         Interim Statement at 30 September 2005 and Operational Review


Chairman's Statement

As the Company has extended its period-end to 31 March 2006, your Board has
issued a Second Interim Statement to shareholders for the twelve months to 30
September 2005.


Result for the period

During the twelve month period under the review, the Group returned a loss of
£227,089 as compared with a loss of £164,231 in the eighteen month period to 30
September 2004.


Operational Review

The Company has reviewed all of its data from the Manica Project, its gold
project in Mozambique and has established a resource of some 800,000 oz (5.3 mts
@ 4.84 g/t average grade).   This resource derives from the investigation of 2.4
km out of the total 22 kms currently targeted. The Company believes that there
is an excellent further opportunity for resource expansion within the 22kms.
The company has engaged an independent consultant to audit this resource with a
view to commencing a feasibility study in the near future.

The Wa Project in Ghana is also subject to review and the Board anticipates that
the results will be released early in the New Year.

On 5 October 2005, the company announced that it had acquired a position in the
Central African Republic (CAR).   This position is substantial and is in two of
the four recognised Major Green Stone Belts of the CAR.   The Company's joint
venture licences contain a number of shallow intercepts with the most promising
two being 19 m @ 17.38 g/t and 20 m of 5.05 g/t.

Pan African has carried out an extensive geochemical programme, the data from
which is currently being reviewed.  Once the assay results are available and
interpreted they will be released to the market, which your Board anticipates
will also be early in the New Year.

The Company is building on its already significant position in the CAR and the
Board has an optimistic view of the potential for future gold discovery.


Outlook

There is a general market view that the gold price will remain strong and to
this end the company believes that its explorations are of the type which could
lead to low cost/high margin operations.  With this in mind, the company will
advance its feasibility study in Mozambique and accelerate its exploration
programme in the CAR to target the exploitation of the low cost/high margin
model.

The company has consolidated its overall position during the period under review
and together with asset acquisition in the CAR, the Board is confident that the
coming year will see significant advances in the company's mission to enhance
shareholder value.


By Order of the Board
