Keaton Energy Holdings Limited (Keaton Energy) has declared a 24% increase in   
the coal reserve of its 74%-held, Mpumalanga-based Vanggatfontein Project to    
32.2 million tonnes - 22.3 million tonnes in the proved category and 9.9        
million tonnes in the probable category.                                        
The declaration is contained in an updated SAMREC-compliant East Resource       
Block: Coal Reserve and Resource Statement released by the company following    
further exploration drilling on the project and completion of a feasibility     
update report.

Keaton Energy Managing Director Paul Miller said: "With the 5-Seam plant        
currently being commissioned, 5-Seam coal being produced from the open pit and  
a run-of-mine stockpile in place, the Vanggatfontein project is well under      
way.  The 2 & 4-Seam plant is under construction with first deliveries to       
Eskom expected in the second quarter of 2011.  We are pleased that this         
updated reserve statement confirms the project`s robustness, and firmly         
supports our current development strategy."
