JOHANNESBURG, February 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Gold Fields Limited (Gold Fields) (JSE, NYSE, NASDAQ Dubai: GFI) is pleased to announce its Mineral Reserve and Mineral Resource declaration as at 31 December 2013.

Gold Fields' managed gold Mineral Resources totalled 136.7 million ounces (December 2012: 149.3 million ounces) and Mineral Reserves 52.6 million ounces (December 2012: 59.4 million ounces).

The decline in the Group's Mineral Reserves is mainly attributable to a US$1,300/oz gold price used compared with the US$1,500/oz gold price used in the December 2012 declaration. Other than price impacts, mining depletion of 2.3 million ounces was the main contributor to the change in Mineral Reserves.
