     Certain statements contained in this document, other than statements of historical fact, including, without limitation, those
     concerning the economic outlook for the gold mining industry, expectations regarding gold prices, production, cash costs, all-in
     sustaining costs, all-in costs, cost savings and other operating results, return on equity, productivity improvements, growth
     prospects and outlook of AngloGold Ashanti’s operations, individually or in the aggregate, including the achievement of project
     milestones, commencement and completion of commercial operations of certain of AngloGold Ashanti’s exploration and
     production projects and the completion of acquisitions, dispositions or joint venture transactions, AngloGold Ashanti’s liquidity
     and capital resources and capital expenditures and the outcome and consequence of any potential or pending litigation or
     regulatory proceedings or environmental health and safety issues, are forward-looking statements regarding AngloGold
     Ashanti’s operations, economic performance and financial condition. These forward-looking statements or forecasts involve
     known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause AngloGold Ashanti’s actual results, performance or
     achievements to differ materially from the anticipated results, performance or achievements expressed or implied in these
     forward-looking statements. Although AngloGold Ashanti believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking
     statements and forecasts are reasonable, no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct.
     Accordingly, results could differ materially from those set out in the forward-looking statements as a result of, among other
     factors, changes in economic, social and political and market conditions, the success of business and operating initiatives,
     changes in the regulatory environment and other government actions, including environmental approvals, fluctuations in gold
     prices and exchange rates, the outcome of pending or future litigation proceedings, and business and operational risk
     management. For a discussion of such risk factors, refer to AngloGold Ashanti’s annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended
     31 December 2013, which was filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on 14 April 2014. These
     factors are not necessarily all of the important factors that could cause AngloGold Ashanti’s actual results to differ materially
     from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. Other unknown or unpredictable factors could also have material
     adverse effects on future results. Consequently, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking
     statements. AngloGold Ashanti undertakes no obligation to update publicly or release any revisions to these forward-looking
     statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except to
     the extent required by applicable law. All subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to AngloGold
     Ashanti or any person acting on its behalf are qualified by the cautionary statements herein.
