                        EMED Mining Public Limited
                     ("EMED Mining" or the "Company")

                           Update of Progress
                      at the RioTintoCopper Project


EMED Mining, the Europe-based minerals development and exploration
company, is pleased to report progress at its Rio Tinto Copper Project
in Spain (the "Project").

The Ministry of Environment and Land Planning ('Environment') of the
Government of Andalusia has issued a "compatibility report" in relation
to the reopening of the Rio Tinto mine in the province of Huelva
stating that there are no inconsistencies in any environmental aspects
of the Project.

The compatibility report is an internal report between the departments
of Environment and the Ministry of Economy, Innovation, Science and
Jobs, by which Environment has provided the competent body - the
Department of Industry, Energy and Mines, with confirmation that there
are no inconsistencies.

This was announced on Thursday 16 January 2014 by the Director General
of Industry, Energy and Mines of the Junta de Andalucia, Maria Jose
Asensio, in a press conference in Seville along with the Minister of
Economy, Innovation, Science and Jobs, Jose Sanchez Maldonado.

Rod Halliday, Interim Managing Director and CEO of EMED Mining
commented:"The Company has been assured that everyone is working
intensively on
the Environmental Dictamen and it will be issued as soon as possible.
The fact that this statement has been made with the agreement of both
departments is an extremely significant step as they are both
publically acknowledging that the Project is workable from an
environmental perspective."
