Impact of new standards issued and amendments to existing standards not yet effective
At 30 June 2018, the following new accounting standards and amendments to existing standards were in issue but not yet effective:

                                                                                                                         Effective for annual periods
New standards and amendments                                                                                             commencing on or after:

IFRS 16 Leases - removes the classification of leases as operating or finance leases and requires all                    1 January 2019
 leases to be brought onto companies' balance sheets.                                                                   (early application permitted if IFRS 15 is also applied)
IFRIC 23 Uncertainty over Income Tax Treatments - addresses the determination of taxable profit                          1 January 2019
 (tax loss), tax bases, unused tax losses, unused tax credits and tax rates, when there is uncertainty
 over income tax treatments under IAS 12 Income Taxes. It specifically considers:                                     

Whether tax treatments should be considered collectively.

Assumptions for taxation authorities' examinations.

The determination of taxable profit (tax loss), tax bases, unused tax losses, unused tax credits and tax rates.

The effect of changes in facts and circumstances.

Annual improvements to IFRS 2015 - 2017 cycle makes the following amendments: IFRS 3 Business Combinations- requiring    1 January 2019
 the remeasurements of a previously held interest in a joint operation where control is obtained; IFRS 11 Joint
 Arrangements- clarifying that there is no remeasurement of previous interests upon obtaining joint control of a 
 business that is a joint operation; IAS 12 Income Taxes- clarifying that all income tax consequences of dividends 
 should be recognised in profit or loss regardless of how the tax arises; and IAS 23 Borrowing Costs- clarifying
 that a specific borrowing that remains outstanding after the related asset is ready for use, becomes part of general
 borrowings for purposes of interest capitalisation.                                                                  

IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts - requires insurance liabilities to be measured at a current fulfilment value and            1 January 2021
 provides a more uniform measurement and presentation approach for all insurance contracts. These requirements are 
 designed to achieve the goal of consistent, principle-based accounting for insurance contracts. IFRS 17 supersedes
 IFRS 4 Insurance Contracts as of 1 January 2021.
Amendments to IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements and IAS 28 Investments In Associates and Joint Ventures -        To be determined
 Sale or Contribution of Assets between an Investor and its Associate or Joint Venture deal with situations where 
 there is a sale or contribution of assets between an investor and its associates or joint ventures.                                                                         

The above standards and amendments are not expected to have a material impact for the Group, except IFRS 16 which is addressed below.

Impact of standards issued, effective and adopted by the Group
The Group adopted IFRS 9 Financial Instruments and IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers on 1 January 2018. As reported previously, the adoption of these
standards has an immaterial impact for the Group. The IFRS 9 impact was the reclassification of one financial asset, with a value of R30 million on 1 January 2018,
from loans and receivables, along with all available-for-sale investments, to equity instruments irrevocably designated as at fair value though other
comprehensive income (FVTOCI) per note 14. There is no reclassification of fair value changes on available-for-sale investments as these are already in equity. The
IFRS 15 impact was only on reclassifying the deferred income liability to contract liability per note 20. Prior years were also reclassified, albeit with an
immaterial impact.

Impact of new standard issued and neither effective nor adopted by the Group
IFRS 16 was issued in January 2016. It will result in almost all leases being recognised on the balance sheet, as the distinction between operating and finance
leases is removed. Under the new standard, an asset (the right to use the leased item) and a financial liability to pay rentals are recognised. The only exceptions
are short-term and low-value leases.

The standard will affect primarily the accounting for the Group's operating leases and embedded leases in service contracts. The Group has decided to adopt the
modified retrospective transition approach such that the cumulative effect of transition to IFRS 16 will be recognised in retained earnings and the comparative
period will not be restated.

As at the reporting date, 30 June 2018, the Group has non-cancellable operating leases with a net present value of approximately R0.2 billion and embedded leases
with an estimated net present value of approximately R0.2 billion, which will be capitalised together with any new leases entered into post the reporting period.
Capitalisation will result in an increase in net debt and property, plant and equipment on 1 January 2019.

The standard is mandatory for first interim periods within annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019. The Group does not intend to adopt the
standard before its effective date.

Changes to the segmental information
The following change to the segmental reporting was made following changes to internal reporting to the Executive Committee:

Following the move to more detailed reporting on purchase of concentrate activities, Amandelbult has been changed to exclude metal purchased from third parties.
Also the results for toll refining activity have been moved from purchased metal to other. These changes led to a corresponding change in the results for purchased

This resulted in the following changes to the comparative figures:

1 Liabilities for the return of metal comprise provisions arising from metal leasing transactions, the best estimate of which is determined with reference to the
  spot metal price at the end of the reporting period applied to the ounces of metal obtained under such leasing arrangements.
2 The contract liability represents a payment in advance for metal to be delivered in six months time. An amount is received monthly on a rolling six-month basis
  over five years of the contract ending in March 2023. Cash and cash equivalents are held as a hedging instrument in respect of the foreign exchange risk of this
  liability. This was previously a deferred income liability and has now been reclassified as a contract liability on adoption of IFRS 15 on 1 January 2018.

Letters of comfort have been issued to financial institutions to cover certain banking facilities. There are no encumbrances over Group assets.
The Group is the subject of various claims, which are individually immaterial and are not expected in aggregate, to result in material losses.
The Group has provided guarantees to certain financial institutions to cover various metal borrowing facilities. At 30 June 2018 these guarantees amounted to
R1,235 million (30 June 2017: R1,177 million; 31 December 2017: R1,108 million).

The Group has, in the case of some of its mines, provided the Department of Minerals Resources with guarantees that cover the difference between the closure costs
and amounts held in the environmental trusts. At 30 June 2018, these guarantees amounted to R2,450 million (30 June 2017: R2,619 million; 31 December 2017: R2,398

During the current period, the Group changed its estimate of the quantities of inventory based on the outcome of a physical count of in-process metals. The Group
runs a theoretical metal inventory system based on inputs, the results of previous counts and outputs. Due to the nature of in-process inventories being contained
in weirs, pipes and other vessels, physical counts only take place once per annum, except in the Precious Metals Refinery where the physical count is usually
conducted every three years. The Precious Metals Refinery physical count was conducted by exception in 2016 and is due to be performed again in 2019.

This change in estimate has had the effect of decreasing the value of inventory disclosed in the financial statements by R485 million (30 June 2017: increase of
R942 million; 31 December 2017: increase of R942 million). This results in the recognition of an after tax loss of R349 million (30 June 2017: after-tax gain of
R678 million; 31 December 2017: after-tax gain of R678 million).

Rustenburg deferred consideration
The Group's sale of the Rustenburg Mine completed on 1 November 2016. The present value of the deferred consideration was recognised as a level 3 financial asset
at fair value through profit or loss. Remeasurements arising from changes in estimates of cash flows and discount rate as well as the unwinding of the discount are
included in interest income and expense. The estimated cash flows were revised in June 2018 after the finalisation of relevant financial information by the
purchaser. This has given rise to an increase of R268 million (post-tax) in the present value of the deferred consideration, and the recognition of a gain in profit
or loss which is included in headline earnings.

Union Mine and Masa Chrome
The Group concluded a binding sale agreement for its 85% ownership interest in Union Mine and its 50.1% ownership interest in Masa Chrome Proprietary Limited to
Siyanda Resources. The agreement was signed on 14 February 2017 and most of the critical conditions precedent were met on 1 December 2017. As of this date, it was
highly probable that the sale would be concluded within 12 months, such that the criteria for reclassification as held for sale, in terms of IFRS 5 Non-current
Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations, were met. An attributable post-tax impairment loss of R996 million was recognised for the year ended 31 December
2017. A further attributable post-tax impairment loss of R12 million was recognised in January 2018, presently partly in scrapping of assets and partly in the loss
on disposal in the statement of comprehensive income.

The sale was effective as of 1 February 2018. A post-tax loss on disposal of R811 million was recognised, and is excluded from headline earnings. This brings the
total loss, including previously recognised impairments to R1.8 million.

Royal Bafokeng Platinum Limited
On 24 April 2018 the Group conducted an accelerated book build in respect of its shares in Royal Bafokeng Platinum Limited (RB Plat). 17 million shares were sold
at a price of R22.50 per share, which was at a discount to market price. The investment was irrevocably designated as at fair value through other comprehensive
income in terms of IFRS 9 Financial Instruments such that all gains and losses are recognised directly in equity and never recycled. This transaction consequently
had no earnings impact.

Bokoni Holdco and associated loan
The Group has a c.23% shareholding in Atlatsa as well as a 49% shareholding in Bokoni Holdco. Both investments are equity accounted, with the investment in
Atlatsa previously fully impaired and subsequently reporting losses which have not been equity accounted.

In light of the difficult market conditions and negative cash flows incurred by Bokoni Platinum Mine. The Group's equity interest continues to be fully impaired to
the extent that the balance is not otherwise reduced through equity accounted losses. During the first half of 2018, 49% of the funding provided to Bokoni mine for
care and maintenance (R50 million) was capitalised to the investment and reduced by equity accounted losses of an equal amount.

Atlatsa's ability to service its debt obligations in the context of the current market conditions, where Bokoni Platinum Mine is its main source of funding, is
doubtful. The Group has impaired all but R211 million in funding provided to Atlatsa. This resulted in an impairment loss for the period of R52 million, which is
included in headline earnings.

Bafokeng Ras'mone Platinum Mine (BRPM)
Due to a binding sale agreement that was signed on 4 July 2018 for the disposal of the Group's 33% interest in BRPM, see note 28, the equity-accounted BRPM
investment was impaired to the fair value of the transaction price (level 1 fair value) per the binding sale agreement. A post-tax impairment of R628 million 
has accordingly been recognised, and excluded from headline earnings.

Disposal of 33% equity-accounted interest in the Bafokeng Rasimone Platinum Mine
On 4 July 2018, the Group entered into a binding sale and purchase agreement (SPA) with a subsidiary of RB Plat for the sale of the Group's 33% interest in the
unincorporated BRPM joint venture. Owing to the signature of the SPA after the balance sheet date and the fact that certain approvals remain outstanding, the
investment was not classified as held for sale in terms of IFRS 5 Non-Current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations. The salient transaction terms are as
Initial purchase price to be settled in cash arising from a 5% capital raise by RB Plat, plus any capital contributions made by the Group to BRPM between the SPA
signature date and completion date. Deferred consideration for the remainder of the agreed R1.863 billion transaction price to be settled in three equal tranches
1.5; 2.5 and 2.5 years after the effective date, with early settlement permitted. The deferred consideration will escalate at the RB Plat cost of borrowing plus a 
premium of 2%. RB Plat has the option of settling the deferred consideration either in cash or by the issue of additional RB Plat shares to the Group at each
payment date.

Anglo Platinum ventures with Public Investment Corporation
On 17 July 2018, AP Ventures (APV) was launched as an independent venture capital fund to invest in Platinum Group metals (PGMs). AP Ventures is backed by Anglo
American Platinum Limited and South Africa's Public Investment Corporation (PIC) who have committed a total of USD200 million, USD100 million each, as joint
partners. AAPL will sell its current Platinum Group Metals investments, valued at USD60 million, to APV as part of its contribution. APV is a joint venture, as the
parties require 75% of the voting power for decision making, and will be equity-accounted when the agreement becomes effective with AAPL's share of profit or loss
of APV recognised in profit or loss.

The Board approved a dividend of R3.74 per share on 19 July 2018.

"Anglo American Platinum has produced another strong set of operational and financial results. Our commitment to ensuring safe production has delivered value and
the Company continues to improve more profitable own-mine production, with total PGM production up 4%. We did however lose one of our colleagues to multiple bee
stings and again have sent our condolences to the friends, family and colleagues of Mr Maimela. Our focus will remain on the elimination of fatalities.

We've seen strong production from our operations, with the world-class Mogalakwena operation increasing production 19% in H1 2018. The turnaround plan at
Amandelbult is progressing and the joint venture portfolio had a strong performance, with record production from Mototolo and Kroondal. This strong production
performance, combined with strict cost control led to a further 3% decrease in unit costs.

Despite the temporary build up in work in progress inventory, due to maintenance and the scheduled Mortimer smelter rebuild in Q2, the Company generated operating
free cash flow of R1.3 billion, reducing net debt by R2.3 billion and moving to a net cash position of R0.5 billion.

We have been busy and in the last six months, announced a number of transactions. As part of the simplification of the portfolio, we have sold 8.8% of our equity
holding in Royal Bafokeng Platinum, and agreed the sale of our 33% interest in BRPM to them. In support of our strategic objective of growing demand for PGM's, we
have supported the launch of AP Venture funds, with the PIC, together committing USD200 million to stimulate demand for PGMs. Finally, to own and operate the best
assets, we have signed an SPA to acquire Glencore's 39% stake in the Mototolo JV, which will unlock significant synergies with Der Brochen.

Work is underway to extract value at existing operations through world best operating practices and modernisation, through people and innovation; and finally,
project studies continue to assess how to unlock the most value from Mogalakwena.

Anglo American Platinum remains committed to delivering PGM industry leading returns, and has increased EBITDA by 70% to R6.8 billion, resulting in an increase in
EBITDA margin to 21%; an increase in ROCE to 22% and the Board has declared an interim dividend of R1.0 billion. This is very much a stronger business today as a
result of the actions we have taken in recent years and I'm pleased to say that we see even more value that we can unlock ahead of us."


Anglo American Platinum's strategy over the past five years has focused on restructuring and repositioning the portfolio in response to structural changes in the
platinum group metals (PGM) industry. The execution of this strategy is essentially complete and has simplified and improved the business by reducing its operating
mines from eighteen to seven, decreased overheads by 50% and headcount by 60%, whilst maintaining PGM production. The portfolio is now positioned with 70% of
production in H1 of the primary industry cost curve (excluding BRPM), with PGM industry leading cost control outperforming input cost inflation, improved operating
free cash flows and delivering a return on capital employed of 22%. The balance sheet has been de-levered with net debt reducing from R14.8 billion in 2014, to a
net cash position of R0.5 billion in H1 2018, and a base dividend was reintroduced in 2017.

The next chapter of the strategy has been formulated with the view to maximise margins, returns and cash flows within a changing market and competitor landscape. We
continue to see material upside value in the Company, with work underway to quantify the potential from existing operations, and growth options of our world class

Value proposition

Anglo American Platinum has a differentiated value proposition through:

- The quality of our long-life assets from which we continually strive to extract full value;
- Demonstrated capital discipline that has resulted in balance sheet strength which enables flexibility to be responsive to opportunities through the cycle and
  withstand potential downward pressure; and
- Ensuring the long-term sustainability of the business by leading market development to grow demand for PGMs, progressing select prioritised project studies to
  ensure optionality is maintained, and by modernising our organisation.

The Company's focus is on driving the value and earnings of the business, by taking the operational performance of the operations to world best practice, investing
in growth optionality across the portfolio, and developing the market for PGMs.

Anglo American Platinum seeks to deliver these strategic priorities in a safe, values driven and socially responsible way.

Simplified mining portfolio

The quality and long life of our mineral assets are the foundation of our leadership position in the industry. We focus on operating and investing in the assets
that offer the most attractive long-term value creation potential, that are positioned in the lower half of the cash cost curve and that are, or have potential to
be mechanised.

We have further simplified the ownership structure of our mining portfolio, with greater direct influence over the asset operational performance as well as being
able to focus capital allocation to these assets. This will be achieved as the sales and purchase agreement was signed to acquire Glencore's interest in Mototolo,
enabling a seamless transition into Der Brochen. In addition, Anglo American Platinum has signed an SPA to dispose of the 33% stake in the BRPM JV to our joint
venture partners Royal Bafokeng Platinum. The non-strategic minority interest in the remaining 2.6% of the listed shares of Royal Bafokeng Platinum Limited will be
sold following the sale of 8.8% in April 2018, which generated gross proceeds of R390 million.

Disciplined capital allocation

Our value-focused approach to capital allocation underpins our preferred portfolio by prioritising the following:

- Maintaining asset integrity, ensuring a strong balance sheet and paying base dividends to our shareholders;
- Discretionary capital allocation to the best value outcome, by investing in fast pay-back projects and profitable growth;
- Thereafter, capital will be allocated between further increasing balance sheet strength or additional returns to shareholders; and
- Disciplined value-added growth projects to enhance margins and additional returns

Anglo American Platinum has rebuilt its balance sheet to a net cash position, supported by strong underlying cash generation, despite the current pricing and global
economic environment. In line with the capital allocation framework, Anglo American Platinum continues to progress project studies to assess the expansion potential
at our key operations, Mogalakwena and Der Brochen and determine how we extract the most value from these assets, considering market and capital constraints.

Mogalakwena expansion

Mogalakwena remains the world's most significant PGM operation and the only major open-pit operation globally. The mine is in the lowest quartile of the primary PGM
producer cash cost curve, and as a palladium-rich resource, will benefit given the current and medium term structural deficits in the palladium market.

The project opportunity studies have identified that a third concentrator expansion at Mogalakwena will significantly improve the NPV of the asset, has value-
enhancing returns, with optimal value being achieved with a concentrator size of between 9-12 million tonnes per annum. This would lead to an incremental c.270,000
palladium ounces and c.250,000 platinum ounces. The concept and prefeasibility studies have commenced and the capital expenditure will be quantified once the
project studies have advanced further.

Mototolo / Der Brochen

As announced on SENS, Anglo American Platinum has signed an SPA with Glencore to purchase its 39% interest in the Mototolo joint venture.

The acquisition enables significant synergies between Mototolo and the adjacent Der Brochen resource, with project studies underway to assess the most valuable
options which could include both replacement and growth options, creating a major PGM hub for the Company. By combining the Mototolo JV area with the downdip and
adjacent Der Brochen resource, the life-of-mine is also significantly extended from the current c.five-year life of mine, to beyond a thirty-year life of mine.

Extracting full value from our assets

We are working to reset operational performance benchmarks across our business, recognising the further latent potential that exists in our operations,
notwithstanding the material improvements we have made over the last few years. Whether it's the hours one gets out of a truck or shortening the lost time between
shift changes or failures, or to completely re-think long established practices, Anglo American Platinum believes there is substantial additional value to be gained
by focussing on best practice benchmarks and further improvements through modernisation and technical innovation.

Developing the market for PGMs

Market development is a key priority where latent demand across jewellery, investment and industrial segments remains a large and growing opportunity.

The Company's Platinum Group Metals Development Fund has enjoyed great success and built a strong track record. We have now taken the decision to separate the
fund's activities into an independent structure, AP Ventures, which will attract additional outside investment allowing it to increase the scale of its activities.

The launch of AP Ventures is an exciting development which will support the growth of PGM technologies and is expected to increase PGM demand from the industrial
segment. Through this transaction, we are hoping to facilitate the application of cutting-edge technological advances and broad innovative thinking to address the
major global challenges. It is a clear example of the use of collaborative partnerships to connect people for the betterment of the industry and we are grateful to
have had the support of the Public Investment Corporation in bringing the Funds to fruition.

In addition, we continue to also drive PGM demand through:

Engaging and collaborating in the shaping of the strategy and activities of the Platinum Guild International (PGI), focusing on jewellery demand creation, and the
- World Platinum Investment Council (WPIC), focusing on investment demand creation;
- Spearheading new initiatives which fall outside the mandates of the industry funded entities, by expanding and formalising an approach to primary R&D with the
  intention of developing PGM based solutions to global issues; identifying bottlenecks and barriers to increased use/sales of PGMs and developing solutions in
  partnership with AP Ventures funds, the PGI & WPIC; and
- Focus on fuel cell development and the hydrogen economy through advocacy, investment in refuelling infrastructure and anti-diesel lobbying.



Tragically there was one work related loss of life in H1 2018. Mr Johannes Maimela died of multiple bee stings at Dishaba Mine in March 2018, and our deepest
condolences go to Mr Maimela's family, friends and colleagues.

Management has committed to maintaining safe operations and the benefits of safe production are producing results. Safety indicators highlight the significant
improvements that have been made, with total recordable injury frequency rate (TRCFR) the lowest on record, down 42% to 2.93 per one million hours worked (H1 2017:
5.08). This can be attributed to the implementation of the revised safety, health and environment strategy and the focus on reporting and learning from high
potential incidents.


Anglo American Platinum remains committed to the fight against HIV, tuberculosis (TB) and the wellness of employees. The Company aspires to the UN targets of
90:90:90 with respect to HIV. These targets aim at diagnosing 90% of all HIV-positive persons, provide antiretroviral therapy (ART) for 90% of those diagnosed, and
achieve viral suppression for 90% of those treated. AAP achieved 80% "know-your status" and 86% on ART in 2017. The Company remains confident that by intensifying
efforts and encouraging the participation of employees at all levels of the organisation, these levels can further improve. Our HIV interventions, together with
parallel proactive TB interventions are contributing to a consistent reduction in TB incidence rates - reducing 53% to 271 per 100,000 and well below the national
average of 781 per 100,000. These efforts highlight the significant reduction in TB related deaths - reducing from over 60 in 2013 to 3 so far in 2018.


Anglo American Platinum has again had no major or material environmental incidents (categorised as Level 4 to 5), and has had no Level 3 incidents since 2013.
Through applying an operational risk management process and identifying critical controls to manage priority unwanted environmental events, the Company ensures that
environmental risk is appropriately managed. Minor environmental incidents are analysed and investigated to learn from, and implement remedial actions to prevent

Rustenburg Base Metals Refinery (RBMR) and Precious Metals Refinery (PMR) are the key operations to remain ISO14001 certified as they are responsible for product
delivery and complying with external requirements. As a result, PMR was certified against the new ISO 14001:2015 standard in October 2017 and RBMR was certified in
June 2018. All other operations will focus on implementing the new ISO14001:2015 standards and best practice.

The Company continues to focus on reducing demand for fresh water and energy. Improving energy efficiency also drives reduced carbon emissions. The focus on water
efficiency depends on two key measures: technology to reduce total water demand; and reduced dependency on potable water to ensure water availability for
surrounding stakeholders. To minimise water usage at operations, non-potable or effluent water is the priority source.

Anglo American Platinum continues to make considerable progress in the management of hazardous and non-hazardous waste sent to landfill as a result of several
reduce, re-use and recycling activities. For the five months to end-May there was a 64% reduction in the total tonnes of waste to landfill compared to the same
period last year.

Social and community investment

We continue to engage with stakeholders as part of our mandate to enhance the social license to operate and endeavor to make a lasting positive contribution to
communities in which we operate. Several projects have been implemented as part of our commitment to social labour plans, including the signature of a service level
agreement with Hall Core Mapela to supply water to 42 villages of Mapela, which will deliver potable water to over 70,000 people. We are constructing administration
blocks and additional classrooms in four schools, completed water and sanitation facilities in eight schools, with another three schools under construction.

Food production remains a focus, and the communities in which we are delivering water projects are also encouraged to start food gardens. The Amandelbult, St George
and Kalkfontein farming projects are thriving and over 30 jobs are sustained on these farms. All our initiatives are contributing towards the achievement of the
National Development Plan of our Country and the Integrated Development Plans of the host Municipalities and are done in partnership with our stakeholders.

The Company has spent R86 million so far in H1 2018 on Social Labour Plan projects, equating to 2% of NOPAT, and in line with plan. This spend will more than double
by the year end.

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) awards

The Company continues to operate as a sustainable and socially responsible business. The metals that are mined are utilised to enable solutions to some global
problems such as air quality, growing resource scarcity and improving wellness through medication and technology. As a result, the Company is gaining global
recognition for its ESG practices:
- Second mining company globally in the ISS oekom Corporate Responsibility Review 2018;
- Top 30 in the JSE Responsible Investment Index since inception;
- Inclusion in the FTSE4Good index since June 2015; and
- Third in the Institutional Investor EMEA Executive Team 2018 awards for best ESG SRI metrics


Operational performance

As a result of improved operational efficiencies across the own-managed mine portfolio, and strong performances from the joint venture portfolio, PGM production for
H1 2018 increased, despite the closure of unprofitable production from Bokoni and Maseve in H2 2017, which does not form part of H1 2018 production.

Total PGM production (expressed as platinum, palladium, rhodium, gold, iridium and ruthenium metal in concentrate) was up 4% to 2,583,800 ounces in H1 2018 (H1
2017: 2,484,300 ounces). Platinum production was up 4% to 1,233,400 ounces (H1 2017: 1,189,100 ounces), while palladium increased 5% to 813,200 ounces (H1 2017:
774,900 ounces).

The 4E built-up head grade of 3.52g/tonne was 2% higher due to higher grade from Mogalakwena, which targeted a particularly high grade area at Zwartfontein pit, as
well as higher underground grades at Amandelbult.

Own managed mines

Own managed mines (Mogalakwena, Amandelbult and Unki) increased total PGM production by 14% to 1,166,700 ounces (H1 2017: 1,021,100 ounces). Platinum production by
own-managed mines increased 14% to 534,500 ounces (H1 2017: 467,900 ounces) and palladium increased by 15% to 434,600 ounces (H1 2017: 377,800 ounces).


Mogalakwena produced a record 641,400 PGM ounces up 19% (H1 2017: 538,600 PGM ounces), with platinum production up 21% to 272,900 ounces (H1 2017: 225,800 ounces)
and palladium up 18% to 295,500 ounces (H1 2017: 251,200 ounces). Total production included production from the Baobab concentrator plant of 48,700 PGM ounces (H1
2017: 39,100 PGM ounces).

Mogalakwena increased production through mining a higher-grade area within the current mining cut as per the mine plan, as well as optimisation of the North
concentrator plant which led to improved concentrator throughput and recoveries. Material was mined from the Zwartfontein pit which also contributed to higher
grade, but at a lower recovery. Total tonnes mined remained constant year-on-year, but tonnes milled increased 6% and the 4E built-up head grade increased 10% to
3.39g/t from 3.07g/t in H1 2017.

Mogalakwena contributed R2.1 billion in economic free cash flow, up from R812 million in H1 2017. The mine delivered EBITDA of R3.9 billion at a 45% margin, up from
37% in H1 2017. Return on Capital Employed increased to 29% from 16% (on an annualised basis).

Cash operating costs (costs after allowing for off-mine smelting and refining activities) increased 9% to R4.7 billion. Cash operating costs including capitalised
waste stripping increased by 14% to R5.4 billion from R4.7 billion.

Cash operating costs per platinum ounce decreased 10% to R17,224 from R19,122 in H1 2017 owing to increased mining volume. Cash operating costs per PGM ounce (metal
in concentrate) was R7,328 against R8,018 per ounce in H1 2017.

All-in sustaining costs (AISC) (includes operating costs as defined above, all sustaining capital expenditure, capitalised waste stripping and allocated marketing
and market development costs net of by product revenue) per platinum ounce sold was USD253 per platinum ounce, down from USD687 per platinum ounce in the previous

During 2018, improvements in mining efficiencies and concentrator performance resulted in mine plan changes, causing differences between the sequencing of ore and
waste mining. Improvements in shovel and truck performances resulted in an increase in waste tonnes mined, the bulk of which was capitalised waste. This led to a
decrease in ore mined over the period and coupled with higher milled volumes, resulted in the drawdown from ore stockpiles (which were previously guided to
increase). The net impact from these changes for H1 2018 was a 6% increase in unit costs for Mogalakwena.

The current mining profiles are expected to continue in H2 of 2018 which will result in an overall higher unit cost for the mine for 2018 compared to 2017, which
was lower due to the benefit of measuring R1.6billion of ore stockpiles. The revised medium term mine plan will enable greater minng of ore and will reduce overall
unit costs in future years.

Mogalakwena targeted a high-grade area in the Zwartfontein pit, which led to an increase in grade in H1 2018. This will normalise in H2 2018 which will result in an
annual average of grade 3.18g/t. High grade production was planned for H1 2018, to get early ounces prior to the planned smelter rebuilds in Q2 and Q3 2018. Total
production from Mogalakwena in 2018 is expected to be approximately 1.15 million PGM ounces (around 480,000 platinum ounces).

Total PGM production at Amandelbult increased by 9% to 432,700 PGM ounces (H1 2017: 397,500 PGM ounces). Platinum production increased 8% 220,200 ounces (H1 2017:
203,700 ounces) and palladium production increased 10% to 102,900 (H1 2017: 93,600 ounces).

Production increased due to the implementation of the operational turnaround of the asset. The immediately stopeable ore reserves (IMS) at Dishaba have increased
and productivity improvements have been implemented.

As development at Dishaba continues, surface tonnes supplement underground production, and led to a 5% increase in tonnes milled. Despite the increased surface
sources in the ore mix, the 4E built-up head grade increased 3% to 3.91 g/t (H1 2017: 3.81 g/t) due to increases in both underground reef ore sources (UG2 and
Merensky) and as a result of reduced dilution.

Production from the chrome plant increased by 46%, yielding 403,000 tonnes of chrome concentrate on a 100% basis (H1 2017: 276,000 chrome tonnes). This is in part
due to 8% increase in plant feed as well as the chrome interstage implementation, increasing the plant yield to 16%. (H1 2017: 12%). Amandelbult is moving towards
a primarily UG2 mine. The chrome recovery capacity is being extended to the Merensky Concentrator by construction of two further modules at a capex cost of R530
million, which will be commissioned in July 2019, and will result in an incremental 360,000 tonnes of chrome production per annum.

Despite a fall in the chrome price during H1 2018 to an average of USD200/tonne, from an average of USD242/tonne in the comparative period, the increased volume and low
production cost enabled the Amandelbult chrome operation to generate attributable economic free cash flow of R409 million (H1 2017: R261 million).

Amandelbult delivered R159 million in economic free cash flow from its mining and chrome activities, up from negative R541 million in H1 2017. The mine delivered
EBITDA of R1.0 billion at a 17% margin, up from 3% in H1 2017. Return on Capital Employed increased to 16% from negative 5%.

Cash operating costs increased by 10% to R4.8 billion (H1 2017: R4.4 billion), mainly due to mining inflation, chrome plant operational costs and costs relating to
the future replacement of production from Tumela Upper to Dishaba Lower UG2. Cash operating costs per platinum ounce was flat year-on-year at R21,701 (H1 2017
R21,596) owing to higher volume. The measurement of run-of-mine ore stockpiles at Amandelbult as at 30 June 2018, resulted in a 2% reduction in unit cost for the

Cash operating costs per PGM ounce (metal in concentrate) was R11,041 against R11,070 per ounce in H1 2017. AISC per platinum ounce sold was USD891 per ounce, down
from USD1,183 in the previous year.

Total production from Amandelbult in 2018 is expected to increase to between 900,000 to 9 240,000 PGM ounces (c.460,000 - 470,000 platinum ounces).


Unki mine in Zimbabwe produced a record 92,600 PGM ounces, an increase of 9% (H1 2017: 85,100 ounces). Platinum production increased 8% to 41,400 ounces (H1 2017:
38,400 ounces) and palladium production increased 10% to 36,200 ounces (H1 2017: 33,000 ounces).

Production increased due to an increase in tonnes milled, up 6% due to improved throughput and recovery. The 4E built-up head grade stayed relatively flat at
3.47g/t (H1 2017: 3.48g/t).

Unki increased economic free cash flow to R311 million from R85 million due to improved performance and the sale of treasury bills of R100 million.

The mine delivered EBITDA of R424 million at a 33% margin, up from 21% in H1 2017. Return on Capital Employed increased to 11% from 2% in H1 2017.

Cash operating costs were up 6% to R0.9 billion. The mine, being a dollar denominated operation, benefitted from the strengthening of the rand which increased 6% to
R12.38 from R13.24. Cash operating costs increased by R35 million as ore stock ahead of the concentrator, which was built-up during maintenance at the concentrator
in H2 2017, was depleted in full in H1 2018. Cash operating cost per platinum ounce rose 2% to R23,477 from R22,967 in H1 2017.

Cash operating costs per PGM ounce (metal in concentrate) was R10,511 against R10,360 per ounce in H1 2017. AISC (excluding the receipts of treasury bills) per
platinum ounce sold was USD272 per ounce, down from USD808 in H1 2017.

The Unki smelter, a project in execution, is expected to be completed in Q3 2018 at a total cost of R650 million, with R162 million of the project capital incurred
in H1 2018.

Total PGM production from Unki in 2018 is expected to increase slightly to 180,000 PGM ounces (previously 170,000 PGM ounces) including c.80,000 platinum ounces
(previously 75,000 ounces).

Joint ventures (own-mined and purchase of concentrate)

Total PGM production from joint ventures (Mototolo, Modikwa and Kroondal inclusive of both own-mined and purchase of concentrate production) increased 10% to
607,200 PGM ounces (H1 2017: 550,100 PGM ounces). Platinum production increased 11% to 274,300 ounces (H1 2017: 246,600 ounces) and palladium production increased
10% to 177,000 ounces (H1 2017: 161,500 ounces).

Mototolo PGM production increased 26% to 157,200 PGM ounces (H1 2017: 124,800) due to higher built-up head grade and additional production rolled over from H2 2017
which was toll-treated at Bokoni due to the tailings dam rehabilitation. Platinum production increased 25% to 72,600 ounces (H1 2017: 57,800 ounces) and palladium
production increased 30% to 45,500 ounces (H1 2017: 35,100 ounces).

Modikwa PGM production increased 6% to 158,000 PGM ounces (H1 2017: 149,700 ounces) due to additional ore purchased from Mototolo. Platinum production increased 9%
to 62,800 ounces (H1 2017: 57,800 ounces) and palladium production increased 2% to 58,100 ounces (H1 2017: 56,700 ounces).

Kroondal PGM production increased 6% to 292,000 PGM ounces (H1 2017: 275,700 ounces), due to an increase in underground production efficiencies as well as improved
concentrator throughput. Platinum production increased 6% to 138,900 ounces (H1 2017: 131,000 ounces) and palladium production increased 5% to 73,500 ounces (H1
2017: 69,700 ounces).

Purchase of concentrate from associates

PGM production from associates decreased by 28% to 183,100 PGM ounces (H1 2017: 254,800 ounces), largely due to the removal of unprofitable production from Bokoni
which was placed on care and maintenance in Q3 2017. Platinum production from associates decreased by 22% to 106,500 ounces (H1 2017: 137,200 ounces) and palladium
production decreased 37% to 43,800 ounces (H1 2017: 69,400 ounces).

BRPM PGM production increased 6% to 183,100 PGM ounces (H1 2017: 173,000) following improved underground mining efficiencies and the ongoing ramp up of the
Styldrift project. Platinum production increased 7% to 106,500 ounces (H1 2017: 99,300 ounces), and palladium production increased 5% to 43,800 ounces (H1 2017:
41,500 ounces).

On 5th July 2018, Anglo American Platinum announced it had entered into an agreement to sell its 33% interest in the BRPM JV to RB Plat. When conditions precedent
are complete, material from BRPM will be treated as third party purchase of concentrate and not as a purchase of concentrate from associates.

Purchase of concentrate from third parties

Union mine was sold to Siyanda Resources ("Siyanda") on 1 February 2018, from which date Union production was treated as third party purchase of concentrate. As a
result, PGM production decreased 85% to 23,100 PGM ounces, and platinum and palladium decreased by 85% to 11,600 ounces and 5,200 ounces respectively.

Purchase of PGM concentrate from third parties increased by 20% to 603,800 PGM ounces (H1 2017: 503,300 PGM ounces) due to an increase in purchased production from
Union mine. This is despite a reduction in production from Sibanye Stillwater down 5% to 445,100 PGM ounces and a reduction in production from Maseve which was
placed on care and maintenance in Q4 2017. Platinum purchase of concentrate increased 18% to 306,500 ounces (H1 2017: 259,800 ounces) and palladium purchase of
concentrate increased 17% to 152,600 ounces (H1 2017: 130,300 ounces).

Refined production & sales volume

Refined PGM production decreased by 5% to 2,177,200 PGM ounces (H1 2017: 2,294,100 PGM ounces). Platinum refined production decreased 3% to 1,075,300 ounces (H1
2017: 1,105,600 ounces), and palladium refined production decreased 6% to 686,500 ounces (H1 2017: 726,500 ounces).

Refined production in H1 2018 was lower due to the removal of unprofitable production from Bokoni and Maseve, which were both placed on care and maintenance in H2
2017 (H1 2017: 84,600 PGM ounces and 41,000 platinum ounces).

In addition, refined PGM production for H1 2018 was lower than M&C production (including c.140,000 platinum ounces) as work-in-progress inventory was built up. This
was due to the planned rebuild of Mortimer smelter which was completed during H1 and scheduled maintenance on the processing assets. It is expected that the backlog
of work-in-progress inventory will largely be processed by the year end despite the planned partial rebuild of Polokwane Smelter in Q3 2018, the commissioning of
the Unki smelter in Q3 2018, which will marginally increase pipeline inventory, and commissioning of the Convertor Plant Phase A module (ACP).

As per normal practices, the annual stock count was completed in H1 2018 which resulted in the first net stock loss since 2010, impacting mainly palladium and
rhodium. As a result, PGM refined production for 2018 will be lower than metal in concentrate production.

PGM sales volumes from mining increased by 3% to 2,508,800 PGM ounces (H1 2017: 2,432,600 PGM ounces). Platinum sales volumes (excluding trading activities) were
constant at 1,117,100 ounces (H1 2017: 1,119,300 ounces) and palladium sales volumes increased by 15% to 733,500 ounces (H1 2017: 636,200 ounces).

Total sales volumes were made up of refined production, supplemented by drawing down on refined inventory levels of c.41,000 platinum and 47,000 palladium ounces.
In addition to sales from mining activities, trading activities of c.66,000 platinum ounces and 53,000 palladium ounces took place during the period. Refined
inventory is expected to be built up in H2 2018 and return to normalised levels which will impact sales volumes.


H1 2018 overview

The Company has had a strong financial performance in H1 2018 with a 70% increase in EBITDA to R6.8 billion with group EBITDA margin increasing to 21% (H1 2017:
15%). Headline earnings increased to R3.4 billion from R0.7 billion reported in H1 2017 and headline earnings per share (HEPS) of 1,282 cents increased 350%
compared to H1 2017 (285 cents) due to the Company's improved operational performance and improvement in the rand basket price for the period.

The balance sheet position has strengthened substantially, with a net cash position of R0.5 billion at 30 June 2018, a R2.3 billion improvement from a net debt
position of R1.8 billion at 31 December 2017. The improvement was after a cash dividend to shareholders of R0.9 billion and was driven by free cashflow from
operations of R1.3 billion, as well as R0.9 billion of net proceeds on asset sales (including R0.4 billion from the disposal of Union mine and R0.4 billion from the
sale of shares in RB Plat). The customer prepayment increased by R1.1 billion due to the impact of a weaker rand at the end of H1 2018 compared to 31 December 2017
as well as higher palladium and rhodium prices, bringing the total customer prepayment to R5.7 billion.

Disposals and acquisitions

On 1 February 2018, the sale of the Company's 85% interest in Union Mine to Siyanda Resources became effective. The Group realised an attributable, after tax loss
on disposal of R0.8 billion, which together with prior impairments recognised brings the total attributable, after tax loss on divesting from this operation to R1.8
billion. The loss on disposal is excluded from headline earnings.

Anglo American Platinum continues to fund Bokoni mine's care and maintenance expenditure. R52 million in impairment losses were recognised in respect of funding
Atlatsa's 51% share and is thus not an impairment of assets but a loan write off, which is included in basic and headline earnings.

On 24 April 2018, the Company disposed of 17.3 million shares in RB Plats for R0.4 billion. There was no earnings impact as the investment was classified at fair
value through other comprehensive income.

On 6 July 2018, Anglo American Platinum entered into a binding sale and purchase agreement with RB Plat for the sale of the Company's 33% interest in the BRPM JV.
The sale is inter alia subject to RB Plat shareholder and lender approval, and the investment was accordingly not classified as held-for-sale at 30 June 2018.
Approximately R0.2 billion of the transaction price will be settled in cash, upfront, with the remainder to be settled in three equal tranches, attracting interest,
and commencing 18 months after the effective date. The deferred amount may be settled in cash or in the equivalent value of RB Plat shares. Owing to the signing of
the binding sale and purchase agreement, the Group impaired its equity-accounted investment in BRPM by R0.6 billion (post-tax) to bring it in line with the
transaction price. This impairment is excluded from headline earnings.

Sales revenue

Net sales revenue rose 23% to R33.5 billion from R27.3 billion in the first half of 2017 on the back of higher palladium, rhodium and chrome sales volumes due to
the ramp-up of the new chrome plant at Amandelbult. The US dollar basket price was 26% higher at USD2,318 per platinum ounce sold compared to USD1,843 in
H1 2017. The sales price achieved on all metals improved, except for platinum at USD932 per ounce (H1 2017: USD957). Palladium was up 29%, rhodium up 113%, nickel
up 41% and copper up 16%. The rand strengthened to an average of R12.38 (H1 2017: R13.24), eroding some of the price benefit, which resulted in a 18% higher rand
basket price of R28,695 per platinum ounce sold (H1 2017: R24,400).

Cost of sales

Cost of sales increased by 17%, from R24.5 billion in H1 2017 to R28.6 billion mainly due to higher purchase of concentrate costs, driven by higher prices as well
as the purchase of metals for trading activities, while the planned rebuild and maintenance of processing assets takes place. Following the sale of Union operations
in February 2018, the Company has higher purchase of concentrate costs and lower on-mine costs due to the purchase of concentrate from Siyanda.

Cash on-mine costs (mines and concentrators) decreased by R0.3 billion mainly due to the Union exit, partly offset by input cost inflation and higher tonnes milled
at Mogalakwena. Processing costs rose R0.4 billion to R3.4 billion, a 12% increase due to inflationary increases, higher insurance costs and coal price increases.

Costs for the purchase of concentrate increased to R12.9 billion from R9.6 billion, principally due higher metal prices and additional volumes purchased from
Siyanda following the sale of Union, offset by no volumes from Bokoni since being placed on care and maintenance.

Other costs increased 24% to R1.6 billion (H1 2017: R1.3 billion), primarily due to higher costs of transporting metal (R0.1 billion) given the increased volume of
chrome concentrate produced and increased royalties as a result of higher revenue (R0.2 billion).

Owing to a change in mining approach, run-of-mine ore stockpile material to the value of R1.8 billion was measured at 31 December 2017. The ore stockpile material
has increased marginally at 30 June 2018, impacting cost of sales by R0.1 billion.

Through higher production, especially from Mogalakwena, unit costs are down 3% at R19,571 per produced platinum ounce (H1 2017: R20,105). Unit cost of PGM
production was R8,954 per ounce, 3% lower than the prior year (H1 2017: R9,265 per ounce). AISC of USD829 per ounce (H1 2017: USD1,036 per ounce) against an
achieved platinum price of USD932 per ounce reflects stringent cost management, higher by-product revenue and operational efficiencies.

Earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA)

Reported EBITDA increased 70% to R6.8 billion from R4.0 billion in the first half of 2017. The movements in EBITDA were due to:
- Uncontrollable items, including inflation, US dollar metal prices and the rand/US dollar exchange rate, improving earnings by R2.0 billion, with stronger metal
  prices of R3.6 billion, partially offset by inflation contributing R0.6 billion and a stronger rand R1.0 billion.
- Controllable items - volume and costs - contributed R0.6 billion. Costs reduced mainly due to the disposal of Union, partially offset by the impact of a R0.5
  billion stock-count loss compared to a R0.9 billion stock count gain in H1 2017. EBITDA further benefitted from Bokoni being placed on care and maintenance and the
  disposal of Pandora both in Q4 2017 resulting in lower cost incurred for associates (R0.2 billion).

The Company EBITDA margin was 21%, up from 15% in H1 2017. The EBITDA margin for own mining operations was 34% (H1 2017: 22%), on mined portion of joint ventures
23%, normalised for the Helena tailings dam flow through from 2017 (27% actual) (H1 2017: 23%), while the margin on purchased concentrate was 11% (H1 2017: 11%).

Capital expenditure

Disciplined capital allocation remains a priority, aimed at maintaining asset integrity and adding value, not additional volume.

Capital expenditure for the first half of 2018, excluding capitalised interest and waste stripping, rose by R0.5 billion to R1.8 billion (after adjusting for the
ACP insurance proceeds of R0.3 billion) from R1.3 billion in the first half of 2017. Stay-in-business capital expenditure increased by R0.2 billion to R1.4 billion,
focused on safety-critical and business continuity projects, including heavy mining equipment replacement and the planned maintenance of processing assets,
including the Mortimer Smelter rebuild. Our focus is to invest in low capex, fast-payback, value-accretive projects. Project capital was R0.2 billion higher at R0.4
billion, relating to the Unki smelter, Amandelbult chrome plants and Mogalakwena concentrator optimisation project.

Waste tonnes mined decreased from 34Mt in H1 2017 to 33Mt in H1 2018 and the cost of mining 15Mt was capitalised (H1 2017: capitalisation of 10Mt). As a result,
capitalised waste stripping increased from R0.4 billion in H1 2017 to R0.6 billion in H1 2018.

Project and stay-in-business capex is forecast to be within 2018 guidance of between R4.7 billion and R5.2 billion. The increase reflects a once-off stay-in-
business project for SO2 abatement at the Polokwane and Mortimer smelters to be incurred between 2018 and 2023 (R2.5 billion) to achieve global benchmark emissions
standards and South African legal requirements. Capitalised waste stripping is expected to be around R1.4 billion, above previous guidance of R1.1 billion as a
result of increased waste tonnes mined due to improved truck and shovel efficiencies.

Working Capital

We continue to focus on optimising our working capital levels. Trade working capital has been actively managed down from R13.3 billion (75 days) at the beginning of
2016 to R6.2 billion at the end of 2017, representing a 26-day working capital cycle. Trade working capital at 30 June 2018 was R5.4 billion (33 days), a R0.8
billion decrease due to improved debtors collection (R0.3 billion) and higher trade creditors (R1.9 billion) due to purchases of concentrate from Siyanda and the
impact of higher prices on purchases of concentrate cost and an increase in customer prepayment of R1.1 billion. This was partially offset by a build-up in work-
in-progress material as planned maintenance takes place at processing assets, partially offset by a reduction in refined metal.

Platinum and palladium work-in-progress inventory has increased from around 467,000 ounces and 379,000 ounces at end of 2017 to levels of 628,000 ounces and 467,000
ounces respectively at the end of the first half of 2018. In H1 2018, we had a stock count loss of R0.5 billion (H1 2017: stock count gain of R0.9 billion), with
the benefit of a 26,000-ounce platinum stock count gain valued at R0.2 billion, being offset by stock count losses of 16,000 palladium ounces, 19,000 rhodium ounces
and 3,000 tonnes of nickel valued at R0.7 billion.

Net debt and liquidity

During the first half of the year, we made further progress in strengthening the balance sheet. The Company ended with a net cash position of R0.5 billion compared
to R1.8 billion net debt at the end of 2017, after the payment of a R0.9 billion dividend and despite the work-in progress build-up. The reduction was supported by
free cash flow from operations of R1.3 billion, R1.1 billion from the customer prepayment and R0.9 billion net proceeds on asset sales, including R0.4 billion from
the disposal of Union operations and R0.4 billion from the sale of the Company's 8.8% shareholding in RB Plat.

Excluding the customer prepayment of R5.7 billion (which is settled in metal), net debt is R5.2 billion and net debt to EBITDA is 0.4. Liquidity headroom is at
R22.5 billion, comprising both undrawn committed facilities of R13.3 billion and cash of R9.2 billion, and the Company is very comfortably within its debt


In accordance with the Company's capital allocation framework to distribute a base dividend of 30% of headline earnings for each reporting period, the Board has
declared an interim cash dividend of R3.74 per share, which is equivalent to a 30% headline earnings pay-out ratio or 3.3x dividend cover. The dividend is
applicable to shareholders on the register on 10 August 2018 and payable on 13 August 2018.



The USD-based market platinum price ended H1 2018 at USD849 per ounce, down 8% year-on-year (H1 2017: USD921). The market palladium price was up 11% to USD953 per ounce
(H1 2017: USD858) and the market rhodium price up 117% to USD2,250 per ounce (H1 2017: USD1,035).


The average achieved platinum price in H1 2018 declined by 3% compared to H1 2017 in US Dollar terms. Platinum underperformed the other platinum group metals due to
a modest surplus and weak sentiment driven by a soft Chinese jewellery market and a decrease in the share of the diesel engine in Europe's light duty vehicle

Total platinum supply is expected to remain largely unchanged year-on-year in 2018. Primary production of platinum is forecast to decline marginally in 2018 to 6.05
million ounces, partly driven by the impact of mine closures in South Africa during 2017. Secondary supply of platinum is forecast to increase by 80,000 ounces due
to growth in autocatalyst recycling volumes, although this will be partially offset by lower volumes of platinum jewellery recycling in China.

Platinum demand is expected to fall slightly in 2018. Investment demand is predicted to fall by about 100,000 ounces to more normal levels of 250,000 ounces in 2018
and autocatalyst demand is forecast to weaken by the same amount. This will be driven by lower platinum demand from the European diesel light-duty vehicle sector,
where the diesel engine's share in new vehicle sales is declining markedly. However, this will be partially offset by higher demand from the global heavy duty
diesel vehicle sector. Platinum demand from the glass, petroleum and chemical sectors should increase year-on-year in 2018. This combination of slightly lower
demand, modestly lower primary production and a marginal increase in secondary supply should see a small surplus of 315,000 ounces.


The average palladium market price in H1 2018 of USD1,005 per ounce was over USD200 higher than the average price in H1 2017. Growing demand for palladium from the
automotive sector has tightened the market over the past couple of years and known inventories of palladium have fallen. The market deficit was estimated at 800,000
ounces in 2017 and palladium is expected to remain in a deficit of around 250,000 ounces in 2018.

Palladium supply from the largest producer of the metal, Russia, is expected to increase year-on-year in 2018 as sales more closely match overall mine production.
Global primary palladium supply may be augmented by additional Russian material and could increase 500,000 ounces to 6.9 million ounces in 2018. Secondary supply
from autocatalyst recycling is anticipated to increase by about 200,000 ounces year-on-year.

Palladium demand is strong with particularly firm growth from the autocatalyst sector, which accounts for approximately 80% of global palladium demand. Demand from
this sector is expected to increase 175,000 ounces year-on-year to 8.6 million ounces in 2018, largely offsetting the increased recycling volumes. However, ETF and
other investment flows were negative in 2017 and are forecast to be negative again in 2018.
The tight market, with deficits of supply versus demand, should continue to support higher palladium prices. The impact of US and China trade tariffs and sentiment
may result in some volatility in the price.


Rhodium has performed very strongly in H1 2018, with the average market price rising by 103% to a 7-year high of USD1,938 per ounce (H1 2017: USD911). Both primary and
secondary production of the metal are expected to increase slightly in 2018. Speculative investment demand for rhodium has driven a higher price in 2018 and
stronger automotive demand is likely to support a higher price going forward.

Minor metals

Ruthenium and iridium prices increased to multi-year highs in H1 2018. Ruthenium climbed to an average of USD221 per ounce (H1 2017: USD48) and iridium rose to an
average of USD1,054 per ounce (H1 2017: USD804), with the prices of each metal driven higher by strong industrial demand in Asia.


Global light duty vehicle (LDV) sales are forecast to grow by 2.3% year-on-year to 98 million units in 2018 (source: LMC Automotive Global Light Vehicle Sales
Update). Modest year-on-year growth is forecast in Europe and China, and a small decline is expected in North America. Palladium and rhodium are used in the
catalytic converters of gasoline vehicles and will benefit from global vehicle growth, while platinum is the dominant PGM in exhaust after treatment for diesel

The diesel engine's share of LDV sales in Europe has fallen from an average of nearly 45% in H1 2017 to under 40% in H1 2018, driven primarily by concerns over
potential banning of older diesel vehicles in European cities. However, platinum demand from the automotive sector worldwide is only expected to fall by 100,000
ounces between 2017 and 2018. Offsetting the decline in light vehicles in Europe, diesel LDV sales outside of Europe are expected to increase by 200,000 units;
strong demand is also expected from the heavy-duty vehicle sector (HDV). Globally, the share of HDVs fitted with PGM containing catalyst systems is expected to rise
above 60% and grow rapidly over the medium term as increased emissions legislation in China and India encourages the fitment of more PGM containing catalysts.

The outlook for palladium and rhodium demand is quite positive for the next few years, despite only moderately strong vehicle sales growth. Tighter emissions
standards and higher light duty vehicle production are forecast to support palladium and rhodium demand from 2019 onwards. With the palladium price having traded
above that of platinum since September 2017, the question of substituting platinum for palladium in gasoline or three-way catalytic converters comes into play.
While research suggests that substitution in some of these catalysts is possible, automotive companies have yet to respond to the changing price environment in this
way. It is unlikely that there will be any meaningful progress in replacing palladium with platinum in gasoline autocatalytic converters before 2020, although it is
likely this will occur at some point.

Battery electric vehicles make up less than 2% of light vehicle sales in most countries and have made only nominal inroads on PGM demand. However, while still
small, the electric vehicle sector continues to grow and increasing numbers of automotive producers are looking at introducing electric options for vehicles they
sell. It is estimated that demand for platinum from the fuel cell electric vehicle sector was less than 20,000 ounces in 2017 but this will continue to grow. As
with battery electric vehicles, China is leading the way in developing the fuel cell electric vehicle sector and is aiming to have 50,000 fuel cell vehicles on the
road by 2025 and one million vehicles by 2030.

Hybrid electric vehicle sales are growing more rapidly than battery electric or fuel cell electric vehicle sales. PGM loadings on hybrid vehicles are currently
about the same as their internal combustion engine equivalents and so a shift to hybrid powertrains does not represent a negative impact on PGM demand.


Gross industrial demand for platinum is expected to increase by about 60,000 ounces in 2018. This will be driven by stronger demand from the chemical and electrical

In contrast, gross industrial demand for palladium is expected to fall back by about 2%, or 50,000 ounces this year. This will be led by weaker demand from the
chemical industry as well as further thrifting of palladium in the dental and electronic sectors. Industrial demand for rhodium is also expected to fall this year
due to lower purchases of the metal by the glass and chemical sectors.


Global gross demand for platinum from the jewellery sector fell slightly in 2017. This decline was driven by weak demand from China, where platinum jewellery
manufacturing fell approximately 10% in 2017, the fourth consecutive year of falling demand. Platinum jewellery demand in China has come under pressure from slower
economic growth and a move to higher margins at a retail level. Nevertheless, platinum gem-set and bridal jewellery sales are still strong in the country. Demand
for platinum from the Chinese jewellery sector is forecast to fall again in 2018 but there is scope for it to stabilise from 2019 onwards, driven by growth in Tier
3 and 4 cities and continuing work on improving retail margins.

There were more positive performances elsewhere, for instance from a strengthening Indian market. In contrast to China, Indian platinum jewellery demand underwent
robust growth in 2017, with demand 15% higher year-on-year and further growth should be seen this year. Elsewhere, modest growth is expected in the European and US
platinum jewellery sectors.


Net investment demand for platinum is expected to be 250,000 ounces in 2018, about 100,000 ounces lower than in 2017. There were net inflows of metal into ETFs in
2017, encouraged by periods of relative price weakness in US Dollar terms. So far this year, ETF flows have been close to neutral but the US Mint has sold 23,000
ounces of platinum Eagles, suggesting that underlying demand for platinum as an investment continues. Work by the WPIC continues to improve availability and demand
for physical products. Partnerships with the likes of Bullion Vault and the Royal Mint have helped to stimulate additional physical demand in a number of countries.

Net disinvestment of palladium occurred in 2017 and this is expected to occur again in 2018 despite the metal's healthy fundamentals as investors continue to sell
into price strength. At the start of 2018, profit taking resulted in some heavy selling by ETFs as the palladium price moved above USD1,000 per ounce. Palladium ETF
holdings have fallen by roughly 300,000 ounces year-to-date to only 950,000 ounces.

Market outlook

The platinum market is likely to remain in a small surplus in the next few years, with supply outweighing demand. In contrast, the palladium market will probably
remain in a deficit, primarily as a result of strong demand from the automotive sector, potentially supporting a strong palladium price.

Automotive platinum demand looks set to remain weak, and this is not expected to be completely offset by rising industrial demand for the metal. Investment demand
is dependent on price movements and on price volatility but should be positive, aided by market development. Primary supply of platinum is expected to decline
modestly and there is only limited potential for growth in recycling of platinum from the autocatalyst, electrical and jewellery sectors.

The number of gasoline vehicles produced is expected to grow and, in conjunction with tighter emissions legislation, this means that palladium demand from the
automotive industry is likely to rise again year-on-year in 2018 and in the following few years. It is unlikely that there will be any meaningful progress in
replacing palladium with platinum in gasoline catalytic converters in the next 24 months, although it is likely this will occur at some point. As with platinum,
mine production of palladium should stay relatively unchanged year-on-year in 2018 and in the next few years, although some previously-mined material may come to
market this year. There will be about 8% growth in secondary supply of palladium from greater volumes of catalytic converter recycling, but nevertheless, palladium
should remain in a deficit even if disinvestment of physical palladium continues.

Growing demand from the automotive sector will support higher demand for rhodium going forward in a relatively illiquid market. Ruthenium and iridium demand is also
likely to remain healthy.


The Reviewed Mining Charter (MCIII)

Anglo American Platinum notes the publication of the draft 2018 Mining Charter by the Minister of Mineral Resources on 15 June 2018. All parties have until the end
of August to respond to the draft, following the decision by the Minister of Mineral Resources to extend the public consultation period. Anglo American is preparing
its submission in respect of the draft 2018 Mining Charter.

Anglo American Platinum shares the acknowledgement made by the Minerals Council that the draft 2018 Mining Charter is an improvement on the draft 2017 Mining
Charter. However, Anglo American Platinum has concerns surrounding several significant issues in the draft charter that it believes may affect the sustainability of
the mining industry in South Africa, should they not be reconsidered.

Anglo American Platinum has consistently affirmed its support for the Government's national transformation objectives in relation to the mining industry and
acknowledges its role in promoting transformation in South Africa. Correspondingly, Anglo American Platinum has a longstanding track record of driving and
supporting transformation in the mining industry and beyond, while contributing significantly to South Africa's economic growth and development.

Anglo American Platinum believes that more work needs to be done, in consultation with all stakeholders, to create a Mining Charter that promotes both investment
for the long term and transformation. We look forward to the ongoing discussions with the Minister, the Department of Mineral Resources and other industry
stakeholders to work towards this.


During this period, the sale of the Company's 85% attributable interest in Union was finalised, and as a result there will be a decrease in the Inclusive Mineral
Resource estimates as disclosed in the 2017 integrated report.


Indresen Pillay has resigned as Executive Head of Projects and Safety, Health and Environment as of August 2018. A process is underway to find his successor.

Vishnu Pillay will retire as Executive Head of Joint Ventures and Exit Operations as of 31 December 2018.


Operational outlook

Due to a strong operational performance in H1 2018, Anglo American Platinum revises up its production outlook for the full year. PGM production guidance (metal in
concentrate) will be 4.85 - 5.10 million PGM ounces (from 4.75 to 5.00 million ounces), including platinum ounces of 2.40 - 2.45 million ounces (from 2.35 - 2.40
million ounces).

Mogalakwena production increased in part due to the high-grade area mined in H1 2018. This will normalise to an annual average of 3.18g/t, resulting in a forecast
production for 2018 of 1.15 million PGM ounces (around 480,000 platinum ounces).

Platinum refined production and sales volumes will be in line with production as the backlog of work-in-progress inventory built up will be refined by year end. PGM
refined production and sales volumes will however be lower than production overall, as the 2018 stock count identified a loss of work-in-progress inventory,
particularly impacting palladium and rhodium.

Financial outlook

The global economic outlook remains uncertain, with volatility in metal prices and exchange rates expected to continue. Management's efforts to reposition the
portfolio, taking out loss-making ounces, implementing strict cost control and focussing on operational efficiencies should enhance margins and generate sustainable
cash flow. Unit cost is expected to be inline with previous market guidance of R19,600-R20,200 per platinum ounce produced. Capital discipline will continue, with
capital expenditure guidance remaining between R4.7 billion to R5.2 billion, of which R3.9 billion to R4.2 billion will be on sustaining capex to maintain asset
integrity and meet compliance requirements.
