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.
