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.
