Resignation of Director

Goldplat plc, the AIM quoted gold producer, with international gold recovery operations located in South Africa and Ghana, announces that Hansie Van Vreden, Goldplat's COO, has tendered his resignation in order to take up appointment as CEO of a specialist mining services company.

Goldplat and Hansie have agreed that he will remain at Goldplat until 31 May 2021 in order to provide an orderly transfer of his responsibilities within the Group. Given the existing management structure in the Group's gold recovery operations, and the planned disposal of the Group's Kilimapesa mining operation, Goldplat does not currently plan to seek a replacement as COO. Additionally, a process is currently underway to further strengthen the finance function through the appointment of a non-main board group financial director allowing the CEO, who currently has overall responsibility for Goldplat's finance function, greater focus on operational activities.

Commenting on Hansie's departure, Matthew Robinson, non-executive Chairman, said "Hansie has been with Goldplat since 2013 and his contributions to the Group's development over those years has been immense. We have all enjoyed working with Hansie and wish him great success in his new venture."
