APPOINTMENT OF CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER                                          
Patrice Motsepe, Chairman of the Board, is pleased to announce the appointment  
of Graham Briggs as Chief Executive Officer of Harmony Gold Mining Company      
Limited with effect from 1 January 2008.                                        
Harmony appointed a selection panel at the end of October, 2007, made up of four
non-executive Board members, to oversee the selection process for the position  
of Chief Executive Officer. The Panel engaged the services of a professional    
executive search company to assist in identifying candidates who would qualify  
for the position. A comprehensive brief was used in identifying the candidates  
in South Africa as well as some candidates abroad. Discussions with 36 potential
candidates were held.                                                           
The final shortlist consisted of four candidates and they were invited for      
formal interviews.                                                              
Patrice Motsepe says, "Graham proved to be the outstanding candidate and we are 
pleased to announce that the board has unanimously appointed him as Chief       
Executive Officer as from 1 January 2008. He has been overseeing the            
introduction of the Harmony "back to basics" management style and has done a    
great job. Harmony is on its way to being the globally competitive and          
profitable company that we know it can be."
