Amera Options Three Gold Projects in Peru

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 27, 2008) - Amera Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AMS)(OTCBB:AJRSF)(FRANKFURT:OAY)(WKNA0B54E) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent with Geologix Explorations Inc. to earn up to a 70% interest in three gold properties totaling 3,200 hectares in Huancavelica Department, south-central Peru. The properties are all located within the prolific Southern Peru Epithermal Gold-Silver Belt that hosts the Liam, Santa Rosa, Orcopampa and Rescatada deposits.

"These three exciting gold projects are a great addition to Amera's property portfolio," stated Mr. Nikolaos Cacos, President and C.E.O. "Besides enhancing our exposure to gold, these properties present us with an excellent opportunity in making a significant discovery. Furthermore, we are pleased to have Geologix as a partner."

All three properties are located in a highly prospective geological environment characterized by hydrothermally-altered and geochemically anomalous Tertiary volcanic rocks typical of epithermal systems. This combined with nearby competitor activity and the location of the Geologix properties within the prolific Southern Peru Epithermal Gold-Silver belt makes these targets a high priority for Amera. A program of ground geophysics, detailed surface sampling and trenching aimed at delineating drill targets for testing by the end of 2008 will be commencing shortly.

Toro Blanco

Evidence of both high and low sulfidation gold mineralization is present on the 900ha Toro Blanco property where vuggy silica and quartz stockwork yield anomalous gold values. A total of 255 rock samples and 550 soil samples have been collected to date by Geologix defining a 1km by 1.5km gold-in-soil anomaly with results ranging from 0.005 to 662 ppm gold. Rock sample analyses range from 0.02 to 1.0 ppm gold. PIMA clay mineral surveys, multi-element geochemistry and regional geologic mapping suggest a high sulfidation system with low sulfidation overprint. The primary target is a high-temperature zone of epithermal mineralization at a shallow depth beneath the surface. Detailed geologic mapping, induced polarization geophysical studies (IP) and trenching will be used to delineate drill targets.

San Felipe

On the San Felipe property silicified ribs, pebble dikes and low sulfidation epithermal veins within a volcanic dome have been identified by Geologix work. A total of 201 rock samples and 229 soil samples have been collected to date. Rock sample assays range from 0.005 to 0.708 ppm gold in high sulfidation style zones and from 0.005 to 0.278 ppm in low sulfidation veins. Gold values are associated with anomalous epithermal pathfinder elements arsenic-antimony-mercury. The primary exploration targets on San Felipe are high sulfidation mantos and low sulfidation veins. Amera plans detailed geologic mapping and induced polarization (IP) geophysical surveys to delineate drill targets.


The 1,900ha Sura property covers a 300m by 550m gold-in-soil anomaly with sample values ranging from 0.02 to 0.17 ppm gold. A larger but more poorly defined gold-in-soil anomaly extends 1.5km by 300m. A total of 160 rock samples and 180 soil samples have been collected from the property to date; rock analyses range from 0.005 to 0.12 ppm gold. Additional soil sampling is planned as well as geologic mapping and induced polarization (IP) surveying to outline high sulfidation bulk mineable gold targets.

Option Terms

In order to earn an initial 51% undivided interest in these projects, Amera must complete US$3,800,000 in exploration expenditures on each of the properties, including a minimum of $100,000 exploration commitment during the first year. Amera may earn an additional 10% interest in each of these projects by completing a positive feasibility study on each property within three years of earning its 51% interest. A further 9% interest may be earned by Amera by placing the property into commercial production within six years of earning its initial interest, for an aggregate 70% interest in the property.

If Amera does not complete a positive feasibility study by the third anniversary, Geologix may elect to become operator and if it completes a positive feasibility study within two years, Geologix may earn an additional 11% interest and if it places the property into commercial production, an additional 10 percent for an aggregate 70% interest in the property.
