Gold Fields Unbundles GFIMSA (KDC And Beatrix) To Create A New South African Gold Mining Company Called Sibanye Gold

The listing of Sibanye Gold is scheduled for mid-February 2013 and existing Gold Fields' shareholders will then hold two separate shares or ADRs, namely the newly distributed Sibanye Gold shares or ADRs as well as their original Gold Fields shares or depositary receipts (as the case may be).

The transaction does not require shareholder approval and the listings have been approved by the South African Reserve Bank.

A full pre-listing statement will be released in mid-January 2013.
