Update 1: Fire underground at Doornkop mine

Further to the statement issued this morning that an underground fire has
broken out at Doornkop gold mine, the company is pleased to advise that
rescuers have reached the eight employees located in the underground
refuge bay, and are bringing them to surface. Efforts continue 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 733m 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 fall of ground.

Operations at the mine have been suspended.

Further updates will be provided as these become available.

The company will host a briefing for the media at 13:00.
Address: Doornkop gold mine, near Soweto
