The consolidated income statements of the Company for the years ended December 31, 2010, 2011 and 2012 have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB"). The consolidated income statements are derived from, and should be read in conjunction with, the Company's consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2010, 2011 and 2012, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2013 under cover of Form 20-F.

Mr. Li Feilie, the Company's Chairman, commented on the results: "China Natural Resources recorded total revenues of CNY156.67 million (US$25.15 million) in 2012, up by 5.74% from a year earlier.  The rise in revenues was mainly attributable to the higher production output of anthracite in our coal division. Following the gradual completion of construction and upgrade of our acquired coal mines, revenue from our coal division surpassed that of our metal division in 2012 and we expect it will become our major source of revenue in the coming years. Application for the pilot run of Yongsheng mine, one of our two largest anthracite mines, was lodged in March 2013 and we anticipate the commencement of commercial run in the last quarter of 2013 after the passing of pilot run inspection.  Identifying undervalued assets and pursuing growth through the acquisition and consolidation of small to medium sized coal mines in Guizhou province of mainland China is our competitive edge. We intend to take advantage of the coal mine consolidation opportunity in Guizhou province this year and the year ahead."

For the convenience of the reader, amounts in Chinese Yuan ("CNY") have been translated into United States dollars ("US$") at the rate of US$1.00=CNY6.2306 quoted by Bloomberg Finance L.P. on December 31, 2012.  The CNY is not freely convertible into foreign currencies and no representation is made that the CNY amounts could have been, or could be, converted into US$ at that rate, or at all.
