BUSINESS AS USUAL AT RANDGOLD'S MALI MINES

Randgold Resources said today its
Loulo-Gounkoto gold mining complex as well as its Morila joint venture
were operating normally following the declaration of a state of
emergency in Mali over the weekend as French forces joined the Malian
army in quelling rebels in the north of the country.

The Randgold operations are in safe areas some 700 kilometres distant
from conflict zones and have not been affected by any of the issues
that have afflicted Mali over the last ten months, including the recent
attacks by rebels in the north of the country. Chief executive Mark
Bristow said the company was nevertheless monitoring the situation
closely and had put contingency plans in place to ensure that it could
continue to contribute to the economy of Mali, while protecting
Randgold's people and property. Should the current military build-up
impact on logistics, both operations are well-stocked with fuel and
other consumables.
