The company further announced that trucking of material at its neighbouring Sega Gold Project were expected to commence in mid-2013.

Peter Spivey, Chief Executive Officer of Amara, said: "We look ahead to uninterrupted production in 2013 as the Sega project comes online. With a resource update expected for Yaoure in in the first quarter and the feasibility study for Baomahun anticipated later in the first half, we will move closer to our goal of becoming a mid-tier producer."
