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, return on shareholders'
equity, productivity improvements, 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,
AngloGold Ashanti's liquidity and capital resources and capital expenditures
and the outcome and consequence of any potential or pending litigation or
regulatory proceedings or environmental issues, are forward-looking statements
or forecasts regarding AngloGold Ashanti's operations, economic performance and
financial condition. These forward-looking statements or forecasts 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 and
forecasts 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, 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 17 July 2012 that was filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission on 25 July 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
operations or any other measures of performance prepared in accordance with
IFRS.  In addition, the presentation of these measures may not be comparable to
similarly titled measures other companies may use. AngloGold Ashanti posts
