Firestone requested an extension to its current voluntary suspension in the trading of its securities.



In accordance with ASX Listing Rule 17.2, the Company advises that:

a. as announced on 17 September 2015 (Announcement), the Company and its parent company The Waterberg Coal Company Ltd. (WCC) entered into a non-binding term sheet with Sibanye Gold Ltd. (Sibanye) whereby, inter alia, Sibanye had agreed terms with Standard Bank of South Africa (SBSA), as facility agent, to acquire WCC?s existing funding facility held by SBSA (Facility);

b. as per the Announcement, the transaction contemplated with Sibanye was originally expected to be completed by end of November 2015, then revised to the end of February 2016.

c. a Company market release dated 25 February 2016 advised that Sibanye had, on 24 February 2016, submitted a new offer to WCC which was materially different from the equity based transaction, as originally contemplated, to one whereby Sibanye proposed to acquire only the assets of the Waterberg Coal Project. This offer was withdrawn by Sibanye when WCC was unable to give due consideration within the approximately 24 hours turn around time stipulated.

d. on 10 March the Company advised that it and WCC were in negotiations with South African company Villora Ltd. to assist in re-capitalisation of the Company?s balance sheet including, inter alia, a potential transaction for acquisition of the WCC convertible note facility held by SBSA (Replacement Funding).

e. the Replacement Funding represents a significant transaction and the final terms of the proposal will impact both WCC?s and the Company's ability to carry out its future objectives;

f. the Company is of the view that re-instatement of trading for its securities at this time is likely to be materially prejudicial to WCC?s and its ability to successfully complete the complex funding transaction contemplated which is critical to the Company?s financial viability;

g. it expects the voluntary suspension to remain in place until the earlier of:

i. the date that it has made an announcement in respect of the proposed Replacement Funding arrangement; and

ii. commencement of trade on Tuesday, 24 May 2016;

h. it is not aware of any reason why the securities should not be suspended; and

i. is not aware of any other information necessary to inform the market about the suspension.

The board of Firestone Energy (company) is pleased to advise that the Waterberg Coal Project Joint Venture Partners, through Sekoko Coal (Pty) Ltd. (Sekoko), have now entered into an agreement with the Lephalale Municipal Council (LMC) to take over the management and operation of the Paarl Waste Water Treatment Facility (the Facility) for the purposes of supplying water to the Waterberg Coal Projects (WCP).



In its September 2014 Quarterly Activities Report the company advised that the WCP joint venture partners had engaged with LMC in respect of a proposal for taking over the management and operation responsibility for the Facility so as to ensure the long term availability of treated water for utilisation in the proposed project development and operations.



The agreement entitles, but does not oblige, Sekoko, on behalf of the WCP, to access treated water for 30 years with an option to renew the agreement for a further term.



The Facility has a treatment capacity of 10 million litres per day, or 3.64 million cubic metres per annum and will provide the WCP with sufficient water not only for its proposed Export Project development, but also Stage 1 of its proposed IPP development, which is currently under technical and economic assessment.



Securing this water agreement is a very significant and necessary step towards the development of the WCP which the joint venture partners are targeting a project start up for the Export Project towards the end of Q4 of 2015.

(Official Notice)
The Panel has made a declaration of unacceptable circumstances (Annexure A) and final orders (Annexure B) in relation to an application dated 18 April 2013 by Firestone in relation to its affairs (see TP13/10).



Background

Firestone has a right to a 60% participation interest in the Waterberg coal project in South Africa. On 17 December 2012, The Waterberg Coal Company Ltd. (formerly known as Range River Gold Ltd.) announced an off-market scrip bid for Firestone.



On 30 January 2013, Waterberg issued its bidder's statement, which included a statement that "[Firestone] shareholders will have exposure to a 70% interest in the Waterberg Project (whereas currently [Firestone] holds a 60% interest)." On 27 March 2013, Waterberg increased the bid consideration to 1.25:20 (post consolidation) and declared the offer unconditional. Also on 27 March 2013, Waterberg's shareholders approved (among other things) the acquisition of 46.88% of Waterberg by Haworth Finance Ltd.



Declaration

The original and supplementary bidder?s statements are deficient, in that they do not:

*adequately identify the lenders under the convertible financing facility between Waterberg and Standard Bank of South Africa and the facility's potential impact on Waterberg's capital structure and

*adequately inform Firestone shareholders of their exposure to the Waterberg coal project, given the contemplated capital structure of Waterberg.



The Panel did not consider it against the public interest to make the declaration, and in making it had regard to the matters in s657A(3).



The Panel declined to make a declaration in relation to the other aspects of the application.



Orders

The Panel has made orders that Waterberg dispatch a supplementary bidder's statement in a form approved by the Panel, provide Firestone shareholders who have accepted the offer with a withdrawal right and extend its offer until at least 7 days after the conclusion of the withdrawal right.



The Panel will refer the matter of the ownership and control of certain of the Haworth trust beneficiaries to ASIC for investigation.

The second supplementary bidders statement received from RNG has addressed a few of the reasons above being the proposed listing on the JSE AltX secondary board, removal of conditions and increasing value to shareholders by revising the consideration amount to be 1.25 pre-consolidation RNG shares for every 2 FSE shares. The consideration however remains in RNG shares, which the Firestone Board believes is inadequate. Furthermore, FSE believes that the JSE provides better access to capital, more corporate credibility and better liquidity for shareholders than being listed on the AltX.



The Firestone Board reaffirms its recommendation that FSE shareholders REJECT the Offer. Shareholders should do nothing in relation to any documents received from RNG. All Firestone announcements are available on the Company's website on www.firestoneenergy.com.au and via www.asx.com.au. Shareholders can also receive further information on the Offer by calling the Firestone shareholder information line on: 1800 643 977 or for international calls +61 2 8256 3363.

Firestone had previously announced that it was in negotiations regarding setting a revised date for second stage completion to occur under the terms of the Restated Investment Agreement with Ariona SA, BBY Nominees Pty Ltd and Jaguar Funds Management Ltd. The negotiations failed to resolve a revised date for second stage completion, which had been expected to occur on 28 March 2013. As a result, the Restated Investment Agreement has terminated.



The company is nevertheless continuing discussions with the parties concerning alternative arrangements as well as considering alternative funding from other sources. The company expects to be able to update the market on the outcome of those negotiations by mid April 2013 and has requested to remain in voluntary suspension until that time. The company will update the market once those negotiations are concluded. Firestone retains the use of the Share Purchase Agreement signed on 26 April 2012 between the company and BBY Nominees Pty Ltd and this AUD2.2million facility may be drawn down upon to meet the company's short term funding needs.

Firestone Energy Ltd is aware of a media article contained in South Africa's "Business Day" newspaper of 6 December 2011 regarding the company. The article contains numerous incorrect assertions, including that:

*the Industrial Development Corporation ("IDC") has withdrawn its funding of Sekoko Resources (Pty) Ltd ("Sekoko"), Firestone?s joint venture partner for its Waterberg project;

*the IDC is currently the owner of a large portion of Firestone's shares in contravention of the Australian Corporations Act; and

*Eskom has not entered into a memorandum of understanding of with either Sekoko or Firestone.



The company wishes to advise shareholders that contrary to the alleged factual statements made in the press article:

*Sekoko has today confirmed to Firestone that the IDC has not withdrawn its funding arrangement with Sekoko and that Sekoko is not aware of any actual or threatened action by the IDC to withdraw its funding arrangement;

*the IDC is not currently the owner of any shares in Firestone and has not breached the Australian Corporations Act; and

*as previously announced by the company, Sekoko had entered into a memorandum of understanding with Eskom, the terms of which are in the process of being renegotiated.



Given the speculative nature of the media article, shareholders are urged not to take any action based on its contents.

Outlook

The development of the Waterberg Coal Project will continue with a view to receiving the necessary regulatory approvals. Negotiations with potential developers, financiers and off-take parties will be progressed as will the MOU with Eskom. Successful completion of the due diligence by the global power company may result in FSE securing a cornerstone investor that has the potential to inject cash and to provide significant off-take. The growing interest in South African coal, South Africa's shortage of power and the level of activity within the energy and coal sector provides an encouraging economic framework within which to advance this project.

Firestone announced that its joint venture with Sekoko Resources has received a firm Letter of Intent "LOI" from Stig Jiangsu Light - Textile Imp. - Exp. Co. Ltd "Stig Jiangsu", a member of the Sainty International Group. The LOI is for the purchase of a regular volume of 1.2million tonnes per annum of prime coal by way of shipments commencing in late 2012. There is a potential to increase this volume to 2.4million tonnes per annum depending on the availability of rail capacity to Richards Bay coal terminal. The coal which is the subject of the transaction will be the higher "A" grade coal which will be extracted from the company's Smitspan property and which will have a calorific value greater than that required by Eskom. The transaction is priced relative to a recognised index and revenue, this transaction has attracted a premium price for the higher calorific value, low ash, low phosphate coal product. It is the intention that the FSE/Sekoko JV and Stig Jiangsu will progress the LOI to a binding agreement within 90 days. The joint venture has received a number of inquiries for the purchase of coal which is surplus to the existing agreement with Eskom. This LOI is tangible evidence of the marketability of the joint venture's coal and underpins the progress which is being made in the development of a viable coal company.

Firestone refers to the attached appendix 3Y "Change of Director's Interests Notice" lodged today by Mr David Perkins, a director of the company. Mr Perkins purchased 2 000 000 ordinary shares on 4 May 2011, two days after Firestone announced that it proposed to offer shareholders of Firestone (who were shareholders at 5pm on Friday, 29 April 2011) the opportunity to subscribe for shares under a share purchase plan (SPP) and be allocated free attaching options under an accompanying prospectus (Prospectus). Mr Perkins immediately informed the Company of the trade and acknowledged that he had inadvertently traded in a prohibited period by reason of the Prospectus being a "disclosure document offering securities" for the purposes of the Company`s trading policy.



The Prospectus under which the free attaching options are offered to shareholders is not itself intended to raise funds, but is required for technical reasons due to the inclusion of free attaching options under the SPP (SPPs without options are exempt under ASIC Class Order (CO 09/425) from the disclosure provisions contained in Chapter 6D of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth)). For the purpose of clarity, Mr Perkins` trade does not render him eligible to participate under the SPP as it occurred after the record date. The Company takes its securities trading policy seriously and the Company Secretary has reminded all Directors and Senior Management of their obligations. In this instance the Company is satisfied that the trade and subsequent breach of the Trading Policy was unintentional.

Firestone Energy Ltd (ASX /JSE : FSE) and its joint venture partner, Sekoko Coal (Pty) Ltd are confident that their project is the most cost competitive coal project second to Exxaro's Grootgeluk. The FSE/Sekoko project is the closest to the existing infrastructure including water pipelines, electricity connection points and rail. The FSE/Sekoko mine being developed is only 5kms from Grootegeluk's existing mine pit and also only 10kms away from the currently built Medupi Power station. These benefits provide cost effective propositions to potential off-takers such as Eskom's Waterberg power stations especially if Eskom act on their strategy to develop and accept new coal suppliers in addition to the existing Grootegeluk Exxaro mine. The rail experts designing our rail spur have confirmed that the distance to connect to the existing Transnet Freight Rail (TFR) line is approximately 7kms using design parameters that comply with TFR's requirements. The management of the FSE/Sekoko Waterberg project are confident that a relatively short distance such as this will not only be cost effective, but will also reduce time to implement the rail spur, reduce work on environmental compliance, require servitude from one external land owner and can be easily funded. Work has commenced on the Environmental Application for the rail link. The existing water pipeline from Mogol dam to Grootegeluk, Matimba Power station, serving Lephalale town passes approximately 15 kms away from the proposed initial pit. The second pipeline which will serve Medupi will also be installed in the vicinity. Negotiations have been concluded with Eskom power supply division to supply the main project with full power from commissioning, eliminating the need to use costly diesel generators. FSE/Sekoko's main objective is to assist with maintaining energy security in South Africa. It is a bonus and a privilege that the FSE/Sekoko project can achieve this objective in a cost competitive manner resulting in consistent supply of electricity at relatively low prices and especially when the country has a shortfall of power requirements.

The Firestone Energy Ltd/Sekoko Resources joint venture announced that independent geological consulting company Venmyn Rand (Pty) Ltd have completed a significant upgrade of the shallow coal resources within the Waterberg Coal Region located at the north end of South Africa.



Highlights

Significant increase of total coal zone resource to 5.173 billion tonnes (+36%) and coal gross tonnes in-situ ("GTIS") of 1.881 billion tonnes (+41%) compared to the October 2009 coal resource summary. The main Smitspan farm has now a measured resource of 238.67 million tonnes coal GTIS (+145%) where the 21 year mine life open cast was located and highlighted within the DFS release on 29th June 2010 which included total coal sales of 120.8 million tonnes. The total measured and indicated resource at Smitspan has increased to 714.51 million tonnes (+39%) where the last 12 recent in fill holes all intersected coal. The relatively undrilled Swanepoelpan farm (4 holes) is located directly west and adjacent to the Smitspan large open cast and creates the potential to dramatically extend the DFS open cast design to the west and northwest.



Bankable feasibility study

The bankable feasibility study currently nearing completion by Parsons Brinckerhoff has determined that the planned mining area, situated within the measured resources on the Smitspan farm, can be mined economically. This report is anticipated to be released in September 2010, once issued this final BFS report will include the definitive value of the proven reserve on the Smitspan farm.

(Official Notice)
Firestone announced that good progress was being made on the bankable feasibility study (BFS) at the company's flagship Waterberg project in South Africa, with results now expected in July 2010. The BFS follows on the Prefeasibility Study which was completed and approved in January 2010. The objective of the study is to define an open cast mine that could meet expected customer requirements and which can be brought into production by mid 2011 on the Smitspan farm. A further 12 boreholes, of which six were large diameter (165mm) as required for detailed customer analysis have been completed by the end Aril 2010. This significantly enhances the qualitative and technical data base that was developed with the 122 boreholes drilled previously.



Metallurgical coal update

Additional holes are currently being drilled on a selected area of the Vetleegte and Hooikraal Farms to confirm the presence of higher yielding metallurgical coal at potentially attractive stripping ratios.



Cash Flow and funding

The board of Firestone would like to advise that although Firestone's last quarterly report indicated that Firestone has USD1 684 million of cash, the company, as previously announced, entered into a USD25 million fully underwritten draw down facility in September 2009, which still has USD10 million left to be drawn. At its present and projected rate of cash utilisation Firestone remains fully funded (including the acquisition of Hooikraal and Smitspan farms), until the second quarter of 2011. This excludes any further capital injections from the cornerstone investor process.



Cornerstone Investor Process

Firestone has engaged with over twenty interested international parties, some of which are undertaking detailed due diligence and site visits. The current strong global demand for both metallurgical and thermal coal is bringing strong interest to Firestone's project. The market will be informed as this process progresses.

The North West portion of the property has the potential for a small open pit mine with easy access to the lower, high quality coal seams. Once again the situation is ideal for product stockpiles, a laboratory, weighbridges and other surface infrastructure including a conveyor transfer point en route to power stations. This is a particularly important consideration, in view of the Medupi power station being only eight kilometres away.

The company will continue to expend funds in line with its forecast as stipulated in item 4 of the recently released March Quarterly Report. These funds will be predominantly used to progress the company's exploration and evaluation programme and to increase the level of confidence in the orebody and progress the Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) for the Waterberg project. As announced to the market on 11 September 2009, the company has successfully raised AUD25 million by way of a convertible note drawdown facility. This facility will be used by the company to fund a full scale BFS for the Waterberg coal project. Currently the company has a further AUD12 million to drawdown on this facility.



The company will continue to expend funds for the purpose of exploration and evaluation and progression of the BFS and therefore the expectation is that there will be negative operating cashflows in the future. In order to fund this commitment the company has in place the convertible note drawdown facility mentioned above.



As mentioned above, in the short term, the company will meet the costs of its BFS and exploration programme via drawdown of its convertible note facility. The board is aware that in order to progress the project past a BFS stage and into an operational phase further project financing will be required. To this end, and as communicated to the market on 27 April 2010 in the Shareholder update, the company is seeking a cornerstone investor to develop its Waterberg projects. The company can confirm that it is in compliance with the listing rules and in particular with listing rule 3.1.



Given the responses above, the company can confirm that it is in compliance with listing rule 12.2, and that the company's financial position warrants continued quotation of its securities on the ASX.

River Group was authorised to announce that FSE and Sekoko Resources (Pty) Ltd ("Sekoko") have entered into an agreement in terms whereof FSE, through its wholly owned subsidiary Lexshell, will acquire an interest in the prospecting rights held by Sekoko over the farms Swanepoelpan and Duikerfontein. ("the transaction"). Sekoko is a major shareholder of FSE and the company's BEE partner.



Description of the transaction

The transaction will take the form of a joint venture agreement between Sekoko and Firestone it is expected that substantial additional size and scale will be added to the existing Waterberg project. Significantly, the farms share boundaries along strike west from the farm Smitspan. Drilling data from 9 exploration holes on these farms indicate that the full sequence of 12 coal zones exists on these farms, 3 holes on farm Swanepoelpan indicate access at shallow depth to coal within 1.5km west of the proposed Smitspan pit. Swanepoelpan shares a common boundary with the farm Smitspan where the FSE/Sekoko joint venture has recently acquired the surface rights and the joint venture is completing a bankable feasibility study for the establishment of an open cast coal mine. Duikerfontein is immediately adjacent to Swanepoelpan. The acquisition of Swanepoelpan and Duikerfontein has the potential of extending both the size and the mine life of the planned Smitspan open cast mine. It could enable the joint venture to realise significant synergies in scale and mine options.



In summary FSE will pay Sekoko:

* a non-refundable amount of AUS100,000 immediately

* a further non-refundable payment of AUS100,000 on or before 1 July 2010

* a cash payment of AUS1,800,000 on or before 31 July 2011

* the issue to Sekoko of 200 million fully paid ordinary additional shares in FSE.



The agreement is subject, inter alia, to the approval of FSE shareholders, all regulators, (including the South African Reserve Bank and the JSE) and FSE financiers. The transaction is further subject to Lexshell conducting a valuation and due diligence programme in respect of the two farms. It is expected such approvals will be obtained and the due diligence completed prior to July 2011.
