TOTAL VOTING RIGHTS

London, 31 May 2011 - Randgold Resources Limited announces that, in accordance with FSA's Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules, its issued share capital consists of 91,138,870 (ninety one million one hundred and thirty eight 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, 70,672 (seventy thousand and six hundred and seventy two) 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 91,061,398 (ninety one million sixty one thousand three hundred and ninety eight).

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.
