THE BOURSE WHISPERER: Auroch Minerals (ASX: AOU) advised that it has given current non-executive director Edward Mason a bigger seat at the Boardroom table by appointing hm as non-executive chairman.
Auroch Minerals said it believes Mason to have the necessary skill that will complement the next phase of development of the company, with its primary focus on the exploration of its 100 per cent-owned Saints and Leinster nickel sulphide projects.
Mason’s appointment follows the resignation of Glenn Whiddon as chairman and director of Auroch.
“On behalf of the company, I would like to thank Glenn for his commitment, support, dedication and guidance over the years and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours,” Auroch Minerals managing director Aidan Platel said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
The Auroch Board will now comprise Aidan Platel as managing director, Mason as non-executive chairman, and Chris Hansen as non-executive director.
“I have known Ed for more than 10 years in various roles in the natural resources capital markets arena in Australia and globally, and believe that together with Aidan and Chris Hansen, the company has an experienced board and senior management team to build and grow Auroch over the coming years as a base metal explorer and developer in Australia,” Glenn Whiddon said in response.
