Klaus Eckhof Appointed to Alphamin Board of Directors

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 5, 2013) - The Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Klaus Eckhof as Chief Executive Officer and President of Alphamin Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AFM) Mr Eckhof replaces Mr Cosme Maria Beccar Varela who will retain his position as non-executive Director.

The Board is delighted to have Mr Eckhof join the Board as he brings vast experience and management skills which will have a significant impact in the exploration and development of Alphamin's highly prospective mineral projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Mr Eckhof is a geologist with more than 20 years of experience developing mineral deposits throughout the globe including Africa. Mr Eckhof worked for Mount Edon Gold Mines Ltd as Business Development Manager before it was acquired by Canadian mining company Teck. In 1994, he founded Spinifex Gold Ltd and Lafayette Mining Ltd, both of which successfully delineated gold and base metal deposits. In late 2003, Mr Eckhof founded Moto Goldmines which acquired the Moto Gold Project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. There, Mr Eckhof and his team delineated more than 20 million ounces of gold and delivered a feasibility study within four years from the commencement of exploration. Moto Goldmines was subsequently acquired by Randgold Resources who poured first gold in September 2013.

"I am very excited to once again be heading up an exploration company with a substantial tin asset as well as a number of additional gold and tin targets which require urgent follow up" Mr Eckhof said. "Congo remains a challenging environment in which to operate and the Board is committed to strengthening its management and strategic partners in order to tackle these challenges."

The Board wishes to thank Mr Varela for his dedication to the Company since his appointment in 1997.
