KEATON ENERGY ANNOUNCES FOURTH COAL MINING PROJECT
Keaton Energy has announced its intention to proceed with its fourth coal mining
project, Leeuwfontein, 35 kilometres south of Middelburg in South Africa`s
Amalahle Exploration (Pty) Limited, a 74%-held subsidiary of Keaton Energy, was
awarded four prospecting rights over six discrete properties totalling 1 597
hectares in the Ermelo coal field in April 2008.
Keaton Energy Managing Director Paul Miller said: "Following completion of a 69-
hole drilling programme on the properties in November 2008 a SAMREC-compliant
coal resource has now been declared for the Leeuwfontein Project.
"Leeuwfontein is relatively small, covering some nine hectares, and contains a
coal resource of 922 000 mineable in situ tonnes in the measured category.
"It will become the second of Keaton Energy`s two smaller, short-life projects,
after our Klip Colliery.
Work has begun on an application for a mining right over Leeuwfontein, with a
view to receiving regulatory approvals for open pit mining in the second half of
2010", Miller said.
Note: the detailed Leeuwfontein Project May 2009 resource statement is available
