Appointment of Director

Globally experienced geologist James Hogg MSc. BSc. MAIG appointed as non-Executive Director

BWA Group plc [AQSE: BWAP], which has seven mineral exploration licences split between Canada and Cameroon at various stages of development and is quoted on London’s AQSE Growth Market (formerly NEX), has appointed James Hogg MSc. BSc. MAIG as a non-Executive Director of the Company. 

James is Principal Geologist and Managing Director of Addison Mining Services (“Addison”) and has over 20 years of experience across several geographies and mineral types.  Having spent the early part of his career with major mining houses Delta Gold, Sons of Gwalia and Newmont Mining in Australia, he moved into a consulting geologist role with ACA Howe in 2005, before moving to Micromine, a leading mining technology business.  Addison, an independent mining consulting and technical advisory business, was founded by James in 2014 and it has been advising BWA on its Cameroon rutile sands project for the past year, and, more recently, also its Canadian assets.  Addison will continue to provide technical consulting services to the Company. 

Richard Battersby, Non-Executive Chairman, said:  “James’s extensive mineral expertise and experience from across the global mining industry covers gold, base metals, palladium and also the other minerals found in BWA’s rutile sands investment in Cameroon including kyanite and ilmenite. 

We have got to know him well during the last year in relation to our Cameroon assets and look forward to him bringing his expertise to our gold, nickel and palladium projects in Canada too.  Given his extensive qualifications and significant experience, his ability to supervise and prepare CPR, JORC 2012, and NI 43-101 reports and mineral resource estimates will be invaluable to BWA’s investment in mineral licences, project development, and future opportunities.”
