Perth, Mar 28, 2017 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Alara Resources Limited (ASX:AUQ) (OTCMKTS:ALULF) (Alara or Company) provides this update on activities in Oman.

Previous Company announcements and other public reports[1] have referred to the establishment of Mining Development Oman ('MDO') and its objectives, including the development of copper (and other minerals) mining in Oman. Alara and MDO have now signed a Memorandum of Understanding and Confidentiality Agreement in connection with these objectives (the 'MOU").

Alara's discussions with other interested parties (including potential project equity partners for Oman) are continuing, subject to the terms of the MOU.

While Alara remains open to receiving equity investment at the project level, this is not a requirement for the Al Hadeetha Copper Gold Project to proceed. Further updates on project financing will be released as they are finalised.

Further to the Activity Update released on 27 February 2017, the Company also confirms it has submitted a park enhancement plan to the Ministry of Tourism as agreed.
