    Mine plan

Of the total proven and probable reserves of approximately 17.3 million tons, approximately 10.0 million tons are surface and highwall mineable, and 7.3 million tons are deep mineable. The base case mine plan represents the estimated production of all surface and highwall mineable proven and probable reserve tons from January 1, 2010 through 2022 at an average production rate of 63,300 tons per month. Cash flow forecasts include assumptions based on production and capital expenditures on the surface and highwall mineable proven and probable reserve tons only and does not represent the potential deep mineable proven and probable reserve tons.

Located in Boone County, West Virginia, the Raven Crest properties comprise approximately 12,262 acres of land. Approximately 5.0 million tons of the 17.3 million tons of proven and probable reserves is currently permitted for surface mining. Currently, Raven Crest is producing at an annual rate of 800,000 tons that can be increased by 50% to 1.2 million tons without any additional capital costs for permits or expansion.

Phillip Lucas, Vice President with Summit Engineering Inc., is a Qualified Person and Independent of the Company in accordance with NI 43-101. In addition, he has reviewed and approved the technical and scientific information contained in this news release.

    Operational update on producing mines

Xinergy completed the acquisition of Raven Crest Mining LLC ("Raven Crest") in late-April of 2010 (see news release dated April 29, 2010). In the months ending April 2010 and May 2010, average production that includes both Straight Creek and Raven Crest properties totaled 75,725 and 126,104, respectively, of clean coal tons, which demonstrates a 67% increase in production for the Company. Total tons sold were 46,921 and 118,284 for April and May, respectively, representing a 152% increase. The blended average price per ton was $67.61 for April and $79.76 for May. This increase in production, sales, and price per ton, translates into a 197% increase in total sales revenue from April 2010 to May 2010.

Mr. Jon Nix, CEO of Xinergy, commented, "The acquisition of Raven Crest has allowed us to increase our proven and probable reserve base by approximately 17.3 million tons. This technical report shows that in addition to increasing our reserve base, the strategic acquisition of Raven Crest strongly positions Xinergy to grow organically and expand contiguously."

The Company continues to implement operational and cost efficiencies at both Straight Creek and Raven Crest to meet its production targets of 1.5 million tons per year and 1.2 million tons per year, respectively, by the end of 2011.
