SEATTLE, July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- L&L Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: "LLEN") ("L&L" or "Company"), a Seattle-based company with a track record of profitable coal operations in China, announced that the Company's recently constructed Weishe Mine, located in the Guizhou Province, ("Weishe" or "the Mine") has passed its final safety inspection and is to receive its license for full scale coal production.
Since February 2012, regulators have been performing inspections on Weishe's shaft construction, air ventilation, safety equipment and coal extraction practices to ensure the newly constructed mine meets various new safety standards.

The Mine's initial approved production rate is 150,000 tons per annum and can be expand to 450,000 tons after additional improvements. Coal from Weishe will be sent via L&L's wholesale and logistics platform in to its end users, bringing additional profits to the Company.
"This is another strong step forward for L&L," commented Dr. Syd Peng, Ph.D., L&L Director. "The on schedule completion of the construction and safety inspections at Weishe, our first project with Union Energy, represents an important milestone in our relationship. We continue to work toward the effective execution of our consolidation strategy and intend to repeat the successes of Weishe as we seek to further upgrade our mining portfolio for expanded operations."
