Email to Shareholders
Dear Shareholder,

The Directors of NuCoal Resources Ltd (NuCoal or Company) request your assistance and ask that you contact the NSW Government to voice your ongoing concerns and to seek an update on compensation for NuCoal.  This is one of those times when we need you to tell your personal stories and demand that justice needs to be done and compensation paid.

The information below  updates shareholders on relevant background and current actions being taken by the Company in seeking compensation from the NSW Government.

Recent key matters undertaken by NuCoal for your information and attention are:
1. Legislative Council member Rev Hon Fred Nile introduced a Private Members Bill (PMB) in the NSW Upper House on 6 June 2019 which dealt with the appointment of an arbitrator to consider compensation for innocent NuCoal shareholders who were affected by the cancellation of the Doyles Creek Exploration Licence – EL 7270. The PMB was then referred to the Standing Committee on Law and Justice (Standing Committee) for enquiry and report.
2. The Standing Committee opened a formal public submission process with respect to the Mining Amendment (Compensation for Cancellation of Exploration Licence) Bill 2019 (the Bill) and accepted submissions up until 31 July 2019.  Following a formal invitation from the Standing Committee, the Company lodged a submission on behalf of shareholders on 23 July 2019
3. After the submission process, the Standing Committee invited NuCoal, along with a number of other individuals who also lodged a submission, to attend a public hearing. The public hearing was held on 9 August 2019 and the Directors appeared on behalf of NuCoal. During the hearing, there were a number of questions taken on notice due to the level of detail requested by the Standing Committee. NuCoal prepared a detailed response to the questions taken on notice which was finalised and submitted to the Standing Committee on 6 September 2019.
4. The Standing Committee tabled its report with the Clerk of the Parliaments on 30 October 2019. The report was made publicly available via the Standing Committee website on the same day. As outlined in the report, the Committee provided the following recommendations:
Recommendation 1 – That the Mining Amendment (Compensation for Cancellation of Exploration Licence) Bill 2019 not proceed in its current form.
Recommendation 2 – That the NSW Government address the outstanding matters raised during this inquiry, where appropriate, including the issue of compensation for innocent shareholders.
5. On 30 April 2020, the NSW Government provided a formal response to the Standing Committee noting that they agreed with Recommendation 1 and reserved their position with respect to Recommendation 2. Please refer to the following link to view the response:

6. NuCoal understands that the Attorney General, The Hon. Mark Speakman, now has carriage of the matter and we have recently corresponded with him to seek an update on the matter.

In an effort to continue progressing the matter, NuCoal requests your assistance in contacting the NSW Government to remind them that NuCoal and its innocent shareholders deserve compensation.
