  1. 1. A Forbes & Manhattan Group Company Corporate Presentation September 2013TSX/JSE : FMC GROWING COAL PRODUCER IN SOUTHERN AFRICA
  2. 2. 2 TSX/JSE : FMC Disclaimer This presentation contains forward-looking statements under Canadian securities legislation. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to the development potential and timetable of the Magdelena and Aviemore projects; the Company’s ability to raise additional funds as necessary; the future price of coal; the estimation of mineral resources; conclusions of economic evaluations (including scoping studies); the realization of mineral resource estimates; the timing and amount of estimated future production, development and exploration; costs of future activities; capital and operating expenditures; success of exploration activities; mining or processing issues; currency exchange rates; government regulation of mining operations; and environmental risks. Generally, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “plans”, “expects” or “does not expect”, “is expected”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates” or “does not anticipate”, or “believes”, or variations of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved”. Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of management as of the date such statements are made. Estimates regarding the anticipated timing, amount and cost of mining at the Company’s projects are based on assumptions underlying mineral resource estimates and the realization of such estimates; results of previous mining activities at the projects, and detailed research and analysis completed by independent consultants and management of the Company; research and estimates regarding the timing of delivery for long-lead items; and knowledge regarding certain factors described in the technical report filed under the profile of the Company on SEDAR. Capital and operating cost estimates are based on results of previous mining activities, research of the Company and independent consultants. Production estimates are based on mine plans and production schedules, which have been developed by the Company’s personnel and independent consultants. Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward looking statements, including but not limited to risks related to: timing and availability of external financing on acceptable terms; unexpected events and delays during construction, expansion and start-up; variations in ore grade and recovery rates; receipt and revocation of government approvals; actual results of exploration and mining activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of coal; failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; accidents, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry. Although management of the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. The Company does not undertake to update any forward-looking statements except in accordance with applicable securities laws. Investors are advised that National Instrument NI 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators (“NI 43-101”) requires that each category of mineral reserves and mineral resources be reported separately. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Johan Odendaal, B.Sc.(Geol.), B.Sc.(Hons)(Min. Econ.), M.Sc. (Min. Eng.), a director of Minxcon and an independent Qualified Person, as defined in National Instrument 43-101 has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information contained in this presentation. Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors Concerning Estimates of Measured, Indicated or Inferred Resources The information presented uses the terms “measured”, “indicated” and “inferred” mineral resources. United States investors are advised that while such terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize these terms. “Inferred mineral resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of measured or indicated mineral resources will ever be converted into mineral reserves. United States investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable.

  20. 20. 20 TSX/JSE : FMC Strategy and Business Plan Magdalena • Increasing productivity and production capacity through operational efficiency initiatives; • Achieve saleable production of 845,000 for the year; • Investigate regional possibilities for the relocation of the opencast at the end of the current extension; • Generate pitroom for future mining expansion; • Increase wash plant recovery rates from the current level of 62% by improved efficiencies of wash plant by using density control; • Investigate product upgrade potential. Aviemore • Achieve saleable production of 300,000 tonnes for the year; • Progress exploration and feasibility study for the expansion of1 million ROM tonnes per year producer. Improve operational efficiencies by: • Further develop management team with international experience; • Explore opportunities to increase sales and exports;
  21. 21. 21 TSX/JSE : FMC New Opportunities Where? • Forbes Coal to stay focused on Southern Africa. Most of the coals in Southern Africa can be washed to produce an acceptable export thermal product. • Lack of both infrastructure and investment are the main reasons why production and exports remain constrained. • The countries that are viewed to have the best potential for coal projects are South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Swaziland. • Opportunities have already been reviewed in most of the Southern African countries How? • Acquisitions – currently reviewing • Farm in options – currently reviewing one opportunity • Licence applications • Outright acquisitions preferable for operational assets and advanced projects • Farm in options help mitigate against the risk of huge capital outlay. This is the preferred entry opportunity for exploration projects • Licence applications will only work in countries with robust and transparent licence frameworks (e.g Botswana, Mozambique)
