2. BASIS OF PREPARATION
The summarised group financial statements are prepared in accordance with the requirements of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements for abridged reports, and the requirements of the Companies Act applicable to summary financial statements. The Listings Requirements require abridged reports to be prepared in accordance with the framework concepts and the measurement and recognition requirements of International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS)" and the SAICA Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee and Financial Pronouncements as issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council and to also, as a minimum, contain the information required by IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting.

The accounting policies have been applied consistently by all group entities.
4. INDEPENDENT AUDIT BY THE AUDITOR
These summarised group financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2015 have been extracted from the complete set of annual financial statements on which the auditors, KPMG Inc., have expressed an unqualified audit opinion, dated 18 March 2016.

R&E has entered into an agreement for the sale of a certain prospecting right for R5.9 million with a nil carrying value to third parties.
