ACQUISITION OF MPONENG, MINE WASTE SOLUTIONS CONCLUDED
Johannesburg, Monday, 14 September 2020. Harmony Gold Mining Company
Limited (“Harmony” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that all
conditions precedent relating to its acquisition of the Mponeng mine
(Mponeng) and Mine Waste Solutions (MWS) from AngloGold Ashanti Limited
(AngloGold Ashanti) (“the transaction”) have been met and accordingly
the two parties have now concluded the transaction.
Consequently, the transaction is scheduled to close in accordance with
the transaction agreement on 30 September 2020, upon which Harmony will
assume full ownership and operation of Mponeng, MWS and all other assets
and liabilities that form part of the transaction. Harmony will take
effective control of the assets as from the 1st of October 2020.
Aside from improving Harmony’s portfolio mix between surface and
underground operations, the transaction has the potential to improve the
group’s overall recovered grade and increase cash flow margins. Harmony
will only be in a position to estimate the full benefit of the integration
once its planning parameters have been applied and the Company has taken
ownership of the assets.
Harmony CEO Peter Steenkamp said: “This is a proud moment for Harmony,
further demonstrating our well-established belief in and commitment to
the sustainability of gold, our confidence in South Africa and our
determination to grow value for all of our stakeholders.”
Harmony will publish its financial results for the year ended 30 June
2020 on Tuesday, 15 September 2020. Please see Harmony’s website for
