Amara Mining plc 
("Amara" or "the Company" or "the Group") 
SIX MILLION OUNCE MINERAL RESOURCE AT YAOURE GOLD PROJECT 
Amara Mining plc, the AIM-listed West African focused gold mining
company, is pleased to announce an updated NI 43-101 compliant Mineral
Resource estimate for its 100% owned Yaoure Gold Project ("Yaoure") in
Cote d'Ivoire. 
HIGHLIGHTS 
* Inferred Mineral Resource of 5.5 million ounces (133Mt at 
1.29g/t) representing an increase of 3.3 million ounces 1,2 
* Indicated Mineral Resource of 0.8 million ounces (20Mt at 
1.20g/t) representing an increase of 0.3 million ounces 1,3 
* Mineral Resource remains robust at a lower gold price and 
includes 0.4 million ounces of oxide material (9.4Mt at 1.33g/t) 
potentially amenable to low cost heap leach processing 1 
* 71% increase in Amara's global Mineral Resources to 3.7 million 
ounces Measured and Indicated and 6.4 million ounces Inferred 
* Minimal discovery cost of US$3.50/oz4 versus average industry 
discovery cost in Africa of US$16/oz 5 
* Metallurgical testwork has confirmed the simple, non-refractory 
nature of the gold mineralisation and its amenability to a range of 
processing options - results received in Q3 2013 also demonstrate 
robust recoveries for low grade samples 
* Location of Yaoure is highly advantageous due to close proximity 
to Kossou dam, which offers cheap hydro-electric power ("HEP") and 
abundant water, excellent roads and accommodation 
* Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") is anticipated to be 
completed in Q1 2014, focused on a large scale, long life 
carbon-in-leach ("CIL") or flotation scenario and a short-term heap 
leach opportunity 
Notes 
1. Using a 0.5g/t cut-off and a US$1,500 pit shell. At a 0.8g/t 
cut-off, the Yaoure Mineral Resource contains 0.6 million ounces 
Indicated (13.2Mt at 1.48g/t) and 4.6 million ounces Inferred 
(85.7Mt at 1.65g/t) 
2. Previously 2.2 million ounces Inferred using a 0.5g/t cut-off 
or 1.7 million ounces Inferred at a 0.8g/t cut-off 
3. Previously 0.5 million ounces Indicated using a 0.5g/t cut-off 
or 0.3 million ounces Indicated at a 0.8g/t cut-off 
4. Based on total Yaoure exploration expenditure of US$22m between 
Q4 2011 and H1 2013 (2011: US$1.6m, 2012: US$14.0m, 2013: 
US$6.4m)
