ASX Release

Resource Generation launches A$62.6 million equity capital raising

Resource Generation Limited (Resource Generation or the Company) is pleased to
announce that it is seeking to raise A$62.6 million (before costs) through a 1 for 1 pro-
rata non-renounceable entitlement offer of 284,698,002 fully paid ordinary shares (New
Shares) at A$0.22 per share (Entitlement Offer). The Entitlement Offer is not
underwritten. However, commitments have been received from three independent parties
that are willing to take up to approximately 80% of the issue or any available shortfall.
The three parties are:
    -Barsington Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Noble Group Limited (an
        existing shareholder);
    -Valu Investments Pte. Ltd (Valu), a special purpose vehicle which will be jointly
        owned by Mr Jaimin Vyas, who is an entrepreneur, investor and project developer
        in the infrastructure sector, and IL&FS Energy Development Company Limited
        (?IEDCL?) , an Indian company which specialises in the energy infrastructure
        space (refer below re further arrangements with Valu); and
    -Altius Investment Holdings (Proprietary) Limited, a South African black
        economically empowered investment company focused on the food, mining and
        water sectors and also representing other large institutional investors.

Proceeds from the Entitlement Offer will be used primarily to commence major
construction to proceed towards production at the Boikarabelo mine in the Waterberg
region of South Africa, and for working capital. The commencement of major
construction at Boikarabelo will be a significant milestone for Resource Generation, and
will allow the Company to reduce the risk of the development of the project. The
Company is also negotiating the offer of equipment finance, coal handling and
preparation plant) (CHPP) funding alternatives and is in discussions with ten banks with
a view to augmenting the debt facility provided through the Noble Group Limited
(Noble), announced to the market on 2 April 2013.

BBY Limited is acting as broker to the issue. The directors of the Company reserve the
right to place the shortfall shares at their discretion, which will include ensuring no party
obtains a position of control.

Should the Entitlement Offer not achieve full subscription or take up of the shortfall, the
Company will prioritise the expenditure in areas which provide maximum leverage in de-
risking completion. For example, expenditure on the CHPP would be deferred on the
basis that leveraged finance is under consideration for all or part of the CHPP.

As announced earlier today, Noble Group Limited has agreed to lend US$55.3 million for
the construction of the 38 kilometre rail link from the Boikarabelo mine to the existing
Transnet Freight Rail network.
