BHA and the Company are currently negotiating agreements on the first two targets and have signed an exclusive MOU on one of the projects.

Stephen Barley, Executive Chairman stated: "African Energy Metals' relationships in Africa extend beyond the DRC and into many neighboring countries. With the renewed interest in coal generated power in Europe, we were approached by BHA to participate with them in this exciting opportunity. The focus will be on projects that can sustain or increase coal production for export in the near term. The Company will continue with the current lithium, tin, tantalum, and rare earth projects in the DRC."
