All mineworkers returned safely to surface – no injuries

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited has announced that all of the 486
employees at the company’s Kusasalethu mine were brought to surface
safely on 22 February 2015.

This follows the successful operation undertaken by mine rescue teams
who were deployed underground to contain a fire, believed to have
started during maintenance work on a bulk air cooler on 75 level, and
to bring employees to surface. The fire started at around 09:40 on
Sunday 22 February some 2 300 metres underground.

Says Graham Briggs, CEO: “We are extremely grateful that all of our
colleagues have been brought to surface, without injury. This is to the
credit of our systems, employees, the unions, and mine management who
have worked tirelessly over the past 12 hours. I also want to extend
our thanks to mine rescue services for their efforts.”

Operations at the mine are currently suspended. Investigations into the
cause of the fire will be conducted jointly with the Department of
Mineral Resources and mine management.

Further information will be released as this becomes available.
