                  Cancellation of admission to trading on AIM                  

The board of Continental Coal Limited (ASX:CCC; AIM:COOL)("Continental" or "the
Company") refers to its corporate update announcement dated 10 October advising
that it has been presented with offers from third parties interested in
acquiring its 74% interest in its South African subsidiary Continental Coal
Limited SA ("CCL SA"). The Board is finalising legal advice with regards to a
scenario whereby an accepted offer is announced and Shareholders are then
offered the opportunity to have their funds returned from the Rights Issue,
remain in a new raising by way of a supplementary prospectus or participate in
the new raising given the change in circumstances which some Shareholders may
want to participate in as opposed to the previous Rights Issue. As a
consequence of this development, Continental has deferred finalising the
completion of any refinancing of the Company through the current Rights Issue

Given the timetable for completion of the refinancing or sale of the Company's
74% interest in CCL SA, the Company is unable to restore its securities to
trading on AIM in the immediate short term.  As the Company's securities have
also been suspended from trading on AIM for over six months, under the
requirements of Rule 41 of the AIM Rules for Companies Continental's admission
to trading on AIM will be cancelled, effective 7am Wednesday, 15 October 2014.

Appropriate arrangements will be made for all security holders whose securities
are currently traded as Depository Interests on AIM to be registered on the
Company's Australian register of members and for them to be able to trade their
securities on the ASX when reinstatement post recapitalisation occurs. The
Company's registrar, Computershare Investor Services Pty Ltd, will write to all
Depository Interest holders to advise as to the process for the termination of
Depository Interests.

In the meantime however, if any of those security holders have any questions
they should contact the Company's Registrar, Computershare Investor Services
Pty Ltd.

For and on behalf of the Board

Peter Landau
Executive Director
