Johannesburg. Tuesday, 2 August 2011. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited

year wage agreement with the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM), Solidarity and
UASA (collectively referred to as the "Unions") today.  The increases agreed to 
Minimum wages at entry level:      10%                                          
Category 5 to 8 employees:         8.5%

The wage agreement between Harmony and the Unions also include a profit share

expenditure from the Company`s South African assets.                            
Employees who participated in the strike will return to work later today.  The  
Company estimates that approximately 500kg of production was lost during the    
Graham Briggs, chief executive officer, commented: "It has been a tough         
negotiation process, but we have managed to reach agreement and avoid a         
protracted strike. We wish to thank the Unions for their understanding and also 
partnering with us in creating a sustainable mining industry."
