The Company is pleased to report that its implementation of a comprehensive mine development plan at CRM is progressing well. As a result of the planned temporary suspension of stoping at the Zandfontein section, production in Q4 2012 is lower than in previous quarters.

The Company will no longer be providing quarterly production figures in advance of the release of its quarterly financial results until full production resumes at Zandfontein, which is anticipated to be in 2014.

The qualified person having reviewed the operating results presented in this press release is Mr. Brian Montpellier, P.Eng.

Eastplats expects to release its full fourth quarter results on Thursday, March 14, 2013.

Total shares issued and outstanding: 928,187,807
