  2. 2. 2TSX/JSE : FMCDisclaimerThis presentation contains forward-looking statements under Canadian securities legislation. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statementswith 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 resourceestimates; 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 orstatements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved”. Forward-looking statements arebased on the opinions and estimates of management as of the date such statements are made. Estimates regarding the anticipated timing, amount and cost ofmining at the Company’s projects are based on assumptions underlying mineral resource estimates and the realization of such estimates; results of previous miningactivities at the projects, and detailed research and analysis completed by independent consultants and management of the Company; research and estimatesregarding the timing of delivery for long-lead items; and knowledge regarding certain factors described in the technical report filed under the profile of theCompany on SEDAR. Capital and operating cost estimates are based on results of previous mining activities, research of the Company and independentconsultants. Production estimates are based on mine plans and production schedules, which have been developed by the Company’s personnel andindependent 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 miningactivities; 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 couldcause 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 fromthose anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. The Company does not undertake toupdate 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 andmineral 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 hasreviewed and approved the scientific and technical information contained in this presentation.Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors Concerning Estimates of Measured, Indicated or Inferred ResourcesThe information presented uses the terms “measured”, “indicated” and “inferred” mineral resources. United States investors are advised that while such terms arerecognized and required by Canadian regulations, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize these terms. “Inferred mineralresources” 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 aninferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis offeasibility or other economic studies. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of measured or indicated mineral resources will everbe 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 iseconomically or legally mineable.

  21. 21. 21TSX/JSE : FMCNew OpportunitiesWhere?• Forbes Coal to stay focused on Southern Africa. Most of the coals in Southern Africa can be washed toproduce an acceptable export thermal product.• Lack of both infrastructure and investment are the main reasons why production and exports remainconstrained.• 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 countriesHow?• 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 opportunityfor exploration projects• Licence applications will only work in countries with robust and transparent licence frameworks (e.gBotswana, Mozambique)
