Homeland Energy Group Enters Into Exclusivity Agreement With United States Central Appalachian Coal Producer

- Positions the company for increased growth for 2009

TORONTO, ONTARIO, Jun 03, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Homeland Energy Group Ltd. (TSX: HEG) ('Homeland' or 'the Company') has entered into a letter agreement giving the Company an exclusive right to negotiate a binding 'purchase and sale agreement' for the purchase of a producing coal operation located in the Central Appalachian Coal Basin of the eastern United States. The Company expects this transaction, if taken to completion, to be accretive to Homeland within the first year. It would represent a material addition to the Company's current operations in southern Africa.

"We are very excited by the quality of this asset and feel confident about its fit with the company's overall strategic plan." commented Stephen Coates, President and CEO. "Increasing our production profile and diversifying geographic exposure is a key complement to our own organic growth in southern Africa".

The operations have met Homeland's preliminary due diligence requirements and as such, the Company has executed its option under the letter agreement for the exclusive right for 90 days to conduct full due diligence on the property and to complete a binding purchase and sale agreement. In consideration for this exclusive right, Homeland has made a non-refundable deposit of US$500,000, which would go toward the purchase price.
