It is with deep regret and sadness that, shareholders of diversified resources group Exxaro are advised, in compliance with paragraph 3.59 of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements, that Mr RP (Rick) Mohring, an independent non-executive director of the Company, has passed away this morning.
Rick has been a dedicated member of the Board since 28 November 2006 and served as Remuneration Committee chairman, as well as member of the Audit, Social and Ethics and Sustainability, Risk and Compliance Committees.
Rick had an illustrious career of 37 years in the mining industry on his retirement in December 2003, after which he continued providing guidance and advice to the industry through Mohring Mining Consulting. In 2012 he received the South African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy’s prestigious Brigadier Stokes award, which award is made to an individual for the very highest achievement in the South African mining and metallurgical industry.
Rick will not only be missed by the Company, but the entire mining industry.
The Board wishes to express its sincerest appreciation to Rick for his tireless and dedicated effort towards Exxaro until the end, as well as its heartfelt condolences to Lynette and their family.
