(Official Notice)
Gold Fields received a notice by the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) of its intention to embark on a protected strike at its South Deep operation in South Africa to protest retrenchments at the mine. Under South African labour law, the union is required to give 48 hours? notice of its intention to strike. The strike is set to commence tomorrow (2 November 2018) afternoon.



About 80% of the mine?s workforce are members of the union and, should the strike proceed, it is expected to impact adversely on production during its duration. Safety of employees is paramount and, if deemed necessary, South Deep would also consider cessation of production for a limited period of time. As part of a wide-ranging restructuring announcement to stem South Deep?s significant cash losses and consolidate current operations, Gold Fields commenced a Section 189 process with the mine?s two registered trade unions, the NUM and UASA, on 14 August 2018. Under the auspices of the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA), mine management has engaged the branch leadership of the two unions since then about various matters related to the section 189 process.



Consultations have been extensive with various options explored to improve the sustainability of the mine and limit job losses. This included an offer of voluntary severance packages, which was taken up by 177 employees. Despite these efforts South Deep still has to reduce its workforce by approximately 1,100 staff members and retrenchment letters were sent to these employees on 31 October 2018. In addition, the mine will reduce the number of contractors by approximately 420 people.



The selection criteria used to determine which employees would be affected were part of the Section 189 consultations and included length of service, performance and competency criteria and attendance records. Prior to the commencement of the Section 189 process South Deep employed 3,614 full-time employees and 2,214 contractors.



The ?no work, no pay? principle will apply for the strike. "We respect the laws that allow for a peaceful, legal strike, but we are very concerned about the further impact that industrial action will have on the mine - and on our employees, with potentially more job losses," Holland said. Gold Fields will announce South Deep?s latest production performance as part of the Group?s Q3 2018 operational update to be released on 9 November 2018.

Revenue for the interim period increased to USD1.351 billion (2017: USD1.305 billion). Loss for the period attributable to owners of the parent came to USD366.6 million (2017: profit of USD51 million). In addition, headline earnings per share from continuing operations remained at USD8 cents per share (2017: USD8 cents per share).



Cash dividend

In line with the Company?s dividend policy to pay out a dividend of between 25 and 35 per cent of its profit, the Board has approved and declared an interim dividend number 87 of 20 SA cents per ordinary share (gross) in respect of the six months ended 30 June 2018. This translates to 31 per cent of normalised profit.



Company outlook for 2018

Attributable equivalent gold production for the Group for 2018 is expected to be on track with original guidance given in February, with the inclusion of Asanko. AISC is expected to be between USD990 per ounce and USD1 010 per ounce and AIC is planned to be between USD1 190 per ounce and USD1 210 per ounce, both as previously guided.



The South Deep production guidance factored into the Group production guidance is unchanged from the 7 600kg provided in April 2018 (with Q1 2018 results). However, given the potential volatility related to the proposed restructuring, there is an increased level of uncertainty with this forecast.



Capital expenditure for the Group for 2018 is forecast at USD854 million, which is higher than the guidance of USD835 million, mainly due to increased expenditure at the Damang reinvestment project and the Gruyere project.



The above is subject to safety performance which limits the impact of safety-related stoppages and the forward looking statement.

Revenue for the interim period increased to USD1.33 billion (2016: USD1.30 billion). Operating profit decreased to USD627.4 million (2016: USD638.6 million), net profit attributable to owners of the parent was down to USD53 million (2016: USD115.3 million), while headline earnings per share from continuing operations lowered to USD9 cents per share (2016: USD15 cents per share).



Cash dividend

In line with the company?s dividend policy to pay out a dividend of between 25 and 35 per cent of its earnings, the board has approved and declared an interim dividend number 86 of 40 SA cents per ordinary share (gross) in respect of the six months ended 30 June 2017.



Company outlook for six months to December 2017

The improved performance from the March to the June quarter is forecast to continue for the remainder of the year. This is primarily as a result of additional mining cuts becoming available and improved access and infrastructure capacity particularly in the higher grade corridors. The forecasted improvement is expected to be enabled by the debottlenecking of ore handling infrastructure as well as improved primary equipment availabilities and utilisation based on improved maintenance strategies. Significant focus is being placed on integrating and optimising the overall mining cycle including the constraining ancillary activities of secondary support and backfilling to improve overall productivity. There has been an improvement in compliance to mine design parameters and this is steadily translating into improved overall mining conditions, mining area availability and output. As a result of this, we envisage steadily increasing the rate of destress mining to further improve volumes and create mining stock.

Gold Fields Ltd. advises that earnings per share (EPS) for the twelve months ended 31 December 2016 (FY 2016) are expected to be between 160% and 170% (USD0.49 to USD0.52) higher than the loss per share of USD0.31 reported for the twelve months ended 31 December 2015 (FY 2015), at a range between USD0.18 and USD0.21.



Headline earnings per share (HEPS) for FY 2016 are expected to be between 730% and 780% (USD0.29 to USD0.31) higher than the headline loss per share of USD0.04 reported for FY 2015, at a range between USD0.25 and USD0.27.



In addition, normalised earnings per share for the period are expected to be between 280% and 320% (USD0.17 to USD0.19) higher than the normalised earnings per share of USD0.06 reported for FY 2015, at a range between USD0.23 and USD0.25.



The increases in EPS, HEPS and normalised earnings are primarily driven by an increase in the USD gold price (8% YoY) and lower net operating costs in local currencies as well as the impact of converting these costs at weaker exchange rates. In addition, EPS is impacted by lower non-recurring items. In FY 2016, the AUD was 1% weaker YoY and the rand was 13% weaker YoY, against the USD.



For FY 2016, attributable gold equivalent production is expected to be 2,146koz (FY 2015: 2,159koz), with all-in sustaining costs (AISC) of USD980/oz (FY 2015: USD1 007/oz) and all-in costs (AIC) of USD1 006/oz (FY 2015: USD1 026/oz). This compares to revised guidance of 2 100koz ? 2 150koz at AISC of USD1 000/oz ? USD1 010/oz and AIC of USD1 035/oz ? USD1 045/oz.



Attributable gold equivalent production for Q4 2016 is expected to be 566koz (Q3 2016: 537koz), with AISC of USD911/oz (Q3 2016: USD1 026/oz) and AIC of USD941/oz (Q3 2016: USD1 038/oz)



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

As previously announced by Gold Fields, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Gold Fields Netherlands Services B.V., has made three successive proposals jointly with Silver Standard to acquire Kirkland Lake pursuant to a plan of arrangement for consideration consisting of cash and shares of Silver Standard or a combination thereof. In response to each proposal, the Kirkland Lake board advised that it had determined that it was not reasonably expected to result in a Superior Proposal relative to Kirkland Lake?s previously announced combination with Newmarket Gold Inc. (Newmarket) (TSX: NMI), and that Kirkland Lake would not be engaging in any discussions with Gold Fields or Silver Standard or providing them with due diligence access.



In light of the lack of engagement by the board of Kirkland Lake in response to these proposals, and there being no basis to expect any further engagement from Kirkland Lake, Gold Fields and Silver Standard are left with no choice but to withdraw their latest proposal. Gold Fields remains interested in pursuing negotiations toward a board- supported transaction with Kirkland Lake in the event that Kirkland Lake?s shareholders reject the Newmarket transaction.

Gold Fields advised that earnings per share (EPS) for the six months ended 30 June 2016 (H1 2016) are expected to be 1,400% (USD0.14) higher than the USD0.00 per share reported for the six months ended 30 June 2015 (H1 2015), at USD0.14 per share. Headline earnings per share (HEPS) for H1 2016 are expected to be 1,500% (USD0.15) higher than the USD0.01 per share reported for H1 2015, at USD0.16 per share.



In addition, normalised earnings for the period are expected to be 1,200% (USD0.12) higher than the USD0.01 per share reported for H1 2015 at USD0.13 per share.



The increases in EPS, HEPS and normalised earnings are primarily driven by an increase in the USD gold price (3% YoY) and lower net operating costs in local currencies as well as the impact of converting these costs at weaker exchange rates. In H1 2016, the AUD was 5% weaker YoY and the rand was 29% weaker YoY, against the USD.



Attributable gold equivalent production for Q2 2016 is expected to be 529koz (Q1 2016: 515koz), with all-in sustaining costs (AISC) of USD1,023/oz (Q1 2016: USD961/oz) and all-in costs (AIC) of USD1,061/oz (Q1 2016: USD986/oz).



For H1 2016, attributable gold equivalent production is expected to be 1,044koz (H1 2015: 1,036koz), with AISC of USD992/oz (H1 2015: USD1,083/oz) and AIC of USD1,024/oz (H1 2015: USD1,108/oz).

old Fields Ltd (Gold Fields) (JSE, NYSE: GFI) is pleased to announce that the Full Court of the Federal Court of Australia today overturned a July 2014 Federal Court decision that the re-grant of certain tenements to Gold Fields Australia?s St Ives mine in 2004 by the State was not compliant with the correct processes in the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth).



As such, the Federal Court has confirmed that St Ives? re-granted tenements are valid for the purpose of the Native Title Act, and that whilst St Ives? rights as tenement holder and the Ngadju People?s native title rights shall coexist, St Ives? rights shall prevail should there be any inconsistencies.



Gold Fields welcomes this finding, which confirms that it has at all times complied with its legal obligations in respect of its dealings with these tenements. Gold Fields will continue to openly engage with the Ngadju People, and all other community stakeholders in relation to its operations in Australia.



It is not yet clear whether the Ngadju People will seek to appeal this decision.

Gold Fields has successfully completed a R2.3bn (USD150m) accelerated equity raising by way of a private placement to institutional investors.



The offer was significantly oversubscribed and a total number of 38 857 913 new Gold Fields shares were placed at a price of R59.50 per share which represents a discount of 6.0% to the 30-day volume weighted average traded price (VWAP), for the period ended 17 March 2016 and a 0.7% discount to the 50-day moving average.



On 19 February 2016, Gold Fields launched a tender offer to buy back up to USD200m of its USD1bn 4.875% guaranteed notes due 7 October 2020. Gold Fields accepted USD147.61m of the Notes tendered, at a purchase price of USD880 per USD1 000 in principal amount of the Notes (88% of the notional value), utilising its existing available revolving credit facilities. This translates to a yield to maturity of 8.1% per annum on the bonds accepted.



The net proceeds from the Placing will be applied to the company?s existing USD revolving credit facility that was utilised to purchase the Notes.



The net effect of these transactions, will be a reduction in the net debt to EBITDA ratio from 1.38x to 1.21x, as at 31 December 2015, which gets Gold Fields closer to achieving one of its key strategic objectives of net debt to EBITDA of 1.0x.



The company?s FY16 guidance of gold equivalent production of 2.05 to 2.10Moz at all-in costs of USD1 035-1 045/oz remains intact. The Placing was executed by Merrill Lynch International acting as global coordinator and bookrunner and Scotiabank as co-bookrunner.

Revenue for the year ended 31 December lowered to USD2.545 billion (2014: USD2.869 billion). Operating profit fell to USD1.089 billion (2014: USD1.191 billion), while a loss attributable to owners of the parent was recorded at USD242.1 million (2014: profit of USD12.8 million). Furthermore, headline per share came in at USD4cps (2014: earnings of USD4cps).



Dividend

A final dividend of ZAR21cps is payable on 14 March 2016, giving a total dividend for the year ended December 2015 of ZAR25cps.



2016 guidance and outlook

For 2016, we expect attributable equivalent gold production of between 2.05 million ounces and 2.10 million ounces, with decreases in the international operations partly offset by the growth in production at South Deep. Notable changes in 2016 include a reduction in production from the Australian region to around 905 000 ounces; the negative impact of the lower copper price on Cerro Corona's equivalent gold production (reduction to around 260 000 ounces); lower production from Damang given the review currently underway; and a 30% increase at South Deep to around 257 000 ounces.



The main contributors to lower production in Australia in 2016 are as follows:

- Mining of lower grade areas of the mine on Zones 90 and 100 at Granny Smith.

- Closure of Athena underground mine and outperformance on grade from Neptune ore in early 2015 at St Ives.

- Deeper mining at Agnew and timing to access the new high grade Cinderella ore body.

- Limited mining planned at Darlot pending further exploration success during the current year.



The 30% increase in production from South Deep is expected to be driven mainly by an increase in available working places; an increase in productivity; fleet expansion; and grade improvements.



However, Gold Fields expect unit costs to be largely unchanged from 2015, with AISC expected to be between USD1 000/oz and USD1 010/oz and AIC expected to be between USD1 035/oz and USD1 045/oz. Group capital expenditure for the year is forecast at USD602 million. These expectations assume the following exchange rates: ZAR/USD:14.14 and AUD/USD:0.73.



Move to semi-annual financial reporting

Following a review of the company's reporting requirements, Gold Fields has taken the decision to change from quarterly to semi-annual financial reporting. The company will continue to provide production and cost updates to the market on a quarterly basis.
27-Jan-2016
(Official Notice)
Gold Fields' Group attributable equivalent gold production for the 2015 financial year is expected to be 2.16Moz, which is within 1% of the original guidance (provided in February 2015) of 2.17Moz.



Unit cost are expected to be lower than the improved guidance (published in November 2015) with All-in Sustaining Costs (AISC) estimated at USD1 020/oz (guidance: USD1 035/oz) and All-in Costs (AIC) at USD1 035/oz (guidance: USD1 055/oz). The original guidance (February 2015) for AISC and AIC was USD1 055/oz and USD1 075/oz, respectively.



For Q4 2015, Group attributable equivalent gold production is expected to be 566.0koz (Q3 2015: 556.7koz), with AISC of USD940/oz (Q3 2015: USD948/oz) and AIC of USD950/oz (Q3 2015: USD961/oz).



Attributable equivalent gold production (koz) by mine expected for Q4 2015 is summarised in the table detailed in the relevant SENS note.

According to Business Day Gold Fields, the South African Miner with operations from Peru to Australia, climbed the most in 16 years as improvements to South Deep mine lowered costs. Chief executive Nick Holland indicated that the project which was acquired for USD3 billion in 2006, was on course to break even by the end of 2016.The stock climbed as much as 28.97 percent to R39.98 a share, the most since September 1999, in Johannesburg.

Revenue for the quarter ended 30 September 2015 decreased to USD635.1 million (2014: USD699.2 million). Operating profit was recorded at USD269.1 million (2014: USD284.9 million). Net profit attributable to owners of the parent dropped slightly to USD18.0 million (2014: USD19.1 million).In addition, headline earnings per share came in at USD3cps (2014: USD2cps).



Outlook

Goldfields expects full year production to be within 1 per cent to 2 per cent of previous guidance. However, costs are expected to be better than previously guided at around USD1,035 per ounce for AISC and USD1,055 per ounce for AIC. South Deep's production for the full year is expected to be between 5,900 kilograms (190,000 ounces) and 6,000 kilograms (193,000 ounces), with the last six months of 2015 being up around 50 per cent on the first six months of 2015.



The above is subject to safety performance which limits the impact of safety-related stoppages.

Revenue for the interim period decreased to USD1.3 billion (USD1.5 billion). Operating profit lowered to USD522 million (USD603 million). Loss attributable to owners came in at USD2.2 million (profit of USD19.2 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share was recorded at USD1 cents per share (USD3 cents per share).



Dividend

In line with our dividend policy to pay out a dividend of between 25% and 35% of normalised earnings, Gfields declared an interim dividend of 4 SA cents per share, which is at the upper end of the payout range.



Outlook

Gfields maintained our full year production guidance of around 2.2 million ounces, however, production at South Deep is now expected to be approximately 6,500 kilograms (previously 7,100 kilograms), principally due to a deliberate focus to fix the base for a sustainable long-term future. The lower production at South Deep is offset by better than expected performances at Tarkwa, St Ives, Granny Smith and Cerro Corona. Financial year 2015 cost guidance of AISC of USD1,055 per ounce and AIC of USD1,075 per ounce remains unchanged.



Capital expenditure for 2015 is forecast at USD660 million. It is weighted to the first half of the year, which will have a resultant impact on AIC.

Gold Fields provides production and cost guidance for the Group for the March 2015 quarter (Q1 2015). First quarter production was planned lower due to the Christmas break in South Africa and mine scheduling at the other operations. There was a concomitant increase in unit costs, despite overall costs being well contained.



Attributable gold equivalent production for the quarter is expected to be approximately 501,000 ounces (Q4 2014: 556,000 ounces) at All-in Sustaining Costs (AISC) of USD1,145/oz (Q4 2014: USD1,023/oz) and All-in Costs (AIC) of USD1,165/oz (Q4 2014: USD1,047/oz).



Previously published guidance for 2015, of attributable gold equivalent production of 2.2 million ounces at AISC of USD1,055/oz and AIC of USD1,075/oz, remains intact. Gold Fields? full results for the quarter ended 31 March 2015 will be published on Thursday, 7 May 2015.

(Official Notice)
Gold Fields announced that it has reached a three-year wage and other conditions of employment agreement with its registered trade unions at its South Deep mine in South Africa.



The agreement, which was signed with the National Union of Mineworkers and UASA, will result in average annual wage increases of 10% over the three-year period of the deal. The first increase will take effect on 1 April 2015.



The negotiations took place at a company-level in recognition of South Deep?s significantly different operating model and labour profile to that of the other gold mining companies in South Africa. South Deep is the only fully mechanised gold mining operation in South Africa and it employs a small, skilled complement of approximately 3,500 employees.



As such, Gold Fields has had to give due consideration to the scarcity of mechanised mining skills in South Africa and has taken a holistic approach in its negotiations with labour.

Capital expenditure for 2015 is forecast at USD660 million. It is weighted to the first half of the year, which will have a resultant impact on AIC. During the March 2015 quarter, capital expenditure at Tarkwa is expected to increase by approximately USD30 million as compared with the December 2014 quarter due to new fleet delivery. As a result, there will be a commensurate increase in AIC for the quarter, but this is factored into the full year guidance. At Cerro Corona, AIC for 2015 is planned to increase to USD800 per ounce, mainly due to a 45 per cent increase in capital expenditure, largely related to additional raises to the tailings storage facility.



Notwithstanding continuous inflation in labour and power costs, which make up approximately 60 per cent of the Group's costs, the 2015 guidance for AISC at USD1 055 per ounce and AIC at USD1 075 per ounce is forecast to be lower than that achieved in 2014.

Attributable gold equivalent production for Q4 2014 is expected to be approximately 556,000 ounces (3Q 2014: 559 000 ounces) at AISC of USD1 030/oz (3Q 2014: USD1 074/oz) and AIC of USD1 055/oz (3Q 2014: USD1 096/oz).

Gold Fields advised the market on 27 January 2014, that Gold Fields' subsidiary, St Ives Gold Mining Company Pty Ltd. ("St Ives"), which owns the St Ives Gold Mine in Western Australia, has been joined as a respondent, alongside the State of Western Australia (the "State") and other resources companies, in proceedings commenced in the Federal Court of Australia by the Ngadju People, seeking determination of its claim for native title over a parcel of land in the Goldfields region of Western Australia.



Gold Fields further advised the market on 7 July 2014 that the Federal Court had handed down a decision, which accepted the submissions of the Ngadju People that the re-grant of certain of St Ives? tenements in 2004 by the State was not compliant with the correct processes in the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), and as such, the re-granted tenements are invalid to the extent the exercise of rights under the tenements is inconsistent with the Ngadju People?s native title rights.



On 21 November 2014, the Federal Court made final orders in respect of this matter, which determined the nature and extent of the native title rights held by the Ngadju People. These Orders were consistent with, and gave effect to, the earlier decisions of the Federal Court. St Ives, together with another major resources company and the State of Western Australia, has now lodged an appeal against aspects of the Federal Court?s decision to the Full Court of the Federal Court of Australia (3 Judges), and anticipates that the matter will be heard during Quarter 3/4 2015.



Gold Fields remains strongly of the view that it has at all times complied with its obligations under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) in respect of its dealings with these tenements. Accordingly, St Ives will vigorously pursue its appeal to the Full Federal Court, and remains confident of a favourable outcome through this process. Gold Fields will continue to keep the market informed of any material developments in the matter.

Business Day reports that Gold Fields will test two alternative mining methods at South Deep mine to determine whether there is a more economic and quicker way to extract gold ore deposits. CEO Nick Holland says the there is nothing wrong with the current method, allowing mining at 3km deep, they are just looking for an easier method. Mr Holland said that " We want international best standards on this mine, to set it up as a 70-year mine.".

Gold Fields Ltd has taken note of the misleading and factually inaccurate Business Day article in this morning's edition headlined South Deep woes grow with R12bn Kebble suit. This claim relates to alleged activities during the period from 2002 -2005 and was instituted by Randgold and Exploration Company on 21 August 2008. It has been reported by Gold Fields in its Annual Reports, Integrated Reviews and Quarterly Financial Results statements since then. This claim is historic and relates to a period of time prior to Gold Fields purchasing the mine. The length of time taken by Randgold and Exploration Company to prosecute this claim supports both Gold Fields' and their attorneys Werksmans considered view that the claim is completely without merit.

Outlook

The group reaffirms the guidance provided on 13 February 2014, despite variations between the different operations. Attributable equivalent gold production for the group for the year ending December 2014 is forecast at around 2.2 million gold ounces. While South Deep's production will be lower than previously estimated, as discussed earlier, the shortfall is expected to be offset by improved performances from Granny Smith, Tarkwa and Cerro Corona.

Gold Fields hereby advises that the South Deep Project in South Africa is today again operational after the Section 54 order, issued by the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) on 27 May 2014, has been lifted.

The Section 54 order was lifted after the completion of a report back to the DMR, in terms of Section 11(5) of the Mines Health and Safety Act, on Friday evening, 30 May 2014, subject to the implementation of a number of specific remedial actions and instructions. Operations resumed in the Twin Shaft area with the commencement of the evening shift on Sunday evening and in the South Shaft area with the start of day shift this morning.



Following the lifting of the Section 54 order and the resumption of operations, the focus at South Deep for the next three to four months will be on the satisfactory completion of the secondary support backlog announced last week, with a view to returning the mine to normal production as soon as possible.

Gold Fields announced that it has completed the acquisition of the Granny Smith, Lawlers and Darlot gold mines (collectively the Yilgarn South Assets) in Western Australia, from Barrick Gold Corporation (Barrick). Gold Fields acquired the assets for a total net consideration of USD270 million after adjustments for working capital, mine capital and employee entitlements.



In accordance with the sale and purchase agreement, Gold Fields elected to satisfy half of the consideration by delivering 28.7 million of its common shares (which was based on the 5-day VWAP for the ADR's trading on the NYSE prior to closing). The balance of USD135 million (less a USD30 million deposit paid on signing of the agreement) was paid from cash resources held by Gold Fields in Australia.



Based on reported production for the first half of 2013, these assets are expected to add approximately 400 000 ounces of production to the Gold Fields portfolio, at costs lower than the current group average. This transaction also significantly advances Gold Fields' strategic objective of achieving a more balanced and globally diversified portfolio, with Australia now accounting for approximately 42% of Gold Fields' production, Ghana approximately 33%, Peru approximately 13% and South Africa approximately 12%.

The Board of Directors of Gold Fields reported that it has concluded its examination of the Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) transaction related to Gold Fields' South Deep operations.



Following extensive deliberations and careful consideration of the matter, which included a comprehensive independent investigation and the receipt of advice from external legal counsel, the Board continues to believe that the BEE transaction is one of lasting benefit to the Company and its BEE stakeholders. However, the Board's examination has highlighted that the implementation of the transaction did not consistently meet the high standards set by Gold Fields.



In particular, the Board has identified areas that require further attention where internal policies and procedures can be strengthened. These include policies and procedures designed to increase transparency and improve the timeliness of internal communications between management and the Board. The Board has communicated its concerns to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and, in recognition of the concerns which have been generated around the BEE transaction relating to South Deep, CEO Nick Holland has offered to waive his bonus in respect of the 2013 financial year end.



The Board continues to have full confidence in Nick and is determined to work with him and the other members of Gold Fields management to design and implement any necessary changes and to ensure that any policies and procedures result in improved oversight and are rigorously followed by Gold Fields management and other employees, as well as by any agents or third parties working on behalf of Gold Fields. The Board is pleased that this matter has now been concluded and that the Company can move forward in operating its business for the benefit of all stakeholders.

(Official Notice)
Gold Fields Ltd regrets to report that employees at its Tarkwa and Damang mines in Ghana, in which it has a 90% interest, have today, at approximately 11.00am (Ghana time), embarked on illegal industrial action which has led to production at both mines being stopped. This follows after the Ghana Mineworkers Union (GMU) and its affiliates, the Professional Managerial Staff Union and the Branch Union, yesterday presented management at both mines with a number of demands, and threatened industrial action should the company not respond favourably to the demands within 24 hours.



The demands relate to a dispute in the determination of profit share payments to employees; the unconditional reinstatement of an employee who was dismissed following an internal disciplinary procedure; dissatisfaction with certain management structures; the removal of certain members of senior management; concerns about catering delivery models; and allegations of discrimination between expatriate and Ghanaian employees. Gold Fields is analysing and investigating the demands as a matter of urgency. The company also appeals to all employees to maintain law and order while this process is underway as the safety and security of all employees is of primary importance. The company holds the view that the industrial action is illegal and unprotected. This could expose participating workers to the no-work, no-pay rule as well as possible dismissal.

Gold Fields announced that attributable Group production for the December 2012 quarter (Q4 2012) is expected to be 753 000 gold equivalent ounces compared to 811 000 ounces in the September quarter (Q3 2012) and 883 000 ounces in the corresponding 2011 quarter (Q4 2011). The international regions had an excellent quarter contributing 471 000 (Q3 2012 - 424 000 and Q4 2011 - 449 000) attributable gold equivalent ounces with all of the international operations achieving an improved performance quarter on quarter. In particular, the Tarkwa Gold mine recorded a strong improvement from the prior quarter with production of 187 800 ounces of gold (Q3 2012 - 169 400 ounces).



The South Africa Region, as expected, contributed lower production of approximately 282 000 ounces compared to 386 000 ounces in Q3 2012. The lower production was largely the result of approximately 110 000 ounces lost during the quarter (Q3 2012 - 35 000 ounces) due to the on-going impact of the prolonged and unprotected strikes at KDC and Beatrix, as referred to in the Q3 results published on 28 November 2012. In total 145 000 ounces are estimated to have been lost due to the strikes. Unit costs in the South Africa Region were negatively impacted by the lower production.



This quarter is the last time that Gold Fields will be reporting on the KDC and Beatrix Gold Mines. These mines are part of GFIMSA, which has been renamed Sibanye Gold and will be listed separately on 11 February 2013. Gold Fields will release full results for Q4 2012 on Thursday14 February 2013.

Revenue increased to R11.4 billion (September 2011: R11.1 billion). Operating profit decreased to R5.1 billion (September 2011: R5.7 billion). Net operating profit fell to R3.5 billion (September 2011: R4.3 billion). Net attributable profit decreased to R1.4 billion (September 2011: R2.1 billion). In addition, headline earnings per share was down to 165c (September 2011: 284cps).



Outlook

Production in the September quarter was negatively impacted by the following:

*unlawful strike action at KDC and Beatrix which resulted in a loss of 35,000 ounces;

*the fire at KDC which reduced production by approximately 30,000 ounces; and

*the temporary suspension of the heap leach facilities at Tarkwa which resulted in a loss of 15,000 ounces.



As a result of the factors described above, and further lost production at KDC and Beatrix due to the prolonged illegal strike which was finally resolved on the 6 November, attributable gold production for the year ending December 2012 is expected to be no more than 3.3 million equivalent ounces.



For the year ending December 2012, total cash cost is estimated to be approximately 4 per cent higher at USD895 per ounce (R236,000 per kilogram) and NCE, excluding capitalised growth projects, is estimated to be approximately 5 per cent higher at USD1,370 per ounce (R360,000 per kilogram) when compared with the guidance provided in February. The capital projects group is anticipating spending approximately USD20 per ounce on realisation costs of projects, including drilling, feasibility studies and early-work capital expenditure on our advanced projects. This is well below the original estimate of between USD50 per ounce and USD70 per ounce due to the timing of expenditure and deferrals to ensure project optimisation. These estimates are based on an average exchange rate of R/USD8.80 and R/AUD9.10 for the remainder of the year. Unit costs vary quarter on quarter depending upon the timing of capital expenditure, seasonal electricity tariffs and production variations due to statutory holidays.

Gold Fields and Compa?ia de Minas Buenaventura S.A.A. (Buenaventura) today, 14 November 2012, announced an update on the Chucapaca exploration project in the southern Peruvian region of Moquegua. The project is a joint venture by Gold Fields (51%) and Buenaventura (49%) and operated by Gold Fields.



The partners have studied the viability of a large open-pit operation capable of sustaining a 30 000 tonnes per day throughput. A first draft of the feasibility study has been completed and as a result of relatively high capital and operating costs this option would not have delivered acceptable project returns.



Consequently, further study work will have to be performed by the joint venture focusing on value engineering the project to achieve the expected returns. Future work will mainly include the following:

*Analysing different options for mine development, including an underground or a combined open-pit underground operation, and alternative throughput levels;

*Re-establishing exploration to add resource flexibility, once the required permits are granted; and,

*Optimising capital and project operating costs.



The partners reiterate their commitment to unlocking the potential of the Chucapaca project, which will need the support of all stakeholders, particularly the neighbouring communities. Gold Fields has built a close relationship with them and expects to continue working together through this phase of the project.

It is too early to say if the strike is over but we continue to monitor the situation and will make an announcement in due course.



After considerable discussion and thought, and with the full support of the Board of Directors, Gold Fields has this morning issued a final ultimatum to the employees still on strike at KDC West and Beatrix, to present themselves for work by no later than 14h00, Thursday, 18 October, 2012, or face immediate dismissal.

The purpose of the call is for Nick Holland, CEO of Gold Fields, to provide an update on the strike situation in South Africa.
12-Oct-2012
(Official Notice)
Gold Fields announced that attributable group production for the September 2012 quarter (Q3 2012) is expected to be 810 000 gold equivalent ounces compared to 862 000 ounces in the June quarter (Q2 2012) and 900 000 ounces in the corresponding quarter one year ago (Q3 2011). The international regions had a solid quarter contributing 424 000 (Q2 2012 - 425 000) attributable gold equivalent ounces, despite the two-week closure of the heap leach facilities at the Tarkwa Gold Mine in Ghana. Noteworthy has been the recovery at the Agnew Gold Mine in Australia, which contributed 48 000 (Q2 2012 - 37 000) ounces of gold.



The 386 000 (Q2 2012 - 437 000) ounces contribution by the South Africa Region was negatively impacted by a loss of approximately 30 000 ounces as a result of the fire at the YaRona Shaft of the KDC Gold Mine during the quarter, and a further approximately 35,000 ounces as a result of the unprotected strike action at KDC and the Beatrix Gold Mine during the quarter. Unit costs will be negatively impacted by the lower production.



The on-going unlawful strike action in South Africa is of concern and will, even if resolved in the near term, increase the likelihood of major restructuring in the South African gold mining industry, including at Gold Fields. Gold Fields will release full results for Q3 2012 on Monday, 26 November 2012.
10-Oct-2012
(Official Notice)
Gold Fields Ltd announces that its Q3 2012 results will be released on Monday, 26 November 2012, instead of Thursday, 22 November 2012, as originally scheduled. The change of date became necessary as 22 November 2012 is Thanksgiving in the USA.

(Official Notice)
Gold Fields regrets to confirm that, notwithstanding press reports to the contrary, the unlawful and unprotected strike at the West Section of the KDC Gold Mine (KDC West, formerly Driefontein) on the West Rand in South Africa continues. The strike started on 9 September 2012. In addition the employees at the Beatrix Mine in the Free State have also commenced with an unlawful and unprotected strike. The strike started at the West Section of Beatrix (formerly Oryx Mine) on Friday, 21 September 2012, and spread to the rest of the mine on Monday, 24 September 2012.



The large majority of the 15 000 employees at KDC West and 9 000 employees at Beatrix are participating in the unlawful strikes and production has been halted at both operations. The company has received urgent interdicts for KDC West as well as Beatrix West, and is applying for an interdict for the remainder of the Beatrix mine. The company is evaluating all options to deal with the unlawful strikes.
10-Sep-2012
(Official Notice)
Gold Fields announced that employees of the West Section of the KDC Gold Mine (KDC West, formerly Driefontein) on the West Rand in South Africa have been engaging in an unlawful and unprotected strike since the start of the night shift on Sunday, 9 September 2012. The strike continued into the morning shift. Approximately 15 000 employees are participating in the strike and all production at KDC West has been suspended as a result.



The senior leadership of Gold Fields' South Africa Region and KDC are on the mine engaging with the striking employees, the various Unions and other structures, with a view to finding a speedy and peaceful resolution to the unlawful strike. The company will apply for an urgent interdict to bring the unlawful and unprotected strike to an end.
05-Sep-2012
(Official Notice)
Gold Fields Ltd is pleased to announce that the unlawful strike by 12 000 employees at the KDC East mine on the West Rand in South Africa has been resolved and that striking employees have agreed to return to work with the commencement of the night shift tonight.



The strike was resolved after the national leadership of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) met with NUM members on the mine to resolve the differences between them and office bearers of the local NUM branch. The strike commenced on Wednesday, 29 August 2012, when the night shift did not turn out for work.
03-Sep-2012
(Official Notice)
Gold Fields Ltd regrets to announce that employees of the East Section of the KDC Gold Mine (KDC East) on the West Rand in South Africa continue to engage in an unlawful and unprotected strike. Approximately 12,000 employees are participating in the strike which started with the night shift on August 29. To date three night shifts as well as two day shifts have been lost.



It appears that the strike is the result of an internal dispute between the local branch leadership of the National Union of Mineworkers and certain employee groupings within the NUM membership, who are demanding the resignation and replacement of local NUM branch office bearers. The senior leadership of Gold Fields? South Africa Region as well as the KDC East mine continue to engage with stakeholders, including local, regional and national structures of the NUM, with a view to maintaining the peace and finding an urgent solution to the problem.



Nick Holland, CEO of Gold Fields, called on all stakeholders to place the safety and security of employees ahead of any partisan interests and to engage in good faith with a view to finding a peaceful solution. Gold Fields has been granted an urgent interdict to bring the unlawful and unprotected strike to an end. There have been inaccurate reports that the ongoing strike is as a consequence of the unilateral implementation by the company of a funeral policy scheme. This is completely devoid of truth.

Gold Fields confirmed that the payment date of interim dividend number 77 of 160 cents per ordinary share (gross) in respect of the six months ended 30 June 2012, is 17 September 2012 and not 5 September 2012 as disclosed in the highlights section.

(C)
Revenue for the interim period jumped to R22.6 billion (2011: R18.6 billion). Operating profit rose to R10.8 billion (2011: R8.5 billion), while profit attributable to owners of the parent increased to R3.7 billion (2011: R2.4 billion). Furthermore, headline earnings per share was higher at 520cps (2011: 329cps).



Dividend

The board has approved and declared an interim dividend number 77 of 160cps in respect of the six months ended 30 June 2012.



Outlook

Production in the September quarter has been negatively impacted by the following:

* the fire at KDC which reduced production by approximately 50 000 ounces;

* the temporary suspension of the heap leach facilities at Tarkwa which resulted in a loss of 15 000 ounces;

* internal and external safety stoppages at Beatrix resulted in a loss of some 20 000 ounces; and

* at South Deep approximately 15 000 ounces have been lost to date, which appears to be the result of a go-slow after issuing of the Section 189 (3) notice.



As a result of the factors described above, attributable gold production for the year ending December 2012 is expected to be no more than 3.4 million equivalent ounces and could reduce further if no agreement is reached at South Deep. For the year ending December 2012, total cash cost is estimated to be approximately 2% higher at USD880 per ounce (R230 000 per kilogram) and NCE, excluding capitalised growth projects, is estimated to be approximately 3 per cent higher at USD1 340 per ounce (R348 000 per kilogram) when compared with the guidance provided in February. The capital projects group is anticipating spending between USD20 per ounce and USD25 per ounce on realisation costs of projects, including drilling, feasibility studies and early-work capital expenditure on our advanced projects. This is well below the original estimate of between USD50 per ounce and USD70 per ounce due to the timing of expenditure and deferrals to ensure project optimisation. These estimates are based on an average exchange rate of R/USD8.20 and R/AUD8.55 for the remainder of the year. Unit costs vary quarter on quarter depending upon the timing of capital expenditure, seasonal electricity tariffs and production variations due to statutory holidays.

(Official Notice)
Further to the statement on 26 July 2012, Gold Fields announced that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of Ghana on 9 August 2012 lifted the temporary suspension on Tarkwa Gold Mine's (Tarkwa) heap leach facilities. Tarkwa reopened both the North and South Heap Leach facilities on the evening of 9 August 2012 after they were closed on 16 July 2012 to comply with an EPA directive that water discharges should be passed through a water treatment plant to reduce conductivity levels (a measure of the amount of dissolved salts in discharged water). Although Gold Fields believes that Tarkwa was complying with the prescribed conductivity levels in its water discharges, it has nonetheless commissioned the construction of two water treatment plants at the heap leach facilities. This is in pursuit of environmental best practice and in compliance with the directive.



The plants are expected to be operational before the end of 2012. In the meantime, as agreed with the Ghana Ministry of Environment, Science - Technology and the EPA, Tarkwa will continue to dilute and discharge excess water in a controlled manner while the plants are being built. Tarkwa will also submit monthly progress reports on the construction of the plants to the EPA. The estimated impact on gold production as a result of the temporary closure is around 15 000 ounces, which is less than 10% of the mine's quarterly production. Tarkwa's Carbon-in-Leach plant, which produces about 75% of the gold at the mine, was not affected.

26-Jul-2012
(Official Notice)
Gold Fields has received a directive from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of Ghana to stop discharging water from its Heap Leach facilities at the Tarkwa Gold Mine (Tarkwa) in Ghana. To comply with this directive, the operation of all Heap Leach facilities at Tarkwa has been suspended since 16 July 2012. Despite this, there has been no material impact on production to date. The EPA directive further requires that all water discharges from the mine's Heap Leach facilities should be treated through a water treatment plant to reduce conductivity levels. Conductivity is a measure of the amount of dissolved salts in discharged water and is classified internationally as a non-toxic pollutant.



Gold Fields believes that Tarkwa was complying with the prescribed conductivity levels in its water discharges, but is nonetheless conducting further investigations to validate this. However, in pursuit of environmental best practice and world class environmental stewardship, and to comply with the directive, Gold Fields has commissioned the construction of two water treatment plants at Tarkwa's North and South Heap Leach facilities. The plants are expected to be operational before the end of 2012.



In the interim, Tarkwa is engaging with the EPA with a view to reopen and operate the Heap Leach facilities while the water treatment plants are being built. Gold Fields is hopeful that a mutually acceptable solution can be found in the near term. The Carbon-in-Leach plant at Tarkwa, which produces about 75% of the gold at this mine, has not been affected by the closure of the heap leach facilities and continues to operate normally and without interruptions.

(Official Notice)
Gold Fields announced that attributable group production for the June 2012 quarter (Q2 2012) is expected to be 862 000 gold equivalent ounces, which is similar to the production for the corresponding quarter a year ago (Q2 2011: 872 000) and 4% higher than the March 2012 quarter (Q1 2012: 827 000). Total cash costs and notional cash expenditure (NCE) for the quarter are expected to be approximately USD855/oz (R222 000/kg) and USD1 310/oz (R340 000/kg) respectively. This is in line with the annual guidance provided in February of USD860/oz (R220 000/kg) for cash cost and USD1 300/oz (R335 000/kg) for operational NCE and anticipated capital project expenditure of between USD40 per ounce and USD70 per ounce.

Outlook

Attributable gold production for the year ending December 2012 is expected to be approximately 3.5 million equivalent ounces. For the year ending December 2012, total cash cost and operational NCE is estimated to be similar to the guidance provided in February at USD860 per ounce (R220 000 per kilogram) and at USD1 300 per ounce (R335 000 per kilogram) respectively. The capital projects group is anticipating spending between USD40 per ounce and USD70 per ounce on realisation costs of projects, including drilling, feasibility studies and early-work capital expenditure on our advanced projects. These projects will assist in delivering our 5 million ounces in production or in development by 2015. These estimates are based on an average exchange rate of ZAR1.00/USD8.00 and USD1.00/AUD1.00 for the remainder of the year. Estimates by quarter are expected to vary depending upon the timing of capital expenditure, seasonal electricity tariffs and production variations due to statutory holidays.

Business Day highlighted that Gold Fields is seeing increased interest in its Biox technology that frees gold locked up in its sulphide-ore bodies, and it is testing the bacterial application on copper and gold porphyries as it grows the business. Biox can be used on copper and nickel sulphide deposits, but there are no such operations in production and it is a business avenue Gold Fields is exploring.

Outlook

The production guidance for the year ending December 2011 remains unchanged despite the recent wage-related industrial action and higher than expected safety-related stoppages which disrupted the South African operations. Equivalent gold production is estimated at 3.5 million attributable ounces, which is in the range previously provided.



Total cash cost is estimated at USD810 per ounce (R187 000 per kilogram) and the NCE USD1 200 per ounce (R277 000 per kilogram) for financial 2011. Cash cost is slightly higher than the previous estimate due to an increase in royalties driven by the higher gold price. NCE per ounce is in line with previous guidance. This estimate is based on an average exchange rate of R/USD7.18 and USD/AUD1.04 for the year.

Gold Fields has made the second down-payment of USD66 million in terms of the option agreements to acquire a 60% interest in the undeveloped gold-copper Far Southeast (FSE) deposit in the Philippines. The option agreements were entered into with Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company (Lepanto), a company listed in the Philippines, and Liberty Express Assets, a private holding company. The non-refundable down-payment of USD66 million to Liberty is the second in a series of three payments. The first payment of USD54 million, comprising USD10 million in option fees to Lepanto and USD44 million as a non-refundable down-payment to Liberty, was paid with the signing of the option agreement in September 2010. Should Gold Fields decide to proceed with the acquisition of the 60% interest in FSE, the final payment of USD220 million is expected to be paid during the first half of 2012. The total pre-agreed acquisition price for a 60% interest in FSE, inclusive of all of the above payments, is USD340 million.



Following the signing of the option agreements Gold Fields commenced with an extensive drilling programme and currently has eight underground drill rigs turning. Initial results support the existence and extent of the known core of mineralisation as well as further extensions both laterally and at depth beyond this core. The company is continuing with its underground drilling programme and has also commenced with surface geotechnical drilling during this quarter.



FSE is located in the northern part of Luzon, the largest island in the Philippines. The project is situated in an existing mining camp in close proximity to two other mines historically operated by Lepanto, one of which is currently in production. FSE has ready access to established infrastructure, including roads, tailings facilities, power and water. The existing workforce on the doorstep of FSE is part of a community established around mining over the past 70 years.

Revenue for the interim period June 2011 increased to R18.6 billion (June 2010: R16.1 billion), while operating profit surged to R8.5 billion (June 2010: R6.3 billion). Net attributable profit rose to R2.4 billion (June 2010: R1.2 billion). In addition, headline earnings per share jumped to 329cps (June 2010: 189cps).



Dividend

In line with the company's policy to pay out 50 per cent of its earnings attributable to owners of the parent adjusted for impairments and after taking account of investment opportunities, an interim dividend of 100cps has been declared for the 6 months period ending 30 June 2011.



Outlook

The production guidance provided on 18 February 2011 for the year ending December 2011 remains unchanged. Equivalent gold production is estimated at between 3.5 million and 3.7 million attributable ounces. Total cash cost is estimated at USD790 per ounce (R178,000 per kilogram) compared with USD760 per ounce (R175,000 per kilogram) provided in February. This is mainly due to an increase in fuel costs at the West Africa region, higher power costs at the South Africa and West Africa regions, higher wage costs than originally anticipated, an increase in the workers' participation of profits at Cerro Corona and increased royalties at all our operations due to the higher gold price.



The NCE is estimated at USD1,190 per ounce (R268,000 per kilogram) compared with USD1,050 per ounce (R240,000 per kilogram) due to the increase in costs above together with significant investment in our growth projects, such as Chucapaca, APP and the feasibility study at Greater Damang, given the rate at which these projects are progressing. These growth projects, previously expensed, have reached a point where they are now being capitalised. These estimates are based on exchange rates of R/USD7.00 and USD/AUD1.03 for the year as a whole which assumes R/USD7.14 for the remaining six months of the year.

Gold Fields announced that attributable group production for the March quarter (Q1 2011) is expected to be approximately 830 000oz, which is 5% higher than for the corresponding quarter a year ago (793 000oz). As expected production is lower than that achieved in the previous quarter (900 000 ounces), almost entirely due to the customary Christmas break in South Africa, when all mines close for two weeks. The guidance of between 3.5 and 3.7 million ounces for the full year 2011, provided on 18 February 2011, takes account of the seasonal decline in production in South Africa which typically affects the March quarter. The higher year-on-year quarterly production is due to improvements at both the South African and international operations. Total cash costs and notional cash expenditure (NCE) are expected to be approximately USD750/oz and USD1 090/oz respectively, and the NCE margin for the group is expected to be approximately 21%. This guidance is based on exchange rates of ZAR/USD6.98 and AUD/USD0.99 for Q1 2011. The full results for Q1 2011 will be published on Thursday, 19 May 2011.

The offer price of S/. 4.20 per share is a premium of 32% over the current spot price of S/. 3.19 per common share and a 36% premium over the current spot price of S/. 3.08 per investment share. The offer price represents a 30% and a 34% premium over the six months average traded price of the common shares and investment shares respectively. La Cima's share structure is made up of 1 257 million common shares with full voting rights and 176 million non-voting investment shares. Gold Fields Corona`s offer is for 8% of the common shares it does not already own and for 100% of the investment shares.

According to Business Day, Gold Fields is confident that it has the ability and financial muscle to add 1.5 million ounces to its production profile but it must halt the decline in output at its mines in SA. The key to reaching the target of 5 million ounces in production and development by 2015 is securing a stable production base in SA, which makes up the bulk of its current 3.5 million ounces of annual output. The South African mines contributed 485 000oz of the group's total 908 000oz output in the December quarter. Gold production has fallen over the past five years. "Key to making sure we get additional ounces into the portfolio and not just replacement ounces, is to make sure the existing portfolio is solid," CEO Nick Holland said at a results presentation on Friday. "If we continue on a decline similar to what we've seen over the past five years, at some point we're going to lose critical mass at those operations. Keeping big shaft systems going, all of the energy requirements, that would be a major issue. It is fundamental to the survival of those operations that we at least stabilise production," he said.

Gold Fields had short-term debt of R5.2 billion and long term debt of R3.3 billion at the end of its financial year in June. It had cash of R3.8 billion and credit facilities of more than USD1 billion it can still access. Moody's assigned Gold Fields an investment-grade rating on September 17 on an expectation of the company's continued "health operating margins and a conservative financial profile". This follows Standard - Poor's maintaining an investment grade rating on Gold Fields. "As part of the process we are meeting fixed-income investors in both the US and the UK from September 23. A bond transaction may follow, subject to market conditions. At this stage, we have made no decisions around structure, size or timing of any potential bond issue; however one of our balance sheet priorities is to repay and/or refinance our existing debt" said Sven Lunsche, Gold Fields' corporate affairs manager.

Gold Fields announced that it has entered into option agreements with Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company (Lepanto), a company listed in the Philippines, and Liberty Express Assets (Liberty), a private holding company, to acquire a 60% interest in the undeveloped gold-copper Far Southeast (FSE) deposit in the Philippines. The agreements provide Gold Fields with an 18-month option on FSE, during which time Gold Fields will conduct a major drilling programme as part of a feasibility study on FSE. Gold Fields is required to pay (i) USD10 million in option fees to Lepanto; and (ii) USD44 million as a non-refundable down-payment to Liberty upon signing of the option agreements.



Should Gold Fields, after a 12-month period, decide to proceed with the acquisition of the 60% interest in FSE, a further non-refundable down-payment of USD66 million will be payable to Liberty, with the final payment of USD220 million payable at the expiration of the option period. The total pre-agreed acquisition price for a 60% interest in FSE, inclusive of all of the above payments, is USD340 million. FSE is located within an existing mining camp and is in close proximity to two other mines historically operated by Lepanto, one of which is currently in production. FSE has ready access to established infrastructure, including roads, tailings facilities, power and water. The existing workforce on the doorstep of FSE is part of a supportive community established around mining over the past 70 years.



While there has not been sufficient work completed to declare a mineral resource for FSE, drilling undertaken over a number of years indicates the presence of a large, concealed gold-copper mineralised porphyry system. More than 80 diamond drill holes totalling more than 35,000 metres have intersected a mineralised zone with approximate dimensions of 900 metres east-west by 900 metres north- south by 900 metres vertical. Within this zone Gold Fields considers that mineralisation is continuous. While grades are variable, the following historic drill intersections are considered typical of the mineralized zone: 691m at 2.5g/t Au, 0.9% Cu; 906.8m at 1.5g/t Au, 0.5% Cu; 613.1m at 0.8g/t Au, 0.8% Cu; 733.9m at 0.7g/t Au, 0.4% Cu; and 517.4m at 0.6g/t Au, 0.4% Cu.

Gold Fields will derive the CERs from the capture of methane gas at its Beatrix Gold Mine in South Africa's Free State province. The company will sell 1,700,000 CERs to European energy trading company Mercuria Energy Trading SA under forward contracts which will run until 2016. The transaction was brokered by TFS Green, the carbon credits broker and environmental business of the worldwide Tradition Group. CERs are traded globally and frequently bought by industrial companies as part of their efforts to alleviate their own carbon emission obligations.



At current CER values and exchange rates, the CER contract is worth about R200 million. Gold Fields will use the funds to finance a number of projects linked to the methane capture. The first phase, set for completion before the end of this year, comprises the installation of a methane extraction system underground and flares above surface at a cost of about R42 million. For the second phase Gold Fields is looking at ways of using the gas to generate electricity, thereby converting a harmful greenhouse gas into a valuable resource. Construction of a power generation plant, with the potential to generate about 5MW of electricity, is scheduled to start next year.



So far CERs-linked projects in Africa comprise less than 2% of the total number of projects registered by the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) executive board, the global body tasked with administering CERs trading. Gold Fields` Beatrix project is one of around 15 South African projects that have to date received Designated National Authority verification from South Africa's Department of Mineral Resources. Methane emanates from underground geological features such as faults, fissures and dykes and escapes during the normal course of mining operations. If released into the atmosphere it is a potent greenhouse gas. At Beatrix the methane gas will be captured at source underground and then conveyed via a network of pipes to the surface, where the methane will be flared. Installation of the underground pipes is well underway.



Gold Fields was advised by Promethium Carbon, a South African carbon advisory company, throughout the development of the project, by assisting in the tender development, the evaluation and allocation of the tender.

The Mineral Resource estimate has been independently audited by Optiro, a Perth-Based minerals industry consulting and advisory organisation. After Athena, Hamlet is the second major discovery in the developing Argo-Athena camp in the last two years and is the result of an extensive investment in the St Ives` near-mine exploration programme.



The Hamlet deposit is located approximately 1km to the east of the new Athena underground mine and 12km south of the Lefroy Mill. Athena and Hamlet are part of a larger mineralised system in the Argo-Athena camp, which is being actively explored by the near mine exploration team. An initial Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resource for the Hamlet Deposit of 2.1 Mt at 3.65 g/t for 251 Koz was reported in Gold Fields` Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserve declaration for the 2009 financial year. Drilling since July 2009 has focussed on shallow mine-definition and extensional drilling aimed at defining the size and content of the deposit. A total of 41,900m of RC (reverse circulation) drilling and 45,700m of diamond core drilling was completed in 10 months. The deposit consists of an upper and lower lode; the lodes have been defined over 600m of strike and to a vertical depth of 800m. The deposit remains open at depth. Drilling to further expand the resource and support a feasibility study is underway and a construction decision is planned for the first half of calendar 2011.



Gold Fields recently intersected the first ore on the margins of the main ore body in underground development at the new Athena mine. The decline and mine development are progressing on time and within budget and full production remains on schedule for mid-calendar 2011. The Athena infrastructure, currently under development, was positioned to provide a potential underground access to the Hamlet deposit, which would enable the rapid development of the project on completion of a successful feasibility study.

Gold Fields announced that the South African Department of Mineral Resources has approved - in terms of the requirements of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act 2002 (Act 28 of 2002) (the Act) - the conversion of the South Deep old order mining right into a new order mining right. Included in this approval, as a new right, is an additional portion of ground known as Uncle Harry's, which is contiguous to South Deep. It contains a mineral resource of approximately 14.5 million ounces of gold, which is largely above the existing South Deep infrastructure. In addition to gold the new order mining right covers silver, uranium, nickel and pyrite.



Recognising that it still has to meet additional Black Economic Empowerment equity ownership requirements by 2014, Gold Fields is in the early stages of developing two further empowerment transactions:

*A broad-based black economic empowerment transaction for a 9% holding in South Deep, as well as an additional 1% of GFIMSA, the company that owns Gold Fields' South African mines; and

*An Employee Share Option Plan for Historically Disadvantaged South African employees of GFMSA for ownership of 10% of GFIMSA. This plan requires the approval of organised labour represented at our South African mines.

Revenue fell to R7.3 billion (R8.5 billion) for the March 2010 quarter. Operating profit declined to R2.6 billion (R4 billion). Net attributable profit decreased to R315.7 million (R1.3 billion). In addition, headline earnings per share declined to 41cps (225cps).



Outlook

In the June 2010 quarter attributable gold production is estimated at between 875 000 and 900 000 attributable equivalent ounces, with an increase in production in the South Africa region. The June quarter is characterised again by the Easter weekend and a number of extra public holidays, which will impact production at the South Africa operations. Total cash cost is estimated at between USD675 and USD690 per ounce (between R160 000 and R163 000 per kilogram) compared with USD703 per ounce (R169 538 per kilogram) in the March quarter. The June estimate is based on an exchange rate of R/USD7.35 and USD/AD0.93, compared with R/USD7.50 and USD/AUD0.90 achieved in the March quarter. NCE is estimated at between USD980 and USD1 000 per ounce (between R233 000 and R240 000 per kilogram) compared with USD1 003 per ounce (R241 860 per kilogram) in the March quarter. The above is subject to the forward looking statement.

Business Day reported Gold Fields, the world's fourth largest gold producer, will boost production 20% a year at its Damang mine in Ghana after installing a new secondary crushing plant. CEO Nick Holland said the installation of the secondary crusher is an important step toward the transformation of Damang into a long- life mine and Gold Fields expect improved production over the next few quarters. Holland added that the company which also has mines in SA, Australia and Peru aimed to extend the life of Damang by at least 15 years by 2025.

Gold Fields announced that its Damang Gold Mine in Ghana is set to increase production significantly, following the successful construction and commissioning of a new Secondary Crushing Plant. The plant will allow Damang to increase the average head grade to its mill by boosting the feed of harder, higher grade "fresh" ore and reducing the feed of softer, lower grade oxide ore. As a result gold production at the mine is forecast to increase up to 240 000 oz a year in the medium term. Current production is around 200 000 oz. Process design of the Secondary Crusher Project commenced early in 2009, while construction of the plant started in November 2009. The crusher was completed in April this year at a total cost of around USD12 million.

Gold Fields Ltd announced that it has started the depth extension of the South Deep ventilation shaft, a crucial milestone in the development of South Deep, the newest mine in Gold Fields' South African portfolio. The ventilation shaft is the second of the two shafts which together form the twin shaft complex of South Deep. The first shaft of the twin shaft complex, the main shaft, was completed in 2004. The shaft will be extended from its current depth of 2 760 meters to 3 000 meters. The deepening and equipping of the shaft, which includes ore storage silos and conveyor belts at shaft bottom, a new rock winder and new headgear, is set to be completed by July 2012.



The twin shaft complex currently has a hoisting capacity of 175 000 tons per month ("tpm") through the main shaft. This is set to increase to 370 000 tpm (comprising 330 000 tons of ore and 40 000 tons of development waste) once the ventilation shaft is completed. The completion of the ventilation shaft and the commensurate increase in production capacity of the twin shaft complex will enable the mine to build up to its full production target of between 750 000 - 800 000 ounces of gold per year by the end of 2014.



Gold Fields has allocated R8.5 billion to be spent before the end of 2014 on developing the South Deep mine. In addition to the deepening of the shaft, the funds will be used for:

* developing a new tailings facility;

* an upgraded metallurgical plant to increase the milling capacity from 220 000 tpm to a milling capacity of 330 000 tpm, with an option to expand it further to 450 000 tpm by 2013, given the potential to raise the hoisting capacity by an additional 120 000 tpm, once the south shaft system has been fully rehabilitated;

* development and installation of infrastructure around the shaft systems;

* change to full plant tailings backfill for increased production levels;

* refrigeration and ventilation installations; and,

* development and opening up of the ore body in preparation for mining.



South Deep, which, at approximately 30 million oz, has one of the largest reserves bases of any gold mine, was acquired by Gold Fields in 2007.

Gold Fields Ltd received notice from the National Union of Mineworkers ("NUM") that it is withdrawing its notice to embark on strike action across all Gold Fields' operations in South Africa. Gold Fields and the NUM have agreed on a process during which issues related to the compulsory functional work capacity testing system will be negotiated.
01 Mar 2010 08:44:11
(Official Notice)
Gold Fields announced that it has received a notice from the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) informing the company that the NUM intends to embark on strike action across all of Gold Fields' operations in South Africa from Sunday, 7 March 2010. The NUM has indicated that the strike will proceed indefinitely unless Gold Fields abolishes the Functional Work Capacity Testing System (the System) on all of its South African mines. The Mine Health and Safety legislation in South Africa requires of an employer to implement a Functional Work Capacity Testing System together with an associated Code of Practice. The purpose of this legislation is to ensure that all individuals working on a mining operation meet the basic standards of fitness required to work safely in an underground situation, and is central to maintaining a safe working environment.



Following consultation with all employee representative organisations, including the NUM, implementation of the System commenced in 2006 for all new recruits at Gold Fields' mining operations in South Africa. The NUM, however, recently expressed its dissatisfaction with the System following certain new recruits being deemed unfit to work on an underground mining operation after undergoing the test. As a result Gold Fields and the NUM have been in dialogue for the past six months in an effort to find a solution for the continuation of the System, which would meet the requirements of the law and be acceptable to both the NUM and the company. The NUM, however, has continued to insist that the System be abolished in its entirety. Gold Fields and the NUM will be meeting with a view to resolving the matter. Failing resolution of the matter, or withdrawal of the strike notice by the NUM, Gold Fields will have no choice but to apply for an urgent interdict to have the proposed strike action declared illegal.

Gold Fields Ltd ("Gold Fields") announced that third quarter production for the group will be approximately five percent below the previous guidance of 850 000 ounces provided on 4 February 2010. It is expected that the lower production will negatively impact cash costs and NCE on a per ounce basis. This follows a decision to accelerate the replacement of a water pump column in the main shaft at the Kloof gold mine in South Africa, which was previously scheduled for replacement later in the year.



The decision to accelerate the replacement of the column is consistent with the group's philosophy of "if we cannot mine safely, we will not mine", as well as the "stop, think fix, verify and continue programme", and was taken after certain sections of the column showed significant corrosion, resulting in the pre-mature failure of some of those sections. Production is expected to return to normal levels by the end of the March quarter, and production for the June quarter should be close to recent levels of production of approximately 5 000 kilograms of gold.

Revenue for the quarter ended December 2009 increased to R8 066 million (R7 415 million for September 2009). Operating profit totalled R3 477 million. Net attributable profit to the owners of the parent was R1 408 million. A dividend of 50 cents was declared.



Outlook

In the March 2010 quarter attributable gold production is estimated at 850,000 attributable equivalent ounces, with a decrease in production at the South Africa region due to the slow start-up after the Christmas break. Production at all the other regions is expected to increase. Total cash cost is estimated at USD650 per ounce (R156,000 per kilogram) compared with USD613 per ounce (R147,648 per kilogram) in the December quarter. The March estimate is based on an exchange rate of R/USD7.45 and USD/AUD0.90 compared with R/USD7.49 and USD/AUD0.91 achieved in the December quarter. NCE is estimated at USD950 per ounce (R228,000 per kilogram) compared with USD900 per ounce (R216,830 per kilogram) in the December quarter. The above is subject to the forward looking statement.

(Official Notice)
Gold Fields Ltd (Gold Fields) today issued updated production guidance. Attributable production for Q2 F2010 is expected to be approximately 900koz, which is 2.8% lower than the previous guidance of 925koz, provided on 29 October 2009. The lower production is mainly as a result of seismic related production stoppages experienced in South Africa. At the Driefontein mine in particular, seven days of production, or almost one third of the December production month, were lost due to a major seismic event which resulted in an extended search and rescue operation. In line with the lower production, total cash costs and notional cash expenditure (NCE) for Gold Fields are expected to be approximately USD 615/oz and USD 900/oz respectively, which is approximately 4% and 3% higher than guidance. The full results for the Group will be published on Thursday, 4 February, 2010.

Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders decreased to R1 536 million (R4 458 million). In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis decreased to 431cps (459cps).



Dividends per share

A final dividend of 80cps was declared for the period under review



Prospects

In the September quarter attributable gold production is forecast to be similar to the June quarter, as a result of the slower start-up in July related to the safety stoppages at Kloof and Driefontein. Total cash costs are forecast to increase from USD512 per ounce to USD590 per ounce or 15%, mainly due to wage and electricity increases in South Africa and the stronger rand/US dollar exchange rate. The September quarter forecast is based on an exchange rate of R/USD8.00 and USD/AUD0.80 compared with R/USD8.56 and USD/AUD0.75 achieved in the June quarter. In rand terms the total cash cost is forecast at R151000 per kilogram compared with R140 916 per kilogram in the June quarter, an increase of 7%. NCE is forecast at USD850 per ounce (R220 000 per kilogram) compared with USD738 per ounce (R203 042 per kilogram) in the June quarter, also significantly impacted by the wage and electricity increases, the increase in capitalised ore reserve development at the South African operations and increased capital expenditure at South Deep. The above is subject to the forward looking statement. The forecast financial information has not been reviewed and reported on by Gold Fields' auditors in accordance with Section 8.40 (a).

The consideration values the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Glencar at approximately GBP28 million. As reflected in Glencar's 2008 annual report, Glencar's principal asset, and only defined resource, is its Komana project in Southern Mali, West Africa ("Komana"). Komana has an indicated and inferred mineral resource of 1 250 000 ounces of gold, within 150 metres of surface. Nick Holland, Chief Executive Officer of Gold Fields said, "The proposed acquisition of Glencar is consistent with Gold Fields' regionalization strategy, which includes growing its production in each of the West Africa, South America and Australasia regions to a million ounces per region within five years. We like Mali and this acquisition forms part of our strategy to grow our presence and footprint in the West African region. The offer fairly values Glencar's existing resource base and exploration upside and we are excited about its future inclusion in the Gold Fields group." The consideration payable will be financed out of Gold Fields' existing resources and is expected to close in late September 2009.

The long-term ratings reflect Gold Fields' satisfactory business risk and intermediate financial risk profiles while the short-term ratings reflect Gold Fields' adequate liquidity.

The company's leverage and financial policy is considered to be moderate. The stable outlook reflects the expectation that Gold Fields will continue to report healthy cash flow generation, supported by ongoing strong gold prices and a weak exchange rate.

Prospects

In March quarter attributable gold production is forecast to increase by around 14 per cent to 960 000 ounces, with a run rate of approximately 975 000 ounces by quarter end. This is lower than the previous guidance of one million ounces due to the decline in the copper price. Notional cash expenditure is forecast to decrease from USD774 per ounce in the December quarter to USD630 per ounce in the March quarter. This decrease is due to an increase in production, and a decrease in capital expenditure due to the completion of the Cerro Corona and Tarkwa expansion projects. Total cash cost is forecast to reduce from USD487 per ounce to USD440 per ounce. The March quarter forecast is based on an exchange rate of USD1 - R10.00.



At the South African operations gold production is forecast to increase by 15 per cent mainly due to increased production from Driefontein and Kloof,which should return to more historic levels with the completion of the safety related projects undertaken over the past two quarters relating to infrastructure and secondary support. This forecast assumes that no significant incidents or accidents occur that could impact production. Total cash cost and Notional cash expenditure at the South African operations are forecast at USD400 per ounce and USD600 per ounce respectively. At the international operations attributable production is forecast to increase by 13 per cent mainly due to a full quarter's production from the new CIL plant at Tarkwa, commissioned in December 2008. Total cash cost and Notional cash expenditure at the international operations are forecast at USD490 per ounce and USD680 per ounce respectively.

If stated at the exchange rates used in the guidance ($/R8.00 and A$/$0.85) group cash costs and notional cash expenditure would have been broadly in line with the guidance of R149,000/kg ($580/oz) and R229,000/kg ($890/oz).

Total cash costs increased by 22% from R125,359 per kilogram (USD502 per ounce) in the June quarter to R153,461 per kilogram (USD617 per ounce) in the September quarter. At the South African operations, operating costs increased from R2,197 million (USD282 million) to R2,468 million (USD319 million), an increase of 12%. This increase was mainly due to the annual wage increase of 10%, the 20% increase in electricity costs and two months of winter power tariffs together with less capitalised development costs due to less off reef development metres associated with the rehabilitation at Kloof and Driefontein. Total cash costs at the South African operations increased 26% from R121,984 per kilogram (USD488 per ounce) to 153,581 per kilogram (USD617 per ounce). Operating costs at the international operations, including gold-in-process movements, increased from R1,534 million (USD199 million) to R1,682 million (USD217 million) in the September quarter, an increase of 10%.

Gold Fields announced that the Arctic Platinum Project (APP) in Finland had reverted to Gold Fields after North American Palladium Ltd (NAP), a Canadian platinum metals group producer, had declined to follow its rights in terms of a Letter of Intent entered into between the parties and announced on 18 October 2005 and an acquisition and framework agreement subsequently entered into between the parties. In terms of the agreement Gold Fields and NAP formed a joint venture to further explore mining properties and possibly develop a mine at Gold Fields' Arctic Platinum Project, located approximately 60 kilometres south of the city of Rovaniemi in northern Finland. Gold Fields also granted an option to NAP to acquire up to a 60% undivided interest in the project.



NAP's option to acquire its interest in APP was subject to NAP undertaking approved expenditure on the project of approximately USD12.5 million, and making a decision to develop a mine at the property, prior to the expiry of the option period on 31 August 2008. Had NAP satisfied these conditions and exercised the option, it would have been required to issue up to approximately 9.2 million NAP common shares to Gold Fields in consideration for the acquisition of its interest in APP which, based on the weighted average trading price on the American Stock Exchange for the eleven trading days commencing on October 11, 2005, would have valued the consideration at approximately USD45 million. During the option period NAP was the operator of the project.



NAP has informed Gold Fields that it will not follow its rights in terms of the agreement and therefore the option has expired and the agreement has been terminated. With effect from 1 September 2008, Gold Fields has therefore again taken full control and management of APP and will explore ways in which to realize value for its shareholders from this asset.

According to Business Report, Gold Fields will retrench more than a third of the miners at its South Deep mine as the group aims to boost production, cut costs and turn a profit from the mine. It will cost Gold Fields more than R70 million to sack 2050 workers as the company introduces mechanised mining and retains a staff complement at the mine of just 3 400. Gold Fields has performed worse than its rivals, shedding more than 41% of its market value since the middle of March 2008. About 80% of this sharp decline is attributable to South Deep's disappointing performance.

At the South African operations gold production is forecast to decrease by 13% due to the safety intervention at Kloof and the rehabilitation at South Deep explained earlier. Accordingly, cash costs and notional cash expenditure is forecast at USD610 per ounce and USD860 per ounce respectively. At the international operations production should increase by 9% mainly due to the first production from Cerro Corona. Cash costs and notional cash expenditure are forecast at USD570 per ounce and USD1 060 per ounce respectively.



It is anticipated that production will be at around an annualised 4 million attributable ounces by early in calendar 2009. South Africa will contribute approximately 2.30 million ounces, dependant on the outcome of the Kloof Main shaft rehabilitation, with the balance coming from the international operations. Ghana will contribute 0.72 million attributable ounces, Austrialia 0.60 million ounces and approximately 0.38 million attributable equivalent ounces from Cerro Corona. Notional cash expenditure at this time is forecast at USD725 per ounce at an exchange rate of USD1 = R8.00.

At the South African operations, subject to the sustainable supply of power, and Gold Fields' ability to man the operations at the required level, production for the June quarter is likely to be between 2 and 4% higher than the March quarter. Cash costs should be slightly lower with the higher production partially offset by increases in power and commodities. At the international operations gold production is forecast to be similar to the March quarter, with costs slightly higher due to increases in power and diesel input costs and an increased royalty charge at St Ives.

Gold Fields reported that normal mining operations will only resume in mining areas at 95 level and above at the South Deep Gold Mine near Westonaria on Thursday morning, 8 May 2008, after a day of mourning and a memorial service which is to be held at the Twin Shaft Complex on Wednesday, May 7. At a meeting at the Department of Minerals and Energy (DME) in Johannesburg today with mine management and trade unions, the Chief Inspector of Mines agreed that the conditions of a Section 54 order had been met and the mine could now recommence mining operations.



Underground working at South Deep had been suspended, except for essential services for emergency purposes, since 17h40 on 1 May when the Section 54 was issued following the shaft accident that tragically claimed nine lives. The Section 54 required that all winding operations at South Deep, Kloof and Driefontein Gold Mines be suspended pending assessment of the integrity of the winding ropes. This order was fully complied with, and subsequent to the issue thereof, only essential services for emergency purposes were conducted at South Deep. Normal winding operations have resumed at Kloof and Driefontein Gold Mines. Gold Fields is committed to assisting the DME in its investigation into the accident at South Deep on 1 May 2008.

Gold Fields and Mvelaphanda Resources Ltd ("Mvela Res") announced that the parties have agreed that Mvela Res will receive 50 million Gold Fields shares if and when Mvela Res' future stake of 15% in GFI Mining South Africa (Pty) Ltd ("GFIMSA") is exchanged at the instance of either Gold fields or Mvela Res, for shares in Gold Fields. GFIMSA is the vehicle that owns and houses the South African assets of Gold Fields. The exact number of shares, within the range of the floor and cap (45 and 55 million shares respectively), which Mvela Res would have received should the exchange have been implemented in terms of current agreements, was extremely volatile because of the input parameters for a discounted cash flow valuation, and the complex nature of the formula, and agreeing the number of shares now gives certainty on an equitable basis to both parties.

Gold Fields confirmed that it received formal notification from the Department of Minerals and Energy that, following representations by the Chamber of Mines and consultation with all stakeholders, the mining industry had been allocated an additional 260 MW of power which will effectively allow mines to increase their power consumption from the current level of 90% of average historical consumption. This new allocation will be phased in over the next two weeks and is aimed at minimizing the disruptive impact of power rationing on the mining industry, job losses and mine safety.

(Official Notice)
Gold Fields gold production for the current quarter (Q3 F08) is forecast to decline by between 20% and 25% against the December quarter (Q2 F08), as a result of the total suspension of production for one full week due to power constraints, continued power rationing, and the seasonal impact of the Christmas break. It is further confirmed that, as a consequence of the 10% power reduction imposed by Eskom, sustainable production at Gold Fields' South African operations is likely to decline by between 15 and 20 percent from the June quarter (Q4 F08) onwards, as previously advised. Eskom has indicated that the current quota of 90% of average historic electricity consumption will remain in force for at least five years, through to 2012.



To achieve the 10% reduction in electricity consumption imposed by Eskom the following actions are proposed:

* The Number 6 and 7 shafts as well as the 9 shaft Depth Extension Project at Driefontein, and the Number 3 and 8 shafts at Kloof Gold Mine, are to be mothballed, closed or scaled back, potentially affecting approximately 4 900 employees at these two mines.

* South Deep Gold Mine is to be restructured as a result of the depletion of the Ventersdorp Contact Reef horizon above 95-level and a new strategy implemented which focuses primarily on the completion of the twin shaft infrastructure and development capital programmes. This too is unfortunately compounded by the power rationing. The total number of South Deep employees potentially affected is approximately 2 000.

* Production at Beatrix Gold Mine is unlikely to be affected by the reduction in power supply. The total number of employees and contractors potentially affected at all of Gold Fields' South African mines is 6 900 out of a total employee population of 53 000.

Gold Fields reports that Eskom last night reinstated the authorisation for mines to increase their power load from 80% to 90%. This follows after authorisation was withdrawn late yesterday morning. Gold Fields operations are cautiously remobilising towards the 90% level, with due consideration for the safety implications of an erratic and uncertain power supply.

Business Day commented that South Deep is giving Gold Fields a few "headaches". Gold Fields has owned the mine for more than year and is still evaluating ways to access the rich but very deep deposits. Gold production was down in the December quarter and the power crisis was likely to reduce output by a further 25% in the March quarter. The group is still completing a new mine design for South Deep.

Gold Fields, on 17 May 06, published its Mineral Resource and Ore Reserve Statement for the six month period ended on 31 December 2005. This represents a change in the reporting cycle, from June 30 to December 31, in order to align with the group's financial reporting schedule. Mineral Resources, inclusive of Ore Reserves, increased by 3% to 179 343 million ounces and Ore Reserves by 1% to 65 319 million ounces, both numbers net of depletion.



Ian Cockerill, Chief Executive Officer of Gold Fields said: "We are pleased that we have again been able to replace the reserves that we have mined, and to increase our overall resource and reserve position, despite having to use a SEC mandated 3 year trailing average gold price, which is considerably below prevailing spot prices." "Conservatively estimated, if a spot price of R130 000 per kilogram was used for this declaration, the reserves at our South African operations would have been about 9.5 million ounces higher."



Mineral Resources were calculated using a gold price of R105 000 per kilogram in South Africa; AUD650 in Australia; and USD475 in Ghana and Peru. Ore Reserves were calculated using a gold price of R92 000 per kilogram in South Africa; AUD560 in Australia; and USD400 in Ghana and Peru.

Net interest and investment income after taking into account interest paid, increased from R1 million to R17 million largely due to enhanced returns on equity linked rehabilitation investments. Net profit attributable to ordinary shareholders amounted to R262 million or 53cps (R39 million or 8cps) and headline earnings grew to R261 million or 53cps (R36 million or 7cps).

The board unanimously elected Alan J Wright (64), currently the deputy chairman of Gold Fields, to succeed Thompson as non-executive chairman. Thompson in early 2005 indicated his intention to step down as chairman of Gold Fields after the defeat of the Harmony bid. "I leave confident in the knowledge that Gold Fields has now settled down and is stronger for the experience, and well focused on the new challenges that lie ahead," said Thompson. Referring to the appointment of Wright as his successor he said: "Alan is a veteran of the gold mining industry and well equipped to step into the role of Chairman, and is committed to the strategy of growing the company internationally." The board thanked Thompson for his leadership over the past seven years and especially for the role that he played in building Gold Fields into a truly global company. "During his seven years at the helm he directed Gold Fields from being a largely South African company, producing just more than 2 million ounces of gold per year and with a market capitalization of less than R7 billion, to become a truly global producer of well over 4 million ounces of gold per year and a market capitalization in excess of R45 billion. He made a lasting contribution in shaping the fortunes of the modern Gold Fields."

According to Gold Fields CEO, Ian Cockerill, the company would be in a stronger position in its December quarter than in the September quarter due to two projects that are under way, aimed at increasing revenue and cutting costs. Project 100+ would focus on labour management, medical facilities, accommodation, information technology and improved maintenance worth R200 million, while Project Beyond would concentrate on procurement and supply savings through the rationalisation of suppliers, standardisation of products and the improvement of forecasts and planning. Business Day noted that R30 million worth of savings were achieved last year and it is expected that benefits of about R80 million would be realised over the next two years.

Attributable gold production decreased by 8% to 993 000 ounces in the September 2005 quarter, compared with 1 078 000 ounces achieved in the June 2005 quarter. Production at the South African operations was 647 000 ounces, compared with 687 000 in the June quarter, a 6% decline. Attributable production at the international operations decreased 12 per cent from 391 000 ounces to 346 000 ounces. At the South African operations, Driefontein and Kloof performed largely as expected with both operations impacted by the strike and Kloof experiencing continuing grade problems.



The US dollar gold price increased 2% from USD429 per ounce in the June quarter to USD437 per ounce in the September quarter. This, together with the weakening of the rand against the US dollar, from an average of R6.39 to R6.52, resulted in the rand gold price increasing 4%, from R88 076 per kilogram in the June quarter to R91 669 per kilogram in the September quarter. The decrease in production was only partially offset by the increase in the rand gold price achieved resulting in revenue decreasing from R3 156 million (USD492 million) to R3 023 million (USD464 million) this quarter. Operating costs for the September quarter, at R2 457 million (USD377 million), decreased by 1 per cent when compared with the June quarters R2 474 million (USD386 million). After accounting for minority interests, net earnings amounted to R39 million (USD6 million) or 8 SA cps (USD0.01 per share), compared with a restated loss of R27 million (USD5 million) or negative 6 SA cps (negative USD0.01 per share) in the previous quarter. Headline earnings was R36 million (USD6 million) or 7 SA cps (USD0.01 ps), compared with restated earnings of R122 million (USD19 million) or 24 SA cps (USD0.04 per share) last quarter.



Out look

Gold production at the South African and international operations should increase in the December quarter. Cash costs should decrease accordingly.

Gold Fields has formed a partnership with North American Palladium (NAP), a Canadian company, which could lead to the development of its Arctic Platinum Project in Finland. In terms of the agreement NAP would have to complete a USD5 million feasibility study as well as a USD7.5 million rescoping study and exploration programme. Should the mine go ahead, NAP would be entitled to a 60% stake in the project if it paid Gold Fields USD45 million through the issue of NAP shares. According to Business Day the conditions must be met by the end of June 2008.

Gold Fields yesterday finalised a two-year wage agreement with Unions and Associations, effectively bringing to an end the strike that commenced with the evening shift on Sunday, 7 August 2005. This settlement was reached as part of the industry-wide negotiations co-ordinated by the South African Chamber of Mines.



All employees are expected to return to work today, Friday, 12 August 2005. While the settlement for different categories of employees range between 6% and 7%, the weighted impact will be a 6.5% increase in the salary bill of the group`s South African operations for F2006, and for F2007 CPIX plus 1%, or a minimum of 6%, for the lowest paid employees and CPIX plus 1%, or a minimum of 5.5% for the rest.



Gold Fields has a range of cost savings and productivity improvement initiatives in place across all of its operations, through which to mitigate upward cost pressures. Because labour costs account for approximately 50% of total costs on the South African operations, the impact of this salary increase on total production costs will be approximately 3%.
