Pan African announces that as a result of an exercise of share options by Mr
Jan Nelson, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, the Company issued
12,000,000 ordinary shares of 1p each (`Shares') on 28 February 2008 at a price
of 2p per Share.

Application has been made to the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange
(`AIM') and the Alternative Exchange of the JSE Limited (`Altx') for 12,000,000
Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and listed on Altx (`Admission').
Admission is expected to occur on 7 March 2008.

Mr Nelson also notified the Company that on 28 February 2008 he placed
9,000,000 Shares at a price of 6p per Share with an institutional investor with
the proceeds raised partly to pay for the tax arising on the disposal and the
cost of exercise.

acquire 6,000,000 Shares.
