Further to the announcement dated 23 August 2011, Implats confirms that its     
Zimbabwean subsidiary, Zimbabwe Platinum Mines (Pvt) Limited ("Zimbabwe         
Platinum Mines"), received a letter dated 6 September 2011 from the             
Zimbabwean Minister of Youth Development, Indigenisation and Empowerment        
(the "Minister") in which the Minister advised that  Zimbabwe Platinum          
Mines`  Indigenisation Plan did not meet the minimum requirements of the        
law and that accordingly, the Minister had requested the Zimbabwean             
Minister of Mines to cancel  Zimbabwe Platinum Mines` operating licence.        
This development follows several meetings between management and the            
relevant authorities regarding  Zimbabwe Platinum Mines` Indigenisation         
Shareholders are advised that the Zimbabwe Platinum Mines` operating            
licence has not been cancelled and discussions between management and the       
relevant authorities in this regard are on-going despite the Minister`s         
letter of 6 September 2011. Implats will continue to inform shareholders of     
on-going material developments.
