South Africa  Signing of the definitive agreement between Gold Fields Limited and IAMGOLD Corporation GoldFields
Date: 
Further to the announcement of August 11, 2004, Gold Fields Limited (JSE, NYSE:GFI) ("Gold Fields") and IAMGOLD Corporation, (TSX:IMG; AMEX:IAG) ("IAMGOLD") today announced that they have signed a definitive agreement setting out the terms on which IAMGOLD will acquire the assets of Gold Fields outside of the Southern African Development Community (the "SADC"). Under the definitive agreement, IAMGOLD will issue, subject to adjustment, to Gold Fields 351,690,218 fully paid common shares in consideration for Gold Fields’ non-SADC mining, development and exploration assets. The transaction will result in Gold Fields owning approximately 70 percent of the fully diluted equity of the enlarged company. In addition, shortly before completion, IAMGOLD shareholders (other than Gold Fields), registered as such on a record date prior to closing of the transaction, will receive a special cash dividend of C$0.50 per IAMGOLD share. For Canadian RRSP purposes, the enlarged company will remain a Canadian corporation.

Subject to the approval of the Johannesburg Securities Exchange ("JSE"), an information circular setting out full details of the transaction will be mailed to shareholders of record of Gold Fields and IAMGOLD on or around 10 November 2004. The transaction remains subject to approval by IAMGOLD and Gold Fields shareholders and satisfaction of certain other conditions precedent, including the receipt of all required regulatory approvals. The date for the shareholder meetings, expected to occur in early to mid-December, will be provided in the information circulars to be mailed to shareholders and a further announcement will be made at that time. The transaction is expected to close on or around 31 December 2004.

Following closing of the transaction, the name of the newly created corporation will be changed to Gold Fields International Limited (“Gold Fields International”).

Gold Fields International will have interests in six operating mines: four in West Africa (Tarkwa and Damang in Ghana, Sadiola and Yatela in Mali) and two in Australia (St. Ives and Agnew) with 2005 forecast production totaling 2.0 million ounces of gold. In addition, Gold Fields International will have two near-term greenfield development projects, located in Finland (Arctic Platinum) and, subject to completion of the acquisition thereof, Peru (Cerro Corona), along with various royalty interests and an attractive portfolio of advanced-stage exploration projects in Latin America, Canada, Australia, China and Africa.
