ANNOUNCEMENT                                                                 13 July 2021


TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF COLLIERY OPERATIONS


MC Mining Limited (“MC Mining” or the “Company") advises operations at its 70% owned Uitkomst
colliery have been temporary suspended pending resolution of the civil unrest which has spread
throughout the KwaZulu-Natal province in South Africa. The violence has been reportedly linked to
the recent imprisonment of former President Jacob Zuma.

Unfortunately, protests, road blockages, and attacks targeting transport vehicles have been reported
across KwaZulu-Natal, including the towns and communities where the majority of the Uitkomst mine
employees and contractors reside.

MC Mining’s interim CEO, Sam Randazzo, commented:
“Our first priority is the safety of our employees and contractors and we have taken this immediate
action to protect their well being. Temporarily halting the colliery operations should also discourage
activists from entering the Uitkomst site.”

“Authorities have deployed security forces to areas where protests are occurring, and we remain
hopeful of a speedy resolution so that our employees and contractors can return to work and for
recommencement of operations at the Uitkomst colliery.”

The current situation remains fluid and Company management continue to carefully monitor
developments. Market updates will be provided as and when the situation changes.
