Amera Reports High-Grade Gold and Copper Results From Cocha Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 4, 2007) - Amera Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AMS)(OTCBB:AJRSF)(FRANKFURT:OAY)(WKN:A0B54E)is pleased to report results from 41 additional rock samples collected on the East Cocha Gold-Copper-Silver Zone, the first gold mineralized zone to be identified on the 7,060 hectare Cocha property. The high gold values combined with reconnaissance geologic mapping outline a bonanza gold target over widths up to 2m that intermittently outcrops over 600m of strike length and potentially extends up to 2km. A Phase II drill program and additional surface exploration is expected to commence shortly.

A total of 41 rock samples including grab samples and chip channel samples ranging from 0.1 to 4.0m were collected from the East Zone where previous assays of up to 6.97 g/t gold, 53.4 g/t silver and 3.1% copper over 0.7m were reported. Results range from less than 0.05 g/t to 22.40 g/t gold, less than 0.2 to 329 g/t silver and 40 ppm to 66,800 ppm Cu (6.68%). A summary of significant results is provided in Table 1 and plotted on Figure 1. To view Figure 1 please click on the following link:

Highlights from length-weighted averaged results include:

- 22.00 g/t gold, 16.2 g/t silver and 3.68% copper over 0.6m

- 4.58 g/t gold, 8.2 g/t silver and 2.30% copper over 1.2m

- 8.56 g/t gold, 95.7 g/t silver and 3.57% copper over 1.0m

- 3.13 g/t gold, 60.0 g/t silver and 2.70% copper over 1.9m

The East Cocha Zone discovery resulted from Amera's reconnaissance exploration program across its large Cocha claim block. Work to date has identified four main mineralized zones. Drilling along the Discovery Outcrop Trend at the Central Cocha Target in 2006 intersected 30.23m grading 2.67% copper and 24.1 g/t silver in diamond drill hole COCHA-06-03 (see October 17, 2006 News Release).

Technical Summary

The East Cocha gold-silver-copper target is located 4.5km southeast of Central Cocha. Numerous old workings exist in the area and are believed to date back to the 1960s. The area is underlain by red sandstones and volcaniclastic rocks of the Mitu Group. No intrusive rocks have been noted in the area to date.

The mineralized quartz-barite vein is hosted in fault gouge and dips approximately 45 degrees toward the northeast and crosscuts foliated slate and mudstone. The zone is exposed in 10 historic mine workings consisting of underground adits, open cuts and prospect pits, where the vein was extracted by artensanal miners.

Historic underground workings occur 500m to the southeast of the East Cocha Zone with the intervening area masked by glacial alluvial cover. The zone projects beneath soil cover to the northwest. Surface exploration is planned along the 2km projected strike length target. Detailed structural geologic mapping, trenching, soil geochemistry and induced polarization (IP) surveys are planned to delineate the buried extensions and to identify additional parallel structures.

An additional 41 rock chip samples have been collected in addition to the previously reported 13 rock samples ranging from grab samples to 10m chip samples. Gold values from the zone range from less than 0.05 ppm to 22.0 g/t, over 0.6m, and average 2.6 g/t (see Table 1). Silver values range from less than 0.2 to 329 g/t, over 2.1m, and average 35.7 g/t. Copper values range from 40 ppm to 66,800 ppm (6.68%), over 0.35m, and average 10,947 ppm (1.01%). A program of additional rock and soil sampling is underway to further delineate the mineralization and locate drill targets. In addition an access road is being constructed to facilitate trenching and eventual drill testing of the East Cocha Zone.

ALS Chemex Laboratories, an internationally recognized assay service provider, in Lima, Peru and North Vancouver, Canada, performed analyses for the samples reported herein.
