Corsa Increases Fourth Quarter Guidance

November 12, 2012

TORONTO, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Corsa Coal Corp. (TSXV: CSO) (“Corsa” or
the “Company”) announces an increase to its fourth quarter guidance.
Based on new sales contracts, the Company now expects to ship
approximately 75,000 tons in the calendar fourth quarter of which it
expects 55,000 tons to be taken into sales in its fiscal fourth quarter
and the remainder to fall into next fiscal year sales. The Company had
previously given guidance that it expected to ship 32,000 tons of met
coal in its fiscal fourth quarter. As a result, the Casselman mine,
temporarily idled in mid-October, has recommenced full operations
together with its coal preparation plant. The Company has continued to
be successful in achieving sales as a result of the superior quality of
its low volatile met coal product. The Company continues to actively
market its 2013 production and will continue to match its production to
actual sales.
