Johannesburg. Monday, 1 August 2011. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited        
("Harmony" or "the Company") today announced that Alwyn Pretorius has been      
appointed Executive: Safety and Health, a newly created executive position, the 
focus of which is to accelerate the execution of Harmony`s safety and health    
strategy and to further improve its safety performance.                         
Alwyn has been an executive of Harmony for more than four years and is currently
the Chief Operating Officer: North Region (South Africa). He has more than 18   
years` experience in the mining industry and holds both a BSc Mining Engineering
and a BSc Industrial Engineering.                                               
Jaco Boshoff, currently Executive: New Business and Projects, has been appointed
Acting Chief Operating Officer: North Region, until a new appointment has been  
made in this position.  Jaco is a geologist with more than 15 years` experience 
in the mining industry.                                                         
Graham Briggs, chief executive officer, commented: "Safety is a priority at     
Harmony and achieving a safe, productive Harmony is something on which we will  
not compromise. We have a number of safety initiatives in place that have       
resulted in excellent safety achievements in recent years.  But, we need to do  
more. We have decided to intensify our safety efforts by appointing Alwyn, who  
has both an extensive understanding of the underground environment, but also the
leadership skills to achieve the step-change in safety performance that we are  
seeking. We adopted this approach several years ago at Kusasalethu. Our approach
here was clear - safety first, then production will follow. We are committed to 
implementing this across the group.                                             
Both Alwyn and Jaco are knowledgeable and well-experienced and we look forward  
to their contributions in their new and related roles."
