 “The Art of Project Development: The
Mmamabula Energy Project case study”

  By: Gregory Kinross, CEO of CIC Energy Corp.
     Botswana Resource Sector Conference
                                Forward-Looking Statements
This presentation contains certain “forward-looking statements”. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, that address activities, events or
developments that CIC believes, expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are often, but not
always, identified by the use of words such as “seek”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “plan”, “estimate”, “expect”, and “intend” and statements that an event or result “may”,
“will”, “can”, “should”, “could”, or “might” occur or be achieved and other similar expressions. These forward-looking statements reflect the current internal projections,
expectations or beliefs of CIC based on information currently available to CIC. Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that may
cause the actual results of CIC to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements, and even if such actual results are realized or substantially
realized, there can be no assurance that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on CIC. Factors that could cause actual results or events to differ
materially from current expectations include, among other things, volatility of and sensitivity to market prices for coal and prices (market or otherwise) for electricity,
changes in equity markets, uncertainties relating to the availability and costs of financing needed in the future, the ability of CIC to conclude a power purchase
agreement with South Africa’s state owned electricity utility (Eskom Holdings Limited), capital and operating costs varying significantly from estimates, delays in the
development of the project, inability to secure sufficient water timeously, procurement of required capital equipment and operating parts and supplies, equipment
failure, unexpected geological or hydrological conditions, political risks arising from operating in Africa, imprecision in resource estimates, success of future exploration
and development initiatives, competition, operating performance of facilities, environmental and safety risks including increased regulatory burdens, seismic activity,
weather and other natural phenomena, failure to obtain necessary permits and approvals from government authorities, changes in government regulations and policies,
including tax and trade laws and policies, risks relating to labour, and other exploration, development and operating risks.
Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made and, except as may be required by applicable securities laws, CIC disclaims any intent or
obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or results or otherwise. Although CIC believes that the
assumptions inherent in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and accordingly undue
reliance should not be put on such statements due to the inherent uncertainty therein.
Resource figures included in this presentation are estimates and no assurances can be given that the indicated levels of coal will be produced. Such estimates are
expressions of judgment based on knowledge, mining experience, analysis of drilling results and industry practices. Valid estimates made at a given time may
significantly change when new information becomes available. While CIC believes that the resource estimates included in this presentation are well established, by
their nature resource estimates are imprecise and depend, to a certain extent, upon statistical inferences which may ultimately prove unreliable.
The extent to which resources may ultimately be reclassified as proven or probable reserves is dependent upon the demonstration of their profitable recovery. The
evaluation of reserves or resources is always influenced by economic and technological factors, which may change over time. No assurances can be given that any
resource estimate will ultimately be reclassified as proven or probable reserves.
If CIC's resource estimates for its coal properties are inaccurate or are reduced in the future, this could have a material adverse impact on CIC.
Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Measured and indicated resources are sufficiently well defined to allow
geological and grade continuity to be reasonably assumed and permit the application of technical and economic parameters in assessing the economic viability of the
resource. Inferred resources are estimated on limited information not sufficient to verify geological and grade continuity or to allow technical and economic parameters
to be applied. Inferred resources are too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them to enable them to be categorized as mineral
reserves as there is no certainty that mineral resources can be upgraded to mineral reserves through continued exploration.

                 Introduction and Overview
 CIC is focused on the Mmamabula Energy Project, a proposed major, two phase
  integrated coal mine and power station; Phase 1 of which comprises:
     Mine of approximately 8.5mtpa, supplying
     Power Plant of approximately 2,400MW
     Phase 1 project will cost in excess of US$6bn

 The Project is located in southeastern Botswana

 Electricity to be sold under long-term Power Purchase Agreements (“PPA”) (currently being
  negotiated) to Eskom Holdings (for the majority) and Botswana Power Corporation

 First COD targeted for Q1, 2012

 CIC has concluded an agreement with International Power plc, regarding the purchase of
  50% of Phase 1, and co-development and operation of Phase 1 power station and mine

 CIC Energy Corp. is a listed company which commenced trading on the Toronto Stock
  Exchange in March 2006 and on the Botswana Stock exchange in June 2006

 The Project represents the largest undeveloped high-quality coal asset in Southern Africa
  not under the control of a major mining company
 New projects now under investigation include Coal-to-Liquids

                 Mmamabula Project Location

 The Project is located in
  Botswana’s Mmamabula Coal
  Fields - the extension of South
  Africa’s Waterberg Coal Fields
 Waterberg contains in excess of
  40% of South Africa’s coal
 Waterberg is host to Exxaro’s 16
  Mtpa Grootegeluk coal mine
  and Eskom’s 3,690 MW
  Matimba power station
 Waterberg is also host to
  Eskom’s recently approved
  approx. 4,500MW Medupi
  power station (previously known
  as “Alpha” and “Charlie”)
 Ideal location with proximity to
  South African grid
 Excellent access and
                    Mmamabula East & South
To date CIC has drilled in excess of
100,000 metres in over 1,000 holes

Resources currently total 2.3 billion tonnes (measured and indicated) (previously 1.29 billion tonnes) - coal
qualities represent good power station feed, with raw calorific values (“CV”) of approximately 21 to 23 MJ/kg   11
