London, 31 August 2010 - Randgold Resources Limited announces that,
in accordance with FSA's Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules, its
issued share capital consists of 90,927,870 (ninety million nine
hundred and twenty seven thousand and 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 6,000 (six thousand) issued ordinary shares in
Treasury. In addition, 77,214 (seventy seven thousand and two hundred
and fourteen) 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
90,844,656 (ninety million eight hundred and forty four thousand six
hundred and fifty six).

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.
