Eurasia Mining Plc ("Eurasia" or the "Company"), the palladium, platinum, rhodium, iridium and gold producing company, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Mr. Kotaro Kosaka as a non-executive Director of the Company.

Mr Kosaka holds a Master's Degree from Stanford University (USA) as well as a BA Degree from Keio University (Japan). Following 13 years in management roles with Mitsubishi Corporation, Kotaro has focused on his chairman role of Kono Foundation, originally founded by Mr. Junzo Kosaka, also the founder of Shin-Etsu (41 Billion JPY market capitalisation and leading semiconductor manufacturer listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange).

Kono Foundation Previous Chairmen:

   --      Mr. Junzo Kosaka, 1st Chairman, also founder of Shinano Bank (now Mizuho Bank). 

-- Mr. Zentaro Kosaka, 2nd Chairman, Japanese politician who served as labour minister and two times as foreign minister, who opened diplomatic relation between China and Japan.

   --      Mr. Kenji Kosaka, 4th Chairman, Japanese politician who served as education minister. 

Christian Schaffalitzky, Executive Chairman of Eurasia commented: "We are delighted that Mr. Kosaka has decided to join Eurasia as a non-executive director. We see significant interest from Japan in PGM and battery metals assets, as Japan moves towards net zero-emission goals and the hydrogen economy. With JOGMEC and Hanwa having already acquired PGM assets in South Africa, the Japanese players are interested to further expand their presence in lower cost and energy abundant mining jurisdictions. Mr. Kosaka's appointment is a part of the execution of our strategy as previously announced".
