Appointment of Chief Executive Officer

Johannesburg. Wednesday 2 January 2008. Patrice Motsepe, Chairman of the Board, is pleased to announce the appointment of Graham Briggs as Chief Executive Officer of Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited with effect from 1 January 2008.

Harmony appointed a selection panel at the end of October, 2007, made up of four non-executive Board members, to oversee the selection process for the position of Chief Executive Officer. The Panel engaged the services of a professional executive search company to assist in identifying candidates who would qualify for the position. A comprehensive brief was used in identifying the candidates in South Africa as well as some candidates abroad. Discussions with 36 potential candidates were held.

The final shortlist consisted of four candidates and they were invited for formal interviews.

Patrice Motsepe says, “Graham proved to be the outstanding candidate and we are pleased to announce that the board has unanimously appointed him as Chief Executive Officer as from 1 January 2008. He has been overseeing the introduction of the Harmony “back to basics” management style and has done a great job. Harmony is on its way to being the globally competitive and profitable company that we know it can be.”
