DJ Altona Energy Plc Update Re: Open Offer

19 March 2020 
                          ("Altona" or "the Company") 
                             Update Re Open Offer 
                            and further Information 
Following a number of enquires by shareholders with regards to the Open Offer, 
the Board of Altona wish to make the following points: 
 1. If you did not receive an Application Form in the post (along with the Open 
    Offer Circular) it is because you hold your shares in a stockbroker's 
    Nominee account and, should you wish to subscribe for new shares in the 
    Open Offer, you must call your stockbroker to instruct them to make the 
    application on your behalf. 
 2. Only shareholders who own Altona shares in their own name (ie, you are the 
    registered owner) will have received an Application Form and can apply 
    directly for the offer. 
 3. For the Open Offer to be deemed successful, the Company is looking to raise 
    GBP400,000. For this to happen, the Board is asking its shareholders to take 
    up their Excess Entitlement (rather than just the Basic Entitlement). This 
    is due to the market capitalisation of the Company being only GBP100,000 and 
    the Board is looking to raise GBP400,000. 
The Board can report that at its shareholder conference call held on 18 March, 
a number of shareholders were present and John King, the representative 
geologist from WSP Australia, the Company's mining engineers, set out the logic 
behind the new project and expressed his "excitement" in exploring areas within 
PELA 517 which have never been explored before. His assumptions are based on 
his many years' experience as a geologist in the local area and also the 
available data from neighbouring tenements showing coal deposits at depth. 
Finally, if shareholders are still uncertain whether to subscribe for shares in 
the Open Offer and wish to find out more information on the In-Situ 
Gasification project which the Company is hoping to commence, please contact 
Christian Taylor-Wilkinson via email: or telephone: +44 (0)
