HARMONY PRESS RELEASE Harmony streamlines its listings Johannesburg. Monday, 12 December 2011. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited ("Harmony" and/or "the Company") has requested the United Kingdom ("UK") Financial Services Authority to cancel the listing of the Company's ordinary shares of R0.50 each ("Ordinary Shares") on the UK Official List and to cancel the admission of the Ordinary Shares to trading on the London Stock Exchange's market for listed securities. It is expected that the cancellation of the UK listing and of the admission of the Ordinary Shares to trading on the London Stock Exchange ("LSE") will take effect at 8.00 a.m. (UK time) on 13 January 2012, which provides for the legislated notice period. The Ordinary Shares have been listed on the UK Official List since December 1950. Currently, shareholders holding approximately only 0.19% of the total issued capital of the Company appear on the Company's UK register of members. Only a small amount of trading in the Ordinary Shares has been conducted on the LSE and the Company therefore considered that there is no longer any benefit in maintaining the LSE listing. Following cancellation of the listing and the admission to trading in London, the UK register maintained by Capita Registrars will continue. However, subject to putting the appropriate arrangements in place, shareholders will only be able to trade their shares on the JSE Limited ("JSE") and in the form of American Depository Receipts ("ADR's) on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE"). Shareholders on the UK register that wish to trade their shares on the JSE will be required to dematerialise their shareholding. For further information to trade on the JSE, please contact the Company's South African Transfer Secretaries, Link Market Services, at the address or telephone number below: South African Transfer Secretaries Link Market Services South Africa (Pty) Ltd P O Box 4844; Johannesburg; 2000; South Africa Email: BillB@linkmarketservices.co.za Tel: +27 861 546 572 Shareholders on the UK register that wish to trade their shares on the NYSE will be required to convert their shareholding to ADR's.
