Drill Program started at Anuoro License, Ghana West Africa

VANCOUVER, Sept. 27, 2011 /CNW/ - The Company (AMI Resources Inc. - TSX-V Symbol AMU) wishes to announce that Newmont Ghana Gold Limited, a subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE: NEM) has commenced an RC drill program on the NORTH & NORTH WEST soil and geophysical anomalies identified on the Anuoro license. The main North soil anomaly has a strike length of 1.6 km and a width of up to 300 m. Based on recent trench results of 31m @0.22 g/t Au, 10m @0.57 g/t Au and previous 2010 RC results from holes ANRC017 44m @ 1.13 g/t Au and ANRC015 23m @ 1.15 g/t Au. A total of 14 Holes for 1,400 m are planned to further test the extension of this zone.

The NW measures at least 0.5 km long by 0.2 km wide with the potential of extending the strike length for another 300 m or so to the south. Trench #7 located in the NW sector had an intercept of 12 m @1.13 g/t Au (including 6 m @ 2.05 g/t Au) within volcaniclastic rocks with some quartz stringers and veins. A total of 18 RC holes for 1600m are planned for this zone.

Also results from the soil program at the southern portion of the Anuoro license has identified a >2km long by 400m wide soil anomaly. Geologically, the anomaly points to a mineralized contact between the metavolcanic and the Tarkwaian units. A trenching program is planned to begin this month over this southern anomaly, prior to a drill program if warranted.

Newmont under an option agreement has the right to earn an initial 51% interest in the Anuoro license by spending US$2,000,000 in work expenditures and property payments during a three-year period. Newmont has advised the Company that they have spent over US$600,000 in 2010, and have presented the Company with a $640,000 exploration budget going forward into 2011.
