China Energy Corp. Anticipates No Material Impact from Chinese Government’s Recent Announcement on Thermal Coal Contract Price Hikes

July 7, 2010

HOHHOT CITY, China, July 7 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — China Energy
Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: CHGY), (“China Energy” or “the Company”), a
leading Inner Mongolia producer and processor of raw coal for domestic heating,
electrical generation, and coking purposes for steel production in the
People’s Republic of China
, with operations in coal trading and heat and power
supply, today announced that it anticipates no material impact on the Company
from the Chinese Government’s recent announcement on thermal coal contract
prices, and confirms its recently issued net income guidance of $17 million to
$18 million
for 2010.

On June 25, 2010, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC)
issued a notice on its website, asking some of China’s major coal mining
players to keep contract coal prices steady. “Prices for coal under annual
supply contracts could not be changed, and coal miners must return any
additional charges before the end of June if they have lifted contract coal
prices. State-owned coal companies and industry leaders should lead the way in
keeping contract coal prices steady,” said the NDRC in the notice.

The purpose of this NDRC notice is to curb inflation and ensure sufficient
supplies of electricity during the summer. According to the China Coal
Resource website ( http://www.sxcoal.com ), the benchmark thermal coal price
in Qinghuangdao Port for 5,000 kilocalories increased 9.1% to $96 per ton in
late June 2010, compared to $88 per ton in late April 2010. In the same period
the price for 5,500 kilocalories of thermal coal rose to $111 per ton, up by
7.8% from $103 per ton.

“We do not anticipate that the recent requirement by the NDRC will have a
material impact on China Energy, since we sell on the spot coal market and
have not entered into any annual contract with Independent Power Producers.
Year to date, we have not experienced any pressure on our coal sales prices,”
commented Mr. WenXiang Ding, President and CEO of China Energy. “Furthermore,
we have maintained a steady and multi-faceted customer base, including coal
fired power plants, heating plants, steel manufacturing and metallurgy of
non-ferrous metals.”
