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  Côte  d'Ivoire.  With its experience of bringing new mines into production  and  a  project  pipeline
spanning  Burkina  Faso, Côte d'Ivoire and Mali, Amara aims to further increase its production  profile  with  its
highly prospective exploration work across all assets.
