Gold Fields announces the creation of a new South African gold mining company through the proposed unbundling of its 100% owned subsidiary, Sibanye Gold, formerly known as GFI Mining South Africa Proprietary Limited, which holds the KDC and Beatrix gold mines as well as various service companies. Subject to approval by the JSE and the NYSE, Sibanye Gold will be listed as a separate and independent company on both exchanges in February 2013. Sibanye Gold shares will then be distributed to existing Gold Fields shareholders. Both Gold Fields and Sibanye Gold will be domiciled in South Africa with their primary listing of shares on the JSE and a secondary listing of American depository receipts on the NYSE. The other existing secondary listings on the Swiss, Dubai and Brussels stock exchanges for Gold Fields will remain unchanged. Following the unbundling, Gold Fields will retain the balance of its current portfolio of assets, including the developing South Deep Gold Mine located in South Africa.
