China Coal Corporation announces resumption of trading

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

CALGARY, July 24, 2012 /CNW/ -China Coal Corporation ("China Coal" "CKO" or the "Company") (CKO/TSX-Venture Exchange) announces that a bulletin will be issued today by the TSX Venture Exchange authorizing resumption of trading of the Company's shares for start of business on Wednesday, July 25, 2012.

The Company's shares were halted for trading on February 8, 2012, on announcing that it was intending to discontinue pursuit of operations in the Peoples' Republic of China ("PRC") by proposing that the shareholders of the Corporation (the "Shareholders") approve a dividend disposition to the Shareholders, of the Company's sole asset, being the shares of the wholly owned subsidiary Golden Hill International Holdings Limited. That dividend distribution was subsequently cancelled by CKO, but at that time the Company was still subject to a continuous disclosure review, initiated during the second half of 2011 by the Alberta Securities Commission. That review is now concluded, and thus the TSX Venture Exchange is lifting the trading halt.

On behalf of the Board of Directors


"Mark Roth"
Chief Financial Officer
