RESTRUCTURING OF BUFFALO?S DUNDEE OPERATIONS
TORONTO, ONTARIO ? March 11, 2015: Buffalo Coal Corp. (TSX: BUF; JSE: BUC) (?Buffalo? or ?the
Company?) advises shareholders that the Company has commenced with implementation of the
restructuring of its operational and cost structures at its Dundee operations, as announced on
December 22, 2014.

The consultation process in South Africa with organised labour and relevant stakeholders has been
completed as required in terms of section 189A of the South African Labour Relations Act, and as a
consequence, the Company has commenced with the retrenchments of mine employees. As a result,
the Company?s workforce will be reduced by approximately 25% once implementation of this process
has been completed.

Further to the announcement on February 2, 2015, shareholders are advised that the process pertaining
to closing of the additional US$4 million loan facility from Resource Capital Fund V L.P. is ongoing. A
further press release will be disseminated upon closing of the loan facility.
