Certain statements made in this communication, including, without
limitation, those concerning the economic outlook for the gold mining

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

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 AngloGold

distributed to shareholders on 29 March 2011 and the company's 2010 annual
report on Form 20-F, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission in the United States on May 31, 2011.  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.  AngloGold Ashanti
undertakes no obligation to update publicly or release any revisions to
these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after
