                            Pan African Resources plc
                        ('Pan African' or 'the Company')

               Final Results for the period ending 31 March 2006

                            PAN AFRICAN RESOURCES PLC
                                AND SUBSIDIARIES


During the period under review the Company incurred an operating loss of
£791,293 (2004: £164,231) representing a loss per share of 0.22p (2004: 0.09p).

A focused exploration strategy and mission to advance our projects along the
value curve has been responsible for the Company providing its Shareholders with
a high value portfolio. At the Manica gold project in Mozambique, a resource of
1,311Moz has been independently verified with a pre-feasibility study currently
underway to assess the viability of a surface gold mine. Major technical
progress has been made at this project for the period, and significant upside
potential exists with only some 12% of the potentially mineralised strike-length
being explored. In January 2006 the Company exercised its option to purchase an
80% effective stake in the project and this will be completed in the second
quarter of the current financial year.

In the Central African Republic the Company is well positioned, holding
extensive ground with good gold potential covering some 4000km(2). The
exploration programmes at the Bogoin and Dekoa gold projects has been designed
with the specific goal of testing for gold deposits larger than 2Moz in size. To
date a gold-in-soil anomaly 12km in strike-length has been delineated. Some of
the historical boreholes drilled within the identified anomaly returned high
gold values, some as high as 20m @ 5.05g/t and 19m @ 17.38g/t.

The projects in the Central African Republic are a joint venture with
International Mining Investments and Goldiam SARL. Pan African commenced with an
equal contributory interest of 45% to that of International Mining Investments,
but has the option on a further 20% to take its effective stake to 65% upon
project development. Pan African has operational control and manages the
exploration programme on behalf of the joint venture.

Participation in the Wa project in Ghana has been terminated after our initial
exploration programme. Consequently expenditure incurred on this project has
been written off.

Our projects in general have the scope to deliver significant returns with the
possibility of near term production combined with the considerable upside
potential evident in the Central African Republic.

The AIM market has been a major source of funding for global resource explorers
despite competition for funding being high.  The Company has recently raised
£1.7 million which is adequate for the company to maintain its current
exploration programmes.

The outlook for gold appears promising against a weakening dollar, rising oil
prices and global political tension. In recognition of this advancing Manica to
development and resource identification in the Central African Republic remains
our immediate objective.

The Company will maintain its acquisition policy aimed at securing gold deposits
with exceptional upside value in areas of Africa not well explored but
considered to be favourable both technically and politically.

I would like to thank my fellow directors and staff for their hard work during
the period and particular thanks to Jan Nelson, our Chief Executive Officer, for
his tireless efforts to raise the Company's profile both in the markets and in
the industry.
