Amara Mining PLC: Share Purchase Agreement with Amlib Holdings Plc LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 11/07/13 -- *T TSX:AMZ 7 November 2013 AIM:AMA Amara Mining plc ("Amara" or "the Company") LONG TERM STRATEGIC INVESTOR, RDV CORPORATION, TO BOLSTER AMARA VIA SHARE PURCHASE AGREEMENT WITH AMLIB HOLDINGS PLC Amara Mining plc, the AIM listed West African focused gold mining company, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a legally binding, conditional share purchase agreement (the "Agreement") with Amlib Holdings plc ("Amlib") pursuant to which the Company will acquire US$10 million cash, a drilling operation and three Liberian exploration licences (the "Transaction") for an aggregate value of US$11.0 million. Amlib is a privately held gold exploration company with RDV Corporation ("RDV") as majority shareholder. RDV has invested in Amlib since 1999 and regards the Transaction as the optimal path to pursue its West African gold investment strategy. The experience of Amara's exploration team can assist to deliver maximum value from the Liberian assets, whilst Amlib's shareholders will benefit from exposure to Amara's broader growth portfolio. In addition to the three exploration licences, Amara will benefit from lower costs for its ongoing exploration across the region by utilising the drilling assets of Amlib (which have a net book value of US$1.6 million), together with the support of a new strategic shareholder in RDV.
