NEWS RELEASE

AngloGold Ashanti Update on Safety Incident and Search Effort for Miner at Obuasi
(JOHANNESBURG) – NEWS RELEASE – AngloGold Ashanti reports with deep regret that
an employee of our mining contractor at the Obuasi Gold Mine in Ghana, is missing after a
fall of ground in one of the operation’s mining stopes.

The incident occurred on Tuesday morning and immediately triggered a search and rescue
effort. The mine rescue teams have been working tirelessly, in difficult geotechnical
conditions in the immediate area, to locate our missing colleague. The relevant authorities
have been notified and are providing support during this time.
Safety remains our highest priority and all mining activity has been suspended. An update on
the situation will be provided in due course.
ENDS

Certain statements contained in this document, other than statements of historical fact, including,
without limitation, those concerning the economic outlook for the gold mining industry, expectations
regarding gold prices, production, total cash costs, all-in sustaining costs, all-in costs, cost savings and
other operating results, return on equity, productivity improvements, growth prospects and outlook of
AngloGold Ashanti’s operations, individually or in the aggregate, including the achievement of project
milestones, commencement and completion of commercial operations of certain of AngloGold Ashanti’s
exploration and production projects and the completion of acquisitions, dispositions or joint venture
transactions, AngloGold Ashanti’s liquidity and capital resources and capital expenditures and the
outcome and consequence of any potential or pending litigation or regulatory proceedings or
environmental health and safety issues, are forward-looking statements regarding AngloGold Ashanti’s
operations, economic performance and financial condition. These forward-looking statements or
forecasts involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause AngloGold
Ashanti’s actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from the anticipated results,
performance or achievements expressed or implied in these forward-looking statements. Although
AngloGold Ashanti believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements and
forecasts are reasonable, no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been
correct. Accordingly, results could differ materially from those set out in the forward-looking statements
as a result of, among other factors, changes in economic, social and political and market conditions,
the success of business and operating initiatives, changes in the regulatory environment and other
government actions, including environmental approvals, fluctuations in gold prices and exchange rates,
the outcome of pending or future litigation proceedings, any supply chain disruptions, any public health
crises, pandemics or epidemics (including the COVID-19 pandemic), and other business and
operational risks and other factors. For a discussion of such risk factors, refer to AngloGold Ashanti’s
annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended 31 December 2020, filed with the United States
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These factors are not necessarily all of the important
factors that could cause AngloGold Ashanti’s actual results to differ materially from those expressed in
any forward-looking statements. Other unknown or unpredictable factors could also have material
adverse effects on future results. Consequently, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on
forward-looking statements. AngloGold Ashanti undertakes no obligation to update publicly or release
any revisions to these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date
hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except to the extent required by applicable
law. All subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to AngloGold Ashanti or any
person acting on its behalf are qualified by the cautionary statements herein.
