                                                                          Market Update
     Resource Generation Limited (ASX:RES) (Resgen or Company) would like to provide
     an update on the funding status of its Boikarabelo Coal Mine in the Waterberg, South
     Africa (Project).

     The second member of the proposed Lending Syndicate (last referred to in ASX
     Announcements on 15 March and 1 April 2019) has formally confirmed participation
     (credit approval) for their proposed contribution to the Company’s funding application in
     relation to the construction of the Boikarabelo mine.

     The second member to the proposed Lending Syndicate has not provided approval to
     be named at this point as their offer to participate is not binding on the parties until
     formally accepted by the Company. This acceptance by the Company can only occur in
     the form of a Board approved common term sheet agreed with all members to the
     proposed Lending Syndicate.

     This is a positive development that should now facilitate completion of the project
     finance for the construction of the mine. However, investors are cautioned that there are
     still a number of hurdles to be overcome before the overall funding (Financial Close) is
     achieved. These further activities or approvals now include:

     -       securing requisite written approvals from the third and final member of the proposed
             Lending Syndicate;

-   agreement on a common term sheet for all Lenders as referred to above;

-   finalisation of the rail link funding which is now at an advanced stage and will also
    be assisted by this recent development;

-   Director’s approval (after evaluation of the finalised financial model) of a common
    term sheet together with the rail link funding terms and recommendation to
    Shareholders. At this time the terms will be binding on all parties and only subject
    to certain conditions precedent that are specified by the proposed Lenders. The
    Company will then be able to disclose the key terms of the mine and rail link funding
    packages to the market;

-   under the related party approval requirements of the ASX Listing Rules the
    proposed mine funding package will need to be put to Shareholders at an EGM (this
    will be one of the conditions precedent referred to above). The Notice of Meeting for
    such an EGM will need to include an Independent Expert’s Report addressed to
    Shareholders;

-   finalisation of remaining key Project related contracts and legacy contractual
    arrangements;

-   preparation of legal documents in relation to the proposed funding package; and

-   completion of all conditions precedent as specified by the proposed Lenders.

The Company will keep the market informed regarding further progress on project
funding in accordance with its continuous disclosure obligations.
