Auris Minerals has announced the resignation of chief executive Wade Evans, months after chairman Bronwyn Barnes was voted off the company’s board.

Perth-based Auris said Mr Evans, who was appointed to the role last year, had ceased employment, with finance executive Mike Hendriks set to fill the role on an initial three-month consultancy arrangement.

The news com after Ms Barnes and independent director Susan Vearncombe were voted off the company’s board, after a group of dissident shareholders gained enough support to pass a number of resolutions at a special meeting in April.

Ms Barnes was appointed to represent the interests of major shareholder Investmet, and she can not be removed until a replacement to represent the interests of Investment has been appointed.

Auris said today that a request was forwarded to Investmet in May to provide names for a replacement, but the shareholder had not yet responded.

Shares in Auris were flat at 6.5 cents each today.
