7(d)     Approve Restricted Share Scheme                       ADJOURNED
         (Special Resolution number 4)

At the annual general meeting of Randgold Resources Limited held on Monday 28
April 2008, a decision was taken by the members present to adjourn consideration
of two resolutions, namely ordinary resolution number 4 and special resolution
number 7(d). The adjournment was proposed to afford our shareholders the
opportunity to reconsider their proxy relating to these two resolutions.  The
directors considered this to be appropriate, in light of certain voting agencies
having indicated that the performance criteria for the award of restricted
shares in terms of the proposed new scheme and for the payment of bonuses were
unclear, and that the members of the remuneration committee were deemed not to
be independent, by virtue of their long membership of the board.

Consequently, the directors have communicated with holders of a majority of our
shares and now believe that these shareholders have a better understanding of
both the performance criteria for the share and bonus schemes, and the report of
the remuneration committee, and that the adjourned resolutions will now receive
an informed response from shareholders.

The directors can confirm that specific performance criteria are set by the
remuneration committee in consultation with the executives and approved by the
board, and the management contracts specify minimum targets required to earn
bonus payments.  Bonus payments are also capped as to the amount that can be
earned.  Furthermore, all members of the remuneration committee are considered
by the board to be independent.  The current board is small, consisting of two
executive and six non-executive directors.  Since 2006, two new independent
directors have been appointed and a phased succession plan is in place.

The adjourned annual general meeting will take place on Thursday 15 May 2008 at
11h00 (UK time) and the required notice of the adjourned annual general meeting
and proxy form will be posted to shareholders shortly.
