CENTRAL RAND GOLD`S TRIAL MINING ACTIVITIES                                     
Central Rand Gold, following the hearing today, Thursday, 5 November 2009, is   
pleased to announce that the "urgent interdict" sought by Puno Gold Investments 
(Pty) Limited to halt the company`s trial mining operations has been dismissed  
by the South Gauteng High Court. In addition, Puno is required to pay all legal 
costs associated with this dispute                                              
Reacting to the Court`s decision, CRG`s CEO, Johan du Toit, said:               
"We are pleased that this unnecessary distraction caused by Puno has now been   
dismissed in its entirety by the independent court.  The court case has not     
delayed the development of our assets and we look forward to progressing with   
trial mining, which is the springboard towards full-scale commercial gold mining
in our Johannesburg mining right area."                                         
Central Rand Gold is listed on the London Stock Exchange and on the JSE Limited 
in Johannesburg. It was awarded its first New Order Mining Right in August 2008.
Trial mining began in September 2009 at Slot 8 situated at its Consolidated Main
Reef tenement in southern Johannesburg. The Company is actively involved in the 
communities in which its mining operations are situated through employment,     
training, education, sport and small business development initiatives.
