(Official Notice)
MC Mining (the "company") announced that its subsidiary, Baobab Mining - Exploration (Pty) Ltd. ("Baobab"), has reached agreement on the terms and conditions under which it will acquire the two key properties required for its Makhado hard coking and thermal coal project ("Makhado Project" or "Makhado"). The Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") will result in Baobab owning the Lukin and Salaita properties (the "Properties") and is subject to a suspensive condition, which the parties have every expectation will be met in early January 2019. As previously stated the company has been pursuing various avenues, including legal and negotiation on commercial terms with the owner, a privately owned company, who utilises the Properties for commercial hunting purposes.



In terms of the Agreement, the Properties will be acquired for R70 million (USD4.8 million) to be settled in two equal tranches of R35 million (USD2.4 million) with the Properties pledged as security until the purchase price (including any accrued interest) is settled. The initial tranche is payable on transfer of the Properties while Baobab will have access to the Properties upon payment of this amount to the conveyancing attorneys. The second tranche will accrue interest at the South African prime interest rate (currently 10.0%) less 3.0% (from date of transfer) and is payable on the earlier of:

* the third anniversary of the transfer of the Properties; or

* the first anniversary of production of coal underlying the Properties; or

* completion of a potential land claims and expropriation process that would, in all likelihood result in Baobab receiving market related compensation under present legislation. Should the Properties be expropriated in favour of the land claimants, MC Mining will negotiate access terms with the Minister of Land Affairs and the successful claimants who are expected to be communities who have a shareholding in Baobab.

MC Mining, operating in South Africa, is pleased to announce that its 70% owned Uitkomst Colliery ("Uitkomst" or the "Colliery") has secured a R20 million (approximately USD1.4 million) facility (the "Facility") from ABSA Bank Limited ("ABSA"), a major South African financial services provider.

MC Mining has signed Heads of Agreements (?HOAs?) with leading international Chinese construction enterprise, China Railway International Group Co., Ltd. (?CRIG?).

MC Mining announced further progress at its fully permitted Makhado hard coking and thermal coal project (?Makhado Project? or ?Makhado?), located in the Limpopo province in South Africa.

MC Mining Ltd. (?MC Mining? or the ?Company?) announced in October 2017 that it had sold its shares and claims in the Mooiplaats thermal colliery (?Mooiplaats? or the ?Colliery?) for an aggregate purchase price of R179.9 million.

The timing of the ten equal quarterly payments to settle the remaining balance of R112.9 million was scheduled to commence during August 2018 but was dependent on the Department of Mineral Resources (?DMR?) approving the requisite Section 102 application to, amongst other things, incorporate certain prospecting rights into the Colliery?s mining right, failing which the payments would be delayed.

MC Mining announced a successful High Court of South Africa judgement, discharging an interim interdict originally granted in December 2014 (the ?Interim Interdict?). The favourable June 2018 judgement (the ?Judgement?) pertains to a matter between the Vhembe Mineral Stakeholders Forum (and others) (together the ?Applicants?) and the Limpopo Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism together with the Company. The Judgement rescinds the Interim Interdict against the Company?s Environmental Authorisation (?EA?) for the Makhado hard coking and thermal coal project (?Makhado Project? or ?Makhado?).



The Interim Interdict was originally issued against the Company in an attempt to prevent MC Mining from undertaking activities pertaining to the Makhado Project?s construction and mining. During July 2016, the EA was transferred to MC Mining?s subsidiary, Baobab Mining - Exploration (Pty) Ltd. (?Baobab?), the owner and developer of the Makhado Project. This transfer was completed in compliance with the National Environmental Management Act (107 of 1998) and, as previously announced, the Company did not anticipate the Interim Interdict delaying the development of the project.



The Company has undertaken various initiatives to address the Interim Interdict and the Judgement granted two orders, namely:

1. discharging the Interim Interdict against the Company, including an award against the Applicants for appropriate costs, including those of two legal counsel; and

2. dismissal of a further application by the Applicant to extend the Interim Interdict to Baobab. Again, this dismissal included a costs award against the Applicants.

Coal of Africa Limited (?CoAL? or the ?Company?) shareholders are referred to the announcement released earlier today as well as previous announcements in respect of the 20 to 1 consolidation of CoAL shares (the ?Consolidation?) and change of name to MC Mining Limited, as approved at the Company?s Annual General Meeting (?AGM?) on 24 November 2017.



The AGM notice distributed to shareholders expounded that Section 254H(1) of the Australian Corporations Act (?the Act?) stipulates that when a Consolidation results in a shareholder having an entitlement to a fraction of a share (the ?Fractional Entitlement?), that fraction will be rounded up to the nearest whole number of shares. This results in each shareholder?s proportional interest in the Company?s issued capital remaining unchanged as a result of the Consolidation (other than minor variations resulting from rounding).



The Consolidation of Fractional Entitlement shares listed on the South African register trading on the JSE Limited will be undertaken in compliance with the Act, resulting in the number of shares held by the shareholder being rounded up to the nearest whole number and, no fractional payment will be effected. Furthermore, the salient dates and times announced on Thursday, 23 November 2017 remain unchanged and shareholders are directed to consult with their investment advisors should they have any queries regarding the abovementioned processes.

The Company has lodged the necessary name change forms with ASIC and Computershare will be unable to transfer CoAL shares between the South African register and the Australian or United Kingdom registers until ASIC approval is received.

(collectively the ?CoAL Group?), as well as its Black Economic Empowerment partner Ferret Mining - Environmental Services (Pty) Ltd. (?Ferret?) had entered into a sale of shares and claims agreement (?the Agreement?) with Mooiplaats Coal Holdings (Pty) Ltd. (?MCH? or the ?Purchaser?) and Mooiplaats Mining Ltd. (?Mooiplaats?). In terms of the Agreement, CoAL and Ferret disposed of 100% of their shares in Mooiplaats and the CoAL Group disposed of their respective claims against Mooiplaats and its wholly owned subsidiary Langcarel (Pty) Ltd. (?the Transaction?), the owner of the Mooiplaats thermal coal colliery (?Mooiplaats Colliery?).



The company announced that all conditions precedent for the Transaction have been timeously fulfilled or waived and in accordance with its terms, the sale of the Mooiplaats shares and claims for an aggregate purchase price of R179.9 million (the ?Purchase Price?) has been implemented today, 2 November 2017.



The completion of the Transaction resulted, inter alia, in:

* the payment of the initial tranche of R67.0 million of the Purchase Price being:

o R52.0 million to the CoAL Group; and

o R15.0 million to Ferret in full and final settlement of their equity.



The balance of the R112.9 million Purchase Price will be settled in not more than ten quarterly instalments (the ?Deferred Payments?), with the first Deferred Payment anticipated to be due in August 2018, nine months after the closing of the Transaction. The timing of the Deferred Payments is linked to the Department of Mineral Resources approval of inter alia the incorporation of Portions 2, 3 and the remaining extent of the farm Klipbank 295 IT into the Mooiplaats Colliery New Order Mining Right (?NOMR?), granted in terms of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act (28 of 2002), and an application to effect this transfer has been lodged with the department.

The Purchaser has replaced the company?s rehabilitation guarantee required in terms of the Mooiplaats Colliery?s NOMR, as well as the Eskom guarantee (together the ?Guarantees?). The replacement and release of the Guarantees will result in a further amount of approximately R16.0 million, which does not from part of the Purchase Price, being received by the CoAL Group during November 2017.

Future developments

CoAL continued to restructure its balance sheet and on 30 June 2017 acquired 91% of the Uitkomst Colliery for R275 million, of which R25 million is deferred. The colliery is a high grade thermal export quality coal mine employing approximately 520 employees (including contractors) and has well-established infrastructure including water and power supplies, buildings, workshops, weighbridge and management facilities.



The 69% owned (post the Black Economic Empowerment transaction) Makhado Project has the required approvals and awaits resolution of surface rights on two farms prior to completion of geotechnical drilling. The company completed a definitive feasibility study for Makhado during FY2013 indicating that the project has 344.8 million mineable tonnes in situ and this has been amended to facilitate a quicker mine construction period. The opencast project is expected to produce 4.0Mtpa of ROM coal yielding 0.7-0.8Mtpa of hard coking coal and 0.9-1.0Mtpa of export thermal coal. The company is monitoring the land claims process on the farms Lukin and Salaita forming part of the project.



The company continues to progress the outstanding regulatory matters as they relate to the 100% owned Vele Colliery. The South African Department of Mineral Resources ("DMR") has granted an Environmental Authorisation in terms of the National Environmental Management Act ("NEMA") and the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations (2014) for a stream diversion and associated infrastructural activities. CoAL awaits the approval of the Integrated Water Use Licence ("IWUL") from the Department of Water and Sanitation authorising the diversion of a perennial stream. When this approval is finalised the company will make the decision on the commencement of the plant modification taking prevailing market conditions into account.



The exploration and development of the CoAL prospects in the Soutpansberg coalfield is the catalyst for the long-term growth of the company. The DMR is considering the company's NOMR applications for the Mopane, Generaal and Chapudi Projects.

According to Business Report junior coal producer Coal of Africa was a winner on the JSE the previous day as it closed at 21.28 percent higher at 57 cents a share following news that Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane had lifted the suspension of its integrated water use licence (Iwul) for the Makhado Project in Limpopo. The lifting of the suspension means that CoAL has overcome the last major regulatory hurdle for the construction of Makhado, its flagship thermal and coking coal project and paves the way for its fundraising and market plans.

CoAL advised that the suspension of the Integrated Water Use Licence (?IWUL?) for the Makhado Project has been lifted by the South African Minister of the Department of Water and Sanitation (?DWS?), Ms Nomvula Mokonyane.



In April 2016, an appeal was lodged against the decision by the DWS to grant an IWUL to Baobab Mining and Exploration (Pty) Ltd. (?Baobab?) for Makhado in terms of Section 41 of the South African National Water Act (Act 36 of 1998) (?the Act?). Following representation by the company in May 2016 and February 2017, the Minister exercised her discretion and lifted the suspension in terms of Section 148 (2) (B) of the Act. The IWUL is now executable. The appellants have the opportunity to voice their concerns through the Water Tribunal. The lifting of the appeal by the Minister and the recently announced finance facility by the IDC are key steps in the advancing of the Makhado Project.

Future developments

The NOMR for the Makhado Project was granted in May 2015 as well as a section 11 approval for the transfer of the right to CoAL's 74% owned subsidiary, Baobab Mining. The company was granted the IWUL in January 2016 for the period equal to life of mine. The company completed a Definitive Feasibility Study ("DFS") for Makhado during FY2013 which indicates that the project has 344.8 million mineable tonnes in situ and a 16 year life of mine. The opencast project is expected to produce 12.6Mtpa of ROM coal yielding 2.3Mtpa of hard coking coal and 3.2Mtpa of thermal coal for domestic and export markets. The Makhado project finalised the FEED during the current financial year and is currently engaged with investors to complete the funding for the project. Once funding is in place and regulatory approvals have been obtained the company expects board approval to commence construction by the second half of CY 2017.



The company will continue to progress all outstanding regulatory matters as they relate to both the Makhado project and the Vele Colliery. With respect to the Vele Colliery the extension and amendment of the Vele IWUL was granted during the year under review. Given the prevailing commodity market conditions the company applied for all approvals to cover future mining areas which includes the diversion of two non-perennial streams. When the latest approval is finalised (expected toward the end of CY2016) the company will make the decision on the commencement of the plant modification taking into account the prevailing market conditions.



The exploration and development of the CoAL prospects in the Soutpansberg coalfield is the catalyst for the long-term growth of the company. The DMR is considering the company's NOMR applications for the Mopane, Generaal, Chapudi and Telema and Gray projects.

International engineer and project delivery group DRA Global has announced that its South African company DRA Projects SA has been awarded the Optimisation Study and Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) package for Coal of Africa Ltd. (CoAL) Makhado coal project.



The Makhado project is located in the Limpopo Province of South Africa, and is approximately 80 km from CoAL?s existing Vele Colliery. It is planned that both hard coking coal and thermal coal will be produced from the Makhado project for export and domestic consumption. Initially the operation will be an opencast mine, with potential for expansion to an underground operation in future years.



DRA?s recent award follows its earlier role on the Makhado project for CoAL in the preparation of the Definitive Feasibility Study of the coal processing and handling facilities, completed in early 2013. The scope of the Optimisation and FEED assignment expands this earlier role by DRA to now include the infrastructure components of the project, and also the integration of the work of a number of specialist consultants.

CoAL?s current plan is that work on the Makhado site will begin during the second semester of 2016, followed by a 26 month build programme with first coal produced during 2019.

During H2 2015, the Company commenced a process to obtain approval relating to a non-perennial stream diversion. This decision is anticipated in H2 2016. Once this regulatory approval in respect of the Colliery has been received, the final decision to proceed with the PMP will be placed before the board, which will include an assessment of forecast global coal prices.

In December 2014, an interim court interdict was issued against the Environmental Authorisation for the Makhado Project.



CoAL launched a counter- application in March 2015 to set the interdict aside. On Thursday, 3 December 2015, this matter was heard in the North Gauteng High Court. After hearing argument from counsel from both parties, judgment was reserved and the matter postponed to consider the papers filed and arguments made.



Judgement was handed down on Tuesday 8 December 2015 on two matters, firstly being the condition to compel CoAL to conduct a Strategic Regional Impact Assessment and secondly a review of the Environmental Authorisation. The condition compelling CoAL to conduct a Strategic Regional Impact Assessment has been set aside. The interim interdict against the Environmental Authorisation remains in place pending the review of the authorisation.



Based on the interim nature of the interdict, and various other factors, The company does not believe that it will delay its timeline regarding the commencement of the construction in H2 2016.



CoAL will study the judgment in detail, and will review its various options available.

CoAL announced that, following the announcement on 26 November 2015 regarding the recommended offer to be made for Universal Coal plc, it has entered into a subscription agreement with M-G Investment Management Ltd. ("M-G"), pursuant to which M-G has agreed to subscribe for new CoAL shares for an aggregate subscription amount of USD3 million ("M-G Subscription Agreement") at a subscription price of USD0.0435 (approximately AUD0.061) per CoAL share.



The USD3 million to be provided under the M-G Subscription Agreement is the final element of the financing required by CoAL for its offer to acquire all the issued share capital of Universal Coal plc (the "Offer"), and means that, on the basis of the intention statements received by CoAL in respect of the loan note alternative for the Offer, and subject to all applicable conditions being satisfied, the funding for the Offer has now been fully secured.



M-G's commitment to subscribe under the M-G Subscription Agreement is subject to the same conditions as the subscription agreement entered into between CoAL and Yishun Brightrise Enterprise Pte Ltd. on 25 November 2015 ("YBI Subscription Agreement"), being (1) if required, M-G receiving approval for the issue of the subscription shares from the Australian Foreign Investment Review Board, (2) CoAL's shareholders approving the issue of the new CoAL shares to M-G, and (3) the Offer becoming unconditional in all respects (other than the condition that the YBI Subscription Agreement and M-G Subscription Agreement have become unconditional in all respects). The M-G Subscription Agreement will terminate automatically if these conditions have not been satisfied by 30 June 2016. In addition, M-G has a right to terminate the M-G Subscription Agreement for breach of warranty by CoAL which, in M-G?s reasonable opinion, is material in the context of its aggregate investment in CoAL (including its previous investments).



The M-G Subscription Agreement is otherwise on substantially similar terms to the YBI Subscription Agreement. CoAL shareholder approval for the issue of subscription shares to M-G and Yishun will be sought at the general meeting convened to approve the acquisition.

Coal advised that the South African Minister of the Department of Environmental Affairs (?DEA?), Ms Edna Molewa, has dismissed the Appeal against the Environmental Authorisation (?EA?) Amendment for the Vele Colliery in the Limpopo Province. The EA Amendment was granted in January 2015 in terms of the National Environmental Management Act (NEMA) (Act 107 of 1998) and appeals were lodged in April 2015.



In evaluating the grounds of appeal, the Minister considered the fact that the EA Amendment would not pose any additional impacts to those considered in the original Environmental Authorisation issued in terms of Section 24G of NEMA in 2011.



Coal will continue to progress the Renewal and Amendment Applications in respect of Vele?s Integrated Water Use Licence (?IWUL?) Application under the South African National Water Act (?the Act?). The Colliery was placed under care and maintenance in preparation for the approval and construction of the Plant Modification Project as well as an assessment of forecast global coal prices. The Company previously submitted applications to amend and renew Vele's IWUL and expects these to be granted during H2 CY2015. Subsequently the company also decided to obtain approval relating to a non-perennial stream diversion. This decision is only anticipated in H2 CY2016. The Company will await all regulatory approvals before the final decision to proceed will be placed before the board.

Coal of Africa Limited (?CoAL? or the ?Company") is pleased to announce that it has concluded agreements with broad based black economic empowerment (?BBBEE?) partners for their acquisition of 26 per cent of the Makhado hard coking and thermal coal project (the ?Makhado Project?) (the ?Transaction?). Conclusion of the Transaction, which is subject to the conditions set out below, will ensure the Makhado Project complies with mining legislation in South Africa and satisfies one of the last remaining requirements for the granting of a New Order Mining Right.



The Transaction results in the Makhado Colliery Community Development Trust (the ?Trust?), representing seven local communities living in the vicinity of the proposed colliery, acquiring 20 per cent of the Makhado Project. The broad base of the Trust?s beneficiaries ensures that the Makhado Project will significantly benefit local communities. A further 6 per cent has been acquired by Yoright Investments (Pty) Ltd (?Yoright?) a company formed by black entrepreneur Mike Nkuna whose shareholder grouping will include Historically Disadvantaged South Africans and other black entrepreneurs, further expanding the BBBEE shareholding in the project. The Transaction will result in the Trust owning 20 per cent, Yoright 6 per cent and CoAL 74 per cent of Baobab Mining - Exploration (Pty) Ltd, the entity that will implement the Makhado Project.



The Transaction is conditional on inter alia Section 11 approval from the Department of Mineral Resources. The Trust and Yoright have to raise sufficient funding within two years, or such date agreed between the parties. The final amount payable is subject to due diligence and will be negotiated with the Company following these processes.

Revenue for the year decreased to USD761 000 (USD1.0 million). Loss for the year attributable to owners narrowed to USD84.1 million (loss of USD148.1 million). In addition, headline loss per share eased to USD6.74cps (loss of USD11.12cps).



Dividend

No dividend has been paid or proposed for the financial year ended 30 June 2014 (nil).



Future developments

The company has finalised additional core drilling and core testing in order to ascertain the coal quality at the Vele colliery. This data has been utilised in a financial model which supports the investment case for a plant to produce semi-soft coking coal as well as sized and un-sized thermal coal. The board approved the technical plan and has commenced on the FEED of the plant modification required at Vele. The planned plant modification will be funded from the proceeds of the proposed equity raise.



The Makhado project Definitive Feasibility Study ('DFS') completed during the previous financial year, indicates that the project has 344.8 million mineable tonnes in situ and a 16 year life of mine. The opencast project is expected to produce 12.6 million tonnes per annum ('Mtpa') of ROM coal yielding 2.3 Mtpa of hard coking coal and 3.2 Mtpa of thermal coal for the domestic or export markets. The estimated average on-mine operating costs are ZAR865 (USD89) per tonne of hard coking coal (after thermal by-product credit) and the project is expected to cost ZAR3.96 billion (USD406 million) (including contingency) to build. The project's Internal Rate of Return ('IRR') of 30.1% and Net Present Value ('NPV') of ZAR6.79 billion (USD697 million) were calculated using independently forecast average hard coking coal prices over the life of the mine. There are a number of milestones still to be met before the Makhado project achieves both technical and commercial feasibility.



The exploration and development of the Coal prospects in the Soutpansberg coalfield is the catalyst for the long-term growth of the company. The Department of Mineral Resources has accepted the company's New Order Mining Right ('NOMR') applications for the Mopane, Generaal and Chapudi projects.

Coal announced that, subsequent to the receipt of an approved term sheet as announced on 30 August 2013, the Company has finalised an 18-month, R210 million (approximately USD21.4 million) working capital facility from Investec Bank Ltd. (Investec). The facility will be used for general operating expenditure and enable Coal to continue to execute against the key priorities of its previously disclosed enhanced turnaround strategy.



The working capital facility will be used to fund the much reduced, on-going operating costs of the company while awaiting the proceeds from the sale of the identified non-core assets which are Woestalleen, Mooiplaats, Opgoedenhoop and Holfontein.



The loan will be made available in two equal tranches linked to progress in the disposal of the Woestalleen and Mooiplaats collieries. The principal terms of the loan include a margin of 500 basis points, pledge and cession of the shares and loan accounts in the major operating subsidiaries of the group. In addition to the above Coal will issue 20 million options to Investec which are exercisable at R1.32 before October 2018. The first tranche of the funds are available immediately and amount to R105 million (approximately USD10.7 million) It is forecast that the proceeds generated from sale of the non-core assets, once completed will be sufficient to settle the facility.

(Official Notice)
Coal announced that its board approved a R220 million expansion at Vele Colliery in August 2013. This is in line with the company's publicly announced strategy to reposition itself as a project development company focusing on its coking coal assets. The approval follows the re-evaluation and confirmation of the quality of coal at Vele, and the conclusion of a review of the current operations. As part of that process and in order for the colliery to reduce the current cash losses incurred, the colliery will cease production during October in order to prepare for the construction phase of the announced expansion. The company has commenced the required fund raising activities which should be finalised by the end of March 2014. Completion of the expansion is expected by the end of 2014. Thereafter, the colliery will begin to ramp up operations during 2015, and will be at full production by the end of that year.



A collaborative and inclusive engagement process with the contractor companies operating at the mine has been concluded, with 49 people retained. A total of 138 employees have been redeployed to other operations and 155 employees were retrenched. Throughout this process, the company attempted to minimise job losses, while proactively engaging with all its stakeholders to minimise these impacts. This resulted in 55% of jobs preserved. The company's commitment to recruit from its local labour-sending areas will be upheld upon commencement of the construction phase in 2014. The company will continue to honour all its obligations in terms of the relevant authorisations, and remains committed to on-going engagement and co-operation with all its key stakeholders.

Highlights of the Makhado DFS include:

*12.6 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) Run of Mine (ROM) which is expected to produce 2.3Mtpa of hard coking coal and 3.2Mtpa of thermal coal.

*Favourable Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of 30.1% (unleveraged) and a Net Present Value (NPV) of R6.79 billion (USD697 million) at a real discount rate of 8%.

*Mineable tonnes in-situ (MTIS) 344.8 million tonnes (Mt).

*16 year Life of Mine (LOM) at a mine average gate cost of R865.00 (USD88.71) per saleable hard coking coal tonne (after thermal coal by- product credit).

*Capital expenditure of R3.96 billion (bn) (USD406.3 million) including contingency.

*Non-discounted peak funding requirement is R4.2 billion (USD432.8 million).

*Makhado has a hard coking coal (HCC) producing a metallurgical coke with a high coke strength after reaction (CSR) value above 60.

*The Makhado Project benefits from excellent existing infrastructure with respect to rail, road, power and port allocation.



The DFS was undertaken by Coal with the assistance of a number of leading independent industry consulting firms. The DFS defined a 16 year LOM, with mining expected to take place at an average rate of 12.6Mtpa ROM in order to produce 2.3Mtpa of hard coking coal and 3.2Mtpa of thermal coal, at a steady state. The resource will be mined on an opencast basis with the potential for expansion into underground.

Coal advised that it proposes placing the Mooiplaats Colliery ("Mooiplaats" or "the Colliery") on care and maintenance and will embark on a regulatory Section 189A ("S189A") process with effect from 3 June 2013 with stakeholders. This decision follows sustained and concerted attempts over the past two financial years to make the operation profitable and enable it to produce positive cash flows. The company's efforts to improve productivity and establish profitable operations at Mooiplaats, including capital investment, have been hampered by the global downturn in thermal coal prices over the last year. The situation has been exacerbated by the inability of the Colliery to ramp up production to achieve required targets due to poor operational performance and challenging geological conditions. Consequently the company has continued incurring an unacceptable level of operational losses.



Mooiplaats recorded a loss of approximately R167million for the financial year ended 30 June 2012 and has generated an average monthly loss of R20million since the beginning of the current financial year. The company has an allocation of three million tonnes in Maputo at the Matola Terminal and is working to mitigate the take or pay exposure. The company's cash position as at 31 March 2013 was USD67.4million. The regulatory S189A process will begin on 3 June 2013 and will involve a two month consultation period whereby Coal must engage with all relevant stakeholders. This process will evaluate alternatives to placing the Colliery on care and maintenance. Mooiplaats currently employs 290 employees and 258 contractors. Coal will continue to provide updates on material developments as they occur.

(Official Notice)
Coal ("the company") announced that it was advised by Transnet Freight Rail ("TFR") of a derailment of 10 wagons on the Maputo ("Matola") rail corridor on 18 February 2013 that has led to all rail traffic between Komatipoort and Maputo being suspended. Based on the current information the suspension is for a period of at least seven (7) weeks ("the suspension period"). TFR has attempted to establish alternative routes to the Matola Port which to date have unfortunately been unsuccessful.



Accordingly, the company advised that its subsidiaries Limpopo Coal Company (Pty) Ltd. (the holding company for the Vele Colliery), Langcarel (Pty) Ltd. (the holding company for Mooiplaats) and NuCoal Mining (Pty) Ltd. (the holding company for Woestalleen) have issued force majeure notices to their customers, contractors and other affected stakeholders.



The company will implement measures at all operations to mitigate the commercial and operational impact of this force majeure. Production at Mooiplaats and Woestalleen will continue until stockpile capacity is exhausted. The existing stockpiles at Vele are at full capacity and have resulted in the temporary suspension of production. This suspension will preserve cash resources by reducing costs as the colliery is currently in developmental and product testing phase. Vele Colliery's essential services will continue and a buffer contingency plan has been initiated to enable production to restart within 24 hours once TFR resumes operations on the Matola corridor.



In the second quarter of FY2013, the company reported production of 1 153 486 tonnes run of mine coal of which 194 495 tonnes (16.86%) was produced by the Vele Colliery. The company exported for sale 411 297 tonnes and in addition sold 418 355 tonnes to the domestic (inland and Eskom) market in the same period. The company's take or pay obligations will be appropriately adjusted as a result of the force majeure.



Coal will continue to provide updates on material developments as they occur.

All four underground sections have stopped operations and management is in discussion with NUM representatives to resolve the matter and ensure the workers resume their shifts. Management has advised the union that disruptions and continued strike action will have a severe impact on the viability of Mooiplaats and is likely to result in job losses. The Colliery directly employs 368 people of which 244 are NUM members.



The company will further advise of any material change in this regard at the appropriate time.

Coal of Africa Ltd (the Company or CoAL) confirms that the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) has embarked on protected strike action at the company's Mooiplaats Colliery, near Ermelo, in Mpumalanga province, with effect from this morning Tuesday, 25 September 2012. The strike action is in relation to annual wage negotiations.



The company proposed a fair wage and benefit offer which amounted to an increase of 22% (all inclusive). This offer was not accepted by the workers. The NUM then applied for and was awarded a certificate to embark on a legal strike subject to the provision of 48 hours? notice to the company on 18 September 2012. CoAL immediately countered this through a Section 150 application to the Council for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration to facilitate a discussion between management and the union to resolve negotiations without the need for strike action. Unfortunately the mediation process was not successful and resulted in the workers proceeding with strike action today. Consequently the operations at the colliery have stopped. CoAL confirms that it will apply the no work no pay rule in relation to this strike.



Mooiplaats directly employs 368 people of which 176 are NUM members. The operation produces 6,000 run of mine tonnes per day. We will advise of any material developments regarding the strike situation.

Coal and the Save Mapungubwe Coalition ("the coalition"), are pleased to advise that the process of concluding a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) continues to advance and agreement has been reached to extend the completion date for the MoA between the parties. This follows the continuing and significant progress on the MoA with regard to Coal's Vele Colliery in Limpopo province. The aim is to conclude the MoA within the next few months thereby allowing for additional time for the final review of technical information and conclusion of the definitive agreement with the various Coalition members. The conclusion of the MoA will follow on the historic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the parties on 24 November 2011. Following the update in Coal's most recent quarterly report published on 30 April 2012, both parties have continued to work together to finalise details and conclude the process.



In terms of the MoU, the parties committed to working together to strengthen cooperation in the interest of sustainable development and the preservation and protection of the Mapungubwe cultural landscape. CoAL undertook to share all information relevant to the impacts of the Vele Colliery on the environment, including water and heritage resources.



The discussions between the parties have addressed, amongst other matters, further research, monitoring and modelling of the potential impacts of mining at the Vele Colliery and requisite amendments and improvements to Limpopo Coal's approved environmental management plan and water use licence, and participation in the environmental management committee and principles for heritage management and participation in the biodiversity negotiations. In particular, a preliminary report by an independent wetland and riparian expert commissioned by Coal and the Coalition has identified additional water use activities which were not applicable at the time that the general authorisation was issued, but which may require further licencing, and the company is seeking clarification from the Department of Water Affairs in this regard. Coal of Africa will continue to monitor, manage and mitigate the impacts of its activities on water resources.

Coal announced that the first shipment from the company's Vele Colliery in Limpopo Province was loaded into 30 rail wagons at the existing Musina siding on Tuesday, 24 April 2012. This first 'test' shipment train of approximately 1 500 tonnes of thermal coal is destined for the Matola Terminal in Maputo, Mozambique, from where it will be shipped and sold to Asian markets.



The coal was produced as part of the plant product test work that is currently being conducted on both metallurgical and thermal coal at Vele. A key objective of this test train run is to determine axle load capacity of the Transnet Freight Services (TFR) line between Groenbult and Hoedspruit. The test run is expected to confirm TFR's capacity to commence regular, weekly trains from this existing siding and on the existing line.



The shipment coincided with the official delivery of the plant from the project engineering consultants ELB Engineering Services to Vele mine management. Production at the Vele colliery resumed in December 2011 with the extraction of run of mine (ROM) material. Wet commissioning of the plant was completed in December 2011 and hot commissioning in February 2012. Further test work is currently being undertaken to confirm the design of processing infrastructure to enable the recovery of additional coking coal from the slimes portion of the coal, as well as the production of a secondary thermal product other than coking coal.

According to Business Day, Coal may look for a partner to help it develop nearly 2-billion tons of thermal and coking coal resources after concluding a USD75 million deal to buy Rio Tinto's Chapudi coal project in Limpopo. Coal has learnt "big lessons" from its experiences at its Vele project, which appears to have stalled over environmental concerns and worries about the effect that a proposed mine at Vele would have on the nearby Mapungubwe heritage site. Coal will also apply lessons from its run-in with environmental authorities in Mpumalanga at its Mooiplaats coal mine to its Makhado coking coal project that its contiguous to the Chapudi and other properties it will acquire in the deal with Rio Tinto and its partner Kwezi Mining. The Chapudi project adds 1-billion tons to Coal's 947-million ton resource in the Soutpansberg coal basin.

The coal assets comprise both thermal and coking coal development projects.



The acquisition of the Chapudi Coal Project provides Coal with an additional estimated 1 040Mt JORC resource (of which 90Mt is Measured, 220Mt Indicated and 730Mt Inferred, as defined in the 2004 Edition of the 'Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Minerals Resources and Ore Reserves' ("JORC Code") ), which is contiguous with its Makhado Coking Coal Project ("Makhado Project"). In addition, Coal will retain properties that were to be exchanged with the vendors in accordance with the Rio Farm Swap Agreement, the section 102 approval for which was announced on 13 September 2010.



The properties being acquired significantly extend the scale and scope of Coal's existing Voorburg and Jutland coal projects, together with adding new project areas including the Generaal, Wilderbeesthoek, Chapudi and Chapudi West coal projects. Coal's working knowledge of this acreage, which has been established during its period of ownership, exploration and resource delineation of Makhado, will aid in further exploring the contiguous acreage which it has now acquired.



Acquisition consideration

The consideration payable by Coal comprises:

*USD45 million upfront consideration in cash, payable on completion of the sale, which remains subject to a number of conditions precedent, including approval in accordance with Section 11 of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act. Completion of the sale is expected to occur within six months. Coal has already provided the Vendors with a USD2 million cash deposit; and

*USD30 million deferred cash consideration, payable on the earlier of (i) the granting of a New Order Mining Right for any farm or combination of farms that form part of the Coal Assets, or (ii) 24 months from fulfillment of the conditions precedent to the sale.

Coal advised it has now received confirmation from the South African Department of Mineral Resources ("DMR") that the application for Ministerial consent in terms of section 102 of the South African Minerals and Petroleum Resources Development Act, 2002 ("MPRD") to affect the Exchange of Prospecting Rights Agreement ("Rio Farm Swap Agreement") with Kwezi Mining and Exploration (Pty) Ltd ("Kwezi") and Chapudi Coal (Pty) Ltd ("Chapudi"), joint venture companies held by the Rio Tinto Group and the Kwezi Group of South Africa, as announced on 29 October 2009, has been granted. This rationalisation of the farms owned by Chapudi, Kwezi and Coal provides significant benefits to all parties in terms of creating numerous contiguous, well defined and economic coal projects.



Importantly, the approval of the Rio Farm Swap Agreement allows Coal to lodge a New Order Mining Right ("NOMR") application for the company's flagship Makhado Coking Coal Project ("Makhado"). In this regard, it is anticipated that the NOMR application will be lodged before the end of the calendar year, followed closely by an application for an Integrated Water Use Licence ("IWUL") and further relevant approvals, as required. Furthermore, as can be seen from the map, viewable at the company's website www.coalofafrica.com, the Rio Farm Swap Agreement creates another three significant coal projects around Makhado, namely the Mount Stuart Coking Coal Project, The Voorburg Coking Coal Project and the Jutland Coking Coal Project, together with an additional two farms which will form a natural extension to Makhado.

Vele Colliery update

Coal of Africa Limited provides the following update with regard to the ongoing discussions with the South African Department of Environmental Affairs ("DEA") around the Compliance Notice issued, as announced on 11 August 2010 and the Department of Water Affairs ("DWA") regarding an Integrated Water Use License application("IWULA") affecting the Company's Vele Colliery ("Vele").



Department of environmental affairs

CoAL advise that it has held several constructive meetings with various members of the DEA, including the Director General. The company has adhered to the Compliance Notice in full and is in the process of submitting rectification applications in terms of section 24G of the South African National Environmental Management Amendment Act, 1998 (ACT NO. 107 OF 1998), as amended ("NEMA") to continue with the activities, the subject of the Compliance Notice referred to above. The Company has also applied to the Minister for the suspension of the Compliance Notice during this process.



Department of water affairs

The company has also complied with a DWA directive requesting a cessation of related specific activities pending the issue of the IWULA. As required by the directive, an Independent Environmental Assessment Practitioner ("EAP") is being appointed to assess the current and proposed activities in conjunction with the IWULA process with respect to the impact on the risks to the water resource. Significant progress has been made between the DWA and the company in satisfying the technical requirements as raised by the Department. The cmpany remains confident that the processes between the company, DEA and DWA will be satisfactorily addressed. The timelines required to complete these processes has unfortunately left the Company with no choice but to reduce the workforce at the Vele Colliery by 596 people to date. Production is now likely to re-commence in Q4 2010. The Company will continue to keep the market informed of relevant progress.

(Official Notice)
Further to the announcement of 6 August 2010, Coal of Africa Ltd ("Coal") confirms that a meeting took place between the company and the senior representatives of the Department of Environmental Affairs ("DEA") on Tuesday 10 August 2010, during which discussion centred on the alleged "illegal activities" that had been identified by the DEA in the form of a compliance notice served in relation to the company's Vele Colliery.



The company maintains that all activities are within the rights of its New Order Mining Right, issued to Coal by the Department of Mineral Resources on 19 March 2010. The company is nonetheless complying with that Notice as required and confirms it has ceased certain activities at Vele. Coal confirms that both parties are continuing to work together in good faith and the company remains confident that an outcome satisfactory to both parties will be achieved.

CoAL will update the market on progress in due course.



Separately, the company reiterates that it has not received its Integrated Water Use Licence ("IWUL") as applied for in November 2009. Critically, mining and processing of the coal cannot commence without the benefit of the IWUL. The company continues to work closely with the Department of Water Affairs in order to facilitate the processing of the IWUL application.

Further to the company announcement of 2 August 2010, in response to comments made by the South African Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs on the company's Vele Colliery, Coal advised that management has now met with various senior representatives of the Department of Environmental Affairs ("DEA").

The company and the DEA have agreed to meet again on Tuesday, 10 August 2010, to discuss in detail each of the concerns identified by the DEA. The company is confident that each matter can be adequately resolved to the satisfaction of both parties and will advise the market as appropriate in due course.

ArcelorMittal South Africa Ltd ("ArcMittal") announced that it has acquired ArcelorMittal Group's 16.3% stake in Coal for R404.5 million in cash. The price is based on the previous 15-day volume weighted average share price of Coal on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange ("JSE"). The transaction will secure part of ArcMittal's future coal needs, mitigating one of the company's key variable input costs. As part of the transaction, ArcMittal has secured an option to enter into an off-take agreement with Coal for the supply of 2.5 million tonnes of metallurgical (coking) coal annually, with an option to raise this further in future. ArcMittal last year purchased 5.2 million tonnes of coal. This makes coal one of the largest input raw materials for the company. In addition to securing future coal supplies, ArcMittal believes that the quality of the coal it will procure from Coal's Vele Colliery Project will enable the company to increase the quantity of local coal in its overall coal mix to feed its furnaces, further enhancing management of input costs.

Further to its announcement on 25 August 2008, Coal announced that agreement has been reached with Transnet Freight Rail ("TFR"), a division of Transnet, the South African Government owned rail and freight organisation, for the rail allocation of one mtpa of coal to the Matola Terminal in Maputo, Mozambique.



This allocation matches the company's port allocation of one mtpa for the export of coking coal from the Vele and Makhado Coking Coal Projects ("coking coal projects") through the Matola Terminal, secured via a throughput agreement with Terminal De Carvao Da Matola Ltda.



Although development of the coking coal projects remains on track, neither of the coking coal projects are currently in production. However, Coal has already successfully railed third party coal to ensure the practical viability of the rail and port allocation, generating income from the allocation at the same time.



Coal also announced on 25 August 2008 that the company had secured the rights to up to 100% of any increased capacity at the Matola Terminal in consideration for contributing loan funding. Coal subsequently received formal advice that the proposed two mtpa expansion at the Matola Terminal will proceed and we are pleased to announce that agreement has been reached whereby the Company will loan the required funds for the expansion. Consequently, Coal's allocation at the Matola Terminal will be three mtpa, commencing from the anticipated expansion completion date of 1 August 2010. Discussions are ongoing with TFR to secure two mtpa additional rail capacity to match the planned port capacity at the Matola Terminal.



The three mtpa export allocation via the Matola Terminal is in addition to the potential domestic off-take agreement of up to 5mtpa of coking coal with ArcelorMittal, which is the subject of the executed letter of intent announced on 21 April 2008.

Coal provided the following update on progress of production at its Mooiplaats thermal coal project in South Africa:



Mining

Blasting of the access ramp floor has been completed, and concreting is in progress. Boxcut walls are being supported and the first continuous miner is expected to commence cutting of the underground coal portals during the latter half of November 2008, at which time the company also expects to take delivery of its second continuous miner.



Coal processing plant and infrastructure

Rain has caused some delays in civil work, however this is not expected to have a major impact on the construction schedule. Processing structures are expected to be erected on site during Q1 2009, with commissioning by March 2009 and first sales to take place by the end of H1 2009. Water allocation for the project is currently being reviewed by the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF), together with Eskom. Power generating sets, transformers and substations have been delivered, as well as several conveyor drive components. Surface infrastructure is under construction and is expected to be completed by the end of Q1 2009.



Logistics

Road construction is progressing well and is anticipated to be completed by the end of January 2009. Successful discussions were held with a local coal producer to obtain interim access to rail loading facilities, together with the proposed processing of a 2 000 tonne bulk sample of coal from the first underground production to assess lean coal qualities for marketing purposes. Negotiations with Transnet Freight Rail are close to completion and the company remains confident that it will secure adequate rail allocation to match the already secured port capacity at the dry bulk terminal at Richards Bay.

Coal of Africa is pleased to announce that both of the company's recent proposals, submitted jointly with Independent Power Producers ("IPP's") in response to South African utility, Eskom's tender for the independent generation of base load power, have been unconditionally pre- qualified. CoAL made two separate joint submissions to supply coal to a proposed IPP located close to each of the company's Makhado and Vele coking coal projects. In both cases, the coal supplied would be a "middlings" product, a lower quality coal produced additional to the primary coking coal product. Importantly, the successful economics of both coking coal projects are in no way dependent upon CoAL's ability to sell the middlings fraction, but it does represent substantial upside in the event that the IPP's were ultimately successful. Eskom anticipates that the IPP programme will increase South Africa's power generation by up to 4,500 MW by 2017, thereby reducing prevailing electricity supply shortages. CoAL's two submissions formed part of 23 pre-qualified tenders shortlisted by Eskom. The pre-qualified companies will be invited to submit their proposals at the end of November 2008, with contracts to be concluded by the first quarter of 2010. The "Build, Own, Operate" contracts are expected to last for 25 years, with the plants expected to start generating electricity between 2012 and 2017.

Coal of Africa announced that it had entered into a memorandum of understanding ("MOU") with Kwezi Mining and Chapudi Coal ("Chapudi"), joint venture companies held by the Rio Tinto Group and the Kwezi Group of South Africa, pursuant to which the parties intend to formalise agreements for:

*Chapudi to grant access to and cede to CoAL ownership in certain prospecting rights and interests over certain project areas ("Farms") that are contiguous to Coal's Makhado Hard Coking Coal Project located in the Limpopo Province. This is expected to add significant highly prospective acreage to the current project area and improve the economics of the proposed 5mtpa mining operation planned to commence in June 2009;

*Chapudi and CoaL to enter into a joint venture agreement in respect of prospecting rights over certain Farms owned by CoaL and Chapudi in the northern part of the Limpopo Province. It has been agreed that Chapudi will be the operator of the joint venture and both companies believe that the area is likely to contain a significant coal resource; and

*In return for the prospecting rights over Farms that Chapudi will cede to CoAL as described in 1 above, the company will cede to Chapudi prospecting rights and interests over certain other Farms, also located in the Limpopo Province.

This rationalisation of Farms owned by Chapudi and CoAL provides significant benefits to both companies in terms of bringing the collective properties into commercial production.
