ANNOUNCEMENT                                      6 September 2018

 HEADS OF AGREEMENTS FOR THE MAKHADO PROJECT FUNDING AND ASSOCIATED
                      EPC AND MINING CONTRACTS

MC Mining Limited (“MC Mining” or the “Company”) has signed Heads of
Agreements (“HOAs”) with leading international Chinese construction
enterprise, China Railway International Group Co., Ltd. (“CRIG”). CRIG
is the international focused division of China Railway Group, a
leading global construction company listed in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Under the terms of the HOAs, the Company and CRIG have agreed to
negotiate a package that comprises the engineering, procurement and
construction (“EPC”) for the Makhado hard coking and thermal coal
project (“Makhado Project”) coal handling and processing plant,
financing for 85% of the EPC costs and contract mining operations,
conditional upon the finalisation of terms and conditions by June
2019. These include completion of the Makhado front end engineering
and design study and agreement on the EPC contract price by both
parties, as well as appropriate funding provided on acceptable terms.

The development of the Makhado Project is expected to facilitate
economic growth in the Limpopo province and the Company will keep the
market appraised on further progress with regards to the ongoing
discussions with CRIG. Off-take discussions for hard coking and export
thermal coal production from Makhado are ongoing with various parties.

David Brown, CEO commented:
“This is an extremely positive move as it represents international
recognition for the world class nature of the Makhado Project.”
