The Company also announces that Mr Simon Retter has resigned from his position as Non-Executive Director with immediate effect to dedicate more time to his other business ventures.

Charles Bray, Chairman of Aterian, commented:

“I am very pleased to welcome Graham to the Company as Chief Financial Officer. Graham provided excellent financial and accounting support and advice throughout our recent acquisition and listing on the LSE Main Market and is already very familiar with the Company.

“Graham brings extensive financial, commercial and international experience which will complement the capabilities of the existing management team, which includes our newly-appointed COO, announced on the 8th November 2022. We are confident that our expanded team has the skills necessary to execute our ambitious exploration plans in both Morocco and Rwanda. As the demand for green metals increases and we prove up our portfolio of assets, we plan to become a significant supplier and trader of critical and strategic metals in Africa.

“I would also like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Board of Directors to thank Simon Retter for all his past contributions. Simon has been with the Company since its inception; his insight, experience, and support have been essential, especially over the past few years, and we wish him well with his new endeavours.”
