(“AngloGold Ashanti”, “AGA” or “Company”)



In terms of paragraph 3.75 to 3.78 of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements, shareholders are advised that,
following the conclusion of a comprehensive tender process, the Audit and Risk Committee has recommended,
and the Board has endorsed, the proposed appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. (“PwC”) as the
external auditor of AngloGold Ashanti with effect from the financial year 2023.

The change in external auditor was initiated by AngloGold Ashanti’s decision to early adopt mandatory audit
firm rotation. This appointment will be submitted to shareholders for approval at the annual general meeting of
the Company scheduled for May 2022. Ernst & Young Inc. (“EY”) will continue as external auditor of AngloGold
Ashanti in respect of the financial years 2021 and 2022.

AngloGold Ashanti thanks EY for their contribution over the years and looks forward to working with PwC.
