               CANCELLATION OF LISTING OF ORDINARY SHARES ON THE               
                  OFFICIAL LIST OF THE LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE                   

Impala Platinum Holdings Limited ("the Company") has requested the UK Financial
Services Authority to cancel the listing of the Company's ordinary shares of
2.5 South African cents each ("Ordinary Shares") on the UK Official List and to
cancel the admission of the Ordinary Shares to trading on the London Stock
Exchange's market for listed securities. It is expected that the cancellation
of the UK listing and of the admission of the Ordinary Shares to trading on the
London Stock Exchange ("LSE") will take effect at 8.00 a.m. (UK time) on 14
January 2013 (the "effective date").

The Ordinary Shares have been listed on the UK Official List since February
1973. Currently, shareholders holding approximately 0.12% of the total issued
capital of the Company appear on the Company's UK register of members.

However, since listing on the LSE, only a small amount of trading in the
Ordinary Shares has been conducted on the LSE and taking into account the high
costs associated with being admitted to the UK Official List, the board of
directors of the Company consider that there is no longer any significant
benefit to the Company in maintaining this listing.

Following cancellation of the listing and the admission to trading in London,
the UK register maintained by Computershare Investor Services PLC will
continue. However, subject to putting the appropriate arrangements in place,
shareholders will only be able to trade their shares on the JSE Limited ("JSE")
after the effective date. It should be noted that in order to trade their
shares on the JSE, shareholders will be required to dematerialise their
shareholding. For further information in this regard shareholders should
contact Computershare at the address or telephone number below.
