AngloGold reported that the Kibali Gold Mine is expected to deliver a record performance for the third quarter, and is on track to exceed its guidance for the year, as the operation met or exceeded designed capacity on throughput, recovery and hoisting capacity.



The mine, a joint venture with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) (10%), AngloGold (45%) and Randgold Resources (45% and operator), is trending to outperform its full-year production guidance of 730 000oz. The joint venture has also reached agreement with the DRC Ministry of Finance, for the return of outstanding value-added tax (VAT) refunds.



Kibali is now operating at steady state. It has successfully converted from contract- to owner-mining by an almost-entirely Congolese team, and there is now a strong focus on exploring for new ore sources, and conversion of resources to reserves. In addition, the third hydropower plant has been commissioned, marking the first time a Congolese contractor has completed an industrial-scale power plant. This provides invaluable expertise to further develop the country?s engineering sector.



Equally encouraging is the accord reached with the DRC Ministry of Finance on VAT refunds, which will commence with an initial payment of USD40 million to the joint venture. The balance to be offset against future taxes owed. The DRC Ministry of Finance has also exempted local goods and services, purchased by Kibali, from incurring VAT.



AngloGold has invested in improving the quality of its portfolio, through the development of new mines in Australia and the DRC, and in projects that will extend life and improve margins at existing operations. The Company has simplified its portfolio, reduced debt, lowered interest costs and advanced options in its project pipeline. The Company will release its third-quarter market update on 5 November 2018.

Revenue for the interim period was lower at USD2 billion (USD2.1 billion) whilst gross profit grew to USD410 million (USD325 million). Operating profit was recorded at USD119 million (loss of USD65 million). Profit attributable to equity shareholders came to USD33 million (loss of USD176 million). In addition, headline earnings per share were USD24cps (headline loss per share of USD22cps).



Prospects

AngloGold Ashanti continued to deliver on its strategy to improve free cash flow and returns, with a strong first-half operating and financial result. Production from retained operations increased by 4% year-on-year, which along with good cost control and a higher gold price, helped drive improvements in earnings and free cash flow. Productivity rates, up 58% from 2012, continued to improve as the effects of portfolio restructuring became evident, brownfields investments started to yield returns, and operational efficiency initiatives gained traction. Strong progress on many fronts allowed AngloGold Ashanti to maintain guidance across all metrics with production expected at the top end of the range and costs trending towards the lower end of the range.



The sale of the Vaal River underground mines was completed at the end of February, and the proceeds were immediately applied to reduce debt and further improve balance sheet flexibility. Brownfields projects remained on track and on budget. The ratification of investment agreements by Ghana's Parliament in June 2018 allowed the redevelopment of the high-grade Obuasi Gold Mine to commence in earnest. "We continued to improve our portfolio, strengthen our balance sheet and increase productivity, all of which are the cornerstones of our strategy to improve free cash flow and returns over the long term," Chief Executive Officer Srinivasan Venkatakrishnan said. "The business is in good shape - production is strong, costs are improving and our pipeline is well stocked with options."

AngloGold Ashanti reported that the commissioning of the Recovery Enhancement Project at its Sunrise Dam Gold Mine in Western Australia was successfully completed on time at the end of June 2018, cementing the next step in the mine?s renaissance.



Development of the large, high-grade Vogue orebody at Sunrise Dam Gold Mine is now underway, which along with improved recoveries, increased mining volumes and a range of productivity enhancements, is expected to result in an increase in production of around 25%, to about 300 000 ounces in 2018. AngloGold Ashanti will today map out the plan to sustain long-term production from the mine at 300 000 ? 350 000 ounces a year, with all-in sustaining cost trending toward USD900/oz in coming years, making this one of Australia?s most important gold mines and a cornerstone asset for the group.



AngloGold Ashanti continues to prize strict capital discipline and high-return projects with relatively low capital expenditure, as it executes on its strategy to improve free cash flow generation and returns over time.

The board of AngloGold Ashanti (?the board?) announced the resignation of Srinivasan Venkatakrishnan, who after 18 years with the company, with the last five years as Chief Executive Officer, has accepted an offer to become CEO of Vedanta Resources Plc, the diversified resources group. He will remain in his current role until 30 August 2018.



A global search for the new CEO is underway, with a sub-committee of the board formed to evaluate internal and external candidates. It is the board?s intention that a successor will have been identified before Venkat?s departure.



Venkat assumed the role of CEO in May 2013, soon after the gold price fell by nearly a third. Under his leadership, AngloGold Ashanti achieved a 16% reduction in all-in sustaining costs, a 30% reduction in all in costs, a two-thirds reduction in overhead expenditure, a one-third reduction in debt, successful completion of two new mining projects, and five consecutive years of either meeting or beating its market guidance metrics. Productivity over the five years increased by 26%, from 7.66oz per total employee costed in 2012 to 9.66oz/TEC in 2017. This was all achieved whilst setting new benchmarks for safety performance and environmental stewardship, and without the issue of equity thereby avoiding dilution to shareholders.

(Official Notice)
Mining industry representatives in the Democratic Republic of Congo have submitted a formal proposal to the country?s Ministry of Mines that is designed to address concerns about the recently revised mining code as well as the government?s revenue needs.



Among other things, it proposes linking a sliding scale of royalty rates to the prices of the key commodities, which industry representatives believe would be a more effective mechanism than the windfall tax introduced in the new code and at current prices would immediately give the government a higher share of revenues than what is provided in the new code. It also deals with stability arrangements, state guarantees and mining conventions.



Along with the stability afforded to convention holders, enshrined in the 2002 mining code is a 10 year stability clause which provides that the holders of mining and exploration titles will continue to be governed by the terms of the 2002 mining code in the event of the implementation of any new law for such period.



Article 276:

The State guarantees that the provisions of the present Code can only be modified if, and only if, this Code itself is the subject of a legislative amendment adopted by Parliament.



The rights attached to or deriving from an exploration licence or mining exploitation licence granted and valid on the date of the enactment of such a legislative modification, as well as the rights relating to or deriving from the exploitation licence subsequently granted by virtue of such an exploration licence, including among others, the tax, customs and exchange regimes set forth in this Code, remain acquired and inviolable for a ten-year period from the date of:

*the entry into force of the legislative modification for the valid exploitation licences existing as of that date;

*the granting of the exploitation licence subsequently granted by virtue of a valid exploration licence existing on the date of entry into force of the legislative modification.



However, the proposal accepts 76% of the articles in the 2018 code and suggests changes to the rest only to ensure the effectiveness and legality of the code. The mining industry representatives believe these changes will resolve issues with the code and contractual relationships while giving the DRC and its people increased participation in the proceeds of mining.

15-Mar-2018
(Official Notice)
A legal and technical team representing the major mining companies operating in the Democratic Republic of Congo (?DRC?) has arrived in Kinshasa for engagement with the government on its new mining code. This follows the meeting on 7 March 2018 where His Excellency President Kabila gave an assurance that the questions raised by the industry would be resolved through transitional arrangements, mining regulations and in respect of agreements and guarantees that need to be considered after the new code was signed into law. In the meeting, the parties were requested to meet for a 30-day period starting 14 March 2018.



As agreed with His Excellency the President, a matrix of the industry?s issues and proposals regarding the mining code has been delivered to the Minister of Mines. The companies are now awaiting an appointment with the Minister of Mines to discuss a programme of engagement with his working group. The companies in their meeting with the President did confirm their willingness to negotiate additional royalties and changes to other taxes as part of this process.



The companies said they expected this process will start soon and that it will give priority to the recognition of the stability clauses contained in Article 276 of the 2002 mining code and certain mining conventions. Most notably, Article 276 provided for 10 years of stability after changes are made to the mining code, and formed the basis of many investment decisions in DRC. This period of stability resulted in over USD10 billion in direct investments by the mining industry which created over 20 000 full time jobs in the DRC.



In the meantime, Randgold Resources and AngloGold Ashanti?s Kibali mine, Glencore?s Mutanda Mine and Kamoto Copper Company, the Kamoa-Kakula mine, the Kinsevere mine and the Tenke Fugureme mine have resigned from the FEC, the Congolese Chamber of Commerce, with immediate effect. These mines, which represent more than 85% of the DRC?s copper, cobalt and gold production, said the FEC does not adequately represent their interests.

08-Mar-2018
(Official Notice)
On Wednesday the 7th March 2018, a meeting took place between His Excellency President Joseph KABILA KABANGE of the Democratic Republic of Congo and representatives of the mining industries at their request.



The purpose of the meeting was to clarify certain aspects of the new Mining Code adopted by the two chambers of the Congolese parliament, which will be promulgated soon.



The representatives of the mining industry raised questions pertaining to their operations. The President gave assurances that the questions raised will be resolved through discussions with the Government, in the mining regulation to be adopted by the Government.



After a constructive debate, the mining operators agreed to continue discussions with the Government on issues existing in the current agreement once the new Mining Code has been signed into law.



AngloGold is in full support of Randgold Resources, our partner and the operator in the Kibali joint venture. Randgold Resources will continue the engagement with DRC Government representatives next week.

AngloGold Ashanti announces that all conditions precedent have been fulfilled with respect to the sale of the Moab Khotsong Mine and related assets and liabilities to Harmony Gold Mining Company Ltd., and the separate sale of the Kopanang Mine and related assets and liabilities to Heaven-Sent SA Sunshine Investment Company Ltd. as announced on 19 October 2017. Both transactions closed on February 28, 2018.



Gross cash proceeds from these transactions of ZAR3.574 billion have been received and applied to reduce debt, in line with AngloGold Ashanti?s strategic commitment to continually improve strategic and financial flexibility.



AngloGold Ashanti?s remaining South African assets include the Mponeng underground gold mine, which is currently ramping up production from its Below 120 Level life-extension project, and two surface operations comprising the Mine Waste Solutions tailings dump-retreatment business and the rock dump reclamation and processing business. Together, these South African operating units will account for about 13% of AngloGold Ashanti?s total annual production.

Revenue for the year increased to USD4.543 billion (2016: USD4.254 billion), gross profit lowered to USD784 million (2016: USD841 million), operating profit plunged to USD80 million (2016: USD495 million), loss for the year attributable to equity shareholders came in at USD191 million (2016: profit of USD63 million), while headline earnings per share decreased to USD6 cents per share (2016: USD27 cents per share).



Dividend

In February 2017, the Board approved a dividend policy which provides for an annual dividend to be based on 10% of the free cash flow, before capital growth expenditure, generated by the business for that financial year. Furthermore, this is subject to the Board exercising its discretion on an annual basis, after taking into consideration the prevailing market conditions, balance sheet flexibility and future capital commitments of the group.



Consequently, the quantum of the dividend payout is expected to be volatile as it is based on a free cash flow metric that is subject to market conditions and is impacted by the level of funding of sustaining capital expenditure. In 2017, due to the significant capital reinvestment that the company has made at its existing operations, sustaining capital expenditure increased by 19% to USD829 million when compared to the prior year. In line with the approved dividend policy, the board has applied its discretion in adjusting the 2017 free cash flow, pre-growth capital expenditure metric for the USD49 million abnormal South African retrenchment costs paid and has approved a dividend of ZAR70 cents per share (approximately USD6 cents per share).



The Board is satisfied that subsequent to the dividend declaration, the Company has adequate balance sheet flexibility and sufficient funding facilities available to withstand market volatility. The continuation of the dividend reflects capital discipline and management's commitment to improving shareholder returns.

AngloGold Ashanti informed shareholders in a press release on 28 June 2017 that it had started a consultation process to restructure its South African operations, with the aim of ensuring that this business could be safely returned to profitability, whilst mitigating job losses. (?Restructuring of AngloGold Ashanti?s South African Operations to Ensure Their Viability?).



This restructuring process includes the Kopanang Mine ceasing operations and transitioning to care and maintenance. Subsequent to this announcement and based on unsolicited expressions of interest received from a number of parties, AngloGold Ashanti initiated a process to assess the sale of the Kopanang Mine (the ?Potential Sale?).



In this regard, a memorandum of understanding (MOU) has now been signed with a selected party. This MOU could result in a sale agreement being concluded with the selected party. Organised labour will be consulted as part of the Potential Sale.



Should the Potential Sale be successfully concluded, this will have a positive impact on the restructuring referred to above. The Kopanang Mine would no longer be placed on care and maintenance but would continue to operate under the ownership of the selected party. In terms of the memorandum of understanding, it has been agreed that the severance benefits due to all Kopanang employees will be paid out by AngloGold Ashanti on the closing of the Potential Sale. Should the Potential Sale not proceed, the severance benefits will be paid to employees on conclusion of the restructuring process announced on 28 June 2017 and the Kopanang Mine will move to care and maintenance.



The Potential Sale, if concluded, would not be a categorised transaction in terms of the JSE Ltd. Listings Requirements. Whether an agreement to sell the Kopanang Mine is concluded remains uncertain at this time and any such agreement will be conditional upon securing a number of regulatory approvals. A further announcement will be made once the disposal process is concluded.

AngloGold Ashanti will release results for the half year ended 30 June 2017 (?the period?) on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange News Service on 21 August 2017. With reference to the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited, issuers 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.



Expected headline loss and basic loss

Shareholders are advised that the Company has reasonable certainty that the headline loss for the period is expected to be between USD80 million and USD98 million, with a headline loss per share of between 19 cents and 23 cents.

The expected overall decrease in headline earnings and basic earnings in the first six months of the year relative to the comparative period were primarily due to:

*impairment of certain of the South African assets affecting basic earnings amounting to USD86 million (post-tax) or 21 cents per share;

*once-off non cash provisions arising from the potential retrenchment costs relating to the South African operations of USD47 million (post-tax) or 11 cents per share and the estimated costs of the settlement of silicosis class action claims and related expenditure (see below), which amounted to USD46 million (post-tax) or 11 cents per share;

*higher operating costs due primarily to the impact of stronger local currencies in South Africa and Brazil, inflation and changes in inventories; and

*lower income from associates and joint ventures.



Operational performance

Production is expected to be 1.748 Moz for the period compared to 1.745 Moz in the prior period. Notably, the Company achieved a stronger production performance in the second quarter of the year of 918,000 oz compared to the 830,000 oz in the first quarter, an increase of 10.6%.

AngloGold Ashanti notes the enactment by the Republic of Tanzania's Parliament and publication in the Country's official Government Gazette of the Natural Wealth and Resources (Permanent Sovereignty) Act, No 5 of 2017, the Natural Wealth and Resources Contracts (Review and Re-Negotiation of Unconscionable Terms) Act, No 6 of 2017 and the Written Laws (Miscellaneous Amendments) Act, No 7 of 2017.



AngloGold Ashanti's indirect subsidiaries, Samax Resources Ltd. and Geita Gold Mining Ltd. (the Subsidiaries), are parties to a Mine Development Agreement (MDA) in relation to the development and operation of the Geita gold mine in Tanzania (Geita Mine), which governs the relationship between the Subsidiaries and the Government of Tanzania (GoT) in relation to Geita Mine. The MDA was instrumental in the decision to make the significant investment in the development of Geita Mine, at a time of significantly lower gold prices and when Tanzania was an untested jurisdiction for new mine development.



Since starting production almost two decades ago, Geita Mine has been a source of significant benefit to all stakeholders, yielding more than USD1 billion in monetary benefit to the GoT. Last year alone, a total of USD130 million in taxes was paid (borne and taxes collected on behalf of Government) by Geita Mine.



The three pieces of new legislation in question purport to make a number of changes to the operating environment for Tanzania's extractive industries, including those in its mining, and oil and gas sectors. These changes include, among others: the right for the GoT to renegotiate existing MDAs at its discretion; the provision to the GoT of a non-dilutable, free-carried interest of no less than 16% in all mining projects; the right for the Government to acquire up to 50% of any mining asset commensurate with the value of tax benefits provided to the owner of that asset by the GoT; removal of the refund of input VAT incurred; an increase in the rate of revenue royalties from 4% to 6%; requirements for local beneficiation and procurement; and constraints on the operation of off-shore bank accounts.

The bills, which were first tabled for comment on June 29, 2017 will be sent to the Honourable President John P.J. Magafuli for his assent.

Last week, in the interests of safety, AngloGold Ashanti Ghana withdrew employees performing non-essential functions from its idled Obuasi Gold Mine, following the incursion of illegal miners inside the fenced areas of the site. There is no impact on AngloGold Ashanti?s production and All-In Sustaining Costs as the site is not forecast to be in production for at least this year. Remaining employees are performing critical tasks related to maintenance of the site, and also water treatment, provision of medical services and maintenance of electrical facilities that provide power and water to employees? homes and surrounding communities.



This latest development at the site followed the withdrawal of government military protection from the mine on Tuesday, 2 February 2016, after initial incursions on 30 and 31 January 2016. It is important to note that the Ghana Army has a Memorandum of Understanding with the Chamber of Mines, on behalf of its members, to deploy military personnel at mining operations. To AngloGold Ashanti?s knowledge, no other mines with a military presence have been affected.



The situation at the mine is currently calm, though AngloGold Ashanti Ghana remains deeply concerned about the prevailing conditions, with illegal miners continuing to enter the site. If allowed to continue unchecked, illegal mining taking place on parts of the concession, and vandalism of

Randgold Resources Ltd. (?Randgold?)has informed AngloGold Ashanti that it wishes to terminate the conditional Investment Agreement concluded in September 2015, for a joint venture to redevelop the Obuasi Mine, as the proposed investment does not meet Randgold?s investment criteria.



This decision follows concerted efforts by both companies to improve the project?s returns and also to secure an appropriate set of consents from the Government of Ghana, within an ambitious timeframe that would have allowed for a feasibility decision on the redevelopment of the mine in early 2016. Although improvements have been identified, these have not been sufficient to commit to a substantial investment under the prevailing conditions.



The Minister of Lands and Natural Resources of Ghana has approved continuation of Obuasi?s limited operating phase during Q1 2016. Limited operations will be undertaken at reduced cost, compared to 2015, including maintaining the operations, security, environmental management, optimising the feasibility study, as well as ongoing sustainability work.



Obuasi, located in the Ashanti region of Ghana 320 kilometres northwest of the capital Accra, is a large, high-grade deposit with proven and probable ore reserves (as reported by AngloGold Ashanti in its 2014 Annual Report) of 24.53Mt at 6.70g/t for 5.29Moz, part of a substantial mineral resource base.

Loss allocated to equity holders from continuing operations was USD76 million (profit of USD28 million). In addition, headline loss per share was USD23cps (earnings of 11cps).



Outlook

Gold production for the fourth quarter of 2015 is estimated to be between 900kozs to 950kozs, which will result in annual production of between 3.8Mozs to 4.0Mozs. Total cash costs for the fourth quarter are estimated at USD720/oz to USD770/oz, assuming average exchange rates of ZAR13.60/USD, BRL3.80/USD, USD0.70/AUD and AP9.70/USD. Brent Crude Oil at USD48/bl average for the quarter.



Given improved cost performance to date and updated capital expenditure profiles, the company is updating its annual guidance as follows:

* Total cash costs: USD720/oz to USD770/oz (previously USD770/oz to USD820/oz)

* All-in-sustaining costs: USD950/oz to USD980/oz (previously USD1 000/oz to USD1 050/oz)

* Capital expenditure: approximately USD900m (previously USD900m to USD1 000m)



(Assuming average exchange rates of ZAR12.60/USD, BRL 3.32/USD, USD0.75/AUD and AP9.15/USD. Brent Crude Oil at USD53/bl average for the year)



Both production and cost estimates assume neither labour interruptions, power disruptions or changes to asset portfolio and/or operating mines. Other unknown or unpredictable factors could also have material adverse effects on the company's future results.



As in prior years, the fourth quarter earnings will be distorted by year-end accounting adjustments such as reassessment of useful lives and carry value of mining tangible assets, inventory stockpile and investments, reset of environmental rehabilitation provisions, redundancy provisions, direct and indirect and deferred taxation provisions.

AngloGold Ashanti announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, AngloGold Ashanti Holdings plc (?AGAH?), is offering to buy back up to USD810 000 000 in aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 8.5% high-yield bonds that mature in 2020, as part of its strategy to reduce debt and lower interest payments.



AGAH will use cash on hand, following the sale concluded earlier this month by the group of the Cripple Creek - Victor (CC-V) mine in the United States, and borrowings under existing credit facilities if needed, to repurchase this debt. The repurchase will utilise cash that is attracting little or no interest, to eliminate debt on which the company is currently paying 8.5% interest.



AngloGold Ashanti has responded to lower gold prices by cutting overhead expenditure by more than two-thirds since the end of 2012, whilst lowering all-in sustaining costs by about a quarter over the same period. In addition, the group has introduced two new, low-cost mines, closed higher-cost assets, removed unprofitable ounces from its portfolio and sold CC-V for USD820m*, plus a net smelter returns royalty, to reduce net debt. It is now intensifying efficiency efforts to complement cost benefits from weakening local currencies and falling oil prices.



Assuming the offer is fully taken up, AngloGold Ashanti?s annual cash interest expense will decline by about USD69m, to about USD170m. The Company will continue to have significant sources of liquidity, including undrawn headroom in its various revolving credit facilities, of about USD1.1bn, and cash of approximately USD400m (all calculated at current exchange rates). These could be utilised to weather gold price volatility and unforeseen interruptions in production if required.

AngloGold Ashanti Seeks CC-V Partner or Buyer, Receives Mali Approach



AngloGold Ashanti today confirmed that it has initiated a plan to identify a joint venture partner or buyer of its Cripple Creek - Victor (CC-V) mine in the United States, and has also received an approach for the purchase of its stakes in the Sadiola and Yatela mines in Mali.



AngloGold Ashanti is pursuing a range of measures to simplify its portfolio, improve cash flow generation and reduce debt. These steps include plans to realise additional savings from current operations, capture synergies from combining neighbouring mines and infrastructure in South Africa, introduce partners in its Colombia business and enter into a joint venture or sell one of its operating assets. CC-V is a surface mining operation which provides oxidised ore to a crusher and valley leach facility, one of the largest in the world. The mine produced 211,000 ounces of gold in 2014. Production from the mine life extension (MLE1) project, which involved expanding capacity at the heap-leach pad, began in 2011. A further life extension and production expansion project (MLE2), approved in 2012, is in implementation phase and is expected to increase production from 2015.



AngloGold Ashanti has over the past 24 months taken decisive action to cut overhead expenditure by two- thirds while improving the quality of its portfolio by bringing into production two new, low-cost mines, selling some assets, closing others and removing loss-making ounces from ongoing operations. All-in sustaining costs for 2014 were 18% lower than in 2012, with further reductions forecast this year. In line with an objective to simplify and improve the overall quality of its portfolio, the company intends to dispose of its 41% stake in Sadiola and its 40% stake in Yatela, which produced 85,000 and 11,000 attributable ounces of gold respectively, in 2014. AngloGold Ashanti confirms that it has been approached by a potential buyer who meets its qualifying criteria, and a binding bid has been requested.



There can be no assurance, however, that a sale and purchase agreement for these transactions will be entered into or that any sales transactions will be completed. Additional detail on both transactions is available on page 50 of the 2014 Integrated Report released.

Revenue for the quarter lowered to USD1.3 billion (2013: USD1.4 billion). Operating profit jumped to USD149 million (2013: USD80 million), while profit for the period attributable to equity shareholders skyrocketed to USD41 million (2013: USD1 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per ordinary share turned around to USD11cps (2013: loss of USD5cps).



Outlook

The strong performance in the first nine months of 2014 helped AngloGold tighten the production outlook for 2014 to 4.35Moz-USD4.45Moz, at the top end of initial of guidance 4.2Moz - 4.5Moz. This improvement comes despite the sale of the Navachab mine in Namibia in May, losses caused by the earthquake in South Africa, and the transition of the Obuasi Mine to limited operating state by the year-end.



Forecast capital expenditure, initially set at USD1.35 billion - USD1.45 billion, has been lowered to USD1.25 billion - USD1.35 billion, due mainly to savings at the loss-making Obuasi mine. The forecast for all-in sustaining costs has been kept at USD1 025/oz - USD1 075/oz.



A study ahead of the reopening of the Obuasi mine, which has a 8.14Moz proved and probable reserve and 27.4Moz inclusive mineral resource, as a full mechanised operation, is scheduled for completion early next year. The company will use cash flows and facilities to fund the remaining retrenchment costs at the mine during the fourth quarter.

Following the announcement of the proposed corporate restructuring and capital raising on 10 September 2014, AngloGold Ashanti has, as planned, engaged extensively with shareholders holding almost two-thirds of its issued share capital, to solicit feedback on these proposals. The proposed restructuring would create a London-listed entity to house the company?s international assets with the South African assets remaining at AngloGold Ashanti, thus creating two simpler and more focused entities. There has been broad support for the strategic logic of the restructuring, but a number of shareholders have expressed concerns about certain aspects of the proposed transactions, in particular the quantum of the equity capital raising needed to enable the restructuring to be implemented in accordance with regulatory and other requirements.



AngloGold Ashanti has, therefore, decided not to proceed with the restructuring and capital raising, as currently proposed. The company will continue to evaluate all options to address debt levels and unlock value, taking into account the feedback from its shareholders and its business needs. AngloGold Ashanti has a world class portfolio of assets, growth projects and an excellent track record of transforming its business to improve efficiency and competitiveness over the past two years, to deliver a record safety performance alongside production growth, operating and overhead cost reduction and improved cash flows.



Reducing current high debt levels and improving overall financial flexibility remain priorities for AngloGold Ashanti, which will now intensify its focus on value creation opportunities deliverable within its current structure. The company will continue to aggressively identify and implement further operational efficiencies, reduce overhead structures and pursue other initiatives to improve underlying business performance. The company will also accelerate actions to strengthen its balance sheet including debt reduction, portfolio simplification and options to unlock value from its Colombian portfolio.



AngloGold Ashanti?s Board and management would like to thank shareholders for their ongoing input and stakeholders, regulators and representatives of organised labour, for their support. Further to the cautionary announcement dated 10 September 2014, caution is no longer required to be exercised by shareholders when dealing in AngloGold Ashanti securities.

AngloGold announced that its board of directors has resolved to request the cancellation of the listing of the Company's ordinary shares and depositary interests of ZAR 0.25 each (ISIN: ZAE000043485) (together, the "Securities") on the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and the cancellation of the admission to trading of the Securities on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange plc (the "LSE"). In connection with the proposed delisting, the board of AngloGold has also resolved to terminate the Company's UK depositary interest programme. This programme was established in 2012 to facilitate trading of the Company?s shares on the LSE.



Reasons for the delisting

AngloGold has decided to apply for the voluntary delisting of its Securities because of the lack of liquidity on the LSE and the minimum number of Securities held in the UK. The vast majority of trading in AngloGold stock takes place through the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (the "JSE") and New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE"), and AngloGold has further listings on the Ghana Stock Exchange (the "GhSE") and Australian Securities Exchange (the "ASX"). AngloGold wishes to streamline its administrative procedures and reduce costs arising from listings on multiple stock exchanges.



As the volume of trading on the Securities on the LSE is low and the Company's shares will continue to be traded on the JSE, the NYSE, the GhSE and the ASX, AngloGold believes the impact on its shareholders of delisting from the LSE will be minimal. During the past five years, for similar reasons, the Company has also cancelled its respective listings in Brussels and Paris.



Expected delisting timetable

Application has been made to the UK Listing Authority for the Securities to be removed from the Official List, and to the LSE for the Securities to be removed from trading. The last day of dealings in the Securities on the LSE is expected to be 19 September 2014. The cancellation of the listing and of trading in the Securities on the LSE is expected to take effect at or about 08:00 on 22 September 2014.

AngloGold is in the process of safely restarting its Great Noligwa and Moab Khotsong mines which were halted following a 5.3 magnitude earthquake that originated in the vicinity of the town of Stilfontein, on August 5.



The mines are being restarted in a phased fashion, following evaluation of seismic activity in the area and after thorough inspections of vertical shafts and horizontal underground infrastructure. Work has been underway over the past three days to complete these inspections ahead of the first production shift scheduled to start tonight, Monday August 11. Repairs to affected areas and equipment are ongoing.



Based on the inspections to date, ongoing work underground and on surface, and an understanding of the likely power-supply scenarios, Assuming no further tremors affect production, AngloGold estimates that the interruption to operations resulting from last week?s earthquake will result in lost output of about 30 000oz of gold. This also includes down time at the Mine Waste Solutions surface operation, which was affected by an extended power interruption, and also down time at the neighbouring Kopanang mine which was taken off line to undertake a precautionary inspection of infrastructure. This estimate of lost production, and the consequential impact on unit costs, may be adjusted higher or lower as our recovery work continues.



In total, 3 300 people working underground when the earthquake occurred were safely hoisted to surface within seven hours of the event. Twenty-eight people were treated for minor injuries and discharged, while trauma counselling was provided to those employees and contractors who required it. Supervisors at those mines have been trained to identify our colleagues who may be suffering from post-traumatic stress, and to ensure that they receive proper care.



AngloGold is actively involved with local government and civic organisations in providing assistance where necessary as the local community continues to recover from this incident.

Revenue for the interim period lowered to USD2.7 billion (USD2.8 billion). Gross profit also decreased to USD547 million (USD765 million). Operating profit came in at USD404 million (loss of USD2.8 billion). Loss attributable to equity shareholders narrowed to USD41 million (loss of USD1.9 billion). In addition, a headline loss per share of USD13cps was recorded (earnings of USD96cps).



Outlook

Production guidance is estimated to be broadly in line with the guidance of the previous quarter of between 1 060kozs to 1 090kozs at total cash costs of USD850/oz to USD890/oz, assuming average exchange rates against the US dollar of 10.65 (Rand), 2.28 (Brazil Real), 0.93 (AUD) and 8.55 (Argentina Peso). Fuel is estimated at USD110/bl. The production estimate factors' in the lost ounces due to the sale of Navachab, winding down of production at Obuasi, Siguiri production levels normalizing and Tropicana recovering after resolving challenges with plant availability in July. In addition, production losses following an earthquake near the Vaal River Operation on 5 August, are preliminarily estimated at as much as 30 000oz, based on early assessments of damage to underground and surface mining and power infrastructure, as well as the estimated time to safely ramp up production to normal levels. Safety will not be compromised for production. AngloGold Ashanti retains the right to revise this guidance figure, should new information on the impacts of the seismic event come to light. Annual guidance remains intact, in line with the appropriate currency forecasts.



Other known or unpredictable factors could also have material adverse effects on our future results. Please refer to the Risk Factors section in AngloGold's Form 20-F for the year ended 31 December 2013 that was filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on 14 April 2014 and available on the SEC's homepage at http://www.sec.gov.

AngloGold Ashanti confirms that each one of the 3,300 people working underground at its Great Noligwa and Moab Khotsong mines early yesterday afternoon, when a 5.3 magnitude earthquake struck South Africa?s North West province, were safely hoisted to surface by 7:30pm yesterday. Twenty-eight employees who sustained minor injuries as a result of the event have received medical treatment and all have been discharged. Counsellors have assisted 17 employees with treatment for shock, and will remain on hand for others who may require their services. Importantly, all safety systems and protocols were observed and all employees and contractors were instrumental in ensuring the mine was cleared safely.



AngloGold Ashanti?s own engineers and specialists, together with external seismology experts, are conducting intensive, real-time intensive monitoring of seismic activity in the region. Once it is deemed safe for inspection crews to proceed underground, a thorough examination of all underground infrastructure, as well as ore passes, haulages and working areas, will take place. At this stage, vertical infrastructure is functioning well and the inspections conducted immediately after the earthquake suggests that these shafts sustained only minor damage. Electronic systems that monitor various aspects of our underground areas are also working normally, allowing us to remotely draw information from a large portion of both mines. In parallel with this process, AngloGold Ashanti is in close contact with engineers from Eskom Holdings Ltd., the state-owned power provider, to establish when fully redundant electricity supply will be restored. AngloGold Ashanti would like to commend Eskom for working quickly to restore the current feed to our Vaal River Operations, which has allowed for cooling of underground areas to continue.



Once it is clear that we have the correct power feed and underground areas and infrastructure are deemed safe, a decision will be made on resuming normal shifts. At this stage, we will wait for the appropriate underground conditions and then conduct thorough assessments. AngloGold Ashanti intends to provide a more detailed update on the status of the underground operations on Monday, August 11. AngloGold Ashanti?s West Wits operating region and the Kopanang mine in the Vaal River area, were not affected by the event.

Shareholders are referred to today?s announcement by Rand Refinery regarding a loan facility extended to it by certain of its shareholders, as a precautionary measure. This follows challenges encountered in the implementation of a new Enterprise Resource Planning system at the refinery. AngloGold Ashanti confirms its participation in the loan facility. AngloGold Ashanti owns a 42.41% stake in the Rand Refinery and accounts for it using the equity accounting method as an associate. AngloGold Ashanti expects to make a provision in its accounts for $51m, which will impact second quarter earnings scheduled for release on August 11.



In addition, AngloGold Ashanti notes that costs incurred in the previously announced closure of the Yatela mine in Mali, and ongoing restructuring at its Obuasi mine in Ghana, will also impact earnings for the second quarter. Over the past 18 months, AngloGold Ashanti has taken decisive steps to adapt to the sharp decline in the gold price by reducing costs and improving the overall quality of its portfolio to improve cash flow and returns. Part of that strategy is the closure of its Yatela mine in Mali and implementation of a range of interventions to address historic underperformance of the Obuasi mine in Ghana.

AngloGold advised that South Africa's Labour Court has today ruled that a strike threatened by the Association of Construction and Mineworkers Union (AMCU) at the company's South Africa mines would be unprotected, and that employees should continue to proceed to work. The ruling given by Judge Edwin Molahlegi, on behalf of Judge Hamilton Cele, ruled that AMCU must return to court on 14 March 2014 to explain why this interim interdict that was applied for by the Chamber of Mines should not be made permanent.



AMCU sought to proceed with strike action on a number of gold mining operations with effect from 20 January 2014 in relation to the wage agreement that was finalised in September 2013 in the gold sector between the employers and the National Union of Mineworkers, UASA and Solidarity and which was applied to all employees in the represented bargaining units. Together, these three unions represented 72% of employees in the sector. The agreed increases and improved benefits were backdated to 1 July 2013 and all employees, irrespective of union affiliation, have been in receipt of these since September 2013.



An urgent interdict brought to the court by the gold producers was heard on 19 January, and Judge Cele ordered that strike action be held in abeyance until today's ruling.

AngloGold confirms that the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) has served notice that it intends to call a strike by its members at the company's South Africa operations, starting Thursday, 23 January 2014. The strike will also affect some mines owned and operated by other large, South African gold producers covered by the industry's collective bargaining structure.



The strike has been called in respect of the 2013 wage negotiations. These negotiations were concluded on 10 September 2013 when a multi-year agreement was reached between South Africa's major gold producers, represented in a collective bargaining forum by the Chamber of Mines, and three of the four unions (the National Union of Mineworkers, United Association of South Africa and Solidarity), representing 72% of the gold sector's employees at the time. AMCU, which represented about 17% of employees at the time and participated in the central level negotiations, did not accept the agreement.

The September 2013 agreement was made applicable to all employees who form part of the bargaining unit, irrespective of their trade union affiliation. The agreed increase, of between 7.5% and 8% in the first year, was backdated to 1 July 2013. AMCU members have all benefited from this increase. AMCU's certificate applying to this strike was obtained from the Council for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration in September 2013, prior to the agreement being made applicable to all employees in the bargaining unit.



In terms of the "peace clause" contained in the existing wage agreement: there can be no strike action regarding terms and conditions of employment during the existence of the agreement; the issue of conditions of employment has been settled for the duration of the agreement; and no demands may be made during the course of the agreement. Accordingly, any strike action about terms and conditions of employment during the existence of the agreement will be in contravention of the "peace clause", and thus unprotected. Any strike action by AMCU members will be opposed by the gold producers covered in the wage agreement.

Both of AngloGold's new mines, Kibali and Tropicana, can produce gold at an average cost of USD700/oz, 22% less than the group's average cost in the second quarter of 2013.

AngloGold announced that the Tropicana Gold Mine in Western Australia began production today, 26 September 2013, ahead of schedule and within budget, adding new ounces at below the company's current average cost structure and so improving the overall quality of its portfolio.



Located 330km east-northeast of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia, Tropicana was originally forecast to begin production in the fourth quarter of this year. The focus will now be on achieving a smooth ramp up of the processing plant to nameplate throughput capacity of 5.5 million tonnes per annum within three months. AngloGold Ashanti, the project manager and operator, owns a 70% stake in Tropicana and Independence Group (I) owns the remaining 30%.



I Managing Director Chris Bonwick has thanked AngloGold Ashanti, its employees and the contractors for completing the project safely, on budget and ahead of schedule.



The estimated capital expenditure for the project remained unchanged at between AUD820-AUD845 million on a 100% basis. In the first three years the new mine will average production of between 470 000 - 490 000 ounces per annum (100% project) at cash costs of between AUD590/oz - AUD630/oz.



In Tropicana and also Kibali in the Democratic Republic of Congo, AngloGold has two new mines that have started production in the space of days with a combined attributable annual production of as much as 600 000oz from next year. As project capital expenditure declines, the management team will focus on realising about AUD460m in combined savings from corporate overheads and exploration activities next year, compared with 2012. A project is also underway to remove as much as AUD500m in direct operating-cost savings from operations over about 18 months. AngloGold owns 45% of Kibali. Tropicana (100%) has Total Mineral Resources of 118 million tonnes grading 2.08 grams/tonne for 7.89 million ounces and an Ore Reserve of 57.1 Mt at 2.12 g/t for 3.90 Moz (see AngloGold Ashanti website at www.anglogoldashanti.com for details of the Mineral Resource and Ore Reserve).

AngloGold reported that the Kibali Gold Mine, a joint venture with Randgold Resources, has successfully delivered its first gold production early and within budget to further improve the overall quality of its portfolio by introducing new ounces at costs lower than its current average.



Kibali, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, will have an estimated annual production of about 600,000oz of gold from reserves of 11Moz and resources of 21Moz. AngloGold and Randgold, which project managed Kibali's development and will operate the mine, each own a 45% stake in the asset and Sokimo, a state-owned company, owns the remaining 10%. The mine is being developed in two concurrent phases, initially as an open pit operation, with the underground mine scheduled to access ore in 2015.



By 2014, Kibali will provide employment to more than 2 500 people, comprising mainly Congolese nationals. Already, more than half of all senior managers are Congolese and about 100 Congolese have received training as operators at Randgold's West African mines. Preference will also be given to local suppliers of goods and services to ensure the benefit to the local community is maximised. Significant benefits will also accrue to the DRC through taxes and royalties through the life of the mine.



In Kibali and also Tropicana, in Western Australia, AngloGold Ashanti has two new mines slated to start production in the space of days with a combined attributable annual production of as much as 600 000oz from next year. As project capital expenditure declines, the management team will focus on realising about USD460 million in combined savings from corporate overheads and exploration activities next year, compared with 2012. A project is also underway to remove as much as USD500 million in direct operating-cost savings from operations over about 18 months. AngloGold owns 70% of the Tropicana mine.

AngloGold can confirm that it has made an offer to its unionised employees in South Africa, under the auspices of the gold industry's collective bargaining framework, with the aim of reaching a two-year wage settlement. The National Union of Mineworkers, Solidarity and UASA (United Association of South Africa) have indicated their members will accept the improved offer and employees, who had embarked on a strike from 3 September 2013 at the Vaal River Operations, have reported for work. The focus will be on a safe resumption of mining and ramp-up of production.



AngloGold is awaiting receipt of a formal acceptance of the offer by the unions. Under the agreement, pay levels will rise by between 7.5% and 8.0% in the first year effective as at 1 July 2013 and employees will receive Consumer Price Index (CPI)-linked increases in the second year, effective 1 July 2014.

AngloGold Ashanti posted a six-fold improvement in adjusted headline earnings from the previous quarter to USD113m as the costs were better than guidance and the company made steady progress recovering from the strike action in South Africa in the last quarter of 2012. A continued emphasis on cost optimisation saw total cash costs beat guidance at USD894/oz, with further improvements during the year as focus was sharpened on generating sustainable free cash flow from an improving portfolio. The company's two key new projects Tropicana in Australia and Kibali in the DRC are on schedule to pour their first gold by the end of the year adding half-a- million ounces of new production.



Production was 899,000oz at a total cash cost of USD894/oz, compared to 859,000oz at USD967/oz the previous quarter. About 20,000oz was lost to a lightning strike which interrupted power to the West Wits operations, while a delay in commissioning of a new mill at Geita also cost some production. AngloGold Ashanti's continued focus on ensuring sustainable free cash flows will see the company target further operating-cost reductions through corporate restructuring; direct operating cost savings of USD100/oz; and the development of higher quality near-term ounces. Further capital expenditure reductions will be explored and work is underway to rationalise exploration costs and pursue asset sales to improve the quality of the portfolio. The focus on productivity and cost is especially crucial now, given the recent weakness in the gold price, Venkat said. He will work with his executive team in the coming months to define the company?s approach to realising value for shareholders.



Production in the second quarter is forecast* at 900,000oz to 950,000oz at total cash cost of USD900/oz to USD950/oz. This takes into account the number of public holidays in South Africa as well as annual power tariff increases and the winter power tariffs charged.

Revenue for the quarter decreased to USD1.5 billion (March 2012: USD1.8 billion). Gross profit fell to USD434 million (March 2012: USD738 million), while operating profit decreased to USD264 million (March 2012: USD605 million), and profit attributable to equity shareholders declined to USD239 million (March 2012: USD581 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per ordinary share was lower at US67 cents per share (March 2012: US 147 cents per share).



Dividend

The directors declared dividend number 117 of 50 South African cents per share for the quarter ended 31 March 2013.



Outlook

Gold production for the second quarter of 2013 is estimated at 900,000oz to 950,000oz. Total cash costs are estimated at between USD900/oz-USD950/oz at an average exchange rate of R9.16/USD, BRL2.00/USD, AUD1.03/USD and AP5.19/USD and fuel at USD102/barrel. This includes the impact of public holidays over the period, as well as annual power tariff increases and winter power tariffs in South Africa. Both cost and production estimates are subject to unfavourable revisions in light of recent labour related challenges experienced in South Africa.



Other known or unpredictable factors could also have material adverse effects on our future results.

AngloGold's two main operational sites in the West Wits region in South Africa - Mponeng and Tau Tona - had all main power interrupted between Wednesday, March 13 and Friday, March 15, after a fire caused by lightning damaged a transformer at a main regional substation belonging to power utility Eskom. While emergency procedures allowed safe and prompt evacuation of all underground work areas, continued disruption of power to the mines due to the unplanned interruption of the main Eskom electricity supply halted all but essential water pumping services on those two operations. There was not sufficient power to run ventilation and cooling plants, hoisting infrastructure or metallurgical plants and other associated production activities.



Eskom has partially restored power until the transformer is repaired. Tau Tona resumed underground mining activities on Friday March 15. Mponeng resumed most of its operations on 18 March, apart from certain project and hoisting activities in order to enable us to operate within current electricity supply constraints. Eskom has advised that the work to repair the damage is receiving urgent attention to restore permanent supply at the regional substation. While all efforts will be made to recover output once power is fully restored, production for the first quarter will be affected. The total adverse impact from this incident on first quarter 2013 gold production is likely to be in the region of 20 000 ounces, with consequential impact on unit costs. Details of the lost output will be made available after the quarter-end. The company's Vaal River operations have not been affected.

AngloGold Ashanti report that normal operations have resumed at its Mponeng mine in South Africa following successful engagement with employee and trade union representatives over the past week. All mining and processing at Mponeng was suspended on November 6, after two underground sit-ins by a group of workers and some vandalism to property led to management concerns that safe working conditions could not be assured. Talks between AngloGold Ashanti?s South Africa regional management and representatives of unions and associations in the intervening period culminated in the agreement by all parties of a set of guiding principles that will govern safe work and labour relations at Mponeng in future.



This document, signed by the local branches of the National Union of Mineworkers, Solidarity, The United Association of South Africa and worker representatives of The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union at a public meeting on 10 November, covers a series of issues including: the importance of safety; freedom of association for all workers; transparency and honesty in all interactions; respect for rule of law and rejection of intimidation; a collective commitment to effective dispute resolution; and acknowledgement of the sanctity of collective bargaining. The return to work at Mponeng was based on the same wages and working conditions applicable at the company?s other South African operations.



With the successful restart of Mponeng, all six of AngloGold Ashanti?s underground mines in South Africa, as well as its surface operations, are now operating and ramping up to full production. As discussed at the third-quarter results presentation on 8 November, AngloGold Ashanti will evaluate underground conditions in reviewing the time needed for Mponeng?s production build-up, before releasing cost and production guidance for the fourth quarter.

(Official Notice)
AngloGold Ashanti posted adjusted headline earnings of USD235m in the third quarter, during which time it continued to advance its major growth projects in Australia, the United States and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Overall production in the quarter was primarily affected by labour unrest in South Africa which led to an unprotected strike which halted the company?s six South African mines for more than a month, as well as lower-than-anticipated production from the Obuasi mine in Ghana. The unprotected strike action in South Africa has now been resolved at all but one of the mines and the decision was taken last month to cancel the underground development contract at Obuasi to improve the operation's flexibility.



In order to maintain its balance sheet flexibility, AngloGold Ashanti has reduced its capital expenditure budget for this year by USD200m to between USD2bn and USD2.1bn. The company is also conducting a study of its corporate costs, focusing on drawing fewer, higher-quality ounces from its South African mines and reviewing the timing of projects including the Sadiola Deeps project in Mali and the Mongbwalu project in the Democratic Republic of Congo.



As of 2 November, the unprotected strike, which started on 20 September at the Kopanang mine and spread to the balance of the Vaal River operations and the three West Wits mines on 25 September, cost AngloGold Ashanti about 250,000oz in production lost during the fourth quarter to the work stoppage and the slow ramp- up of production, which is complicated by the depth of the mines and the protracted period of inactivity. While this figure may rise due to the resumption of the strike at the Mponeng mine on 3 November, concerted efforts are underway to resolve the situation and return the operations to normality.



Given the continued work stoppage at the Mponeng mine and uncertainty around the timing of a resolution and also the consequent ramp-up of production, AngloGold Ashanti believes it prudent to only provide quarterly cost and production guidance once a resolution is reached, normal work patterns have resumed and there is greater visibility of future production.

Revenue decreased to USD1.7 billion (September 2011: USD1.9 billion) for the three months ended 30 September 2012. Gross profit fell to USD512 million (September 2011: USD815 million) and operating profit decreased to USD305 million (September 2011: USD648 million). In addition, headline earnings per share decreased to US46cps (September 2011: US123cps).



Dividend

The directors declared interim dividend of ZAR50cps for the quarter ended 30 September 2012.



Outlook

Given the continued work stoppage at the Mponeng mine and the uncertainty around the timing of a resolution and also the consequent ramp-up of production, AngloGold Ashanti believes it prudent to withhold quarterly cost and production guidance for the fourth quarter at this time. Once a resolution is reached, normal work patterns have resumed and there is greater visibility of future production, the company will review this position. As in prior years, the fourth quarter earnings will be distorted by year-end accounting adjustments such as reassessment of useful lives, re-set of environment and rehabilitation provisions, direct and indirect tax and inventory provisions. In addition the fourth quarter 2012 will also include the adverse impact of the South African strikes and the cost of changeover of the Obuasi mining contract.

Following a second sit-in by dayshift employees yesterday at AngloGold Ashanti?s Mponeng mine, management has again been forced to halt mining and processing activity. The purported reason for these sit-ins relate to the timing of the payment of a safety incentive, planned for tomorrow, 7 November.2012 These sit-ins follow the unprotected strike, which started on 25 September and did not end as hoped on 26 October when employees returned to work. Since then, a strike, a series of underground sit-ins, acts of vandalism and threats of violence have prevented the mine from operating normally.



AngloGold Ashanti has been placed in a position where it cannot continue allowing employees to proceed to work, given that the safety of employees and underground assets cannot be assured. Striking employees at Mponeng will receive no pay while this situation persists. Management intends to continue engagement with a wide range of employee representatives and will seek assurances that there will not be a repeat of recent events before reassessing the situation. AngloGold Ashanti will also cooperate fully with authorities to ensure criminal acts are investigated and internal disciplinary procedures followed where necessary.



Meanwhile, work has continued as normal at AngloGold Ashanti?s remaining South African mines: Savuka and TauTona, in the West Wits region, and Great Noligwa, Kopanang, Moab Khotsong, Mine Waste Solutions and the Surface Operations, all in the Vaal River region. These operations continue the process of ramping up to full production.

(Official Notice)
AngloGold employees at the Mponeng mine did not proceed underground for the 1st of November 2012 day shift due to an illegal sit-in by about 100 of their colleagues and on 2 November 2012 a similar situation occurred with about 200 miners at the TauTona mine. In both cases these people, who represent less than 2% and 5% of the respective workforces, returned safely to surface after holding talks with the mines' management.



At Mponeng, in addition to the work interruption underground, a building where miners' headlamps are stored and dispensed was damaged. Inspection and repair of the damaged building will take place over the coming days, with the result that two days of normal work activity have been lost at Mponeng and one at TauTona. Work at both mines is expected to resume as normal at the night shift on Sunday 4 November.



Meanwhile, work has continued as normal at AngloGold Ashanti's remaining South African mines: Savuka, in the West Wits region, and in the Vaal River region -- the Great Noligwa, Kopanang and Moab Khotsong mines, along with the Surface Operations, which produce gold and uranium. These operations all continue the process of ramping up to full production.

(Official Notice)
AngloGold Ashanti confirms that its mines in South Africa remain at a standstill amid the unprotected strike which began on 20 September 2012 at the Kopanang operation and spread to the remaining five operations on 25 September 2012. Our priority remains to protect the safety of our employees and the communities in which we operate and we continue to work with the authorities to that end. AngloGold Ashanti has safeguarded its own rights in relation to the strike by obtaining a court interdict to formally declare the work stoppage unprotected.



Our stance on the strike remains clear:

*We are deeply disappointed that our employees have chosen to break their commitment to the current wage agreement and collective bargaining structures

*We do not intend to reward broken commitments, violence and threats of intimidation

*We remain committed to our employees and the collective bargaining processes as a way to resolve our differences with recognized unions and associations

*We are open to consider ideas to bring forward negotiations and work together with our social partners to renew our commitment to, and delivery on, our social compact for the mining industry, as agreed in the Mining Charter

*If striking employees return to work and engage in constructive discussion we will find a pathway to a sustainable and shared future

*If the current unprotected strike continues, it compounds risks of a premature downsizing of AngloGold Ashanti?s South African operations

*In a country where roughly one in four people do not have work, it is incomprehensible that strikers are engaged in activities that threaten jobs in a cornerstone industry that is central to South Africa?s growth aspirations, and where wage rates are highly competitive as compared to other labour intensive sectors in the country.

(Official Notice)
Workers at AngloGold Ashanti's South African operations have embarked on an unprotected strike, preventing the commencement of the night shift on September 25. Workers at the West Wits and balance of the Vaal River Regions' operations joined those at Kopanang, who embarked on an unprotected work stoppage on September 20. This interruption to normal mining and processing operations comes amid unprocedural disruptions elsewhere in South Africa?s gold and platinum mining sectors.



AngloGold Ashanti?s priority is to maintain safety, peace and stability at each site and to continue a constructive dialogue with all employees, their representatives and other stakeholders. Discussions are being held with representative trade unions on an industry-wide basis through the Chamber of Mines. No formal demands have yet been presented to management by the striking workers. The company is following the necessary standard legal procedures in order to have the latest work stoppage formally declared as unprotected. AngloGold Ashanti will provide updates as and when appropriate.



21-Sep-2012
(Official Notice)
An unprotected strike at AngloGold Ashanti's Kopanang operations prevented the night shift from taking place on 20 September 2012. The strike is currently confined to this single mine. Management's priority is to maintain safety, peace and stability at the site and to continue a constructive dialogue with all employees, their representatives and other stakeholders. The company is following the necessary procedures and an update will be provided at the appropriate time.



The Kopanang mine produced 90 000 ounces of gold in the first half of this year, which was about 4% of AngloGold Ashanti's total production over that period. AngloGold Ashanti's South Africa operations accounted for approximately 32% of total group production during the first half of the year. Approximately 5 000 workers are employed at Kopanang, which lies roughly 200km southwest of Johannesburg.

Outlook

Gold production for the third quarter of 2012 is estimated at between 1.07Moz and 1.1Moz. Total cash costs are estimated at between USD835-USD865/oz at an average exchange rate of ZAR8.15/USD, BRL1.85/USD, AUD1.00/USD and ARS4.60/USD and fuel at USD100/barrel.

As mentioned in the fourth quarter earnings release on 15 February 2012, the situation remains that both estimates could see some downside risk in the light of safety related stoppages and other unforeseen factors. AngloGold may not be able to reach the goals or meet the expectations set out in this report.

AngloGold reported strong second quarter gold production of 1.073Moz, which represents a 9% improvement on the first quarter, at an estimated total cash cost of USD800/oz - USD805/oz. The result is better than the company's market guidance for the quarter of 1.04Moz at a total cash cost of USD840/oz - USD845/oz, due largely to strong operating performances from the group's Continental Africa region and the Americas region. Production from the South African operations also improved over the period, and was 18% higher than the first quarter of 2012.



Adjusted headline earnings for the quarter are estimated at between USD240 million to USD255 million. When compared with the first quarter of 2012, exploration and other expenditures were higher, though in line with annual guidance provided in February of this year. In addition, this level of adjusted headline earnings reflects a lower average gold price received during the quarter when compared to the previous quarter, lower uranium and silver by-product credits, higher gold inventory levels that were sold only subsequent to the end of the quarter due to the timing of gold shipments and a non-recurring one-time deferred tax credit that was included in the first quarter. AngloGold Ashanti will report its operating and reviewed financial results to the market on 6 August 2012.

According to Business Day, AngloGold's proposition to devise a modern way of cautiously and gainfully extracting gold from South Africa's deep and dangerous mines is beginning to materialise and could be a huge development for the struggling industry. AngloGold is pioneering new ways to mine gold from its mines, such as Mponeng, which is the deepest in the world at more than 4km below surface. Mark Cutifani, CEO of AngloGold, said on 29 June for the first time in a century, the company extracted a 30m section of reef using a horizontal raise drill. He added that if the technology could be made more competent, it would change the face of deep level mining in South Africa. This year and the next AngloGold would be testing its ideas and prototypes so that by 2014 the company will pull all its strategies together and attempt to use them in a single mine.

Outlook

Gold production for the second quarter of 2012 is estimated at 1.04Moz. Total cash costs are estimated at between USD840-USD845/oz at an average exchange rate of R7.70/USD, BRL1.73/USD, AUD0.97/USD and ARS4.40/USD and fuel at USD125/barrel. No change to gold production guidance for 2012 which is estimated at 4.3Moz to 4.4Moz on the back of a stronger second-half year. Total cash costs in 2012 are estimated at between USD780-USD805/oz at an average exchange rate of R7.40/USD, BRL1.70/USD, AUD1.01/USD and ARS4.43/USD and fuel at USD110/barrel. As mentioned in the fourth quarter earnings release on 15 February 2012, the situation remains that both estimates could see some downside risk in the light of safety related and other unforeseen factors.
10-Apr-2012
(Official Notice)
On 15 February 2012 AngloGold, at the time of its full year 2011 earnings release, guided first quarter 2012 gold production at 1.03Mozs at total cash costs of USD820/oz - USD835/oz at an average exchange rate of R7.40/USD1.00, BRL1.70/USD1.00, AUD1.01/USD1.00, and AP4.35/USD1.00 and fuel at USD110/barrel. The company further pointed out that both these estimates could see downside risk in the light of safety related stoppages which were being experienced at its South African mines.



Safety stoppages continued to negatively impact group production from its South African mines during the first quarter of 2012. In total, safety stoppages and the subsequent ramp-up associated with safely restarting ultra- deep mining areas, resulted in 76,000oz of lost production in the three months ended March 31. AngloGold's first-quarter 2012 gold production was around 980 000oz, which is also likely to have a consequential impact on unit total cash costs, partially mitigated by weaker rand exchange rates.



The balance of the group's operating regions, namely Australia, Continental Africa and the Americas, met their production targets for the quarter. Notably, strong performances were delivered during the period by the Cripple Creek - Victor, Geita and Siguiri mines, offsetting a weaker result from Obuasi, where unplanned repairs to the base of the main shaft hampered first quarter output.



AngloGold and its joint venture partners continue to closely monitor the situation in Mali, following last month's military coup and the economic sanctions that were imposed until recently, on the landlocked country by the Economic Community of West African States. The company's three joint venture operations in Mali - Morila, Yatela and Sadiola - operated as normal and the company continued to meet its fiscal obligations to the country's exchequer over this period.



In addition, AngloGold will report a deferred tax charge resulting from the increase in Ghana's corporate tax rate, as applicable to AngloGold under its Stability Agreement, from 25% to 30%. This will, however, be more than compensated for by a deferred tax credit created by the reduction in South Africa's marginal tax rate applicable to gold mining companies from 43% to 34%, following the introduction of withholding tax on dividends that replaced the secondary tax on companies.

The company will continue to seek quarterly dividends in line with improved operating and financial performance, provided there is no threat to its investment-grade-credit rating and there is adequate allowance for funding its growth projects.



Outlook

According to Business Report, AngloGold has scaled back plans to extend the world's deepest mine in favour of larger-scale local projects to speed-up returns and cut risks. CE Mark Cutifani told investors that the original plan's duration was "too long" and therefore the "the return is not justified." Executive vice-president for South Africa, Mike O'Hara, said that instead of a USD3 billion, ten-year programme for a new shaft at the Mponeng Mine, the group will ask its board in early 2012 to approve the use of ramps to access deeper levels. AngloGold will also expand faster outside of South Africa to reach its output target of 5.5 million ounces by 2015.

According to Business Report Anglogold Ashanti, the third biggest gold producer, reported record breaking third quarter profits, beating forecasts as bullion's bull run filled its coffers. The average gold price was up at about 13 percent to just over USD1700 an ounce during the quarter to the end of September compared with previous one. Chief executive Mark Cutifani said in a conference call that the group expected to turn in another strong fourth quarter. Cutifani added that the group would also generate enough cash to fund its expansion projects and remained on track to lift production to a forecast 5.5 million ounces by 2014.

Revenue increased to USD1.9 billion (September 2010: USD1.5 billion) for the three months ended 30 September 2011. Gross profit rose to USD815 million (September 2010: USD357 million) and operating profit grew to USD648 million (September 2010: USD178 million). In addition, headline earnings per share increased to USD123cps (September 2010: USD15cps).



Dividend

The directors declared interim dividend of ZAR90cps for the quarter ended 30 September 2011.



Prospects

Given the increased safety stoppages in South Africa, the ongoing water shortages at CC-V and the slower ramp up at Sunrise Dam, full year 2011 production is now estimated to be around 4.33Moz. Total cash costs are estimated at between USD735-USD745/oz on the basis of weaker local operating currency assumptions for the year (R7.10/USD, AUD1.03/USD, BRL1.66/USD and AP4.12/USD) and fuel at USD111/barrel. This translates to a fourth quarter estimated production of approximately 1.11Moz at a total cash cost of approximately USD790/oz, this assumes an exchange rate of R7.50/USD, AUD1.00/USD, BRL1.75/USD and AP4.25/USD and fuel at USD105/barrel. The increase in fourth quarter total cash costs are driven mainly by deferred stripping and inventory charges. As in prior years, the fourth quarter numbers will be distorted by year-end accounting adjustments such as re- assessment of useful asset lives, rehabilitation, direct and indirect tax, and inventory provisions

According to Business Report, AngloGold aims to use new technology to go 5km below the surface to reach 70 million ounces of gold. The drive to reach a resource worth R928 billion would see blasting eliminated and remove humans from the stopes where gold was extracted, Mike MacFarlane, AngloGold's senior vice-president for technology, told a mining automation conference. "Gold production is in decline. Our aim is to arrest that decline or even increase production," he commented. "We are standing on the edge of a major shift in the way people think about underground mining. And it's a shift that you see just once in a 30- to 40-year timeframe," Mr MacFarlane said. AngloGold operates the world's deepest mines; its Mponeng operation is about 4km deep. But MacFarlane said tens of millions of ounces could not be reached and so the ore "was not making any money and there is no pull for investment".

Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders was recorded at USD711 million (June 2010: Loss of USD30 million). Headline earnings per share was recorded at US186cps (June 2010: Headline loss per share of US3cps).



Dividend

The directors declared Interim Dividend No. 110 of 90 (Interim Dividend No. 108: 65) South African cents per ordinary share for the six months ended 30 June 2011.



Prospects

Operations were impacted during the first half of the year by a number of factors, which would in themselves have led annual production to the lower end of initial guidance of 4.55Moz to 4.75Moz. These include flooding at Sunrise Dam, the decision to stop mining the shaft pillar at TauTona for safety reasons, drought at Cripple Creek - Victor which impacted optimal functioning of the leach pad and lower-than-anticipated grades at Siguiri. As a result of the operational impacts as outlined above and the strike in South Africa at the end of July, the year guidance is being revised to around 4.45Moz. The lower production, along with higher fuel prices and stronger local operating currencies in Brazil and South Africa result in total cash cost guidance of USD725/oz-USD740/oz, This assumes an oil price of USD114/barrel and average exchange rate of R6.83/USD and equivalent Australian dollar and Brazilian real rates. Third quarter production is expected to be around 1.11Moz at a total cash cost of USD775/oz. This assumes an oil price of USD115/barrel and average exchange rate of R6.75/USD and equivalent Australian dollar and Brazilian real rates.

The ore reserve estimate for the Tropicana Gold Project in Western Australia has increased by 540 000 ounces.



The Tropicana Gold Project, 330 kilometres east-northeast of Kalgoorlie, is part of the Tropicana Joint Venture, owned by AngloGold Ashanti Australia Ltd (70% and manager) and Independence Group NL (30%). The mineral resource and ore reserve at Tropicana was updated as at June 30, 2011, to reflect recent increases in the gold price and changes to the resource model through increased drill density in the Havana South and Boston Shaker zones.



The measured, indicated and inferred mineral resource estimate increased slightly to 78.6 million tonnes grading 2.12 grams Au per tonne containing 5.36 million ounces of gold, while the ore reserve estimate increased more significantly to 56.4 Mt grading 2.16 g/t Au containing 3.91 Moz of gold.

AngloGold Ashanti confirmed that it has offered to sell to Blyvooruitzicht Gold Mining Company, subject to the finalisation of a binding agreement, some 390 000 square metres of its neighbouring Savuka mining area for a consideration of R35 million. The area offered for sale is not within AngloGold Ashanti's current mine plan. Pending the signing of the sale agreement and securing of the necessary regulatory approvals, Blyvoor will mine the area under contract. Given the potential losses in jobs and community livelihoods that would follow should Blyvoor be unable to sustain its operations, AngloGold Ashanti believes that the transaction offers a "win-win" for both companies and the communities in which they operate.

Esterhuizen write in a research report that AngloGold should takeover either Gold Fields Ltd ("Gold Fields") or Harmony Gold Mining Ltd ("Harmony") and then unbundle itself into separate overseas and local vehicles. SBG Securities analyst, David Davis, says the most obvious combination would be AngloGold with Gold Fields. However, Davis says that since both sets of mines are making profits he does not see any merger happening. Esterhuizen disagrees with Davis on whether AngloGold should pursue a merger with Gold Fields or Harmony, believing that a deal with Harmony makes a little more sense than one with Gold Fields.

Dividend

No dividend has been declared for the period



Prospects

Second quarter production is expected to be around 1.09Moz. Given stronger, volatile currencies and fuel prices, AngloGold Ashanti is guiding second-quarter total cash costs at USD760/oz (R6.75/USD, Brent crude USD120/bl) and equivalent Australian dollar and Brazilian real rates. The quarter-on-quarter increase is influenced by stronger local currencies, higher fuel prices and electricity costs. The above numbers include accounting for deferred stripping charges at USD14/oz.

AngloGold will publish detailed first-quarter earnings on 11 May 2011. Given that this is the first reporting period in the company's history without the effects of its hedge book, which was eliminated on 7 October 2010, the company deemed it prudent to release this market update in advance of its earnings.



AngloGold reported that strong performances from its operations in Continental Africa and the Americas during the first quarter helped claw back much of the 20 000oz of production lost due to unprecedented rainfall at its Sunrise Dam mine in Australia.



First quarter production, therefore, remains on track with original guidance of 1.039Moz announced on 17 February 2011. Total cash costs will be around USD706/oz compared with original guidance of USD675/oz to USD700/oz, given the combination of higher-than-anticipated oil prices and rising royalties on the back of record gold prices.



Earnings attributable to equity shareholders are anticipated to be around USD241 million for the quarter, higher than the USD56 million recorded during the previous quarter. After eliminating fair value adjustments of the two convertible bonds, adjusted headline earnings are expected to be around USD203 million for the quarter.



Improved cash flow per ounce of production, following the elimination of all hedge contracts, has also made possible a further 15% reduction in net debt during the quarter from USD1.3 billion to USD1.1 billion.

AngloGold Ashanti Ltd's Sunrise Dam Gold Mine, situated 56 kilometres south of Laverton in Western Australia, has been impacted by unprecedented heavy rains over the past month. While open pit mining has now resumed, underground mining remains suspended for safety reasons, with the expectation that Sunrise Dam will achieve normal mining rates in the June Quarter.



AngloGold Ashanti is therefore expecting that first quarter guidance of 1.04Moz will be negatively impacted by approximately 20 000 ounces with a consequential impact on unit total cash costs. The full year production guidance for the Group of 4.55Mozs to 4.75Mozs remains unchanged.

AngloGold Ashanti learned today of the death of Mr Thembekile Mankayi. We wish to offer our condolences to his family and friends. The company has noted the decision of the Constitutional Court to grant Mr Mankayi leave to appeal against the decision of the Supreme Court of Appeal which itself upheld the June 2008 Johannesburg High Court decision that employees who qualify for benefits in respect of the Occupational Diseases in Mines and Works Act (ODMWA) may not, in addition, lodge civil claims against their employers in respect of their relevant conditions.



We are still studying the details of the judgment. Our initial impression is that should the Executor of Mr Mankayi`s estate wish to pursue his claim, he or she will now need to return to the High Court to continue with the litigation action. AngloGold Ashanti will defend the case on its merits. Should other individuals lodge similar claims, these too would ultimately be defended by the Company and judged on their merits.



We acknowledge that this case highlights a number of occupational health challenges faced by the mining industry including AngloGold Ashanti. These are challenges we have been working to address for some time. They include:

*Working to improve the management of dust underground so as to eliminate future incidences of occupational lung disease.

*Working through the Chamber of Mines and with the Department of Health and the NUM, on a project to improve the access of former mineworkers suffering from occupational lung disease to health care and to the benefits provided for by the Occupational Diseases in Mines and Works Act (ODMWA) and to improve the operation of the statutory compensation fund. This project also involves community economic development programmes in areas where former mineworkers reside.

*Working actively in tripartite forums on the rationalisation and reform of the statutory framework for compensation in respect of occupational lung disease, seeking to achieve this in a manner that eliminates anomalies in the application of the legislation, but does not threaten the viability of the industry and the jobs of the people employed in it.

Business Day reported that AngloGold is debating whether to split its gold mines in SA from its operations elsewhere as investors discount the value of assets because of government's mine nationalisation talk. CEO Mark Cutifani commented: " The question people are asking is, would we get a higher rating for our global gold assets. The answer is, quite possibly." About two-fifths of its production comes from SA where miners are generally rated lower by investors than their North American peers because the mines are the world's deepest and use mostly labour-intensive methods.

In the South African west coast model, gold is thought to have washed into the sea from rivers millions of years ago, and the deposits covered in sediment.

Revenue increased to USD1.5 billion (USD1.1 billion) for the three months ended 30 September 2010. Gross profit amounted to USD357 million (loss of USD1.1 billion) and operating profit was USD178 million (loss of USD1.2 billion). Overall there was a profit turnaround, with the company recording a net attributable profit of USD51 million, compared to a prior comparative period loss of USD1 billion. In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis amounted to USD15cps (loss of USD282cps).



Outlook

AngloGold's production for the full year is expected to be 4.5Moz. As flagged in previous quarters, production issues in Ghana and longer than expected shut down at Savuka have impacted 2010 production. Total cash costs are expected to be USD635/oz, assuming an average exchange rate of R7.34/USD1.00 and oil at USD80/barrel for the twelve month period. (When restated using the original foreign exchange assumption of R7.70/USD1.00, this translates to USD613/oz, within guidance).

Fourth quarter production is expected to be 1.140Moz at a total cash cost of USD640/oz assuming an exchange rate of R7.25/USD1.00 to USD675/oz assuming an exchange rate of R6.75/USD1.00, and oil at USD80/barrel. In addition to the residual impact from the accelerated hedge close outs, as in prior years, fourth quarter results will be distorted by accounting adjustments relating to the reassessment of useful asset lives, rehabilitation, tax and inventory provisions.

The special resolution will be registered with the Companies and Intellectual Property Registration Office in due course.



Withdrawal of cautionary announcement

Shareholders are referred to the cautionary announcements dated 15, 16 and 23 September 2010 and are advised that as the outcome of the general meeting is now known, caution is no longer required to be exercised by shareholders when dealing in AngloGold Ashanti securities.



Background

AngloGold Ashanti concluded a dual-tranche issue of equity and a mandatory convertible bond last month to help facilitate elimination of the 3.2 million committed ounces remaining in its hedge book. This followed a decision to conclude the process, started at the beginning of 2008, of restructuring and strengthening its balance sheet and financial profile. At that time, the company`s hedge exposure ran to almost 12Moz. The hedge position was officially declared closed on 7 October 2010, ending AngloGold Ashanti's sale of gold at discounts to market prices. The accelerated capital raising attracted significant demand from investors, resulting in the broad distribution of securities to more than 80 individual institutions in each issue.

AngloGold Ashanti has completed the elimination of its gold hedge book, providing the company and its shareholders with full exposure to the prevailing gold price. The company will now sell the gold it produces at market prices and therefore expects to enhance cash flow and profit margins as a result of removing hedge contracts with low committed gold prices.



The cost of scheduled hedge book maturities during the third quarter of 2010 was approximately USD98 million. The additional cost of closing out all future hedge contracts amounted to approximately USD2.63 billion, representing an average buy-back price of USD1 300 per ounce for this final tranche of the hedge restructure. The cost will be reflected in adjusted headline earnings for the last two quarters of 2010. This final phase of hedge restructuring has been funded with proceeds from the issue of new equity and the mandatory convertible bonds completed in September, as well as cash from internal sources and debt facilities.



AngloGold Ashanti has consistently executed a strategy to reduce its outstanding gold hedging position in recent years. A number of initiatives have been undertaken to accelerate this reduction of the hedge book from 11.3 million ounces at the beginning of 2008, to 3.22 million ounces in June 2010. In September 2010 AngloGold Ashanti successfully completed a concurrent offering of equity and mandatory convertible bonds, raising gross proceeds of approximately USD1.6 billion in order to help fund an elimination of its residual gold hedge book. This has now been achieved.

Business Day reported that, AngloGold is working on technology to release 80 million pounds of uranium that is locked up in dumps, as it pushes ahead on large gold projects. The company aims to maintain a minimum gold output of 1.75 million ounces a year over the next five years, but foresees a dip in production ahead of big projects that will add new ounces in 10-12 years. Last year it produced 1 797 million ounces. In the short term AngloGold wants to lift uranium production from 1.3 million pounds a year to 2 million pounds. It could generate 1.4 million pounds this year, accounting for nearly all of SA's uranium production. AngloGold plans to expand its South Uranium plant to handle increased volumes from its Kopanang mine, which has higher uranium grades and volumes than the great Noligwa mine, which is nearing the end of its life, Robbie Lazare, vice-president in charge of SA, said last week.

AngloGold Ashanti posted first-quarter adjusted headline earnings of USD61 million after a strong performance from its mines in Tanzania and the Americas helped offset seasonally lower production from South Africa.



Production was 1.08Moz at a total cash cost of USD619/oz in the three months to 31 March 2010, compared with production the previous quarter of 1.18Moz at USD598/oz and guidance of 1.07Moz at USD655/oz issued by the company in February. The Brasil Mineracao operations saw a cost reduction of 12% to USD369/oz, consolidating its position as the company's lowest-cost producer. Adjusted headline earnings were USD61 million, or 17 cps in the first quarter, given seasonally weak production at the South African operations following the December holiday shutdown. This compares with fourth- quarter profit of USD228 million, or 62 cps, which was boosted by a once-off foreign exchange gain.

Outlook

AngloGold Ashanti's production and total cash cost guidance for the full year 2010 are both unchanged at 4.5Moz to 4.7Moz at a total cash cost of USD590/oz to USD615/oz. This assumes an average exchange rate of R7.70/USD and an oil price of USD75/barrel. The group's press release dated 30 March 2010 flagged that second quarter production from Ghana will be 20 000 to 25 000 ounces lower, for reasons stated previously. In addition, Sunrise Dam will have a planned drop in quarterly production in the second quarter, but remains on track for the full year's target. The group is therefore guiding second quarter's production at similar levels recorded in the first quarter, i.e. 1.079Moz at a total cash cost of USD650/oz at a rand exchange rate of R7.40/USD for the quarter.

AngloGold announced on 19 February 2010, that processing operations had been suspended at its Iduapriem mine in Ghana pending the establishment of a temporary tailings storage facility at the mine. AngloGold is announcing today that it has applied for a permit from the Environmental Protection Agency of Ghana ("EPA") for the construction of this facility and expects gold production to resume at Iduapriem in April. The company is accelerating the establishment of a water treatment plant and a new tailings storage facility which it aims to commission in the third quarter of 2010 and early 2011 respectively. During the above period of suspension, the mining operations have continued at Iduapriem for most of the duration and certain plant maintenance scheduled for later this year has been brought forward and completed. The company continues to assess the rescheduling of production at the mine, with a view to recovering some of the lost production during the remainder of 2010.



At its Obuasi mine in Ghana, AngloGold has suspended the operation of gold processing pending the implementation of a revised water management strategy to reduce contaminants contained in its discharge. Details of the strategy have been submitted to the EPA. The essence of the revised plan is to utilise existing infrastructure for the containment and treatment of water on site. The consequence of this is that production from the mine will be around 20 000 to 25 000 ounces lower than anticipated for second quarter of 2010, during which time alternative mining strategies already identified will be refined and implemented to mitigate further shortfalls. With the support and guidance of the EPA, the mine intends to establish additional water holding and treatment facilities progressively over the next 18 months.



In 2009, Iduapriem and Obuasi mines produced 190 000 ounces and 381 000 ounces of gold respectively and together accounted for some 12% of AngloGold's global production. AngloGold will provide an update of its full year guidance, taking into account the stoppages at Iduapriem and the above disruption at Obuasi, on or before it releases its first quarter results on 7 May 2010.

Following discussions with the Environmental Protection Agency of Ghana (EPA) in relation to potentially adverse environmental impacts arising from the current tailings storage facility, operations at AngloGold's Iduapriem mine in Ghana have been suspended until alternative arrangements for tailings storage can be established. In conjunction with the EPA, we have identified an interim location for tailings storage and will work with the agency over the next month to make this operational.



In parallel, the mine is accelerating the development of a new tailings storage facility and a water treatment plant, which it aims to commission in the latter part of 2010 or in early 2011. Rescheduling is underway to define the production impact but it is expected that a revised plan will enable a significant portion of lost production to be recovered over the course of the year. Employees and key suppliers are being engaged to assist during the transition period. In 2009, Iduapriem produced 190 000oz of gold, some 4% of AngloGold's annual global production.

On 31 March 2009 AngloGold Ashanti guided second quarter production of 1.140Moz, with cash costs in a range of USD465/oz to USD485/oz, depending on currency assumptions. The company will report production of 1.127Moz for the second quarter, 1% below forecast, with cash costs within the guided range. The slightly lower production is due to a number of safety-related stoppages at the Vaal River mines, and the closure on 22 May of Savuka mine due to a series of seismic events which damaged the sub-shaft infrastructure, as previously disclosed. Offsetting these production shortfalls are improved performances from Obuasi in Ghana and Geita in Tanzania, together with continued strong performances from Mponeng and TauTona in South Africa and the company's South American operations. The other operations in Africa, Australia and North America performed in line with expectations. AngloGold Ashanti will release full second quarter results on 31 July 2009.

A series of seismic events occurred close to the shaft infrastructure at Savuka mine on 22 May. Of Savuka's three-shaft system, the primary and tertiary shafts have not been damaged. However, the sub-shaft barrel below 100 level has been damaged, together with shaft installations on 101 and 102 levels - which is the main infrastructure supporting Savuka's Carbon Leader Reef production. Operational staff are assessing the best way to rehabilitate the sub-shaft infrastructure and the degree to which select mining on the Ventersdorp Contact Reef at Savuka can continue while this work is undertaken. There will only be a low volume of production from the main shaft area for the remainder of the second quarter.

The company will clarify the impact of production losses at Savuka, together with additional losses due to other safety related stoppages experienced during the quarter, once the production quarter is closed. Savuka produced 14,000 ounces in the first quarter of 2009 and 66,000 ounces of gold in 2008, just over 1% of AngloGold Ashanti's production.

AngloGold Ashanti expects first-quarter production of approximately 1.1 million ounces, 2.5 percent below previous guidance of 1.13 million ounces and this is anticipated to have a proportionate impact on per unit cash costs. The shortfall in output is due primarily to the slow start-up of the company's South African mines following the traditional Christmas break, as well as stoppages undertaken by management to improve safety. AngloGold Ashanti's Geita mine also experienced a plant breakdown which contributed to lower production volumes. These issues have now been resolved and all other mines either achieved or exceeded their first-quarter targets with strong performances from Sunrise Dam, Siguiri and Obuasi, which is successfully achieving its turnaround targets. Full-year guidance remains unchanged at 4.9 million to 5.0 million ounces at a total cash cost of USD435 to USD450 an ounce, based on these previously stated assumptions: R9.75/USD, AUD0.675, BRL2.25/$, Argentinean pesos 3.65/$ and fuel at US$50 per barrel.

According to the Financial Mail, AngloGold CEO, Mark Cutifani, is very interested in diversifying into industrial metals. This would be very difficult if Anglo American plc was still one of its big shareholders. However, the company is in no hurry to embark on this strategy, despite sum bargains been around in the base metals sector. Cutifani says that for the next few years the focus will continue to be on gold. In light of this, AngloGold aims to be the world's number one gold producer, something that could take around seven years to achieve. AngloGold is currently fourth, but its share price has performed better than any of the other majors over the past six months.

AngloGold Ashanti is pleased to announce that it has agreed to sell with effect from 1 January 2010, the Tau Lekoa mine together with the adjacent Weltevreden and Goedgenoeg project areas to Simmer and Jack Mines Ltd for an aggregate consideration of:

* R600 million less an offset up to a maximum of R150 million for unhedged free cash flow generated by the Tau Lekoa mine in the period between 1 January 2009 and 31 December 2009 as well as an offset for unhedged free cashflow generated by the Tau Lekoa mine in the period between 1 January 2010 and the effective date of the transaction. Simmers shall endeavor to settle the completion consideration entirely in cash, however Simmers may issue to AngloGold Ashanti ordinary shares in Simmers up to a maximum value of R150 million with the remainder payable in cash; and

* royalty, determined at 3% of the net revenue (being gross revenue less state royalties) generated by the Tau Lekoa mine and any operations as developed at Weltevreden and Goedgenoeg. The royalty will be payable quarterly for each quarter commencing from 1 January 2010 until the total production from the sale assets upon which the royalty is paid is equal to 1.5 million ounces and provided that the average quarterly rand price of gold is equal to or exceeds R180 000/kg (in 1 January 2010 terms).

The effective date will occur on the later of 1 January 2010 or the first day in the calendar month following the fulfillment of all conditions precedent to the transaction. AngloGold Ashanti will continue to operate Tau Lekoa until the effective date with appropriate joint management arrangements with Simmers and will retain all operating cash flow generated from the Tau Lekoa mine for the year ending 31 December 2009 greater than R150 million as determined on an unhedged basis. In addition, following the effective date, Simmers will treat all ores produced from the sales assets at its own processing facilities. As a result AngloGold Ashanti will have increased processing capacity available, allowing for the processing of additional material sooner from its other Vaal River mines and surface sources, thereby further accelerating cash flow. The transaction is consistent with AngloGold Ashanti's strategy of active portfolio management to focus human and financial resources on core operations.

AngloGold announced the completion of the initial JORC-compliant resource estimate for the La Colosa deposit in Colombia. La Colosa is the second significant greenfields discovery (Gramalote being the first) in Colombia and was discovered by AngloGold's Colombian greenfields exploration team during 2006. The project is 100% owned by AngloGold.



A conceptual economic study was completed during the quarter and on this basis a JORC-compliant mineral resource has been defined. The inferred mineral Resource of 12.9Moz is defined at a gold price of USD1000/oz. Included within the pit optimisation are some 0.5Moz of potentially mineralised material that has not yet been drilled. This material was included in the pit optimisation, as it lies at the crest of the La Colosa Hill and has not yet been drilled due to logistical constraints. There is strong geological evidence that this material is mineralised, and as it has not been included in the mineral resource, it constitutes further near term upside. Drilling at La Colosa is currently suspended pending the issuance of an environmental permit, which is expected to be finalised within the next few months.

Production for 2007 declined by 3% or 158 000oz against the previous year, with Great Noligwa and TauTona showing production declines of 132 000oz and 65 000oz respectively, affected by mining redesign following safety concerns at TauTona and by lower grades at Great Noligwa, as mining moves into the lower grade SV3 area. Both Sunrise Dam in Australia and Siguiri in Guinea achieved record production levels of 600 000oz and 280 000oz (attributable), respectively, for the year. Total cash costs increased by 16% to USD357/oz, due to lower production, stronger local currencies, higher by-product losses (uranium purchases), higher royalty payments (higher gold price), increased maintenance activities and inflationary pressure. Combined with a higher spend on exploration activities year-on-year to the value of USD59m, adjusted headline earnings reduced from USD411m in 2006 to USD278m.



Dividend

A dividend of ZAR53 cents (USD7 cents) per share was declared for the six months ended 31 December 2007.



Prospects

Subject to the power stability and availability at the 90% level, the production for the 2008 year is expected to be within the range of 4.8Moz to 5.0Moz. Total cash costs are anticipated to be between USD425/oz and USD435/oz, based on the following exchange rate assumptions: R7.35/USD.

Strong participation in the gold price rally, with the price received USD69/oz higher than that of the previous quarter and only 2% lower than the average spot price, resulted in a much improved financial performance for the first quarter of 2006, lifting adjusted headline earnings 110% to USD86m.

In South Africa, production declined 9%, with TauTona and Kopanang reporting respective decreases of 18 000oz and 14 000oz, due to lower volumes mined. Total cash costs for the South African operations as a whole rose to R61 747/kg (USD313/oz) this quarter, in part as a result of Moabs commencement. Regarding the international operations, strong local currencies continued to put pressure on total cash costs at the South American operations, with both Cerro Vanguardia in Argentina and Serra Grande in Brazil reporting 8% increases, in spite of steady production. The group's revenue decreased to R4.46 billion (R4.48 billion) and gross losses dropped to R318 million (R340 million loss).

AngloGold Ashanti welcomes the end of the gold mining industry`s wage dispute and strike, achieved on 11 Aug 05 through agreement between the Chamber of Mines and the National Union of Mineworkers and Solidarity. Says CEO Bobby Godsell: `Strikes are by their nature unpleasant and costly. However it is pleasing that the strike was resolved reasonably quickly and was conducted in an orderly manner. It is an indication of how far we have come since the last wage strike in 1987, which lasted for three weeks and involved significant violence. `The settlement, involving the lowest percentage increases ever, was also an important step in establishing a norm of lower single digit increases in an environment of low inflation,` he added. Says AngloGold Ashanti South Africa region head Robbie Lazare: `With the three lost production shifts and the start up to normalised production, we have effectively lost just over a tonne of gold. Our focus now will be on improving productivity initiatives so as to offset increased costs, and working with the unions to recover some of the lost shifts.` The two-year agreement, effective 1 July 2005, can be summarised as follows:

*Wage increases of between 6% and 7%, with the highest increase for the lowest job category;

*A wage increase in the second year of CPIX plus 1%, subject to a guaranteed increase of between 5.5% and 6%, again depending on the job category;

*Increased employer contributions to the risk benefit within the retirement fund; and

*Improvements in accommodation subsidies.

AngloGold Ashanti has concluded an agreement for the disposal of its La Rescatada Project (`La Rescatada`) to Aruntani SAC (`Aruntani`), a local Peruvian corporation, for a total consideration of USD12.5m. In addition, AngloGold Ashanti has retained an option to repurchase 60% of the project should reserves in excess of 2 million ounces be identified within the next three years.



La Rescatada is located approximately 800km south-east of the city of Lima in the Department of Puno, Peru. High sulphidation epithermal style gold and silver mineralisation was first discovered by AngloGold Ashanti at La Rescatada in August 2000. Intensive drilling was carried out in the district and the company subsequently concluded that La Rescatada did not meet its criteria for further investment. Oxide resources are estimated to contain approximately 500 000 ounces of gold with upside potential. The project was put out to tender in late 2004 and following a formal adjudication process, the Aruntani bid succeeded.

AngloGold has received notification from the Director-General of Minerals and Energy that the DME has granted its applications for new order mining rights in terms of the Mineral Resources and Petroleum Development Act. This development is the culmination of a long but constructive engagement with the DME, in which the company has sought to ensure a positive beginning to the new mineral rights dispensation that South Africa has entered. In terms of its submission, three areas stand out:

*With regard to equity, in addition to recognition of its transactions with Armgold between 1998 and 2002, the company is committed to the development of an Employee Share Ownership Scheme, with a value equivalent to approximately 6% of the South African assets.

*On Employment Equity, the company has in place a plan to ensure that a 40% HDSA representation in management is achieved by 2009. Beyond this, the company intends to ensure that every level of management reflects the full cultural diversity of its South African employees.

*Each South African operation has a social plan in place, which seeks to create lasting benefits for the communities in which AngloGold Ashanti operates, while the company also has an established track record of ensuring that employees facing retrenchment are offered training for alternative employment options.

AngloGold Ashanti believes that the new mineral rights dispensation seeks to begin to remedy the economic legacy of apartheid by ensuring that economic opportunity becomes available to increasing numbers of South African citizens, while simultaneously seeking to maintain local and international economic confidence and to promote economic growth.

A senior executive team of the AngloGold management recently conducted a review of the company`s exploration activities in the DRC. The review included a visit to the DRC in early June. The focus of this review was to determine whether this activity could be conducted with integrity, that is, in compliance with the company`s values. The team held a series of meetings in the national capital Kinshasa, the capital of the Ituri district, Bunia, and at the site of AngloGold`s exploration camp in Mongbwalu. In these three places the team met with representatives of government, the state mining agency, OKIMO, the UN peace keeping force, MONUC and representatives of the Catholic Church. MONUC has now established a substantial presence in Mongbwalu. The group has been assured by MONUC that significant progress with the disarming of militia members has occurred and FNI militia have withdrawn from the town. The review has also identified a number of areas for management action:



*AngloGold has commenced a baseline survey of key issues including operational security, environmental considerations, community health, artisanal mining and social development.

*The company is also intensifying its engagement with key community and government stakeholders as well as MONUC in Kinshasa, Bunia and Mongbwalu and will strictly monitor all contact with outside organisations, maintaining a register of the nature and content of these contacts, and ensure that they are consistent with the group`s values and credible international guidelines for operating in conflict zones.

*AngloGold is discussing with its partner OKIMO, the state mining agency, how to deal with the occupation, without AngloGold`s consent, of houses within its concession.



Given the volatility of events in the DRC the group will regularly review its activities, and should it become impossible to operate safely and with integrity will withdraw from the region, as it did previously.

Human Rights Watch published a report titled `The Curse of Gold`, in which the report alleges that, through its presence in the region, AngloGold gave tacit support to militia groups and, in doing this, acted inconsistently with the companys business principles. AngloGold responded by saying that yielding to any form of extortion by an armed militia or anyone else is contrary to the companys principles and values. It is not condoned by AngloGold, under any circumstances. The mining group did say that there was a breach of this principle in this instance, in that company employees yielded to the militia group FNI`s act of extortion.



AngloGold said in an announcement on 2 June 05, `In mitigation, it should be noted that as soon as it came to our attention we publicly acknowledged it, condemned it and said it would not happen again. Secondly, in contemplating whether to operate in a conflict zone, we believe we have a moral right to do so only if, after due consideration, we can honestly conclude that, on balance, our presence will enhance the pursuit of peace and democracy. Our decision to resume operating in the DRC was based on a range of factors. AngloGold does not and will not support militia or any other groups whose actions constitute an assault on efforts to achieve peace and democracy. We have acknowledged the payment by AngloGold Ashanti Kilo to the FNI in January of an extorted sum of USD8 000.00 and further sums totalling about USD1 000.00 last year in respect of an unauthorised arrangement related to cargo delivered to the local airstrip. There are also instances of contact between FNI members and employees on site - always at the FNI`s behest, not ours. In respect of the payments, we repeat that this will not reoccur. Should we find ourselves in a situation where there is pressure on our staff again to yield to extortionate demands, we will consider that to be grounds for our withdrawal from the exploration project. We draw a distinction between support for a group such as the FNI, and some level of unavoidable contact.`
