FATALITY AT HARMONY`S TARGET MINE                                               
Johannesburg. Friday, 17 April 2009. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited        
(Harmony) regretfully announces that an accident at its Target mine in the Free 
State on Tuesday resulted in the loss of life of a contract worker. Initially,  
the cause of death was unclear. Therefore an autopsy was performed to determine 
the cause of death, which was found to be electrocution. Investigations of the  
equipment used are also underway to establish the reasons for the electrocution.
Production was not hindered by the accident. However, the National Union of     
Mineworkers (NUM) has declared a day of mourning that commenced last night and  
will continue for the duration of today.                                        
Harmony`s Chief Executive Officer, Graham Briggs and his management team,       
express their sincere condolences to the family of the deceased.                
Harmony continues to address safety through its behavior-based initiatives that 
have been rolled out to all of its operations. The continuous communication on  
safety in the working place as well as off the job is receiving priority        
attention from all stakeholders involved.                                       
Issued by Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited
