('Empire' or the 'Company')

Board Change

Empire Metals Limited, the AIM-quoted resource exploration and development company, announces that Mr Michael ('Mike') Struthers, Non-Executive Director, is stepping down from the Board with immediate effect. The Board would like to thank Mike for his commitment and contribution over the past four years and wish him well.

Shaun Bunn, Managing Director, said: "Mike has been a trusted and extremely knowledgeable board member over the past four years, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his significant input. During his three years as CEO, he worked tirelessly to advance the Company's then-Georgian assets, navigating the various external challenges the business faced towards finding a positive outcome for shareholders. Since our strategic move away from Georgia in 2020, Mike has been a huge advocate for our exploration and development initiatives in Australia and I am sure he will continue his support for our work as a shareholder of the Company."

Neil O'Brien, Chairman, said: "I would like to extend my thanks to Mike for his significant efforts over the past four years and his influence in reshaping the future of the Company. Mike possesses a wealth of technical experience, and he was instrumental in the formation of our new portfolio of assets in Australia. It is important to note this depth of technical experience is retained through Shaun, supported by the technical team that Shaun has built over the past 12 months and who are now largely located in Australia, the location of our now expanded exploration footprint. I believe this is a logical and pragmatic development given the changes and growth of the business over the past 12 months, and one which reflects the profile and focus of the Company. I wish Mike the very best for the future and I look forward to our providing regular updates to the market documenting our continued progress at the Eclipse-Gindalbie Gold Project and our newly acquired Pitfield Copper-Gold Project, Walton Copper-Gold Project and the Stavely Copper-Gold Project."
