                              Operational Update                               

The Directors of WNR, the PLUS listed waste-to-energy company, specialising in
coal-fines pelletisation, is pleased to provide shareholders with the following
business update:

The 50 tonne per hour coal waste pelletisation plant, which the Company
purchased on 26 June 2012 has now arrived in Durban, South Africa, where it is
being securely stored, awaiting final transportation to its production site in
Newcastle, South Africa. The Company is currently seeking to raise further
finance in order to transport and ultimately commission the Plant at its
planned site, which is adjacent to the proposed supply of coal fines, where the
Company has already secured a significant feedstock agreement.

Alexander Johnson, CEO of WNR, commented, "This development is a major
milestone for WNR, as the Company moves towards the final stages before
production. Over the past two years WNR has entirely focused its efforts to
become a leader in the reduction of environmentally harmful coal waste in South
Africa and we expect to announce the commencement of operations within the next
few months."

The directors take responsibility for the contents of this announcement.

Worldwide Natural Resources Plc is quoted on PLUS Markets Group (PLUS: WNR) and
is a London listed waste-to-energy company. WNR's technology was developed to
treat different forms of waste and to process them back into useable energy
sources. Currently we focus exclusively on coal and on processing coal waste
using the High Efficiency Advanced Pelletisation (HEAP) Process.

WNR seeks to develop into a successful waste-to-energy company, providing
shareholder value while simultaneously observing it's environmental objectives
to remove an ecological adversary.

There is an abundance of coal waste (`coal fines' or `coal tailings')
worldwide. Waste from coal mining is a severe environmental hazard. Waste dumps
or slag heaps create an environmental threat with acid leachate with toxic
trace elements emanating from them. It is estimated that up to 10-25% of mined
coal can be rejected and deposited as washery tailings.

WNR has secured 15 million tonnes of tailings feedstock and has contractually
secured off-take agreements to sell all of its pellets produced from its 50 tph

The HEAP process utilises elegant chemistry with simple yet robust engineering
to produce a energy source that is advanced and scalable.
