Directorate Change

Edenville Energy Plc (AIM: EDL), the AIM quoted company developing the Rukwa coal project in southwest Tanzania, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Alistair Muir to the Company's Board as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect.

Mr Muir has over 25 years operational experience within the mining industry, having spent the majority of that time working in the coal, uranium and iron ore sectors. He has extensive expertise in open-pit mine development, project evaluation and exploration, particularly in the coal and power generation sectors, having worked on both thermal and coking coal initiatives.

In addition Mr Muir has predominantly operated in emerging markets throughout his career, most recently in Tanzania, Turkey and Central Asia. Previous roles include General Manager of UraniumSA; Managing Director and Director of Celsius Coal Ltd, an ASX listed Company where he participated in the restructuring of the company to Celsius Resources as it migrated its operations into the battery minerals sector; and Chief Representative for Europe and the Middle East of Azarga Resources Ltd, where he led project teams to evaluate new projects within the region.

The Board would like to advise that Arun Srivastava has resigned as a Non-Executive Director of the Company with immediate effect to concentrate on his other business interests.

He brings with him a wealth of both operational and emerging markets experience, whilst also having significant historic mining experience in Tanzania.
