As announced on 11 November 2016, Lonmin has also agreed to acquire Anglo American Platinum?s (?AAP?) 42.5% equity interest in the Pandora JV and is currently in the process of obtaining regulatory approvals for this acquisition which we anticipate to complete during 2017. completion of the two transactions will result in Lonmin increasing its ownership in the Pandora JV to 100%.

The transaction is also subject to approval by Lonmin?s lending banks. completion of the transaction is expected to occur during 2017 following the fulfilment of all conditions precedent.



Note 1: The maximum amount of Cash Calls and any Interest Payments, in the event that the transaction takes more than 12 months to complete, payable to Mvelaphanda is capped at R50 million in order to ensure that the transaction would not be treated as a class 1 transaction under LR10 Annex 1 5(R)(3). Note 2: In 2017 real terms.

Lonmin Plc announces its unaudited production results for the three months to 31 March 2017. Lonmin also publishes today, in a separate announcement, its Interim Results for the half year ended 31 March 2017.



Overview

-The 12 month rolling LTIFR to 31 March improved by 2.2% to 4.88 from 4.99 at 31 December 2016. Regrettably two colleagues were fatally injured in the period.

-Tonnes mined from our Generation 2 shafts were 1.9 million tonnes, a decrease of 2.8% or 55,000 tonnes on the comparative period, as K3?s underperformance predominantly weighed down the overall performance. Our Generation 1 shafts produced 0.5 million tonnes, a decrease of 21.8% or 133,000 tonnes on the comparative period, in line with our plan to close high cost areas, in response to the oversupplied market, as seen from lower prices. Newman shaft was closed during the period.

-The poor mining performance from Q1 2017 continued into January 2017, with mining production of 584,000 tonnes for the month. The March production of 978,000 tonnes illustrates the mining improvement from the poor performance in the first four months to 31 January 2017.

-K3 produced 276,000 tonnes in March 2017, the highest monthly mining production for the last 29 months, on the back of addressing the management/union impasse and change in management, compared to 126,000 tonnes in January 2016.

-Saffy shaft produced 213,000 tonnes in March 2017, an all-time record for the life of the shaft.

Revenue for the interim period decreased to USD486 million (2016: USD515 million). Operating loss came to USD181 million (2016: loss of USD15 million). Loss for the period attributable to equity shareholders of Lonmin was recorded at USD182 million (2016: loss of USD4 million). Furthermore, headline loss per share came to USD13.8 cents per share (2016: headline loss per share of USD1.8 cents per share).



Dividends

No dividends were declared during the period.w



Outlook and Guidance:

*Sales guidance of 650,000 to 680,000 Platinum ounces for the full financial year maintained on the back of improved mining production and smelter clean-up project.

*Lonmin are revising our unit costs guidance for the year from between R10,800 and R11,300 to between R11,300 to R11,800 per PGM ounce to reflect the weak production in the first four months of the year.

*Lonmin continue to aim to fund sustaining capital expenditure from operating activities and third party funding. Consequently we are reducing our full year guidance from R1.8 billion to a range of R1.4 billion to R1.5 billion, which includes around R400 million for the third party funded Bulk Tailings Treatment project, whilst minimising near term impact to production.

Market Outlook 2017

The outlook for platinum is for demand to be virtually unchanged. In Western Europe diesel's market share has been edging slightly lower, and is projected to continue to do so, but will be somewhat offset by continued growth in vehicle sales. In addition, tightening emissions' legislation and increased vehicle production in the emerging markets should further offset any further decline in Europe. So a stable outlook for auto catalyst demand is projected.



Global demand for jewellery is forecast to improve slightly after weakening in 2016. Solid investment demand is anticipated as bar and coin and Exchange Traded Fund investment are expected to be positive. Several new glass fabrication facilities in the rest of the world are set to lift platinum industrial requirements slightly next year, offsetting declining demand for nitric acid production and slower propane dehydrogenation capacity growth in China.



Though primary producers are indicating similar production levels in 2017, there is a risk due to the current PGM basket price for further mine closures and project delays at producers in the fourth quartile of the cost curve. Lonmin believes that ultimately mine closures due to low prices will drive further deficits.

Lonmin Plc announces the conclusion of negotiations with the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (?AMCU?) about wages and conditions of service. The agreement applies to all employees within the bargaining unit in job grades Paterson A4 to C4. The three-year agreement, which is effective from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2019, provides employees with a realistic and competitive settlement and ensures the continued sustainability of Lonmin.



The key points of the agreement are:

*Increases for Cat 4 to 9: R1,000 per year or 7% (whichever is greater) on basic salary

*Increases for Officials (B and C band): 7% on Total Cost to Company for each year of the agreement

*Living Out Allowance increases by R100 in each year of the agreement

*Allowances calculated off pensionable basic

*Rock Drill Operator allowance increases by 6% in each year

*Holiday Leave Allowance (HLA) calculated off Normal Basic from year 2 (1 July 2017)

*Medical contributions for Cat 4-9 employees will increase in January of each year. The medical aid contributions increase will be based on the medical aid inflation as determined by the Board of Trustees of the medical aid. The increase is estimated to be 13.5%.



At the end of this wage agreement, a Rock Drill Operator at Lonmin will earn R12 296 (basic salary) and a guaranteed package of R19 455. The impact of the wage agreement for this bargaining unit is an increase of 7.8% in financial year one, 8.0% in financial year two and 7.1% in financial year three or an average of 7.6% over the three-year period.

Lonmin Plc (?Lonmin? or ?the Company?), announces that it has secured competitive funding of $50 million for the Bulk Tailings Treatment project (?the BTT project? or ?the project?) through a specific project finance metal streaming arrangement. The first tranche of project funding of $9 million has now been received and work has already started on the project.



The BTT project involves the re-mining of Lonmin?s Easterns Tailings Dam. The project entails the reprocessing of 26 million tonnes of Tailings material at a rate of 300,000 tonnes per month. Commissioning and ramp up to full production is expected during the 2018 Financial Year.



Once at steady-state, the project is expected to produce about 29,000 ounces of Platinum per year or some 55,000 ounces of PGM, at a yield of 0.5 grammes per tonne (5PGE+Au) (grade of 1.42 grammes per tonne at a recovery of 35%). The project is part of Lonmin?s business plan and is expected to produce the lowest cost ounces in the Lonmin portfolio.

Revenue for the interim period increased to USD515 million (2015: USD508 million). EBITDA was recorded at USD36 million (2015: loss of USD6 million). Operating loss narrowed to USD15 million (2015: loss of USD 84 million). Loss for the period attributable to equity shareholders of Lonmin Plc reduced to USD4 million (2015: loss of USD79 million). Furthermore, headline loss per share decreased to USD1.8 cents per share (2015: loss of 160.4 cents per share).



Dividend

No dividends were declared during the period (6 months to 31 March 2015 and year ended 30 September 2015 - USDnil).





Market Outlook:

For the remainder of 2016 Lonmin expects automotive and chemical industry demand for platinum to remain firm despite current concerns over the diesel market and the economic headwinds in China. Demand should lift as emerging markets continue to catch up with the ever tightening emission standards of developed markets, leading to potentially higher PGM loadings.



The jewellery market is expected to be static during the year but still offers upside opportunity over the medium to long term.



Though current prices have trended upwards since the lows of Q1, prices are expected to remain lower than incentive prices for long term projects in the platinum industry.

Revenue for the year grew to USD1.3 billion (USD965 million). LBITDA narrowed to USD52 million (loss of USD113 million). Operating loss widened to USD2.0 billion (R255 million). Loss attributable to equity shareholders worsened to USD1.7 billion (loss of USD188 million). In addition, headline loss per share rose to USD57.1cps (loss of USD32.8cps).



Market Outlook 2016

Reporting of how the VW diesel crisis might effect PGMs has been varied. The story broke in the US and added to the negative view of diesels that has prevailed in Europe for much of the past year. However, the crisis highlights the need for tightened and harmonised legislation worldwide which would require more platinum demand.



The diesel market is vital for platinum, but less so for palladium and rhodium. The platinum used in heavy duty diesels is largely ?captive demand?, as diesel powertrains are expected to be the dominant choice for the foreseeable future. The risk applies only to light duty vehicles, where gasoline vehicles with much lower platinum content are a ready substitute. Nonetheless, diesel remains essential to meet stringent CO2 targets in Europe. Furthermore, outside Europe the fundamentals remain in place for growing platinum auto catalyst demand, as half of the world?s vehicles still do not comply with the latest emissions legislation, which would benefit demand for platinum.

The board of Lonmin ("the company" and, together with its subsidiaries, ?the Group?) announced an underwritten Rights Issue to raise gross proceeds of approximately USD407 million.



Highlights

* 46 for 1 underwritten Rights Issue of 26 997 717 400 New Shares at GBP1.00 pence per New Share (or, in the case of Qualifying South African Shareholders, ZAR 0.214 per New Share) to raise net proceeds of approximately USD369 million (after payment of fees and expenses relating to the Rights Issue and the Amended Facilities Agreements).

* The Public Investment Corporation, which holds approximately seven per cent. of the issued share capital of Lonmin, has irrevocably committed to take up its entitlement in full in the Rights Issue and has sub- underwritten a material portion of the Rights Issue in excess of its entitlement.

* The net proceeds of the Rights Issue will be used to fund the implementation of the Business Plan, thereby improving the Group's ability to withstand potential adverse movements in external factors, specifically a continuation of the weak PGM pricing environment, and repositioning the Group on the South African PGM industry cost curve; and for general corporate purposes, including as additional working capital, strengthening the balance sheet and allowing the Group to meet its obligations and commitments as they fall due and reducing the Group's borrowings.

* Upon the Underwriting Agreement with respect to the Rights Issue becoming wholly unconditional and certain customary conditions being met, the Amended Facilities Agreements which the company has entered into with its existing lending syndicate will come into effect providing:

(i) an extension of maturity of the Existing US Dollar Facility from May 2016 to May 2020 (assuming Lonmin exercises its option to extend the term up until this date) and a reduction in the amount of the Amended US Dollar Facilities to USD225 million (as compared to USD360 million for the Existing US Dollar Facility); and

(ii) an extension of maturity of the Existing Rand Facilities from June 2016 to May 2020 (assuming Lonmin exercises its option to extend the term up until this date).

Lonmin Plc ("Lonmin" or "the Company") today provides an update on the action it has already taken to deliver its programme of shaft closures and workforce reduction announced on 24th July. The programme is planned to further reduce Lonmin?s cost base and underpin the Company?s ability to sustain a depressed Platinum pricing environment over an extended period of time. Lonmin?s stoppage of high-cost production and the potential reduction of the workforce by a total of 6,000 is intended to reduce costs and capital expenditure. Over the next two years 100,000 ounces of high-cost production will have been eliminated but in the meantime the available resources of Hossy will be mined for value. By the end of 2017 production will have reduced by 100,000 ounces per annum. Management has the target of cutting fixed and overhead costs at the same time.



Progress so far:

*1,400 employees have left the business.

*The Section 189 consultation process on the remainder of the significant downsizing is proceeding on schedule.

*Labour relations continue on a positive and realistic basis.

*Against a cost guidance of R10,800 per PGM ounce, at the end of July year-to-date underlying cash costs on an unaudited basis were R10,499 per PGM ounce, emphasizing the focused management attention.

*Underlying cash costs for the full year are expected to remain below the cost guidance of R10,800 per ounce.



The Board and Management have set the clear objective of containing capital expenditure while cash-harvesting immediately available ore reserves from the Hossy and Newman shafts. To support the Board and Executive Management in delivering these objectives, Lonmin has appointed Ron Series, a leading finance specialist, as advisor.



Lonmin?s objective is to maximize cash in the short-term and preserve long-term value for shareholders and all stakeholders and ensure the business is put in the right position to take full advantage of any improvement in PGM prices from the currently depressed levels.

Lonmin would like to update the market on the release on 25 June 2015 of the report by the Marikana Commission of Inquiry into the deaths of striking mineworkers and others at Lonmin?s Marikana mine in August 2012.



The President of South Africa, Mr Jacob Zuma, released Judge Farlam?s report and made a televised address. Lonmin issued a media statement later in the evening, in lieu of a regulatory announcement given the time of night, in accordance with regulations.



Lonmin believes the report?s release is a vital step in the healing process after the tragedy of Marikana. The Company is grateful for the efforts of Judge Farlam, Chairperson of the Commission, his team and all those involved in the lengthy process of the inquiry.



The report, which runs to more than 640 pages, and which Lonmin had not seen in advance of its publication, will take time to properly digest. The Company does not believe that it would be helpful to respond in detail so soon after publication.



However, whilst Lonmin cannot comment on the findings of the report as they pertain to others, it is clear from the summary provided that everyone involved in the tragic events of 2012 has lessons to learn. Lonmin is no exception and we will be studying Judge Farlam?s findings in detail before responding to them.



The Company will update the market further when appropriate.

Prior to this, in his previous service to Lonmin, he served in a variety of operational management positions, including Vice President Mining.

Dividends

No dividends were declared during the period.



Outlook and Guidance

The strong performance of our operations enables us to maintain our guidance for the full year of saleable metal-in- concentrate of around 750 000 Platinum ounces. The smelter complex is operating at normal production levels following the furnace incidents experienced in Q1 and we are utilising our surplus furnace capacity to maintain our sales guidance of around 730 000 Platinum ounces.



Lonmin is pleased with its progress with the cost savings programme. The company maintain its unit cost guidance of R10 800 per PGM ounce for the full year.



As a consequence of the persisting low Dollar PGM prices and short to medium-term uncertainty around Platinum prices the company is reducing its expected 2015 capital expenditure from USD185 million to USD160 million.



Lonmin's level of borrowings was higher at the 31 March 2015 as a direct result of the lower sales volumes in H1 which will unwind in H2. The second half outcome in terms of debt reduction and earnings will, as always, be highly dependent on the prevailing PGM prices and exchange rates. At current prices, the sales falling into the second half as a result of the stock build-up at the end of March are expected to reduce debt by some USD170 million but are only expected to contribute to earnings in a small way as those stocks are held at close to current net realisable value. The company is confident of managing its working capital requirements through cost conservation measures and capital discipline to keep borrowings and debt covenants well within its committed debt facilities.



The company is planning on the basis that the current depressed pricing environment will persist for at least two years and as a result it expects its capital expenditure over the next two financial years to reduce to USD150 million per annum, from our previous guidance of USD250-USD350 million per annum whilst maintaining sales of 750 000 Platinum ounces for each year.

Lonmin (?the company?), the world?s third largest Platinum producer, announces its production results for the three months to 31 March 2015 (unaudited).



Overview

Lonmin to reports that the company has been fatality free for eighteen months. Zero harm is indeed achievable and the company remains vigilant. However, the rolling 12 month average Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) for the 12 months to 31 March 2015 increased to 4.51 incidents per million man hours compared to 3.23 at 31 March 2014. To curb the increase in lost time injuries and high potential incidents an updated and focussed Safety Improvement Plan has been developed.



Lonmin has successfully maintained the strong operational momentum built up since the strike. A total of 2.8 million tonnes was mined in the quarter, 2.2 million tonnes higher than the prior year period which was impacted by strike action but broadly in-line with Q2 2013. Notably, saleable Platinum metal-in-concentrate was the highest Q2 production since 2007 with output of 181 814 Platinum ounces. This was 146 388 platinum ounces higher than the prior year period which was impacted by the strike and 0.7% higher than Q2 2013.



As expected, refined Platinum production of 122 480 ounces was impacted by the repairs to both the Number One and Two furnaces. This represented an increase in refined Platinum production of 61 512 ounces compared to the prior year period but a decrease of 68,149 ounces compared to Q2 2013. In process stocks were correspondingly around 200 000 PGM ounces higher than planned due to the smelter outages. The furnace repairs were completed during the quarter as scheduled and are now in full production and we expect to process the build-up in concentrate stock by the end of the financial year.



Sales of 119 051 Platinum ounces were in-line with refined production.

Lonmin (?the company?) is in consultations with unions and employees over efforts to reduce costs. These reductions are aimed at protecting the company and its employees against persistent low Platinum Group Metal (?PGM?) prices.



Lonmin hopes to be able to complete this process without needing to make forced retrenchments, which it regards as a last resort. Proposals under discussion would lead to c.10% reduction in labour cost and equates to around 3 500 people. This reduction should hopefully be achieved through a voluntary process.



The efficiencies and savings needed are being implemented from top to bottom such that the Executive Committee headcount has been reduced by 22%.

The Board of Lonmin (?Lonmin?) has noted the statement made today by Glencore plc (?Glencore?). Glencore announced its intention of seeking shareholder approval for the divestment of its non-core 23.9 per cent shareholding in Lonmin as a distribution in specie to Glencore shareholders.



Lonmin views Glencore?s proposal as a constructive way forward which would enable Glencore shareholders to continue their participation in Lonmin?s future. Glencore inherited its Lonmin shareholding through its acquisition of Xstrata Plc in May 2013. Since 9 September 2013 Glencore has had two representatives, Gary Nagle and Paul Smith, on the Lonmin board and Lonmin has benefited from their guidance and input.



The proposal is for the approval of Glencore shareholders at their own Annual General Meeting on 7 May 2015. Lonmin has been advised that when Glencore shareholder approval for the distribution of its Lonmin shareholding has been received, Gary Nagle and Paul Smith will step down from the Lonmin Board.



Lonmin welcomes the supportive statements from Glencore Chief Executive Ivan Glasenberg concerning Lonmin and its management team and that the senior Glencore management team do not currently plan to sell the Lonmin shares they would receive from the distribution in specie. This indication of support is backed by Lonmin?s good operational performance.



Lonmin?s first quarter production report issued on 29th January 2015 stated that it has maintained the strong operational momentum and achieved the highest production from underground since 2011. Total attributable tonnes mined in the quarter were 2.8 million tonnes, 7.2% higher than the prior year period. Employee attendance levels have returned quickly to normal levels following the December 2014 holiday period.



Saleable metal-in-concentrate was the highest Q1 production since 2007 with output of 200,170 Platinum ounces. This was 11.4%, or 20,479 ounces higher than the prior year period.



Refined Platinum production of 139,823 ounces was reduced because of the repairs to the Number One furnace and decreased by 56,426 ounces compared to the prior year period. Lonmin expects to process the build-up in concentrate stock by the end of the financial year.



Sales of 146,890 Platinum ounces increased by 9.0%, or 12,086 ounces on the prior year period.

Lonmin (?the company?), the world?s third largest Platinum producer, announced its production results for the three months to 31 December 2014 (unaudited) and an update for the period from 1 October 2014 to today?s date.



Overview

Lonmin is pleased to report that the company has been fatality free for the fourth quarter in succession following the one fatality which occurred on 26 October 2013. The rolling 12 month average Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) for the 12 months to 31 December 2014 improved by 2.7% to 3.58 incidents per million man hours compared to 3.69 at 31 December 2013.



Lonmin maintained the strong operational momentum that was built up in Q4 2014 by achieving the highest Q1 production from underground (including Pandora) since 2011. Total attributable tonnes mined in the quarter were 2.8 million tonnes, 7.2%, or 0.2 million tonnes higher than the prior year period. Employee attendance levels have returned quickly to normal levels following the December 2014 holiday period.



Saleable metal-in-concentrate was the highest Q1 production since 2007 with output of 200 170 Platinum ounces.



This was 11.4%, or 20,479 ounces higher than the prior year period.



Refined Platinum production of 139,823 ounces was unfortunately impacted by the repairs to the Number One furnace and decreased by 28.8%, or 56 426 ounces compared to the prior year period. The company expects to process the build-up in concentrate stock by the end of the financial year.



Sales of 146 890 Platinum ounces increased by 9.0%, or 12 086 ounces on the prior year period.

Lonmin announced that it has safely stopped its Number Two Furnace following the detection of electrode breaks in the furnace which were creating an unstable and high temperature operating environment. The stoppage, which is not expected to exceed 21 days, should allow the integrity of the furnace conditions to be safely addressed. The three smaller Pyromets continue to operate. The work on the Number One Furnace is progressing well and on schedule.



Lonmin expects 2015 sales to be back end loaded into the second half of the 2015 financial year and there will be an increased build up of concentrate stocks, which they expect to unwind by year end. Lonmin continue to explore commercial ways of mitigating the stock build up. Lonmin expects their net borrowings to further increase at the end of March 2015 as a direct result of the lower sales volumes in the first half, but they are expected to remain within Lonmin's borrowing facilities. The company's sales guidance for 2015 financial year remains unchanged.



Lonmin will update the market when they release their 2015 Q1 Production results on Thursday 29 January 2015.

Operational update



Lonmin announced that it has safely stopped its Number One Furnace after a leak of molten furnace matte was detected. An assessment of the furnace has shown that mechanical structure and refractories below the tap hole as well as the copper tap block need to be replaced. The life of this furnace has been extended through careful operation but during the five months strike it was impossible to operate the smelter on a consistent basis. In order to mitigate operational risk as we carry out these repairs we have decided to bring forward the planned hearth rebuild of the furnace which was originally scheduled and budgeted for October 2015. We expect the repairs to take around three months.



We do not expect our refined production for the 2015 financial year to be affected. Our back-up facilities for such events have been put into operation. The Number Two Furnace will continue to operate and we have restarted the three smaller Pyromet furnaces.



Financial impact



This has the potential to back-end load sales into the second half of the 2015 financial year and there will be a build-up of concentrate stocks which is expected to unwind by year end. We are looking at commercial ways to mitigate this. We are maintaining our overall sales and unit cost guidance for 2015 financial year. Although we expect our net borrowings to increase at the end of March 2015 as a direct result of the lower sales volume in H1, they are expected to remain well within our borrowing facilities. The capital spend for the repairs will be absorbed into the guided capital spend for the year. We continue to focus on our cash conservation measures.

Revenue for the year ended 30 September 2014 plummeted to USD965 million (2013: USD1.5 billion). LBITDA decreased to USD113 million (2013: earnings of USD304 million), operating loss was USD255 million (2013: profit of USD147 million), while loss attributable to equity shareholders of Lonmin Plc came in at USD188 million (2013: profit of USD166 million). Furthermore, headline loss per share was USD32.8cps (2013: headline earnings of 32.1cps).



Dividend

No dividends were declared by Lonmin Plc for the financial years ended 30 September 2014 and 30 September 2013



Outlook

For the medium term, we expect to maintain sales of around 750,000 platinum ounces. This will be supported by capital expenditure of between USD250 million and $USD350 million per annum. We will continue to manage a balance between capital investment and maintaining a sound balance sheet. Consequently, capital spend in any year will be subject to prevailing market conditions. Despite the significant inflationary pressures we face, we would expect to contain increases in unit costs to below wage inflation.

Lonmin is pleased to announce that it has successfully achieved completion of the return to full production earlier than forecast. Tonnes mined in both August and September 2014 exceeded production reported for the comparable months in 2013 which were 1.0 million tonnes in August 2013 and 1.04 million tonnes in September 2013. From August onwards, Lonmin has achieved steady-state production at normal levels.



Our successful ramp up has been accelerated by earlier and stronger levels of employees returning to work than had been previously expected resulting in a rapid, safe and efficient ramp-up of our operations and plants. Excellent attendance levels have continued and Lonmin has experienced strong performance across all our operations. Prudent cash and balance sheet management has enabled return to full production to be completed well within the Company?s existing financial resources. Lonmin is pleased with the ongoing strong response from its entire workforce and in August announced the restructure of its senior executive management team to facilitate the forward momentum of the Company, which is proving effective. The three-year wage settlement achieved in July continues to facilitate a constructive relationship with all employees. Lonmin will update the market in greater detail when it releases its Q4 Production Report and announces its Final Results on 10 November 2014.

Lonmin ("the company") announces that Western Platinum Ltd. ("WPL"), a subsidiary of the company, has entered into certain commitments with Incwala Platinum (Pty) Ltd. ("Incwala") under which WPL will advance a non-interest bearing loan to Incwala, and commits to make a further such loan in March 2015. Incwala beneficially owns 18% of the issued share capital of WPL and its sister company Eastern Platinum Ltd., Lonmin's principal operating subsidiaries in South Africa, which forms the cornerstone of the company's Black Economic Empowerment arrangements. As such, this is a smaller related party transaction falling within the scope of Listing Rule 11.1.10R.



WPL will advance the sum of R242 million (circa USD22 million at current exchange rates) to Incwala on or before 30 September 2014, and has entered into a commitment to advance a further R242 million on the same interest-free basis, on or before 31 March 2015 (collectively, the "Loans"). The Loans will enable Incwala to meet the covenants and other obligations in relation to existing preference share funding it has raised from local banks. The Loans will be repaid over time by the relevant subsidiary of Lonmin withholding sums that would otherwise be payable to Incwala by way of dividend.

Lonmin announced the restructuring and strengthening of its executive management team which will streamline the business and aid in the execution of the Company's strategy as it rebuilds its operational performance. The changes will see the introduction of a Chief Operating Officer role to oversee both mining and processing divisions, helping better align those areas of the business.



Johan Lesley Viljoen, a seasoned mining engineer and leader, joins Lonmin in this important new role with immediate effect.

The change will better align the functions and help with the creation of a common culture and knowledge sharing across all our operations. Both The Mining and Processing teams have strong and experienced people in place, all of whom will continue with the execution of the ramp up where we are continuing to make good progress. Senior management in both divisions have led outstanding ramp up of the business in recent years.



The new Executive Committee will comprise:

* Chief Executive : Ben Magara

* Chief Financial Officer : Simon Scott

According to Business Report, Lonmin officially gave land to the North West government for the construction of more than 2 600 housing units.

(Official Notice)
Lonmin ("the company") announces the settlement of the negotiations with the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union ("AMCU") about wages and conditions of service. Employees are expected to return to work on Wednesday 25 June.



The three-year agreement, which is effective from 1 October 2013 to 30 June 2016, will end the five- month strike, which has crippled the South African platinum industry.

The key points of the agreement are:

* Overall, the lowest underground basic salary will increase by R1 000 per month for each year;

* Employees in C-band will receive increases of 8% in year 1 and 7.5% for years 2 and 3;

* The living-out allowance will increase from R1 950 to R2 000 per month in year 1 and be kept constant thereafter for the period of the agreement;

* As is normal in backdated agreements, all employees will receive, within 7 working days of their return to work, the back pay due to them from their 2013 increase date until 22 January 2014, the day prior to the start of the strike; and

* Going forward, the company has agreed to alter the anniversary date of its annual wage increases for all non-management employees to 1 July from 1 October in order to align with industry peers.



Lonmin's immediate focus is on a safe and efficient ramp up. The company's priorities for achieving this will be:

* Assessing and improving the health and wellbeing of employees, and undertaking the necessary operational and safety training;

* Ensuring mining areas are safe as conditions may have deteriorated during the lengthy period these have not been in operation;

* Re-building relationships and trust; and

* Assisting employees in stabilising their wellness and financial wellbeing, which includes a return to work assistance programme and addressing high levels of indebtedness that have accrued during the period of the strike.



Although Lonmin pipeline stocks have not been depleted to the same extent as in FY12, some refilling of the production pipeline will need to take place.



Given AMCU's prolonged strike and the continuing low PGM prices, restructuring of our business has become inevitable to ensure sustainability. Restructuring and productivity improvements are essential to curb these cost inflation pressures.



Lonmin will update the market in due course.

Lonmin announced that, following the in principle agreement reached last week with the leadership of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union ("AMCU"), further progress towards a return to work has been made. AMCU will hold a further meeting with its members on 23 June 2014. Lonmin expects to receive feedback from AMCU after the meeting has concluded. A further and more detailed announcement will be made when appropriate.
18-Jun-2014
(Official Notice)
Further to the announcement issued on Thursday, 12th June 2014, Lonmin confirmed that it has received written feedback from Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) president Joseph Mathunjwa. This follows an "in principle" agreement reached between the three platinum producers, Anglo American Platinum Ltd. ("Amplats"), Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd. ("Implats") and Lonmin "the companies" and AMCU leadership last week. AMCU committed to take this agreement to its members at the various mass meetings to receive a mandate from their members to sign an agreement.



The letter received from AMCU confirmed that the union had received a mandate from its members to finalise agreements with the companies that would bring an end to the five-month strike. The letter raises various procedural issues, such as the timeframe of proposed agreements and the logistics around a return to work, which the companies are willing to finalise with the union leadership. Regrettably, however, the letter also contains new and additional demands which, if granted, would mean significant additional costs for Lonmin - in excess of R200 million and well beyond the increases contained in the "in principle" agreements.



The goal remains a sustainable solution beneficial to all stakeholders on the basis of the "in principle" agreement reached with AMCU. Lonmin is currently engaged with AMCU on their feedback in order to achieve a return to work in line with the "in principle" agreement reached. A separate media joint media statement by the producers is available on www.platinumwagenegotiations.co.za

(Official Notice)
Lonmin ("company") announces that informal undertakings have been reached in principle with the leadership of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union ("AMCU") in respect of wages and conditions of employment. AMCU will be discussing these in principle undertakings with its members to seek a mandate.



The same in principle undertakings have been received by our peer PGM producers, Anglo American Platinum Ltd. ("Amplats") and Impala Platinum Holding Ltd. ("Impala"), who will make their own announcements in the normal way.



The principles that underpin the proposals seek to achieve a sustainable future for the three platinum companies for the benefit of all stakeholders and to afford employees the best possible increase under the current financial circumstances.



The companies expect to receive feedback from AMCU on Friday, 13 June. Thereafter, and should an agreement be reached, the companies will be assisting employees to ensure a safe return to a normal working environment.



Further details will be made available once feedback is received from AMCU.

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



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



To date, the producers have forfeited earnings of R21.7 billion, while employees have forfeited wages of around R9.6 billion. On its own behalf, Lonmin would like to express its sincere thanks to the Minister of Mineral Resources for the initiative and the Inter-Governmental Technical Team for the hard work they contributed. Lonmin has throughout attempted to preserve jobs and to prevent a continuation of a situation in which irresponsibility threatens the employment and prosperity of its workforce.

The following statement was released in Johannesburg by Lonmin Plc today, in conjunction with Anglo American Platinum Ltd and Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd:



Platinum producers Anglo American Platinum Ltd (Amplats), Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd (Implats) and Lonmin Plc (Lonmin) advise that facilitated mediation between the companies and the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) are continuing under the auspices of the Labour Court. The producers and AMCU welcomed the initiative of the Labour Court to mediate a resolution of the protracted wage strike in the sector. The parties have fully embraced this process with talks led by Judge Hilary Rabkin Naicker. The process is unfolding and the parties are encouraged that they share a common commitment to endeavour to resolve this dispute.
12-May-2014
(C)
Revenue for the interim period dropped to USD578 million (2013: USD735 million). Loss before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortisation came in at USD62 million (2013: earnings of USD168 million), operating loss widened to USD131 million (2013: profit of USD90 million), while loss attributable to equity shareholders of Lonmin soared to USD202 million (2013: profit of USD66 million). Furthermore, headline loss per share was USD35.5cps (2013: earnings of USD13.3cps).



Dividends

No dividends were declared during the period (6 months to 31 March 2013 and year ended 30 September 2013 - $nil).



Outlook

The protracted wage strike which has been the main feature of the first half of the year, has significantly impacted the Company's profitability. Lonmin's ability to achieve a sustained steady state production is predicated on when operations resume. The company expects unit costs to exceed wage inflation and capital spend to be less than the previously guided USD210 million. Lonmin will update the market on the production, associated unit costs and capital spend outlook once the strike has ended.

On 7 November 2013 Lonmin announced that the Chairman of its board of directors, Roger Phillimore, had indicated his intention to retire from office during 2014. The Company now announces that Roger Phillimore will retire as Chairman of the board and as a director of the Company at the close of business on 30 April 2014. With effect from 1 May 2014, Brian Beamish, an independent non-executive director who joined the board on 1 November 2013, will become Interim Chairman of the board of directors.
05-Mar-2014
(Official Notice)
Further to Lonmin (the company) update on wages announced on 30 January 2014, the company further announces that the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) has suspended the facilitated negotiations between Lonmin, Anglo American Platinum (Amplats), Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd. (Implats) and the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) as the CCMA has deemed the respective parties' current position to be too far apart to warrant further mediation at this stage.



Lonmin, Amplats and Implats have proposed a three year wage agreement on a guaranteed package with increases ranging from 7.5 to 9%, with the lowest paid employees receiving a 9% increase in year one. The overall offer is well above the current South African inflation rate of 5.4% and is more favourable in comparison to increases in other industries. The companies acknowledge that AMCU has moved from its opening demand of R12 500 basic wage, however, AMCU's revised demand yesterday evening (Tuesday 4 March, 2014), of a basic wage of R12,500 over four years still represents an increase of 30% in year one. This is unaffordable.



Strike action has caused activity at Lonmin's mining and processing divisions to be minimal. As of today Lonmin has lost around 90 000 saleable Platinum ounces. Consequently, Lonmin announces that it will not achieve its sales guidance of in excess of 750 000 Platinum ounces and now expects sales for the full year ending 30 September 2014 to fall further the longer the protected strike continues. The unit cost guidance will as a result also be negatively impacted. Until the strike has ended, Lonmin is unable to provide specific detail on these changes.



Lonmin wishes to thank the government of the Republic of South Africa, the CCMA, as well as our fellow producers and other stakeholders for their continuing commitment to finding a sustainable resolution.

Lonmin remains open to resolution of the impasse with AMCU.



A further announcement on the development of the strike, and the consequential impact on production, capital expenditure and operations, will be made as and when appropriate.

Revenue for the year ended 30 September 2013 fell to USD1.5 billion (2012: USD1.6 billion). EBITDA soared to USD304 million (2012: USD24 million), operating profit turned around to USD147 million (2012: loss of USD702 million), while profit attributable to equity shareholders of Lonmin Plc came in at USD166 million (2012: loss of USD410 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share was USD32.1cps (2012: 0.0cps).



Dividend

A dividend is not proposed for the current financial year. However, Lonmin has confidence in the future demand for PGMs and our expectation is for prices to firm in the future. Lonmin's Renewal Plan anticipates positive free cash flow from the 2014 financial year onwards. The return to stronger earnings and cash flows will permit the resumption of dividends. When Lonmin does resume the payment of dividends, they would intend to follow the existing policy of declaring an ordinary final dividend at a rate which the Board expects can at least be maintained in subsequent years.



Outlook

Given the prevailing labour landscape combined with an uncertain market outlook, we are maintaining sales guidance in excess of 750 000 Platinum ounces with capital spend estimate set at USD210 million, in line with our Renewal Plan. Unit cost of production is guided to be less than wage inflation.

Lonmin would like to update the market, further to our regulatory release of 8 July 2013, on a court case which concluded in South Africa today involving issues around union recognition. The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) applied to the labour court to suspend the 90 day notice period for the derecognition of NUM as the largest union at Lonmin. Giving judgment this morning, the judge dismissed NUM's case, struck the matter off the roll and awarded costs against the union.



This conclusion allows the present timetable around recognition, as well as the ongoing arbitration procedure the Company is involved in with AMCU, to continue unchanged. As previously announced, the recognition agreement between the NUM and Lonmin will expire on 16 July 2013, whilst the arbitration proceedings with AMCU are still scheduled for 29 July 2013. Lonmin remains wholly committed to finding a sustainable solution to the issue of union recognition which is fair and equitable and with which all stakeholders can agree. It also believes that employees have the right to be represented by the union of their choice. The company will update the market further when appropriate.

(Official Notice)
Lonmin ("the company") would like to update the market on developments relating to union recognition and wider industrial relations at its Marikana operations.



A court application has been brought by the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM), one of the unions representing Lonmin employees, and has been set down for 10 July 2013.



Whilst Lonmin cannot comment in detail, the case relates to membership numbers for both NUM and the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU).



In preparation for this case Lonmin filed documents to the court, elements of which became public in South Africa yesterday (July 7, 2013). Clearly this case is sub judice, consequently arguments may not be made publicly prior to being put before the court.



However, the company's wider position remains that it wishes the issue of union status at its operations to be resolved peacefully, and as quickly as possible, for the benefit of all stakeholders. Lonmin further believes that all employees have the right to be represented by the union of their choice.



In this matter Lonmin remains committed to the framework agreement brokered by the Deputy President of The Republic of South Africa, which provides for amicable solutions to enhance a sustainable mining industry in South Africa.

(Official Notice)
Lonmin agreed on Wednesday 26 June 2013 to postpone scheduled arbitration with the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) over the ongoing union recognition dispute at AMCU's request. The Company agreed to an AMCU request to delay the talks in order to allow the process of engagement, led by The Deputy President of The Republic of South Africa (which involves business, government and labour), to take its course. Lonmin welcomes and supports this initiative. At this morning?s meeting, the presiding Commissioner joined the National Union of Mineworkers, United Association of South Africa and Solidarity as interested parties to the arbitration proceedings, which will re-commence on 29 July 2013, again under the auspices of The Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA).



Lonmin remains fully committed to concluding a new union recognition agreement with AMCU as the majority union. The company is striving to reach an agreement which is in the best interests of all of its employees and has made reasonable offers in discussions with AMCU in an attempt to achieve this. Lonmin believes that an agreement can be reached through continued negotiations. Full details on Lonmin's labour relations position are available on a fact sheet on the company's website. Lonmin will update the market again when appropriate.

(Official Notice)
Lonmin announced a further update on issues relating to union recognition and labour relations at its Marikana operations. In a regulatory announcement on 17 May 2013, the company announced that it was expediting procedures for the removal of majority union privileges from the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM), which is now a minority union at Marikana. These privileges come with majority union status which is now held at Lonmin by the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) with approximately 70% representation.



The company has been involved in lengthy discussions with AMCU aimed at concluding a new recognition agreement which, whilst recognising the union's majority status and the rights which go with that, also provided the optimal platform for all stakeholders to ensure a reduction of tensions on the ground and the building of a long-term peace. Lonmin also announced on 23 May 2013 that it had asked that the dispute with AMCU, in respect of the failure to conclude a new recognition agreement, be referred to arbitration. The Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration has scheduled the arbitration for 26 June 2013. The NUM issued a legal challenge concerning the timing of the notice period Lonmin is required to give for the removal of majority union privileges.



The Johannesburg Labour Court on 28 May 2013 ordered that the notice period in terms of the recognition agreement between the NUM and Lonmin will expire on 16 July 2013 if by that date the NUM is unable to prove that it is sufficiently representative in terms of the current recognition agreement. During the notice period the NUM is entitled to access its current offices and transport facilities. Lonmin had chosen to expedite the process in the interests of furthering peace and security on the ground. The Company was cognisant of the request on 15 May 2013 by the Cabinet of the Government of the Republic of South Africa which called on unions and Lonmin management to do all they could to resolve the recognition dispute peacefully.



Lonmin urges all parties to heed the advice of the Cabinet and to work to ensure that court ruling is implemented without risk of further unrest at Marikana. This is an ongoing process and the company will update the market further when appropriate.
23-May-2013
(Official Notice)
Lonmin ("the company") announced that no resolution was reached in further negotiations with the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) in ongoing attempts to conclude a new recognition agreement.



The meeting, conducted under the auspices of the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA), was a final attempt by the parties to resolve the dispute before commencing the arbitration process.



Lonmin has referred the matter for arbitration. This means that both parties will present their respective views to the arbitrator who will then make a ruling which will be binding on both Lonmin and AMCU. This is part of the dispute resolution process provided for by the Labour Relations Act. There is no set timeframe to conclude this process but it is reasonably expected that it should take approximately four to six weeks to complete the arbitration process.



Lonmin has presented a recognition agreement that it believes to be in the best interests of all stakeholders, while at the same time according the same rights and privileges enjoyed by the previous majority union to AMCU.



The company will update the market further when appropriate.

Lonmin further welcomes the statement issued by the South African Cabinet on Thursday 16 May in which it appealed to the leadership of both the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and The Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) to: "resolve their dispute amicably and put the interests of the country and workers above everything else. Workers must be aware that the unprotected strike could have serious consequences not only for themselves, but for the future of the mine and that of their jobs."



Lonmin has also heeded the Cabinet's appeal to do everything possible to make sure that issues are resolved as soon as possible without further unrest. On Wednesday afternoon, 15 May 2013, Lonmin secured a court interdict in its favour ordering striking employees to return to work and subsequently informed staff and unions of this development. This was an unprotected work stoppage and the principle of no work no pay was applied.



However, the Company has considered the situation in totality, and in particular, the risk that recent events may escalate and compromise the safety of our employees, property and community members. Lonmin had already begun the process of de-recognising NUM in respect of category 4 to 9 bargaining unit following the significant changes in union membership at its operations. We can confirm that some aspects of this process will be accelerated in order to ease tensions on the ground at Marikana.



Lonmin can also confirm that it met with AMCU and the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) with a view to concluding a new recognition agreement with AMCU, which now represents 70% of Lonmin Category 4-9 employees and the discussions are continuing.

Further to the announcement made on 14th May 2013, Lonmin (the "company") welcomes an overnight return to work by employees engaged in an unprotected strike action which began on Tuesday morning.



Initial estimates are that 82% of workers reported for the night shift yesterday and more than 90% for the morning shift today.

The situation on the ground remains delicate, however, and discussions on workers' demands continue with unions and other stakeholders.



The company will update the market as soon as it has further clarity.

No dividends were declared during the period.



Outlook for the year

Lonmin has delivered a solid performance in this period, exceeding the targets under their Renewal Plan and this positions them well for the remainder of the year. However, wage negotiations will commence in the middle of the calendar year (the existing agreement expires at the end of September 2013) and Lonmin anticipate significant challenge in this process as they seek to manage their relationships with the unions that represent their employees. The company plans to continue building operational momentum in the second half of the financial year and, absent any abnormal disruptions associated with Section 54 stoppages and labour disruptions, Lonmin is increasing its guidance of Platinum metals in concentrate production from 680 000 ounces to in excess of 700 000 ounces. In view of the constraints around smelting capacity during Quarter Three resulting from the Number Two furnace incident, Lonmin is maintaining their sales guidance of 660 000 saleable Platinum ounces. This implies a stock build up in the second half of the financial year, which they will address in the most commercially advantageous manner. The company will continue to manage costs in the second half of the year such that the corresponding unit cost increase per PGM ounce produced for the year is now expected to reduce from the previous guidance of a 10% increase to below 8%.

(Official Notice)
Lonmin announced developments in the ongoing negotiations of a new union recognition agreement with stakeholders. The Company's union membership profile has changed significantly over the last 12 months with the Association of Mining and Construction Union (AMCU), now the largest union, representing 70% of Lonmin Category 4-9 employees. The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM), formerly the majority union, now represents approximately 20% of the Category 4-9 employees. This change has resulted in the need to negotiate a new recognition agreement with workers' representatives.



Lonmin currently have a limited organisational rights agreement with AMCU, which is valid until a new recognition agreement is finalised. Negotiations on the recognition agreement commenced in January. Lonmin have focused on finding a way to work together towards a new recognition agreement which is inclusive and fair. Accordingly, Lonmin proposed a democratic, multi-union framework that is responsive to the needs of all workers and their representatives. Following a meeting earlier this week with AMCU, where no progress was made towards reaching an agreement, Lonmin have been notified that AMCU have referred the matter to the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA). Lonmin welcomes this development. A process facilitated by the CCMA presents an opportunity to reach agreement.

Lonmin announced that it has experienced an incident at its Number Two furnace, which has resulted in the furnace being shut down. No one was injured. The incident has happened at a time when Lonmin had just shut down the Number One furnace for its planned upgrade of the hearth and shell.



The initial estimate is that a full repair to the Number Two furnace will take 30-40 days. A full inspection will be conducted once the furnace has cooled down later this week. The Three Pyromet furnaces, which have around 50% of our capacity requirements, continue to operate. In the meantime, we will be assessing the options around Number One and the impact of Number Two and we will update the market in due course. In addition, following the fatality at the Merensky section of the K3 shaft last week, drilling and blasting operations at K3 have been suspended until the investigation, which is being undertaken in partnership with all stakeholders, is complete.

(Official Notice)
Lonmin today announced that it has made significant progress in its review of the company's operating model and management structure. The company is now in consultation with its unions (AMCU, NUM, Solidarity, and UASA) and employees on a proposed new operating structure.



The review of the operating model forms part of the Lonmin Renewal Plan which was announced at the end of October 2012 and has been undertaken as part of a strategy aimed at achieving a sustainable business in an environment characterised by weak global market conditions and high input costs.



The "ramp-up" element of the Renewal Plan delivered excellent results in the first Quarter, as announced on 31 January 2013, and is progressing ahead of schedule.



Approximately 150 positions are likely to be affected initially, all of which are expected to be in the management levels.



All parties are mindful of the need to preserve jobs wherever possible and manage the process with sensitivity. In view of this the company is engaging with its affected unionised employees through their registered trade unions as well as with non-unionised employees as required by South African Labour legislation to consult on ways to minimise the impact of the restructuring and redundancies that may flow from it.



The company also proposes to engage the services of experts in the relevant fields to assist affected employees by providing counselling, and financial planning advice and access to employment advisors.



Lonmin currently employs approximately 28 000 employees.

Production performance in the quarter has substantially exceeded planned ramp up to produce Platinum in concentrate of 174 253 saleable ounces and Platinum sales of 185 497 saleable ounces. This demonstrates the successful execution of the operational plans Lonmin put in place for the safe re-start and ramping up of production following the labour unrest that preceded the period. The protocols developed for safe sustainable start up have not only been commended by regulatory authorities as being best practice but have been adopted and rolled out by peers. Total tonnes mined were 2.9 million tonnes, similar to the prior year period. In addition Lonmin's exemplary safety performance throughout the production ramp up delivered an improved Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) for the quarter of 3.74 incidents per million man hours worked compared to 4.16 for Q4 2012 and 4.67 for Q1 2012. The Process Division had a LTI free first quarter for the first time in five years.

Revenue declined to USD1.6 billion (USD2 billion). EBITDA decreased to USD24 million (USD431 million). An operating loss of USD702 million (profit of USD307 million) was made. A net attributable loss of USD410 million (profit of USD273 million) was recorded. In addition, headline earnings fell to USD0.00cps (USD135.8cps).



Outlook

Sales of platinum is forecast to be around 660 000 ounces for the 2013 financial year, significantly impacted by the events at Marikana which have resulted in lower capital spend, the suspension of mining at K4 and the time it takes to ramp up the operation back to previous levels of productivity.



Metal prices have shown some recovery as recent industrial unrest across the industry has in a short space of time altered the outlook for the supply side of the PGM industry. Lonmin is extremely well positioned to benefit from a strong pricing environment when it comes thanks to the quality of our ore body, our un-utilised shaft capacity, our immediately available ore reserves, and the capacity and quality of the processing division.

(Official Notice)
Further to the announcements made on 13 January 2012 and 11 August 2010, Lonmin Plc ("Lonmin") announced that it and the Department of Mineral Resources have today, 11 October 2012, executed a notarial amendment of one of its existing mining rights on Middelkraal in respect of a small portion of its mining area, such that this now explicitly permits Lonmin to exploit and dispose of the associated minerals necessarily extracted as part of its core business of mining platinum group metals ("PGMs").



This confirms that Lonmin now holds new order mining rights for PGMs and associated minerals for wholly owned assets across its entire primary mining area at Marikana, in the North-West Province of South Africa, which accounts for substantially all of its current production. Lonmin is therefore entitled to retain the full economic benefit of all associated minerals extracted from the Middelkraal area.



To enable this amendment to be granted, Keysha Investments 220 (Pty) Ltd ("Keysha") has abandoned the prospecting right for associated minerals and metals that was granted to it over this part of Lonmin?s mining area and has irrevocably withdrawn an application for a mining right made over the same area.



Lonmin has agreed to compensate Holgoun Investment Holdings (Pty) Ltd., Keysha's parent company, for relinquishing the disputed prospecting right and its costs including those incurred in carrying out prospecting activities over the area, with an amount of approximately USD4.0 million.

16-Aug-2012
(Official Notice)
Lonmin announced that the situation at its Marikana mines has remained relatively quiet since the morning of Wednesday 15 August but matters remain tense, following the deeply regrettable violence which began on Friday 10 August and which has claimed the lives of eight Lonmin workers and two policemen in a dispute between rival unions.



Lonmin welcomed the increased presence of the South African Police Services (''SAPS'') at the site of the mine, and is cooperating fully with the authorities to help restore a safe and secure environment for its employees as quickly as possible.



The striking Rock Drill Operators (''RDOs'') remain armed and away from work. This is illegal under the Labour Relations Act. Consequently, and in keeping with the terms of a Court Order granted to Lonmin on 11 August 2012, the illegal strikers have today (Thursday 16 August) been issued with a final ultimatum to return to work by their next shift on Friday 17 August or face dismissal.



In the meantime, shafts remain operational in readiness for production to commence when employees return to work.



Production Impact

As a result of the disruption, Lonmin has so far lost six days of mined production, representing approximately 300,000 tonnes of ore, or 15,000 platinum equivalent ounces. Consequently, it is unlikely that Lonmin will meet its full year guidance of 750,000 saleable ounces of Platinum, although the extent of the variation from guidance will depend on the timing and speed with which normal operations can safely resume. Unit costs will be negatively impacted as well and as a result we expect the guidance of an 8.5% increase in unit costs for the full year to be exceeded. Further guidance will be given in due course.



Capital and Liquidity

In its third quarter production report published on July 26, 2012, Lonmin stated that net debt remains well within the limits and terms of its existing bank debt facilities. The company continues to monitor the position closely regarding the additional pressure which the current disruption to production may put on its bank debt covenants when they are next tested on 30 September.
14-Aug-2012
(Official Notice)
Lonmin announced a serious and ongoing outbreak of violence at its West Marikana mine operations in South Africa. Seven Lonmin workers and two policemen have been killed in a dispute between rival unions.



Production has been severely disrupted since Friday 10 August as a result of an illegal strike by Rock Drill Operators and increased incidences of violence and intimidation since then. Lonmin will make further announcements as matters develop and as the impact on production and operations becomes clearer.



Announcements relating to the situation can be found on Lonmin's website at http://www.lonmin.com
26-Jul-2012
(Official Notice)
Lonmin announced its production results for the three and nine months to 30 June 2012 and interim management statement.



Overview

Operational performance in the quarter under review improved against the prior year period. The record safety performance was negatively impacted by a fatal incident at the Rowland shaft in which Thobisani Didi lost his life on 22 June.



Outlook and guidance

The momentum in underground mining combined with good concentrator recoveries gives Lonmin confidence to maintain their full year sales guidance of 750 000 Platinum ounces for the current year, absent any material safety or industrial relations stoppages. Lonmin's anticipate the increase in unit costs to be contained at 8.5%, in line with the wage increases as previously guided.
09-Jul-2012
(Media Comment)
According to Business Report, Lonmin has improved productivity levels upon returning to conventional mining methods. When Ian Farmer took on the position of chief executive in 2008, he elected to replace mechanised mining with convetional labour intensive mining methods in a bid to improve productivity as mechanisation had been unsuccessful in yielding returns. Lonmin's executive vice-president of mining, Mark Munroe, was quoted saying relying on mechanisation meant it took longer for mines to reach their optimum production levels whereas conventional methods cut this time significantly.
06-Jul-2012
(Media Comment)
Business Day reported that Lonmin would decide in the coming months how to pursue a growth strategy. The growth strategy could cost up to USD900 million from 2012/13 - 2013/14 in an oversupplied market that has forced its competitors to suspend or alter their mines. Lonmin has a USD450 million 2012 capital budget to develop new mines that will allow its Marikana Mine to reach production of 950 000oz of platinum group metals from 2015. The group is reviewing all its options and will inform the market of its decision when it releases its September 2012 full-year results or before it announces them.
25-Jun-2012
(Official Notice)
It is with regret that Lonmin announced that an employee lost his life in an incident at the company's Rowland shaft on Friday 22 June 2012. The family of the deceased has been informed.

The shaft will remain closed until that investigation, which is being undertaken in partnership with all stakeholders, is complete.

Revenue for the interim results period ended 31 March 2012 fell to USD751 million (2012: USD938 million). EBITDA dropped to USD75 million (2012: USD206 million), operating profit declined to USD14 million (2012: USD144 million), while a loss attributable to equity shareholders of Lonmin was recorded at USD24 million (2012: profit of USD90 million). Furthermore, headline loss per share plummeted to USD8.9cps (2012: earnings of USD45.5cps).

(C)
Revenue for the year ended 30 September 2011 increased to USD1.992 billion (2010: USD1.585 billion). EBITDA rose to USD431 million (2010: USD337 million), operating profit jumped to USD307 million (2010: USD203 million), while profit attributable to equity shareholders of Lonmin surged to USD273 million (2010: USD112 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share was higher at USD135.8cps (2010: USD62cps).



Dividend

Consistent with the dividend policy established a year ago, and recognising the considerable cash commitment inherent in our capital investment programme, the board is recommending a final dividend of USD15cps be declared, unchanged from 2010.



Outlook

Lonmin is cautious in the short term as global uncertainties continue to play out, but they remain confident that industrial fundamentals will begin to reassert themselves in the medium term. Both automobile and jewellery end users are holding up remarkably well in the face of gathering recession predictions. In the longer term the return of less dysfunctional markets, the resumption of growth and the unique environmentally important properties of these rare PGM metals, increasingly in new uses such as fuel cells, will underpin higher demand levels. It is the board's view that additional supply will be required to meet these higher needs and moreover that the investment in new capacity, across the industry, will only be justified by higher Rand prices. Consequently, Lonmin's strategy is to continue to invest in capacity building, whilst retaining the flexibility to moderate the rate of capacity expansion consistent with markets and balance sheet prudence. Lonmin is well placed in this as production from the Marikana resource can be considerably expanded before a major new shaft system is required.

According to Business Report, Lonmin the world's largest platinum producer, last week gave in to community demands and committed to providing more than 600 jobs for the Bapo Ba Mogale community that lives near its Marikana operations in Bapong in the North West. After last week's heated meeting with community leadership, Lonmin chief executive Ian Farmer told journalists the company would appoint residents to fill 259 vacant posts and another 384 jobs would be created in the near future./ This follows the community taking to the streets to demand that the company should employ at least 2 500 residents living next to the company's mine.

Lonmin announced that it has reorganised its bank debt facilities and replaced the existing USD875 million bank debt facilities with new facilities totalling approximately USD1 billion. The new facilities extend the maturity profile of Lonmin's debt, with USD850 million of the new facilities being committed for five years. The new facilities consist of a USD700 million syndicated US dollar facility and three South African rand bilateral facilities of R660 million each.



The USD700 million syndicated facility is comprised of a USD300 million five-year term facility and a five-year committed USD400 million revolving credit facility. The facility will be used to support the longer term capital requirements of the group. The new facility consolidates all of Lonmin's US dollar debt within Lonmin and improves the pricing, credit margins and covenants. In addition, Lonmin has entered into a floating to fixed interest rate swap on the term component of the debt. This fixes the base rate in respect of USD300 million of the facility for the next five years. The facility has been supported by BNP Paribas S.A., Citigroup Global Markets Limited, HSBC Bank Plc, J.P. Morgan Limited, Lloyds TSB Bank Plc, The Royal Bank of Scotland N.V. and Standard Chartered Bank.



The three R660 million bilateral facilities are at the Western Platinum Ltd level, the operating company and will be used for day-to-day working capital requirements. The facilities are of a revolving credit nature and in total consist of R990 million in five year committed facilities and R990 million in one year committed facilities that can be rolled annually. The new facilities improve the pricing, credit margins and covenants in respect of the Rand bank debt. The facilities have been supported by FirstRand National Bank, Investec Bank Ltd and The Standard Bank of South Africa Ltd.

Further to the announcement made on 24 May 2011, Lonmin advises that, following the dismissal of workers engaged in unprotected illegal industrial action at its Karee operations, it has largely completed the process of recruitment and production at Karee has resumed and is ramping up. The unprotected industrial action at Karee followed a period of poor safety in March and April, which had resulted in lost production in these months. The Company had expected to recapture this lost production during the second half of the 2011 financial year. A large portion of this catch up would have come from Karee.



Management has now completed an assessment of the impact on production of the industrial action taking into account the disruptive effect the action had on the business as a whole and the need to restore normal operations while being cognisant of the heightened safety risk associated with the restart. Management has concluded that full year sales guidance will be negatively impacted by around 30 000 Platinum ounces. Consequently, Lonmin is reducing its full year guidance for the year ended 30 September 2011 to sales of around 720 000 Platinum ounces. Unit costs will be negatively impacted due to the lower production, and the guidance of an 8% increase in unit costs for the full year will be exceeded. Further guidance on unit cost will be given with the Q3 production report.

Business Day reported that Lonmin may not reach its production target of 750 000oz of platinum in the year to September 2011 by about 2% if a strike at its Karee mine does not end soon. This was according to RBC Capital Markets analyst, Leon Oosthuizen.

(Official Notice)
Lonmin Plc announces that it has started the process of dismissing those employees who have been participating in the unprotected industrial action at its Karee operations since Tuesday 17th May 2011. This is in line with the interdict that was granted by the South African Courts to Lonmin on Friday 20th May 2011. This unprotected industrial action has arisen as a result of a dispute between the National Union of Mineworker's ("NUM") Rustenberg regional office and the leadership of the local Karee branch of the NUM. Lonmin's Karee operations employee around 9,000 people and produce around 17,000 tonnes per day. Once the process of dismissal is complete, Lonmin will commence a recruitment programme. A further update will be provided in due course.

According to Business Day, Lonmin, the world's largest platinum miner, said on Friday that production at its Karee mine, at its Marikana operations was disrupted by an internal leadership struggle within the local branch of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM)> Production has been disrupted since the Tuesday night shift at Karee, the biggest underground mine at Marikana, producing 1.1 million tons in the March quarter. Lonmin was granted a court interdict ordering all employees back to work immediately.? Failure to comply with this interdict may results in disciplinary action been taken,: it said. The NUM sent a high-powered regional delegation to Marikana to talk to workers and explain what was going on, said spokesman Lesiba Seshoka. "They should return to work by Monday, if not sooner," he said

(Media Comment)
Business Day reported that Lonmin plans to grow production by 200 000 ounces in the next four years at a cost of USD2 billion, creating 2000 jobs. Lonmin expects a deficit in platinum supply between next year and 2014, with mine supply battling to keep pace with demand growth. It increased its production forecast from the 850 000oz set for 2013 by an extra 100 000oz two years later.

(C)
Revenue for the interim period ended March 2011 improved to USD938 million (USD661 million) and operating profit rose significantly to USD144 million (USD65 million). Profit attributable to ordinary equity holders jumped to USD90 million (USD30 million), while headline earnings per share increased to USD45.5cps (USD15.5cps).



Dividend

No interim dividend has been declared.



Outlook

Lonmin believes that under investment, rising costs and challenging geology have meant significant lead time delays for new projects, which will exacerbate the supply deficit in the medium term. It is estimated that in 2012 the industry's production will still be over half a million ounces down on 2006 levels. Nearly all brownfield and greenfield projects need higher prices than today's levels to bring on new projects especially given the Rand strength. Current calculations at a Rand/Dollar exchange rate of R6.91 indicate an incentive price on a weighted average of at least USD2 185 per platinum ounce, although some new generation deep shafts could require even higher prices to take account of the significant capex inflation over the last few years. The company's view of the platinum market has not changed significantly from last year. The events in Japan may provide a boost to metal demand and prices once rebuilding commences. The company believes that the global economic recovery whilst somewhat fragile, remains on track and it expects small market deficits for both platinum and palladium as industrial and auto demand recovers and new demand from off-road emission legislation begins to come through. The company expects growing market deficits in the 2012 to 2014 period. While an upside surprise on the demand side appears remote, supply still has the ability to surprise on the downside, given the numerous constraints. This may lead to a tighter market and higher prices. Overall the view is that the long term market fundamentals remain positive.

Further to its announcement dated 5 August, Lonmin Plc ("Lonmin") announce that it has received confirmation in writing from the Department of Mineral Resources of the Government of South Africa ("DMR") which rescinds with immediate effect its instruction, dated 3 August, requiring Lonmin to refrain from selling Nickel, Copper, Chrome and any other minerals ('associated minerals') other than Platinum Group Metals. The company will notify its customers that deliveries of associated minerals will recommence immediately.



The DMR has further confirmed that all of Lonmin`s Section 102 applications have been approved, thereby clarifying Lonmin`s right to mine and dispose of associated minerals at all its properties other than the small area which is subject to the prospecting right issued to Keysha Investments 220 (Pty) Ltd ("Keysha"), a Holgoun group company. Lonmin would like to thank the DMR for its cooperation in expediting the approval of these Section 102 applications.



The disputed prospecting right granted to Keysha covers a small area of Lonmin property where only UG2 is currently mined. Sales of associated minerals from this area amounted to approximately USD11 million in 2009. Lonmin appealed against both the acceptance of the application in March 2009 and against the award of the right in June 2010. Lonmin remains entitled to mine and dispose of the associated minerals mined from this area.

(Official Notice)
Late on 4 August 2010, Lonmin plc ("Lonmin" or "the Company") received a letter from the Department of Mineral Resources of the Government of South Africa ("DMR") which contained an order to refrain from selling Nickel, Copper, Chrome and any other minerals ("associated minerals") other than Platinum Group Metals ("PGMs") with immediate effect, notwithstanding the natural occurrence of these minerals in the PGM reefs and seams. Lonmin will contest this matter vigorously and will be seeking an urgent court ruling to overturn this order. Lonmin has mined PGMs and associated minerals at Western Platinum Limited and Eastern Platinum Limited for in excess of 30 years. Associated minerals are inextricably linked to PGMs in the ore body and it is not feasible nor economically viable to mine them alone. These minerals contributed US$80 million to Lonmin's turnover in the 2009 financial year. The previous legal framework gave miners the right to dispose of associated minerals for their own benefit, while the 2002 Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act ("MPRDA"), under which Lonmin converted its mining rights in October 2006, is silent on this matter. Whilst Lonmin believes it is entitled to mine and dispose of associated minerals, in order to protect its position, it filed MPRDA Section 102 applications which would explicitly give Lonmin these rights. This was done in late 2009.

Prospects

Despite recent mine resumption and expansion announcements, the group's view of the PGM market outlook remains unchanged. Demand is increasing more rapidly than anticipated while the depressed Rand PGM basket price in late 2008 and 2009 squeezed industry profitability and cash flow, with short term under-investment being the consequence. The group therefore anticipate that supply will struggle to keep up with recovering demand from this year onwards.



For 2010, the group expects investment demand to remain strong, with industrial demand gradually improving, leaving the market close to balance. In 2011 and 2012, the group expects to see a more significant upturn in industrial demand, and a slower supply response, thereby shifting the market into deficit. In the longer term, the group anticipates that future PGM demand opportunities will arise from on-going tightening of emissions legislation, particularly for off- road vehicles and from stationary fuel cell technology. As a result of all of these factors, PGM markets are structurally compelling and the long term fundamentals attractive.

Lonmin Plc, the world's third largest PGM producer, announces its production results for the three months to 31 March 2010.



Our core underground Marikana mining operations produced 2.6 million tonnes during the second quarter of the 2010 financial year, essentially in line with the same period last year, whilst tonnes milled from these operations were also flat with the prior year period at 2.5 million tonnes. Conventional operations at the property produced 2.1 million tonnes during the period, a decline of 0.1 million tonnes from the prior year period, mainly due to the planned closure of two decline shafts in 2009. Production from K3 shaft during the period was in line with the second quarter of 2009, however, the shaft suffered from significant Section 54 safety stoppages during the period. The impact of Section 54 safety stoppages across the Marikana property during the quarter was around 65,000 lost tonnes, which is better than the impact in the prior year period of 122,000 lost tonnes. Production at Saffy and Hossy shafts continued to ramp up during the second quarter of 2010, increasing by 41% over the prior year period. As highlighted in November 2009, we re-commenced production at a Merensky opencast pit at Marikana at the end of the period. Pandora underground production increased by 6% during the second quarter of 2010 from the prior year period.



Lonmin Plc also publishes in a separate announcement, its interim results for the half year ending 31 March 2010.

In order to mitigate the impact on production two Pyromet furnaces have already been started up, with a third one starting in early April. These furnaces have around 40% of the capacity of the Number One furnace. A full inspection of the furnace is being conducted during which time we will investigate the cause of this incident. This incident will have no impact on Lonmin's half year results which close on 31 March 2010. Changes, if any, to the full year sales guidance will be given once the repair programme has been confirmed.

Under the terms of the contracts, the Xstrata-Merafe Chrome Venture and ChromTech will purchase the Chromite concentrate produced from the CRP's, which are expected to be in full production by the second half of Lonmin's 2011 financial year.



The duration of the contract with ChromTech is approximately five years and they are expected to treat approximately 0.3 million tonnes of Chromite concentrate contained in the tailings feed per annum. The duration of the contract with the Xstrata-Merafe Chrome Venture is based on total volume treated, rather than a fixed time period, and is expected to treat approximately 1.5 million tonnes of Chromite concentrate contained in the tailings feed per annum. In addition, Lonmin has commenced an initial design study relating to the construction of PGM recovery plants to recover PGM's from the UG2 tailings, following the removal of the Chrome. This process is expected to improve overall concentrator recoveries.

Lonmin's performance in the first quarter of 2010 exemplified management's focus on operational stability and delivering on its commitments, with metals in concentrate production from our underground operations at Marikana being equivalent to the prior year period. Tonnes mined from Marikana underground operations fell slightly, partly as a result of the planned closure of uneconomic production units in 2009. However, this volume reduction was compensated for by improvements in grade and concentrator recoveries during the period and was achieved with a significantly reduced workforce. Following its successful re-build during October, the Number One furnace performed well. Production performance during the first quarter of 2010 represents a solid start to the year and supports our 2010 sales guidance of 700,000 ounces of platinum, as published on 16 November 2009. The cost guidance for the increase in South African Rand gross operating costs to be below local inflation, still stands despite the above inflation wage increases agreed. We therefore reiterate our sales and cost guidance for the year.

Dividend

Outlook

Lonmin needs to be well prepared for the opportunity presented by the prospect of an improvement in the market environment. As such, the focus in 2010 and beyond is on completing the restoration of the operational health of the business, growing our unit throughput and, through this, improving our position on the cost curve. In the longer term, the future of PGM market fundamentals remains strong, primarily as a result of the unique characteristics of PGMs and their applications in autocatalysts. This is underpinned by the various emissions legislation being introduced in the coming years to combat global climate change. In addition, PGMs are expected to be critical in the application of fuel cell technology, which continues to advance in a number of sectors, including a growing number of commercial applications for stationary fuel cells. The platinum market, in particular, is also expected to be supported by continuing demand from the Asian jewellery market. As a result of these factors, it is believe that the platinum and other PGM markets continue to be structurally compelling over time.

(Official Notice)
Lonmin announced its production report for the three months and twelve months to 30 September 2009 (unaudited) and provides an outlook statement for the 2010 financial year.

Lonmin delivered a satisfactory production performance in 2009. The year was not without its challenges, including the disruptive effect of the restructuring programme largely completed in March, the increasing prevalence and severity of Section 54 safety stoppages throughout the year, particularly at our two largest shafts, and an unplanned outage at the Number One furnace in June. Despite these challenges, underground production at Marikana was in line with 2008 levels and we achieved our revised 2009 sales guidance by selling 682 955 ounces of platinum.



Outlook for 2010

South African PGM producers are likely to face continued industry-related challenges in 2010 and the decision announced to move the operational headquarters from London to Johannesburg reflects determination to drive operational performance more effectively than can be done from London. Section 54 safety stoppages will not stop but need to reduce the impact on operational and financial performance. South African mining inflation remains relatively high, putting pressure on industry margins and capital investment, and the labour environment remains challenging. Recent improvements in US dollar-based PGM pricing have been offset by South African rand strength and cash flow management remains a high priority in the industry. Against this background however we expect that Marikana mining production will grow in 2010, more than offsetting the reduction in opencast tonnes and ounces from Pandora, as these pits are now closed. This should allow metals in concentrate production to increase by around 5% and, as a result, we expect to achieve 2010 sales of around 700 000 platinum ounces, slightly ahead of 2009.



Change in quarterly production reporting

In the 2010 financial year, second and fourth quarter production reports will be incorporated into half year and full year results announcements, respectively, as this is felt to be a more efficient way of communicating with the market.
22 Oct 2009 09:44:33

Lonmin intends to relocate its operational headquarters from London to Johannesburg. This change is designed to place the executive management team in a single location close to its mining operations and to enhance day-to-day management and communications. It will also enable the company to engage more effectively with its South African stakeholders.



As the first phase of this process the company's CEO, Ian Farmer, will be based in Johannesburg from 1 January 2010 and will spend the significant majority of his time in South Africa from that point onwards. The company's CFO, Alan Ferguson, has confirmed that he will not relocate to South Africa as part of this reorganisation and will therefore relinquish his position and resign from the board at a future date. Mr. Ferguson has committed to remain in his present role and continue as a board director until 31 December 2010 at the earliest.



The board of Lonmin will remain based in the UK. To support the board and the primary listing of the company's shares on the London Stock Exchange a small office will be retained in London.

Business Day reported that both Lonmin and Xstrata have declined to comment on growing market speculation that the latter was about to put forward a new takeover offer for the platinum miner. Lonmin's shares jumped 6.45% on the JSE, valuing the company at about R42 billion. UK media reports suggest that Xstrata CE Mick Davis has instructed advisors Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan to investigate a potential takeover of Lonmin. This development could mean that Xstrata is finished with its attempt to pursue a merger with Anglo American plc.

(Official Notice)
This production report reflects management's recent actions in eliminating non- contributing ounces and reducing costs. The third quarter of the 2009 financial year has borne the brunt of these actions, despite the restructuring measures implemented, underground production for the first nine months of the 2009 financial year exceeded that of 2008, with gross operating costs also trending in a positive direction. Challenges remain to be navigated, particularly in our smelting operations which will be a determining factor in achieving our Platinum sales guidance for the 2009 financial year. Total tonnes mined for the third quarter of the 2009 financial year were 2.4 million, a decline of 0.8 million from the third quarter of 2008. Of this reduction, 0.4 million tonnes related to the planned closure of our Marikana opencast operations and 0.1 million tonnes were due to the placing of our Baobab shaft at Limpopo on to a care and maintenance basis.



As a result of actions taken during the year, progress was made at our Mining business, however it continues to face a number of challenges. In particular the frequency of industry-wide safety-related Section 54 mine closures remains a significant risk factor in the production of Platinum group Metals. Despite these factors, we still expect to achieve sales for the 2009 financial year of between 680 000 and 700 000 ounces of Platinum. This result is dependent on the selling of metal-in-process inventory and on how the number one furnace performs during the fourth quarter of the year.

Lonmin Plc provides an update on the matte run-out incident at the number one furnace, announced on Monday 15 June. An inspection of the Number One furnace has established that the source of the matte run-out was a water leak in one of the lower copper cooling waffle units above one of the matte tappe blocks. This unit is being replaced and a full investigation into the cause of the leak is underway.



Matte is expected to be tapped again at the Number One furnace within the previously estimated 30 days, during which time the vessel will be fully repaired, monitored and tested. Our initial total cost estimate for the repair of the furnace and the extra costs of running our Pyromet furnaces is around US$4 million. The Pyromet furnaces tapped matte on 21 June 2009 and will remain in operation until September 2009.



As a result of utilising our additional smelting capacity, we expect to process the majority of the concentrate inventory built up ahead of the Smelter during the Number One furnace shutdown before the end of the 2009 financial year. However, the shutdown will impact our ability to fully refine the remainder of this built up metal in process during that period. As a consequence of the shutdown, it is estimated that at 30 September 2009 there could be an increase in metal in process of up to 20 000 ounces of Platinum.

Prospects

The company maintains the sales guidance for the 2009 financial year of around 700 000 Platinum ounces. Platinum sales in the first half of the 2009 financial year were around 45% of the full year Platinum sales target for our core Marikana operations, which we first published in November 2008, and this was ahead of our initial expectations for the period. The key driver of this was the performance of the process division, where metal in process inventory was drawn down faster than had been expected following the number one furnace rebuild during the first quarter of the 2009 financial year. For the second half of the 2009 financial year, management will be focused on minimising the possible disruption resulting from the execution of the significant restructuring programme, particularly as crews are redeployed around the Marikana property, and the closure of a small uneconomic decline shaft and a further five uneconomic half levels at Marikana as part of this restructuring programme. In addition, the continuing ramp up of Saffy shaft is a key area of focus. It is anticipated that any impact of these factors on production and sales will be compensated for by the normalising of metal in process inventory from the process division, with an expected weighting towards the fourth quarter of the financial year. With respect to costs, the previous guidance was that Rand-based gross operating costs would increase by less than South African inflation, which was around 11% at that time. Following the actions taken the company are now targeting rand- based gross operating costs to be lower than last year's level.

Lonmin Plc, the world's third largest Platinum producer, announced its production report for the three months and six months to 31 March 2009.



Total tonnes mined for the second quarter of the 2009 financial year were 2.7 million, an 8% decline year-on-year. This was due to the planned closures of our Marikana opencast operations and our Baobab shaft at Limpopo. Our underground Marikana mining operations produced 2.6 million tonnes during the second quarter of the 2009 financial year, a 7% increase from the same period last year, when production was impacted by the Eskom power outage in January 2008. The increase in production from the prior year period was supported by an improved performance from our conventional operations, which was achieved despite the disruption caused by the significant restructuring programme being carried out during the period. Production at Saffy and Hossy shafts continued to ramp up, whilst underground ore reserve development at Marikana continued to improve. The safety performance remained strong, with LTIFR at the end of 31 March 2009 improving 6% from the 2008 financial year. However, the company suffered two fatalities during the quarter.

2008 has been a difficult year with cost escalation throughout the year and challenging market conditions in the latter part of the year putting pressure on company margins and cash generation. The group reported earnings per share of 291.1c (205.1c).



Dividend

An interim dividend for 2008 of 59cps was paid on 8 August 2008 which, with no final dividend, will become the total dividend for the year.



Outlook

Recent unprecedented developments in world financial and economic markets have had a substantial impact on PGM and other commodity prices and management expect these volatile conditions to continue in the short term. However, the board is confident that Lonmin, with its high quality asset base, low cost position and strong balance sheet, will be able to withstand these short term pressures. Lonmin's liquidity position is sound, its gearing is 12% and the group's banking relationships remain strong and secure. In addition, the action plans management is implementing will ensure the dompany will be in a strong position when the PGM markets recover. For the 2009 financial year, Lonmin will target Platinum sales to be broadly in line with that achieved in the 2008 financial year. Management is targeting the group's Rand- based gross operating costs for the year to increase at a rate well below South African inflation and capital spend of USD250 million for the financial year. The long term demand fundamentals for Platinum and other PGMs remain attractive and the group's key priority continues to be delivering value for all its shareholders, through improving its operational performance and creating a culture of delivery.

Business Report quoted Investec as saying that Lonmin might need to refinance debt, cut its dividend or reduce investment because of a possible funding shortfall of more than USD150 million by the end of financial 2009. This is in response to platinum prices that have sunk 40% in 2008 so far.

The board of Lonmin notes the statement made by Xstrata plc ("Xstrata") on SENS that it has withdrawn its pre-conditional proposed offer for the company. Lonmin believes that the current prices of platinum and other PGMs have been substantially impacted by forced selling of platinum investments, physical inventory selling by automotive companies and negative sentiment on the economic outlook and supply-demand dynamics. While these factors have significantly depressed prices, the board remains confident in the longer-term demand fundamentals for platinum and other PGMs. Lonmin has long-life and high quality assets and is the lowest-cost integrated producer of PGMs in the Bushveld. These significant and fundamental competitive advantages ensure that Lonmin is better positioned than other PGM producers in the Bushveld to withstand the challenges presented by any period of lower PGM prices. As previously announced, Ian Farmer, Lonmin`s new CEO, is leading a review of the group's operations focused on improving performance and maximising value for Lonmin shareholders from the group's unique and highly attractive long-term assets.

Revenue grew by almost half to USD907 million (USD631 million) for the six months to 31 March 2008. EBITDA rose to USD414 million (USD272 million) and a higher operating profit of USD368 million (USD229 milllion) was recorded. Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders was USD283 million, compared to a loss of USD3 million previously. Earnings on a per share basis grew to USD181.1cps (loss of USD2cps).



Dividend

An interim ordinary dividend of 59cps (55cps) has been declared.



Outlook

Lonmin estimates that platinum sales for the 2008 financial year will be around 775 000 ounces of platinum. This guidance is based on a steady improvement in the underlying performance of the mines in the second half as the initiatives implemented by the new mining team gain traction. This guidance does take account of the current constraints in relation to electricity supply but any deterioration of the current power supply situation or any further significant safety stoppages are risks to this target.



The production environment remains challenging with the uncertainty over electricity supply, a tight market for certain skill groups and a continued emphasis on safety likely to continue in the medium term. These factors will continue to constrain PGM supply and should continue to support the current higher price environment.

Brad Mills, Chief Executive Officer said: "Our mining operations continue to perform very strongly reporting record production for the nine months of 751 759 ounces of platinum and 1 456 045 ounces of total PGMs in concentrate increases of 8.8% and 11.0% respectively on the same period last year. We remain on track to produce around 1 million ounces of Platinum in concentrate from our mines for the full year. The Process Division has ramped up more slowly than we had planned during the third quarter following the April shutdown of the number one furnace. The problems we have experienced on the metallurgical side of the business have now been substantially resolved and we have begun the process of recommissioning the Merensky furnace at our Marikana site. This furnace will give us greater operational flexibility in the future and will be operational from January 2007. Given the slower ramp up of the Process Division we now anticipate sales for the full year will be around 950 000 to 960 000 ounces of Platinum."

Lonmin's fourth quarter production report will be announced on 25 October 2006 and final results will be announced on 15 November 2006.

Commenting on the group's production report to 31 March 06, Brad Mills, chief executive of the group, said:

"Our mining operations had a record six months to 31 March 2006 producing 501 827 ounces of Platinum and 977 352 ounces of total PGMs in concentrate for despatch to the Process Division. As a result of the 27 day shutdown for the planned rebuild of the number one furnace sales for the half were 413 030 ounces of Platinum and 802 766 ounces of total PGMs. We continue to expect our mining operations to produce around 1 million ounces of Platinum for the 2006 fiscal year. In early April we shut down our number one furnace for 11 days to repair a leak. The Smelter is now fully repaired and once again running at full capacity. As a result of this outage, we currently believe that sales of Platinum for the full year will be around 970 000 to 980 000 ounces."

Lonmin announced that the necessary repairs to the number one furnace at its Marikana operations have been completed. The cause of the leak appeared to have been an original installation error, which resulted in the failure to weld the base plate of the furnace shell in the matte waffle zone. Hearth expansion following the furnace rebuild in February created differential pressure in the matte tap block support structure which moved the matte waffles creating a channel for matte and slag leakage down the sides of the matte waffles. Repairs entailed the welding of the base plate of the furnace to the girders which support the vessel, reinforcing the support structure in the areas around the matte tap holes and replacing the deep matte waffles and refractories at the site of the leak. The smelter has been restarted and it is currently expected to recommence matte tapping from the furnace on Thursday 20 April 06. An assessment of the impact on full year production is being completed and Lonmin will provide an update on this with its half-year production statement on 25 April 2006.

Lonmin is commissioning a feasibility study to increase its smelting and refining capacity from its current forecast of 1.3 million ounces of Platinum per annum in 2010 (2.5 million ounces total PGMs) to between 1.75 and 2.0 million ounces of Platinum per annum (3.5 to 4 million ounces total PGMs). This has the potential to be an attractive brownfield expansion opportunity for Lonmin at a capital cost expected to be of the order of USD300-USD350 per annual PGM ounce produced, approximately one third of the cost of new greenfield capacity. The additional metallurgical capacity would enable the further expansion of Lonmin's mine development projects and also allow Lonmin to enter the attractive custom smelting and refining market for PGM concentrates in South Africa. The group currently estimates the capital cost for such an expansion would be between USD300 million to USD350 million. The feasibility study would take approximately 12 months and cost around USD10 million.

Lonmin today announced its production report for the fourth quarter to 30 September 2005.



Brad Mills, Chief Executive Officer said:

"We had a very strong fourth quarter with overall Platinum production of 309 239 ounces giving annual production ahead of forecast at 916 420 ounces of Platinum and 1 704 249 ounces of PGMs. We were pleased with the contribution from Limpopo which produced 10 144 ounces of Platinum on target with our integration plan. The strong performance of our Smelter has continued with month by month increases in throughput rising to a new record of 21,114 tonnes of concentrate smelted in September. Last November's Smelter incident had a major impact on our cost base. The recovery process has been managed successfully and the estimated increase in our cost base for the full year has been limited to around the current level of South African inflation of 4.8% at our Marikana operations.



"On 21 June 2005, we signed the New Era Labour Agreement with the three unions representing our employees at our Marikana operations. This agreement is from 1 October 2005 and runs for a five year period. The terms of the agreement initially limited increases in basic wages to CPIX, the South Africa inflation measure for each of the five years. We have since agreed to revise the terms of this agreement to allow for basic wage increases in the first two years only of CPIX plus 2%. As we indicated at the time of the 3rd Quarter Production Report, in year one there is also an equalisation element under the New Era Labour Agreement to eliminate all the historical discrepancies in pay and conditions which existed between our three mines which equates to a first year only cost of 2.9% above the basic wage increase.

Our Limpopo operation has also agreed a five year wage agreement. Under the terms of this agreement basic wage increases will be linked to CPIX. Reflecting the different cost positions between Limpopo and Marikana, Limpopo employees will be entitled to benefit through a gain share scheme as they improve the unit costs of the operation."



Lonmin's Final Results will be announced on 16 November 2005.

Following completion of the acquisition of Southern Platinum on 15 September 2005 Lonmin informed the board of Messina of its firm intention to proceed with a cash offer of R33 per share for the outstanding shares in Messina not currently owned by the Lonmin group. Through its acquisition of Southern Platinum, the Lonmin group currently owns 91.5% of Messina. The cash offer is conditional only upon the obtaining of the requisite regulatory approvals. This offer is required under the terms of the South African Securities Regulation Panel Code on Takeovers and Mergers and the Rules of the SRP.



The offer price of R33 per share represents the see through value of Messina based on the offer price Lonmin paid for 100% of Southern Platinum and is a:

*premium of 84% to the closing market value of Messina shares on the JSE on 18 March 2005, the last trading day before Lonmin announced its offer for Southern Platinum; and

*discount of 20% to the closing market value of Messina shares of R41.47 on the JSE on 14 September 2005.

The offer price values the total outstanding Messina shares at R56.3m (USD8.9m).

Lonmin Investments Canada Inc. (`Lonmin Investments`) and Southern Platinum Corp. (`Southern Platinum`) have announced that on 28 June 2005 Lonmin Investments became the sole shareholder of Southern Platinum following the completion of statutory compulsory acquisition proceedings pursuant to the provisions of the Canada Business Corporations Act. As a result of the compulsory acquisition, Lonmin Investments acquired all of the common shares (`SPC Shares`) in the capital of Southern Platinum which Lonmin Investments did not previously own. Lonmin Investments had previously acquired approximately 85 090 000 SPC Shares pursuant to its takeover bid that concluded on 28 June 2005, representing approximately 97% of the aggregate number of issued and outstanding SPC Shares and approximately 91% of the SPC Shares on a fully diluted basis. In connection with the compulsory acquisition, the SPC Shares were delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange at the close of trading on July 26, 2005.



On 29 July 2005, after the completion of the compulsory acquisition, Southern Platinum effected a share reclassification whereby each issued and outstanding SPC Share was changed into a preferred share of Southern Platinum redeemable by Southern Platinum or the holder thereof for a redemption price of CAD2.66 per preferred share. Lonmin Investments also subscribed for and holds all of the shares outstanding of a newly created class of common shares of Southern Platinum. As a result of the reclassification, the terms of the Toronto Stock Exchange-listed warrants outstanding under the warrant indenture of 17 November 2003 entered into by SouthernEra Diamonds Inc., Southern Platinum and Computershare Trust Company of Canada were amended as of 29 July 2005 and Southern Platinum was released from all of its obligations in respect of such warrants.



Southern Platinum and Lonmin Investments intend to amalgamate on 1 August 2005 with the surviving corporate entity to be named Lonmin Investments Canada Inc., which will be a whollyowned subsidiary of Lonmin Plc. The amalgamated company will apply to Canadian securities regulatories to cease to be a reporting issuer under the securities laws in all applicable provinces of Canada.

Lonmin Plc, the National Union of Mineworkers (`NUM`), Solidarity and UASA have announced that they have agreed and signed a New Era Labour Agreement (the `agreement`). This innovative agreement represents a new era in labour relations at Lonmin and has been drawn up and finalised by the joint union management problem solving forum (JUMPS), a committee made up of representatives from Lonmin management and NUM, Solidarity and UASA. The agreement is effective from 1 October 2005 for a 5-year term and covers all employees at Lonmin`s mining operations at Marikana, South Africa. The agreement is a living agreement and the parties have committed to continuous problem solving through the JUMPS structure.



Under the terms of the agreement basic pay will be increased annually by a percentage equal to the South African CPIX inflation measure. Employees will have the opportunity to earn bonuses over and above CPIX by sharing in the improvements they achieve in costs and productivity under a gain sharing scheme, called Platinum Plus. The terms of the gain share will allow employees to share on an equal basis in an annual bonus pool equivalent to 25% of improvements in costs and productivity over an agreed base value. The agreement equalises the pay and conditions of employees across the Lonmin property and eliminates the historical differences that existed between each of Lonmin`s three mines. Lonmin employees will be invited to participate in shaping the future of the Lonmin business though the continued existence of JUMPS and will be encouraged to share their ideas for the continuous improvement of the operations. These ideas will be evaluated and implemented using Lonmin`s existing Six Sigma programme. The wage agreement with employees at Lonmin`s Western Platinum Refinery ends in September 2006 and will be re-negotiated at that time.
