company's listing on the London Stock Exchange in 1997, is the chairman of the
company's audit committee and a member of the remuneration committee.  He is a
former chairman of HSBC Investment Bank and is currently also chairman of Lonrho
Africa, vice-chairman of Legal & General and of the Court of Governors of the
London School of Economics and a director of various other companies.

Chairman Roger Kebble said that with Randgold Resources' recent inclusion in the
