JOHANNESBURG, Aug. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Gold Fields Limited (Gold Fields) (JSE,NYSE: GFI ) advises that headline earnings per share for the six months ended 30 June 2022 (H1 2022) are expected to range from US$0.56-0.60 per share (US$0.11-0.15 per share higher), which is 24% to 33% higher than the headline earnings of US$0.45 per share reported for the six months ended 30 June 2021 (H1 2021). The increase in headline earnings is driven by higher production and gold price, partially offset by higher costs.

Normalised earnings per share for H1 2022 are expected to range from US$0.54-0.58 per share (US$0.05-0.09 per share higher), which is 10% to 18% higher than the normalised earnings of US$0.49 per share reported for H1 2021.

All-in sustaining costs (AISC) are expected to be US$1,146/oz (Q1 2022: US$1,150/oz).
H1 2022 operational performance Attributable gold equivalent production for H1 2022 is expected to be 1,201koz, a 9% increase YoY (H1 2021: 1,104koz).
AIC for H1 2022 is expected to be US$1,352/oz, higher than H1 2021 (US$1,274/oz), a 6% increase YoY, as a result of an increase in operating costs driven by mining inflation and the increased project capex at Salares Norte. AISC for H1 2022 is expected to be US$1,148/oz (H1 2021: US$1,093/ oz), a 5% increase YoY.
