Narrabri production guidance FY2016

Anglo Pacific Group PLC ("Anglo Pacific", or the "Company") (LSE: APF, TSX: APY), the London and Toronto listed royalty company, is pleased to provide an update on its Narrabri royalty following the release of Whitehaven Coal Limited's ("Whitehaven") (ASX: WHC) Full Year to 30 June 2015 Results. 

Whitehaven has announced its guidance for Run of Mine ("ROM") coal production for the next fiscal year at the Narrabri North mine to be 6.6 Mt to 6.8 Mt.

Julian Treger, Chief Executive Officer of Anglo Pacific, commented:
"We are encouraged by Whitehaven's production guidance for FY2016 which is a testament to Whitehaven's management, who have delivered one of the most productive and lowest cost underground longwall coal mines in Australia. The expected coal production for next year is above the 6.5 Mt of ROM coal production that Anglo Pacific had assumed at the time of the royalty acquisition. This royalty continues to exceed our expectations."
