Further to the announcement on 2 March 2012 relating to the proposed
acquisition by AngloGold Ashanti of First Uranium (Pty) Ltd (South Africa)
("FUSA"), a wholly owned subsidiary of First Uranium Corporation ("FIUC") and
the owner of Mine Waste Solutions ("MWS") for a cash consideration of US$335
million (the "transaction"), AngloGold Ashanti welcomes the decision taken
today by FIUC shareholders and debt holders to approve the transaction.
Implementation of the transaction is expected to occur before the end of the
month subject to the remaining conditions precedent being fulfilled. The
transaction will be funded from AngloGold Ashanti's existing cash reserves and
debt facilities. 
"This acquisition provides us with valuable gold and uranium production,"
AngloGold Ashanti Chief Executive Officer Mark Cutifani said. "The deal makes
sense in that it offers significant synergies, facilitates long-term
rehabilitation of this area and secures long-term employment opportunities in
South Africa." 
MWS is a recently commissioned tailings retreatment operation located in South
Africa's Vaal River region and in the immediate proximity of AngloGold
Ashanti's own tailings facilities. AngloGold Ashanti holds a 19.8% equity
interest in FIUC.

management. For a discussion of certain of these and other factors, refer to

adverse effects on future results. Consequently, readers are cautioned not to
