Harmony’s production guidance for March 2013 quarter

Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (“Harmony” or the “Company”) announces that gold production for the quarter ended March 2013 will be approximately 15% lower than the previous quarter.

The temporary closure of Kusasalethu due to safety and security reasons, the ventilation challenge at Phakisa and a slow start-up at the other operations post the festive season, resulted in lower quarter on quarter gold production.

More than half of the employees at Kusasalethu have returned to the mine to date and Kusasalethu is expected to return to normal production levels after June 2013. Kusasalethu’s and Phakisa’s performance may further impact Harmony’s June 2013 production quarter.

Harmony’s results for the quarter ended 31 March 2013 will only be released via webcast on Friday, 3 May 2013. Please refer to our website,, for dial-in and webcast details.
