Update on 2010 Gold Production and Proposed Combination with Polyus Gold


KazakhGold Group Limited ("KazakhGold") notes the statement released yesterday by its controlling shareholder, OJSC Polyus Gold ("Polyus Gold"), in relation to its proposed combination with KazakhGold (the "Proposed Combination").  KazakhGold welcomes this statement of continuing support for the Proposed Combination, which is reproduced in full below.  As described in the statement, KazakhGold also confirms that its gold production in the six months ended 30 June 2010 increased by 36%, as compared with the corresponding period of 2009, and it currently estimates that its total gold production for 2010 will increase by approximately 50% as compared with 2009.


Text of the official statement of Polyus Gold:


"We are closely following developments in Kazakhstan as well as publications in the press concerning the acquisition by the Polyus Gold group of 50.1% of the shares of KazakhGold and the proposed combination of the companies.


Polyus Gold management remains confident that the transaction to combine KazakhGold and Polyus Gold - the result of which will be the creation of the leading gold producer in the CIS, with assets in Kazakhstan and Russia - will be completed within the time period previously announced.  We are also confident that this transaction is in the best interests of all company shareholders and is in line with the vision of Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbaev to attract additional investment into the country's economy, create new jobs, and increase gold production volumes.


The 36% rise in gold production by KazakhGold under Polyus Gold management in the first half of 2010 compared to the same period last year and the estimated 50% increase in total KazakhGold gold production for 2010 underlines our firm intention to continue to invest in developing the company's assets in Kazakhstan and implement our strategy for KazakhGold.


Polyus Gold management is ready to engage and cooperate with the Kazakhstan authorities in any way in order to reach a mutually advantageous resolution as soon as possible."

This announcement has been prepared for the purposes of complying with English law and the information disclosed may not be the same as that which would have been disclosed if this announcement had been prepared in accordance with the laws and regulations of any jurisdiction outside of England.


This announcement is not intended to, and does not constitute, or form part of, an offer to sell

or an invitation to purchase or subscribe for any securities or a solicitation of any vote or approval in any jurisdiction. Except as amended by this announcement, the terms and conditions of the Private Exchange Offer are contained solely in the Private Exchange Offer Document, and the related Forms of Acceptance and accompanying documents, as they may be amended or supplemented from time to time.

Notice to U.S. investors


It is important for U.S. securities holders to be aware that this announcement is subject to disclosure and regulations in England that are different from those in the United States. In addition, U.S. securities holders should be aware that this announcement has been prepared in accordance with English format and style, which differs from the U.S. format and style. In particular the financial information of Polyus Gold included herein has been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards, and thus may not be comparable to financial information of U.S. companies whose financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.


The KazakhGold GDRS and the KazakhGold Shares to be represented by the KazakhGold GDRs have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state of the U.S., and may not be offered, sold, delivered or transferred except pursuant to an available exemption from or in a transaction not subject to the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws.


These written materials are not an offer of securities for sale in the United States. Securities may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an exemption from registration under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Any public offering of securities of the Company to be made in the United States would be made by means of a prospectus to be obtained from the issuer or selling security holder and that would contain detailed information about the Company and management, as well as financial statements. The Company does not intend to register any portion of the offering in the United States or conduct a public offering of the securities in the United States.


The Private Exchange Offer is made for Polyus Securities and is subject to disclosure requirements of a foreign country that are different from those of the United States. Financial statements included in this Document, if any, have been prepared in accordance with foreign accounting standards that may not be comparable to the financial statements of United States companies.


It may be difficult for U.S. holders of KazakhGold GDRs to enforce their rights and any claim they may have arising under the U.S. federal securities laws, since KazakhGold is located in a foreign country, and some or all of its officers and directors may be residents of a foreign country. U.S. holders of KazakhGold GDRs may not be able to sue a foreign company or its officers or directors in a foreign court for violations of the U.S. securities laws. It may be difficult to compel a foreign company and its affiliates to subject themselves to a U.S. court's judgment.


You should be aware that KazakhGold may purchase Polyus Securities otherwise than under the Private Exchange Offer, such as in open market or privately negotiated transactions.


Forward looking statements


This announcement, including any information included or incorporated by reference, may contain "forward-looking statements" concerning Polyus Gold, Jenington and KazakhGold. Generally, the words "will", "may", "should", "could", "would", "can", "continue", "opportunity", "believes", "expects", "intends", "anticipates", "estimates" or similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include statements relating to the following: (i) future capital expenditures, expenses, revenues, earnings, synergies, economic performance, indebtedness, financial condition, dividend policy, losses and future prospects; (ii) business and management strategies and the expansion and growth of Polyus Gold, Jenington and KazakhGold operations and potential synergies resulting from the Proposed Combination; and (iii) the effects of government regulation on Polyus Gold, Jenington and KazakhGold's businesses. Many of these risks and uncertainties relate to factors that are beyond the companies' abilities to control or estimate precisely, such as future market conditions and the behaviours of other market participants, and therefore undue reliance should not be placed on such statements which speak only as at the date of this announcement. Each of Polyus Gold, Jenington and KazakhGold assumes no obligation in respect of, and does not intend to update, these forward-looking statements, except as required pursuant to applicable law.
