About Amara Mining plc



Amara (formerly Cluff Gold) is a gold developer-producer with assets in

West Africa. The Company generates significant cash flow through its

Kalsaka gold mine in Burkina Faso, where the production profile has

been enhanced by the recent acquisition of the neighbouring Sega

project. Amara remains focused on its objective of becoming a mid-tier

producer through the development of its Baomahun project in Sierra

Leone and its Yaoure project in Cote d'Ivoire. With its experience of

bringing new mines into production and a project pipeline spanning

three countries, Amara aims to further increase its production profile

with its highly prospective exploration work across all assets.
