Statement re Barberton Mines Resource Upgrade


31 May 2011

Incorporated and registered in England and Wales under Companies Act 1985 with

           Significant Reserve Upgrade at Barberton Mines (Pty) Ltd            


Pan African Resources PLC ('Pan African'), the African focused precious metals
producer, announces a significant increase in the resource and reserve for
Barberton Mines (Pty) Ltd ('Barberton Mines').



Barberton Mines - Mineral Resource and Reserve upgrade:

- Total mineral resource increased by 7% to 2,55Moz of gold (9,47Mt at 8,35g/t in

- Measured and Indicated ('M&I') mineral resource increased by 4% to 1.9Moz of
  gold (6,96Mt at 8,48g/t in situ)

- Significant increase in total resource grade by 33% to 8,35g/t in situ (2010:
  6,29g/t in situ)

- Mineral reserve increased by 51% to 1Moz (3,83Mt at 8,12g/t in situ)


Jan Nelson, Chief Executive Officer of Pan African, commented: "These results
confirm that the Barberton ore-body is able to sustain current production rates
well into the future. The increase in the resource grade clearly demonstrates
that there are still significant high grade zones of mineralisation within the
mine boundary. In addition, the Company's ability to drive costs down has
allowed us to convert a significant portion of the resource to reserve. Our
attention is now focused on our prospecting permit where we have identified a
geophysical anomaly close to surface that has a geographic footprint equal in
size to the mining footprint at our Fairview Mine that has produced 4Moz."


Barberton Mines - Mineral Resource upgrade


Over the past three years an integrated Mineral Resource Management ('MRM')
programme has been implemented at Barberton Mines. The objectives of this
programme are to:

(a) increase the total resource;

(b) increase the reserve base to improve Life of Mine and mining flexibility; and

(c) grow the production profile.

This programme represents over 37,915m of drilling, 5494m of development and a
capital investment of approximately GBP6 million over three years.

All three objectives have now been achieved and are supported year-on-year by
the total resource increase by 7% to 2,55Moz (9,47Mt at 8,35g/t in situ), and
the M&I resource increased by 4% to 1,9Moz (6,96Mt at 8,47g/t in situ). The
reserve has been increased by 51% to 1Moz (3,83Mt @ 8,10g/t in situ).

Significant geophysical anomalies have been identified on the prospecting area
and southern extent of the Fairview Mining Authorization boundary. The combined
geographical extent of some of these anomalies are larger than the mining
footprint at the Fairview Mine where over 4Moz of gold has been mined to date.
The focus will now shift to drilling these targets and bringing them to
