Johannesburg, 31 July 2003 - Following his appointment to the Randgold &
Exploration (JSE: RNG) (NASDAQ: RANGY) board, Brett Kebble has resigned as a
director of Randgold Resources (LSE: RRS) (NASDAQ: GOLD), the London and
Nasdaq-listed company in which Randgold & Exploration has a 43% interest.

It was announced earlier this week that Randgold & Exploration was set to become
the vehicle for the JCI group's mining interests after its black economic
empowerment deal with Phikoloso Mining.

"We understand Brett's decision and commend him for his contribution to the
revitalisation of the once moribund Randgold Group and to the transformation of
the South African mining industry in the 90s.  His entrepreneurial drive helped
enable the birth of Randgold Resources and the Group's support was critical when
we embarked on our biggest challenge to date, the development of the Morila
mine," said Randgold Resources chief executive Dr Mark Bristow.
