Harmony`s Target mine accident update: Rescue workers bring two employees to    
safety                                                                          
Johannesburg. Tuesday, 27 October 2009. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited     
(Harmony) announced this morning that rescue workers have brought to safety     
the two employees trapped underground following yesterday`s rockfall at the     
company`s Target Mine in the Free State.                                        
All employees involved were accounted for at 20:00 last night.                  
The two rescued employees both sustained injuries and have been admitted to     
hospital. Their condition is stable.                                            
Two employees died in yesterday`s rockfall, the circumstances of which are      
being investigated both internally and in conjunction with the Safety           
Inspectorate of the Department of Mineral Resources. Production at the mine     
was stopped by management shortly after the rockfall. Measures are being        
taken, however, to ensure that the area in the main decline where the           
rockfall took place is secured and that working places are supported and made   
safe.                                                                           
Management extends its deepest condolences to the families, friends and         
colleagues of the men who died.
