Shareholders are advised of a fall of ground at Buffalo’s Magdalena underground mine in South Africa’s
Kwa-Zulu Natal Province. No employees were affected by the incident, and the partial loss of raw coal
production is anticipated to be less than two weeks.

The fall of ground occurred in a worked out area of the mine which was being used as an access way for
conveying of coal from two of the four production sections to surface. The fall of ground has
necessitated that the Company accelerate its planned relocation of a portion of the conveyor
infrastructure to a new surface access adit. This adit was recently established for that purpose and has
been used for several months already for the transport of working crews to the two underground
sections. The new adit has been designed to significantly shorten the underground infrastructure to
surface and installation of the new conveyor belt infrastructure has progressed well and is anticipated to
be completed within this week.

The other sections at Magdalena continue to produce well, and as a result of good production over the
past two months, the company has sufficient stock available to service customers during the short
period of reduced production.
