Certain statements made in this communication, other than statements of historical fact, including, without limitation, those concerning
the economic outlook for the gold mining industry, expectations regarding gold prices, production, cash costs and other operating
results, return on shareholders’ equity, productivity improvements, growth prospects and outlook of AngloGold Ashanti’s operations,
individually or in the aggregate, including the completion and commencement of commercial operations of certain of AngloGold
Ashanti’s exploration and production projects and the completion of acquisitions and dispositions, AngloGold Ashanti’s liquidity, capital
resources and capital expenditure and the outcome and consequence of any potential or pending litigation or regulatory proceedings or
environmental issues, are forward-looking statements regarding AngloGold Ashanti’s operations, economic performance and financial
condition. These forward-looking statements are not based on historical facts, but rather reflect our current expectations concerning
future results and events and generally may be identified by the use of forward-looking words or phrases such as “believe”, “aim”,
“expect”, “anticipate”, “intend”, “foresee”, “forecast”, “likely”, “should”, “planned”, “may”, “estimated”, “potential” or other similar words and
phrases. Similarly, statements that describe our objectives, plans or goals are or may be forward-looking statements. These forward-
looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause AngloGold Ashanti’s actual results,
performance or achievements to differ materially from the anticipated results, performance or achievements expressed or implied in
these forward-looking statements. Although AngloGold Ashanti believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking
statements are reasonable, no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct. Accordingly, results
could differ materially from those set out in the forward-looking statements as a result of, among other factors, changes in economic and
market conditions, success of business and operating initiatives, changes in the regulatory environment and other government actions
including environmental approvals and actions, fluctuations in gold prices and exchange rates and business and operational risk
management. For a discussion of certain of these and other factors, refer to the preliminary prospectus supplement to the company’s
prospectus dated July 17, 2012 that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 24, 2013. These factors are not
necessarily all of the important factors that could cause AngloGold Ashanti’s actual results to differ materially from those expressed in
any forward-looking statements. Other unknown or unpredictable factors could also have material adverse effects on future results.
Consequently, stakeholders are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. AngloGold Ashanti undertakes no
obligation to update publicly or release any revisions to these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after today’s
date or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except to the extent required by applicable law. All subsequent written or oral
forward-looking statements attributable to AngloGold Ashanti or any person acting on its behalf are qualified by the cautionary
statements herein.
