Note: CanAm holds 80% ownership in Birmingham Coal & Coke (BCC) following   
its acquisition of an additional 30% interest, effective July 1, 2012. As at
that date, CanAm began consolidating the financial results of BCC in        
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and, accordingly   
the above information is presented on a consolidated basis and includes 100%
of BCC's sales and production volumes.                                      
                                                                            
(i) Restated to reflect a comparable October to December 2011 quarter. Last 
year's reported quarter only comprised two months (November & December      
2011).                                                                      

The significant increase in both sales and production is attributable to a combination of a) an increase in the Company's ownership in BCC, which was effective July 1, 2012, b) improved production performance at our existing mines c) production from our new Old Union 2 mine, which commenced operations at its first pit in late October, and d) improved strip ratios. Q4 production exceeded sales by approximately 20,000 tons. This was mainly attributable to reduced sales in the latter part of December as a number of our customers reduced hours or closed operations during the Christmas period, which impacted December sales. These customers accelerated their shipment schedules in January 2013 to make up for the shortfall. Sales of metallurgical coal were up 42% from the prior year and were 37% higher than in Q3 of 2012.

During Q4, the Company experienced strong production performance at its Powhatan, Bear Creek and Old Union mines. Management and operational changes instituted in the first half of the year were a key factor explaining this improvement, particularly at Powhatan. As disclosed in our Q3 MD&A, the Company took the decision in Q4 to temporarily suspend operations at the Gooden Creek mine and to move forward the start dates of its second and third pits at the Old Union 2 mine from mid-2013 to Q1 2013. The Company is pleased to report that both pits entered production in late January. Mining at Old Union 1 is substantially complete and production will cease by the end of February 2013.

As previously reported, the Company received final permitting from the Alabama Surface Mining Commission for its Knight and Posey Mill 2 mines. The Knight mine, which replaces the Bear Creek mine (expected to be mined out in the first half of 2013) commenced production in late January 2013. Mine development is underway at the Posey Mill 2 mine with first production planned before the end of Q1 2013. Looking forward into 2013, the Company is expecting continued growth in production and sales as it brings on full production from its newly permitted mines.

Company President and CEO, Jos De Smedt commented: "CanAm achieved significant production and sales growth in Q3 and Q4 and full 2012 was another record year for the Company. Since 2010, which was the first year of production for CanAm, we have seen our sales increase almost ten-fold, from 48,000 tons in 2010 to 256,000 tons in 2011 to a record 455,000 tons in 2012. With our new mines fully permitted and initial mine development nearing completion, further significant growth is expected in 2013. In addition, the Company's $11 million investment in new equipment in 2012 positions CanAm to efficiently optimize production and sales from these new mines. With these building blocks in place, we look forward to strong growth in 2013."

The Company is expected to release its audited full year financial results in April 2013.
