Publication of Circular and Notice of General Meeting concerning the increase of Anglo American’s interest in De Beers

Anglo American plc ("Anglo American") announces that, further to its announcement dated 4 November 2011, a General Meeting will be held on Friday, 6 January 2012 at 11.00am at The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Broad Sanctuary, Westminster, London SW1P 3EE.

Anglo American plc ("Anglo American") announces that, further to its announcement dated 4 November 2011, a General Meeting will be held on Friday, 6 January 2012 at 11.00am at The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Broad Sanctuary, Westminster, London SW1P 3EE, at which approval will be sought from Anglo American's shareholders for the proposed acquisition of a further interest of up to 40% in DB Investments and De Beers sa ("De Beers") from CHL Holdings Limited ("CHL") and Centhold International Limited ("CIL"), potentially increasing Anglo American's interest in De Beers to up to 85%. The proposed acquisition is categorised as a related party transaction under the UK Listing Authority's Listing Rules, as CHL and CIL are ultimately controlled through intermediary companies by trusts of which Mr. N.F. Oppenheimer is a potential discretionary beneficiary and Mr. N.F. Oppenheimer has been a director of Anglo American within the last 12 months. The transaction therefore requires Anglo American shareholder approval.

The transaction is also subject to regulatory and government approvals and is expected to close in the second half of 2012.

A circular to Anglo American's shareholders in respect of the related party transaction, with a notice of General Meeting (which is incorporated into the circular), has been published today and is available on our website at www.angloamerican.com.

A copy of the above circular has been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at http://www.hemscott.com/nsm.do.
