                               Confirmation Of Chairman's Statement

The Directors of IMC Exploration Group Plc have been advised of the contents of a newspaper
article which purports to challenge the validity of the Chairman's statement incorporated within
the Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 30th June 2012 as previously circulated to
investors. In response to this article in the Sunday Business Post the company would like to
reassure investors that the Board of Directors stand by the former Chairman's statement as being
accurate in all respects. In addition, the Board would like to assure shareholders that the
Chairman's statement was signed by then Chairman Hugh Gibney at a board meeting held on May 20th
last which was attended by the Auditors.

Furthermore, the board wishes to confirm that the Financial Statements in respect of the year
ended 30th June 2013 have not been released or sent out to any shareholders as they have not yet
been finalised by the auditors, reviewed by the board or signed by either directors on behalf of
the company or by the auditors. The holding announcement issued to the GXG Markets of 29th
November 2013 regarding their submission to the Market remains correct and accurate.

The Directors of the issuer accept responsibility for this announcement.
