EcoGraf (EGR) has announced that independent Non-Executive Director Christoph Frey has resigned from his position, effective immediately.

The company, formally known as Kibaran Resources, is developing a facility in Kwinana, Western Australia, to produce high purity graphite for use in the lithium-ion battery industry.

This will form part of a vertically-integrated business to produce battery anode graphite for export to Asia, Europe and North America.

As such, Mr Frey has stepped down from the EcoGraf board so as to ensure there are no potential conflicts of interest and to ensure ongoing programs are in line with the company’s corporate governance principles regarding independence.

Shares in EcoGraf are trading steadily today for 6.8 cents each.
