Johannesburg, 5 August 2003 - Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited               
(NYSE: HMY JSE: HAR) today announced that Mr Max Vuyisile Sisulu has accepted   
an invitation to join the company"s Board of Directors. Mr Sisulu"s appointment 
as independent, non-executive director is effective immediately.                
Max Sisulu is the current Deputy Chief Executive Officer at Denel (Pty) Ltd, a  
post he has held since November 1998. From 2001 to 2003 he was the Chairperson  
of the AMD (South African Aerospace, Maritime and Defence Industries). He is    
also a council member of the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) and a       
member of the Premier of the Free State"s Economic Advisory Council.            
In January 1995 he was elected to the National Executive Committee (re-elected  
in 2002) and National Working Committee of the ANC, serving on its              
economic transformation and finance sub-commitees. He is also a trustee of the  
Umkhonto We Sizwe (MK) Veterans Association. Sisulu was instrumental in

Sisulu went on to chair the influential Parliamentary Select Committee on the   
RDP until the end of 1996.

agreed to add his expertise to the Harmony Team," says Bernard Swanepoel, Chief 
Executive.
