NOTICE TO SHAREHOLDERS


July 11, 2012 - Queensland, Australia




11 July 2012

NOTICE TO SHAREHOLDERS HOLDING 1% OR MORE OF ST BARBARA OR ALLIED GOLD
SHARES

Further to the announcement of St Barbara's offer to acquire Allied
Gold Mining Plc on 29 June 2012, both companies wish to draw certain
disclosure requirements to the attention of their shareholders holding
(directly or indirectly) 1% or more of St Barbara's or Allied Gold's
issued shares.

It is intended that the offer be implemented by way of a court
sanctioned scheme of arrangement under UK law, including the UK City
Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "UK Code"), administered by the UK
Panel on Takeovers and Mergers (the "UK Takeover Panel").

Rule 8.3 of the UK Code requires that "any person who is (or as a
result of any dealing becomes) interested (directly or indirectly) in
1% or more of any class of relevant securities of any party to the
offer must make a public Dealing Disclosure if he deals in any relevant
securities of any party to the offer during an offer period." St
Barbara and Allied Gold shares are relevant securities for the purposes
of the offer.

Further information about the UK Takeover Panel's disclosure regime is
available at www.thetakeoverpanel.org.uk/disclosure. If you have any
questions, please contact the UK Takeover Panel's Market Surveillance
Unit on +44(0)20 7638 0129.

For reference, 1% of St Barbara's total 324,620,389 shares on issue
today is 3,246,204 shares (rounded up to the nearest whole share), and
1% of Allied Gold's total 204,318,414 shares on issued today is
2,043,184 shares (rounded to the nearest whole share).
