Lonmin Plc ("Lonmin") announces that, following the passing of all resolutions at the General Meeting

the London Stock Exchange at 8.00 am (London time) today, and on the JSE at 9:00am (Johannesburg

Sub-division, although the nominal value of each ordinary share will be reduced to $0.000001.
Applications have been made to the FCA, the London Stock Exchange and the JSE Ltd for the Sub-division
to be reflected on the Official List and Lonmin's listings on each exchange.

admission of 26,997,717,400 New Shares to the Premium Segment of the Official List and to trading, nil
paid, on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities is expected to take place at 8.00
am (London time) today, and listing of and trading in Letters of Allocation on the JSE on a deferred
settlement basis is expected to take place at 9:00am (Johannesburg time) today.
