Pacific coal june 2012_presentation1

  1. 1. Becoming Colombia’s Leading Independent Coal Producer June 2012 TSXV: PAK
  2. 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 respect tobusiness plans and strategies of Pacific Coal; information with respect to the proposed subscription receipt financing of Pacific Coal; estimated production of the various projects ofPacific Coal; the benefits of the acquisitions and the development potential of properties of Pacific Coal; the future price of coal; estimates regarding mineralization and explorationresults; the ability of Pacific Coal to achieve mining success consistent with management’s expectations; and expected levels of royalty rates, operating costs, and other costs andexpenses. Undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking statements, which are inherently uncertain, are based on estimates and assumptions, and are subject to knownand unknown risks and uncertainties (both general and specific) that contribute to the possibility that the future events or circumstances contemplated by the forward-lookingstatements 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. Actualresults 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”, “vision”, “will”, or similar wordssuggesting future outcomes or language suggesting an outlook. Forward looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of management at the date the statements aremade, as well as a number of assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Corporation concerning, among other things, Pacific Coal’s ability to successfullycomplete the proposed subscription receipt financing; anticipated geological, operational and financial performance, business prospects, strategies, regulatory developments, futurecommodity prices, future production levels of the Corporation’s assets, the ability to obtain financing on acceptable terms, the timely receipt of any required approvals and thatthere will be no significant events occurring outside of Pacific Coal’s normal course of business. Although management considers these assumptions to be reasonable based oninformation currently available to it, they may prove to be incorrect. Factors that could cause actual results to vary materially from results anticipated by such forward-lookingstatements include changes in market conditions, risks relating to international operations, fluctuating coal prices and currency exchange rates, changes in project parameters, thepossibility of project cost overruns or unanticipated costs and expenses, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry, failure of equipment or processes to operate asanticipated, and acquisitions not being integrated successfully or such integration proving more difficult, time consuming or costly than expected. Although Pacific Coal hasattempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be otherfactors that cause actions, events or results not to be anticipated, estimated or intended. Pacific Coal undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking statements ifcircumstances or management’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 by Canadianregulations, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. Unites States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of mineralresources 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 and legalfeasibility. 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 mineralresources 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 mineral resourceexists, or is economically or legally mineable. 2
  3. 3. Vision Explore, expand and develop existing producing assets to increase efficiencies, reserves and production, while securing infrastructure capacity to capture all aspects of the value chain Seek opportunities to secure access to markets and ensure commercial flexibility Foster a culture of citizenship and environmentally responsible stewardship Pacific Coal is on track to produce 2.0 Mt of thermal coal in 2012 The Company has a compelling portfolio of high quality producing assets:La Caypa (thermal coal)Cerro Largo (thermal coal)CI Jam (coke) Cerro Largo Mine 3

  16. 16. Port of BarranquillaInvesting in Long-Term Port Access for Coke Pacific Coal acquired a port concession situated on the Magdelena River near the Port of Barranquilla (approximately 5km from the Caribbean Sea) to be used to export coke, specialized coals, and bulk commodity products. Excess capacity at the port can be monetized by selling to other exporters Pacific Coal plans to tender for engineering, construction and procurement by Q2/2012, expecting to have an early start on coal loading operations with a provisional set-up for Q3/2012 Main features of the final proposed scheme:  Two portable shiploaders  A pile supported concrete berth with 12 m water depth  Portable Stacker  Coal/Coke piles BARRANQUILLA CONCESSION  Reclaim conveyor alongside the open stockpiles  Office/Maintenance building  FEL receiving hopper (rail mounted)  Overall average loading capacity of approximately 10,000 tonnes per day BARRANQUILLA CONCESSION 16
  17. 17. La Tigra – 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 beconfirmed with a National Instrument 43-101 compliant report –physical evidence on outcrops, oil seeps and 3 mines already inproduction in the area lead to optimistic forecasts on the existence of Grahamiteimportant asphaltite reserves.Location of La Tigra: • 80 km from BarrancabermejaArea: •5,700 hectaresOperations: • Geophysical, metalotelluric, and gravimetric studies are in progress; results expected Q3 2012 La Tigra outcrop • Production start planned for mid-2013Infrastructure: • 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
