  3. 3. I. Coal Facts ● Almost half of the world’s additional energy demand over the past 10 years was provided by coal 3Source: IEA World Energy Outlook 2011
  4. 4. ● Coal provides 30% of global primary energy needs ● Coal-fired power plants generate 41% of the world’s electricity (more than any other fuel) ● Coal is a vital resource for industry as needed to produce 68% of the world’s steel 4Source: BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2011 I.

  6. 6. II. Lessons from Other Coal Markets ● Coal provides a significant direct contribution to economic development at local level, particularly in developing countries – Source of foreign hard currency earnings (from coal export) – Way to save import costs ● Energy is central to sustainable development and poverty reduction efforts – Millennium Development Goals are not fully achievable without clean, reliable and affordable energy from coal 6
  7. 7. II. Lessons from Other Coal Markets 7 Example from Hunter Valley, Australia ● Australian coal mining is now a blend of both the traditional extractive industry and the new era of high- tech knowledge-based economic activities ● Coal mining helps make Singleton - in the geographic heart of the Hunter Valley - one of Australia's richest locations: – Average wage is A$48,000 – Contributes A$2.5 billion from coal, tourism and other industries to the economy – Population 22,500
  8. 8. III. Key Factors for a Sustainable World Class Coal Mining Industry Sustainable coal mining means mining coal safely, profitably and in socially and environmentally responsible ways, over a long period of time so that the resource benefits not just this generation, but generations to come as well. Industry and company responsibilities to meet this goal: ● Adhere to world class standards and techniques in safety, operations, environment and social responsibility ● Ensure the right mix of expertise, leadership, management, reputation and financing ● Ensure best in class techniques to increase productivity and resource recovery ● Continue advancing clean coal technologies ● Extract greater value from coals through coal conversion 8
  9. 9. Government’s responsibility: ● Provide a predictable, stable, and smart policy framework. Both on the regulatory and tax policy aspects so as to guide development and use of coal to reduce electricity production costs and minimize environmental pollution ● Develop an infrastructure platform such that several reserves and deposits can leverage this in order to avoid duplication and minimize the environmental footprint ● Encourage through incentives a healthy relationship between government, private sector, suppliers and contractors across the value chain, universities and research institutes, and labor unions ● Ensure benefits flow to the community and GoM budget should invest more in public goods that benefit all levels of the population 9 III.

Key Factors for a Sustainable World Class Coal Mining Industry
  11. 11. IV. Peabody’s Best Practices in Coal Mining 11 OVERVIEW • The world’s largest private-sector coal company (129 years record) o 251 million tons sold in 2011 o $8 billion in revenues o 9 billion tons of coal reserves o 27 billion tons of international resources • Industry leaders for 40+ years • Customers on six continents • 30 mines (Surface/underground; U.S. and Australia) • Recognized globally for achievements in safety, productivity and environmental excellence • Large-scale open-cut mining expertise • Significant financial strength • Historically recognized as “Fortune’s Most Admired” and “Forbes 400 Platinum List” company
  12. 12. Peabody’s Approach to Coal Resource Development ● Peabody has core competencies to share with global partners: – Best-in-class safety practices – World-class mining expertise – Proven record of environmental stewardship – Record of safety, environmental and corporate leadership – Global leadership in clean coal solutions ● Sharing these competencies could have significant benefits for Mongolia: – Improved safety practices – Better utilization and recovery of resources – Greater energy supply reliability – More efficient methods of production – Adoption of latest mining technologies – Enhanced environmental preservation and sustainability in a local area and communities 12

  14. 14. World Class Open-Cut Mining Expertise ● Peabody is the largest producer of open-cut mined coal in North America – 89% of Peabody’s volumes sold were from open-cut mines – 148 million tons were produced from Peabody’s three mines in the Southern Powder River Basin – 20 open-cut mines in operation globally ● Peabody optimizes production using multiple mining methods – Cast blasting – Draglines with dozer assist – Truck and shovel with dozer assist ● Surface operations typically recover 90% to 96% of the coal resource ● Open-cut mines in the U.S. are commercially viable and competitive at stripping ratios of up to 20:1 14
  15. 15. World Class Underground Mining Expertise ● Approximately 11% of Peabody’s tons sold are from 10 underground mines ● Peabody utilizes a wide range of underground mining methods, depending on the geology: – Longwall mining – Continuous miners with battery or cable shuttle cars for longwall development – Continuous miner “super sections,” i.e., two continuous miners and four to seven battery cars for room and pillar mining – Mobile roof supports and continuous miners for pillar extraction ● Peabody extracts coal from underground seams ranging in thickness from 40 inches to 12 feet ● Peabody strives for maximum resource recovery and coal preparation plan yields with results dependent on geology and customer requirements – Peabody is the largest user of ash analyzers to monitor and blend coal quality among coal companies in North America – Peabody uses proprietary software to monitor, optimize and blend coal qualities 15

Global Leadership in Advancing Clean Coal Solutions Peabody’s objectives: ● Work to eliminate energy poverty by ensuring that at least half of new generation is fuelled by coal ● Replace 1,000 gigawatts of traditional coal plants with efficient, advanced coal technologies ● Develop at least 100 major Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) projects around the world within the next ten years. This complements the International Energy Association’s goal of deploying more than 2,000 projects by mid-century ● Deploy significant coal-to-gas, coal-to-chemicals and coal-to-liquids projects globally in the next decade, reducing our overdependence on oil and natural gas ● Commercialize next generation of clean coal technologies to achieve near-zero emissions 18
