In conjunction with the appointment of Mr Wooldridge, Mr. Martin Holland will transition from Managing Director and Executive Chairman to Executive Chairman only. Mr. Holland has been instrumental to the success of Cobre and will continue to have a very active and strategic role in the Company as Executive Chairman. Mr Holland was a Founder of Cobre and has spent the last four years transitioning and establishing the Company as a leading copper-focused exploration Company with high quality, global copper assets, whilst building a strong board, technical, and management team.

Commenting on Mr Wooldridge's appointment Cobre's Executive Chairman, Martin Holland, said:

"We're delighted to announce the appointment of Adam as the new CEO of Cobre, who will be joining our senior management team. With his proven track record in Africa, and specifically Botswana, Adam's appointment represents a strong combination of bringing together the right person, at the right place, at the right time. As I transition from Executive Chairman and Managing Director to Executive Chairman only, I look very forward to continuing this exciting journey alongside Adam as we collectively grow the Company from strength to strength. This is another highly strategic appointment, and our focus remains on unlocking significant value in the Kalahari Copper Belt in Botswana."

Commenting on his appointment as CEO, Mr Wooldridge said:

"With the ongoing exploration success we are having in Botswana, I am both honoured and excited to be joining Cobre as the new CEO. I have enjoyed my time as CEO of KML and look forward to contributing on a much broader, strategic level now that I am embedded within the senior management team as Cobre's CEO.

The relationship I have with the Cobre Board and management team has been very rewarding and sets a strong foundation for future success. I look forward to continuing to work together as we develop this exciting and emerging new copper district in the KCB. In conjunction with the highly focussed technical team appointed in the middle of this year, as well as a strong and aligned senior management team, I strongly believe we have all of the right ingredients for further exploration success."
