WINDER COMMISSIONING AT HARMONY`S EVANDER 8 SHAFT WELL AHEAD OF SCHEDULE        
Harmony Gold Mining Co. Ltd.                                                    
NEWS RELEASE                                                                    
WINDER COMMISSIONING AT HARMONY`S EVANDER 8 SHAFT WELL AHEAD OF SCHEDULE        
Johannesburg, 30 July 2002 - Harmony today announced that production at its No. 
8 Shaft in Evander would be back to its planned levels of 40 000 ounces per     
quarter, 8 weeks sooner than anticipated.                                       
Following a severe seismic event on July 12th 2002, the company expected        
production at this shaft to be interrupted for a period of approximately 12     
weeks. Due to fact that spares for the sub-shaft hoist winder were available at 
shorter notice than anticipated, repairs proceeded without unnecessary delays   
and the shaft is expected to be back to 80% of its planned production by the end
of next week.                                                                   
Bernard Swanepoel, chief executive commented: "We were extremely fortunate that 
only four employees were injured at the time of the event.  By having the added 
benefit of the repairs being completed way ahead of time, operations at         
Evander`s No. 8 Shaft will soon be back to normal in all aspects."              
Ends
