Gold Fields response to misleading Business Day article

Friday, 22 August 2014

Johannesburg, 22 August 2014: Gold Fields Limited (Gold Fields) (JSE, NYSE, NASDAQ Dubai: GFI) has taken note of the misleading and factually inaccurate Business Day article in this morning’s edition headlined “South Deep woes grow with R12bn Kebble suit”.

This claim relates to alleged activities during the period from 2002 – 2005 and was instituted by Randgold and Exploration Company on 21 August 2008. It has been reported by Gold Fields in its Annual Reports, Integrated Reviews and Quarterly Financial Results statements since then.

This claim is historic and relates to a period of time prior to Gold Fields purchasing the mine. The length of time taken by Randgold and Exploration Company to prosecute this claim supports both Gold Fields’ and their attorneys Werksmans considered view that the claim is completely without merit.
