NEWS RELEASE FROM HARMONY                                                       
Harmony appoints new non-executive director to its board                        
Harmony announced today the appointment of former Mozambican President Joachim  
Alberto Chissano to its board of directors, with effect from 22 April.          
CE Bernard Swanepoel said: "We are extremely pleased former President Chissano  
has agreed to become a non-executive director of Harmony. His long track record 
of commitment to and involvement in the shaping of African politics and         
economics will ensure our business remains relevant and effective."             
Chissano has played a pivotal role on the African continent for decades, helping
to broker peace and self-governance for his country; leading the transitional   
government of independence; championing the development of a constitution and   
multi-party elections and ushering in an era of commercial and economic growth. 
Swanepoel pointed to the advent of Nepad, the African Union and the on-going    
presence the Commonwealth and other multi-lateral cooperative bodies have in    
Africa. "The singular and invaluable experiences President Chissano has had will
be of great value for Harmony as we navigate a new cooperative period in        
Africa"s history."                                                              
Chissano said when the African Union was established: "We must be able to       
discover opportunities where yesterday we saw nothing but threats and risks. We 
should be ready to discover partners where yesterday we saw enemies. To do this,
we have to redesign the whole conceptual architecture so that we can see further
ahead - and in a different way. We must create a new vision and we must have the
necessary courage to turn that vision into reality."                            
He said he was very glad to join the Harmony Board, saying, "Harmony is a       
progressive company with strong links to Mozambique through its workforce. We   
share a vision for the African continent. I am looking forward to participating 
at Board level in a committed Southern African company with an international
