Update 3: Doornkop mine

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (“Harmony” and/or “the company”)
regrets to advise that rescue workers have located the bodies of eight of
the employees who were unaccounted following the fire at the Doornkop
gold mine. The search continues for the ninth employee.

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

At around 07:00 on 5 February, rescue workers located eight employees in
an underground refuge chamber, and they were brought to surface,
unharmed, by 11:00.

Harmony’s CEO Graham Briggs, the board and management extend their
condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the men who died.
