Appointment of Independent Non-Executive Director

Central Asia Metals plc (AIM: CAML) is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Mike Armitage to the CAML Board as an Independent Non-Executive Director, effective 10 January 2022. Dr Armitage will also join the Sustainability Committee.

Dr Armitage has some thirty-five years' experience in the mining industry. After spending his early career working underground as a geologist in South Africa, in 1991 Dr Armitage joined SRK Consulting where he has since held varied roles and from which he will be leaving on 7 January 2022. In addition to his technical work at SRK, producing resource estimates and managing feasibility and due diligence studies, his roles have included Managing Director and Chairman of SRK's UK practice and Chairman of SRK's Russia and Kazakhstan practices. He also spent six years as Chairman of SRK Global. Dr Armitage is also a founding director of Sarn Helen Gold Ltd, and is currently a Non-Executive Director of Tertiary Minerals PLC.

Dr Armitage completed his PhD assessing alternative methods of reserve estimation at the Renco Mine in Zimbabwe, and has written several papers on resource and reserve estimation methodology and reporting. He has spent many years as joint course co-ordinator of a MSc in Mineral Resources at Cardiff University and then as external examiner for the MSc in Metals and Energy Finance at Imperial College, University of London. He has also been a council member and Vice President of the Geological Society and is currently Chairman of the Applied Earth Science Division of IOM3 and Honorary Chairman of the Critical Minerals Association.

Nick Clarke, Non-Executive Chairman, Commented:

"We are delighted to welcome Mike to the Board as an Independent Non-Executive Director. His wealth of international technical experience will support management and be invaluable to the Board, both in terms of our current operations and with our business development activities. Mike's long career with SRK in particular has seen him review, assist with due diligence, and help to develop numerous mineral properties globally, therefore he has the technical calibre that the CAML Nomination Committee believes is crucial in overseeing a successful mining business for the long term."
