BCI Minerals’ (BCI) Managing Director and CEO has submitted his resignation to the board.  

Alwyn Vorster announced his decision to step down from his position by the end of 2022 after more than six years in the role, citing his desire to pursue non-executive advisory roles and personal interests.

 “Alwyn has been CEO of BCI since May 2016, having been CEO of Iron Ore Holdings for four years up to its acquisition by BCI in 2014,” BCI Chairman Brian O’Donnell said.

“He has led the company through a period of great change, including the development of our flagship Mardie project from acquisition to commencement of construction.”

Mr Voster said it had been a privilege leading BCI’s progress, from iron ore exploration to BCI’s current flagship Mardie Salt and Potash project in Western Australia.

“During the transition period, I look forward to working with the BCI team to manage this period of industry headwinds,” Mr Vorster said.

“I am confident that we have created the building blocks for BCI to have a successful future, and am grateful for the support provided by our major shareholders, the board and BCI’s employees, and other important stakeholders.”

The BCI Minerals board has now begun a search process for a new Chief Executive Officer.   

BCI Minerals last traded at 24 cents on July 14.
