Johannesburg. Monday, 27 July 2009. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited         
(Harmony) regretfully announces that a mineworker died and another injured      
last Friday as a result of injuries sustained from a fall of ground accident    
at Harmony`s Evander 2 shaft in Mpumalanga.                                     
Management together with the Department of Mineral Resources commenced          
investigations on Friday.                                                       
Harmony`s management team expresses its sincerest condolences to the family of  
the deceased and sympathises with those affected by the incident. Evander in    
particular has had an excellent safety record with Evander 8 shaft recently

Harmony`s Chief Executive Officer, Graham Briggs says, "Management continues    
to look at all areas to ensure safety improvements are sustainable by           
improving the safety systems. Harmony management is committed to change the     
culture and behaviour of all our employees and to achieve the aspirations set   
by each of the operations. It remains tragic that this fatality occurred."
