Exploration Program Underway on Amera's Esperanza Gold Project, Peru

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - June 13, 2005) - Amera Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AMS) is pleased to announce that the Company has mobilized an exploration team to its 16,000 hectare Esperanza Gold Project, located in the prolific Miocene Gold-Silver Belt in Arequipa Department, southern Peru. The Phase II exploration program consists of a 30 person camp and will include ground geophysics, detailed geologic mapping, sampling and reconnaissance of the recently expanded land package adjoining Cia. de Minas Buenaventura S.A.A.'s ("Buenaventura") Poracota Gold discovery.

Six gold targets have been identified to date on the Esperanza Project, including "Zona Ventana", an epithermal alteration zone with anomalous gold extending for more than one kilometre along an incised river valley and occurring over a minimum of 150 metres of vertical thickness. In addition to highly anomalous gold, elevated epithermal pathfinder elements occur over the entire length of the zone (see February 10, 2005 news release).

Two kilometres to the to south of Zona Ventana, a similar epithermal alteration and gold mineralization has been discovered at "Zona Afuera". The entire region has recently seen an increase in exploration activity with Peruvian-based Buenaventura directing a significant portion of its exploration budget to the development of the neighbouring Poracota Gold Project.

Quantec Geoscience Peru S.A.C. has been contracted to carry out a minimum of 31 line kilometres of pole-dipole IP/resistivity and ground magnetics over the Zona Ventana-Zona Afuera corridor. Further detailed mapping and sampling will also be carried out in the area. The results of the Phase II program will be used to prioritize targets for trenching and drill testing in the Zona Ventana-Zona Afuera area. In addition, crews will carry out reconnaissance prospecting and sampling over the additional 12,000 hectare land package Amera recently staked between the Zona Ventana/Afuera area and the Poracota Gold Project.

The Phase II exploration program on the Esperanza Project will be carried out under the supervision of John A. Brophy, P.Geo., a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Amera is leveraging its extensive contact network, is actively exploring in Argentina, Peru and Nevada and continues to negotiate for the acquisition of additional properties in the Americas.
