NICOSIA, Cyprus, Feb. 9, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - EMED Mining Public Ltd ("EMED Mining" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the appointment of United States-based Mr Jasper Bertisen as a non-executive director of the Company as of 8 February 2012.  Mr Bertisen is replacing Mr Ross Bhappu, who has resigned as a director of the Company due to heavy work commitments.

Mr Bertisen joined RCF in 2004 and, since that time, has completed technical and commercial due diligence on a large number of mining companies with projects ranging from late stage exploration through production.
