EMED Mining Public Limited: Ownership of the Rio Tinto Copper Project is Clear

NICOSIA, CYPRUS--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2013) - EMED Mining Public Limited (TSX: EMD) (AIM: EMED)


13 November 2013                                                TSX: EMD


                     EMED Mining Public Limited

                  ("EMED Mining" or the "Company")

         Ownership of the Rio Tinto Copper Project is Clear

EMED Mining Public Limited confirms that its wholly owned Spanish
subsidiary, EMED Tartessus, S.L.U. is the legal owner of the Rio Tinto
mining rights, contrary to any implication made by a recent press
release from Trafigura Beheer BV ("Trafigura") reporting the existence
of a purchase option agreement between Trafigura and the "Comision
Liquidadora de Minas de Rio Tinto S.A." (a private company which has
been in liquidation since 2004) in relation to these mining rights.

As reported in EMED Mining's recent quarterly report, EMED Mining
remains focused on obtaining the permits required prior to site
start-up works - mainly the Environmental Plan (or "AAU") and
Administrative Standing (or "AS") and the EMED Mining team has been
working closely and effectively with the Government to achieve this
objective as soon as possible, with approval of the AAU expected by the
end of 2013 and AS shortly thereafter."
