WORK STOPPAGE AT VIRGINIA OPERATIONS                                            
Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (Harmony) acknowledges that 6 500 employees 
at its Virginia operations downed tools earlier today.                          
The work stoppage at Harmony`s Virginia operations in the Free State is related 
to the safety incident at Unisel Mine where an employee lost his life on Friday 
11 July 2008. Harmony is engaging with regional union representatives to address
the matter.                                                                     
The employee was killed at Unisel on Friday after accidently injuring himself   
with a water jet that he was operating. Unisel has enjoyed an excellent safety  
record until this unfortunate incident, having last week achieved their One     
Million Fatality Free Shifts.                                                   
In another incident, an employee was killed this morning at Harmony`s Elandsrand
Gold Mine in an accident involving a scraper.                                   
Harmony deeply regrets the loss of life and extends its condolences to the next 
of kin. We will continue to do all we can to eliminate fatal accidents on our   
Issued by Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited
