TORONTO, ONTARIO ? December 22, 2014: Buffalo Coal Corp. (TSX: BUF; JSE: BUC)
(?Buffalo? or ?the Company?) advises shareholders that the Company is undertaking a review
of the operational and cost structures at its Dundee operations. Despite the restructuring
initiatives which have been implemented throughout the group during 2013 and 2014, current
market conditions and operational performance have necessitated further restructuring in order
to improve operating efficiencies and return to profitability, thereby ensuring that Buffalo remains
sustainable into the future.

In terms of the proposed restructuring, a consultation process has commenced in South Africa
with organised labour and relevant stakeholders, as required in terms of section 189A of the
South African Labour Relations Act, and details on the outcome of this process will be
announced at the appropriate time.
