L&L Energy Responds to Short Seller Article

SEATTLE, September 19, 2013 – L& L Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: "LLEN") ("L&L" or the "Company"), a U.S.-based company
with a track record of profitable energy (coal) operations in China, today responded to the GeoInvesting allegations made on
seekingalpha.com.

The Board of Directors of L&L Energy states that it is unaware of inaccuracy with respect to material facts or material omission
contained in its filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.  The Company further believes
GeoInvesting's report to be inaccurate and defamatory.  GeoInvesting has disclosed its short position in L&L, and therefore
stands to realize significant gains by releasing this report, anticipating the Company's share price to decline.

Dickson Lee, Chairman and CEO, commented, “GeoInvesting has made false and misleading statements about the Company
in the past, while admitting they were actively shorting our stock. We were informed that there were unusually high put option
activities yesterday which are set to expire tomorrow. GeoInvesting has made no attempt to reach out to L&L to discuss or
verify any of these false allegations. We will exhaust our resources to respond and protect our shareholders, including
exploring filing formal complaints with the appropriate regulatory bodies.”

L&L's Independent Board Members are forming a special committee with counsel’s guidance to fully investigate these
allegations.
