Africa-focused battery metals investment and exploration company Marula Mining has strengthened its management team with a number of key appointments, including that of Tokkas van Heerden as COO.

Van Heerden will be responsible for the successful development and operation of Marula's mining operations throughout Africa.

Marula has also appointed Henk van Zyl GM of its Southern Africa operations and Edward Ruheni GM of its East Africa operations.

Further, Melissa Ndele has been appointed group financial controller, Shiko Muchai joint company secretary, Faith Kinyanjui investor relations manager and Eunice Wairima social corporate responsibility and environmental, social and governance manager. These four executives will all be based at the company's headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.

Marula also plans to announce a number of key independent and nonexecutive board appointments ahead of its listing on the LSE's Aim market.

“The past several months have proven to be transformational for Marula and have seen the company go from strength to strength, with a number of milestones in all of its planned mine operations and mine development activities.

“This growth and our ongoing transition to being an operational mining and mine investing and development company requires us to strengthen our management team if we are to deliver on our growth strategy, and new mine operations in the battery metals sector in Africa," comments CEO Jason Brewer.

Marula has interests and investments in the Blesberg lithium and tantalum mine, in South Africa, and the Nkombwa Hill niobium, tantalum, rare earths and phosphate project, in Zambia.
