African Eagle Resources calls Ambassador Paul Rupia to the board

African Eagle Resources (LON:AFE) said it has appointed Ambassador Paul Rupia as an independent non-executive director with immediate effect.

Ambassador Rupia is an internationally known and well respected Tanzanian statesman with over 49 years experience in the Tanzanian public service.

He twice represented Tanzania as ambassador to the United Nations, was ambassador to Ethiopia and deputy high commissioner to the UK and also served his country as a member of parliament and in several high-level ministerial posts.

Ambassador Rupia is a member of various charitable boards including chairman of DCB Commercial Bank PLC, chairman of the Britain-Tanzania Society and St John's University of Tanzania.

African Eagle chairman Dr Chris Pointon said: "Ambassador Rupia will bring vital in-country knowledge, experience and contacts to the board, which will be instrumental in guiding us as we seek to bring the Dutwa project through feasibility study, development and construction, and ultimately into production."

African Eagle is a mining explorer and developer with development projects in Tanzania and Zambia.  Its flagship project is the Dutwa nickel project in Tanzania.

It aims to publish a bankable feasibility study (BFS) for the Dutwa project in the first quarter of next year, while targeting production at the site by the end of 2015.
