PROSPECTING RIGHTS GRANTED FOR KROMKRANS                                        
SACMH is pleased to announce that it has been granted prospecting rights for    
Kromkrans, a property situated in Ermelo, Mpumalanga, some 30km north of the    
company`s Umlabu mine.                                                          
Prospecting rights have been awarded over portions 3, 47, 56 and the remaining  
extent of the farm Kromkrans 208 IS, in terms of Section 17 (1) of the Mineral  
and Petroleum Resources Development Act 2002 (Act No 28 of 2002). The property  
measures 561 hectares and is adjacent to Naudesbank which is owned by BHP       
Billiton and where mining is planned to commence before year end.               
SACMH has finalised its exploration plans for the Kromkrans property and        
exploration is expected to commence later this month. Test drilling results are 
anticipated in about three months. Gemecs (Pty) Ltd has been appointed to       
develop the geological model.                                                   
Securing the prospecting rights is in line with SACMH`s overall strategy to grow
the company`s production and become an efficient coal producer.                 
Karl Gribnitz, Chief Executive of SACMH, commented:                             
"Exploration is another leg to our organic growth strategy.  The granting of the
prospecting rights over Kromkrans is an important and exciting development,     
especially due to its proximity to the Umlabu mine and as SACMH is embarking on 
exploration for the first time."
