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.

the deceased and sympathises with those affected by the incident. Evander in

to look at all areas to ensure safety improvements are sustainable by

by each of the operations. It remains tragic that this fatality occurred."
