Prior to this, Brad held senior positions at Newcrest Mining Ltd, one of the world’s largest gold mining companies, including General Manager of Newcrest’s West African operations. From 2008 to 2013, Brad was the CEO of AIM/ASX listed Discovery Metals Ltd, where he was hired to lead the project financing, construction and subsequent production of the Company’s flagship copper asset in Botswana. Other notable positions include General Manager at Goldfields’ operations in South Africa and Australia.

The outgoing CEO, Sean Bennett, will step down on 4 June 2018. Sean will remain available to the Company to support the financing developments.

David Hathorn, Non-executive Chairman, said: “I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Brad Sampson as the new CEO. He is a highly experienced mining engineer and CEO who has spent over a decade of his career building and managing projects on the African continent. His appointment reflects the next chapter for Kore Potash as we approach the financing and project construction stages.

On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Sean for his significant contribution and, in particular, for his role in raising the capital required for the Definitive Feasibility Study, and in leading the Company in its redomicile and listings on AIM and the JSE. Sean joined in 2015 and leaves the business in a very strong position to deliver the Sintoukola Potash Project.”
