Presentation of Financial and Other Information
Gold Fields Limited (Gold Fields or the Company) is a South African company and, in fiscal 2021, 12%, 34%, 44% and 10% of Gold Fields’ operations, based on managed gold-equivalent production, were located in South Africa, Ghana (including the Asanko JV (as defined below)), Australia and Peru, respectively. The Gold Fields consolidated financial statements are presented in U.S. dollar which is the Group’s presentation currency. The Group’s annual and interim financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), and as prescribed by law (refer to the “Basis of preparation” section of the accounting policies to the consolidated financial statements).
Except as otherwise noted, the financial information included in this annual report has been prepared in accordance with IFRS and is presented in U.S. dollars, and for descriptions of critical accounting policies, refer to accounting policies under IFRS.
Rounding adjustments have been made in calculating some of the financial and operating information included in this annual report. As a result, numerical figures shown as total amounts in some tables may not be exact arithmetic aggregations of the figures that make up such total amounts.
For Gold Fields’ consolidated financial statements, unless otherwise stated, statement of financial position item amounts are translated from Rand and A$ to U.S. dollars at the exchange rate prevailing on the statement of financial position date for fiscal 2021 (Rand 15.94 per U.S.$1.00 and U.S.$0.73 per A$1.00 as of 31 December 2021), except for specific items included within shareholders’ equity and the statement of cash flows that are translated at the rate prevailing on the date the relevant transaction was entered into, and income statement item amounts are translated from Rand and A$ to U.S. dollars at the weighted average exchange rate for each period (Rand 14.79 per U.S.$1.00 and U.S.$0.75 per A$1.00 for fiscal 2021).
In this annual report, Gold Fields presents the financial items “all-in sustaining costs” (AISC), “all-in sustaining costs per ounce”, “all-in costs” (AIC), and “all-in costs per ounce”, which have been determined using industry standards promulgated by the World Gold Council (WGC) and are non-IFRS measures. The WGC standard was released by the WGC on 27 June 2013. Gold Fields voluntarily adopted and implemented these metrics as from the quarter ended June 2013. On 14 November 2018, the WGC published an update to its guidance note on the interpretation of all-in sustaining and all-in costs. The note provided additional clarity on what constitutes growth capital expenditure. Gold Fields has considered the new guidance note to ensure the interpretation of the guidelines is consistent with the additional guidance now available and adopted the updated guidance prospectively from 1 January 2019. An investor should not consider these items in isolation or as alternatives to cost of sales, profit before tax, profit for the year, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with IFRS. While the WGC provided definitions for the calculation of AISC and AIC, the calculation of AISC, AISC per ounce, AIC and AIC per ounce may vary significantly among gold mining companies, and by themselves do not necessarily provide a basis for comparison with other gold mining companies. See “—Additional Information on the Company—Glossary of Mining Terms—All-in sustaining costs” and “—Additional Information on the Company—Glossary of Mining Terms—All-in costs”. For the definitions and reconciliations of these non-IFRS measures to IFRS, see “—Annual Financial Report—Management’s Discussion and Analysis of the Financial Statements”.
Gold Fields also presents “adjusted free cash flow”, “net debt”, “adjusted free cash flow for LTIP purposes”, “adjusted free cash flow margin for LTIP purposes”, “adjusted EBITDA” and “normalised profit” in this annual report, which are non-IFRS measures. An investor should not consider these items in isolation or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities, cash and cash equivalents or any other measure presented in accordance with IFRS. Adjusted free cash flow is defined as net cash from operations less the South Deep Dividend, net capital expenditure (additions to property, plant and equipment less proceeds on disposal of property, plant and equipment), capital expenditure - working capital, contributions to environmental trust funds, payments of principal lease liabilities and redemption of Asanko preference shares, as per the consolidated statement of cash flows. Adjusted free cash flow for LTIP purposes is defined as revenue (excluding by-product revenue) less AIC adjusted for non-cash share-based payments, non-cash long-term employee benefits, exploration, feasibility and evaluation costs outside of existing operations, non-sustaining capital expenditure for growth projects only, realised gains or losses on revenue hedges, redemption of Asanko preference shares and taxation paid (excluding royalties). Adjusted free cash flow margin for LTIP purposes is defined as adjusted free cash flow divided by revenue adjusted for by product revenue. Net debt (excluding lease liabilities) is defined as total borrowings less cash and cash equivalents and net debt is defined as total borrowings plus lease liabilities less cash and cash equivalents. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as profit or loss for the year adjusted for interest, taxation, amortisation and depreciation and certain other costs. Normalised profit is defined as profit excluding gains and losses on foreign exchange, financial instruments and non-recurring items after taxation and non-controlling interest effect. The definition for the calculation of adjusted free cash flow, adjusted free cash flow for LTIP purposes, adjusted free cash flow margin for LTIP purposes, adjusted EBITDA and normalised profit may vary significantly between companies, and by themselves do not necessarily provide a basis for comparison with other companies.

Mining Terms”. For the definitions and reconciliations of these non-IFRS measures to IFRS, see “—Annual Financial Report—Management’s Discussion and Analysis of the Financial Statements”.
This annual report also contains data on Gold Fields’ Scope 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas emissions. Data for Scope 1 and 2 emissions relate to Gold Fields’ own activities and supplied heat, power, and cooling which are measured using data from its own systems and independently assured, as described in our 2021 Climate Change Report. Scope 3 emissions relate to other organisations’ emissions and are therefore subject to a range of uncertainties and challenges. At present Scope 3 data is not yet consistently available in many value chains and is calculated, collected, or estimated in different ways. Gold Fields’ Scope 3 emissions data is determined using the ISO 14064 part 1 standard. As value chain emissions data advances over time, Gold Fields expects to improve the quality of its Scope 3 data and data reporting.
Market Information
This annual report includes industry data about Gold Fields’ markets obtained from industry surveys, industry publications, market research and other publicly available third-party information. Industry surveys and industry publications generally state that the information they contain has been obtained from sources believed to be reliable but that the accuracy and completeness of such information is not guaranteed. Gold Fields and its advisers have not independently verified this data.
In addition, in many cases, statements in this annual report regarding the gold mining industry and Gold Fields’ position in that industry have been made based on internal surveys, industry forecasts and market research, as well as Gold Fields’ own experiences. While these statements are believed by Gold Fields to be reliable, they have not been independently verified.

This annual report contains descriptions of gold mining and the gold mining industry, including descriptions of geological formations and mining processes. In order to facilitate a better understanding of these descriptions, this annual report contains a glossary defining a number of technical and geological terms. See “—Additional Information on the Company—Glossary of Mining Terms”.
In this annual report, gold production figures are provided in troy ounces, which are referred to as “ounces” or “oz”, or in kilograms, which are referred as “kg”. Ore grades are provided in grams per metric tonne, which are referred to as “grams per tonne” or “g/t”. All references to “tonnes” or “t” in this annual report are to metric tonnes. All references to “gold” include gold and gold equivalent ounces, unless otherwise specified or where the context suggests otherwise. See “—Additional Information on the Company—Glossary of Mining Terms” for further information regarding units of measurement used in this annual report and a table providing rates of conversion between different units of measurement. AIC, net of by-product revenue, and AISC, net of by-product revenue, are calculated per ounce of gold sold, excluding gold equivalent ounces.

This annual report contains references to the “total recordable injury frequency rate” (TRIFR) at each Gold Fields operation—which was introduced in 2013. The TRIFR at each operation includes the total number of fatalities, lost time injuries, medically treated injuries (MTI) and restricted work injuries (RWI) per million man hours. A lost time injury (LTI) is a work-related injury resulting in the employee or contractor being unable to attend work for a period of one or more days after the day of the injury (i.e. the employee or contractor is unable to perform any of his/her duties). An MTI is a work-related injury sustained by an employee or contractor which does not incapacitate that employee and who, after having received medical treatment, is deemed fit to immediately resume his/her normal duties on the next calendar day, immediately following the treatment or re-treatment. An RWI is a work-related injury sustained by an employee or contractor which results in the employee or contractor being unable to perform one or more of their routine functions for a full working day from the day after the injury occurred, but the employee or contractor can still perform some of his/her duties.
In this annual report, “R” and “Rand” refer to the South African Rand and “SA cents” refers to subunits of the South African Rand, “$”, “U.S.$” and “U.S. dollars” refer to United States dollars, “U.S. cents” refers to subunits of the U.S. dollar, “A$” and “Australian dollars” refer to Australian dollars, “GH” refers to Ghana Cedi, “S/.” refers to the Peruvian Nuevo Sol and “CAD” refers to Canadian dollars.
In this annual report, except where otherwise noted, all production and operating statistics are based on attribution of 100% of Gold Fields’ total operations, which include production from the Tarkwa and Damang mines in Ghana and from the Cerro Corona mine in Peru, a portion of which is attributable to the non-controlling shareholders in those mines. In addition, production and operating statistics for Asanko (as defined below) are included on an attributable basis (based on Gold Fields’ 45% interest in Asanko). This annual report contains references to “gold equivalent ounces”, which are quantities of metals (such as copper) expressed as amounts of gold using the prevailing prices of gold and the other metals. To calculate this, the accepted total value of the metal based on its weight and value is divided by the accepted value of one troy ounce of gold.
