RESERVES UPGRADED                                                               
Resgen has now expanded the detailed mine plan at its proposed Boikarabelo mine 
in the Waterberg region of South Africa, following additional drilling          
undertaken earlier this year on the Kalkpan tenement.                           
The completion of the expanded mine plan has enabled the reserves to be         
upgraded. Boikarabelo now has probable reserves of 744.8 million tonnes, an     
increase of 108.8 million tonnes. The area covered by this reserve amounts to   
only 35% of the resource bearing tenements.                                     
Paul Jury, managing director of Resource Generation, said: `These results are   
further confirmation of the potential of our Boikarabelo mine to supply large   
quantities of thermal coal to both the export and domestic thermal coal markets,
over several decades.  Together with our 20 year contracts to supply coal to    
India`s CESC power utility and Bhushan Steel Limited, this reserve upgrade      
assists in underwriting revenues for our project finance raising to complete the
development.`
