CanAm Sells a Record 67,500 Tons in July 2013, a 20% Increase Over the Average Monthly Sales of 56,000 Tons in Q2

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Aug. 26, 2013) - CanAm Coal Corp. (TSX VENTURE:COE)(OTCQX:COECF) ("CanAm" or the "Company") is pleased to report preliminary coal sales for the month of July 2013 of approximately 67,500 tons. This establishes another record for the Company and represents a 10% increase over June sales of approximately 61,500 tons. With initial mine development and transition now completed, monthly production/sales from the Company's four mines should be between 60,000 to 70,000 tons per month. This represents a substantial increase from average actual Q1 and Q2 sales of approximately 50,000 and 56,000, respectively.

Company President and CEO, Jos De Smedt commented: "We are extremely pleased with our July production/sales results as the hard work of our team to transition from mine development to steady state production has resulted in another record month in the history of our Company. With all of our mines now in full production mode and all of this production fully contracted for by our customers, we have a great start to the second half of 2013.

The Company is expected to release its second quarter full financial results at the end of August 2013.
