statements. Although AngloGold Ashanti believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements or forecasts are
reasonable, no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct. Accordingly, results could differ materially from

and other factors, refer to AngloGold Ashanti's annual report for the year ended 31 December 2011, which was distributed to shareholders on
