SEATTLE, Jan. 31, 2013

SEATTLE, Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- L & L Energy, Inc., (Nasdaq: LLEN)
("L&L" or the "Company"), a Seattle-based company with a track record of
profitable coal operations in China, provided an update on its mining
operations in Guizhou and plans for expansion into Shanxi and Inner Mongolia.

Guizhou Expansion Ahead of Schedule

In November 2012, L&L acquired two newly built mines in the Guizhou Province.
The Luozhou and Lashu mines added 34.2 million tons of reserves and, when
fully expanded, will add 750,000 tons of annual production to L&L's mining
segment. Today the Company is pleased to announce that both new mines are
producing ahead of schedule and as a result, L&L expects strong sales and
profit for the third quarter ended January 31, 2013. These two mines, along
with L&L's Weishe mine, will exceed the one million ton annual production
minimum outlined under the Guizhou coal consolidation policy.

L&L's Expansion to Shanxi and Inner Mongolia

With a strong and expanding operational base established in Guizhou in both
wholesale and mining, L&L's Board has decided to speed up the evaluation of
larger coal operations in the Shanxi and Inner Mongolia Provinces located in
North China. Having already undergone a consolidation, the remaining mines in
Shanxi and Inner Mongolia have larger production capacities and safer
operating histories. L&L will be targeting mines with over one million tons of
annual capacity.

L&L Director, Mr. Jingcai Yang will guide the due diligence process, accessing
his robust coal network. Mr. Yang was formerly the Chairman & CEO of the
Shendong Coal Corporation, Shenhua's largest coal subsidiary. Recently, L&L
relocated its China headquarters to Beijing, which will provide additional
support to the due diligence process. Shanxi and Inner Mongolia are the number
one and two coal producing provinces in China.

L&L Chairman and CEO, Dickson Lee commented, "Over the 18 years of L&L's
operations, we have continuously expanded and upgraded our portfolio to
improve scalability, safety, and technology. Our South China operations
create a solid base for our mining segment and we will work with Mr. Yang, Dr.
Syd Peng, and other partners to evaluate new opportunities in Shanxi and Inner
Mongolia."
