Oriole Resources PLC

Non-Executive Chair Appointment

RNS Number : 8106A
Oriole Resources PLC
07 February 2022

Oriole Resources PLC 

('Oriole Resources' or 'the Company' or 'the Group')


Non-Executive Chair Appointment


Further to its announcement on 15 December 2021, Oriole Resources (AIM: ORR), the AIM-quoted exploration company focussed on West Africa, is pleased to announce that Eileen Carr will join the Board on 17 February 2022. Eileen will assume the role of Non-Executive Chair, replacing the current Chair, John McGloin, who is stepping down from the Board to focus on his new appointment as CEO of TSX.V-listed Diamond Fields Resources Inc.


Oriole Resources CEO Tim Livesey said:

"The last three years have been transformational for the Company. Our market capitalisation has more than doubled and we have also seen a significant advancement of our Senegalese asset, the development of our new frontier exploration targets in Cameroon and the rationalisation across the legacy assets leading to significant reductions in G&A. This significant progress has occurred under John's stewardship and guidance, and I would like to thank him personally, and on behalf of the Company, for his help in steering the Company during this period. We wish him well with his future endeavours. 

"We are delighted that Eileen has agreed to join the Group later this month. We look forward to working with her and, with Eileen's extensive experience of the mining industry and previous board positions, she will help us to continue the successful development of the Company's portfolio."
