Group Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserve Overview

All numbers are net of 12 months mining depletion, with the previous June 2008 statementís numbers shown in brackets for ease of comparison.

  • As at the end of June 2009, Gold Fields has total attributable Mineral Resources, including: (i) platinum and copper as gold equivalents (ii) Uncle Harry’s Prospecting Area contiguous to the South Deep Gold Mine and (iii) West Wits TSF’s (excluding uranium), of 271.2 (250.6) Moz and total attributable gold and copper as gold equivalent Mineral Reserves of 81.1 (82.8) Moz.
  • Total attributable gold Mineral Resources (excluding platinum and copper as gold equivalents) are 255.4 Moz (234.5) Moz and Mineral Reserves are 78.9 (80.5) Moz, net of 4.1 and 3.8 Moz depletion from the Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserve respectively. Total attributable TSF’s and underground uranium Mineral Resource amounts to 77.1 Mlb (excludes Beatrix).
  • Following a pre-feasibility study, the TSF’s have a declared attributable uranium Mineral Resource of 51.4 (11.4) Mlb and a gold Mineral Resource of 4.3 (1.2) Moz. The underground attributable uranium Mineral Resource for the West Wits Operations has been estimated at 25.7 Mlb.
  • North American Palladium (NAP) did not take up their option to acquire 60% of the Arctic Platinum Project (APP) and consequently the Mineral Resource Statement remains the same as historically reported 12.6 Moz (2PGE+Au).
  • 30 June 2009 figures are net of production depletion and Corporate activity.
