Altona Energy Plc

("Altona" or “the Company")

Business Update

Altona (NEX: ANR.PL), a coal exploration company with a focus on in-situ gasification, announces that it plans to issue its Annual Accounts for the year ended 30 June 2019 within the next two weeks. The delay has been caused by a change in auditor and the evaluation and new treatment of its historical Australian exploration licences.

The Company will look to shortly provide an update as to the proposed acquisition of the new Petroleum Exploration Licence Application (“PELA”), as first announced on 21 November 2019. The two parties have exchanged an exclusivity agreement and final terms are being negotiated.

The Board has also agreed the immediate need for a fundraise to finance ongoing costs, allow it to acquire the new exploration licence and fund the preliminary exploration stages to confirm coal deposits suitable for the in-situ gasification process. Shareholders will be invited to participate in this fundraise and documents to this effect will be posted out in the next two weeks.
