Results of placing of 5,544,371 new ordinary shares at a placing price of 180 pence per share

Anglo Pacific Group PLC ("Anglo Pacific" or the "Company") (LSE: APF) (TSX: APY) is pleased to announce the completion of the placing announced earlier today (the "Placing").

A total of 5,544,371 new ordinary shares of 2 pence each in Anglo Pacific (the "Placing Shares") have been placed by Barclays Bank PLC and BMO Capital Markets Limited at a price of 180 pence per Placing Share, raising gross proceeds of approximately £10 million (US$16.7 million). The Placing Shares being issued represent approximately 5.0 per cent. of the Company's issued ordinary share capital prior to the Placing.

The Placing Shares will, when issued, be credited as fully paid and will rank equally in all respects with the existing ordinary shares of 2 pence each in the capital of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid in respect of such shares after the date of issue of the Placing Shares.

Application will be made to the Financial Conduct Authority for admission of the Placing Shares to the premium listing segment of the Official List and to the London Stock Exchange (the "LSE") for admission to trading of the Placing Shares on the LSE's main market for listed securities (together "Admission"). It is expected that Admission will take place at 8:00 a.m. on June 5, 2014 (at which time the Placing will become unconditional) and that dealings in the Placing Shares on the LSE's main market for listed securities will commence at the same time. An application to the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") has been made to list the Placing Shares.
