Preliminary Results

                                   (AIM: GCM)

                        FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2007

This year has seen GCM develop as a company. Even though it has been a period of
uncertainty regarding the Phulbari Coal Project, it has also been an exciting
period with new additions to the Company's portfolio. The development of the
Phulbari Coal Project has been delayed following the Government's failure to
date to approve the Scheme of Development.

The many dynamic changes to the national political situation have placed a
strain on the investment climate in Bangladesh.  Under the terms of the
Bangladesh Constitution the Bangladesh National Party (BNP) Government handed
over to a caretaker government in October 2006 with the expectation that there
would be an election within three months.  The main opposition party decided in
January this year to boycott the election, precipitating country-wide unrest.
This ultimately led to a state of emergency being declared and a new caretaker
government being appointed.  At this stage the election is now planned before
the end of 2008.

While the political situation remains uncertain, there is general optimism in
the business community that the policy makers will address the critical issues
facing the country today, including the key issue of energy and power supply.
Despite these setbacks and the tragic events that occurred at Phulbari in August
2006 we remain committed to working with the Government to find an acceptable
and harmonious way to implement the exciting Phulbari Coal Project for the
benefit of the people of Bangladesh and our shareholders and all other

description of the Phulbari Coal Project in Bangla.


The Group made a loss of £1,254,000 after tax for the twelve months to 30 June
2007 (June 2006: loss of £520,000). The increased loss was as a consequence of
an £833,000 charge to earnings due to a new accounting policy with the
introduction of FRS20.

Exploration expenditure relating to the Phulbari Coal Project amounted to
£3,286,000 for the twelve months (June 2006: £7,643,000). The Group completed
the feasibility study and reduced activity while awaiting approval from the
Government of Bangladesh to proceed with the next stage of the Phulbari Coal
