Directorate

Matthew Idiens, a founder and Director of VANE since it was admitted to trading on AIM in 2004, has resigned from his role as an executive Director at VANE, but has agreed to remain on the Board as a non-executive Director.

Sir Richard Needham, Chairman of VANE, commented:

“Matt has had an enormous and crucial input into the development of VANE in his role as an executive Director and we are delighted that he has agreed to continue to support the Company in a non-executive role. In the past year we have strengthened the Board with the appointment of David
Newton, his knowledge of capital markets complementing the geological knowledge and technical skills of Steve Van Nort, Clark Arnold and Kris Hefton.”
