Toll Treatment Arrangement                                                      
Central Rand Gold`s operating subsidiary, Central Rand Gold SA (Pty) Limited    
("CRG" or the "Company") has entered into a toll treatment agreement with       
Cuminore (Pty) Limited ("Cuminore") for the toll treatment and extraction of    
gold from concentrate that is currently being produced from the 20tph crushing  
and concentrating plant located at Slot 8 on the Consolidated Main Reef         
tenement.                                                                       
The agreement caters for the treatment of 3,600 tons of concentrate with cost   
expectations closely aligned with the Company`s internal Carbon in Leach ("CIL")
plant expected operational costs. The Cuminore plant is to be utilised          
exclusively for material supplied by CRG to ensure that there is no loss of     
material. A full clean up, including the stripping of the mill linings will also
occur at the end of the contract. Cuminore`s treatment facility is located less 
than 5 kilometres away from Slot 8.                                             
The primary reason for this agreement is to ensure an early cashflow while the  
Company`s CIL plant is being commissioned. The Company expects to begin treating
concentrate through its own CIL plant by the end of April 2009. There are also  
potential synergies that could arise from the relationship with Cuminore        
including uranium and sulphur extraction.
