1 March 2005                                                                    
Declaration of effectiveness of the United States registration statement        
Harmony is pleased to announce that its registration statement on Form F-4, with
respect to the Harmony consideration shares in the US offer, has been declared  
effective by the SEC. Accordingly, the only remaining condition to the proposed 
merger are the requisite regulatory approvals, including the competition        
authorities in South Africa.                                                    
ENDS                                                                            
Note:                                                                           
Unless the context otherwise requires, the definitions contained in the offer   
document or the registration statement sent to Gold Fields shareholders have the
same meaning in this announcement.                                              
In connection with the proposed merger, Harmony has filed with the U.S.         
Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), a registration statement on Form F- 
4, which includes a preliminary prospectus and related exchange offer materials,
to register the Harmony ordinary shares (including Harmony ordinary shares      
represented by Harmony ADSs) to be issued in exchange for the remainder of Gold 
Fields ordinary shares held by Gold Fields shareholders resident in the United  
States and for Gold Fields ADSs held by Gold Fields shareholders wherever       
resident, as well as a Statement on Schedule TO. Investors and holders of Gold  
Fields securities are strongly advised to read the registration statement and   
the preliminary prospectus, the related exchange offer materials and the final  
prospectus (when available), the Statement on Schedule TO and any other relevant
documents filed with the SEC, as well as any amendments and supplements to those
documents, because they contain important information. Investors and holders of 
Gold Fields securities may obtain free copies of the registration statement, the
preliminary and final prospectus (when available) and related exchange offer    
materials and the Statement on Schedule TO, as well as other relevant documents 
filed or to be filed with the SEC, at the SEC"s web site at www.sec.gov. The    
preliminary prospectus and other transaction-related documents may be obtained  
for free from MacKenzie Partners, Inc., the information agent for the U.S.      
offer, at the following address: 105 Madison Avenue, New York, New York 10016;

This communication is for information purposes only. It shall not constitute an 
offer to purchase or exchange or the solicitation of an offer to sell or        
exchange any securities of Gold Fields or an offer to sell or exchange or the   
solicitation of an offer to buy or exchange any securities of Harmony in the US,
nor shall there be any sale or exchange of securities in any jurisdiction in    
which such offer, solicitation or sale or exchange would be unlawful prior to   
the registration or qualification under the laws of such jurisdiction. The      
distribution of this communication may, in some countries, be restricted by law 
or regulation. Accordingly, persons who come into possession of this document   
should inform themselves of and observe these restrictions. The solicitation of 
offers to buy Gold Fields ordinary shares (including Gold Fields ordinary shares
represented by Gold Fields ADSs) in the US will only be made pursuant to a      
prospectus and related offer materials that Harmony has sent to holders of Gold 
Fields securities. The Harmony ordinary shares (including Harmony ordinary      
shares represented by Harmony ADSs) may not be sold, nor may offers to buy be   
accepted, in the US prior to the time the registration statement becomes        
effective. No offering of securities shall be made in the US except by means of 
a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the United States        
Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
