Second Quarter Activities & Cashflow Report
Since the last Quarterly Report, the company has successfully
completed a major capital raising through the issue of
convertible/redeemable preference shares, Deepgreen has raised almost
$4 million which has enabled it to increase its investment
activities.

The Company now has major investments in:

* Cassiar Mines & Metals Inc, a company promoting a $600 million
magnesium metal and fibre project in British Columbia, Canada;

* a significant shareholding in Kidz.net Ltd, an exciting new
operator in the burgeoning internet arena;

* the Pageton coal project, the first of a series of coal reclamation
projects to be brought on stream in West Virginia; and

* Asia Energy, a company promoting one of the largest energy
developments undertaken in Bangladesh.

The Company continues to examine opportunities that will enable it to
provide the seed capital for new corporate developments in resource
and technology companies.

CASSIAR

Deepgreen increased its interest in Cassiar Mines and Metals Inc to
10% of the company by subscribing for $2 million of convertible
debentures. The debentures carry an interest rate of 12.5% per annum
and are convertible into Cassiar ordinary shares. This was funded
partly from proceeds of the new issue and partly from the sale of
Cassiar common shares. At 31 December, Deepgreen held 1.12 million
shares in addition to the convertible debentures.

Cassiar advised that magnesium silicate production commenced in
December from surface resources at the Cassiar mine in British
Columbia, Canada. Production is expected to build up to 18,000 tonnes

per year initially and to a rate of 50,000 tonnes per year after
further investment over the next three years.

Cassiar continued to advance its memorandum of understanding with
Aluminium of Korea Ltd, an Hyundai group company, to undertake a
$US25 million investigation of magnesium metal production from the
Cassiar mine.

KIDZ.NET LTD

Deepgreen currently has a holding of approximately 2.3 million
options and 700,000 ordinary shares in Kidz.net. Kidz.net is in a
strong financial position with substantial cash resources and an
exciting business plan. Deepgreen believes that this investment has
the potential to appreciate significantly over the next six months,
particularly in view of market conditions in the internet and
telecommunications area.

NORTH AMERICA

Purchase of the Pageton property was completed and title to the land,
coal deposits and tailings ponds was transferred to Deepgreen
Minerals West Virginia Inc, a wholly-owned subsidiary.

Contractors will be engaged in the first quarter of 2000 to mine the
Pocohontas No. 3 seam at Pageton, initially at a rate of 20,000
tonnes per month. Discussions for the sale of the high quality
metallurgical coal are continuing. It is anticipated that these
mining operations will provide cash flow until the dredge and fine
coal recovery plant are shipped from Wollondilly in NSW and
re-established at Pageton.

Two more properties in West Virginia have been offered to the
Company. These are being evaluated.

ASIA AND AUSTRALIA

Deepgreen's 51%-owned subsidiary, Asia Energy Corporation Pty Ltd
(AEC) has two coal projects located in south east Asia. One, at Sabah
in Malaysia, has a pending application for a coal exploration licence
and has known coal deposits but has not yet been fully explored.

The other, the Phulbari Coal project located in North West
Bangladesh, has been acquired from BHP which explored the area in the
late 1990's and delineated a coal resource of some 380 million
tonnes.

A conceptual level study for mining Phulbari has confirmed an
inferred resource of 383 million tonnes of high quality steaming coal
that would be suitable for thermal power generation. The consulting
group Geo-Eng International, from Victoria, was commissioned to carry
out the study. Geo-Eng reported that the project was likely to be
both technically and economically viable.

AEC now proposes to carry out a pre-feasibility study that will
include infill and resource extension drilling, geo-technical and
hydrological studies, infrastructure studies and studies for the
construction and operation of electric power stations with capacity
to generate about 2,100 MW. On completion of the study, suitable
partners will be sought to advance the project.

Sale of electric power would be to both India and Bangladesh given
the project's proximity to the border with India.

The pre-feasibility study is expected to take about two years to
complete.

AEC's representatives met with senior ministry officers from the
Government of Bangladesh in December 1999 and they expressed strong
interest in the development of the project. Consequently, AEC has
been invited to send a delegation to Bangladesh in late February 2000
to provide a detailed briefing to a group of department heads
reporting to the Prime Minister with a view to receiving assistance
to expedite the project's development.

Operations in Australia were confined to refurbishing the Wollondilly
plant and preparing it for shipment to the US.

INDIAN MINING CORPORATION NL

Since the close of the quarter, Deepgreen has ceased to be a
substantial shareholder in the company, having taken advantage of a
stronger market to dispose of its shares. The sale has yielded a
small profit and strengthened Deepgreen's cash resources.

FINANCIAL

Deepgreen continued to evaluate other investment opportunities and
intends to maintain a flexible policy on the acquisition and sale of
shares. In accordance with the prospectus, Deepgreen has used part of
the funds raised to increase its investment and share trading
portfolio and to advance its coal interests in the US and Asia.

The main increases in investments have been the purchase of
additional securities in Kidz.net Ltd and Cassiar Mines and Metals
Inc. A holding of 8.9 million shares in Australian Mining Investments
Ltd was acquired, while the holding in Indian Mining Corporation was
sold.
