Resignation of Chair and Appointment of New Chair

JOHANNESBURG, Feb. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - The Chair of Gold Fields Limited (Gold 
Fields) (JSE, NYSE, NASDAQ Dubai: GFI), Dr Mamphela Ramphele, has announced 
her resignation from the Company's Board of Directors with immediate effect. 
Dr Ramphele has decided to retire as Chair to further her socio-economic and 
political work. She has resigned from most of her private sector directorships 
and will relinquish all other remaining private sector directorships and 
positions to focus on these activities. 
Gold Fields' non-executive director, Cheryl Carolus, will succeed Dr Ramphele 
as Chair of the Company with immediate effect. Ms Carolus was appointed a 
director of Gold Fields on 10 March 2009. She is Executive Chair of Peotona 
Group Holdings Ltd and is a director of Investec and De Beers, amongst others. 
Dr Ramphele said: "I am pleased that during my tenure at Gold Fields 
significant progress has been made in entrenching the sustainability of the 
Company's operations worldwide. I also believe that the separate listing and 
unbundling of the Company's KDC and Beatrix mines into Sibanye Gold will 
provide the South African operations with the dedicated and focused management 
as well as full control over their cash flows to extend their life of mine in 
a sustainable manner to the benefit of investors, employees and communities. 
"I would like to thank my fellow directors and the Gold Fields management 
team, led by CEO Nick Holland, for their support over the past two-and-a-half 
years. It's been a privilege working with them," Dr Ramphele said. 
Dr Ramphele was appointed to the Board of Gold Fields Limited on 1 July 2010 
and chaired the Board from 2 November 2010. She also served on various Board 
Committees during her tenure. 
The Board and management of Gold Fields thank Dr Ramphele for her significant 
contribution to the Company and her leadership of the Board and wish her every 
success in her new ventures.
