UPDATE ON INDICATIVE MERGER PROPOSAL


London, Friday 15 August 2003 - Following the announcement by Randgold Resources
Limited ('Randgold Resources')(LSE: RRS)(NASDAQ: GOLD) on Friday 8 August that
it had submitted an indicative merger proposal to Ashanti Goldfields Company
Limited ('Ashanti'), Randgold Resources is pleased to note the announcement made
today by the Government of Ghana, the text of which is reproduced below:

'Following the proposals presented to it in May for a merger between Ashanti
Goldfields Ltd. and Anglo Gold Ltd. of South Africa, the Government of Ghana has
also received indicative proposals for a merger with Randgold Resources Limited,
a gold mining company based in Jersey, UK.

As previously announced, the Government has appointed a consortium led by
Societe Generale to act as advisers to the Government in its capacity as a (16.9
per cent.) shareholder in Ashanti, holder of the golden share in Ashanti, and
regulator of the mining industry in Ghana, and to assist the Government in
arriving at a decision on the future of Ashanti Goldfields Ltd.

The Government intends to reach a decision on this matter once it has had the
opportunity to consider fully, in conjunction with its advisers, both proposals
and any others that may be received.  In coming to its decision, the Government
will be guided solely by what it considers to be in the best interests of Ghana
and its people, and of Ashanti Goldfields Ltd. as a major transnational mining
enterprise with its roots in Ghana.
