With respect to forward looking information contained in this news release, assumptions have been made regarding, among other things: general business, economic and mining industry conditions; interest rates and foreign exchange rates; mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates; geological and metallurgical assumptions (including with respect to the size, grade and recoverability of mineral resources and mineral reserves) and cost estimates on which the mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates are based; the parameters and assumptions employed in the New Liberty Technical Report, (including but not limited to, those relating to construction, future mining and operating costs, processing and recovery rates, net present values and internal rates of return, timing for the commencement of production, tax and royalty rates, future gold prices, metallurgical rates, pit design, operations and management, grades, the base case analysis and the proposed budget for further exploration plans and objectives); the supply and demand for commodities and precious and base metals and the level and volatility of the prices of gold; market competition; the ability of the Company to raise sufficient funds from capital markets and/or debt to meet its future obligations and planned activities; the business of the Company including the continued exploration of its properties; the political environments and legal and regulatory frameworks in Liberia and Cameroon with respect to, among other things, the ability of the Company to obtain, maintain, renew and/or extend required permits, licences, authorizations and/or approvals from the appropriate regulatory authorities and the ability of the Company to continue to obtain qualified staff and equipment in a timely and cost-efficient manner to meet its demand. Assumptions used in the preparation of such information, although considered reasonable by Aureus at the time of preparation, may prove to be incorrect.

Any mineral resource and mineral reserve figures referred to in this press release are estimates and no assurances can be given that the indicated levels of minerals will be produced. Such estimates are expressions of judgment based on knowledge, mining experience, analysis of drilling results and industry practices. Valid estimates made at a given time may significantly change when new information becomes available. While the Company believes that the mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates in respect of its properties are well established, by their nature mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates are imprecise and depend, to a certain extent, upon statistical inferences which may ultimately prove unreliable. If such mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates are inaccurate or are reduced in the future, this could have a material adverse impact on the Company. Due to the uncertainty that may be attached to inferred mineral resources, it cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will be upgraded to an indicated or measured mineral resource as a result of continued exploration. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Flights to Bamako and Dakar are operated on Boeing 757-200 with a capacity of 148 seats (16 in Business Class and 132 in Economy); after 1 June, they will be on Boeing 737-700 (12 seats in Business Class and 112 seats in Economy). These two new destinations will round off the service offering of Equatorial Congo Airlines, which already provides services to and from Cotonou (Benin), Douala (Cameroon), Libreville (Gabon) and Kinshasa (DRC) as part of its regional network.

Equatorial Congo Airlines now connects Brazzaville to eleven destinations:

_ Domestic network: Pointe-Noire and Ollombo.

_ Regional network: Kinshasa (river shuttle), Libreville, Douala, Cotonou, Bamako, Dakar.

_ International network: Paris, Dubai, Brussels (connecting from Paris).

The new Brazzaville-Dakar route via Bamako offers new opportunities to business and leisure travellers from Senegal and Mali, who will be able to connect easily with the ECAir network via its Brazzaville hub, in particular for destinations such as Paris, Dubai, Kinshasa and Cotonou…

“The new routes (Libreville, Dakar, Bamako) are the fulfilment of our efforts to connect the African economic capitals with each other and with the rest of the world,” says Fatima Beyina-Moussa, Managing Director of ECAir and President of the African Airlines Association (AFRAA). “We are going to continue our expansion with the opening of the next destinations (Yaounde, Abidjan, Bangui, N’Djamena and Beirut). All of this is possible because with Maya-Maya, we have one of the most modern airports in Africa, with a high handling capacity. We are thus benefiting from the vision demonstrated by the President of the Republic, His Excellency Denis Sassou Nguesso, and his government, when they made significant investments in the construction and modernisation of the country’s airport infrastructure.”

To draw new passengers, ECAir is focusing on its African identity, its attractive rates, its reliable planes meeting international standards, and its dynamic, qualified and able personnel. In addition, the company boasts one of the best customer loyalty programs in Africa, “Mbote,” with close to 30,000 members.

Take advantage of the low prices offered by ECAir:

Brazzaville-Bamako: from XAF 263,000 (EUR 400) return ticket, all taxes included.

Boko Haram ‘weakened’ but still committing ‘horrendous’ acts, says UN regional envoy

30 March 2015 – As the Security Council met this morning to discuss threats to international peace and security caused by terrorism, top United Nations officials briefed the 15-member body on the impact of Boko Haram in Nigeria and beyond, warning of the group’s intensified violence and brutality.

“Though weakened, the group continues to commit horrendous acts against civilians, including against women and children,” said Mohamed Ibn Chambas, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the UN Office for West Africa (UNOWA). “Boko Haram’s recent allegiance to the Islamic State for Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), whether for publicity reasons or to tap into ISIL’s support, is also of concern as it is gives a clear signal that Boko Haram’s agenda goes well beyond Nigeria.”

Mr. Chambas, who was joined in the Council by Assistant Secretary-General Kyung Wha-Kang of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, outlined reports of the abduction, abuse, recruiting, maiming and killing of children, saying schools in the country’s north-east and in areas of Cameroon and Niger targeted by Boko Haram no longer safe places of learning, with many attacked, looted, and destroyed.

“In 2014, the group also commenced using young girls as suicide bombers for attacks in populated urban areas,” he said. “We have also observed an alarming trend of children being used by the group as human shields.”

Ms Kang described the humanitarian needs arising from Boko Haram attacks, saying that more than 7,300 civilians had been killed by Boko Haram since the beginning of 2014 in the three ‘state of emergency’ States, including 1,000 people this year alone.

As many as three million people in northern Nigeria would not be able to meet their basic food needs after July 2015 without humanitarian aid and the work of Federal and State authorities was not enough to meet those needs.

“The humanitarian situation in north-east Nigeria and in the conflict-affected areas in neighbouring countries remains dire,” said Ms. Kang. “The conflict continues to have a devastating impact on women, children and young people, as well as on many others who have been traumatized by violence. Additional funding to address the acute humanitarian needs of those affected by the conflict is urgently needed.”

She said Boko Haram’s activities had created tens of thousands of refugees, returnees and internally displaced people in Chad, Cameroon and Niger, with schools and health services badly affected, and frequent reports of gross human rights violations.

Mr. Chambas stressed the issue of human rights abuses, pointing to evaluation missions launched by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) that visited the Far North region of Cameroon and the Diffa region of Niger. Both found human rights abuses, including indiscriminate killing of civilians, abductions and forcible recruitment of civilians into combat.

Since Boko Haram attacks in Diffa in February, Mr. Chambas said schools in the region remained closed, depriving children of the right to be educated.

“The local economy in the Diffa region is also being negatively affected by a continuing State of Emergency,” he said. “In response to these and other concerns, the United Nations is in the process of scaling up its presence and operations in Nigeria, Niger and Cameroon.”

Mr. Chambas commended the response of the Lake Chad Basin Commission countries, notably the joint regional offensive, which involved troops from all four countries and which resulted in the recapture of several key towns in north-east Nigeria.

“At the beginning of the year, Boko Haram controlled some 20 local governmental districts in the three north-eastern states in Nigeria,” he said. “Today, Boko Haram holds only a few areas in Borno State. Moreover, according to reports by the Nigerian Army, on 27 March, Boko Haram’s headquarters in Gwoza was captured.”

Stressing UN support for such efforts, he underlined that counter-insurgency operations must be free from human rights violations.

“This is not only an absolutely vital principle, but also an effective strategy,” he said. “Communities which believe that their Government seeks to protect them are far more likely to cooperate with the authorities, and far less likely to support insurgent groups.”

He also reiterated the Secretary-General’s message that a military approach alone would not suffice in containing the Boko Haram threat, and stressed the international community’s obligation to help the countries of the region to address the social, economic and political challenges associated with Boko Haram.

Both Mr. Chambas and Ms Kang made reference to general elections that took place in Nigeria over the previous weekend. Mr. Chambas said that the observation mission by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) had noted only “pockets of incidents and logistical challenges,” with the elections passing the test as “free and transparent.”

Ms. Kang added that despite reports of suspected Boko Haram attacks in Yobe, Gombe and Borno States, no additional humanitarian needs had so far emerged as a result of the election.

Nigeria Election Winner Is…

It’s still too soon to tell. Some news reports suggest that the results will be released today. Others suggest that final results will be announced on Tuesday. In either case, the election was largely peaceful, except for a few instances. In one notable incident, election commission headquarters were torched in the heavily disputed Rivers state. Voting was also extended in some districts by one day after election-technology related glitches were reported. Here are a few #NigeriaDecides resources to follow today and tomorrow.

More than 20 countries have signed on as founding members. In the past month, major Western powers including Britain, France, Germany and Italy have also announced their intention to join. Australia had resisted joining, but a joint statement from Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop and Treasurer Joe Hockey said the Government would sign the MOU that would allow Australia to participate as a prospective founding member.” (ABC Online http://ab.co/19xSvst)
