Chief Executive Officer Transition


Chaarat (AIM:CGH), the AIM-quoted gold mining Company with an operating mine in Armenia and assets at various stages of development in the Kyrgyz Republic   announces that   Artem Volynets will step down by mutual agreement from his role as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Executive Director   with immediate effect   and will move into a senior adviser role.


The   Company ' s Executive Chairman, Martin Andersson, will serve as interim CEO until the formal appointment of a successor to Artem.  As part of the Company ' s evolving strategic requirements, earlier this year the Board appointed a leading global executive search firm to support its succession planning process. The Company has already reviewed a number of potential candidates for the role and is in advanced discussions with a preferred potential candidate. The Company will provide an update in due course.


Artem  will  assume the role of senior adviser to the business leveraging his experience in   the mining industry across the former Soviet Union.   In his future role, Artem will  focus on  developing merger and acquisition opportunities in the region and assisting with capital market activities .


Artem Volynets said: "Being part of Chaarat's dynamic evolution over the past three years has been immensely fulfilling and I look forward to my continued association with the Company in my new role as senior adviser."


The Board   sincerely   thanks   Artem for his role as CEO over the development of   Chaarat   throughout his three-year tenure and wishes him well on his transition to his new position   with the Company and his new endeavours.  


Martin Andersson,   Executive Chairman of Chaarat, said:  " I would like to thank Artem for all his hard work and dedication to Chaarat over the past three years.   Artem led Chaarat through the Group ' s  transformation from an exploration company to  a producer . Together with his team, he has created a solid foundation for our next stage of development.   Artem will, in his new capacity and as a long-term shareholder, continue to add value to the business moving forward. The team and I look forward to continuing to work with Artem as the business advances its strategic  initiatives".
