EMED Mining Public Limited, the Europe-based minerals development and
exploration company, ("EMED Mining" or the "Company") is pleased to
announce that it has conditionally raised GBP3,542,140 (before expenses)
by way of a private placement of 41,672,243 new ordinary shares of 0.25
pence each (the "Placing Shares") at an issue price of 8.5 pence each
(the "Placing Price") in the United Kingdom Canada. (the "Placing").

The Placing was effected by the Company's brokers in the UK and Canada,
Fox-Davies Capital Limited ("Fox-Davies") and Canaccord Genuity Corp.
("Canaccord") respectively.

The Placing is subject to the conditional approval of the Toronto Stock
Exchange and the Placing Shares being admitted to trading on the AIM
market of the London Stock Exchange ("Admission"). Admission is
expected to occur, and trading in the Placing Shares on AIM is expected
to commence, at 8.00 a.m. (BST) on 29 August 2012. Listing of the
Placing Shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange is expected to commence on
the same date.

The net proceeds of the Placing will be largely applied in funding the
cash consideration for the recently announced acquisitions of certain
land plots (covering large parts of the tailings dams and waste dumps)
adjoining the Rio Tinto Copper Mine.

Following the issue of the Placing Shares, the Company will have a
total of 1,046,275,252ordinary shares in issue. The Placing Shares will
represent approximately 4 per cent. of the enlarged issued share
capital of the Company.

The Company has agreed to grant to each of Fox Davies and Canaccord
warrants to subscribe at the Placing Price for such number new ordinary
shares in the Company as is equal to 5% of the Placing Shares
subscribed by investors procured by them. Accordingly, an aggregate of
2,083,612 warrants will be issued to Fox-Davies and Canaccord. Such
warrants are granted conditional on Admission and expire on the fifth
anniversary of Admission.

Harry Anagnostaras-Adams, Managing Director, said: "The two recently
announced purchases of all the lands required for waste deposition at
the Rio Tinto Copper Mine successfully dealt with the last remaining
significant legacy issue.""The support from our shareholders in
parallel with this recent breakthrough is greatly appreciated,
especially during such weak capital market conditions internationally."
"Meanwhile, we have been working hard with all parties to trigger the
Rio Tinto Copper Mine restart by the end of 2012 - with the
infrastructure in place, a proven resource to mine and financing
arrangements conditionally agreed, we are well positioned to recommence
mining operations as early as possible once regulatory approvals
permit."
