OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE DELIVERS INCREASE IN GOLD PRODUCTION
Johannesburg, Thursday, 12 October 2017. Harmony Gold Mining Company
Limited (“Harmony” and/or “the Company”) is pleased to advise that
gold production from its South African underground operations will
be 12% to 14% higher quarter on quarter, due to an increase in both
volumes and recovered grade. Gold production is 6% to 8% higher than
the corresponding quarter in the previous financial year.
The planned waste stripping of cutbacks 5 and 6 at Hidden Valley is
ahead of schedule and will be completed towards the end of November
2017. Despite the impact on Hidden Valley’s gold production,
Harmony’s total gold production increased by 3% to 5% quarter on
quarter and the corresponding quarter year on year.
Chief executive officer, Peter Steenkamp, commented: “Focus on
safety, operational excellence at our South African operations and
delivery at Hidden Valley in the second half of FY18 will ensure
that we remain on track to meet our production guidance”.
Harmony’s production results for the first quarter FY18 ended
30 September 2017 will be released on Tuesday, 7 November 2017.
