Public violence in vicinity of Harmony’s Kusasalethu mine

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited ("Harmony" or "the Company")
confirms that two employees were killed and a third person was
injured late yesterday afternoon in the vicinity of its
Kusasalethu mine, near Carletonville. The South African Police
Service (“SAPS”) has secured the scene of this tragic incident and
has commenced their investigation.

Kusasalethu?s operations are unaffected. Harmony, has, however, in
conjunction with the SAPS, increased its vigilance and security at
this mine to ensure the safety and security of employees.

“Harmony deplores the tragic and senseless loss of life in what
appears to be inter-union rivalry, not associated with the
operations of the mine. Management, the recognised unions and AMCU
have continued to engage in talks about normalising the situation
at Kusasalethu, since workers returned to work on the 25th of
August 2012 following the unprotected strike. AMCU has applied for
recognition and a process of membership verification is underway.
We urge all employees and the unions to refrain from violence and
follow the proper engagement processes that are in place,” said
Graham Briggs, chief executive officer of Harmony.
