HAR - Harmony - Harmony And DRDGold Settle Their Excessive Pricing Case With    
Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited

("Harmony" or "the company")                                                    
Johannesburg. Monday, 14 September 2009. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited    
(Harmony) and DRDGOLD Limited (DRDGOLD) announced today that they have          
withdrawn their excessive pricing complaint against ArcelorMittal South Africa  
Limited (ArcelorMittal).                                                        
The complaint was initially lodged with the Competition Commission in 2002,     
with the substance of the complaint being that ArcelorMittal (or ISCOR as it    
was then known) abused its dominant position in the South African flat steel    
market by charging excessive prices, to the detriment of consumers, in          
contravention of section 8(a) of the Competition Act, 1998.                     
Harmony and DRDGOLD withdrew their complaint, which remained unresolved after   
several years of litigation, following the conclusion of a settlement           
agreement with ArcelorMittal. The terms of the settlement agreement are         
confidential and will not be made public. The settlement agreement reached      
will permit the gold miners to focus their energies and resources on their      
core businesses, and represents a satisfactory outcome to the matter for them.
