Notification in terms of Section 45(5) of the Companies Act 71 of 2008

Johannesburg, 7 August 2018: Following the receipt of the US$500 million
Stream Advance Payment the Company is initially applying a portion (US$72
million) of the proceeds towards the settlement of Stillwater Mining
Company’s (“Stillwater”) utilisations under the US$600 million Revolving
Credit Facility (USD RCF). The Company is currently in a closed period and
consideration will be given to settling other long term debt instruments
post the announcement of H1 results and once it moves into an open period.

Notice is therefore hereby given that, in terms of the provisions of Section
45(5) of the Companies Act 71 of 2008 (the Companies Act), and pursuant to
the special resolution passed at the annual general meeting of the Company
held on 30 May 2018, the board of directors of the Company (the Board) has
adopted a resolution to provide financial assistance to an indirect wholly
owned subsidiary of the Company, Thor US Holdco Inc. (US HoldCo), by
advancing to US HoldCo an amount of US$72 million (the “Loan”) for the
purposes of capitalising its wholly owned subsidiary, Stillwater.       This
partial application by the Company of the Stream Advance Payment will enable
Stillwater to settle its utilisations under the USD RCF.           The Loan
constitutes direct and/or indirect financial assistance in terms of the
provisions of Section 45(2) of the Companies Act.

Having considered all reasonable financial circumstances of the Company in
terms of and pursuant to the provisions of Section 45 as read with Section
4 of the Act, the Board satisfied itself that:

• immediately after providing the financial assistance referred to above,
  the Company would satisfy the solvency and liquidity test contemplated in
  Section 4 of the Act
• all relevant conditions and restrictions relating to the granting of such
  financial assistance by the Company contained in the Company's memorandum
  of incorporation are satisfied
• the terms and conditions on which such financial assistance is to be given
  are fair and reasonable to the Company
