4 4 HIGHLIGHTS Improved safety performance Solid operating performance from all businesses Successful start for second furnace at Empangeni Substantial strengthening of the rand (30%) mitigated by Favourable commodity markets Strong sales volumes Good cost control Solid operating performance

5 5 RAND STRENGTH AND COSTS Currency impact: 10c R 41 m EBIT Cost impact: administered prices fuel Ongoing cost and revenue focus Bottom line impacted by exchange rate R10.08 R7.04 average realised: 2H022H03 1H03 1H04

8 8 SAFETY, HEALTH & ENVIRONMENT No fatalities for the period - unfortunately 1 in Jan 2004 Lost day injury frequency at all time low Strategy to achieve international safety and environmental certification at all operations by Dec 2004 Lost day injury frequency rate* Zero tolerance… key focus * per million man hours worked

9 9 IRON ORE MARKETS World seaborne trade increased by 50 Mtpa Continued growth of Chinese imports Strong domestic sales 18.62% price increase Freight costs soar Chinese market continues to drive growth Global seaborne market Source: CRU

10 10 IRON ORE OPERATIONS Continued growth in production New calendar year record at Sishen Mt Due to high exports of FY03, low stocks at Saldanha influenced exports in 1H04 New production record Total production and exports

11 11 OREX RAIL PERFORMANCE Excellent operating efficiencies Continued growth in tonnage railed Capacity expansion to 29 Mt in 2004 Expansion critical for further growth in exports Sishen-Saldanha rail performance TargetActual

12 12 COAL MARKETS International coal prices influenced by: Strong demand for thermal coal Shortage in supply of coking coal Thermal coal supply to Matimba at record levels Strong local demand from the metals market Thermal coal and coke prices (US$/t) Sources: SA Coal Report, CRU Strong demand-driven market

13 13 COAL OPERATIONS Record production at Grootegeluk and Leeuwpan Strong focus on cost control Production volumes Valuable earnings contributor

14 14 HEAVY MINERALS MARKETS Signs of recovery in pigment market Titania slag market over- supplied and under pressure Zircon and rutile demand extremely strong due to Chinese growth Zircon and pigment prices (US$/t) Source: TZMI Gradual recovery in some segments

15 15 HEAVY MINERALS OPERATIONS Furnace 2 successfully commissioned in Sep 2003 Furnace ramp-up ahead of schedule First chloride slag sales - 12 kt Record synthetic rutile production from Tiwest JV kt World no 3 in TiO 2 units % of design capacity Ilmenite feed rate - Ticor SA

16 16 ZINC MARKETS Strong US$ price recovery Strong currency depressed Rand earnings Lower treatment charges impacted on results LME Zinc metal price Treatment charge revenue Rebound in US$ zinc price indexed: 100=1H02

17 17 BASE METALS OPERATING RESULTS Production marginally lower due to planned maintenance shut Record Zn concentrate output Zn metal (kt) Rosh Pinah Zn conc. (kt) Zincor Continued improvement at Rosh Pinah

18 18 INDUSTRIAL MINERALS Dolomite sales (Mt) FeSi production (t) On track to match record FeSi production of FY03 Growing external sales of FeSi Sustained dolomite sales despite weak domestic growth
