FINAL DIVIDEND FOR 2011 - ELECTION FOR STERLING DIVIDEND - AND RESULTS
OF VOTING AT 2012 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

London, 30 April 2012 - Randgold Resources Limited confirmed today
that shareholders approved an annual dividend for the year ended 31
December 2011 of US$0.40 per share. The dividend payment will be made
on 29 May 2012 to shareholders on the register on 11 May 2012. The
ex-dividend date will be 9 May 2012.

The United States dollar is the Company's main economic and reporting
currency. It is therefore the natural currency in which to determine
dividends. Nevertheless, shareholders wishing for the conversion of
dividend payments into sterling may do so by completing a sterling
election form which is available on the Company's website
 www.randgoldresources.com  and posting it back to the transfer
secretaries, to be received by Monday 14 May 2012, or by contacting
Computershare Investor Services (Jersey) Limited (Tel: +44 (0)870 707
4040). Shareholders who have previously elected to receive their
dividends in sterling will continue to do so until such time as they
change their election.

In addition, shareholders who have elected to receive sterling
dividends can mandate payments directly to their UK bank or building
society by visiting the Investor Centre website
 www.investorcentre.co.uk/jeor  by completing the dividend mandate form
which is available on the Company's website  www.randgoldresources.com 
and posting it back to the transfer secretaries, to be received by
Monday 14 May 2012.

The exchange rate for payment to those who have elected to receive
their dividends in sterling will be set on 15 May 2012.
