Fire underground at Doornkop mine

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (Harmony) advises that an underground
fire has broken out at the Doornkop gold mine, west of Johannesburg,
Gauteng Province. Contact has been made with eight employees in a refuge
bay; efforts continue to reach these employees and to establish the
whereabouts of a further nine employees who are currently unaccounted
for.

The fire was reported to have occurred in a stope adjacent to 192 level
haulage (some 1 733 m underground) at around 18:00 on Tuesday, 4 February
2014. Rescue teams were immediately dispatched underground, but access to
the affected area is being hampered by smoke and a subsequent fall of
ground.

Operations at the mine have been suspended.

Further updates will be provided as these become available.
