Directors' report

The Board of Directors present their report on the consolidated entity (referred to hereafter as the Group) consisting of Resource
Generation Limited (Resgen or the Company) and the entities it controlled for the half year ended 31 December 2016.

1. Directors

The following persons were Directors of Resource Generation Limited at the date of this report:
                                                               Length of service
Mr D Gately           Chairman                                    1.25 years
Mr L Xate             Deputy Chairman                             1.25 years
Mr R Croll            Non-Executive Director                      1.25 years
MrC Gilligan          Non-Executive Director                      1.25 years
Mr L Molotsane        Non-Executive Director                      1.25 years
Dr K Sebati           Non-Executive Director                      1.25 years


2. Principal activities

During the half year the principal continuing activities of the Group consisted of the development of the Boikarabelo Coal Mine in the
Waterberg region of South Africa .

3. Review of operations

During the half year ended 31 December 2016 the Group recorded a net loss of $1.2 million (2015: $8.1 million loss). The reduction
in the net loss from the comparative period was principally due to an appreciation in ZAR against the US$ foreign exchange rate.
The net loss for the half year to 31 December 2016 of $1.2 million includes administrative and corporate expenses of $2.0 million,
employee expenses of $1.4 million and an unrealised foreign exchange gain of $2.2 million.


Negotiations with various parties including a club of potential financiers to provide project finance for the construction of the
Boikarabelo Coal Mine continued during the period. Commercial terms were agreed with the club of financiers in July 2016.
Satisfactory progress towards financial close is being made but is slow due to the complexities associated with project finance . It is
proposed that if this facility proceeds, the existing loan from Noble Group will become part of the above facility .


Expectations are that the project finance will provide all required remaining funding for the mine construction. Consequently , if the
proposed facility is made available, the Company does not envisage the need for an associated equity raising.


While this protracted process is on-going, the Company continues to explore alternate debt funding arrangements to maximise the
chance of finalising the successful development of the Boikarabelo Coal Mine.


Work continued at the Boikarabelo Coal Mine during the last six months of the year in order to ensure project readiness for the
mobilisation of the EPC contractors. In parallel, significant progress has been made towards completion of the material contracts
with inter alia Transnet Freight Rail (logistics), Sedgman (CHPP and O&M contracts) and Stefanutti Stock Mining Services (mining
contract) .All these contracts are conditions precedent to financial close of funding with the Financing Syndicate. Completion of the
oroiect fundina continues to be the Comoanv's hiahest orioritv.




                                                                     Page 2
RESOURCE GENERATION LIMITED

Directors' report (continued)
The Coal Resources and Coal Reserves estimates for Boikarabelo Coal Mine have been updated at 31 December 2016 in
accordance with the Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves . This update of
the Coal Resources and Coal Reserves estimates relate specifically to the Ledjadja #1 and Ledjadja #3 project areas where an
optimised mine design has now been completed.These two project areas make up 27% of Resgen's Coal Resources and 46% of
Resgen's Coal Reserves.


Resgen has previously secured export offtake contracts and has developed a dual export/domestic business model intending to
service both export customers and domestic power stations . This model has resulted in a meaningful increase in the Net Present
Value and Internal Rate of Return of the project. The previously announced 2010 estimated Coal Resources and Coal Reserves was
based on a single low-quality product for sale to domestic power stations .


4. Dividends

No dividends were paid or proposed to be paid to members during the financial half year (2015: nil).

5. Events occurring after the balance sheet date

An agreement for additional funding of US$8.4 million from Noble was signed on 14 March 2017. The first drawdown is expected to
be before the end of March 2017 and repayments under the facility have been deferred until September 2017.



6. Auditor's independence declaration

A copy of the auditor's independence declaration as required under Section 307C of the Corporations Act 2001 is set out on page 4.



7. Rounding of amounts

The Company is a company of the kind referred to in ASIC Corporations (Rounding in Financials/Directors' Reports) Instrument
2016/191, dated 24 March 2016, and in accordance with that Corporations Instrument amounts in the Directors' report and the half
year financial report are rounded off to the nearest thousand dollars , unless otherwise indicated .




This report is made in accordance with a resolution of the Directors , pursuant to Section 306(3) of the Corporations Act 2001.

 interim reporting period in accordance with the continuous disclosure requirements of the Corporations Act 2001 and the ASX Listing Rules.

 The interim financialreport has been prepared on the basis of historicalcost except for the revaluation of certain financial instruments . Cost is based on
 the fair values of consideration given in exchange for assets.All amounts are presented in Australian Dollars, unless otherwise noted.

 Disclosure surrounding adoption of new or revised Standards

 The Group has adopted all of the new and revised Standards and Interpretations issued by the Australian Accounting Standards Board (AASB) that are
 relevant to their operations and effective for the current half-year.

'AASB 2015-1 Annual Improvements to Australian Accounting Standards 2012-2014 Cycle

 the interim financial report for the half year ended 31 December 2016.

 (b) Significant accounting policies

 The accounting policies and methods of computation adopted in the preparation of the interim financial report are consistent with those adopted and
 disclosed in the Company's annual financial report for the year ended 30 June 2016.These accounting policies are consistent with Australian Accounting
 Standards and with International Financial Reporting Standards.


 The interim financial repor1 comprises the financial statements of Resource Generation Limited and its subsidiaries as at 31 December 2016 ('the
 Consolidated Entity").


 Going concern


 The interim financial report has been prepared on the going concern basis which presumes the realisation of assets and the discharge of liabilities in the
 normal course of business for the foreseeable future.

 As at 31 December 2016,the Group had net current liabilities of $9.9 million (30 June 2016: $1.2 million net current assets) , made a loss for the half year
 of $1.2 million (30 June 2016: $7.7 million for the year) and recorded net cash outflows from operating and investing activities of $6.5 million (30 June
 2016:$14 .6 million for the year). The Group has a cash balance at 31 December 2016 of $4.5 million (30 June 2016:$12.0 million).




                                                                                                    Page 9

Notes to the condensed consolidated financial statements
For the half year ended 31 December 2016

 .
1 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Going concern (continued)

In concluding that the going concern basis is appropriate, a cash flow forecast was prepared for the 2017 calendar year. The forecast assumes the
receipt of additional funding from Noble amounting to US$8.4 million, which is an extension of the existing US$20 million working capital facility . An
agreement for the additional funding has been signed with Noble, with the first tranche expected to be drawn down before the end of March 2017 and
subsequent funding up to US$8.4 million made available until September 2017,when repayments are due to commence.


In addition, the Group's ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on securing project funding for the Boikarabelo Coal Mine.The Directors
continue to pursue a number of project funding options. Whilst the Directors are continuing to work towards achieving financial dose for project funding
by the end of June 2017, as there are a number of conditions to be satisfied before this is achieved,precise times are impossible to predict with certainty.
Assuming financial close occurs at the end of June 2017, construction of the mine would commence immediately thereafter with completion and first
saleable coal production scheduled for the third quarter of 2019.


On the above basis,the Directors believe the Group is a going concern and will be able to pay its debts as and when they fall due and payable.


Notwithstanding this, should the Group not receive the project funding referred to above, there are material uncertainties as to whether the Group will be
able to continue as a going concern and therefore whether it will realise its assets and extinguish its liabilities in the normal course of business and at the
amounts stated in the interim financial report.


The interim financial report does not include adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts nor to the amounts
and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Group not continue as a going concern.


(c) Income Tax


The Directors have not recognised any deferred tax assets in relation to carry forward unused tax losses. Given the history of operating losses,the
Directors have determined that the most appropriate time to recognise deferred tax assets from carry forward unused tax losses is when the mine
commences production.

3.CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES AND JUDGEMENTS

Restatement of accounts

The comparative 31 December 2015 numbers have been restated in respect of the accounting for foreign exchange on acquisition adjustments as
reported in the statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income and statement of changes in equity.The Group previously acquired interests
in South African subsidiaries that held exploration licences for the Boikarabelo Coal Mine project. The difference between the net assets of the
subsidiaries acquired and the purchase consideration was recorded as an exploration asset, subsequently reclassified to mining tenements and mining
development assets. Such differences should be treated as assets of the foreign operation and therefore foreign exchange differences arising on

          Independent Auditor's Review Report
    to the members of Resource Generation Limited
Report on the Half-Year Financial Report

We have reviewed the accompany ing half-year financial report of Resource Generation Limited,
which comprises the condensed statement of financial position as at 3 I December 2016, and th e
condensed statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income, the condensed statem ent of
cash flows and the condensed statement of changes in equity for the half-year ended on that date,
notes compr ising a summary of si gnificant accountin g policies and other explanat ory information,
and the directors' declaration of th e consolidated entity compr ising the company and the entiti es it
controlled at the end of the half-year or from tim e to time during th e half-year as set out on pa ges 5
to 13.

Directors' Responsibility for the Half-Year Financial Repor t

The directors of the compan y are respon s ible for the preparation of the half-yea r financial report
that gi ves a true and fair view in accordance with Au stralian Accountin g Standards an d th e
Corporations Act 2001 and for such interna l control as the directors determ ine is necessa ry to
enable the pr eparation of the half-year financial report that gives a true and fa i r v iew and is free
from mat erial misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor 's Responsibility

Ou r respon sibility is to express a conclu sion on the half-year financial report based on our rev iew.
We conducted our review in accordan ce with Auditin g Standard on Revi ew Engagem ents ASRE
2410 Review of a Financial Report Performed by the Independ ent Auditor of the Entity, in order to state
whether, on the basis of the procedures described, we have become aware of any matter that makes
us believe that the ha lf-year financia l report is not in accordance with the Corporations Ac t 2001
includin g: giv ing a true and fa ir v iew of the consol idated entity 's financial position as at 31 Decem
ber 201 5 and its performan ce for the half-year ended on that date; and complying with Accountin
g Standard AASB 1 34 Interim Financial Reporting and th e Corporations Regulations 2001. As th e
auditor of Resour ce Gen eration L imited, ASRE 2410 requ ires that we comply w ith th e ethica l
requir ements relevant to the audit of the annu al financial report.

A review of a half-year financial report consists of making enquiries, primarily of persons
responsible for financial and accountin g matters, and apply ing analytica l and other review
procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accorda nce with
Australian Aud iting Standard s and consequently does not enable us to obta in assurance that we
would become aware of all significant matters that mi ght be identified in an audit. Accord ingly,
we do not expr ess an audit opinion .

Auditor's Independence Declaration

In conducting our review, we have complied with the ind ependence requirements of the
Corporations Act 2001 . We confirm that the independence declaration requir ed by th e
Corporations Act 2001, whi ch has been given to the directors of Resource Generati on Limited,
wou ld be in the same terms if gi ven to the directors as at the time of this auditor 's review report.

Conclusion

Based on ou r review, wh ich is not an audit, we have not become aware of any matter that makes us
believe that the half-year financi al report of Resource Gen eration Limited i s not in accordanc e
w ith the Corporations Act 2001, including:

(a) givin g a true and fair view of the consolidated entity 's financ ial position as at 3 1 December
    20 16 and of its perform ance for the half-year ended on that date; and

(b) comply ing with Accounting Standard AASB 134 Interim Financial Reporting and the
     Corporations Regulations 2001.


Material Uncertainty Related to Going Concern

We draw attention to Note l(b) in the half-year financial report wh ich indicates that the consolidated
entity incurred a loss of$1.2 million (30 June 20 1 6:$7.7 million) and used net cash in operating
and invest in g acti v ities of $6.5 million (30 June 2016: $ 14.6 mill ion) during the hal f- year ended
31 December 2016. These conditions, along with oth er matters as set out in Note l(b), indicate the
existence of a material un certainty that may cast significant doubt about the ability of the
consolidated entity to continu e as a going concern. Our conclu sion is n ot m od ified in respect of this
matter.
