HARMONY SELLS MOUNT MAGNET GOLD IN AUSTRALIA
Johannesburg. Thursday, 8 July 2010. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited
(Harmony) announces that it has executed a Share Sale Agreement with the
Australian-based gold miner Ramelius Resources Limited (Ramelius) for the sale
of the Mount Magnet Gold Project (Mount Magnet) for A$40 million cash.
The Mount Magnet project, located in Western Australia, was placed on care and
maintenance in 2008. The package includes an extensive advanced exploration
portfolio and the Checker CIL processing plant.

continuation of our asset optimization strategy. We consider this operation as
non-core to this strategy and this divestment allows us to focus on growing,
developing and operating our portfolio of quality assets in Papua New Guinea."
