LGL's (Lihir Gold): Amendment to 2008 Preliminary Final Report

PORT MORESBY, PAPUA NEW GUINEA--(Marketwire - Feb. 20, 2009) - Lihir Gold Ltd (TSX:LGG)(ASX:LGL)(NASDAQ:LIHR) ("LGL") refers to the following documents filed with SEDAR yesterday, 19 February 2009:

- Lihir Gold Limited's preliminary final report (Appendix 4E) and Annual Financial Report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008; and.

- Market Release - Financial Results.

As a result of file corruption, a formatting error occurred in the current liabilities section of the Statements of Financial Position in the preliminary final report (Appendix 4E) and Annual Financial Report. The information was correctly set out in the Statement of Financial Position in the Market Release. A similar issue arose in Note 18, Property, Plant and Equipment.

The Company has amended the information as to the number of employees whose remuneration and benefits exceeded the equivalent of PNG Kina 100,000 in Note 33 to the Annual Financial Report (on page 71).

There have been minor rounding, formatting and pagination changes flowing on from these amendments.

A revised version of the preliminary final report (Appendix 4E) and Annual Financial Report will be available on SEDAR shortly at (http://www.sedar.com) and on the Company's website: www.LGLgold.com.
