Johannesburg, 17 October 2002 - Harmony today announced                         
that the company had secured the distribution rights to the United              
States and Canada for the Lord of the Rings trilogy.                            
The licensing rights include the distribution of `The One Ring`, gold           
and silver jewellery, investment bars and coins.                                
"We are extremely pleased with securing the rights for the North                
American market for these products produced in South Africa.                    
Beneficiation of our gold has been high on our priority list and                
initiatives like these ensure new opportunities for South Africa and            
its people," commented Ferdi Dippenaar, marketing director.                     
The company was successful in producing `The One Ring` for the                  
launch of the `Lord of the Rings` trilogy in 2001. `The Two Towers`,            
the second motion picture is set for release in December 2002 and               
is expected to be even more popular than `The Fellowship of the                 
Ring`.                                                                          
The Free State goldfields will see more benefits from this initiative,          
as Emthuthwini and the Virginia Jewellery School will be producing              
the silver articles associated with the three motion pictures. Orders           
to the value of in excess of R1,0 million have already been placed              
by Harmony with Emthuthwini and the Virginia Jewellery School for               
delivery to the North American market.
