Harmony and Gold Fields continue negotiations
Johannesburg, 8 January 2002 - Harmony today announced that Gold Fields
Limited and the company have extended the agreement period from 15 January
2002 to
15 February 2002.
In terms of the agreement concluded on 9 November 2001, Gold Fields granted
Harmony an exclusive right to negotiate the acquisition of St.Helena and
Oryx.  In return Harmony granted Gold Fields an exclusive right to acquire
shares in Goldfields Limited of Australia, representing at least 19,9% of
the current issued share capital of that company.
"As negotiations have not been concluded, we considered it prudent to extend
the period to progress the acquisition of these assets.  Our commitment to
the consolidation of the Free State goldfields as a major gold producing
region in South Africa remains in place," commented Bernard Swanepoel, chief
executive.
