for the three months ended 30 September 2014
Resource Generation is developing its Boikarabelo coal mine in the Waterberg region
of South Africa, which accounts for 40% of the country?s remaining coal resources.
There are probable reserves of 744.8* million tonnes of coal on 35% of the tenements
under the company?s control (refer ASX announcement dated 16 December 2010).
Stage 1 of the mine development targets saleable coal production of 6 million tonnes
Boikarabelo mine construction
Construction of the mine?s infrastructure continued during the quarter, while debt funding
was being finalised, in order to shorten the overall construction time. This included:
- construction camp for up to 1,320 persons;
- rail link bridges;
- power supply infrastructure;
- construction office complex;
- rail network stabilisation facility (NSF);
- earthworks relating to the construction offices, power supply and the NSF;
- permanent water supply infrastructure; and
- 13 kilometres of water pipeline adjacent to public roads.
At the construction camp, services, kitchen and dining facilities have been installed for 1,320
people. Accommodation units have been installed to allow 400 persons to take up immediate
Earthworks for the rail link, access roads and provincial roads were suspended early in the
quarter, following the main earthworks contractor being placed into liquidation. Its sub-
contractor for the construction of bridges under and over the rail line has since been
contracted directly and is on target to complete the first three bridges by the end of the
Power supply for the construction process has been connected to the main locations. During
the quarter, a contract was signed with EHL Energy (Pty) Limited to construct 132kv power
transmission lines, a substation and switch room for power supply for the mining operation.
Construction, which will be funded by a deferred payment facility, commenced in September
and is scheduled for completion by October 2015.
The terrace for the construction offices was completed during the quarter. Services are being
installed and office accommodation units are being moved on to site in the current quarter.
The earthworks for the intersection of the rail link to the main line commenced during the
quarter. Once completed, the rail turnouts and associated signalling will be installed. The
design of this intersection is complex, with multiple lines to allow the rearrangement of trains
without delays or stoppages. The rail network stabilisation facility consists of two siding
lines, one loop line and a main line by-pass and eventually will be capable of holding trains
with up to 100 wagons.

Quarterly Report to 30 September 2014
Permanent water supply infrastructure continued to be installed during the quarter, including
holding tanks and pumping facilities, initially from the main borehole on Zeekoevley. This
infrastructure will be used during the construction of the mine and later will become one of
the main water sources for mine operations.
The Marapong effluent treatment facility in Lephalale, and associated pipeline to
Boikarabelo, is an integral part of the mine?s social and labour plan. During the quarter, a
contract was signed with Ceenex (Pty) Limited to undertake EPCM services for the
construction of the treatment plant, the 58 kilometre pipeline to Boikarabelo and associated
pump infrastructure. Work commenced during the quarter with the completion of two main
road underpasses for the pipeline and initial construction of a 13 kilometre section of the
pipeline adjacent to a main road.
All regulatory consents have been received, all necessary land has been acquired and rail
haulage and port access contracts sufficient for the mine?s stage 1 production have been
Coal handling and preparation plant (CHPP)
During the quarter, an engineering, procurement and supply contract was signed with
FLSmidth Roymec (Pty) Limited, the South African black economic empowerment
subsidiary of FLSmidth & Co, the leading supplier of complete plants, equipment and
services for the global minerals industry. Commencement of fabrication and supply is
conditional on completion of debt funding. Meanwhile all detailed designs and specifications
have been completed. In early October, a construction management contract was also signed
with FLSmidth to manage the on-site mechanical and electrical installations for the CHPP.
During the quarter, Resource Generation signed a loan facility of up to US$113 million for
the full cost of the mobile equipment fleet with Komatsu Financial Limited Partnership. The
term is five years from the first utilisation date. There are a number of conditions precedent
for the loan including signing the sale agreement for the equipment, registration of security
over the equipment and securing the balance of the debt required to complete project
construction. Resource Generation will be purchasing the equipment from Komatsu Southern
Africa Pty Ltd and the contract for that is close to completion.
Debt funding status
Debt funding of US$400 million is being sought to fund the construction of all site
infrastructure and the rail link, including a contingency. Project funding negotiations are still
underway with banks and others to provide final funding offers. Noble Group?s loans, which
have been announced previously may form part of a consortium?s debt finance, which is
expected to have export credit agency support.
Three long-term export offtake contracts have been entered into with CESC, Valu
Investments and Noble Group. These contracts underwrite most of the forecast revenue from
Boikarabelo?s stage 1 production and a substantial portion of stage 2 production.
A domestic offtake contract for 3.0 million tonnes per annum of middlings coal has been
entered into with Noble Group for the first eight years of production.
The company?s current export coal contracts (in million tonnes per annum) are as follows:
Stage 1 Stage 2
Y1-Y3 Y4-Y7 Y8 Y9-12 Y13-14 Y15-20 Y21-35 Y36-Y38
CESC 1.0 2.0 4.0 4.0 4.0 4.0 4.0 4.0
Noble 0.5 0.5 0.5 1.5 2.0 2.5 2.5
Valu 1.0 1.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0
Total 2.5 3.5 6.5 7.5 8.0 8.5 6.5 4.0
Note. If, as expected, stage 2 production commences earlier, both CESC and Valu tonnages will increase
earlier by 1.0 mtpa.
The coal mining rights and exploration tenements held at the end of the quarter were as
follows in South Africa (Waterberg):
- MPT15/2012 MR (74%)
- PR720/2007 (74%)
- PR678/2007 (74%)
The company has no interest in farm-in or farm-out agreements.
