FINAL DIVIDEND FOR 2010 - ELECTION FOR STERLING DIVIDEND - AND RESULTS OF VOTING AT 2011 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Randgold Resources Limited confirmed today that shareholders approved an annual dividend for the year ended 31 December 2010 of US$0.20 per share. The dividend payment will be made on 27 May 2011 to shareholders on the register on 13 May 2011. The ex-dividend date will be 11 May 2011.

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 Friday 13 May 2011, 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 Friday 13 May 2011.

The exchange rate for payment to those who have elected to receive their dividends in sterling will be set on 16 May 2011.
