Johannesburg. Wednesday, 22 July 2009. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited      
(Harmony) regretfully announces that a fall of ground accident at its Unisel    
shaft, which is part of the Virginia Operations in the Free State, yesterday    
resulted in the death of a miner.                                               
Management together with the Department of Mineral Resources commenced

Harmony`s Chief Executive Officer, Graham Briggs says, "This is truly a tragic  
incident and we express our sincerest condolences to the bereaved family. Safety
continues to receive priority attention from all stakeholders involved and we   
have already seen improvements in our safety record as a result of the effective
behaviour-based safety initiatives that we have rolled out at all our           
operations. Despite these efforts, it remains unfortunate that this fatality    
still occurred."
