MIMOSA SAFETY INCIDENT                                                          
Implats and Aquarius Platinum Limited confirm that a fire occurred at the       
jointly owned Mimosa operation in Zimbabwe during the night. This was caused    
when the conveyor belt in the main decline ignited. The fire has been contained.
All employees have been accounted for and no injuries have been reported.  The  
majority of the workforce was evacuated following the incident. Initially 75    
employees were accommodated in refuge bays due to low visibility. They are now  
in the process of being moved to surface. This is expected to be completed      
during the course of the afternoon.                                             
At this stage, the extent of the damage and impact on production cannot be      
ascertained.  Further information will be communicated in due course.
