Gold Fields Sells Stake in Eldorado Gold for CAD323 Million



    JOHANNESBURG, Sept. 4 /CNW/ - Gold Fields Limited (Gold Fields) (JSE,
NYSE, NASDAQ Dubai: GFI) is pleased to announce that it has disposed of its
holding in Eldorado Gold Corporation (Eldorado). Gold Fields disposed of
27,824,654 Eldorado shares at CAD11,61 per share for a total consideration of
CAD323 million (approximately US$293 million(*)).
    This share disposal does not impact Gold Fields' top-up right as
negotiated with Eldorado in connection with the sale to Eldorado of its 19,9%
stake in Sino Gold Mining Limited (Sino Gold). If Eldorado acquires in any
manner an additional 5% or more of the shares of Sino Gold during the 18
months ending in early December 2010, Gold Fields will receive a top-up should
a higher price be paid in that transaction than the original consideration of
48 Eldorado shares for every 100 Sino Gold shares.
    The proceeds of this disposal will be used for debt repayments.
