Harmony intersects highly significant copper gold mineralisation in PNG
exploration program

Johannesburg. 11 March 2015. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited advises
that   it   has    intersected   a   highly   significant   zone   of   copper-gold
mineralisation at the Kili Teke Exploration Prospect on one of its
exclusively owned exploration licence areas in Papua New Guinea.

Initial diamond drill testing of the Kili Teke prospect is currently
underway. Assays received from the first 4 holes have all returned broad
porphyry style copper gold intercepts with mineralisation extending to
surface. The mineralisation contains higher grade intervals of copper-
gold mineralisation up to 202m @ 0.74% Cu and 0.57g/t Au. At this stage
the mineralisation remains open through the drill pattern over 500m, and
at depth.    The following intercepts have been recorded:

       KTDD004:    38m @ 0.28% Cu, 0.17 g/t Au from surface
       KTDD005:    255m @ 0.24% Cu, 0.15 g/t Au from 146m
       KTDD006:    259m @ 0.35% Cu, 0.26 g/t Au from 172m
       KTDD007:    422m @ 0.55% Cu, 0.43 g/t Au, from 131m
       Including        202m @ 0.74% Cu, 0.57g/t Au, from 137m

 “Our current resources are finite and it is essential to have a project
pipeline that balances early-stage and more immediate prospects so as to
replace reserves mined,” said Harmony’s Chief Executive Officer, Graham
Briggs. “In an environment where there is very little being spent on
exploration and with the paucity of new major copper and gold discoveries,
the results coming from this grassroots prospect are very encouraging.
Given the extent of the surface copper-gold geochemical footprint yet to
be tested, there is potential to develop this find into a major copper-
gold deposit similar to Golpu, OK Tedi or Frieda River which have resource
cut-off grades of/around 0.2% Cu. New discoveries are one of the best
avenues to create shareholder value.”

The above drill results are extracts from the exploration results.
