ASX/MEDIA RELEASE

OMAN PROJECT UPDATE:

ADDITIONAL HIGH GRADE COPPER & GOLD MINERALISATION DISCOVERED

Alara Resources Limited (ASX: AUQ) (Alara or Company) is pleased to announce results of the first three drill holes from the infill drilling program at the Washihi copper-gold deposit in Oman. The results identify new high grade copper and gold mineralisation as potential resource outside the current Washihi Resource Model.

The recent feasibility study considered a 14MT JORC Resource1 contained within the Washihi licence area. This resource provides the cornerstone for development of the Al Hadeetha Project. In addition to this 14MT resource, additional high grade copper and gold mineralization has now been confirmed near surface at Washihi and is being considered for incorporation into the resource model.

These results follow analyses of 150 samples (excluding QC samples) received from RC drill holes WH16RD012 (complete), WH16RD013 (partial) and WH16RD014 (partial). Please refer to Figure 1 below for location of these holes with respect to the Washihi deposit.

These drill holes targeted central parts of the inferred resource classification at Washihi and have now confirmed the expected continuity of copper mineralisation, plus a new massive sulphide intersection achieved in Hole WH16RD012 between 20m and 25m depths. This was foreshadowed in a previous announcement2 and sits outside the current resource model. This hole also intersected leached zone with significant gold and silver values. Please refer to Table 1 below for significant intersections and Figure 2 cartoon of geological section showing additional mineralisation intersected in the hole.

A synopsis of remaining results shall be reported after completion of drilling, along with full analyses of samples which is expected by the end of the month.

Alara CEO, Mr Justin Richard said: "It is pleasing to see a positive feasibility study and discovery of additional high grade copper and gold mineralisation at Washihi in the first half of 2016. In tandem, the Washihi mining licence application and project financing are progressing well. We look forward to providing further updates as we move towards completion of the infill drilling program."
