INTERDICT GRANTED IN FAVOUR OF WESCOAL                                          
Shareholders are referred to the announcement dated 7 July 2011 that Wescoal    
launched an urgent application with the High Court during March 2011 to         
interdict Sutha Civils (Pty) Ltd ("Sutha") from continuing to make              
unsubstantiated and derogatory statements in respect of Wescoal and Wescoal     
Mining (Pty) Ltd ("Wescoal Mining") and that an interim order was granted.      
Shareholders are advised that the South Gauteng High Court has today granted an 
order in favour of Wescoal and Wescoal Mining against Sutha, Nico Swart and     
Wimpie Badenhorst ("the three respondents"). The three respondents are          
interdicted from publishing injurious and/or false statements of and concerning 
Wescoal and/or Wescoal Mining, including but not limited to statements to the   
effect that:                                                                    
-    either of the Wescoal companies is unable to pay its debts;                
-    the Khanyisa Colliery has no coal;                                         
-    either Wescoal or Wescoal Mining has falsely blamed the rain for its lack  
    of production at the Khanyisa Colliery; and                                 
-    the coal reserves at the Khanyisa Colliery have been fraudulently          
overstated by either Wescoal and/or Wescoal Mining.                         
The Court inter alia found that Sutha`s actions and statements were             
unsubstantiated, malicious, groundless and devoid of truth, and that the        
unlawful conduct of Chris Broodryk clearly indicated that all Sutha wanted to do
was extricate payment from Wescoal.                                             
Wescoal and Wescoal Mining have been directed by the Court to institute their   
action for final relief and damages against the three respondents within 30 days
from today.                                                                     
Further comments from the Chief Executive Officer of Wescoal are available on   
Wescoal`s website www.wescoal.com. The judgement and order will be placed on the
website as soon as they are available.                                          
28 July 2011
