operations are operating normally. Production will be impacted by the strike action although sales will not be impacted at this point.



Amplats is monitoring the situation and working closely with local authorities to ensure that there is peace and stability during the strike. The Company has engaged AMCU on the picketing rules to ensure a peaceful strike action. The Company confirms that the strike is legal for AMCU affiliated employees only and not for NUM, NUMSA and UASA members. The no-work no-pay principle will apply to employees who are not back at work by the next shift.

Anglo American Platinum Ltd. ("Amplats") has concluded consultations with key stakeholders and unions on the plans to restructure its business. In January, the company announced its proposals to reduce costs and reconfigure marginal operations following an extensive review of its business which commenced in February 2012. The review is aimed at restoring the company's profitability to ensure its long-term sustainability and increase its competitiveness in the global platinum mining industry.



Following the consultation with the Department of Mineral Resources and recognised unions in a process facilitated by the CCMA, the company will be proceeding with the implementation of its plans which are:

*baseline production to 2.2 - 2.4 million Platinum ounces per annum in the short to medium term;

*consolidating the Rustenburg operations into three operating mines by integrating the Khuseleka 2 and Khomanani 1 and 2 mines into the surrounding mines. Khuseleka 1 will remain operational. The rationalisation and reconfiguration of marginal operations will result in a reduction in production capacity of approximately 250 000 ounces per annum and by an additional approximately 100 000 ounces per annum in the medium term;

*consolidation of Union North and South Mines into one mine. The disposal of the mine is still planned to take place in due course;

*reducing overhead costs and improving efficiencies;

*As previously communicated, the number of operational jobs that are affected is approximately 6 000. In addition, approximately 900 corporate and overhead employees will also be affected. However, the ultimate number of retrenchments will depend on the conclusion of the retrenchment avoidance measures; which include voluntary severance packages, early retirement, redeployments and the filling of internal vacancies.

Amplats results for the six months ended 30 June 2013 ("the period") will be released on SENS on or about 22 July 2013. Headline earnings per share ("HEPS") for the period is expected to increase to between 480 cents and 535 cents from 273 cents reported for the six months ended 30 June 2012 ("the comparative period"). The expected increase in HEPS is largely attributable to a weaker average exchange rate of the Rand against the Dollar and higher sales volumes, partially offset by the impact of higher costs and lower realised dollar metal prices.



Basic earnings per share for the period are expected to increase to between 450 cents and 486 cents from a loss of 178 cents for the comparative period. Basic earnings for the comparative period includes an after tax once off loss of R1.2 billion (455 cents per share) resulting from the write-down of certain investments as well as certain projects and assets, that were considered uneconomical.

Workers Committee members are contesting NUM's legitimacy at the mine and demanding that NUM vacate its offices. The company is currently in the process of validating union membership at Rustenburg and the mines north of the Pilanesburg.



A total of nine employees were injured when rubber bullets were fired by Amplats security personnel. As they were attempting to evacuate the NUM shop stewards who were trapped in their offices, three security personnel sustained minor injuries during this incident. All 12 injured employees received medical attention for non-life threatening injuries. No one was fatally injured during this incident.



Amplats expresses its deep concern about this incident and appeals for its employees to remain calm and respect the company's dispute resolution process.

Business Day reported that Amplats' Zimbabwean mine Unki raised production by 20% to 62 100oz in 2012 from 51 700oz in 2011. The results for Unki showed that the mine "narrowly" missed its 65 000oz target because of escalating costs. Unki plans to expand operations in Zimbabwe and open a new USD400 million mine, amid rumours that the company is in talks with Aquarius Platinum Ltd.'s and Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd.'s Mimosa mine to form a joint venture.

Amplats is currently finalising its results for the year ended 31 December 2012 ("the period"), which will be released on SENS on or about 4 February 2013.



Headline earnings per share ("HEPS") for the period is expected to decrease to a loss of between 491 cents and 628 cents from a profit of 1 365 cents reported for the year ended 31 December 2011 ("the comparative period").



The expected decrease in HEPS is primarily due to lower sales volumes and lower realised prices during 2012. Platinum sales volumes for the period were lower primarily due to the two-month illegal industrial action experienced during the second half of 2012. As a result of the illegal industrial action, the initial safety suspension and the ramp up period, which commenced 16 November 2012, total lost equivalent refined platinum production, including from joint ventures and associates, amounted to 306 koz. The losses in production resulted in an increase in unit cash operating cost in 2012, due to the retained fixed cost base which further negatively impacted on HEPS for the period.



Basic earnings per share for the period is expected to decrease to a loss of between 2 487 cents and 2 624 cents from a profit of 1 374 cents for the comparative period. Basic earnings for the period includes losses of R463 million resulting from the revaluation of certain investments and R6 606 million (after-tax R4 756 million) for the write down in the carrying value of various projects and other assets, not in use, that are considered not economically viable in the current market environment.

Amplats confirmed that operations at its Rustenburg, Union and Amandelbult mines have started safely and production ramp up is progressing according to plan. Due to the planned ramp up process the operations have not yet reached the pre-strike production levels and the Company continues to lose production. Production is now above 80% of steady state level.



Since 16 November, when employees accepted the terms of the Company's offer and returned to work, the Company has lost a further 40 000 ounces of platinum production from own mines. Amplats confirms that, as a result of the initial safety suspension and the illegal strike action, which ended on 15 November 2012, the total losses from the strike and during the on- going ramp up period are 235 000 ounces of platinum production from own mines, of which 195 000 ounces were lost as a result of the initial safety suspension and illegal strike action.

Amplats confirmed that its Rustenburg, Union and Amandelbult employees have accepted the terms of the company's offer and have returned to work this morning. Management has put in place a reintegration programme, which will include Safe-Start training and medical examinations. As these operations have been idle for two months it is important to ensure that activities are carried out to ensure that working places are made safe. In the interests of the safety and health of our employees, these activities must be carried out before employees can be allowed to begin operations. Once operations have started safely, production ramp up will begin. It is therefore anticipated that there will be no production from these operations for the coming week.



The offer, which will be applied to all employees in the bargaining unit and will benefit approximately 48 000 employees, included the following elements:

*the reinstatement of all the dismissed Rustenburg employees;

*a once off allowance of R4500 (pre-tax) payable in two tranches: the first payment of R2000 hardship allowance to be paid two days after employees have returned to work; and the second payment of R2500 being a safe start-up allowance to be paid two weeks after employees have returned to work and have commenced actual work;

*a monthly allowance of R400 (pre-tax) which will be added to base salaries; and

*an undertaking by management to re-open wage negotiations early, recognising that any agreements reached would be implemented in July 2013 in order to maintain the wage negotiation cycle.



The illegal strike action began in mid-September 2012 and has had a significant financial impact on the company. To date, the company has lost 191 359 ounces of platinum production from own mines. Amplats has repeatedly stated that the Rustenburg operations were under considerable economic pressure and the strike action was exacerbating that pressure and affecting the viability of these operations.



Further updates will be provided as appropriate.

Anglo American Platinum is now reasonably certain that basic and headline earnings for the year ending 31 December 2012 (the period) will decrease by more than 20% from that reported in the year ended 31 December 2011 (the comparative period). However, in view of volatility in exchange rates, metal prices and the impact of the current illegal industrial action, Anglo American Platinum cannot, with reasonable certainty, quantify the extent of the decrease in expected earnings other than that the decrease is expected to be more than 20%.



Headline earnings and basic earnings reported for the comparative period were R3,566 million and R3,591 million respectively while headline earnings per share (HEPS) and earnings per share (EPS) were R13.65 and R13.74 respectively. The expected decrease in earnings is primarily as a result of lower sales volumes, the impact of the illegal industrial action on production and cost, higher mining inflation and lower metal prices achieved compared to the comparative period.



Shareholders are advised that a further trading statement will be issued in due course to provide earnings forecast ranges for earnings per share and headline earnings per share as required by the JSE Listing requirements. The forecast financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed and reported on by the Company?s external auditors. The results for the period will be released on SENS on or about 4 February 2013.

Angloplat announced the approval of the proposed 51% indigenisation implementation plan at Unki Mines (Pvt) Ltd. (Unki) by the Minister of Youth Development, Indigenisation and Empowerment. This transaction is the culmination of the originally envisaged process to develop Unki in partnership with the people of Zimbabwe. The proposed transaction will be facilitated through a notional vendor financing structure and includes the following shareholding structure:

*10% equity ownership transaction with a trust established for the benefit of the community surrounding Unki?s operations;

*10% equity ownership transaction with a trust to be established for the benefit of all full time employees of Unki;

*10% equity ownership transaction with a consortium of strategic equity partners;

*21% equity ownership transaction with the National Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment Fund.



The disposal of equity under the indigenisation implementation plan will be undertaken at a market-related valuation of Unki adjusted for debt and is subject to the requisite Angloplat board and statutory approvals, as may be required. The acquisition price will be repaid from future dividends and Angloplat intends to implement the indigenisation plan by 30 June 2013. The expected economic cost to Angloplat of the empowerment plan is USD59.3 million, which equates to 12.9% of the enterprise value of Unki at date of transaction. The Government of Zimbabwe has also agreed that it will ensure Angloplat receives payment of the amount of USD142 million due to it for the cession of the Kironde and Bougai mineral right claims in March 2008. The payment of the USD142 million is in lieu of empowerment credits due per the March 2008 cession of claims agreement and is in addition to amounts that will be receivable in respect of the disposal of the 51% equity in Unki.

Amplats provided an update on the ongoing illegal industrial action around its Rustenburg, Union and Amandelbult mining operations. It has been seven weeks since the initial safety suspension and the subsequent illegal industrial action by employees. Amplats announced on 18 October that it had entered into discussions with its recognised unions, NUM, UASA and NUMSA, and the strike committee to explore options to facilitate the return to work of employees currently involved in illegal strike action. The status of the 12 000 dismissed Rustenburg employees formed part of these discussions, which did not include any wage negotiations.



As a result of these discussions, Amplats announced on Monday 29 October its offer to facilitate the return to work of the Union and Amandelbult employees and to reinstate all 12 000 dismissed Rustenburg employees. The offer was strictly subject to all striking employees returning to work and doing actual work activities by no later than Tuesday 30 October 2012. Anglo American Platinum confirms that this offer has not yet been accepted by employees. Disciplinary hearings for Amandelbult and Union Mine employees engaging in illegal strike action are already underway and the outcome will be announced in due course.



The company currently does not have sufficient staff for safe operations in the affected areas and continues to carry out essential services only. Amplats confirms that it is losing an average of 3 694 ounces of platinum per day and to date 141 640 ounces of platinum have been lost. Amplats also notes the reports of 123 arrests made by SAPS since the illegal strike action and following the violence in the Rustenburg area and can confirm that 36 of those arrested are Amplats employees.

Angloplat provided an update on the ongoing illegal industrial action around its Rustenburg, Union and Amandelbult mining operations. It has been five weeks since the initial safety suspension and the subsequent illegal industrial action and despite the company's repeated calls for employees to return to work, attendance levels remain below 20%. Currently the majority of the mining operations in Rustenburg and north of Pilanesburg have insufficient staff to operate safely and continue to carry out essential services only.



Amplats has previously reported that it was willing to consider bringing the wage negotiations forward to help facilitate the return of their employees to work. The company has resolved to commence engagements with its recognised unions, namely, NUM, UASA, and NUMSA to explore options to facilitate the return of employees currently involved in illegal strike action, to work. These discussions will be done on an expedited basis.



To enable the process to proceed smoothly, the company has decided to delay the dismissal process at Union and Amandelbult mines to afford these negotiations every chance of success. Amplats confirms that while it remains their stated position that they will not reinstate the 12000 dismissed Rustenburg employees, Amplats has agreed with their recognised unions that they are willing to discuss their status as part of this engagement.

Anglo American Platinum is providing an update on the ongoing illegal industrial action around its Rustenburg, Union and Amandelbult mining operations. It has been four weeks since the initial safety suspension and the subsequent industrial action by employees in the Rustenburg area.



Despite the company?s repeated calls for employees to return to work, attendance levels have remained below 20%. Currently, most of the company's mining and processing operations in the north of Rustenburg have insufficient staff to operate safely and continue to carry out essential services only. On Friday 5 October, Anglo American Platinum announced that 12,000 of its striking employees in the Rustenburg area had been dismissed due to non-attendance and non-representation at the disciplinary hearings. These employees were given three days to appeal the decision and a subsequent extension was provided to enable employees who still wished to appeal, the opportunity to do so. The extension ends at the close of business today.



Disciplinary hearings at Union Mine have now concluded and employees will be advised of the outcomes in due course. Employees at Amandelbult Mine (Tumela/Dishaba), who have been engaged in illegal strike action since Wednesday 3 October, have been making representations since Thursday 11 October, and in line with the process carried out at Rustenburg, employees will have the opportunity to appeal.



Anglo American Platinum confirms that as a result of the illegal industrial action of its employees and the initial safety suspension, total lost platinum production has amounted to 67,000 ounces, resulting in approximately R1.1 billion of lost revenue. The average loss of platinum production is 3,800 ounces per day. The ongoing illegal strike by Anglo American Platinum employees will adversely affect the company?s delivery obligations regarding the supply of Chrome ore and as a result force majeure notices have been issued to its chrome customers. The company?s ability to deliver Platinum Group Metals (PGMs) and base metals however remains unaffected at this stage.



Further updates will be provided when appropriate.

Angloplat is providing an update on the ongoing illegal industrial action around its Rustenburg mining operations. It has been three weeks since the initial safety suspension and the subsequent industrial action by employees in the Rustenburg area.



Despite the company's repeated calls for employees to return to work, we have continued to experience attendance levels of less than 20%. Currently four of the company's mining operations in the Rustenburg area have insufficient staff to operate and only essential services are being carried out at those mines. The Rustenburg concentrators, smelters and refineries and Bathopele Mine continue to operate normally.



Disciplinary hearings for striking Rustenburg mine employees have been completed and affected employees will be informed of the outcome of the hearings on Friday, 5 October 2012. Those employees will have three working days to appeal the outcome. Approximately 12 000 striking employees chose not to make representations, nor attend the hearings, and have therefore been dismissed in their absence.



Angloplat also confirms that the company has begun to experience strike contagion at its Union and Amandelbult (Tumela and Dishaba) operations, where workers have presented memorandums of demands similar to those received in Rustenburg. The Union and Amandelbult Mines, including Mortimer Smelter, are not in operation due to insufficient attendance.



Angloplat confirms that as a result of the illegal industrial action of its employees and the initial safety suspension, total lost platinum production has amounted to 39 000 ounces, resulting in approximately R700 million of lost revenue.

Business Day reported that Amplats is teaming up with state-owned mineral research company Mintek for a two-year, R2000 million research and development project to atomise metal to improve recoveries of metal. The technology used high- pressure water jets sprayed onto a stream of molten metal to make a fine powder, improving handling and processing once the metal has been treated. Amplats will not have exclusive rights to the technology, which means other mining companies can also use it. Amplats expects the technology, which is used elsewhere in the world to improve productivity at its operations.

Amplats confirmed that the volume of lost platinum production from its Rustenburg mining operations since 12 September 2012 has amounted to approximately 20 000 ounces.



The hearing at the CCMA yesterday did not relate to the current illegal strike. The CCMA hearing related solely to the memorandum submitted in mid-July by approximately 300 employees from Khusuleka Mine.

Amplats is currently finalising its results for the six months ended 30 June 2012 (''the period''), which will be released on SENS on or about 23 July 2012.



Headline earnings per share (''HEPS'') for the period are expected to decrease to between 270 cents and 280 cents from 1 236 cents reported for the six months ended 30 June 2011 (''the comparative period'').



The expected decrease in HEPS is primarily due to lower sales volumes and lower realised prices during the first half of 2012. Platinum sales volumes for the period were lower primarily due to the delayed restart of the converter plant post its annual maintenance. HEPS for the period has also been adversely affected by higher than expected industry cost inflation, particularly for labour, diesel and electricity.



In addition to the reduction in HEPS mentioned above, basic earnings for the period included a loss of R256 million resulting from revaluation of the company's investment in Wesizwe Platinum Ltd. and once-off accounting charges of R388 million (post-tax) and R505 million (post-tax)for the writedown of the Tumela 4 shaft project and suspension of Marikana operations respectively. Tumela 4 shaft infrastructure is not viable in the current economic and operating environment. As a result, basic earnings per share for the period are expected to decrease to a loss of between 185 cents and 175 cents from the basic earnings per share profit of 1 273 cents for the comparative period.



The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed and reported on by the company's external auditors.

*Mogalakwena's head grade increased 5% year on year and recoveries improved by 24%

*Refined platinum production down 24% year on year and 43% quarter on quarter to 403 koz due to planned converter plant maintenance

*Productivity of 6.12mSquared squared per employee per month during the first quarter, up 4% quarter on quarter



Guidance for the remainder of 2012

Amplats expects the platinum market to be in balance in 2012. Depressed automotive demand growth in Europe continues in line with economic concerns, however primary supply side challenges were heightened during the quarter. Increased investor participation led the recovery in the platinum price, albeit with increased volatility.



Amplats remains confident of refining and selling between 2.5 and 2.6 million ounces of platinum in 2012, subject to market conditions. Despite the maintenance related delay in refined production during the quarter, sales remained in line with contractual and market requirements.



Notwithstanding the difficult inflationary environment, Amplats maintains its cash unit costs target of between R14 000 and R14 500 per equivalent refined platinum ounce for 2012. This implies growth in cash operating cost per refined platinum ounce of between 3% and 7%, well below expected mining inflation. This unit cost target is based on an expected production level of 2.6 million ounces of platinum.



Amplats incurred R1.12 billion of capital expenditure (excluding capitalised interest) during the quarter. Amplats continues to expect to incur up to R8.0 billion of capital expenditure for the year.

Attention was drawn to the joint announcement dated 2 February 2012 in which Amplats and Anooraq Resources Corporation ("Anooraq") (collectively, "the parties") announced that the parties have agreed to refinance Anooraq and to restructure and recapitalise the Bokoni group of companies ("Bokoni group") ("the transaction").



Amplats will, through a series of related transactions, acquire the whole of the Boikgantsho project and the eastern section of the Ga-Phasha project. On implementation of these transactions the effective net consideration of R1.7 billion received by Anooraq will be applied to reduce its approximately R3.0 billion debt owing to Amplats. After taking account of an interest stand- still agreement worth R300 million, Anooraq's remaining debt of approximately R1.0 billion will be consolidated into a new debt facility ("consolidated debt facility") with low interest rates in the medium term. The interest rates will increase over the loan period in line with the anticipated increase in Anooraq's cash flow, following a period of capital investment. Following the finalisation of a feasibility study, the Bokoni Platinum Mine (51% Anooraq and 49% Amplats) will be significantly expanded to bring the Middelpunt Hill Delta 80 UG2 Expansion Project into earlier production. Amplats will provide Anooraq with an additional amount of up to R1.3 billion under the consolidated debt facility to finance Anooraq's attributable portion of these expansion project costs and the construction of a new UG2 concentrator plant at Bokoni Platinum Mine.



The parties have also agreed on a new operating protocol for the management of the Bokoni operations, which will increase Amplats' active involvement in areas of the operations relating to mining, processing and capital projects execution. A new Managing Director, Dawid Stander, has also been appointed.

Amplats is currently finalising its results for the year ended 31 December 2011 ("the period"), which will be released on SENS on or about 13 February 2012. Following the achievement of headline earnings per share ("HEPS")of 1 935 cents reported for the year ended 31 December 2010 ("the comparative period"), the HEPS for the period is expected to decrease by between 24% and 34%. The expected decrease in HEPS is primarily as a result of the impact of the once off accounting charge for the broad-based community development transaction (R1.07 billion). HEPS for the period has also been adversely affected by the high number of safety stoppages resulting in lower production, as well as high industry cost inflation, particularly for labour and electricity. In addition to the drivers of the reduction in HEPS mentioned above, basic earnings for the comparative period included the once-off R4.4 billion gain on the listing of Royal Bafokeng Platinum Ltd as well as a R0.8 billion profit on the sale of the group's investment in the Western Bushveld joint venture. The resultant impact is that basic earnings per share for the period is expected to be between 60% and 70% lower than the basic earnings per share of 3 909 cents for the comparative period.

Business Day reported that Amplats is driving fuel cell development in SA to prepare for the decline in the use of platinum. Half of the platinum mined is used in engine catalysts that scrub noxious gases from car exhausts - but it is increasingly being substituted with palladium, which is cheaper. SA supplies about 80% of the world's platinum. Fuel cells can produce electricity continually as along as an input, such as platinum, is supplied. They are used for backup electrical systems to power cars. By developing fuel cell technology to provide electricity for a variety of uses, Amplats intends to create a pure platinum off-take market, its CEO, Neville Nicolau commented. According to in-house studies, engine catalyst demand may halve in three decades; industrial off take will rise to about 30% of production; fuel cells will absorb up to 15% and jewellery about 20%.

AngloPlat advised shareholders that basic earnings per share for the year ended 31 December 2010 are expected to increase to between 3 579 cents and 3 825 cents from the basic earnings per share of 1 234 cents for the year ended 31 December 2009 (restated from 1 269 cents). Headline earnings per share for the year ended 31 December 2010 are expected to increase to between 1 907 and 1 965 cents from the headline earnings per share of 289 cents (restated from 298 cents). The weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue in 2010 was 254.8 million, compared to 243.7 in 2009 (restated from 236.9). The restatements in earnings per share and the change in the number of weighted average shares in issue arise due to the proforma increase in shares in issue at 31 December 2009, resulting from the discount at which the rights offer was offered to shareholders. The expected increase in earnings is primarily as a result of higher rand prices achieved on metals sold. In addition, basic earnings will be impacted by the profit on the disposal of a 37% interest in the Western Bushveld joint venture and a 5% interest in RBPlatinum Ltd. AngloPlat intends to publish its audited annual results on 7 February 2011.

On Monday, 20 September 2010, Royal Bafokeng Platinum (Pty) Ltd (the "company" or "RBPlat"), an independent black-controlled platinum group metals (PGMs) producer and subsidiary of Royal Bafokeng Holdings (Pty) Ltd ("RBH") announced its intention to list on the securities exchange operated by the JSE Ltd ("JSE") during the last quarter of 2010. RBPlat holds a 67% interest in Bafokeng Rasimone Platinum Mine ("BRPM"), a joint venture established in 2002 between RBPlat's wholly-owned subsidiary, Royal Bafokeng Resources (Pty) Ltd and Rustenburg Platinum Mines Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Angloplat, and which owns the remaining 33% of BRPM.



Angloplat drew attention to the announcement by RBPlat stating that the shareholders of RBPlat, being RBH and Anglo Plat (the "shareholders`), received a written offer to acquire 100% of BRPM (the "offer"). Discussions are at an early stage and the shareholders are yet to receive a binding offer. The offer is subject to a number of pre-conditions, which include, inter alia, RBPlat shareholder approval, due diligence and a number of regulatory and other approvals. The RBPlat board has decided to temporarily suspend the intended listing process in order to allow the shareholders time to evaluate the offer. There is no certainty that these discussions will lead to a transaction.



Whilst the directors of Angloplat do not believe the aforementioned information is materially price sensitive, they would still recommend to their shareholders that they exercise caution when dealing in their Angloplat securities until a further announcement is made.

The joint venture aims to develop new applications of the cells, from cellphone batteries to back-up generators. The focus will be on the sub-Saharan African market, which has encountered significant power problems.

Dividend

No dividend has been declared for the period under review.



Outlook

For the remainder of 2010, Anglo Platinum expects the platinum price to average at least USD1 500 per ounce, if economic recovery continues. At such a price, we expect to refine and sell a total of 2.5 million ounces of platinum in 2010 - thereby expecting a stronger second half to the year. Anglo Platinum will continue to manage costs as a priority by improving productivity, increasing efficiency and managing the supply chain and procurement costs. The group expect cost improvements achieved so far to be sustained and continue to aim to keep unit cash costs per equivalent refined platinum ounce for the year around the same level as in 2008 and 2009, just above R11 000 per equivalent refined platinum ounce.



Productivity is expected to increase to an average of 7.0 m2 for 2010 and an average of 7.3 m2 for 2011. Anglo Platinum's strategic plan, based on the current view that the market will be adequately supplied, should improve the cost position from the upper half to the lower half of the cost curve. The group are in the process of improving the reliability of our production capacity and entrenching cost management as a long term and sustainable culture in Anglo Platinum. This will ensure that Anglo Platinum are well positioned to extract full value from assets as the market recovery continues. The group safety improvement plan will ensure that they continue to demonstrate improvements on our journey to zero harm.

Anglo Platinum hereby advises shareholders that both basic earnings per share and headline earnings per share for the half year ended 30 June 2010 are expected to increase by at least 20% from the basic earnings per share of 1144 cents and headline earnings per share of 169 cents for the half-year ended 30 June 2009. This is despite the increase in number of shares in issue following the rights offer.

The expected increase in earnings is primarily as a result of the higher Rand prices achieved on metals sold. In addition, basic earnings will be impacted by the profit on the disposal of the group's 37% interest in the Western Bushveld joint venture to Wesizwe Platinum Ltd. Once the company has reasonable certainty of the range of increase, such range will be published in a further trading statement. Anglo Platinum intends publishing its interim results on Monday, 26 July 2010.

AngloPlat advised shareholders that basic earnings per share for the year ended 31 December 2009 are expected to be between 75% and 85% lower than the basic earnings per share of 6 011 cents for the year ended 31 December 2008. Headline earnings per share are expected to be between 89% and 99% lower than the headline earnings per share of 5 609 cents for the year ended 31 December 2008.



The expected decrease is primarily as a result of lower metal prices, despite higher platinum sales volumes. The difference between the basic earnings per share and headline earnings per share is attributable to the profit in respect of the previously announced BEE transactions with Mvelapanda Resources Ltd and Anooraq Resources Corporation, which is excluded from headline earnings. AngloPlat intends publishing its annual results on 8 February 2010.

Angloplat has taken a decision to terminate its secondary listing on the LSE. Whilst the company remains cognizant of the interest of all shareholders, the rationale for delisting on the LSE is chiefly dictated by the low volume of trade in the company's shares on the LSE, the UK register comprising a fraction of the overall total shareholding. The company has determined that the secondary listing is administratively intensive and costly and is of the view that the volume of trade over the past few years does not sufficiently warrant a presence in London, nor the expense of maintaining a secondary listing on the LSE. Shareholders are further notified that all shareholders reflected on the UK register as at the record date of 4 December, 2009, currently administered by Capita Registrars, will be transferred onto the South African Register administered by Computershare Transfer Secretaries in South Africa.



The company maintains its primary listing on the JSE. Shareholders on the UK Register are required to inform the transfer secretaries in South Africa whether they wish to hold their documents of title in electronic or certificated form. If shareholders elect a dematerialised format, they are required to seek advice from their broker or a South African based Central Securities Depository Participant ("CSDP") as to the required procedures. Alternatively, if shareholders elect to remain in certificated form, the address to which the replacement certificate is to be posted must be provided to the Transfer Secretaries in South Africa. The delisting from the LSE has been approved and the JSE notified, and the salient dates are as follows:

*Last day to trade on the LSE Friday, 4 December 2009

*Surrender of share certificates to UK transfer secretaries -- Friday, 4 December 2009

Angloplat has come out fighting after the unwarranted attack on its integrity last week by International non-governmental organization ActionAid. ActionAid labelled as "forced removals" the company's eight-year consultations and signed relocation agreements with families that had to be re-settled to facilitate the expansion of its mining operations in South Africa's Limpopo Province.



In reply the company has now issued its own report, "The Real Facts", which answers each accusation, each factual inaccuracy and error, item by item. This action, the company says, is necessary because "the ActionAid report is extremely one-sided and contains so many inaccuracies and distorts the facts, that we are compelled to set the record straight and give staff, customers, suppliers, shareholders and society at large the chance to decide whether we are acting responsibly or not," Mary-Jane Morifi, Angloplat's executive head of corporate affairs, said today.

* Allegation : "Resettled people received little compensation" - Fact : "Each family was resettled to a modern brick dwelling approved by that family of an equal or greater size than they previously occupied. In addition a cash allowance to assist with incidental resettlement expenses was also provided."

* Allegation : "Expanding platinum production has resulted in a wave of open pit mines in South Africa." - Fact : " Mogalakwena Platinum Mine is Angloplat's only open pit operation and accounts for some 10% of annual production. Angloplat is committed to promoting, protecting and defending the human rights of all its stakeholders."

As the dividend cover in respect of the 2007 dividends is less than 1.4 times, it is necessary, in accordance with the rights and privileges of the convertible perpetual cumulative preference shares ("convertible preference shares"), to adjust the conversion price to be used when convertible preference shares are converted into ordinary shares. Currently the conversion price is R284.24 or 35.18154 ordinary shares for every 100 convertible preference shares converted. Based on the volume weighted average traded price of Anglo Platinum ordinary shares on the JSE Ltd for the five business days ended Friday, 7 March 2008 of R1299.15368, the conversion price is adjusted to R281.05 or 35.58086 ordinary shares for every 100 convertible preference shares converted. Convertible preference shareholders were informed in an announcement dated Monday, 11 February 2008 that no conversions of convertible preference shares may take place between Monday, 10 March 2008 to Friday, 14 March 2008, both dates inclusive.

Angloplat announced that it has reached consensus with its labour representative organisations on the key terms and structure of the Angloplat's broad-based employee share participation scheme. Angloplat has established the Anglo Platinum Kotula Trust for an eight year duration to facilitate the Scheme on behalf of the beneficiaries and will issue approximately 2.5 million shares to the Trust, representing approximately 1.0% of the company?s issued ordinary share capital. The shares issued to the Trust will be a combination of Angloplat ordinary shares and a new class of unlisted ordinary shares.



Following a thorough consultation process with its Recognised Unions, and to reduce the risk of share price volatility to the Scheme thereby ensuring that sustainable value is created for beneficiaries, Angloplat has structured the Scheme to include 40% fully facilitated shares through the issue of ordinary shares to the Trust. The proposed 1% Scheme is equivalent in cost to placing 1.5% of the company?s issued ordinary share capital into a Historically Disadvantaged South African trust on a 100% "A" Ordinary Share basis. A circular containing the full details of the Scheme, including a notice of combined general meeting, will be posted to Angloplat ordinary and preference shareholders on or about 7 March 2008. The circular will also be available on Angloplat's website at www.angloplat.com.

Angloplat's share price has benefited more in the past two days from record platinum prices than the market favourite Impala Platinum Ltd ("Implats") for several reasons, which could encompass buying by big investors, according to analysts in Business Day. Angloplat has gained 10.6% to R1 104 over the past two days, while Implats has only risen 1.3% to R246.70. Niell Young of Coronation Fund Managers remarked that a possible reason for the appreciation in Angloplat, relative to Implats, was a rumour that a large foreign shareholder was switching from Implats to Angloplat. However, Anglo American plc had also been acquiring Angloplat shares, which also could have given the shares further momentum. In addition, Young doubted whether Angloplat's rise was related to its superior reserves.

Angloplat had reached agreement on transactions that will result in the creation of two substantial, Historically Disadvantaged South African (HDSA) managed and controlled South African platinum group metal (PGM) producers, with critical mass and significant growth potential.

Angloplat will suspend underground production at its Rustenburg Platinum Mine's Rustenburg section for approximately 7 days to implement measures to address concerns associated with the safety of employees. During the first half of 2007, the safety record at Angloplat's Rustenburg section deteriorated significantly. Despite the initiatives already in place, in consultation with Anglo American plc, management has decided to take immediate action. Management believes that the appropriate action must be to suspend production.



The intervention will ensure that every employee fully understands the principles and accountability underlying all current safety standards, initiatives and programmes and that safety is the overriding priority. While each underground production shaft at Rustenburg section will halt production for between 5 and 7 days, expected to commence on 22 June 2007, the intervention programme at the mine will be staggered over a five-week period to optimise resource allocation and the effectiveness of contact between management and employees. Angloplat expects production in 2007, as a direct result of this intervention, to reduce by between 10 000 and 15 000 ounces of refined platinum and the proportionate reduction of associated by-products produced.

Anglo Platinum has announced that it is at an advanced stage of negotiating a BEE transaction which if successfully concluded will see the Bakgatla-Ba-Kgafela Traditional Community ("the Bakgatla") acquire a 15% interest in Anglo Platinum's Rustenburg Platinum Mines' Union section ("Union") and interests in the prospecting rights of the Rooderand 46 JQ, portion 2 ("Rooderand") and Magazynskraal 3 JQ ("Magazynskraal") properties.

In terms of the transaction Anglo Platinum intends to:

* convert an existing royalty agreement with the Bakgatla over a portion of the Union mining area which, in addition to the payment by the Bakgatla of a cash consideration of R420 million funded by commercial debt, will result in the Bakgatla holding a 15% equity stake in the Union mine and concentrator complex,

* cede a 26% interest in Magazynskraal and establish an exploration joint venture which will afford the Bakgatla the opportunity to increase their participation interest in the property by funding or facilitating the exploration thereof, and

* cede a 55% interest in the prospecting rights of Rooderand to the Bakgatla which will be used as security for a R45 million loan to be made by Anglo Platinum to the Bakgatla to repay land debt and fund community projects.



The Bakgatla-Ba-Kgafela Traditional Community comprises some 350 000 people resident in the greater Pilanesburg area adjacent to Union and comprise approximately 47% of Union's labour force. The Bakgatla hold mineral interests over a portion of the Union mining area and have received royalty payments from Anglo Platinum since 1982. The Bakgatla are the beneficial owners of portion 1 of Rooderand 46 JQ and have an existing exploration joint venture with Barrick Gold Corporation on properties contiguous to Magazynskraal.

Headline earnings and headline earnings attributable to ordinary shareholders more than doubled to R4.50 billion and R4.38 billion respectively. Headline earnings per ordinary share rose 117% to 2 002c. An interim dividend of 1 400c per ordinary share has been declared. Net sales revenue rose by R5.81 billion to R16.5 billion. The increase was primarily the result of higher US Dollar metal prices achieved on all metals sold, contributing R5.3 billion of the increase and higher volumes of metals sold, mainly platinum and rhodium, which contributed a further R462 million. The average Rand/US dollar exchange rate was slightly weaker at R6.34, when compared to the rate of R6.26 achieved in the first half of 2005, contributing an increase in revenue of R313 million. Other net income for the period amounted to R160 million and comprised mainly of foreign exchange gains of R306 million offset by restructuring and project maintenance costs of R164 million.

As a result of existing long term confidential contractual arrangements with some customers entered into to support and develop the rhodium market, the average price achieved on sales of rhodium metal for the period was USD3 419 per ounce.



Refined platinum production increased to 1.34 million ounces or by 6% when compared to the first half of 2005 mainly due to increased mining production and the release of metal from pipeline stocks. Refined platinum production for 2006 is expected to be between 2.7 million and 2.8 million ounces.

Anglo Platinum remains confident of the robustness of demand for platinum and continues to implement an extensive suite of mining and processing projects to maintain current production levels and expand production at an average rate of 5% per annum.

If the price of rhodium is USD3 500/oz for the same period Anglo Platinum's average price achieved will be USD3 136/oz. As a result of massive historic movements in the price of rhodium and the likely damage caused thereby to sustainable rhodium demand, these contractual arrangements were put in place to provide users with increased certainty in developing and planning their technology applications.

Anglo Platinum Ltd and Anooraq Resources Corporation are pleased to announce a progress update on their Ga-Phasha Platinum Group Metal (PGM) Project (Ga- Phasha), a 50:50 joint venture located on the North Eastern Limb of the Bushveld Complex, South Africa. Ga-Phasha is located directly between Anglo Platinum's Lebowa Platinum Mine on its Western boundary and the Twickenham Platinum Mine on its Eastern boundary. Anooraq acquired its interest in Ga-Phasha through its completed Reverse Takeover by Pelawan Investments (Pty) Ltd, thereby constituting Anooraq as the first Black Economic Empowerment controlled corporation to obtain an offshore primary listing in North American capital markets. The original plan for Ga-Phasha, developed in 2001 and 2002, envisaged the UG2 Reef as the principle target reef horizon with mineralization being processed through a joint concentrator situated at Twickenham. Following changed economic circumstances, Anglo Platinum and Anooraq are of the view that the value of Ga- Phasha could be further optimised by exploiting both the Merensky and UG2 Reef horizons. Anglo Platinum and Anooraq have, therefore, embarked on a programme which will lead to a bankable feasibility study. The Programme, which includes extensive additional drilling of the Merensky Reef horizon, will enable the Parties to determine how to optimally mine the mineralized horizons and utilise, on a cost sharing basis, some of the regional infrastructure already established by Anglo Platinum. The Parties intend to complete the Programme during the first quarter of 2006. A timetable for completion of the studies necessary thereafter will be determined on completion of the Programme.

Further to the announcement of 20 September 2005, Angloplat advises that the original timetable for repair to the smelter, including the installation of the modified split waffle cooler system, remains as planned and normal smelting operations at Polokwane are expected to resume in mid-December 2005. Forecast refined platinum production for 2005 will reduce from 2.6 million to approximately 2.45 million ounces. Forecast refined production of palladium is expected to be 1.33 million ounces and rhodium 0.32 million ounces. These forecasts include limited toll smelting to be undertaken by Northam Platinum Ltd which will produce approximately 8 000 ounces of platinum and 3 000 ounces of palladium. Angloplat will continue to sell metal in terms of existing contractual commitments in 2005. Refined platinum and palladium stocks at year end will be lower than normal. Total sales volumes in 2005 are estimated at 2.51 million ounces of Platinum and 1.36 million ounces of palladium. Assuming the rand/US dollar exchange rate and metal prices remain at current levels, the expected net impact in 2005 of lower metal sales offset by the increase in inventory is to reduce headline earnings by some R250 million and increase net debt by some R640 million.

Angloplat announces that the detailed technical examination referred to in its announcement on 8 September 2005 has been completed. The findings show that the failure of a single waffle cooler led to water ingress into the furnace. The examination also revealed a concerning general level of corrosion across all the waffle coolers and it is considered necessary to replace the complete waffle cooler installation. In addition, following the corrosion disruption in September 2004, it was decided to modify the waffle cooler design by introducing a split cooler system. The modification will allow easier corrosion identification and cooler replacement in future. The modification was originally scheduled to be installed in early 2006 and has been brought forward as part of this repair. It is expected that the work will be complete by the end of November and normal smelting operations will resume in mid-December 2005. Angloplat is implementing contingency arrangements to minimise the effect of the smelter shutdown on metal flow and annual production and will utilise excess industry smelting capacity where possible. Angloplat`s forecast production volume for 2005 is likely to be affected and unit costs will be higher due to transport and possible toll treatment costs. The impact on production, on the assumption that excess industry capacity cannot be economically accessed, would be to reduce planned refined platinum production from 2,6 million to approximately 2,45 million ounces for 2005. Metal in concentrate not smelted and refined would be released in the first half of 2006. The impact of contingency arrangements on production and unit costs will be announced once finalised.

Anglo Platinum today announced a significant improvement in headline earnings for the half year ended 30 June 2005. Headline earnings per share attributable to ordinary shareholders increased to R9.24 per share, 33.7% higher than in the first half of 2004. The increase in headline earnings resulted from a combination of higher US dollar metal prices, increased refined production and once-off benefits arising from the change in the South African corporate tax rate and a gain in the quantity of pipeline stocks. The effect of the stronger average rand on sales was largely offset by gains on foreign exchange as the rand weakened during the first half of 2005. An interim ordinary dividend of R4.80 per share has been declared.



Commenting on these results, CEO Ralph Havenstein said `We are pleased with the progress made in implementing our new business model which has set the Group on course to achieve cost and efficiency improvements while continuing to expand. Focused interventions to address difficult geological conditions and to increase long term stability and flexibility are gathering momentum. Our smelting and refining operations performed well with improved recoveries and increased use of available smelting capacity`.



Anglo Platinum remains confident of the robustness of current and future demand for platinum and continues to pursue its strategy to grow the markets for platinum group metals and to expand production to meet increased demand. The rate of expansion is reviewed on an ongoing basis and the recent weakening of the rand against the US dollar, combined with strong prevailing metal prices, results in higher projected project returns. If this improvement appears sustainable, the development of certain projects may be accelerated. `Our emphasis on capital optimisation and the deferral of some projects has resulted in our forecast capital expenditure for 2005 reducing to R4.5bn. The refined platinum production target for 2005 remains at 2.6 million ounces and for 2006 remains between 2.7 million and 2.8 million ounces`, said Ralph.

Angloplat has advised shareholders that headline earnings per share for the half-year ended 30 June 2005 are expected to be between 30% and 35% higher than the headline earnings per share of 697.9c for the half-year ended 30 June 2004. Earnings per share and headline earnings per share for the half year ended 30 June 2005 do not differ.



The half-year headline earnings include a benefit of R172m resulting from a reduction in the deferred tax liability at 31 December 2004 in line with the change in the South African corporate tax rate from 30% to 29%, an after tax foreign exchange gain of R306m, an after tax increase in the value of metal inventories of R234m that arose mainly from a gain in the quantity of pipeline stocks as indicated by a full stock count.



Anglo Platinum intends publishing its interim results on 27 July 2005.
