Notes to editors

Lonmin, which is listed on both the London Stock Exchange and the Johannesburg
Stock Exchange, is one of the world's largest primary producers of PGMs. These
metals are essential  for many industrial  applications, especially  catalytic 
converters  for  internal  combustion  engine  emissions,  as  well  as  their 
widespread use in jewellery.

Lonmin's operations  are situated  in the  Bushveld Complex  in South  Africa, 
where nearly 80% of known global PGM resources are found.

The Company  creates  value  for shareholders  through  mining,  refining  and 
marketing PGMs and has  a vertically integrated  operational structure -  from 
mine to market. Lonmin's mining operations extract ore from which the  Process 
Division produces refined  PGMs for  delivery to  customers. Underpinning  the 
operations is the Shared Services function which provides high quality  levels 
of support and infrastructure across the operations.
