(Incorporated as a company with limited liability under the laws 
of Guernsey, Company Number 45108)
(Incorporated as an external company with limited liability under the laws 
of South Africa, Registration number 2007/0192231/10)

("Central Rand Gold" or the “Company”)


Further to the announcement released on 17 October 2012, Central
Rand Gold is pleased to announce that an agreement with the Trans
Caledon Tunnel Authority (“TCTA”) was executed on 26 November 2012
(“the Agreement”). Signature of the Agreement will give effect to
the donation of the pumps, previously purchased from international
technology group, Andritz Ritz (“the Pumps”), to TCTA for the
planned construction of the new High Density Sludge Treatment
Plant (“the Treatment Plant”) for the Central Basin. Construction
of the Treatment Plant is scheduled to commence on 8 January 2013.

The Pumps, together with the Treatment Plant, will provide the
means to contain the rising water table below the Environmental
Critical Level of 186 metres below surface (“mbs”), as measured at
the South West Vertical Shaft. In addition, the Pumps and the
Treatment Plant will further enable Central Rand Gold to gradually
dewater the Central Basin, at an incremental operating cost, to
the maximum operating depth of the Pumps of 400 mbs.

Despite the Pumps’ operating capacity being limited to 400 mbs,
the Agreement gives Central Rand Gold the option to undertake
further dewatering activities, which will allow the liberation of
the Company’s resources lying below the 400 mbs level, as future
mining operations may dictate.
