AngloGold Ashanti to make a strategic investment in G2 Goldfields Inc.

AngloGold Ashanti plc ("AGA" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it intends, subject
to execution of definitive documentation and satisfaction of customary conditions, to subscribe (the
"Subscription") for 24,500,000 common shares (the "Shares") in G2 Goldfields Inc. ("G2") at
C$0.90 per share for total consideration of C$22,050,000.

Following completion of the Subscription, AGA will own approximately 11.7% of G2's issued and
outstanding Shares.

G2 is actively exploring in Guyana, a country which hosts the Guiana Shield, one of the world's most
prospective gold provinces. The Guiana Shield is host to a number of significant deposits including
the Aurora (6Moz) and Omai (5Moz) mines and the Toraparu (7.0Moz) deposit in Guyana; the
Rosebel (13.7Moz) and Merian (6Moz) mines in Suriname; and the Montagne d'Or (3.9Moz) and
Camp Caiman (2.9Moz) deposits in French Guiana.

The G2 team, led by Patrick Sheridan, Executive Chairman and Dan Noone, CEO is comprised of
professionals who have been directly responsible for the discovery of millions of ounces of gold in
Guyana as well as the financing and development of Aurora, Guyana's largest gold mine.

G2's principal OKO project comprises the OKO Main Zone and Ghanie deposits. G2 announced in
April 2022, an Indicated Mineral Resource estimate for the OKO Main Zone containing
220,000 oz Au (793,000 tonnes grading 8.63 g/t Au) and an Inferred Mineral Resource estimate of
974,000 oz Au (3,274,000 tonnes, grading 9.25 g/t Au). G2 intends to publish a Mineral Resource
update in the first half of 2024.

G2 has other exploration targets within a 20km radius of OKO Main and Ghanie, which are located
directly adjacent to Reunion Gold Corporation's OKO West discovery and where an Indicated and
Inferred Mineral Resource of 4.24Moz, grading 1.91 g/t, was published in June 2023.

AGA believes that G2's exploration properties have significant growth potential.

As part of the Subscription, AGA will be granted pre-emptive and top-up rights for future security
issuances by G2.

Commenting on the Subscription, Alberto Calderon, CEO of AngloGold Ashanti said "This strategic
investment in G2 will provide us with a strong position in one of the world's key gold provinces with
significant potential for new discoveries. We look forward to G2's continued exploration success as
the Guiana Shield continues to develop."

The Subscription is expected to close in January 2024. subject to execution of definitive
documentation and satisfaction of customary conditions.
