  • 2. DisclaimerForward Looking StatementThis presentation contains certain “forward-looking statements” and “forward-looking information” under applicable Canadian securities laws concerning the business, operationsand financial performance and condition of Pacific Coal, S.A. Forward-looking statements and forward-looking information include, but are not limited to, statements with respectto business plans and strategies of Pacific Coal; information with respect to the proposed subscription receipt financing of Pacific Coal; estimated production of the various projectsof Pacific Coal; the benefits of the acquisitions and the development potential of properties of Pacific Coal; the future price of coal; estimates regarding mineralization andexploration results; the ability of Pacific Coal to achieve mining success consistent with management’s expectations; and expected levels of royalty rates, operating costs, and othercosts and expenses. Undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking statements, which are inherently uncertain, are based on estimates and assumptions, and are subjectto known and unknown risks and uncertainties (both general and specific) that contribute to the possibility that the future events or circumstances contemplated by the forward-looking statements will not occur. There can be no assurance that the plans, intentions or expectations upon which forward-looking statements are based will in fact be realized.Actual results will differ, and the difference may be material and adverse to the Corporation and its shareholders.All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as“anticipate”, “believe”, “could”, “estimate”, “expect”, “forecast”, “guidance”, “intend”, “may”, “plan”, “predict”, “project”, “should”, “target”, “will”, or similar words suggestingfuture outcomes or language suggesting an outlook. Forward looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of management at the date the statements are made, aswell as a number of assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Corporation concerning, among other things, Pacific Coal’s ability to successfully complete theproposed subscription receipt financing; anticipated geological, operational and financial performance, business prospects, strategies, regulatory developments, future commodityprices, future production levels of the Corporation’s assets, the ability to obtain financing on acceptable terms, the timely receipt of any required approvals and that there will be nosignificant events occurring outside of Pacific Coal’s normal course of business. Although management considers these assumptions to be reasonable based on informationcurrently available to it, they may prove to be incorrect. Factors that could cause actual results to vary materially from results anticipated by such forward-looking statementsinclude changes in market conditions, risks relating to international operations, fluctuating coal prices and currency exchange rates, changes in project parameters, the possibility ofproject cost overruns or unanticipated costs and expenses, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry, failure of equipment or processes to operate as anticipated, andacquisitions not being integrated successfully or such integration proving more difficult, time consuming or costly than expected. Although Pacific Coal has attempted to identifyimportant factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that causeactions, events or results not to be anticipated, estimated or intended. Pacific Coal undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking statements if circumstances ormanagement’s estimates or opinions should change except as required by applicable securities laws.This presentation uses the terms “measured”, “indicated”, and/or “inferred” mineral resources. United States investors are advised that while such terms are recognized byCanadian regulations, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. Unites States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part ofmineral resources will ever be converted into mineral reserves. Inferred mineral resources have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and as to their economic andlegal 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 inferredmineral 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 an inferred mineralresource exists, or is economically or legally mineable. 1

  • 18. La Tigra’s Asphaltite ProfileAsphaltites are species of bitumen, dark-colored, comparatively hardand non-volatile solids, composed principally of hydrocarbons. GilsoniteAs of today in the La Tigra area, there is evidence for the presence oftwo different types of asphaltite: Grahamite and Gilsonite.Management expects a significant resource at La Tigra to be confirmedwith a National Instrument 43-101 compliant report – physicalevidence on outcrops, oil seeps and 3 mines already in production inthe area lead to optimistic forecasts on the existence of importantasphaltite reserves. GrahamiteLocation of La Tigra: • 80 km from BarrancabermejaArea: • 5,700 hectaresOperations: • Initial exploration drilling, mapping, trenching and geophysics commenced June 2011 with the objective of a NI 43-101 compliant report by Q1/2012 La Tigra outcrop • Production start planned for late-2012Infrastructure: • 70 km from Bucaramanga with paved roads between Bucaramanga and San Alberto • 80 km from Barrancabermeja, the centre for petroleum refining and a port on the Magdalena River 17

  • 20. CAW/CCW Emissions AbatementThe technologies being developed by Blue ACF have emissions abatement opportunities embedded in the R&D SO2 The abatement of these emissions is usually achieved using Flue Gas Desulfurization technologies (`FGD`) The key component is the limestone-based reaction (or calcium carbonate) as it removes SO2 from the flue gases to produce calcium sulfate or gypsum, a non-emission causing element  CAW with this limestone-based component will make this fuel less detrimental to the atmosphere than other heavy fuels NO2 The abatement of NO2 is achieved by re-burning: re-burning is a NO2 staged combustion control technique that suppresses the formation of NO2 in burners and then provides for additional NO2 reduction in the furnace area of the boiler Blue ACF is currently developing a new scheme to further reduce SO2 and NO2 emissions 19
