He was appointed after Stratex’s shareholders voted to remove Marcus Engelbrecht as chief executive and to scrap a proposed merger with Australian firm Crusader Resources Limited at a recent general meeting.

The strategic review includes the group’s investment in Thani Stratex Resources (TSR) assets in Djibouti and Egypt, the Dalafin project in Senegal and the Muratdere gold project in Turkey.

"The board and management are firmly looking to the future of Stratex and the current business review will enable important decisions to be made that will shape the future of the company,” Foster said.

“I believe our portfolio of projects and the Company's track record offer a sound platform from which to seek new investments that advance our ownership across the entire development curve.”
