The consolidated statements of profits or loss of the Company for the years ended December 31, 2012, 2013 and 2014 have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board. The consolidated statements of profits or loss have been derived from and should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2014 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 27, 2015 under cover of Form 20-F.

Mr. Li Feilie, the Company's Chairman, commented on the results: "following the spin-off to shareholders and listing on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited of the Company's shares in its former coal segment, the Company has only one iron mine operating in mainland China.  While the depressed market price for non-ferrous metals continues to put pressure on our industry; and the designation of three of our mining areas as exploration-free zones has temporarily slowed our growth, we continue to seek potential projects in the PRC to enhance shareholder values."

For the convenience of the reader, amounts in Chinese Yuan ("CNY") have been translated into United States dollars ("US$") at the rate of US$1.00=CNY6.2055 quoted by Bloomberg Finance L.P. on December 31, 2014.  The CNY is not freely convertible into foreign currencies and no representation is made that the CNY amounts could have been, or could be, converted into US$ at that rate, or at all.
