Amsterdam, 25 February 2009 - New World Resources N.V. ("NWR" or the "Company"), Central Europe's leading hard coal producer, today announces details of its final dividend payment in respect of the year ended 31 December 2008.

The directors of NWR have proposed a final dividend for the year ended 31 December 2008 of EUR 0.18 per A share, which will be paid to A shareholders on 22 May 2009. Together with the interim dividend of EUR 0.28 per A share paid in October 2008, this takes the full year post-IPO dividend payable to A shareholders to EUR 0.46 per A share for the full year ended 31 December 2008.

Shareholders should consult their own tax advisers as to the particular tax consequences for them of receiving dividends from the Company.

The dividend for NWR is declared in Euros. A shareholders may elect to receive this dividend in Pound Sterling, Euros, Czech Koruna or Polish Zlotys. The default election will be deemed to be Pound Sterling if a shareholder otherwise expresses no preference. The Pound Sterling, Euro, Czech Koruna or Polish Zloty amount payable will be determined by reference to the exchange rate applicable to the Euro on 11 May 2009.
