Board Changes                                                                   
The Company is pleased to announce the appointment of Sarel Johan du Toit, 38,  
as Finance Director with effect from 1 August 2008. Johan du Toit joins Central 
Rand Gold from BHP Billiton where, based in Johannesburg, he headed up the South
African and European Financial Shared Services for BHP Billiton plc, delivering 
all aspects of financial management and reporting. From 1996 to 2004, he worked 
for Standard Bank of South Africa, reporting to the board on financial          
management, performance analysis and latterly coordinating Standard Bank`s three
year strategic financial forecast.                                              
Having been instrumental in the development of Central Rand Gold and its dual   
listing in London and Johannesburg last year, Ric Vittino has decided to leave  
the Company. He will remain at Central Rand Gold until the end of August 2008 to
ensure an orderly transition to Johan du Toit.                                  
Alastair Walton, Chairman, commented "Ric Vittino has played an important role  
in the development of Central Rand Gold, from the formation of the Company`s    
forerunner, Rand Quest Syndicate Limited in Perth in 2003. On behalf of the     
Board I would like to give our sincere thanks to both Ric for his tireless work 
and also to his family in Perth who have given Ric strong support as the        
management of the Central Rand Gold project moved from Perth to Johannesburg.   
The appointment of Johan du Toit as Finance Director, following the recent      
appointment of Michael McMahon as a Non-Executive Director, further strengthens 
the Board`s South African composition as we focus on our future mining          
Greg James, Chief Executive, commented "Ric has been a central pillar to Central
Rand Gold and he will be sorely missed. We welcome Johan du Toit as an extremely
strong and professional Finance Director who has demonstrated the financial     
skills required to manage large scale processes and mining operations, reporting
to the exacting standards of the world`s leading mining company."               
There are no matters that require disclosure under FSA Handbook Listing Rule    
9.6.13 in respect of Mr du Toit.
