                                 FINAL RESULTS                                 

                    FOR THE PERIOD ENDED 30 SEPTEMBER 2004                     


Dear Shareholder

This is Pan African Resources plc's (Pan African) first Annual Report since the
acquisition of the two exploration subsidiaries and re-admission to trading on
AIM on the 8th September 2004.


The group has a focused mission for gold exploration in Africa and commenced
trading with two advancing projects in Mozambique and Ghana. The Mozambique
project, Manica, is in an industry recognised gold area and on acquisition had
significant gold values in mineralisations outlined by drill holes in its West
Fair Bride project area. The Ghana project (Wa Project) in the northern part of
the country also has an inferred resource of some 370,000 ounces of gold with
significant upside potential.

Since the re-admission to AIM further exploration and reverse circulation
drilling has taken place on both projects and as announced previously the group
has significantly increased its information base of the project areas.

In the Manica project drill assay results have not yet been received.

On the Wa project previously discovered areas have been further drill tested
for infill and extensions both at depth and along strike. Some significant
intersections have been obtained including 10 meters @ 6.44 g/t gold (including
4 meters @ 14.25 g/t gold) and 7meters @ 9.93 g/t gold ( including 4 meters @
16.47 g/t gold).

The Wa Project Collette property which has only been superficially tested
indicates major potential and is currently the site of exploration drilling to
test this potential.

Despite some negative pressure on the gold price including suggestions that the
US Dollar may strengthen and potential IMF gold sales, the metal has remained
resilient. Consequently the requirement for new gold discoveries is paramount
to most major gold producers since their reserve bases are being depleted
against increased production.

Your Board remains convinced that Africa in general has the optimum mix of
geological potential and acceptable political risk and thus compares favourably
with other regions of the world.

The group has and continues to pursue the acquisition of further gold interests
to enhance shareholder value. It is expected that one or more transactions will
be concluded during the first half of 2005.

The initial period of an emerging mining company is inevitably one of
consolidation. Having consolidated assets and systems I feel confident that the
year 2005 will lead to the positive development of our current portfolio and
the acquisition of other potentially valuable projects.

The directors report that for the 18 month period to 30 September 2004 the
group returned a loss of £164,231 compared with a loss in the previous 12 month
period of £62,067 reflecting the additional overheads arising from the group's
enhanced activity. The cash balance at 30 September 2004 was £1,208,255 and the
cash balance at the date of this report was approximately £700,000.

Finally, I would like to thank my fellow directors and management for the
focused work during the period under review noting the resignation of Mr Trygve
Kroepelien on 29 March 2005 and thank him for his valuable support during the
formative stages of the group.
