Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited
Registration number 1950/038232/06
Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa
ISIN: ZAE000015228
JSE share code: HAR
(“Harmony” and/or “the Company”)

Harmony takes steps to address Continued Listing Standard Notice
received from NYSE

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (“Harmony” or “the Company”)
advises that the Company (ticker on NYSE: HMY) was notified by the New
York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) on the 8th of September 2015 that the
trading price of the Harmony American Depositary Receipt (“ADR” or
“Harmony ADR”) has fallen below the NYSE’s continued listing standard.
The NYSE requires that a Harmony ADR’s minimum average closing price
should not be less than US$1.00 per ADR over a period of 30 consecutive
trading days.

The NYSE notification does not affect the Company’s Securities and
Exchange Commission reporting requirements and has no impact on the
Harmony’s business operations.

Under the NYSE’s rules, the Company has a period of six months from the
date of receipt of the NYSE notice to regain compliance with the
minimum share price requirement. During this period, the Harmony ADR
will continue to be traded on the NYSE, subject to the Company’s
compliance with other NYSE listing requirements.

Harmony intends to consider available alternatives - such as changing
the ratio between the ADRs and the underlying ordinary shares (also
referred to as a ‘reverse stock split’) - to cure the share price
deficiency and return to compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing
standard. Any action taken to ensure compliance is not expected to
affect Harmony’s market capitalization.
