Amara Mining gets new permit

West-African focused gold miner Amara Mining has been granted an environmental permit for a new project in Burkina Faso. On receipt of this permit, Amara can apply for its mining licence which should take six weeks. Mining is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2013. “The fact that the permitting process is clearly well underway is a positive development for the group,” said broker Investec.
