STATEMENT BY NICK HOLLAND, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF GOLD FIELDS 

2018 in review
2018 marked the second year of the reinvestment programme embarked on by Gold Fields at the end of 2016.  The key driver of the 
reinvestment plan was to ensure that our portfolio of mines continues to generate cash sustainably into the foreseeable future, by 
lowering group all-in costs and extending the average mine life. 

Having spent total project capital of US$502m over the past two years, primarily on Damang and Gruyere, Gold Fields is now on track to 
ensure that our international operations will be producing over 2Moz a year for the next decade.  This milestone is expected to be 
reached for the first time in 2019 as Damang grows production; Gruyere commences production and our Asanko JV contributes for the full 
year.  Gold Fields is expected to increase production by 4% to 7% in 2019.

The longer-term future of the Group also looks positive as we continue to invest in near-mine exploration at our Australian mines, 
which yet again enabled us to put back into reserves what was depleted last year and add beyond that.  A positive feasibility study for 
the Salares Norte project has been completed and a maiden reserve of 3.5Moz has been declared. 

While South Deep had a difficult year, the large scale restructuring completed at the end of 2018, places the mine on an improved 
footing from which to gradually build-up production, having removed over R800m out of our cost base and R400m of capital expenditure 
with a significantly reduced footprint.

During 2018, we have seen a continued improvement in our health and safety performance as stringent safety culture and standards become 
entrenched at our operations and projects.  Gold Fields? Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate (TRIFR) fell below two recordable 
injuries per million hours worked for the first time in 2018, a 24% YoY improvement and the lowest level ever recorded for the Group.  
However, we still recorded one fatality last year (three in 2017), which served as a tragic reminder that we have lots more work to do 
to eliminate all fatalities and further reduce injuries.

Attributable gold equivalent production for 2018 was 2.04Moz (FY17: 2.16Moz), exceeding revised guidance of 2.00Moz.

All-in sustaining costs (AISC) and all-in costs (AIC) were US$981/oz (FY17: US$955/oz) and US$1,173/oz (FY17: US$1,088/oz), 
respectively, both below the lower end of the guidance range provided in February 2018 - AISC: US$990-1,010/oz and AIC: US$1,190-
1,210/oz.  All operations, apart from South Deep, exceeded guidance for the year, once again highlighting the quality of the portfolio, 
with these operations being higher on production and lower on costs.

Headline earnings for 2018 were US$61m or US$0.07 per share (2017: US$210m or US$0.26 per share).  Net loss for the year was US$348m or 
US$0.42 per share (2017: US$19m or US$0.02 per share). Normalised profit for the year was US$27m or US$0.03 per share (2017: US$154m or 
US$0.19 per share).

In line with our dividend policy of paying out 25% to 35% of net earnings as dividends, we declared a final dividend of 20 SA cents per 
share. This takes the total dividend for the year to 40 SA cents per share (FY 2017: 90 SA cents per share).

As expected, 2018 was another higher capital expenditure year, with a total of US$814m spent in the year given that 2018 was the peak 
year of capital spend on new projects.  As a result, the net cash outflow for the year was US$132m, compared to US$2m in 2017. Mine 
cash flow for the year, which excludes project capital, was US$334m, compared to US$441m in 2017.

Largely on the back of the net cash outflow for the year and the US$165m payment for the acquisition of the 45% in Asanko Gold Mine, 
the net debt at 31 December 2018 increased to US$1,612m, compared to US$1,303m at the end of FY 2017.  This implies a net debt to 
adjusted EBITDA of 1.45x, compared to 1.03x at the end of December 2017 and well within our covenant of 2.5x.  This increase was 
anticipated, given the significant spend on projects in 2018, however, we expect the net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio to reduce in 
2019.

Despite the heavy capital expenditure over the past two years, Gold Fields balance sheet remains in a comfortable position.  As the 
group continuously reviews its funding and maturity profile, it is considering opportunities to access the US$ international bond 
markets primarily to refinance its debt facilities - including potentially the US$1bn 4.875% 144A/RegS bond maturing in October 2020. 

Update on the projects
Damang Reinvestment project
The reinvestment project, which commenced on 23 December 2016, continued to track well against plan during 2018.  Total tonnes mined 
were 45.9Mt (2017: 39.7Mt) in 2018 vs. the project schedule of 41.5Mt, driven by a good performance by both of the contractors (BCM and 
E&P).  Gold produced of 180.8koz (2017: 143.6koz) was 13% higher than guidance of 160.0koz, underpinned by high-grade material from the 
Amoanda pit, while AIC of US$1,506/oz (2017: US$1,827/oz) was below guidance of US$1,520/oz. Project capital of US$125m was spent 
during 2018, on top of the US$115m spent during 2017.

The project is on track to begin sourcing higher-grade ore from the Saddle area of the DPCB early in 2019 and then reach the reef 
horizon of the main pit in early 2020.  The Amoanda pit has been the main ore source during the cutback of the main Damang pit, with 
positive grade reconciliation from Amoanda being a key driver to the outperformance of the project over the past 24 months. 

The Far East Tailings Storage Facility (FETSF), which will provide cost effective life of mine tailings capacity of 44Mt, was 
commissioned during Q4 2017, on time and within budget. Decommissioning of the East Tailings Storage Facility (ETSF) commenced during 
Q1 2018, and was completed during 2018, with all tailings now being deposited on the FETSF.

Gruyere
During 2018, the JV partners announced a slight delay to project completion and an increase in the final forecast capital (FFC) cost 
estimate.  First gold is now expected to be poured during the June 2019 quarter (previously the March 2019 quarter) whilst the FCC 
estimate is A$621m, a 17% increase from the previous FCC estimate of A$532m. 

As at end-December 2018, engineering was largely complete, whilst construction progress was 86.7% vs. budget of 86.4%, with all major 
equipment and materials for effective construction already delivered to site.  During 2018, civil works on the tailings storage 
facility and installation of the tailings decant recovery pipelines were completed and the power station was fully commissioned.  All 
civil and concrete works for the process plant were completed by year-end, with structural steel, plate steel and tankage nearing 
completion.  Post year-end, the remaining work focused on piping, electrical and instrumentation and delivery of plant systems for 
commissioning of the plant which is expected during Q2 2019.

Mining contractor, Downer EDI, began mobilising their workforce during Q1 2018 to begin construction of the mining infrastructure.  
Mining activities commenced in November 2018, focusing on completing the pre-strip and second stage ROM pad development.  First ore 
was mined and crushed post year-end.

During 2018, A$306m (US$230m) (100% basis) was spent on the project, bringing the cumulative costs incurred as at end-December 2018 to 
A$492m (US$374m).  The remaining project capital of A$129m (US$97m) (100% basis) has been budgeted for 2019, the majority of which will 
be spent during the first half of the year. 

First gold is forecast for Q2 2019 with production of 59koz (Gold Fields 50% share) forecast for the year.  A relatively quick ramp up 
is anticipated, with steady state run rate expected by year-end.

Salares Norte
The feasibility study for the project was completed and peer reviewed during 2018.  The key elements of the feasibility study include:
-  Initial 11.5-year life of mine
-  Annual throughput of 2mt
-  Life of mine production of 4.0Moz gold equivalent which will be front-end loaded
-  Annual production of 355koz gold equivalent over life of mine (annual production of 450koz for first 7 years)
-  AISC of US$545 per gold equivalent ounce (AISC of US$465/oz for first 7 years)
-  Project capital of US$850m (+/-5%)
-  IRR of 25% at US$1,300/oz gold price with a 2.2 year payback period, from commencement of first production 
-  NPV is US$654m (discount rate 7.5%) from full notice to proceed
-  Strip ratio 13.9 (including pre-strip) and 11.7 (excluding pre-strip)

In December 2018, Gold Fields updated the project?s Mineral Resources and Reserves, reporting a total Mineral Resource of 25.6Mt of 
gold at a grade of 4.76g/t to give 3.9Moz, and 43.7Moz of silver at an average grade of 53.1g/t.  More pertinently, a maiden Reserve 
has been declared with 3.5Moz of gold (21.1Mt at 5.1g/t) and 39.3Moz of silver at 57.9g/t.

The project envisages open pit operations with a processing plant that includes both CIP and Merrill Crowe processes, due to the high 
silver content. In addition, given the scarcity of water in the area, dry stack tailings are expected to be used. 

The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) was accepted for review on 11 July 2018. Gold Fields anticipates the EIA review to take 
18 - 24 months to complete.  Given the declaration of the maiden reserve together with the positive results of the feasibility study, 
management is confident that the project will be developed.  However there is sufficient time to consider funding options and whether 
or not to bring in a partner to develop the asset. 

Regional performance in FY 2018
Australia
Gold Fields? Australian operations delivered another strong operational performance in 2018.  Gold production at 886koz was better than 
full year guidance of 865koz, with Granny Smith, St Ives and Agnew all outperforming both production and cost guidance.  Production was 
5% lower than in 2017 (935koz), which included three quarters of production from Darlot. AIC for the region was 4% higher YoY at 
A$1,262/oz (FY17: A$1,210/oz) but marginally higher in US$ terms at US$926/oz (FY17: US$948/oz).  The region had another strong year of 
cash generation, with net cash inflow of US$194m (FY17: US$189m), excluding Gruyere capital.

In an important development for Agnew, Gold Fields made the decision to invest in a new camp (we previously rented rooms from BHP 
Billiton in Leinster 26 km away from site) and hybrid power station on site.  The first buildings for the camp arrived on 15 December 
2018 and construction commenced in January 2019.  Commissioning of 450 rooms and the central facilities is targeted for May 2019. The 
new power station will entail a combination of gas, solar and wind power generation.  Commissioning of the gas and solar components is 
scheduled for June 2019, with wind generation to follow in Q1 2020.

West Africa
Attributable gold production from the West Africa region, which includes Asanko Gold Mine?s (AGM) contribution from 1 August 2018, 
increased 6% to 680koz (FY17: 639koz).  Excluding the AGM contribution, attributable production would have decreased by 1% to 635koz, 
however this was 4% ahead of guidance for the year.  Damang materially outperformed guidance of 160koz, producing 181koz due to 
continued outperformance from the Amoanda pit. AIC for the region decreased by 2% to US$1,098/oz (FY17: US$1,119/oz), and beat guidance 
of US$1,100/oz.  The good cost performance was mainly due to lower net operating costs and lower sustaining capital expenditure, 
partially offset by lower gold sold and higher project capital at Damang. Despite the increase in project capital at Damang (US$125m in 
FY18 vs. US$115m in FY17), the region generated net cash flow of US$24m (FY17: US$64m).

During the year, Tarkwa transitioned from owner mining to contractor mining in an attempt to address cost inflation in the region.  
The mining contract was demarcated into two zones and awarded to two local contractors: BCM for Zone 1 (Pepe, Mantraim, Atuabo and 
Teberebe Pits) and E&P for Zone 2 (Akontansi and Kottraverchy Pits).  BCM mobilised and started operations in Zone 1 on 24 March 2018, 
with E&P following in the Zone 2 area on 7 April 2018.  As part of the tender process, the contractors undertook to purchase all fleet 
from Gold Fields, which largely covered the retrenchment costs incurred through the process.

South America
Cerro Corona in Peru had another solid year in 2018, with attributable gold-equivalent production of 313koz (2017: 305koz).  This was 
12% higher than the gold-equivalent production guidance for the year of 280koz, underpinned by the higher copper price ratio and higher 
copper production due to a higher copper head grade as a result of higher grade areas mined.  AISC and AIC were US$282/oz in 2018 
compared to US$203/oz in 2017 and, on a gold equivalent basis, US$699/oz in 2018 (2017: US$673/oz).  The increase in AISC and AIC was 
primarily due to lower by-product credits, lower gold sold and higher cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation.  Both AISC 
and AIC comfortably beat guidance for the year of US$585/oz and, on a gold equivalent basis US$810/oz.  On the back of the strong 
operating performance, Cerro Corona generated net cash flow of US$114m (FY17: US$117m).

South Africa
South Deep got off to a tough start in 2018, with production in Q1 2018 impacted by a slow build up after the seasonal holidays, two 
labour restructuring processes that took place at the end of 2017 and during Q1 2018, and a change in the underground working shift 
arrangements implemented in an attempt to increase productivity.  In addition, low mobile equipment reliability, the intersection of 
active geological features (faults and dykes) in the high-grade corridor 3 and poor ground conditions in the even higher grade 
composites (far western part of the orebody) slowed production rates.  Production was further impacted by a 22-day DMR related safety 
stoppage during April 2018.  As a result of these factors, guidance for the mine was downgraded to 7,600kg (244koz) with the release of 
our Q1 2018 production update on 25 April 2018, from the original guidance of 10,000kg (321koz).

Despite the two restructuring processes, South Deep continued to face a number of organisational and structural challenges that 
directly affected performance during Q2 2018, with production during the quarter only marginally higher than Q1 2018 at 1,518kg 
(49koz).  As a result, on 14 August 2018, Gold Fields announced a material restructuring of the mine, to right-size the cost base to 
match existing levels of output. 

As part of the restructuring, Gold Fields served a Section 189 notice to its trade unions (the NUM and UASA) on 14 August 2018.  
The consultation period ended on 31 October 2018 and Gold Fields formally served the NUM and UASA with a list of employees that were 
to be given notice of termination as per the Section 189 process.  The majority union (NUM) embarked on a strike on 2 November 2018 
which lasted six weeks.  The NUM eventually suspended the strike on 18 December 2018 and signed a settlement agreement.  Through the 
restructuring, a total of 1,092 permanent employees exited the business, of which 904 were retrenched, 183 opted for voluntary 
separation packages and five resigned. Gold Fields also reduced its underground fleet through the restructuring, with the aim of 
decongesting the working areas.  In this regard, the number of Cat 1 machines was reduced by 33% from 98 to 66 (drill rigs, loaders 
and trucks).  

Given the slow start to the year together with the impacts of the strike with very little production in Q4 2018, South Deep?s 
production decreased 44% YoY to 4,885kg (157koz) and was 36% below revised guidance of 7,600kg (244koz). AIC of R854,049/kg were also 
significantly higher than expected (guidance: R540,000/kg) underpinned by the significantly lower amount of gold sold during the year.  
The mine recorded a net cash outflow of R1,891m (US$141m) which includes R148m in retrenchment payments. 

In the wake of the restructuring, which has seen our employee workforce fall by 38% from 3,983 to 2,460 and the number of contractors 
from 2,294 to 1,725, we are in a position to significantly reduce South Deep?s pre-restructuring cash-burn during 2019.  We expect to 
build-up gradually to a sustainable production profile from this restructured position.  The key enablers for sustainable improvements 
at South Deep are:
-  Accelerate backfill placement
-  More robust and timely ground support
-  Improved drill and blast to improve stope design and reduce underbreak and overbreak
-  Improved fleet availability and utilisation
-  Flatter organisational structure
-  Rigorous performance management linked to line of sight performance
-  Improved stakeholder management, including government, unions and surrounding communities. 

Asanko JV
In March 2018, Gold Fields entered into an agreement to form a 50:50 incorporated joint venture (JV) with Asanko Gold. In the deal 
which went unconditional on 31 July 2018, Gold Fields acquired a 50% stake in Asanko Gold Ghana?s 90% interest in the Asanko Gold Mine 
(AGM), associated properties and exploration rights in Ghana.  While Asanko remains operators of the asset, a JV committee has been 
established in which Gold Fields actively contributes from a geotechnical, modelling and planning perspective. 

The purchase consideration included an upfront payment of US$165m and a deferred payment of US$20m payable on the earlier of an agreed 
Esaase development milestone or 31 December 2019. In addition, Gold Fields purchased 9.9% of Asanko Gold?s issued equity through a 
private placement for a total consideration on US$17.6m.

During 2018, AGM produced 223koz (100% basis) at an AISC of US$1,069/oz and AIC of US$1,175/oz. Guidance for 2019 is 225,000oz to 
245,000oz (100% basis) at AISC of US$1,040/oz to US$1,060/oz and AIC of US$1,090/oz to US$1,110/oz.  Included in the guidance is first 
production from oxide material from the Esaase deposit which will be trucked to the processing plant.

Mineral Reserves 
Gold Fields has increased its focus on growing its Reserve base outside of South Africa. During 2018, there were some significant 
developments in this regard, including:
-  A maiden gold equivalent reserve of 4.0Moz was declared at Salares Norte in Chile
-  There was a 0.3Moz (4% YoY) increase in the Australian region?s reserves, net of depletion.  Notably, this includes an 11% YoY 
   increase in St Ives? reserves net of depletion
-  There was a net decrease of 4.6Moz at South Deep due to geotechnical re-design, adjusted loss factors and an increased cut-off 
   grade

As at end-2018, 20.5Moz of Gold Fields? Reserves (excluding Gold Fields? 45% interest in the Asanko Gold Mine) were outside South 
Africa, representing 41% of the Group?s Reserve base.

Eskom power crisis
We note that Eskom is in a crisis, placing the whole country at risk. While there is no silver bullet, we want security of supply 
restored, especially for the mining industry.  South Deep is currently operating below capacity, which does provide the mine with 
some flexibility on power usage. We have short, medium and long-term strategies in place to mitigate the risk, including, scheduling 
of activities, additional off-grid power and longer term renewables. We continue to engage through industrial associations to provide 
assistance where possible.

2019 outlook and guidance
2019 is set to be an important year for Gold Fields, with the Damang project approaching completion and Gruyere commencing production. 
In addition, Asanko will contribute for a full year for the first time since acquisition.  This will allow the Group to increase 
production by 4 - 7% in 2019.  This also means that our capital expenditure will fall quite aggressively through 2019 and the amount 
of project capex reduces.  The year will however, be one of two halves, with both production and cash flow being weighted to 2H 2019. 

For 2019, Gold Fields has undertaken certain gold price hedging, in order to secure short-term cash flow and protect the balance sheet 
from the volatility of the gold price as we complete our investment phase and ramp up the projects.

Attributable equivalent gold production for the Group for 2019 is expected to be between 2.13Moz and 2.18Moz.  AISC is expected to be 
between US$980/oz and US$995/oz.  AIC is planned to be between US$1,075/oz and US$1,095/oz.  These expectations assume exchange rates 
of R/US$:13.80 and A$/US$:0.75.

Production for South Deep is expected to be 6,000kg (193koz), with AIC of R610,000/kg (US$1,372/oz). 

Capital expenditure for the Group is planned at US$633m. Sustaining capital expenditure for the Group is planned at US$490m and growth 
capital expenditure is planned at US$143m.  The US$143m growth capital expenditure comprises US$69m for Damang and A$99m (US$74m) for 
Gruyere.  Expenditure on Salares Norte is expected to be US$57m in 2019.  The capital expenditure above excludes the Group?s share of 
Asanko?s total capital expenditure of US$25m for 2019.

RESULTS FOR THE GROUP 

Safety
Sadly, South Deep recorded a fatality during October 2018 which was a machine related incident.  This is the first fatality South Deep 
has recorded since February 2017 and was also the only fatality reported for the Group in 2018.  The Group?s fatality injury frequency 
rate improved from 0.05 in 2017 to 0.02 in 2018.  The total recordable injury frequency rate (TRIFR)1 for the Group improved by 24 per 
cent from 2.42 in 2017 to 1.83 in 2018, the best achieved by the Group.

The strategy of the Group will focus on eliminating fatalities and serious injuries.  In addition, an increased focus is being put on 
leading indicators to take safety to the next level, including increased visible leadership, reporting and close out of hazards and 
full roll out of critical control management through design, engineering and procedural control, as well as behaviour change. 

The CEO, executives and senior managers from all regions met in October 2018 to develop a group-wide safety strategy.  While the 
details are being fine-tuned, it was agreed that the strategy?s pillars should be: safety leadership, safe behaviour and systems and 
processes.  The forum agreed that implementing a courageous safety leadership programme would refocus and strengthen our safety efforts 
and complement existing programmes.  Stuart Matthews, our Group Head of Australia, will be responsible for leading this global effort 
to finalise and guide the strategy?s group-wide rollout. 

1  Total Recordable Injury Frequency rate (TRIFR). (TRIFR) = (Fatalities + Lost Time Injuries2 + Restricted Work Injuries3 + Medically 
   Treated Injuries4) x 1,000,000/ number of man-hours worked.
2  A Lost Time Injury (LTI) is a work-related injury resulting in the employee or contractor being unable to attend work for a period 
   of one or more days after the day of the injury. The employee or contractor is unable to perform any functions.
3  A Restricted Work Injury (RWI) is a work-related injury sustained by an employee or contractor which results in the employee or 
   contractor being unable to perform one or more of their routine functions for a full working day, from the day after the injury 
   occurred. The employee or contractor can still perform some of his duties.
4  A Medically Treated Injury (MTI) is a work-related injury sustained by an employee or contractor which does not incapacitate that 
   employee and who, after having received medical treatment, is deemed fit to immediately resume his/her normal duties on the next 
   calendar day, immediately following the treatment/re-treatment.


FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2018 COMPARED WITH YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2017

Revenue
Attributable equivalent gold production decreased by 6 per cent from 2.160 million ounces in 2017 to 2.036 million ounces in 2018, 
almost exclusively due to the decline in production at South Deep.  

Gold production at South Deep in South Africa, decreased by 44 per cent from 8,748 kilograms (281,300 ounces) to 4,885 kilograms 
(157,100 ounces).

Attributable gold production at the West African operations increased by 6 per cent from 639,000 ounces in 2017 to 679,700 ounces in 
2018 due to higher production at Damang as well as the inclusion of 44,500 ounces from Asanko for the five months ending December 2018.  
This was partially offset by lower production at Tarkwa.  Attributable equivalent gold production at Cerro Corona in Peru increased by 
2 per cent from 305,200 ounces in 2017 to 312,500 ounces in 2018.  Gold production at the Australian operations decreased by 5 per cent 
from 934,600 ounces in 2017 to 886,400 ounces in 2018 due to marginally lower production at Agnew and Granny Smith, partially offset by 
higher production at St Ives but mainly due to the exclusion of Darlot in 2018.  The 934,600 ounces in 2017, included 39,200 ounces for 
nine months only at the discontinued operation, Darlot.

At the South Africa region, production at South Deep decreased by 44 per cent from 8,748 kilograms (281,300 ounces) in 2017 to 
4,885 kilograms (157,100 ounces) in 2018 due to decreased volumes and grades.  This was mainly due to the industrial action, the 
restructuring process as well as the fatal accident, further exacerbated by poor ground conditions in the high grade areas of the mine.

At the West Africa region, managed gold production at Tarkwa decreased by 7 per cent from 566,400 ounces in 2017 to 524,900 ounces in 
2018 mainly due to lower volumes mined in line with the 2018 planned strategy to reduce mining and optimise margins and cash flow.  
At Damang, managed gold production increased by 26 per cent from 143,600 ounces in 2017 to 180,800 ounces in 2018 mainly due to higher 
head grade and yield.  Production at Asanko amounted to 44,500 ounces for the 5 months ended December 2018.

At the South America region, total managed gold equivalent production at Cerro Corona increased by 2 per cent from 306,700 ounces in 
2017 to 314,100 ounces in 2018 mainly due to the higher copper price relative to the gold price (price factor) and higher copper 
production as a result of higher copper head grade.  

At the Australia region, St Ives? gold production increased by 1 per cent from 363,900 ounces in 2017 to 366,900 ounces in 2018.  
At Agnew, gold production decreased by 1 per cent from 241,200 ounces in 2017 to 239,100 ounces in 2018 mainly due to decreased ore 
processed.  At Granny Smith, gold production decreased by 3 per cent from 290,300 ounces in 2017 to 280,400 ounces in 2018 due to lower 
grades mined.  In 2017, gold production at Darlot amounted to 39,200 ounces for the nine months to September 2017.

The average US dollar gold price achieved by the Group decreased marginally from US$1,255 per equivalent ounce in 2017 to US$1,251 per 
equivalent ounce in 2018.  The average rand gold price decreased by 1 per cent from R538,344 per kilogram to R531,253 per kilogram.  
The average Australian dollar gold price increased by 3 per cent from A$1,640 per ounce to A$1,694 per ounce.  The average US dollar 
gold price for the Ghanaian operations (including Asanko) increased by 1 per cent from US$1,255 per ounce in 2017 to US$1,265 per ounce 
in 2018.  The average equivalent US dollar gold price, net of treatment and refining charges, for Cerro Corona decreased by 6 per cent 
from US$1,252 per equivalent ounce in 2017 to US$1,174 per equivalent ounce in 2018.  The average US dollar/Rand exchange rate 
strengthened by 1 per cent from R13.33 in 2017 to R13.20 in 2018.  The average Australian/US dollar exchange rate weakened by 3 per 
cent from A$1.00 = US$0.77 in 2017 to A$1.00 = US$0.75 in 2018.

Revenue decreased by 7 per cent from US$2,762 million in 2017 to US$2,578 million in 2018 due to the lower ounces sold.

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation
Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation increased by 1 per cent from US$1,357 million in 2017 to US$1,375 million in 2018. 

At the South Africa region, at South Deep, cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation decreased by 12 per cent from 
R4,062 million (US$305 million) in 2017 to R3,586 million (US$272 million) in 2018 mainly due to lower production as a result of 
industrial action, lower expenditure on consumables, contractors, labour and utility costs, partially offset by a R127 million 
(US$10 million) gold inventory charge to cost in 2018 compared with a credit to cost of R21 million (US$2 million) in 2017.

At the West Africa region, cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation increased by 10 per cent from US$428 million in 2017 to 
US$471 million in 2018.  At Tarkwa, cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 1 per cent from US$306 million to 
US$309 million due to a gold-in-process charge to cost, partially offset by lower mining costs in line with lower operational tonnes 
mined.  The US$10 million gold-in-process charge to costs in 2018 compared with a credit to costs of US$42 million in 2017.  In 2017, 
higher volumes were mined and stockpiled.  At Damang, cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 2 per cent from 
US$122 million in 2017 to US$124 million in 2018 mainly due to higher operating tonnes mined, partially offset by a gold-in-process 
credit to costs of US$19 million in 2018 compared with a charge to costs of US$1 million in 2017.  Cost of sales before amortisation 
and depreciation at Asanko amounted to US$37 million in 2018.

At the South America region, at Cerro Corona, cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation increased marginally from 
US$154 million in 2017 to US$155 million in 2018 mainly due to higher tonnes mined in 2018.

At the Australia region, cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation increased by 13 per cent from A$613 million 
(US$469 million) in 2017 to A$690 million (US$516 million) in 2018.  At St Ives, cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, 
increased by 20 per cent from A$207 million (US$159 million) in 2017 to A$249 million (US$186 million) in 2018 mainly due to increased 
underground mining cost as a result of increased ore tonnes mined, less cheaper open pit tonnes mined, increased processing maintenance 
cost and a lower gold inventory credit to costs. 

At Agnew, cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 10 per cent from A$197 million (US$150 million) in 2017 to 
A$216 million (US$162 million) in 2018 mainly due to increased mining cost and a gold-in-process charge to cost of A$2 million 
(US$2 million) in 2018 compared with a credit to costs of A$6 million (US$5 million) in 2017.  At Granny Smith, cost of sales before 
amortisation and depreciation, increased by 7 per cent from A$210 million (US$160 million) in 2017 to A$225 million (US$168 million) 
in 2018 mainly due to increased mining cost as a result of mining deeper zones.

Amortisation and depreciation
Amortisation and depreciation for the Group decreased by 11 per cent from US$748 million in 2017 to US$668 million in 2018.  
This decrease was mainly due to the increase in reserves at Cerro Corona in line with the life extension and at South Deep due to 
lower production. 

Other
Net interest expense for the Group increased by 6 per cent from US$63 million in 2017 to US$67 million in 2018.  Interest expense of 
US$92 million was partially offset by interest income of US$8 million and interest capitalised of US$17 million.  In 2017 interest 
expense of US$92 million was partially offset by interest income of US$6 million and interest capitalised of US$23 million.

The share of equity accounted losses increased from US$1 million in 2017 to US$13 million in 2018 mainly due to the US$12 million 
write-off of deferred costs and other non-recoverable amounts at Far Southeast project (FSE) as well as a loss of US$1 million related 
to the Group?s share of equity accounted loss on Asanko.  

The gain on foreign exchange of US$6 million in 2018 compared with a loss of US$4 million in 2017.  These gains and losses on foreign 
exchange related to the conversion of offshore cash holdings into their functional currencies.

The gain on financial instruments decreased by 38 per cent from US$34 million 2017 to US$21 million 2018. In 2018, the US$21 million 
comprised US$17 million on hedges and US$4 million on the mark to market on warrants.  The US$17 million included US$54 million 
realised gains, partially offset by US$37 million unrealised losses.  The gold hedge gains are analysed as follows: at the Australian 
operations (a loss of US$5 million/A$5 million), the Ghanaian operations (a gain of US$22 million) and South Deep (a loss of 
US$3 million/R43 million).  It also included realised and unrealised gains and losses on the oil hedges taken out at the Ghanaian and 
Australian operations (a gain of US$2 million and US$1 million/A$2 million, respectively), as well as the copper hedge taken out at 
Cerro Corona (gain of US$9 million).  In addition, a currency hedge taken out at the Australian operations resulted in a loss of 
US$9 million (A$12 million). 

Share-based payments for the Group increased by 41 per cent from US$27 million in 2017 to US$38 million in 2018 and related to the 
current valuation of the share scheme and changes in its composition.  Long-term employee benefits decreased by 80 per cent from 
US$5 million to US$1 million due to the current valuation of the plan. 

Other costs for the Group increased by 25 per cent from US$44 million to US$55 million. 

Exploration and project costs
Exploration and project costs decreased by 5 per cent from US$110 million in 2017 to US$104 million in 2018 mainly due a decrease in 
the write-off of brownfields exploration costs at the Australian operations from A$64 million (US$48 million) in 2017 to A$51 million 
(US$38 million) in 2018, partially offset by an increase in expenditure at Salares Norte from US$53 million in 2017 to US$61 million in 
2018.  The write-off of brownfields exploration is a non-cash item.  The balance of US$5 million mainly related to various exploration 
office costs.

Non-recurring items
Non-recurring expenses of US$633 million in 2018 compared with US$224 million in 2017. 

The non-recurring expenses for 2018 included:
-  impairment of R6.471 billion (US$482 million) in respect of the South Deep cash-generating unit.  The after tax impairment was 
   R4.819 billion (US$359 million).  The impairment was recognised in June 2018 and given that impairment indicators still existed at 
   31 December 2018, a further impairment assessment was performed.  

There were no further impairments at 31 December 2018 using the following assumptions:
   -  Gold price of R525,000 per kilogram for 2019 and R550,000 per kilogram thereafter;
   -  Reserve ounces used in discounted cash flow of 32.4 million ounces;
   -  Resource price of US$17 per ounce at a Rand/US dollar exchange rate of R14.63;
   -  Resource ounces of 24.5 million ounces;
   -  Life of mine 75 years; and
   -  Nominal discount rate of 13.5 per cent. 
-  restructuring costs at Tarkwa (US$89 million) with the transition to contractor mining;
-  restructuring costs at Damang (US$14 million);
-  restructuring costs at South Deep (US$11 million/R148 million);
-  losses on the sale of mining fleet and heavy machinery equipment and inventory at Tarkwa as part of the transition to contractor 
   mining, amounted to US$38 million and US$9 million, respectively; 
-  silicosis provision adjustment (US$5 million/R60 million); 
-  loss on sale of APP (US$15 million); 
-  impairment of FSE of US$37 million.  The impairment of FSE was based on the fair value less cost of disposal of the investment which 
   was directly derived from the market value of Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company; and
-  Gain on the acquisition of Asanko Gold mine of US$52 million.

The non-recurring expenses in 2017 included mainly:
-  Cash generating unit impairment of R3.495 billion (US$278 million) at South Deep.  The impairment calculation is based on the 2017 
   life of mine plan using the following assumptions:
   -  Gold price decreased from a long-term R600,000 per kilogram to R525,000 per kilogram;
   -  Resource price decreased from R842 per ounce to R216 per ounce due to a decrease in the dollar price per ounce from US$60 per 
      ounce to US$17 per ounce and a stronger Rand/Dollar exchange rate from R14.03 to R12.58.  This was partially offset by an 
      increase in resource ounces of 3.8 million ounces from 25.2 million ounces to 29.0 million ounces;
   -  Life of mine: 77 years; and
   -  Discount rate: 13.5 per cent nominal.

The above assumptions do not affect the steady state production target of circa 500,000 ounces by 2022.  
-  Silicosis provision raised (US$30 million);
-  Write-off of parked fleet at Tarkwa (US$7 million);
-  Retrenchment costs (US$9 million) mainly at Tarkwa (US$5 million), South Deep (US$2 million) and Damang (US$2 million); 
-  Write-off of Damang assets (US$3 million); and
-  Impairment of investments (US$4 million).

This was partially offset by:
-  Reversal of cash-generating unit impairment: gross US$53 million, tax US$15 million, net US$38 million at Cerro Corona.  The 
   impairment calculation is based on the 2017 life of mine plan using the following assumptions:
   -  Gold price 2018: US$1,200 per ounce, 2019 onwards: US$1,300 per ounce;
   -  Copper price 2018: US$2.50 per pound, 2019 onwards: US$2.80 per pound;
   -  Resource price: US$41 per ounce;
   -  Life of mine: 13 years; and 
   -  Discount rate: 4.8 per cent.

The reversal of the impairment is due to a higher net present value as a result of the completion of a pre-feasibility study in 2017 
extending the life of mine from 2023 to 2030 by optimising the tailings density and increasing tailings capacity by using in-pit 
tailings after mining activities end.
-  Reversal of the APP impairment (US$39 million); 
-  Profit on the sale of Darlot (US$24 million/A$31 million); and
-  Lower rehabilitation provisions of US$13 million mainly at St Ives due to a new mine closure plan (A$15 million/US$11 million).

Royalties
Government royalties for the Group increased marginally from US$62 million in 2017 to US$63 million in 2018.

Taxation
The taxation credit for the Group of US$66 million in 2018 compared with a charge of US$173 million in 2017.  Normal taxation decreased 
from US$205 million to US$146 million.  The deferred tax credit of US$212 million in 2018 compared with US$32 million in 2017. 

The significant deferred tax credit arose due to the taxation credit of R1.652 billion (US$123 million) on the impairment of South 
Deep.  In addition, as a result of the settlement of the South Deep tax dispute, Gold Fields has recognised an additional 
R2.708 billion (US$205 million) of capital allowances with a tax effect of R812 million (US$62 million). 

Discontinued operation - Darlot
The net loss in 2017 from the discontinued operation, Darlot, net of tax of US$13 million was a result of revenue of A$64 million 
(US$49 million), cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation of A$62 million (US$47 million) with the balance relating to other 
costs.  The revenue of A$64 million (US$49 million) related to 39,200 ounces sold at a gold price of A$1,637 per ounce (US$1,252 per 
ounce).

Loss/profit 
Net loss attributable to owners of the parent of US$348 million or US$0.42 per share in 2018 compared with a loss US$19 million or 
US$0.02 per share in 2017.

Headline earnings attributable to owners of the parent of US$61 million or US$0.07 per share in 2018 compared with headline earnings 
of US$210 million or US$0.26 per share in 2017. 

Normalised profit of US$27 million or US$0.03 per share in 2018 compared with US$154 million or US$0.19 per share in 2017.

Normalised profit is considered an important measure by Gold Fields of the profit realised by the Group in the ordinary course of 
operations.  In addition, it forms the basis of the dividend pay-out policy.  Non-IFRS measures such as normalised results are 
considered as pro forma financial information as per the JSE Listing Requirements.  The pro forma financial information is the 
responsibility of the Group?s Board of Directors and is presented for illustration purposes only and because of its nature, normalised 
profit should not be considered as a representation of earnings.  

This pro forma financial information has been reported on by KPMG Inc. in terms of ISAE 3420 and their unmodified report is available 
for inspection on the Gold Fields website (http://www.goldfields.com).  

Cash flow 
Cash inflow from operating activities of US$613 million in 2018 compared with US$832 million in 2017, a 26 per cent decrease due to 
lower gold sold and higher restructuring costs.  

Dividends paid/advanced of US$55 million in 2018 compared with US$69 million in 2017.  Dividends paid to owners of the parent decreased 
from US$63 million in 2017 to US$46 million in 2018.  Dividends paid to non-controlling interest holders of US$10 million in 2018 
compared with US$6 million in 2017.  

Cash outflow from investing activities decreased from US$909 million in 2017 to US$896 million in 2018 due to a decrease in sustaining 
capital expenditure mainly at South Deep, Tarkwa and St Ives, partially offset by an increase in growth capital expenditure at Gruyere, 
Damang and South Deep.  Capital expenditure decreased from US$834 million in 2017 to US$814 million in 2018 due to lower sustaining 
capital expenditure as planned.  Growth expenditure of US$125 million was incurred on the Damang reinvestment project and A$180 million 
(US$134 million) was incurred on Gruyere.  In accordance with the Joint Venture agreement entered into at the time of acquisition, 
Gold Fields will fund up to 10 per cent of the cost overrun, excluding scope changes and force majeure costs.  The Gruyere overruns of 
10 per cent will be funded in 2019.  This compared with growth expenditure of US$115 million on the Damang reinvestment project and 
A$106 million (US$81 million) on Gruyere.  Proceeds on disposal of assets of US$79 million in 2018 compared with US$23 million in 2017 
and related to disposal of assets as part of the conversion to contractor mining at Tarkwa in 2018 and Damang in 2017.  Purchase of 
investments of US$19 million in 2018 compared with US$80 million in 2017.  In 2018, it related mainly to the purchase of shares in 
Asanko.  

Purchase of Asanko of US$165 million related to the Joint Venture transaction with Asanko Gold (Asanko) which was completed on 
31 July 2018.  Gold Fields acquired a 50 per cent stake in Asanko?s 90 per cent interest in the Asanko Gold mine in Ghana.  

Proceeds on disposal of assets held for sale of US$40 million in 2018 related to the sale of APP.

Cash outflow from operating activities less net capital expenditure, environmental payments and finance lease payments of 
US$132 million in 2018 compared with an outflow of US$2 million in 2017.  The US$132 million outflow in 2018 comprised: US$191 million 
net cash generated by the seven mining operations (after royalties, taxes, capital expenditure and environmental payments), less 
US$77 million of net interest paid, US$77 million for exploration mainly at Salares Norte (this excludes any mine based brownfields 
exploration which is included in the US$191 million above), US$163 million (AS$218 million) at Gruyere [capital expenditure of 
US$134 million (A$180 million) and an investment into working capital of US$29 million (A$38 million), mainly due to timing of cash 
calls from the EPC contractor], as well as US$6 million on non-mine based costs.  Included in the US$191 million above is 
US$125 million capital expenditure on the Damang reinvestment project and US$18 million on South Deep growth capital expenditure. 
If these two amounts are excluded, then the mining operations generated US$334 million in net cash.  Adding back the negative 
US$141 million for South Deep, the core international operations generated US$475 million. 

The US$2 million outflow in 2017 comprised: US$309 million net cash generated by the seven mining operations (after royalties, taxes, 
capital expenditure and environmental payments), less US$72 million of net interest paid, US$58 million for exploration mainly at 
Salares Norte (this excludes any mine based brownfields exploration which is included in the US$309 million above), US$141 million 
(A$184 million) at Gruyere [capital expenditure of US$81 million (A$106 million) and an investment into working capital of 
US$60 million (A$78 million), mainly due to cash calls on the balance of the deferred payment balance and stamp duty], as well as 
US$40 million on non-mine based costs.  Included in the US$309 million above is US$115 million capital expenditure on the Damang 
reinvestment project and US$17 million on South Deep growth capital expenditure. If these two amounts are excluded, then the mining 
operations generated US$441 million. 

In the South Africa region at South Deep, capital expenditure decreased from R1,099 million (US$82 million) in 2017 to R770 million 
(US$58 million) in 2018 mainly due to lower expenditure on fleet and surface infrastructure. 

At the West Africa region, (excluding Asanko), capital expenditure decreased from US$313 million to US$295 million.  At Tarkwa, 
capital expenditure decreased from US$181 million to US$156 million due to lower capital waste stripping and lower fleet expenditure 
as a consequence of the revised optimised life of mine plan and the conversion from owner mining to contractor mining.  Capital 
expenditure at Damang increased from US$132 million to US$139 million mainly due to higher expenditure on the Damang reinvestment 
project (US$125 million).  

Capital expenditure at Asanko amounted to US$13 million for the 5 months ended December 2018.  The Asanko capital expenditure is not 
included in the Group capital expenditure.

In the South America region at Cerro Corona, capital expenditure decreased from US$34 million to US$33 million mainly due to lower 
expenditure on the construction of the tailings dam and waste storage facilities.

At the Australia region, capital expenditure decreased from A$414 million (US$317 million) in 2017 to A$373 million (US$279 million) 
in 2018.  At St Ives, capital expenditure decreased from A$204 million (US$156 million) in 2017 to A$170 million (US$127 million) in 
2018 due to lower expenditure at the open pits following completion of activities at Invincible open pit stage 5.  At Agnew, capital 
expenditure increased from A$96 million (US$74 million) in 2017 to A$98 million (US$73 million) in 2018.  At Granny Smith, capital 
expenditure decreased from A$114 million (US$87 million) in 2017 to A$105 million (US$79 million) in 2018 due to completion of the 
VR8 ventilation shaft in 2017.  

Capital expenditure at the discontinued operation, Darlot, amounted to A$9 million (US$7 million) in 2017.  

Net cash inflow from financing activities of US$257 million in 2018 compared with US$84 million in 2017.  The inflow in 2018 related 
to a drawdown of US$692 million, partially offset by the repayment of US$432 million on offshore and local loans and US$3 million from 
finance lease payments.  The inflow in 2017 related to a drawdown of US$780 million, partially offset by the repayment of 
US$696 million on offshore and local loans.

The net cash outflow for the Group of US$72 million in 2018 compared with US$62 million in 2017.  The cash balance of US$400 million 
in 2018 compared with US$479 million in 2017. 

All-in sustaining and total all-in cost
The Group all-in sustaining costs increased by 3 per cent from US$955 per ounce in 2017 to US$981 per ounce in 2018 mainly due to 
lower gold sold, partially offset by lower cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation and lower sustaining capital expenditure.  
Total all-in cost increased by 8 per cent from US$1,088 per ounce in 2017 to US$1,173 per ounce in 2018 for the same reasons as for 
all-in sustaining costs and due to higher non-sustaining capital expenditure and higher exploration, feasibility and evaluation costs. 

In the South Africa region, at South Deep, all-in sustaining costs increased by 41 per cent from R574,406 per kilogram (US$1,340 per 
ounce) to R807,688 per kilogram (US$1,903 per ounce) mainly due to lower gold sold, partially offset by lower cost of sales before 
amortisation and depreciation and lower sustaining capital expenditure.  The total all-in cost increased by 42 per cent from 
R600,109 per kilogram (US$1,400 per ounce) to R854,049 per kilogram (US$2,012 per ounce) due to the same reasons as for all-in 
sustaining costs as well as higher non-sustaining capital expenditure. 

At the West Africa region, all-in sustaining costs decreased by 3 per cent from US$958 per ounce in 2017 to US$926 per ounce in 2018 
mainly due to higher gold sold and lower sustaining capital expenditure, partially offset by higher cost of sales before amortisation 
and depreciation.  Results for Asanko were included for 5 months in 2018.  Total all-in cost decreased by 2 per cent from US$1,119 per 
ounce in 2017 to US$1,098 per ounce in 2018 due to the same reasons as for all-in sustaining costs and higher non-sustaining capital 
expenditure of US$125 million on the Damang reinvestment project and US$5 million at Asanko.

At the South America region, all-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost increased by 39 per cent from US$203 per ounce to US$282 per 
ounce mainly due to lower gold sold, lower by-product credits, and higher cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, partially 
offset by lower capital expenditure.  All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost per equivalent ounce increased by 4 per cent from 
US$673 per equivalent ounce to US$699 per equivalent ounce mainly due to the same reasons as above as well as lower equivalent ounces 
sold.

At the Australia region, all-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost increased by 4 per cent from A$1,210 per ounce (US$926 per 
ounce) in 2017 to A$1,262 per ounce (US$943 per ounce) in 2018 mainly due to higher cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation 
and lower gold sold, partially offset by lower capital expenditure. 

Statement of financial position
Net debt (borrowings plus the current portion of borrowings less cash and cash equivalents) increased from US$1,303 million for the 
year ended December 2017 to US$1,612 million for the year ended December 2018.  

Net debt/adjusted EBITDA
The net debt/adjusted EBITDA ratio of 1.45 at 31 December 2018 compared with 1.03 at the end of the financial year ended 31 December

Regrettably, a tragic accident occurred on 12 October 2018 fatally injuring Mr. Ananias Mosololi.  The mine was issued with a Section 
54 instruction, halting mobile machinery and secondly to conduct an investigation.  A partial upliftment was issued on 18 October 2018 
with a full upliftment on 31 October 2018.  18 days of production was either lost or significantly impacted.  The fatality occurred 
shortly after the mine had achieved 2 million fatality free shifts following 18 months of being fatality free.

South Deep embarked on a restructuring process on 14 August 2018 as reported in the September quarter.  The prescribed consultation 
process was concluded on 28 October 2018 culminating in the retrenchment of 1,092 permanent employee?s and 420 contractors.  The 
majority union, the NUM, obtained a certificate of non-resolution from the CCMA and issued a notice of intended industrial action on 
31 October 2018.  The protected industrial action commenced on 2 November 2018 and lasted 6 weeks.  Employees participating in the 
industrial action blocked all roads to the mine, limiting access and the ability to continue with any mining operations. Production was 
therefore suspended and essential services continued on an intermittent basis when access was possible.  Negotiations with all levels 
of the union (branch, regional and national) concluded on 18 December 2018 with the signing of a new agreement that ended the 
industrial action.  The mine gradually resumed operations from 15 December 2018.  The process had a profound impact on production with 
the operations suspended for 41 days with a preceding "go slow" and acts of sabotage as from the announcement of restructuring.  It 
took an additional 8 days to start-up the underground sections post 15 December 2018. 

Gold production decreased by 44 per cent from 8,748 kilograms (281,248 ounces) in 2017 to 4,885 kilograms (157,043 ounces) in 2018 due 
to decreased volumes. In addition to the above-mentioned incidences, production in 2018 was impacted by extensive rehabilitation work 
in the main access ramps during the year as well as a management restructuring process conducted in the March 2018 quarter.  Production 
was also impacted by geotechnical constraints (associated with the previous low profile destress cuts which were converted to high 
profile crush pillar design) and exacerbated by geological features in front of these cuts (Fargo 2 fault in corridor 4 and the Gray 
ghost dyke on corridor 3).  These pillars were deteriorating faster than anticipated, causing seismicity and increasingly difficult 
stoping and backfilling conditions.  A faster stoping sequence was designed to manage the deteriorating ground conditions.  To enable 
mining to progress in corridor 3, a bracket pillar was designed around the Grey ghost dyke.  Destress is planned to commence on the 
opposite side of the pillar, but in the process 92,000 ounces of gold reserves were sterilised.  Geotechnical conditions are expected 
to improve once we transition away from the low profile cuts and old pillar design. 

Total underground tonnes mined decreased by 35 per cent from 1.61 million tonnes in 2017 to 1.04 million tonnes in 2018.  Underground 
ore tonnes mined decreased by 41 per cent from 1.42 million tonnes in 2017 to 0.84 million tonnes in 2018.  Underground reef grade 
increased by 3 per cent from 5.89 grams per tonne to 6.04 grams per tonne in 2018.  Underground waste mined increased by 6 per cent 
from 188,670 tonnes to 200,492 tonnes as a result of increased footwall infrastructure, capital waste development and development to 
establish infrastructure for new destress cuts.  Gold mined from underground decreased by 40 per cent from 8,364 kilograms 
(268,900 ounces) to 5,048 kilograms (162,300 ounces).  Underground grade mined (ore and waste) decreased by 6 per cent from 5.20 grams 
per tonne in 2017 to 4.87 grams per tonne in 2018 as a result of ore tonnes mined as a percentage of total tonnes mined decreasing from 
88 per cent to 81 per cent. 

Total tonnes milled decreased by 37 per cent from 2.08 million tonnes in 2017 to 1.32 million tonnes in 2018.  Underground ore tonnes 
milled decreased by 44 per cent from 1.48 million tonnes in 2017 to 0.83 million tonnes in 2018.  Underground waste milled increased by 
27 per cent from 165,000 tonnes to 210,000 tonnes.  Surface tailings material treated decreased by 35 per cent from 433,408 tonnes to 
281,607 tonnes.  Underground reef yield decreased slightly from 5.87 grams per tonne to 5.85 grams per tonne. 

Development decreased by 27 per cent from 6,897 metres in 2017 to 5,047 metres in 2018.  New mine capital development (phase one, sub 
95 level) increased by 1 per cent from 976 metres in 2017 to 988 metres in 2018.  Capital footwall development on 100 level and below 
was suspended during the restructuring process in the September quarter, as it was ahead of schedule.  On reef-plane stope access 
development and destress cut access development decreased by 31 per cent from 5,921 metres in 2017 to 4,059 metres in 2018 due to the 
suspension of development activities in 87 1W and 2W in the September quarter.  The suspension of activities in the section formed part 
of the restructuring process. Destress attributable square metres mined decreased by 44 per cent from 33,419 square metres in 2017 to 
18,793 square metres in 2018 due to the implementation of a new support standard and related backlog catch-up together with negotiation 
of geological features as well as a result of the industrial action from the restructuring process.  

Longhole stoping volume mined decreased by 40 per cent from 766,857 tonnes in 2017 to 463,348 tonnes in 2018 mainly due to the backfill 
leakages in the stopes, restructuring, as well as the industrial action.  

The current mine (95 level and above) contributed 55 per cent of the ore tonnes in 2018, while the new mine (North of Wrench) 
contributed 45 per cent.

The mine implemented six key focus areas through a business improvement framework to drive improved performance and a number of 
supporting initiatives and projects are being initiated.  The six focus areas are:
-  Enabling Visible Felt Leadership (PVFL); 
-  Reinvigorating our leadership system;
-  Improving face time;
-  Effective face time
-  Enabling logistics; and 
-  Implementing of innovation and technology.

These initiatives have started to yield positive results, notably, a 45 per cent improvement in total recordable injury rates as well 
as a reduction on the lost time injuries.  In addition, there has been a marginal and steady improvement in the reliability of 
equipment (high profile rigs in particular), improvement in the shaft schedule arrangements and improvements in excavation quality and 
face advance. 

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, decreased by 12 per cent from R4,062 million (US$305 million) in 2017 to 
R3,586 million (US$272 million) in 2018.  The decrease was mainly due to lower production exacerbated by the industrial action in the 
December quarter.  Cost of sales before gold inventory change and amortisation and depreciation decreased by 15 per cent from 
R4,083 million (US$306 million) in 2017 to R3,459 million (US$262 million) in 2018 due to the industrial action in November and 
December 2018.  The re-setting of the fixed cost base through the restructuring that amounted to R148 million (paid as separation 
packages) is planned to realise savings of ~R600 million in 2018 terms on the labour bill in 2019 (If the restructuring did not take 
place, the labour bill for 2019 would have been R1.9 billion against the current plan of R1.3 billion).  Consumable costs decreased as 
a result of tighter cost management through the implementation of bills of material on mining consumables and standards and norms on 
metallurgical plant consumables.  Contractor costs decreased as a result of the completion of the artisan training by various business 
partners in 2017.  Labour costs decreased due to the restructuring in 2018, control around overtime and fixed allowances and lower 
bonuses paid as a result of lower production.  Utilities were lower year on year as a result of lower production and lower consumption 
during the strike period in the December 2018 quarter.  This was partially offset by a gold inventory charge to cost of R127 million 
(US$10 million) in 2018 compared with a gold inventory credit to cost of R21 million (US$2 million) in 2017.  

Capital expenditure decreased by 30 per cent from R1,099 million (US$82 million) in 2017 to R770 million (US$58 million) in 2018.  

Sustaining capital expenditure decreased by 40 per cent from R874 million (US$66 million) in 2017 to R528 million (US$40 million) in 
2018 mainly due to lower spend on fleet, and surface infrastructure.  Non-sustaining capital expenditure increased by 8 per cent from 
R225 million (US$17 million) to R242 million (US$18 million) due to higher expenditure on new mine development infrastructure and more 
metres developed compared to 2017.   

All-in sustaining costs increased by 41 per cent from R574,406 per kilogram (US$1,340 per ounce) in 2017 to R807,688 per kilogram 
(US$1,903 per ounce) in 2018 mainly due to lower gold sold, partially offset by lower sustaining capital expenditure and lower cost 
of sales before amortisation and depreciation. 

Total all-in cost increased by 42 per cent from R600,109 per kilogram (US$1,400 per ounce) in 2017 to R854,049 per kilogram 
(US$2,012 per ounce) in 2018 due to the same reasons as for all-in sustaining costs as well as higher non-sustaining capital 
expenditure.  

Guidance 
The estimate for calendar 2019 is as follows:
-  Gold produced ~ 6,000 kilograms (193,000 ounces) of which 99,615 ounces of gold were hedged at an average price of R616,581 per 
   kilogram
-  Destress square metres ~ 30,000 square meters
-  Development metres ~ 6,182 meters 
-  Sustaining capital expenditure ~ R490 million (US$36 million), reduction of R280 million (US$21 million) compared with 2018;
-  Non-sustaining capital expenditure ~ Rnil (US$nil) 
-  Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation ~ R3.2 billion (US$238 million), reduction of R600 million (US$75 million) 
   compared with 2018, which includes a planned labour bill decrease of ~ R400 million (US$30 million)
-  All-in sustaining costs ~ R610,000 per kilogram (US$1,394 per ounce)
-  Total all-in cost ~ R610,000 per kilogram (US$1,394 per ounce)

As planned, gold production decreased by 7 per cent from 566,400 ounces in 2017 to 524,900 ounces in 2018 due to lower volumes and 
lower grades mined.

Total tonnes mined, including capital stripping, decreased by 14 per cent from 103.8 million tonnes in 2017 to 89.6 million tonnes in 
2018.  Ore tonnes mined decreased by 15 per cent from 16.7 million tonnes to 14.2 million tonnes.  Operational waste tonnes mined 
decreased by 30 per cent from 35.5 million tonnes to 25.0 million tonnes and capital waste tonnes mined decreased by 2 per cent from 
51.6 million tonnes to 50.4 million tonnes.  The decrease was mainly due to change in strategy to reduce mining volume from 100 million 
tonnes per annum to 85 million tonnes per annum and the focus on capital waste strip.  Head grade mined decreased by 5 per cent from 
1.32 grams per tonne to 1.26 grams per tonne.  Gold mined decreased by 20 per cent from 711,000 ounces to 572,100 ounces.  The overall 
reduction of total mined tonnes, capital stripping, ore tonnes mined and head grade mined was mainly due to a change in strategy to 
reduce mining volumes from 100 million tonnes per annum to 85 million tonnes per annum in line with the 2018 plan.  This will sustain 
a long term cost effective production profile of around 500,000 ounces per year for the next decade and likely beyond with further 
possible extension to existing pits. The strip ratio increased from 5.2 to 5.3.

The CIL plant throughput increased by 2 per cent from 13.5 million tonnes in 2017 to 13.8 million tonnes in 2018 due to increased plant 
availability.  Realised yield from the CIL plant decreased by 9 per cent from 1.30 grams per tonne to 1.18 grams per tonne due to lower 
head grade mined and processing of 2.4 million tonnes of stockpiles at 0.73 grams per tonne.  This compared with 1.2 million tonnes of 
stockpiles processed in 2017 at a grade of 0.76 grams per tonne.  Medium grade stockpiles were processed in 2018, while stockpiling 
lower grade material mined.

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 1 per cent from US$306 million in 2017 to US$309 million in 2018 due 
to a gold-in-process charge to cost, partially offset by lower mining costs in line with lower operational tonnes mined.  The 
US$10 million gold-in-process charge to costs in 2018 compared with a credit to costs of US$42 million in 2017.  In 2017, higher 
volumes were mined and stockpiled compared to 2018.

Capital expenditure decreased by 14 per cent from US$181 million to US$156 million mainly due to lower expenditure on capital waste 
stripping and mining fleet.  Mining fleet expenditure including componentisation was US$4 million in 2018 compared with US$33 million 
in 2017.  This was mainly due to transitioning to contract mining and the transfer of the mining fleet to the mining contractors.

All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost increased by 1 per cent from US$940 per ounce in 2017 to US$951 per ounce in 2018 due to 
higher cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation and lower gold sold, partially offset by lower capital expenditure.

Guidance 
The estimate for calendar 2019 is as follows:
-  Gold produced ~ 514,000 ounces.  The lower gold is in line with the revised life of mine plan
-  Capital expenditure ~ US$113 million
-  All-in sustaining costs ~ US$949 per ounce
-  Total all-in cost ~ US$949 per ounce

Gold production increased by 26 per cent from 143,600 ounces in 2017 to 180,800 ounces in 2018 mainly due to higher head grade and 
yield.

Total tonnes mined, including capital stripping, increased by 16 per cent from 39.7 million tonnes in 2017 (25.7 million tonnes from 
Amoanda and other satellite pits and 14.0 million tonnes from the Damang Pit Cut Back (DPCB) to 45.9 million tonnes in 2018 
(15.2 million tonnes from Amoanda and other satellite pits and 30.7 million tonnes from the DPCB) due to improved operational 
performance from the contractors? mining fleet and improved mining efficiencies. 

Ore tonnes mined increased by 36 per cent from 3.3 million tonnes to 4.5 million tonnes mainly from Amoanda pit area where the ore 
zones are exposed.  Operational waste tonnes mined increased by 47 per cent from 5.3 million tonnes to 7.8 million tonnes mainly as a 
result of mining capital waste tonnes in 2017, to align with the new mining strategy.  Capital waste tonnes mined increased by 8 per 
cent from 31.1 million tonnes in 2017 to 33.6 million tonnes in 2018 mainly due to higher volumes mined from the DPCB pits which are in 
the early stages of the current cutback.  Head grade mined increased by 46 per cent from 1.15 grams per tonne in 2017 to 1.68 grams per 
tonne in 2018 due to high grade ore mined from the Amoanda pits.  Gold mined increased by 97 per cent from 122,700 ounces to 
242,300 ounces.  The strip ratio decreased from 10.9 to 9.2 due to exposed ore surfaces mined at the Amoanda pit. 

Tonnes processed decreased by 8 per cent from 4.59 million tonnes in 2017 to 4.21 million tonnes in 2018 due to lower plant overall 
equipment availability as a result of a planned 16 day shutdown to replace the SAG mill shell.  Yield increased by 38 per cent from 
0.97 grams per tonne to 1.34 grams per tonne due to higher feed grade.  In 2018, 3.38 million tonnes of fresh ore and oxides were 
milled at an average grade of 1.67 grams per tonne and 0.83 million tonnes of stockpiles were milled at an average grade of 0.74 grams 
per tonne.  This compared with 2.83 million tonnes of fresh ore and oxides that was milled at an average grade of 1.16 grams per tonne 
and 1.76 million tonnes of stockpiles that was milled at an average grade of 0.68 grams per tonne in 2017.  The stockpiles at 
31 December 2018 consisted of the ROM stockpile of 0.8 million tonnes at a grade of 1.30 grams per tonne and a crushed ore stockpile 
of 0.2 million tonnes at a grade of 1.59 grams per tonne.

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 2 per cent from US$122 million in 2017 to US$124 million in 2018 
mainly due to higher operating tonnes mined, partially offset by a gold-in-process credit to costs of US$19 million in 2018 compared 
with a charge to costs of US$1 million in 2017.

Capital expenditure increased by 5 per cent from US$132 million to US$139 million.

Sustaining capital expenditure decreased by 18 per cent from US$17 million in 2017 to US$14 million in 2018, mainly due to the pre-
development work on the Damang reinvestment project in 2017.  Non-sustaining capital expenditure increased by 9 per cent from 
US$115 million to US$125 million mainly due to higher capital waste mined (34 million tonnes mined in 2018 compared with 31 million 
tonnes mined in 2017). 

All-in sustaining cost decreased by 21 per cent from US$1,027 per ounce in 2017 to US$813 per ounce in 2018 due to higher gold sold 
and lower sustaining capital expenditure, partially offset by higher cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation. 

Total all-in cost decreased by 18 per cent from US$1,827 per ounce in 2017 to US$1,506 per ounce in 2018 due to the same reasons as 
for all-in sustaining cost, partially offset by increased non-sustaining capital expenditure. 

Guidance 
The estimate for calendar 2019 is as follows:
-  Gold produced ~ 218,000 ounces
-  Sustaining capital expenditure ~ US$6 million
-  Growth capital expenditure ~ US$69 million
-  All-in sustaining costs ~ US$786 per ounce
-  Total all-in cost ~ US$1,100 per ounce

All figures in table 100 per cent basis

Gold production for the five months ended December 2018 was 98,900 ounces.

Total tonnes mined for the five months ended December 2018 were 16.9 million tonnes. Ore tonnes mined were 2.5 million tonnes.  
Head grade mined was 1.48 grams per tonne.

Total waste tonnes mined was 14.3 million tonnes.  The strip ratio was 5.7 for the five months ended December 2018.

The plant throughput was 2.1 million tonnes for the five months ended December 2018 and yield was 1.50 grams per tonne.  

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation for the five months ended December 2018 was US$83 million.

Sustaining capital expenditure for the five months ended December 2018 was US$18 million.  Non-sustaining capital expenditure amounted 
to US$11 million and included construction of the haul road and other expenditure related to the Esaase project, which commenced 
production in early 2019. 

All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost for the five months ended December 2018 was US$1,069 per ounce and US$1,175 per ounce, 
respectively.

Gold Fields? 45 per cent share of gold produced and gold sold for the 5 months ending December 2018 amounted to 44,500 ounces and 
45,900 ounces, respectively.  Gold Fields share of cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation amounted to US$37 million and 
that of sustaining capital expenditure and non-sustaining capital expenditure amounted to US$8 million and US$5 million, respectively.  
The above translates to a US$1 million loss related to the Group?s share of equity accounted losses.

Guidance 
The estimate for calendar 2019 is as follows:
-  Gold produced ~ 225,000 ounces to 245,000 ounces
-  Sustaining capital expenditure ~ US$7 million
-  Growth capital expenditure ~ US$18 million
-  All-in sustaining costs ~ US$1,040 per ounce to US$1,060 per ounce
-  Total all-in cost ~ US$1,130 per ounce to US$1,150 per ounce
-  Gold Fields share of production ~ 101,000 ounces to 110,000 ounces

The large Western pushback at the Nkran pit will result in the strip ratio and mining costs remaining elevated during 2019.  However, 
the strip levels at Nkran normalise in 2020, at which point the higher-grade production from the shallow Esaase oxides will be ramping 
up, having a material positive impact on unit costs.  In addition, Gold Fields is working with our JV partners on a cost optimisation 
exercise which is expected to result in further cost reductions.  We will provide updated near-term guidance on costs when we release 
the updated life of mine plan in H2 2019.  Which update will take account of the longer term potential of the Esaase project which is 
expected to become the centre of gravity for the operation.

Gold production decreased by 6 per cent from 159,000 ounces in 2017 to 149,900 ounces in 2018.  Copper production increased by 6 per 
cent from 30,200 tonnes to 32,000 tonnes.  Equivalent gold production increased by 2 per cent from 306,700 ounces to 314,100 ounces.  
The increase in equivalent gold production was due to the higher copper price ratio as well as higher copper production due to higher 
copper head grade.  Gold head grade decreased by 2 per cent from 1.08 grams per tonne to 1.06 grams per tonne and copper head grade 
increased by 8 per cent from 0.52 per cent to 0.56 per cent.  

Gold recoveries decreased by 3 per cent from 70.4 per cent to 68.1 per cent with ore processed from the south zone of the pit with a 
higher clay content, typically with different metallurgical behaviour.  Copper recoveries decreased by 1 per cent from 88.9 per cent to 
88.0 per cent.  Gold yield decreased by 4 per cent from 0.76 grams per tonne to 0.73 grams per tonne.  Copper yield increased by 9 per 
cent from 0.46 per cent to 0.50 per cent.  

In 2018, concentrate with a payable content of 141,041 ounces of gold was sold at an average price of US$1,254 per ounce and 
30,742 tonnes of copper was sold at an average price of US$5,767 per tonne, net of treatment and refining charges.  This compared with 
164,715 ounces of gold that was sold at an average price of US$1,261 per ounce and 30,377 tonnes of copper that was sold at an average 
price of US$5,546 per tonne, net of treatment and refining charges in 2017.  Total equivalent gold sales decreased by 5 per cent from 
313,800 ounces in 2017 to 299,100 ounces in 2018 due to lower gold produced and higher concentrate stock on hand in December 2018.

Total tonnes mined increased by 38 per cent from 15.75 million tonnes in 2017 to 21.78 million tonnes in 2018 in line with the mining 
sequence and life extension plan.  Ore mined decreased by 3 per cent from 7.09 million tonnes to 6.85 million tonnes.  Waste tonnes 
mined increased by 72 per cent from 8.66 million tonnes to 14.93 million tonnes.  The strip ratio increased from 1.22 to 2.18 as a 
result of the increased waste mined in 2018. 

Ore processed decreased by 2 per cent from 6.80 million tonnes in 2017 to 6.64 million tonnes in 2018 mainly due to lower plant 
throughput (802 tonnes per hour in 2018 versus 815 tonnes per hour in 2017) and lower utilisation due to harder ore.

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased marginally from US$154 million in 2017 to US$155 million in 2018.  
The higher cost was due to higher mining expenditure as a result of increased tonnes mined in 2018, partially offset by a US$6 million 
credit to costs of concentrate inventory in 2018 compared with a US$3 million charge to costs in 2017. 

Capital expenditure decreased by 3 per cent from US$34 million to US$33 million due to lower expenditure on the tailings dam and waste 
storage facilities.

All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost increased by 39 per cent from US$203 per ounce in 2017 to US$282 per ounce in 2018, 
mainly due to lower by-product credits, lower gold sold and higher cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation.  All-in 
sustaining costs and total all-in costs per equivalent ounce increased by 4 per cent from US$673 per equivalent ounce to US$699 per 
equivalent ounce mainly due to the same reasons as above and lower equivalent ounces sold.

Guidance 
The estimate for calendar 2019 is as follows:
-  Gold equivalents produced ~ 291,000 ounces
-  Gold only produced ~ 153,000 ounces
-  Copper tonnes produced ~ 27,684 tonnes
-  Capital expenditure ~ US$55 million
-  Copper price ~ US$2.70 per pound*
-  Gold price ~ US$1,200 per ounce*
-  All-in sustaining costs ~ US$802 per equivalent ounce
-  Total all-in cost ~ US$802 per equivalent ounce
-  All-in sustaining costs ~ US$566 per ounce
-  Total all-in cost ~ US$566 per ounce
* For purposes of calculating equivalent ounces

The decrease in copper tonnes produced is due to lower copper head grades based on mining sequence.

The increase in capital expenditure is due to construction of the waste storage facilities (WSF) as part of the 2030 Lom expansion.

Gold production increased by 1 per cent from 363,900 ounces in 2017 to 366,900 ounces in 2018.  

Total tonnes mined decreased by 49 per cent from 42.63 million tonnes in 2017 to 21.67 million tonnes in 2018. Gold mined decreased by 
6 per cent from 438,500 ounces to 412,000 ounces. 

At the underground operations, ore mined increased by 90 per cent from 0.48 million tonnes in 2017 to 0.91 million tonnes in 2018 due 
to the commissioning of the new Invincible underground mine during 2018.  The grade mined decreased by 1 per cent from 4.13 grams per 
tonne to 4.08 grams per tonne and contained gold mined from underground increased by 86 per cent from 64,200 ounces in 2017 to 
119,400 ounces in 2018.

At the open pits total ore tonnes mined decreased by 15 per cent from 3.98 million tonnes in 2017 to 3.40 million tonnes in 2018 as a 
result of the completion of mining activities at the Invincible open pit stage 5 in September 2018.  Grade mined decreased by 8 per 
cent from 2.92 grams per tonne to 2.68 grams per tonne with lower grade areas of the Neptune pit mined in 2018.  Contained gold mined 
from the open pits decreased by 22 per cent from 374,300 ounces in 2017 to 292,600 ounces in 2018.

Operational waste tonnes mined decreased by 35 per cent from 9.03 million tonnes in 2017 to 5.84 million tonnes in 2018.  Capital waste 
tonnes mined decreased by 60 per cent from 29.12 million tonnes to 11.52 million tonnes.  The decrease in waste tonnes mined was as a 
result of the pre-strip being completed at Invincible mine.  The strip ratio decreased from 9.6 to 5.1.  

At the consolidated St Ives mine, ounces mined decreased by 6 per cent from 438,500 ounces in 2017 to 412,000 ounces in 2018.  In 2018, 
Neptune high-grade oxide material stockpiled amounted to 47,700 ounces (763,100 tonnes at 1.94 grams per tonne), Invincible amounted to 
100 ounces (2,000 tonnes at 1.94 grams per tonne) and A5 amounted to 7,900 ounces (174,000 tonnes at 1.41 grams per tonne).  This 
compared with stockpiles of 45,600 ounces (711,000 tonnes at 1.99 grams per tonne) at Neptune, Invincible of 7,800 ounces (109 tonnes 
at 2.21 grams per tonne) and A5 of 7,900 ounces (174,000 tonnes at 1.46 grams per tonne).  Currently, Lefroy mill can only sustain a 
25 per cent oxide material blend, thus constraining the processing of Neptune ore. 

Throughput at the Lefroy mill increased by 1 per cent from 4.20 million tonnes in 2017 to 4.25 million tonnes in 2018.  Yield decreased 
marginally from 2.70 grams per tonne to 2.69 grams per tonne.  Gold production from the Lefroy mill increased by 1 per cent from 
363,900 ounces in 2017 to 366,900 ounces in 2018.  

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 20 per cent from A$207 million (US$159 million) in 2017 to 
A$249 million (US$186 million) in 2018.  The higher cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation was due to increased underground 
mining cost as a result of increased ore tonnes mined at Invincible underground mine (A$18 million/US$14 million) and as a result of 
the loss of economies of scale at the open pits due to the large decrease in mining volumes as Invincible stage 5 moved to completion 
(completed at end of September 2018), as well as lower volumes from Neptune, increased processing maintenance cost (A$4 million/
US$3 million) and a lower gold inventory credit to costs (A$20 million/US$15 million) in 2018 compared with A$38 million 
(US$29 million) in 2017.

Capital expenditure decreased by 17 per cent from A$204 million (US$156 million) in 2017 to A$170 million (US$127 million) in 2018 
mainly due to lower capital development in the open pits following completion of mining activities at Invincible open pit stage 5 
(A$54 million/US$41 million), partially offset by increased capital development at the new Invincible underground mine 
(A$25 million/US$19 million).  

All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost increased by 1 per cent from A$1,198 per ounce (US$916 per ounce) in 2017 to A$1,207 per 
ounce (US$902 per ounce) in 2018 due to higher cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, partially offset by higher gold sold 
and lower capital expenditure. 

Guidance 
The estimate for calendar 2019 is as follows:
-  Gold produced ~ 362,000 ounces
-  Capital expenditure ~ A$156 million (US$117 million)
-  All-in sustaining costs ~ A$1,342 per ounce (US$1,007 per ounce)
-  Total all-in cost ~ A$1,342 per ounce (US$1,007 per ounce) 

The increase in all-in sustaining and total all-in costs is due to a forecast increase of A$59 million (US$44 million) in cost of sales 
before amortisation and depreciation, partially offset by a A$14 million (US$10 million) decrease in capital expenditure. 

The increased costs is as a result of a forecasted increase in mining costs of A$29 million (US$22 million) as underground mining 
activity is planned to increase from 0.9 million tonnes to 1.3 million tonnes.  In addition, a drawdown of gold-in-process of 
A$6 million (US$5 million) is forecast for 2019 as open pit mining activity decreases.  This compared with a A$20 million 
(US$15 million) build-up of gold-in-process in 2018.

The decreased capital expenditure is due to a decrease in pre-strip, partially offset by increased underground capital development.

540,700 tonnes in 2017 to 593,400 tonnes in 2018. Grade mined decreased by 17 per cent from 4.78 grams per tonne to 3.96 grams per 
tonne and gold mined decreased from 83,100 ounces to 75,600 ounces.

Tonnes processed decreased by 5 per cent from 1.24 million tonnes in 2017 to 1.18 million tonnes in 2018 due to a lower throughput rate 
in 2018 as a result of downtime to perform major repairs to the crusher.  The combined yield increased by 4 per cent from 6.08 grams 
per tonne to 6.31 grams per tonne due to the processing of higher grade stockpiles in 2018, mined but not processed in 2017.

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 10 per cent from A$197 million (US$150 million) in 2017 to 
A$216 million (US$162 million) in 2018 mainly due to increased mining cost at Waroonga (A$8 million/US$6 million) as a result of 
increased ground support and paste fill and a gold-in-process charge to costs of A$2 million (US$2 million) in 2018 compared with a 
credit to costs of A$6 million (US$5 million) in 2017.

Capital expenditure increased by 2 per cent from A$96 million (US$74 million) in 2017 to A$98 million (US$73 million) in 2018.  

All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost increased by 8 per cent from A$1,276 per ounce (US$977 per ounce) in 2017 to A$1,374 per 
ounce (US$1,026 per ounce) in 2018 due to higher cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, higher capital expenditure and 
lower gold sold.

Guidance 
The estimate for calendar 2019 is as follows:
-  Gold produced ~ 221,000 ounces
-  Capital expenditure ~ A$98 million (US$74 million)
-  All-in sustaining costs ~ A$1,538 per ounce (US$1,154 per ounce)
-  Total all-in cost ~ A$1,538 per ounce (US$1,154 per ounce) 
Gold sold is forecast to decrease by 8 per cent due to a 13 per cent decrease in grade mined from 6.49 grams per tonne to 5.62 grams 
per tonne, due to reducing grades in the FBH area, partially offset by a 7 per cent increase in ore tonnes mined.  The increased tonnes 
mined contributed a A$12 million (US$9 million) increase in cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, when added to the 
decreased gold sales it results in an additional A$164 per ounce to all-in sustaining and total all-in costs.

Gold production decreased by 3 per cent from 290,300 ounces in 2017 to 280,400 ounces in 2018 due to lower grades mined and processed. 

Ore mined from underground increased by 4 per cent from 1.70 million tonnes to 1.76 million tonnes.  Head grade mined decreased by 
5 per cent from 5.50 grams per tonne in 2017 to 5.25 grams per tonne in 2018.  Gold mined from underground decreased by 2 per cent from 
300,700 ounces to 296,000 ounces.  

Tonnes processed increased by 3 per cent from 1.73 million tonnes to 1.78 million tonnes.  The yield decreased by 6 per cent from 
5.23 grams per tonne to 4.90 grams per tonne due to lower grades mined. 

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 7 per cent from A$210 million (US$160 million) in 2017 to 
A$225 million (US$168 million) in 2018 mainly due to increased mining cost (A$15 million/US$12 million) due to the increased ore tonnes 
mined from the deeper zones and an 18 per cent increase in ore development in 2018.

Capital expenditure decreased by 8 per cent from A$114 million (US$87 million) in 2017 to A$105 million (US$79 million) in 2018 due to 
the completion of the VR8 ventilation shaft in 2017.  The majority of capital expenditure related to development and infrastructure at 
the Wallaby mine, exploration and the development of a paste plant and associated infrastructure.

All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost increased by 6 per cent from A$1,171 per ounce (US$896 per ounce) in 2017 to A$1,239 per 
ounce (US$925 per ounce) in 2018 mainly due to higher cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation and lower gold sold, partially 
offset by lower capital expenditure.

Guidance 
The estimate for calendar 2019 is as follows:
-  Gold produced ~ 260,000 ounces
-  Capital expenditure ~ A$107 million (US$80 million)
-  All-in sustaining costs ~ A$1,370 per ounce (US$1,028 per ounce)
-  Total all-in cost ~ A$1,370 per ounce (US$1,028 per ounce)

The increase in all-in sustaining and total all-in costs is due to a 20,400 ounce decrease in gold sold and a A$10 million 
(US$7 million) increase in mining costs.  The decrease in ounces is due to a seismic event in the December 2018 quarter which impacted 
access to higher grade mining areas in 2019.  The lower production was due to additional barrier pillars now defined in the mine plan 
combined with reduced mining rates in parts of the Z100 area as a consequence of localised geotechnical conditions.  Mining costs 
increased due to greater haulage distances and the addition of paste fill as mining depth increases.

Gruyere
First gold remains scheduled for the June 2019 quarter, in line with the guidance issued in April 2018.  The final forecast capital 
(FFC) cost estimate remains at A$621 million (level of accuracy range + 2 per cent/-2 per cent) as reported by the joint venture 
partners on 30 July 2018.

In accordance with the Joint Venture agreement entered into at the time of the acquisition, Gold Fields will fund up to 10 per cent of 
costs overruns, excluding scope changes and force majeure costs.  This translates to approximately A$51 million.  Consequently, 
Gold Fields share of the FFC is A$337 million with A$246 million having been incurred up to the end of December 2018.  As at end 
December 2018, overall project engineering and construction was 97.2 per cent and 88.7 per cent complete, respectively, with EPC 
construction (process plant and associated infrastructure) 85.1 per cent complete.

We believe that the long-life, low-cost nature of Gruyere will improve the Gold Fields portfolio.

Guidance 
The estimate for calendar 2019 is as follows:
-  Gold produced ~ 118,000 ounces (100 per cent basis)
-  Gold Fields share of production ~ 59,000 ounces
-  Sustaining capital expenditure# ~ A$13 million (US$9 million)
-  Growth capital expenditure# ~ A$99 million (US$74 million) 
-  All-in sustaining costs# ~ A$1,088 per ounce (US$816 per ounce)
-  Total all-in cost# ~ A$3,178 per ounce (US$2,384 per ounce)

Ghana 
The Ghana Chamber of Mines received a letter from the Government of Ghana dated 31 July 2018 indicating that the Government intended 
to exercise its right of pre-emption regarding minerals "raised, won and obtained in Ghana and from any area covered by territorial 
waters, the exclusive economic zone or the continental shelf and products derived from the refining or treatment of these minerals" in 
accordance with section 7 of the Minerals and Mining Act, 2006 (Act 703).  In this regard, the letter stated that the Government 
intended to purchase up to 30 per cent of gold mined in Ghana from all mining companies and requested the Chamber to inform its 
members, including Gold Fields, of the Government?s decision and be prepared to engage with the Ministry to finalise measures to ensure 
implementation by 1 November 2018.  The Chamber on behalf of its Members has engaged and will continue to do so to obtain further 
information on this decision. 

In a meeting on 8 January 2019 with representatives of the Chamber, the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources indicated that 
Government would collaborate with mining companies to determine ways of adding value to Ghana?s mineral resources in a mutually 
beneficial way.  The joint committee set up to achieve this common goal would commence work once the terms of reference had been 
finalised.  The Chamber representatives pointed out that letters like the one issued on pre-emptive rights sent the wrong signals about 
Ghana and that it was better for Government to work collaboratively with the industry to adopt the best and most acceptable way to add 
value. We are yet to hear from the Ministry/Government. 

Mining charter 
On 27 September 2018, the Minister of Mineral Resources, published the Broad-Based Socio-Economic Empowerment Charter (2018 Mining 
Charter).  On 19 December 2018, the Implementation Guidelines were published together with a Gazetted amendment to the 2018 Mining 
Charter.

The Minerals Council recognises that 2018 Mining Charter is an improvement on previous draft versions in 2017 however there are still 
certain matters including renewals that require more engagements with the Minister.  We trust that the 2018 Mining Charter will promote 
a sustainable mining industry that will be supported by investment, growth, transformation and value creation.

Gold Fields continues to support the collaborative and consultative process of engagement with the Minister, the Department of Minerals 
and Resources and other stakeholders through the Minerals Council. 

Outlook for 2019

Attributable equivalent gold production for the Group for 2019 is expected to be between 2.13 million ounces and 2.18 million ounces.  
AISC is expected to be between US$980 per ounce and US$995 per ounce.  AIC is planned to be between US$1,075 per ounce and US$1,095 per 
ounce.  These expectations assume exchange rates of R/US$:13.80 and A$/US$:0.75.

Capital expenditure for the Group is planned at US$633 million. Sustaining capital expenditure for the Group is planned at 
US$490 million and growth capital expenditure is planned at US$143 million. The US$143 million growth capital expenditure comprises 
US$69 million for Damang and A$99 million (US$74 million) as per above for Gruyere.  Expenditure on Salares Norte is expected to be 
US$57 million in 2019.  The capital expenditure above excludes the Group?s share of Asanko?s total capital expenditure of US$25 million 
for 2019. 

The above is subject to safety performance which limits the impact of safety-related stoppages and the forward looking statement on 
page 6.


REVIEWED PRELIMINARY CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Basis of preparation
The condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with the requirements of the JSE Limited Listings 
Requirements for preliminary reports and the requirements of the Companies Act of South Africa.  The Listings Requirements require 
preliminary reports to be prepared in accordance with the framework concepts and the measurement and recognition requirements of 
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and the SAICA Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices 
Committee and Financial Pronouncements as issued by Financial Reporting Standards Council and to also, as a minimum, contain the 
information required by IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting.

These condensed consolidated financial statements were authorised by the Board of Directors for issue on 15 February 2019.

The accounting policies applied in the preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements are in terms of IFRS and are 
consistent with those applied in the previous consolidated annual financial statements except for the adoption of IFRS 9 Financial 
Instruments (IFRS 9) and IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers (IFRS 15).

Auditor?s review
The condensed consolidated financial statements of Gold Fields Limited for the year ended 31 December 2018 have been reviewed by the 
company?s auditor, KPMG Inc. 

The auditor?s report does not necessarily report on all of the information contained in this media release. Shareholders are therefore 
advised that in order to obtain a full understanding of the nature of the auditor?s engagement they should refer to page 43 of the 
media release for a copy of the auditor?s report.

Changes in significant accounting policies
The group adopted IFRS 15 and IFRS 9 with effect from 1 January 2018.

IFRS 15
This IFRS introduces a new revenue recognition model for contracts with customers and establishes a comprehensive framework for 
determining whether, how much and when revenue is recognised.

The Group assessed the impact of adopting IFRS 15 and determined the impact as follows:
-  Revenue will be recognised when the customer takes control of the gold, copper and silver. The timing of recognition of revenue 
   will no longer be when risks and rewards of ownership pass to the customer; and
-  The change in timing of revenue recognition will result in revenue at the South African and Australian operations being recognised 
   on settlement date (date when control passes) and not contract date (previous date when risks and rewards of ownership passed). 
   There is no change to the revenue recognition at any of the other operations given that the date of control is the same date as when 
   risks and rewards of ownership pass. The change in timing of revenue recognition for the South African and Australian operations is 
   that revenue will be recognised approximately two days later than it was previously recognised. 
   The Group has adopted IFRS 15 using the cumulative effect method (without practical expedients), with the effect of initially 
   applying this standard at the date of initial application (i.e. 1 January 2018). Accordingly, the information presented for prior 
   periods has not been restated. The impact on opening retained earnings has been disclosed in the statement of changes in equity 
   (this had no impact on the non-controlling interest).

There was no material impact on the Group?s income statement and statements of financial position and cash flows for the year ended 
31 December 2018. 

IFRS 9
This IFRS sets out requirements for recognising and measuring financial assets, financial liabilities and some contracts to buy or sell 
non-financial items. This standard replaces IAS 39 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement.

This IFRS contains a new classification and measurement approach for financial assets that reflects the business model in which the 
assets are managed and their cash flow characteristics. The three principal classification categories for financial assets are: 
amortised cost, fair value through profit or loss (FVTPL) and fair value through other comprehensive income (FVOCI).

The new classification does not have a significant impact on the Group accounting for financial assets. The Group?s available-for-sale 
financial assets will be designated as FVOCI.

Given the historically low risk of impairment in respect of receivables and the nature of receivables, the change from the "incurred 
loss" model to the "expected credit loss" model did not have a material impact on the measurement of financial assets.

There was no material impact on the Group?s income statement and statements of financial position and cash flows for the year ended 
31 December 2018. 

Credit facilities successfully refinanced
R1,500 million Nedbank revolving credit facility
On 13 April 2018, Gold Fields Operations Limited and GFI Joint Venture Holdings (Proprietary) Limited entered into a R1,500 million 
revolving credit facility with Nedbank Limited which became available on 8 May 2018. The purpose of this facility was to fund 
(i) capital expenditure of the Gold Fields group, and (ii) general corporate and working capital requirements of the Gold Fields group. 
The final maturity date of this facility is five years from the financial close date, namely 8 May 2023.

US$100 million Senior Secured revolving credit facility
On 12 June 2017, Gold Fields Ghana Limited and Abosso Goldfields Limited (as Borrowers) entered into a US$100 million senior secured 
revolving credit facility with the Standard Bank of South Africa Limited (acting through its Isle of Man branch) (as Original Lender 
and Agent) and Stanbic Ghana Limited (as Security Agent) which became available on 17 July 2017. The purpose of this facility was 
(i) to refinance the outstanding balance of US$45 million under the US$70 million senior secured revolving credit facility (which 
matured on 17 July 2017); (ii) to finance working capital requirements; (iii) for general corporate purposes; and (iv) for capital 
expenditure purposes of each borrower. The final maturity date of this facility is three years from the financial close date, namely 
17 July 2020. On 22 March 2018, the Borrowers, the Original Lender and the Security Agent entered into an Amendment and Restatement 
Agreement to release any and all security interests created in favour of the Security Agent (the Security). The effective date of the 
release of the Security was 22 March 2018.

On 23 November 2018, Gold Fields Ghana Limited and Abosso Goldfields Limited and The Standard Bank of South Africa Limited (acting 
through its Isle of Man branch) entered into the Fifth Amendment and Restatement Agreement which further amended the facility 
agreement. The effective date of the Fifth Amendment and Restatement Agreement was 30 November 2018. The final maturity date is the 
date falling three years after the effective date, namely 30 November 2021.

US$1,290 million term loan and revolving credit facilities 
-  US$360 million facility extension (Facility B).  On 29 June 2018, the termination date of 96.18 per cent of the total commitment 
   under the US$360 million revolving credit facility (i.e. US$346.25 million) was extended by one year from 6 June 2020 to 6 June 
   2021.
-  US$380 million facility extension (Facility A). On 8 November 2018, the termination date of the US$380 million term loan was 
   extended by one year from 6 June 2019 to 6 June 2020.

Non-recurring items
Asset impairments and write-offs 
Asset impairments and write-offs recognised by the Group during 2018 include:

South Deep
-  impairment of R6.471 billion (US$482 million) in respect of the South Deep cash-generating unit.  The after tax impairment was 
   R4.819 billion (US$359 million).  The impairment was recognised in June 2018, firstly allocated against goodwill and then against 
   other assets, and given that impairment indicators still existed at 31 December 2018, a further impairment assessment was performed.

There were no further impairments at 31 December 2018 using the following assumptions:
-  Gold price of R525,000 per kilogram for 2019 and R550,000 per kilogram thereafter;
-  Resource price of US$17 per ounce at a Rand/US dollar exchange rate of R14.63;
-  Resource ounces of 24.5 million ounces;
-  Life of mine 75 years; and
-  Nominal discount rate of 13.5 per cent. 

Impairment of investments and assets
The impairment of US$39 million related mainly to the impairment of FSE which was based on the fair value less cost of disposal of the 
investment which was directly derived from the market value of Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company.

Loss on sale of inventory and assets
The loss on sale of inventory and assets related to the sale of mining fleet and heavy machinery equipment and inventory at Tarkwa as 
part of the transition to contractor mining and amounted to US$9 million and US$38 million, respectively. 

Restructuring costs
The restructuring costs of US$114 million comprised restructuring costs at Tarkwa of US$89 million with the transition to contractor 
mining as well as restructuring costs at Damang and South Deep of US$14 million and US$11 million, respectively.

Acquisition of a 45 per cent interest in Asanko
On 29 March 2018, the Group entered into certain definitive agreements (the JV Transaction) with Asanko Gold Inc. (Asanko) pursuant to 
which, among other things:
-  Gold Fields and Asanko will each own a 45 per cent interest in Asanko Gold Ghana Limited (AGGL), the Asanko subsidiary that 
   currently owns the Asanko Gold Mine, with the Government of Ghana continuing to retain a 10 per cent free-carried interest in AGGL 
   (the Joint Arrangement);
-  Gold Fields and Asanko will each own a 50 per cent interest in Adansi Gold Company Ghana Limited (Adansi Ghana), the Asanko 
   subsidiary that currently owns a number of the Company?s exploration licenses; and
-  Gold Fields and Asanko will each acquire a 50 per cent interest in a newly formed entity (Shika Group Finance Limited (JV Finco)).

On 20 June 2018, Gold Fields and Asanko received approval of the JV Transaction from the Ghanaian Minister of Lands and Natural 
Resources and the JV Transaction closed on 31 July 2018 once all conditions precedent were met. 

In consideration for its interests in the Joint Arrangement, Gold Fields:
-  contributed US$165.0 million, representing its initial US$164.9 million redeemable share investment in JV Finco, as well as its 
   initial US$0.1 million equity investments in AGGL, Adansi Ghana and JV Finco, respectively; and
-  will contribute an additional US$20.0 million redeemable share investment to JV Finco based on an agreed Esaase development 
   milestone, but in any event no later than 31 December 2019. 

Recognition and measurement
Gold Fields and Asanko have joint control as each party has 50 per cent of the voting rights.  The Asanko transaction is structured as 
a separate vehicle and the Group has a residual interest in the net assets of Asanko. Accordingly, the Group has classified its 
interest in Asanko as a joint venture.

Fair value measured on a provisional basis
The fair value of identifiable net assets acquired has been performed on a provisional basis, pending completion of review and sign off 
of the life of mine model, including the Reserves and Resources, by the Group Competent Person.  Any changes to the acquisition life of 
mine model and/or Reserves and Resources could result in a material change to the cash flows used to determine the fair value of the 
identifiable net assets acquired. 

If new information is obtained within one year from the date of acquisition about facts and circumstances that existed at the date of 
acquisition and adjustments are required to be made to the provisional fair values of the identifiable net assets, or if any additional 
provisions that existed at the date of acquisition are identified, then the accounting for the acquisition will be revised.

Consideration transferred
The following table summarises the acquisition date fair value of the consideration transferred:

2018                                                       US$?m
Cash for Asanko redeemable preference shares and equity    165.0
Total consideration paid                                   165.0

Gain on acquisition of Asanko
The gain on acquisition was determined as follows:

2018                                                      US$?m
Total fair value of assets acquired                       216.8
Consideration transferred                                (165.0)
Gain on acquisition3                                       51.8

-  The redeemable preference shares have the following conditions:
   -  Redeemable at the option of the issuer; and
   -  Non-interest bearing. 

The redeemable preference shares were recognised as an investment in an equity financial instrument measured at fair value. The key 
assumptions used to determine the fair value of the redeemable preference shares of US$129.9 million at acquisition were as follows:
Par value of the preference shares               US$/m            165.0
Market related interest rate                              7,85 per cent
Expected redemption period                                      5 years

-  The key assumptions used to determine the fair value of the net identifiable assets acquired were as follows:
US$ gold price - 2018 to 2019                   US$/oz            1,200
US$ gold price - 2020 onwards                   US$/oz            1,300
Discount rate                                            10.27 per cent
Life of mine                                                   12 years

-  The excess of the fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired over the consideration is recognised immediately in profit or 
   loss as a gain on acquisition.

Silicosis and tuberculosis class and individual actions
As previously reported, the Gold Working Group (comprising African Rainbow Minerals, Anglo American SA, AngloGold Ashanti, Gold Fields, 
Harmony and Sibanye-Stillwater) (the "GWG Parties") concluded a settlement agreement (the "Settlement Agreement") with the attorneys 
representing claimants in the silicosis and tuberculosis class action litigation on 3 May 2018. The Settlement Agreement provides 
meaningful compensation to all eligible workers suffering from silicosis and/or tuberculosis who worked in the GWG Parties? mines from 
12 March 1965 to the effective date of the Settlement Agreement.

The Settlement Agreement is subject to certain suspensive conditions, including that an unconditional order of court, sanctioning the 
Settlement Agreement to make the Settlement Agreement an order of court, is obtained from the High Court of South Africa (Gauteng Local 
Division, Johannesburg) (the "Court").

The first stage of the Court approval application comprised an ex parte application which was heard on 13 December 2018. Following this 
hearing, the Court issued an order setting out how members of the settling classes and other interested parties should be informed of 
the proposed settlement and how they may make representations to the Court regarding the settlement, should they wish.

The second stage of the approval application makes provision for members of the settling classes and interested parties to make 
submissions to the Court, if they so wish, on the settlement.  The hearing of the second stage of the approval application will take 
place from 29 to 31 May 2019. Should there be no notifications of objections to the settlement, this hearing will take place on 3 April 
2019.

If and when the Court has approved the settlement, there will then be a period in which members of the settling classes may indicate 
whether they wish to opt out of the settlement. The Settlement Agreement provides that any member of the settlement classes who doesn?t 
opt out is automatically eligible to submit a claim.

In terms of the settlement, a settlement trust will be constituted. A website (http://www.SilicosisSettlement.co.za) and a Facebook page 
(http://www.facebook.com/silicosissettlement) were established where miners, ex-miners or their dependants can register an interest in making 
a claim from the settlement trust once it is established, and learn more about the settlement.

Provision raised
Gold Fields has provided for the estimated cost of the above settlement based on actuarial assessments and the provisions of the 
Settlement Agreement. At 31 December 2018, the provision for Gold Fields? share of the settlement of the class action claims and 
related costs amounts to US$25 million (R368 million). The nominal value of this provision is US$35 million (R507 million).

This provision compares to the initial amount raised in June 2017 of US$30 million (R390 million). The decrease is due to a change in 
the timing of expected cash flows.

The ultimate outcome of this matter remains uncertain, with a possible failure to fulfil all the suspensive conditions, including the 
Settlement Agreement being approved by the Court.  The provision is consequently subject to adjustment in the future.

South Deep tax dispute
During the September 2014 quarter, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) issued a Finalisation of Audit Letter stating that SARS has 
disallowed GFI Joint Venture Holdings (Pty) Ltd?s (GFIJVH) additional capital allowance claim.

The Group objected to SARS? decision and vigorously defended its position. After no resolution was achieved during a Tax Court sitting 
in 2017, GFIJVH appealed to the High Court. 

The Group announced that on 30 May 2018 GFIJVH and SARS entered into a confidential settlement agreement (as provided for in the Tax 
Administration Act) in full and final settlement of this matter. As a result of the settlement GFIJVH has recognised an additional 
R2,708 million (US$185 million) of capital allowances with a tax effect on this amount of R785 million (US$54 million).

HEDGING/DERIVATIVES (REVIEWED)
The Group?s policy is to remain unhedged to the gold price. However, hedges are sometimes undertaken as follows:
-  to protect cash flows at times of significant expenditure;
-  for specific debt servicing requirements; and 
-  to safeguard the viability of higher cost operations.
Gold Fields may from time to time establish currency financial instruments to protect underlying cash flows.

Regrettably, a tragic accident occurred on 12 October 2018 fatally injuring Mr. Ananias Mosololi.  The mine was issued with a Section 
54 instruction, halting mobile machinery and secondly to conduct an investigation.  A partial upliftment was issued on 18 October 2018 
with a full upliftment on 31 October 2018.  18 days of production was either lost or significantly impacted. 

South Deep embarked on a restructuring process as reported in the September quarter.  The prescribed consultation process was concluded 
on 28 October 2018 culminating in the retrenchment of 1,092 permanent employee?s and 420 contractors.  The majority union, the NUM, 
obtained a certificate of non-resolution from the CCMA and issued a notice of intended industrial action on 31 October 2018.  The 
protected industrial action commenced on 2 November 2018 and lasted 6 weeks.  Employees participating in the industrial action blocked 
all roads to the mine, limiting access and the ability to continue with any mining operations. Production was therefore suspended and 
essential services continued intermittently when access was possible.  Negotiations with all levels of the union (branch, regional and 
national) concluded on 18 December 2018 with the signing of a new agreement that ended the industrial action.  The mine resumed 
operations gradually from 15 December 2018.  The process had a profound impact on production with the operations suspended for 41 days 
with a preceding "go slow" and acts of sabotage.  It took an additional 8 days to start-up the underground sections post 15 December 
2018. 

Gold production subsequently decreased by 78 per cent from 1,539 kilograms (49,489 ounces) in the September quarter to 343 kilograms 
(11,019 ounces) in the December quarter.

Total underground tonnes mined decreased by 75 per cent from 319,000 tonnes in the September quarter to 79,000 tonnes in the December 
quarter.  Ore tonnes mined decreased by 78 per cent from 277,000 tonnes to 62,000 tonnes, while underground waste mined decreased by 
60 per cent from 42,000 tonnes to 17,000 tonnes.  Access development in the reef areas decreased by 76 per cent from 48,800 tonnes to 
11,800 tonnes.  It was constrained by continued ground support and rehabilitation requirements.  Underground reef grade mined decreased 
by 24 per cent from 6.14 grams per tonne to 4.67 grams per tonne due to a decrease in stoping grade from 7.11 grams per tonne in the 
September quarter to 4.78 grams per tonne in the December quarter as a result of loading the remainder of the broken stoping volume 
from the suspended lower grade 87 1W area.  Total gold mined from underground decreased by 84 per cent from 1,697 kilograms 
(54,600 ounces) in the September quarter to 280 kilograms (9,000 ounces) in the December quarter, in line with volumes and grade.

Total tonnes milled decreased by 59 per cent from 387,000 tonnes in the September quarter to 159,000 tonnes in the December quarter.  
Reef yield decreased 6 per cent from 5.63 grams per tonne to 5.30 grams per tonne in line with the lower reef grade.  

Surface tailings material treated decreased by 4 per cent from 73,000 tonnes to 70,000 tonnes.

Gold recovered from underground amounted to 333 kilograms (10,700 ounces) and included 53 kilograms (1,700 ounces) released from 
gold-in-process. In addition, 10 kilograms (320 ounces) were recovered from the treatment of surface material.

Destress mining decreased by 70 per cent from 4,356 square metres in the September quarter to 1,323 square metres in the December 
quarter partly due to a new destress support design implemented in October 2018.  In addition to the normal tendon and mesh support the 
design includes for shotcrete to be applied on the side walls over the mesh. This design will improve support effectiveness, excavation 
durability, reduce support rehabilitation cycles and reduce rock burst risk.  Implementing the new design and catching up with the 
backlog of ground support in previously mined excavations, impacted destress progress negatively.  However, the benefits of the new 
support protocols are expected to be significant.

Longhole stoping decreased by 84 per cent from 188,300 tonnes to 29,700 tonnes.  Development decreased by 62 per cent from 1,190 metres 
in the September quarter to 452 metres in the December quarter. Development in the current mine areas decreased by 58 per cent from 
518 metres in the September quarter to 217 metres in the December quarter.  Development North of Wrench decreased by 54 per cent from 
512 metres in the September quarter to 235 metres in the December quarter. New mine capital development on 100 level was suspended from 
the end of July 2018 as this activity was ahead of schedule and crews were re-allocated. New mine development amounted to 160 meters in 
the September quarter and to nil meters in the December quarter.

The current mine contributed 69 per cent of the total ore tonnes in the December quarter compared with 53 per cent in the September 
quarter with the balance from North of Wrench.  The decrease in the North of Wrench contribution was mainly due to lower destress 
performance as discussed above.  The tonnage contribution from longhole stoping decreased by 14 per cent from 59 per cent in the 
September quarter to 45 per cent in the December quarter due to lower stope availability. 

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation decreased by 19 per cent from R941 million (US$66 million) to R763 million 
(US$52 million).  Cost of sales before gold inventory change and amortisation and depreciation decreased from R975 million 
(US$69 million) in the September quarter to R638 million (US$43 million) in the December quarter mainly due to lower salaries and 
wages, contractors and consumable costs in the December quarter due to the industrial action.  This was partially offset by a 
gold-in-process charge to cost of R125 million (US$9 million) in the December quarter compared with a credit to cost of R34 million 
(US$3 million) due to the drawdown of stockpiles in the December quarter. 

Capital expenditure decreased by 17 per cent from R214 million (US$15 million) in the September quarter to R177 million (US$12 million) 
in the December quarter. 

Sustaining capital expenditure increased by 5 per cent from R146 million (US$10 million) in the September quarter to R153 million 
(US$11 million) in the December quarter due to an increase in major component and rebuild costs for the mine?s fleet.  Non-sustaining 
capital expenditure decreased by 65 per cent from R69 million (US$5 million) to R24 million (US$1 million) due to the suspension of the 
new mine development.

All-in sustaining costs increased by 142 per cent from R758,304 per kilogram (US$1,663 per ounce) in the September quarter to 
R1,834,112 per kilogram (US$3,906 per ounce) in the December quarter mainly due to lower gold sold and higher sustaining capital 
expenditure, partially offset by lower cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation.

Total all-in cost increased by 134 per cent from R804,998 per kilogram (US$1,764 per ounce) in the September quarter to R1,881,395 per 
kilogram (US$3,986 per ounce) in the December quarter due to the same reasons as for all-in sustaining costs, partially offset by lower 
non-sustaining capital expenditure.

Gold production increased by 6 per cent from 126,500 ounces in the September quarter to 134,000 ounces in the December quarter mainly 
due to higher yield.

Total tonnes mined, including capital waste stripping, increased by 2 per cent from 22.0 million tonnes in the September quarter to 
22.5 million tonnes in the December quarter.  Ore tonnes mined increased by 14 per cent from 3.5 million tonnes to 4.0 million tonnes 
due to increased mining volumes at Pepe and Akontansi pits in line with the mining plan.

Operational waste tonnes mined increased by 12 per cent from 6.7 million tonnes to 7.5 million tonnes due to accelerated mining at 
Akontansi and Pepe pits to expose ore.  Capital waste tonnes mined decreased by 7 per cent from 11.8 million tonnes to 11.0 million 
tonnes.  Mined grade increased by 2 per cent from 1.21 grams per tonne to 1.23 grams per tonne.  Gold mined increased by 15 per cent 
from 136,400 ounces to 157,200 ounces as a result of increased ore tonnes mined.  The strip ratio decreased from 5.3 to 4.7. 

The CIL plant throughput was similar at 3.5 million tonnes.  Yield increased by 6 per cent from 1.14 grams per tonne to 1.21 grams per 
tonne mainly due to higher grade ore mined and processed.

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 9 per cent from US$76 million to US$83 million mainly due to increased 
operational tonnes mined, partially offset by a gold-in-process credit to costs of US$4 million in the December quarter compared with a 
charge to costs of US$3 million in the September quarter.

Capital expenditure decreased by 11 per cent from US$38 million to US$34 million due to lower capital stripping.

All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost decreased by 5 per cent from US$972 per ounce in the September quarter to US$924 per 
ounce in the December quarter due to higher gold sold and lower capital expenditure, partially offset by increased cost of sales before 
amortisation and depreciation.

Gold production decreased by 22 per cent from 51,300 ounces in the September quarter to 40,000 ounces in the December quarter mainly 
due to lower head grade and tonnes processed as a consequence of a planned 16 day plant shutdown to replace the SAG mill shell.

Total tonnes mined, including capital stripping, decreased by 7 per cent from 11.4 million tonnes in the September quarter to 
10.6 million tonnes in the December quarter mainly due to space constraints at the Amoanda pit given its level of maturity, which was 
factored in to the operational plan. 

Ore tonnes mined increased by 8 per cent from 1.32 million tonnes in the September quarter to 1.43 million tonnes in the December 
quarter mainly from Amoanda pit area where the ore zones are exposed.  Total waste tonnes mined decreased by 9 per cent from 
10.1 million tonnes to 9.2 million tonnes in line with the operational plan.  Capital waste tonnes included in total waste tonnes 
decreased by 16 per cent from 8.1 million tonnes to 6.8 million tonnes due to lower stripping volumes from the Amoanda and Saddle pits 
which are at the later stages of the current cutback.  Operational waste tonnes mined increased by 20 per cent from 2.0 million tonnes 
to 2.4 million tonnes also in line with the operational plan.  In the December quarter total tonnes mined at Amoanda pit were 
2.4 million tonnes and at DPCB were 8.2 million tonnes.

Head grade mined decreased by 13 per cent from 1.72 grams per tonne to 1.50 grams per tonne due to lower grade mined at the south of 
Amoanda pit.  Gold mined decreased by 5 per cent from 72,700 ounces to 68,800 ounces.  The strip ratio decreased from 7.7 to 6.4 due 
to exposed ore surfaces mined at the Amoanda pit.

Tonnes processed decreased by 10 per cent from 1.08 million tonnes in the September quarter to 0.97 million tonnes in the December 
quarter due to lower plant overall equipment availability as a result of a planned shutdown to replace the SAG mill shell.  Yield 
decreased by 17 per cent from 1.55 grams per tonne to 1.28 grams per tonne due to lower feed grade mined as a consequence of an 
increase in stockpiled tonnes processed.  The SAG mill shell replacement was completed ahead of schedule during December, by which time 
the target of 2018 has been achieved.  The strategic decision was taken to feed additional tonnes from low grade stockpile in order not 
to jeopardise the 2019 plan, which required a high-grade stockpile as per the 2019 plan.  In the December quarter, tonnes milled were 
sourced as follows: 0.84 million tonnes at 1.44 grams per tonne from the pits and 0.13 million tonnes at 1.03 grams per tonne from 
stockpiles.  This compared with 1.02 million tonnes at 1.75 grams per tonne from the pits and 0.06 million tonnes at 1.07 grams per 
tonne from stockpiles in the September quarter. 

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 14 per cent from US$29 million to US$33 million mainly due to higher 
operating tonnes mined.

Capital expenditure decreased by 11 per cent from US$35 million in the September quarter to US$31 million in the December quarter as a 
result of lower capital waste tonnes mined.

Sustaining capital expenditure decreased by 25 per cent from US$4 million to US$3 million.  Non-sustaining capital expenditure 
decreased by 10 per cent from US$31 million to US$28 million mainly due to lower capital waste mined (6.8 million tonnes in the 
December quarter compared with 8.1 million tonnes mined in the September quarter).

All-in sustaining costs increased by 37 per cent from US$682 per ounce in the September quarter to US$937 per ounce in the December 
quarter mainly due to lower gold sold and higher cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, partially offset by lower 
sustaining capital expenditure. 

All-in costs increased by 24 per cent from US$1,288 per ounce in the September quarter to US$1,601 per ounce in the December quarter 
due to the same reasons above, partially offset by lower non-sustaining capital expenditure. 

At the end of the December 2018 quarter, and 24 months into the Damang Reinvestment Project (DRP), total material mined amounted to 
86 million tonnes, 23 per cent ahead of the project schedule.  Gold produced during the same period was 324,300 ounces, 38 per cent 
above the DRP ounces of 235,574.  The new SAG mill shell has been installed successfully.  The project capital spent to date is 
US$271 million versus the original DRP budget of US$228 million.

Gold production increased by 19 per cent from 40,700 ounces in the September quarter to 48,400 ounces in the December quarter due to 
higher grades mined and processed.  Copper production increased by 5 per cent from 8,437 tonnes to 8,849 tonnes due to higher grade 
mined and processed.  Equivalent gold production increased by 12 per cent from 83,200 ounces to 93,200 ounces mainly due to higher 
grade processed in line with the mining sequence. 

Gold head grade increased by 18 per cent from 1.14 grams per tonne to 1.35 grams per tonne and gold recoveries increased from 66.1 per 
cent to 68.3 per cent, in line with the mining sequence.  Copper head grade increased by 3 per cent from 0.58 per cent to 0.60 per cent 
and copper recoveries increased from 86.2 per cent to 90.3 per cent.  Gold yield increased by 27 per cent from 0.77 grams per tonne to 
0.98 grams per tonne due to higher head grade and recovery.  Copper yield increased by 14 per cent from 0.51 per cent to 0.58 per cent 
due to higher head grade and recovery.

In the December quarter, concentrate with a payable content of 45,494 ounces of gold was sold at an average price of US$1,227 per ounce 
and 8,369 tonnes of copper was sold at an average price of US$5,426 per tonne, net of treatment and refining charges.  This compared 
with 38,980 ounces of gold that was sold at an average price of US$1,206 per ounce and 8,191 tonnes of copper that was sold at an 
average price of US$5,335 per tonne, net of treatment and refining charges, in the September quarter. 

Total tonnes mined decreased by 3 per cent from 5.44 million tonnes in the September quarter to 5.25 million tonnes in the December 
quarter mainly due to lower waste mined in line with the mining sequence.  Ore mined increased by 5 per cent from 1.74 million tonnes 
to 1.82 million tonnes.  Operational waste tonnes mined decreased by 7 per cent from 3.70 million tonnes to 3.43 million tonnes in line 
with the mining plan.  The strip ratio decreased from 2.12 to 1.89.

Ore processed decreased by 6 per cent from 1.71 million tonnes to 1.60 million tonnes due to lower plant utilisation as a result of the 
planned plant shutdown in the December quarter. 

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, decreased by 3 per cent from US$39 million to US$38 million mainly due to a 
US$5 million gold-in-process credit to cost in the December quarter compared with US$1 million in the September quarter as a result of 
an increase in stockpiles.

Capital expenditure increased by 18 per cent from US$11 million to US$13 million due to an increase in construction activities at the 
tailings dam and reallocation of infrastructure related to expansion to 2030.

All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost per gold ounce decreased by 43 per cent from US$443 per ounce in the September quarter to 
US$252 per ounce in the December quarter mainly due to higher by-product credits and increased gold sold, partially offset by increased 
capital expenditure.  All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost per equivalent ounce decreased by 6 per cent from US$691 per 
equivalent ounce to US$649 per equivalent ounce due to the same reasons as above, as well as higher gold equivalent ounces sold.

Gold production, decreased by 1 per cent from 89,200 ounces in the September quarter to 87,900 ounces in the December quarter. 
Total ore tonnes mined decreased by 25 per cent from 0.8 tonnes in the September quarter to 0.6 million tonnes in the December quarter.

Total underground ore tonnes mined increased by 17 per cent from 275,300 tonnes in the September quarter to 323,200 tonnes in the 
December quarter.

At the Hamlet underground operation, ore tonnes mined decreased by 11 per cent from 83,300 tonnes in the September quarter to 
73,800 tonnes in the December quarter.  Head grade increased by 10 per cent from 3.41 grams per tonne to 3.76 grams per tonne with 
higher grade stopes mined during the December quarter as per the mining schedule.  Gold mined from Hamlet underground decreased by 
2 per cent from 9,100 ounces to 8,900 ounces.

Operations at the Invincible underground mine continued to grow.  Ore tonnes mined increased by 30 per cent from 192,000 tonnes in the 
September quarter to 249,400 tonnes in the December quarter.  Head grade mined decreased by 10 per cent from 4.16 grams per tonne to 
3.76 grams per tonne due to development carried out in December quarter in lower grade areas of the mine, resulting in a decrease in 
grades from development ore.  Gold mined from Invincible underground increased by 17 per cent from 25,700 ounces to 30,100 ounces.

Total tonnes mined at the open pits, decreased by 30 per cent from 4.7 million tonnes in the September quarter to 3.3 million tonnes in 
the December quarter.  

At the open pit operations, ore tonnes mined decreased by 50 per cent from 0.6 million tonnes in the September quarter to 0.3 million 
tonnes in the December quarter with Neptune open pit the only source of ore, following the completion of mining activities at the 
Invincible open pit stage 5 in the September quarter.  

Grade mined from open pits, decreased by 40 per cent from 2.35 grams per tonne to 1.40 grams per tonne reflecting the lower grade ore 
mined from Neptune and no high grade ore delivered from Invincible following the completion of stage 5.  Gold mined from the open pits 
decreased by 69 per cent from 41,600 ounces to 13,100 ounces.  In the December quarter, tonnes mined were sourced as follows: 
0.3 million tonnes at 1.40 grams per tonne from Neptune and nil from Invincible.  This compared with 0.3 million tonnes at 3.28 grams 
per tonne from Invincible and 0.3 million tonnes at 1.15 grams per tonne from Neptune in the September quarter.

Operational waste tonnes mined decreased by 55 per cent from 1.1 million tonnes in the September quarter to 0.5 million tonnes in the 
December quarter and capital waste tonnes mined decreased by 17 per cent from 3.0 million tonnes to 2.5 million tonnes.  The decrease 
in waste tonnes mined was due to the completion of Invincible stage 5 with the mining fleet utilised at Neptune open pit and also 
performing rehabilitation works at historic waste rock dumps.  Total material movements at the open pits decreased by 30 per cent from 
4.7 million tonnes to 3.3 million tonnes.  The strip ratio increased from 7.4 to 10.6 driven by pre strip activity at Neptune.

Ounces mined at the total St Ives complex decreased by 32 per cent from 76,500 ounces in the September quarter to 52,200 ounces in the 
December quarter due to a 50 per cent reduction in ore tonnes mined at the open pits with the completion of mining activities at 
Invincible open pit stage 5.  At the end of the December quarter, stockpiled Neptune high-grade oxide material amounted to 
47,700 ounces (763,100 tonnes at 1.94 grams per tonne), Invincible amounted to 100 ounces (2,000 tonnes at 1.94 grams per tonne) and 
A5 amounted to 7,900 ounces (174,000 tonnes at 1.41 grams per tonne).  This compared with Neptune high-grade oxide material which 
amounted to 65,300 ounces (997,700 tonnes at 1.57 grams per tonne), Invincible amounted to 32,200 ounces (227,200 tonnes at 2.55 grams 
per tonne) and A5 amounted to 7,900 ounces (174,000 tonnes at 1.46 grams per tonne), at the end of the September quarter.  Currently, 
Lefroy mill can only sustain a 25 per cent oxide material blend.  The excess Neptune oxide material is stockpiled and fed to the mill 
so as to maintain the optimum blend. 

Throughput at the Lefroy mill was similar at 1.08 million tonnes.  Yield decreased by 2 per cent from 2.58 grams per tonne to 
2.53 grams per tonne due to lower grades mined.

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 28 per cent from A$65 million (US$48 million) to A$83 million 
(US$60 million).  The increase was due to a gold inventory charge to costs of A$16 million (US$12 million) in the December quarter 
compared with A$nil (US$nil) in the September quarter. 

Capital expenditure decreased by 6 per cent from A$50 million (US$36 million) to A$47 million (US$34 million) due to lower capital 
development at Hamlet underground. Capital expenditure at Hamlet of A$nil (US$nil) in the December quarter compared with A$3 million 
(US$2 million) in the September quarter.

All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost increased by 13 per cent from A$1,355 per ounce (US$993 per ounce) in the September 
quarter to A$1,533 per ounce (US$1,109 per ounce) in the December quarter due to higher cost of sales before amortisation and 
depreciation and lower gold sold, partially offset by lower capital expenditure.

Gold production increased by 2 per cent from 61,300 ounces in the September quarter to 62,400 ounces in the December quarter mainly due 
to higher grades mined and processed.

Ore mined from underground decreased by 1 per cent from 301,800 tonnes in the September quarter to 297,400 tonnes in the December 
quarter.  Head grade mined decreased by 7 per cent from 6.97 grams per tonnes to 6.49 grams per tonne mainly due to a decrease in ore 
mined from Waroonga?s high grade Bengal area in the December quarter.  Gold mined decreased by 8 per cent from 67,700 ounces to 
62,000 ounces due to lower grades mined.  In the December quarter tonnes mined were sourced as follows: 153,800 tonnes at 8.2 grams per 
tonne from Waroonga and 143,600 tonnes at 4.6 grams per tonne from New Holland.  This compared with 153,200 tonnes at 10.2 grams per 
tonne from Waroonga and 148,600 tonnes at 3.7 grams per tonne from New Holland in the September quarter.  

Tonnes processed decreased by 10 per cent from 310,400 tonnes in the September quarter to 279,800 tonnes in the December quarter due to 
planned mill maintenance and unplanned jaw crusher maintenance in the December quarter.  The combined yield increased by 13 per cent 
from 6.15 grams per tonne to 6.93 grams per tonne due to the processing of high grade stockpiled material sourced from Waroonga?s 
Bengal area in the September quarter, and the processing of a historic New Holland stockpile which returned a positive grade 
reconciliation.

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 6 per cent from A$52 million (US$38 million) in the September quarter 
to A$55 million (US$39 million) in the December quarter mainly due to an increase in mining costs at Waroonga (A$3 million/
US$2 million) as a result of increased ore development in the December quarter and mill maintenance cost (A$1 million/US$1 million) 
following the mill and crusher maintenance shutdown in the December quarter.

Capital expenditure increased by 13 per cent from A$24 million (US$18 million) to A$27 million (US$20 million) mainly due to increased 
expenditure on a new accommodation village in the December quarter.

All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost increased by 9 per cent from A$1,300 per ounce (US$945 per ounce) in the September 
quarter to A$1,413 per ounce (US$1,013 per ounce) in the December quarter due to higher cost of sales before amortisation and 
depreciation and higher capital expenditure as well as lower gold sold.

Gold production decreased by 2 per cent from 72,100 ounces in the September quarter to 71,000 ounces in the December quarter mainly due 
to lower tonnes processed. 

Ore mined from underground increased marginally from 460,800 tonnes to 461,900 tonnes. Head grade mined increased by 4 per cent from 
4.94 grams per tonne in the September quarter to 5.15 grams per tonne in the December quarter in line with the geotechnical sequencing.  
As a result, overall ounces mined increased by 5 per cent from 73,200 ounces in the September quarter to 76,500 ounces in the December 
quarter. 

Tonnes processed decreased by 3 per cent from 478,700 tonnes in the September quarter to 464,000 tonnes in the December quarter due to 
timing of milling campaigns quarter on quarter.  The yield increased by 2 per cent from 4.68 grams per tonne to 4.77 grams per tonne 
due to higher head grade mined.

Cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation, increased by 2 per cent from A$60 million (US$44 million) in the September quarter 
to A$61 million (US$44 million) in the December quarter mainly due to a A$1 million (US$1 million) increase in mining costs as a result 
of increased ore mined.

Capital expenditure decreased by 27 per cent from A$30 million (US$22 million) to A$22 million (US$15 million).  The lower expenditure 
was due to lower mine capital development expenditure of A$3 million (US$2 million) with focus on ore development, lower exploration 
cost (A$3 million/US$2 million) and lower infrastructure expenditure following final payments for the new paste plant in the September 
quarter (A$3 million/US$2 million).

All-in sustaining costs and total all-in cost decreased by 8 per cent from A$1,311 per ounce (US$957 per ounce) to A$1,204 per ounce 
(US$862 per ounce) due to lower capital expenditure, partially offset by increased cost of sales before amortisation and depreciation 
and lower gold sold.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR?S REVIEW REPORT ON CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
To the shareholders of Gold Fields Limited
 
We have reviewed the condensed consolidated financial statements of Gold Fields Limited, contained in the accompanying preliminary 
report, which comprise the condensed consolidated statement of financial position as at 31 December 2018 and the condensed consolidated 
income statement and the condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash flows for the year then 
ended, and selected explanatory notes, and the segmental financial results as set out on pages 19 - 29.

Directors? Responsibility for the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
The directors are responsible for the preparation and presentation of these condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance 
with the requirements of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements for preliminary reports, as set out in the "Basis for preparation" note 
to the financial statements, and the requirements of the Companies Act of South Africa, and for such internal control as the directors 
determine is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud 
or error.

Auditor?s Responsibility
Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on these financial statements. We conducted our review in accordance with International 
Standard on Review Engagements (ISRE) 2410, which applies to a review of historical information performed by the independent auditor of 
the entity.  ISRE 2410 requires us to conclude whether anything has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the financial 
statements are not prepared in all material respects in accordance with the applicable financial reporting framework. This standard 
also requires us to comply with relevant ethical requirements.

A review of financial statements in accordance with ISRE 2410 is a limited assurance engagement. We perform procedures, primarily 
consisting of making inquiries of management and others within the entity, as appropriate, and applying analytical procedures, and 
evaluate the evidence obtained.

The procedures performed in a review are substantially less than those performed in an audit conducted in accordance with International 
Standards on Auditing. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion on these financial statements.

Conclusion
Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the condensed consolidated financial statements 
of Gold Fields Limited for the year ended 31 December 2018 are not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with the 
requirements of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements for preliminary reports, as set out in the "Basis for preparation" note to the 
financial statements, and the requirements of the Companies Act of South Africa.
