Certain statements made in this communication, other than statements of
historical fact, including, without limitation, those concerning the economic
outlook for the gold mining industry, expectations regarding gold prices,
production, cash costs and other operating results, growth prospects and
outlook of AngloGold Ashanti's operations, individually or in the aggregate,
including the achievement of project milestones, the completion and
commencement of commercial operations of certain of AngloGold Ashanti's
exploration and production projects and the completion of acquisitions and
dispositions, any plan regarding the restructuring of any of AngloGold
Ashanti's operations, AngloGold Ashanti's liquidity and capital resources and
capital expenditure and the outcome and consequence of any potential or pending
litigation or regulatory proceedings or environmental issues, are
forward-looking statements regarding AngloGold Ashanti's operations, economic
performance and financial condition. These forward-looking statements 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 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, political and market conditions, success of business and
operating initiatives, changes in the regulatory environment and other
government actions including environmental approvals and actions, fluctuations
in gold prices and exchange rates, and business and operational risk
management. For a discussion of certain of these and other factors, refer to
AngloGold Ashanti's annual report for the year ended 31 December 2011, which
was distributed to shareholders on 4 April 2012, the company's 2011 annual
report on Form 20-F, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission in the United States on 23 April 2012 and the prospectus supplement
to the company's prospectus dated July 17, 2012 that was filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on July 25, 2012. 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, stakeholders 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 today's date 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. 
This communication may contain certain "Non-GAAP" financial measures. AngloGold
Ashanti utilises certain Non-GAAP performance measures and ratios in managing
its business. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and
not as an alternative for, the reported operating results or cash flow from

IFRS. In addition, the presentation of these measures may not be comparable to
similarly titled measures other companies may use.
