Reuters Mining Summit Telephonic Interview with Keith Rumble                    
`The company participated today by telephone in the Reuters Mining Summit in New
York. The salient points made in response to questions are set out below for the
purposes of confirming the information provided.                                
Keith Rumble, CEO, said that, in respect of anticipated headline earnings for   
the full year, while in the interim results announcement in February this year  
the company would, at that stage, have forecast a similar sort of performance   
for the full year, a softer rand, good operational performance and strong metal 
prices, particularly nickel, meant that he thought that `we will be materially  
better than that`.                                                              
He said that a consensus forecast for headline earnings for the full year was   
just under 36 Rand. `I think it will be somewhat better than that.`             
He also advised that platinum production was expected to be double that of the  
first half, plus 4%.                                                            
He also indicated that in addition to the amount declared in the interim results
as spent at that time on share buy backs, a further R100m had been spent to     
The results for the year ended 30 June 2005 can be expected to be influenced by 
the rand dollar exchange rate. If the expected results are confirmed with a     
reasonable degree of certainty and require a trading statement in terms of the  
JSE Securities Exchange South Africa`s Listings Requirements, a trading         
statement will be published immediately.
