In addition, following the Company's acquisition of Inter-Invest Coal LLC in 2012, EastCoal is developing and increasing production from the Menzhinsky Coal Mine. This is an operating underground metallurgical coal mine also located on the Eastern side of Ukraine.

John Byrne, Chairman of EastCoal Inc. said: "Coal production from the Donbass basin in eastern Ukraine historically produced approximately 70% of the Russian Empire's coal rising to 200mtpa in the 1970s. Since this period the region has seen a decline in investment to the extent that Ukraine has had to import up to 11mt of coal per annum. In 2009 EastCoal recognized the opportunity created by privatisation and restructuring initiatives from the Ukrainian Government resulting in the Company becoming the first external player in a region of significant coal reserves. The Company has acquired and is developing two near term producing projects to meet the growing domestic and export demands for both the power and steel industries."
Abraham Jonker, Director and President of EastCoal Inc., commented: "I am pleased to announce commencement of trading of the Company's shares on AIM. This decision was largely driven by increased investor interest from the United Kingdom. I am confident that the experienced management team that we have assembled, combined with the highly attractive project fundamentals would render our projects an extremely exciting opportunity for investors."

Overview of the Company
EastCoal Inc. is a mineral development company registered in British Columbia and engaged in the acquisition and development of mineral resource properties. Since 2009, the Company has been focused on the development of coal mining interests in Ukraine.
East Coal Company LLC, a 100%-owned subsidiary of EastCoal Inc., obtained the rights to the Verticalnaya Mine and is currently advancing the development of this anthracite mine, targeting production in the first quarter of 2013. In addition, following the Company's acquisition of Inter-Invest Coal LLC ("Inter-Invest") in the second quarter of 2012, EastCoal is developing and increasing production from the Menzhinsky Mine. This is an operating underground metallurgical coal mine also located on the Eastern side of Ukraine. With the addition of the New Wash Plant at the Menzhinsky Mine, production is expected to increase from approximately 6,000 tonnes per month currently, to 26,000 tonnes per month during 2013.
The Company's objective is to increase total production from the current level to approximately three million saleable coal tonnes per annum.
The Company's principal assets include the Verticalnaya and Menzhinsky Mines:
EastCoal obtained the rights to the Verticalnaya Mine in 2009 from the Ukrainian Government. It had been an operating coal mine until 1998 when production ceased and the mine was placed in care and maintenance. The quality of its coal seams is well defined by the results of various drilling programmes and previous extraction work. EastCoal's development strategy is to develop two seams, H11 and H11B from two new surface drifts at Verticalnaya North Project ("VNP"), which will provide the mine with its early production and cash flow. At the same time the Company will rehabilitate the existing mine infrastructure to provide access to the H8 seam. The rehabilitation process will include dewatering and recovery of certain roadways in the mine and investment in certain infrastructure upgrades.
In October 2010, following a period of planning, permitting, and detailed improvements, the Company commenced construction of the VNP, developing the main access drifts and initial gate road access for coal production from the first longwall panel, East 1. East 1 will be 150 metres in length and will be extracted at a working height of 1.1 metres. It is planned to commence production from East 1 in the first quarter of 2013. To date, more than 2,000 meters of drift and roadway development has been completed at VNP.
Production from the H8 seam via the existing mine is scheduled to commence in 2018. The Verticalnaya mine and VNP is projected to produce in aggregate approximately 2.3 million tonnes per annum of saleable high quality anthracite for local and export markets when fully ramped up by 2019 continuing at approximately that level until 2023, and thereafter reducing over time until the end of the current mine plan in 2029.
Since 1998, the Menzhinsky Mine has been in limited operation and currently produces approximately 6,000 tonnes per month of coking coal.
The Company acquired Inter-Invest, the company leasing the Menzhinsky Mine, on 31 May 2012 following a private placement in the UK and Canada which raised aggregate gross proceeds of approximately CAD$17.01 million. Net proceeds from the private placing have been used, inter alia, to complete construction of the 350 tonne per hour New Wash Plant which commenced commissioning and production in October 2012.
The New Wash Plant is currently focused on processing coal from the Company's existing waste tip. The initial processing of waste from Waste Tip No. 4 has shown a 10 per cent. coal content and initial analysis indicates that reprocessing the tip is economically viable.
The Company expects to increase total production from Menzhinsky from the current level of approximately 6,000 tonnes per month to 26,000 tonnes per month during 2013.
As the underground mining is developed, and further longwalls are introduced, the planned tonnage is projected to increase year on year to reach the design capacity run of mine tonnage of one million tonnes per year.
The Company's business and operations require specialised skills and knowledge in the areas of geology, drilling, logistical planning and implementation of extraction programmes, treasury and accounting. The Company has these abilities through its management, consultants and contractors. The Board has extensive experience in successfully developing mines and has a strong knowledge of the region. To date, the Company has been successful in hiring and retaining employees and consultants with the required skills and believes it will continue to be able to do so as it seeks to develop each of the Verticalnaya Mine and the Menzhinsky Mine.
Skills needed for financing activities, which will be critical to the implementation of the Company's strategy, are available through the Board and management. The composition of the Board has changed in the past two years, bringing significant experience in the financing of coal projects as well as technical and management skills in developing coal projects.

Reasons for the Placing, Admission and Use of Proceeds
The Directors believe that Admission will be an important step in the Group's development and will provide a platform from which to grow the business in the future. Admission is expected to provide additional liquidity for investors in the Company's shares and will enable the Group to attract, retain and incentivise its Directors and key employees through the operation of the Share Option Schemes.
In addition, Admission will potentially provide the Group with access to further capital in the future, should the Directors identify new acquisition opportunities which meet the Group's strategic objectives. The Company has adopted a mining plan designed to increase production at its mines. The fulfilment of that plan will require the Group to secure further external funding (in addition to the Placing Proceeds) as the mines are developed and production is increased. Such funds would be needed in order to finance further capital expenditure, for example, additional longwalls and improved processing facilities as production increases.
The Directors intend to introduce continued improvements and efficiencies to current mining practices in order to enhance the cash generative activities at the Menzhinsky Mine. The Directors will focus on optimising return from the New Wash Plant over the near term and will only commence construction of the Verticalnaya longwall once they are satisfied that the wash plant is operating sustainably at a satisfactory level.
Further investment in capital expenditure for the development of additional longwalls will be made only once the Directors are satisfied sufficient funds are available. In the event that the no further funds are available then aspects of the current mining plan would be deferred until such time as cash reserves were built up from the washing operations at Waste Tip No. 4 to fund additional plant on the terms then available.
The Placing proceeds and the proceeds of the Salida loan to be satisfied with the concurrent shares for debt settlement will be utilised as follows:
-- Capital Expenditure CAD$5.9 million; -- Repayment of debenture CAD$1.5 million; -- Working capital CAD$4.8 million; and -- Transaction fees CAD$2.9 million.
