(JOHANNESBURG PRESS RELEASE) AngloGold Ashanti is pleased to announce an
agreement with Royal Road Minerals Limited ("Royal Road Minerals") for the sale of its
interests in Northern Colombia Holdings Limited ("Transaction"), as it seeks to focus on its
portfolio of projects in the country.
Northern Colombia Holdings, a wholly-owned subsidiary of AngloGold Ashanti, owns an
exploration title package comprised of mining concession agreements covering approximately
36,000 hectares of land. This package includes the rights to acquire mining concessions over
approximately 215,000 hectares of land in prospective mineral belts in the Nariño, Cauca and
Antioquia departments of Colombia.
This Transaction supports the Company's broader strategic objective to maintain a focused
and efficient portfolio. In Colombia, AngloGold Ashanti will focus on its key projects in the
region, particularly Quebradona and Gramalote.
The sale of the exploration title package under Northern Colombia Holdings Limited represents
approximately 70% by area of the explorationtitles outside of AngloGold Ashanti's three key
projects in Colombia. Upon closing of the Transaction, AngloGold Ashanti will receive a cash
payment of approximately US$4.6 million. Further payments will be made to AngloGold
Ashanti in the event of certain milestones being achieved by Royal Road Minerals including:
US$5 million upon the declaration of an inferred mineral resource of not less than one
million gold equivalent ounces on any specific area ("Specific Project")
US$5 million on completion of a feasibility study for any Specific Project;
US$5 million on commencement of commercial production for any Specific Project;
US$20 million in four equal quarterly payments in the first year following the
commencement of commercial production for any Specific Project.
In the event Royal Road Minerals declares an inferred mineral resource of not less than five
million gold equivalent ounces on a Specific Project, AngloGold Ashanti has a once-off option
to purchase a 75% interest in that Specific Project and certain of the receipts mentioned above
are then forfeited for that Specific Project.

Closing of the Transaction is subject to certain conditions precedent, including the completion
of a capital raise of at least US$3.5 million by Royal Road Minerals and the receipt of certain
regulatory approvals by Royal Road Minerals and AngloGold Ashanti.
