Tony Manini, Executive Chairman of Asiamet Resources Commented:

"We are pleased to have Matthew Doube join the Asiamet board as a Non-Executive Director at this critically important time for the Company. Matthew brings an extensive background in corporate finance and M&A investment banking, together with a strong and current network across Australasian banks and financial institutions. As the Company progresses its flagship BKM copper project through financing and into development, Matthew's appointment strengthens the Board's capacity to support and assist management in these key areas of the business.

The Asiamet Board composition will continue to evolve as the Company transitions from explorer to developer, and in turn, operator. As part of this evolution and co-incident with the appointment of Matt Doube as a Non-Executive Director, Mr Faldi Ismail has elected to retire from the Board after 14 years of service.
