APPOINTMENT OF GOLD FIELDS CHAIR OF THE BOARD AND LEAD
INDEPENDENT DIRECTOR

The Board of Directors of Gold Fields (“Board”) is pleased to announce
the appointment of Mr. Yunus Suleman as the new Chair of the Board of the
Company with effect from the 2022 Annual General Meeting (“AGM”),
scheduled for 1 June 2022. Mr Suleman will succeed Ms Cheryl Carolus, who
will step down at the 2022 AGM, after 7 years as Chair of the Company.

Mr. Suleman was appointed as a Non-Executive Director of the Board on
1 September 2016 and has been Chairman of the Audit Committee since
24 May 2017.

The Board further announces that Mr. Steve Reid had been elected Lead
Independent Director of the Board with immediate effect.

Mr. Reid was appointed as a Non-Executive Director of the Board on
1 February 2016 and Chairman of the Remuneration Committee since
13 February 2017.

Gold Fields’ Chair, Ms Cheryl Carolus, congratulated Messrs Suleman and
Reid with these appointments: “I am honoured to be handing over the Chair
of the Board to someone of the calibre of Mr Suleman, who has been an
integral part of the refreshing of the Board in recent years. We also
have great comfort in the appointment of Mr Reid, with his unique skill
set and knowledge, as Lead Independent Director. Both of these
appointments form part of the orderly and timeous transition of the
leadership of the Gold Fields Board, following my decision to step down
as Chair at the June 2022 AGM,” she said.

The Board paid tribute to Ms Carolus’s contributions to and leadership at
the Gold Fields Board, which she joined in 2009 and led as Chair from
2013: “We cannot express our gratitude enough to Ms Carolus for her role
as Chair of the Company. Her contributions will remain part of Gold Fields
for many years to come.”
