RESULTS OF GENERAL MEETING AND UPDATE REGARDING THE TRANSACTION

Unless otherwise indicated, capitalised words and terms contained in this announcement shall bear
the same meanings ascribed thereto in the circular to DRDGOLD shareholders, dated Monday,
26 February 2018 ("Circular").

1.   Introduction

     Shareholders are referred to the Circular, in terms of which Shareholders were advised of, inter
     alia

     - the proposed acquisition by DRDGOLD of the WRTRP Assets, by way of the acquisition of a
       100% shareholding in WRTRP, from Sibanye-Stillwater in exchange for the allotment and
       issue by DRDGOLD of the Consideration Shares to Sibanye-Stillwater, such that
       Sibanye-Stillwater will hold approximately 38% of all DRDGOLD Shares in issue (including
       Treasury Shares) following the issue of the Consideration Shares ("Acquisition");

     - the granting of the Option to Sibanye-Stillwater to subscribe for so many Issue Shares for
       cash as will result in Sibanye-Stillwater holding 50.1% of all DRDGOLD Shares in issue
       (including Treasury Shares) following the issue of the Consideration Shares and the Issue
       Shares ("Specific Issue"); and

     - the proposed waiver of the requirement for Sibanye-Stillwater to extend a mandatory offer to
       the remaining Shareholders to acquire any DRDGOLD Shares held by such persons, which
       results from Sibanye-Stillwater holding in excess of 35% of the voting securities of the
       Company, following the implementation of the Acquisition ("Waiver").
     
     Furthermore, in order to, inter alia, give effect to the Acquisition and the Specific Issue,
     DRDGOLD is required to increase the authorised ordinary share capital of the Company, by way
     of an amendment to the DRDGOLD memorandum of incorporation ("DRDGOLD MOI").
     DRDGOLD also proposed additional amendments to the DRDGOLD MOI, which include the
     alignment of the DRDGOLD MOI with the latest regulations.
