Harmony closes its Kusasalethu mine one day earlier than planned
for the festive season due to labour unrest

Harmony    Gold Mining Company Limited (‘Harmony’ or ‘the Company’)
advises    that it is closing its Kusasalethu mine near Carletonville
a day     earlier than planned for the festive season, following
violent   behavior and damage to mine infrastructure on surface.

Security at the mine and the SAPS are on the scene to control the
crowd and to further ensure the safety of all the employees. The
violence followed the suspension of 578 employees including some
contractors as a result of the participation of these employees in
an unprotected strike action on Saturday, 15 December 2012.

Tom Smith, chief operating officer of Harmony commented: "We have
made it clear that no violence will be tolerated and to ensure the
safety of our employees it has become imperative to close the
shaft until the labour issues have been resolved."
