Harmony’s production guidance for March 2013 quarter


Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (“Harmony” or the “Company”) announces that gold
production for the quarter ended March 2013 will be approximately 15% lower than the previous
quarter.

The temporary closure of Kusasalethu due to safety and security reasons, the ventilation challenge
at Phakisa and a slow start-up at the other operations post the festive season, resulted in lower
quarter on quarter gold production.

More than half of the employees at Kusasalethu have returned to the mine to date and
Kusasalethu is expected to return to normal production levels after June 2013. Kusasalethu’s and
Phakisa’s performance may further impact Harmony’s June 2013 production quarter.

Harmony’s results for the quarter ended 31 March 2013 will only be released via webcast on
Friday, 3 May 2013. Please refer to our website, http://www.harmony.co.za/investors, for dial-in
and webcast details.
