TOTAL VOTING RIGHTS

Randgold Resources Limited announces that, in
accordance with FSA's Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules, its
issued share capital consists of 91,107,870 (ninety one million one
hundred and seven thousand eight hundred and seventy) ordinary shares
of US$0.05 each.

Each ordinary share carries the right to one vote in relation to all
circumstances at general meetings of Randgold Resources. Randgold
Resources holds 6,800 (six thousand eight hundred) issued ordinary
shares in Treasury. In addition, 72,530 (seventy two thousand and five
hundred and thirty) ordinary shares, including ordinary shares
represented by American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") are currently held
by Computershare Investor Services, Inc. on trust for former
shareholders of Moto, who have yet to claim the ordinary shares (or
ADSs, as applicable) to which they are entitled following the
acquisition of Moto in October 2009. These shares (and ADSs, as
applicable) will not confer voting rights whilst held on trust.

Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company is
91,028,540 (ninety one million twenty eight thousand five hundred and
forty).

The above figure can be used by shareholders (and others with
notification obligations) as the denominator for the calculations by
which to determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or
a change to their interest in, Randgold Resources under the FSA's
Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
