 Press Release   29 February 2012 

ATH Resources plc

("ATH Resources" or the "Group")

AGM Statement

ATH Resources plc (AIM: ATH), one of the UK's largest coal producers, will be holding its Annual General Meeting today at 11:00 hrs at Eversheds LLP, Bridgewater Place, Water Lane, Leeds, LS11 5DR.

At the Annual General Meeting David Port, Chairman of ATH Resources, will provide the following trading update:

"Production achieved in the four months ended 31 January 2012 was 20 per cent. ahead of the same period last year, although due to the delays in obtaining appropriate levels of restoration bonding, production for the full year is expected to be only slightly ahead of last year.

"Despite the Board having successfully renegotiated pricing on two of the Group's legacy contracts and with the remaining legacy contract finishing in the next few weeks, the escalating gas oil price and weakness in international coal prices are continuing to exert pressure on the Group's operating margins and, if this persists, will impact on the Group's trading performance for the full year. The Group is working to improve margins through a combination of cost efficiencies and improving its sales mix. However, given the uncertainties over commodity prices, the Board remains cautious in its view of trading performance for the full year.

"The Group is still awaiting a decision on its appeal against a requirement to register for the Government's Carbon Reduction Commitment Scheme and will provide an update to the market as soon as the outcome is known.

"Development of the Group's project pipeline remains on track with planning applications for over 2 million tonnes expected to be submitted during 2012."
