Board change and update


The Board of Premier African Minerals Limited ("Premier" or the "Company") Limited ("Premier" or the "Company") announces that Mr Michael Foster has today resigned as a non-executive director and chairman of the Company and simultaneously the following update on the progress of the operations at Zimbabwe.

George Roach, CEO, commented: "my thanks and appreciation to Michael Foster for taking on our chairmanship on an interim basis last year at a very difficult time, and for his stewardship and guidance since then as Premier continues to develop the strategic relationship with MNH Holding Limited ("MNH"). I have agreed to act for a strictly limited period initially of 30 days as the interim Chairman. This should be considered as another step in support of Premier's efforts in the restructuring and diversification of both country and commodity risk with Premier's principal focus being the need for a cash generative asset. The recent addition to our board of Neil Herbert, and the proposed appointment of another representative from MNH in due course, are all aimed at revitalising our Company and aligning the best mutual interest of both Premier and MNH.

I do take the opportunity to update on other activities and I am pleased to be able to confirm that we have a further invitation to attend a meeting with the Mining Affairs Board in Harare at the end of this month in regard to the ongoing exclusive prospecting order application at our Zulu Lithium and Tantalum project.

In respect of RHA Tungsten Mine, site work has commenced with the construction of a suitable substation for electrification of the mine and we have also been able to better assess the overall funding still required that National Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment Fund are committed to provide under the terms of the revised Management Agreement. I expect to be in a position to better assess the timeline for a return to production thereafter."
