FINAL DIVIDEND FOR 2012, ELECTION FOR STERLING DIVIDEND, AND RESULTS OF
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING


London, 29 April 2013 - Randgold Resources confirmed today that at
the Company's Annual General Meeting held at 8.30 a.m. today, 29 April
2013 shareholders approved a final dividend for the year ended 31
December 2012 of USD0.50 per share. The dividend payment will be made
on Thursday 30 May 2013 to shareholders on the register on Friday 10
May 2013. The ex-dividend date will be Wednesday 8 May 2013.

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 Pound Sterling may do so by completing a Pound
Sterling election form which is available on the Company's website
 www.randgoldresources.com  and posting it to the Company's registrars,
Computershare Investor Services (Jersey) Limited to be received by
Monday 13 May 2013, or by contacting the Company's registrars (Tel: +44
(0) 870 707 4040). Shareholders who have previously elected to receive
their dividends in Pound Sterling will continue to do so until such
time as they change their election.

In addition, shareholders who have elected to receive Pound 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 to the Company's registrars to be received by Monday 13
May 2013.

The exchange rate for payment to those who have elected to receive
their dividends in Pounds Sterling will be set on Wednesday 15 May
2013.

The Company also announces that at the Company's Annual General Meeting
all of the resolutions were passed on a poll. Copies of all the
resolutions passed have been submitted to the National Storage
Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at
 www.hemscott.com/nsm.do .
