LSE: EMED; TSX: EMD

                                                       20 March 2014

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


                       APPOINTMENT OF DIRECTORS


EMED Mining, the Europe-based minerals development and exploration
company, is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has
appointed Isaac Querub as Chief Executive Officer and a director of
EMED with effect from 20th March 2014. Mr Querub has also been
appointed as a Vice President of EMED's subsidiary, EMED Tartessus.

In addition, the Board of Directors has appointed Alberto Lavandeira as
Chief Executive Officer of its subsidiary, EMED Tartessus and a
director and Chief Operating Officer of EMED with effect from 14th
April 2014.

As part of these management changes, Rod Halliday, who has been interim
Chief Executive Officer of EMED, will step into a temporary advisory
role to assist the new management.

Rod Halliday and John Leach, the Chief Financial Officer of EMED, will
both step down from the Board of EMED with immediate effect.

Ronnie Beevor, EMED's Chairman of the Board of Directors, commented:"As we
approach the final stages of permitting, there is no better team
to take us through this process than Isaac and Alberto. Isaac is a
proven leader with outstanding communication skills, business vision
and the ability to bring the Rio Tinto project to completion, while
Alberto is a mining professional of the highest calibre, who has
enormous experience in delivering projects on time and on budget.""The
addition of Isaac and Alberto to lead EMED in our next phase of
development is a most exciting prospect. We do not believe we could
have hired two more dedicated and appropriate professionals to take
EMED forward.""I would like to thank Rod Halliday for his outstanding
contribution to
EMED. He has handled his role with great professionalism and moved the
Company with diligence and consistency through a delicate period in
which he advanced the permitting of the Rio Tinto project.""Rod and John
have served the Board enormously, and I thank them for
their time and commitment. As we focus on our main project, it is
important to reinforce our Spanish leadership at the highest level."
